If you still think these risks are worth taking on to avoid HPV -- in other words, you'd rather die than raise your risk of getting cervical cancer -- consider this: A recent study found that the vaccine actually raises women's risk of getting the disease, which is the exact opposite of its stated purpose! The only reason this study hasn't gotten a lot of publicity is because the journal had to retract it shortly after publishing it because the author had used a pseudonym.
