#1 News of the Day ... Cervical Cancer Vaccine

The Great HPV Vaccine Hoax Exposed

8/27/2007

Guillain Barre syndrome reported after human papillomavirus vaccine

As of May 31, there have been 13 cases of Guillain Barre syndrome (GBS) in association with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that six of the patients had received Gardasil alone, and six had also received meningococcal vaccine (Menactra). Since the end of May, an additional two cases have been reported. Gardasil is now involved in 15–20 percent of all VAERS reports that are filed.

Serious reactions attributed to HPV vaccine

According to a report from Judicial Watch, at least three deaths and 1,600 adverse reactions have been connected to Merck’s new human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil.
Causes of death were myocarditis, coronary artery thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. Two of the deaths were of girls aged 12 and 19 years. The interval from vaccination to death ranged from several hours to about 2 weeks.

Merck lobbyists work for HPV vaccine mandates; Texas governor bypasses legislature

As was predicted by parental rights advocates, the “recommendation” of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) was immediately followed by legislative proposals to force 11-year-old girls to receive the vaccine as a condition of school attendance.
Merck, which could make $1 billion per year in sales from mandatory Gardasil, is not only funding lobbyists but funneling money through Women in Government, an advocacy group made up of female legislators. A top official from Merck’s vaccine division sits on the Women in Government business council. The company refused to disclose the amount of money it has donated to that group or has spent on lobbying.

3/14/2007 ********HPV VACCINE RESEARCHER BLASTS MANDATE******A lead researcher who has been working on the HPV vaccine development for more than 20 years has now gone public, saying that the mandate is wrong, and could result in higher rates of cervical cancer. Further, she accuses the drug companies of “overselling” the vaccine as a cancer preventative. Even though this researcher has a bias toward the vaccine and is indirectly funded by Merck, she warns against its mandate. Read the Story

#2 News of the Day ... Tamiflu

12/6/2006
Tamiflu may be linked to risk of self-injury and delirium; vitamin D suggested for influenza
New safety labeling provisions for the anti-influenza drug oseltamivir phosphate (Tamiflu) warn of potential neuropsychiatric adverse effects.
The warning is based on postmarketing reports, primarily from Japan, suggesting that persons who receive Tamiflu, especially children, may be at increased risk of self-injury or delirium.
An alert sent by MedWatch, the FDA’s safety information and adverse event reporting system, advised close monitoring of patients given Tamiflu for signs of abnormal behavior.

#3 News of the Day ... Meningococcal Vaccine

09/7/2006
Meningococcal vaccine advised or required for college; side effects downplayed

Incoming college students nationwide are being told to take the meningococcal vaccine or else they may not be admitted. Here are some facts about benefits and risks compiled by AAPS General Counsel Andrew Schlafly.
Fewer than 1 in 100,000 persons contract meningococcal meningitis annually in the United States, and 50% of those cases are in infants or children younger than 4 years of age. Of those who do contract the disease, most recover fully. Fewer than 10% of the cases are fatal. There is effective antibiotic prophylaxis for those who know they have been exposed.
The disease is not easily transmitted. The primary method of transmission is by mixing saliva, as in kissing or sharing a cup with an infected person. (Note that carriers may be asymptomatic.) Even then, most people have already been exposed, and are thereby immune, to the disease. Only 5 to 15 college students nationwide die from this; the risk is far smaller than other risks faced by college students.
In September 2005, the FDA announced that five recipients of this vaccine reported serious symptoms of Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) soon after receiving the vaccine. They were ages 17 and 18, typical for the incoming college freshmen being urged to have this vaccine.
Other adverse reactions after the vaccine are very common. Headache is reported in 41% of recipients; fatigue in 35%; malaise in 24%; and joint pain in 20%. Long-term adverse effects have not been ruled out; no studies following patients for longer than 6 months are reported in the package insert. It is easy to test a vaccine in animals to see whether it causes cancer or infertility, but the package insert expressly states that the “vaccine has not been evaluated in animals for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or for impairment of fertility.”
When potential long-term harm from the vaccine is combined with the known short-term adverse effects, it is quite possible that the vaccine is causing more harm than it is preventing. For a disease that can be largely avoided by not mixing saliva with an infected person, or receiving prompt treatment if one is exposed, the insistence on vaccination rather than education is questionable.
It should be noted that the manufacturer does not even claim that the vaccine is effective against one-third or more of the strains of the meningococcal disease, according to the above package insert. Of the remaining strains, the vaccine provides no guarantee of immunity either. Thus, physicians must not assume that a vaccinated person does not have the disease.

