The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night” – 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines

Dr-Diane-Harper Natural Health

by Sarah Cain –

Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. She is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines.

She made the surprising announcement at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2nd through 4th, 2009.


Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way. When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.

“I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn’t help but question why we need the vaccine at all.” – Joan Robinson

Dr. Harper explained in her presentation that the cervical cancer risk in the U.S. is already extremely low, and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States. In fact, 70% of all H.P.V. infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90% in two years. Harper also mentioned the safety angle.

All trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and above, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds. So far, 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil alone to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (V.A.E.R.S.), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions.

At the time of writing, 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines.

The reported side effects include Guillian Barré Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently — sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation. Parents are usually not made aware of these risks.

Dr. Harper, the vaccine developer, claimed that she was speaking out, so that she might finally be able to sleep at night.

“About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have H.P.V. at some stage of their life. Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.” – Dr. Diane Harper

One must understand how the establishment’s word games are played to truly understand the meaning of the above quote, and one needs to understand its unique version of “science”.

When they report that untreated cases “can” lead to something that “may” lead to cervical cancer, it really means that the relationship is merely a hypothetical conjecture that is profitable if people actually believe it. In other words, there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless.

In fact, there is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer. From the manufacturers own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about about the same as the chance of him being struck by a meteorite.

Why do nine-year-old girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway?

104 Comments on The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night” – 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines

  1. Debbie Hendryx

    My daughter has had the pre-cancerous cells and had to go through painful cervical freezing more than once. The virus did not correct itself, obviously, and now she lives in fear of every pap smear. After watching her I believe the vaccine, even if it helps prevent 8 of 10 cases, is of value. Of course, my granddaughters didn't get the vaccine until they were 10 & 11 as their doctor would not give it to them at age 9. I think everyone needs to do what they feel is best. I did.

  2. I LOST my only child, my daughter to the horrors of cervical cancer. She had had pap smears and the last one showed abnormal cells; the gynecologist just wanted to put her on birth control and have he lose so weight. She was so embarrassed she kept it to herself and her husband. Less that six months later she was diagnosed as "Stage 4". The vaccine came out too late to help my daughter, but you can bet your bippy my 2 granddaughters have been vaccinated.

  3. Kellye Blankenship Copas

    The vaccination had just come out around the time my daughter was 13. I told the doc 'no way!' Not experimenting on my daughter with a brand new vaccine. I had pre-cancerous cells myself of the cervix almost 10 years ago. Pap smear caught it, they were frozen (a painless procedure) and I've been fine ever since according to my yearly paps. This vaccination is dangerous and not needed!

  4. Kellye Blankenship Copas

    That's malpractice. If her pap showed abnormal cells any reputable doctor would have frozen them (killing them) and you're daughter would be here today. So very sorry for your loss.

  5. Rebeka Levin

    No offense, but the HPV vaccine isn't just for cervical cancer…its for HPV, and all the annoyances and increased risks it brings (e.g. more complicated pregnancies). And 'it usually kills itself' is very misleading. Its a virus, so it will always be in your blood stream and always have the potential to resurface. Also, always have the potential to infect others with the illness (thus the excessively high infection rate of HPV, at almost 1 in 2 under 26 suspected of having it!).

  6. She said "most" not all will cure itself and I really think that freezing of the cervix, which I have had done and is mildly uncomfortable, is preferable to possible death.

  7. seriously u compare freezing to these severe side effects wowwwww freezing is not that bad and maybe u need to look into your daughters immune system thats why her body isnt handling itself! How is her diet! you are what you eat . get her off of sugars processed foods put her on plant life things would change

  8. Rebeka Levin

    Kellye Blankenship Copas Actually that's inaccurate, most doctors (because HPV is so common) won't opt for that out the bat. They'll followup with a coloscopy to make sure its in one of three level categories,the first being 'eh, its probably just a bunch of cells' with the third being 'definitely malignant'. If it's in either of the first two categories they will not do anything and instead recommend another pap smear in 6months

  9. Rebeka Levin Depending on the type of virus it will die off on it's own, provided the host is a healthy person. As a healthy human body is not a healthy environment for most viruses. The key word in your statement is "suspected" In other words. We'll stretch this remote possibility to make what we want sound valid…. BTW the Center for Disease Creation lies. Watch "Under My Skin," if you want a good example of how they distort information, deny responsibility for their mistakes, and cause more problems than they will ever solve.

