Let’s Talk About – HPV Vaccines

Share and help others

Unless one is currently living under a rock, it is absolutely impossible to have missed the incredible amount of media coverage that the HPV vaccine, especially Gardasil, is getting at the moment. It is being talked about, and promoted, on every radio and television station – well, certainly here in Ireland it is.

Parents are being told to give the vaccine to their daughters. That it is “safe” and it is being implied that if they do not consent to their daughter getting this vaccine they will be responsible for her death later in life.

In fact, a lot is being said about the vaccine and how wonderful it is but without any references to back up these statements. We are told to get our information from reputable sources. So let’s look at some of that reputable information.

The HSE (Health Service Executive) will direct you to medicines.ie for the information they wish you to have (here[1]. By going to the the manufacturer, Merck Sharp & Dohme, you will get more information (here) [2]. However, I would send you here [3], to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) where you will get 28 pages of The Full Prescribing Information which is far more informative and again from the manufacturer.

Let me give you some examples of how illuminating The Full Prescribing Information can be.

In Ireland, according to the HSE [4], the average age at diagnosis of cervical cancer is 46 years. Gardasil has never been proven to prevent one case of cervical cancer in the age group 27-45 years and has not been tested on any age >45 years, as stated on the The Full Prescribing Information.

14.7 Studies in Women 27 through 45 Years of Age

In the full analysis set (FAS), efficacy was not demonstrated for the following endpoints: prevention of HPV 16- and 18-related CIN 2/3, AIS, or cervical cancer and prevention of HPV 6- and 11-related condyloma. No efficacy was demonstrated against CIN 2/3, AIS, or cervical cancer in the general population irrespective of HPV type (FAS any type analysis).”

So for the HSE and the Irish Cancer Society to say that Gardasil prevents cervical cancer is in total opposition to what Merck is saying. Where is their evidence to back this statement up or is this just a mathematical projection?

Let’s look at more from The Full Prescribing Information.

The HSE says that Gardasil has undergone extensive testing and is safe. The Full Prescribing Information begs to differ.

6.1 Clinical Trials Experience.

There are 7 clinical trials listed for Gardasil. In order to see what effects a vaccine can cause it needs to be trialed against a placebo which is an inert substance, in other words a chemically inactive substance that is not capable of causing any effect whatsoever. That is not what happened with Gardasil. There were 7 trials, 5 of which were trialed against a control substance of Amorphous Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate (AAHS) instead of a placebo; AAHS is an adjuvant in the Gardasil vaccine and definitely an active substance which creates effects; 1 was against a saline placebo, a truly inert substance that has no effect; and one was uncontrolled, so no placebo or control substance.

I am absolutely astounded that scientists have only recently decided to start to study how adjuvants might work, their mechanism [5], freely admitting that they do not know how they work. So if they have no idea how they work, they also have no idea if they are safe. So using AAHS as a control substance instead of a placebo is ludicrous. AAHS is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin [6], it is far from an inert substance and if both groups are given it, both groups are going to experience the same nuerotoxic effects. Thus these trials are void as they are not placebo controlled.

6.1 Clinical Trials Experience.

Serious Adverse Reactions:

We are told about the results for Serious Adverse Reactions in the Entire Study Population of which there were 29,323 individuals. We now learn that 15,706 received Gardasil, 13,023 received AAHS and only 594 received the saline, the true placebo. Please note how very small the true placebo group is. Out of the group of 29,323 individuals 258 had a Serious Adverse Reaction, that is 1 out of every 114 people had a Serious Adverse Reaction. Let that sink in. Not one in a million as the government and the medical establishment would like us to believe but 1 in 114, that is a huge risk.

So who had  the 258 Serious Adverse Reactions? We are told straight up that 128 individuals from the Gardasil group had adverse reactions. However, then for some inexplicable reason the adverse reactions for the AAHS group are thrown in with the adverse reactions for the saline group and called the placebo group. Could it be that no one wants us to know the actual break down for these groups? We know that there are 130 more Serious Adverse Reactions to be accounted for, we know that there were 13,023 people in the AAHS group and only 594 in the saline group. So the AAHS group makes up over 95% of the placebo group. Based on this fact it is most likely that the majority of the 130 adverse reactions attributed to the untruthfully named placebo group actually belonged to the AAHS group and not the saline group, wouldn’t you think?

But wait, it gets better.

