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

But the show will go on

Screen Shot 2018-08-02 at 4.21.21 PM.png

Even though the award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Joan Shenton was refused permission to enter Australia this week she will be attending all 7 screenings of her documentary Sacrificial Virgins via Skype. Joan Shenton made the following statement in regard to her visa denial:

I’m very disappointed not to be able to meet in person the parents across Eastern Australia who want to know more about the risks and supposed benefits of HPV vaccinations, as well as the families who’ll be there to share stories of their loved one’s death or permanent disability. But I look forward to the screenings of Sacrificial Virgins and to having the same conversations over the air.

Sacrificial Virgins a documentary film trilogy – which investigates widespread global concerns over the safety of  HPV vaccines,  Gardasil and Cervarix has won 2 awards for investigative journalism: The prestigious  Best of the Festival award and the Watchdog Spirit Award at the Watchdog Film Festival, held in Brisbane, Australia.

Sacrificial Virgins probes the controversies surrounding Gardasil HPV vaccination programs – associated with many cases of severe neurological damage and also deaths in girls and young women – and presents new scientific evidence that questions these programs’ ability even to deliver the cervical cancer prevention that is the chief rationale for their existence. A very high proportion of 12-13 year old girls and boys in Australia are routinely administered Gardasil free of charge in school as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP).

Joan Shenton should not have had her visa delayed which has resulted in her not appearing in person. But she will be there via Skype along with International experts such as Dr Christopher Exley who is one of the world’s experts on aluminium.

Screen Shot 2018-08-02 at 4.48.44 PM

Professor Exley has been researching the subject for 30 years and says that he is not ‘anti aluminium’ but that it has never been demonstrated to be safe. Exley speaks about the history of the metal and explains that although it is abundant in the earth’s crust we have only been using it for 130 years. It was called ‘the metal of the future’ and formed the basis of much of our cookware in the 20th century. In relation to aluminium in vaccines, Exley asks: ‘How many experts did they consult before using the adjuvant?’ How would they know it was safe. He wonders how they could know the answer to this when he as an expert doesn’t even know.

Shockingly the aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. It is the vaccine itself that is subject to an approval process.

Gardasil contains 225 mcgs of aluminium per shot and Gardasil 9 has 500 mcgs per dose. It is vital that we are able to speak about HPV vaccines and the damage with at least 80,000 adverse events following their administration.

Aluminium causes the body to turn against itself. This is what we are seeing in many of the girls who have had their lives severely affected after their Gardasil shots. One of the severe adverse events is premature ovarian failure in young teenage girls. POF occurs due to the destruction by aluminium of the maturation process of the eggs in the ovaries. Shockingly this condition is underreported at the present time because many girls are on the contraceptive pill but once they stop the damage will be obvious. This is very serious, more infertility and loads of heartache to follow.

Other experts include Professor Peter Duesberg from Berkeley University who brings some much needed sanity to the whole HPV vaccine debate when he states:

The HPV found in tumour cells is a fossil, a fragment left over from a former infection…It does nothing.

Other experts joining the events are Norma Erickson who has researched and written so many enlightening articles on SaneVax along with Freda Birrell who heads the UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters and is featured on the Sacrificial Virgins documentary. The tour will also be attended by many of the girls who have had their health damaged after their Gardasil vaccines.

Here is an interview with Joan Shenton on 3AW radio earlier this week. She was interviewed by presenter Tom Elliott who quite rightly gave her time and respected her right to free speech.

Tickets are still available for the Sacrificial Virgins tour.

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.

Why I wrote ‘Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed’

 

Since a diagnosis of cervical dysplasia in the 1980s I have followed the positioning of cervical cancer as a disease caused by the wart virus, the human papilloma virus with dismay and fury. Dismay at the numbers of unwell teenagers in the wake of the HPV vaccines and fury over the very idea promoted by science and health experts that a virus causes cervical cancer.

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.

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 2.13.39 PM

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 the 19th century, cancer of the uterus including the cervix was responsible for more deaths than breast cancer. Physicians of the time suspected that the disease had something to do with sex. They thought this because cervical cancer was found to be common in single, city women whereas it was absent in nuns. However further research revealed that religious sisters were affected and so were women in long-term relationships.

Later research found that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were in some way implicated in the cause of cervical cancer. Many 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.

Then there’s the problem with the contraceptive pill and it’s negative effect on natural immunity. 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.

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.

