- "The fantasy that there are shortcuts that come
in syringes or bottles remains, for now just that: a fantasy." --Peter
B. Bach, MD(1)
- On June 8, 2006, the US Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) approved a new cervical cancer vaccine, called Gardasil, manufactured
by Merck [the company that also made the pain-killer Vioxx that was removed
from the market due to the potential doubling of heart attacks and strokes].
Girls 11-26 were targeted for a three-shot regimen, given over six months.
The cost is about $400. This vaccine is also approved for girls as young
as nine years old. By February of 2007, "at least 20 states [were]
considering making its use mandatory for schoolgirls."(2)
- Serious side effects from Gardasil were already being
reported within the first year. "Between June 8, 2006, and Dec. 31,
2008, 11,916 adverse reactions to the vaccine and the death[s] of 32 young
women and girls" were reported.(3) By the Summer of 2009, vaccine-related
injuries had climbed to 15,000. On March 30 of this year, the reported
unexplained deaths following Gardasil injections had increased to 49.(4)
More information is available at the National Vaccine Information Center:
- In February 2009, Spain recalled "76,000 doses of
Gardasil Following Seizures in Two Young Girls."(5) At the time, Erin
Brockovich noted that in the US: "We've had more than two girls [became]
sick, and to my knowledge NO doses of the vaccine were ever recalled here.
The issue is that two girls got sick and Spain responded immediately. Think
of the human cost of rushing to market."(6)
- In that regard, Dr. Mercola has written: "Merck
has convinced millions of girls [and their parents] to get vaccinated with
Gardasil by instilling in them a fear of the sexually transmitted diseaseHPV
[and] this fear mongering is only revealing a select assortment of facts.
Merck would like you to hear that 6 million women contract HPV annually
but they do not tell you that most of these cases are harmless. Your
body can clear up HPV on its own, and does so more than 90 percent of the
- There has been no long-term research done for this vaccine.
An article in the "New England Journal of Medicine" has urged
"caution."(8) The author of this article, Dr. Haug, has written:
"there has been [financial?] pressure on policy makers worldwide to
introduce the HPV vaccine in national or statewide vaccination programs.
How can policy makers make rational choices about the introduction of medical
interventions that might do good in the future, but for which evidence
is insufficient, especially since we will not know for many years whether
the intervention will work or in the worst case do harm?"(9)
- This HPV vaccine is supposed to target two strains of
an oncogenic [cancer producing], sexually transmitted virus known as Human
Papillomavirus (HPV). The vaccine does not provide any protection for anyone
who already has HPV. The speed with which this vaccine was rushed to market,
without adequate independent research, is similar to last year's incredible
fast-tracking of the poorly tested (and some of it untested) and dangerous
H1N1 flu vaccines. After the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a
spurious Level 6 "pandemic" on June 11, 2009, the US government
was already mandating that all Americans over the age of six months be
- There were no long-term, independent safety trial studies
done for any of the 2009 H1N1 flu vaccines. Several hospital researchers
involved in the Summer 2009 trials commented on the big "rush"
to get these vaccines out. Some of that short-term testing did not even
use the same vaccines that were going to be mandated later in the Fall.
How then could accurate results be compared with different vaccine ingredients?
WHO wasn't even tracking the actual number of confirmed laboratory H1N1
cases.(10) Precaution was not part of vaccine manufacture or governmental
- In an article written by Michel Chossudovsky last year,
he noted: "There was no uniform system for collecting data on suspected
swine flu [H1N1] victims in the US, which led to confusion in the absence
of accurate statistics. The CDC [Centers for Disease Control] acknowledge
that the figures being collected on 'confirmed and probable cases' in the
US contained not separation between 'confirmed' and 'probable.'
- In fact, only a small percentage of the reported cases
were 'confirmed' by laboratory tests. This faulty data and much more like
it from around the globe was given to the WHO, who in turn used the numbers
to justify a pandemic. Sadly, the CDC is not protecting humanity because
it is too busy expanding the bottom line of the pharmaceutical industry."(11)
- This article, subsequently, was hailed by Project Censored
as one of its top stories for 2009.
