HPV Vaccine: Why Should Provinces Pay For It?
The HPV vaccine protects against none of the 150 other HPV Strains, is highly expensive, and stops working after just 5 years.
Moreover, Merck Pharmaceutical’
The vaccine is also highly expensive, and costs up to $500 for the required three doses.
Thus, the vaccine provides severely limited protection at an unreasonably high cost for both individuals as well as governments that plan to cover the cost of vaccination, and stops working right when people are at the highest risk for becoming infected with HPV.
According to an article published in Discover Magazine entitled Should Boys Be Given the HPV Vaccine? The Science Is Weaker than the Marketing it was noted: “Giving the shots to boys, they say, promotes gender equity. As a bonus, the vaccine may protect against oral and anal cancers in men who have sex with men.”
Jeanne Lenzer, the author of the article, went on to say, “Merck says that in males, the vaccine is 89 percent effective against genital warts and 75 percent effective against anal cancer. On closer inspection, some of the numbers don’t just deflate, they evaporate.
First off, let’s define the problem: The annual number of deaths from anal-rectal cancer among all men in the U.S. is 300. And how did Merck get its happy statistics on efficacy?
Once again, they reported an idealized benefit by excluding from analysis 1,250 study violators out of 4,055 total test subjects. When the real-world analysis was conducted, the numbers plunged – right down to plum nothing.
After evaluating tissue changes in male genitalia that were suggestive of a cancer precursor, Merck reported that vaccine efficacy against such lesions “was not observed.” 
The CBCD questions the wisdom of having Canadian provinces foot the bill to have boys vaccinated against HPV. With the statistical lack of efficacy documented above, the motives for the recommendation by the Canadian Cancer Advocacy Coalition come under suspicion.
However, more concerning than Gardasil’s alleged lack of efficacy is the issue of the presence of HPV DNA fragments in the vaccine.
The CBCD would like to point out that Dr. Hanan Polansky, in his highly acclaimed “Purple” book, explains exactly how certain foreign DNA fragments, at high concentrations, cause major diseases. These diseases include cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and even obesity even when the DNA is broken and not functioning.
In addition, the center encourages biologists, virologists, geneticists and scientists as well as the public to obtain a copy of Dr. Hanan Polansky’s book and read it. The book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.

Is the Canadian Cancer Advocacy Coalition ignoring the statistical evidence? Have they simply not read the studies referenced in this release? Perhaps they should.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD, http://www.cbcd.net)
The CBCD published the “Purple” book entitled “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease” written by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky’s highly acclaimed scientific theory on the relationship between the DNA of latent (chronic) viruses and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky’s book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.
We invite biologists, virologists, and scientists everywhere to download Dr. Polansky’s book here: http://cbcd.net/
