Somewhere Out There
Sometimes I wonder, who is the girl who will be the last recorded death linked to the HPV vaccine Gardasil?
She’s out there somewhere. She might be a happy child, enjoying her summer, looking forward to starting the first grade in a couple of months – still several years away from receiving her Gardasil vaccine. Or she might be a newborn, bringing enormous joy to her proud parents.
She’s out there, alive and well for the moment, and it couldn’t be more heartbreaking.
After watching my video about the dangers of Gardasil, I received an e-mail from an HSI member named Tosca, who’s affiliated with the Renew-You Centre for Wellbeing and Longevity in Australia.
Tosca writes: “I would like to pass on the word re Gardasil to our patients. Can you let me know your sources for the statement that 32 girls have died?”
The source for all reported adverse effects linked to Gardasil is the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). But unfortunately, 32 is no longer the total number of deaths associated with Gardasil. According VAERS, that number has climbed to 47.
And while the death of 47 young girls is the worst of it, there’s plenty more to dislike about this very dangerous vaccine.
Easy to spot where this trend is going
Gardasil launched in 2006, and by the end of 2007 there were 19 deaths linked to the vaccine. In 2008, 28 additional deaths were reported. And I think we can safely predict that number will rise again in 2009.
Which begs the question: How many deaths will the FDA require before this vaccine is removed from market? It’s going to happen. I have no doubt. Gardasil will eventually join Vioxx and other drugs that have been linked to death after death after death until the numbers couldn’t be ignored.
But between now and then, many young girls will die, while other girls will suffer harsh and debilitating adverse side effects.
Some of these VAERS cases are chronicled in a recent press release issued by Judicial Watch. They include one girl who required a wheel chair to get around after receiving her second of three Gardasil doses. She also experienced migraines, swelling of her face, and was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome and peripheral neuropathy. She’s been hospitalized two times.
Another girl, age 19, experienced fatigue, muscle pain, tremor, dizziness, nausea, convulsions, seizures, and loss of consciousness. Other girls have developed genital warts after their vaccinations. In some of these cases, warts also developed on faces, hands and feet.
Descriptions of side effects like these go on and on. According to the latest VAERS records, more than 13,700 adverse event reports in the U.S. have now been linked to Gardasil. Given the severity of many of these events, it’s hard to say what’s worse: 47 deaths, or hundreds, perhaps thousands of girls suffering daily.
How long, FDA, before you shut this monstrosity down?
You can find my Gardasil video at this link. And I hope you’ll share it with friends and family. Until the FDA decides to protect our girls, we’ll have to do the job ourselves.
