‘Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed’ The Australian experience

 I presented the following talk at the 4th Annual International HPV Vaccine Education Symposium held in Chicago May 22-26, 2019. 

Let’s face it without good health, life is very difficult. Over the years I’ve researched the sickness industry including the scandalous HIV/AIDS industry, the cholesterol myth and the statins scam; and felt the sorrow of the poor women left in pain and debilitated after their prolapses were treated with mesh implants.

I’ve taken part in countless actions against the imposition of GMO foods horrified that such corruption of our food supply could be happening. Some of these horror stories are now making the headlines and many of the victims are being compensated but then how do you get your health back to where it was before the assault.

In 2006 a new tragedy began when Gardasil was approved for young girls

That 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

  1. Hyperactivation of the immune system caused by the aluminum nanoparticle adjuvant in HPV vaccines (ASIA)
  2. Sepsis caused by sustained adjuvant-driven mass apoptosis

Components of adjuvant-driven sepsis may contain pathogens such as Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), Cytomeglovirus (CMV), human herpes virus 6 (HHV6); toxins, such as heavy metals, insecticides, herbicides; other chemical compounds, including medication(s).

Phillips has found that Gardasil is more dangerous when given to teenagers of Irish background and those from the Northern and Western European countries due to their genetic heritage. He explains that these people are normally healthy and do not get sick – even though their bodies have more pathogens, normally kept in balance.

But this balance is dangerously disturbed as we add more and more vaccines containing metals and a whole host of other dangerous chemicals to the vaccine schedules given to children and increasingly older adults.

Since the start of the industrial revolution our risk of aggressive cancers has skyrocketed. Add to this we now have vaccines such as Gardasil. A toxic brew.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is it any wonder we are seeing more than 91,000 reported serious adverse events according to Vigibase and hundreds of deaths after Gardasil along with an increased incidence of cervical cancer in many countries following the use of this vaccine that is marketed to reduce this cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pap tests

And 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 Australia

This 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 ABC

Our 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?

Cartoonists

Sometimes 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 Clulow

 Kristin is a 26-year-old Australian woman who received the first of the three shots of Gardasil in 2008.

 

 

Reproductive problems post Gardasil

Doing 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 smear

I 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 cancer

So 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 Australia

Around 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.

Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed

The Australian experience

Australia has its own special but scandalous place in the history of HPV vaccines now distributed to teenagers in over 130 countries. Australia might be regarded as the birthplace of Gardasil for it was Professor Ian Frazer and the late Jian Zhou who first produced an HPV virus-like particle at the University of Queensland. Australia was also one of the first countries to offer Gardasil to girls in 2007 even though cervical cancer is rare with 1.7 deaths per 100,000 Australian women. Continue reading

Autoimmunity following Gardasil

Have you noticed how many young girls who have become so unwell following Gardasil  report the worsening of their symptoms after the second shot.

This research by Pompilio Martinez, MD from the School of Medicine, National University of Colombia explains why.

Screen Shot 2018-07-21 at 2.41.34 PM

Pompilio Martinez describes the neurological symptoms of 62 girls who were vaccinated against the human papilloma virus (HPV). The quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil was given to 61 Colombian girls and and the bivalent Cervarix was administered to one Mexican girl.

Martinez’s survey reveals an overall pattern of peripheral nervous system damage as demonstrated by complaints of inflammatory and neuropathic pain syndromes in the head, back, chest, arms and legs. There were also sensory and motor syndromes with upper and lower limb numbness and tingling (paraesthesia), muscle weakness and difficulty walking (paresis) accompanied by tremors, muscle spasms and twitches (abnormal movements).

It was found that most of these debilitating symptoms developed after the second shot of the HPV vaccine which corresponds to the greater antibody titres that occurs after booster vaccines. Dr Martinez explains the common process of adding an aluminium adjuvant to the vaccine in order to strengthen the immune response and subsequent antibody production.

However as a result a serious problem can occur if antibodies attack other tissues in the body inducing a process called ‘molecular mimicry’.  These are called ‘cross-reacting’ antibodies or auto-antibodies and are capable of inducing disease in the body.

