Garasil vaccine
As of June, 2013, 30,352 adverse reactions to HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix have been reported to VAERS, the U.S. vaccine adverse events reporting system. Adverse reactions include 10,557 ER visits, 6,032 who failed to recover, 952 disabled, 64 cases of cervical cancer and 140 deaths. Consider this the tip of the iceberg as only 1 to 10% of vaccine reactions and injuries are reported to the U.S. government data base. Canada has no comparable vaccine reaction and injury data base that is accessible to the public. 1,11

As noted by NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center):
"After Gardasil was licensed and three doses recommended for 11-12 year old girls and teenagers, there were thousands of reports of sudden collapse with unconsciousness within 24 hours, seizures, muscle pain and weakness, disabling fatigue, Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), facial paralysis, brain inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, blood clots, optic neuritis, multiple sclerosis, strokes, heart and other serious health problems, including death, following receipt of Gardasil vaccine." 2
In his August 2013 Holistic Child Health Newsletter, Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, MD reports that:
"Two of the known major ingredients in the HPV vaccine are aluminum and polysorbate-80 (also known as 'Tween 80'). Aluminum is a neurotoxin and a cellular toxin, and binds pretty tightly to polysorbate 80, Polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier and, as such, can enter any cell membrane because of its lipid moiety, regardless of the condition of the cell membranes." 4
Each 0.5 ml. vial of Gardasil vaccine contains 50 micrograms(mcg) of polysorbate 80, 225 mcg of aluminum hydrosyphosphate sulphate, 35 mcg of sodium borate and 0.78 mg of L-histidine along with 4 types of human papilloma virus-like particles as disclosed in page 21 of the vaccine product monograph. 5

"Pharmaceutical companies utilize polysorbate-80 in their drug manufacturing to help with the transmission of pharmaceuticals across the blood brain barrier, BBB, writes Dr. Palvesky. They understand how protective the BBB is against allowing blood contents to enter the brain, and have found a way to bypass the BBB to enhance drug entry into the brain by attaching the drugs to nano-particles of polysorbate-80. 4,6,7
"With aluminum and polysorbate-80 tightly bound in the HPV vaccine, and able to pass freely into the brain across the BBB, regardless of the state of health of the BBB, this can explain some of the fainting, seizures, and neurological sequelae that have been reported in teenage girls after they have received the HPV vaccine." 4
Canadian neuroscientists Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD and Chris Shaw have published a number of papers in which they raise concerns about the health risks posed by HPV vaccines. They worry that the vaccine may trigger fatal autoimmune or neurological events in some cases. "The rationale behind current worldwide human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination programs starts from two basic premises, 1) that HPV vaccines will prevent cervical cancers and save lives and, 2) have no risk of serious side effects." They note that,
"Careful analysis of HPV vaccine pre- and post-licensure data shows however that these premises are at odds with factual evidence and are largely derived from significant misinterpretation of available data."
Compared to all other vaccines in the U.S. vaccination schedule, Gardasil alone is associated with 61% of all serious adverse reactions (including 63.8% of all deaths and 81.2% cases of permanent disability) in females younger than 30 years of age. 3 Since the same HPV vaccines are used in Canada, we can assume the rate of reactions and injuries is comparable. 3

Death Following Gardasil Vaccine

Drs. Chris Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic's recent paper on the deaths of two young women following Gardasil vaccine found evidence of "an autoimmune vasculitis potentially triggered by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of cerebral blood vessels in all examined brain samples." Both young women were under age twenty and suffered cerebral vasculitis-type symptoms following vaccination. 7

Symptoms in one woman included unexplained fatigue, muscle weakness, tachycardia, chest pain, tingling in extremities, irritability, mental confusion and periods of amnesia (memory lapses), while the other suffered severe migraines, speech problems, dizziness, weakness, inability to walk, depressed consciousness, confusion, amnesia and vomiting 14 days after receiving her first Gardasi injection. 7

Using a new immunohistochemical (IHC) protocol they developed, Shaw and Tomljenovic discovered the presence of HPV-16-L1 particles within the blood vessels of the brain (cerebral vasculature) with some of these particles adhering to the blood vessel walls. Theoretically, these antigens should not have crossed the blood brain barrier (BBB) and represent the equivalent of a Gardasil fingerprint.7, 8

