Will Merck's Gardasil HPV Vaccine be its Next Vioxx?

Injuring Young Girls and Women as a Profit Stream



Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null

Progressive Radio Network, May 26, 2010



Do you find something seriously wrong with this scenario?



Reports of faulty gas pedals, obstructive floor carpets and failing breaks
in Toyota and Lexus vehicles generated an uproar across major media
networks. For the 4 year period starting in 2006, the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had reported 5 deaths, 17 injuries and
13 crashes, and an additional 29 deaths between 2000 and 2005. There was no
hesitation among the networks and federal officials to demonize Toyota for
knowingly risk the lives of people solely to empty its dealership lots. Even
Congress quickly called for a Congressional investigation, and Toyota took
upon itself the responsibility to recall over 8 million vehicles.



During the same 4 year period while NHTSA was collecting crash data on
Toyota's lemons, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)'s Vaccine Adverse
Events Reporting System (VAERS) database was gathering casualty data
following vaccinations with Merck's human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine,
Gardasil. And it was clear that Merck was far ahead and winning its race
against Toyota for the Lemon of the Decade Award. Since Gardasil's launch
in 2006, the vaccine has been responsible for 66 deaths and over 17,700
medical injuries of young girls, as young as 11 years old. Six percent of
reported events, or 1,100 girls, were serious enough to require emergency
hospitalization.



Unfortunately, vaccine injuries are not reported immediately and thoroughly
as automobile accidents and deaths. There are no vaccine police rushing to
the scene of vaccine accidents to investigate the incidents and to record
injuries and fatalities accurately. Consequently, only a fraction of vaccine
adverse events are reported by pediatricians, physicians, medical clinics
and hospitals, and make their way eventually into the VAERS database. Few
parents even know such a reporting system exists.



During a Progressive Radio Network interview with Cindy Bevington, who has
investigated and reported about Gardasil extensively, she note on the
hundreds and hundreds of emails she receives from girls, mothers and doctors
around the US and other countries complaining about the HPV vaccines. Often
she receives parent requests "begging" for help because their pediatricians
and physicians refuse to report their daughters' adverse events as vaccine
related.



According to the CDC's own admission, only 10 percent of adverse events get
listed on VAERS. This very conservative figure has been refuted by
independent analyses; actual records can be as low as 1 percent of all
actual negative reactions for any given vaccine. It is therefore realistic
to suspect that Gardasil is associated with between 177,000 and 1.7 million
adverse effects among vaccinated American girls and young women.



According to the website Medalerts.org, a young woman vaccinated with
Gardasil is ten times more likely to file a VAERS report compared to an
influenza vaccination. HPV vaccines now account for 20 percent of all
vaccine side effects aside from the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. America's
daughters are twice as likely to have an emergency room visit. They are four
times more likely to have a death sentence, five times more likely to
receive a report of "did not recover," and seven times more likely be
pronounced "disabled."



Besides the 66 deaths, Gardasil's serious side effects now include Guilliane
Barre syndrome, lupus, seizures, anaphylactic shock, chronic fatigue,
paralysis, blood clots, brain inflammation, blurred vision and blindness,
convulsions, demyelinating encephalomyelitis, multiple sclerosis,
pancreatitis and various digestive disorders. Last autumn a case of
amyltrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease, was
reported. And a recent 2010 issue of the Journal of Child Neurology
investigated the case of a 16-year old girl going blind following
vaccination, a secondary symptom to multiple sclerosis. In her January 2010
article on Vactruth.com, "Website Documents Over 300 Gardasil Horror
Stories," Christina England, a journalist monitoring the politics and
science of the HPV vaccines, relates the case of an employee at a large
hospital who commented on the 1,000 plus girls who are manifesting psychotic
symptoms for no apparent reason other than being vaccinated with Gardasil.
Nevertheless, the federal health agencies remain mute and dumb, and the CDC
and the FDA continue to stand by their masters at Merck and preach their
faith in Gardasil as "safe and effective and the benefits outweigh the
risks."



One would expect that vaccine makers would undertake special precautionary
measures when conducting clinical trials for women who are undergoing
hormonal changes, such as premenstrual changes during puberity and during
various stages of pregnancy. The effects that Gardasil has on young girls
entering sexual maturity remain unknown. The principle investigator for
Gardasil's clinical trials, Dr. Diane Harper, has publicly stated that no
efficacy and safety trials for any of the HPV vaccines were conducted on
girls under the age of 15 years. Neither were trials conducted to determine
Gardasil's safety on pregnant women.



