Mother blames cancer vaccine for teen’s death

By Rebecca Quillam, New Zealand Herald 

08 Aug 2012: 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 sleepout 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.

Family blames vaccine for daughter’s death

From New Zealand City News, August 8, 2012

The family of an Upper Hutt teenager who died in her sleep in 2009 have told a coroner’s inquest they are convinced a vaccine intended to prevent cervical cancer was responsible for her death.

Jasmine Nicole Renata, 18, was found dead in her bed at home on September 22, 2009.

She had received the last of three injections of the Gardasil vaccine, which protects against human papillomavirus (HPV), six months earlier.

On Tuesday, her mother, Rhonda Renata, told an inquest before Coroner Ian Smith in Wellington that she believes the vaccine caused her daughter’s death.

Miss Renata had been fit and healthy with no medical conditions, but after her first Gardasil injection in 2008 she suffered warts on her hands, bleeding gums, dizziness and nausea, a racing heart and her hair was falling out, her mother said.

She also suffered chest pains and headaches, and became tired and agitated.

The only other medication Miss Renata took was the Depo-Provera contraceptive injection, which she had received since age 14.

The nurse who administered Miss Renata’s Gardasil injections, Patricia Ryan, said she had not reported any side-effects in her visits to her clinic.

No issues with teen’s Gardasil, says MedSafe

By Rebecca Quillam

Medicine safety authority MedSafe says there were no manufacturing problems with the cervical cancer vaccination batch given to a Wellington teenager.

Jasmine Renata’s parents have blamed Gardasil for causing her death in September, 2009. The 18-year-old had received the last of three injections of Gardasil six months earlier.

At an inquest in Wellington yesterday before coroner Ian Smith, Rhonda 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 started falling out and she was sleeping as much as possible.

“[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.

‘Biological plausibility’ that vaccine caused death

Excerpt from Otago Daily Times article, 9 Aug 2012

Neuroscientist Professor Christopher Shaw of the University of Columbia in Vancouver told the inquest via video-link today that he was sent Ms Renata’s brain tissue to test.

He said there was aluminium in all the samples he tested and there were some abnormalities in the samples.

The human papillomavirus (HPV16) was found in her brain, which could have only got there through the vaccine, Prof Shaw said.

Gardasil is given to prevent some strains of HPV, and so a small amount of the virus is in the vaccine.

Mrs Renata asked Prof Shaw if the vaccine was likely to have caused her daughter’s death.

He said there was a “biological plausibility” that that was the case because of the abnormalities in her brain he had examined.

However, he could not say conclusively that was the cause of her death.

Dr San Hang Lee, a pathologist at Milford Hospital in Connecticut, told the inquest via video-link that he tested samples from Ms Renata’s blood and spleen.

He also found aluminium and HPV in her system, from the vaccine.

Dr Lee could not say for sure what caused Ms Renata’s death, but said the results he found from testing samples from her were “unnatural”.

Foreign DNA found in teenager’s blood

The Dominion Post, 8 Aug 2012

Fragments of foreign DNA found in Upper Hutt teenager Jasmine Renata’s blood and spleen after her death could have caused a fatal shock reaction, an American pathologist has told her inquest.

Her parents, Joe and Rhonda Renata, believe her death was a result of her having three injections of Gardasil, the vaccine for cervical cancer in 2008 and 2009.

Jasmine, 18, was found dead in her bed in September 2009 six months after her last injection.

Her mother yesterday outlined Jasmine’s declining health and said after her daughter’s death she became concerned about the vaccine and began research.

Dr San Hang Lee a pathologist at Milford Hospital in Connecticut gave evidence on the second day of the inquest by videolink.

Vaccine: The Cause of Renata’s Death?

By Danesh Chandra Gaur

If theories of two overseas experts are to be believed then there are higher chances of biological plausibility confirming that vaccine has caused her death.

It is the case of an 18-year-old woman Ms. Jasmine Renata, who was given a cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil in the year 2008 and unfortunately suddenly died in September 2009. Two overseas experts have mentioned in their findings at a coroner’s enquiry about the evidences stating that the cervical cancer vaccine, which was given could have some links with her death.

Gone After Gardasil: Jasmine – New Zealand

Jasmine Renata – New Zealand

18 years old

This information is from Jasmine’s mother and the report filed with the CARM database (New Zealand’s version of VAERS)

“My 18 year old Daughter had all three shots and not long completed the third, she complained of weakness in her arm, headaches, dizziness, heart racing ,and pins and needles in her hands . All within the last 6 months ,we reasoned all the tell tale signs. She died in her sleep on the 22nd of September 2009. She had none of these symptoms with any other immunization. We are all still filled with disbelief as she was so healthy, never smoked and hardly drank, a workaholic, Jasmine luvu4eva!!”

Jasmine’s medical records show that she had her first HPV vaccine on the 18th of September 2008 around the 20th of October she developed warts on her hand and very dry skin on both hands and lips – the Doctor noted that it was not eczema and prescribed ‘multivitamins to increase immunity, and burnt the warts off with liquid nitrogen – her temperament changed and she became very agitated over this time – it was put down to having ugly warts and rough skin – “she hated them”

She had her 2nd HPV vaccination on the 18th of November 2008. Her file states “ok after last injection – no problems.”  By January the warts had returned and there were some under her nails which were really painful – the dryness on her hands was still there and she felt dizzy at times with pins and needles in her hand – she also suffered quick bursts of memory lapses and pains in the abdomen. On the 28th of January 2009 she had the warts burnt off her fingers with liquid nitrogen. Her 3rd and final HPV vaccine was given on the 17th March 2009 and despite the previous issues the doctor wrote ‘No concerns after 2nd dose, no contraindications.’

During this time, Jasmine was receiving the Depo Provera injection for birth control – at the time I did not know how this would affect the HPV vaccination, if at all, excepting that the toxic load from both vaccines would have been a heavy burden on her system.

This is what happened after her 3rd and final HPV shot – in her mothers words…

“Pretty much immediately straight after the third vaccine, Jasmine’s temperament became even more agitated and she was a lot snappier. She complained every so often about a weak arm and tiredness during the day, but we thought that was her doing more shifts for other people than in the past. She slept in the day, whenever possible.

However, the arm pain continued and she used to get pins and needles and tingling in her hands for no reason. Jasmine started sleeping in longer in the morning, and also going to sleep in the middle of the day before her afternoon shift. She started dropping things.

She also started to eat more than normal, but wasn’t putting on weight.
Jasmine started waking up at night in sweats, and sweating in bed, even when it was a cold pillow, it would be sopping.

From June onwards, Jasmine started to complain of feeling clumsy. She started saying things like, “God, I’m getting clumsy!” and she was knocking things over, and dropping stuff. She complained that she was dropping things at work as well.

About the same time, we started to notice that Jasmine’s thinking wasn’t right. For instance, she asked me if I’d like her to grate some carrots. I said, “Yes, please.” She got out the grater and the carrot, looked at me, and said, “Which way up does the grater go?” Having grated carrots, cheese and stuff hundreds of times before, that was a surprise. Even Jasmine would say something like, “Gee how dumb is that!” This wasn’t a one-off.

