HPV Gardasil Vaccine Proves Lethal - 47 Girls Now Dead

Written By: Michelle, The Green-Mother

The whole “vaccine issue” discussion has come up again in our home. I have been reading frightening reports lately about the scarey effects of Gardasil. Gardasil is a vaccine created by Merck and Co. In 2006 it was approved by the FDA for use in women as a vaccination against the HPV (human papillomavirus).

Facts About Gardasil:

  • A class-action lawsuit has been filed in Australia against drug maker Merck by a young woman who suffered autoimmune and neurological health problems following injections with the HPV vaccine, Gardasil
  • Multiple-sclerosis-like symptoms and neurological complications, including seizures, paralysis and speech problems, are being reported by increasing numbers of girls and women following Gardasil vaccination
  • Between May 2009 and September 2010, 16 deaths occurred after Gardasil vaccination, along with 789 reports of “serious” adverse reactions; 213 cases of permanent disability; and 25 cases of Guillain Barre Syndrome. Between September 1, 2010 and September 15, 2011, 26 deaths were reported
  • There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs) and Gardasil protects against only 4 types but 90 percent of women naturally clear HPV from their bodies within two years, at which point cervical cells return to normal
  • The cervical cancer death rate is very low in the United States (3 per 100,000), as this cancer is usually entirely curable when detected early enough through PAP screenings, which have reduced cervical cancer rates by 70 percent in the U.S. since PAP screens have become a routine part of women’s health care.

How do I feel about Gardasil? At this moment, I have not formed an opinion. What I do know is that the above facts present as scarey. The vaccine issue comes up frequently. Everyone seems to have one opinion or another concerning this. I have observed over the years that some have strong opinions to vaccinate for everything that is available. I have also heard others say that they will not vaccinate for anything. Where do I stand in all of this? I like to think that I stand somewhere in between. What does this mean exactly? Standing somewhere “in between” means that I am not against all vaccines. I have an excellent relationship with our pediatrician. I trust her. She never attempts to “force” or “intimidate” me into vaccinating my boys. Instead, she educates me, and gives me her recommendations. In my opinion, this is the type of relationship we should all have with our children’s doctors. My boys have received some vaccines that I felt were important. I have also refused many vaccines over the years. Have I made the best choices concerning this matter? I can honestly tell you, I am not 100 percent sure. I have my days when I feel confident about the choices I have made. On some other days, I don’t feel as confident. To conclude, concerning any vaccination issues that you may have, the most important factor is having a trusting relationship with your child’s pediatrician. Together, you can both select which vaccines are necessary versus those that are not. A good doctor will educate you, guide you, and make recommendations. Never should you feel bullied or intimidated. If this is how you are feeling, it may be time to search for a new doctor for your child. Luckily, I live in Canada. We have a choice to refuse vaccines.
