Gardasil is a vaccine that is designed to protect against several strains of human papilloma virus that have been linked to cervical cancer.  That does not necessarily mean these strains cause cervical cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, cervical cancer rates dropped by by 74% between 1955 and 1992, primarily due to more aggressive screening.

According to the Mayo Clinic, even though cancer is the number two cause of death in women, it is lung cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer that make it so. There is no mention of cervical cancer. View the entire article here.

Of the adverse effects reported during the last three years for all vaccines, Gardasil was linked to 76% of the “did not recover” events reported to VAERS, for women between the age of 6 and 29.

Gardasil was involved in 78.5% of all “disabled” events and 75% of all deaths linked to vaccines in the same age group, during the same period of time.

Anyone who has is considering having the Gardasil vaccine needs to know what the reported adverse reactions have been to date. These reactions may not occur in everyone, but everyone should be informed as to the possibilities, before they consent to the vaccination series.

Adverse reactions reportedly linked to Gardasil include:

  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Paralysis
  • Guilliane Barre Syndrome
  • Seizures
  • Migraines
  • Blindness or temporary interruption of vision
  • Hearing loss
  • Memory loss, inability to concentrate, or brain fog.
  • Symptoms of chemically induced menopause; including facial hair, disruption of menses, drastic mood swings, hormone imbalance, painful menstruation, and poly cystic ovarian syndrome
  • Circulation issues: heart palpitations, numbness, fainting, drop in blood pressure, and chest pain

Before you consent to the Gardasil vaccine, be aware of what the risks could be. These reactions do not occur in all vaccinations. Some still claim the risks are minimal. Others claim the benefits are minimal. Look at both sides, then decide for yourself whether Gardasil is a good choice for you.
