Discussion

This research looks at the prevalence of HPV in women before and after the HPV vaccine. The rates of infection amongst those who were vaccinated were significantly lower than for those who were not vaccinated.

You can see a discussion on the research at HPV Infection Rates Plummet In Young Women Due To Vaccine

Strengths/Weaknesses

Conclusions

Strength/Weakness 1

Strong strength: Well Designed Research

The research did a good job of looking at the different subtypes of HPV and allowing for various contributing factors which may have had an effect on the results.


Strength/Weakness 2

Strong strength: Adequate Sample Size

The research looked at information for thousands of women to reach this conclusion


Conclusion 1

The vaccine appears to be responsible for a significant decrease in HPV rates among recipients.


Conclusion 2

If diseases were wiped out in the past by advances in hygiene, then how do we explain a new vaccine decimating a disease supposedly unaffected by hygiene?


Conclusion 3

If diseases were wiped out in the past by advances in nutrition, then how do we explain a new vaccine decimating a disease supposedly unaffected by nutrition?
