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

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 9.07.38 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2018-01-11 at 12.53.23 PM

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.

Vaccination ‘wars’ continue in Victoria

This week Martin Foley, the acting Health Minister in the Victorian government called those of us who do not wish to vaccinate our children and those who speak out about the lack of choice in this serious matter  ‘irresponsible rogues’. Referring to new data which indicated that the Australian state of Victoria had now reached the 95 per cent target for childhood immunisation required for “herd immunity” the minister stated:

“This record is proof that parents don’t buy into lies of irresponsible rogues putting out myths about immunisation”

The myth of Herd Immunity 

The herd immunity myth as it is applied to vaccine induced immunity took hold decades ago when vaccination proponents argued that vaccines provided lifelong immunity in the same way as natural immunity. Natural immunity lasts a lifetime whereas vaccine induced immunity does not.

Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations – Dr. Russell Blaylock MD

Minister, we do not lie about the dangers of vaccines. We refute the often repeated mantra that vaccinations are very safe.  In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” The U.S Vaccine Injury Court has paid out over $3 billion in damages.

The U.S. government created this specific court in 1986 to protect pharmaceutical companies from the direct lawsuits that were arising due to the preponderance of illnesses and injuries that were stemming from the company’s vaccination products.  By establishing the Vaccine Court, the government now protects the pharmaceutical industry by trying the cases and awarding damages from a federal excise tax added to the cost of each dosage of a vaccine.

It is time that Australian parents are told the truth and not fed lies by their governments both federal and state. Many of us who speak out about the ever increasing list of vaccines forced on the population were once pro-vaccine and vaccinated both ourselves and our children. Many have learnt the hard way by having our children damaged by what our governments refer to as ‘safe’ vaccines. Others have become researchers spending many long hours learning that vaccines are not necessary and have only been used for little over 200 years.

Infectious diseases that are now feared and for which there are vaccines to be given were disappearing before the advent of vaccines. Improved living conditions such as good nutrition, education and sanitation were the catalysts for this positive change. There is no need and indeed it is very harmful to be injecting babies from birth with hepatitis B vaccines containing aluminium to stimulate the new immune system of an infant. This over-vaccination of young children today is madness and may well be judged as one of the most stupid mistakes humans have ever made. In Australia today:

By the time a child is five, s/he will have received a total of 41 vaccine doses when the schedule has been followed to the letter.  This rises to 46 vaccine doses when the recommended yearly influenza vaccines are included, and then to 50 doses when the two recommended antenatal vaccines, Influenza, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Whooping Cough are also included.

Author of In the wake of Vaccines, Barbara Loe Fisher writes”

“Instead of epidemics of measles and polio, we have epidemics of chronic autoimmune and neurological disease: In the last 20 years rates of asthma and attention-deficit disorder have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled, chronic arthritis now affects nearly one in five Americans and autism has increased by 300 percent or more in many states.”

Acting health minister Foley uses the word ‘immunisation’ when referring to the practice of ‘vaccination’. But does he understand the meaning of this frequently bandied about term?

What is Vaccination? 

The World Health Organisation (WHO) describes a vaccine as:

… a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. The agent stimulates the body’s immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and ‘remember’ it, so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters

Dr Philip Incao describes the limitations of vaccination

Vaccinations are usually effective in preventing an individual from manifesting a particular illness, but they do not improve the overall strength or health of the individual nor of the immune system.

Dr Lucija Tomljenovic describes in  Forced Vaccinations: For the Greater Good?  how vaccines fail to bring about cellular immunity and thus protection from disease

… vaccines primarily stimulate humoral immunity (antibody-based or Th2 responses) while they have little or no effect on cellular immunity (cytotoxic T-cells, Th1 responses), which is absolutely crucial for protection against viral as well as some bacterial pathogens. Tomljenovic suggests that this failure to bring about cellular immunity may be why booster shots of vaccines are often needed.

 

What is Immunisation?

There are two compartments to the human immune system.

1. The humoral immune system (or Th2 function)

The humoral immune system produces antibodies in the bloodstream as a response to the presence of foreign antigens in the body. When we give a vaccination we are greatly stimulating the antibody production (Th2) and avoiding the inflammatory response. (Th1). If a vaccine stimulated the whole immune system we would get all the symptoms of disease such as the fever, malaise, pain and discharge.

2. The cellular or cell-mediated immune system (or Th1 function)

The cellular immune system gets rid of foreign antigens through the work of cells in the thymus, tonsils, adenoids, spleen and the lymph system. This action of ridding the body of foreign antigens is known as an acute inflammatory response of the body. This is manifested by the classical signs such as fever, pain, malaise and discharge of mucus, pus, skin rash or diarrhoea. These are signs of illness that indicate our immune system is working to expel foreign matter from our body.

According to Dr Incao:

A growing number of scientists believe that the large increase in allergic and autoimmune diseases (which stimulate the humoral branch of the immune system) throughout America, Europe, Australia, and Japan, is caused by the lack of stimulation of the cellular branch due to the lack of acute inflammatory illnesses and discharges in childhood.

This is what the public deserve to be told. Children need to have their natural immunity challenged by the childhood infectious diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella not vaccines.

As we continue to add more and more vaccinations to the childhood schedule the assault on the immune system worsens. The manifestation of the disease may be suppressed but the disease actually never gets resolved. The organisms continue to circulate in the body causing further disease. Thus the scene is ripe for the development of autoimmune diseases such as asthma, diabetes, eczema and many other debilitating conditions.

