Gardasil Mandates Have Begun: Are Schools now Shills for Big Pharma?

Passive Agressive Raven
by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

Just when you think it can’t get any worse…it does.

Rhode Island has announced that the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, has been added as a requirement to attend the 7th grade. In an article published in the Washington Times, Tricia Washburn, chief of the Office of Immunization for the Rhode Island Department of Health, said:

“The bottom line is that HPV is the most sexually transmitted disease in the U.S.” she said. “We are interested in protecting the public health. We feel it shouldn’t be treated any differently than any of the other vaccines recommended by the CDC.”

Seventh graders are 12-13 years of age. What is behind this mandate? Does Rhode Island have a problem with promiscuous teens, prompting this CDC representative to be concerned about protecting the public from human papilloma virus disease?

HPV Vaccines Exposed: Subterfuge in a Syringe?

The Nationwide Liaison Association of Cervical Cancer Vaccine Victims and Parents in Japan, assisted by some of Japan’s best medical scientists, and a few politicians with strong morals are doing everything they can to get HPV vaccines banned from their country. These people see Gardasil and Cervarix as vaccines with an unacceptable safety profile and very little proven benefit.

Japanese safety advocates have already succeeded in getting their government officials to order both manufacturers (Merck and GlaxoSmithKline) to change the HPV vaccine package inserts to include stronger safety warnings to medical consumers regarding the possibility of ADEM, Guillain-Barre and neurological problems.

Unfortunately, that is not enough. The citizens of Japan are tired of watching their young girls suffer from convulsions, seizures, partial paralysis, severe pain and a host of new medical conditions after being subjected to HPV vaccinations.

Consequently, the Nationwide Liaison Association of Cervical Cancer Vaccine Victims and Parents has started a public petition to ban HPV vaccinations in Japan. An English language version of the same petition is here.

Why are Japanese citizens against HPV vaccinations?

Merck and GlaxoSmithKline marketing experts have done an outstanding job of creating a universal fear of being ‘infected’ with HPV, Human Papillomavirus. Unfortunately, the promotional materials for Gardasil and Cervarix as cervical cancer preventatives are filled with half-truths at best – perhaps even out and out lies.

Gardasil and Cervarix are promoted as cancer vaccines. They are not! Both vaccines are designed to combat two HPV types associated with cervical cancer. Even if these vaccines do exactly what they are meant to do – eliminate the two high risk types of HPV, no one will know if the vaccines have any impact on cervical cancer for decades.

Prior to the marketing push for HPV vaccines, CIN1/2/3 were known as abnormal cells – something that needed to be observed until treatment was required. Now, they are almost always referred to as ‘pre-cancerous’ lesions. This serves no purpose other than to strike fear into the heart of almost any woman on the face of the planet. The nature of the abnormal cells has not changed, simply the terminology. No mention is made of the fact that CIN1, CIN2 and often CIN3 abnormal cells revert to normal cells without medical intervention.

The following chart illustrates these facts perfectly. There is no doubt major pharmaceutical manufacturers such as Merck and GlaxoSmithKline stay abreast of information released by the World Health Organization, particularly if that information pertains to one of their top revenue producing products. If they do, then both companies are well aware of the information in the following chart.

Pay close attention to the numbers below. You will see the figures at the bottom of the pyramid quoted all over the place. You will not see the number at the top quoted, particularly by HPV vaccine manufacturers. This is the number medical consumers need to know – it clearly shows the virtually non-existent risk posed by being ‘infected’ with so-called carcinogenic HPV.

Keep in mind this is a World Health Organization estimate which clearly states that only 0.15% of those infected with carcinogenic HPV (high-risk HPV) will ever develop cervical cancer – much less die from it. It certainly doesn’t make a good argument for universal HPV vaccination programs, does it?

This was originally published on a women’s health site which is jointly sponsored by Japan Vaccines Co. Ltd and GlaxoSmithKline – and can be viewed here. The site is of course in Japanese, but you can clearly see the chart on the bottom left-hand side of the page.

It’s easy to see why everyone so afraid of being ‘infected’ with HPV. The pharmaceutical companies’ marketing experts have done their job so well that no one is able to see the simple truth.

The truth is 99.85% of those exposed to carcinogenic HPV will never develop cervical cancer!

In light of this revelation, why would anyone subject themselves or their child to the potential risks of vaccination? Consider the adverse event analysis below for those in the age group 7 to 18:

This chart compares the percentage of reports to the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System after HPV vaccines versus the 13 other vaccines used in the same age group.

Why do HPV vaccines account for such a high percentage of the total reports? What is so different about Gardasil and Cervarix?

Pap Screening versus HPV vaccines

Pap screening and the prompt treatment of abnormal cervical cells has never caused convulsions, partial paralysis, severe neurological damage, autoimmune disorders, seizures, chronic fatigue syndrome or death.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was established in 1990. There are 80 vaccines FDA-approved for use in the United States. HPV vaccines account for 25% of the entire VAERS database despite the fact they have been on the market for less than seven years. This is no small ‘accomplishment’ considering Gardasil and Cervarix have been on the market less than seven years?

