It appears that women ages 27 to 45 in Canada are being subjected to the same type of Gardasil® advertising campaign adolescents and their families are in the United States. The full page advertisements are running continuously in magazine supplements in Sunday newspapers north and south of the border.

‘Now women ages 27 to 45 can benefit from Gardasil®’. Say what? Benefit from what? ‘Talk to your health care professional today.’ Now, I am not sure of what is going on in Canada – but in the U.S., healthcare professionals have nearly become pharmaceutical sales representatives, and women cannot go in for a doctor’s exam without being pressured to go on the birth control pill or get vaccinated. In fact, a stamp is now placed on a patient’s chart to remind doctor’s if the adolescent is in the process of getting the three-shot Gardasil® series or has been ‘counseled and refused’ vaccination.1

According to the U.S. FDA, there is no health benefit to getting Gardasil® for women ages 27 to 45. Then why is the vaccine being offered to older women in Canada?

Only the Facts Ma’am

In April 2011, after a long awaited decision the U.S. FDA ruled against Merck’s supplemental biologics license application (sBLA) for an indication to use GARDASIL [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16 and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant] in women ages 27-45. This was Merck’s 4th request to expand Gardasil® use to an older population of women.

In a brief statement Merck stated that: “An indication for adult women was not granted; instead, the Limitations of Use and Effectiveness for GARDASIL® was updated to state that GARDASIL® has not been demonstrated to prevent HPV-related CIN 2/3 or worse in women older than 26 years of age.”1

Within the same month Merck issued a press release announcing Health Canada had approved use of Gardasil® for women ages 27 – 45 for preventing cervical cancer, vulvar and vaginal cancers, precancerous lesions and genital warts caused by HPV strains 6, 11, 16, 18. Health Canada was surprisingly silent on the HPV vaccine issue and did not release a statement of their own.2

This should have been the first red flag for Canadian women. According to Pharmalot, “Although Canada is a smaller market than the U.S., the approval is a notable step for Merck, which has been counting on a larger demographic target to boost sorely needed vaccine revenue.”3

The needed revenue is due to the decreasing uptake and non-completion of the three-shot series in the U.S. Health insurance records have shown that among 19 to 26-year-old women who received their first Gardasil shot, the number of 19 to 26-year-old women completing the 3-shot series dropped from 44 percent in 2006 to 23 percent in 2009. A similar decline was seen in the pre-teen demographic where 57 percent of girls in 2006 completed the vaccine series, compared to 21 percent in 2009.4

Perhaps another notable step for Merck will be to go back to the FDA with data from Canada to prove that Gardasil® can be demonstrated to prevent cervical cancer in this older demographic. This is a highly likely scenario, since the CDC has stated: “While there are well-established cancer registries in the United States, it will take decades before the impact of the vaccine on cervical cancer is observed.”5

What is potentially wrong with Gardasil® use in older women?

The CDC estimates approximately 20 million Americans are currently infected with HPV. Another six million people become newly infected each year. HPV is so common that at least 50% of sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives. 6

Gardasil® was not designed to treat pre-existing HPV infections – and therefore it was tested on women who were not exposed to HPV. This type of pre-screening prior to vaccination is not available to medical consumers in the U.S. or in Canada and was actually discouraged by the FDA.

This alone gives rise to a major concern because women are mostly unaware they have been exposed to HPV. In addition, women who are not aware they have the virus but get the vaccine could suffer outbreaks of genital warts or abnormal precancerous lesions. Both conditions require extensive treatment. 7

Why is this happening? A chart in the May 2006 FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee’s report clearly shows that women who have been previously exposed to HPV and who are vaccinated with Gardasil® have a vaccine efficacy rate of -44.6%, and -32.5% post Cervarix, placing those vaccinated at an increased risk of developing cervical cancer, as well as suffering from other adverse reactions. 8

According to American Cancer Society estimates, deaths from cervical cancer fell by 74% between 1955 and 1992, mostly due to Pap smear screening. The rate continues to fall 4% annually without Gardasil®. Hopefully, there will not be an increase in cervical rates due to the HPV vaccines. That unfortunately will remain to be seen, although reports of cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer are being reported by young women post vaccination.

One thing is clear – women are the only ones who can protect their pelvic goldmines from exploitation. Meanwhile, unsuspecting women of all ages, all over the world are receiving a vaccine that will no doubt be become known as the great travesty of the 21st century. Our sisters in Canada need to be paying attention to what is happening in the U.S. before they partake in what may be a potential medical experiment with dire consequences for them and more profit for Merck.

Will India be First Country to Revoke Marketing Licenses for HPV Vaccines?

Will India be First Country to Revoke Marketing Licenses for HPV Vaccines?

A petition currently before the Supreme Court of India alleges that the Drugs Controller of India issued licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix without adequate research on safety as directed by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare.

Petition number 558/2012, filed by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao, seeks to resolve this and several other issues by asking the Supreme Court of India to rescind the licenses for marketing and administration of HPV vaccines, make provisions to identify and treat any girls left with chronic health problems and/or autoimmune disorders after their participation in HPV vaccine trials, blacklist the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), and allow no other foreign agencies to have a field presence in India.

Will India be the first country in the world to revoke the marketing licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix? Will the Supreme Court of India move to protect the health and welfare of their young citizens, or the interests of the HPV vaccine manufacturers? Will PATH and similar agencies be banned from operating in India?
Will the victims of adverse reactions to HPV vaccines be located and treated? We can only hope these questions will be answered when the final hearing will take place.

A top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys.

“We’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.” The whistleblower alleges criminal wrongdoing of his supervisors, and he expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data.

The Cancer Industry is Too Prosperous to Allow a Cure

The Cancer Industry is Too Prosperous to Allow a Cure

We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.

The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.

John Thomas explains to us why the current cancer industry prospers while treating cancer, but cannot afford to cure it.

Is there any more doubt that acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the most dangerous over-the-counter drug ever allowed to be sold legally without a prescription? Consider the facts:

Acetaminophen kills almost 500 people a year due to acute liver failure.
Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers – more than 100,000/year.
Acetaminophen accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits, 2,600 hospitalizations.
Acetaminophen poisoning causes nearly 50% of all acute liver failure in the United States.
Acetaminophen is linked to fatal skin reactions.
Acetaminophen causes a two-fold increased risk of blood cancer.
Acetaminophen can cause an increase in autism, attention deficit with hyperactivity, and asthma when used with vaccines.

And yet, any child can walk into a drug store or grocery store and buy it like candy. Alliance for Natural Health brings us the latest bad news on Tylenol:

A study just published in JAMA Pediatrics finds that Tylenol (acetaminophen) taken by women during their pregnancy may raise the risk of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and similar disorders in their children up to 40%—with the risk increasing the more acetaminophen the mother takes.
