Mother of Injured Gardasil Girl Demands
Gardasil’s ‘New Medical Conditions’ Be Legitimized as
Post-Gardasil Syndrome (PGS) & Post-Cervarix Syndrome (PCS)

By Leslie Carol Botha, Vice President of Public Relations
November 29, 2011

One would think the world is facing a cervical cancer epidemic with the amount of money being exchanged and laws changed to make sure the potentially dangerous HPV vaccines and the rDNA contaminated Gardasil become front and center in global consumer markets. One must also be starting to question the hidden agendas behind this world-wide vaccination program.

Kind of slick and sly for the global media to announce on the U.S. Thanksgiving Day that Gardasil will make its debut in the UK by September 2012. Merck’s marketing department shows no thoughtfulness or integrity towards the parents of dead and injured Gardasil children to break this news on a traditional holiday with damaged families trying to count their blessings while battling the feelings of anger, frustration, betrayal, and powerlessness they now live with daily.

Updated VAERS Data

According to SANE Vax Inc. VAERS Researcher, Janny Stokvis, there has been another increase in adverse injuries and deaths from the HPV vaccines since the last report issued in August. Data below for HPV 2 Cervarix & HPV 4 Gardasil adverse reactions (estimated 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured population reporting) as of October 11 with significant category increases compared to August 11, 2011:

HPV Vaccines October

Disabled 780

Deaths 104

Did Not Recover 4,898

Abnormal Pap Smear 467

Cervical Dysplasia 177

Cervical Cancer 41

Life Threatening 457

Emergency Room Visit 9,312

Hospitalized 2,335

Extended Hospital stay 208

Serious 3,155

Total Adverse Events 23,982


VAERS ID 437735 shows that on July 6, 2011, an 18 year old girl from Massachusetts died 84 days after receiving two shots of Gardasil:

Relapse of ITP: 18 year-old female with immune thrombocytopenic purpura, diagnosed in 1995 and in remission from 2004 to 2011 following treatment with Rituximab. Relapse in early April, 2011, followed administration of Gardasil vaccine on 10-26-10 and 1-7-11. Relapse of ITP led eventually to death from intracranial hemorrhage on 07/06/2011.

According to MedScape Reference: “Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a clinical syndrome in which a decreased number of circulating platelets (thrombocytopenia) manifests as a bleeding tendency, easy bruising (purpura), or extravasation of blood from capillaries into skin and mucous membranes (petechiae).” 1.
VAERS reports that the parents noted the petechiae event sometime in April, however, when tested, the girl’s lab diagnostics showed that the blood work was within normal range:

CBC on 04/26/2011 included platelet count 5000; WBC 5.4 with normal differential, Hgb 12.8, Hct 37.2, MCV 87.9; normal RBC morphology. 2.

SANE Vax Inc. is demanding an investigation into the death of an already immune-comprised teen girl who received Gardasil when the safety and efficacy data is based on clinical trials on healthy girls.3. What was the mechanism of action that caused her death from an intracranial hemorrhage?

HPV Vaccines – More than Double Vaccine Reactions than all other Recommended Vaccinations

In August, Steven Rubin posted disturbing data in VAERS showing that for the ‘CDC-recommended vaccines for 7-18-year-olds, HPV vaccine injuries were greater than others in that group.’ Rubin compiled the data below for the two age groups 0 – 6 and 7 – 18 showing the approximate numbers of reported adverse injuries from only the recommended vaccines for that age group.

Rubin notes “…..children age 0-6 years are reporting the most VAERS events following a DTP vaccination. Children ages 7-18 years are significantly affected by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. Note that HPV is already associated with over 100 deaths, and is not limited to girls (there are three reports of boys who have died following an HPV vaccination). This is not the most widely given vaccination for 7-18 year olds, but it appears frequently in VAERS and is associated with serious adverse effects.4.

Gardasil Victim’s Mother Demands Naming Gardasil ‘New Medical Conditions’

Deanna Martinez, mother of Shelby, age 17; who Martinez calls a “Gardasil Victim because she suffers from adverse reactions to this killer drug every day,” had her first and only Gardasil shot on March 31, 2011 and has been ill ever since. Martinez contacted Norma Erickson, President of SANE Vax Inc. via email to express her frustration and concerns that the Gardasil children are afflicted with a ‘nameless condition,’ instead of an official primary diagnosis. She wrote:

“Of course, there is the familiar and vague ‘adverse reaction to the Gardasil vaccine’ or worse ‘possible adverse reaction to the Gardasil vaccine’ or ‘condition of unknown etiology’ which no one understands and few believe in. There are other diagnoses for conditions that result from the adverse reaction to Gardasil — Lupus, neuropathy, migraines, chronic fatigue…of unknown etiology-you know that the endless list goes on and on. However, these are all SECONDARY conditions and diagnoses!

“In order for our children’s illnesses to be legitimized and ultimately a cure or treatment to be found we must have an official primary diagnosis. And that primary diagnosis must officially and directly be tied to the Gardasil injection. It MUST have a name! Furthermore, a treatment protocol must be designed. We must no longer settle for a nameless condition with no standard of treatment.

“I am sure that at different times we all call our kids’ illness different names. I believe that it makes their illness less believable, even and sometimes especially, for them. It makes their voices smaller. It makes their lives harder. It sends the wrong message to the world. It does not further their cause.

“Just think, if your child had Diabetes would you tell people that they had an adverse reaction to sugar? If your child had asthma would you just say they had an adverse reaction to allergens in the air? We need to name our kids’ illness.

“Because we have already had to do so much of the research and treatment and lifesaving for our children on our own, let’s not wait for the medical community, the drug company or the government to come up with an official diagnosis name. Let’s determine a name for their condition on our own! Let’s all call it one condition. Let’s use it in our daily lives with our child, our doctors, our family and friends, in our correspondence, on our websites, in our emails, everywhere. Let’s give our kids some power back by legitimizing their illness. Let’s get the word out that our kids really are sick and their sickness has a name-it’s legitimate!”

