In 2006 a new tragedy began when Gardasil was approved for young girlsThat Australia has its own special but scandalous place in the history of HPV vaccines is well documented in my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed published in 2017 by Spinifex Press, Australia. I became interested in the area of cervical cancer in the 1980s after I was diagnosed with cervical dysplasia and have followed the issue of cervical cancer and its resurrection from a disease of obscurity to one of new-found prominence. Australia could well be considered the birthplace of Gardasil for it was Professor Ian Frazer and his partner who produced an HPV virus-like particle at the University of Queensland. In 2007, Australia was one of the first countries to offer Gardasil to 12-13 year-old girls and a catch-up program for females 14-26 years even though this cancer was rare with 1.7 deaths per 100,000 Australian women. In 2013, the government subsidised vaccination program was extended to boys and again we were among the first in the world to vaccinate boys with this dangerous vaccine. In late 2017 the health minister Greg Hunt accompanied by the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull made a special TV announcement that Gardasil 9 was to replace the quadrivalent vaccine in the new year. This special broadcast which included the Prime Minister illustrated the unambiguous support that our government has for this vaccine and vaccines in general. There is no denying the adverse effects of Gardasil and Gardasil 9. According to the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration’s websitethere have been over 4300 reported adverse events. There is at least one death that of Gabby Larkin following Gardasil reported by a medical practitioner which was recorded on the database but now the Regulator states that this is but a coincidence and not a cause, so currently her death is not listed. Of course there are many more serious adverse events that have never been reported. Patrice Larkin’s daughter Gabby wanted to have the vaccine. Gabby was a normal healthy teenager. Gabby and her friends were very aware of the Australian media hype that preceded the rollout of Gardasil including websites urging girls to be ‘one less’ to die from cervical cancer. Patrice Larkin felt that the vaccine wasn’t needed and told her daughter that it was very new and that she should wait another year, but to no avail. After her first Gardasil vaccine in 2009, 16 year-old Gabby started complaining of a headache that didn’t go away. Three weeks later she had right-sided abdomen pain that was found to be caused by a small cell ovarian cancer. The tumour subsequently burst and herright ovary was removed. Gabby began chemotherapy almost immediately and sadly died shortly after. One of the chapters in Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed deals with the history of cervical cancer. Prior to the HPV causation theory the focus was on socio economic and environmental factors. Researchers found that poverty and inequality were in some way implicated in the disease process along with nutritional deficiencies, smoking and other environmental toxins. I continue to explore the question of cancer recognizing it as a modern, man-made disease Researchers at Manchester University found that the first descriptions of distinctive tumours have only occurred in the past 200 years, such as scrotal cancer in chimney sweeps in 1775, and Hodgkin’s disease in 1832. Cancer as we know it really began in the late 1700s to early 1800s. At this time the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) took off due to the combination of arsenic and antibiotics being used in agriculture according to Anthony William author of Medical Medium: Secrets behind chronic and mystery illness and how to finally heal This was the start of the industrial revolution and the production and use of chemicals. For the first time in history humans were exposed to solvents, fungicides, herbicides, radiation and heavy metals. It was the birth of the fossil fuel industry leading to toxic emissions dangerous for human health. EBV is also the source of numerous health problems that are currently considered mystery illnesses, such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. And if EBV is then research done by HPV researcher Lloyd. W Phillips in Gardasil Syndrome is extremely worrying. Gardasil Syndrome is a ‘debilitating and sometimes fatal pathophysiology’ – following Gardasil a genetically engineered vaccine. The Phases include
- Hyperactivation of the immune system caused by the aluminum nanoparticle adjuvant in HPV vaccines (ASIA)
- Sepsis caused by sustained adjuvant-driven mass apoptosis
Pap testsAnd why did this vaccine get fast-tracked when we had a diagnostic method in the Pap smear and excellent treatment for cancer at least in western nations? The importance of the role that Pap smear testing played in bringing down the death rate of cervical cancer is neglected in the public conversation. My chapter on Pap smears includes information of the role of the screening programs and improved living conditions. Death rates from cervical cancer in 1968 were 7.7 cases per 100,000 Australian women falling steadily over the decades and in 2007 at the start of the HPV vaccination program there were 1.7 deaths per 100,000 women. But once HPV theory was developed and vaccines produced and marketed socio economic and environmental causative factors and the role of cervical cancer screening were replaced by the familiar media hype. In the early 1980s, Harald zur Hausen found the human papilloma virus, HPV type 16, in approximately 50% of cervical tumours and HPV type 18 in approximately 20% of cases. Initially, when zur Hausen approached pharmaceutical companies with his idea of developing a vaccine against HPV, he was turned down. They told him it wouldn’t be worth their while developing a vaccine and felt there were more pressing problems to work on. But science was not deterred and when Ian Fraser and his co-developer Jian Zhou found that they couldn’t grow the HPV virus in the lab. As Madonna King wrote in her book Ian Frazer: The Man Who Saved a Million Lives Frazer and Zhou ‘reasoned’ that “If HPV couldn’t be grown … then perhaps they could build their own version of the virus” And that’s what they did.
