Remember we are not ‘pro-choice’ we are ‘anti-vaccine’ – Dr Heather Wolfson
One of the very severe conditions occurring in young teenagers following their human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination is POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
On any given day they may experience the following symptoms:
- Orthostatic Intolerance (lightheadedness, dizziness)
- Chest pain
- Gastrointestinal cramps
- Inability to focus and concentrate for long periods
- Inability to read due to blurred vision
- Difficulty with recall
- Extreme fatigue
- Exercise Intolerance
- Appetite Disturbance
Because of the effect on blood pressure, people who suffer from POTS may not be able to stay seated for long intervals or stand for a long period of time, as this will affect their circulation. They will not be able to maintain that posture without feeling dizzy, lightheaded, and may even faint.
POTS is a form of dysautonomia
Dysautonomia refers to a disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)–the main bodily system that controls organ function and involuntary actions of the body.
During her 12 year-old health check Nina was given her first shot of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. Two months later Nina’s hair began to fall out and shortly after began to complain of flu-like symptoms. Her episodes of fatigue and nausea became more regular and as her very concerned mother recalled:
She was becoming ill at all times of the day. She would sleep on the bathroom floor hoping not to vomit one more time. I made repeated visits to the pediatrician’s office and pleaded with them to help our child. Thoughts were running through my head as to why she became ill so suddenly. Then I remembered my mother’s intuition moment and realized our world began to change after the Gardasil vaccine. The pediatrician was in agreement that we would not proceed with the second dose of the vaccine due to Nina’s illness.
Nina was eventually diagnosed with dysautonomia by Dr. Hassan Abdallah at The Children’s Heart Institute in Reston, Virginia.
Nina’s experience post Gardasil vaccination is not unusual
Lucija Tomljenovic et al studied a 14-year-old previously healthy girl who presented with flu-like symptoms, sore throat, low-grade fever, fatigue, swollen glands, and intense headaches in February 2009, approximately 2 months after her second quadrivalent HPV vaccine injection. They report that the 14-year-old suffered such debilitating symptoms such as
persistent headaches, dizziness, recurrent syncope, poor motor coordination, weakness, fatigue, myalgias, numbness, tachycardia, dyspnea, visual disturbances, phonophobia, cognitive impairment, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
The researchers state that this case clearly fulfilled the criteria for POTS/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) secondary to the quadrivalent HPV vaccine booster injection and that this is the seventh case of POTS associated with the qHPV vaccine Gardasil reported in the literature.
They also report that the highest number of both POTS- and CFS-related symptom reports was associated with HPV vaccines when compared with 2 other vaccines (Menactra and Varivax).
Dr Bill Anderson treats people with dysautonomia. He states that it is common to find this condition in those patients who became injured after HPV vaccines. He explains that any significant brain injury can affect our vital autonomic nervous system.
Many of the girls and boys who have become ill after Gardasil have clearly suffered brain injuries. This was described in a 2012 research article Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental by Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw.
The researchers examined brain tissue from two women who tragically died after vaccination with Gardasil. Their tests revealed an autoimmune vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) brought on by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of blood vessels. The researchers claim that their finding of HPV-16L1 particles in cerebral blood vessels and adhering to the walls of these vessels clearly shows that “vaccine derived immune complexes are capable of penetrating the blood brain barrier”.
Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, digestion, salivation, perspiration, pupil dilation/constriction, and other functions. The ANS consists of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
This condition is serious and its connection with Gardasil is acknowledged by Bill Anderson. He states that Gardasil injured girls often end up with POTS and its associated symptoms caused by the increase in sympathetic drive which results in increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure and collapse, and inability to digest food.
This research into POTS and dysautonomia is important and adds to our understanding of the pathophysiology at play in the increasing numbers of sick girls and boys after Gardasil. Many of the these very ill teenagers are told they are mentally ill – ‘that it is all in their head’. They are frequently told to ‘just get on with it’. But without proper diagnosis they cannot ‘get on with it’ and even then treatment is difficult, costly and long-term.
The HPV vaccines, Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix are dangerous vaccines and must be taken off the market. There is no proof that HPV causes cervical cancer.
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.
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 Professor 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.
You can read about the history of how this flawed vaccine was brought to the market in Gardasil: Fast-tracked and Flawed
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.
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.
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.
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
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).
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.
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.