In other little things too, where in the past she’d just do it, she didn’t seem to know how. It was like re-teaching a child.

And then she’d ask me, “What should I do with my money this week?” This was a girl who certainly knew what to do with her money in the past.

Looking back, it seems she’d just lose the plot occasionally. She stopped being able to make her own decisions or work out how to do simple things. She was even asking me whether she should do other people’s shifts at work. I got to the point where I thought, “This girl is losing her marbles… where is her decision making gone? Why can’t she do simple things any more?”

In July, Jasmine intermittently complained of chest pain, and a racing heart. We’d ask her if she was stressed but she said she wasn’t.

At the beginning of August, Jasmine got a cold. Normally, her colds might last two days and she had never needed anything for them before this one, but this one just got worse, and worse. She also complained of a sore achy back and abdominal pain. And the warts returned again.

Jasmine’s cold never got better, and on 21st September, the day before she died, she was still complaining of a runny nose, which wouldn’t stop. She also had quite a few headaches during that cold, and leading up to her death. Her skin changed, with a lot more pimples than normal, which really upset her.

Jasmine also talked about going to have more liquid nitrogen on the warts.

In a photo the day before she died, she doesn’t look right. Her hair was lanky and she was very tired. But even so, she was constantly hungry and eating a lot more than normal. Eating more than normal didn’t seem to fit with a constantly tired sick girl, who had had a cold for more than six weeks.

On the 22 September 2009. Jasmine Renata Died in her sleep overnight.

“The Renata’s received from the coroners office (after pushing them for answers), a letter from ESR , which listed samples delivered to them, and the results. Basically, they confirmed what everyone knew – that Jasmine didn’t take opiates, P, acetaminophen, alcohol etc, and there was nothing “self-inflicted” in her system which could have caused her death.”

Jasmine from Wellington

Jasmine-RenataJasmine Renata – Lower Hutt, nr Wellington, North Island

Written by Hilary Butler, 14 January 2010

Jasmine was a very healthy girl, with no history of any health issues at all. After her first Gardasil vaccination (NJ02260) on18th September 2008 Jasmine broke out with warts on her hands, and her skin and moods changed. The warts were burned off on the 20th October, and didn’t come back. After the second vaccination (NJ11440) on 18th November, her moods were worse, and the warts were back within two weeks and were burned off on the 28th January 2009.  After Jasmine’s third vaccine (NJ11440) on 17th March 2009 like clockwork, within two weeks, the warts were back for yet a third time.  It should be noted that at the same time as the Gardasil vaccination, Jasmine was given Depo Provera (birth control) by her doctor.

But we all know, because we’ve all been told this… that Gardasil has nothing to do with development of either warts, or genital warts. We are told that they would have happened anyway. Yet the repeated eruption of the warts, three times, after each vaccine cannot be coincidence.  How many other girls have had this happen and been told it wasn’t related?

After each Gardasil vaccine, Jasmine’s mood and behaviour changed, but like all mothers of teenage children, Jasmine’s mother, Rhonda, put that down to stresses in Jasmine’s life, and perhaps those “social” things that teenagers chose not to talk about…. Every little symptom that Jasmine had, was smoothed away with a variety of possible causes. Her chest pains were brushed to one side.  Racing heart beats ignored.  The fact that she was waking up in bed with pillow sopping wet was considered at the time to be coincidental. The fact that she could no longer do simple tasks automatically, or make decisions was puzzling, and worrying, … but dismissed. That is until Jasmine died and the jigsaw was pieced together. Then the blindingly obvious hit everyone in the face.  Except the medical profession, so it would seem

.After Jasmine’s third Gardasil vaccination on 17th March 2009 , Jasmine’s immune system really struggled to cope with anything. Pretty much immediately straight after it, Jasmine’s temperament became even more agitated and she was a lot snappier.  She complained every so often about a weak arm and tiredness during the day, but we thought that was her doing more shifts for other people than in the past.  She slept in the day, whenever possible.

She also started to eat more than normal, but wasn’t putting on weight.

From June 2009 onwards, Jasmine started to complain of feeling clumsy. She started saying things like, “God, I’m getting clumsy!” and she was knocking things over, and dropping stuff.  She complained that she was dropping things at work as well.  Her mood swings became more volatile.

About the same time, we started to notice that Jasmine’s thinking wasn’t right.  For instance, she asked me if I’d like her to grate some carrots.  I said Yes, please.  She got out the grater and the carrot, looked at me, and said, “Which way up does the grater go?”  Having grated carrots, cheese and stuff hundreds of times before, that was a surprise.  Even Jasmine would say something like, “Gee how dumb is that!”  This wasn’t a one-off.  In other little things too, where in the past she’d just do it, she didn’t seem to know how.  It was like re-teaching a child.

Around May, Jasmine started to complain of sore legs, and a sore upper back.

In July, Jasmine intermittently complained of chest pain, and a racing heart.  We’d ask her if she was stressed but she said she wasn’t.  Her workmates have said that Jazz became very tired and grumpy.  She would snap at them, and complain about feeling unwell a lot of the time, and would talk about having to fit sleep around her shifts.

At the beginning of August, Jasmine got a cold.  Normally, her colds might last two days and she had never needed anything for them before this one, but this one just got worse, and worse.  She also complained of a sore achy back and abdominal pain.

Jasmine went downhill emotionally, physically and mentally, but no-one saw it for what it was, at the time because … “ these things don’t happen after Gardasil”.

Medical Consumers Beware: ‘First do no harm’ does not apply at the FDA

[SaneVax: Apparently the FDA has little, if any,  interest in real science, particularly when it comes to vaccine safety.   The following interview probably reveals only the tip of the iceberg when exposing problems with Gardasil that are ignored by the FDA. Since the FDA is  supposed to be responsible for ensuring the health and safety of the population of the United States--and other countries who rely upon FDA for medical science--those within the organization should be held personally accountable for their failures to act in the public's best interest.

This shocking interview with Norma Erickson, President of SaneVax Inc., conducted by Catherine J. Frompovich, reveals one of a host of apparent reasons the medical system in the United States has become the number one cause of iatrogenic illnesses and death, as reported in peer review journals.]

Gardasil Vaccine rDNA Introduced at Coroner’s Inquest

By Catherine  J. Frompovich

Wellington, New Zealand.  According to testimony presented via international video link before a coroner’s inquest in Wellington, New Zealand, (August 9 NZ) by Dr. Sin Hang Lee (August 8 USA), a pathologist on the medical staff of Milford Hospital in the State of Connecticut, “residual HPV DNA fragments from the viral gene or plasmid injected with Gardasil®” have been found six months after that vaccination (series) was given to Jasmine Renata.  Ms. Renata, a teenager, died in her sleep of unknown and unexplained causes.  An autopsy was performed to determine cause of death.

Interview With Norma Erickson, President, SANE VAX, Inc

Part 1 

Norma Erickson is President of Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective Vaccines and Vaccination Practices (SaneVax, Inc.), a vaccine safety advocacy group.  SaneVax became involved at the request of the late Jasmine Renata’s parents, who were seeking help understanding what happened to their lovely daughter following her death after experiencing numerous problems with the HPV vaccine Gardasil® [1]

This interview covers part of the ‘history’ involved in that unfortunate case.

