Praise the Lord!

That Catholic School Board I wrote about yesterday decided to allow the HPV vaccine.

Reason triumphs.

Satan laughs.

Are you convinced that this vaccine is going to do what it says it's going to do and there will be no harmful side-effects? Because this vaccine thing came out of nowhere all of a sudden and with a whole bunch of scare-tactics attached which makes me, the mother of a teenage girl, very suspicious and makes me want to find out a hell of a lot more before blindly injecting lord-knows-what into my child, hoping that the multinational pharmaceutical companies who are doling this stuff out are doing it out of the goodness of their hearts and not just because they've discovered yet another way to suck some money out of the sheep-like public. What better cash cow than threatening parents with the health of their children?

Yes it works. I've read the Guidelines for the HPV Vaccine put out by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This is the group that is pushing for it, not any drug companies but the leaders in healthcare in Canada. There is even information on their homepage (http://sogc.medical.org/) about it that I think more people should read. Although I'm not sure how often they update their website so if this is some time in the future and you're reading an old post here the links may have changed or moved off the frontpage.

The thing is it isn't about the health of your children it's about the health of adults. A whole lot of people live with HPV without any adverse affects, however, 80% of cervical cancer cases in women are directly related to HPV. The vaccine is set up to eliminate 80% of cervical cancer cases - not in girls, but in adult women.

Oh Please. How na�ve can you be? The pharmaceutical company, Merck currently has a monopoly on Gardasil, the HPV vaccine and they've been lobbying and funding this scare campaign through 3rd parties (like the medical community). Until a competitior comes along with another form of this vaccine, Merck will rake in billions --hence the big rush to sell the vaccine. Here are some facts:
1,637 adverse reactions to the vaccine have been reported in the US, including 3 deaths. The US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is showing considerable serious injury from this vaccine, especially neurological and immune dysfunction. Included are reports of collapse, paralysis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, dizziness, vomiting, rash, syncope, seizures and headache.
The vaccine provides protection 70% of the time against the HPV strains that causes about 1 in 75 U.S. female cancer deaths a year.
The incidence and death rate of that cancer, that of the cervix, has been steadily dropping for decades. HPV infection is not a nationally notifiable disease in Canada and, to date, no population-based studies have been published." A study estimating the American population prevalence of HPV infection published in the Feb 28, 2007 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that only 3.4% of women aged 14�59 yrs were infected with one of the HPV types in Gardasil; only 2% were infected with one of the two types that are in the vaccine and are associated with cervical cancer.
It takes about 30 years on average for those few HPV infections that do cause cancer to reach the point where they are life-threatening, during which time all of those women should be receiving regular Pap smears that would catch the cancer from HPV - or other causes - in its tracks.
HPV is usually benign: The March 21, 2007 article on fwdailynews.com states: "75% or more of girls and women may test positive for HPV at some points in their lives. But, in adolescents, in 75�90% of those cases, the virus clears up on its own within 8�12 months, including those that may be cancer-causing".
FDA did not approve Gardasil based on the vaccine's actual prevention of cervical cancer but on the prevention of precancerous lesions
As of April 2007, Gardasil vaccine has never been proven to decrease the actual incidence of cervical cancer. (See article in Cancer Monthly.)
The Gardasil monograph states: "efficacy of the vaccine in this age group [9�13 yr olds] has not been demonstrated".
So why are you injecting your daughters with this potentially toxic cocktail of chemicals?