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
Two young Irish girls protesting against Gardasil a few days ago suffered seizures and needed hospital care, while inside the nearby Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, Professor Ian Frazer the co-developer of the vaccine was giving a speech and spruiking the ‘success’ of the Australian HPV vaccination program. Continue reading
A billboard displaying the question Do you know what’s in a vaccine? has been taken down. The Perth billboard went up on June 13 and a few days later was vandalised and removed.
But in the interim what wonderful publicity even though the cowardly press never asked the question asked on the billboard of the various health officials or politicians who were interviewed.
Incredible really that the journalists didn’t address the question but allowed AMA representative Dr Mark Duncan-Smith to have his say:
I think the billboard is fundamentally disgusting. This isn’t a debate about freedom of speech. This is a debate about vaccination and ant-vaccination…it is effectively a form of child abuse
If the powerless media won’t address the problem then it is up to us to continue to educate the public.
What is wrong with our media? Why is there censorship around the issue of vaccination. The number of vaccines has increased from three vaccines in 1960 to 52 doses of at least 22 vaccines in 2018. This is a good reason to have a debate. Why are our children given so many vaccine doses?
The US Vaccine Injury Compensation Scheme has paid out over $4 billion to vaccine victims and vaccines are described by the US government as being “unavoidably unsafe”. This statistic is believed to represent only 10% of those that are injured by vaccines.
According to the World Health Organisation’s database of adverse events Vigibase, there have been over 82,000 recorded adverse events following Gardasil.
The public needs to know these facts but the media is not doing its job; journalists are being censored. Even if they had doubts about the vaccination issue they would be persuaded from airing them.
I remember listening to a talk back radio program on our local ABC radio about the flu vaccine. First we heard the health officials spruiking the vaccine and then it was over to the listeners to have their say. And sure enough when a very articulate caller began revealing the many problems with the vaccine he was cut off. This was the ABC not commercial radio.
According to honorary professor in the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry at the University of Wollongong, Sharon Beder:
Journalists are free to write what they like if they produce well-written stories ‘free of any politically discordant tones’, that is, if what they write fits the ideology of those above them in the hierarchy. A story that supports the status quo is generally considered to be neutral and its objectivity is not questioned, while one that challenges the status quo tends to be perceived as having a ‘point of view’ and therefore biased.
Stephen Tunley is a Director of SaneVax Inc who when I put this conundrum to him replied:
Fact is that with a regulator (TGA) wholly funded by those it administers, with a Government in the thrall of big corporations, with media under the thrall of the political interests of its owners, with Universities and teaching hospitals reliant on funding from Pharma the issues do not get an airtime
The conference will look at science and accountability in the vaccination industry. This includes the urgent need for an adequate active vaccine adverse events surveillance system to be put in place in Australia. The conference will also focus on the need for conflicts of interest with pharmaceutical companies to be made transparent at ALL levels of the current vaccination system in Australia.
A 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
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.
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.
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.
Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed is available from Spinifex Press
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.
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. A 1988 update of a study that had been going on in Britain for the last 20 years links the pill with cervical cancer. The incidence of cervical cancer in women who had taken the pill for more than ten years was four times greater than for women who had not. The overall incidence of cancer of the cervix was increased in women who had used the pill.
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.
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.
In Natural Immunity and Vaccination, Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D states that the measles vaccine has probably eradicated much of the wild measles infection. Then she asks: But is this a good thing?
Answering her own question with a firm ‘no’ she explains that in eradicating the wild measles infection we are also putting an end to something else, something precious and this is maternal immunity. Dr Tetyana adds that we are actually eliminating this amazing maternal immunity even faster than the measles virus.
In past generations most of us had childhood infections such as measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox. We encountered these viruses during our childhood and had acquired natural and lifelong immunity before child-bearing age. This is vital for during pregnancy mothers can pass on this immunity via the placenta and through breastfeeding. Such immunity lasts 6 months after the birth of the infant continuing and extended by length of breastfeeding. Because of this amazing maternal immunity now being eliminated through the mass use of vaccines, it was very rare for an infant to develop measles infection.
In 1990s there was a measles outbreak in USA where it was observed that some young infants developed measles and some didn’t. The infants who didn’t get measles were the babies of mothers who were born before 1963 (date when measles vaccine was introduced in the U.S) and the infants who developed measles were born to younger mothers who were more likely to have been vaccinated. The reason that the babies didn’t develop measles during the outbreak would be due to maternal immunity which was not available to the babies born to younger and vaccinated mothers.
