ABC’s Media Watch bullies Northern Rivers newspaper into changing its headline

 

The Northern Star has been in the business of bringing news to the people of the Northern Rivers since 1876. 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 did when it ran ‘Teen left in wheelchair after Gardasil HPV vaccine ‘reaction’. However the story about teenager Olivia Odey now has a new headline ‘Teen’s nightmare battle with mystery illness’.

Some Background:

Olivia Odey became ill three years ago complaining of joint pain, along with tingling and numbness. She also suffered light sensitivity and heart palpitations. The young teenager couldn’t stand up and needed a wheelchair to get around. After 8 months of seeking help from our medical system which as usual in the case of vaccine injury was devoid of any clues, Olivia upon referral to a specialised pain doctor was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome and central neural sensitisation syndrome. Reporter  Alina Rylkor described the syndrome as ‘Her nervous system interpreted signals sent through her body as pain messages.’ After months of rehabilitation and pain management the teenager has now recovered.  Odey believes 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.

This week Media Watch upheld the censorship that has seen the media continually ignore the suffering of thousands of girls and now boys who have become ill with similar symptoms to those experienced by Olivia. The Northern Star was doing its job of informing the public that all is not well in regard to Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix.

Media Watch‘s segment was called Northern Star HPV headline wrong.   Presenter Paul Barry called the headline ‘scary and damaging’. The story of HPV vaccines is very scary and there’s plenty of damage but I don’t think that is what Barry meant. For that we have to fast forward to the statements made by Melbourne University virologist Dr David Hawkes who was asked his opinion of The Northern Star headline. It puts people at risk. Because what it does it puts them off vaccinations. It’s actually hurting our healthcare system,” said Hawkes.

We should not be surprised by the virologist’s position – that’s his job and the way he sees the world but I am surprised and alarmed at  the heavy handedness of Media Watch who 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? I wasn’t alone in my fury at what Media Watch had done. A comment from Jenna Finch from the Media Watch website summed it up:

Do some further research on HPV adverse events and you will see it’s not fabricated. Look at Colombia High Court’s recent decision and what’s going on in Denmark. A little broader view in this story would have restored my faith in your program but I’m back to realising you are simply a government puppet.

Dr Judy Wilyman author A critical analysis of the Australian Government’s rationale for its vaccination policy.’ puts out a rallying cry to us all that we cannot ignore:

It is time for all Australians to get involved in the vaccination debate as mandatory vaccination is now being forced on many adults in employment situations. The government has also implemented the Adult Immunisation Register to monitor and enforce adult compliance with the recommended schedule of 16 plus vaccines.   

Don’t expect Media Watch to cover this though.

Before HPV there was common sense

The idea that a virus could cause cervical cancer is a relatively new one. In 1977  German virologist Harald zur Hausen claimed that the human papilloma virus – HPV known for causing warts could also cause cervical cancer. From then on all common sense flew out the window.

Why and how the focus changed from an understanding of cervical cancer as a disease associated with social and environmental conditions  to a cancer caused by a virus is addressed in Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed along with the disastrous ramifications for the health of young girls and boys who, in the wake of a scare campaign, are now injected with HPV vaccines.

In my book I explain why I became interested in this story of cervical cancer which stemmed from my diagnosis of cervical dysplasia in the 1980s. This was around the time that the story about a virus was causing the cancer was making the news. With the rates of cancer skyrocketing in the second half of the 20th century the world was concerned about the causes of cancer and in this case cancer of the cervix.  People wanted answers, they wanted to know the cause. Most of all they wanted a cure.

I often wonder about the ability of the scientific community to have most of the world believing that viruses, and not lifestyle and environmental changes, are the cause of these horrid cancers. But that is what has happened in the case of cervical cancer.

Numerous theories as to the cause(s) of cervical cancer have come and gone over the decades. There were the early nineteenth century physicians who claimed that ‘sexual excesses and immorality’ were involved, for it was thought that the disease was found in larger numbers among poorer, city women than amongst married and financially more secure women living in rural areas (Löwy, 2011, p. 140). Domenico Rigoni-Stern, an Italian surgeon, followed this dubious line of reasoning and claimed that cervical cancer rarely occurred in nuns (p. 140). This theory was later discounted when a study revealed that in fact religious sisters were subject to the disease too, and that, contrary to prevailing opinion, women in long-term relationships also developed cervical cancer. Further research by British physician J.C.W. Lever found that “single women bear a proportion of 5.83 per cent, married women 86.6 per cent, and widows 7.5 per cent,” of cases of cancer of the womb. With the notion that sexual excesses and/or immorality were the cause of the disease discredited, researchers began to suspect that a “chronic irritation” or an underlying inflammatory process could be the missing link. In the case of cancer of the uterus it was proposed that the trauma of childbirth itself could be a risk factor. Such speculation might explain why there was more cervical cancer among women of low socioeconomic status than among women of means. Poorer women tended to have more children, lived harsher lives and possibly received less medical care, as well as missing out on much-needed rest and recovery time after the birth of their children (Löwy, 2011, p. 143).

