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.

Vaccines DO cause autism

 

vaxxed-1200x627-facebook-link

The U.S Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) altered their analysis plan based on their research on the safety of the MMR so that the risk of autism from the vaccine was shown not to be significant.

Autism was unheard of before 1930. In 1978 the prevalence of autism was around 1 in 15,000 children. But around the early 1990s there was an exponential growth in the disease coinciding with a massive increase in the number of vaccines given to babies and children. In 1950 children would have received around 7 vaccines by the age of 6. Fast forward to 2016 where by the time they go to school they would have been given at least 41 or even 46 if they get the recommended flu shots. Seriously there has to be something very wrong with this childhood vaccination policy. And there is.

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-3-41-11-pmIn 1995 Dr Andrew Wakefield, a world-renowned gastroenterologist received a call from a mother telling him about her child who had become autistic after his Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine (MMR). Vaccines were not Wakefield’s field but the mother insisted that her child had terrible gastrointestinal issues and that was why she was seeking his help. Subsequently he heard a succession of similar stories whereupon further research led to the discovery that there was a link between a novel type of intestinal inflammation and autism following the MMR vaccination. Wakefield’s finding was reported in the Lancet with the disclaimer that the work did not prove an association between autism and MMR and that further work was needed. For all his trouble Wakefield was accused of fraud by a journalist Brian Deer writing in the British Medical Journal resulting in the good doctor losing his career and reputation.

 Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe documents the tragedy of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. It features interviews with parents of vaccine-injured childen and doctors and politicians and the voice of the whistleblower and leading scientist from the U.S Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Dr. William Thompson who confesses that the CDC altered the analysis plan of the research into the risks of the MMR vaccine.

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-6-25-25-pmPolly Tommy, the editor-in-chief of the Autism File tells the story of her second child Billy who straight after his first MMR vaccine at the age of 18 months suffered febrile convulsions and rapidly regressed into autism. The children seen in the film had all been developing normally until the age of 18 months when they were given their MMR shot after which they regressed both in behaviour and development. These were children with no previous health problems who were now autistic. All healthy children whatever race are at risk of autism after the vaccine.

‘ What i have on my hands now is a nineteen- year – old man. He’s six-foot two, he’s volatile. On a good day he is brilliant, he’s an angel.  On bad days the slightest thing can trigger him and he is scary’, says Tommy.

Wakefield discovered that safety studies done on the MMR vaccines were ‘lamentable’ and that it was known since 1987 when the vaccine was used in Canada that is caused meningitis in vaccinated children. It was withdrawn there but later licensed for use in the UK where it also caused meningitis. It should have been destroyed but was shipped for continued use in developing nations such as Brazil where it caused an epidemic of  meningitis. Scientists who studied this epidemic found out that the younger the child got the vaccine the greater risk of meningitis. This led Wakefield to suspect that the earlier a child got the MMR the greater risk of autism. The recommended time for a child to be vaccinated with MMR is 12-18 months.

In hidden data exposed by whistleblower Thompson it was clear that especially for African-American children the most dangerous time to get the vaccine is between the ages of 12 and 18 months. The CDC knew that if African-American children were given MMR vaccine at this time they were 2.6 times more likely than others to become autistic after being given the vaccine. So they altered the analysis plan which describes the rules that scientists will adhere to when doing a study. In order to conceal the effect of the MMR one of the things they did was to reduce the number of children in the study in order to reduce the statistical power – that is the ability of the study to detect a difference if it exists. When it appeared that the risk of autism was greater in African-American children they deviated from the analysis plan so that the risk was not significant.

So there you have it. The CDC had known all along that there was this MMR – autism link. In the USA in 2014 there were 1,082,353 cases of autism and the prediction is that by 2032, 1 in 2 children will be autistic and 80% of the boys. Every 7 minutes in the U.S. a child is diagnosed with autism. Dr Wakefield points out that the problem is with the combination MMR vaccine and urges the use of single vaccines for the diseases measles, mumps and rubella until the problems with the MMR are resolved. However this safe approach does not meet with health officials who say “if we allow this it would destroy the MMR program”.

The film is about the revelations of the dirty dealings at the CDC coming from the whistleblower Dr. William Thompson. The story is told by Del Bigtree, a medical journalist and Polly Tommy along with Dr. Andy Wakefield. Vaxxed was recently  withdrawn from the Castlemaine Local and International Film Festival. The decision to include the film in the festival drew widespread criticism from Public Health Association of Australia chief executive Michael Moore who said that such a decision showed a lack of understanding of the impact the film could have on parents. His sentiments were echoed by Victorian Health Minister Jill Hennessy, who said it was dangerous to promote a message against vaccination. I beg to differ and would urge our public health officials to look at the film before any more children are damaged. The film is being shown all over the USA and copies can be bought online. I suggest that we all get a copy and spread it around and stop the carnage that is resulting from mass vaccines.