Sadly in the same way as we are eliminating maternal immunity to measles we are on the way to eradicating maternal protection from common childhood infections such as mumps, rubella and chicken pox. (The vaccines for these being introduced at later dates). This is tragic for when there are outbreaks of mumps, rubella and chicken pox, young infants who in earlier times would have been covered by their mother’s immunity, will most likely be infected for young girls all over the world are now vaccinated.
‘Mass vaccination’, says Dr Tetyana, is resulting in a leaky herd immunity and this is because many of the vaccinated are called ‘low responders’ to the vaccine. We have ruined this natural immunity which was reinforced among adults when their offspring developed the childhood infections. How silly are we?
Tetyana Obukhanych discusses the choices available to us in relation to infectious disease control.
Public health model
This model promotes vaccines as the way to control infectious diseases. A better way is the adoption of the personal health model.
Personal Health Model
In this way we choose to leave the virus alone and keep our babies well so if they are infected it will be a very mild case of disease. This involves breastfeeding the infant and attention given to ensuring a nutritious diet. It also involves avoiding fever suppressing medicine such as paracetamol.
The immune system gradually matures during infancy. Critical early protection against many infectious diseases previously experienced by the mother is given by the passive IgG antibody transferred from the mother via the placenta and in milk.
The infant immune system is transitioning to deal with life. Breastfeeding provides this protection by way of a ‘surrogate immune system‘ that includes the secretion of proteins that exist in breast milk and have antibacterial functions such as secreted IgA and other protective substances such as oligosaccharides that bind with bad bacteria and eliminate them avoiding gut inflammation.
The gut flora is vital in keeping the infant well. Lactobacteria in the gut is promoted by breastfeeding – the presence of this bacteria regulates the junctions in the gut preventing leaky gut. Breastfeeding has been shown to be protective against diarrhoea and also common ear infections and meningitis. It also has a role in the prevention of chronic diseases.
Everything to be gained by breastfeeding, nothing to lose
As the child grows, attention must be given to nutrition and the importance of vitamins such as A and D. When infection strikes, macrophages pick up the virus and replicate it. They then secrete interferon which sends signals to cells to fight the infection. However the function of interferon depends on adequate levels of vitamin A. In countries such as Africa where diets are deficient in vitamin A, measles is deadly, so supplementation of children with vitamin A is given.
Vitamin D is also vital for good health in that it activates some of the cells of the immune system and causes the secretion of substances such as antimicrobial peptides which helps with fighting infections. It is especially effective in fighting influenza. This explains why flu is more virulent in the winter when our vitamin D levels are low. Dietary supplementation with foods high in vitamin D is essential for immunity. Cod liver oil has sustained populations for many generations. See: Weston A. Price Foundation for more information about Vitamin D rich foods.
We have wonderful bodies which are designed to heal. There is no need for vaccines. We can build our immune systems and make ourselves and our children strong.
What are pregnant women to do?
Among the advice given to expectant mothers is to avoid alcohol, limit fish intake, and choose wisely when consuming cheese. So I am both astonished and saddened that young mothers-to-be are now advised to be vaccinated.
The Australian Government recently announced it will provide the whooping-cough (pertussis) vaccine free to every pregnant woman in the country. The measure was included in the 2018 budget at a cost of $39.5 million ensuring that the vaccine becomes part of Australian National Immunisation Program.
The DTPa vaccine is used to provide protection against three diseases, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping-cough) and is given to children at 2, 4 and 6 months followed by another dose at 18 months and yet another at 4 years. At 10-15 years another dose is given as part of the school vaccination program. Now it is recommended for all pregnant women, ideally at 28 weeks, during their third trimester.
Pertussis or whooping-cough, is a respiratory disease caused by the Bordetella (B) pertussis bacterium.
Australia is currently experiencing extremely high levels of reported whooping-cough. This situation has continued for a decade and has, at times, seen the reported rate of whooping cough reach levels similar to those recorded prior to mass vaccination in 1953, and has culminated in nearly 40,000 cases reported in 2011. Ironically, this increased level of reported illness has occurred during the same period that vaccination for the disease has increased substantially.
In 1922, there were 107,473 pertussis cases reported in the U.S. with 5,099 deaths. Mortality associated with pertussis declined dramatically in the 1940s as living conditions improved, including sanitation and hygiene and access to health care.