SANE Vax Inc. agrees with Martinez’s astute observations – and we support her demand that adverse reactions from the HPV vaccines not only be named but used universally by medical consumers, educators, researchers, medical professionals, government health agencies, politicians and the media.
SANE Vax Inc. is announcing from this time forward adverse reactions from Merck’s HPV 4 Gardasil now be known as Post-Gardasil Syndrome (PGS) and GlaxoSmithKline’s HPV 2 Cervarix be known as Post-Cervarix Syndrome (PCS).

PGS & PCS will be applied to the reported adverse conditions from the HPV vaccines whose symptoms include but are not limited to the following conditions:

Post Gardasil Syndrome & Post-Cervarix Syndrome
Adverse Reactions

Parents and advocates around the world are uniting to stop this global vaccine program threatening the lives and health of their adolescent children. If you know of someone who already suffers from PGS or PCS, please have them contact SANE Vax Inc. at Governments of the world need to know medical consumers are now demanding safe, affordable, effective and necessary vaccinations. Gardasil does not meet any of the above requirements. Governments of the world must also be held accountable for damaging the health and well being of the children of their constituents.

Contaminated Gardasil Vaccine May Be Infectious – Potentially Causing Millions More to Become Sick via Blood Transference – Merck Doctor Admits Contaminant Does Not Belong in the Vaccine

November 11, 2011
By Leslie Carol Botha, Vice-President Public Relations

Gardasil Contaminated with HPV rDNA

In September of this year, SANE Vax Inc. broke the news that 100% of the Gardasil vials tested proved to be contaminated with a recombinant HPV DNA attached to aluminum. The nonprofit organization contracted with a private lab to run the tests at request of informed physician and medical consumers concerned about HPV vaccine safety and efficacy. The laboratory informed SANE Vax Inc. that one hundred percent of the thirteen (13) samples of Gardasil™ taken from lots #1437Z, #1511Z, #0553AA, #NL35360, #NP23400, #NN33070, #NL01490, #NM25110, #NL39620, #NK16180, #NK00140, #NM08120 and #NL13560, currently being marketed in the U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, Spain, France, and Poland were found to be positive for HPV rDNA.

In the past month global government health agencies went from demanding that vaccine contamination be investigated – to accepting a universal statement possibly written by Merck – that the agencies were well aware that the ‘presence of DNA fragments was to be expected and did not pose a safety risk. 1. And life went on as usual.

On October 25, 2011, an advisory panel to the CDC, who actually receives a ‘kick-back’ on Gardasil sales recommended that the vaccine be administered to boys ages 9 to 26 – creating a whole new market for sales and profits. The recommendation, which falls short of a mandate, means Merck’s Gardasil vaccine could be added to vaccination schedules in pediatricians’ offices across the country.2

Meanwhile – a well-known doctor from Peru, concerned about the safety and efficacy of Gardasil, was scheduled to debate a doctor from Merck at a conference. Just prior to the scheduled debate, the conference moderator told the audience that the doctor from Merck was in a hurry so he could not stay for the debate regarding the vaccine and instead he would be the first one to address the conferees.

When it was the doctor from Peru’s turn to speak she shared the data and research regarding the contamination of Gardasil with HPV rDNA attached to the aluminum adjuvant. The conference attendees were shocked.

The doctor then accompanied her gynecologist husband to a party for medical professionals and to her great surprise the doctor from Merck was at the gathering. He of course, was embarrassed to be exposed. When approached by the doctor from Peru he told her that the findings on Gardasil contamination were indeed correct – and the fragments of HPV rDNA did not belong in the vaccine. And then the ‘good doctor’ tried not to talk to her again that evening. Perhaps this admission of guilt is the reason he could not or would not debate the vaccination contamination issue?

The Gardasil vaccine controversy reads like a well-scripted science fiction novel since medical professionals and researchers have not yet developed a test to conduct studies on the short-term or long term medical effects of a run-way genetically engineered virus bound to aluminum being injected into the body.

SANE Vax Inc. Concerns

Does the aluminum adjuvant become the carrier for HPV DNA causing said DNA to remain in the blood and/or organs for an extended length of time?
Since viral DNA cannot replicate by itself (it needs a host cell) what happens if genetically engineered viral DNA enters a human host cell?
How will this now ‘genetically-engineered cell’ replicate? Will it mutate the host cell leading towards cancer?
How will genetically engineered cells affect the reproductive health of future generations?
How does the immune system react to the detection of a combination viral DNA and human DNA in what was once a ‘normal’ cell? Will the immune system fight the now genetically engineered human cell?
Can Gardasil Contaminants be Transmitted to Others?

Back in the U.S. Lauren a Gardasil injured teenager – (now adversely affected as long as the purported vaccine’s efficacy – 5 years), was volunteering at a blood drive which left her mother Rosemary, Vice-President of Victim Support wondering ‘If the Gardasil victims are affected by the residue that is in the vaccine, what will it do if they give blood? Could the recipients of the blood from donors who have had the vaccine be affected by the recombinant HPV DNA? Can it be transferred via a blood transfusion?’

Rosemary went on to express her concerns to the SANE Vax group that most people who are receiving transfusions are already traumatized and immune-compromised from vehicular or other accidents, surgeries, or poor health conditions. What will this recombinant HPV DNA virus do to these people?

Gardasil Science Fiction Scenario Unfolds

Let’s add to the unfolding science-fiction scenario. Now that Merck and the government health agencies are aware of the contamination in Gardasil and the ‘good’ doctor’s public admission that the contamination does not belong in the vaccine, what will the pharmaceutical giant do? What happens if Merck quietly ‘recalls’ contaminated vials of Gardasil and replaces their stockpiles with non-contaminated vials?

How will this affect the millions of adolescents who may have already received the contaminated vaccine? By the time HPV rDNA test protocols are developed – there may no longer be contaminated lots available for study.

Millions could be left wondering what will happen to them as the genetically engineered viral DNA possibly infects more and more host cells in the body. Will they fall victim to a multitude of autoimmune disorders caused by the marauding viral contaminants eroding their immune system? Will their bodies become riddled with ‘cancerous’ cells? How will the presence of rDNA affect their fertility or the health of future generations?

At this point, no one knows the answers to these questions – and the innocent have truly become human medical experiments.

