(NaturalNews) There is still a whole lot of money to be made from pushing human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines on young people around the world. But in order to accomplish this, the market for the vaccines, which include Merck & Co.'s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix, must be expanded to include males as well as females, which is what is currently taking place in Canada.CBC News
reports that Canada's National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has now recommended that HPV vaccines be administered to boys between the ages of nine and 26. The announcement comes just months after a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee also recommended that boys get jabbed with the HPV vaccine, despite the fact that nearly 25,000 children have had serious adverse events as a result of the vaccine, and more than 100 have died (http://sanevax.org/
Since Canada has a universal healthcare system, provinces and territories that adopt the new recommendations will be required to fund the vaccines, which have never been proven safe or effective in girls, let alone boys. Even the NACI report itself admits that "there are no studies that directly demonstrate that HPV vaccination of males will result in less sexual transmission of vaccine-related HPV types from males to females in reduced incidence of cervical cancer" (http://www.lifesitenews.com
Even so, vaccinating boys against HPV somehow still makes sense to Dr. Franziska Baltzer, a spokesman from the Canadian Association of Adolescent Health and head of adolescent medicine at Montreal Children's Hospital, who believes that boys as young as nine "contribute to the spread of HPV
," a virus that many experts still say causes cervical cancer.
Boys do not have a cervix, of course, which is why drug companies have had to convince government health authorities that boys are carriers of HPV. But keep in mind that HPV has never even been proven to be a cause of cervical cancer, which means vaccinating anyone against HPV is completely pointless in the first place (http://www.naturalnews.com
Neither Gardasil nor Cervarix has ever been proven to prevent HPV, either. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) actually admitted in reports back in 2003 that HPV is not scientifically linked to causing cervical cancer. In fact, the Gardasil vaccine was found to be responsible for actually causing a nearly 50 percent increase in precancerous lesions in women (http://www.naturalnews.com/022404.html