From the above graph it can be seen that by the time mass vaccination commenced in 1953 with the licensing of the first DTP vaccine, deaths from this disease had already declined by roughly 95%
1. Pertussis vaccines are not very effective. After an outbreak of whooping cough in highly vaccinated kindergarten children living in Elk Grove, California, concerned health officials suggested that the vaccine was only protective for three years at most.
2. The mass pertussis vaccination program may be causing more dangerous strains of pertussis to emerge resulting in more serious symptoms. There have been reports from around the world that there is a new more virulent strain which differs from that contained in the vaccine. Eighty-four percent of all reported pertussis cases in Australia are reportedly associated with the newer strain.
3. Animal studies have shown that although vaccinated baby baboons didn’t develop symptoms of pertussis when coming into contact with the pertussis bacteria, they still colonized B. pertussis in their throats and so could pass the infection onto others. The study’s lead author, Tod Merkel, explained that when someone is exposed to B. pertussis after recently getting vaccinated, they could be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others. “When you’re newly vaccinated, you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.”
4. According to Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) there have been 19,357 serious adverse events as of December 30, 2015 in connection with pertussis-containing vaccines since 1990 and most of these in children three years old and under. The deaths resulting from these adverse events of the vaccine amounted to 2,512, with 90% of deaths in children under three years old.
Australia uses GlaxoSmithKline’s Boostrix vaccine for adults. The contents of this vaccine are:
diphtheria toxoid, tetanus toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccine dTpa components adsorbed on 0.5mg aluminium and suspended in isotonic sodium chloride. It also contains formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 and glycine in residual amounts
Every dose of the DTPa (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine contains 500 micrograms of aluminium. Aluminium is a neurotoxin and this is injected into the bodies of very young children whose developing brains are extremely vulnerable. Five doses by the age of 5 results in a large amount of the heavy metal accumulating in these growing bodies especially when coupled with the aluminium received by way of other vaccines such as hepatitis B given from birth and again in childhood. This is all very serious and gets even more alarming as the pregnant women are also being coerced into having these aluminium containing vaccines.
Paediatrician Dr. Paul Thomas gives his advice to expectant mothers:
“The problem is that it is a humongous dose of aluminium you are injecting right into the pregnant mum. It is going to go right into the bloodstream where it has a half-life of over a week during which time it bathes that developing baby’s brain with a known neurotoxin. It’s insanity! I would absolutely under no circumstances do that to my unborn child.”
It is no surprise then that we are now hearing of an increase in fetal deaths in pregnant women who have been vaccinated against pertussis.
“I received the TDAP, against my instincts, March 17, 2015. My daughter was stillborn April 11, 2015 at 35 6/7 weeks. It is likely she was dead a few days before I found out on April 10, 2015. There was no known cause of death, and no flags or warning signs. We were a low risk pregnancy, with no abnormal prenatal clinical or lab findings”. – Chelsea Nichole Smith
Marcella Piper-Terry in her video Fetal Death Flu Shot & TDAP in Pregnancy discusses foetal demise (death in womb) from vaccines given in pregnancy. A whistleblower from an insurance billing company contacted her with documentation about what is happening in regard to these shots in pregnancy.
Stephanie was given the diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis vaccine on October 20, 2015 and on November 9, 2015, her baby died at 37 weeks gestation.
Sarah received her flu shot on October 15, 2015 and five days later her baby died. The death was recorded as intrauterine foetal demise.
Melissa received Boostrix which contains 500 micrograms of aluminium on January 8, 2015. On February 13, it was noted that there was a uterine size discrepancy – the baby was not growing normally. On March 30 the baby died.
Ally received TDAP on December 7, 2015 and on the very same day her 29 week foetus had a heart attack and died.
There are many more of these deaths and as Marcella Piper-Terry states, these are not coincidences. She blames the aluminium for these deaths.
We should not be giving pregnant women vaccines. It does not make any sense.
But the fear of one’s baby dying from a case of whooping-cough rages in Australia. But what are the chances of death from the disease?
In Australia in the years from 2006 to 2012 there were 10 deaths in babies under 6 months old, 2 deaths in 2014 and one in 2015. Babies under six months of age are most vulnerable to whooping-cough so the importance of breastfeeding in helping baby develop a stronger immune system in order to resist disease needs to be stressed.
