Teens diagnosed with MS after Gardasil

In 2015 a Scandinavian study  found no increased risk for Multiple Sclerosis or demyelinating disease among 4 million females, of whom 800,000 received the HPV vaccination.

But at a recent forum in San Diego researchers presented two cases of multiple sclerosis (MS) that had developed in teenagers after receiving Gardasil the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

The study author Ye Hu reported on 2 teens who experienced MS symptoms 1 to 2 weeks after receiving the vaccination.

A 14-year-old male started to experience left retro-orbital pain and blurred vision in the left eye 2 weeks after receiving his third dose of Gardasil. He was diagnosed with left optic neuritis and reported a second occurrence 2 months after his initial symptoms.

A 17-year-old female started to experience blurred vision in the right eye 2 weeks after receiving her first dose of Gardasil. A right frontal enhancing lesion was seen on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). She was diagnosed with right optic neuritis and did not receive further doses of Gardasil. One week after discharge, she experienced intermittent numbness and weakness in her lower extremities in addition to blurred vision in her right eye. A repeat brain MRI revealed a new left parieto-occipital enhancing lesion.

It is pleasing to read of this research which is the start of much more to come and signals an opening up of a conversation that acknowledges the problems associated with the HPV vaccines manifesting in thousands of adverse events and hundreds of deaths occurring after the vaccination.

According to VAERS the CDC’s vaccine adverse event reporting system there have been 53 cases of multiple sclerosis reported after vaccination with Gardasil and two following the new HPV vaccine Gardasil 9. This is the tip of the iceberg as very few adverse events are reported with most people ignorant of where or how they are to go about the process of having their adverse health event recorded. Then there’s the problem of determining if symptoms of an adverse event are causally linked to vaccines or a coincidence.

Canadian researchers Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher A Shaw note that there are no conclusive tests available to determine whether adverse events are causally linked to vaccinations. They discuss the fact that many of the symptoms reported to the various reporting systems following HPV vaccination point to a diagnosis of cerebral vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels in the brain) but are not recognised as such. Symptoms of cerebral vasculitis include:

intense persistent migraines, syncope, seizures, tremors and tingling, myalgia, locomotor abnormalities, psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits

The symptoms of multiple sclerosis can also be similar to those of other diseases such as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) and include problems with coordination and speech, sight difficulties, fatigue and weakness.

In my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I relate the experience of Kristin Clulow, a 26-year-old Australian woman who after her second shot of Gardasil found her health beginning to unravel in a devastating way.high res

 

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 was initially given the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and treated unsuccessfully with corticosteroids. Further tests revealed that she was suffering from acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), an immune-mediated inflammatory demyelinating condition that predominately affects the white matter of the brain and spinal cord.

Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease affecting the central nervous system with interference occurring in nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. The average age for a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is 30, but in recent years the number of younger women diagnosed with the disease in Australia has risen dramatically. It used to affect men and women equally but now women are three times more likely to be affected.

Recently I came across a young woman who was relieved to be diagnosed with MS because no-one had been able to tell her why she was unwell. Her symptoms began when she was 13 and consisted of headaches, sensory deficit affecting her leg, and fatigue resulting in her missing a lot of school.

I wondered as I listened to her story if she might be suffering a vaccine injury.  Neurological dysfunction is one of the very common adverse events of the Gardasil vaccine. Her symptoms started at 13, the age that Gardasil is given to young teens as part of the school vaccination program.

In all of this I have to wonder just how many girls and boys are diagnosed with MS and other neurological conditions and autoimmune diseases rather than with a vaccine injury. Sometimes the correct diagnosis is eventually made as it was in the case of Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old Melbourne woman  who suffered autoimmune and neurological problems following her Gardasil vaccination. Snell was initially diagnosed with multiple sclerosis  but was later diagnosed as suffering a neurological response to the vaccine.

Vigibase, the World Health Organisation’s database of adverse events reports 36,915 nervous system disorders following Gardasil vaccination. But then each shot of Gardasil contains 225 mcgs of aluminium, a neurotoxin used as an adjuvent to stimulate a vaccine immune response. When Kristin Clulow had a mineral analysis of her hair done it showed that her body was high in aluminium.

