Is Cervical Cancer on the Rise – Due to Gardasil?

Holy Hormones Journal: 

The very sad article about the female athlete who died of cervical cancer – even though she received the HPV vaccine was posted on my Holy Hormones Honey! Facebook page and Gardasil dosewithin 24 hours reached over 7,000 people. (Article below.)  After reading some of the questions and comments from my followers, I knew I had to write about this and provide more information as to why so many of us are concerned that the HPV vaccine may actually increase a woman’s risk of getting cervical cancer. Not to mention other adverse reactions and even death which I have written about on this blog repeatedly.

In 2006, when Gardasil came on the market, there was already a group of activists who were delving into the government documents about the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccine Gardasil. What we found was astounding and we immediately began writing and sharing our information with other researchers and doctors.

Table 17 on page 13 of the “VRBPAC Background Document Gardasil™ HPV Quadrivalent Vaccine May 18, 2006 VRBPAC Meeting” unequivocally states that if a woman is previously exposed to HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and receives the vaccine , the efficacy of Gardasil decreases to -44.6%. Let’s look at the flip side to that. If a woman is previously exposed to HPV and receives Gardasil – her chances of developing cervical cancer increase by +44.6%.

According to the CDC (see below) an estimated 25,000,000 women in the Gardasil age-group may have been previously exposed to HPV – not just through sex – but fingernails, kissing, and inter-uterine transmission. HPV testing for pre-exposure is not required or offered prior to vaccination.

Their are other facts about the HPV vaccines, that this early group of advocates researched and presented to the FDA – in three power point presentations and two conference calls, as well as at the British Society for Ecological Medicine Conference in London in March of 2011. Thanks to my colleague, Christina England, I was able to meet have breakfast with Andrew Wakefield as well as spend time with now renowned Gardasil researcher, Lucija Tomljenovic.


Cervical Cancer


  • The finding of HPV viral DNA integrated in most cellular genomes of cervical carcinomas supports epidemiologic data linking this agent to cervical cancer however, direct causation has not been demonstrated.

The next paragraph in the NCI Cervical Cancer Prevention states HPV infections dropped by 42% with no precancerous lesions being demonstrated during an eight month study of women whose partners consistently used condoms.  90% of women pass HPV within two years without incidence.


  • It is not a single infection, but multiple persistent infections that may cause cervical cancer. …therefore it is the persistent infection, not the virus that determines cervical cancer risk.

  • Non cancerous types of HPV:  6 & 11

Cancerous types:  16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 68, 69, 73, 82

  • It is estimated that 25,000,000 women may have been previously exposed to HPV

  • The May 2006 FDA VRBPAC Report states if a woman is pre-exposed to HPV and if she is administered the HPV vaccines incidences of cervical cancer increase:

44.6% – Post-Gardasil ®
32.5% – Post-Cervarix ®

  • In a September 2008, FDA Closing Statement on Gardasil it was noted that 73.3% of girls in the clinical trials developed “new medical conditions” post vaccination.

Please note that the mother who died, leaving behind a grieving husband and two children was an athlete.

Why is this of importance? Because in our research, observations and talking with girls and their families injured by Gardasil, the striking similarity between most of them is that they were athletes, competitors, high achievers in academics and other areas other their lives.  In other words, in theory, they had higher levels of testosterone than other girls of their age. Which is interesting because until historically young boys are at greater risk of developing autism because of higher levels of testosterone. It appears that estrogen plays an integral role in the prevention of autism.

When we were reviewing VAERS data, one of my colleagues noticed that boys had higher rates of injuries until puberty – and then rates of injury among females outpaced their counterparts – through the rest of their lifetime. I am sure that hormone changes, motherhood, menopause, lack of awareness of declining immunity during the paramenstrum all come into play.

And then one wonders about the role of synthetic hormones and the suppression of natural hormone production… which results in less estrogen for the demographic of women  vaccinated.

But one thing is for sure, cervical cancer is historically a disease that affects women in their 50’s and 60’s. And yet, today, there are reports of abnormal pap smears, cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer in an age group of women with historically low incident rates.

SaneVax reports that as of January 2016, 605 cases of abnormal pap smears have been reported to VAERS; 269 cases of cervical dysplasia and 104 cases of cervical cancer. An estimated 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured file reports with the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Many doctors are not even aware that it exists.

And now the death of this mother at age 33. Will there be more?

Gold Medalist dies of cervical cancer; could it be because of the HPV vaccine she received years ago?
