Gardasil and Cervarix – what’s the controversy about the HPV vaccine? — 13 Comments

  1. Thanks for posting this well researched and documented article. I’m starting to dread the vaccine push that we’ll probably face as my dc start heading into college soon.

  2. Carolyn, Thanks for posting this. I don’t ever write articles about these things because I fear it would be more of an emotional rant. (I’ve started and gave up knowing that I wouldn’t be heard through the emotion.) Your post was so well researched and touched on the core of what is so very wrong about this particular vaccine that I find so incredibly unnecessary.

    • It is difficult to stay calm about these issues, but I want so much to make sure that people really look at what’s behind them. I try hard to stay rational.

  3. I have been alerting friends and family to this ever since the vaccine came out. I feel like the schools word their instructions on vaccinations as if this one is mandatory or will be mandatory, so that parents are tricked into thinking they must do it. My daughter is 15 and I will not let them vaccinate her. She knows all about it and knows why we won’t. My son is 14 and I fear I might have to do this all again at the pediatrician’s office with him. I wish I had a copy of your article to show my Ob/Gyn! She said that it absolutely has been shown to prevent cancer (she went to school at Hershey Medical and that’s who did the research on Gardisil). One death is too many in my opinion.

    • Cancer can take many years to develop; therefore, there is not enough history of using the vaccine to prove that it prevents cancer. It is assumed that it will since it does apparently prevent the HPV lesions. However, even if it could be proven that the vaccine prevents cancer, the incidence of the vaccine types of HPV is so low that the risks of adverse effects from the vaccines are way too high to justify the small likelihood of benefit.

      You should be able to print the article, although it is long and will require about 9 pages in Firefox or 8 pages in Internet Explorer.
      If you can’t print the article, then you could ask your ob/gyn for her proof–studies where it’s been shown to prevent cancer. If she gives you any, please let me know. I couldn’t find reference to any.

      Good luck with your children.

    • I agree that experimenting with the vaccine on young girls in India before the safety trials had been completed was unethical. There was no justification for what was done. Even after the trials have been completed, the evidence is growing that the HPV vaccine is not safe. Thanks for providing the link.

  5. For one, women are burdened with the responsibility of childbearing wherein all of us made our longest and most dangerous
    journey inside our mother. So, make sure to request your wellbeing insurance carrier these questions just before kids arrival:
    . Taking proper measures in the present context can help a couple
    to overcome the issue.

    • As you say, “taking proper measures” during pregnancy is necessary for a healthy baby and mother; however, when I looked at your website, the dietary advice you recommend for pregnant women is not healthy.

      For example, you recommend a diet low in fat; however, fat soluble vitamins, like A, D, and E, are essential for the normal development of a healthy baby. Eating a low fat diet puts the mother and baby at risk of deficiencies in these vitamins. Also many other nutrients and minerals are best absorbed along with fats.

      A much better and healthier nutrient-dense diet for pregnancy can be found at the Weston A. Price Foundation: Diet for Pregnant and Nursing Mothers. Among the first items on the list are milk, eggs, butter, and liver–all nutrient dense foods high in the critical fat soluble vitamins.

      Also, if parents do decide to allow vaccinations, a healthy baby/child will be able to better recover from the dangerous side effects of the vaccines than an unhealthy child whose immune system is not fully developed.

    There are identified 200 types of human papillomavirus (HPV); they are divided in low and high risk; the high risk factor HPV are suspicious to originate the uterine cervical carcinoma (UCC); the low risk the mayority, produce benigns lesions; to day exist world collective psicosis about the HPV by the full advertising to the manufacturer to introduce the vaccine against the HPV in the market.
    HPV infection not only is adquired for the coitus; we are contaminated since after born, are widespread in the world; they life in the environment and blood for reduced time; they are ubiquitous; by immunology are determined that have the affinity by our skin and the mucous membrane of the genital, upper respiratory and digestive tracts; anus, of the mouth, gum, lips, in the amniotic fluid, ruber glove, biopsy forceps, specula, underwear, towels, on the floor, the toilet seat, gyms, lockers rooms of swimming in general in the fomites;: are considered as commensals; the domestic and wild animals too are contaminated.
    In average have the viruses 3% to 93% of the men; between 23-26 years of women have the more high frequency and 40% of children have this virus and the 10% of women without sex have the HPV; the pregnants of the first quarter 40%, of the third quarter 60% and in the postpartum 17% have the HPV. Not all person in the world are contaminated;.in average 10% of persons that are leving in development countries and 15% in underdevelpment are polluted with this viruses; they lack to the cellular structure; they have not the proper metabolism; they request a cell to life, is the parasitic of the cell; they are considered the basic structure of life.The frequency and types of the HPV vary according to the region, geography, age, cultural, social, economic and religious factors; the HPV do not distribuited to iqual in the world; in USA: the more frequecy is PVH 16 , Africa HPV 45 , Central and South America PVH 39-59, Canada HPV 31, Spain HPVs 6-16-51- 53: The HPV is increased in the second time of the menstrual cycles and in women who use hormonal anticonception and decrease in the first time of the cycles and do not use hormonal anticonception; the proportion of the HPV too is diferent over the world: Africa Subsahariana 24%, east of Europe 21.4% , Latin America 16.1%, Thailand 8%, New Mexico both sexo 9%, white no hispanic 13.7% , hispanic 9.7% and natives 6.6% , Argentina 16.6% , South Corea 10.4% and so on; a metanalysis in women with normal PAP 11.7%.The HPV life in the cervix of the uterine without produced disturbance: are latent, subclinical in minority case as warts, condylomata flat or inverted ; The HPV are capricious, ubiquitous and enigmatics, appears and disappears from the body of the person, the highest incidence are in women aged 20 to 26 years disappear with the age, may persist throughout life without causing any disturbance, in 80% of women who have HPV in your cervix disappear before the twelve months, by action of the immune system.
    There are not any investigation that scienrtifically proof that the HPV cause the uterine cervical carcinoma (UCC) it is only suspicious. In the development of the UCC are implicate others cofactors being the first and foremost the sexual act; the coitus is the factor scientifically demostrated that produce the UCC; Mix in 130, 000 nuns do not found not any UCC, followed by fasctor suspísous: tobacco, alcohol, HPV, herpes simplex virus 2, age of first intercourse, number of partners, cofactor man, economic factors, more frequent in women of low economic status , multiparity, circumcision, immune system disorders, hormonal contraception, environment and others.
    In 1974 zur Hausen hypothesized that HPV was the agent that cause the UCC and other researchers reported the same idea, but HPV does not fulfill the five Koch’s postulates, which is accepted as dogma in the scientific medical to be considered as the cause of cervical cancer; the HPV in UCC are found by immunological methods in only 90%, that can consider as that the HPV is present or is a immunology residue; the HPV natural or native do not found.in UCC
    The presence of HPV is not sufficient for the development the UCC, require the company of several exogenous and endogenous cofactors.
    Our understanding of the relationship of HPV with the cofactors are still poor and the role of cofactors in the development of cervical malignancy are nebulous. Scientifically can ensures that HPV does not cause cervical carcinoma and HPV vaccine does not prevent less prevents cervical carcinoma, must have further research on the HPV and other cofactors.