Screen Shot 2018-07-21 at 6.00.32 PM

Initial exposure to the vaccine or infection induces the production of immunoglobulin which increases over several weeks after vaccination. Then with a repeated dose of the vaccine body cells are reactivated causing very high antibody concentration. Importantly these cross- reacting antibodies are reactivated also and minor damage can be worsened.

Some of these examples of molecular mimicry manifest as nerve demyelination and are experienced as muscle weakness, numbness and neuropathic pain. Some very unfortunate girls and boys develop respiratory muscle problems and require intubation and ventilation.

One of the striking findings of the survey was that symptoms developed after the second dose of the HPV vaccine. After the first dose only 15-30% of girls had symptoms but 48-80% were symptomatic after second dose. Symptom onset and disease severity increase with doses because of increased antibody titres.

This is what we are seeing in the girls who have become unwell after 2 or 3 doses of Gardasil. Frequently their stories are of worsening disease after the second dose of Gardasil.

high res

In my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I wrote about Australian woman Kristin Clulow and her battle with ill health following Gardasil. In May 2008, the 26-year-old Australian woman received the first dose of Gardasil, one of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines on the market. Two weeks later, the fit young woman fell and broke her left foot and although perplexed at the ease at which she had incurred her fracture, she didn’t think the two events were connected. In August 2008, she dutifully turned up at her doctor’s office for her second shot of Gardasil. But shortly after this injection, Kristin’s health began to unravel. It started with a temporary loss of vision and mobility problems that made it impossible for her to run, jump, dance or wear her beloved heels. Then her handwriting failed her: “Handwriting just doesn’t suddenly go,” she cried. Worse was to come when Kristin’s speech became slurred: “They thought I’d had a stroke.” Kristin’s story is all too common with adverse effects following the HPV vaccines now well over 80,000 according to the World Health Organisation’s database.

Interpretation of the study

We can infer that auto-antibody concentration paralleled symptoms suffered by girls who became sick by Gardasil. That is, antibodies elicited by the first dose caused symptoms in a few girls; while greater antibody concentrations with a second dose would cause a greater number of them to fall sick. Although we have no lab evidence of antibodies changing in this fashion we don’t need it, since it’s a very well-established scientific fact that serum antibody titres change with vaccine doses

Clinical evidence

In the study it was found that when the girls were re-exposed to vaccine antigens the auto-antibodies rose and relapse occurred. When the auto-antibodies were removed then there was clinical improvement. Partial remission has been achieved with antibody removal therapies such as IVIg ( a solution of human plasma proteins and plasmapheresis (a process that filters the blood and removes harmful antibodies).

Valentina’s story

Screen Shot 2018-07-21 at 5.47.34 PM

After two doses of Gardasil, Valentina developed flaccid paralysis in at least five muscle groups in her body. The young Colombian woman could not breathe and was intubated and ventilated and given plasmapheresis ridding her blood of the autoantibodies that had caused her paralysis.

Screen Shot 2018-07-21 at 6.06.31 PM

This procedure is used for treating many autoimmune diseases which are increasing rapidly. It is not a treatment that is undertaken lightly with risks of  complications as well as costing thousands of dollars. This is why there has to be more independent research such as what has been elicited by Martinez in Colombia. It is vital that the public understand the risks of these vaccines that are being given to teenagers all over the world.

How can we let this happen? All over the world girls and boys are becoming very ill after being vaccinated against HPV said to causing cervical cancer. But there is no scientific proof that the vaccine has ever prevented a single case of the cancer. Cervical cancer is well detected by Pap smear programs. There is no need for these harmful vaccines.

HPV vaccines for UK boys – why the change of heart?

Screen Shot 2018-06-18 at 12.01.19 PMA year ago I wrote a blog welcoming the news that the UK health officials were not recommending HPV vaccines for schoolboys. This was a win for boys and their parents.

In the UK, The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation(JCVI) had been considering whether to include boys along with girls in the current vaccination program since 2014. There were ongoing campaigns aimed at a ‘gender-neutral‘ approach to the vaccination, that would make sure that 400,000 school-age boys were able to access HPV vaccines. The committee made its 2017 decision based on their findings that it wouldn’t be cost-effective to vaccinate boys along with girls.

