New Worries About Gardasil Safety
There are new concerns about Gardasil, the vaccine that prevents a virus that causes cervical cancer. It's approved for girls as young as nine. And five million have received it since it was approved two years ago. The FDA and its maker insist it is safe, but now exclusive information has been released on some very serious side effects.
Gabby Swank was a straight-A student and cheerleader. But that was before she became very ill following the standard dose of three Gardasil vaccinations, Attkisson reports.

You know the commercial. It showed teenage girls saying "I want to be one less" who gets the HPV virus, which is linked to cervical cancer.

Gabby got sicker after each shot, progressing to seizures, strokes and heart problems. It was her neurologist who suspected Gardasil was to blame.

Last fall, the government and vaccine maker Merck concluded there's no link between Gardasil and serious adverse events like Gabby's. But a new analysis calls that finding into question.

National Vaccine Information Center, a private vaccine-safety group, compared Gardasil adverse events to another vaccine, one also given to young people, but for meningitis. Gardasil had three times the number of Emergency Room visits - more than 5,000. Reports of side effects were up to 30 times higher with Gardasil.
"If I'd have known, we never would have gotten the shot," said Emily Tarsell, whose daughter, Chris, died three weeks after her third Gardasil shot. She was one of the 29 fatalities reported in two years. "And she'd be here to hug."

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the NVIC, said: "Now we know from this report that there are more reactions and deaths associated with Gardasil than with another vaccine given in the same age group. It's irresponsible not to take action."

Merck, the FDA and CDC question the value of the new analysis, say they continue to review the data, Gardasil remains safe and effective, and its benefits outweigh the risks.

Those who believe the vaccine won’t hurt them aren't convinced. Gabby isn't cheering anymore and is too sick to even attend school.

Meantime, Merck has asked the FDA to
approve it for boys, who can pass on the cancer causing virus to girls, meaning the number of people getting Gardasil may double.

Dr. Iverson's Comment
Completely and totally irresponsible all in the name of financial greed; who is really running the FDA?  
Well, this vaccine may get a new name- Gardakill.   Certainly no joking matter for those 29 innocent girls that were just doing what their parents were told was best by their family doctors. You can’t blame the doctors either, they are just as brainwashed by the drug companies. Remember, the drug companies are educating the doctors with their own research on their products. Do you think doctors have time to educate themselves on these drugs? Even if you don’t like Michael Moore, go see the movie “Sicko” for insight into the drug mania.  
I know I am sounding sarcastic but this article made me just RED HOT MAD!   To think the next step is to vaccinate another 5 million little boys! Cha Ching! I hear the money now!
So what is the next step? Firstly- get people aware and educated! Pass this information around to all those you know with teenage children. 
Secondly, we have to wake up as a civilization and start talking to our children about sex at an early age. We talk to them about drugs and alcohol and stealing, why don’t we talk to them about other risky behaviors? 
Sex is a real fact of humanity and the instinctual animal-like nature of all human beings, regardless of who is trying to stop it or ignore it.  That means that teenagers, with their hormones bursting through the roof, are going to have to be educated about what is happening to their bodies before it happens! Parents must educate their children on abstinence AND the use of protective barrier methods like condoms (just in case).   We do not want to depend on a drug or a vaccine to do the job for us!
Birth control with pills, or patches, or injections are not enough here, this is not about preventing unwanted pregnancy, this is about preventing the spread of a disease- no different than protecting from any other STD. All boys and girls need to be taught the importance of preventing the spread of disease, even if the parents think their children are going to be abstinent.  In some cases it may be wise to provide our daughters with condoms in case their partner is not using them.  We don’t want them to think of sex as dirty or evil, but rather the risks that are involved when a couple is not in a monogamous relationship. 
Aside from educating our youth about the risks of sexual behavior, nutritionally the diet should consist of less prepared foods and junk foods and sodas, and more whole foods from meat and fish and egg proteins, whole grains, and vegetables (good luck with teenagers’ right?). Also I recommend a good multi-vitamin in a capsulated form as well as a cod-liver oil (1 tablespoon daily) or vitamin A (25,000 IU daily) to protect and fortify the mucosa of all skin (particularly the vaginal and cervical mucosa). Water drinking (about 40-60 ounces daily) is very important to make sure the mucous is produced in ample amounts to add further protection to the tissues.
Please parents, this is about the health and well being of your sons and daughters. It is time to lose the embarrassment and be realistic about human sexuality. Start talking to your children while they are young about sex, the birds and the bees, and how it is a natural aspect of all Life. Talk to them about abstinence, monogamy, and the prevention of spreading disease; it could save your child’s life!
Be Well!
