[Leslie Carol Botha: The very vaccine designed to protect women from cervical cancer is actually giving cause to concerns about increasing rates of cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer post-vaccination. The rub is that adolescent girls - especially asexually girls in their preteens are not required to have a pap test until they reach the age of 21. If indeed, she is developing cervical cancer how will anyone know? And it may be a decade before a vaccinated 9 year old has her first annual exam. BTW, ACOG just raised the age for the first pap smear...after Gardasil hit the market. Yet we all know girls are having unprotected sex at a very early age and their chances of contracting an STD that may not be diagnosed or treated for years is reprehensible.]
Gardasil May Cause Cancer
By Sandy Lunoe | May 13th, 2012
When we see the term “cancer vaccine” in connection with the HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine Gardasil we may naturally assume that it prevents cervical cancer, yet there is no evidence whatsoever that this is the case. (1) On the contrary, the term is incorrect because unbelievable though it may sound Gardasil may actually cause cancer. This fact is being ignored by Merck the manufacturer and other promoters including doctors and health authorities.
NOT TESTED FOR CARCINOGENICITY
Information in the package insert states that the vaccine has not been tested for carcinogenicity. (2) Why has this not been done? Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence! There appears to be no official requirement for vaccines to be tested for carcinogenicity and no incentive for manufacturers to do so. Many experts consider that vaccines are conducive towards the dramatic worldwide increase in cancer cases.
The chief editor of the Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, immunologist Charlotte Haug writes about several unanswered questions including that of replacement in her article “We Need to Talk about HPV Vaccination – Seriously”:
Abhorred vacuum.There is another serious question that may be answered sooner: what effect will the vaccine have on the other cancer-causing strains of HPV? Nature never leaves a void, so if HPV-16 and HPV-18 are suppressed by an effective vaccine, other strains of the virus will take their place. The question is, will these strains cause cervical cancer?
Results from clinical trials are not encouraging. Vaccinated women show an increased number of precancerous lesions caused by strains of HPV other than HPV-16 and HPV-18. The results are not statistically significant, but if the trend is real – and further clinical trials should tell us in a few years – there is reason for serious concern. (3)
In an article in the New England Journal of Medicine “ Human Papilloma Virus Vaccination – Reasons for Caution”, Dr. Haug again poses the question of replacement:
“How will the vaccine affect other oncogenic strains of HPV? If HPV-16 and HPV-18 are effectively suppressed, will there be selective pressure on the remaining strains of HPV? Other strains may emerge as significant oncogenic serotypes”. (4)
Replacement was obviously one of several unanswered questions when FDA, Merck and the Norwegian government signed a contract which involved research studies on thousands of young Norwegian schoolgirls. The agreement was that Gardasil would be approved in US under the condition that extensive research projects were carried out in Norway. There was implication of corruption in connection with introduction of Gardasil in the childrens’ vaccination program. (5)