Why add the risk of using Gardasil or Cervarix to a cervical cancer prevention program when pap screening has been proven safe and effective, particularly when the need for pap screening is not eliminated by HPV vaccine administration?

Your Choice: Medical Consumer or Guinea Pig

We live in a world where few women, if any, need ever die from cervical cancer. Why don’t governments simply concentrate on providing the already proven safe and effective means of controlling cervical cancer?

Are you willing to put pharmaceutical manufacturers and government health officials in the driver’s seat when it comes to your health or that of your children? Are you willing to trust the words of advertising campaigns built on half-truths and questionable research? Are you willing to blindly trust government health officials who get their advice from ‘experts’ with a financial stake in the vaccine game? Are you willing to put your life in the hands of people other than yourself?

If the answer to any one of the above questions is “no,” then it is high time to let the world know that you are a medical consumer – not a guinea pig.

Show the pharmaceutical companies you are willing to be an educated medical consumer. Let health officials know you and your family are not guinea pigs for the vaccine industry!

Another Doctor Testifies: ‘HPV Vaccine Does Not Protect Against Cancer’ Truthstream Media

Truthstream Media

Leading OBGYN Dr. Uzi Beller, described as “an international authority on gynecological cancers who treats patients on a daily basis” was recently quoted in the Jerusalem Post:

“If HPV vaccine…were proven to prevent cervical cancer, that would be something else. But it hasn’t. The US Food and Drug Administration checks for safety of the vaccine, but not for efficacy. There is no evidence that the vaccine protects against cervical cancer, only [that it] counters the virus itself. No decrease in invasive cervical cancer… in the vaccinated population has been documented so far.”

Beller testified at a meeting of 40 specialists in oncology, gynecology, vaccines and women’s health regarding HPV vaccines in Tel Aviv earlier this month. The Israeli Health Ministry was set to begin a widescale vaccination program of 65,000 14-year-old  school girls this fall, but the program has been halted for further review after multiple doctors have come forward voicing concerns that these vaccines’ scant potential benefits do not outweigh the myriad adverse health effects the HPV vaccine can — and has — caused.

Beller went on to note:

“HPV is different from all other vaccines. It is not a vaccination against cervical cancer but against a virus that in some cases causes a premalignant condition, and in a small number of cases, a malignancy. In a year in Israel, there are 180 cases of cervical cancer, and half [of those with the disease] die of it. [This] is a rate of five per 100,000 residents – the lowest rate of cervical cancer in the world. One would have thus have to vaccinate 20,000 girls to prevent one case.”

Big Pharma companies Merck (Gardasil) and GlaxoSmithKline (Cervarix) raked in billions on their HPV vaccines last year, most likely on the fears of concerned parents and patients under 30 who paid nearly $400 for a set of three shots to try and spare their adolescents or themselves from possibly getting HPV-related diseases like cervical cancer and genital warts.

Unfortunately though, as other doctors have pointed out in the past, HPV vaccines do not prevent cancer.

In fact, Gardasil only claims to protect those vaccinated with it from four of more than 100 strands of human papilloma virus and even if someone were to contract one of those strands, it does not automatically mean that person will even get cancer, regardless of Merck’s aggressive marketing campaigns based entirely on fear of it.

Even one of the top scientists that helped create Gardasil came forward to admit that the incidents of cervical cancer in the U.S. are already very low and, because the majority of HPV cases resolve themselves within one (70%) or two (90%) years’ time, the vaccine really will not have an effect on the cervical cancer rates either way.

On top of that, more than 30,000 adverse events have been reported since these vaccines were approved for sale, a much higher number than the estimated 12,000 cases of cervical cancer reported annually in America. The National Vaccine Injury Program recently paid $6 million to Gardasil victims. Negative side effects reported include Guillain-Barre syndrome, seizures, severe pain, fatigue syndrome, tremors, infertility, spontaneous miscarriage and even death. Over 60 people have died so far after getting the HPV vaccine.

Recently, the Japanese government has announced it will officially stop recommending HPV shots due to over 2,000 adverse reactions reported in the country. All Japanese healthcare providers will now be required to tell patients that the government does not recommend the vaccine.

HPV vaccines were fast-tracked, and their approval marks one of the most corrupt and obvious revolving door cases in the history of the U.S. government. The former U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director from 2002 to 2009 Dr. Julie Gerberding directly helped pave the way for approval of Merck’s Gardasil vaccine with a 2004 report to Congress on preventing HPV. After she left her position at the CDC in 2009, Dr. Gerberding walked right through the revolving door between our government and Big Pharma to accept a position as President of Merck’s Vaccine Division where she currently works.

Dr. Beller went on to assert he is not even against taking vaccines himself, he just holds deep reservations specifically about the efficacy of HPV vaccines:

“I am not at all against vaccines. I just underwent the oral polio vaccination as the Health Ministry instructed medical institutions to give the two drops to every doctor who is in direct contact with patients…if the vaccine prevented cervical cancer, I would be in favor. The vaccine [was hailed] in 2003 as being ‘the beginning of the end for cervical cancer,’ but it was exaggerated.”
