In the controversial vaccine against HPV, Shobha Krishnan covers some ground. At first, she reminds the reader that this book is a reference book for parents, doctors and youth. It’s a dense book, a research and, well presented and well covered. The book covers three main areas: What is HPV, which he is and what should be done about. In the first section, What is HPV dedicated Shobha Krisnan talking for some time, which is the HPV virus, which is not, its forms and that parents should be concerned. The HPV virus, “said Shobha, a highly dispersed and passes easily from person to person, in its many forms, means sexual or not. It can easily warts and cervical cancer of the anus, and can come and go at their own need or surgical excision and treatment. Because some strains of HPV cervical cancer, an overview of what they can cause cancer is enormous and can be discussed beyond the scope of lay people who are not familiar with medical terminology or exposure . The second area that the HPV vaccine goes into a whole “sell”. This means that an extraordinary amount of work is devoted readers (parents) why the vaccine is necessary (and before that their daughters are sexually active) to persuade the vaccine correctly. Since the main purpose of the book is to prevent cancer of the cervix through vaccination against HPV, it is an explanation of why the parents of the girls, when the result will not be seen for many decades must be vaccinated. One point is that boys should be vaccinated provided, as it causes the first signs that other people infected by strains of the most serious of HPV, cervical cancer and anal cancer. (So far, the United States, is only for Gardisil vaccination against HPV, and only for girls and women to 26 years) admitted. The last area that should be done about the vaccine against HPV is more or less a repetition of the first part of the book. International Development and the underdeveloped countries are affected, such as rates of cervical cancer are much higher than in developed countries. Doctors and health workers in the field “to request that the vaccine is more than just the strains of HPV that lead to cancer of the cervix and anus and the cost to raise a dollar a shot, compared the three-shot requirement of more than $ 120 per shot to cover. The book is a good resource, and advised parents and caregivers of young girls (and boys) who are aware of HPV. Rating: 5.5