Take the case of Alexis Wolfe, a teenage girl who became ‘mentally retarded’ post Gardasil vaccination– who is now back in the emergency room, dehydrated – weighing in at 104 pounds and unable to sleep for days. It has been four years since this young girl was vaccinated. Are the genetically engineered viral particles slowly invading every other cell in her body?

Perhaps in the interest of public health and safety vials of the contaminated vaccine should be bought by parents with injured children, researchers and medical professionals so it is possible to develop tests and study the mechanisms of action of viral contaminants attached to aluminum. The purchase of a vial of Gardasil may well indeed hold the only hope for the victims of a vaccine experiment gone bad.

FDA Information on Gardasil – Betrayal of the Public Trust?

FDA Information on Gardasil – Betrayal of the Public Trust?
October 28, 2011
By Norma Erickson, President

In response to the recent announcement by SANE Vax Inc. of the discovery of genetically modified HPV DNA residue in multiple vials of Gardasil, the FDA posted the following page on their site, FDA Information on Gardasil – Presence of DNA Fragments Expected, No Safety Risk. The FDA lists several ‘key facts’ in an obvious attempt to allay any fears which may have arisen over the discovery of foreign DNA in yet another ‘safe and effective’ vaccine. Unfortunately, these ‘key facts’ raise more questions than answers.

In spite of the fact the FDA claims their mission is, helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines, there are no scientific references and no indication that these ‘key facts’ are anything more than damage control statements. American medical consumers deserve better from an agency funded by taxpayers and entrusted with the mission of being responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices…… (FDA mission statement)

According to the Consumer Justice Group, in the last 27 years, there have been 31 drugs approved ‘safe and effective’ by the FDA which were subsequently withdrawn from the market due to safety concerns not uncovered during clinical trials. No one will ever know the true cost in human suffering resulting from adverse reactions to these 31 FDA approved ‘safe and effective’ medications.

Medical consumers worldwide are not willing to risk their children’s health and perhaps their very lives on a vaccine that ‘might’ prevent cancer 20 to 30 years down the road. Parents are not willing to wait until the adverse events post Gardasil vaccination reaches the same numbers as Vioxx did before the vaccine is withdrawn from the market.

Medical consumers around the world are no longer willing to accept the FDA’s ‘word’ when it comes to HPV vaccines and their children’s health and safety. They are demanding scientific proof of the claims made by the FDA and vaccine manufacturers.

FDA ‘Key Facts,’ and questions raised by SANE Vax Inc. on behalf of medical consumers:

Gardasil does contain recombinant HPV L1-specific DNA fragments, but these are not contaminants. DNA encoding the HPV L1 gene is used in the vaccine manufacturing process to produce the virus-like particles that make up the vaccine. The presence of these DNA fragments is expected, is not a risk to vaccine recipients, and is not a safety factor. DNA is the “blueprint” for the majority of living organisms and carries the genetic instructions for how cells function and grow.
Do these ‘expected’ DNA fragments contain plasmid?
Please explain why, if these HPV rDNA fragments are ‘expected,’ why did the manufacturer have to invent a patented process to remove them?
Please provide the DNA sequences of all ‘expected’ HPV DNA fragments in the vaccine.
Provide copies of all scientific studies that prove these DNA fragments are ‘not a risk to vaccine recipients.’
Do the above referenced studies include studies regarding the potential safety concerns of these ‘expected’ DNA fragments being tightly bound to aluminum hydroxyphosphate micro-particles?
The vaccine manufacturing process is highly regulated under FDA’s current good manufacturing practice requirements, including inspections conducted by FDA of the manufacturing processes and facilities.
Please publish all reports of FDA inspections of the four manufacturing facilities from which the Gardasil samples tested at Milford Medical Laboratory originated since Gardasil’s FDA approval, including the DNA sequences of the detectable residual HPV DNA molecules and the quantity of total HPV DNA per Gardasil dose.
Since the early development of Gardasil, FDA and the manufacturer (Merck and Co., Inc.) have known that after purification of the vaccine, small quantities of residual recombinant HPV L1-specific DNA fragments remain in the vaccine. Gardasil does not contain DNA from other HPV genes or any full-length infectious HPV genomes.
If Merck and Co., Inc. and the FDA knew small quantities of residual recombinant HPV L1-specific DNA fragments remain in Gardasil, why do marketing and information packets from around the world specifically state the vaccine contains ‘no viral DNA’?
Please publish the manufacturer’s dated report, stating the acceptable quantities and the sequences of the residual recombinant HPV L1-specific DNA fragments that remain in the vaccine.
Is the FDA aware that injected naked microbial or viral DNA need not be either full-length or ‘infectious’ to potentially cause a health problem?
As it does with all vaccines, FDA continues to monitor the safety of Gardasil. For example, FDA recently evaluated the results of a postmarketing study, which included 189,629 females ages 9 to 26 years, 51% of whom were 9 to 15 years of age to assess the risk for onset of new autoimmune diseases after vaccination with Gardasil. Examples of these types of diseases include juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, etc. The results of this study showed that there is no elevated risk for onset of new autoimmune disease associated with the use of Gardasil.
Did the 189,629 females selected for postmarketing study include cases reported to VAERS?
Is the FDA aware there are 75 vaccines approved for use in the United States and for the first five years after the approval of HPV vaccines, adverse events reported after HPV vaccinations account for a full 16% of the entire VAERS database? See the analysis here.
Why does this fact not raise a red flag prompting an investigation?
FDA also continually reviews all reports of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System after vaccination with Gardasil, and there is no evidence of unusual clinical patterns or high reporting rates of adverse events, including autoimmune diseases.
Is the FDA aware of the fact that out of 75 FDA approved vaccines, adverse injury reports post-HPV vaccination account for the following percentages of VAERS reports for all vaccines?
24% of all life-threatening events
26% of all emergency room visits
25% of all hospitalizations
33% of all extended hospital stays
36% of all disabling events
Why do the above statistics, verifiable here, not raise a red flag requiring investigation?
Did the FDA consider cases of immune-based acute disseminated encephalomyelitis after Gardasil injections (1-7) evidence of unusual clinical patterns? If not, why not?
Medical consumers around the globe are asking the same questions. They will no longer accept semantics games, changing definitions, or public relations statements. Medical consumers demand scientific evidence.