- In the event of injuries and/or deaths resulting from
these H1N1 vaccines, the US government indemnified the pharmaceutical companies:
GlaxoSmithKline, Baxter, and Novartis. Deaths and injuries did occur. In
one instance of which I know personally: the one-year-old grandson of a
friend was taken by his mother for his "one-year-old check-up"
to his pediatrician. Without the mother's permission, a staff nurse took
the child out his mother's arms, and was given a H1N1 vaccine shot. The
nurse told the mother: "Oh, it's no big deal." The child died
three days later. The family remains devastated. To this date, the mother
has not had any legal recourse.
- It appears that the priority was corporate greed. Following
the money trail, who profited? Billions of dollars were involved: GSK received
$250-million to supply the US with "pandemic products"; Novartis
received $346-million for antigen and $348-million for adjuvant (plus orders
from 30 other countries). The total for US vaccine orders amounted to $7
billion. From where did this money come, given that the US is actually
bankrupt? Further, in a post-script to the 2009 H1N1 scare, the millions
of doses of unused vaccines will now be added to this year's flu vaccines.
- Independent and long-term research MUST be part of any
planned and truly safe vaccine program. Thirty years ago, most Americans
only had three or four vaccinations. Today, the average teen-ager already
has had more than 40 vaccinations. With poorly tested vaccines (often with
dangerous ingredients), how has this compromised the immune systems of
a generation of children? Since the Salk polio vaccine was developed 55
years ago (and even before then), there were serious concerns about the
safety of vaccinating an entire country's population. Precaution would
have eliminated possibly hundreds of thousands of cases of cancer that
were later linked to the Salk polio vaccine. Long-term research has confirmed
the link between the use of African green monkey virus, used in the Salk
polio vaccine, and increased cancers. This virus is transmitted from one
species to another: monkey to human. Unconscionably, this same African
green monkey virus was used again last year in some of the H1N1 vaccines.(12)
- The following is a list of some of the vaccine ingredients
in Gardasil: * Polysorbate 80 (also known as Tween-80): It is also used
in some brands of ibuprofen concentrated oral suspensions and as an emulsifier
in cosmetics. It is known to cause infertility/sterility, grand mal convulsions,
spontaneous abortions, and life-threatening anaphylactic shock.
- * Amorphous aluminum hydroxiphosphate sulfate: This is
an adjuvant. These are included in all vaccines to make dispersal faster
and easier in the body (but not more safely). It affects the "action
of the drug's active ingredient." It also then requires less adjuvant,
so the product can then be expanded to cover many more vaccinations with
less vaccine. This also means a faster production of vaccines, and more
money for the drug companies with less production output of vaccine. Dr.
Mercola calls this a "turbo charge" to the body's immune system.
It can "induce both behavioral and motor deficits and the loss of
motor neurons [and can cause] neuronal apoptosis [cell death] in the primary
motor cortex."(13) Adjuvants are linked to Gulf War Syndrome.
- Aluminum (part of the composition of this adjuvant) is
also known to cause cognitive dysfunction and brain damage. It is found
in many products we use daily [from deodorants to baking soda]; and it
is linked [along with mercury] to the staggering increases of dementia.
Nano-fiber-coated aluminum is also one of the ingredients used in the illegal
aerosolized toxic Chemtrails that have been sprayed on us overhead, for
the past decade.(14) This is being done to people in all NATO nations,
on a daily basis, without their permission. The US Air Force already acknowledges
using it. Chemtrails are part of more than 60 Clandestine Weather Modification
Programs being used without any public discussion. There has been no research
on the interaction of chronic daily aluminum poisoning to the human body
(to which we are all now exposed because of Chemtrails) and its interaction
with the toxicity of aluminum adjuvants and other widely used aluminum
- * Sodium borate: Insecticide. Poison. This is the main
ingredient in boric acid, used as a roach killer. Repeated use causes poisoning.
