Vaccination rates among adolescent girls for the cancer-causing human papillomavirus (HPV) is low, so Merck and the CDC is putting pressure education on physicians and increased advertizing so more parental education. They are encouraging physicians to push the vaccinations on every visit. medscape.com
So is it possible that people are becoming more educated on healthier ways to improve their health? This decrease is the best news to date. Seems people are not buying the fear tactics that this vaccine is necessary for young girls and boys.
Gardasil is the commercial HPV vaccine; licensed for use in June 2006, by the FDA to Merck and Company. The vaccine “targets four strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) — HPV-6, 11, 16, and 18. HPV-16 and HPV-18 account for about 70% of all cervical cancers. HPV-6 and -11 cause about 90% of genital warts. HPV is also linked to anal cancer.”
It is possible for males to get HPV infections and can pass the virus to their sex partners. HPV causes genital warts and is associated with rare cases of cancer of the penis. Particularly in gay men, HPV is linked to anal cancers. Merck is currently testing Gardasil in men, including gay men. webmd.com
The HPV vaccine contains:
- proteins of HPV Types 6, 11, 16, and 18
- amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate (adjuvant) it causes neuron death in mice healthsentinel.com
- yeast protein -possible allergen for those who have yeast sensitivities or those who have an overgrowth of yeast in their body
- sodium chloride salt
- L-histidine – Most lists of amino acids classify L–histidine as an essential amino acid; however, it has never been clear if L–histidine is an essential amino acid for adults.
- polysorbate 80 solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions” ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
- sodium borate – ” sodium borate, and sodium perborate are estimated to have a fatal dose from 0.1 to 0.5g/kg. These substances are toxic to all cells, and have a slow excretion rate through the kidneys. Kidney toxicity is the greatest, with liver fatty degeneration, cerebral edema, and gastroenteritis.” cqconcepts.com
Merck does not list all ingredients in this toxic cocktail. There is no guarantee that this vaccine is even needed. Vaccines add toxic chemicals to the body that is the reason the body launches the immune response. It is trying to get rid of these foreign substances.