But don’t let sense and facts get in the way of a new vaccine. And other facts of life that you won’t hear from the mainstream media but you should.

In the middle of the 20th century, cervical cancer rates in western nations were plummeting firstly due to an improvement in these socio-economic conditions followed by the advent of the Pap smear programs.

Australia has one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world with the annual incidence being 900 cases of the disease with the rate of deaths around 200 women per year.

Most of the deaths occur in women in the 70s and 80’s.

There is no epidemic of cervical cancer in Australia or other western nations.

Cervical cancer is a slow growing cancer that is amenable to treatment if discovered early through Pap smear with the five – year survival rate being 72%.

Thus cervical cancer was under control due to improved living condition and Pap smears programs and yet in 1977 a German viriologist called Harald zur Hausen announced that the human papilloma virus known for causing warts could also cause cervical cancer.

The public love hearing about science discoveries and the race began to develop a vaccine and even before there was scientific consensus that HPV was involved in cervical cancer, Professor Ian Frazer and his partner Dr Jian Zhou were given funding to develop an HPV vaccine.

Amazing how the science community and vaccine makers managed to convince most of the world that this common wart virus causes cervical cancer.

The roll – out and acceptance by the Australian community of the Gardasil vaccine was preceded by months of heavy promotion by the manufacturer Merck (USA) and CSL Ltd, the New Zealand and Australian distributor, and the mainstream media. Behind the Australian Gardasil campaign was the PR giant Edelman producing around 1000 pieces of media devoted to promoting the vaccine. The US manufacturer Merck supplied the various medical associations with lecture kits comprising of readymade presentations promoting Gardasil.

Around the country education campaigns took place stressing the incidence of cervical cancer to a public most of whom had rarely heard of cervical cancer but were now very concerned that their daughters should not develop it and were keen to have the vaccine as soon as possible.

Gardasil was fast-tracked though the U.S FDA, the food and drug administration, a process usually reserved for a drug or treatment for which there was no treatment available. Gardasil did not meet this criteria. There was no epidemic of cervical cancer and the Pap smear programs were in place and able to pick up abnormal smears.

Merck used a placebo which contained aluminium, the vaccine itself has 225 mcg of aluminium – so this was no placebo and conveniently hid the dangerous adverse effects of the vaccine. A placebo should be an inert substance such as normal saline.

Amazingly this vaccine that was sold as a prevention of cervical cancer was never tested against cervical cancer outcomes – this cannot be done for cervical cancer develops usually decades after the ‘supposed infection’ with HPV. Instead a surrogate endpoint was used to try to support the hypothesis that HPV vaccines would be effective in the prevention of cervical cancer. They chose cervical intra-epithelial grade 2/3 lesions. These are common in young women under 25 years and rarely progress to cancer. Any reduction of precursor lesions in this age group is no indication that cervical cancer will develop from high risk HPV infections.

When HPV was licensed phase 3 trials had not been completed. Nevertheless all over the world girls and boys are injected with this vaccine and thousands are maimed in the process. The severe adverse events following Gardasil vaccination include sudden collapse, paralysis, seizures, multiple sclerosis, strokes, heart palpitations, death, chronic muscle pain and weakness, autoimmune diseases, infertility and cervical cancer.

Each dose of Gardasil contains antigens (virus-like particles) which are genetically engineered. Ian Frazer and his partner couldn’t get the HPV virus to reproduce so they turned to biotechnology and produced the antigens in the laboratory. Other ingredients include polysorbate 80 known to cause infertility, L-histidine a vaso dilator which may be the cause of fainting and collapse that is occurring in the vaccinated girls.

Screen Shot 2018-02-28 at 5.01.10 PM

I hope the world is beginning to wake up to this travesty that has no basis. For as molecular biologist Professor Peter Duesberg puts it so well: If HPV is found in cervical cancer tumours it is a fossil of a previous HPV infection. He claims that there is no causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and cervical cancer. And yet we have this entire vaccination program based on the idea that this fragment or fossil causes cervical cancer and that we need to vaccinate the whole teenage population against it.

These young people are not likely to ever develop cervical cancer and if they do it will be decades later. The vaccine is said to last only up to 5 years – so what is this all about? More boosters!

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.

The damaged girls are taking legal action. In Japan 28 girls and women are suing the government and the manufacturers – each demanding 15 million yen in compensation for a wide range of health problems including all over body pain and impaired mobility after HPV vaccination. The Japanese government ceased promotion of the HPV vaccines in 2013 after girls were becoming unwell. The vaccination rate fell to 1%. Other government such as ours has not taken any action – they are unreceptive to any discussion of any vaccine at all.

