Just another case of medical misogyny

New research shows that since the cervical cancer vaccine has been introduced there has been a 90% drop in young women with genital warts caused by the Human Papilloma virus. Researchers claim that over the next few decades there will be similar reduction in rates of cervical cancer. However it has never been proven that the HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer. There is no scientific evidence of any kind.In 2005 I wrote about the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil, in an article called The Politics of Pap Smears.  I became interested in the disease, its causation and treatments after a routine pap smear had turned up some suspicious  cervical cells and the recommended treatment was a hysterectomy. Being 35 years old and a mother it was assumed that I no longer needed a uterus so let’s just whip it out!  I sought a second opinion and am happy to declare my womb still lives and breathes within me.

Half the adult population is infected with HPV yet only 1 per cent of women develop the cancer. HPV is naturally cleared from the body within two years by more than 90 per cent of those who become infected. The year 2000 figures on the mortality rates for cervical cancer are 3.3 women per 100,000 in the US, and four women per 100,000 in Australia. Annually  there are about 740 cases of cervical cancer each year and around 270 deaths from the disease in Australia. Mortality rates generally increase with age with the highest number of deaths occurring in the 75-79 age group. Less than 6 per cent of cervical cancer deaths occur in women under 35 years of age.

HPV by itself does not cause cervical cancer. Evidence shows it takes a combination, or co-infections – multiple viruses or virus/bacteria combinations to cause cervical cancer including Epstein Bar virus, HIV, and Chlamydia, along with HPV. There are links  between HPV and the taking of birth control pills and other hormonal drugs and women who smoke have 2.3 times higher incidence of the precancerous lesions that lead to cervical cancer. As in most diseases, diet plays a huge role with nutritious food proving to be preventative against cervical cancer.

In March 2005, the Australian federal government set up a committee to recommend new guidelines for pap smear screening. Head of the committee, Professor Ian Hammond, reported to The World Today ABC radio program:

Basically, what we’ve suggested is these women are being referred far too soon for evaluation, because most of these virus infections will go away. And therefore, it’s been suggested that rather than referring women immediately for evaluation, there should be a delay of one year, to allow the virus to go away, and if the virus hasn’t gone away, or the changes haven’t gone away in one year, then those women will be referred for colposcopy.

Pap smears can prevent over 80 per cent of cervical cancer and yet the Gardasil vaccine is now routinely given to 11-12 year old girls and teenagers.  The FDA requires that new vaccines undergo testing and then a waiting period of four years. But this vaccine was fast-tracked and only tested on 21,000 girls and women before it was injected into millions of teens and women. Dangerous side-effects include multiple sclerosis, encephalitis, blindness, pericarditis, coma, and  over 100 deaths have been reported  and 500 girls been left permanently disabled. These figures according to Natural News  are based on voluntary reporting  which means only two to ten percent of cases are represented. The vast majority of cases are never reported.

The news that this vaccine program has been hailed as an “outstanding success” was announced at a sexual health conference in Melbourne on October 16.  And on the ABC TV news that night, health reporter Sophie Scott merely mouthed the drivel most likely read straight from a press release. There were no questions asked: no mention of reactions, let alone the deaths or the momentous fact that there is no evidence that HPV causes cervical  cancer.
No wonder the mainstream media is on its last legs!