So what has changed in a year? Why has the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt given the go-ahead for boys to be included in the HPV vaccination program?

Eileen Iorio explains:

The Throat Cancer Foundation filed a High Court case in the UK against the National Health Service (NHS) under the 2010 Equality Act, seeking to add boys to the national HPV vaccine program.

According to the Daily Mail there are 2,000 male cancers annually, with 650 deaths and these are mainly from mouth and throat forms of the disease.

It appears that the boys have been missing out on the vaccine or that is the line that the public is supposed to accept. The Daily Mail headline is provocative and aimed at concerned parents and teenage boys.

HPV jabs will be offered to thousands of teen boys on the NHS as well as girls to protect against deadly cancer virus

Screen Shot 2018-06-18 at 12.09.06 PM

Professer Ian Frazer and former PM John Howard

 

Who is behind the campaign to extend HPV vaccination to UK boys?

Behind the scenes is the Scottish charity, the Throat Cancer Foundation which has been running a campaign “Jabs For The Boys.” And guess who was on the charity’s clinical and scientific board. Well it’s our very own ‘national hero’ Professor Ian Frazer who was awarded the honour of ‘Australian of the Year’ in 2006. It was Ian Frazer who along with his partner Jian Zhou developed the first HPV vaccine Gardasil and who earns royalties on sales from the vaccine. Ian Frazer is no longer on the board.

Then there is the obvious conflict of interest in Professor Margaret Stanley a consultant for Gardasil’s manufacturer Merck remaining on the charity’s board.

Her presence on the advisory board of the Throat Cancer Foundation indicates high-level industry support and influence.

HPV vaccines have not been approved for the prevention of throat cancer. Merck’s prescribing information states that Gardasil 9 is approved for boys and men from age 9 to 26 years for prevention of anal cancer and genital warts. There is no approval for throat or head and neck cancers.

But that does not stop the over-extended reach of these vaccines. In Australia we are now seeing the development of serious adverse events occurring after Gardasil in boys as well as girls.

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 3.20.34 PM

Who is going to treat the UK boys who may become ill after Gardasil vaccines? Who is going to pay for the loss of education and life opportunities afforded to those who are injured?

As is the case here most doctors deny the connection tending to diagnose the injured with common chronic fatigue syndrome for the extreme lethargy and body pain, and treat the increasing number of vaccine-acquired neurological illness as multiple sclerosis or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.

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 well over 83,000 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 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.

The Daily Mail  article features stories of men and their painful experiences of throat cancer 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 and not causing any harm.

high res

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 causative factors at play. For example smoking, dietary deficiencies and environmental toxins that may be the real causative factors. But once again the search for truth is forsaken when there is profit to be made.

Everything to be gained by breastfeeding, nothing to lose

In Natural Immunity and VaccinationTetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D states that the measles vaccine has probably eradicated much of the wild measles infection. Then she asks: But is this a good thing?

Answering her own question with a firm ‘no’ she explains that in eradicating the wild measles infection we are also putting an end to something else, something precious and this is maternal immunity. Dr Tetyana adds that we are actually eliminating this amazing maternal immunity even faster than the measles virus.

Natural immunity

In past generations most of us had childhood infections such as measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox. We encountered these viruses during our childhood and had acquired natural and lifelong immunity before child-bearing age. This is vital for during pregnancy mothers can pass on this immunity via the placenta and through breastfeeding. Such immunity lasts 6 months after the birth of the infant continuing and extended by length of breastfeeding. Because of this amazing maternal immunity now being eliminated through the mass use of vaccines, it was very rare for an infant to develop measles infection.

In 1990s there was a measles outbreak in USA where it was observed that some young infants developed measles and some didn’t. The infants who didn’t get measles were the babies of mothers who were born before 1963 (date when measles vaccine was introduced in the U.S) and the infants who developed measles were born to younger mothers who were more likely to have been vaccinated. The reason that the babies didn’t develop measles during the outbreak would be due to maternal immunity which was not available to the babies born to younger and vaccinated mothers.

Sadly in the same way as we are eliminating maternal immunity to measles we are on the way to eradicating maternal protection from common childhood infections such as mumps, rubella and chicken pox. (The vaccines for these being introduced at later dates). This is tragic for when there are outbreaks of mumps, rubella and chicken pox, young infants who in earlier times would have been covered by their mother’s immunity, will most likely be infected for young girls all over the world are now vaccinated.