If the FDA is actually protecting the public health, there should be no problem providing scientific documentation answering the questions above. Anything less than full compliance is a betrayal of the public trust, not to mention a violation of the public’s right to informed consent. Notions of equal treatment should be cast aside under the circumstances–can the FDA really support exposing our boys to these significant health risks?

How Far Will Taxpayer-Sponsored Health Agencies Go To Protect HPV Vaccines?

How Far Will Taxpayer-Sponsored Health Agencies Go To Protect HPV Vaccines?
October 17, 2011 By Norma Leave a Comment
By Norma Erickson, President
Rather than address legitimate medical consumers’ concerns about HPV vaccines, government health agencies decide to change the definitions and hope the problems will go away.

28 Feb 2011, SaneVax Inc. published an article titled, Health Care Fraud: HPV ‘vaccines’ are not vaccines at all. This article quoted the definition of ‘vaccine’ from a website sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). On that date, the definition of ‘vaccine’ was, “a product of a weakened or killed microorganism (bacteria or virus) given for the prevention or treatment of an infectious disease.”

Everyone knows infection is not synonymous with an infectious disease. You cannot ‘catch’ cancer from someone else. Therefore, it is not an infectious disease. By the HHS definition, any injection administered to protect against cancer of any type is not a vaccine.

The SaneVax article went on to quote from a publication entitled, FDA 101: Health Fraud Awareness. This document clearly states, “Health fraud is the deceptive sale or advertising of products that claim to be effective against medical conditions or otherwise beneficial to health, but which have not been proven safe and effective for those purposes.”

It appears the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the agency responsible for oversight of the FDA, agreed with the SANE Vax assessment of HPV ‘vaccines.’ However, instead of addressing the problem of potential fraud the DHHS decided to re-route the original page and alter the definition of vaccine. The DHHS definition of vaccine now reads, “A product that produces immunity therefore protecting the body from the disease. Vaccines are administered through needle injections, by mouth and by aerosol.”

You can verify the change by watching closely after clicking on the following link: (For a brief moment, you will see the original page, before it is re-routed to the new page with the altered definition.)

Much the same thing happened when SANE Vax Inc. reported the discovery of recombinant HPV DNA firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant in 13 lots of Gardasil from multiple countries around the world.

According to government ‘health’ agencies representing at least thirty countries from around the world, the words “no viral DNA” do not mean what any medical consumer would assume they mean. In spite of the fact ‘no viral DNA’ appears on multiple government ‘health’ agency documents; now, medical consumers are told, “All medicinal products manufactured using recombinant technology may contain small fragments of residual DNA.”

Consider the following excerpts from an FDA document stressing the importance of medical consumers reporting problems with various products regulated by the FDA:

Consumers can play an important public health role by reporting to FDA any adverse reactions or other problems with products the agency regulates.
The testing that helps to establish the safety of products, such as drugs and medical devices, is typically conducted on small groups before FDA approves the products for sale.
Some problems can remain unknown, only to be discovered when a product is used by a large number of people.
When problems with FDA-regulated products occur, the agency wants to know about them ……
It appears that ‘knowing’ about a problem and doing something about it are two different things. SaneVax Inc. has reported problems with HPV vaccines to the FDA on multiple occasions. (All correspondence can be viewed here.) Regarding the most recent concern about recombinant (genetically modified) HPV DNA found in Gardasil™ from multiple manufacturing facilities, the FDA completely ignored the fact that the residual HPV DNA is firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant. Furthermore, FDA officials appeared more concerned with semantics games than asking to examine the detailed genetic sequences contained in the laboratory results. Perhaps if they did, their own laboratories could confirm the Genbank DNA sequences found.

The FDA, CDC, and DHHS all have their salaries paid by American taxpayers. They are charged with the mission of protecting the public’s health and safety. Do these agencies truly believe American medical consumers are so gullible that they will dismiss such an obvious case of misleading and possibly fraudulent marketing of not only one, but two medical interventions that do not meet the definition of ‘vaccine’ being marketed and sold to the world as cancer vaccines?

Do FDA officials really believe medical consumers are naïve enough to accept a proverbial pat on the head from the people they pay to protect their health and safety? The SANE Vax team does not think so. Now that the FDA ‘knows’ about the problem, it is time for them to perform the job they are paid to do.

Give medical consumers scientific documentation proving HPV ‘vaccines’ actually live up to the marketing claims made by the manufacturers. Provide scientific evidence proving residual HPV rDNA firmly attached to an aluminum adjuvant poses no health risk when injected into their children.

Medical consumers world-wide deserve more than altered definitions and semantics games, particularly when their children’s health is at stake. Medical consumers deserve scientific facts. Medical consumers deserve the truth. Anything less deprives them of their right to informed consent.


LAS VEGAS, NV, OCTOBER 17TH, 2011: In response to the discussions surrounding the aggressive mandating of the Gardasil vaccine that have taken place during the Republican debates, the Canary Party will be holding a press conference on the damaging outcomes of this vaccine push featuring families of young women injured by and lost to the Gardasil vaccine, Tuesday, October 18th at 3pm outside the East entrance to The Venetian's Sands Expo and Convention Center at 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas 89109, prior to the GOP debate. All of the Republican candidates have been invited to attend.

Hearing directly from these families is crucial:

“Alexis spent six months at the University of New Mexico Hospital enduring plasmapheresis, two spinal taps and ultimately a diagnosis of encephalitis from viral infection, traumatic brain injury and a seizure disorder.”

“She was and honor roll student in the seventh grade, failing in the eighth grade and starting high school in a special education class in diapers. She’s reading at a fifth grade level with maybe the comprehension of fourth grader. She was kicked out of school this year in just the third week.”

“After that day, she never returned to school. She couldn’t focus on homework — BaLeigh used to be very articulate, she had a lot of wisdom for her age, very observant about life. Afterward she was ill, she had a hard time following or carrying on a conversation.”

“We eventually saw a neurologist at Johns Hopkins and we felt like were practically kicked out of the hospital. Turned out his research partner was sponsored by Merck.”

