Is Gardasil’s Trail of Deception Actually Hiding the True Scope of Deaths and Injuries?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Dec 08, 2010 – While the number of deaths and serious adverse events reported due to Merck’s controversial Gardasil vaccine continues to grow alarmingly, the true number of people who have been killed or injured by the deadly vaccine is likely far higher. The truth about Gardasil has been deliberately hidden through a trail of deception, cover-ups, ignorance and under-reporting that dates back to the very inception of the vaccine.
The first key deception occurred during Gardasil trials. Instead of using a saline solution as the placebo, Merck used the vaccine’s carrier agent minus only the HPV virus components. In addition to sodium chloride and water normally found in a saline solution placebo, the placebo Merck chose also contained dangerous aluminum along with polysorbate 80 and sodium borate.
Although polysorbate 80 is used as a food additive to increase the water solubility of flavoring oils, injection is quite different. According to the polysorbate 80 Material Safety Data Sheet, it may be carcinogenic as well as mutagenic. When injected into prepubescent rats, polysorbate 80 caused abnormal growth of reproductive organs and made the rats sterile. When used intravenously with vitamins, it has been known to cause anaphylactic shock.
An analysis of the actual trial data for Gardasil reveals that a shocking 73.3 percent of the participants who received Gardasil acquired a new medical condition ranging from flu-like symptoms to paralysis. Almost 60% had systemic reactions. Though the “placebo” recipients had similar results, obviously no mere saline solution would have produced even a fraction of such reactions. The results would likely have been even higher if the study had lasted longer than 15 days.
The lack of dangers in the prescribing information furnished to doctors by Merck and the VAERS requirement that only serious and life-threatening events be reported both likely play big roles in the under-reporting of Gardasil reactions. Doctors are reluctant to report deaths and injuries from anything they administered or performed in the first place, and the lack of information and guidelines have insured that they are far less likely to report anywhere near all the adverse reactions from Gardasil.
Other factors which help skew the picture of Gardasil dangers include:
*The rate of deaths and adverse reactions are reported as a percentage of doses distributed, not doses actually administered.
*Gardasil is given in a series of three injections. Thus the number of adverse reactions per number of patients is triple the adverse events per injection.
*Many parents are not aware of the definition of adverse event or that they can file their own VAERS report.
Disturbingly, already reported deaths and reactions may be being hidden or altered to be attributed to other causes. When SANEVAX looked at the latest reported VAERS totals, they discovered that five previous death cases are now inexplicably missing.
Another Gardasil danger which has also been largely hidden and ignored is the danger presented to young women who have already been infected with HPV. Despite the fact that girls (and boys) can be exposed to HPV viruses from birth onwards, there is no screening required and not even a recommendation for screening before a young woman reaches the age of 21.
In a paper Merck submitted to the FDA on young women who tested positive for the HPV strains 16 or 18, the facts are alarming. Protection against the HPV virus for young infected women was much worse than if they had not been vaccinated at all. According to the paper, infected women had who were given Gardasil had a 44.6% increased risk of abnormal cervical cell development than did non vaccinated women.
The true magnitude of Gardasil’s harm and dangers could be horrendous. Reports for other vaccines deaths and adverse reactions are estimated to represent no more than 10% of the actual totals. With Gardasil, estimates range as low as only 1%.
If 10% are reporting, there could be as many as 890 deaths and 205,000 adverse events. If only 1% are actually reported, there could be 8,900 deaths and 2,050,000 adverse events.
Behind Gardasil’s trail of deception is a very large and mostly hidden trail of tears. Parents and the general public richly deserve to be told the full truth to keep that trail from turning into a raging flood of sorrow and suffering.
