Gardisil Adverse Reactions

Before you Vaccinate- Know the risks

Gardisil adverse reactions. One of the principle architects of the vaccine has just come out saying it was mistake.

Dr.Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines and director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the University of Missouri, told an audience of medical professionals on October 25, 2009.

And remember, this is coming from a developer of the Gardasil vaccine! She says, "Gardasil is largely unnecessary, and that it has never been fully tested on females under the age of 15." This, despite strong marketing efforts to make the drug mandatory for girls, and product literature and advertising that state the product can be used by girls as young as age 9.

Dr. Harper’s remarks were made to an audience at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination. During this talk, she said 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year, and that within two years that number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent, she said, only half will develop into cervical cancer, resulting in “little need for the vaccine.” She also said incidences of cervical cancer are steadily decreasing with conventional treatments and preventative measures.


Here is some more data on it:

Vaccination History

Mind boggling!

I received this in an email from a dental practice.

“FYI: Most patients we see have been fed lies about nutrition and are skeptical to try new things. They will opt for taste and convenience over healthy. They tend to listen to doctors and drugs rather than holistic practitioners and wholesome foods. This has been our experience with 8 out of 10 patients we see... ...and these are patients coming to a holistic dentist! Interesting facts, huh?!”

The drug company propaganda machine is rolling along at full speed.

Homeopathy Under Attack In Oz

Kristen Morrison says, “This breakthrough report affirmed that homeopathic treatment is both effective and cost-effective and that homeopathic treatment should be reimbursed by Switzerland’s national health insurance program. We are so in the dark ages in our country!”

Scientists Seek EPA Action on Monsanto Crop Failure

Twenty-two leading scientists, experts in pest resistance, have written an urgent letter to the EPA asking the agency to warn farmers about the hazards of Monsanto’s genetically engineered Bt corn, planted on millions of acres across the U.S. and Canada.

The corn has been gene-spliced with bacterial DNA that produces Bt insecticide in every cell of the plant. Monsanto’s misleading promise was that farmers could plant Bt crops and not have to spray pesticides, but predictably, corn rootworms have begun to develop resistance. Scientists warn of massive yield loss and surging corn costs if the EPA doesn’t act quickly to drastically reduce Bt crops’ acreage and force Monsanto to make non-GMO varieties of its high-yielding hybrid corn available to farmers.

Now’s our chance to ask the EPA to ban Bt crops! Let’s urge the EPA to look at the danger to human health, as well as farming. Monsanto’s insecticide-producing bacterial DNA survives digestion and is now found in the blood of more than 80% of North American women - and their fetuses! Scientists say the exposure comes from a typical (non-organic) diet, primarily through the consumption of animals fed GMO crops. The chronic health impacts of exposure to GMO Bt genes is unknown, but Monsanto’s own study of rats fed Bt crops showed liver and kidney damage.

Outlaw Psychiatry

Yesterday I finished listening to a lecture series from 1959.

I now know why psychiatrists can advocate such destructive actions as electric shock, cutting up people’s brains, sterilisation and chemical straight jacketing. This is what they are actually doing or advocating doing to minors in WA right now.

They cannot do anything to genuinely help a person so that makes it OK to do ANYTHING to a person - even kill them.

Another piece of the jigsaw puzzle of life falls into place.

The sooner psychiatry is outlawed the better.

The Proposed WA Mental Health Bill

A mate of mine wrote, “THIS BILL IS PURE LOGIC - A 12 year old, considered to be in such rough shape that he or she is a candidate for seizure-producing electric shock treatment, or to have part of their brain cut away or sterilisation, is, at the same time, judged to be capable enough and aware enough and with it enough that they can veto their parents non-consent of such treatment and, by law, can give the nod to go ahead against their parents wishes. The guys who thought this up are candidates for such treatment themselves and should by law undergo it themselves first so they can explain first hand to the kids just how safe it is to have parts of your brain cut out and be connected up to mains electricity.”

That One Dad, He Called Me A Gecko

Where To Go For Lunch?

A group of girlfriends, all age 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the waiters there were handsome, with tight trousers and nice bottoms.

Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the food was good and the wine selection was excellent.

Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they could dine in peace and quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean.

Ten years later, at age 70, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and had a lift.

Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they had never been there before.

Block the US Federal Govt. Tyranny!

In response to a post I made yesterday Guy Zino commented this. I thought this vitally important data was well worth passing on. This gives you an avenue by which to resist the tyranny from DC!

“The States will have to step up to resist an oppressive federal government. That is how the Constitution is set up as means to protect our freedoms. The Federal government is subordinate to the States. This is something that people don’t get. The Federal Government is SUBORDINATE TO THE STATES! The Federal government is simply a compact between the States to create a cooperative union for the States’ mutual benefit. The Federal government is not even a party to the agreement called the Constitution. It is a creation of the States. This is a basic concept very few people know much less even consider. I did not even realize this until very recently.”

So, to all my US buddies, make your voice heard to your state member and get some sanity back into government! Here is a resource for you to do that:

My America

I Will Not Sit Back And Watch My America Be Destroyed!

I looked at the “my” America and thought to not pass this on. Then I thought of my US mates\buddies and didn’t want them to miss out. Then I thought, It IS “my” America that sets the cultural and liberty pace of the world, I need to take responsibility for keeping it on the straight and narrow too. Or, to be more accurate, getting it BACK on the straight and narrow path of ethical high ground that her founding fathers charted for her.

Want Students to Succeed? Let Them Fail

How many times have you heard the mantra “failure is not an option”? The need to succeed whatever the cost permeates our society, and schools are no exception. But new research in the American Psychological Association’s Journal of Experimental Psychology: General concludes kids might perform better in school if teachers and parents sent the message that failing is a normal part of learning.

10 Lessons From Einstein


1. Follow Your Curiosity “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

2. Perseverance is Priceless “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

3. Focus on the Present “Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”

4. The Imagination is Powerful ”Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

5. Make Mistakes “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

6. Live in the Moment “I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”

7. Create Value “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

8. Don’t be repetitive “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

9. Knowledge Comes From Experience “Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

I disagree with his phraseology in number 9 and I think that explains why he ignored or invalidated the research of other scientists into quantum physics and wasted so much of his life striving unsuccessfully to find “the answer to everything”.

You cannot live long enough to experience as much as you need to know. To accomplish your objectives you have to learn from the experience of others.

Sure, maintain your own personal integrity and be careful to observe what you observe and do not take another person’s opinion as senior to your own observation, but also do not ignore their experience just becasue it is outside your own zone of experience.

The Man Who Likes His Fellows

I learned an interesting thing this week. A man who likes his fellows will be more competent than one who doesn’t.

With his viewpoint that “Kissinger referred pointedly to military men as dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” it sort of puts Kissinger into a box, doesn’t it? Explains well his record of failures.
