Toyota 52 Deaths, Gardasil 49. Toyota Recalled.

Cervical cancer accounts for less than 1 percent of all cancer deaths, so it was somewhat surprising when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration fast-tracked approval of Gardasil, a Merck vaccine targeting the human papilloma virus that causes the disease, in 2006.

As of Jan. 31, 2010, 49 unexplained deaths following Gardasil injections have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (http://vaers.hhs.gov/index). By contrast, 52 deaths are attributed to unintended acceleration in Toyotas, which triggered a $2 billion recall.

No recall for Gardasil, which is required for sixth-grade girls in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and many other states. Parents can opt out, but few know the true risks.

That was the certainly the case for Mary Davison of Frederick, Md., whose three daughters had the second of a three-shot vaccination regimen in January 2008. Her two younger girls had no reactions, but 20-year-old Mary Katherine felt sick and dizzy.

A subsequent magnetic resonance imaging scan showed that the Hood College student had a major stroke, and she spent almost two months in rehab before she could walk again. However, it wasn't until the family's primary care physician refused to schedule Mary Katherine's third injection that her mom "finally put two and two together," she told the Washington Examiner.

A month later, Lisa Ericzon of Alexandria Bay, N.Y., found her 17-year-old daughter Jessica dead on the bathroom floor just 40 hours after her third Gardasil injection. The coroner listed the cause as "undetermined natural causes."

Jessica had pain and dizziness following her second Gardasil shot. "At the time, we didn't think about any connection with the vaccination," Ericzon told me. "But later, when I got on the Internet, I found all of the side effects Jessica complained about and three other women told me their daughters had also died within days of being vaccinated."

One of those women was Emily Tarsell, of Sparks, Md., whose 21-year-old daughter Christina died 18 days after receiving her final Gardasil injection and experiencing fatigue, dizziness, and a pounding heartbeat. "We had no clue that these were all symptoms of something," her mother said. Neither an autopsy or toxicology screen could determine the cause of death.

An October 2008 CDC report said 28 million girls and women who received Gardasil had no more adverse medical outcomes than those who hadn't gotten the shots. But in February 2009, the National Vaccine Information Center (nvic.org) used CDC's own data to contradict the government's findings: Gardasil was associated "with at least four times as many death and cardiac arrest reports" as a similar vaccine, and "seemed to be associated with an unusually high number of reports of atypical collapse. ..."

The August 2009 Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 89 percent of adverse Gardasil reactions submitted to VAERS had "insufficient identifying information to permit clinical follow-up or review."

Merck denies any of the deaths are related to its vaccine, and the parents involved can't prove they were. A Merck spokeswoman would only refer me to the VAERS Web site.

"CDC is still saying this is a safe vaccine. With Pap smears, there was no medical reason for fast-tracking FDA approval. They made it sound like it was some kind of pandemic," Tarsell added. "No one ever calls you, no one ever follows up."

Indeed, two months after Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., asked CDC to contact Tarsell, she has yet to hear from them. The feds "totally ignored us," echoed Ericzon.

Jeffry John Aufderheide is the father of a child injured as a result of vaccination. As editor of the website www.vactruth.com he promotes well-educated pediatricians, informed consent, and full disclosure and accountability of adverse reactions to vaccines.

  • I don’t know what it is going to take for America to fully wake up. I think it is starting, with the rejection of H1N1.

    But media is so controlled that it is hard for people to get honest information. It is all Big Pharma garbage.


  • These crimes against humanity & those who commit them will be caught up to very soon & held accountable.

    Look up media email contacts, people, & hold media accountable by demanding truth & fairness in reporting.

    Probably more to the point you should have published how many deaths are attributed to cervical cancer annually in the US (~4,000) and worldwide (~250,000).

  • @VVV: You’re re-framing the debate. We are sold that the product is safe, when clearly there are major problems.

    Thank you for reading.