700 Columbian girls are suing Merck for damages caused to life and health. After their vaccination they were accused of being hysterical with health officials suggesting their illnesses were the result of illicit drug use. The sick Irish girls and their parents are part of the support group Regret- reactions and effects of Gardasil resulting in extreme trauma. They have met with their health officials who have listened to their stories concluding that the vaccine was not at fault and that the girls are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. In Ireland the rate of cervical cancer is 300 women annually and yet now there are at least 400 girls who have become extremely unwell after their unnecessary vaccinations. It is madness.

These very unwell girls have been high achievers, excelled at school and sport and post vaccination many can’t even go to school and some can’t manage to get out of bed. Here in Australia you would think that this was the best thing that had happened for women ever with Ian ‘Frazer claiming The vaccine will be of benefit to women. But tell that to the thousands of vaccine injured women, Professor.

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 and yet most of us have the virus. We are made of germs.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Another blow for teen health as Gardasil is approved for Irish boys

Slowly but surely boys are being included in HPV vaccination programs throughout the world. At present there are 84 government-funded HPV vaccination programmes where 18 countries which include Canada, Slovenia, the United States, New Zealand, Australia and Italy are now vaccinating boys along with girls.

Early this month the Irish government joined these countries and voted to include the HPV vaccine for teenage boys. In Ireland the uptake of the vaccine has dropped to only 50% of girls and efforts are in place to address the fall with much emphasis placed on the need for so-called ‘herd immunity‘. During the parliamentary debate on HPV vaccines there were references to the ‘success’ of our Australian campaign and it was claimed that

there has been a 90% reduction in the number of cases of genital warts in men and women reported

It may well be the case that there has been a reduction in genital warts but this does not mean there is a reduction in cervical cancer. There is no proof that HPV vaccines Gardasil or Cervarix have prevented a single case of cervical cancer and wasn’t that the point of the vaccine.

As these HPV vaccines are promoted for more and more conditions such as anal and penile cancers and now for the prevention of head and neck cancers I wonder if cervical cancer was really the main game or rather the fear of this woman’s cancer was used to argue for research and capital and the development of this dirty vaccine.

The media hype was extraordinary with the public made fearful about a cancer which in Australia is responsible for around 220 deaths a year with the deaths occurring in older women most of whom had not had Pap smears.

In 2013 Australia began vaccinating teenage boys with Gardasil and many now suffer from its devastating side effects. There are reports of serious problems such as syncope and seizures. Reading through the 70 plus pages of events on the TGA website dating from the middle of 2013 until December 2017 it is clear that they are suffering in a similar way to the girls with neurological, cardiac, allergic, and gastrointestinal disorders to name just a few of the life altering conditions that are associated with this vaccination program.

To extend this vaccine to Irish boys is the wrong decision.

One of the reasons cited for the extension of the vaccine to boys is that the vaccine may prevent anal cancer but such cancers are rare and more commonly diagnosed in people aged 50 to 60 years. Then there is the purported risk of penile cancer which is also relatively rare globally with an annual incidence of less than 1 case per 100,000 person in western countries. The other reason cited is to stop transfer of HPV to girls and therefore act against cervical cancer but once again there is no scientific proof that HPV causes cervical cancer.

The side effects are likely to manifest in fertility problems for boys. We are already seeing many girls post vaccination experiencing early menopause. This is all very tragic and totally unnecessary.

Studies for male fertility and the male reproductive effects post-Gardasil, were limited at best. Internationally, there are already reports of boys and young men reporting erectile dysfunction and other new medical conditions post-Gardasil.

The carnage in the wake of this HPV vaccination program is very real with over 400 reported deaths occurring in previously healthy young girls. Sadly there are now reports of fatalities in boys and in January 2018 Colton Berrett from Utah took his own life after struggling for years with massive health issues that occurred directly after receiving Gardasil.

Just before going on a Scouting trip, he went in for a medical exam. His doctor advised him, and his parents, to take the HPV vaccine because, according to his doctor: “It can help prevent cancer”. He was told that even if he was not promiscuous, he could in the future potentially pass HPV on to his wife.

