  • RE: HPV vaccines - the uncertainty of science

    In the last years there have been countless reports concerning the adverse effects of HPV vaccines. The well-received article by Toshihiro Nakajima that showed a HPV vaccination associated neuro-immunopathetic syndrome is but one. There is hardly any justification to retract the paper.
    It behooves us to be reminded that Science is never about certainty. In fact it is in the uncertainty of science that grounds it. A good scientist should have no qualms accepting well-researched results from all angles.
