Why so many young women are saying NO to the Gardasil vaccine

Asleep at the switch

It’s an absolute outrage! Sixteen more deaths have been linked to Gardasil.

That brings the total deaths linked to this vaccine to more than 50. And yet somehow the medical mainstream is able to look the other way and still tout the party line that girls should be getting this shot!

How crazy can they be!?

A new study finds that more than 70 percent of young women who are eligible for the HPV vaccine are giving it a big “NO.” What’s more, many women who get the first of the required three-shot series never go back for the remaining shots.

But instead of applauding the girls’ decision NOT to put themselves at risk, the mainstream is stupefied by this news. They’re aghast and “saddened.” They’re scratching their heads, wondering, “What is WRONG with these girls?”

Here’s the right question: What’s wrong with these ridiculously entrenched mainstreamers?

From the very first, I’ve been sounding the alarm about this travesty — tracking adverse event reports and death rates of this dangerous vaccine. And here’s my promise to you: Until the vaccine is off the market for good, I am not getting down off this soapbox until every girl that’s “eligible” just says “NO!”

One doctor, writing about the new study in the Huffington Post, actually said this about Gardasil: “It is probably one of the most significant medical breakthroughs of this past decade. A vaccine to prevent cancer!”

That’s utter nonsense!

As everyone in the medical community knows (or should know), this is not a cancer vaccine. Repeat after me: NOT. A. CANCER. VACCINE.

As I’ve told you before, Gardasil helps prevent four strains of human papillomavirus (HPV). Two of those strains are responsible for about 70 percent of cervical cancers.

In other words, any woman (or rather, girl…remember, they’re injecting this poison into 9-year-olds) who gets all three Gardasil shots and goes home feeling secure that she’ll never have to worry about cervical cancer is deluding herself. The vaccine only reduces SOME of cervical cancer risk, so she’s still going to need to be regularly screened for HPV once she’s sexually active.

And here’s where her life can absolutely be saved. Because when an HPV test comes back positive, she can be treated immediately. Research shows (and my own experience also proved) this is a very effective way to avoid thousands of cervical cancer deaths. No dangerous vaccination necessary.

And everyone in the medical community knows this (or should know). But those mainstreamers are stubborn bunch. And they never met a vaccine they didn’t like.

Those were the days

In the Huffington Post article, the doctor inadvertently hits on the very reason why Gardasil isn’t wooing young women. She writes: “Years ago if someone had told you they have a shot to prevent cancer it would seem like a miracle.”

Right–the good old days–back when Ike was President and most everyone had a sweet, childlike trust in miracle drugs.

But in the good old days there was no system set up to collect and publish adverse events.

Today we not only have VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), we also have organizations like HSI, Judicial Watch and others keeping a lookout.

Two months ago, Judicial Watch issued a press release to announce updated VAERS records that report 16 more deaths linked to Gardasil.

And the subtitle of the release was just as disturbing: “Records Document 3,589 Adverse Reactions Related to Gardasil between May 2009 and September 2010, Including 213 Cases Resulting in Permanent Disability”

So years ago, if someone had told you they have a shot to prevent cancer (in some), and the shot was linked to thousands of adverse reactions, hundreds of permanent disabilities, and more than 50 deaths, it would seem like a nightmare, not a miracle.

In the press release, the President of Judicial Watch accuses the FDA and other health authorities of being “asleep at the switch.” I would say it’s a lot more egregious than that.

But either way, you know who’s not asleep? Millions of young women and their parents. They see what’s going on and they’re doing the safest, most logical thing. They’re just saying no.

I feel so strongly about this subject that I spoke to a group about the dangers of–and politics behind– Gardasil. You can watch that video here. And please pass this e-mail along to any young woman you care about or the parents of young girls among your family and friends.