Norma, can you please tell us the date of Jasmine’s death?

Jasmine died September 22, 2009.

Do you happen to know if Jasmine experienced any medical problems before her death?

Yes, beginning with warts and mood changes after her first injection; same thing after the second. The warts came back a third time after the last injection, mood and behavior changes, tingling sensations in her limbs, memory loss, tachycardia, chest pains and multiple other symptoms. The entire chronicle is here http://sanevax.org/jasmine-from-wellington/

How many Gardasil® injections did Jasmine receive?  How far apart were the injections given?

Gardasil®, as you know, is a series of three injections.  The first injection was September 18, 2008; the second, November 18, 2008; and the third, March 17, 2009.

At any time were her parents suspicious of any reactions to the Gardasil®, vaccinations? If so, what were they? 

I have not spoken personally with Jasmine’s parents, as they have been working with an associate in New Zealand since shortly after their daughter’s death. Out of respect for their privacy, all personal contact is maintained through the person they had established a relationship with. That being said, Jasmine’s mother wrote her version of the events and allowed SaneVax to post it on our site in order to try and let other parents know the potential risks involved with HPV vaccinations. The story can be viewed here http://sanevax.org/gone-after-gardasil-jasmine-new-zealand/ .

How did SANE Vax become involved in this case?

Once information about Dr. Lee’s discovery of HPV rDNA fragments firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant in multiple samples of Gardasil® circulated, SaneVax began to receive requests from parents of girls suffering severe reactions all over the world looking for a way their daughter’s blood could be tested for the contaminants. SaneVax had to turn them all down, because we knew Dr. Lee’s lab was not set up to work with blood samples and no protocol had been developed to try and detect HPV DNA particles attached to aluminum in human samples. No one knew if it would even be possible to detect such fragments.  Occasionally there would be some sort of special circumstance involved where I would forward an inquiry directly to Dr. Lee because the questions were beyond my field of expertise. The New Zealand advocate working with Renata’s parents posed many questions I could not answer with any degree of certainty, so I put her in direct contact with Dr. Lee.

I understand an autopsy took place.  What did that autopsy reveal?

The autopsy did not uncover any HPV DNA fragments. Quite the contrary, the autopsy ruled out all known causes of death.

So, why then, did a coroner’s inquest take place recently?

In New Zealand, when there is a death with no identifiable cause, it is routine for there to be an inquest.

Let’s back up a little. If you say SANE Vax was getting requests from around the world to have blood tested of young girls experiencing severe reactions to Gardasil®, how did this come to happen?

Originally, Dr. Lee tested 13 different Gardasil® vials from six different countries and four different manufacturing facilities, and all were found to be contaminated with HPV rDNA, firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant.

Can you reveal the dates of Dr. Lee’s discovery?

The tests were done in June to August of 2011.

Did SANE Vax contact any health authorities, e.g., FDA?

As soon as Dr. Lee’s final report was turned in to SaneVax, we reported the situation to the FDA, September 2, 2011. Considering the Gardasil® issues came right on the heals of the Vioxx scandal, we saw no reason to report the issue to Merck. Furthermore, it is the FDA who is responsible for protecting the health and safety of medical consumers in the United States. Since that time, a couple more Gardasil® vials have been tested. I believe we are at 16 now, and all confirm residual HPV DNA.

I know we can’t divulge information regarding what took place at the inquest until the coroner releases it to the public, but from what you know of Dr. Lee’s research, can you please share with us what he found after his pathological examination, since he is under contract to SANE Vax and you are the owners of the research?

I can discuss it to the best of my ability.

Dr. Lee’s pathology report indicates that Gardasil® material was lodging in tissue and may have been causing health problems.  The fact that Gardasil® DNA fragments were suspended in post-mortem blood—and six months post vaccination—indicates there is pathology that HPV vaccine makers did not warn about on the vaccine package inserts as a contradictionHow serious a problem is that for vaccine makers?

In my opinion, it poses a quite serious problem for two reasons. First, the manufacturer went to great lengths to remove all residual HPV DNA from the vaccine, including using a patented process to remove it from the vaccine. They assured regulatory agencies worldwide that there was no ‘viral DNA’ in the vaccine in order to obtain approval for marketing their product. Any way you slice it, HPV DNA is viral DNA – it need not be the complete virus to be viral DNA.

After we reported the presence of HPV DNA in Gardasil® to the FDA, FDA declared without presenting any supportive data that rDNA fragments are an acceptable excipient. The fact is the FDA does not know the physical condition of the HPV DNA or plasmid DNA in the vaccine. The physical condition of naked foreign DNA determines the fate of these DNA fragments and their pathophysiological effects in the human body.

Up to now, the vaccine industry always knew “The FDA specifically requires vaccine developers to show that VLPs [virus-like particles] do not encapsidate “specific” nucleic acid sequences from the expression system, and especially those encoding VLPs components.” (Valley-Omar’s paper)

Second, had Jasmine had wild (natural) HPV in her blood, it would not have lasted very long as the macrophages would have degraded it within a couple of days. Therefore, according to Dr. Lee:

“The finding of these foreign DNA fragments in the post-mortem samples six months after vaccination indicates that some of the residual DNA fragments from the viral gene or plasmid injected with Gardasil® have been protected from degradation in the form of DNA-aluminum complexes in the macrophages; or via integration into the human genome. Undegraded viral and plasmid DNA fragments are known to activate macrophages, causing them to release tumor necrosis factor, a myocardial depressant which can induce lethal shock in animals and humans.”

Norma, could that tumor necrosis factor include cancer?  Are there other ‘unknowns’?

TNF [tumor necrosis factor] is but one possible byproduct of macrophage activation. To the best of my knowledge, it only affects the heart. Other cytokines also could theoretically be produced as a result of macrophage activation causing other problems – no one knows. Study in this area is relatively new.

No one knows the potential consequences of these foreign DNA fragments remaining in the human body. Can they cause cancer? Can they cause autoimmune disorders? Can they cause birth defects? Can they cause death? No one knows – that is a HUGE problem, in my opinion.

Do you think AAHS [amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate] in Gardasil® can be the primary contributing factor to so many deaths and adverse reactions in young girls who were vaccinated with Gardasil® ?   Please elaborate.

Personally, having looked at the results of the clinical trials where the vaccine was tested against the AAHS as a control, I believe it is a strong possibility that AAHS is a contributing factor. The reason being the adverse events during the trials were somewhat evenly distributed between the two groups. Unfortunately, over 70% of all trial participants experienced a ‘new medical condition’ during the trials – which, by the way, is the CDC’s definition of an adverse event.

How very interesting!  And, of course, that does not appear on vaccine package inserts, does it? 

The only thing quoted in package inserts or advertising is Gardasil® is safe and effective. It does not seem to matter what the truth is, i.e., the vaccine appeared to be no more dangerous than the adjuvant during clinical trials. Remember that even this may be misleading, as no one knows the long-term effects of the HPV DNA particles. The real experiment is being conducted on young people around the world as we speak.

What did Dr. Lee’s pathology report state regarding that connection?

