15. In other words, no unexplained deaths. You were wrong or lying
"2007 cervical cancer deaths are trending down due to increase of Pap tests."

First off those are projections.

2nd, 2007 is trending down with Pap tests? They were just introduced last year? There has been a downward trend for sometime and Pap tests would be important irregardless of vaccination.

http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_Wh...

"Cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer death for American women. Between 1955 and 1992, the number of cervical cancer deaths in the United States dropped by 74%. The main reason for this change is the increased use of the Pap test. This screening procedure can find changes in the cervix before cancer develops. It can also find early cancer in its most curable stage. The death rate from cervical cancer continues to decline by nearly 4% a year."

And this says nothing of the 250,000 women a year worldwide who die from cervical cancer.

What is more likely to have an impact there? Pap tests in areas with virtually no medical care or vaccination?
