“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
– Marica Angell, former editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world (source)
Controversy has plagued Merck & Co.’s Gardasil vaccine ever since the FDA approved it in 2006, garnering increasing attention as people become more aware of the importance of researching what goes into their bodies. It’s imperative that one examines a large body of evidence before believing what is seen on television or stated on a radio advertisement, and people are slowly starting to wake up to this fact.
“It is a vaccine that’s been highly marketed, the benefits are over-hyped, and the dangers are underestimated.”
– Dr. Chris Shaw, a professor at the University of British Columbia in the department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology, and Visual Sciences (Taken from the One More Girl documentary)
Gardasil, also known as the Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, is given as a series of three shots over six months to protect against HPV infection and its associated health problems. Two vaccines (Cervarix and Gardasil) are said to protect against cervical cancers in women. Gardasil is also said to protect against genital warts and cancers of the anus, vagina, and vulva. Both vaccines are available for females, while only Gardasil is available for males.
The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) claims that the HPV vaccine offers the best protection to girls and boys who receive all three vaccine doses and have time to develop an immune response before being sexually active. This is why it is recommended for children who have reached the age of 11 or 12.
There is a long list of educated people speaking out about this vaccine. This time around, it’s Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, who has started to raise his voice against the HPV vaccine, along with the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. He joins a long list of experts from within the industry who have slammed the rampant manipulation and control of clinical research done by the pharmaceutical industry.
This quote is taken from an interview with Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, conducted in April 2014, from an issue of the French magazine Principes de Santé (Health Principles):
The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless. Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine.
Dr. Dalbergue has also recently released a book titled Omerta dans les labos pharmaceutiques: Confessions d’un medicine that goes into more detail about corruption in the medical/pharmaceutical industry. He also recently made an appearance on a popular radio show in France, which you can watch here.
Scandal, misinformation, and data manipulation have become part and parcel of clinical research and pharmaceutical drug development. It is important that we realize this as fact and not hearsay; apart from whistleblowers, there are numerous documents that illustrate this reality. One of the best examples (out of many) comes from Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, from the Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia. In 2011 she obtained documents that reveal that vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about the multiple dangers associated with vaccines but have chosen to withhold them from the public. The documents were obtained from the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), who advise the Secretaries of State for Health in the UK about diseases preventable through immunizations. You can read those documents here.
Here’s what she had to say about Gardasil:
Another doctor criticizing the HPV vaccine is Dr. Diane Harper. She helped design and carry out the Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies to get Gardasil approved, and authored many of the published papers about it. She has been a paid speaker and consultant to Merck. It’s very unusual for a researcher to publicly criticize a medicine or vaccine she helped get approved, and it is a credit to her character for doing so. It also says a lot that she agreed to participate in the One More Girl documentary, which arguably implies that she supports the other information presented in the documentary.
One More Girl is an answer to Merck & Co’s “One Less Girl” marketing campaign for Gardasil. The parents who encouraged their daughters to get the HPV vaccine did so on the advice of their doctors, their government, and their belief in the pharmaceutical industry. They were not “anti-vaccine”; they played by the rules, and now they are paying the price. It’s a documentary that has several experts from the industry, doctors, and university researchers speaking out about the vaccine.
“They created a huge amount of fear in mothers, and appealed to mothers’ sense of duty to get them to get their daughters vaccinated”
– Dr. Diane Harper (source)
The above quote was taken from the film, and below is an excerpt of her raising some important considerations about the vaccine.
If we are talking about recent research regarding the HPV vaccine, a new review was just published in the journal Autoimmunity Reviews titled “On the relationship between human papilloma virus vaccine and autoimmune disease.”
The authors of this study came to the same conclusion as Dr. Harper, saying: “The decision to vaccinate with HPV vaccine is a personal decision, not one that must be made for public health. HPV is not a lethal disease in 95% of the infections; and the other 5% are detectable and treatable in the precancerous stage.” (If you are interested, you can access the paper here.)
They also listed several conditions in which HPV vaccination is most likely the culprit, including Multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, primary ovarian failure, and more.
The 2008 FDA Closing Statement on Gardasil reports that 73.3% of the ‘healthy’ girls who participated in the clinical trials developed new medical conditions. The list below highlights some of the conditions reported in the 2008 FDA Closing Statement on Gardasil:
- Blood & Lymphatic System Disorders 2.9% = 1 in 34
- Gastrointestinal Disorders 13.4% = 1 in 7
- General & Administration Site Conditions 3.8% = 1 in 33
- Immune System Disorders 2.4% =1 in 50
- Infections & Infestations 52.9% = 1 in 2
- Injury, Poisoning, & Procedural Complications 8.0% =1 in 12
- Investigations 11.8% =1 in 9
- Musculoskeletal & Connective Tissue Disorders 6.8% =1 in 14
- Nervous System Disorders 9.4% = 1 in 10
- Pregnancy, Puerperium & Perinatal Conditions 2.0% = 1 in 50
- Psychiatric Disorders 4.4% =1 in 22
- Renal Disorders 2.7% =1 in 37
- Reproductive & Brest Disorders 24.8 % = 1 in 14
- Respiratory, Thoracic & Mediastinal Disorders 5.5% = 1 in 18
- Skin & Subcutaneous Tissue Disorders 7.4% = 1 in 13
- Surgical Procedures = Appendectomy 10.2% = 1 in 10
A year ago the vaccine was taken off the recommended vaccine schedule in Japan due to its adverse effects. Alarmingly, today’s vaccine has twice the amount of aluminum in it.
