Tourette’s-Like Outbreak in Girls of One School: Only Explanation Is HPV Vaccine.

In a LeRoy High School in LeRoy, New York, a group of girls has been stricken with a neurological nightmare. They’ve been afflicted with painful tics similar to those of Tourette’s syndrome. The cause hasn’t been identified, but some possibilities have been ruled out, leaving little to suspect other than the HPV vaccine.

Here is an early news report of the situation and the nature of what’s happening to these girls: See video here…..

Though this report indicates that six girls are involved, others indicate more than that, with a minimum of eight involved. There are too many anomalies for these girls to be suffering from Tourette’s:

  • Tourette’s is overwhelmingly a disease that afflicts boys, not girls. Only about 1 in 4 cases happens in a girl.
  • It’s an exceedingly rare condition, estimated at only .05 – 2 percent of the population—between 1 in 2,000 and 2 in 100 people.
  • Even when it does strike, it usually happens in young children aged 3-9 years, and most improve as they grow older. These girls were all stricken in their teens.
  • The symptoms in girls are usually those of obsessive-compulsive behavior rather than nervous tics, but all of these girls are suffering from tics.

The condition has not been diagnosed. The state’s health department concludes only that it’s a mystery. They’ve ruled out environmental factors. No similarities have been found in terms of medications.

Let’s look at the odds of 8 girls in one school being afflicted with Tourette’s syndrome. Assuming the greatest estimated odds of a person of either sex being afflicted, 2%, the likelihood of 8 children in one location by chance coming down with it, and all within the same school year, would be astronomical. It would take a school of students larger than the world’s population for that to happen! Even considering the fact that such occurrences are not evenly distributed, the odds are so extreme that it’s reasonable to say it’s impossible. And that’s not considering the fact that it’s only girls who are being afflicted.

Andrew Hilberger, a neurologist of the United Memorial Medical Center, located in the same county as LeRoy High School, says that it’s virtually impossible for Tourette’s to be the cause of the girls’ afflictions. He also says:

A lot of the prescription medications for attention-deficit disorder will cause it, some anti-depressants will.

But, the official reports cannot find such a cause. The story came out in early November. In late November the official results from the New York Health Department came out. The cause couldn’t be found, and apparently there is no intention to investigate further.

The Probable Cause

The girls and their families are being left on their own to deal with a devastating neurological condition, one that doesn’t even have a name, other than being “like” Tourette’s.

So, what is likely to affect girls, but not boys? And what has suddenly become prevalent among girls, but not (yet) boys? There is a single answer to those questions: Gardasil, the HPV vaccine.

In the face of an obvious lack of interest in finding the cause and the fact that the HPV vaccine has been known to cause neurological damage, it should be clear that caution is in order:

  • Cervical cancer, the excuse for the vaccine, is of very small risk to most women in industrial nations. It’s holds virtually no risk to teenage girls
  • The vaccine has never been shown to prevent cancer, the supposed reason for its existence.

There cannot possibly be any legitimate justification for continuing the wholesale application of Gardasil to girls—and now to boys, too!—under these circumstances. Of course, the officials will look everywhere but at the vaccination program. That is sacrosanct.
