Dr. Diana Harper helped design and carry out the safety and effectiveness studies to get Gardasil approved by the FDA. She was a paid speaker and consultant for Merck pharmaceuticals (the company behind the vaccine), and she has authored many of the scholarly papers on Gardasil. Dr. Harper made her surprising statement at the 4th International Conference on Vaccination. Dr. Harper ascertained that the cervical cancer risk in the U.S. is already extremely low, and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States; and that the vaccine may not protect for longer than five years….(crickets)
So if the risk is already low that one will die from cervical cancer, and will continue to stay about the same, and by the time a twelve year old becomes sexually active, the vaccine may not even work anymore, I had to ask, ‘is this risk worth me telling my teenage family members and patients to get three shots of a vaccine that may not really protect them!?? Where they will still have to get pap smears each year, they will still have to practice safe sex, and that their body might not handle too well!??’ There are plenty of articles that state this is not in fact what Dr. Harper meant, so it’s like everything else in life, it’s up for interpretation.
Hmmm…well let’s go one step further and review some of the adverse events that have been associated with the vaccine. The noted adverse events have raged from sudden death, severe neurological problems (severe convulsions, extreme pain, paralysis, difficulty walking), lupus, brain inflammation, blood clotting issues, sudden onset diabetes, serious allergic reactions, fertility issues, and permanent disability. In the United States there have been over 22,000 adverse events ‘reported’ since 2006 (with over 57million doses distributed across the US, this is a very small percentage) and twenty deaths that, depending on who you ask, have been reportedly associated with the vaccine.