Two weeks after his third course of Gardasil , Colton was experiencing a sore neck. Then serious lethargy came. Then paralysis in his right arm and hand. The scans showed that Colton had serious inflammation from the C1 to T12 vertebrae. He was given an initial diagnosis of transverse myelitis.

Those who knew Colton said that he didn’t complain but his life was tough. He was permanently connected to a ventilator, dependent on constant therapy and at such a young age and all for a disease he was never going to get.

In Colton’s case the doctors recognised that he was experiencing a serious adverse reaction to the Gardasil vaccine and reported it to Vaers, the vaccine adverse event reporting register. Another life gone and untold grief for his family.

It is a tragedy and one that was completely avoidable.

In July 2017 UK boys and their parents were able to breathe a sigh of relief after the decision was made not to vaccinate boys against the human papilloma virus (HPV).  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 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. Ireland now joins the group of countries that have rushed to vaccinate teenage boys along with its girls. None of us can afford to relax while this disastrous vaccine is out there.

In praise of the Alternative Media

 

The December 2017-January 2018 edition of Nexus contains a 7 page extract from my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and FlawedMy thanks go to Nexus, an alternative news magazine for publishing this important story. The magazine is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary and began publishing in 1987 with its aim being

 to present hard-to-get, ignored and suppressed information on the subjects of health, science, the unexplained, world events and history. Our goal is the day when all people of all races and colours can live together in total trust and respect, on a planet that is clean, abundant and healthy.

The story of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines is indeed one of the most heavily suppressed health stories. In How Mainstream Media Insults the Public’s Intelligence on Vaccines, U.S. Martha Rosenberg writes:

There is a bitter war going on, and it’s not over Trumpcare or immigration: It is about vaccinesMainstream media and medical groups, typically funded or backed by Big Pharma, cast parents who are skeptical about vaccines as conspiracy theorists whose backward beliefs put the public at risk.

An example of the pathetic mainstream reporting on Gardasil and HPV vaccines can be seen in a recent article by The Guardian.  Science editor Robin McKie reports that health officials are worried because Japan, Ireland and Denmark are now witnessing a fall in the uptake of the HPV vaccines and they fear that more nations will follow this example.

Last week doctors gathered in Dublin to discuss what they could do to turn this around. Professor Margaret Stanley of Cambridge University stated that “Whenever a new vaccine is introduced, there is always a group of people who say it is unsafe,” adding that …”the HPV vaccine seems to raise extraordinary levels of hostility.” She cites as possible reasons the huge part that social media is playing (just as well) and suggests that the reactions to the vaccine are heightened because the recipients are young and ‘highly emotional’. Never mind that the vaccine is resulting in a higher number of adverse events than any other vaccine. This is not mentioned.

Over history women have been denied the legitimacy of their illnesses. More recently in March 2014 after 700 Columbian women were admitted to the hospital suffering new medical conditions after the administration of Gardasil, the National Ministry of Health referred to this as a case of mass hysteria and even suggested that the illnesses were a result of illicit drug use or overuse of the ouija board. Such abuse is becoming all too common for in August 2017 the Irish Health  Service labelled HPV vaccine injured Irish girls  “emotional terrorists”.

It is high time the mainstream media report on the tragedy that has thousands of girls and now boys remaining extremely unwell after having been vaccinated for a disease they were unlikely to ever develop. It is more than time for the mainstream media to relate the stories of our vaccine injured teenagers.  It is time that the public is informed there is no scientific evidence that Gardasil has ever presented a single case of cervical cancer.

Thankfully our alternative media such as Nexus is not afraid of the Gardasil story. It informs that these HPV vaccines were poorly tested, that they contain unsafe additives and are associated with thousands of adverse events. The extract taken from Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed includes a discussion on cervical cancer and its causes and how the HPV vaccines were fast-tracked through the FDA.

Nexus is available by subscription, through newsagents and online.

What’s up with Gardasil?

SPN-Gardasil Cover

My interest in the issue of Gardasil and cervical cancer began after a routine Pap smear revealed my cervical dysplasia in the 1980s. I remember being afraid that I might go on and develop cancer but fortunately I didn’t. From then on I have followed the cervical cancer story. Along the way I learned that vaccination science was not what I had previously thought or been taught. A great lecture I attended enlightened me to the fact that infectious diseases declined as our living conditions improved – sanitation, clean water and good nutrition were the drivers of declining rates of diphtheria, typhoid and smallpox, not vaccination.

When science began spruiking a vaccine for cervical cancer I could hardly believe it. How on earth did we get to this state where we are blaming a virus for cervical cancer?