What determines the autoimmune disease you can develop depends on which tissues in are attacked by auto-antibodies. If the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked then insulin dependent (juvenile) diabetes can occur.

Vaccines injure children

Vaccines injure children, and the U.S. government has an entire division set up to compensate families. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $3.7 billion.

As a result an increasing and alarming number of children have chronic conditions which include autism, asthma, allergies, and seizures and are conditions for which those affected need much care.

In Australia, even if a vaccine injury is verbally acknowledged as being attributed to a vaccine, it is not mandatory that  reported for further investigation. There is no compensation scheme in Australia despite repeated calls for such. However 19 countries around the world have introduced no-fault vaccine compensation schemes including Germany, New Zealand, USA, Britain and most European countries. These countries acknowledge that injury occurs but in Australia politicians and health officials keep telling us that vaccines are safe.

The number of reported adverse reactions to the MMR since 1990 is nearly 7,000, and most are not reported. Vaccines are not run through the same rigorous trials as drugs. A “vaccinated vs. unvaccinated” study has never been conducted. No one has ever done a double-blind placebo controlled study on multiple-dose vaccines given multiple times.

According to Aisha Dow  the inner suburbs of Melbourne have the lowest vaccination rates with Melbourne having 70 to 75 per cent of five-year-olds fully vaccinated, and in the nearby suburbs of St Kilda and South Melbourne, the rate is 80 to 85 per cent. Suburbs boasting vaccination rates of close to 100 per cent at age five include Yarraville, Keilor, Moonee Ponds, Pascoe Vale, Epping, Eltham, Upwey, Hawthorn East, Greenvale and Chadstone.  It is likely that socioeconomic factors are a factor in these rates of vaccination with those who are better off  financially able to go without the government family payments that are only available to those who comply with unfair enforced vaccination. It has also been found that well educated parents are among those who choose not to vaccinate. This may go some way in explaining the vaccination rates listed here.

If you have a pre-school child and you happen to live in the Australian states of New South Wales or Victoria and unless your child is up to date with the national vaccination schedule, they are unable to attend child care services such as long day care, preschool/kindergarten, family day care and occasional care. Such is the state of our punitive vaccination laws in Australia which also include loss of family benefits/rebates and family tax benefits for failure to comply with our strict vaccination schedule.

Nature has long been seen as the enemy by our ‘health’ system. New technologies continue to flourish and death is deferred.

Radical Philosopher Ivan Illich described the transformation of the human condition, clearly depicting our state of un-health.

By transforming pain, illness, and death from a personal challenge into a technical problem, medical practice expropriates the potential of people to deal with their human condition in an autonomous way and becomes the source of a new kind of un-health.

Screen Shot 2017-11-29 at 3.34.59 PM

Sadly our mainstream media continues to be silent about these developments and instead gives relentless voice to politicians who attack those who simply want to bring up healthy children and grandchildren free from vaccine injury and suppression of their natural immunity. Not much to ask surely!

Postpartum mothers recruited by Merck and the University of Alabama for Gardasil 9 vaccine trials

Screen Shot 2018-03-14 at 7.00.27 PM I am horrified to read that the latest group being targeted as possible recipients of Gardasil are pregnant women.

Markab Algedi  writes that the University of Alabama at Birmingham along with vaccine producer Merck plan to trial Gardasil 9 on postpartum mothers. The women who agree to be part of the trial will be between the ages of 16 and 26, and receive the vaccine immediately after having their children at the UAB hospital.

Here is the part of the summary of the trial as described on the ClinicalTrials.gov website. The trial will start in June 2018 with an estimated enrollment of 200 mothers.

Due to low HPV vaccine uptake in the US, innovative approaches to vaccinating vulnerable populations are necessary in order to maximize the cancer prevention potential of this vaccine. The puerperium is a time period when women are engaged in the healthcare system and have almost universal access to affordable health care. Two prior studies have shown that postpartum HPV vaccination is acceptable to patients, and high rates of vaccination were achieved in these primarily Hispanic populations. However, data show that the immune response in young women is less robust than in adolescents, and no studies have examined immunogenicity in postpartum women specifically. We propose an HPV vaccination pilot study in women who receive postpartum care at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) hospital. We will examine the acceptability, uptake and immunogenicity of the vaccine in the postpartum setting.
This is desperate and unethical
Due to the low vaccination rate it is somehow thought that it would be a good idea to give Gardasil to pregnant women thus extending the vaccine’s reach and resulting profits. This is desperate and unethical. These are women who come to the hospital to give birth and to receive what little postpartum care there is these days. It is  morally wrong to trial a vaccine on this cohort of women while they are recovering from childbirth and preparing for life with a new baby which includes breast-feeding the infant. I am horrified at the thought and more so that this is permitted.
Adverse events following Gardasil
There are thousands of young girls and now boys who have become ill following HPV vaccination which includes Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix.  According to Vigibase the database of the World Health Organisation there have been at least 84,000 adverse events following the administration of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. Then there are also over 56,000 adverse events recorded on the USA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System (VAERS). This is just a small measure of the damage coming after HPV vaccination for few people realise where to report their ill health. Many of the injured may not be aware that their new diagnosis of an autoimmune disease or neurological disease is related to their recent Gardasil vaccination.

The most frequently reported reactions manifest as autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, vasculitis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and neurological diseases such as encephalopathy, neuropathy, and seizure disorders. But other bodily systems are affected with increasing reports of premature ovarian failure and infertility in young girls. Then there’s the very serious gastrointestinal disorders, cancer and death. This is a vaccine which should be taken off the market, not extended to new mothers.

