Just when you think it can’t get any worse…it does.
Rhode Island has announced that the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, has been added as a requirement to attend the 7th grade. In an article published in the Washington Times, Tricia Washburn, chief of the Office of Immunization for the Rhode Island Department of Health, said:
“The bottom line is that HPV is the most sexually transmitted disease in the U.S.” she said. “We are interested in protecting the public health. We feel it shouldn’t be treated any differently than any of the other vaccines recommended by the CDC.”
Seventh graders are 12-13 years of age. What is behind this mandate? Does Rhode Island have a problem with promiscuous teens, prompting this CDC representative to be concerned about protecting the public from human papilloma virus disease?
By checking teen pregnancy rates, it sure doesn’t seem that way. In 2011, Rhode Island was ranked 43 out of 51 states (50 states + the District of Columbia) in births rates in girls aged 15 to 19, and ranked 39 out of 51 in girls 15 to 19 years of age. (1 is highest; 51st is lowest ranking.) Further, the birth rate in girls 15 to 19 decreased 52% between 1991 and 2011. Either girls in RI are modest and refraining from sex, or they are being smart and having protected sex. In either case, it is doubtful that sexually transmitted disease among 7th graders is a problem.
HPV does not spread through the air like measles or the flu. HPV infections occur mainly with sexual intercourse. This viral infection is extremely common over a life time; in fact, more than 90% of sexually active women will contract HPV at some time during their life. But here’s the kicker: studies have confirmed that most women who contract HPV do NOT develop cervical cancer, and almost all HPV infections resolve over 1- to 2-years on their own. Girls with previous exposure or previous infection with HPV strains 16 or 18 will receive no benefit from the vaccine. There are no plans to test any girls – or boys – for positivity before giving them the vaccine.
Will a Gardasil vaccine protect a 12-year old girl from cancer? No, it will not. There are more than 200 strains of HPV, and 15 to 20 strains have been associated with cancer. Gardasil has only two of those strains, serotype 16 and 18, giving a false sense of security to mothers. Current advertising, and now a mandate, tricks girls into believing they are protected and that they do not need an embarrassing, often uncomfortable, pap test, an exam which can identify – and prevent – more than 90% of cervical cancers.
Three of the ingredients in Gardasil are horrific, with the potential for long term, serious health consequences: Aluminum, polysorbate 80, and sodium borate (borax). Let’s briefly look at the problems associated with each:
- Polysorbate 80
- Polysorbate 80, commercially known as Tween 80, can cause potentially fatal anaphylaxis-like reactions, characterized by a sharp drop in blood pressure, hives, and breathing difficulties.
- Polysorbate 80 is used to carry drugs and particles into the brain.
- Polysorbate 80 has been shown to cause infertility in female mice. Rats injected with polysorbate 80 at days 4-7 after birth have an accelerated the maturation of the vagina, squamous cell metaplasia of the epithelial lining of the uterus, indicative of chronic estrogen stimulation. Ovaries were without corpora lutea, and had degenerative follicles. (Note: The corpus luteum produces progesterone, and without sufficient progesterone, the uterine lining will shed and be unable to sustain a pregnancy.)
- Sodium borate
- Borax is an acidic salt also known as sodium borate. When it enters the body, it becomes boric acid, an ingredient commonly found in rat poison, pesticides, flame retardants, and laundry detergent.
- When given orally, sodium borate and boric acid interfere with sperm production, damage the testes and interfere with male fertility when given to animals at high doses. Depending upon the dose, boric acid produces developmental defects, including reduced body weight, malformations and death, in the offspring of pregnant animals. Therefore, sodium borate has been banned as a food preservative in the United States and several other countries .According to the MSDS sheet for borax, the full effects of injecting boric acid is unknown, but if it this harmful to ingest it, how much more harmful is it to inject it?.
Researchers have known since at least 1979 that it takes only 6-8ppm of boron to effect the testicles, resulting in complete germinal cell aplasia. In the testicle, the germinal layer manufactures sperm and the Leydig cells produce testosterone. Little boys, injected with Gardasil, can develop normally, with normal testosterone levels, but be infertile when they reach the age of parenthood.
Gardasil has 35 mcg of borax (35 ppm) per dose. (1 mcg ~ 1 ppm). Borax contains about 11% boron by weight.
In 2008, the FDA reported that 73.3% of girls in Gardasil clinical trials developed new illnesses, which ranged from disorders of the gastrointestinal and neurological systems to autoimmune disease and skin outbreaks.
Faced with ALL of that, does it even work, meaning, does giving a 12-year old a shot of Gardasil really lower the incidence of cervical cancer at 40 years of age, when cervical cancer is most prevalent? Not only highly doubtful – truth is, absolutely not. Here’s what a Merck whistle blower has to say about it:
In 2014, Dr. Bernard Dalberge, a former Merck industry physician said, “I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine…has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune. In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it.”
Bottom line: Not only is this vaccine completely unnecessary, to mandate it as a school requirement…? The officials who added this mandate – and the physicians who write the order to administer the shot – should be charged with criminal intent. Parents: stand up and fight back. Rhode Island still has a religious exemption intact. Do not allow your children to be violated with this vaccination.