  10. Tine Chris Mathisen

    Rebeka Levin In Norway, it leads to removing the abnormal cells, even if it's just a small change in the cells. I had it done. I would never ever agree to try this vaccine.

  11. Elaine Carter Cray

    Rebeka Levin , well actually most Doctors (decent ones anyway) Will recommend cryotherapy or laser therapy to remove the cells right off. It is a simple safe procedure.

  12. Carley Ewing-Gold

    Rebeka Levin also there are essential oils that are antiviral that kill viruses so I do not see the need for a vaccination. It's all about the money.

  13. Elaine Carter Cray

    Debbie Hendryx, The cervical freezing is not painful, slightly uncomfortable yes but not painful. I guess you need to out weigh the slight risk of the treatment for abnormal cells not working and the risk of death or serious side effects from the vaccine.

  14. Cherokee Nicole Anderson-Lunde

    44 died and 15,000 plus have had severe adverse reactions and those cases are only the ones that parents jumped over hurdles to report. Do your research!

  15. Cherokee Nicole Anderson-Lunde

    My OBGYN said he thought the "research" was shotty and he didn't trust it nor would he recommend it. My girls will not be getting this vaccine that's for damn sure. So glad I never got this vaccine, my younger sisters did and one of them is having SEVERE issues and the other may be experiencing the same thing! :-(

  16. Tara Parsons

    I find it interesting that the article failed to even mention how many doses have been given. That leads me to believe it is NOT objective, any more than the CDC.

  17. Cherokee Nicole Anderson-Lunde

    The CDC lies all the time to push their own agenda. It's all about making money and lining pockets. Our health and safety isn't at all of concern to them. Pretty sad when ever DOCTORS will say the CDC is full of sh**.

    Jack Fisher I am so glad you mentioned "Under My Skin" great thing to watch to educate yourself on the truth behind on the CDC!

  18. I ended up with a total hysterectomy, and I'd do it again. My daughter is 13 and will not get the vaccine…..I will not let her be a guinea pig. The vaccine is too new! Remember back in the 50's when they gave that DES shot to all pregnant woman??? Babies were born with HUGE deformity's, missing limbs and death!!

  19. Nancy K Neenan

    Rebeka Levin Had precancerous 'abnormal cells in the 3rd month of my 2nd pregnancy…They wanted to do a full Hysterectomy…Said if it was going to be my last child I was going to wait… Started on minerals for rest of preg, she was healthy,cells were too…Never came back over the pasty 32 yrs and 2 additional pregnancies

  20. Wow, folks are really defensive here. I'm with Rebeka on this one. I haven't had this vaccine and I was one of those people who had pre-cancerous cells that died off (or were all biopsied off, or a combo), but it was a major scare that lasted six months. It came back 2 yrs later and I had to have a LEEP (part of my cervix removed). That said, my sister had a rare but extremely aggressive strain of HPV that nearly took her fertility and uterus. HPV is no joke. This is not your parents' STD. I understand why people are skeptical about the vaccine, but this article is clearly super opinionated and is seriously downplaying the dangers and risks of HPV. Above all, the most important thing in my opinion is for women to have regular annual exams, not miss them, and have those exams covered by insurance or accessible and affordable to the uninsured.

  21. Janet Zipf I find your comments kind of offensive. You're blaming this woman's daughter's situation you know nothing about (except that she's had more than one scare with HPV) on a poor diet or malfunctioning immune system. I presume you don't know much about HPV. I had multiple scares with a cancer-causing strain and I am super healthy, eat 90% organic, cook my own local vegetables, barely eat meat, and I am a fitness instructor. That doesn't change the fact that women are at risk of some really scary viral strains. We all experience stress and that can make us vulnerable, too, as can a number of other factors. If someone wants to vaccinate because of their personal experiences I don't believe they should be ridiculed as dupes or hounded for their diet (based on assumptions). It's a personal decision.

