The HPV Vaccine: Preventative Medicine or Human Sacrifice?

Reports of adverse reactions to the new HPV vaccine Gardasil are escalating. One particularly heart-wrenching example is the story of 12-year-old Brittany who lost all feeling in her leg and collapsed two weeks after receiving the Gardasil vaccine.

Adding insult to injury, people who are injured by the vaccine cannot even sue Merck, the maker of the Gardasil vaccine, because it is part of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund.

While the FDA claims adverse reactions to Gardasil are rare, a review of the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) data shows that several thousands of adverse reactions have been reported in the United States alone. And hundreds of Australian girls have experienced side effects like paralysis, dizzy spells and seizures, but Australia's Department of Health and Ageing refuses to release any details.

Further, The European Medicines Agency reported that two women died not long after they received the vaccine, one in Austria and one in Germany. The Financial Times also reported that there have been 11 deaths and a wide array of other adverse reactions, including:
- Bells Palsy
- Guillan-Barre syndrome
- Seizures
- Blood clotting and heart problems
- Miscarriages & fetal abnormalities amongst pregnant, vaccinated women

If you are considering getting the Gardisil vaccine for yourself or for your daughter, please read this report first so you have all of the facts, history and a better understanding of why you have been led to believe that it's necessary: The Great HPV Vaccine Hoax Exposed by Mike Adams. Or read more, from Dr. Mercola, below:

Dr. Joseph Mercola comments: Thanks to Merck's aggressive advertising campaign for Gardasil -- the one that features young girls chanting "I want to be one less" -- mothers and daughters across the United States are lining up to be vaccinated. Yet, once you know the facts about this vaccine and HPV, the virus it supposedly prevents, it becomes very clear just how useless -- and dangerous -- this vaccine really is.
Getting the Facts About HPV

There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs). Of them, only 10-30 can cause cervical cancer. The rest can lead to skin infections that cause genital warts or common warts on your hands and feet.

These are very common viruses, and an estimated 25 million Americans have HPV infections. However, this is NOT cause for alarm because, as even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states: "In 90% of cases, your bodyís immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within two years."

This is true whether the infection is the type that can cause warts or cancer.

Meanwhile, Merckís Gardasil vaccine contains just four types of HPV. If you contract one of the 96+ types that arenít included, youíre out of luck. And, if youíve already been exposed to one of the four types of virus in the vaccine, it doesnít work against those either.
Some Scary Facts About Gardasil

The long-term effects of using this vaccine on young girls is unknown, and in the short-term, many girls have already begun to suffer. Common side effects include:
- Pain, swelling, itching and redness at the injection site
- Fever
- Nausea
- Dizziness
- Vomiting
- Fainting

Severe allergic reactions, including difficulty breathing, have also been reported, as has: - Swollen glands
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Headaches
- Joint pain
- Aching muscles
- Unusual tiredness and weakness

As of last October, 3,461 complaints about Gardasil had been filed with the FDA's Vaccine Adverse Event Report System, and 11 women died after exposure to the vaccine. Meanwhile, aside from being injected with four types of HPV proteins, girls and women who receive this vaccine should know what else is in the shot:

1. Aluminum adjuvants, which have been linked to neurological damage including multiple sclerosis, Alzheimerís disease, and Parkinsonís disease.
2. Polysorbate 80, which has been linked to infertility in mice.
3. Sodium borate, a main ingredient in roach killer.
Be "One Less" Woman To Get Gardasil

I think this would be a more appropriate message to send out to young women. There is absolutely no reason to risk the serious side effects of this vaccine to prevent an infection that goes away on its own 90 percent of the time. And thereís no guarantee that youíll be protected anyway, since you can still get HPV once youíve had the vaccine. Itís really a no-win situation for those who receive it. Of course, you can radically reduce your risk of getting HPV in the first place if you follow safe-sex practices, or wait to have sex until youíre in a committed relationship. Then, keep your immune system in tip-top shape, and it will be more than able to shake any HPV virus that comes its way.
