HPV Vaccine Should Be Avoided?
In June 2006, FDA approved a new vaccine - Gardasil
for human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a common sexually transmitted
disease that is passed through genital contact, usually by sexual
intercourse. There are more than 100 strains of HPV. Some forms
of the virus can cause genital warts. Other forms of the virus
can cause pre-malignant lesions (also known as abnormal cells)
on the cervix that can turn into cancer years later. However,
about 90% of the HPV infections are harmless and go away without
The vaccine only protects against 4 of the more than 100 different
strains of HPV, strains 6 & 11 that can cause genital warts
and strains 16 & 18 that can cause pre-malignant lesions.
The HPV vaccine contains virus-like particles of HPV types 6,
11, 16, and 18, 225mcg of Aluminum, sodium chloride, sodium
borate, L-histidine, and polysorbate 80. (Source: HPV

There has been constant pressure for girls to get the HPV
vaccine for a number of years. Many doctors and the federal
government encourage parents to have boys and girls vaccinated
for HPV as early as 11.
How Safe is The HPV vaccine?
By January 2011 (more than 4 years after the
vaccine was approved by FDA), the FDA received 20,000 reports
of injury and death following this vaccine. This vaccine has
caused thousands of adverse reactions including heart irregularities,
kidney failure, seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis,
speech problems, short-term memory loss, Guillain-Barré
syndrome and even death. The vaccine has poor efficacy against
“high-grade” lesions. The vaccine has never been
proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer. The vaccine
also has poor efficacy in sexually active females, and may increase
the risk of cervical cancer. (Source: HPV

A government watchdog group, Judicial Watch announced that
it filed a Feb. 14, 2013, Freedom of Information Act lawsuit
against the Department of Health and Human Services to obtain
the records about how many people have been harmed by the HPV
vaccine. The group is seeking records related to the Vaccine
Injury Compensation Program, or VICP, a program that compensates
patients who have been adversely affected by vaccines.
According to the Annals of Medicine: “At present there
are no significant data showing that either Gardasil or Cervarix
(GlaxoSmithKline) can prevent any type of cervical cancer since
the testing period employed was too short to evaluate long-term
benefits of HPV vaccination.”
“From the very beginning the federal government has attempted
to shield the public from the truth about Gardasil,” Judicial
Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Despite
safety concerns, the vaccine continues to be pushed for both
girls and boys. (Source: Feds

Countless young girls have been harmed by the HPV vaccine,
and we still do not know how the vaccine will affect their long-term
health, even if they do not experience any acute side effects.

Why HPV Vaccine Does Not Help To Prevent
The HPV vaccine was only designed to protect 4 strains of HPV
and some reports indicate that the vaccine can actually increase
your chance of getting HPV that causes cervical cancer. Another
concern is that the HPV vaccine can encourage sexual promiscuity.
It gives many girls and young women the false idea that they
can have sex and be protected from HPV. The best way to prevent
cervical cancer in future generations is to encourage all kids
and teenagers to not engage in any kind of sexual activity until
marriage. We would see a big drop in cervical cancer cases if
more young people waited until marriage to have sex and remained
The federal government and doctors should encourage teenagers
and young people to practice abstinence until marriage as a
way to decrease their chances of getting cervical cancer and
other STDs instead of the HPV vaccine.
Also, keep in mind that pap smears are actually often unnecessary
for virgin women who have never engaged in any type of sexual
activity (see Are Pap Smears Necessary For Virgin Women?
for more information).
Parents should not allow their children to be vaccinated for
HPV due to the risks. Young women and college students should
refuse to be vaccinated for HPV too. It is certainly not worth
having the vaccine since there are many serious complications
that could happen. Do not let your doctor pressure you into
having the HPV vaccine. Some doctors still claim that the HPV
vaccine is safe despite the risks. Women at high risk for contracting
HPV should have a Pap smear and HPV test.
