Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed on Blog Talk Radio

 

Sharry Edwards is the pioneer in the study of Human BioAcoustic Biology. Her 30 years of research is being used at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, OH.

Sharry Edwards interviewed Helen Lobato on Blog Talk Radio

 

In Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed, Helen Lobato argues that we do not know whether HPV vaccines will decrease the incidence of cervical cancer. What is emerging, however, is evidence of their harmful effects. In 2006, the experimental HPV vaccination program began and there have been at least 315 associated deaths and more than 50,000 adverse events following HPV vaccination.

Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA, a process usually reserved for life-threatening diseases to fill an unmet and urgent medical need. Improved living conditions had already reduced the incidence of cervical cancer significantly in Western countries. So why is the HPV vaccine so heavily promoted in Australia, a country with one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world?

 

Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed documents the early history of cervical cancer and tracks its progression from a disease of obscurity to one of mainstream prominence. It includes the stories of vaccinated girls and boys who remain ill after receiving a vaccine purported to prevent a disease they were most unlikely to get. It records the voices of dissenters and resisters who call for an inquiry into HPV vaccines approved for use after a relentless propaganda campaign promoting a vaccine against a virus that many had never heard of.

This in-depth investigation exposes cracks in the pharmaceutical industry and highlights the problems that arise when government regulators and corporate interests are prioritized ahead of patient safety, independent science, and common sense.

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

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.

What’s up with Gardasil?

SPN-Gardasil Cover

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sacrificial Virgins: Part 1 – Not for the greater good

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is a tragedy.

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

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

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

Gardasil 9 2.3%

                                          Gardasil

                   2.5%

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

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 2.29.06 PM

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

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

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

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

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

It is surely time for the truth to come out.

New DVD shines light on toxic aluminium adjuvants

Injecting Aluminium  a new documentary by French journalist Marie-Ange Poyet, investigates the history of aluminum in vaccines and its potentially devastating effects on the human body.

SYNOPSIS: In the early 90s, a mysterious muscular disease with symptoms that included severe muscle and joint pain began to surface among multiple patients in France. A team of doctors in Paris discovered that these patients had developed a new disease called Macrophagic Myofascitis, or MMF, which occurs when the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant from a vaccine remains embedded in the muscle  tissue.

It is great to see such important documentaries being made and distributed. My interest in injectable aluminium began when I started to research the story of cervical cancer and the development of the HPV vaccines. This HPV vaccination program has never been shown to prevent a single case of cervical cancer yet it continues to be rolled out to teenagers all over the world and is associated with thousands of adverse events and hundreds of deaths. The full extent of the current damage is not known as few adverse effects are reported.  There are 225 mcgs of Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate per shot of Gardasil with the recommendation being 3 doses. Both Gardasil and Cervarix use the newer aluminium adjuvants which cause a stronger immune response than other such adjuvants. It is important to have an understanding of how aluminium affects the human body in order to understand the considerable health carnage that follows the administration of HPV vaccines.

This film explains the true horror of what is happening to our young people in this crazy, dangerous age of vaccines. It begins with the story of a sufferer of Macrophagic Myofasciitis MMF, a muscle disease first identified in 1993. It’s a rare muscle disease characterized by microscopic lesions found in muscle tissue. The disease is highly associated with Aluminium Hydroxide found in many vaccines including Gardasil and the Hepatitis B shot.

We’re introduced to a young woman who describes her debilitating symptoms: extreme tiredness, pains in her legs, chronic sciatica, pain in her lumbar region at times so bad she can’t stand to be touched. Her muscles, she described as feeling ‘like they had been torn’. From her shoulders the extreme discomfort spreads all the way down to her fingers. As I listened to her story I had no problem relating it to those of the girls whose experiences are recorded in my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed .

Jasmine recalls her ordeal after her Gardasil vaccination:

 Following my first injection I experienced almost immediate ‘crawling’ sensations on my legs, which at the time, I figured was just a lack of magnesium. It wasn’t too bad, and the discomfort mostly went away; however, after the second injection it came back — tenfold. As a result, I had three years of chronic muscular/nerve pain that impacted everything from my relationship (due to the depression and insomnia that I developed) to my ability to study and enjoy life. I also became addicted to taking Panadol and Nurofen every single night for those following years, as it was the only thing that helped.

The stories in Injectable Aluminium are unfortunately so familiar. Young people forced to give up their careers, leave study, change life plans and all united by one factor. Like the featured young woman they had been vaccinated and despite consulting with numerous GP’s, neurologists, osteopaths and undergoing MRI’s, CT’s and blood work there was little help and no clear diagnosis. In this case the woman was advised to seek help at Henri Mondor Hospital in Créteil, France. Once there, she had a biopsy of her deltoid muscle revealing she had MMF. She also found out that her vaccinations with hepatitis B, diptheria, tetanus and polio had allegedly triggered her pathology.