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. Do those proposing to vaccinate young mothers have any idea how this vaccine might affect the infant? As well as containing the HPV antigens 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58, Gardasil 9 also contains 500 mcgs of aluminium adjuvant, yeast protein, L-histidine, polysorbate 80 and sodium borate. Polysorbate 80 and sodium borate have been linked to infertility in rats and therefore should not form part of any vaccine given to young women. Aluminium is a proven neurotoxin and once injected in the body can migrate and accumulate in the brain. Scientists at Keele University have recently discovered the way the aluminium in vaccine adjuvants travels from the site of injection to the brain. Another Gardasil additive L-histidine causes vasodilation and may be the reason for the common dangerous symptom of syncope or collapse experienced by many girls following Gardasil.

Gardasil and lactation

A search of  Clinical Studies in Humans  reveals that it is not known whether vaccine antigens or antibodies induced by the vaccine are excreted in human milk. This is clearly not very reassuring and this information should form part of any informed consent that young women are given.

Premature menopause and infertility

And what about the known effects of Gardasil on the reproductive system of girls and women which include premature menopause. Dr Deidre Little is an Australian doctor who questions the safety of the Gardasil vaccine. In the BMJ Case Reports authors Deidre Little and Harvey Rodrick Grenville Ward reported the case of a patient with amenorrhoea who had noticed that her usual regular menstrual cycle had changed, becoming irregular and then scant after her HPV vaccinations. The authors explain that it is very rare for the condition known as premature ovarian failure to occur at such an early age and that the annual incidence is 10 per 100,000 between 15 and 29 years of age. Premature ovarian failure is a serious health event for young girls and one that adversely affects their ability to have children.

Are these postpartum women informed of possible risks to their future ability to have children?  This vaccine needs to be recalled, not trialled and marketed to more vulnerable people.

Gardasil trials on babies
In my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed  I have written that the consumer group targeted for HPV vaccines is on the increase and that I am extremely worried to hear that a clinical trial   was looking at the effects of Gardasil in infants.
Dr Joseph Mercola provides more information about this infant trial:
  • In a trial sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health in Hungary, in collaboration with Merck, researchers are testing the 4-valent Gardasil vaccine in children to treat recurrent respiratory paillomatosis (RRP), a rare childhood disease caused by HPV
  • Initially the study was to enroll children as young as 1 year old with RRP and administer three doses of HPV vaccine to “assess response to vaccination,” but recent study details indicate the tests are ongoing in children as young as 28 days old
  • The study’s status remains unknown, as it has not yet been reported as completed
Before we add more vulnerable groups to those who receive Gardasil vaccines let us be clear about how this vaccination program began. HPV vaccines were said to prevent cervical cancer in women and were heavily marketed for this property. But the vaccines were not tested against cervical cancer outcomes. There is no scientific proof anywhere in the world that HPV vaccines have prevented a single case of cervical cancer. The vaccination program began with teenage girls and now includes boys not because they are at risk of cervical cancer but because they may be at risk of becoming ill with HPV related cancers of the penis, anus and throat.
No epidemic of cervical cancer
Postpartum women need to recover from birth and the last thing they need is HPV vaccination. There is no need to give this vaccine to anyone. Pap smear programs reduced the rate of cervical cancer by 50% in western nations. There is no epidemic of cervical cancer in the west. Improvements in living conditions and Pap smear programs are needed to prevent cervical cancer in developing nations.

There’s already two unnecessary childhood vaccines for rotavirus

 Screen Shot 2018-02-26 at 8.04.48 PM
SBS  news reports:

Australian scientists have successfully developed an effective oral vaccine that protects babies against the potentially deadly rotavirus from birth

The new vaccine is called RV3-BB and plans are now underway to pursue clinical trials in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Africa.

What is rotavirus?

Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhoea in children all over the world. In the first few months of life children are protected by way of maternal antibodies transferred from their mother and via breastfeeding.

The National Vaccination Information Centre states:

By the age of five, most children have had several rotavirus infections and have developed natural antibodies that protect them from symptoms of diarrhoea when they are re-infected as they get older.

What is the treatment for rotavirus infection?

Most children do not require treatment for this common infection. They may need extra rest and fluids to prevent dehydration and if the case is severe intravenous re-hydration may be necessary. In developing countries where sanitation and medical facilities are lacking the disease can be fatal.  In Australia, it is estimated that there are around 10,000 hospitalisations and one death annually in children usually under two years old from rotavirus. Hospitalisation rates are five times greater in Indigenous Australians compared with non-Indigenous children.

Screen Shot 2018-02-26 at 8.09.48 PM Co-author along with Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D, of The Vaccine Friendly Plan, paediatrician Dr Paul Thomas has an opinion on Rotavirus vaccines.

In America the vast majority of rotavirus infections will be mild. When vomiting and diarrhoea are severe, anti-nausea drugs exist to treat the problem. My experience indicates that the rotavirus vaccine is unnecessary as long as families practice good hygiene, drink clean water and have access to health care if a child gets dehydrated and needs IV fluids…But the rotavirus vaccine is unnecessary for American babies. There is no reason to give it. Take a pass on the rotavirus vaccine. Anti-diarrhoea medications aren’t recommended for a rotavirus infection.

Australian babies do not need these vaccines either. Australia has excellent standards of hygiene, sanitation and medical care.

Nevertheless there are two rotavirus vaccines currently available in Australia:

Rotarix manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, and Merck’s RotaTeq.

