A newly-published study has revealed that Merck & Co., the corporate mastermind behind the infamous Gardasil vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV), conveniently forgot to research the effects of this deadly vaccine on women's reproductive systems. And at least one young woman, in this case from Australia, bore the brunt of this inexcusable failure after discovering that her own ovaries had been completely destroyed as a result of getting the vaccine.
Published in the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal (BMJ), the harrowing recount of this young 16-year-old girl's experience should give pause to all parents currently being pressured by their doctors into having their young daughters jabbed with Gardasil. Robbed of her natural ability to experience full womanhood, this young woman experienced early menopause, in which her ovaries completely shut down before they were even able to fully develop.
Entitled Premature ovarian failure 3 years after menarche in a 16-year-old girl following human papillomavirus vaccination, this latest case study provides solid evidence that Gardasil is, at the very least, a serious threat to normal ovarian function. Not only was the damaged girl examined and verified to have had healthy ovaries prior to the shots, but there were no other identified factors besides Gardasil that could have possibly been involved in her sudden ill-fate.
Worse is the fact that information later obtained from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for the case -- TGA is Australia's equivalent of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the U.S. -- revealed that Merck had never even conducted safety testing on Gardasil in relation to its effects on women's ovaries. According to the report, Merck had only tested Gardasil's effects on male testes.
"Although the TGA's Australian Public Assessment Report for Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent Vaccine, February 2011, does report on the histology of vaccinated rat testes and epididymides, no histological report has been available for vaccinated rat ovaries," explains the report. "[A] histological report of the ovaries of vaccinated rats remained unavailable beyond a numbering of the corpora lutea present at postweaning euthanasia following the first litter."
In other words, Merck either intentionally or accidentally -- either option is completely unacceptable, by the way -- failed to check whether or not Gardasil has the potential to damage young women's reproductive systems, even though young women have always been the primary target market for the vaccine. Only recently have young boys been pulled into the Gardasil fray, despite the fact that the long-term side effects of the vaccine in males is still largely unknown.
As reported by investigative journalist Heidi Stevenson, there are at least two additive ingredients in Gardasil that may be responsible for damaging women's ovaries. These ingredients are polysorbate 80, an emulsifying preservative, and L-histidine, a natural amino acid. Both of these ingredients are, of course, used in processed foods, which millions of people consume every day. But injecting them into the body has a much different biological effect than simply consuming them.
As it turns out, polysorbate 80, which also goes by the names Tween 80, Alkest, and Canarcel, has been shown in studies to damage female reproduction. Not only does this chemical additive greatly accelerate sexua| maturation in women, but it also tends to reduce the weight and function of both the ovaries and the uterus. Similarly, L-histidine, when injected into muscle tissue, can cause the body to develop an autoimmune response to the natural substance, which can lead to many of the serious side effects being observed in many young girls who have been jabbed with Gardasil.
Be sure to read the following two reports by Heidi Stevenson to learn more about how Gardasil appears to damage female reproduction:

Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way. When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.
“I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn’t help but question why we need the vaccine at all.” – Joan Robinson
All trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and above, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds. So far, 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil alone to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (V.A.E.R.S.), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions.
Dr. Harper, the vaccine developer, claimed that she was speaking out, so that she might finally be able to sleep at night.
“About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have H.P.V. at some stage of their life. Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.” – Dr. Diane Harper
One must understand how the establishment’s word games are played to truly understand the meaning of the above quote, and one needs to understand its unique version of “science”.
When they report that untreated cases “can” lead to something that “may” lead to cervical cancer, it really means that the relationship is merely a hypothetical conjecture that is profitable if people actually believe it. In other words, there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless.
Why do nine-year-old girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway?
You are likely misinterpreting Dr. Diane Harper's overall postion on HPV vaccination. Dr. Harper published a paper in 2011 (two years after what you are quoting) in a reputable Obstetrics and Gynecology journal:
"Next Generation Cancer Protection: The Bivalent HPV Vaccine for Females"
Lead researcher, Dr. Diane Harper, wrote:
"Cervarix is an excellent choice for both screened and unscreened populations due to its long-lasting protection, its broad protection for at least five oncogenic HPV types, the potential to use only one-dose for the same level of protection, and its safety"
And... The "44 deaths" urban legend lives on! I've recommended it before... I invite you all to READ EVERY VAERS REPORT where a death occured followed an HPV immunization. Determine the absolute evidence, supported by a thorough follow-up scientific and forensic medical investigation that confirms that the 44 deaths, without a shred of doubt, were all caused by an HPV vaccination.
