[SaneVax: Is cervical cancer a substantial threat in your country? Do you have access to good OB/GYN care? Does HPV truly cause cancer, or is it simply a contributing factor? Does your lifestyle increase your potential risk of cervical cancer? Is there a chance you have been previously exposed to vaccine-relevant strains of HPV? Are you at risk for serious adverse events after HPV vaccination? All of these questions should be answered prior to making a decision as to whether or not HPV vaccines are right for you. Why are government health authorities not making sure you have these answers prior to promoting mass vaccination programs?]
Brit Scientists Show HPV Vaccine Is Not Justified Anywhere
By Heidi Stevenson, Gaia Health
A British study thoroughly condemns the claims made by Gates Foundation-related PACE to support HPV vaccines in India. Though not stated by the authors, it clearly shows that it makes no sense in western nations, either.
Just as it is in the west, the HPV vaccine is being heavily marketed in India. The heavy pressure to roll it out has resulted in tragic deaths of girls given the vaccines. Now, a report by the British Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine has come out with a study demonstrating that the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, cannot be justified in India. More scandalous, though, is that their results clearly reflect that these vaccines are even less justified in the western world, including the USA, UK, Europe, Canada, and Australia. That, though, is never mentioned in their report.
The primary point brought out by the study(1) is that the rate of cervical cancer is not high enough to justify the cost and risks associated with Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines. Further, the authors noted that the rate of cervical cancer in India has dropped dramatically in a little more than 20 years, from 43 cases per 100,000 in 1982-83 down to 22 per 100,000 in 2004-05. This point alone should clarify that the cause of cervical cancer is likely mostly associated with something that’s controllable in the environment. India’s standard of living has risen dramatically in the last 25 years, and that may be the most significant factor in cervical cancer rates.
The Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), which has close ties with the Bill Gates Foundation(2), is the primary force behind pushing HPV vaccines in India. Of course, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) also actively push them because they manufacture the vaccines.
The British study has harsh words for the conclusions that PATH reached. They quote the PATH document, “Shaping a Strategy to Introduce HPV Vaccines in India, “Results from the HPV Vaccines’ states that ‘in raw numbers, India has the largest burden of cancer of the cervix of any country worldwide.”