I believe these early researchers were on the right track when they proposed that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were in some way implicated in the disease process. British psychologist, author and researcher Susan Quilliam documented these lifestyle factors that might increase the chance of becoming ill with cervical cancer in her 1989 book Positive Smear. Quilliam stressed the importance of a balanced diet and claimed that deficiencies in vitamin C, beta carotene and folic acid were common in women with cervical precancerous cells. Quilliam strongly emphasised the importance of a healthy environment, good hygiene and excellent nutrition as prerequisites for good health and resistance to disease (1989, pp. 96–98). When discussing the causes of cervical cancer, she doesn’t shy away from a conversation about the contraceptive pill and how it has a negative effect on natural immunity as well as a propensity to lessen the body’s ability to use folic acid (p. 99). Regrettably, since Quilliam’s 1989 book, the pendulum has swung back to regarding cervical cancer as a disease associated with sexual activity. HPV is now seen as the main culprit and any discussion that there may be other factors that lead to this disease is silenced in the mainstream media. To the extent that Harald zur Hausen’s claim that HPV was the cause of the disease was welcomed by the scientific community even though other institutions such as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) were wary and stated: “Although evidence for an association between cervical cancer and sexual activity has been available for over a century, the causal role of a sexually transmitted infectious agent has not yet been proven” (IARC, 1989).

Despite this lack of consensus, in 1989, Professor Ian Frazer and Dr Jian Zhou from the University of Queensland in Australia received funding from CSL Ltd, formerly known as the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories to begin work on a vaccine which “would prevent carcinogenic changes believed to result from HPV infections”.  And what has followed is a disaster for over 73000 girls and boys around the world who have suffered shocking adverse events following their vaccination with HPV vaccines for a disease they are extremely unlikely to ever get.

In the interests of this generation of teenagers about to be vaccinated with these fast-tracked HPV vaccines we need to bring back some commonsense. For that I commend the work of Peter Duesberg and the findings presented in a paper published in Molecular Cytogenetics (2013) of which Peter Duesberg is one of six authors which found that the changes seen in cervical cells are caused by exposure to carcinogens such as cigarette smoke. According to the authors, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.

Indeed  recent research from Egypt puts the HPV causation into further jeopardy. Thabet et al. found that HPV wasn’t the main cause of pre-invasive and invasive cervical cancer among patients in the Delta Region, Egypt. They report the existence of HPV in 39.5% of premalignant lesions and 33.3% in malignant cervical lesions.

Let’s face it. HPV is a very common wart virus. Over 80 percent of us are affected at some stage in our lives. Most of this infection is cleared by the body within two years. Only around 1 percent of the world’s women develop cervical cancer.

This is a cancer much like others in that it is caused by social conditions and environmental factors and other influences such as ageing.

A comprehensive evaluation of the overall impact of aluminum on human health is overdue

A decade since the launch of the vaccine a book questions the claim it prevents cancer,’ wrote Carolyn Moynihan as she began her review of my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed published in August in MercatorNet. Her review was fair with her concluding paragraph:
Lobato concludes her book with an appeal to the media to do their job and give the public the fuller story about the HPV vaccine. You may not agree with her version of the story at all points, but she has shown Big Media some of the things they could be airing in the interests of informed debate.
A month later MercatorNet has published another piece presenting ‘expert’ evidence given by Professor Silvia Carlos an expert on infectious diseases in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the University of Navarre, Spain. One of the issues that they discuss with Professor Silvia Carlos concerns the safety of aluminium in the HPV vaccine. It is vital that we understand this issue as Gardasil contains 225 micrograms of amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate per dose. The purpose and mechanism of the aluminium as an adjuvent is explained by Exley, C., Siesjö, P. & Eriksson as owing to the homogeneity and generally weak immunogenicity of recombinant antigens, the inclusion of adjuvants is often necessary for the induction of robust immune responses and effective immunisation. In other words the human papilloma virus-like particles made by DNA recombination technology are not strong enough to bring about an immune response so aluminium which enhances the body’s immune response is added.
Silvia Carlos claims that the amount of aluminium in the vaccines is low and quotes the CDC, Centres for Disease Control and Prevention which says that aluminium has been safely used in vaccines for over 70 years.
However Canadian researchers Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw state in their paper Aluminium Adjuvants: Are they safe?  
Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. They state that:

Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin. Experimental research clearly shows that aluminium adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In addition: the use of adjuvants in human vaccinations has been linked to adverse effects often classified under Autoimmune (or autoinflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants . Combined with the relatively low cost of hydrated colloidal aluminium salts and their ease of inclusion as effective adjuvants within clinically approved vaccine formulations, the continued use of ABA (aluminium based adjuvants) in human vaccinations is likely to continue. Aluminum adjuvants are also used in vaccines such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-containing vaccines, and Haemophilus influenzae type b and pneumococcal vaccines.

