Cancer Vaccine Linked to Pancreatitis
Gardasil, the cervical cancer vaccine, which is being advised for all
young women, may be causing pancreatitis, a painful, debilitating
disease that can be fatal. Australian sources reported that three
women developed pancreatitis shortly after receiving the vaccine.
Gardasil protects women from strains of the HPV (human
papillomavirus) that cause 70 percent of all cervical cancer. But
numerous cases of young women being stricken with various potentially
deadly complications have arisen all over the world. Eighteen deaths
have been reported as well as 8,000 adverse reactions which include
paralysis and seizures. Australia alone reported over 1,000 suspected
reactions to the vaccine, although most were not life-threatening and
included headaches, dizziness and vomiting.
Acute pancreatitis is characterized by sudden, severe abdominal pain.
Pancreatic enzymes burn and irritate the pancreas, then leak out into
the abdominal cavity. Complications can include heart, respiratory or
kidney failure, all of which can be fatal.
Dr. Amitabha Das, writing in the Medical Journal of Australia, said,
"We suggest that pancreatitis be considered in cases of abdominal
pain following HPV vaccination."
CNN Reports on 9,749 Adverse Gardasil Reactions
Okay, liberals, it's "real" now. CNN, the Clinton News Network, is
reporting on the problems with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil.
Some 9,749 adverse reactions and 21 deaths have been reported in
connection with the Gardasil vaccination.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) still says Gardasil is safe,
though nearly 10,000 adverse reactions is getting pretty high to call
Last year, Dr. Diane Harper, one of the researchers who developed
criticized the aggressive marketing campaign Merc and state governments
initiated for Gardasil vaccinations.
While South Dakota only made the vaccine available at taxpayer
expense, some states tried to make vaccination mandatory.
Since Gardasil doesn't stop other STDs, and doesn't even stop all
forms of HPV, and women can still get cervical cancer even without
HPV, and pap smears are still recommended despite the vaccination, I
think we'll forgo the Gardasil risk for my daughter.