A few of my favorite VAERS entries:

Every time a new scientific study is published with regards to a vaccine or a dietary supplement, the mainstream media is quick to praise the former and denounce the latter without ever actually reading the study in question, let alone critically analyzing it to get an honest grasp of its true implications. One prominent example of this is the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil, which mainstream media outlets have repeatedly touted as safe and effective using mounds of fraudulent, misinterpreted, and sometimes never-even-looked-at "safety" data.
Recently, a surveillance study evaluating the potential autoimmune side effects of Gardasil was used by the mainstream media as "evidence" that the vaccine is supposedly not linked to such conditions, and is thus safe, even though the study did not actually come to this conclusion. As reported by Dr. Chandler Marrs, Ph.D., from HormonesMatter.com, the study itself was poorly conducted, it contains obvious statistical skewing, it did not include a matched case control group, and it truly did not come to any meaningful conclusions about Gardasil's safety.
But this did not stop the mainstream media from running wildly deceptive headlines like "No increase in autoimmune conditions from use of HPV vaccine" and "HPV vaccine unlikely triggered autoimmune disease," which were designed to trick the public into thinking that "science" somehow supports the safety of Gardasil. The fact that dishonest researchers were willing to craft such a specious study and pass it off as valid suggests that there truly are many potential dangers associated with Gardasil that the medical establishment is trying to hide from public view.
"By imputing the control group, [the researchers] guaranteed that they would not find differences between the unvaccinated and vaccinated group," writes Dr. Marrs about one of the major flaws with this particular study. "Poking through the statistical shenanigans, if we look only at the raw numbers from the abridged case pool, there appeared to be a high rate of Hashimoto's, rheumatoid and other autoimmune conditions" caused by Gardasil, he adds.
So much for Gardasil not being linked to autoimmune disease. As usual, all the mainstream media babbling about the alleged safety of Gardasil as supposedly illustrated by this latest study was erroneous -- the study actually suggests that Gardasil is unsafe and a potential cause of autoimmune disease!
As you probably already well know, the mainstream media is notorious for constantly skewing study findings and spreading misinformation about vaccines and dietary supplements. Another recent example of this is the omega-3 fatty acid study, which dinosaur media hacks have been using to claim that fish oil causes cancer. Not only is this suggestion a gross misinterpretation of what the study actually found, but like with the Gardasil study, no honest inquiry was ever conducted to see whether the study was even valid -- honest journalists later found it to be a fraud.
What we really need more of today is honest, independent scientific research, an endeavor that HormonesMatter.com is currently trying to undertake specifically for Gardasil and its counterpart, Cervarix. HormonesMatter.com is right now conducting an HPV vaccine survey that it hopes will eventually shed light on the truth about these controversial vaccines, and your help is needed to bring this study to fruition.
"There is a lack of data about who is at risk for adverse events and whether certain pre-existing conditions increase one's risk for an adverse event," explains HormonesMatter.com. "There is also a lack of data about the long term health effects of these vaccines. The purpose of this survey is to fill that data void; to learn more about the risks for and nature of adverse events associated with each of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix."

There is no evidence that Gardasil or Cervarix can prevent cancer better than a decent screening program. There is strong evidence that they can produce severe and life-threatening harm. This report by 4 scientists documents how science has been corrupted & misused to promote these life-devastating vaccines.
by Heidi Stevenson
Scientists who have done extensive research on the topics of immunization and autoimmune disorders have produced a new paper concluding that:
[P]hysicians should remain within the rigorous rules of evidence-based medicine, to adequately assess the risks versus the benefits of HPV vaccination.
In the context of the paper, it’s quite clear that they are saying the evidence does not support a positive risk-benefit ratio for the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix.
The paper starts by discussing three cases of young women, studied by the authors, whose development had been quite normal, yet who experienced ovarian failure after receiving HPV vaccinations. They were studied extensively and all other potential causes were ruled out, leaving only the vaccines as the causative agent. They also point out another well-documented case similar to the ones they had investigated.
These are “only” four young women whose lives have been devastated, but the methods of treating girls who are recently post-menarchal is now to give them hormonal drugs, which can mask the symptoms of ovarian failure. The truth is that we do not know how many have been affected this way, and very likely won’t know for years.
