NZ Ministry of Health Ignored The Warnings Of Its Own Director Of Gardasil Clinical Trials

Julie Smith, researcher and founder of a New Zealand website set up specifically to give information about the HPV vaccine, Gardasil,, says concerned parents have been contacting her wanting to know how they can help to have the vaccine withdrawn from New Zealand.

After last night’s Close Up on TV 1 Ms Smith says “Many more parents are making the connection to their child’s sudden onset of deteriorating health since receiving the Gardasil vaccine.”

“What is now happening to our girls here in New Zealand is replicating what has already happened overseas. It was only a matter of time before girls here were going to die from this vaccine,” said Ms Smith.

“When Dr Diane Harper, the woman who designed and conducted the clinical trials for Gardasil, asked our government to take a wait and see approach to this vaccine, why did our MoH not heed her advice? Why, when Dr Harper asked the MoH not to promote Gardasil as a ‘cervical cancer vaccine’ because, in her words, this is simply not true, did the Ministry of Health ignore her request?

“These are just two of the many questions Miss Smith says should be put to the Ministry of Health.”

According to the research Ms Smith has discovered, ninety eight per cent of all women can rid their bodies of human papilloma viruses thanks to the action of their own immune system, and of those two per cent who can’t the National Cervical Smear programme will usually detect any pre-cancerous cell changes so they can be treated before cancer develops.

Girls and young women have no real health advantage by being vaccinated with Gardasil.