The Rotavirus live attenuated vaccine Rotarix  is given to Australian babies at 2 months and again at 4 months.

Are Rotavirus vaccines safe?

The first rotavirus vaccine RotaShield which was licensed only in the United States was discontinued in 1999 after 15 infants who received the vaccine developed intussusception (a type of bowel obstruction that occurs when the bowel folds in on itself). According to Dr Paul Thomas, both RotaTeq and Rotarix which are used by 77 countries worldwide may also cause intussusception. He reports that this bowel disorder was very rare before the introduction of rotavirus vaccines but since their use the rates of this disorder have increased. Statistics from his own practice reveal that children who received the rotavirus vaccine were four times more likely to suffer gastroenteritis than those who were not vaccinated against the disease.

So why are these vaccines given?

The author of Follow the money describes the Revolving Door/Conflict of Interest

The vaccine industry is worldwide with significant profit margins. It’s no wonder then that when an already manufactured, researched and designed, patented vaccine comes up for approval on efficacy and safety, the manufacturer wants it fast-tracked and promoted as life saving by the government. What better way to do that than have your former employee take over a valuable new role at the CDC. Or vice-versa, reward a former high-ranking CDC employee, who comes with the full knowledge and connections of the CDC, with a high ranking position at your manufacturing company. That is exactly what’s at play in the vaccine industry. It’s business as usual merging big government with big business.

CBS reported on the conflicts of interest in the vaccine industry and found that the vaccine industry give millions to the Academy of Paediatrics for conferences, grants and medical education classes. Wyeth, the manufacturer of the pneumococcal vaccine gave the Academy $342,000 for a community grant program. Vaccine manufacturer Merck gave the Academy of Paediatrics $433,000 the same year the academy endorsed Merck’s HPV vaccine.

Vaccine industry insider

Professor of Paediatrics and director of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Dr Paul Offit is the inventor of RotaTeq, which is now recommended for children worldwide. He holds the patent on the vaccine that he co-invented. Considered a ‘vaccine industry insider’ Offit is well-known for saying that ‘babies can theoretically tolerate 10,000 vaccines at once’.

Now there’s another rotavirus waiting in the wings. This time it’s a vaccine to be given to babies shortly after birth. Babies are already given the hepatitis B at birth. Do we really have any right to subject newborns to another vaccine?

In a world-first clinical trial the new rotavirus vaccine RV3-BB which was developed at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute – was given to hundreds of babies in Indonesia just days after being born. The trial was financially supported by among others Bill and Melinda Gates. The Gates’ enthusiasm for all matters vaccine is well-known. In Everything you need to know about Bill Gates, vaccine safety & his relationship with big pharma, Robert. F. Kennedy Junior has written:

In a widely cited 2014 blog post on the “miracle of vaccines,” Gates expressed enthusiasm about the “inspiring” data on vaccines and the “fantastic” and “phenomenal” progress being made to expand vaccine coverage.

However as Kennedy explains Gates neglects the history of infectious disease. Kennedy cites the example of scarlet fever for which there was no vaccine and which had become rare by the 1950s. Kennedy quotes U.S. mortality data from 1900–1973:

Medical measures [such as vaccines] contributed little to the overall decline in mortality in the United States since about 1900—having in many instances been introduced several decades after a marked decline had already set in.”

Vaccination is a barbarous practice and one of the most fatal of all the delusions current in our time. Conscientious objectors to vaccination should stand alone, if need be, against the whole world, in defense of their conviction. – Mahatma Gandhi

Irish Gardasil girl sues Merck and the state

Screen Shot 2018-01-01 at 12.05.35 PM
It is not surprising and indeed it is heartening to hear that a young woman from Ireland is suing Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE), the health minister, the education minister, the attorney-general and the state.

The woman who became ill after her Gardasil vaccination joins many other groups of women who are now suing the manufacturer of Gardasil and the state. There are six other cases over Gardasil before the Irish courts. A class action against the manufacturers of Gardasil began on August 4, 2017 on behalf of 700 Columbian women who in March 2014 were admitted to the hospital suffering new medical conditions following their HPV vaccination. And in Japan twenty-eight girls and women suffering side effects from cervical cancer vaccines that were recommended by the government are demanding compensation from the state.

In Australia to date there are over 4000 adverse events and one death from Gardasil reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration. We really need to ask what the TGA is doing about this situation? What will it take for our health watchdog to take action?

As the Australian school year begins it’s time to think about vaccines, especially if you are a parent of a young teenager. From this year, Gardasil 9, the latest human papilloma virus vaccine will be given to all Australian 12 and 13-year-old students. But what do you know about this vaccine? Before you sign the consent form which in no way informs you or your child, please do some research and then decide what is right for your situation.

Gardasil 9 was approved for use in Australia by the TGA last year and is said to be protective against nine HPV types: 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58. This new vaccine supersedes the quadrivalent HPV vaccine – Gardasil, which has been given to girls and women since 2007 and to teenage boys from 2013.  For more on the possible adverse effects of this vaccine please read my article What parents should know about Gardasil 9 

And as you research this vaccine be ever mindful that there is no need for Gardasil 9. According to the VAERS reporting system this new HPV vaccine is already responsible for over 7000 adverse events. There is no need for Gardasil either, a very sore point for the women, girls and boys who have become so very ill after HPV vaccination that they cannot go to school or even look after themselves.