In the 19th century, cancer of the uterus including the cervix was responsible for more deaths than breast cancer. Physicians of the time suspected that the disease had something to do with sex. They thought this because cervical cancer was found to be common in single, city women whereas it was absent in nuns. However further research revealed that religious sisters were affected and so were women in longterm relationships.

Later researchers looked at the socioeconomic conditions of the time and cited smoking, and dietary deficiencies such as low levels of vitamin D and folate as risk factors for the disease. Other contributing factors for cervical cancer was multiparity – having more than one child.

From the middle of the 20th century cervical cancer rates in western nations were plummeting due to an improvement in these socio-economic conditions with this welcome reduction continuing with the advent of the Pap smear programs.

Australia has one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world with the annual incidence being 900 cases of the disease with the rate of deaths around 200 women per year. Most of the deaths occur in women in the 70s and 80’s. There is no epidemic of cervical cancer in Australia or other western nations. It is a slow growing cancer that is amenable to treatment if discovered early through Pap smear with the five – year survival rate being 72%.

Cervical cancer was under control due to improved living condition and Pap smears programs and yet in 1977 German viriologist Harald zur Hausen announced that the human papilloma virus known for causing warts could also cause cervical cancer. The public love hearing about science discoveries and the race began to develop a vaccine and even before there was scientific consensus on this new theory, Professor Ian Frazer and his partner Dr Jian Zhou were given funding to develop an HPV vaccine. Such are the workings of the vaccine industry.

HPV is a very common wart virus and most of the adult population has been infected at some point. 90% of these infections are resolved by the immune system within 2 years. So how did the science community and vaccine makers manage to convince most of the world that this wart virus causes cervical cancer?

In regard to the situation in Australia the roll – out and acceptance by the Australian community of Gardasil was preceded by months of heavy promotion by the manufacturer Merck (USA) and CSL Ltd, the New Zealand and Australian distributor, and the mainstream media. Behind the Australian Gardasil campaign was the PR giant Edelman producing around 1000 pieces of media devoted to promoting the vaccine. The US manufacturer Merck supplied the various medical associations with lecture kits comprising of readymade presentations promoting Gardasil. Around the country education campaigns took place stressing the incidence of cervical cancer to a public most of whom had rarely heard of cervical cancer but were now very concerned that their daughters should not develop it and were keen to have the vaccine as soon as possible.

Professor Ian Frazer was seen vaccinating young women in Australia. A spectacle to behold! Co- developer of the vaccine Ian Frazer became a national hero and even ‘Australian of the Year’ in 2006. What better publicity could there be for Gardasil and the success of the campaign.

Gardasil is described as one the worst vaccines ever produced and responsible for more adverse events than any other. There are 30,000 videos on You Tube documenting the disaster and the ruined lives of young girls and now boys. Tragically the vaccine industry is in the process of including this vaccine in the childhood schedule – babies can’t tell you that they were well before the vaccine and that now they aren’t so well. Horrific!

The vaccine was fast-tracked though the U.S FDA, the food and drug administration, a process usually reserved for a drug or treatment for which there was no treatment available. Gardasil did not meet this criteria. There was no epidemic of cervical cancer and the Pap smear programs were in place and able to pick up abnormal smears.

Merck used a placebo which contained aluminium, the vaccine itself has 225 mcg of aluminium – so this was no placebo and conveniently hid the problems with the vaccine. A placebo should be an inert substance such as normal saline.

Amazingly this vaccine that was sold as a prevention of cervical cancer was never tested against cervical cancer outcomes – this cannot be done for cervical cancer develops usually decades after the ‘supposed infection’ with HPV. Instead a surrogate endpoint was used to try to support the hypothesis that HPV vaccines would be effective in the prevention of cervical cancer. They chose cervical intra-epithelial grade 2/3 lesions. These are common in young women under 25 years and rarely progress to cancer. Any reduction of precursor lesions in this age group is no indication that cervical cancer will develop from high risk HPV infections.

When HPV was licensed phase 3 trials had not been completed. Nevertheless all over the world girls and boys are injected with this vaccine and thousands are maimed in the process. The severe adverse events following Gardasil vaccination include sudden collapse, paralysis, seizures, multiple sclerosis, strokes, heart palpitations, death, chronic muscle pain and weakness, autoimmune diseases, infertility and cervical cancer.