Dr. Lee was not looking for aluminum damage or exposure. He was simply attempting to discover whether or not the HPV DNA fragments found in Gardasil® were also present in autopsy samples.

According to Dr. Lee, the HPV DNA fragments in the vaccine were firmly bound to the amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (AAHS) particles that are used as an adjuvant in Gardasil® formulation.  The post-mortem finding obviously indicates an apparent unknown role AAHS in Gardasil® plays in the body’s retention of HPV DNA particles, especially since a relatively high amount of AAHS is administered with each vaccination.  What should the U.S. CDC and FDA do in view of these findings?

Ideally, these agencies would rescind Gardasil® approval until such time as independent—not Big Pharma—laboratory analysis could prove the residual HPV DNA attached to an aluminum compound poses no risk to medical consumers.

Well, isn’t that part of the problem with vaccines, e.g., the rush to get vaccines certified for human use often with a rush to judgment and sometimes-flawed science?

Yes, at the very least, the CDC/FDA should provide autopsy samples from all deaths subsequent to Gardasil®vaccinations to independent laboratories with suitable technology to investigate the situation further. Anything less is a betrayal of the public trust.

I think this is where we can end Part 1 of this interview. In Part 2 we will address as much as we can about Dr. Lee’s research.

Bombshell Interview Reveals DNA Fragments Discovered 6 Months After Vaccination

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Interview With

Norma Erickson, President, S.A.N.E. VAX, Inc. 

Gardasil Vaccine rDNA Introduced at Coroner’s Inquest 

Part 2 

Sin Hang Lee, MD, is a medical practitioner historically qualified to practice medicine in the People’s Republic of China, the District of Columbia, New York State, and the State of Connecticut in the USA, plus in Canada and British Commonwealth countries via his registration with the General Medical Council of the UK.  Currently Dr. Lee holds a medical license in the State ofConnecticut,USA.

Dr. Lee has staff privileges at the Milford Hospital in Milford,Connecticut.  He was certified by the American Board of Pathology in anatomical pathology (1966); certified in general pathology by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1966); and granted the F.R.C.P. degree by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1966).  Dr. Lee has practiced diagnostic pathology in Canada and the USA continuously since 1966 with a special interest in developing new technologies in laboratory medicine.  His most recent research is the use of low temperature (LoTemp®) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and direct automated Sanger DNA sequencing to increase the sensitivity and specificity of the molecular diagnosis of infectious diseases.

Using Dr. Lee’s new methods, PCR can detect HPV L1 gene DNA bound to nanoparticles; it can detect HPV L1 gene DNA of vaccine origin present in human blood and tissue samples.

Norma, given the above professional bio about Dr. Lee, one has to assume he is more than qualified to discuss his findings with regard to the Jasmine Renata case inNew Zealand.  I understand Dr. Lee was one of numerous experts and witnesses to testify at the recent (August 9, 2012) two-day inquest held to determine the cause of death, which could not be determined officially by autopsy.  This case has gathered local interest and coverage.  I understand the New Zealandpress covered the event in real-time and reported on it.  Here are two links to that coverage.

The Dominion Post  http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/7437620/Teens-brain-tissue-sent-for-examination

Since we cannot discuss the inquest until the coroner releases that information, let’s talk about some of what we know.  Dr. Lee tested 16 samples of Gardasil® in use from 9 countries, each with a different lot number. The lot numbers of the 5 New Zealand samples, the cities of origin and the HPV genotypes of the L1 gene DNA found in each sample are listed below: 

Lot# Country/Source Results
NL01490 New ZealandTauranga HPV-18HPV-16
NK16180 New ZealandNorthland HPV-18HPV-16

NM08120 New ZealandChristchurch HPV-11HPV-18HPV-16
NL13560 New ZealandWellington HPV-11HPV-18HPV-16

 

There seems to be a potential problem that falls back on to the Renata case insofar as Dr. Lee’s findings in Jasmine’s blood and spleen tissue and the above findings.  Can you please tell us about that?

Yes, Catherine, there are multiple potential problems with discovering HPV-16 L1 DNA in Jasmine’s samples. We must emphasize that what was discovered in the Gardasil® vaccine and in Jasmine’s samples are viral DNA fragments, not the infective wild viruses.

First, HPV infection is confined to epithelium. This virus does not survive in the blood or in other organs of a healthy woman.  Any naked HPV DNA fragments in the circulating blood would be degraded by serum or intracellular DNA nucleases (enzymes) if these fragments are taken up by the macrophages (a component of the white blood cells), and eliminated from the body in 24-48 hours.

Since the HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments were discovered 6 months after Jasmine’s last Gardasil® vaccination, we have to assume these HPV DNA fragments were either protected by being firmly bound to the aluminum adjuvant, or by integrating themselves into the human genome through poorly understood mechanisms.

Didn’t Jasmine’s mother contact Dr. Lee after she had read that the U.S. FDA announced that the Gardasil® vaccine contained residues of HPV L1 gene DNA?

Jasmine’s parents made contact with us after the discovery of genetically engineered HPV DNA in Gardasil® through an associate we work with inNew Zealand. They were then put in direct contact with Dr. Lee because of his expertise.

I think our readers ought to know that the FDA affirmed Gardasil® samples do contain HPV L1 gene DNA fragments. 

That can be confirmed on FDA’s website    http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm276859.htm   

Wasn’t that an ‘after-the-fact’ FDA announcement to its certifying that Gardasil® was safe and effective, despite it being bound to insoluble adjuvant AAHS particles?  How could that have slipped by the certifying process?  I guess that does not appear on the vaccine package insert, does it?

The webpage you refer to was a public response to the SaneVax letter which informed the FDA of the contaminants Dr. Lee had discovered. Anyone reading the FDA’s announcement should note there are absolutely no scientific references to back up the claims, and I quote, “The presence of these DNA fragments is expected, is not a risk to vaccine recipients, and is not a safety factor.”

In stark contrast, readers can examine our original letter informing the FDA of this potential health risk here – http://sanevax.org/sane-vax-to-fda-recombinant-hpv-dna-found-in-multiple-samples-of-gardasil/

Instead of conducting further investigation into our discoveries, including the finding of HPV DNA fragments firmly bound to the insoluble AAHS adjuvant, the FDA issued a blanket statement as to the vaccine’s safety.

AAHS is listed as an adjuvant on the package insert. But a molecular complex of HPV DNA or plasmid DNA fragments firmly bound to the AAHS particles (probably through a chemical reaction) are not.

Don’t those insoluble adjuvant AAHS [amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate] particles and the HPV L1 gene DNA encourage cytokine production, which apparently is not listed on the vaccine package insert? 

AAHS is Merck’s proprietary mineral-based insoluble adjuvant with a very high binding capacity for HPV VLPs, the active major capsid protein antigen in Gardasil®. The vaccine manufacturer and the FDA might have known there would be residual HPV DNA and plasmid DNA in the Gardasil® vaccine, if there is evidence to support that claim.