The reason this vaccine was hyped, developed and marketed was it was supposed to be a vaccine that would prevent cervical cancer. But there is no epidemic of this disease in western nations such as Australia. Cervical cancer is detected by Pap smears and to date this vaccine has not prevented a single case of the disease. As of this month there have been over 83,000 adverse effects after Gardasil vaccination recorded on the World Health Organisation’s website. These severe adverse effects are increasing; there is no letting up on the damage being done in the wake of this unnecessary vaccine. In June 2017 the amount of severe adverse events recorded on this WHO website was 73000. One has to seriously wonder why these vaccines are not stopped. What is the use of collating this long list of adverse events if there is to be no action.

When will we see a class action take place in Australia? Many girls still do not know where or how to report their vaccine damage. Here is the link where you can report your reaction. Of course many girls and their families do not even connect the vaccination with their newly developed disease so there is certain to be more damage which is not being recorded to the TGA.

What will it take to reverse this harmful and unnecessary vaccination program. Gardasil 9 is now part of the school vaccination program offered freely to all teenagers. We have to continue to spread the word about these HPV vaccines.

One thing is certain we are sure to see more court action as the injuries escalate.

We must stop the damage from GMOs and vaccines

Untitled-3Many anti-GMO activists are convinced there is a connection between glyphosate along with genetically engineered foods, and the increasing levels of autism in children. My research has led me to put the blame for autism and other developmental disorders at the feet of the vaccine industry but in reality I think that both the biotechnology and the vaccine industries are implicated in the exponential rates of these diseases and other adverse health events.

  Jeffrey Smith is the author of Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies about the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating, and Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives. In a presentation called The Real Truth about GMO’s he speaks about how the consumption of genetically modified foods are causing all sorts of health issues such as gut problems, brain fog, allergies, skin rashes, fatigue, asthma, and autism and that these conditions improve when eating GMO food ceases. In fact, thousands of US doctors are now prescribing GM free diets.The revolution is beginning.

However a few notes on how we have arrived at this point are in order.

Tragically, Monsanto, otherwise known as the “most evil corporation on Earth” with their dirty products such as Agent Orange and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s), is in charge of our food supply. This is a company which along with Archer Daniels Midland, Sodexo and Tyson Foods were responsible for  The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009: HR 875   which gave the corporate factory farms a virtual monopoly to police and control all foods grown anywhere, including one’s own backyard

The FDA declares that testing of these novel genetic modifications is not required before they are released. Monsanto merely needs to tell the FDA that their products are safe. That is all that is needed before they are sold, and then eaten by the public.

However many studies show very real problems in animals fed GM food. One of these independent studies found that buffalo, goats and sheep in India are dying after grazing on Bt cotton plants. Those who care for the animals are also getting sick with skin rashes and respiratory issues.

Jeffrey Smith describes the production of a genetically modified organism (GMO)

A bacterium such as Bacillus thuringiensis is used to create a corn plant that is able to produce its own toxic insecticide. The Bt toxin from the bacillus makes holes in the cell walls of insects to kill them. From there the gene from the bacterium is used to make millions of copies which are shot via a gene gun into millions of corn cells – with the hope that genes find their way into the DNA of some of the cells, which are then cloned, becoming Bt corn.

Massive damage is caused to the DNA of the plant by this process of insertion and cloning in that 2-4% of the DNA is changed. This is significant, for these changes may result in an increase or decrease in the amount of proteins in the plant. The changes may also mean that some genes are shut off or that silent genes are turned on.

But did the regulators and the biotech industry look for these changes before the GM corn went on the market? Incredibly and inexcusably they did not. With the GM corn already in the food supply an independent scientist found there were 43 proteins that had changed in the process of creating the corn. One gene that was previously silent had been switched on and was a known allergen, able to cause allergy or death in the susceptible consumer. There were also other proteins that during the process of cloning had changed shape.  According to Smith such changes are important and can cause no harm or can be lethal. And yet the regulators don’t believe this experimental stuff needs testing.

This is really alarming in that greater than 90% of all soybean, cotton and corn acreage in the U.S. is used to grow genetically engineered crops. Other approved novel foods include sugar beets, alfalfa, canola, papaya and summer squash.

Of this runaway technology Jeffrey Smith claims:

We are taking the products of this immature science causing massive damage to the most compactified level of nature – the DNA.

But in the eyes of Monsanto the ideal future looks like this:

One hundred per cent of all commercial seeds would be GM and patented.

As Jeffrey Smith has said:

They are planning to replace nature. This is a pivotal time.

The main reason for genetically engineering plants is to sell more herbicide. Yes, this gamble with the very basis of life is so our food can be sprayed with poison.  Every year 2 billion kilograms of the water soluble carcinogen – Glyphosate is used worldwide. It’s in our air, in our rainfall, in the plants, our food and in our bodies.

Glyphosate binds with plant minerals so these nutrients are unavailable for the plant. In the process, plants are made deficient in nutrients and become weak and sick and so do the animals who eat the plants. We eat the crops and the sick animals and it’s no surprise that we too, fall ill. The reason it is such a successful herbicide is because it deprives the plants of nutrients and creating diseases in the soil around it.

As to how the consumption of Glyphosate affects humans…

Glyphosate blocks the shikimate pathway in our gut. The bacteria in our bodies use this important pathway to create L-Tryptophan, an essential amino acid that is so important to our well being. Mood and behaviour are improved when we switch to organic foods.