We are told “Of the entire study population (29,323 individuals), 0.04% of the reported serious systemic adverse reactions were judged to be vaccine related by the study investigator.” We are not told what criteria the investigator used to get rid of 99.96% of the serious systemic adverse reactions, that is apparently a secret.

Serious Systemic Adverse Reactions:

The following are the most frequently reported Serious Systemic Adverse Reactions for the Gardasil group, the AAHS group and the Saline group.

Gardasil group = 47 Serious Systemic Adverse Reactions:

Headache 3 people; Gastroenteritis 3 people; Appendicitis 5 people; Pelvic inflammatory disease 3 people; Urinary tract infection 2 people; Pneumonia 2 people; Pyelonephritis 2 people; Pulmonary embolism 2 people; Bronchospasm 1 person; Asthma 2 people; Two injection-site serious adverse reactions 1 person; Death 9 people; Sepsis 2 people; Pancreatic cancer 1 person; Arrhythmia 1 person; Pulmonary tuberculosis 1 person; Hyperthyroidism 1 person; Post-operative pulmonary embolism and acute renal failure 1 person; Traumatic brain injury/cardiac arrest 1 person; Systemic lupus erythematosus 1 person; Cerebrovascular accident 1 person; Breast cancer 1 person; Nasopharyngeal cancer 1 person.

AAHS group = 36 Serious Systemic Adverse Reactions:

Headache 2 people; Gastroenteritis 2 people; Appendicitis 1 person; Pelvic inflammatory disease 4 people; Urinary tract infection 2 people; Pneumonia 2 people; Pyelonephritis 3 people; Pulmonary embolism 2 people; Deaths 14 people; Asphyxia 1 person; Acute lymphocytic leukemia 1 person; Chemical poisoning 1 person; Myocardial ischemia 1 person.

Saline group = 1 Serious Systemic Adverse Reaction:

Medulloblastoma 1 person

Deaths:

There were 40 deaths for the Entire Study Population, 21 in the Gardasil group and 19 in the misnamed placebo group. So given that the AAHS group is 95% of the untruthful placebo group that would equate to 18 of the deaths leaving 1 in the placebo group.

Gardasil group = 21 Deaths:

There were 5 deaths due to motor vehicle accidents: we need to remind ourselves is that syncope (temporary loss of consciousness) and blackouts are reported side effects, could these conditions have played a role in the motor accidents? The cause of the motor accidents is not revealed. 2 deaths were due to drug overdose/suicides. 1 death was due to a gunshot wound. 1 death was due to pulmonary embolus/deep vein thrombosis. There were 2 deaths due to sepsis, 1 death due to pancreatic cancer, 1 death due to arrhythmia, 1 death due to pulmonary tuberculosis, 1 deaths due to hyperthyroidism, 1 deaths due to post-operative pulmonary embolism and acute renal failure, 1 death due to traumatic brain injury/cardiac arrest, 1 death due to systemic lupus erythematosus, 1 death due to cerebrovascular accident, 1 death due to breast cancer, and 1 death due to nasopharyngeal cancer,

AAHS group = 18 Deaths:

There were 4 deaths due to motor vehicle accidents, again we need to ask the same questions as above. 6 deaths due to drug overdose/suicides. 3 deaths due to gunshot wounds. 1 death due to pulmonary embolus/deep vein thrombosis. 1 death due to asphyxia, 1 death due to acute lymphocytic leukemia, 1 death due to chemical poisoning, and 1 death due to myocardial ischemia.

Saline group = 1 Death:

There was 1 death due to medulloblastoma.

Cancer and DNA mutation:

Did you know that Gardasil, like every vaccine, has never been tested to see if it causes cancer? Or to see if it alters our DNA?

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility GARDASIL has not been evaluated for the potential to cause carcinogenicity or genotoxicity.

The World Health Organisation (WHO):

Let’s look at another reputable source, shall we?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has a data base for reporting adverse drug reactions (ADR) called VigiAcess [7] as of the 16/09/2017 there are 76,387 ADRs reported for the HPV vaccine. How come the HSE and the medical professional say that this vaccine is “safe”?