Canadian researchers Tomljenovic and Shaw state that unlike dietary aluminium which usually is rapidly cleared from the body, aluminium that is used in vaccines such as Gardasil ‘is designed to provide a long-lasting cellular exposure’. They explain that while the aluminium that is contained in vaccine facilitates an immune response against antigens it can make its way into the central nervous system. ‘It is not really a matter of much debate that aluminium in various forms can be neurotoxic.’

The authors of a study called Vaccines, adjuvants and autoimmunity have found that Vaccines and autoimmunity are linked fields. They report that: Vaccines are able to elicit the immune system towards an autoimmune reaction. It is vital that we understand the part that vaccines such as Gardasil play in the development of  autoimmune diseases for they are increasing all over the globe and currently affect one in five Americans. In the study the immunologists have reviewed cases of ‘vaccine-induced immunity’ explaining the process as Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants. Adjuvants are added to vaccines in order to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies but in some people they cause immune reactions and symptoms that manifest as autoimmune disease. The latest HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 contains 500 micrograms of (AAHS) which is given as two or three shots.

The safety of our teenagers is at stake. They are being injected all over the world with Gardasil which has 225 micrograms per dose and in Australia next year will be given Gardasil 9 containing 500 micrograms per dose. Tomljenovic and Shaw call for a comprehensive evaluation of the overall impact of aluminum on human health which they stress is overdue. In the meantime the HPV vaccination programs should be ceased. There is zero scientific evidence that HPV vaccines have been proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer in any country (Dr Sin Hang Lee).

 

 

 

Why are we replacing the Pap smear with a test for HPV?

Why are we replacing the successful Pap smear program with an HPV test when we don’t know if HPV is the cause of cervical cancer?

Joan Shenton, is a British broadcaster and producer of Sacrificial Virgins:  Not for the greater good.  In Part One of the series, Shenton interviews molecular biologist Professor Peter Duesberg who is also the author of What if HPV does NOT cause cervical cancer?  and asks him whether there is a causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and and cervical cancer. “Absolutely not”, he replied, adding that if HPV is there at all then it is what is known as a passenger virus. “It does nothing…these are fossils of HPV which are still in some cells. They are from an infection decades prior to the cancer.” This is damning and we must ask what on earth we are doing vaccinating girls and boys all over the world with a vaccine protective against a harmless wart virus. But the vaccine is not harmless. On the contrary there are more adverse events following its administration than for all other vaccines.

From the 1960s to 1991, cervical cancer screening was available to women in Australia on an opportunistic basis in that the test was done on the request of the doctor or the woman herself. Then, in 1991, an organised program was set up which in 1995 became the National Cervical Screening Program. Since the Australian National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, the number of deaths from the disease have halved (Cancer Council Australia, 2017).

In December 2017 the successful two-yearly pap tests for women aged between 18 and 69 will be replaced by a five-yearly HPV test for 25 to 74-year-olds. An  ABC online article explains that HPV screening looks for DNA from the human papillomavirus virus strains that cause the vast majority of cervical cancers. (Or so they say). The mainstream media was all over this new test yesterday. Why? Because according to Karen Canfell, director of the Cancer Research Division at the Cancer Council NSW, HPV screening for cervical cancer had been extensively studied and modelled, and shown to be better than Pap smears and liquid-based cytology. And the end of the year when this new program commences is fast approaching. It is time for promotion. And the media follows suite. They do not ask how these changes might adversely affect women or some women. They do not ask if there might be a problem with over treatment.

I suggest that these changes to the national cervical screening program are highly problematic. Firstly because 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. The real causes of cervical cancer are most likely socioeconomic and environmental factors such as poverty, nutritional deficiences, smoking, multiparity, prolonged contraceptive use and ageing. This test is for HPV not for cervical cancer. HPV is a very common virus so much so that most of us have had this at some stage in our lives. HPV is likely to be found in cervical cells but as Professor Duesberg has explained if the virus is detected it is a fossil, left over from earlier infection.