The currently accepted dogma is that glyphosate is not harmful to humans because the shikimate pathway is absent in all animals. However, this pathway is present in both human and mammal’s gut bacteria, which play a massively important and heretofore largely overlooked role in human physiology

Some actions we can take to remove our food supply from this corporate power:

  • Ensure that what we eat is natural
  • Grow our own food
  • Ask restaurants whether their food is GM. Menus are now gluten free so how about asking for a GM free menu.
  • Sharing information about GM foods and how to avoid them

And as we spread the word about GMO’s we must also protest the number of chemically laden vaccines our children now receive. In the US the number of vaccines given to children from birth to the age of 18 years is now 74 doses.

True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200 year mistake.

The rate of autism in the US is now 1 in 25. Of course autism isn’t the only adverse event that frequently occurs after vaccination. Chronic pain conditions, seizures, gastro-intestinal disorders, arthritis in its many forms, diabetes and infertility are among the huge and ever growing list of side effects.

SPN-Gardasil CoverA vaccine that has the highest number of adverse events of any vaccine is Gardasil the HPV vaccinethat is marketed as preventative against cervical cancer even though there is no proof that the vaccine has ever prevented a single case of cervical cancer in the world. Brian Hooker, father of a vaccine-damaged child speaking in Vaccines Revealed calls it:

A dirty vaccine…loaded with aluminium. Aluminium doesn’t belong in the human body.

But in spite of the fact that there are now over 81,000 recorded adverse events following the administration of Gardasil the manufacturers are trialling it on babies. This sadly is true. We urgently need to turn this around.

But not before a new cohort of 12-13 year-olds are injected with the latest HPV vaccine. Gardasil 9 has 5 more antigens and more than twice the amount of aluminium per shot than Gardasil.

From the start of this school year Australian teenagers will be injected with Gardasil 9 replacing the quadrivalent Gardasil.

Lack of safety studies on Gardasil 9

In 2014 the US FDA approved the use of Gardasil 9 for females ages 9 to 26 years and males ages 9 to 15 years for prevention of vulvar, vaginal, anal, and cervical cancers. Gardasil 9 is marketed as protective against nine HPV types: 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58.

Even though the vaccine is new, the approval by the FDA was completed without the usual review given by the VRBPAC (the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee). The committee is responsible for reviewing and evaluating the safety of vaccines and other health products.

letter to the FDA from Marion Gruber, Director of Office of Vaccines Research and Review CBER gives the reason for their decision:

 Our review of information submitted in your BLA (biologics license application) including the clinical study design and trial results, did not raise concerns or controversial issues which would have benefited from an advisory committee discussion.

But there is much evidence to suggest that this review needed to be done. Rather than use an inert placebo such as normal saline, Gardasil 9 was compared directly to the quadrivalent Gardasil in two of the studies. A comparison with Gardasil is hardly reassuring for there have been thousands of adverse events and hundreds of deaths  following its administration.

These are 2 very different vaccines. Gardasil 9 has 5 more antigens than the quadrivalent Gardasil. Also in Gardasil 9 the HPV antigens 6, 16, and 18 have been increased.

Gardasil                                   Gardasil 9

How do the changes to the number and strength of the antigens affect the recipients of this new vaccine?

Increased amounts of the aluminium adjuvent

Gardasil 9 contains 500 mcg of aluminium per dose. This is more than double the amount of aluminium contained in a dose of Gardasil which has 225 mcg.  It is alarming that this huge amount of aluminium is to be injected into young bodies. This is because 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.

Disturbingly the aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. Gardasil and Gardasil 9 contain amorphous aluminium hydroxyphosphate sulphate (AAHS) a new form of aluminium which causes the immune system to become 104 times more powerfully stimulated than would occur naturally. It is important to be aware that this HPV vaccination program continues despite the fact that there is no scientific proof that the vaccines have ever prevented a single case of cervical cancer. And the adverse events continue to increase after administration of the HPV vaccines.

In FDA approved Gardasil 9: Malfeasance or Stupidity?  researcher Norma Erickson has examined the Gardasil 9 package insert where she found that the rate of serious adverse events in the trials of Gardasil 9 was 2.3 %. This means that for every 100,000 people who are given Gardasil 9 there will be 2300 serious adverse events and yet the cervical cancer rate in the US is around 7 women per 100,000. Talk about insanity!

And that’s not all she found when she examined the insert package. During the trials 2.4% of the recipients developed an autoimmune disorder which means that 2400 people could now be suffering from new diseases just because they had this new Gardasil 9.

And there’s more to be learnt about the development of autoimmunity. Norma Erickson explains the process of molecular mimicry as it applies to Gardasil in a presentation Humphries/Erickson – What Biologically Plausible Mechanisms of Action are Health Agencies Ignoring? Within the many proteins found in our bodies there are 82 peptides. One of the antigens in Gardasil, the HPV 16 LI protein, almost identically matches 34 of these peptides. The importance of this information is as Erickson explains:

It is extremely possible that when you develop an antibody to the HPV 16 protein you are also developing an antibody reaction to your own system in multiple locations. The number of viral matches and locations makes the occurrence of autoimmune cross reactions in the human body following HPV 16 vaccination almost unavoidable.

We need to keep protesting the under-reported tragedy that is the theory and practice of vaccination. Our recent ancestors managed to live healthy lives without genetically engineering their food supply and over vaccinating their children.

Let’s turn this around.

India says no to HPV vaccines

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 1.27.53 PM   The Indian Express reports that the Indian government has decided not to introduce a cervical cancer vaccine into the universal immunisation programme. This decision has been made despite the fact that India has an unacceptably high death rate from cervical cancer.