These cases are then compared with the newly-described syndrome, autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), which can be characterized by the existence of several criteria. All of the girls fit the definition. Following is a copy of the table that displays which of the symptoms each young woman suffered:
Notice that a positive diagnosis for ASIA requires that the individual suffer from at least two major, or one major and two minor, symptoms. All three of these young women suffered from the vaccine-induced ASIA syndrome.
ASIA conditions include Gulf War syndrome, macrophagic myofasciitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and silicone implant-induced autoimmunity (primarily from silicone breast implants).
The authors point out that the ASIA symptoms:
… are all too easily ignored or disregarded as irrelevant and non-vaccine related not only by patients and physicians, but also by scientists involved in design of vaccine trials. Nonetheless, many ill-defined medical conditions that fall under the ASIA spectrum are frequently disabling and thus of significant clinical relevance.
In other words, although far too many clinicians, doctors, and researchers ignore ASIA symptoms, calling them “irrelevant and non-vaccine related”, the fact is that they most assuredly are associated with severely disabling conditions.
The paper then goes on to discuss HPV vaccines and autoimmunity. They point out that the literature currently documents:
… numerous cases substantiating the link between adverse immune reactions and HPV vaccines, including fatal reactions.
They cite the case of a teenage girl who suffered dizziness, paresthesia, memory lapses, excessive tiredness, night sweats, loss of ability to use common objects, intermittent chest pain, and sudden racing heart after HPV vaccination. She died suddenly six months after the third Gardasil vaccination. The autopsy was unable to identify any toxicological, microbiological, or anatomical cause of death. However, investigations by a researcher showed that blood and spleen had been contaminated with HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments, which corresponded with ones fragments found in Gardasil vaccine vials from different lots. The authors conclude:
These findings suggested that the quadrivalent HPV vaccine was indeed the most probable causal factor in this particular case. Specifically, the HPV DNA fragments detected in Gardasil vials appeared to be firmly bound to the aluminium adjuvant used in the vaccine formulation and thus likely protected against enzymatic degradation by endogenous nucleases.
The authors then point out that HPV vaccination has been associated with several autoimmune diseases, including Guillain-Barré syndrome, demyelinating neuropathies, systemic lupus erythematosus, pancreatitis, vasculitis, thrombocytopenic purpura, and autoimmune hepatitis. The most common autoimmune disorders associated with HPV vaccines are neurological in nature.
After a brief discussion of several well-documented cases of neurological autoimmune disorders post-HPV vaccination, the authors state:
Indeed, Gardasil appears to have failed to meet a single one of the four criteria required by the FDA for Fast Track approval. [Emphasis mine.]
Several ingredients in the two HPV vaccines are known to be a problem. One is the use of the microbe Saccharomyces cerevisiae, common yeast, as the medium in which the Gardasil antigen is developed. S. cerevisiae is known to trigger autoimmune response, as discussed recently in Yeast in Vaccines Tied to Autoimmune Diseases. Cervarix, though, was produced with a different medium, Trichoplusiani.
The two vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, are distinctly different in another way. Gardasil contains a single adjuvant, aluminium hydroxyphosphate sulphate, while Cervarix utilizes a combination of aluminum hydroxide and the oil-based monophosphoryl lipid A.
These differences, since they involve the hyper-activation of the immune system and a known trigger for autoimmune disorders in only one of the vaccines, suggest that a recent study’s finding that there are no adverse effects whatsoever in either vaccine beggar belief.
The authors note that there are important biases in the study:
Most significantly, in every clinical trial evaluating safety for both Gardasil and Cervarix, the so-called placebo groups were given injections that included an active aluminum adjuvant!
Though this is a common practice in vaccine trials, it is obviously a blatant means of biasing the results.
Can it be any wonder that these researchers have concluded that there is no evidence base to document the safety of either Gardasil or Cervarix? Clearly, any doctor who genuinely cares for patient safety must treat this lack of safety evidence as condemnatory of the HPV vaccines. As the authors state in their conclusion:
Given that persistently infected women with HPV seem not to develop cancer if they are regularly screened and that the long-term clinical benefits of HPV vaccination are still a matter of speculation, a more rigorous assessment of vaccine risks and benefits is recommend[ed]. Thus, physicians should remain within the rigorous rules of evidence-based medicine, to adequately assess the risks versus the benefits of HPV vaccination.
