(NaturalNews) Every time a new scientific study is published with regards to a vaccine or a dietary supplement, the mainstream media is quick to praise the former and denounce the latter without ever actually reading the study in question, let alone critically analyzing it to get an honest grasp of its true implications. One prominent example of this is the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil, which mainstream media outlets have repeatedly touted as safe and effective using mounds of fraudulent, misinterpreted, and sometimes never-even-looked-at "safety" data.
Recently, a surveillance study evaluating the potential autoimmune side effects of Gardasil was used by the mainstream media as "evidence" that the vaccine is supposedly not linked to such conditions, and is thus safe, even though the study did not actually come to this conclusion. As reported by Dr. Chandler Marrs, Ph.D., from HormonesMatter.com, the study itself was poorly conducted, it contains obvious statistical skewing, it did not include a matched case control group, and it truly did not come to any meaningful conclusions about Gardasil's safety.
But this did not stop the mainstream media from running wildly deceptive headlines like "No increase in autoimmune conditions from use of HPV vaccine" and "HPV vaccine unlikely triggered autoimmune disease," which were designed to trick the public into thinking that "science" somehow supports the safety of Gardasil. The fact that dishonest researchers were willing to craft such a specious study and pass it off as valid suggests that there truly are many potential dangers associated with Gardasil that the medical establishment is trying to hide from public view.
"By imputing the control group, [the researchers] guaranteed that they would not find differences between the unvaccinated and vaccinated group," writes Dr. Marrs about one of the major flaws with this particular study. "Poking through the statistical shenanigans, if we look only at the raw numbers from the abridged case pool, there appeared to be a high rate of Hashimoto's, rheumatoid and other autoimmune conditions" caused by Gardasil, he adds.
So much for Gardasil not being linked to autoimmune disease. As usual, all the mainstream media babbling about the alleged safety of Gardasil as supposedly illustrated by this latest study was erroneous -- the study actually suggests that Gardasil is unsafe and a potential cause of autoimmune disease!

As you probably already well know, the mainstream media is notorious for constantly skewing study findings and spreading misinformation about vaccines and dietary supplements. Another recent example of this is the omega-3 fatty acid study, which dinosaur media hacks have been using to claim that fish oil causes cancer. Not only is this suggestion a gross misinterpretation of what the study actually found, but like with the Gardasil study, no honest inquiry was ever conducted to see whether the study was even valid -- honest journalists later found it to be a fraud.
What we really need more of today is honest, independent scientific research, an endeavor that HormonesMatter.com is currently trying to undertake specifically for Gardasil and its counterpart, Cervarix. HormonesMatter.com is right now conducting an HPV vaccine survey that it hopes will eventually shed light on the truth about these controversial vaccines, and your help is needed to bring this study to fruition.
"There is a lack of data about who is at risk for adverse events and whether certain pre-existing conditions increase one's risk for an adverse event," explains HormonesMatter.com. "There is also a lack of data about the long term health effects of these vaccines. The purpose of this survey is to fill that data void; to learn more about the risks for and nature of adverse events associated with each of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix."