Opposition to the vaccination programme came from Ashwani Mahajan, the national co – convener of the Swadeshi Jagran Manch who explained the party’s stance in a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi:

It is our concern that this programme will divert scarce resources from more worthwhile health initiatives diverting it to this vaccine of doubtful utility and that its adverse effects will erode confidence in the national immunisation programme and thereby expose children unnecessarily to the risk of more serious vaccine-preventable disease.

Although the decision not to include the HPV vaccination in the universal immunisation programme is not final it won’t be happening in the near future. In India the vaccine is available in the private sector and can be given if there is demand on behalf of the woman and her doctor sees a need.

Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among Indian women accounting for an astounding 67,000 deaths a year. Many developing nations such as India have no organised screening programs, with Pap smear testing only available to a small population of mainly urban women. I would hope that the RSS wing Swadeshi Jagran Manch which has argued successfully against the HPV vaccine will now press for improved health care with Pap smears programs instituted throughout India for clearly 67,000 deaths a year from cervical cancer is shocking. Contrast this with the situation in Australia where this particular cancer is a long way down the list of common female cancers – in fact it is rated the 18th most common cancer in Australian women. Clearly socio economic conditions in India need to improve in order to address this alarming death rate. Risk factors for this disease include living in poverty, dietary deficiencies, smoking and multiparity ( having given birth to more than one child).

India is no stranger to the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. In 2009 an unethical vaccine trial took place involving thousands of young girls. The trial was called a ‘demonstration project’ and run by the Indian unit of the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH). However the project was in reality, a Phase IV, post marketing, clinical trial.

It involved the vaccination of about 30,000 girls, aged between10–14 years. The vaccines used were Gardasil and Cervarix. Women’s health groups alarmed at the trials and rightly concerned that the HPV vaccines had not been tested for safety and efficacy in the Indian population where adolescent girls are often malnourished conducted their own investigation and found that the young girls selected for the trial — many of them poor tribal girls — came from communities lacking the necessary health infrastructure such as Pap smear facilities and gynaecologists.

These young adolescent girls had put their faith in the government, naively trusting it to do the right thing — in this case providing them with an expensive vaccine free of cost, to prevent cervical cancer. However, there was no informed consent process; they were not told that they were part of a clinical trial and that they had the right to refuse participation. In the rare cases where consent forms were used, there was no information regarding compensation, or about possible alternative treatments or risk management.

The girls were also not informed that one of the possible and significant side effects of the vaccine might be infertility. Notwithstanding the fact that at least four girls died in Andhra Pradesh and two in Gujarat and that many girls went on to suffer severe side effects (including anaphylactic shock, seizures and paralysis, motor neurone disease, and disorders of the immune system), there was no follow-up monitoring by PATH. The deaths were attributed to other causes such as malaria or suicide.

In April 2010, the Indian Council of Medical Research told the governments of Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to immediately suspend the cervical cancer control vaccination program for girls. In the same year, due largely to the insistence of the activists, the Indian Government held an inquiry into the study which found that many violations had taken place which included a lack of informed consent, and inadequate health facilities for dealing with adverse events and medical emergencies. A further finding in April 2013 by a committee appointed by India’s parliament accused PATH of violating clinical-testing norms:

Its [PATH’s] sole aim has been to promote the commercial interests of HPV vaccine manufacturers who would have reaped windfall profits had PATH been successful in getting the HPV vaccine in the Universal Immunization Program of the country.

All of this is of course cold comfort to the parents of 13-year old Sarita Kudumula who only learnt that their daughter had taken part in a medical trial after she collapsed and died a few days after her Gardasil injection. Girls from tribal communities such as Sarita are obliged to attend government schools located away from their communities which increases their vulnerability to exploitative drug trials.

SPN-Gardasil Cover

You can read more about these unethical trials in Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed

According to a 2015 article in the International Journal of Women’s Health,

Every year in India, 122,844 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 67,477 die from the disease. India has a population of 432.2 million women aged 15 years and older who are at risk of developing cancer. It is the second most common cancer in women aged 15-44 years. India also has the highest age standardised incidence of cervical cancer in South Asia at 22, compared to 19.2 in Bangladesh, 13 in Sri Lanka, and 2.8 in Iran.

In light of these alarming statistics so much more needs to be done to alleviate this huge disease burden. The answer will not be found in HPV vaccines but in changes to the poor socio – economic conditions endured by women at risk of cervical cancer.

Why are we so afraid of viruses and bacteria?

 

In Sacrificial Virgins: Part 1 – Not for the greater good Professor Peter Duesberg claims that if HPV is found in cervical cancer tumours it is just a fossil of a previous HPV infection. According to the Berkeley University Molecular Biologist there is no causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and cervical cancer.

But then we have this entire HPV vaccination program based on the idea that this wart virus causes causes cervical cancer and so we need to vaccinate the whole teenage population against it. It is time that we acknowledge that what is claimed to be a cancer-causing virus may only be a fossil or a passenger virus and therefore not cause any problem at all.

high resIn my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I cite the revolutionary work of Janine Roberts in my effort to make sense of the fear that has led to the vaccination of teenagers with Gardasil in order to prevent infection from the human papilloma virus.

