Some new research has been published about the HPV vaccine Gardisil made by drug giant Merck. First off, we need to remember that the US government has granted immunity to all drug companies that manufacture vaccines from any sort of legal liability for any harm that they cause. Okay, this is the basis for their actions wherein they, Merck and others, force approval of certain vaccines even when their own research shows them to be harmful. The application for approval for Gardisil showed that according to Merck, the vaccine can actually INCREASE your risk of cervical cancer. WHAT? Yeah, it seems that if you have already been exposed to some HPV strains prior to receiving the first vaccine, then you increase your risk of precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6 percent. This is from Merck's testing. And of course that isn't the only thing going on with Gardisil, here is a rundown on the other problems with the stuff.
You know I am one of the luckiest people in the world. In 1993 I received a pneumonia vaccine and began exhibiting symptoms of Gullain-Barre Syndrome. Horrific pain in my arms and legs. Lasted about 6 weeks. I fortunately recovered. Many do not.
- Between June 1, 2006 and December 31, 2008, there were 12,424 reported adverse events following Gardasil vaccination, including 32 deaths. The girls, who were on average 18 years old, died within two to 405 days after their last Gardasil injection
- Between May 2009 and September 2010, 16 additional deaths after Gardasil vaccination were reported. For that timeframe, there were also 789 reports of "serious" Gardasil adverse reactions, including 213 cases of permanent disability and 25 diagnosed cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome
- Between September 1, 2010 and September 15, 2011, another 26 deaths were reported following HPV vaccination
- As of May 13, 2013, VAERS had received 29,686 reports of adverse events following HPV vaccinations, including 136 reports of death,7, as well as 922 reports of disability, and 550 life-threatening adverse events
I still have no idea how much my insurance paid for that vaccine.
Jonas Salk developed the ORAL polio vaccine and gave it to the world to make it better. The AMA doesn't recommend its use anymore. Instead, they use an injectable form. Side effects from oral, few, all minor with the exception of persons that are HIV positive, then there is a slim possibility of contracting polio. Side effects for injectable polio vaccine, The list includes 67 side effects up to and including, death, with as many as 64.5% of people receiving the injection exhibiting some side effects. Oral polio vaccine is cheap, reliable and doesn't have to pay any royalties to anyone. Injectable polio vaccine is patented. AAAhhhhh, money.
Do you see the AMA reasoning for pushing vaccines onto patients?
Do you understand why the Federal Government of the United States of America has granted manufacturers of vaccines immunity from liability for any problems with their products?
It is difficult to prove that EVERY single member of the Senate and Congress receives campaign contributions from the drug industry, because campaign finance laws still need to be strengthened and defined.
Campaign reform? Never will happen, too much money changing hands for reform. Any politico claiming to want reform is in desperate need of votes. Lots claim to want it, until after the election.
Anyway, political soapbox aside, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) ((Yeah, it's real, the Feds attempt to placate those whose children have been killed or their lives destroyed by vaccination)) has about 200 claims for HPV vaccine death and complications. Half they dismissed outright, (love that), and half the rest they have paid out a little over 5 million.
Last year, some researchers at the University of British Columbia looked at the data about the vaccine's effectiveness. It seems that Merck likes to only use certain parts of their data. But upon inspection, in its entirety, it seems that all of their claims are, unproven.
Yikes, a huge corporation that has the freedom to do whatever it wants with no fear of legal ramifications pushing their product to make tons of money using data that is not exactly true to support their position is something that I believe I might have talked about here before. In fact, yesterday. Oh well.“We carried out a systematic review of HPV vaccine pre- and post-licensure trials to assess the evidence of their effectiveness and safety. We found that HPV vaccine clinical trials design, and data interpretation of both efficacy and safety outcomes, were largely inadequate. Additionally, we note evidence of selective reporting of results from clinical trials (i.e., exclusion of vaccine efficacy figures related to study subgroups in which efficacy might be lower or even negative from peer-reviewed publications).Given this, the widespread optimism regarding HPV vaccines long-term benefits appears to rest on a number of unproven assumptions (or such which are at odds with factual evidence) and significant misinterpretation of available data.For example, the claim that HPV vaccination will result in approximately 70% reduction of cervical cancers is made despite the fact that the clinical trials data have not demonstrated to date that the vaccines have actually prevented a single case of cervical cancer (let alone cervical cancer death), nor that the current overly optimistic surrogate marker-based extrapolations are justified.Likewise, the notion that HPV vaccines have an impressive safety profile is only supported by highly flawed design of safety trials and is contrary to accumulating evidence from vaccine safety surveillance databases and case reports which continue to link HPV vaccination to serious adverse outcomes (including death and permanent disabilities).We thus conclude that further reduction of cervical cancers might be best achieved by optimizing cervical screening (which carries no such risks) and targeting other factors of the disease rather than by the reliance on vaccines with questionable efficacy and safety profiles.”
Once again, if we as informed consumers refuse vaccines that are not safe, then manufacturers will be required to make ones that are. A vaccine should not contain mercury, aluminum, MSG, Corn Syrup, BHA or any of a whole host of toxic items that should never be injected into anyone's bloodstream, let alone an infant that can't process such toxins.
Good luck in life, remember, it's your world too, take some responsibility for it.
