Part 6Gardasil: Does it Heal or Does it Kill?
Gary Null, PhD and Nancy Ashley, VMD, MSNovember 2, 2011
The Gardasil vaccine against human papillomavirus has been much profiled in the news recentlyand the news isn¶t good. Despite continued incidents of serious, life-altering adverse reactions,including paralysis and death, and despite questionable efficacy and safety studies that allowedthis vaccine to come to market in the first place, the push to force the Gardasil vaccine on our children has been relentless and seems to be picking up speed. The following is a review of themore significant and far reaching stories that surfaced, mostly under the radar of the general public, during the past four weeks.
October 9: The Gardasil Bill
California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law bill AB 499 which takes away a parent¶s rightto make medical decisions for their child by allowing children as young as 12 to consent to theGardasil vaccine as a way to fight sexually transmitted diseases.
1
Since children in Californiaalready had the right to seek ³diagnosis and treatment´ of medical care, and even abortionwithout parental consent, this bill seemed solely designed to sell Gardasil by adding the technicalchange to existing law of ³consenting to preventative services.´
2
How are children supposed to be able to research the safety and efficacy of a vaccine when it is a formidable challenge for theaverage adult to wade through the minefield of hype and marketing to ferret out the truth? Andwhen have children ever demonstrated the capacity to resist advertising? Intense marketing pressure by Merck will persuade them that they will be saving their lives by getting the vaccine.It is unlikely that this full court press against the freedom to make decisions for our children willstop with California, so be prepared for a state by state fight as we continue to watch our rights being eroded by corporate influence.
Oct. 19: More reports of serious adverse effects following Gardasil.
Judicial Watch was able to obtain new documents from the FDA regarding the details of adverseevents following vaccination with Gardasil. These include 26 deaths between September 1,2010, and September 15, 2011, as well as incidents of seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis,speech problems, short term memory loss, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
3
The CDC¶s responseto concerns raised by Judicial Watch was the usual denial: Vaccine Adverse Events ReportingSystem (VAERS ) data cannot be used to prove that an adverse event was caused by a vaccine because the information is ³anecdotal´ rather than from a randomized double blind, placebo
 
controlled study.
4
The CDC therefore does not draw any conclusions from these reports, andcontinues to recommend HPV vaccination for the prevention ³of most types of cervical cancer,´despite the fact that there is no evidence that HPV vaccination prevents cervical cancer at all!With shocking mendacity, the CDC concludes their response by stating that, ³Any problemsdetected with these vaccines will be reported to health officials, healthcare providers, and the public and needed action will be taken to ensure the public¶s health and safety.´
5
One wonderswhat would prompt them to take this needed action since they maintain that crippling illness anddeath caused by Gardasil are merely a coincidence.
Oct. 25: Boys also to be routinely vaccinated with Gardasil.
The CDC¶s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices unanimously recommended that 11 ± 12 year old boys should be routinely vaccinated with Gardasil to prevent cancer and genitalwarts despite the lack of convincing data to show that HPV-related cancer is even prevalent inmen or that vaccinating boys will prevent cervical cancer in girls, or that the vaccine can preventgenital warts.
6
While the vaccination of boys with Gardasil was previously rejected as not beingcost effective, presumably the poor rate of vaccination among girls is causing Merck to push for the opening of other markets in which to sell their expensive vaccine.
 
Dr. Anne Schuchat director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, actually stated during a CDC press briefing that, ³There¶s been a disappointing uptake (i.e. vaccination rate) among teen girls.HPV vaccination of males offers an opportunity to decrease the burden of HPV-related disease in both males and females.´
Oct. 27: Industry-funded research finds yet another new use for Gardasil -- gay men.
The New England Journal of Medicine published a Merck-funded study entitled, ³HPV vaccineagainst anal HPV infection and anal intraepithelial neoplasia,´ which ostensibly demonstrates theeffectiveness of Gardasil in preventing anal cancer caused by men having sex with men, but, likesimilar studies in women, falls far short of proving its point.
7
This biased and poorly-designedstudy seems to have been done simply to promote the Gardasil vaccine to yet another targetgroup. So get ready for a marketing onslaught of Gardasil ads directed towards adulthomosexuals.In order to understand why it is not in the best interest of our daughters and sons to promote theuse of Gardasil, let¶s recap some of the major points from Part I of our original investigativeseries on vaccines, ³A Case of Contamination: Growing Concern over the Safety and Efficacy of Merck¶s Gardasil HPV Vaccine.
 
 
W
hy the Gardasil vaccine was unnecessary in the first place
y
 
HPV usually clears on its own: 70% of infections are gone in 1 year and 90% are gone in2 years.
8
 
y
 
Cervical cancer is an uncommon consequence of HPV infections in women: CDC andWHO estimate that only 4,100 women in the US die of cervical cancer annually,compared with 69,000 women who die of lung cancer annually. Progression fromcervical lesions to invasive cancer is a slow process, and can take up to 20 years. If detected early through regular pap tests and managed promptly, survival rates for cervicalcancer are over 90%.
9
y
 
Of the women who die from cervical cancer, the CDC estimates that half of these deathswill occur in women who have never had a pap test and an additional 10% in women whohave not had a pap test in the past 5 years.
10
y
 
Cervical cancer has other causes aside from the human papillomavirus, and is notexclusively sexually transmitted.
11
 
y
 
An annual pap test has reduced the occurrence of cervical cancer significantly over the past 40 years and continues to be the best defense against cervical cancer.
12
 
W
hy is the Gardasil vaccine not advisable?Lack of Efficacy
y
 
Gardasil is not a cancer vaccine, it is a virus vaccine. Gardasil contains only four strainsof human papillomavirus. Two viral strains, 6 and 11, cause genital warts, while strains16 and 18, can go on to cause cervical cancer. There are 15 strains of human papillomavirus that have been identified so far which can lead to cancer, but Gardasilonly has the capacity to target two of these.
13
 
y
 
A woman can still get cervical cancer despite the vaccine, and still needs an annual paptest to protect herself from cervical cancer.
14
 
y
 
According to Merck, Gardasil only demonstrated efficacy for 2. 5 years with respect toHPV 6, 11, and 18, and 3.5 years with HPV 16, after which antibodies wanesignificantly. If a girl is vaccinated at 12, the vaccine will have worn off by the time sheis 17.