There is no legitimate reason for pushing these vaccines in the face of strong evidence indicating severe debility and even death induced by HPV vaccines, combined with a lack of evidence of efficacy.
On every packet of cigarettes sold, there is a warning, Smoking Kills, to deter people from damaging their health by smoking.
Governments around the world decided to put this warning on every packet of cigarettes due to the high death rate caused by the toxic effects of nicotine and other additives.
It is a great pity that these governments do not apply the same forward-thinking standards to HPV vaccines and the information sheets offered to parents. Based on the evidence, these vaccines should also carry a government-issued heath warning, stating HPV Vaccines Can Kill.
The latest statistics published on the United States VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) in June 2013 show a staggering 140 lives have been lost due to the HPV Vaccine.
Tens of Thousands of Adverse Reactions, or Hundreds of Thousands?
The VAERS statistics show that HPV vaccinations have caused the following adverse reactions in the US:
These figures were provided by Leslie Carol Botha on July 15, 2013, on her insightful website Holy Hormones Journal. She wrote:
It is estimated that only 1 to 10% of the HPV vaccine-injured are reporting. So start adding zeros on to the reports of 140 deaths. And then ask yourself – are the HPV vaccines deadly? For 140 families they are. And that’s just what is being reported. 
If she is correct, HPV vaccines may have potentially injured over three hundred thousand people in a single year, which I am sure you will agree is a colossal number of casualties. Despite this estimate, no official action of any kind against the HPV vaccine has been taken. Why not?
If any other product caused this number of casualties, there would be a public outcry demanding that governments ban the product. Instead, the world stays silent and the damage continues.
If these figures were not bad enough, the two pharmaceutical companies responsible for manufacturing these vaccines, Merck (Gardasil) and GlaxoSmithKline (Cervarix), along with governments worldwide, are now looking for a new age group to vaccinate with these lethal vaccines – newborn babies.
Will Newborns Be the Next Victims?
On August 1, 2013, an article by Heidi Stevenson sent shock waves around the world when she announced:
If you can push the most dangerous vaccines in use today on teen and pre-teen girls, and later on boys of the same age, without any proof that they work, then why not give them to newborn infants—plus another ‘booster’ later on? That appears to be planned for Gardasil and Cervarix, along with a slick new marketing program, thanks to the vaccine-industrial complex. 
In Ms. Stevenson’s well-written and well-referenced article, she cites a paper titled "Reframing Cervical Cancer Prevention: Expanding the Field Towards Prevention of Human Papillomavirus Infections and Related Diseases," written by FX Bosch et al. Ms. Stevenson points out that the authors did not even consider the fact that the two HPV vaccines currently in use cause some of the worst and most common adverse reactions of any vaccines. She also revealed that the paper was financed by major government agencies. These include the European Commission and Institute of Health “Carlos III” of the Spanish government.
The abstract of the paper by Bosch et al., which can be found on PubMed , suggests that the hepatitis B vaccination program offers a good model to introduce the HPV vaccine to infants. The authors state that newborn and infant immunization of the hepatitis B vaccine achieves a rapid reduction in the prevalence of the HBV carrier rates in immunized cohorts of children, reducing liver cirrhosis and liver cancer decades later.
It appears that these authors are actually suggesting that parents have their newborn babies vaccinated with not just one, but two vaccines for sexually transmitted diseases. Babies do not catch sexually transmitted diseases unless the mother has them, so why not screen the mother?
Why are Babies Given STD Vaccines?
Dr. Judith Reisman believes that she has the answer, which she presents in her paper "STD Vaccinations Aid Global Child Sex Traffic? Does Mandating Pediatric Hep B [and HPV] Vaccinations Aid the Global Child Sex Traffic?" She wrote:
Research by Risbud et al. in Sexually Transmitted Infections in 1992 and a steady stream of studies confirm that Hepatitis B is a venereal disease. ‘[C]ommercial sex work and history of a genital ulcers were independently associated with [Hep B] underscor[ing] the need to provide HBV vaccine to commercial sex workers and their clients.’
Newborn babies are hardly ‘sex workers’ or their ‘clients.’ Yet, in 1991 USA hospitals (covertly—as without public debate or discussion) mandated hepatitis B vaccinations of neonates born to normal, married, uninfected mothers.  (emphasis added)
Her paper is extremely disturbing, but in my opinion, well worth considering, because the pharmaceutical industries and governments must have a good reason to even consider giving two vaccines for sexually transmitted diseases to babies at birth. After all, if governments insist on vaccinating newborn babies with toxic vaccines, then wouldn’t giving newborn babies the MMR or the DPT vaccinations be more beneficial, as babies are more likely to come into contact with measles or tetanus than an STD?
