Minister for Health’s Reaction to Gardasil Reactions
Recently our minister for health, Leo Varadkar, made a dictatorial speech on adverse Gardasil reactions, condemning fellow T.D.s who were speaking on behalf of teenage girls who have been seriously ill since the Gardasil vaccine. He spoke eloquently but, keen to smear their genuine concerns, he naively suggested T.D.s defending the girls were simply paranoid about Big Pharma just wanting to make profits¹. Of course drug companies want to make profits; as publicly quoted companies their first priority is to their share holders. Reality tells us otherwise. For starters, GSK Fined Over Illegal Vaccine Experiments Killing 14 Babies and here. Varadkar throws in the red herring of Andrew Wakefield and his MMR controversy. A short video of the discussion – which the minister is not having – is available below.
Does he assume drug manufacturers are charities? Coincidentally, just this week, it was revealed the nuns running an orphanage in Cork were told by the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (CICA) to dump files relating to vaccine experiments at the orphanage. It wouldn’t be the first time drug companies exploited orphans and kids with special needs for vaccine experiments in Ireland, as has been documented. Remember, this is the guy who, only last year, called for an enquiry into apparent corruption at Bus Eireann!
Perhaps he assumes there’s no such thing as bad reactions and if you listened to the interview with a genito-urinary physician discussing Gardasil on Newstalk with Pat Kenny (December 14th, approximately a quarter way through) this week – you’d think anything is allowed in the name of science. “Ah, but it saves lives.” It’s not out long enough yet to make such a claim but approximately sixty die from cancer of the uterus yearly and not all had a prior infection with HPV (which is never acknowledged), so the vaccine would not have been of benefit to them. Yet we now have 131 seriously ill from the jab! Since advocates of the vaccine like to play the numbers game: “the benefits outweigh the risks,” as the mantra goes, then they should consider the real numbers and the real people behind the numbers.
There are 131 Gardasil victims according to the discussion on TV3 on Monday night, but that figure now has to be revised – upwards – according to the Irish Independent. Many more personal accounts can be read here.
Of course drugs have adverse reactions, especially those injected straight into the bloodstream. (“Even milk injected into the bloodstream is toxic,” according to The Alchemy of Healing by Dr Edward Whitmont!) Felicitously, The Guardian has just published an apt article; Adverse drug reactions cost NHS £2bn.
End of BCG and “unnecessary side-effects”
But maybe vaccines are different? They “save lives,” goes the emotive, guilt-inducing catchcry. It’s even been claimed by the vaccine lobby that drug companies lose money on vaccines! Well, again ironically, last week HIQA, Irelands health information and quality authority, suggested an end to the BCG programme (TB vaccine). One benefit would be the avoidance of “unnecessary side-effects,” says the report.
“Side-effects”! What side-effects and why the delay in telling us? Again, quite timely, experts on TB and the BCG vaccine met in India to announce Ineffective BCG Vaccine Behind TB Cases. Dr Shekhar Mande has more experience than most on the subject. He heads the National Centre for Cell Science, Pune, India.
Another defence by unthinking, defensive advocates of a drug – who almost always have a financial, emotional or professional interest in it² – is that there is no evidence, forgetting that “absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”
Comment and Questions
Returning to Pat Kenny’s discussion on Gardasil above, it’s reasonable to ask if a genito-urinary physician is qualified to comment on a generalised, constitutional reaction when his specialty is in a localised area of the body? After all, the Japanese ceased giving the HPV vaccine in 2013: “The focus of the Japanese inquiry is not on injection-site reactions; instead, it is on systemic reactions.”
Is the vaccine the only prevention? And what about investigating a possible reason the HPV virus becomes a problem? By presenting as warty excrescences on the skin, conventional treatment is superficial and harmful: the removal of the growth but this never removes the virus which causes the growths. Since the growth on the skin is the body’s way of dealing with the infection, removing the outer expression of the infection only without removing the virus, means the virus will either be thrown back onto the skin if the body is healthy enough to do so, or it will remain latent to do more harm. This dynamic is often seen when one has warts which they burn off, only for the warts to return. Removing the outer symptoms only is suppressive and we always pay a price for suppression.
Advocates dismiss the connection between the vaccine and the awful sequelae as being a “coincidence.” However, there have been such reactions within 30 seconds of the vaccine being administered, as occurred at one school in Manchester, U.K. Coincidence? And where is the proof of such coincidence? That’s an assumption, not science.
Isn’t it strange all reactions to every vaccine are identical: swelling at the site, itchy rash..? They never seem to mention constitutional symptoms in such discussions.
Gardasil only lasts for eight years and only covers eight strains of the vaccine, we learn from the discussion. Dr Derek Freedman (who has a financial interest in running a private STD clinic) claims it also provides a “cross-over” protection against other strains. Strangely, the flu jab doesn’t do likewise – which would make the annual flu jab unnecessary…
In the meantime, let’s just bury our heads in the sand.
Research trials should use placebo, a harmless substance, to compare it with the medicinal substance. However, with Gardasil, the “placebo” was aluminium which has side-effects – “making such trials invalid.”

1. Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar, is showing himself to be Janus-faced. Only two weeks after he gave his patronising diatribe against concerned T.D.s he had this to say about drug companies: Varadkar blames high drug prices on greed
2. Regarding various conflicts of interest, an advocate of Gardasil and Cevarix failed to declare a financial and professional conflict of interest in correspondence in The Lancet

New Concerns about the Human Papillomavirus Vaccine:
“HPV vaccine carries 25% chance of lifelong sterilization, study finds”,
Also, in agreement: American College of Pediatricians – January 2016 which states:
It has recently come to the attention of the College that one of the recommended vaccines could possibly be associated with the very rare but serious condition of premature ovarian failure (POF), also known as premature menopause.
… there are legitimate concerns that should be addressed:
(1) long-term ovarian function was not assessed in either the original rat safety studies3,4 or in the human vaccine trials, (2) most primary care physicians are probably unaware of a possible association between HPV4 and POF and may not consider reporting POF cases or prolonged amenorrhea (missing menstrual periods) to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), (3) potential mechanisms of action have been postulated based on autoimmune associations with the aluminum adjuvant used1 and previously documented ovarian toxicity in rats from another component, polysorbate 80,2 and (4) since licensure of Gardasil® in 2006, there have been about 213 VAERS reports (per the publicly available CDC WONDER VAERS database) involving amenorrhea, POF or premature menopause, 88% of which have been associated with Gardasil®.5
… The College is posting this statement so that individuals considering the use of human papillomavirus vaccines could be made aware of these concerns pending further action by the regulatory agencies and manufacturers. While there is no strong evidence of a causal relationship between HPV4 and ovarian dysfunction, this information should be public knowledge for physicians and patients considering these vaccines