  22. Len Pennington

    they did NOT do "several HUNDRED MILLION" doses of test vaccines!! Are you kidding me? there's only 300 million men, women, and children in the US…dumbass

  23. Lindsay Robusto

    Before believing articles from any news source that claims to have sources that are experts in the field, I always try to actually look at the data for myself (if I can understand it at least, but I have an advantage of having a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and I'm in the process of getting my doctorate in pharmacy).

    The article said "there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent…" That is absolutely false. Here's some info:
    "Gardasil [consists] of… viruslike particles from HPV 6, 11, 16, and 18."
    "HPV infection has been clearly linked to all or nearly all squamous intraepithelial lesions and cancers of the cervix and anus. HPV is also linked to a subset of penile, vulvar, and vaginal cancers. Of the 14 most common oncogenic HPV types associated with these cancers, HPV 16 is the most common and associated with the highest risk of progression to cancer".
    "HPV is present in 99.7% of all cervical cancers. HPV-16, 18, 31, and 45 are high-risk & HPV-6 and 11 are low-risk HPV types for cervical carcinoma, the SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN WOMEN." –It is definitely not a "rare" cancer!
    "Approx. 90% [of anogenital warts] are caused by HPV-6 and HPV-11".
    "Infection of the female genital tract by HPV types 16, 18, 31, and 45 (and rarely by other types of HPV) is associated with intraepithelial cervical neoplasia and cancer."
    These quotes are from my Medical Microbiology textbook and UpToDate, a database with articles that undergo an extensive peer-review process, are updated frequently, and are written by doctors and experts in the field, with cited references that are also peer-reviewed by other experts.

    "70% of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90% in two years." So this is including ALL types of HPV, which is over 40 types. Genital warts/cervical cancer are most often caused by a possible 4 types of HPV. The other types of HPV cause skin warts such as plantar warts or the warts that are seen on people's hands. There are even some HPV infections titled "Benign tumors of the head/neck." So yes, I'm not surprised that those HPV infections would resolve themselves without treatment, but the article did not distinguish how many HPV infections caused by any of the 6 types that cause anogenital warts will resolve themselves without treatment. In fact, even with treatment, disease recurrence of vulvar/vaginal warts is common and occurs in 20-30% of patients (another UpToDate article). It doesn't make sense to vaccinate against those strains because they are so benign and do resolve themselves without treatment. The strains that DON'T resolve themselves are the ones that cause cervical cancer, and those also happen to be the ones included in the Gardasil vaccine.

    Indeed, even reading the raw data from the VAERS reports, many of the reported deaths were due to causes unrelated to the Gardisil vaccination, including prescription drug abuse, juvenile ALS (a genetic disease aka Lou Gehrig's diseases), the flu virus, and pulmonary embolisms (likely due to concurrant use of oral contraceptives that increase your risk for blood clots). The data on Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is even sketchy, showing that there are actually less GBS cases reported after Gardasil vaccination than in any other vaccination. Even though 42 cases of GBS reported over a 2 year period, only 12 of them were confirmed, and of these, only 8 were within the time limit of biological plausibility (i.e. could be possibly related to administration of the vaccine). 8 cases out of more than 23 million doses given during those 2 years.

    The reality is medical professionals are the ones who do most of the VAERS reporting. They are required to, by law, report any adverse reaction seen in patients receiving a specific treatment, even if they treatment didn't cause the side effect. There is actually a higher chance you will be struck by lightning (living in the US, it's 1 in ~750,000) than report a serious adverse reaction such as death or GBS. The fact is there is such a higher chance that you will prevent HPV infection by getting the vaccine than you will have a serious adverse reaction, or get struck by lightning.

    So there are some FACTS to go along with this completely unsubstantiated article.

    So very glad that we didn't go that route with my 13 yr old. I just had a bad feeling about the whole thing. My son isn't sexually active so I couldn't see the use in that vaccine. Relief and vindication!

  25. you say a healthy body does that also hold true in cases of genital herpes? I am wondering because my best friend said her husband has it but she has never seen any thing on herself.