Each dose of Gardasil contains antigens (virus-like particles) which are genetically engineered. Ian Frazer and his partner couldn’t get the HPV virus to reproduce so they turned to biotechnology and produced the antigens in the laboratory. Other ingredients include polysorbate 80 known to cause infertility, L-histidine a vaso dilator which may be the cause of fainting and collapse that is occurring in the vaccinated girls.

Over 73000 serious adverse events have been reported-though this is not the complete picture for only 1-10 percent are ever reported. Most of the girls I have spoken to, have never reported their illness post vaccination- they did not know that they could or should or where to do this.

Sacrificial Virgins: Part 1 – Not for the greater good

I hope the world is beginning to wake up to this travesty that has no basis. For as molecular biologist Professor Peter Duesberg puts it so well: If HPV is found in cervical cancer tumours it is a fossil of a previous HPV infection. He claims that there is no causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and cervical cancer. And yet we have this entire vaccination program based on the idea that this fragment or fossil causes cervical cancer and that we need to vaccinate the whole teenage population against it. These young people are not likely to ever develop cervical cancer and if they do it will be decades later. The vaccine is said to last only up to 5 years – so what is this all about?

In Australia in 2014 there were 224 deaths from this particular cancer whereas deaths from breast cancer in the same year were responsible for almost 2800 a year. There is no epidemic of cervical cancer in western nations.

We are beginning to hear of cases being heard in the courts. In Japan 28 girls and women are suing the government and the manufacturers – each demanding 15 million yen in compensation for a wide range of health problems including all over body pain and impaired mobility after HPV vaccination. The Japanese government ceased promotion of the HPV vaccines in 2013 after girls were becoming unwell. The vaccination rate fell to 1%. Other government such as ours has not taken any action – they are unreceptive to any discussion of any vaccine at all.

700 Columbian girls are suing Merck for damages caused to life and health. After their vaccination they were accused of being hysterical with health officials suggesting their illnesses were the result of illicit drug use. The sick Irish girls and their parents are part of the support group Regret- reactions and effects of Gardasil resulting in extreme trauma. They have met with their health officials who have listened to their stories concluding that the vaccine was not at fault and that the girls are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. In Ireland the rate of cervical cancer is 300 women annually and yet now there are at least 400 girls who have become extremely unwell after their unnecessary vaccinations. It is madness. These very unwell girls have been high achievers, excelled at school and sport and post vaccination many can’t even go to school and some can’t manage to get out of bed. Here in Australia you would think that this was the best thing that had happened for women ever with Ian ‘Frazer claiming The vaccine will be of benefit to women. But tell that to the thousands of vaccine injured women, Professor.

While the Australian government has been woefully silent on Gardasil, it has been up to sick women themselves to attempt to get justice. In 2013, Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old Melbourne woman, began a class action civil lawsuit against drug maker Merck after suffering autoimmune and neurological complications following her Gardasil shots. Her disabling symptoms included convulsions, severe back and neck pain, and an inability to walk. This caused her doctors to suspect she had multiple sclerosis, a diagnosis that was later retracted in favour of a neurological reaction to the vaccine. Seven other women, who had also been very ill following their HPV vaccinations, joined Naomi in her battle to seek justice however the claim against Merck did not proceed as the litigant Naomi was suffering considerable stress brought on by the impending case.

Proving causation is difficult. It is the last thing that doctors are going to admit. Even when they do suspect it’s the vaccine that’s responsible for the neurological or the autoimmune condition they don’t go on and report this.

When Kristin Clulow, one of the young women in my book Gardasil: Fast tracked and Flawed was asked by her neurologist if she had been given any vaccines recently and she told him she had – he replied: ‘that will be it’. But did he report his list of patients who had recently been given Gardasil. We don’t know. He’d probably be told by his masters to keep quiet about it.

One of the new diseases that is caused by this vaccine and the hepatits B shot is macrophagic myofasciitis. MMF occurs when the aluminium hydroxide adjuvant in the vaccine remains embedded in the muscle tissue. MMF results in chronic muscular and nerve pain. So many of the young Gardasil women report such allover body pain. The neurotoxin aluminium is added to a vaccine to enhance the immune response and is found in vaccines that contain dead viruses. These include HPV, hepatitis A and B, diphtheria-tetanus, haemophilus influenza and pneumococcal vaccines and most of these are given to very young children.