So, is the sex trafficking of children the reason that governments are now considering vaccinating newborns with the HPV vaccine or is the real reason population control?
Will You Risk Your Child’s Fertility for This Vaccine?
Dr. Deirdre Little has recently linked the Gardasil vaccine to a sixteen-year-old patient under her care entering an early menopause. Her report states that before the sixteen year old received the Gardasil vaccine during the fall of 2008, her menstrual cycle was perfectly normal. However, by January 2009, her cycle had become irregular, and over the course of the next two years, her menses (bleeds) had become increasingly irregular. By 2011, she had ceased menstruating altogether. Later examinations of the girl confirmed that her ovaries had ceased producing eggs. [5, 6]
Dr. Little is not alone in her concerns.
The Japanese government has become so concerned about the HPV vaccine causing adverse reactions that they have decided to withdraw their support for the HPV vaccine schedule altogether. Their decision came after they received approximately 2000 reports from women and girls suffering severe adverse reactions after receiving HPV vaccinations, including long-term pain, numbness, paralysis and infertility. 
If all this was not worrying enough, one mother, Ms. Linda Stewart, told SaneVax how the HPV vaccine Cervarix destroyed her daughter’s life completely. She wrote:
Shannon basically spent the summer of 2011 in her room reading a book or sleeping, shutting herself off from the rest of the world. She had never had a problem with her menstrual cycle before, but her periods stopped in April. Her menstrual cycle did not resume until November, when it came back with a vengeance. In the end, she had to be put on medication to help control the heavy flow. Even so, it took five months for her cycle to return to normal. So far she has had no further problems in this area.
By this time Shannon was in such pain she would not participate in PE at school (I must add that the PE teacher was very understanding). I then returned to the GP who referred her for another course of physiotherapy, despite the lack of success with the first round. 
This is just one example of the many personal stories that can be found on the Internet, and yet nothing has been done to protect this from happening to others. In comparison, in the USA, in 2009 Maclaren recalled one million strollers after twelve children had fingers amputated by their pushchairs’ folding mechanism. 
Just from the evidence that I have provided, HPV vaccines clearly are not safe, and yet no government to date has ever banned these vaccines. Other products have been banned for far less dangers, so why is a vaccine that has killed 140 women and children and maimed thousands of others been allowed to stay on the market?
To offer the HPV vaccine to newborn babies along with the hepatitis B vaccine is pure evil. Many babies are born prematurely and we have to ask ourselves what the impact of these two highly dangerous and toxic vaccines given at the same time will be. We also need to question why newborn babies need to have two vaccines for sexually transmitted diseases. Surely these are diseases that babies are very unlikely to come into contact with.
If a major company such as Maclaren is willing to recall one million strollers from the market because twelve children have had their fingers amputated, then why are governments refusing to acknowledge that a vaccine that they recommend is reported to have been responsible for the death of 140?

Post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena are a major facet of the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) and different vaccines, including HPV, have been identified as possible causes.
The medical history of three young women who presented with secondary amenorrhea following HPV vaccination was collected. Data regarding type of vaccine, number of vaccination, personal, clinical and serological features, as well as response to treatments were analyzed.
All three patients developed secondary amenorrhea following HPV vaccinations, which did not resolve upon treatment with hormone replacement therapies. In all three cases sexua| development was normal and genetic screen revealed no pertinent abnormalities (i.e., Turner's syndrome, Fragile X test were all negative). Serological evaluations showed low levels of estradiol and increased FSH and LH and in two cases, specific auto-antibodies were detected (antiovarian and anti thyroid), suggesting that the HPV vaccine triggered an autoimmune response. Pelvic ultrasound did not reveal any abnormalities in any of the three cases. All three patients experienced a range of common non-specific post-vaccine symptoms including nausea, headache, sleep disturbances, arthralgia and a range of cognitive and psychiatric disturbances. According to these clinical features, a diagnosis of primary ovarian failure (POF) was determined which also fulfilled the required criteria for the ASIA syndrome.
We documented here the evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition. The increasing number of similar reports of post HPV vaccine-linked autoimmunity and the uncertainty of long-term clinical benefits of HPV vaccination are a matter of public health that warrants further rigorous inquiry.
