Big Pharma’s only interest in society today is profit. Healthy people are of no use to them whatsoever, after all a healthy person does not need a cure.

TWO vaccines available here can protect women against a virus which causes cervical cancer, a disease which kills one woman here every five days.

Yet, only three in 100 women have gone for it.

Another obstacle: cost.

The two vaccines, one produced by Merck Sharp & Dohme and the other by GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, cost $400 for a series of three jabs – not cheap for some women.

After spending several years in pre-med, I switched to Journalism and graduated from college with an understanding of medical issues combined with a reporter’s curiosity.

Vaccine Resistance Movement

13th March 2010 – By Joel Lord

On October 16th, 2009 the Council on Foreign Relations, a powerful Globalist think tank met in New York to discuss policy advisement measures on the Government’s H1N1 program. The minutes of the symposium reveal various techniques employed behind the scenes to influence the ‘herd’; including using artificial scarcity to increase demand, blatant fear mongering & counter measures to quell the “anti-vaccine movement”. The program was clearly in disarray.

Gardasil is a Bad Idea Part II

The Skeptics Health Journal Club

by Paul Paul D Maher, MD MPH

In Part one we looked at some reasons to suppose that Gardasil will likely have zero affect on cervical cancer rates and may make things worse. These may be summarized as:

* There is zero direct clinical evidence that Gardasil decreases cervical cancer rates. The FDA approval was made based off an effect on immunity to human papilloma virus.
* Western medicine does not have a great track record in treating cancer, let alone trying to prevent it decades down the line.
* There has never been a preventive cancer vaccine that has been seen to work in the past.
