This is a warning for all parents and grandparents: Drug giant Merck wants to inject every one of your young girls and boys with Gardasil, the controversial HPV vaccine. It’s controversial, of course, because it’s been shown to prevent a few types of human papillomavirus, but it certainly is not a “cervical cancer vaccine,” as it’s sometimes touted. In addition, the total reported adverse side effects (including deaths) linked to the vaccine are staggering. And it’s also very expensive — about $400 for the three required shots.
But all those drawbacks don’t bother the mainstream media. Not a bit! It’s like major media outlets are playing whack- a-mole – always on a worldwide lookout for the slightest shred of good news about Gardasil to pop up, and then…WHACK! they hit us over the head with it.

In a new Australian study reported by Reuters, researchers found that Gardasil use helped reduce the number of cervix abnormalities in young girls by “as much as 50 percent.”
That sounds pretty impressive. But buried in a lower paragraph is the laughably unimpressive truth: Among vaccinated girls, the rate of high-grade cervical abnormalities was 0.42 percent. Among unvaccinated girls: 0.8 percent.
The difference was just a few tenths of a single percentage point! And yet when you finesse the math, it comes out like a great headline and a big win for Gardasil.
In another recent study, Austrian researchers tested more than 100 men for HPV infection and found that about 10 percent had high-risk HPV, but none showed clinical symptoms of infection.
CNN – one of the media’s most generous Gardasil enablers – reported on the research, and offered this quote from the vice chair of the urology department at the University of Kansas: “Not only girls, but boys should be vaccinated because of these findings.”
Wow – that’s a huge jump to THAT conclusion! The study didn’t involve vaccinations in any form. And yet based on the results of his very small study, he’s ready to vaccinate every boy with Gardasil.
