News, book launch and crackdown on free speech

I keep finding more information that I have not included in my book Gardsil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed.

I recently watched an hour – long interview with a New Zealand couple whose daughter had been injured post vaccination with Gardasil. Her mother had said no to the consent form sent home by the school but on the day of vaccination her daughter was bullied into it – made fearful by classmates and those giving the shots that she didn’t have it she would get cervical cancer and so submitted to the vaccine. The next morning she awoke with a blinding headache and from there her health went from bad to worse. It cost this family much in terms of heartache and money to obtain the help they needed to get their daughter well again. The medical system could do nothing – they could not or would not see the connection between the young girl’s condition that consisted of neurological problems and reproductive issues in that her periods had ceased and so the family sought homeopathy and naturopathic treatment. The treatment is expensive– there’s the testing involved, the detoxing and supplementation. This young girl was fortunate in that her parents were able to seek out and provide this treatment. There are so many who aren’t able to afford this and many who remain ignorant of what is wrong with them and that alternative treatment is available. The information is not in the mainstream where it should be.

In Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I have written that there are over 50,000 adverse reported events after vaccination and yet during this interview I heard about another larger database of adverse events called Vigibase. It’s a World Health Organisation database and they record the total as over 73000. This of course is still far from accurate as many people don’t know where or how to record their event. It is good that we know where to record these events but what is being done about the huge number of adverse events. Where is the inquiry into these events – surely the World Health Organisation should be insisting on an inquiry and cessation of this vaccination program?

Of this 73,000 adverse events there are some astounding totals

  • Blood and lymphatic system disorders (1718)
  • Cardiac disorders (1921)
  • Congenital, familial and genetic disorders (246)
  • Ear and labyrinth disorders (1356)
  • Endocrine disorders (284)
  • Eye disorders (4076)
  • Gastrointestinal disorders (13313)

  • Injury, poisoning and procedural complications (8507)
  • Investigations (11205)
  • Metabolism and nutrition disorders (1445)
  • Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders (12048)
  • Neoplasms benign, malignant and unspecified (incl cysts and polyps) (874)
  • Nervous system disorders (32911)
  • Pregnancy, puerperium and perinatal conditions (1153)
  • Product issues (58)
  • Psychiatric disorders (4080)
  • Renal and urinary disorders (942)
  • Reproductive system and breast disorders (2663)
  • Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders (4852)
  • Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders (12557)
  • Social circumstances (1342)
  • Surgical and medical procedures (1737)
  • Vascular disorders (4714)

In Australia 12-13 year old girls and boys are vaccinated with Gardasil as part of the school vaccination programs: Figures from 2014–15 reveal that nationally nearly 79% of girls aged 15 were fully immunised against HPV and 67% of boys. The uptake of Gardasil is much lower in the US where figures recorded for 2013 show that around 40% of girls and 35% of boys have received three doses. No surprise then that there is talk of mandatory vaccination with HPV vaccines in parts of the US. In a highly controversial, unprecedented motion, members of the Allegheny County Health Department in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have publicly revealed that they’re considering administering a countywide mandate to require all 7th grade girls and boys to receive the HPV vaccine before receiving admittance into school for the 2017–18 school year. This is very wrong and not only because they want to forcibly administer this vaccine but the HPV vaccine has been linked to more cases of death, disability and other serious side effects than can be traced to any other vaccine. And as noted in the book HPV vaccines are being associated with the very rare but serious condition of premature ovarian failure (POF), also known as premature menopause.” Surely there are enough problems with infertility already but no we’ll just cause a bit more – this time to teenagers – the future parents.

We need to spread the word about HPV vaccination before they mandate this one in Australia as they have done with the childhood shots linking them to family payments and entry to childcare. Imagine your teenagers not able to go to high school if they don’t get their HPV shots. HPV is not a communicable disease like measles. There is no need for this vaccine which was said to prevent Cervical Cancer and yet there is zero scientific proof that the vaccine has prevented a single case of Cervical cancer in any country. People are resisting all over the world – but very quiet in this country.