“Chris died 18 days after her third dose of Gardasil.”

“Brittney didn’t want this vaccine in the first place.”

When Governor Rick Perry mandated the HPV vaccine in Texas, the response from the public and the legislature was a clear one, that families are the ones that should be making the decisions what pharmaceuticals to give their children, not government officials, and his mandate was quickly struck down. Last week Californians began learning that Governor Jerry Brown had quietly signed into law AB499 that gave children as young as 12 the decision making responsibility of whether or not to receive the HPV vaccine, removing the right of parents to even know the vaccine was given. This statute violates federal vaccine safety law requiring fully informed consent by a parent for any vaccine delivered to a child and is completely inappropriate given that the vaccine that has a 30 page package insert that no 12 year old could comprehend and is undergoing a new round of scrutiny as to its safety and effectiveness.

The HPV vaccine - what do you really know about it?

Friday, October 14, 2011 by: Rosemary Mathis, Vice President of Victim Support, SANE VAX, INC

(NaturalNews) If you are considering vaccinating your child with an HPV vaccine, what information have you read, and what questions have you asked?What do you KNOW about the human papillomaviruses (HPV) which the medical profession says causes cervical cancer?

If you are going to vaccinate your child on the word of the medical profession, and don't want any further information, then stop right here. But be aware that ignorance is not bliss. And that the medical system has deliberately not told you everything you need to know about either the viruses, or the vaccine.

If you want to take responsibility for your own decisions, rather than hand over responsibility to the medical profession, then you might be interested in some of the following questions and answers, which deserve truthful answers that the vaccine industry doesn't want to give you:

Question: Publicity for Gardasil says that girls should have this HPV vaccine before sexual intercourse, because they don't catch this virus until they are sexually active. Is this correct?

No, this is not correct. Over the last 20 years, the medical profession has documented that human papillomaviruses can be transmitted during pregnancy, after pregnancy, from child to child, and adult to child.

Question: Why then are we told that these human papillomaviruses can only be contracted after sex?

Because adolescents are the market Merck was targeting, and to admit that the viruses can be acquired naturally before sex, doesn't suit Merck. The medical literature for the last 20 years has also stated that to ignore the fact that HPV viruses can cause silent infection at any age 'has implications for any vaccination programme,' though those 'implications' have never been spelled out. However, they expect parents to naively believe that intelligent human papillomaviruses know they aren't allowed to let themselves loose, until the first act of sexual intercourse. And for some reason, most parents believe this sort of nonsense statement.

Question: Are these viruses implicated in cervical cancers, and other cancers?

Yes they are - but primarily in people, whose innate immune system is struggling because they eat rubbish, drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, don't get enough sleep, and burn the candle at 12 ends. Much more than a virus is required for a woman to get cervical cancer.

Question: Doesn't everyone get human papillomavirus infections?

Yes. Not only has 'everyone' but just about any species that breathes gets papillomavirus infections - even lizards. The medical literature shows that a good diet, correct mineral and vitamin intake, and living a healthy lifestyle, normally results in the recipient throwing off HP infections easier than a cold, and all they have to show for it, is lifelong natural immunity. Healthy lifestyles don't fill Big Pharma bank balances, so you won't be told about that.

Question: But I've been told this vaccine is so important! Is that wrong

This vaccine is very important for Merck's accountants - vitally important. It's 'the' product that is supposed to dig Merck out of its current financial woes.

But is it important for your child? No. The cervical smear programme stopped people dying of cervical cancer long before 'fear-no-longer' Gardasil came along. And because the vaccine only covers two types out of at least 20 supposedly carcinogenic HP virus types (amongst at least 300 different strains), people who have cancer phobia will still want to have smears anyway. Today, 90% of all deaths from cervical cancer occur in the third world countries which don't have such a programme, or the ability to deal with abnormal smears even if they had a smear programme. The primary drivers of cervical cancer in third world countries are chronic malnutrition, and fundamentally atrocious living conditions, which happens to create the most susceptible population with the least resources.

Question: So why have I been recommended to inject my child with three Gardasil vaccines?

Because if a vaccine is available the medical system tries to scare everyone into using it. After all, it's much easier to 'believe' their assumption that antibodies from Gardasil will still be around 40 years from now. It's much easier not to have to pay attention to diet, and all the other things which would make sure most people never got cancer in the first place.
But the bottom line is that Merck developed Gardasil in the hope that it would be a 'block-buster' vaccine which would help pay for all the litigation Merck faces as the result of another Merck drug, called Vioxx, which maimed and killed lots of people, whose families then turned around and sued Merck for millions of dollars.

Obviously, Merck isn't going to make any money from the third world -the countries that really need it, according to Dr Frazer who co-patented the vaccine. So Merck decided to target all the rich countries that do not need Gardasil. By charging wealthy countries lots of money, then maybe someday about forty years from now..., they might get around to providing it to people in the third world, if they are still around. Which is a bit farcical, when in those countries, what the people could really do with, is decent food, clean water, getting rid of nepotistic dictators and warring tribes, being provided with basic healthcare, and the means of growing their own food... but all that's much too hard. Particularly when Merck's main aim is making money and staying in business.

Question: What is in Gardasil?

According to the data sheet, the vaccine supposedly contains 'no viral DNA1' and each 0.5 mL dose of the vaccine contains:
20 mcg of HPV 6 L1 protein
40 mcg of HPV 11 L1 protein
40 mcg of HPV 16 L1 protein
20 mcg of HPV 18 L1 protein
225 mcg aluminum (as amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate adjuvant2)

9.56 mg of sodium chloride
0.78 mg of L-histidine
50 mcg of polysorbate 80 (shown to induce infertility in mice, which is why it's the main ingredient in depo-provera, and which also makes the brain blood barrier easier to penetrate)
35 mcg of sodium borate
water for injection

Question: What do you mean,'Supposedly'?

Contrary to the manufacturers' documents, the vaccine does actually contain Viral DNA. According to documents filed with Medsafe New Zealand, each vaccine also has a much higher amount of HPV protein than stated on the product insert, in order to ensure that as the vaccine degrades over time, at the END of the shelf life, the vaccine will actually contain the stated dose on the vial.

