Pap smears are no longer the first line of defence against cervical cancer. This big change to cervical cancer screening, which began on December 1, 2017, means that Australian women are now offered an HPV test instead of the successful Pap smear test. Australia’s national Pap smear screening program began in 1991 and resulted in a 50% reduction in new cases and deaths from cervical cancer over a decade.

Details of the changes:

The HPV test is recommended for women every five years whereas Pap smears were performed every two years. Testing now begins at age 25 years and continues until age 74. Previously testing began at 18 and ended when a woman reached 69 years.

The new test is for the presence of the HPV virus on the cervix. The Pap smear looked for changes in the cervical cells that could lead to cancer of the cervix.

Possible over-treatment

Under these new guidelines, women whose tests show the presence of HPV 16 or 18, the highest-risk types, would be given a more thorough test called a colposcopy and those whose tests don’t show HPV 16 or 18 but do show one of the other high-risk HPV types would have a Pap test. A colposcopy is an invasive test where a special magnifying device is used to examine the vulva, vagina  and cervix and cells are collected for further examination. This may be an unnecessary treatment because there is no evidence that HPV causes cervical cancer. Most women with HPV don’t get cervical cancer, and some women get cervical cancer without having HPV infection. The human papilloma virus is a very common infection which is usually cleared from the body within 2 years.

Women who have cervical cancer but are negative for HPV

What happens to women who test negative for HPV and yet have undiagnosed cervical lesions? Without the provision of the routine Pap smear where cervical cells are collected and tested there is the chance that many early cases of cervical cancer will be missed.

There has been little investigation of older women with cervical cancer, but it is likely that the HPV-negative cancers can be found in this group of women. These HPV-negative women will not have their disease found as early as they would have with a routine Pap smear. In other words, it is possible that many early cases of  cervical cancer will be missed under these new guidelines for screening for cervical cancer.

Are these changes good for women?

Well that depends on whether the health authorities have got it right regarding the causation of cervical cancer: that virtually all cases of cervical cancer are caused by specific types of human papilloma virus (HPV). We are told that cervical cancer is caused by HPV but even if the common human papilloma virus is found in tumour cells it may just be a harmless passenger. Joan Shenton, is a British broadcaster and producer of Sacrificial Virgins:  Not for the Greater Good.  Shenton interviewed molecular biologist Professor Peter Duesberg the author of What if HPV does NOT cause cervical cancer?

Duesberg is asked if there is a causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and and cervical cancer. “Absolutely not,” he replied, adding that if HPV is there at all then it is what is known as a passenger virus. “It does nothing…these are fossils of HPV which are still in some cells. They are from an infection decades prior to the cancer.”

Why are we vaccinating a whole generation of teenagers with HPV vaccines?

This is damning and we must ask what on earth we are doing vaccinating girls and boys all over the world with a vaccine protective against a harmless wart virus. But the vaccine is not harmless. On the contrary, there are more adverse events following its administration than for any other vaccine.

Neglected causes of cervical cancer

Sparse attention has been paid to other possible causes of cervical cancer such as smoking, and dietary factors like low levels of Vitamin A and folate. HPV was only proposed as the cause of cervical cancer in the 1980s and even then not all scientists agreed with many questions being raised about the increasingly entrenched theory.  The real causes of cervical cancer are most likely socioeconomic and environmental factors such as poverty, nutritional deficiencies, smoking, multiparity, prolonged contraceptive use and ageing.

This new test is for the presence of HPV and is not a test for cervical cancer. HPV is a very common virus so much so that most of us have had this at some stage in our lives. This truth remains hidden from most of the public for it’s impossible to get the mainstream media to shine a light on the truth about the profitable cervical cancer industry and its useless vaccines which have resulted in well over 73,000 adverse events and hundreds of deaths.
