Gardasil is becoming a living hell for many young women
By Cynthia A. Janak

Since writing my series on this abomination to young women I have gotten many emails from many countries around the world. The stories make me weep with a sadness that comes from my very being. I want to scream at the creators of that horrible commercial that talks about one less. It is right in one respect one less vibrant, healthy young woman. That commercial is a lie and should be banned from ever being televised. It should be destroyed.

I am once again going to give you the horror stories about this travesty but first I am going to give you the new statistics about this destroyer of young lives.

As of today, December 10, 2007 this is what has been reported. I added together HPV and HPV4.

4306 reported incidents + 2141 (newly found) = 6447 (see chart below)
71 were considered life threatening
173 were hospitalized
730 had not recovered at the time of the report
93 are disabled at the time of the report
10 have died

As I have done in the past articles I get my stats from the National Vaccine Information Center — MedAlerts.

5238 reported incidents +2141 = 7379 (I will update the multiple incident number at a future date.)
89 were considered life threatening
204 were hospitalized
913 had not recovered at the time of the report
124 are disabled at the time of the report
13 have died

Because of this vaccine three more young women died and we have an increase of 932 incidents reported. That is approximately 310+ girls that had an adverse reaction to this travesty every month.

Here are only a few more stories.

My daughter received the Gardasil vaccine on Monday, Aug 6th, and it was given with several other vaccines. We were released within a minute or so after injection. Within 5 minutes my daughter had a seizure in the car. I am positive it was the Gardasil vaccine and have t warning patients and parents of these side effects.

My daughter, 21 had the HPV vaccine administered on 8/8/07, at 0400 am on 8/9/07 she fainted and had a seizure. She is now hospitalized with slurred speech and left-side weakness. Please, give me more insight into this relatively new vaccine. Is there anything to counter-act the effect of Garasil.

I am 21 and received the vaccine in dec and have fainted 20 times since then. I have been hospitalized and am still under the care of a cardiologist. I was healthy and athletic up until the vaccine, now I am always tired and hurt from fainting.

Both my daughters, ages 17 and 14, received their first Gardasil shot in mid-July. They did not have any other immunizations at the same time. They had their meningitis vaccine the year before. After their Gardasil shot, they seemed fine, just a little sore at the injection site. But a month later my 14-year-old had a seizure with rigid left side. (Coincidentally, received the shot in her left arm). Her cat scan came back clean, but she must have an MRI and an EEG, and see a neurologist. I'm seeing incidents of seizures and other side effects immediately following administering the vaccine, but has anyone had any symptoms a month or more later? I was trying to do research, but there's so much out there, and conflicting reports, and I just get overwhelmed and confused. Now I don't know if I should have them continue the sequence. Insight from anyone would be appreciated!

I have had my symptoms for 8 months now and I received the 2nd dose but was advised by my neurologist not to receive the 3rd.

in June, I received the first HPV shot and the meningitis, I have no clue which one came first, but within 5 minutes (I made it to the lobby) and then I got dizzy and collapsed (still conscious) and was fine after having a sprite and food.

this past thursday I received the 2nd, I was a little dizzy right at first but that is normal for me with any shot, but I was fine. I am now itching real bad, and have a rash on my back, up the back of one leg, on one arm, well yeah you get the picture.....

I have 3 daughters 15, and twins that just turned 13, all 3 are petite and thin. The first two injections went

fine. On Tuesday, August 21 they went in for their last injection the nurse asked that all 3 girls go in separate rooms and lay down because some girls can get dizzy. All 3 of the girls complained that the fluid going in really burned their arms and that they felt very dizzy. By the time they got to the car they all began to get headaches and lasted through the night. On Sunday afternoon (5 days after the last injection) one of my twins suffered a seizure, there was no warning. She went by ambulance to the hospital. All tests; CT scan, chest xray, blood work, urinalysis, and MRI have all been normal. She is currently doing a EEG for 48 hours to see what caused her seizure. I believe it is connected to the HPV vaccine. I still worry for my other 2 daughters as well. After speaking with the pediatrician yesterday he said he spoke with Merck (the manufacturer) and they said seizures were not connected to the vaccine. After researching it, my pediatrician said he had found 2 cases where paralysis had occurred, he now refuses to administer the vaccine for at least a year until further research is done. Please think twice about this vaccine, I am thankful for many reasons but mostly because my daughter had been in a wave pool without an adult the day before the seizure and would have drowned had it occurred that day!! If I knew what I know now I would never get the vaccine.