Dr. Suzanne Garland at the Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne published a
study in 2009 issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology showing a "higher rate of
congenital abnormalities in infants were noted in pregnant women who
received the vaccine." A second study, according to Christina England, found
that there were slightly higher fetal deaths and rare cases of central
nervous system malformations and neural tube defects in vaccinated pregnant
women. Yet these kinds of studies only convince us of the seriously flawed
and limited clinical trials conducted by Merck, and further confirms growing
criticisms of the systemic failure in the FDA's approval process because of
the millions of dollars the agency receives from the pharmaceutical cartel
to expedite vaccine and drug launches and to require only the minimal of
efficacy and safety information for approval.



Fortunately, the seriousness of HPV vaccination is becoming more apparent,
via the efforts of the National Vaccine Information Center, NaturalNews.com,
Mercoloa.com and the Progressive Radio Network, and concerns are being
raised within the practicing medical community and among parents. For
example, the otherwise pro-Big Pharma Journal of the American Medical
Association (JAMA) printed an article in 2009 stating that "the rate of
serious adverse events [of Gardasil] is greater than the incidence rate of
cervical cancer." Given the high prestige of JAMA, this alone should be a
sufficient warning to avoid HPV vaccines at any cost.



Once a vaccine is administered, the risk for potential damage cannot be
recalled. It is not like returning your Toyota to avoid the possibility of a
mechanical failure in the future. And the length of time a serious adverse
effect might occur from Gardasil remains unknown. Christina Tassell, a 21
year old National Honor Student died in her sleep a couple days after
receiving Gardasil. There was no way the vaccine could be returned to her
pediatric salesman after symptomatic complications began to surface.



Since Gardasil is administered in a series of three shots, adverse effects
may occur after the second or third vaccination, or even months afterwards.
One mother shared the condition of her 15-year old daughter who two months
after receiving her second vaccination began having seizures and complete
memory loss. The mom writes, "her other symptoms were hair loss, joint pain,
severe headaches, stomach pain and insomnia. When she did sleep, she would
have seizures for hours. We have taken her to numerous doctors but they have
no idea what is wrong with her. She continues to struggle on a day to day
basis and is on the 504 Disability Plan at school"



So where is the media in reporting on this Big Pharma-created medical
catastrophe? Where are the New York Times and Rupert Murdock's media
empire? Why aren't our health officials at the FDA, the CDC and Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius at the HHS taking precautionary measures, and why aren't
our elected officials on the Hill demanding a Congressional investigation
for a product threatening our daughter's lives and health that is greater
than handing the family's Toyota's car keys over to a teenager?



According to Cindy Bevington, after she investigated the reasons why the New
York Times and the Associated Press are failing to report on the medical
fraud that is so clearly evident with HPV vaccination, she found people with
the Associated Press married to persons at Medscape and WebMD, two of the
most popular medical and drug information resources funded by Merck and
GlaxoSmithKline. In addition, James Murdoch is on the Board of Directors of
GlaxoSmithKline, and Reuters' CEO sits on Merck's board. "So of course the
mainstream media aren't going to report it," Bevington remarked.



But what is worse and should instill greater outrage is that we are not
dealing with a pharmaceutical company with a relatively clean and innocent
record-if such a pharmaceutical entity actually exists-but we are facing
Merck. In the case of Toyota, there is reason to consider the automaker a
first time offender. Until the recent recall, Toyota had a near unblemished
reputation for manufacturing safe, reliable and popular vehicles for many
years.



Merck on the other hand has proven itself to be a notorious repeat offender.
One would expect that any drug maker steeped in a well-documented record of
criminality and fraud would immediately raise a red flag to federal health
officials when one of its products shows every indication of threatening the
health and lives of young American girls over the course of four years.
Usually when a crime is committed, repeat offenders are among the first to
be investigated.