However, they did not know (or, if they knew, did not disclose) the physical condition of these naked viral (HPV) and bacterial (plasmid) DNA in Gardasil®. For example, these DNA fragments could be in the aqueous phase (dissolved in water), encapsulated in the VLPs, or bound to the AAHS by electrostatic attraction or an irreversible chemical reaction between the aluminum in the AAHS and the phosphate backbone of the DNA molecules.

In his testimony, Dr. Lee presented experimental evidence to show that DNA/AAHS complexes may constitute a new chemical compound with unknown effects. As all AAHS nanoparticles are designed to be phagocytized by tissue macrophages after intramuscular injection, any foreign viral and/or plasmid DNA present would be carried into the cytoplasm of the macrophages along with the AAHS nanoparticles. Once in the cytoplasm, these foreign DNA fragments, protected from degradation, may act as long-acting stimulators to activate the macrophages to signal the production of cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF).

TNF is a known myocardial depressant capable of causing hypotension and lethal shock in animals and in humans, as well as other symptoms commonly reported by the girls vaccinated with Gardasil®.

Persistence of foreign DNA fragments in the cells increases the chance of integration of the foreign DNA into the human genome through poorly understood mechanisms, thus increasing the risk of gene mutations and cancer.

Should MDs who administer Gardasil® be aware of that key omission on package inserts because of the potentialities of what can happen to vaccinees, e.g., tumor necrosis factor, even sudden death syndrome from myocardial dysfunction or as a result of maldistribution of peripheral blood flow?

It is not standard practice to warn physicians or medical consumers of unproven scientific theories. To date, there has been no research in the area of the risks of foreign DNA being attached to aluminum particles included in vaccines. The research to discover the real risks just has not been done.

That being said, those who administer Gardasil® should be made aware of the fact that severe adverse reactions occur at a higher rate than deaths from cervical cancer in most developed countries, the United States being one. [Reference: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/07853890.2011.645353]

What is the tumor necrosis factor?

TNF is a cytokine primarily secreted by macrophages (white blood cells). This cytokine is involved in the regulation of a wide spectrum of biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, lipid metabolism, and coagulation. It is one of the cytokines that have been implicated in a variety of diseases, including autoimmune disorders/diseases, insulin resistance, and cancer. [Reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/7124]

Isn’t the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) a recognized myocardial depressant?  Isn’t TNF known to cause the release of cytokines?

TNF is one of the cytokines, which may be produced when either naked viral or bacterial DNA activates the macrophages. Yes, according to Dr. Lee, “It is a known myocardial depressant capable of inducing lethal shock in animals and in humans.”

[References: Parrillo JE, etal. J Clin Invest. 1985;76:1539-1553; Kumar A, etal. Am J Physiol Regul Interg Comp Physiol. 2007;292-:R1900-6; Cauweis A, etal. Immunity. 2000;13:223-231; Cauweis A, etal. Arch Biochem Biophys. 2007;462:132-139;  Cauweis A, etal. Nat Immunol. 2003;4:387-393.]

One may also consider since the medical profession currently uses TNF-blockers to treat inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, that overproduction of TNF may be a precursor to these and possibly other autoimmune disorders. [References: http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=25458 http://www.arthritis.org/tnf-inhibitor-b-cell.php]

If I’m not mistaken, don’t HPV L1 gene DNA residues left in Gardasil® bind to cationic AAHS [amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate] nanoparticles?

Yes, at pH 6.0-6.5, AAHS in the Gardasil® vaccine carries a positive charge and the DNA a negative charge. Therefore, there is an electrostatic attraction between the two. But as Dr. Lee testified at the Jasmine inquest, a highly stable, perhaps irreversible, new chemical compound of the cationic aluminum bound to the phosphate backbone of the DNA molecule may have been created in the Gardasil® vaccine. The toxicity of the DNA/AAHS complexes is totally unknown.

How much AAHS adjuvant is there in each Gardasil® 0.5ml dose?

There are 225 mcg of AAHS in each of the three recommended doses to complete the series.

Aren’t the proteins used as antigens in Gardasil® manufactured in yeast cells using genetic engineering?  That’s not in the public knowledge, is it—especially genetic engineering manufacturing in association with the use of aluminum-based nanoparticles as adjuvant? What type of impact, if any, would that have in cytokine production? 

Yes, the HPV L1 protein virus-like particles (VLP’s) used as antigens in Gardasil® are manufactured with yeast cultures using genetic engineering. The method by which they were produced was explained, but in my opinion, the general public did not connect the explanation of the concept with genetic engineering. It is my understanding that any foreign (meaning non-human) DNA remaining in the vaccine, whether it be from HPV, bacteria, yeast, or any other ingredient used in the manufacturing process could pose unknown health risks. Viral DNA and bacterial DNA fragments firmly bound to aluminum salts are more of a concern than yeast DNA, particularly when it comes to the potential of causing lethal shock.

For those who doubt the HPV L1 gene DNA findings, what are the odds that prove that Jasmine’s samples were accurate and beyond a reasonable doubt?

As Dr. Lee testified, his findings are validated by DNA sequencing, the gold standard for HPV DNA detection and genotyping. A few split samples, which Dr. Lee has tested in Connecticut, are being retained in Auckland Hospital. Other interested scientists may reproduce Dr. Lee’s test results by testing those retained samples, which can leave New Zealand only with the Coroner’s authorization.

Macrophages—white blood cells—get involved.  Can you explain what transpires in the body that implicates Gardasil®?

Honestly, I cannot explain what happens in the body. What we have here is HPV L-1 gene DNA in the vaccine firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant, a DNA/mineral complex which was not expected. We have HPV-16 L-1 gene DNA in the macrophages of post-mortem blood and spleen samples, a finding which was not expected in a healthy woman. There are only two ways HPV DNA could have remained in post-mortem tissue – either it was protected from normal degradation by being firmly bound to the cationic aluminum; or it had integrated into the human genome. Either one poses serious potential consequences that need to be defined and disclosed. It is the job of the FDA/CDC/NCI and any other federal agency responsible for protecting the health and welfare of the American public to conduct the necessary studies to answer the questions about potential health risks.

If your readers would like to learn about the potential consequences, I would suggest they search for ‘macrophage activation syndrome.’ They will find over 365,000 sites linking to the latest scientific data.

If all Gardasil® samples Dr. Lee tested were positive, what are the implications regarding genetic engineering in any vaccine manufacturing? 

I would personally think it would bring any genetically engineered vaccine under scrutiny for the same potential risks.

That information about Gardasil® impacting white blood cells and tumor necrosis factor does not appear on the vaccine package insert.  What do you have to say about that? 

It would not appear on the package insert, as it was just recently discovered. However, that does not absolve the FDA of at least some culpability in the matter. When the FDA was informed of the contaminating HPV DNA, they did an immediate about-face from ‘no viral DNA’ to ‘it was known and expected.’