There were more but I did not want to put them all here. I cried when I read these stories of innocent girls being assaulted by this vaccine. Merck should be brought up on charges of battery and assault.

Here is an article from Australia.

Outcry in Australia Over Adverse Side-effects of Gardasil, the Cervical Cancer Vaccine

Cancer News
Posted online: Thursday, December 06, 2007 at 11:39:58 AM

MORE than 17 girls a week have been experiencing adverse reactions such as seizures and numbness, after taking Gardasil, since it became widely distributed in April, Australian newspapers report.

But the Department of Health and Ageing, while revealing the number of reactions, is refusing to release the details of them — despite growing controversy overseas, including links to at least seven deaths.

There have been previous reports in Australia of young girls fainting, experiencing seizures, dizzy spells and paralysis, including 20 students at a Melbourne private school who reported being sick after having an injection in late May.

The Daily Telegraph s that as of November 30 there have been 496 adverse reaction reports filed to the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA).

Of those, 468 of the reported cases had the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine as the sole suspected cause.

"Young girls are experiencing severe headaches, dizziness, temporary loss of vision and some girls have lost consciousness during what appear to be seizures," said Vicky Debold, health policy analyst for the National Vaccine Information Center, a nonprofit watchdog organization that was created in the early 1980s to prevent vaccine injuries.

Gardasil side-effects controversy

Reporter: Laura Sparkes
Broadcast Date: December 07, 2007

But there have been side effects for a few hundred: nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, paralysis.

Allie Harvey lined up along with 2.2 million other Australian women to be administered with Gardasil, the cervical cancer vaccine developed by former Australian of the Year Professor Ian Frazer.

"I had a headache, I was dizzy, I was nauseous, my right side was weak, my right fist was clenched and I was hallucinating," Allie said.

"It was absolutely terrifying because I didn't know why it was happening. I felt absolutely terrified."

Gardasil has been hailed as a medical breakthrough, the first ever immunization against cancer; but no-one was warned about this.

Far more frightening for the year 12 student — who received the first of three injections for the vaccine at school courtesy of a government sponsored initiative — was the response she received from the health professionals around her.

"The nurses that had come in from the government told me that I didn't have a rash, that it wasn't a reaction to the immunization, that I was pretty much making things up," Allie said.

But Allie wasn't alone. Jade Foreman, 15, is another of the 496 young women who have reported having adverse reactions to the vaccine.

"I woke up one morning and tried to stand up and I couldn't put pressure on my legs, I had funny feelings in my legs," Jade said.

Since receiving the life saving injection at her school in June this year, Jade has been under intense physio to enable her to walk again. She is only able to cope with two hours of school per day.

"I now have no social life," Jade said. "The pain is ruling my life."

"Apart from the lower back pain and the neck and the middle back pain, I'm having trouble with my arms dropping things and funny sensations in my arms. It's just ruining my life."

Scientist and health researcher Bronwyn Hancock believes the mass-distribution of Gardasil is simply unsafe.

"The Gardasil vaccine has never been shown to be safe or effective in preventing cervical cancer," Bronwyn said. "There are so many limitations with the testing that they've done."

As a member of the Vaccination Information Service, an anti-immunization group, Bronwyn says the research behind Gardasil is too flimsy and that the 18 million women worldwide who've already had the vaccine could be setting themselves up for broader health and fertility issues.

"They themselves admit they haven't tested it to show that it doesn't cause infertility or cancer," she said.

"They make a lot of money out of making vaccines and selling them and the government is very heavily influenced by big business, including the pharmaceutical industry."

And now we have Cervarix, GlaxoSmithKline's HPV vaccine. This one is a doozy. They want to inject our daughters with a laxative instead of Borax like Merck's vaccine. Doesn't that sound healthy?;_ID=45058

International News | HPV Vaccine Cervarix Approved in Australia, GSK Says

[May 22, 2007]

GlaxoSmithKline on Monday announced that the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration has approved its human papillomavirus vaccine Cervarix for girls and women ages 10 to 45, Reuters reports (Potter/Hirschler, Reuters, 5/21). According to Dow Jones, the approval is the first "major market" license for Cervarix. GSK also has applied for approval of the vaccine in the U.S. and Europe (Berton, Dow Jones, 5/21).