Her case was identical to another patient, a nurse who had also complained of extreme body pain and had an unusual lesion filled with macrophages – cells of the immune system that engulf and digest foreign substances. The tissues of this muscle fragment were found to contain aluminium. In animal studies it has been found that some of these macrophages containing aluminium are being found in brain tissue and in the lymphatic system. On examining their many patients’ histories the researchers at the Henri Mondor Hospital were unable to find a history of recent aluminium exposure but what they did discover was that 100% of their patients with MMF had been vaccinated in the recent months or years. It was not known how long this post vaccination granuloma condition would last. 

At the time of these interviews there were 335 patients being treated at the hospital with the total number of their patients being 600. The doctor interviewed estimated that there may be around 10,000 cases of MMF in France. There is no register for recording how many people suffer this disease. MMF is not recognised in France and therefore there is no income support and no compensation. Neither is there any sign of funding becoming available for more research into the debilitating condition. Not that this is surprising in light of the profit motive inherent in the vaccine industry.

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

This is very serious for according to the World Health organisation the vaccine industry will be worth 100 billion dollars per year by 2025. Aluminum adjuvants are used in many vaccines: HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-containing vaccines, Haemophilus influenzae type b, and pneumococcal vaccines.

More important facts were gleaned from this expose called Injecting Aluminium.

The aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. It is the vaccine itself that is subject to an approval process. In the US, infants receive 16 shots containing aluminium by 18 months of age. And yet we haven’t done safety tests on these adjuvants.

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.

In the words of Dr. Christopher Exley, PHd in Ecotoxicology of Aluminum, University of Stirling : This film brings the human experience of a severely debilitating disease caused by aluminum adjuvants to life and, of equal importance, to the notice of the general public. Watch and understand one of the significant downsides of living in the aluminum age.

An experiment on her generation

The fact that her generation was part of an experiment was not lost on the astute radio presenter. An experiment that involved vaccinating all 12-13 year olds against the Human Papilloma Virus purported to cause cervical cancer. Marie was one of three young people, presenting Your Planet Needs You on 94.1FM, the Voice of the Inner East. The program boasts a demographic of late teens to young adults. This is also the cohort encouraged to take up the Gardasil vaccine offer. Marie and her co-presenters Sonja and Hadyn introduced me as their special guest inviting me to speak about my new book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed.

They were well informed which is just as well for many of their generation are now experiencing chronic ill health after HPV vaccination. According to vigibase, the World Health Organisation’s database of adverse events the total is now over 73,000. The Australian National HPV Vaccination Program began in 2007 offering Gardasil to girls aged 12 -13 years. In 2013 the program was extended to boys. Figures from 2014–15 reveal that nearly 79% of Australian girls aged 15 and 67% of boys were fully immunised against HPV.

My radio interview began with a primer on the human papilloma virus or HPV. This is as it should be for HPV is at the heart of this matter with its connection to cervical cancer poorly understood. HPV is an extremely common sexually transmitted infection with around 80 % of the population having the infection at some stage of their lives. Furthermore 90% of these infections are gone within 2 years. There are over 100 types of human papilloma viruses with Gardasil protective against types 6,11,16 and 18. It’s important to note that prior to the latter part of the 20th century cervical cancer was a disease believed to be associated with social conditions and natural ageing. Why and how HPV is thought to cause cervical cancer is crucial to Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed.

Regrettably there wasn’t enough time to tell the story of the relentless marketing campaign that preceded the approval of Gardasil. Then our TV screens were replete with stories of cervical cancer (a disease with an annual death toll of around 200 in Australia), hardly an epidemic, reaching 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.

I was pleased that the team asked me about informed consent- I have included a section in my book concerning the issue. We tend to forget that vaccination is a medical intervention and that we have a fundamental right to know and understand the benefits and the risks of the particular procedure– in this case a vaccination. But how should informed consent be given? Obviously parental consent forms are a good place to start, they should be informative but they are not.

If these forms constituted informed consent then parents of young teens would know there is no scientific evidence that Gardasil has ever prevented a single case of cervical cancer. This HPV vaccine is protective against 4 types of the human papilloma virus, two of which are said to be associated with cervical cancer and the other two cause genital warts. The vaccine only lasts for five years so by the time the boy or girl is likely to be sexually active any protective effect of the vaccine will have worn off. Cervical cancer can take decades to develop so why vaccinate 12 year-old girls?

