As you know, I strongly oppose the practice of vaccinating young girls and boys against the human papilloma virus (HPV). We always knew these HPV vaccines — at best — could only protect women against a few of the 80 strains of HPV associated with cervical cancer. So they never fully protected anyone.
Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning of the problems with the vaccine.
In fact, according to a disturbing, recent study, women who received the HPV vaccine Gardasil were more likely to become infected with certain higher-risk strains of the HPV virus compared to women who didn’t get the vaccine. (Pathologists consider HPV strains “high risk” if they cause cellular changes that can eventually lead to cancer.)
As you probably already know, HPV is a common virus that spreads through sexual contact. In fact, it’s the most common sexually transmitted disease in the world. And 80 percent of women will contract at least one strain of HPV by the age 50.
In rare cases, the HPV virus can cause cervical cancer. So big pharma promotes the HPV vaccine as ironclad prevention against cervical cancer. But that claim simply isn’t true. In fact, this new research shows the exact opposite.
Gardasil raises higher-risk HPV by 52 percent!
Researchers analyzed data from the prestigious Nurse’s Health Study (NHANES) on nearly 600 women ages 20 to 26 years, including 80 women who received the original Gardasil HPV vaccine.
The researchers found the women in the study who received the Gardasil vaccine were indeed less likely to become infected with the four strains of the virus included the vaccine (HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18). But they were also more likely to become infected with other higher-risk HPV strains not included in the vaccine.
In fact, about 61 percent of the women who received the vaccine were infected with another type of higher-risk HPV. By contrast, just 40 percent of women who didn’t receive the vaccine became infected with another higher-risk strain.
Of course, the mainstream medical headlines didn’t focus on this startling fact.
Instead, they led with the suggestion women should get yet another, newer vaccine called Gardasil 9 — in addition to the original Gardasil.
Approved in December 2014, Gardasil 9 protects against five more strains of HPV. But as I said earlier, we know of at least 80 strains that can cause cervical cancer.
Just how many dangerous vaccines will be needed?
But perhaps the most troubling aspect of all is that we already have a highly safe and effective way to prevent cervical cancer.
Pap smear screenings trump HPV vaccines on all counts
Pap smear screenings have been effectively used to detect and prevent cervical cancer for more than half-a-century. In fact, the government-industrial-medical complex could only hope their other cancer screening techniques were as safe and effective as the universally available Pap smear.
When I worked as a hospital pathologist, we had an entire team of trained cytologists who reviewed Pap smears for analysis by the pathologists — as does every hospital and women’s health clinic around the world.
The truth is, we never needed the HPV vaccine in the first place.
I remember hearing about the idea of developing an HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer from a Washington “insider” about 20 years ago. I was wary just knowing some of the characters involved in making this bright idea into a profitable new business venture.
Of course, it required all kinds of political pressure at the federal and state levels to get it approved — and then to mandate public school children take it. Merck eventually acquired the vaccine and brought it to market. And the woman who served as head of the CDC when the original vaccine was being pushed on young women and girls is now ensconced in a high-paid position with Merck. Coincidence? You be the judge.
Today, a lot of evidence suggests the original Gardasil vaccine is itself hazardous. Countless reports link Gardasil with serious side effects, injuries, and even deaths.
Now we hear women “need” yet another HPV vaccine, essentially to protect them from the higher risk of the first vaccine?
Nowadays — politically correct health “experts” wage a widespread campaign to discredit citizens and health professionals who remain skeptical of more and more vaccines. It looks like the replacement of science with “scientism,” as I reported in a Daily Dispatch last summer.
I lost faith in government health bureaucrats a long time ago. They say “we’re from the government, and we’re here to help you.” But instead, we have to be on our guard against “Gardasil” and some of the other vaccines they insist will “protect” us.