The rollout of Gardasil in AustraliaThis was preceded by years of promotion by the manufacturer Merck and CSL Ltd, the New Zealand and Australian distributor culminating in a relentless propaganda campaign during which Ian Frazer became our national hero and was awarded the 2006 Australian of the Year Prize. In the same year the nation watched as Fraser the ‘acclaimed’ scientist vaccinated the first Australian girl with Gardasil. Documenting how Gardasil was sold to the public would not be complete without the inclusion of the role played by commercial interests such as CSL Ltd, and that of Australian politics. In November 2006, CSL’s first application for listing Gardasil on the national immunisation register was declined by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC). Tony Abbott, who was the federal Minister for Health at the time, defended the committee’s decision not to approve Gardasil but due to an intense public outcry, Prime Minister John Howard stepped in, promising the electorate that the vaccine would be approved. Interestingly in 1996, a decade earlier, Janette Howard the wife of the PM was diagnosed with cervical cancer and underwent surgery. At the time the site of her cancer was not revealed but in October 2006 just before Gardasil was approved she announced that her earlier brush with cancer was cervical. Convenient timing! Newspapers covered her speech and in early 2007, the then federal Minister for Health Tony Abbott announced to the Australian people that the cervical cancer vaccination program was set to begin. The Australian mainstream media has form with the issue of vaccination.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp papers regularly run stories denigrating ‘anti vaxxers’WOULD you kill a baby today? Would you put him through horrific pain? Would you take away his oxygen and let him suffocate to death? Well, if you haven’t vaccinated your own children, you are doing all those things. You killed four-week-old Riley Hughes, who died this week.. Go to your childcare centre on Monday and tell them you don’t want them to admit any unvaccinated kids. Tell your friends not to come over if they haven’t had their needles. This ‘opinion piece’ was part of the Murdoch media group’s relentless No Jab, No Play campaign which was adopted by the Australian government, becoming the coercive No Jab, No Pay law in January 2016. In Australia, failure to have your child vaccinated according to vaccine schedule penalizes the family by loss of government payments and in some states denies your child of a place in childcare and in pre-school. These laws were enacted to make parents compliant to the ever-increasing taxpayer-funded children’s vaccination schedule. In this way the government makes vaccination compulsory without actually mandating it.
Our ABCOur government funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation our ABC is also extremely pro vaccination. An example of this media bias involved a story on Gardasil shown on an ABC program called Media Watch. This particular episode turned the spotlight on The Northern Star, a smallish paper serving the people of the Northern Rivers, a rural region in the state of New South Wales. It’s about us page informs that it focuses strongly on readers, with stories told through the eyes, ears and mouths of local people. And that’s what it was doing when it ran the story with the headline ‘Teen left in wheelchair after Gardasil HPV vaccine ‘reaction But no the media wasn’t going to have Gardasil blamed for the teen’s illness. In 2014 Olivia Odey became ill suffering joint pain, along with tingling and numbness along with heart palpitations. The young teenager needed a wheelchair to get around. After 8 months of seeking help from our medical system she was finally referred to a specialised pain doctor and diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome and central neural sensitisation syndrome.’ Odey said she believed that her ill-health began shortly after she was given her Gardasil shot. “I definitely think there was a link, but there’s no way to prove it, Odey told The Northern Star, ” acknowledging that her reality was denied by her doctors. The Northern Star was doing its job of informing the local community that all is not well in regard to Gardasil. However this Media Watch episode upheld the censorship that has seen our media continually ignore the suffering of thousands of girls and now boys who have become ill. Media Watch approached The Northern Star with its criticism resulting in the paper agreeing to change the headline of the story to ‘Teen’s nightmare battle with mystery illness’. How does the program get away with this? And why did The Northern Star agree?
CartoonistsSometimes it is up to others such as cartoonists to show us the way The Age newspaper’s cartoonist Michael Leunig has been known to do his best ‘Some mothers do ‘ave’ em They have maternal instincts that contradict what science thinks Leunig was accused of being an anti-vaxxer; others argued it was irresponsible for The Age to publish the cartoon, and others whose family members had suffered from preventable diseases took personal offence. These cartoon were not recent though – they wouldn’t see light of day now.
In my book I tell the story of Kristin ClulowKristin is a 26-year-old Australian woman who received the first of the three shots of Gardasil in 2008.
Reproductive problems post GardasilDoing my research for my book I discovered that although mainstream media and most doctors remain silent about the problems emanating from this vaccination program, some doctors have reporting the adverse effects on young women’s health. In the BMJ (British Medical Journal) Case Reports authors Deidre Little and Harvey Rodrick Grenville Ward of Australia reported the case of a patient with amenorrhoea who noticed that her usual regular menstrual cycle had changed, becoming irregular and then scant after Gardasil. Since this first report Deidre Little who is an Australian general practitioner in a small NSW town has reported on seven patients with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency who told her their symptoms came on after their Gardasil. If there are seven reports from her small town then we can expect that there are many more girls suffering the same unnecessary, but serious and life-changing condition after their Gardasil shots. I listened to an interview where researcher Lloyd Phillips was asked if the vaccines are causing sterility. His reply was chilling “In my son’s school Gardasil is known as the instant abortion drug”. He states that when a girl becomes pregnant and wants an abortion it is suggested by other students that she go and have a Gardasil vaccination.