Professor Chris Exley is an expert of all things aluminium. Exley asks: ‘How many experts did they consult before using aluminium as an adjuvant? How would they know that it was safe. He wonders how they could answer this as he as an expert doesn’t even know.

This is very serious for according to the World Health Organisation the vaccine industry will be worth 100 billion dollars a year by 2025. How many more poorly tested, dangerous and useless vaccines will our children be forced to bear?

Aluminium causes the body to turn against itself. This is what we are seeing in many of the poor girls who have had their lives damaged and in some cases ruined after Gardasil. One of the serious adverse effects turning up in teenage girls is premature ovarian failure. POF occurs after aluminium destructs the maturation process of the eggs in the ovaries. These girls are then enter an early menopause, they become infertile in their teenage years.

Another mechanism by which damage is occurring is that of molecular mimicry. This occurs because one of the antigens in Gardasil, the HPV 16 L1 protein almost identically matches 34 peptides in our bodies. So when a vaccinated person develops an antibody to the HPV 16 protein they can also develop an antibody reaction to their own system in multiple locations. The number of viral matches and locations makes the occurrence of autoimmune reactions across the body almost unavoidable.

This is a tragedy.

And I wonder how many of these sick young people are being diagnosed with diseases such as multiple sclerosis without any connection made by the patient and rarely by the neurologist. Recently an episode of the ABC’s Lateline reported on the increase of multiple sclerosis in young women. The young woman featured was in her early 20s and had been unwell since she was 13 years old. This of course is the age that Gardasil is given. I don’t know if she had received Gardasil but it made me wonder when she described her symptoms: headaches, sensory deficit affecting her leg and fatigue resulting in her missing a lot of school whether this was a case of vaccine injury. If these sick girls are being diagnosed with chronic diseases like MS and other neurological or autoimmune conditions and no-one is asking why this has happened – we will not know that full extent of the damage.

But the vaccine manufacturers do know the extent of the damage:

According to the Gardasil 9 package information insert, the following percentage of serious adverse events were collected during follow-up (up to 48 months):

Gardasil 9 2.3%

                                          Gardasil

                   2.5%

Cervical cancer rates are always quoted as # per 100,000. Given the above information, for every 100,000 people using Gardasil 9 there would be 2,300 serious adverse events. And for every 100,000 people using Gardasil there would be 2,500 serious adverse events.

But the cervical cancer diagnosis rate in the United States is 7.9/100,000 and in Australia it is 6/100,000. It doesn’t make any sense to cause 2300 or 2500 per 100,000 injured teenagers for these manageable rates of cancer unless of course you are a vaccine manufacturer.

And yet knowing this, the vaccine was approved and licensed to be given all over the world to our young teenagers all over the world.

The story of Gardasil a vaccine purported to be preventative against cervical cancer is part of a bigger story – that of the lucrative vaccine industry. Any debate on vaccines is suppressed particularly in Australia. The federal AMA president Michael Gannon referred to the increasing vocal dissent as ‘quack theories’. But they are not. The problems with the vaccines are clearly printed on the package inserts. The full list of the adverse events plus the expected number of injuries are there in black and white. The AMA, and the health departments and ministers along with the cowardly media continue to falsely shape the community’s beliefs about vaccination.

Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 2.29.06 PM

Next year the Gardasil 9 vaccine takes the place of the quadrivalent Gardasil in Australian school vaccination programs. There are five more antigens in this new vaccine and double the amount of aluminium and who knows how many more vaccine injured girls and boys. There is no debate in this country.

The arrival of Gardasil 9 was received by our uncritical media: “A new version of the Gardasil vaccine has been developed and, according to Professor Suzanne Garland, ‘the eradication of cervical cancer is now firmly within our sights.’ Garland is the lead Australian author of a global trial published in The Lancet and funded by the drug’s manufacturer Merck which came to the conclusion that the new HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 could prevent 90 per cent of cervical cancers worldwide.

It is incredible that the obvious conflict of interest, with the manufacturer funding studies into its own product, seems to have been entirely ignored in the hype surrounding the Gardasil 9 vaccine.

What Merck has done is fund a study into its own product. Buoyed by the claims of the study’s author, even though they are purely speculative, Merck will now endeavour to ensure that every Australian teenager is administered with Gardasil 9, by accessing the limited resources of the public health purse.

What a lucrative profit-making exercise: fund studies into your own products, talk up the results, and thanks to the newspapers of Australia and their blinkered journalism, sit back and watch the money roll in.

It is surely time for the truth to come out.

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.
