It's controversial. The HPV vaccine. Some say it will prevent
cancer. Others are not so sure. One woman in Sparks, Maryland knows
that it killed her daughter.
Annapolis resident, Josh Mazer has been critical of the way this vaccine has been marketed to children. After all, it IS a sexually transmitted disease. Mazer uncovered a letter sent to all the school superintendents in the state encouraging them to push the vaccine and suggesting that it should be included with typical pre-school vaccinations. He also dug up $90 million that the State received to market the drug.
The State is beginning to listen, but Mazer feels they have a long way to go.
The genesis of this episode was an opinion piece in The Capital. It piqued our interest and we sat down with Josh with an open mind and learned a lot. And for those who will immediately jump on the "he's a wacko, nut-job, anti-vaxxer" bandwagon--he's not. And we address that!
Listen, learn, question. We did. You owe it to yourself and your kids to do the same!
