I can't count how many times a week I tell gnu-atheistic-Humanists to stop the ridiculous mantra of "believing in science". Specially relevant when it comes to "believing in BigPharma". Even more true when the people parroting that shit know absolutely nothing about science, have no scientific training, and think that critical thinking should be left at the door as soon as BigPharma opens it's well funded mouth.
To "believe" in science is about as stupid and dangerous as believing in gods because the scientific industry is not controlled by a bunch of kind hearted honest transparent decent humans. No, a large swath of the scientific industry is populated by a bunch of greedy bastards (namely BigPharma) who'd push any crap onto us to make a buck.
Here's just another in an endlessly long list of problem products pushed onto populations by BigPharma as well as Humanists who just parrot the press releases of BigPharma. I can't count the number of discussions on various atheist-Humanist forums where Humanists come out and say that people who won't take vaccines are stupid idiots and ruining everything for everybody. Humanists are religious about their faith in industrial science, and this does nothing to advance critical thinking. The next time I hear a Humanist spout hateful nonsense about people who don't want to take vaccines I think I'm going to mentally slap'em
OK, pardon the rant... on with news that affects females...
NOTE: Before you read the article, here is an intro to this person Diane Harper.
Now on with the article:
Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher [note the many references to her articles in the Wikipedia HPV vaccine article] in the development of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, Gardasil™ and Cervarix™. She is now the latest in a long string of experts who are pressing the red alert button on the devastating consequences and irrelevancy of these vaccines. Dr. Harper made her surprising confession at the 4th International Converence on Vaccination which took place in Reston, Virginia. Her speech, which was originally intended to promote the benefits of the vaccines, took a 180-degree turn when she chose instead to clean her conscience about the deadly vaccines so she “could sleep at night”. The following is an excerpt from a story by Sarah Cain:
“Dr. Harper explained in her presentation that the cervical cancer risk in the U.S. is already extremely low, and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States. In fact, 70% of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90% in two years. Harper also mentioned the safety angle. All trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and above, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds. So far, 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil™ alone to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions. At the time of writing, 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines. The reported side effects include Guillian Barré Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently — sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation. Parents are usually not made aware of these risks. Dr. Harper, the vaccine developer, claimed that she was speaking out, so that she might finally be able to sleep at night. ’About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life,’ Harper says. ’Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.’”
Although these two vaccines are marketed as protection against cervical cancer, this claim is purely hypothetical. Studies have proven “there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless. In fact, there is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer. From the manufacturers own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about about the same as the chance of her being struck by a meteorite.”
