Flawed HPV Vaccine Safety Statement Triggers Butterfly Effect

Leaked E-Mails Reveal WHO Suppressed Info on Dangerous Particles in Vaccine

In chaos theory, there is a familiar metaphor known as the “butterfly effect” that suggests small changes in initial conditions (the flapping of a butterfly’s wings) can result in large differences in a later state (the pattern of a hurricane). In the area of vaccine safety, we’ve seen this play out time and again; most recently, when the misrepresentation of study data on minute components of HPV vaccines, presented before a small gathering in Tokyo in 2014, resulted in a worldwide safety proclamation upon which physicians are now basing their vaccination recommendations—and young girls are suffering.

In an open letter to the head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Sing Hang Lee, MD, the director of the Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory in Milford, Connecticut, claims members of the WHO’s Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS) deliberately manipulated scientific data relating to the safety of HPV vaccines Gardasil® and Cervarix®.

The letter states that the e-mails, obtained via a Freedom of Information request, clearly demonstrate members of the GAVCS, the CDC and the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare knew before the February 26, 2014 Tokyo public hearing that one of their own experts showed scientific evidence that HPV vaccination does increase cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF), particularly at the injection site compared to other vaccines. This increase can be attributed to HPV L1 gene DNA fragments, the viral DNA fragments, in the HPV vaccines that bind to aluminum adjuvants. This mechanism explains why serious adverse reactions occur more often in people injected with HPV vaccines than other vaccines, and why certain predisposed individuals may suffer sudden unexplained deaths as a result.

Yet, the GAVCS chose to suppress this information at the public hearing in Tokyo and in a subsequent CDC Technical Report upon which they based their statement of safety.

One of the ways this subterfuge was conducted was by misquoting the authors of two important papers, one based on a study funded by CMSRI: “Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental?” by Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher A. Shaw, published in Pharmaceutical Reg Affairs, 2012.

The other paper was a case report by Sing Han Lee, “Detection of Human Papillomavirus L1 Gene DNA Fragments in Postmortem Blood and Spleen after Gardasil Vaccination,”published in Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology, 2012.

In a comprehensive article by Norma Erickson of SaneVax, Inc., that included copies of the leaked e-mails, Dr. Lee illustrates how the differences between and the effects of HPV L1 virus like particles (VLPs) and HPV L1 gene DNA fragments were intentionally confused by Chairman Dr. Robert Pless in order to mislead readers and policy makers who were not experts in the area.

One of these was Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris of New Zealand, from whom Pless solicited “expert” support, despite her own admission (“I do not know if I am an expert on this…”); her lack of peer-reviewed published studies (she had only written a social media blog on HPV vaccines); and comments that revealed she did not understand the fundamental nature of HPV L1 VLP as a protein.

In one of her e-mail exchanges with Pless, Petousis-Harrison wrote,

Dear Rob, Oh dear! I am so saddened to hear how extensive the impact of the Lee, Shaw and Tomljenovic’s activities has become. I will certainly do anything I can to assist.

The appalling and lengthy list of contradictions, obfuscations and misrepresentations by Pless, Petousis-Harrison and others appears in detail in the SaneVax article, along with the call by Dr. Lee to hold accountable “any who blindly dismiss the potential toxicity of the newly created HPV L1 gene DNA/AAHS compound in order to continue to promote HPV vaccines.”

We fervently agree.  When it comes to the health and lives of our children, we must insist that every “flap of a butterfly’s wings” be honestly and rigorously studied if we are to turn back the gathering storm of injury and illness that is already wreaking devastation on this generation.

    my sister deeopvled cervical cancer due to HPV. I DID hear her cries and feel her pain just as much as I could just like she did when I was diagnosed with adrenal and metastatic thyroid cancer. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone BUT…That does not mean YOU, Dr. Ruth, or anyone else has a right to say me, my daughter or anyone else is making the wrong choice for us and yes, that is exactly what your post was saying. I think you know that though don’t you?I honestly don’t give a rat’s ass if you and Dr. Ruth wrote books together much less if you’ve been included in her books or have credentials online, it doesn’t impress me one bit. WHY? Because I’ve spent plenty of time around people who thought they knew it all or thought they were tops in their field and you know what? I’ve got the scars to prove they didn’t know shit.I’m glad you are an STD advocate because that is a great thing but that doesn’t make your opinion and your way right. Are you 100% absolutely without a doubt positive that this vaccine won’t harm or even kill people? Here, I’ll answer for you…no, I’m sure you’re not so what will YOUR pathetic lame excuse be when these women come to you down the road?? Your little comment can end up biting you on the ass as well.That street goes two ways when it comes to vaccinations dear and there’s nothing wrong with choosing to vax or not vax. Be an advocate for STDs but don’t ever think you have the right to demean my daughter’s choice or any other woman’s.I’m big enough to apologize for calling you an idiot but that’s about it. Refrain from insulting you? Did you refrain from insulting the millions of girls and woman who aren’t getting the HPV vax??

      As I read this article, Claire is not demeaning anyone’s choice. What she is demanding is that we have accurate information when we make our choice.

      For all medical procedures, we have to weigh the risks and the benefits: when the full set of risks is known for HPV vaccine, and the uncertainty about any benefits, no one will choose to get this particular vaccine. (And in fact, there have already been far more people injured or killed by the HPV vaccine than it could possibly save from cancer.)

    The science is flawed and corrupted as it relates to DNA virus HPV causing cancer. It cannot. DNA virus kill cells. Cancer is hyperplasia – rapid abnormal cell growth due to aneuploidy. The two are worlds apart. If a DNA virus could cause cancer, cancer would be infectious. IT IS NOT! But that’s how low the CDC has sunk. To convince the virologically ignorant public that virus can cause cancer and then endorsed a vaccine as effective. Lunacy!!! In the 90’s they blamed cervical cancer on HSV-2, a DNA virus. Again, not possible. But why the change to HPV?

    RNA virus, like HIV, if anyone is interested, were thought to be the catalyst of cancer due to it’s inability to kill the cell it enters….I won’t say infect because the body produces millions of retroviruses whose job it is to carry intercellular code between cells. Also called associated or passenger virus.

    Good luck straightening out the snarl of lies produced by these agencies we are supposed to put our trust in.