There should be no hesitation in viewing Merck as the pharmaceutical
industrial complex's most dangerous serial killer. Vioxx alone accounted for
over 44,000 deaths and 120,000 serious medical injuries behind a trail of
deception and corporate cover-ups by withholding clinical information and
documents confirming Vioxx's adverse effects. The company has been charged
with intentionally hiding the liver-damaging effects of its cholesterol
drug, and intentionally withholding the release of clinical data that
revealed failures of another cholesterol product. It has dumped vaccine
waste and toxic chemicals in water supplies. In 2008, it paid out $650
million for over-billing Medicaid. An Australian civil suit has been filed
against the company for publishing fake medical journals; the Australasian
Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine and six others were simply phony
surrogates for Merck advertising. Finally, the drug giant was caught in a
huge scheme of scientific fraud when it was discovered that in-house writers
were secretly being used to compose so-called "independent" studies to
support their research in peer-reviewed medical journals.



However, we should never underestimate the depth of Merck's pockets and its
power and influence to persuade our federal regulators and elected officials
to comply with its financial bidding and lobbying demands. Clearly Merck is
a leader in the pharmaceutical cartel and a major force in the drug lobbying
industry, if not the entire American medical regime.



In the shadows of Merck's lawsuits and payouts, Merck has been in dire need
of a blockbuster drug. In order to position itself as the first to bring an
HPV vaccine to market, Merck commenced with a marketing campaign founded
upon misinformation and deception. It hired the world's largest advertising
master of deception, the PR monster firm Edelman, best known for its early
misinformation campaign for its client R.J. Reynolds on behalf of the
tobacco industry. Another major Edelman client is Pharmaceutical Research
and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the principal lobbying organization
for the pharmaceutical industry that helped leverage Obamacare to care more
for Big Pharma's revenues and shareholder interests than the health of the
nation's citizens. According to Bloomberg News, Merck spent over $840,000
to infiltrate the internet with information leading to the launch and
advertising of Gardasil to parents of daughters and young adult women.
Their intention was primarily twofold. First, it was necessary to educate
the American public about the dangers HPV as the single leading cause of
cervical cancer. And second, it was not in Merck's commercial interests to
offer the nation with factual statistical science that would guide parents
to make informed decisions on whether to have their daughters vaccinated or
not; rather it was a disinformation campaign, piggy-backing on previous
success campaigns related to STDs and HIV, to instill fear about a dreaded
HPV killer, disguised in the veneer of being a distinctly "sexually
transmitted" viral disease.



This is how the mother of Britanny Bell understood the ads about Gardsil and
how she was persuaded to relieve her fears by having her 12-year old
daughter vaccinated. Two months after receiving the vaccine, the former
cross country runner collapsed and now suffers paralysis in her legs. And
how did Merck respond to the growing number of incidences of paralysis in
vaccinated girls? One Merck spokesperson, responded to the media with
expected corporate sociopathic logic: since paralysis is not one of Gardasil's
adverse effects and it is not a listed complication on the package insert-so
the logic goes-the tragic events of paralysis could not be related to
Gardasil.



Since the FDA's standard for vaccine approval is so remarkably low, and
there is no financial reason or incentive for the vaccine industry to raise
the bar on conducting safety trials, serious vaccine adverse effects may
take a while, even years, to be officially investigated and confirmed. For
example, ever since Gardasil's 2006 launch upon the public, there have been
incidences of girls having seizures. At the time, seizures were not listed
as an adverse effect on the vaccine's product packaging and labeling. As
seizure rates increased, Merck eventually conceded to include it; but it was
not until mid-2009 that they did so, and during the previous three years
pediatricians were blind and unknowingly administering a vaccine related to
seizures.



In the wake of all the evidence confirming Gardasil's serious
life-threatening risks, how are we to understand Merck's adamant stance on
the health benefits of its vaccine, and the CDC's and FDA's commitment to
HPV vaccines being "safe and effective and the benefits outweigh the risks?"
How scientifically valid are these claims?



Merck's Gospel of Twisted Science



Cindy Bevington is an investigative reporter who won acclaim for bringing
attention to the whistleblowing facts behind the HPV vaccines after
interviewing Dr. Diana Harper. During Bevington's interview, Dr. Harper
stated that "giving [the HPV vaccines] to 11 year olds is a great big public
health experiment." Dr. Harper is highly qualified to know the truth. She
is a world expert in HPV virus, having studied over 100 strains of this
particular virus for 20 years. During her professorship at Dartmouth School
of Medicine, she was the principal investigator for the clinical trials
conducted for both Merck's Gardasil and a competitor vaccine, Cervarix,
manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, which was approved in the US in late 2009.
As the principal investigator, Dr. Harper was responsible for the research,
the recruiting of participants into the trials, and the review of the
clinical data for interpretation and publication.