Question: What do you mean, this vaccine has recombinant HPV viral DNA! What is recombinant HPV viral DNA?

This is where small lengths of genes from two different sources, are combined to make a single recombined length of genes which will perform a specific function.

Question: The New Zealand Government, the manufacturers and all the health authorities not only assured us that there is no DNA, but they say SANE Vax Inc.'s allegations of contamination with DNA are a load of smelly porkies! Explain yourself please?

No-one from the Government, FDA, EMA, or Health Departments have at any time, asked to see the test results of the vaccine, which SANE Vax Inc. commissioned. So, on what basis do they think that the test results are incorrect?

Gardasil was made by taking a DNA sequence (which makes the virus "envelope") from different types of papillomaviruses found in cancerous cervical cells. This viral genetic sequence was then spliced into a plasmid 3 - a circular piece of bacterial DNA (which helps divide the bacterial chromosomes) and allows the HPV DNA to be cloned into yeast. Plasmid DNA also encourages quick manufacture of the 'balls,' by the HPV genes. The genetically engineered mix then makes lots of little empty balls, or 'virus like particles' as seen in photo4 of the Gardasil vaccine.

Then according to Merck's patent5, they have a highly sophisticated process which is supposed to filter out and remove 'contaminating biomolecules, including DNA, lipids and proteins.'
What the test results found, was that some recombinant DNA sequences originating from different types of the virus DNA used to make the vaccine, are still in the vaccine.

Question: What are all those other bits in that photo?

Aluminium, and presumably more mashed up virus like particles. But according to the tests commissioned by SANE Vax Inc., viral DNA used to make those little balls and mashed up pieces, are not removed from Gardasil.
Question: But FDA says that these recombinant DNA are "expected" when using this process. Isn't that true?

No. If those DNA fragments were "expected" components of Gardasil, they would have been listed in the ingredients of the vaccine, and documentation should exist showing why they are a safe and 'essential' ingredient in the vaccine.

Question: How does this fancy patented purification process tell the difference between culture medium DNA, yeast DNA and HPV DNA?
You tell me and we'll both know.

Question: If SANE-vax's tests ARE actually correct, why did a purification process which is supposed to remove DNA lipids, proteins, and biomolecules not work?

I think Merck would like to know the answer to that as well. In the meantime, FDA are covering Merck's butt for them.

Question: But isn't there a final product purity test for Gardasil?
In New Zealand, according to paper work submitted to Medsafe, there are no final purity tests, because Merck believes their filtration process is good enough without them.

Question: But aren't there filtration tests designed to make sure the process is good enough?

According to paper work submitted to Medsafe, there are no filtration "adequacy" tests because Merck believes their process is good enough without them.

Question: Isn't Gardasil made the same way as the Hepatitis B vaccine?

Yes, and according to FDA6 documentation, "Assays for cesium, polysaccharides, DNA, pyrogens and sterility are performed" on the Hepatitis B bulk product. You'd think the same would be done for Gardasil, wouldn't you?

Question: Does the Hepatitis B vaccine also contain genetically engineered, recombinant DNA?

It would appear that the Hepatitis B vaccine could ALSO contain a similar kind of genetically manipulated DNA (in spite of tests to ensure DNA removal). Such recombinant DNA in the Hepatitis B vaccines is also not mentioned in its data sheet or constituent list.

FDA, in its reply to SANE Vax Inc., intimated that Hepatitis B vaccine also contains recombinant DNA, and that such unstated DNA was quite "acceptable". So they are covering Merck's butt for that as well.

Question: FDA says these particles are no big deal because they can't cause infection. Is that true?

No it's not. The point of a vaccine is to form antibodies to various substances called "antigens" in the vaccine. DNA doesn't have to cause infection to spell trouble. Because the recombinant DNA is tightly bound to the aluminium, the aluminium turns the DNA into an 'antigen,' something the immune system has to react to. But an abnormal immune response, especially to an aluminium-bound DNA, could result in antibodies which cross react and turn against healthy DNA. That could cause autoimmune disease, brain inflammation, joint inflammation, and major disruption to energy pathways, hormone functions and a vast array of other biological pathways, which normally keep an adolescent healthy, physically and mentally.

Question: But FDA says that Gardasil is very safe and doesn't cause anything more than a sore arm. Isn't that true?

No. America's FDA and all medical authorities say that all vaccines are safe apart from sore arms, and that everything else that happens after a vaccine is a coincidence..., and anyone who says otherwise, needs their head looked at.

FDA monitors all vaccines by using a system called VAERS, short for the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which is known to only collect 10% of reactions at most, and reporting is voluntary, not mandatory. On the one hand, they 'consult' this system, but on the other, they consider that all reactions sent to this system have nothing to do with the vaccine at all. So in terms of a monitoring system, they might as well not have one at all. In fact, they might as well do away with it altogether, since to them, the fact that Gardasil reports comprise 20% of all reported reactions appears to them to be some fabricated nuisance. It doesn't seem to occur to the FDA, that perhaps there is something badly wrong with this 'lovely safe' vaccine, which their crystal ball says will prevent your child from having cervical cancer, by the (average) age of 54.

Question: Are you telling me, I shouldn't trust the FDA, health authorities and governmental agencies?

Why would you want to trust anyone who tells you something ludicrous like, "Human papillomaviruses have a label on their foreheads saying 'No entry until sex'" when that is patently, proveably untrue? If FDA can spread such ridiculous comments world-wide, without corrective advice from the scientists who know that isn't true, why would the FDA (or silent scientists) bother with the'truth' when it came to anything else?

Question: So what do I do now?

I don't know. It's your choice. You could vaccinate your child, and see what happens. Does that sound like a good idea? If it doesn't, you better tell your child, because in some countries, they can be vaccinated without your consent!

1DNA are genes from the virus - some of which cause infections, and others of which have other functions. The L1 gene strand used to make the vaccine, is specific in that it makes the round ball (envelope) that surrounds the DNA.

2A toxin which sends a red alert danger message to the immune system which says, 'Oi you, there is danger in that locker, go and deal with it.' Without it, the immune system would just yawn and go back to sleep.