The following are the systems in the body affected and the current ADRs for that system – on the site you can get a break down of the condition within that body system:

  1. Blood and lymphatic system disorders (1,756)
  2. Cardiac disorders (1,977)
  3. Congenital, familial and genetic disorders (249)
  4. Ear and labyrinth disorders (1,407)
  5. Endocrine disorders (299)
  6. Eye disorders (4,188)
  7. Gastrointestinal disorders (13,666)
  8. General disorders and administration site conditions (40,963)
  9. Hepatobiliary disorders (234)
  10. Immune system disorders (1,569)
  11. Infections and infestations (4,068)
  12. Injury, poisoning and procedural complications (9,944)
  13. Investigations (11,438)
  14. Metabolism and nutrition disorders (1,487)
  15. Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders (12,440)
  16. Neoplasms benign, malignant and unspecified (incl cysts and polyps) (899)
  17. Nervous system disorders (33,755)
  18. Pregnancy, puerperium and perinatal conditions (1,155)
  19. Product issues (71)
  20. Psychiatric disorders (4,222)
  21. Renal and urinary disorders (958)
  22. Reproductive system and breast disorders (2,766)
  23. Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders (4,990)
  24. Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders (12,882)
  25. Social circumstances (1,392)
  26. Surgical and medical procedures (1,851)
  27. Vascular disorders (4,870)

This is the geographical breakdown for the ADRs reported for HPV vaccine:

Continent Count Percentage
Africa 113 0
Americas 39,006 51
Asia 12,815 17
Europe 19,424 25
Oceania 5,029 7

So how can anyone, especially a government official or medical doctor, say that they are unaware of any adverse reactions? Are they not doing any of their own research?

Here are the ADRs by age:

Age group Count Percentage
0 – 27 days 53 0
28 days to 23 months 153 0
2 – 11 years 8,171 11
12 – 17 years 42,092 55
18 – 44 years 15,938 21
45 – 64 years 251 0
65 – 74 years 16 0
≥ 75 years 12 0
Unknown 9,701 13

As the above shows us that the majority of reactions are in the 12-17 years age group, how can anyone be saying that systemic adverse reactions in girls are normal? Perhaps they are normal if they have had a vaccine.

What is also truly worrying is that there are ADRs for babies, young children and older adults all of whom were never within the trial age groups. What is going on here? How come these age groups are receiving this vaccine?

I encourage you to read The Full Prescribing Information [8] for yourself, when you do you will find a lot more information than I have here.

I encourage you to research Cervical Cancer so that you know more about it, for instance what do CIN1, 2 & 3  [9] mean? If we know that they are precancerous abnormalities that are detected by Pap smears, can be treated and do not mean cancer, we are less afraid. We need to know that with the introduction of regular Pap smear testing the mortality rate from cervical cancer dropped by 50% in the US [10]. That Ireland does have one of the highest rates for cervical cancer but it also introduced regular Pap screening way later than other countries. Pap smears are essential to catch changes within the cells of the cervix, even the vaccine manufacturers say that regular Pap smears need to be continued. Also when you see a graph for Ireland that shows a drop in cervical cancer after the year 2010 (introduction of HPV vaccine) be aware that routine pap smears were introduced two years prior to this and that this is more than likely the reason for the drop in cervical cancer, not the introduction of the vaccine in that year. As cervical cancer takes on average 10-20 years to develop the drop cannot be attributed to the vaccine.

I encourage you to do more research on the HPV vaccine. Look at pubmed [11] and find as many papers as you can on the vaccine. Listen to the testimonies of other women who have had the vaccine. This one is particularly interesting as Erin Crawford had a clear Pap smear and a clean bill of health 3 months prior to getting the HPV vaccine and then 6 months after the vaccine she was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer from the HPV strains contained in the vaccine. Her story is inspiring as after having three medical interventions, which removed all of her cervix, she still had a diagnosis of cancer which she then cleared herself using non-conventional medicine. (11 minutes).

Know that the new Gardasil 9 vaccine, which contains extra HPV strains, is being brought out because while the HPV strains 16 and 18, which are contained in Gardasil, appear to be falling in relation to cervical cancer, other strains appear to be filling the vacuum, this is called type replacement [12]. Nature abhors a vacuum. Know also that Gardasil 9 was trialed against Gardasil and not a placebo.

As with everything in life, A assume nothing, B believe nothing and C check it out for yourself. ABC. Do not blindly believe me, the government, the medical profession or anyone else. Do your own research and make a decision based on that research. Do not give away your sovereignty over your or your child’s body. Remember that vaccines are a medical intervention and that both vaccines and diseases carry the risk of an adverse reaction so it is incredibly important that each person weigh up the risks and benefits for themselves.