Most Australian parents are not informed about Gardasil.They have been brainwashed by the media, their doctors, politicians and the school system. So much so that 80% of girls and 76% of boys aged 15 were fully vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV) in 2017 Australians on the whole have accepted the HPV vaccination program as ‘a rite of passage’ as espoused by Public health physician Associate Professor Julia Brotherton ‘It is also about really just normalising HPV vaccine as almost like a rite of passage. So when you’re in your first year of high school, you get vaccinated against HPV to prevent you against cancer in the future.’ The vaccine is given in year 7, the first year of high school. On the injection day they are also given the DTPa vaccine. So two vaccines at once. And 2 doses of the aluminium adjuvant plus other chemicals. Why are they both given them on the same day, at the same time? Deliberate? How can you prove which vaccine caused the reaction? Also with the consent for both shots on the same form I would guess that some parents are agreeable to the DTPa and not Gardasil so the child goes along to the vaccination nurse and some are getting Gardasil as well. Indeed parents are reporting that they have signed for the DTP a and not for Gardasil 9 but the teenagers are being given the two anyway.
HPV test replaces Pap smearI have already spoken about the great success of the Australian National Cervical Screening Program in reducing the number of deaths from cervical cancer. But now we have replaced the successful Pap smear program with an HPV test. In December 2017 the successful two-yearly pap tests for women aged between 18 and 69 were replaced by a five-yearly HPV test for 25 to 74-year-olds. This is problematic: The test is predicated on the basis that HPV causes cervical cancer. But we do not know that. 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. Part of us. If this new HPV test finds that a woman has HPV type 16 or 18, she will be given a colposcopy to look for any pre-cancerous cervical lesions. And if the HPV test finds any of the other high risk strains of HPV, then a Pap test will be ordered to ascertain if a colposcopy is required All of this of course will result in more colposcopies, and a lot of unnecessary worry for women who return a positive HPV test. And a great business opportunity for those in the sickness industry including the vaccine industry – for this is sure to mean more women lining up for HPV vaccines and more adverse events resulting in more sick girls and boys who then need expensive treatments if they are to recover their former health. . With these changes to the screening program there is particular concern for women who test negative for HPV but who have cervical cancer. These HPV-negative women will not have their disease found as early as they would have with a routine Pap smear.
But the fairy tale continue:In October last year The Australian press hailed that the end of cervical cancer was nigh We were told that: WOMEN won’t have to worry about cervical cancer within 20 years. Australia is on track to be the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer by 2035. Rates will continue to drop to below four in 100,000 by 2035. But of course it already was a rare cancer before they began the vaccination program
Increase in cervical cancerSo once again Australians were bombarded with this message that the vaccination program is working so well whereas research is showing that there is actually an increase in some countries in cervical cancer in the 20-35 year olds meaning that the vaccine might be actually increasing the incidence of cervical cancer in the girls who have been vaccinated. And this is the case in Australia also according to research by The French oncologist Dr Gerard Delepine Since vaccination, in all the countries that have implemented a large vaccination program, there is a reversal of the trend with a significant increase in the frequency of invasive cancers in the most vaccinated groups But such troubling developments are not relayed to the Australian public who continue to believe and do what they have been told. As they did in 2007 and started to have their daughters vaccinated with Gardasil and even the industry wasn’t convinced. In August 2018 Joan Shenton’s documentary Sacrificial Virgins was shown around Australia. The UK author and journalist was invited to attend the events but was denied her visiting visa. Public discussion of vaccines is avoided at all costs in Australia, especially one that questions the safety of Gardasil. I strongly agree with the statement made by author and journalist Joan Shenton in a press release at the time The responsible thing is to suspend such programs until independent science gives the all clear. And with Queensland the birthplace of Gardasil, many Australians think their country should be taking a lead in behaving responsibly over this. We are trying … but as I have discussed in Australia the impediments to free speech on this matter are huge and powerful. And they get stronger every day as we begin to make a difference.
Dissent in AustraliaAround the country unvaccinated families are forming their own child care and play groups rather than vaccinate their children in order to have them admitted to regular kinder and childcare. Efforts to warn the public of the dangers in our current vaccination schedule and about HPV vaccination include stickers and the placement of our message on billboards if we are able to have them placed at all. Now we are not allowed to have any billboards placed that go against public health policy. The following artwork was knocked back by various billboard companies on the grounds that advertising connected to therapeutic goods must align with health campaigns
The health of our young people is in serious danger. I am seeing the damage everywhere.
All so unnecessary and tragic.
In the words of Dr Sherri Tenpenny
“True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200-year mistake.”
And Gardasil is becoming the biggest mistake of all.