If indeed, it was ‘known and expected,’ medical consumers deserve the answers to the following:

  • Exactly when did Merck inform the FDA there is viral DNA in Gardasil®? In a letter dated April 19, 2006, Merck emphatically stated Gardasil® ‘contains no viral DNA.
  • If Merck did report this to the FDA, what did the report state about the physical condition of the HPV DNA fragments in the final product? Were they in the aqueous phase of the vaccine suspension? Were they encapsulated in the VLP’s? Were they bound to AAHS nanoparticles? If so, how were they bound? (Naked foreign DNA in different physical conditions may have different pathophysiologic impacts on the human body.)
  • Did Merck report the presence of plasmid DNA in addition to the HPV DNA? (Plasmid is DNA from bacterial origin and is attached to the HPV L1 gene for production of the vaccine protein. It may be expected to be present together with the HPV DNA in the vaccine.)
  • If Merck knew the HPV DNA was bound to AAHS to form DNA/AAHS complexes, where are the reports from the studies they must have performed on the pathophysiologic implications of using these complexes?

Now here’s something that should be a ‘clincher’, I think. I understand HPV DNA was reported in the plasma of patients with invasive cervical cancer, which was known to be the source of HPV DNA in plasma.  Furthermore, HPV DNA was not detected in plasma samples of patients who did not have cervical cancer.  Jasmine did not have cervical cancer, as determined by autopsy. Therefore, she/her body should not have any HPV DNA from a cancer.  What do you have to say to that? 

As stated previously, there are very few conditions under which HPV DNA would remain in a person’s blood and spleen long enough to be detected. This is one such circumstance. [References: Pornthanakasem W, etal. BMC Cancer. 2001;1:2; Shimada T, etal. Jpn J Clin Oncol. 2010;40:420-424]

We’ve been talking about HPV L1 gene DNA in blood and spleen samples.  Were any found elsewhere in Jasmine’s tissues? 

We have learned via a report fromNew Zealand that:

 “Neuroscientist Professor Christopher Shaw of the Universityof Columbia inVancouver told the inquest via video-link today that he was sent Ms Renata’s brain tissue to test.

He said there was aluminum in all the samples he tested and there were some abnormalities in the samples.

“The human papillomavirus (HPV16) was found in her brain, which could have only got there through the vaccine.” Prof Shaw said.

http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/220882/biological-plausibility-vaccine-caused-death

Do you think the FDA should be looking for a cause-effect link between HPV L1 gene DNA-activated macrophages and lethal shock? 

Of course they should be looking! At the very least, they should be hunting down samples from every unexplained death after Gardasil® and sponsoring independent studies to determine if HPV L-1 gene DNA is present in others. They should also be looking at those reporting serious adverse events after Gardasil® for the same DNA.

As it stands, the FDA is not living up to their mission statement, which states:

“FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.

“FDA is also responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medicines more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to maintain and improve their health…..” [Reference: http://www.fda.gov/aboutfda/whatwedo/default.htm]

Medical consumers have trusted the FDA to do exactly that – protect the public health and help them get accurate, science-based information – these trusting medical consumers have been betrayed.

Norma, thank you so very much for this interview.  I appreciate your cooperation in helping healthcare consumers understand issues authorities apparently don’t want to discuss.

Breaking News: Gardasil® HPV DNA discovered in post-mortem samples

By Norma Erickson, President

Testimony provided by Dr. Sin Hang Lee via an international video link before Coroner Ian Smith in Wellington NZ revealed the discovery of Gardasil® HPV DNA fragments in post-mortem samples. This inquest was conducted to examine the facts surrounding the unexplained death of Jasmine Renata six months after Gardasil® vaccination.

Dr. Lee, a pathologist on the medical staff at Connecticut’s Milford Hospital, testified:

“The finding of these foreign DNA fragments in the post-mortem samples six months after vaccination indicates that some of the residual DNA fragments from the viral gene or plasmid injected with Gardasil® may have been protected from degradation in the form of DNA-aluminum complexes in the macrophages; or via integration into the human genome.

Undegraded viral and plasmid DNA fragments are known to activate macrophages, causing them to release tumor necrosis factor, a myocardial depressant which can induce lethal shock in animals and humans.”

Dr. Lee stated, “The naked DNA in the vaccine was probably stabilized through a chemical binding between the mineral aluminum and the phosphate backbone of the double-stranded DNA.”

Dr. Lee did not claim the HPV-16 L1 gene DNA he discovered in the post-mortem blood and spleen samples was the cause of the sudden and unexplained death of the New Zealand teenager in her sleep. He did note that since the full autopsy analysis had ruled out all known causes of death, his discovery presented a plausible mechanism of action that needed further investigation in all cases of unexplained deaths following Gardasil® vaccinations.

Dr. Lee had previously tested a total of 16 Gardasil® samples from around the world under contract with the non-profit organization SaneVax Inc. Five of those Gardasil® samples were distributed in New Zealand, each with a different lot number. Dr Lee found HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments admixed with HPV-18 and/or HPV 11 L1 gene DNA in all samples.

These HPV DNA fragments were firmly bound to the amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (AAHS) particles used as an adjuvant in the vaccine formulation.

Fragments of HPV rDNA firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant have been found in 100% of Gardasil® samples tested. Various regulatory agencies agree these particles are in the vaccine, but claim they pose no health risk. These same HPV rDNA particles have been found in blood and spleen samples of a girl who died shortly after vaccination with Gardasil.

What does this mean for medical consumers? It leaves them with numerous questions that demand answers:

  • Do all lots of Gardasil® contain HPV DNA residue?
  • Is the HPV rDNA found in blood and spleen samples still firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant?
  • Do post-mortem samples from others who have died without explanation after Gardasil® also contain HPV DNA?
  • Do those who have experienced severe adverse reactions after Gardasil® have HPV DNA in their blood? Or, at the site of injection?
  • Are these particles bound to the host macrophages (white blood cells that normally destroy foreign particles and infectious microorganisms) rather than being destroyed as wild HPV would have been?
  • Could injected HPV rDNA activate the production of TNF (tumor necrosis factor) or other cytokines associated with autoimmune disorders?
  • Does this HPV rDNA have the capability of integrating with the host DNA and causing mutations that may lead to cancer?

According to Dr. Lee:

“There are only two known ways these HPV DNA fragments would remain in post-mortem tissue. Either the fragments are attached to the aluminum adjuvant and unable to be degraded by the DNA nucleases, or the fragments were integrated into the human genome. Either of these options may have harmful and potentially lethal consequences, and need further investigation.”

Medical consumers worldwide have every right to demand these questions be answered. Until answers are provided the human right to informed consent is being violated.

It is time for government health authorities around the world to provide autopsy samples from all deaths subsequent to Gardasil® to independent laboratories with suitable technology, in order to provide the answers to these questions for medical consumers. Anything less is a betrayal of the public trust.

Gone After Gardasil: Acceptable Collateral Damage? SaneVax Asks: How much damage is acceptable?

By Freda Birrell and Norma Erickson, SaneVax Inc.

According to government health authorities, medical ‘experts,’ and the pharmaceutical industry adverse events after vaccinations are extremely rare. The attitude of these organizations toward individuals who do experience an adverse reaction to vaccines was recently summed up quite clearly in an article titled, The Value of Life, Statistically Speaking by Rick Jones, CFO magazine which stated:

“Inoculating children to prevent infectious disease transmission is good for society from both health and financial perspectives, but some initially healthy children may suffer adverse reactions, injury, or even death. For vaccines, the enormous societal benefits trump the tragedies of the few.”

