HPV Vaccine - Facts Before Deciding

Pamela Levin, R.N., 11/3/10

Is the new HPV Vaccine (against human papilloma virus), effective for preventing cervical cancer, and is it a good idea? Initially, one might conclude that it is if one saw a recent email from the NWPC (National Women's Political Caucus) that promoted it.

After all, no one wants cervical cancer, and the email stated that HPV is “the virus that causes 96 percent of cervical cancer cases.” But according to James Howenstine, M.D., “The FDA has been aware since 2003 that Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) does not cause cervical cancer."

Here are some facts about HPV and this vaccine, Gardasil, summarized from

  1. HPV virus does not cause cervical cancer. 
  2. HPV vaccine increases the risk of developing a precancerous cervical lesion by 44.6% in women previously infected with a HPV viral type found in the vaccine.
  3. HPV viral infections are self limiting and are not a health threat to healthy females. 
  4. Gardasil vaccine is unable to eradicate HPV virus from women who have been exposed to HPV(nearly all sexually active women).” 
  5. Gardasil vaccine contains just four types of HPV out of the more than 100 strains. If you contract one of the 96+ types that aren’t included, you’re out of luck. 
  6. If you’ve already been exposed to one of the four types of virus in the vaccine, it doesn’t work against those either. (Mercola) 
  7. As of January, 2010, 15,829 adverse reactions were reported by the AEFI, including 49 deaths. (http://www.nvic.org/pdf/Tarsell-Report-Unexplained-Gardasil-Deaths.pdf)  
  8. Spain has already taken the vaccine off their market.

    Symptoms reported following vaccination include fatigue, headache, numbness, muscle weakness, joint pain, concentration problems, chest pain, skin disorders, menstrual problems, heart disorders, seizures, dizziness, muscle pain, nausea, miscarriage, paralysis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. (These symptoms increase with the second and third vaccination).

    Dr. Howenstine emphasizes that, “This valuable information about the etiology of HPV viral infections has been suppressed from public knowledge. Allowing untruths about Gardasil to be disseminated in public hearings and planting fear have been used to promote sales of this worthless vaccine.”

A far more effective alternative exists, states Dr. Mercola; it fact it has been scientifically shown to be far more effective than the vaccine: a combination of green tea extract and vitamin C.

Even without green tea and vitamin C, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states,

  “In 90 percent of cases, your body’s immune system clears the HPV infection  naturally within two years.”

If you start to trace down how this information came through the NWPC, you discover an organization called NCWO , which states it is part another organization called the Partnership to End Cervical Cancer. Tracing down the sponsorship of their National Cervical Cancer-Free Campaign, leads through to CLUW (Coalition of Labor Union Women) which has an arm of their organization called CCPW (Cervical Cancer Prevention Works). Turns out all this is funded by Qiagen, one of the companies which makes an FDA-approved test for HP.

Faced with information from non-pharmaceutical industry sources leads to questioning whether, in forwarding this drug company sponsored promotional material on HPV testing and vaccination, the NWPC has become an unwitting shill for the pharmaceutical industry’s stated goal to keep women dependent on their products from the cradle to the grave.

Do we really want to first pay for the HP test, then pay for the HPV vaccine, (as of this writing, $120 US per dose, $360 for the series), then pay with a lot of unwelcome post-vaccination symptoms, and then, for some of us, pay with our lives or the lives of our daughters? And allow our women’s political organization to be co-opted in the process?
