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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tickets are still available for the Sacrificial Virgins tour.

Why are we replacing the Pap smear with a test for HPV?

Why are we replacing the successful Pap smear program with an HPV test when we don’t know if HPV is the cause of cervical cancer?

Joan Shenton, is a British broadcaster and producer of Sacrificial Virgins:  Not for the greater good.  In Part One of the series, Shenton interviews molecular biologist Professor Peter Duesberg who is also the author of What if HPV does NOT cause cervical cancer?  and asks him whether there is a causal relationship between the human papilloma virus and and cervical cancer. “Absolutely not”, he replied, adding that if HPV is there at all then it is what is known as a passenger virus. “It does nothing…these are fossils of HPV which are still in some cells. They are from an infection decades prior to the cancer.” This is damning and we must ask what on earth we are doing vaccinating girls and boys all over the world with a vaccine protective against a harmless wart virus. But the vaccine is not harmless. On the contrary there are more adverse events following its administration than for all other vaccines.

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. Since the Australian National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, the number of deaths from the disease have halved (Cancer Council Australia, 2017).

In December 2017 the successful two-yearly pap tests for women aged between 18 and 69 will be replaced by a five-yearly HPV test for 25 to 74-year-olds. An  ABC online article explains that HPV screening looks for DNA from the human papillomavirus virus strains that cause the vast majority of cervical cancers. (Or so they say). The mainstream media was all over this new test yesterday. Why? Because according to Karen Canfell, director of the Cancer Research Division at the Cancer Council NSW, HPV screening for cervical cancer had been extensively studied and modelled, and shown to be better than Pap smears and liquid-based cytology. And the end of the year when this new program commences is fast approaching. It is time for promotion. And the media follows suite. They do not ask how these changes might adversely affect women or some women. They do not ask if there might be a problem with over treatment.

I suggest that these changes to the national cervical screening program are highly problematic. Firstly because the test is predicated on the basis that HPV causes cervical cancer. But we do not know that. We are told that cervical cancer is caused by HPV but even if the common human papilloma virus is found in tumour cells it may just be a harmless passenger. The real causes of cervical cancer are most likely socioeconomic and environmental factors such as poverty, nutritional deficiences, smoking, multiparity, prolonged contraceptive use and ageing. This test is for HPV not for cervical cancer. HPV is a very common virus so much so that most of us have had this at some stage in our lives. HPV is likely to be found in cervical cells but as Professor Duesberg has explained if the virus is detected it is a fossil, left over from earlier infection.

Pap smear testing has often been seen as excessive and resulting in cases of over-screening and treatment but this new test amounts to much more of the same. If the HPV test finds that a woman has HPV type 16 or 18, she will be given a colposcopy to look for any pre-cancerous cervical lesions. And if the HPV test finds any of the other high risk strains of HPV, then a Pap test will be ordered to ascertain if a colposcopy is required (Sifferlin, 2014). All of this of course will result in more colposcopies, and a lot of unnecessary worry for women who return a positive HPV test. And a great business opportunity for those in the sickness industry. This includes the vaccine industry – for this is sure to mean more women lining up for HPV vaccines and more adverse events resulting in more sick girls and boys who then need expensive medical care if they are to recover their former health. This policy is disastrous as is the HPV vaccination program which vaccinates teenagers all over the world with a vaccine that at best is preventative against a few strains of the human papilloma virus but does not protect them against cancer. How could it – it is a vaccine against a wart virus, that is all.

With these changes to the screening program there is particular concern for women who test negative for HPV but who have cervical cancer. HPV-negative tumours are present in many types of cervical cancers. Zhao MD and his colleagues report that large-scale studies reveal the existence of HPV-negative cervical cancers present in almost all types of cervical cancers (Zhao MD et al., 2014). According to Bosch et al. (2002), there has been little investigation of older women with cervical cancer, but it is likely that the HPV-negative cancers can be found in this group of women.These HPV-negative women will not have their disease found as early as they would have with a routine Pap smear.  There has been little investigation of older women with cervical cancer but it is likely that the HPV negative cancers can be found in this group of women.

With the arrival of videos such as Sacrificial Virgins:  Not for the greater good  and books such as Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed the HPV causes cervical cancer is being exposed as the shocking sham it is. The vaccination program needs to stop until there is proof that HPV causes cancer and so far there is none. And the mainstream media need to up their game. After all this is what they are being paid for.
