One of the questions raised during my health talks was whether to go for vaccination against cancer or not.
Take the case of cervical cancer, a disease whereby abnormal cells are formed in the cervical wall and the third most most common cancer among Malaysian women.
The authority encourages the public to have their daughters protected against Human Papillomavirus (HPV) by getting them vaccinated.
The rationale is cervical infection by HPV is one of the main causes of cervical cancer. HPV vaccination can prevent HPV type 16 and 18 infections and reduce the risk of getting cervical cancer.
The Ministry of Health Malaysia is currently providing FREE HPV vaccination to all girls in Form 1 and 13-year-old Malaysian girls.
A total of 3 doses of HPV vaccination will be given within 6 months.
I understand that parents have to give the consent for their daugthers to get vaccinated.
Since you have the choice, you decide yourself.
Is vaccination really good for health in the long run?
Cancer cells form in an acidic enviroment where there is a lack of oxygen.
Isn’t it better not to produce the acidic enviroment (by taking less foods that are acidic in nature) and at the same time do more exercise to inhale fresh oxygen to maintain good health?
You are responsibible for your daughters’ health too.