Pap smear testing has often been seen as excessive and resulting in cases of over-screening and treatment but this new test amounts to much more of the same. If the 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 (Sifferlin, 2014). 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. This includes 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 medical care if they are to recover their former health. This policy is disastrous as is the HPV vaccination program which vaccinates teenagers all over the world with a vaccine that at best is preventative against a few strains of the human papilloma virus but does not protect them against cancer. How could it – it is a vaccine against a wart virus, that is all.

With these changes to the screening program there is particular concern for women who test negative for HPV but who have cervical cancer. HPV-negative tumours are present in many types of cervical cancers. Zhao MD and his colleagues report that large-scale studies reveal the existence of HPV-negative cervical cancers present in almost all types of cervical cancers (Zhao MD et al., 2014). According to Bosch et al. (2002), there has been little investigation of older women with cervical cancer, but it is likely that the HPV-negative cancers can be found in this group of women.These HPV-negative women will not have their disease found as early as they would have with a routine Pap smear.  There has been little investigation of older women with cervical cancer but it is likely that the HPV negative cancers can be found in this group of women.

With the arrival of videos such as Sacrificial Virgins:  Not for the greater good  and books such as Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed the HPV causes cervical cancer is being exposed as the shocking sham it is. The vaccination program needs to stop until there is proof that HPV causes cancer and so far there is none. And the mainstream media need to up their game. After all this is what they are being paid for.

 

 

We are losing what it is to be human

When my daughter Tamara was born I was fortunate to have a sensible down to earth mother who encouraged me to breast feed. This was 1971 when it was becoming fashionable for young women to ditch the breast and take up formula feeding. I happily followed mum’s advice and never regretted it for a moment. Breast feeding is natural and of course really convenient and more importantly a perfect feed for baby. Not just nutritionally but replete with immunity. This brings me to the subject of herd immunity – natural herd immunity. We hear our so-called health experts speak of the need for herd immunity in the context of vaccines. But herd immunity is not obtainable from vaccines. Vaccine-acquired protection from childhood infections does not last whereas the natural infection with its fever and rashes extends immunity and is reinforced by others when they come down with the illness.

Herd immunity is gained in the following way. As a child before the age of vaccines it was common to have infections such as measles mumps, rubella, and chicken pox. A few days off kindergarten or school and then you were well again. We never heard of children having complications from the natural infection. When babies are breast fed this natural immunity is passed on and is protective of  baby in the early months of life. Then when our children have measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox the adult immunity to these illnesses is reinforced – this I think of as herd immunity. Take the case of chicken pox, a mild infection. Before the current age of vaccines chicken pox immunity among adults was regularly reinforced by the young around them who had the natural disease. In this way elderly people, often susceptible to shingles were protected from the painful and debilitating disease. This naturally acquired immunity is disappearing now that children are vaccinated for these mild childhood infections and everything else – even against influenza. Nature has it right. Breast is best, and a dose of a mild infectious disease makes us stronger.

Fear is a great motivator and our media at the behest of health departments and the pharmaceutical industry have exploited the fear of disease to such an extent that most of society think that vaccines will prevent childhood disease and the rare death. Before the age of vaccines there were around 10 cases of death from measles in Australia and these sadly occurred in areas of poverty and disadvantage. Infectious disease deaths fell before widespread vaccination. Factors that resulted in reduced deaths were improved nutrition, sanitation and hygiene.

Similarly when we turn to the issue of cervical cancer and prior to the 2006 release of Gardasil, the media message was intense and scarcely a day passed without a horrifying cervical cancer story accompanied by the promotion of an auspicious, imminent vaccine. This message reached an uninformed public, most of whom had never heard of this virus but were now  anxiously waiting for a vaccine to become available as quickly as possible. Poverty and environmental factors such as smoking, poor diets and even natural ageing were displaced as causation in favour of the human papilloma virus or wart virus. The outcome of this propaganda has led to over 70,000 adverse events and 314 deaths in young girls and boys after HPV vaccination.

We need to turn this around. There are many awful things happening in the world today but this one could be stopped tomorrow if there was a will. 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.”

 

 

 

 


While hundreds of Irish girls are forced to seek medical treatment authorities continue to claim the HPV vaccine program outweighs any risk


This week  The Irish Times  reported that almost 650 Irish girls needed medical intervention after their HPV vaccination. No surprises there and while it is good to see the Irish media admit that so many Irish girls are unwell the author really needs to do much more research. Perhaps he has, but is not permitted to report it. Such is the media today.

In Almost 650 girls needed medical intervention after HPV vaccine , Paul Cullen writes that the spokesperson for the Health Products Regulatory Authority has stated that although there were 1,099 reports of adverse reactions after the use of the vaccine the vaccine itself was not necessarily the cause and the benefits of the HPV program outweighed any risk.

Yes it is good to see articles alerting parents that there are serious adverse events after administration of HPV vaccines such as Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix. However we need to take issue with many details of this report along with the actions of the Health Products Regulatory Authority.