First, in contradiction to what we are being told through Merck's
advertising campaign, Gardasil is not a cancer vaccine. There are no
clinical studies whatsoever proving that the vaccine prevents cancer at all.
In fact the National Institutes for Health states that the virus does not
lead directly to cervical cancer. What HPV does is influence cellular
abnormalities, which if not detected via a pap smear, could potentially turn
cancerous. However, according to Dr. Harper, 70 percent of HPV infections
resolve themselves in one year, and 90 percent resolve themselves in two
years without treatment. A recent study from New Zealand indicates that 95
percent of HPV infections naturally disappear due to the body's immune
system.



This is not to suggest HPV infections are rare; in fact, 80 percent of women
by the age 50 will have been infected with one of many strains. Gardasil
only protects against two of those strains-types 16 and 18-that account for
approximately two-thirds of cervical cancers. But HPV infections are not in
any way associated with the alarm and fear promulgated by Merck and our
federal and state health agencies. In fact, HPV infection is easily treated
and cervical cancer prevention has been statistically proven to be more
effective with regular pap smear exams instead of a vaccine. Dr. Anne
Szarewski at the Cancer Research UK conservatively told the British
newspaper The Telegraph that "a [pap smear] screening program is as
effective as a vaccination program;" equally important, nobody ever died or
was physically disabled from a pap smear, which is also far cheaper and more
cost-effective. Cindy Bevington has further reported that the vaccine makers'
own clinical studies show that unless a girl is tested negative for HPV at
the time of her vaccination, HPV vaccination can actually backfire and
increase her risk of a current infection progressing towards cervical
cancer.



During a special April 29 Progressive Radio Network broadcast about the
dangers and politics of Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix HPV vaccine,
Bevington outlined Merck's and the CDC's fabrication of a mythology to
instill fear in parents leading to mandatory vaccine enforcement. What is
not being told to the public, according to Bevington's research, "is that
anyone can get HPV. It is not a sexually transmitted disease even though
that's what the government tells you and that's the first thing on the CDC's
website. Professional journal articles and studies have shown documented
cases of babies testing positive for HPV as well as nuns who have never had
sex, as well as adolescent boys who happen to have it under their
fingernails. That is because HPV is transmitted via the skin. [Merck's and
the CDC's] vaccine campaigns simply highlight the easiest most common mode
of transmission, which is sexual."



The question of whether or not girls as young as 9 years old, which is the
minimum age approved by the FDA, should receive the vaccine is the most
disturbing. Dr. Harper has categorically stated that no efficacy or safety
trials have ever been conducted on girls under age 15. Furthermore, young
girls don't get cervical cancer. So is there any credible rationale for
vaccinated girls at such a young age other than increasing revenue streams?



In her lecture to the 2010 Vaccine Conference sponsored by the National
Vaccine Information Center, Dr. Harper lectured that the safety issues with
Gardasil are so serious that the rate of serious adverse events is greater
in the US than the incidence rate of cervical cancer. The incidence of
cervical cancer is so low, there is almost no supporting evidence to
conclude massive vaccination would lower the rate. In her analysis of Harper's
findings, Bevington states, "in the US to even touch cervical cancer rates
in this country, you would have to vaccinate every single 11 year old in the
US every year for 70 years to even drop [the cervical cancer rate] by one
percent."



Merck's Legislative Zombies



In 2007, almost every state had legislation filed to mandate the HPV
vaccine. It is rather extraordinary that so many states would have state
officials in unison calling for mandatory vaccination. Well, it might appear
rather odd and remarkable until the extent to which Merck's greedy tentacles
reach the fringe corners of state governments are fully recognized.



Women in Government is a nonprofit organization with a stated mission to
bring elected women state legislators and business leaders together. In
reality WIG is little more than a well-funded shill for the pharmaceutical
and energy industries. Over 50 percent of its corporate sponsors are Big
Pharm firms, including the two HPV vaccine manufacturers Merck and
GlaxoSmithKline. The organization also hosts a "Business Council", a six
member advisory group consulting state women legislators about critical
business issues. Three of the six Council members represent the
pharmaceutical industrial complex, and not surprisingly these include Merck's
Executive Director of Health Policy and GlaxoSmithKline's Director of Public
Policy. The third drug member is Digene Corporation's VP for Women's Health.
Who is Digene, a firm very few people have heard of? It is certainly not one
of the larger multi-national pharmaceutical firms among WIG's corporate
sponsors. It turns out Digene is the company that manufactures Gardasil.