In order to pass as informed consent the vaccine information must explain the risks of this vaccine. The current consent form given to Victorian school children to take home states that the vaccine ‘is safe and well tolerated’. But a cursory read of the manufacturer Merck’s prescribing information reveals that in the trials they failed to use an inert placebo but used one containing aluminium. This way the vaccine appears safer than if the placebo was saline. Furthermore aluminium, a neurotoxin is added to the vaccine to produce a stronger immune response. Scrolling down the prescribing information one can see the long list of serious adverse effects of the vaccine including life changing neurological disorders, blood and lymphatic diseases, pancreatitis, arthritis, pulmonary embolism and death.

Marie asked me to talk more about the flawed science that I discovered in my research. I explained that the HPV vaccines had not been tested for cervical cancer outcomes. This was not possible for cervical cancer takes decades to develop so a surrogate endpoint was chosen. The surrogate endpoints chosen were pre-cancerous lesions which are very common in the age range of the women tested and rarely lead to cancer. This makes it extremely difficult to support their use as end-points or markers for cervical cancer. As Marie took this statement in, her jaw literally dropped. I can only wonder what the radio audience made of this shocking revelation. The fact that this vaccine is given to girls and boys all over the world purported to lower their risk of cervical cancer by protecting them against the human papilloma virus yet it has not been tested against cervical cancer outcomes is damning and should form part of informed consent.

Lucky for Marie she wasn’t given Gardasil.  Her mother didn’t think she needed it and declined her consent. Some people are doing their research.

Can we talk about this?

Current thinking is that the human papilloma virus (HPV) causes cervical cancer and that all girls and boys in early high school need to be given HPV vaccines. In my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I trace the early history of cervical cancer from a disease of obscurity to one of mainstream prominence. I have found and documented the numerous theories about the cause(s) of cervical cancer which have come and gone over the decades. I have read and written about how in the early years of the nineteenth century physicians claimed that sex was involved for it was observed that the disease was found in larger numbers among poorer, city women than amongst women in long term and stable relationships and in women who were living in rural areas. It was also thought that the disease was very rare in nuns until further research showed that religious sisters were subject to the disease too, and that, contrary to prevailing opinion, women in long-term relationships also developed cervical cancer. It was suggested that in the case of cancer of the uterus that the trauma of childbirth itself could be a risk factor. Such speculation might explain why there was more cervical cancer among women of low socioeconomic status than among women of means. Poorer women tended to have more children, lived harsher lives and possibly received less medical care, as well as missing out on much-needed rest and recovery time after the birth of their children.

I believe these early researchers were on the right track when they suspected that social circumstances such as poverty and inequality were in some way implicated in the disease process. British psychologist, author and researcher Susan Quilliam documented these lifestyle factors that might increase the chance of becoming ill with cervical cancer in her 1989 book Positive Smear. Written just before the idea that the human papillomavirus might be involved, she 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. Quilliam strongly emphasised the importance of a healthy environment, good hygiene and excellent nutrition as prerequisites for good health and resistance to disease. When discussing the causes of cervical cancer, she doesn’t shy away from a conversation about the contraceptive pill and how it has a negative effect on natural immunity as well as a propensity to lessen the body’s ability to use folic acid.

Today such environmental and socioeconomic factors relevant to the causation of cervical cancer are rarely considered. Instead the human papilloma virus is said to cause cervical cancer, no questions asked or answered.  Why, when and how this has happened is crucial to the story of Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed.

Melbourne Launch of Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed by Helen Lobato

To be launched by women’s health researcher Dr Renate Klein

When: Friday June 9

Time: 5 pm for 5.30 pm

Where: Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre, 251 Faraday St, Carlton, Vic 3053

RSVP: Monday June 5 women@spinifexpress.com.au

 

In Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed Helen Lobato argues that we do not know whether HPV vaccines will decrease the incidence of cervical cancer. What is emerging, however, is evidence of their harmful effects. In 2006, the experimental HPV vaccination program began and there have been at least 315 associated deaths and more than 50,000 adverse events following HPV vaccination.

Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA, a process usually reserved for life threatening diseases to fill an unmet and urgent medical need. Improved living conditions had already reduced the incidence of cervical cancer significantly in Western countries. So why is the HPV vaccine so heavily promoted in Australia, a country with one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world?

Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed documents the early history of cervical cancer and tracks its progression from a disease of obscurity to one of mainstream prominence. It includes the stories of vaccinated girls and boys who remain ill after receiving a vaccine purported to prevent a disease they were most unlikely to get. It records the voices of dissenters and resisters who call for an inquiry into HPV vaccines approved for use after a relentless propaganda campaign promoting a vaccine against a virus that many had never heard of.

This in-depth investigation exposes cracks in the pharmaceutical industry and highlights the problems that arise when government regulators and corporate interests are prioritized ahead of patient safety, independent science and common sense.
