Gardasil victims speak out in videos released by famed doc
ILLINOIS, November 29, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A well-known doctor who has repeatedly warned about the dangers of vaccines and who is particularly concerned about the Gardasil human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, has released two video testimonies by young women who were severely harmed after having been injected with Gardasil.
Dr. Joseph Mercola notes that the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database indicates that Gardasil has been linked to 49 sudden deaths, 213 permanent disabilities, 137 reports of cervical dysplasia, 41 reports of cervical cancer, and thousands of adverse events reports, ranging from headaches and nausea, to outbreaks of genital warts, anaphylactic shock, grand mal convulsion, foaming at the mouth, coma and paralysis.
Dr. Mercola also says it is concerning that HPV vaccines protect against only two of the more common strains of HPV associated with cancer, HPV-16 and HPV-18, even though there are more than 100 different types of HPV, at least 15 of which cause cancer.
Charlotte Haug, writing in the September issue of New Scientist noted, “Vaccinated women show an increased number of precancerous lesions caused by strains of HPV other than HPV-16 and HPV-18 … what effect will the vaccine have on the other cancer-causing strains of HPV? Nature never leaves a void, so if HPV-16 and HPV-18 are suppressed by an effective vaccine, other strains of the virus will take their place. The question is, will these strains cause cervical cancer? Results from clinical trials are not encouraging.”
In the first of the video testimonies a young lady named Brittney reveals that she was frightened into receiving the Gardasil shot just after she turned 21. Following the second of the two recommended doses she lost the use of her legs. She then provides a shocking list of medical problems that resulted from receiving the injections.
In the second video, Ashley recounts the journey from being a healthy active teenager to a life of hospital visits, 911 calls, severe pain, nausea, difficulty breathing and not being able to walk from numbness in her legs.
“If I had never gotten this shot I would be a normal teenager. I wish I could go back,” Ashley says in the video.
“Deadly blood clots, acute respiratory failure, cardiac arrest and ‘sudden death due to unknown causes’ have all occurred in girls shortly after they’ve received the Gardasil vaccine,” Dr. Mercola explains. “These are atrocious risks to potentially prevent cervical cancer one day down the road. Because let’s not forget that the HPV vaccine has not yet been proven to actually prevent any kind of cancer.”
“The bottom line is that Gardasil is largely ineffective, potentially very dangerous, and a major waste of money,” Dr. Mercola concludes.