 In July 2016, 63 Japanese women and girls aged between 15 to 22 years sued the government and the drug makers for damages over health problems they suffered after they were vaccinated with the HPV vaccines Cervarix and Gardasil. The plaintiffs who had experienced a range of health problems starting after their HPV vaccines are seeking compensation of at least 15 million yen each. The women insist that the government provide expert medical help for their symptoms and that research for a cure happens. The women’s lawyers have stated: “the causal relationship will be acknowledged because the victims have common symptoms”. In the United States vaccine companies have immunity from prosecution. To understand how this happened, we have to turn the clock back to 1982. That is when four big drug companies (Merck, Wyeth, Lederle, Connaught) threatened to stop selling vaccines in America unless a law was passed giving them complete immunity from prosecution. So claims are submitted to the US national vaccine injury compensation program. The drug companies are not sued.

By March 20, 2013 Judicial Watch the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program had awarded $5,877,710 to 49 victims for harm resulting from the HPV vaccine and up to 2016 there were a total of 119 cases of damaged litigants compensated. There is no proof that this vaccine can prevent cervical cancer. It may result in more cases for there are reports of young women who have got cervical cancer after the vaccine. There are likely to be more cases of cervical cancer because there are changes to the successful Pap smear programs that are to start in December. Instead of the Pap smear test there is to be an HPV test. This of course predicated on the basis that HPV causes Cervical Cancer but there are many cases of Cervical cancer where the women are found to be HPV negative. So these cases of early cervical cancer may be missed.

At the launch of my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed my publishers and I were verbally attacked by two ardent pro-vaccinators one of whom was a virologist and the other an immunisation nurse. As well as being very disruptive and insulting they were dismissive of a woman in the audience who related the story of her two good friends who had suffered adverse effects from the Gardasil vaccine. The incident was surprising and begs many questions: Why were these two people there? What did they hope to achieve by their interruption and their attempts at disputing the facts presented in the book. Do they hope to shut this story down. Am I to be intimidated into silence?

Such ardent promoters of vaccination must be very worried that the  public is becoming aware that vaccines carry real risks. It is no surprise to read that Australian nurses and midwives who dare to speak out against the dangers of vaccinations on social media or in person will be prosecuted and that the Australian government is urging members of the public to report vaccine skeptics to the authorities.We are entering dangerous times when we cannot speak openly about medical procedures such as the Gardasil vaccination that can cause harm to some people.

 

 

 

 

Free speech – not on vaccination it seems!

A SOCIAL media campaign is in progress to stop an American anti-vaccination campaigner running a series of lectures in Australia in March. Following on from the success of a campaign which resulted in the cancellation of the misogynist Julien Blanc’s visa, pro-vaccination activists are calling on the immigration department to have Dr Sherri Tenpenny’s visa cancelled because she speaks about the harms associated with vaccines.

Screen shot 2015-01-11 at 11.44.26 AMDr Sherri Tenpenny has planned to deliver six seminars around Australia in March and to be joined by Norma Erickson who runs Sanevax an organisation which promotes only Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. A homoeopathic practitioner from Victoria, Isaac Golden, who promotes the use of natural medicines to prevent disease is also scheduled to speak at the seminars. Unfortunately the seminars are now in jeopardy as most of the venues where her presentations were to be held have cancelled.

Tenpenny, who runs an alternative medicines clinic in Ohio, has written a book called Saying No To Vaccines and regularly lectures on the dangers of immunisation. Tenpenny says that she wrote her book because parents needed a tool that did their homework for them. She says that the evidence is there to support their decision to not vaccinate; you just have to do a little work to find it. ‘Everyone seems to be so afraid of “bugs” and their potential ability to make us sick. But the reality is that we swim in “bugs” every day and we are not dropping over like flies.. The only “bugs” we seem to obsess over are associated with vaccines. Only two generations ago, measles, mumps and chickenpox were normal experiences of childhood. Why we have complete fear of these infections is media and money driven and unfounded.’

