The Mail on Sunday today (28/01/18) published an article in reference to the fact that only girls are vaccinated against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which is wreaking havoc.
New cases of Throat Cancer continue to grow year on year, striking mainly men in the prime of their life. It is now thought the virus which is linked to oral sex can also be acquired by something as innocuous as French kissing. The virus, which can take decades to affect skin cells turning them cancerous, is a silent killer.

The Throat Cancer Foundation is at the forefront of the campaign to persuade the NHS Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to provide immunisation against HPV to boys.