We all have been taught to greatly fear viruses — and yet scientists are now discovering that they are fundamental parts of life, made by the millions by all healthy cells.
— Dr Roberto A. Giraldo, physician and specialist
in internal medicine, infectious and tropical diseases

In Fear of the Invisible: How Scared Should We Be of Viruses and Vaccines, HIV and Aids (2008), author and investigative journalist Janine Roberts suggests that rather than seeing viruses as harmful we need to see them for what they are:

  … we make them, shape them and live within a sea of them

  …viruses are made out to be enemies that must be attacked in order for pharmaceutical companies to be the beneficiaries of a multibillion dollar ‘war on terror’

Western medicine needs an enemy. Cancer is one of our current enemies, a disease state that attracts around $US5 billion a year in research dollars resulting in expensive miracle drugs that delay the inevitable death — often weeks, perhaps months, rarely years.

In the story about cervical cancer and current treatments it may be helpful to understand cancer as proposed by Michael Coleman from the Cancer Research UK Cancer Survival Group in his essay ‘War on cancer and the influence of the medical-industrial complex’, published in the Journal of Cancer Policy (Coleman, 2013). He describes

cancer as “a uniquely diverse constellation of diseases that stem from spontaneous or induced errors in the complex genetic systems that have evolved over millions of years to regulate the reproduction of our own cells”

He also tackles the use of the ‘metaphor of war’

Waging war  against a disease that is so intrinsic to our cellular biology is even more quixotic than declaring a war on terror, drugs or religion. War is more than just a metaphor. It distorts political thinking about cancer with the illusory clarity of victory and defeat.

Whether we are talking about cancer or infectious disease it is time to put this ‘war’ approach to rest and adopt an holistic understanding of life, health, disease and death.

We have been educated to fear these minute cellular particles; our media campaigns are designed to focus on them rather than on the real enemy – the toxins or the lack of nutrients that detract from a state of wellness. By the middle of the 20th century the rate of infectious diseases was in decline in the wake of improved living conditions but death from cancer rose. The fearful public wanted answers, they wanted to know the cause. Most of all they wanted a cure. The nature of cancer was puzzling, and microbiologists began to look for cancer causing germs. A connection between organisms such as bacteria or fungi and cancer could not be established, but that was not the end of the matter. The task of finding the cause of cancer shifted to virologists who, aided by increasingly sophisticated technologies, took up the cudgel — this time searching for hypothetical cancer-causing viruses.

By the 1970s, Harald zur Hausen had begun exploring the idea that the human papilloma virus could be the cause of cervical cancer. In the early 1980s, the German virologist found the human papilloma virus, HPV type 16, in approximately 50% of cervical tumours and HPV type 18 in approximately 20% of cervical tumours.

HPV might be present in cervical tumours but the real question is whether it causes any harm. Chances are it is merely a passenger virus as claimed by Professor Peter Duesberg in Sacrificial Virgins.

If so we have been vaccinating girls and boys for a disease not caused by a virus with the vaccine that is associated with thousands of unnecessary adverse events and ill health for many recipients.

Parents and their daughters have been influenced by a huge marketing campaign waged by Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, and the mainstream media. In 2006 the message was intense with scarcely a day passing without a cervical cancer story accompanied by the promotion of an auspicious, imminent vaccine. This message reached an uninformed public, most of whom had never heard of this virus but were now anxiously waiting for a vaccine to become available as quickly as possible. Sadly so many of these parents and children are left regretting the decision they made to vaccinate, and struggle to deal with day to day real health issues.

Turning this obedience to the whims of the pharmaceutical companies around will take a radical shift in how we understand disease. The culprit won’t be studied in a test tube, cultured in the laboratory, or lend itself to a marketable product.

Western medicine has neglected the whole person focussing on the different parts of our bodies, such as our livers, our heart, and our brains. New technologies have flourished and most importantly death is deferred. Over the years many have warned of the growing dilemma as they saw it. The problem of leaving health care in the hands of the professional elite. Radical Philosopher Ivan Illich wrote

By transforming pain, illness, and death from a personal challenge into a technical problem, medical practice expropriates the potential of people to deal with their human condition in an autonomous way and becomes the source of a new kind of un-health.

It is time to seek an alternative view on sickness and health this time from Ben Court, the family osteopath:

In naturopathic terms, any event that the body uses to steer itself back to a homeostatic balance, is termed a “healing crisis”, i.e. its purpose is a positive move towards health not away from it, no matter how unappealing the actions taken by the body might be.

Rather than regarding a cold or a bout of the flu as a disease we should instead see this challenge as a detoxification process by the body.

With this in mind how do we understand childhood infectious disease? Possibly the same way I would suggest and that rather than fearing the childhood bouts of measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox we revert to regarding these illnesses as symptoms of an unwell body and focus on the cause. It is known that measles is connected with a vitamin A deficiency. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends vitamin A for children with measles in areas where vitamin A deficiency may be present. In knowing this connection we would be far better off ensuring that all children have adequate levels of vitamin A rather than the measles vaccine.

Infectious diseases were in decline before the advent of vaccination programs.

This graph shows that in England and Wales the annual death rate of children (under age 15) from measles declined from over 1,100 per million in the mid-nineteenth century, to a level of virtually 0, by the mid 1960s

Screen Shot 2017-12-27 at 4.30.40 PM

Looking at the whole person and understanding the reasons that the body is out of balance is far superior to the system that regards vaccination as the answer to infectious disease and more.

In the words of Barbara Loe Fisher Co-founder & President National Vaccine Information Center

Instead of epidemics of measles and polio, we have epidemics of chronic autoimmune and neurological disease: In the last 20 years rates of asthma and attention-deficit disorder have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled, chronic arthritis now affects nearly one in five Americans and autism has increased by 300 percent or more in many states.

Time to put this irrational belief system that viruses are harmful to bed and work with nature.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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