Leslie Carol Botha: Is science finally catching up to what parent’s have suspected and observed all along? Is it possible that parent’s who have believed that a vaccine damaged their child’s neurological functioning may be proven? I have said many times, that the pharmaceutical industry made the mistake of vaccinating an age group of adolescents and adults who 1) are very vocal about their injuries and 2) are a demographic where these adverse injuries are unheard of. Vaccinating infants who could into vocalize their injury only scream and vaccinating the elderly whose vaccine reactions were brushed off as a ‘sign of old age,’ is different than vaccinating a population in the prime of their lives.
Parents blame their daughter’s mysterious death on Gardasil vaccine, send in brain tissue for evaluation

According to The Dominion Post, a local newspaper, Jasmine Renata, 18, was found dead in her bed in Upper Hutt in September 2009, six months after receiving the last of three vaccinations.
Her mother, Rhonda, said during an inquest that before receiving vaccines of the drug Gardasil, she was fit and healthy, but her condition began to deteriorate after the first vaccine, as well as her emotional state.
Rhonda Renata testified that her daughter began suffering from a racing heart, constant runny nose, night sweats, warts, joint pain, chest pain, nausea and loss of hair. She added that her daughter seemed agitated and was short-tempered, “getting upset at things that would normally not bother her,” the paper reported.
Following her daughter’s death, Mrs. Renata said she began worrying that the vaccine may have caused it. As such, she convinced a Canadian researcher, Prof. Christopher Shaw, to test some of Jasmine’s brain tissue.
Bad side-effects immediately following first injection
Ian Smith, a local coroner, questioned Mrs. Renata regarding why the family hadn’t gone ahead and had their daughter tested for a possible congenital heart problem when it was offered.
She answered that no one in the family had a history of heart problems.
“The only person who is not here is my daughter, and she’s the only one who took Gardasil,” said Mrs. Renata, adding that the family thought about getting the tests but had not done so.
During the inquest, Mrs. Renata described how she had found her daughter dead in bed after discovering she had not reported for work. She said she and her daughter had dinner the night before.
In testimony days after Mrs. Renata spoke to authorities looking into her daughter’s death, Shaw said he and U.S. pathologist Sin Hang Lee noted “heavy aluminum staining in Ms. Renata’s brain tissue could have acted as a ‘trojan horse,’ bringing the human papillomavirus, or HPV, into her brain,” said the Post.
But Helen Petousis-Harris, of University of Auckland Immunization Advisory Center, countered that the arguments put forth by the two doctors were not scientifically based.
