Once I met a woman who had worked for years in fashion and modeling. Unsurprisingly, she was strikingly attractive. She was accompanied by her teenage daughter who, by contrast, was rather unremarkable to look at, maybe even a plain-Jane.

The goal of the recommendations was to prevent cancers caused by HPV, such as certain cancers of the digestive tract.