The WIG's recent report, "A Roadmap for Success: The State of Cervical
Cancer Prevention in America 2010," which is being disseminated through
state health departments and women's health organizations, is nothing more
than a fidgeting and arrangement of data about the severity of cervical
cancer and rates of infections leading to the conclusion that vaccinating
all girls in the US will eradicate HPV infection.



Individual state initiatives to mandate the HPV vaccine can be traced back
to WIG. Texas governor Rick Perry is perhaps the most rabid among state
governors seeking mandatory vaccination. Perry's former chief of staff is
now a Merck lobbyist and Perry himself received Merck donations for his
reelection campaign. The former chief's mother, state representative Diana
White Delisis is WIG's state director. Now that the FDA approved Gardasil
for males from 9 to 26 years of age to protect against genital warts and
extremely rare penile and anal cancers, the Texas Medical Association voted
this month in favor of vaccinating young boys as young as 9 years of age.



Efforts are still being made in some states to mandate HPV vaccines. In New
York, Liz Kreuger, a leading voice in WIG, sponsored a State Senate bill for
mandatory vaccination. Fortunately that bill was placed on hold last
February.



WIG, however, is not the only state legislative organization that has been
won over by Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. The National Foundation for Women
Legislators and the National Conference of State Legislators each include
the two HPV vaccine makers as sponsoring corporate members. Along with WIG,
Merck's viral propaganda has infected almost every state health department.



In the June 2008 issue of the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics, three
scholars representing Johns Hopkins Institute of Bioethics, George
Washington School of Medicine, and Georgetown University's Law Center
determined that the evidence for the benefits of HPV vaccines on public
health provides no rationale whatsoever for making it mandatory. In fact,
such a mandate would be unethical and unconstitutional.



The consequences of Merck's actions and the actions of the corporation's
zombies in government health agencies and organizations, such as WIG, to
promulgate scientific falsehood has had an immense impact on seducing local
health facilities, hospital staffs, physicians and pediatricians. The
efforts to mandate unproven and questionable vaccines, such as Gardasil,
border on medical fascism. One story of a terrible casualty illustrates how
far Merck's marketing campaign has reached:



One mother reports on the website Medications.com a story of her 13-year old
daughter who was otherwise a physically active and healthy daughter until
she became partially paralyzed after receiving a Gardasil vaccination. Her
leg muscles shrank; her feet contorted as her muscular deterioration and
nerve damage increased. She was taken to the best medical facilities: Case
Western Hospital, the hospitals at Stanford University and the University of
California at San Francisco, John Hopkins and others. Then the mom shares
some information indicative of Merck's marketing success. "This has been a
very long, hard road and battle for my child. All because of vaccines. I was
not fully informed of possible deaths or serious side effects linked to
Gardasil. I did not give written consent; I was told this was practically
mandated in other states and would soon be mandatory for all school girls
age 11-12years old. I was told it was a good vaccine and led to believe I
would not have to worry about my daughter having cervical cancer some day."



Merck's aggressive lobbying of federal and state officials has paid off. In
2008, Gardasil became one of the top five selling vaccines allowing the drug
giant to cash in on $2.7 billion in sales. It is also the most expensive
vaccine on the market, costing almost $400 for the series of three
inoculations. Medical writer Judith Siers-Poisson has called it the
"financial equivalent of the Holy Grail for the pharmaceutical company."



It is highly unlikely that Merck will ever reconsider its marketing assault
to vaccinate the world's female population. Gardasil is already approved in
over 100 countries. It is much easier for Merck to do what it has done best
and has had the greatest success: cover-up their product's health risks and
dangers, withhold clinical information, continue to ferret federal health
officials and governments, and simply pay a fine if and when the company
gets caught for its criminal behavior. Then it is back to business as usual
to find another blockbuster drug to repeat their strategy all over again.



The Slow Backlash Against HPV Vaccination



Even if the US government and its health officials don't give a damn about
the physical health and well-being of its citizens, and particularly its
children, there are some countries that actually care population's health.
India commenced with a 2-year study to determine the efficacy of Merck's
Garadsil. Last April, the nation's health ministry suspended the study after
4 girls died and 120 serious complications were reported. To date, India
has no plans to launch the vaccine on its young girls and women.



