Gardisil and HPV

Gardisil has been in the media lately as the HPV Vaccine. It was created to prevent the types of HPV that cause 70% of all cervical cancer. Unfortunately, there have been many cases of injury and some death caused by this vaccine. There have also been reports that it may be ineffective in preventing some of those cancers.

Some people believe that the FDA approved it prior to proper testing, and it's so new that we do not know yet how it will affect the people who receive this vaccine later in life. There are many websites available where information is available on Gardisil and its affects. There is obviously something to be concerned about when there are so many people posting websites about one particular subject. Current adverse effects noted on many of these sites state fatigue, pain, immune disorders and other complications including death have occured. This site is one that was created by an individual, but it does have some eye opening information

One must remember that when using information off of the Internet, that there is no agency that verifies information that exists on thousands of websites. Some websites are only a persons opinion. It is best to check for references, and to make sure that you use your best judgement when choosing which sites to use for information. With that said, I decided to check the FDA site and did find that they are admitting that some people have been adversely affected by these vaccines. Their link is Feel free to check that site for information, and do some searches for websites that were created for the purpose of explaining how this vaccine has affected people and their families.

Vaccines have been a subject of discussion for a while in the medical community. Many parents are choosing to not have their children vaccinated at all, due to the Mercury and other ingredients which are questionably unhealthy. Autism and SIDS have been named as childhood illnesses that may be caused by or at least affected by vaccinations.

The ingredients (in Gardisil) are proteins of HPV Types 6, 11, 16, and 18, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate, and water for injection. This site does state that if you have allergies to polysorbate 80 or yeast you should not have this vaccination.

The medical community and Merck have not yet decided to stop promoting this vaccine, and it is still on the market. It is up to you to determine what is right for your children and yourself. Do your research and make sure that you understand the ramifications of the treatments that you accept. You must weigh out the pros and cons of these types of treatments and decide if the possible outcome is worth the risk.
