HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine - The Facts

The HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine is the vaccine that pharmaceutical companies and Governments want all young school girls, from the age of 11 to have. HPV (human papillomavirus) is a virus that is present in most cases of Cervical Cancer and is sexually transmitted.

However, the HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine is not a cancer vaccine or a cure. It is just a preventative vaccine for a virus that may cause Cervical Cancer. It is only effective against 2 strains of HPV, which cause 70% of Cervical Cancers. There are about 130 types of HPV virus in total.

The biggest concern is that the vaccine is relatively new with no long term studies having been done. Add to that the horror stories coming out of the USA from parents whose daughters have been disabled or even died as a result of having the vaccine and you have some serious questions about whether this vaccine is in fact needed or indeed safe.

Just read the comments at the end of this “CDC Report Stirs Controversy For Merck’s Gardasil Vaccine” and you get a pretty good idea.

Cervical Cancer Rates

You would think that Cervical Cancer must be so common and prevalent and almost epidemic that such a vaccine is pushed upon us so strongly.  Wrong.

Cervical Cancer accounts for about 2% of all cancers worldwide. 80% of these (that’s 80% of 2%) are in low income countries. If you live in the USA, UK or Australia for instance, the incidence and death rate is almost 0%.

Pharmaceutical and Government Marketing will only quote you the worldwide figure as your local figure is not so convincing. There are 300,000 deaths a year, worldwide from Cervical Cancer.  That figure is not relevant to you, where you live, unless you are in the third world.

More people die worldwide from drowning, falling or in road traffic accidents than from Cervical Cancer. Leading Causes Of Mortality In The World

Since the introduction of the Pap Smear in 1941, Cervical Cancer mortality has decreased by 74%. The test is considered the most successful cancer screening technique ever discovered.

More than 90% of Cervical Cancer cases are curable if the disease is detected and treated early enough. Yet, up to 11% of American women still do not have a Pap Smear.

Extending the screening program would do the trick, not a vaccine.

Cost and Motives

The Gardasil HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine will cost YOU more than any other vaccine in history to buy ($360).

When Merck introduced their vaccine they lobbied to have it made mandatory (forced on you). Now, what were their motives for this? Not to stop a raging epidemic that is for sure; to make money of course.

This has to be one of the most stupid moves a pharmaceutical company has ever made. They showed their hand and true motives in the process.

There was major backlash against their lobbying of course and they had to stop it. The only state to make it mandatory was Texas where it has been suggested the governor has links to big Pharma.

What THE expert says

Dr Diane Harper is a scientist, physician, professor and the director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire.

She was contracted by Merck (makers of the vaccine) to head the clinical trials for “Gardasil” because of her credentials; 20 years of HPV vaccine research and development.

She is internationally recognized as a pioneer in the field, Harper has been studying HPV and a possible vaccine for several of the more than 100 strains of HPV for 20 years – most of her adult life. You don’t get a better authority than this and the drug company contracted her to be in charge of the trials.

Even she says;

  • There is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue.
  • Giving it to 11 year olds is a great big public health experiment. All of her trials have been with subjects ages 15-25. In her own practice, Harper believes the ideal way of administering the new vaccine is to offer it to women ages 18 and up. At their first inoculation, they should be tested for the presence of HPV in their system.
  • The idea is to inoculate them before they become sexually active, since HPV can be spread through sexual intercourse. But that idea no matter how good the intentions behind it, is not the right thinking, Harper said. The zealousness to inoculate all these younger girls may very well backfire at the very time they need protection most, she said. “This vaccine should not be for 11 year old girls”, she reiterated. “It’s not been tested in little girls for efficacy (effectiveness) at 11, these girls don’t get cervical cancer – they won’t know for 25 years if they will get cervical cancer.
  • “Also the public needs to know that with vaccinated women and women who still get Pap smears (which test for abnormal cells that can lead to cancer), some of them will still get cervical cancer”. The reason she said, is because the vaccine does not protect against all HPV viruses that cause cancer – it’s only effective against two that cause about 70 percent of cervical cancers.
  • For months, Harper said, she’s been trying to convince major television and print media to listen to her and tell the facts about this vaccine. “But no one will print it”, she said
  • It is not a cancer vaccine or cure. It is a prophylactic – preventative – vaccine for a virus that can cause cancer
  • It is not 100 percent effective against all HPVs. It is 100 percent effective against two types that cause 70 per cent of cervical cancers
  • It is important to note that the vaccine has not been tested for efficacy (effectiveness) in younger girls, she said. Instead the effectiveness was “bridged” from the older girls to the younger ones – meaning that Merck assumed that because it proved effective in the older girls, it also would be effective in the younger ones.
  • Merck was required to put together a database on the effectiveness in children before Gardasil was approved, Harper said. But instead, the company put together four studies that “are not necessarily representative, and may not even have enough numbers to determine what they need to know”.

Plus, the vaccine is only effective for 5-7 years! What’s the point of getting it when you’re 11, you need it most when you become sexually active.

It’s just not worth the risk of damage to take a vaccine that is not necessary in the first place.

They are testing this vaccine on our daughters; the research has not been done

If you are not sure, before you vaccinate ask your local GP, medical center / authority for research studies done on 11 year old girls with Gardasil; there aren’t any. Say no to the Gardasil HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine!