Side effects of sodium borate toxicity include: blue-green vomiting, diarrhea,
skin rashes, blisters, drowsiness, fever, low blood pressure, decreased
urine output, coma, convulsions, and twitching of muscles in face, arms,
legs, and feet.
- * Sodium chloride: refined table salt. Salt is a naturally
occurring complex mineral that balances the water inside and outside our
cells. Refined salt, sodium chloride, is chemically treated and contains
many other hidden chemicals that destroy natural salt's healing abilities.
The body can get most of its daily requirement by eating a well-balanced,
organic diet eliminating processed foods (that have added chemicals).
A good source is untreated, natural seal salt.
- * L-histidine: This is an essential amino acid (from
which histamine is derived). It is a vital necessity for tissue growth
and repair, and also the development of red blood cells. It is one of the
building blocks of protein for our bodies. Histidine comes from vegetable
and animal proteins (wheat germ, cheese, poultry, and pork). Adults produce
enough of it; children usually don't produce enough of it.
- * Water: Merck does not list what kind. Fluoridated?
Chlorinated? Both are toxic and destroy the immune system. Regular "tap"
water from public supply water systems are usually filled with numerous
- According to the public interest group Judicial Watch,
between May 2009 and September 2010, there were "records of 3,589
adverse reactions to Gardasil," including "213 cases resulting
in permanent disability, and 16 new deaths (including four suicides)."
This report also includes permanent disability from Guillain Barre Syndrome
(GBS).(15) GBS is an inflammatory brain disorder that is already known
to be associated with last year's hyped H1N1 flu vaccines put on the
market worldwide without adequate clinical trial tests. However, on July
26, 2009, the UK's Health Protection Agency sent a secret letter to 600
senior neurologists to be alert for an increase in [the] brain disorder,
Guillain Barre Syndrome."(16) GBS also was linked to the dangerous
side effects of the 1976 swine flu outbreak; and more than 80,000 people
were [then] affected by this condition, that, in essence, could be called
'flu vaccine syndrome.'"(17)
- Tom Finton, president of Judicial Watch, is on record
as saying: "To say Gardasil has a suspect safety record is a big understatement.
These reports are troubling and show that the FDA and other public health
authorities may be asleep at the switch. In the meantime, the public relations
push for Gardasil by Merck and politicians on Capitol Hill continues. No
one should require this vaccine for young children."(18)
- A second HPV vaccine, Cervarix, is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.
It has been licensed in the UK, Australia, and the European Union. In the
US, it was approved by the FDA on October 16, 2009. According to London's
The Guardian, "Britain is the only country to have opted to use Cervarix,
rather than a rival brandGardasil." The Guardian reported one death,
in this same article, of a 14 year-old girl who died shortly after receiving
this vaccine injection.(19)
- Cervarix is given in three doses over a six-month period.
The adjuvant, ASO4 is one of the ingredients. This is the company's propriety
squalene adjuvant. Squalene is a natural oil found in sharks [mostly in
their livers] and humans. The American Journal of Pathology (2000) reported
that rats injected with squalene triggered "chronic, immune mediated
joint-specific inflammation." i.e., rheumatoid arthritis. How will
this vaccine affect people who already have any immune inflammation; or,
will it cause untold new cases (lupus or chronic fatigue)? Squalene adjuvant
is linked to the thousands of military who have contracted Gulf War Syndrome
and have suffered irreparable auto-immune damage, including lupis, multiple
sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and ADD.(20)
- Cervarix side effects include: headache, pain and swelling
at injection site; fever; diarrhea; itching and skin rashes; joint pain;
nausea and vomiting; dizziness; respiratory tract infection.(21)
- As practiced today, Western medicine is based on pharmaceutical
solutions, due to its enormous corporate ties. These ties also include
organizations (public and private) and agencies (such as World Health Organization,
Food and Drug Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency) that
once were supposed to protect public health; but now, behind closed doors
and secret meetings, they do the bidding of the corporations. There is
very little independent research being conducted, while most research is
funded by the drug companies. They have a vested interest in not reporting
adverse reactions. Citizens do not fit into any of this, except as consumers.
