It seems natural to believe that any vaccine recommended by doctors and marketed to girls as young as nine years old is relatively safe. However, a case recently published in the BMJ (formerly known as the British Medical Journal) blows some holes in that whimsical notion. This particular case report spotlights the story of a healthy 16-year-old Australian girl whose womanhood appears to have been stolen by Gardasil vaccinations, which are designed to protect against human papilloma virus (HPV). Yes, one girl’s ovaries were completely destroyed, with Gardasil the only potential cause.
Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, yet she is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines. Simply put, Dr. Harper says that Gardasil and Cervarix are not safe. It’s apparently weighed so heavily on her mind that she couldn’t keep it in any longer and went public so she can “sleep at night.” In a presentation at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, Dr. Harper laid out her defense for bypassing the Gardasil vaccine: “About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life. Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 percent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.” In other words, there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless. In fact, there is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer. From the manufacturer’s own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about the same as the chance of him being struck by a meteorite.
If that weren’t enough, all trials of the vaccines were done on children aged fifteen and above, despite them currently being marketed for nine-year-olds, as previously mentioned. So far, a whopping 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions. The reported side effects include Guillian Barré Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently — sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation. As a rule, parents are usually not made aware of these risks. The shot has also been linked to full-blown cervical cancer and outbreaks of the very genital warts it is supposed to help protect from in the first place. In fact, because of this cornucopia of adverse side effects, the Japanese government has officially stopped recommending the HPV vaccines and has begun warning its citizens against taking the shot.
As can be seen, researchers are still in the process of finding out what Gardasil is capable of doing to kids, but respected authorities across the board, including the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics, are acting like it’s perfectly safe. In fact, Gardasil has been given the stamp of approval by the World Health Organization (WHO), European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), despite the fact that, at the time of writing, 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines. Closer to home, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two HPV vaccines: Merck’s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline’s Cervarix. Back in February, Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in regard to the HPV vaccine and the government’s National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). When the information was finally received, it revealed that of 200 claims filed, the U.S. government has paid out nearly $6 million in damages to 49 HPV vaccine victims through VICP — and more than half the claims are still awaiting evaluation.
So, the question is why do young women and girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway? Could it be because the two vaccines combined to rake in over $2 billion in profits just last year? Money: is that the reason for such an aggressive marketing campaign? Perhaps.
As a disclaimer, there may in fact be no sinister motives lurking behind this monolithic push for the Gardasil injections. With the start of a new school year imminent, health officials across the country have been encouraging girls to get the vaccine along with their required vaccines for school, claiming it to be a “necessary prevention” to the development of cervical cancer down the road. However, the fact remains that the leading researcher in the development of the vaccine said she felt the known risks associated with the vaccine outweighed the proposed risk of not getting vaccinated. The fact also remains that a 16-year-old girl has been thrust into full-fledged menopause, her ovaries irrevocably shut down, seemingly because of the three Gardasil injections she received. Regardless, think twice – actually, think about 50 or 60 times – about any vaccinations recommended to you or your children, no matter how universally approved and glamorized they may be. Do your homework, weigh the benefits and risks, and make a decision based on education and prayer. One site for reflection on the pros and cons of Gardasil in particular can be found here. Godspeed.
