Oh, By the Way, We Cured Cancer…

By Brian | May 19, 2006 | Share on Facebook

This story was the third story on the evening news last night, and it didn’t even make the front page of the New York Times:

WASHINGTON, May 18 (AP) – A vaccine that blocks viruses that cause most cervical cancer is safe and effective and should be approved, a federal panel recommended on Thursday. The maker said the vaccine could cut global deaths from the cancer by more than two-thirds.

Wow. I mean, isn’t this a really big deal? Where’s the banner headline? The special address to the nation by the President praising the researchers for all their hard work, etc.? Is this how the world found out about the Polio vaccine too?

Kind of “ho hum” if you ask me (not that you did or anything…)

    This has been ‘news’ for quite a while, only the FDA portion is significant. Also, there’s controversy, because HPV is sexually transmitted, and many (probably including the President, or at least his conservative backers) feel that this vaccine would promote promiscuity.