  26. Lindsay Robusto

    Cherokee Nicole Anderson-Lunde , 15,000 plus had adverse reactions, not SEVERE adverse reactions. Most adverse reactions reported minor injection site reactions. In the adverse reactions reported from 2006-2008, only 6.2% were classified as "serious adverse events" and the majority of those events did not have sufficient history/information to directly link it to Gardasil. How bout YOU do your research and/or actually read the article? Also, Len is kind of right, there wasn't several hundred million doses, there have been about 50 million doses distributed to date. And the article was not talking about test vaccines, it is talking about overall vaccines. VAERS is used to report adverse reactions AFTER clinical trials, AFTER the drug has come to market.

  27. Justin Nnoix


    "So I contacted Professor Harper. For avoidance of doubt, so that there can be no question of me misrepresenting her views, unlike the Express, I will explain Professor Harper’s position on this issue in her own words. They are unambiguous.
    “I did not say that Cervarix was as deadly as cervical cancer. I did not say that Cervarix could be riskier or more deadly than cervical cancer. I did not say that Cervarix was controversial, I stated that Cervarix is not a ‘controversial drug’. I did not ‘hit out’ – I was contacted by the press for facts. And this was not an exclusive interview.”.
    Professor Harper did not “develop Cervarix”, as the Sunday Express said, but she did work on some important trials of Gardasil, and also Cervarix. “Gardasil is not a ‘sister vaccine’ as the Express said, it is a different compound. I do not know of the side effects of Cervarix as it is not available in the US.” Furthermore she did not say that Cervarix was being over marketed. “I did say that Merck was egregiously overmarketing Gardasil in the US- but Gardasil and Cervarix are not the same vaccines.”".

  28. Kathie AmericanCitizen

    If you want to hear something really scary, investigate The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation which is supplying vaccines to 3rd world countries to limit the population.

  29. Sarah PJ

    Tine Chris Mathisen I had it a few yrs ago. I'm miraculously still alive and well, check your sources of information are credible before knocking a life saving vaccine.

  30. Cervical cancer is rare, but to say this venereal disease (hpv) is rare is simply untrue. It's the most common STD in the country. This article contradicts itself on that point because it acknowledges that 8 in 10 women who have been sexually active will get HPV- 80% of women- in their lifetime, then it turns around & calls it an extremely rare venereal disease. How is 80% rare? The National Cancer Institute says that more than half of sexually active people (in the U.S., I think) will have one or more types of HPV during their lives, & at any given time, 42.5% of women have it. Mayoclinic supports this woman's numbers by saying that 80% of women have had the virus by age 50. A much smaller, but still significant number- 7%- of people have oral HPV at any given time.

    As far as it being symptomless, I think it usually is. However, some forms can cause cervical, vaginal, vulvar, head, penile, anal & oropharyngeal (throat, tongue, tonsil) cancer & are possibly connected to some lung cancer cases, while other forms cause genital warts & rarely, respiratory papillomatosis (throat warts) which can sometimes block the airways. The HPV that causes cancer is usually destroyed by the immune system, & so will most likely be symptomless. That should be taken into account when deciding if you want the vaccine. However, it should also be taken into account that the vast majority (almost all) of cervical cancer is caused by HPV, & you will almost certainly be exposed to HPV. Yet, I believe the vaccine only covers the types of HPV that cause 70% of cervical cancer cases. Nearly 30% more of them are caused by other forms of HPV not covered by the vaccine. Still, it can reduce your risk by 70%. 90% of HPV clears on its own, but that leaves 10% & that's significant. 5% of cancers worldwide are caused by HPV, & when you consider how many people are in the world, that's not insignificant.

    Cervical cancer used to be one of the most common cancer death causes for American women until pap smears became more common & therefore the cells were caught while mutating & removed before they turned into cancer. So, the cases in which women had to have them burned, froze, or cut off, or had to have biopsies, are not "symptom free," nor is cancer, nor are genital warts. Today, cervical cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide. It's true that it's rare in the U.S., but in some parts of the world, risks are different. I read in a 2012 published study that 500,000 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed each year, while 280,000 women die each year worldwide from cervical cancer. Depending on where you live, or certain things about you or your habits, you might be at higher risk for the HPV turning into cancer. Because we don't screen people for HPV until they get cervical mutations, & we don't screen men at all, you could prob. swap it back & forth for awhile, or repeatedly get it which I would think would increase likelihood of cancer.

