What parent would want to ever hear her previously healthy daughter state – ‘No more’? Why should any previously healthy young woman have to utter those words? And yet, Gardasil and Cervarix injuries and deaths continue to mount while adverse reactions are appearing to outlast the vaccine’s efficacy. Global concerns are mounting, and clinical trials of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat India have being declared unethical.

SANE Vax Inc. believes the Gardasil clinical trials and the vaccine’s marketing campaign have also been unethical and incomplete. Merck needs to be held accountable. If the government will not do it…medical consumers will continue to demand it until Gardasil has been pulled off the market and independent studies on the vaccine’s safety and efficacy are conducted.
Judy Wilyman, MSc , Wollongong University, has issued this demand to the Australian government – and SANE Vax Inc. is demanding the same from any government or government agency promoting Gardasil®
• HPV4 Gardasil was not proven to be safe or effective against cervical cancer prior to its marketing in 2006. It was only assumed to be effective against cervical cancer
• Gardasil has 3x the number of adverse reactions reported than all the other vaccines combined1.
• Each of the 3 injections contains 225 ug of aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate: an adjuvant is known to be linked with autoimmune diseases: the chronic illness
that is increasing in the HPV-vaccinated population2,3.
• Each of the 3 injections contains sodium borate (pesticide) which is linked to infertility, seizures and paralysis. In 2005 the National Library of Medicine (NLM) of the National Institutes of Health declared this as a dangerous poison and stated ‘it is no longer commonly found in medical preparations4, 5. Gardasil was approved for use in 2006.
• Each of the 3 injections also contains Polysorbate 80: an emulsifier linked with anaphylaxis, convulsions, collapse, seizure (twitching) and infertility in animals 4, 5.
• According to VAERS There have been 97 deaths and 22,994 adverse reactions to Gardasil since it was introduced: many have included the events listed above6.
• There is no systematic, long-term surveillance of adverse events. The reporting system is a passive surveillance system which the CDC states “This (VAERS) data cannot be used to infer causal associations between vaccines and adverse events”1. Therefore if you don’t monitor the adverse reactions there is no proof it is not safe. This also means it will not be possible to determine if these women will be infertile in 10-15 years time.
• The placebo in the clinical trials contained more aluminum adjuvant (a chemical linked with autoimmune diseases than the vaccine itself 2. This is not a properly designed scientific study: it is junk science.
Wilyman concludes with the following: Please could you explain why this vaccine has been marketed so aggressively to Australian women when cervical cancer is a very low risk in Australia and the vaccine contains chemicals linked with infertility?
Wilyman also created a poster that summarizes the evidence showing how Gardasil has been dishonestly marketed to women globally. http://www.theoneclickgroup.co.uk/
SANE Vax Inc. poses the same questions to governments and government health agencies worldwide. What justification?
