It has been well over a decade since Merck’s human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil was approved for use. During that time, layer upon layer of research fraud, statistical manipulation, and the purposeful omission of inconvenient facts has created one of medicine’s biggest scandals.

In 2017, historically pro-Big Pharma and pro-vaccine outlet launched an eight-month investigation, presumable to debunk the ‘anti-vaccine’ debate once and for all, into the science behind Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil. What Slate found wasn’t an open and shut case. Since its inception, the research leading to Gardasil’s regulatory approval has been hotly contested. And now the findings from Slate’s investigation have joined in public lockstep, with the same concerns ‘anti-vaxxers’ have voiced for years, to criticize the lack of science underpinning the HPV vaccine.

Slate’s article reports:

An eight-month investigation by Slate found the major Gardasil trials were flawed from the outset, however, and that regulators allowed unreliable methods to be used to test the vaccine’s safety.

It is important to note here that, as Slate rightly explained in their article, drug regulators look much more seriously at potential side effects that surface during pre-licensure studies rather than after a product has been put on the market. So how were Merck’s pre-licensure Gardasil trials flawed?

Slate obtained more than 2,300 pages of documents through Freedom-of-Information requests from hospitals and health authorities. The documents and information led Slate to suggest there were “…inadequacies built into Merck’s major clinical tests of Gardasil.”  Slate’s investigation stated:

To track the safety of its product, the drugmaker used a convoluted method that made objective evaluation and reporting of potential side effects impossible during all but a few weeks of its years-long trials. At all other times, individual trial investigators used their personal judgment to decide whether or not to report any medical problem as an adverse event—essentially, as a potential side effect worth evaluating further.

Rather than tracking all side effects (adverse reactions) the same, investigators were free to cherry-pick reactions they felt were important essentially handicapping the integrity and quality of the Gardasil trials.

After the disingenuous Gardasil trials that led to its regulatory licensing, the global public at large became the final phase of testing. In the real world, where adverse reactions and inconvenient findings can’t be discarded by Merck researchers, the US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is the only effort in place to chronicle issues with the HPV vaccine. VAERS has logged 54,105 adverse reactions related to the HPV vaccine. Among those, 2,227 are listed as “disabled,” 10,416 are listed as “did not recover,” 7,418 are listed as “serious,” and 362 deaths have been reported. Many other reports were listed on VAERS including emergency room visits after vaccination [14,928], hospitalized [5,155], and life-threatening [868].

A US Health and Human Services-funded study by Harvard Medical School tracked reporting to VAERS over a three-year period at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care involving 715,000 patients and found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.” A US House Report similarly stated: “Former FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler has estimated that VAERS reports currently represent only a fraction of the serious adverse events.” Recalculating the VAERS HPV reports using Harvard Medical School’s findings of only one percent reporting, the current VAERS information from the HPV vaccine reporting could in reality be as high as 5,410,500 adverse reactions, 1,041,600 disabled, and 36,200 deaths.

VigiAccess is an interface that houses data on medicines and vaccine side effects (adverse reactions) reported to the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring (WHO PIDM). The system shows 192,039 reported adverse reactions globally for the three HPV vaccines combined.

Since regulators look much more seriously at potential side effects that surface during pre-licensure studies, official efforts to investigate the scale of injuries from the HPV vaccine has been little to none. We have witnessed a global generation left debilitated by health problems from the HPV vaccine that regulators, global health authorities, and the establishment medical community at large have flatly ignored.

Investigations from around the world in Ireland, Colombia, Japan, Denmark, American, Africa and others have shown near exact patterns of severe adverse reactions from the HPV vaccine programs once they are initiated, and in some cases forced, by government health agencies. Japan’s health agency officially retracted its HPV recommendation only months after mounting injury caused massive pushback from the public.

700 girls in Colombia are currently in the middle of a major class action lawsuit against Merck Sharp & Dohme for damages caused by the Gardasil vaccine.

The 12 Days of Skyhorse Publishing, Day 11 —  ‘The Setup: How Corporate Greed Damaged Thousands of Children and Censored Andrew Wakefield’

We’d like to express our gratitude to Tony Lyons, Publisher at Skyhorse Publishing in New York City. Skyhorse is one of the fastest growing independent publishers in America and one of the few to tackle the toughest, most controversial topics in health and autism. For the next 12 days, we’ll be creating a list of books that we hope will interest you. Some will be very familiar, like those from Dan, Mark and me (Kim) and others we hope will be new sources of information and stories to help you navigate your family’s autism journey.

