Last month (May, 2018) we published a report from the vaccine marketing trade publication, Fierce Pharma, that Merck's sales this year were beating financial forecasts, primarily due to its entrance into the China market for its top-selling Gardasil HPV vaccine. Fierce Pharma reported at that time that the Gardasil vaccine was fast-tracked for approval into the China market: "Late last month, the Chinese FDA granted Gardasil 9 a conditional approval only nine days into a review." Now, Fierce Pharma is reporting that Gardasil's acceptance into the China market has produced instant billionaires.
In Japan, young women and girls suffering from severe chronic generalized pain following vaccination with Merck’s Gardasil® or GSK’s Cervarix®, have organized and are speaking out. The issues are being debated at public hearings, at which scientific presentations have been made by independent medical experts who validated the women’s suffering with documented evidence of the severe nature of the pain related to the HPV vaccine. Such public debates do not take place where vaccine stakeholders are in full control of vaccine safety information. (Like in the U.S., for example.) Following a public hearing (February 2014), at which scientific evidence was presented by independent scientists, the Japanese government, not only rescinded its recommendation that girls receive the HPV vaccine, but established guidelines and special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the vaccine. It is a scenario that Merck, GSK, and vaccine stakeholders globally are extremely anxious to suppress.
The pharmaceutical marketing trade publication, Fierce Pharma, announced this month (May 2018) that Merck has beat Wall Street expectations for their Gardasil vaccine sales during the first quarter of 2018, achieving 24% growth with $660 million for the HPV vaccine. The report notes that sales in the U.S. are declining, attributing the decline in sales to the CDC decision to reduce their recommendation of the Gardasil vaccine to be only two doses, instead of three. Nothing is mentioned about declining public opinion regarding Gardasil, nor the numerous lawsuits against the company outside the U.S. The increase in sales for Gardasil is attributed to their entrance into the China market. The original vaccine won Chinese approval last year, while late last month the Chinese FDA granted Gardasil 9 a conditional approval only nine days into a review.
It is no secret that huge conflicts of interest exist between vaccine promoters and vaccine makers. Pediatrician and vaccine developer Paul Offit, for example, who is one of the nation’s leading promoters of mandatory use of government recommended vaccines, holds a $1.5 million research chair at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, funded in part by Merck. Julie Gerberding left her post as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where she oversaw the creation of national vaccine policies, to head Merck vaccines. Former Texas governor Rick Perry recommended state-wide inoculation of all 11- and 12-year-old girls with Merck’s Gardasil vaccine after his chief of staff left to work at Merck. Just as disturbing are the millions of dollars that officials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) dole out to academic institutions and vaccine manufacturers to improve vaccine technology, find new, lucrative markets and boost vaccine marketability—functions that guarantee the profitability of corporations, but do not always ensure the well being of taxpayers, the public and patients. Today, taxpayer-supported research to develop new drugs and vaccines is voraciously patented by universities and drug companies for outsized Wall Street profits when the research rightfully belongs to taxpayers. Development of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines is a case in point. The initial research was funded by the NIH, National Cancer Institute, University of Rochester, Georgetown University and the University of Queensland, which licensed them to Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. In 2015, Merck made $1.9 billion on its Gardasil franchise.
A new study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics examined cervical cancer rates among women in Sweden and discovered a link between increased cervical cancer rates among women aged 20-49 during a two-year period between 2014 and 2015, corresponding to increased HPV vaccination rates in this population group, years earlier, when mass HPV vaccinations started in Sweden. Women above the age of 50, during this two-year period, saw no significant cervical cancer increase, as they probably would not have been vaccinated with the HPV vaccine. Since the study casts doubt on the efficacy of the HPV vaccine, and, in fact, links the vaccine to increased cancer rates, it is highly unlikely you will read about this in the U.S. corporate-sponsored media, where nothing negative about the blockbuster HPV Gardasil vaccine is allowed.
Global Joint Statement from 5 Nations Meeting in Japan Exposes Injuries and Discrimination Against HPV Vaccine Victims
The dangers of the Gardasil HPV vaccine are routinely censored in the U.S., where the official medical and government position on the vaccine is that it is "safe and effective." Enjoying legal immunity in the U.S. for any harm suffered as a result of the Gardasil vaccine, Merck and the U.S. government are seeking to increase the market for the vaccine. News outside the U.S., however, is very different. Some governments, such as Japan, no longer recommend the vaccine, and there are lawsuits suing for damages resulting from the HPV vaccines in numerous countries. In March of 2018 an international symposium was held at the University of Tokyo and attended by representatives from the UK, Ireland, Japan, Colombia and Spain to discuss the needs of victims who have suffered, and in some cases died, as a result of the HPV vaccine. They discussed both the medical and legal needs of HPV vaccine victims. Representatives from these 5 nations, which include scientists and medical professionals, have issued a joint "Global Statement" regarding the victims of HPV vaccines that you are not likely to read in the U.S. corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media. In this "Global Statement," experts from these 5 nations are calling to "Suspend recommendation of HPV vaccines for routine immunization, until a safer system is established ensuring that serious side effects are avoided," and to "refrain from actions that discriminate against, or slander HPV vaccine victims." We republish the press release and Global Statement in full here at Health Impact News.