In other words, those who suffer adverse reactions, injury and even death are viewed as acceptable collateral damage, nothing more than statistics.

Allow us to introduce you to a small sample of the statistically ‘rare’ adverse events after receiving the HPV vaccine, Gardasil:

Jessica Ericzon

Jessie Ericzon:  Jessie was one of those rare individuals who truly had a zest for life. In her universe everyone deserved a fair chance and she made it her personal mission to make sure everyone around her had one. She excelled at everything she tried; truly an individual who had the world by the tail.

All of her hopes and dreams came to an abrupt end on February 22, 2008. That is the day her parents discovered her dead on the bathroom floor a mere 40 hours after her third injection of Gardasil.

Jessie’s parents are left to deal with the fact that their precious daughter is indeed ‘One Less’ woman who will have to deal with cervical cancer.’

Chris Tarsell

Chris Tarsell:  Chris was discovered dead in her college dorm room bed 18 days after her third dose of Gardasil. Her abrupt departure from this world has left a multitude of people wondering what happened to this sweet, spirited, generous and caring individual who had been such a credit to the human race.

Chris’s coroner could not identify a cause of death in this previously healthy girl. Are those left behind supposed to believe some strange, ‘coincidental’ force of nature took her life as alleged by the CDC?

Chris’s death was not thoroughly investigated by the CDC/FDA. One would think they would at least talk with the family to gather information regarding pre- and post-injection symptoms? Shouldn’t they do a statistical analysis of post injection deaths to determine the probability of these deaths being “coincidences”?

Such an analysis was done by Dr. James Garrett in a report posted at www.gardasil-and-unexplained-deaths.com . This report concluded it is statistically untenable to claim that none of the reported deaths was related to Gardasil. Where are the government health agencies charged with protecting the health and safety of the people who pay their wages? Why are they using inadequate data provided largely by the manufacturer to track vaccine safety? Why is the fox guarding the hen house?

Annabelle
Annebelle Morin

Annabelle Morin: Annabelle ended up in the hospital with aphasia (the inability to understand spoken or written words) and great difficulty standing 16 days after her first dose of Gardasil. None of her family knew Gardasil had been administered, so no connection was made between her symptoms and the vaccine. 15 days after her second injection, this 14-year-old, French Canadian girl came home from school, had her dinner and went to take a bath and read a book. Half an hour later, with no warning, she was gone.

Once again, the coroner could not identify a cause of death. Did this spur a complete investigation to find out what may have caused her death? No! Canadian health authorities seem no more concerned than their counterparts in the United States.

One more precious life cut short leaving family, friends and neighbors wondering why no one seems to care what happened. Why is more investigation done for an accidental death than one that no one, including the coroner, can explain?

Jasmine Renata: Jasmine received her first injection of Gardasil in September 2008. One month later, she developed

Jasmine Renata

warts on her hand and very dry skin. The warts were taken care of, but shortly after the second shot, they returned along with bouts of dizziness, numbness and tingling in her hands, abdominal pain and memory losses.

On March 17, 2009, Jasmine got her third and final dose of Gardasil. Her condition quickly deteriorated. She became more agitated, continuing to complain of tingling in her hands and feet, along with various other new symptoms. Her memory losses were so severe she could not remember simple things like how to grate carrots. Shortly after, she began to experience chest pains and rapid heartbeat.

Just a little over 6 months after her third injection of Gardasil, this once healthy, hard-working 18 year-old girl died in her sleep. The 22 of September 2009 was the last day of her life.

Jasmine’s coroner ruled out drug and alcohol abuse as potential causes of her death. But, much like the other girls, no cause of death could be established. How do the health authorities in New Zealand respond when a young woman dies suddenly with no apparent cause? Unfortunately for the Renata family, they responded much like those in the United States and Canada. They do not appear to be concerned – just another coincidence, apparently.

Megan Hild

Megan Hild: At 20 years old, Megan was happy and healthy. She was studying radiology in college and looking forward to her planned marriage after graduation. She held life in the palm of her hand.

Megan was living away from home while attending college, so her mother was not totally aware of the health problems she experienced after taking Gardasil. Megan’s new medical conditions included unexplained rashes, severe stomach pains, migraines, extreme fatigue and vaginal bleeding. Imagine the shock when shortly after speaking with Megan on the phone her precious daughter was found on her knees in the shower of her college apartment – dead. Only after her sudden death would mom discover the new medical conditions Megan had after her Gardasil shots.

Megan’s mother will not have the opportunity to watch her daughter’s dreams come true. She, her family and Megan’s fiancé are left with nothing to hold onto but a piece of paper that reads, “Cause of death, unknown.”

Megan’s mother is still trying to grapple with the belief that a vaccine meant to protect her daughter’s future health may have taken her life. She does not understand why no one in a position to investigate seems to care. She does not understand why health officials appear quite content to allow the cause of Megan’s death to remain ‘undetermined.’

These young women represent a small fraction of those who paid the ultimate price following Gardasil vaccination. It is common knowledge that only 1 to 10% of adverse reactions are actually reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Are these young women representative of 50 other devastated families or, 500 others? No one knows.

Try explaining to those left behind that their loss is acceptable for society’s benefit when the only benefit Gardasil is clinically proven to provide is a 0.6% reduction in HPV 16 infections, and a 1.1% reduction in HPV 18 infections in vaccinated women versus unvaccinated women, providing they were not previously exposed to these two types of HPV prior to being vaccinated. (ATHENA study referenced below)

What about the 108 death reports filed with VAERS after HPV vaccine administration? How many others world-wide do they represent? 1,080? 10,800? Once again, no one knows. At what point does the collateral damage become unacceptable?

Explain to these families why they are left to their own devices if they want to know what caused their child’s death. Had these deaths occurred after the use of any product other than a vaccine, the offending product would have been promptly removed from the market pending the outcome of investigations to determine the cause of the problem.

There is no valid excuse for the situation to be different with vaccines. It is high time for the FDA/CDC and every other government health agency worldwide to man-up and actually do the job they are paid to do – protect public health and safety. Investigate each and every death thoroughly. Determine the causes.

It should not be up to the survivors to prove a causal relationship; it should be up to the manufacturer to show that none exists.

Freda Birrell writes to Parliament

Freda Birrel, Secretary of SaneVax Inc., sent the following letter to Peter Bottomley, member of Parliament in the United Kingdom. She expresses her concern over misleading information put forth by health authorities and pharmaceutical companies regarding HPV vaccines. As always, the benefits appear to be overstated while potential risks are understated.  Here is what she had to say:

Dear Sir Peter
You may not possibly remember me but we met many years ago when I was a youngish Conservative and my husband was a back to work miner during the 1983 Miners Strike.  I was called Freda Blackley then and received a lot of support from Mrs Thatcher, Norman Tebbitt, Lord Gould and yourself to name but a few.  I worked very closely with Irene McGibbon from Kent whose husband also returned to work.
Now I am involved in many other things, am a member of the Conservative Party for East Lothian and am still pretty active.  I have been following your questions to the Health Minister, Anne Milton regarding the HPV vaccines Cervarix and Gardasil.   There are many rumours in the press suggesting the possibility of replacing Cervarix with Gardasil in the UK because the latter does not just protect against the virus strains 16 and 18 but also for those strains 6 and 11 which cause genital warts.  From the information we have obtained from Dr Harper, the Principal Research Worker with Merck in the early stages of the vaccine trials, the following are the facts relating to studies carried out:
 
Data for Gardasil protecting against genital warts in boys only goes out to 29 months (2+ years);  they did not study whether the efficacy lasts any longer than the 29 months.   Boys data on warts also shows that immune titers wane 2-3 years faster in boys than in girls;  Girls data on warts goes for the 44 months of the phase III trials – warts was not an outcome in the five year trials – meaning it was not measured.
 
