Study: 1 in 4 U.S. women infected with cervical cancer virus

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- One in four U.S. women ages 14 to 59 is infected with the sexually transmitted virus that in some forms can cause cervical cancer, according to the first broad national estimate.

The figure is mostly in line with previous assessments. The highest prevalence -- nearly 45 percent -- was found in young women within the age range recommended for a new virus-fighting vaccine, according to a report from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Full article.
A lot of people don't know that you get cervical cancer from promiscuity. It's hard for me to have sympathy for victims, in the sense that one sort of "brings it on oneself" the same way that smokers trigger lung cancer. But that is me, being a judgmental, bad Christian. How someone gets into a painful situation says nothing about how I should respond to them and their suffering.

Anyway, this is what widespread premarital sex will get you. Forget about the "vaccine" - which is more or less useless for non-virgins - the best way to prevent cervical cancer is to not sleep with men you're not married to.