Cervarix and Merck's HPV vaccine Gardasil have been shown to be 100% effective in preventing infection with HPV strains 16 and 18, which together cause about 70% of cervical cancer cases. Researchers in a 2006 study published in the online edition of the Lancet also found that Cervarix prevented infection with HPV strains 31 and 45, which together with strains 16 and 18 cause more than 80% of cervical cancer cases. GSK in January announced that it would begin a trial to determine whether Cervarix provides better protection against cervical cancer than Gardasil (Kaiser Daily Women's Health Policy Report, 4/24).

"The approval of Cervarix in Australia is a key milestone towards eradicating the burden of cervical cancer for all women, especially as this is the first cervical cancer vaccine that is explicitly indicated anywhere in the world for women over the age of 26," Jean Stephenne, president of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, said (GSK release, 5/21). According to GSK, older women who already have HPV also could benefit from the vaccine because they are still at risk of contracting different strains. The company has applied to Australia's Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Council to include Cervarix on the national immunization list (Kaiser Daily Women's Health Policy Report, 4/24).


CERVARIX contains the active ingredients HPV-16 L1 protein and HPV-18 L1 protein.

CERVARIX also contains 3-Odesacyl-4'- monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL), aluminum hydroxide, sodium chloride, sodium phosphate-monobasic and water for injections.

Mercury isn't the Only Toxic Item in Vaccines

The aluminum hydroxide used in many vaccines has been linked to symptoms associated with Parkinson's, ALS, and Alzheimer's.

Aluminum hydroxide, which stimulates immune response, has been used for 80 years in vaccines such as those for hepatitis A and B, and the Pentacel cocktail for diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, and meningitis.

Scientists discovered the link after injecting mice with an anthrax vaccine developed for the first Gulf War. After 20 weeks, a fifth of the mice developed a skin allergy, and memory problems increased by 41 times compared to a placebo group. Also, inside the brains of mice, 35 percent of the cells that control movement were destroyed.

U.S. drugmakers are currently testing aluminum hydroxide as an additive in flu shots, even though a recent study of the efficacy of avian flu vaccine found that it only worked roughly 50 percent of the time, and then only at a dose roughly 12 times what is typically given for a seasonal flu vaccine.

Sodium chloride, also known as common salt, table salt, or halite, is a chemical compound with the formula NaCl. Sodium chloride is the salt most responsible for the salinity of the ocean and of the extracellular fluid of many multicellular organisms. As the major ingredient in edible salt, it is commonly used as a condiment and food preservative. In one gram of sodium chloride, there are approximately 0.3933 grams of sodium, and 0.6067 grams of chlorine.

Halite is the mineral form of sodium chloride, NaCl, commonly known as rock salt. Halite forms isometric crystals. The mineral is typically colourless to yellow, but may also be light blue, dark blue, and pink. It commonly occurs with other evaporite deposit minerals such as several of the sulfates, halides and borates.

Sodium phosphate dibasic/sodium phosphate monobasic (By mouth)

Sodium Phosphate, Dibasic (SOE-dee-um FOS-fate, dye-BAY-sik), Sodium Phosphate, Monobasic (SOE-dee-um FOS-fate, mono-BAY-sik)

There may be other brand names for this medicine.

When This Medicine Should Not Be Used:

You should not use this medicine if you have had an allergic reaction to sodium phosphate dibasic or to sodium phosphate monobasic, or if you have a certain kidney disease called acute phosphate nephropathy.

Drugs and Foods to Avoid:

Ask your doctor or pharmacist before using any other medicine, including over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products.

  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are using other medicines that contain sodium phosphate (such as oral saline laxatives or Phospho-Soda®), medicines to lower blood pressure (such as hydrochlorothiazide, lisinopril, quinapril, Lasix®, Accupril®, Cozaar®, or Diovan®), medicines to treat depression (such as amitriptyline, doxepin, nortriptyline, Elavil®, Pamelor®, or Sinequan®), or pain and arthritis medicines (sometimes called "NSAIDs") such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, Advil®, or Aleve®.

