We have all seen the compelling commercials of young girls who want to be "one less" victim of cervical cancer. But new reports, including one on CBS News, are pointing to some very serious flaws with the new gardasil vaccination.
Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a Keynote Speaker at the Holistic Moms Network's 2008 Natural Living Conference notes that reports of adverse reactions to gardasil now account for 15 to 20 percent of all adverse reports to the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The government, however, is arguing that the approximately 9,000 HPV vaccine adverse events, including 27 deaths, reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) are not causally related to the vaccination. The adverse reaction reports are heartbreaking.
Parents - and our young women - need to become informed about the risks associated with this vaccination before making a choice about whether or not to undergo these shots. Sadly, there are no nationwide commercials advising parents to become informed about the potential risks and so we must all work together to protect our children.
