The Japanese government has officially stopped recommending the Human Papillomavirus vaccines and has begun warning its citizens against taking the shot.
Standard Digital reports:
In effect, the Japanese Ministry of Health is saying quite categorically that it has no faith in Gardasil and Cervarix… While the vaccines will remain freely available in the country, Japanese medical institutions are now required by law to inform young girls or their parents that the government does not recommend the vaccines any longer because of their associated adverse effects. [emphasis added]
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two HPV vaccines: Merck’s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline’s Cervarix. The two vaccines raked in over $2 billion in profits just last year.
Back in February, Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in regard to the HPV vaccine and the government’s National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
When the information was finally received, it revealed that of 200 claims filed, the U.S. government has paid out nearly $6 million in damages to 49 HPV vaccine victims through VICP — and more than half the claims are still awaiting evaluation.
As I reported before, reading through official HPV vaccine adverse claims documents is like reading a novel called Every Parent’s Worst Nightmare. HPV vaccine side effects reported so far include a whole barrage of adverse reactions such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, seizures, severe pain, fatigue syndrome, tremors, infertility, spontaneous miscarriage and even death.
To date, at least 47 girls and women have died after taking HPV vaccines. The shot has also been linked to full-blown cervical cancer and outbreaks of the very genital warts it is supposed to help protect from in the first place.
In fact, the number of adverse HPV vaccine reactions reported — nearly 10,000 to date — are close to surpassing the 12,200 women that the National Cancer Institute estimates will even get diagnosed with cervical cancer in the U.S. in a year.
Evaluations of these vaccines have shown that studies completed during the drug approval process lacked significant data to even really demonstrate their effectiveness because the trials were too short. A 2011 Annals of Medicine review found, “The efficacy of HPV vaccines in preventing cervical cancer has not been demonstrated, while vaccine risks remain to be fully evaluated.”
Worse, reports have surfaced that Dr. Diane Harper, a lead Merck researcher-developer, openly admitted the vaccine itself is basically pointless at a 2009 International Public Conference on Vaccination. According to Steven Mosher’s Population Research Institute:
“Indeed, [Dr. Diane Harper, the leading international developer of the HPV vaccines] surprised her audience by stating that the incidence of cervical cancer in the U.S. is so low that ‘if we get the vaccine and continue PAP screening, we will not lower the rate of cervical cancer in the U.S.’”
Dr. Harper later said she did it so she could “sleep at night“.
HPV Vaccines: a Textbook Case of Government Corruption at Its Finest
Dr. Julie Gerberding, former U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director from 2002 to 2009, directly helped pave the way for Merck’s Gardasil vaccine with a 2004 report to Congress on preventing HPV. After she left the CDC in 2009, Dr. Gerberding walked right through the revolving door between our government and mega corporations to take a job as President of Merck’s Vaccine Division.
See how that worked?
Add that fact to a recent Global Burden and Disease study which found that, out of 187 countries assessed, Japanese people had the longest life expectancy rates in the world. Even though the U.S. spends $2.7 trillion on healthcare annually, our life expectancy rates were a dismal 29th for males and 33rd for females.
Kinda answers that lingering question about why the Japanese government would make common sense decisions based on evidence and stop allowing the administration of an obviously dangerous vaccine without warning, while stateside our FDA is still dutifully telling Americans not to worry, go ahead and take the shot — it is “safe and effective”.