‘Mass vaccination’, says Dr Tetyana, is resulting in a leaky herd immunity and this is because many of the vaccinated are called ‘low responders’ to the vaccine. We have ruined this natural immunity which was reinforced among adults when their offspring developed the childhood infections. How silly are we?

Tetyana Obukhanych discusses the choices available to us in relation to infectious disease control.

Public health model

This model promotes vaccines as the way to control infectious diseases. A better way is the adoption of the personal health model.

Personal Health Model

In this way we choose to leave the virus alone and keep our babies well so if they are infected it will be a very mild case of disease. This involves breastfeeding the infant and  attention given to ensuring a nutritious diet. It also involves avoiding fever suppressing medicine such as paracetamol.

The immune system gradually matures during infancy. Critical early protection against many infectious diseases previously experienced by the mother is given by the passive IgG antibody transferred from the mother via the placenta and in milk.

The infant immune system is transitioning to deal with life. Breastfeeding provides this protection by way of a ‘surrogate immune system‘ that includes the secretion of proteins that exist in breast milk and have antibacterial functions such as secreted IgA and other protective substances such as oligosaccharides that bind with bad bacteria and eliminate them avoiding gut inflammation.

The gut flora is vital in keeping the infant well. Lactobacteria in the gut is promoted by breastfeeding – the presence of this bacteria regulates the junctions in the gut preventing leaky gut. Breastfeeding has been shown to be protective against diarrhoea and also common ear infections and meningitis.  It also has a role in the prevention of chronic diseases.

Everything to be gained by breastfeeding, nothing to lose

As the child grows, attention must be given to nutrition and the importance of vitamins such as A and D. When infection strikes, macrophages pick up the virus and replicate it.  They then secrete interferon which sends signals to cells to fight the infection. However the function of interferon depends on adequate levels of vitamin A. In countries such as Africa where diets are deficient in vitamin A, measles is deadly, so supplementation of children with vitamin A is given.

Vitamin D is also vital for good health in that it activates some of the cells of the immune system and causes the secretion of substances such as antimicrobial peptides which helps with fighting infections. It is especially effective in fighting influenza. This explains why flu is more virulent in the winter when our vitamin D levels are low. Dietary supplementation with foods high in vitamin D is essential for immunity. Cod liver oil has sustained populations for many generations. See: Weston A. Price Foundation for more information about Vitamin D rich foods.

We have wonderful bodies which are designed to heal. There is no need for vaccines. We can build our immune systems and make ourselves and our children strong.

Harare’s Herald lauds Zimbabwe’s HPV vaccination programme

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 5.19.01 PM

This week in Mutare, Zimbabwe, First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa launched the National Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme. The vaccine is to be given to over 800,000 girls between the ages of 10 to 14 in an attempt to alleviate the country’s growing cervical cancer rate. However in light of the fact that there is no proof that HPV vaccines have ever prevented a single case of the disease any decrease in the rate of the cancer from this provision alone will not take place.

The Herald refers to the benefit that this decision will bring to young girls and provides further details:

 Beneficiaries will be vaccinated against cervical cancer between now and May next year

From my vast research on the subject of Gardasil and other HPV vaccines the only beneficiaries are likely to be the vaccine industry. To date there have been over 85,000 recorded adverse events following the administration of Gardasil. This is far from the correct number of events for many of the injured and their doctors are uninformed of the existence of vaccine adverse event databases such as Vaers or VigiBase .

These life-altering events include sudden collapse with unconsciousness within 24 hours seizures; muscle pain and weakness; disabling fatigue; Guillain-Barr Syndrome (GBS); facial paralysis; brain inflammation; rheumatoid arthritis; lupus; blood clots; optic neuritis; multiple sclerosis; strokes; heart and other problems, including death.

Zimbabwe does not need this vaccine. There is an estimated 2, 270 women diagnosed with cervical cancer in Zimbabwe annually with a mortality rate of 64 percent so yes something needs to be done to address the level of cancer and the lack of appropriate treatment facilities. But there are other and much safer ways to fix the problem.