Health Authorities Admit Gardasil™ Contains Residual Recombinant HPV DNA

October 14, 2011 By Norma
By Norma Erickson, President

2 September 2011, SANE Vax Inc. posted a letter sent to Dr. Margaret Hamburg, FDA Commissioner, on their website to inform her that recombinant (genetically modified) HPV DNA firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant had been discovered in Merck’s quadrivalent HPV vaccine, Gardasil™.

In what appears to be a worldwide coordinated response, SANE Vax Inc. and other advocacy groups have received the following replies:

22 September 2011, the European Medicines Agency, via Dr. Abadie said, “The presence of recombinant DNA fragments does not represent a case of contamination and is not considered to be a risk to vaccine recipients. All medicinal products manufactured using recombinant technology may contain small fragments of residual DNA.”

23 September 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said, “We have determined that Gardasil is not contaminated with HPV DNA and remains safe and effective….Gardasil does contain recombinant HPV L1 specific DNA fragments. This is expected, since DNA encoding the HPV L1 gene is used in the vaccine manufacturing process to produce the virus-like particles. The presence of these expected DNA fragments, which are inevitable in vaccine production, is not a risk to vaccine recipients, is not harmful, and this DNA is not a contaminant.”

28 September 2011, MedSafe in New Zealand, via email to a local vaccine safety advocate said, “Gardasil is manufactured using recombinant DNA technology so any finding of residual DNA fragments in the vaccine is expected and does not represent contamination.”

7 October 2011, the Queensland Immunisation Program in Australia, via email to an Australian advocate, said, “Gardasil is manufactured using recombinant DNA technology so any finding of residual DNA fragments in the vaccine is expected and does not represent contamination.”
The above statements are all in direct contradiction to the following documentation used on a world-wide basis to either approve, and/or market Gardasil™:

From the United Kingdom: HPV vaccines are sub-unit vaccines made from the major protein of the viral-coat or capsid of HPV.Virus-like particles (VLPs) are prepared as recombinant proteins from either yeast or baculovirus infected cells that are derived from a type of moth. VLPs mimic the structure of the natural virus but do not contain any viral DNA.
From the FDA: “GARDASIL® is not a live virus vaccine; it contains no viral DNA, and is therefore incapable of causing infection.”
From Australia: “GARDASIL contains HPV 6, 11, 16 and 18 L1 VLPs. Each VLP is composed of a unique recombinant L1 major capsid protein for the respective HPV type. Because the virus-like particles contain no viral DNA, they cannot infect cells or reproduce.”

From the Gardasil Access Program: “GARDASIL® is not a live virus vaccine; it contains no viral DNA, and is therefore incapable of causing infection.”
To date, all health agencies responding to the SANE Vax announcement of Gardasil™ contamination have completely ignored the fact that the residual HPV DNA is firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant. Furthermore, no regulatory authority, anywhere, has asked to see the detailed genetic sequences contained in the laboratory results, in order to ask their own laboratories to confirm the Genbank DNA sequences found.

It is important to note that every single time the SANE Vax team communicates with any health ‘authority’ our claims are backed up and referenced with peer-reviewed published scientific studies, data from the manufacturer, or data from government sponsored health agencies. When a response is received, there is no evidence to back up the health agency’s position.

Where does this leave medical consumers? Medical consumers around the world are no longer satisfied with a simple ‘pat on the head’ and ‘assurances’ that vaccines are safe and effective. They demand and deserve scientific proof.

If parents of the Gardasil™ victims had been fully informed of all the risks and limited benefits of Gardasil™, including the presence of recombinant DNA in the vaccine which may cause autoimmune-based disorders, immediate death, or permanent disabilities, they might have been able to make an informed decision. They could have made an informed choice as to whether it was better for their children to risk immediate negative outcomes with a vaccine, or to teach their children about an already proven safe and effective method of controlling cervical cancer, namely regular screening and good gynecological care.

It is time for the manufacturers of HPV vaccines and government health agencies involved to provide scientifically sound proof that residual recombinant HPV DNA firmly attached to an aluminum adjuvant presents no current or future health risk to the children and young adults of the world.

When injecting a healthy population to attempt to control a disease that may occur 40 years down the road in a population that has limited or no access to good gynecological care, there is no excuse for taking on any additional risk involved with vaccination.

Until such time as documented scientific proof is provided, all potentially contaminated vaccines should be withdrawn from the market. Anything less deprives parents around the world of their right to informed consent when making healthcare decisions for their children.

Dr. Sin Hang Lee: A case study in ethics don’t pay

October 4, 2011
By Norma Erickson, President

SANE Vax Inc. was organized to provide medical consumers with all of the information they need to make informed choices about vaccines, HPV vaccines in particular. Dr. Sin Hang Lee, Director of Milford Medical Laboratory Inc. has been instrumental in our efforts to raise consumer awareness regarding safe and effective cervical cancer prevention and the scientific facts in relation to the international HPV vaccine controversy.

Because of studies submitted to the FDA prior to approval of HPV vaccines indicating there was a substantial increase in pre-cancerous lesions for those who had already been exposed to vaccine-relevant genotypes of HPV before they were injected with Gardasil® or Cervarix®, Dr. Lee agreed to offer his cutting edge technology HPV genotyping test to medical consumers throughout the United States to protect those who were considering HPV vaccination so they could avoid that potential risk. The decision was announced to the public via a BusinessWire Press Release on 20 September 2010.

In the fall of 2010, without Dr. Lee’s knowledge or having an opportunity to defend himself, the newly appointed Chairperson of the Pathology Department at Milford Hospital informed the hospital’s credentialing committee that she was not recommending for approval or supporting Dr. Lee’s application for renewal of his medical staff privileges. For those who do not know, medical staff privileges at a hospital are a major asset to a medical doctor and they establish the relationship that permits among other things, the doctor to practice at a particular hospital. When medical staff privileges at a hospital are revoked or not renewed, the doctor no longer has permission to practice at the hospital or use its facilities. The non-renewal of the medical staff privileges, may also adversely affect the doctor’s license to practice medicine. In Dr. Lee’s case, the non-renewal of his medical staff privileges at Milford Hospital is under appeal.

