About Cancer
Basic Cancer Knowledge
First cancer were found in Egyptian and pre columbian mumies about 5,000 to 2,400 years ago. They were documented in ancient medical writing, written in papyrus 3,500 years ago. Nowadays, the reason behind cancer still not clearly understood. Scientist believe that cancer is the cell which grow rapidly than normal, assume abnormal shapes and sizes.
Cancer Worldwide Affects! And The Natural Treatments
There was a movie in the 1990's called 'The Medicine Man', where a scientist discovers the cure for cancer; whilst it still continues to kill people, it is not always the death sentence it once was. Think about that for a moment; can you even imagine the impact this would have on our world if the suffering of so many people could be put to an end?
Can Cancer Be Prevented And Cured?
While the answer to the question regarding the cure for cancer remains not guaranteed even by the experts, there are still ways that this second deadliest disease can be prevented. After all, prevention is supposed to be better than the cure, right?

Is Cervical Cancer The Real Threat We've Been Led To Believe?
With the vast amount of media attention given to cervical cancer since the introduction of the new HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccines, any female or parent could certainly be forgiven for believing that the risk of cervical cancer is a serious health threat to the female population.

But exactly how serious is the risk, and what percentage of the population is actually affected?

Consider these facts. Cervical cancer only represents a small proportion of all cancer diagnoses and deaths each year. For example, according to the American Cancer Society, American women are 16 times more likely to develop breast cancer than cervical cancer. And once diagnosed, they are 11 times more likely to die from breast cancer than they are from cervical cancer.

To put this in terms of real numbers, U.S.A. estimates for 2007 indicated that of the 11,150 that were likely to be diagnosed of cervical cancer, 3670 were estimated to die. This equates to an approximate risk of 1 in 100,000 (U.S.A. population) chance of being diagnosed with cervical cancer, and an approximate 1 in 1,000,000 (U.S.A.) population chance of actually dying from the disease.

The question every female and every parent or caregiver of young daughters / females must ask themselves is this:

Does this kind of risk warrant a mass recommendation (and in some cases - mandating) of a new drug or medical procedure onto such large sections of the (female) population so soon after its introduction onto the market, - given that the drug or medical procedure itself carries its own risk and potential complications (both in the short and long term), and given that prior to its public introduction, a drug's testing is limited to a clinical trial setting?

The truth is this.

While the risk of cervical cancer has been highlighted (and many would believe - exaggerated) in recent campaigns throughout the world, the fact is that the serious risks associated with the 2 new HPV vaccines said to provide protection against this disease - (Gardasil and Cervarix) - have been seriously down-played, overlooked or deliberately side-stepped.

The introduction of these new vaccines raises many more questions than it answers. Simply put, anyone considering either of these vaccines should be thoroughly aware of the actual risk of cervical cancer, before consenting to a procedure that in itself has been associated with risks and outcomes even more tragic and permanent than an actual cervical cancer diagnosis.