    I find it disturbing that they are giving this to children much younger than it has been tested on. They need to make sure it is safe for them. I didn't get it because it was fairly new & I don't trust new vaccines. Now, I'm older than the age group that it's been tested on, so it isn't recommended for me. I'm not even sure I would be allowed to get it. However, given the high incidence of cancer in my family, the fact that my state, my region of the U.S., & my section of my state has more cervical cancer, the fact that HPV is so prevalent in the country in general, & the fact that I'd rather not have to have my cervix cut, burned, or frozen, I kind of wish I'd gotten the shots. Who knows? Maybe I would have died. Then again, maybe I'll die one day from cervical cancer. The odds of both are small, but real. IF I had lived with no side effects, however, I'd have greater peace of mind. I know a lot of ladies around here have had HPV & ended up getting mutations requiring biopsies or requiring them to have their cervix burnt. My observations locally have led me to believe that this is not only something that can happen to me, but something that probably will. That's scary. A study published earlier this year says that incidences of HPV appear to have declined by 56% among female teens between 14 & 19. Could the study be biased? Sure. But maybe it's accurate.

  31. I don't blame you for not giving it to her considering it was new. That's the same reason I avoided it. I'm not anti-vaccine, nor am I completely pro-vaccine. I think people need to weigh the odds & risks. However, the procedure you got is NOT painless for everyone. I've known women who had their cells removed & did not think it was painless. I know one woman who was biopsied & the Dr. didn't even numb her beforehand. Also, mutations progress faster in some people than others. I heard one lady saying that the doctors told her that her mutations progressed at an alarming rate. She had regular paps & thankfully caught them in time. Some women have a hard time with pap smears & avoid them, however, which could cause them not to find out that they have cervical mutations in time. Also, HPV can cause other cancers- not just cervical cancer. It can cause vaginal, vulvar, penile, head, throat, tongue, tonsil, & anal cancer, & possibly some lung cancers. Although those cancers are rare, a big percentage of them (aside from lung, & not sure about head) are caused by HPV, & they might be less likely to be detected since people don't regularly screen for them. They might also be less easy to remove.

  32. Thank you for posting verifiable information based on observation and research. You won't find much support for that among people who WANT vaccines to be the devil(people reach really far). People can dismiss you by saying "Big Pharma" and other buzzwords they don't understand, then link you to a blog that calls you an idiot if you don't blinding accept what they say, and usually try to sell you supplements… Then they don't get the irony.

    Sorry to vent on your comment, but I mostly wanted to make the point that I appreciate real data(regardless of whose opinion it might support) because, looking at comments, I don't think you'll get much of that here.

  33. Janet Zipf Please stop blindly accusing people who you don't know. The medical advice you give is also useless. I've had an autoimmune condition my whole life, and get advice from people like you who don't get it, and think no one ever got sick before processed sugar. I've done the diet thing, for years. I've cut out wheat, dairy, mean and all animal products in various combinations. Turns out I wasn't imagining, I still have the condition. It also turns out that the bioavailable protein from an egg is the one food that makes a difference, for the better, if I'm unable to walk for any amount of time. Being vegan was the absolute worst for me…I've always eaten mostly vegetables, taking it to the extreme didn't help. Everyone is different, no blanket statement (processed sugar and meatz!) covers everyone. Paying attention to what someone shovels in their face is common sense, but people genuinely get sick no matter what they eat.

  34. Considering a 56% decline in something so horrible(it is a verifiable number, articles citing it may indeed have a bias), thousands of deaths prevented should be a bigger number than 44 related to vaccinations. I think the world is ready for another round of bubonic plague if people are so anti-med and anti-science. The information you cite should get people to think. Looking at comments here, I feel that may not be the case, and part of me weeps.

