According to FDA documents, HPV infections do not lead to cervical cancer. "Most infections by HPV are short-lived and not associated with cervical cancer," states an FDA news release dated March 31, 2003. According to another FDA document, the Gardasil vaccine has been found to increase the risk of developing precancerous lesions by more than 44 percent in young women already infected with the HP virus strains used in the vaccine.

So why are there ads in most women's and parental magazines stating that HPV causes cervical cancer and the Gardasil vaccine should be given not only to girls as young as nine years old, but also to boys? It's about money, not health.

Charlotte Haug, MD, PhD, stated her concerns about the Gardasil vaccine in an editorial in the Journal of American Medical Association. "Whether a risk is worth taking depends not only on the absolute risk, but on the relationship between potential risk and the potential benefit"Even if persistently infected with HPV, a woman most likely will not develop cancer if she is regularly screened."

Gardasil caused 32 deaths and nearly 12,500 serious injuries in the first three years on the market. Ashley Ryburn's life as a healthy, active teenager changed completely when she was vaccinated with Gardasil. She had to quit all sports activities and cannot even ride her bicycle around the small town where she lives. Ashley's video story can be seen at http://www.rockymountainnews.com/videos/detail/ashley-story/.

Physician Scott Ratner's daughter became seriously ill with a chronic immune disease after her first dose of Gardasil. Dr. Ratner told CBS News, "She would have been better off getting cervical cancer than the vaccine."

Merck, maker of Gardasil, continues to seduce states with money. Time Magazine reported that Merck has set aside an undisclosed amount of money specifically to lobby states for mandatory HPV vaccinations. In February 2007, Texas governor Rick Perry bypassed the state legislature and announced an executive order requiring all girls aged 12 and older to receive Gardasil vaccinations. In May 2007 the Texas legislature responded to public outcry and passed a bill that would not allow mandated vaccination.

How will the public hear the truth about HPV and Gardasil over the cacophony of Merck's marketing campaign? How many more children will die or be made seriously ill before this ineffective, dangerous vaccine is removed from the market? Cervical cancer is not what parents have to fear for their daughters. The vaccine is the health threat.
