Leslie Carol Botha: To keep the record straight on the latest pharma/health insurance sponsored study on Gardasil (Gardasil: No Serious Health Concerns Linked with HPV Vaccine) and the national media proselytizing the message to unsuspecting medical consumers, I decided to re-post a case where a young woman died in New Zealand post -Gardasil vaccination. No serious health concerns? If this were your daughter or if you were the parent of one the 119 girls who died post-HPV vaccination (estimated 1 to 10% vaccine injured reporting) would you believe the industry sponsored study? Not to mention the other 27,023 girls and boys who now have been adversely injured.
Mother blames cancer vaccine for teen’s death

The mother of a teenager found dead in her bed has told an inquest that her daughter’s physical and mental health deteriorated sharply when she was given the Gardasil cervical cancer vaccination.
Jasmine Renata, 18, died in September 2009 in a sleep out at her home in Upper Hutt, north of Wellington.
She had received the last of three injections of Gardasil six months earlier.
At the time of her death, Ms Renata’s mother Rhonda said she believed Gardasil may have been the cause.
At an inquest in Wellington today before Coroner Ian Smith, Mrs Renata said her daughter was fit, rarely got sick, didn’t smoke and rarely drank alcohol.
But after her first Gardasil dose in September 2008, she developed pains in various parts of her body, suffered a racing heart beat, weak arms, tingling in her hands and legs, and became tired and irritable.
Her hair had started falling out and she was sleeping as much as possible.
The day before Ms Renata died, she had passed her driver’s test, which she was “stoked” about.
That night, before she went to bed, Ms Renata gave her mother a kiss and a hug and said she loved her.
“That was the last time I saw Jasmine,” her mother told the inquest.
The next day she was told Ms Renata hadn’t turned up to work.
Mrs Renata said she rushed home.
“I threw my keys down and ran to the sleepout. I banged on the door and called her name.”
When she got into the sleepout, she found her daughter in bed and cold.
“(Husband) Joe and I believe the vaccine that Jasmine had been given contributed to her death. The year she received the vaccine she had never complained so much about her mental or physical state,” she told the inquest.
When Ms Renata complained of chest pains and a racing heart in the weeks before her death, they “just put it down to something like anxiety or adrenalin”, Mrs Renata said.
She rejected a suggestion from Coroner Smith that her daughter could have died from a congenital heart problem because there was no history of heart disease in the family.