  35. Jewel Levy Exactly! They've only helped to "all but" eradicate certain diseases, and only in countries where they vaccinate.
    "Medical science has done nothing for peoples' health!" – Nobody over 30 in 1900. They were just lucky to be among the elite to survive that long.

  36. Janet Zipf Yeah! Don't look at verified data. Look at unreferenced articles and blogs that do nothing but tell certain people they're right. They don't want thinking beyond that point.

  37. Kalindi Dasi Morgan

    If you read the comments some one posts a conversation with Dr. Harper where she states her comments were misconstrued. Sounds like the anti-immunity circus is big business.

  38. The CDC posted on their site about 2-3 weeks ago info about the polio vaccine(which have people polio) they said it contained the SV49 monkey virus which is causing cancer… And that's just the tip of the iceberg… Vaccines are not effective they do not help the body whatsoever, they damage the immune system and calls long-term effects that may not show its ugly face for years or maybe instant… Depending on your body.

  39. Rob Wojtylo

    Would you want to be the parent of or one of those 44 that died or of the 15,000 that have had severe reactions???

  40. THANK GOD, she grew a conscience and spoke out. Now they are wanting to give newborns the HPV vaccines and it will be more carnage for our babies like the Heb B vaccines are!

  41. Lindsay Robusto

    Jewel Levy, What Penny Lynn Ambler said is actually very true. There are 0 new cases of Polio now because of the vaccine, where it was a huge and widespread problem only a few decades ago. That's only 1 example of many. Because of their vaccines, there are close to no Measles, Mumps, or Rubella cases now as well, once deadly diseases. The cases you do see are often those who aren't vaccinated. Same for diphtheria, Hepatitis A & B, Pertussis, and SMALLPOX. How about you check your facts before accusing others of not doing so?

  42. Lindsay Robusto

    Rob Wojtylo There were NOT 15,000 SEVERE reactions. There were 15,000 reported adverse reactions. Not all adverse reactions are severe! And most are mild like injection site reaction (yea, you're getting a shot, your body will react to that, that's the point of a vaccine). Only about 6% were "severe" reactions, and most were unsubstantiated! Also, there were a total of 4,410 girls aged 9-18 that died in the year 2007 ALONE. 44 girls have died after getting the vaccine, and the grand majority of those deaths cannot be tied to the Gardasil vaccine! Don't assume what you don't understand

  43. Sherri Burchett-Lemaster

    I feel VERY misled after reading this! My daughter (on the advice of our physician) received the Gardasil vaccine when she was 13. Had I known this, I would have NEVER done it!

  44. Lindsey Hawley Rooks

    While I agree this is an unnecessary vaccine, and is a prime example of the corruption within our pharmaceutical companies and the FDA. We should not demonize all vaccinations because of this. It comes down to pro vs con, benefit vs risk. In this case, their is no benefit, therefore it is not worth the risk. In some situations this is not the case. Vaccines have eradicate many horrible diseases around the world. People need to take the time to educate themselves instead of following so blindly.

  45. Lindsay Robusto

    Benjamin Magno Thank you, and yea I know I'm fighting a losing battle. People will believe what they want to believe, and the fact that they would be remotely interested in reading this article or the comments, and especially the novel I've written above tells me that a) they've already decided that vaccines are bad and are looking for validation (see comment below me), or b) are just as frustrated with biased articles that strategically leave out all the evidence that proves their opinion incorrect. But in any case, I was interested in the data anyway, and felt it would be enlightening to some of these readers to see what I found.

    PS I absolutely agree with your rant and appreciate you share my feelings about it!

  46. G RA NT

    It was not only administered in USA and not only on woman it was administered to male and females world wide in 2011. so what do you say to that ?.


  47. Emma Portwin

    Rebeka Levin, here in Spain you would have abnormal Cells removed straight away same as Norway. I have had this done myself.

  48. Cheryl McGrady

    Rebeka Levin I am in canada and I had abnormal cells, I was given a biopsy and also colposcopy.