Gardasil only protects for five years at this moment in time.   Merck only has observational studies from Scandinavia that they are going to look at, but 10 year data is not yet available.   Anything Merck presents will be based on very few outcomes and on very limited specimens – all retrospective biorepository specimens.
I am attaching a paper I prepared a little while ago which has gone to Andrew Lansley, Oliver Letwin as well as to the Scottish Conservative Health Team and to Liz Smith – I have updated it slightly.  This is something I felt I had to discuss with you.   It gives you my opinions and those of Dr Diane Harper, who was involved with Merck and GlaxoSmithKline in the early days.  First of all I have been working hard to try and bring to the attention of senior politicians that Cervarix is causing harm in the UK, that young girls are becoming very ill and remaining ill over the period of time since vaccination;  young girls have even lost their sight or had other serious visual problems and I was pleased when the College of Optometrists put an article in their Bulletin in November 2010 advising all opticians in the UK that there was a possibility of visual problems following vaccination with Cervarix.  Sadly most of what I write and send falls on deaf ears except that is for the Scottish Conservatives.  Liz Smith was concerned at what I sent her and she discussed it with Murdo Fraser who appointed a postgrad to look into all of my research.  I hope to get a report when I attend the Scottish Party Conference on 18th March.  I do not mind how long they take to study my research, I just hope they can see that something is not right.   There are only so many times you can use the word “coincidental” and get away with it.
Now to Gardasil, in my paper above I want to draw your attention to the Memorial Document.   Please click on that and see some of the beautiful young girls and women who have died following vaccination with Gardasil.   Yes, just like the attitude here in the UK we get the same answer “there is no proof that Gardasil caused these deaths;  it is just “coincidental”;  sad but these things happen.”   There have been 93 deaths reported to VAERS since Gardasil came on to the market in the US in 2006 and 21,474 adverse events reported from that period until early March 2011 (this has just recently been updated).  This we know only represents between 1% and 10% of subjects who have been harmed submitting a report to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) so therefore by adding a couple of zeros that might just give a more realistic figure.   However, what is sadly real is that these girls died, all were healthy and active prior to being vaccinated and what is very concerning is that a few of them dropped dead without any warning.   Their post mortems could not identify what had caused their death so “Cause of death is unknown”.  Please see a new VAERS report which I have just received where a father was able to resuscitate his daughter – she had been vaccinated with Gardasil.  Young 14 year old girl was vaccinated on 7th October 2010 and two days later had a sudden death experience and if it was not for her father being present she would not have recovered.  Again please note the doctors cannot find out what caused this horrific experience.
 
Now please let me introduce you to girls who sadly could not be resuscitated and who are among the list which says “Cause of death cannot be identified or unknown”.
 
Christina Tarsell, Maryland, USA(age 20) – sudden death, cause of death not determined – died 18 days following her third vaccination.
Annabelle Morin, Quebec, Canada (age 14) – sudden death, 15 days after her second vaccination – died whilst having her bath.  She had an illness which required her to be sent to hospital roughly the same number of days after her first vaccination.  Cause of death cannot be identified – reason why she died is unknown.
Santana Valdez, New Mexico (age 19) – sudden death, almost four months after she had her last Gardasil injection.  Cause of death cannot be identified – reason why she died is unknown.
Jessica Erickson, New York (age 17) – sudden death, two days after her third vaccination with Gardasil.  The pathologist believed that Jessica was dead before she hit the floor.   Cause of death cannot be identified – reason why she died is unknown.
Moshella Roberts, North Carolina (age 20) – sudden death, four days after her third vaccination.  She died suddenly on her first day in her new job.
Amber Kaufmann, Missouri (age 16) – sudden death – her cause of death was listed as “cardiac disturbance of undetermined etiology” – 3 days after receiving her second injection.  She also was suffering from an illness and was prescribed many medications on the same day.
Megan Hild (age 20) – following phone call with her mother she took a shower and whatever happened she died suddenly – did not drown.  She had experienced many symptoms during her period of vaccination (believe this was her third jab) but this was not found out until after her death.   She had her own accommodation.  Cause of death cannot be identified – reason why she died is unknown.
Jasmine Renata, New Zealand (age 18) – died suddenly a few months after her third vaccination but had many serious symptoms leading up to her death.   Many of these symptoms have been experienced by many of the girls who have been vaccinated.  Cause of death cannot be identified – reason why she died is unknown.
Please read these stories in the Memorial Document.  If these young girls above and all the rest who have died – along with two boys that we know of who also were vaccinated – had nothing in common, had been ill, or had been on a trip abroad where perhaps they picked up an unusual virus then and only then could you say “it is a coincidence”.  This is not how it happened, all of these girls and the other 86 subjects had one thing in common and that is they were all vaccinated with the HPV vaccine Gardasil.  The authorities state that there is no pattern, well the pattern is there for all to see but sadly in this world we live in it appears that we dare not condemn a vaccine otherwise we are branded as being anti-vaccine.
I am Secretary of SaneVax Inc and our web is www.sanevax.org    We stand for Safe, Affordable, Necessary and Effective Vaccines.  It is as simple as that, we do not condemn vaccines for the sake of it and we stand by what SaneVax represents but we truly believe that Gardasil and Cervarix are not safe.   I know most of the families of the girls who died above, have spoken with them and cried with them.   All I ask is that you look into this more closely please and ask as many questions as you can to try and have a proper investigation into both of these vaccines, for the true facts to be revealed and not to depend on the MHRA to come up with their normal answers that “these vaccines and safe and effective”.   Perhaps you need to ask the MHRA why it has not informed our Parliament of the number of deaths and serious side effects which have already been reported to VAERS concerning Gardasil.  To the best of my knowledge there has not been anything put in writing to ask for an investigation into why young, healthy girls are suddenly dying after being vaccinated with this HPV4?  Do we really not care any more or is it the usual statement “protect the vaccine at the cost of the child”.
If our government decides to take on board Gardasil as the UK HPV vaccine then please take note of this information.  Will they turn round and say to a mother whose daughter has just died ‘sorry but the vaccine did not cause her death, we do not know what did, just one of those unfortunate coincidences’.  That is what is happening in America, New Zealand and Canada so please do not let that happen to any of our girls here in the UK.  We have more than enough problems with Cervarix and my hope is that someone somewhere sees sense and has at least a thorough investigation into both of these vaccines.
I would appreciate it if you could discuss this with the Health Minister.  If you should wish to have any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Yours sincerely
Freda Birrell
(Conservative Member – East Lothian, Scotland)