Pharmaceutical giant, Merck, is facing charges of fraud in lawsuits filed in U.S. courts regarding their vaccine products. This is important information for the public to know, given the fact that the ever-growing vaccine market is expected to exceed $70 billion within the next few years, and that many states are trying to pass legislation to mandate vaccines without informed consent, all in the name of "the greater good" for public health. Federal government agencies tasked with protecting public health, along with the corporate "mainstream" media, which reportedly receives up to 70% of its advertising revenue from pharmaceutical companies, continue to censor any negative information regarding vaccines that could affect sales. And since one cannot sue a pharmaceutical company for damages or deaths due to vaccines in the United States, where they enjoy legal immunity, it is rare that a pharmaceutical company faces a day in court related to corruption or fraud for bad vaccine products. Therefore, one needs to turn to either the alternative media such as Health Impact News, or the foreign media outside the U.S., to learn about the dangers of vaccines, and the corruption behind many of them. There are currently two major federal lawsuits against Merck that are being litigated in U.S. courts: a whistleblower lawsuit from former Merck scientists claiming fraud regarding the MMR vaccine, which has been in the courts for eight years now, and a lawsuit against the Gardasil vaccine claiming fraud from a 16-year-old girl who allegedly suffered Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) after receiving the Gardasil vaccine.
The Alliance for Natural Health, USA division, has just published a new documentary film on the HPV vaccine titled: Manufactured Crisis: HPV, Hype & Horror. The synopsis of the film states: "The pharmaceutical industry used faulty research, paid doctors and manipulated the media to push an unsafe vaccine onto the market. They used political pressure to force this vaccine onto the public, despite any demonstrable public threat. The result has been the devastation of many young girls’ lives. Through interviews with leading experts, victims, and our own analysis of the vaccines themselves, the Alliance for Natural Health uncovered a conspiracy of greed that is being perpetrated on families around the world."
A documentary film trilogy, Sacrificial Virgins – which investigates widespread global concerns over the safety of the controversial HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix – was today doubly honoured with awards for investigative journalism at the Watchdog Film Festival, held in Brisbane, Australia. As well as the prestigious Best of the Festival award, Sacrificial Virgins won the Watchdog Spirit Award in recognition of the investigation “in search of truth and justice” by film-maker Joan Shenton and her colleagues, notably director Andi Reiss and film editor Ollie Richards. Festival founder and director James Hyams, himself an investigative journalist, said: "Joan Shenton's thorough, transnational investigation in search of truth and justice deserves recognition and thus the Watchdog Film Festival has awarded her and her team the Watchdog Spirit Award. Shenton's documentary Sacrificial Virgins questions the safety of the HPV vaccine by illustrating that many individuals correlate the onset of a disability or the death of their daughter with the vaccine. Shenton questions medical professionals about the methodology of the HPV clinical trials and develops a case that further scientific research needs to be conducted to alleviate growing concern about the risks and benefits of the HPV vaccine." Joan Shenton, who wrote and narrated Sacrificial Virgins, said: "For the investigative journalism in Sacrificial Virgins to be recognised in such a way by the Watchdog Film Festival is incredibly rewarding. Investigative film-making, often done in the shadow of powerful commercial and political concerns that don’t want you to be heard, can be lonely and sometimes a little frightening. Professional appreciation, especially of such a caliber, touches our hearts, not least when we are told the awards include Best of the Festival."
Teen Girl Develops Leukemia After Gardasil Vaccine – Life Back to Near Normal After Mother Gives Her Cannabis Oil
Hayley Willard was one of the first to receive a Gardasil vaccination at 15 years of age in Newfoundland, Canada in 2010. Up until then, she was a very active extroverted person who was actively involved in figure skating competitions. Her mother Dana explained that Hayley was a healthy, enthusiastic daughter until Gardasil came into her life, although she had minor short-lived adverse reaction from vaccinations before. But after her Gardasil shot she was showing signs of autoimmune issues. Her energy level decreased, she was easily fatigued and looking pale. Then she became sluggishly lethargic with low energy, began gaining weight, was having migraines, and other symptoms. She complained that she was not feeling right and beside herself. Her skating became erratic and she injured herself while practicing. Cysts were discovered in her ovaries, an area that was never an issue with Hayley before. She began having anxiety attacks that were unusual for her and inexplicable. None of the doctors would even imply that the Gardasil vaccine had anything to with her condition. They wanted to prescribe antidepressants instead. But Dana was intuitively suspicious and began researching on the side effects of Gardasil and other vaccines. She soon began realizing it wasn’t a coincidence that her health issues began immediately after Hayley’s HPV vaccination. Her immune system had been compromised severely. Many reported adverse events that Dana discovered from the HPV vaccine included what Hayley was experiencing, often even worse. But the worst event occurred in 2013 when Hayley was diagnosed with leukemia.