To reduce your risk of prostate cancer, it is better to eat foods that contain the antioxidant lycopene than to take lycopene supplements, we hear from nutritionist Jo Ann Hattner, Rd. Best Sources: Tomato sauce and paste…ketchup…tomato juice. Also, pink grapefruit…guava and guava juice. Amount: A Harvard study suggests eating more than 10 servings of lycopene-rich foods a week. At the very least, eat them daily.

Seasoning your food with hot peppers fights body fat in two ways. Capsaicin, the compound that makes hot peppers hot, is the reason. It boosts your metabolism and helps reduce the amount of food eaten at each meal. It does the latter by curbing your appetite. Sources of capsaicin: Red and green chili peppers, cayenne pepper, Tabasco sauce and jalapenos.

Simple exercise fights back pain. Lower-back pain often comes from a weak quadratus - the muscle that connects the ribs, pelvis and lower spine. To strengthen it, try horizontal side supports. Lie straight on your right side. Lift your pelvis so your weight is on your right forearm and feet. Hold for eight seconds. Repeat on your left side. Do five repetitions per side, three times a week.

:: Warning!

THE ATKINS DIET WILL HARM YOU!

The American Heart Association says, "Eating large amounts of high-fat foods for a sustained period raises the risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and several types of cancer."

The health concerns of this type of diet are astounding. Only in America could the mindset of this type of diet exist.

Recent media reports have publicized the short-term weight loss that sometimes occurs with the use of low-carbohydrate weight-loss diets. Some of these reports have distorted medical facts and have ignored the potential health risks of such diets.


Looking back, when the Atkins diet started in the 70's, you will remember the harm this diet caused. People died from going into ketoacidosis and electolyte imbalances. This diet was then "tweeked" to only move dieter into ketosis. Now, this revised plan has just delayed the harm that it causes.

A few years back Rachel Huskey of Sturgeon, Missouri collapsed in her high school history class and died. The cause of death was a popular high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, according to her doctors. She had no known health problem and learned about the diet and purchased the videotapes. She followed the diet very closely, eating meat, cheese, and other high fat foods. A postmortem examination revieled low calcium and potassium levels in her blood. According to Dr. Paul Robinson, an assistant professor of child health at the University of Missouri, Columbia, those depletions disrupted Huskey's normal cardiac functions and caused her heart to stop. The doctor felt that her adherence to the diet was the cause of her death.

Please take the time to learn more about this diet before you cause yourself any harm.


:: Latest Questions

Question 1--- "I have fibroids and my doctor said I need a hysterectomy, is there any other option?"

Answer ....
YES! First, get another doctor.
I have run across many women who have this problem. They all say the same thing. Some have seeked second and third opinions all with the same suggestion from their doctors.
It is not entirely the doctors faults. They were only taught one option in medical school and most adhere rigidly to that one view. Some doctors I have encountered simply just do not understand the mechanisms of body. Case in point, I have met doctors who will put women on a birth control pill. This is 100% wrong. Fibroids are estrogen dependent benign tumors that need estrogen to grow. If estrogen is added they get bigger, if it is removed they shrink....plain and simple. This is nothing but a money making trick to stear these women toward the surgery.
On the other hand, I have run across a few doctors that specialize in this area. One of which has a near 100% success rate on naturally removing the fibroids. Dr. Strehl located near Chicago, IL is one of the leaders in this field and has helped many women who refuse the unnecessary surgery.

As far as treatment goes, there are quite a few options. Most involve diet alterations and a few other steps that are easy to follow. The jury is still out for me when it comes to homeopathy, but I have personally seen it work wonders in this area.

Any woman pondering a hysterectomy should give the matter close and careful consideration and should seek a physician who can treat in less radical ways. There are alternatives. Around 650,000 unnecessary hysterectomies are performed each year in the U.S. Most of which are done for the quick way out or for the paycheck.

To learn more on your options read the Fibroid article.