The author states that despite the high level of adverse events the authority’s decision that the benefits of the program outweighed any risk was based on reviews obtained by the European Medicines Agency.

But should such reviews by the European Medicines Agency be trusted? Let us look at the facts.

In 2015 due pressure for an inquiry from HPV vaccine injured women and activists in Britain, Denmark and Sweden, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) conducted a review into two of the adverse conditions of HPV vaccination, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). However after hearing the details of damaged girls from countries including Spain, Italy, France, Colombia and Mexico, the Agency (EMA) could still see no reason to change the way the vaccines were administered, or the need to amend the current product information. Indeed, the EMA claimed that the benefits of HPV vaccines continued to outweigh their risks.

Criticism of the EMA’s review came from  many quarters including the Nordic Cochrane Centre, a reputable independent research and information organisation. It accused the EMA of being more concerned with its own reputation and acting to protect the vaccines from criticism at all costs. According to Peter C. Gøtzsche, the Director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, the report undertaken by the EMA failed to take seriously important data that implicated the HPV vaccine in the development of severe side effects. Amongst them were findings by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre that the HPV vaccines resulted in a considerably higher risk of severe adverse effects than any other vaccine. They questioned whether the EMA has respected the rights of the community to know that there are concerns related to the safety of the HPV vaccines.

While the Australian media refuses to debate the issue of Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix the Irish Media is at least reporting the injury but the information needs to be correct. The author claims that: HPV – or human papilloma virus – vaccine, marketed as Gardasil, protects against cervical and other forms of cancer. But according to a leading pathologist Dr Sin Hang Lee, there is zero scientific evidence that HPV vaccines have been proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer in any country. The article informs that there are around 90 deaths from cervical cancer deaths a year in Ireland. It is obvious that this is not a disease of epidemic proportions with the majority of deaths occurring in women over 65 years of age. And yet all over the world girls and boys of 12-13 years of age are getting these vaccinations for a disease they are extremely unlikely to ever get. There is something very wrong with the picture painted by our health regulators and governments and it has to change. These are our future adults that governments at the behest of the pharmaceutical companies are exploiting for very short-term monetary gain. It is outrageous.

The article continues with advice given by the health authority;

The HSE, which noted that syncope can occur after any vaccination, especially in adolescence, advises girls to prevent it by sitting down for 15 minutes after vaccinations.

Now Syncope is serious. It is a temporary loss of consciousness usually related to insufficient blood flow to the brain and we know that large numbers of vaccinated girls have gone on to develop what is known as POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, a disturbance of the autonomic nervous system manifesting in symptoms such as fatigue, sweating, tremor, anxiety, palpitation, exercise intolerance, light-headedness, and near collapse on upright posture. It is simply not good enough to just tell girls to sit down for a period of time after vaccinations.

I am not surprised by stories of Irish teachers who are witnessing what is happening on vaccination days. Indeed many of them do not want to work on vaccination days.

One young female teacher said she would rather go off sick when the girls are being given the HPV vaccine than witness what she has seen in her school over the last 3 years. She said she saw a number of girls lying on the floor like zombies. She was horrified that another senior member of staff said to her, ” you seen nothing, forget about it. ”

Another female teacher said that there is no way that her daughter who will be starting post primary school in few years time will be getting what she described as that horrible vaccine. She said that this must not and could not be right and wondered what was going to be long-term outcome with this girls health.

The HPV vaccination must be put on hold. There is no proof that HPV is the cause of cervical cancer – nor is there any evidence that this vaccine has prevented cervical cancer anywhere in the world. According to Erickson and Duesberg the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.

I end this blog with the words of Bernard Dalbergue (Health Impact News, 2014)

I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What causes cervical cancer?

 

There are many unanswered questions regarding the current dogma that HPV causes cervical cancer. For example:

Why is it that only one in 10,000 HPV infected women go on to develop cervical cancer and why does this cancer only develop decades after HPV infection?

The human papilloma virus was not always considered the cause of cervical cancer. Christine Kent author of Saving the Whole Woman has pointed out that there is a lack of glycogen in the squamous mucosa of the cervix and vagina in women with cervical cancer. Glycogen is a stored form of glucose which is necessary for the health of these reproductive tissues. Other researchers have looked into dietary reasons that may contribute to cervical cancer such as Susan Quilliam who in her book Positive Smear noted nutritional deficiencies such as a lack of vitamin C, beta carotene and folic acid. Carolyn DeMarco also mentions the role of folic acid describing it as an important cofactor needed by the enzymes that make DNA and one that is often deficient in pill users, that can protect against precancerous changes in the cervix. Demarco adds that low levels of beta-carotene have been associated with cervical dysplasia along with inadequate vitamin B6 and selenium. Carolyn Demarco and Susan Quilliam both discuss the role that prolonged use of the contraceptive pill has on the incidence of cervical cancer. A 1988 update of a study that had been going on in Britain for the last 20 years links the pill with cervical cancer. The incidence of cervical cancer in women who had taken the pill for more than ten years was four times greater than for women who had not. The overall incidence of cancer of the cervix was increased in women who had used the pill.

