British Society for Ecological Medicine Conference
Spring Scientific Meeting March 11, 2011
Hallam Centre, London
The Health Hazards of Disease Prevention – Vaccinations and Pharmacoprophylaxis
Leslie Carol Botha, Vice-President, Public Relations, SANE Vax Inc. and Freda Birrell, Secretary, Sane Vax Inc were invited to present a power point titled: ‘Global Concerns about HPV Vaccines’ at the BSEM Spring Meeting. Botha and Birrell are part of an international team who have joined together to bring to the attention of the media, politicians, medical experts and consumers their genuine concerns over the unnecessary devastation from adverse injuries and deaths occurring on a worldwide basis from HPV4-Gardasil (Merck Pharmaceutical Co) and HPV2 – Cervarix (GlaxoSmithKline). Botha is a women’s health educator, broadcast journalist, author and publisher from Colorado, USA and Birrell is a political lobbyist from Scotland, representing the UK.
SANE Vax Inc. was formed in 2010 as a non profit organization focused on gathering peer-reviewed and government studies on vaccinations and the mechanisms of actions that may be causing adverse reactions and ‘new medical conditions’ to unsuspecting medical consumers. The name, S.A.N.E. Vax, stands for Safe, Affordable, Necessary and Effective Vaccinations and was chosen to attract physicians, and consumers starting to question vaccine safety and efficacy. 106 countries have visited the SANE Vax Inc. web site since its September 2010 debut.
The SANE Vax mission is to promote Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. We believe in science-based medicine. Our primary goal is to provide the information necessary for you to make informed decisions regarding your health and well-being. We also provide referrals to helpful resources for those unfortunate enough to have experienced vaccine-related injuries.
Freda Birrell opened the presentation by thanking BSEM Chairman, David Freed for the great honour to present research and data on Gardasil and Cervarix, stating it was a privilege to have been invited to the prestigious conference.
She introduced the first slide which reported HPV4 and HPV2 adverse injury and death statistics from the U.S. VAERS – Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System database. As of February 2011, 94 deaths had been recorded and 21,634 adverse side effects had been reported – with an estimated 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured population filing with VAERS. Birrell explained that as this only represents between 1% and 10% of those victims filing a report, then by adding one or two zeros to these figures would raise the rates to an appalling level.
It was also noted that a young girl was a victim of sudden death post- Gardasil vaccination and if her father had not been present to resuscitate her, she too would have been part of the death statistics.