And the Australian mainstream media perpetuates this fear and supports the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture the vaccines when it fails to support Dr Tenpenny’s tour.  Her ideas are so sensible:

If the focus of Public Health was on sleep, exercise, clean water and safe, non-GMO food, we would have a healthy society without vaccines but we would not have billion dollar industries employing millions of people to keep us “healthy.” The fact is, we are a very UNhealthy society with vaccines, so the Public health and argument that we must vaccinate ‘for greater good’ is a failure.

Our hospitals are full of unhealthy adults and children despite all the vaccines, antibiotics and other medical interventions. Many people are living longer yet more debilitated lives, needing expensive medical management. Sherri Tenpenny and her fellow speakers just might be able to teach us how to live healthier lives and they should be given their right to speak.

 

A new HPV vaccine is approved amid global concerns over Gardasil

Overdosing on cleanliness

Screen shot 2014-06-16 at 6.26.30 PM

It seems that we have taken the proverb, ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’ , far too literally and that it’s going to take pig faeces to save us.

Yesterday I heard the news that there may be welcome relief for people suffering from auto immune diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and autism. The hope for sufferers comes from Coronado Biosciences Inc which is developing a drug which contains thousands of microscopic parasite eggs, obtained from pig faeces, and suspended in a tablespoon of saline solution to be taken orally.

In a pig, the eggs would grow into mature whipworms and reproduce, without harming their host. In humans, the same eggs barely survive two weeks. Yet in that short period they appear to modulate a patient’s immune system and prevent it from attacking the body’s own tissues and organs.

Studies have shown that there are higher rates of autoimmune disease in the developed world, and particularly among upper-income groups. This is thought to be connected with what is known as the hygiene hypothesis. Sadly, people in developed nations have largely lost touch with the natural world and with more of us living in cities and high-rise apartments we have little contact with dirt. When we come into contact with dirt, millions of organisms, including viruses, bacteria and worms, enter the body. Researchers believe many of these organisms are needed to train the body’s immune system to recognize and fight disease. So if we don’t get dirty we don’t give our immune systems a chance to develop. Unfortunately, living in a less than spotless environment is generally frowned upon and the over use of  antibacterial soaps, detergents and sanitizing gels grows. It is so distressing to watch these products being advertised on our TV screens and it’s little wonder that children think this is normal.

Then to add insult to injury is the ever-growing list of vaccines given to the very young, workers and the elderly. Children’s immune systems are suffering from lack of exposure to the natural world along with the endless bombardment of vaccines leaving their immature immune systems with little challenge to develop. Where once a young child’s immunity was challenged by common diseases such as measles, mumps and chicken pox, the use of vaccines has largely eliminated these along with the chance to develop natural immunity.

That humans with autoimmune diseases face the prospect of swallowing a drug which consists of thousands of microscopic parasite eggs, culled from pig faeces, suspended in a tablespoon of saline solution is not a good solution. Not because of the yuck factor but because the situation has arisen in the first place and there appears to be little chance of reversing the process. As the  family block shrinks there’s less need or occasion to place our hands in the health-inducing soil. Once again it’s a technological fix set to reap rewards for its developers when there is just no willingness to prevent the problem. We need to encourage children outside and playing in the dirt, playing with animals, and we need to throw out the sanitizing gels and detergents.

With 700,000 Americans suffering from Crohn’s disease, 1.3 million Americans afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis and as many as 7.5 million suffering from psoriasis, sales of autoimmune disease drugs are expected to grow in the mid-single-digit percentages through 2016, from $34 billion in 2010, according to market research firm BCC Research.

 

 

Why the recommended HPV test is not good for women

 

Screen shot 2014-05-02 at 8.17.43 PMThe Medical Services Advisory Committee has recommended a new test for human papillomavirus, or HPV, to replace Pap smears from 2016. Women would have their first screening for cervical cancer at 25 and would be tested only every five years. (more…)

Viruses – how afraid should we be?

As I began to write about the marketing of the HPV vaccine Gardasil, I remembered that I had a book on my shelves called Fear of the Invisible written by Janine Roberts in which she asks if we should be afraid of viruses and vaccines. (more…)

It’s steady as she goes for vaccination