Then there is the role that smoking plays in the development of the disease with it being a major risk factor and said to account for a two-to four-fold increased incidence of cervical cancer. Reading from the QuitNow website :

Smoking is a cause of cancer of the cervix. Tobacco specific carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) have been found in the cervical mucus of smokers. Smokers and former smokers risk of developing cancer of the cervix is about double that of never smokers.The level of risk remains after taking into account other risk factors for cervical cancer including infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV), a likely factor in most cases. Your risk of developing cervical cancer increases the longer you smoke and the more cigarettes you smoke. Women who smoke are around twice as likely to develop cervical cancer than non- smokers and research has shown that toxins from first-hand and second-hand smoking can be found in cervical tissue. Smoking has been implicated in the causation of cervical cancer since the 1970s.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers the following tips for preventing cervical cancer: Don’t smoke, have regular Pap smears, eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables, use a condom and be monogamous. Seems very sensible to me.  And why don’t we hear this sensible advice rather than the baseless message that HPV vaccines are needed to save your daughter from the ravages of cervical cancer. And look where this advice has got the young teens of the world with over 73000 adverse events post vaccination and hundreds of deaths. This is a disease for which HPV vaccination is not warranted. First attend to these lifestyle causes would be a good way to go.

Censorship Down Under

The chances of having a public debate about Gardasil, the HPV vaccine are getting slimmer by the day.

Polly Tommey, the co-producer of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe an investigation into the Center of Disease Control’s (CDC) destruction of a study linking autism to the MMR vaccine was banned from Australia because officials felt she was a danger to “the health, safety or good order of the Australian community“. Tommey along with Dr Suzanne Humphries were part of a Vaxxed Down Under Tour organised by the Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network Inc (AVN) an organisation which takes a pro-choice position with regard to vaccination and other health decisions.

Speaking in New Zealand last week, Tommey told the press she would be appealing the Australian ban. She said: “I’m just a mother. They say the film, Vaxxed, is dangerous and anti-vaccine. They say I’m a danger but I’m travelling with a doctor and a scientist. The only thing Australia has done is make more people want to watch the film. The main thing is, I don’t understand why we aren’t just having a discussion about it.”

Polly’s last statement is so important. In Australia debate on any vaccine issue is not permitted. And this week was no exception. On August 10 the media reported that cervical cancer could be almost completely eliminated, research has found, thanks to a new vaccine. The news report referenced a study published in the International Journal of Cancer which found that the new HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 was protective against 93 % of cancers. The reporting continued throughout the evening with numerous health professionals and researchers preaching the merits of the latest HPV vaccine and urging young teenagers and even older women to get vaccinated so that they would not be a victim to cervical cancer.

But it is a very strange world we are in today. Infectious disease is definitely not allowed. Cervical  cancer is to be avoided at all costs and the costs are high as demonstrated by the huge numbers of young people who are ill after Gardasil vaccination and many who have also died. This new vaccine Gardasil 9, said to be preventative against 9 sub types of human papilloma virus is very problematic. Not that the members of the public would know from the one-sided reporting that ensued from the announcement last week. Gardasil 9 contains more than twice the amount of aluminium, a neurotoxin, used as an adjuvant to stimulate the production of antibodies, than the current vaccine. Gardasil 9 also contains more antigens (the HPV LI proteins) with the total number increasing from 120 mcgs to 270 mcgs. How will additional antigens and more aluminium affect the health of these young people who are now told they need this new vaccine? But listeners to talk back radio and readers of the press were not informed as to the risks rather they were assured by the authoritative voice of the lead author and Medical Director of the National HPV Vaccination Program Register, Associate Professor Julia Brotherton who said: “We can now prevent cancer. You can stop your kids getting infected with this cancer-causing virus. It’s staggering.”

Parents of teenage children need facts not empty promises. We do not know if Gardasil 9 can prevent cervical cancer. And the important point is that Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccines have never been tested against cervical cancer outcomes. It can take decades from HPV infection to the development of cancer so researchers used a surrogate endpoint to support the conclusion that HPV vaccines might be preventative. The suitable surrogate end-point chosen was cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2/3 lesions, and adenocarcinoma in situ. This end-point was decided even though these precursor lesions are common in young women under 25 years and rarely progress to cancer. In sum, very few of these CIN 2 and 3 lesions in young women develop into cancer so it is difficult to support their use as end-points or markers. At the end of the month the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee PBAC will decide whether Gardasil 9 is listed on the Public Benefit Scheme, the PBS. If so it will replace Gardasil as the HPV vaccine to be given freely through the school vaccination program to teenage boys and girls.