However when there are organisations such as the GAVI Alliance, a multibillion-dollar public–private partnership that funds and delivers vaccines to developing countries, and which in 2013 introduced HPV vaccines in eight African countries with it’s aim to vaccinate 30 million girls in 40 nations by 2020 then any other way of looking at the problem is ignored.

The GAVI Alliance, based on partnership between the public and private sectors, was launched in 1999 to combat falling immunisation levels by providing vaccines to 74 of the world’s poorest countries. Dubbed the “billion dollar fund” after a contribution of $750m (£517m; 839m) from Microsoft’s founder and chief executive, Bill Gates, it seeks to achieve this by incorporating new vaccines into national health systems while promoting the existing immunisation program

Criticism of GAVI is not hard to find with Princeton University academic Donald Light reporting in The Guardian that

“I think the taxpayers of affluent countries and their leaders should support saving poor children and reducing global poverty but this is a moment when they could critically review how that money is being spent.” …”The Gavi model depends on giving more and more money year after year to get vaccines to poor countries in ways that are not self-sustaining and at prices that are unaffordable.”

 

Before the advent of HPV vaccines it was found that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were strongly implicated in the development of cervical cancer. It is well documented that tobacco smoking, having multiple children and the long-term use of hormonal contraceptives are associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer. When a woman stops taking hormonal contraceptives, the risk gradually declines.

Other factors that contribute to the cancer rate are the late presentation of disease, poor screening, and inadequate diagnosis and treatment facilities.

Knowing the risk factors and addressing them will help reduce the burden and mortality of cervical cancer along with the provision of Pap smear screening facilities and access to treatment for cervical lesions and cervical cancer.

Although there is government and public support for cervical cancer screening throughout the world, many countries lack well-funded, organised programs such as exist in the UK, Australia and other developed nations. 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. Such organised programs are more effective than those of an opportunistic nature because they specify a defined target population and include policies on method and interval of screening. Europe has few such organised programs with many countries relying on opportunistic screening. Screening in the USA and Canada varies from opportunistic to organised screening, and among the Latin American countries, Chile and Colombia boast national organised programs that have been operating for at least 15 years. Of all the countries in Africa, only South Africa has an official national cervical screening policy. Developing nations such as India have no organised screening program, with testing only available to a small population of mainly urban women. Since the Australian National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, the number of deaths from the disease have halved.

The rollout makes Zimbabwe the eighth African country to introduce the HPV vaccine into its routine immunisation programme. The others are Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa and Uganda. This is tragic!

A must-see documentary: ‘Manufactured Crisis – HPV, Hype & Horror’

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 1.51.28 PM

Sixteen year-old girls are going into ovarian dysfunction. Let me put that clearly for you in simple terms. That means a sixteen-year-old girl is going into menopause which is criminal.

There is no other industry in this world that has that kind of protection. They make their products not subject to any legal liability and then they have the government on top of that mandating that all of us purchase their products and they are not accountable.

Manufactured Crisis – HPV, Hype and Horror was produced by the Alliance for Natural Health and features the stories of families from the United Kingdom, America, Spain and Denmark. The documentary needs to form the basis of informed consent and given to any parent considering Gardasil or Cervarix for their daughters and now sons.

Here is the synopsis:

The pharmaceutical industry used faulty research, paid doctors and manipulated the media to push an unsafe vaccine onto the market.

They used political pressure to force this vaccine onto the public, despite any demonstrable public threat.

The result has been the devastation of many young girls’ lives.

Through interviews with leading experts, victims, and our own analysis of the vaccines themselves, the Alliance for Natural Health uncovered a conspiracy of greed that is being perpetrated on families around the world.

HPV vaccines were hyped and marketed to be given as a preventative against cervical cancer.

But as Sin Hang Lee M.D states:

Cervical cancer is the most preventable cancer.

This he explains is because it takes 15-30 years from infection with HPV to develop. First all that is needed is to catch the precancerous lesions and treat these. This is why it is so important that Pap smear programs continue.

The police came to the house to tell me she was found dead. She was found dead in her bed at school and that they didn’t know what happened

— Emily Tarsell, mother of Chrisina who tragically died in bed in 2008.

