From Australia: Hundreds Get Sick From Gardasil Cancer Vaccine

“More than 17 girls a week have been experiencing adverse reactions such as seizures and numbness after taking cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil since it became widely distributed in April.”

From the US: Vaccine Safety Group Releases Gardasil Reaction Report

“If only 1 to 4 percent of all adverse events associated with Gardasil vaccination are being reported to VAERS, there could have been up to 38,000 health problems after GARDASIL vaccination in 2006 which were never reported.”

…and from this press release: Merck’s Gardasil Vaccine Not Proven Safe For Little Girls

“Merck and the FDA have not been completely honest with the people about the pre-licensure clinical trials,” said NVIC president Barbara Loe Fisher. “Merck’s pre and post-licensure marketing strategy has positioned mass use of this vaccine by pre-teens as a morality play in order to avoid talking about the flawed science they used to get it licensed. This is not just about teenagers having sex, it is also about whether Gardasil has been proven safe and effective for little girls.”

Just so you know, according to Wikipedia, in terms of prevention Gardasil’s claims of prevention only cover a small fraction of HPVs.

“130 HPV types have been identified. … About a dozen HPV types (including types 16, 18, 31 and 45) are called “high-risk” types because they can lead to cervical cancer.”

… and of these 12 high-risk cancers, Gardasil may only prevent two of them while the other 10 slip right on through (granted: those two are the most prevalent). Even drug-company Merck admits this:

“Gardasil is designed to prevent infection with HPV types 16, 18, 6, and 11.”

Here in Canada our sacred watchdog, the CBC, weighs in and decimates its credibility by doing Canadians a serious disservice after omitting almost all of the above in its latest propaganda piece.

“The catch with Gardasil, though, is that it has proved remarkably effective against two particular strains of HPV, which in themselves are said to be responsible for upwards of 70 per cent of cervical cancers. That means Gardasil will not prevent all cervical cancers and women are still advised to get Pap tests.”

“… are said to be responsible …” Love the use of passive voice, oh weasly writer. Proved by whom? Merck? (Oh please!) Do the math, oh lazy CBC reporter: 70% of 400 = 280 lives that might be saved versus the possibility of between 1,400 to 3,800 possible health problems as a result of the vaccination (extrapolated from the population-adjusted 17/week reported in Australia and 1/10th of NVIC’s claim of non-reported VAERS reactions). Many of these serious reactions involve death: 17 it appears in the U.S. so far and, if doctoral reluctance to report to VAERS is truly at 1/25th, as NVIC suspects, that fatality count may well be over 400. The next time CBC chooses to be a mouthpiece for Merck they may want to contact the odd differing viewpoint, like the folks at the National Vaccine Information Center. Completely disgusting, irresponsible journalism, CBC. IMO the article couldn’t be more yellow if it tried.

And if you’re planning to emigrate to the US, guess what? The U.S. Government is now making HPV Vaccinination mandatory for new US residents. This is just one more reason not to move there–why would anyone want to anyway?

Oh, and by the way, what’s the deal with over-30 chinese women and Gardasil? This blogpost does not bode well for chinese women living in southeast Asia:

“Gardasil Commercial seeking CHINESE Actress: CHINESE WOMEN / Female / Asian / 30-45 / MUST BE 100% Chinese / MUST BE OVER 30 and under 45 (ID’S WILL BE CHECKED AT AUDITION) … We are looking for more from the regions below. But all 100% chinese may send in picand contact info. 2. South Asia, 30 – 45, South Asian in appearance so would be accepted in several countries of region (Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia). Primary markets in the region are Singapore, Malaysia, & the Philippines.”

Is Merck now targetting chinese women abroad? I guess Gardasil’s marketing mercenaries (how do they sleep at night?) have decided that this demographic is insecure enough to be easy prey. On a positive note, North American girls appear to be getting wise to Merck’s marketing tactics (Yay!). According this Forbes article:

“Gardasil has been the blockbuster that wasn’t. While it logs a billion dollars in sales annually, even an expansion of uses on the label can’t make it the drug that Merck had hoped it would be.”

Meanwhile the list of side effects continues to lengthen (Gardasil Jab Linked to Pancreatitis – Australian Doctors Demand a Review) … and the victim tally mounts. I smell multiple class-action lawsuits in the works, and guess who will ultimately pay when Merck blames (and rightly so, I sadly admit) regulatory authorities like the FDA? Why that would be you, oh lucky taxpayer.

    During a 700 hrs VAERS database analysis, I came upon these horrific findings:
    http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/showrecord.php?rec=
    328348 the other one:#333341 (manuf: Merck)
    Event# 328348 describes 1 26 year old,after vaccination with HPV4/Gardasil her “blood lead
    increased,blood mercury abnormal”.Event #333341
    a 12 year old with no preexisting health condi-
    tions after vaccination had “blood arsenic increased,blood heavy metal abnormal”.FDA and CDC do not have any explanation how these heavy metals got into the girls blood when I questioned them regarding possible contamination.”We are not aware of any contamination”.It appears Gardasil is going to turn into another Vioxx tragedy.INV.