We are mad to risk the health of expectant mothers and their babies by vaccination during pregnancy. Sure the disease is nasty but medical help and hospitalization is available to handle any respiratory distress. As parents and grandparents, we must realize that we cannot control nature. Best we can do is to work with it and not against it.
This week in Mutare, Zimbabwe, First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa launched the National Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme. The vaccine is to be given to over 800,000 girls between the ages of 10 to 14 in an attempt to alleviate the country’s growing cervical cancer rate. However in light of the fact that there is no proof that HPV vaccines have ever prevented a single case of the disease any decrease in the rate of the cancer from this provision alone will not take place.
The Herald refers to the benefit that this decision will bring to young girls and provides further details:
Beneficiaries will be vaccinated against cervical cancer between now and May next year
From my vast research on the subject of Gardasil and other HPV vaccines the only beneficiaries are likely to be the vaccine industry. To date there have been over 85,000 recorded adverse events following the administration of Gardasil. This is far from the correct number of events for many of the injured and their doctors are uninformed of the existence of vaccine adverse event databases such as Vaers or VigiBase .
These life-altering events include sudden collapse with unconsciousness within 24 hours seizures; muscle pain and weakness; disabling fatigue; Guillain-Barr Syndrome (GBS); facial paralysis; brain inflammation; rheumatoid arthritis; lupus; blood clots; optic neuritis; multiple sclerosis; strokes; heart and other problems, including death.
Zimbabwe does not need this vaccine. There is an estimated 2, 270 women diagnosed with cervical cancer in Zimbabwe annually with a mortality rate of 64 percent so yes something needs to be done to address the level of cancer and the lack of appropriate treatment facilities. But there are other and much safer ways to fix the problem.
However when there are organisations such as the GAVI Alliance, a multibillion-dollar public–private partnership that funds and delivers vaccines to developing countries, and which in 2013 introduced HPV vaccines in eight African countries with it’s aim to vaccinate 30 million girls in 40 nations by 2020 then any other way of looking at the problem is ignored.
The GAVI Alliance, based on partnership between the public and private sectors, was launched in 1999 to combat falling immunisation levels by providing vaccines to 74 of the world’s poorest countries. Dubbed the “billion dollar fund” after a contribution of $750m (£517m; 839m) from Microsoft’s founder and chief executive, Bill Gates, it seeks to achieve this by incorporating new vaccines into national health systems while promoting the existing immunisation program
Criticism of GAVI is not hard to find with Princeton University academic Donald Light reporting in The Guardian that
“I think the taxpayers of affluent countries and their leaders should support saving poor children and reducing global poverty but this is a moment when they could critically review how that money is being spent.” …”The Gavi model depends on giving more and more money year after year to get vaccines to poor countries in ways that are not self-sustaining and at prices that are unaffordable.”
Before the advent of HPV vaccines it was found that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were strongly implicated in the development of cervical cancer. It is well documented that tobacco smoking, having multiple children and the long-term use of hormonal contraceptives are associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer. When a woman stops taking hormonal contraceptives, the risk gradually declines.
Other factors that contribute to the cancer rate are the late presentation of disease, poor screening, and inadequate diagnosis and treatment facilities.
Knowing the risk factors and addressing them will help reduce the burden and mortality of cervical cancer along with the provision of Pap smear screening facilities and access to treatment for cervical lesions and cervical cancer.
Although there is government and public support for cervical cancer screening throughout the world, many countries lack well-funded, organised programs such as exist in the UK, Australia and other developed nations. From the 1960s to 1991, cervical cancer screening was available to women in Australia on an opportunistic basis in that the test was done on the request of the doctor or the woman herself. Then, in 1991, an organised program was set up which in 1995 became the National Cervical Screening Program. Such organised programs are more effective than those of an opportunistic nature because they specify a defined target population and include policies on method and interval of screening. Europe has few such organised programs with many countries relying on opportunistic screening. Screening in the USA and Canada varies from opportunistic to organised screening, and among the Latin American countries, Chile and Colombia boast national organised programs that have been operating for at least 15 years. Of all the countries in Africa, only South Africa has an official national cervical screening policy. Developing nations such as India have no organised screening program, with testing only available to a small population of mainly urban women. Since the Australian National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, the number of deaths from the disease have halved.
The rollout makes Zimbabwe the eighth African country to introduce the HPV vaccine into its routine immunisation programme. The others are Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa and Uganda. This is tragic!
