HPV Vaccine

RFK, Jr.: Gardasil “The Science” Video and Other Facts

Book: The HPV Vaccine On Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed

  • HPV vaccines have never been proven to prevent cervical cancer or any other cancer.

  • Even if they were 100 percent effective, which they are not, HPV vaccines do not prevent all cases of cervical cancer.

  • None of the participants in the clinical trials received a true saline placebo.

  • Merck told young female clinical trial subjects that the vaccine had already been proven safe and the the placebo was saline.

  • The manufacturers never tested HPV vaccines on human fertility.

  • Evidence shows that certain ingredients in HPV vaccines, including sodium borate (also know as borax, a cleaning agent), may have negative effects on fertility.

  • The manufacturers never tested HPV vaccines to discover if they might cause cancer.

  • The Gardasil clinical trials used a new metric, “New Medical Conditions,” as a way to claim that serious health problems after vaccination were unrelated to the vaccine or aluminum-containing fauxcebo.

  • Although 11-12 year olds are the target population for this vaccine (and it is approved for children as young as nine), the vast majority of clinical trials subject were considerably older.

  • Despite US government assertion that the HPV vaccine is safe, the federal compensation program for vaccine injury has paid out millions of dollars in damages for HPV vaccine injuries.

  • All participants in the Gardasil clinical trials who received a “placebo” rather than the vaccine were encouraged to receive HPV vaccines at the end of the clinical trial period.

  • Lawsuits have been filed against Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and government health agencies around the world, including in the US, India, Colombia, Japan, Spain, and France.

  • The US government earns royalties from Merck and GSK for licensing HPV vaccine technology.

  • The HPV vaccine sage began just as Merck was trying to turn the page on it’s criminal conduct with Vioxx, it’s failed painkiller drug. - Source: The HPV Vaccine On Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed

The series of 3 Gardasil shots I was given between 2008-2009 was granted Fast Track approval by the FDA after only a six month review process. Approved before it had shown any clinical benefit to people.

"Using a poisonous placebo in the control group allowed Merck to mask the cascade of injuries suffered by girls in the Gardasil group during the clinical trials. Merck’s own data showed that administering the Gardasil vaccine to girls who had previous exposure to HPV actually raised their risk of developing precancerous lesions (or worse) by almost 45%." https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/court-hears-gardasil-science-and-moves-forward/

Too fast or not too fast: the FDA's approval of Merck's HPV vaccine Gardasil

"6 ADVERSE REACTIONS: Overall Summary of Adverse Reactions:
Headache, fever, nausea, and dizziness; and local injection site reactions (pain, swelling, erythema, pruritus, and bruising) occurred after administration with GARDASIL.

tonic-clonic movements and other seizure-like activity, has been reported following vaccination with GARDASIL and may result in falling with injury; observation for 15 minutes after administration is recommended. [See Warnings and Precautions (5.1).]

Aluminum Toxicity:

Aluminum in the body has never be proven safe. Gardasil 9 contains 500 mcg of aluminum. 

Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, poses this important question:
“Is it ethical to put young women at risk of death or a disabling autoimmune disease at a pre-adolescent age for a vaccine that has not yet prevented a single case of cervical cancer, a disease that may develop 20-30 years after exposure to HPV, when the same can be prevented with regular Pap screening which carries no risks.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Uu3iWA1UWw
