(NaturalNews) Texas Gov. Rick Perry's failed plot to force Merck & Co.'s Gardasil vaccine on millions of young girls in the Lone Star State has sparked renewed interest among Americans, as to what all the controversy is about concerning the vaccine (http://www.naturalnews.com/033571_Rick_Perry...).
The mainstream media's response to the incident has included a lot of whitewashing, as well as a full-scale damage control operation to reaffirm the supposed safety of Gardasil, which is alleged by Merck to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) and some forms of cervical cancer. But the cat is out of the bag as thousands of curious Americans, many for the first time, are learning about the very real dangers associated with the Gardasil vaccine.
Not long after the vaccine was approved back in 2006, Gardasil's deadly side effects quickly began to emerge. Reports came in about young girls experiencing seizures and developing chronic neurological problems, as well as other conditions, immediately after receiving one or more of the three-part Gardasil vaccination schedule.
And according to Dr. Sherri Tenpenny from NewsWithView.com, there were already more than 1,200 adverse events from the vaccine logged in the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) less than a year after its release (http://www.newswithviews.com/Tenpenny/sherri...).
And because as little as one percent of adverse events are even reported in VAERS, Dr. Tenpenny says that as many as 126,000 instances of "acute health problems" may have resulted from young girls getting their Gardasil shots.
A report was put together by a group of mothers whose daughters died or became seriously injured after receiving either Gardasil or Cervarix. Cervarix is another, but less popular, HPV vaccine produced by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
Major adverse events caused by the shots include the development of autoimmune disorders, paralysis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, seizures, migraine headaches, blindness, hearing loss, memory loss, and death (http://truthaboutgardasil.org/wp-content/the...).
So far in 2011 alone, there have been nearly 1,500 adverse events reported in association with Gardasil or Cervarix -- and in 2010, there were more than 2,500 adverse events reported in association with the two vaccines (http://vaers.hhs.gov/data/data).
To date, there have been more than 21,000 reported cases of girls being adversely injured by Gardasil or Cervarix, more than 3,100 serious injury reports, and more than 100 reported deaths (http://www.naturalnews.com/031502_Gardasil_d...).
Based on this information, you can clearly see why Gov. Perry's 2007 executive order, and his continued defense of it, represents a significant threat to public health. If Gov. Perry's executive order would have been preserved and upheld by the Texas state legislature, thousands of additional girls in Texas may have been seriously injured or killed as a result.