The authors conclude,
"Our study suggests that HPV vaccines containing HPV-16L1 antigens pose an inherent risk for triggering potentially fatal autoimmune vasculopathies. Cerebral vasculitis is a serious disease which typically results in fatal outcomes when undiagnosed and left untreated. 8
"The fact that many of the symptoms reported to vaccine safety surveillance databases following HPV vaccination are indicative of cerebral vasculitis, but are unrecognized as such (i.e., intense persistent migraines, syncope, seizures, tremors and tingling, myalgia, locomotor abnormalities, psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits), is a serious concern in light of the present findings. It thus appears that in some cases vaccination may be the triggering factor of fatal autoimmune/neurological events. Physicians should be aware of this association." 8
Continuing in his August 2013 newsletter, Dr. Palevsky writes,
"The polysorbate-80 has free reign to pass through the cell membranes of any of the cells in the body, not just in the brain, and can take with it anything that is fat soluble in the vaccines, or anything in the blood that is fat soluble that can attach itself to the polysorbate-80 and travel along through the cell membranes into the cells, including HPV contaminants. In 2011, a scientist in Connecticut named Dr. Sin Hang Lee at Milford Hospital assayed 13 HPV vaccines from around the world and found that each one of the vaccines contained human papilloma virus contaminants." 4,9,10
"Vaccine manufacturers of the HPV vaccine had previously stated in their package inserts that the vaccine was free of any human papilloma virus particles. This, however, was not the case when the vaccines were assayed. And, the vaccine manufacturers had coincidentally removed this statement from the package inserts around the same time the assays were completed. Many have tried to downplay and minimize any significance that the presence of foreign HPV viral DNA could have on the health of those who are vaccinated with any of the HPV vaccines. 4"

"But, downplaying the role, without science to back up its believed inconsequential effects once the DNA is injected into the body, doesn't make its role inconsequential. It just makes its role unknown. Until the science is done to evaluate the effects of injecting foreign HPV viral DNA on the immune and nervous systems of those who receive it, there is as much of a possible consequential outcome, as there is an inconsequential one. 4 "

"If the HPV viral DNA becomes bound to the polysorbate-80 and aluminum, and this moiety enters the cells of the body, we have no idea how, or to what extent, this exposure can affect cellular and, more specifically, DNA function. No telling where this moiety lands in the body, and whether or not on a micro- or macro-molecular level, it imparts any damage to the life and function of the cells it enters." 4
Is polysorbate-80 used in vaccines to purposely cause harm?

Dr. Palevsky writes,
"One can question why polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines if it serves to potentially transport vaccine materials across the blood-brain-barrier. After all, what vaccine materials need to enter the brain? The obvious answer is, none. I've heard people ask if the polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines intentionally, used as part of a medical experiment on the human race, like we heard about during World War II. 4

"One in 6 children has some form of neuro-developmental disability, and adult onset neuro-degenerative diseases are on the rise, so clearly, something very wrong is happening to the human brain. It's a logical question to ask, therefore, is the polysorbate-80 used in vaccines to purposely cause harm rather than help the greater good, as part of a grand scheme to weaken and debilitate the human race? 4

"But, when people ask this question, the possibility of this being true is so inconceivable to most, and such a preposterous, cynical distortion of what people can accept as true because, "they would never do that," and "how dare anyone question the sanctity of vaccines," that the ones asking this question are often accused of being conspiracy theorists, who are then ostracized and discounted for their extremism. The discussion about this issue, therefore, is so easily and conveniently, dismissed. The scientific basis for asking this question, however, makes complete sense. 4

"Of course, when something so blatantly obvious, and so blatantly wrong is exposed, it's much easier for the naysayers to attack the people asking the question, and deflect from the science, rather than face the real issue at hand. It has been reported that polysorbate-80 is in the vaccines to help disperse vaccine material from the injection site so it travels all over the body. They just don't tell you that one of the possible places for vaccine materials attached to polysorbate-80 to be dispersed to, is the brain, and the inner workings of just about any cell of the body." 4
In conclusion Dr. Palevsky writes:
"But, no study has been designed to test whether the polysorbate-80 is, in part, acting to debilitate the central nervous system, and cellular functions all over the body. We just keep on adding more vaccines to the schedule that contain polysorbate-80, and we keep on seeing increasing numbers of children and adults with debilitating, chronic, inflammatory conditions in every part of their bodies........" 4