In Bhutan, Merck promised free Gardasil for the tiny Himalayan nation's
female population. On May 14, the Bhutan Observer reported that the country's
Drug Regulatory Authority, after witnessing events in India, ordered a halt
to the vaccine until greater proof of safety can be produced. In Spain, the
government recalled Gardasil after two serious hospitalizations occurred
following inoculation. Yet in the US, we have thousands of Gardasil
casualties, and nobody in government is doing anything about it.


There is also some additional good news. Gardasil is now the mostly
commonly declined vaccine, by 56 percent over other vaccines, among parents.
And the professional journal Pediatrics has reported on a 2009 survey
showing that 1 out 8 parents have refused at least one Gardasil vaccination
recommended by their physicians or pediatricians. Therefore, we are
witnessing the success of educating people about the dangers of vaccination
and exposing the lies and fraud of the vaccine industry as the best chance
available to preserve the health of children and young people.



The bad news is Merck is relentless in its pursuit for profits and no longer
wants to limit Gardasil as a predatory revenue on girls and woman used as
crash test dummies. On the very day the FDA approved GlaxoSmithKline's HPV
vaccine Cervarix in the US, it also approved Gardasil for boys 9 to 26 years
old for genital warts. In May, Merck started marketing the vaccine towards
America's sons. Again, it is fueled under the deceptive advertizing that
genital warts are sexually transmitted. And the FDA simply continues mimics
Merck's information campaign. The FDA's director Dr. Karen Midthun in the
agency's press release states, "This vaccine is the first preventative
therapy against genital warts in boys and men ages 9 through 26, and, as a
result, fewer men will need to undergo treatment." The caveat of facts not
mentioned by the FDA is that boys infected with HPV rarely have symptoms,
and as with girls and women, infections disappear rapidly and naturally.



We are now faced with a paradoxical issue. Do we continue to create ever
more vaccines, always with the assumption that their safety and efficacy
have been proven and that there is no limit to how many of these vaccines
can be introduced into a human body. Or do we for the first time
investigate objectively by a high scientific gold standard, independent from
the vaccine manufacturers and the federal agencies, the long term safety and
efficacy of individual vaccines and and vaccines used in combination?
However, we must be realistic. We are witnessing the power of Wall Street
lobbyists acting for the banking industry who control almost every aspect of
the financial reform bill. Hence there will be no real structural reform
whatsoever. We saw the pharmaceutical and insurance industries' and their
lobbyists control the healthcare debate. Again, the final bill represents no
actual reform, virtually no preventative and regulatory measures to lessen
the incidence of diseases. We observed the energy cartels and their
lobbyists meeting secretly with Dick Cheney to assure the barons of coal,
oil and nuclear energies can act on their own behalf without government
interference. So the reality is that standing in the way to thwart any
legitimate effort to evaluate vaccine efficacy and safety is once again the
pharmaceutical industrial complex, their thousands of lobbyists, and the
industry's serfs serving as heads of our regulatory health and oversight
bodies.



The pharmaceutical financial game will continue, and injuries and deaths
will continue to rise.



What chance is there then for scientific truth and ethical responsibility to
protect citizens to emerge?

Injuring Young Girls and Women as a Profit Stream



Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null

Progressive Radio Network, May 26, 2010



Do you find something seriously wrong with this scenario?



Reports of faulty gas pedals, obstructive floor carpets and failing breaks
in Toyota and Lexus vehicles generated an uproar across major media
networks. For the 4 year period starting in 2006, the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had reported 5 deaths, 17 injuries and
13 crashes, and an additional 29 deaths between 2000 and 2005. There was no
hesitation among the networks and federal officials to demonize Toyota for
knowingly risk the lives of people solely to empty its dealership lots. Even
Congress quickly called for a Congressional investigation, and Toyota took
upon itself the responsibility to recall over 8 million vehicles.



During the same 4 year period while NHTSA was collecting crash data on
Toyota's lemons, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)'s Vaccine Adverse
Events Reporting System (VAERS) database was gathering casualty data
following vaccinations with Merck's human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine,
Gardasil.


Causility Data? Rather, it is reported events that happen to happen
around the time of the vaccine. Anyone can make a report. VAERS is a
notoriously poor source of information. Very few of the serious adverse
events have been shown to be from the vaccine.