After 8 long years Emily Tarsell has managed to get justice for her daughter. The US government has finally conceded that Gardasil caused the death of her daughter Christina. Christina died from an arrhythmia induced by an autoimmune response to the HPV vaccine Gardasil which she had received only days before her death. 

The rate of cervical cancer in western countries such as the US is 12 per 100,000.

By Merck’s own admission for every 100,000 people who use Gardasil or Gardasil 9 you expect a minimum of 2300 serious adverse events to combat 12 potential cases of cervical cancer.

Laurie Powell a former pharmaceutical marketing executive comments on the spin and deception of Big Pharma.

She recalls a commercial that she saw on TV that targeted pre sexual girls that she considered was the most ‘egregious form of marketing’ she had ever seen.

‘Mum you wouldn’t let me get cancer if you could prevent it would you?’

The mainstream media ignores the plight of the thousands of girls and boys left damaged after HPV vaccination. The families of the vaccine injured can’t walk away from their problems and must deal with this dismissal of their situation and are often told it’s just a coincidence.

‘It’s all in the mind, a mental health condition’

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 2.34.26 PM

— Freda Birrell, President of the UK Association of vaccination injured daughters.

HPV vaccination is mandated for school children in three states of the US. It is required in the district of Colombia, Virginia State and Rhode Island.

They have to choose between putting their health at risk and attending school in order to be vaccinated for something that is believed can only be to be transmitted through sexual contact.

When you look more closely you see that the largest pharmaceutical companies including the largest vaccine makers have spent over 5.2 billion advertising during the last 12 months. They are keeping many of these news outlets in business with advertising dollars. It is no wonder the media is hesitant to criticise these products.

— Gretchen Du Beau Esq, Executive and legal director, Alliance for Natural Health.

Gardasil was fast-tracked by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to industry lobbying from the manufacturer Merck who in December 2005 submitted an application to the FDA for fast track approval. Shortly after in February 2006 Merck announced that the FDA had given the go-ahead and that Gardasil was to be given a ‘priority review’. Such an accelerated review is reserved for vaccines and other products that are urgent and for conditions where other treatment does not exist. Did Gardasil fulfill this unmet need? No it did not.

Cervical cancer is a rare outcome of HPV infection and in countries with cervical cancer screening programs, cases of the disease and fatalities have more than halved and if a cancer is found early and treatment given, the 5 year survival rate is 72%. But in spite of these facts the FDA review date was scheduled for June 8 , 2006 whereupon the first HPV vaccine was approved and recommended for all women aged between 9-26 years even though it had not been tested for the prevention of precursor lesions in females younger than 15 years of age.

If you have a girl who has been exposed to HPV and then she goes and gets a vaccine the pre-licensing data from Merck shows that she is 44.6% more likely to develop cervical lesions.

Many risks are concealed by authorities. In the UK it was only through a freedom of information request that it was determined that the level of adverse events that were recorded by the MHRA was several times higher than any other known vaccine. With MMR vaccine the next…This is not being communicated to the medical profession.

There are 225 mcgs of Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate per shot of Gardasil with the recommendation being 3 doses. Both Gardasil and Cervarix use the newer aluminium adjuvants which cause a stronger immune response than other such adjuvants.

It has no known function in any living system…The only evidence indicates that aluminium is being toxic.

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 5.37.27 PM

— Dr. Christopher Exley, PHd in Ecotoxicology of Aluminium, University of Stirling

Samples of HPV vaccines were tested.

We have been looking at the results of our analyses…we have small number of samples.

What we found with Cervarix was very interesting. We found 2.6 times the amount of aluminium in the product than that which was stated on the label.

Gardasil was absolutely within range but was 2.5 times the stated amount than in Cervarix. Both products were hovering  around 1000 parts per million level of aluminium.

There is a whole range of data emerging reminding us that there are some real issues in terms of animal studies that are showing those kind of exposure levels triggering significant  responses inflammatory responses,neurological responses.

This is just a snapshot of the interviews taken from Manufactured Crisis – HPV, Hype & Horror. It needs to be seen by the public before more damage is done to even more innocent teenagers who are told they need these vaccines to prevent cancers they are unlikely to ever get.
