From the Examiner:
Warning, Gardasil may cause increased risk of cervical cancer
June 30, 10:34 Norma Erickson
Buyer beware: Gardasil, given under the wrong conditions, may increase the risk of cervical cancer.
Would you consent to giving your child a vaccine that caused an increased risk of cancer? That may be exactly what you are doing when you consent to Gardasil.
According to Information the manufacturer of this vaccine presented to the FDA prior to approval, if a person has already been exposed to HPV 16 or 18 prior to injection Gardasil increases the risk of precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6%. (See VRBPAC Background document, bottom of page 13) This documentation was presented on the 18th of May 2006.
That statement bears repeating, if you have been exposed to HPV 16 or 18 prior to injection and take the vaccine, you increase your risk of precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6%.
Is this information advertised? No! This information was actually presented to the FDA by Merck. It came from their own safety trials. The FDA did not respond by recommending screening for HPV prior to vaccination. The FDA did not even demand a warning be included in the package insert....