  49. @Lindsay Robusto – People don't report normal injection site reactions, they report reactions that are serious enough to be checked out again at the hospital, which means they are certainly more serious regardless. It is a hurdle to get reactions posted to VAERS, so I would consider any reaction that was reported to VAERS to be pretty serious. Also if the vaccine only covers 4 strains out of 40 for the virus, that's not a very good cure rate for the adverse effects that have been reported. My daughter will not be getting this vaccine.

  50. Actually your body kills off viruses all the time. They do not remain always in your blood stream. I think you are confusing it with herpes that lives in the nerve endings.

  51. They are also trying to push the gaurdisil vaxx on male boys. I ended up in an argument with someone trying to convince my my nine yr old son needed this vax NOW! Such bull to make a profitcat the risk of others

    I vaccinated both my daughters with the GUARDACIL shot and 2 months after last shot my one daughter had to have her appendix out.. ok fine, then 4 months after last shot my 13 yr old had to have her gallbladder removed.. (NOT NORMAL) doctor said it was ganggreen on inside wall.. I am 100% sure it was the vaccine and I tell everyone nOT to do it!

    My son had a set of shots as a toddler then pooped white for weeks, diarrhea for months, and anger/focus issues ever since. My youngest daughter is completely unvaccinated.

    kayla had just the one shot & never went back for the second, lynn didn't like the reports she was hearing.

  55. Dena Cottrell

    Carol Cottrell good for her!! I was pushed into by my so called doctor at the time.. NEVER again!!

    Consider the source, just because its printed and can be accessed on the Internet it does NOT make it valid, reliable or anywhere near true.

    I death is too many, never mind 44…they can't be replaced. Cancer rates have gone up very quickly in the last century….why is it? GMO's, pesticides, heavy metals. toxic gases, from materials in the home….etc etc is my best guess. We can keep looking to the scientists for cures but prevention is better in the form of diet. Children are drinking energy drinks, eating sweets all with artificial chemical in them and we wonder why people are getting sicker younger.

  58. I had heard recently of two cases of men with oral cancer that was directly linked to having oral sex with woman who had HPV. My son's doctor advised HE get the vaccine. I see a lot of comments here about females. What about males? anyone?

    Jewel Levy Great response, Jewel "not true. Check the REAL facts." LMAO. How about YOU provide them since Penny's statement has been scientifically proven at least a thousand times? Ever hear of smallpox? Polio? Mumps? Rubella? You are a lemming.

  60. "Why do nine-year-old girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway?"

    Not that I think that they should be vaccinated, but extremely rare? 8/10 sexually active women get it. I wouldn't call that extremely rare, nor would I say the virus is symptom-less.

    You started so strong only to finish so poorly.

  61. If your American, check the CDC website for details on Polio. Chances are you do know a lot of people that have had polio, 75% of pop contracted polio in 40s – 50s before vac, over 99% of those had mild symptoms, 15% of the 1 remaining % died. This is 0.001% of the American pop died from polio. Check out measles too. not giving my opinion just the facts.

    They recommended in 2011 that young males (11-12 years) get it because they, too, can be infected by any of the 4 strains of the virus that the vaccine immunizes against.

    "Interest in HPV vaccine efficacy and safety in young males has not only included prevention of HPV-related diseases (genital warts, anal cancer, and penile cancer), but also possible decreased transmission of HPV infection to female sex partners and potential for prevention of oral cancers associated with HPV 16 and 18 "

    There are clinical trials out there that have proven the safety and efficacy of using Gardasil in young males that have not been exposed to HPV previously. This is why they recommend immunization at such a young age, because the assumption is a 9 year old boy has probably not become sexually active yet, and has a very high chance of never having been exposed to the virus. This is also the case in young girls.

    They still recommend immunizing teenagers and young adults into their early 20s anyway, just in case there's the chance they haven't been exposed to the virus yet

    It's funny that the few commenters here with a medical background tend to have the same opinion. Just pointing that out

  64. Lindsay Robusto You have effectively supported everything you've said, and yet, almost everyone chooses to ignore the facts and believe sensationalized fiction. I believe in vaccines. Because of vaccines, I never got polio, I never got smallpox, and because I was vaccinated earlier this year, I'm hoping to never get shingles.