Once in the body injected aluminium can migrate and accumulate in the brain. Scientists at Keele University have recently discovered the way the aluminium in vaccine adjuvants travels from the site of injection to the brain.

The toxic potential of aluminum is high. This study has demonstrated that injecting alum adjuvants with vaccines results in transference to the brain, where it persists.

Such research must be continued and heeded by those in power who continue to prescribe an ever-increasing number of vaccines often laden with aluminium adjuvants needed to bring about an immune response.

As the new school year begins Australian teenagers will be offered the latest HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 which contains even more of the aluminium adjuvent than the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. One shot of Gardasil 9 has 500 micrograms of this known neurotoxin. Girls and boys will receive two shots of the vaccine, bringing the total amount of aluminium injected into their young bodies up to 1000mcg.

Gardasil and Gardasil 9 contain amorphous aluminium hydroxyphosphate sulphate (AAHS) a new form of aluminium which causes the immune system to become 104 times more powerfully stimulated than would occur naturally.

The adverse events in their many forms can be avoided. The HPV vaccination programs must be stopped. Our teenagers do not need HPV vaccines to prevent them from cervical cancer. Since the Australian National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, the number of deaths from the cervical cancer have halved. There is no epidemic of the disease in western nations. In 2014, there were 223 deaths from cervical cancer in Australia and the deaths were mostly among elderly women.

And yet we have institutionalised this vaccine for every teenager.

In “FDA approved Gardasil 9: Malfeasance or Stupidity?,” Norma Erickson examined the Gardasil 9 package insert where she found that the rate of serious adverse events in the trials of Gardasil 9 was 2.3-2.5%. This means that for every 100,000 people who are given Gardasil 9, there will be 2,300 serious adverse events, and yet the cervical cancer rate in the U.S. is around 7 women per 100,000. This is insanity!

Expect to hear more research linking HPV vaccines to neurological events and autoimmune diseases. The truth will come out!

Gardasil Weekly Update

Class action against Merck Sharp & Dohme

On a positive note if there is one in this Gardasil story is the news that a class action against the manufacturers of Gardasil began on August 4, 2017 on behalf of 700 Columbian women who in March 2014 were admitted to the hospital suffering new medical conditions after the administration of Gardasil. The Reconstruando Esperanza Association consists of the alleged victims of Gardasil, which is suing  Merck Sharp & Dohme for “the damages caused to the life and health” of hundreds of women and girls.

Some background to this case:

In August 2014, The South China Post  reported: Hundreds of girls in Colombian town sick after taking Gardasil vaccine. While the parents of the girls suspected adverse reactions to the HPV vaccine, there were others such as the National Ministry of Health who called this a case of mass hysteria and even suggested the idea that their illnesses might be as a result of illicit drug use or overuse of the ouija board.

Jeffrey Jaxen reports on the testimonies given by the girls:

Maria Paula Salamanca, was given an injection of Gardasil on May 27, 2013.

A year prior to that, in 2012, Salamanca was a world-class skater winning a silver metal for Colombia in the annual 100K New York Marathon. After the HPV shot, she began to pass out and have migraines that she, her coaches and her family all attributed to fatigue.

Juliana Vega, now 19 years old, was given the HPV shot at school in 2014 yet was never warned about the risks. Fifteen days later she began fainting, and started losing her hair and vision. Vega testified stating:

I had to suspend my plans for college. I was extremely athletic before, now I can’t run — my legs won’t let me. I have no wheelchair and if I awake with no mobility in my legs, I have to stay in bed.

Some practical support for the girls has come from a powerful figure in Columbian politics. Inspector General Alejandro Ordoñez insisted that the girls were given top treatment and asked that the National Institute of Health issue scientific studies of HPV suggesting vaccine safety. Meanwhile the Health department held an inquiry into the outbreak of new medical conditions arising after the second dose of Gardasil and concluded that the girls symptoms were not due to Gardasil rather they were due to episodes of psychogenic cause, due to the minor’s fear of being sick, augmented by the media attention on the events and lack of an identified cause.

