You may have read my recent post on vaccinations. If not I urge you to have a look here:

Yesterday I picked up the latest Investigate Magazine which features a six page article on Gardasil, the vaccine touted to protect young women from cervical cancer. It gives the story of two girls, a thirteen year old named Sydney in Toronto and Jasmine in Wellington, New Zealand. Jasmine received her series of three injections in September, November and March 2009. The article reports on Jasmine: “After each vaccine she developed multiple health issues, all seemingly minor, but building into a larger picture. After her third vaccine she rapidly declined with a type of cognitive disorder, joint pains, stomach pains, back pains, racing heart; a cold that lasted for weeks, and then Jasmine suddenly died.”

In Sydney’s case, within 24 hours of being injected with her third dose, she developed acute juvenile rheumatoid arthritis involving multiple joints. She was treated with Prednisone, Enbrel and Methotrexate to no effect. Two years later a blood test showed she was positive for HPV DNA. I won’t go into further detail. I encourage you to read the complete article in the October/November issue of Investigate. Suffice to say, there is some pretty questionable stuff in the vaccine.

Interestingly, while wading through some unfinished posts of mine this morning I came across the following report also related to Gardasil. Here is an excerpt from a January, 2008 FOX News Report:,2933,325470,00.html

Two Women Die After Receiving Cervical Cancer Vaccine

The death of two young women who received the cervical cancer vaccination is causing some in the U.K. to question a strategy that calls for hundreds of thousands of schoolgirls to receive the shot next fall, the Daily Mail reports.

The young women who died received the vaccination, marketed under the name Gardasil, in Germany and Austria, respectively. The European Medicines Agency has not released their ages.

The two deaths follow the deaths of three U.S. females, ages 12, 19 and 22, who were reported to have died days after receiving Gardasil, which protects against the human papillomavirus — believed to be the leading cause of cervical cancer — was administered.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently reported that 28 women miscarried after receiving the vaccine.

Neither U.S. nor European health officials have directly linked the deaths or miscarriages to Gardasil. The FDA has said there is no reason to re-examine approval of the drug.

A spokesman for Merck, maker of Gardasil, told the Daily Mail there were no plans to change the company’s recommendation on use of the vaccine.

In my opinion, there is one scare mongering campaign after another perpetrated by the only ones benefiting from these drugs—the pharmaceutical giants—encouraging people to seek refuge in immunizations which have questionable disease prevention qualities and which have been inadequately tested before being foisted on the public. In a short span of time we’ve been led to believe vaccinations are the best recourse for cervical cancer, the swine flu and now, meningitis. I beg to differ. Our children deserve better than this.