 Day 11: The Setup by Martin Walker

In 1988, the British government launched the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, even though central figures knew that the vaccine could cause brain damage, autism, and other problems.

The Setup traces the extended efforts made by drug companies, with help from the British government, to cover up their responsibility for putting a vaccine known to be damaging on the market. It details the way public relations companies, social media, legal teams, judges, and reporters all utilized covert media tactics and public statements to deceive, ultimately leading to the British General Medical Council (GMC) initiating the famous trial against Andrew Wakefield, Professor Walker-Smith, and Dr. Simon Murch. The vaccine was on the market for over four years, but the parents of the nearly 1,600 affected were not only excluded from that trial but are still awaiting their day in court. Instead, they have all had to shoulder an immense financial burden and many have become the subject of court actions over spurious charges. The trial also destroyed Wakefield’s reputation―despite the fact that within months, a high court judge declared Walker-Smith innocent on the grounds that the GMC panel, acting as jury, had misunderstood the evidence.

Any parent whose child has become sick after a vaccine will appreciate the dedication of investigator Martin J. Walker, and his exposure of a cover-up the British government and pharmaceutical companies hoped to hide forever. Available Spring 2018.

@realdonaldtrump Why I’m not mad about your new CDC director

[SVC comment regarding Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, recently appointed by Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, to succeed Tom Frieden as the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): There is currently much speculation as to whether Dr. Fitzgerald will make any attempt to restore integrity and accountability to the CDC. In particular, CDC’s vaccine program — which RFK Jr. has called a “cesspool” of corruption — must be completely overhauled, including the removal of all profit incentive to benefit the CDC. 

It’s worth noting that Dr. Fitzgerald is an obstetrician-gynecologist and a former president of the Georgia OB-GYN Society. As we observe Dr. Fitzgerald as she settles in at CDC, in keen hope that she will do the right thing for women, infants and children, let’s never forget that most of the official package inserts provided by the vaccine manufacturers contain language similar to the following:

“Safety and effectiveness of have not been established in pregnant women or nursing mothers.” (See Doctors Give Flu Shots to Pregnant Women Despite Evidence of Harm to Fetus)

This is only the tip of the iceberg with regard to the harm caused by the current vaccination schedule. So, we watch, to see whether Dr. Fitzgerald will do everything in her power to protect informed consent and choice in medical risk-taking, including vaccinations.]

July 7, 2017 ~ By Levi Quackenboss

Our troops are up in arms over the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s article that ran last week, breaking the news that Trump is considering Brenda Fitzgerald, the Georgia Health Commissioner, as the new Director of the CDC. Her confirmation was announced by HHS two hours ago. 

Is Dr. Brenda what we call “vaccine friendly?” Not in the slightest. Under her reign, Georgia instituted a requirement that notarized religious vaccine exemptions affirmed that vaccines are necessary to prevent the spread of dangerous diseases, vaccines are safe, and that unvaccinated kids are at risk of spreading those diseases to other people, including to the parent who is signing the exemption.

Three years ago Dr. Brenda wrote a love letter to the prenatal Tdap called “Babies Need Their Vaccines“ for the same newspaper that had the scoop on her federal appointment.

Do you know what really gets under my skin? Calling vaccines by a name that gives their ownership to a newborn. It’s gross. They are not the baby’s shots. They are Merck’s shots and Pfizer’s shots, and the pediatrician bought those shots, so if anything, they are the doctor’s shots.  “Babies Need Doctor Shots” is a more accurate title for her essay.

In her letter she makes sweeping platitudes such as, “I’ve heard all the arguments against vaccination. All have been debunked.” Sweet Jesus, I don’t even know what she’s talking about–  “all” of these vaccinated vs. unvaccinated studies that debunk the damage our children live with every day?

She signs off with, “I am a mother. I am vaccinated. And I ask you to join me.”

Bless her heart. This lady is 72 years old. She got all the way to the age of 10 before the polio vaccine was even invented. If we didn’t vaccinate kids until they were 10 our autism rates would be down to the 1 in 10,000 people that actually have a genetic predisposition for it.

Anyway. She’s obviously not a top 100 choice for any of us.

I don’t know why she’s been appointed. I watch House of Cards so I can only imagine the deals that go down before this kind of decision is made. She’s had political aspirations for a while; she’s run for Congress twice and lost.

In my opinion, the only business Dr. Brenda has being director of the CDC is if she’s there to dismantle it because she’d eventually be out of a job anyway, and Trump or someone else has promised to give her a juicy position afterward.