It is no wonder the Columbian girls and their families have taken to the courts. Good luck to the 700 young women as they seek justice through the courts for the damages caused to the life and health.

Patrice’s message to other mothers is clearly: ‘Don’t do it.’

This harrowing story told by Patrice about the death of her daughter Gabby was recorded by the Vaxxed team while they toured Australia this week. This is the first death in Australia in relation to Gardasil that I have heard of, but of course it is unlikely to be the only Australian death that has occurred in a girl or boy following HPV vaccination. The Database of Adverse Events Notifications (DAEN) found on the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) website, lists there have been around 4000 adverse events recorded but they list no deaths. But few people are aware of where or how to record their adverse events so the real extent of events following vaccination are likely to be much worse and may include deaths. The recording system VAERS covering USA and some European countries reports that there have been 324 deaths following Gardasil vaccination. Patrice’s daughter Gabby who died several years ago wanted to have the vaccine. Gabby was a normal healthy young girl and she and her friends were very aware of the media hype that preceded the rollout of Gardasil including TV ads urging girls to be ‘one less’ to die from cervical cancer. Gabby’s mother Patrice had a gut instinct that the vaccine wasn’t needed and told her daughter about her concerns regarding its safety but to no avail. After her first Gardasil vaccine Gabby complained of a headache that didn’t go away followed by pain in the right side of her abdomen three weeks after the shot. This was found on ultrasound to be coming from a tumour on her right ovary. Gabby was diagnosed with small cell ovarian cancer. She was given chemotherapy and died an ‘excruciatingly painful death’. Patrice’s message to other mothers is clearly: ‘Don’t do it.’

Multiple sclerosis or vaccine injured?

The average age for a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis is 30, but in recent years the number of younger women diagnosed with the disease in Australia has risen dramatically. It used to affect men and women equally but now women are three times more likely to be affected. I recently heard of a young woman who was relieved when she was diagnosed with MS because no-one had been able to tell her why she was unwell. Her symptoms began when she was 13 and consisted of headaches, sensory deficit affecting her leg, and fatigue resulting in her missing a lot of school.

I wondered as I heard her story if rather than MS she was suffering a vaccine injury.  Neurological dysfunction is one of the very common adverse events of the Gardasil vaccine. Her symptoms started at 13, the age Gardasil is given to young teens as part of the school vaccination program. It makes me wonder just how many girls and boys are diagnosed with MS and other neurological conditions and autoimmune diseases rather than with a vaccine injury. Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old Melbourne woman suffered autoimmune and neurological problems following her Gardasil vaccination and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis initially but was later found to be suffering a neurological response to the vaccine. Similarly 26-year-old Kristin Clulow from NSW was given the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis after her health began to unravel after her second shot of Gardasil with the prescribed treatment methylprednisolone, commonly given to sufferers of this debilitating neurological disease. Kristin was eventually given the diagnosis of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, an immune-mediated inflammatory demyelinating condition that predominately affects the white matter of the brain and spinal cord.

Laura, one of the Irish ‘Gardasil Girls’ was told she was suffering chronic fatigue syndrome after her condition worsened to such an extent she could no longer go to school. But whatever the health system chose to call the debilitating conditions, she and the other affected girls and their families are united in their conviction that they became ill after their HPV vaccinations. Many of these girls and now boys who are unwell after their HPV vaccinations are forced to seek medical help, they need answers. But instead they are given a medical diagnosis that seems to fit while the cause remains hidden.

‘They thought I’d had a stroke!’

Screen shot 2013-08-23 at 3.14.12 PM

‘It breaks my heart’, lamented Kristin Clulow, a young Australian woman harmed by Gardasil. In May 2008, 26-year-old Kristin received the first of her two shots of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine that is aimed at reducing cervical cancer. 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 did not think the two events connected, and so turned up at her doctors for her second shot of Gardasil.