  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are also using cisapride (Propulsid®), dofetilide (Tikosyn®), fluoxetine (Prozac®), or levofloxacin (Levaquin®). Tell your doctor if you have recently stopped using alcohol, or if you are taking medicines for sleep called benzodiazepines (such as alprazolam, lorazepam, Ativan®, or Xanax®).

Warnings While Using This Medicine:

  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney disease, heart problems, a history of seizures, electrolyte problems (such as high or low amounts of calcium, phosphate, potassium, or sodium in your blood), or if you are on a low salt diet.

  • Tell your doctor if you have problems with your bowels (such as blocked bowels), stomach problems, trouble swallowing, or a condition called inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Make sure your doctor knows if you have had any type of stomach surgery.

Possible Side Effects While Using This Medicine:

Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects:

  • Allergic reaction: Itching or hives, swelling in your face or hands, swelling or tingling in your mouth or throat, chest tightness, trouble breathing.

  • Decrease in how much or how often you urinate.

  • Dizziness or fainting.

  • Dry mouth, increased thirst, or muscle cramps.

  • Red or black stools.

  • Seizures.

  • Severe stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, or bloating.

  • Uneven heartbeat.

A method of preparing the aqueous composition is disclosed. In one embodiment the ALD and the surfactant are dissolved and uniformly admixed in ethanol. The ethanol is then evaporated leaving a film. Water is added to the film. The ALD and surfactant are suspended in the water by sonication. The suspension is sonicated until clear. Animals administered the claimed composition with an antigen display enhanced humoral and cellular immune responses to that antigen. Methods for using the composition to enhance these responses are also disclosed and claimed.

Things to be careful of:

Be careful driving or operating machinery until you know how CERVARIX affects you.

CERVARIX should not normally interfere with your ability to drive a car or operate machinery. But in some people vaccination can cause dizziness or lightheadedness. Make sure you know how you react to CERVARIX before you drive a car or operate machinery, or do anything that could be dangerous if you are dizzy or lightheaded.

What are the sideeffects?

Check with your doctor as soon as possible if you think you are experiencing any side effects or

allergic reactions due to taking CERVARIX, even if the problem is not listed below.

Like other medicines, CERVARIX can cause some side-effects. If they occur, they are most likely to be minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and need medical attention.

You may feel:

♦ pain or discomfort at the injection site or you may see some:

♦ redness or swelling at the injection site. However, these effects usually clear up within a few days.

Other side effects that occurred during clinical trials with CERVARIX were as follows:

♦ Very common (side effects which may occur in more than 1 per 10 doses of vaccine):

• headache

• aching muscles, muscle tenderness or weakness, not caused by exercise

• fatigue

♦ Common (side effects which may occur in less than 1 per 10 but more than 1 per 100 doses of


• gastrointestinal including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain

• itching, red skin rash, hives

• joint pain

• fever (≥37.5°C — ≤38°C)

♦ Uncommon (side effects which may occur in less than 1 per 100 but more than 1 per 1,000 doses of vaccine):

• upper respiratory tract infection

• dizziness

• other injection site reactions including hard lump, loss of feeling, especially pain, during a medical procedure, itching

• flu-like symptoms, such as high temperature, sore throat, runny nose, cough and chills

♦ Rare (side effects which may occur in less than 1 per 1,000 but more than 1 per 10,000 doses of vaccine):

• spinning sensation

• muscular weakness

• generally feeling unwell

If any of the side effects gets serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist.

This is not a complete list of all possible side-effects. Others may occur in some people and there may be some side-effects not yet known.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice any side effects from your medicine which are not mentioned here.

Do not be alarmed by this list of possible side-effects. You may not experience any of them.

What the heck are these drug companies thinking putting a laxative in a vaccine? There you have it the next wonder vaccine. I wonder how many girls are going to be disabled or die from this one. I hope the FDA does not approve this in the United States.

I have a request of everyone in the world that has had an adverse reaction to either of these vaccines.

Could I feature you in my next article about HPV vaccines? I feel that it is important for people to know as many personal stories that I can fit here. I would also like to put your picture with your story for everyone to see that there is a real person involved here. The world needs to know and understand that these vaccines are dangerous to mankind.

You will be in my prayers and may God bless you.