But there will be no public debate on this move by the PBAC especially after the news today that the Australian Government has launched a $5.5 million immunisation education campaign to counter the views of the anti-vaccination lobby.  What is this all about? Australia has a 93% vaccination rate. Would the $30 billion vaccination industry have anything to do with it?  How do they sleep at night!

 

 

Gardasil Weekly Update

Class action against Merck Sharp & Dohme

On a positive note if there is one in this Gardasil story is the news that a class action against the manufacturers of Gardasil began on August 4, 2017 on behalf of 700 Columbian women who in March 2014 were admitted to the hospital suffering new medical conditions after the administration of Gardasil. The Reconstruando Esperanza Association consists of the alleged victims of Gardasil, which is suing  Merck Sharp & Dohme for “the damages caused to the life and health” of hundreds of women and girls.

Some background to this case:

In August 2014, The South China Post  reported: Hundreds of girls in Colombian town sick after taking Gardasil vaccine. While the parents of the girls suspected adverse reactions to the HPV vaccine, there were others such as the National Ministry of Health who called this a case of mass hysteria and even suggested the idea that their illnesses might be as a result of illicit drug use or overuse of the ouija board.

Jeffrey Jaxen reports on the testimonies given by the girls:

Maria Paula Salamanca, was given an injection of Gardasil on May 27, 2013.

A year prior to that, in 2012, Salamanca was a world-class skater winning a silver metal for Colombia in the annual 100K New York Marathon. After the HPV shot, she began to pass out and have migraines that she, her coaches and her family all attributed to fatigue.

Juliana Vega, now 19 years old, was given the HPV shot at school in 2014 yet was never warned about the risks. Fifteen days later she began fainting, and started losing her hair and vision. Vega testified stating:

I had to suspend my plans for college. I was extremely athletic before, now I can’t run — my legs won’t let me. I have no wheelchair and if I awake with no mobility in my legs, I have to stay in bed.

Some practical support for the girls has come from a powerful figure in Columbian politics. Inspector General Alejandro Ordoñez insisted that the girls were given top treatment and asked that the National Institute of Health issue scientific studies of HPV suggesting vaccine safety. Meanwhile the Health department held an inquiry into the outbreak of new medical conditions arising after the second dose of Gardasil and concluded that the girls symptoms were not due to Gardasil rather they were due to episodes of psychogenic cause, due to the minor’s fear of being sick, augmented by the media attention on the events and lack of an identified cause.

It is no wonder the Columbian girls and their families have taken to the courts. Good luck to the 700 young women as they seek justice through the courts for the damages caused to the life and health.

Patrice’s message to other mothers is clearly: ‘Don’t do it.’

This harrowing story told by Patrice about the death of her daughter Gabby was recorded by the Vaxxed team while they toured Australia this week. This is the first death in Australia in relation to Gardasil that I have heard of, but of course it is unlikely to be the only Australian death that has occurred in a girl or boy following HPV vaccination. The Database of Adverse Events Notifications (DAEN) found on the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) website, lists there have been around 4000 adverse events recorded but they list no deaths. But few people are aware of where or how to record their adverse events so the real extent of events following vaccination are likely to be much worse and may include deaths. The recording system VAERS covering USA and some European countries reports that there have been 324 deaths following Gardasil vaccination. Patrice’s daughter Gabby who died several years ago wanted to have the vaccine. Gabby was a normal healthy young girl and she and her friends were very aware of the media hype that preceded the rollout of Gardasil including TV ads urging girls to be ‘one less’ to die from cervical cancer. Gabby’s mother Patrice had a gut instinct that the vaccine wasn’t needed and told her daughter about her concerns regarding its safety but to no avail. After her first Gardasil vaccine Gabby complained of a headache that didn’t go away followed by pain in the right side of her abdomen three weeks after the shot. This was found on ultrasound to be coming from a tumour on her right ovary. Gabby was diagnosed with small cell ovarian cancer. She was given chemotherapy and died an ‘excruciatingly painful death’. Patrice’s message to other mothers is clearly: ‘Don’t do it.’

Multiple sclerosis or vaccine injured?

The average age for a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis is 30, but in recent years the number of younger women diagnosed with the disease in Australia has risen dramatically. It used to affect men and women equally but now women are three times more likely to be affected. I recently heard of a young woman who was relieved when she was diagnosed with MS because no-one had been able to tell her why she was unwell. Her symptoms began when she was 13 and consisted of headaches, sensory deficit affecting her leg, and fatigue resulting in her missing a lot of school.

