Dr. Diane Harper was a leading developer and expert responsible for the Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies, which secured the approval of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. Although Dr. Harper authored many published papers about the vaccines, she is now pressing the red alert button on the serious consequences, as well as the irrelevancy, of these vaccines.
Dr. Harper made her surprising announcement at the 4th International Conference on Vaccination, which took place on October 2-4, 2009 in Reston, Virginia. Reportedly, her speech was supposed to support the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but instead she turned on her corporate bosses, in a very public way in order to clear her conscience about the deadly vaccines so she “could sleep at night.”
Dr. Harper explained in her presentation that the risk of cervical cancer in the U.S. is already very low and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States. In fact, 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90 percent in two years. Harper also spoke about the safety concern.
Interestingly, all the trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and older, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds. So far, approximately 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects just from Gardasil to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and this number only reflects parents who underwent all the requirements for reporting adverse reactions. Surprisingly, at the present time, according to the latest VAERS Report, 139 deaths from girls treated with the HPV related vaccinations are officially known. At the time of Dr. Harper’s speech, it was recorded to be 44 deaths.
Some of the reported side effects include Guillian Barre Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently—sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation. In most cases, parents are not made aware of these risks.
Dr. Diane Harper said, “About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life. Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 percent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to precancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.”
There is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer. From the manufacturers own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about the same as the chance of her being struck by lightning.
And really, is it necessary for a 9-year-old girl to receive a vaccination for an extremely rare and symptomless venereal disease that the immune system usually kills anyway?
As long as you research the risk of adverse reactions associated with this vaccine and are certain that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks, you won’t have as much doubt. Is the pharmaceutical company placing profits over safety?