- Cures, though very important, are only one part of the
answers we urgently need. We also need doctors who are well informed, better
educated about environmental links to illness and disease, and actually
read and research drug ingredients before prescribing pharmaceuticals to
uniformed patients who rely on and trust their doctors. We no longer
can take for granted that doctors are either well informed about the enormous
environmental links to illnesses, or that they have the sorely needed medical
and environmental training with which they can make correct diagnoses.
This is especially true now, with illnesses being manufactured in bioweapons
labs or geo-engineered toxic chemicals being sprayed from planes and let
lose on unsuspecting citizens.
- The major issues rarely addressed, but essential to our
well being and safety, are PREVENTION and PRECAUTION.(22) We also need
to hold the polluters accountable. Over the last 10 years, more than 30
years of US environmental laws have been gutted, while corporations are
getting huge tax breaks. This has made it increasingly easy for corporations
to poison our air, soil, and water. The staggering rates of cancers (even
for small children), auto-immune, cardiac and pulmonary diseases, and now
often multiple illnesses affect millions of people.
- With more than 100,000 chemicals on the market, mostly
untested for human safety, and a horrific legacy of invisible but highly
dangerous environmental hazards surrounding our every move, corporate accountability
is way overdue. This no longer is an issue to be resolved by Congress or
any other governmental agency [often with no legal or Constitutional authority,
where officials have been appointed to their positions, not voted into
- With a constant revolving door between industry and government
jobs, plus corporate legal "personhood," there is no longer protection
for citizens. The criminality of the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe is
just the latest heart-breaking crisis showing the power corporations have
to destroy an entire ecosystem (human and all other living creatures) without
- We need massive and peaceful grassroots movements to
make our planet our only home habitable and safe for all living
creatures. The seminal works of Rachel Carson (written almost 50 years
ago) and Dr. Theo Colburn et al.'s book, on hormone disruption, "Our
Stolen Future," are ignored. Not by us; but by the corporate, multi-national
- Without really safe and precautionary corporate practices,
our collective health will keep on deteriorating, while out-of-control
corporate greed and profits continue unabated. Our well being and safety
are not part of any corporate ethos. We are all expendable for the corporate
bottom line: profit. For the third quarter of 2010, Forbes magazine reported
that Merck, one of the world's largest drug companies, "posted a net
income of $342 million."(23) There was no mention in this article
of any possible deaths and/or injuries from their Gardasil vaccine.
- A recent online article suggested that this HPV Gardasil
vaccine might prevent 13,000 American women from getting cervical cancer.
(In the UK, the figure is about 1,000.) The article made no mention of
any dangerous side effects or deaths.(24)
- In my own 15 years of independent research for my book,
"The Uterine Crisis," there are numerous references cited regarding
the extreme dangers (including a long history of our being used as uninformed,
experimental lab subjects) posed by the relationships among the pharmaceutical
corporations, governmental agencies, and medicine.
- Parental rights are very important. The Precautionary
Principle, rarely mentioned in any US media or put into corporate practice,
is vital with untested and/or poorly tested vaccines with toxic ingredients.
The Pap Smear and other tests are available to screen for cervical cancer.
In a 2009 article, epidemiologist and physician, Dr. Peter B. Bach, wrote:
"[t]he Pap Smear, which has been around for more than 70 years, is
a better prevention approach that Gardasil will ever be.
- Because of it, cervical caner death rates in the US fell
by 74% between 1955 and 1992, and continue to fall by about 4% each year."(25)
But the larger issues are never addressed. This would put the pharmaceutical
corporations and many university research programs out of business.
- It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that patients
(i.e., today's medical consumers) become well educated and informed before
they proceed with any vaccinations, injections, surgery, or other medical
procedures. We can no longer continue on automatic pilot with crucial medical
decisions left to doctors and other medical professionals who are uninformed.