I wondered as I heard her story if rather than MS she was suffering a vaccine injury.  Neurological dysfunction is one of the very common adverse events of the Gardasil vaccine. Her symptoms started at 13, the age Gardasil is given to young teens as part of the school vaccination program. It makes me wonder just how many girls and boys are diagnosed with MS and other neurological conditions and autoimmune diseases rather than with a vaccine injury. Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old Melbourne woman suffered autoimmune and neurological problems following her Gardasil vaccination and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis initially but was later found to be suffering a neurological response to the vaccine. Similarly 26-year-old Kristin Clulow from NSW was given the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis after her health began to unravel after her second shot of Gardasil with the prescribed treatment methylprednisolone, commonly given to sufferers of this debilitating neurological disease. Kristin was eventually given the diagnosis of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, an immune-mediated inflammatory demyelinating condition that predominately affects the white matter of the brain and spinal cord.

Laura, one of the Irish ‘Gardasil Girls’ was told she was suffering chronic fatigue syndrome after her condition worsened to such an extent she could no longer go to school. But whatever the health system chose to call the debilitating conditions, she and the other affected girls and their families are united in their conviction that they became ill after their HPV vaccinations. Many of these girls and now boys who are unwell after their HPV vaccinations are forced to seek medical help, they need answers. But instead they are given a medical diagnosis that seems to fit while the cause remains hidden.

No Gardasil for UK boys

UK boys and their parents are able to breathe a sigh of relief after the decision has finally been made on whether to vaccinate boys against the human papilloma virus (HPV).  The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has been considering whether to include boys along with girls in the current vaccination program since 2014. There have been ongoing campaigns aimed at a ‘gender-neutral‘ approach to the vaccination, that would make sure that 400,000 school-age boys are able to access HPV vaccines. The committee made its recent decision based on their findings that it wouldn’t be cost-effective to vaccinate boys along with girls. Unlike the situation in the UK, in Australia there was no such deliberation and in 2013 we became the first country to extend our HPV vaccination program to boys. We cannot afford the luxury of relaxed breathing – in fact none of us can while the Gardasil vaccination program continues.

As I have written in Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed:

The roll-out of Gardasil was preceded by years of promotion by the manufacturer Merck (USA) and CSL Ltd, the New Zealand and Australian distributor culminating in a relentless propaganda campaign waged by both Australian and international mass media. Behind the Australian Gardasil campaign was the PR giant Edelman that worked with the Australian and New Zealand distributor CSL Biotherapies in promoting the vaccine to health professionals and the public. There were 974 pieces of media devoted to the campaign with over 40 hours of coverage available to the Australian audience of almost 24 million. The campaign engaged 21 women between the ages of 14–26 who were to be given the vaccination nationally. Gardasil was launched to the public on 28 August 2006 and Ian Frazer himself vaccinated the first woman at the Sydney launch.

In The Re-selling of Gardasil, blogger Lynn McTaggart has written: And now this vaccine with one of the worse track records in vaccine history, is being resold to boys. And when it comes to vaccines, where the US leads, the UK meekly follows. But this time UK has said no –  for the time being at least. But it may be pressured to change this decision for as we know in the lead up to the introduction of HPV vaccines for young girls the media message was intense and scarcely a day passed without a cervical cancer story. This time the pressure is on to vaccinate boys against HPV for cancers linked to oral sex. But are young girls and boys and their parents making an informed consent to the vaccination? Are they informed that there are over 73000 reported serious adverse health effects occurring after HPV vaccination. These include death, seizures, paralysis, autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue, pulmonary embolism, cardiac arrhythmias, infertility, cervical cancer and in boys there are now reported cases of erectile dysfunction following HPV vaccination. This would no doubt be of concern to young pubescent boys.

This current wave of re-selling Gardasil is being aided by the mantra of gender equality. Boys need HPV vaccine, too, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the CDC every year in the United States around 11,000 men get cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infections. Scary reports of young men and throat cancer abound, but just as in the case of cervical cancer the human papilloma virus may well be present in many cancers but it may just be a passenger virus. According to the authors of ‘What if HPV does NOT cause cervical cancer?’ Norma Erickson and Peter Duesberg, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer. There other factors at play. For example smoking and other environmental toxins may be the real causative factors. But once again the search for truth is forsaken when there is profit to be made.

As Lynn McTaggart concludes: We failed to lock up our daughters away from this terrible vaccine. But there’s still time to lock up our sons. Not in the United States,  Australia and New Zealand where the boys are already being vaccinated.