  • I stopped my daughter having the vaccine and was angered by the school giving out leaflets with very little information to give the students the full picture. in a school of 1200 kids about 700 girls ranging from 12 to 18 have had the vaccine why? If they have protected sex, regular smears there would be no need. The kids deserve the full picture, it states they need two doses, and the vaccine only offers short term protection, and why has the vaccine not been fully researched, the vaccine has only been out about five years, how do the manufacturers know its safe. My daughter has had peer pressure for not having the vaccine too, an what is in it? Maxine BSc(Hons)Science MA ASD

    People do die of cervical cancer but in my opinion after reading the Gardasil research I do not believe that Gardasil prevents it. In women who are sexually active it increases the risk. My opinion is that the intention of this vaccine is to sterilize young women for depopulation purposes. Remember all the lies Merck told about Vioxx? They cannot be trusted. Why are we experimenting on our young people with a transgenic vaccine? Surly this vaccine should not have been fast tracked. The FDA is so corrupted by corporate greed they are letting children die.

    The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative are all for this vaccine and more. Population control is what is intended. I realized after my daughter had her first and only shot. I still do not know for sure whether or not the vaccine she received in Aug. 2009, contained squalene. Health and Human Services wanted to put squalene into many vaccines including Gardasil as it was ordered in July of 2009. The Truth About Gardasil website is a good reference. I

    I got the 3 Gardacil vaccines when I was 25, turning 26, which is the upper age limit. I regret it totally. I had strange side effects: went to sleep for 5-6 hours when I got home after my first vaccine (which is very unusual for me) and had strong fatigue and after the 2nd & 3rd vaccine I had severe muscle twitching for months after, which my doc poopooed. I had regular Pap Smears and blood tests since i was 18 and was diagnosed with HPV in December ’09, several years after the vaccine(and for the record, I didn’t become sexually active til I was 25, and feel I should have kept waiting to do so; abstinence is a better mandate for girls!) So much for disease prevention. My Mom is very suspicious the vaccine may have caused my HPV, due to clear smears and blood tests prior to the vaccine. More testing needs to be done and it should NOT be mandatory to vaccinate young girls if their lives and futures are in jeopardy! My future is changed forever…

  • @Harley,

    Thank you for sharing your story. You might also want to tell your story to the folks at http://www.truthaboutgardasil.org.

    But, you’re exactly right – they know if you already have the HPV and get vaccinated for it with Gardasil, the chances of you getting cancer are elevated.

  • Norma Erickson

    Harley, The SaneVax Team has been suggesting people who have experienced abnormal pap tests after HPV vaccination be tested to find out what genotype the abnormal cells are associated with.One of the problems is the HPV typing tests that are readily available to medical consumers are not accurate enough to determine exactly what type of HPV is present. Our organization has partnered with a lab that can offer an accurate test.
    If the genotype of HPV associated with your abnormal cells is vaccine-relevant (type 16, or 18), you will have conclusive proof the vaccine failed. If it is not vaccine relevant, the vaccine manufacturer may have targeted the wrong HPV type for your geographical area–again showing the vaccine will not work for people who live in your location. Should you want more information, it is available via this link: http://sanevax.org/resources/post-vaccination.shtml
    Thank you for having the courage to share your story.

  • HarleyR

    Thank you for your support and the information. It’s very appreciated. I’m needing to get into my doctor this month and will share your information with her as well as my Mom. I know my Mom, my boyfriend(who was not the source of my HPV, & has been with me since before I was diagnosed and has stayed with me!), and my close friends are my biggest supporters and want me to get through this. I’m praying I don’t get cancer but I guess I’ll find out this visit. Hopefully my doctor will support my attempt at getting to the bottom of why I’m HPV positive after the vaccine. She’s a remarkable doctor and even through such traumatic health news like this, she never has made me feel like the leper I sometimes feel like I am. It’s tough but maybe looking at it as an opportunity to help future generations of young girls avoid such a problem I can turn a negative into a positive and channel my frustration to a positive result. I’m more driven to do something than I have been. I’m scared to death of having cancer and the pain associated but it’s time to suck it up and do something. Thank you so much.

  • Harley, you have awesome courage. I’m glad you are speaking up about this.

  • i heard that toyota recalled all those vehicles and now selling those with any modification in asia …………

  • Midthenight

    Hmmm, this is to be given BEFORE u are sexually active as u may not receive the injections if u have already contracted hpv virus which btw a large majority of women carry but never get cancer. Findings above werw primarily on young women who could have been sexually active but never told their parents or doctor.
