Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Holy Hormones Honey! Sadly, it was just a matter of time before mothers with injured and the memories of daughters who died lined up before the doors of justice in their countries – demanding to be heard. Sadly, such is not the case in the Unites States of America – where the doors of justice are a barrier to voicing our concerns. Although the Health Day originally reported on this study in 2013 – I am glad to see it still circulating.
Dr. Sin Hang Lee was the first to bring this issue of HPV 16 and 18 strains not being found in all populations of women.
The question is – how does the vaccine affect women without these strains?
Sin Hang Lee M.D., F.R.C.P. (C), FCAP has over 50 years’ experience in general/surgical pathology and clinical microbiology. He is qualified to practice in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom. Currently he is working as a pathologist at the Milford hospital in Milford CT. Dr Lee is particularly concerned about the issues surrounding the HPV vaccines. He feels that Cervical Cancer is not the mainstream issue that it has been made out to be. He is very concerned as we all are, that the duration of the HPV vaccines have not yet been established, agreeing with the issues raised time and time again by Dr Diane Harper. He says that since Gardasil injections can increase the risk of developing precancerous lesions by 44.6% if there is a prior infection by a vaccine-relevant HPV genotype, and that it is prudent to make sure that a sexually active woman is not infected by HPV 16, 18, 31 or 45 before receiving a Gardasil vaccination.
Here is a story I posted from an African American woman who suffered adverse reactions from the HPV vaccine. Gardasil: “My life changed completely after I stepped into that doctor’s office…”
Sadly, the HPV vaccine is being pushed heavily in developing world countries like Africa and India – along with the Depo Provera birth control injection. Both the vaccine and the Depo campaigns are sponsored by the Gates Foundation. to the best of my knowledge, I do not know of any studies on the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccine and the birth control vaccine when administered at the same time – or within the same time frame.
In other news, Michèle Rivasi MEP of France is calling for a moratorium on the Gardasil demanding more independent studies, stating that “there are problems of efficiency, risks with young women who develop disabling diseases, conflicts of interest related to its placing on the market and a solid and effective alternative: screening by Pap smear.”
Austria has refused to include Gardasil in their immunization schedule and Japan no longer recommends the vaccine.
HPV Vaccines May Be Less Effective for Black Women: Study
April 5, 2014
Black women may get less protection than whites from the vaccines recommended for preventing human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer, a new study suggests.
The currently available vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, don’t target the types of HPV infection found most often in black women, the study authors said.
Experts have long believed that most cervical cancers are caused by persistent infection with subtypes of the sexually transmitted virus known as HPV 16 and HPV 18. These are the strains targeted by Gardasil and Cervarix. (Gardasil also targets HPV 6 and HPV 11.)
But black women tend to develop cancer of the cervix — the lower part of the uterus or womb — and die from it more often than white women, even when screening programs are similar, according to background information included in the study. This led the researchers to wonder if blacks might be less likely to benefit from vaccination.
“HPV 16 and 18 occur less frequently in African-Americans than in whites,” said study researcher Cathrine Hoyo, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Duke University School of Medicine.
