Dear Café Scientifiquers, our next café will happen on Tuesday September 24th, 7:30pm at The Railway Club. Our speaker for the evening will be Ian Cromwell, a health economics researcher at the BC Cancer Agency. The title of his talk is:

The HPV Vaccine and You: What You Need to Know to Make an Informed Choice

With British Columbia recently approving the HPV vaccine in young women across the province, members of the public have been engaged in a conversation about the value and safety of the vaccine. Ian Cromwell will discuss the vaccine and introduce the available evidence supporting the policy. He will also address some of the specific concerns people in British Columbia have about the vaccine, with a grounding in the scientific literature.

    So, will Ian Cromwell mention this:

    “The rate of serious adverse events is greater than the incidence rate of cervical cancer,” and the numbers bear out her statement. Merck and the CDC have determined that 1 out of every 912 who received Gardasil in a large study, (see page 8) died. Yet, the cervical cancer death rate is only 1 out of every 40,000 women per year. In other words, girls are better off not taking the shot because the Gardasil shot kills the girls in greater numbers than does the disease it purports to treat.”