Although Dr. Lee still maintains his medical staff privileges during the appeal, his position as director of the laboratory was summarily terminated along with his employment relationship at Milford Hospital on December 13, 2010 and he has been prevented from using the hospital’s laboratory to continue his testing and research there ever since that time. A lawsuit addressing the wrongful termination claim has been brought against the Milford Hospital.

While the hospital-based appeal hearings and the lawsuit are pending, Dr. Lee’s research and testing and the operation of his world class, CLIA certified molecular diagnostic laboratory at the Milford Hospital have all been significantly hindered and obstructed. Dozens of opportunities for Dr. Lee to test Gardasil samples for contaminants have been lost as the hospital has redirected and/or returned vaccine lots sent to and intended for Dr. Lee back to the senders or other locations. Dr. Lee and his attorneys are pursuing all available legal remedies to restore the testing laboratory as soon as possible in order to protect the public health, safety and well being.

In addition to his efforts to make sure those who choose to use HPV vaccines are able to protect themselves from a potential increased risk of pre-cancerous lesions due to prior exposure to vaccine-relevant HPV, Dr. Lee also allowed SANE Vax Inc. to offer his HPV DNA sequencing technology to those unfortunate enough to have experienced abnormal pap tests after HPV vaccination. SANE Vax Inc. believes these medical consumers have a right to know what genotypes of HPV are associated with their abnormal cells. If they are vaccine-relevant genotypes, the vaccine did not work for them. If they are not vaccine-relevant genotypes, perhaps the manufacturer targeted the wrong genotypes for their geographic area. Either way, medical consumers have a right to know.

Through the donation of his laboratory facilities, time and effort, Dr. Lee was able to confirm the contamination of Gardasil® with recombinant HPV DNA firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant contained in the vaccine. This is a man who has dedicated his life to what is best for the medical consumer, no matter what the cost to himself personally.

It is the belief of the SANE Vax team that Dr. Lee has come under fire because of his association with and support for the SANE Vax mission. Therefore, the SANE Vax Board of Directors is beginning a campaign to let those in charge of deciding Dr. Lee’s fate know that we, along with medical consumers around the world, support Dr. Lee.

If you wish to join us to show your support for Dr. Lee and his ability to continue his much needed research, please take a few minutes to send the following three emails to the authorities in charge of determining Dr. Lee’s fate:

#1 Dr. Joe Pellacia, President and CEO, Milford Medical Hospital

#2 Commissioner Jewel Mullen, Connecticut Department of Public Health

#3 Mr. George Jepsen, Attorney General State of Connecticut

All you need do is copy the linked emails into a new email, add an introductory sentence if you wish, and type your name and state/country after the signature line.

Without the information provided by Dr. Lee and his ongoing research, we feel medical consumers around the world will be deprived of information that is vital to their ability to exercise their right to informed consent when it comes to HPV vaccinations.

Please, take a few minutes and show those in charge of deciding Dr. Lee’s fate that you support his efforts to do what is best for medical consumers.

Gardasil Victim's Mom Speaks About Vaccine Injury: SANEVAX Vaccine Injury Victim Support Line

When vaccine injury occurs and our medical community fails to recognize or diagnose the injury, mothers all over the world turn to SANEVAX, INC. for support. Our victim support line is a lifeline to mothers of the victims of Gardasil and other vaccines. One mother tells her experience regarding the support she received in this very frightening time in her life.

PRLog (Press Release) - Sep 30, 2011 - As the mother of a girl who has suffered injury due to the Gardasil, the HPV vaccine, I know first hand how important the Victims Hotline at SANEVAX.ORG is. We live in a small city in Wyoming with limited medical resources. When my daughter became ill in March of 2011, the medical community in our community was unable and unwilling to treat her. I was advised by our pediatrician that nothing could be done for my daughter and that I should take her home and ‘wait and see’ and ‘hope for the best.’

But I knew in my heart that was not what we should do. I knew that it simply was not enough. So, I searched online and found SANEVAX and the Victim’s Hotline . I contacted several of the names on the hotline via email. I received immediate responses from them. Many of the volunteers were mothers of Gardasil victims. The information the volunteers shared with me was invaluable and it helped save my daughter’s life. The hotline volunteers shared contact information for medical practitioners, and alternative practitioners with experience in treating Gardasil victims. I was also provided practical information about other therapies victim used with success.

At the time, I was desperate, frustrated, angry, confused and scared but the support and information I received from the hotline volunteers gave me real hope that my daughter would recover. I will never be able to thank the Hotline volunteers enough for their willingness to help, to listen, and most of all, to share what they knew from their own personal experiences. My daughter’s condition is much improved, due in large part, to the information and support I received from the hotline. I am eternally grateful to them.

According to VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), as of August 2011, there were 23,388 victims reporting injuries resulting from the Gardasil vaccine This number includes both male and female victims, although female victims currently outnumber male victims. It is believed that the incidence of injury is widely under-reported to due to misinformation and that the actual number of victims is much higher than current statistics reflect.

Despite the alarming number of reported injuries related to the Gardasil vaccine, the vaccine continues to be administered to both boys and girls ages 9 to 26 across the nation and it may soon be a required vaccination in many states. Those who have been injured by Gardasil continue to suffer its devastating effects and more children are vaccinated and become victims every day. All of these victims and their families are searching for information and support that is not easily found in the medical community or in their circles of friends and family. Consequently, the need for Hotline Volunteers is tremendous.

The Hotline is a valuable resource for parents and victims to use to talk to others in their home state, across the nation, and around the world regarding their child’s injury resulting from Gardasil. Hotline Volunteers are most often parents of victims, a concerned person or relative close to a victim of Gardasil, or sometimes a Gardasil victim. Volunteers have a thorough understanding of Gardasil Vaccine Injury. Hotline Volunteers do not offer medical advice at any time to anyone. However, contact information for medical practitioners, alternative medicine practitioners, and an abundance of useful information is offered free of charge. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Hotline Volunteers can provide emotional support to victims and their families.

As a result of the recent media coverage of the political debates and the mention of the controversy surrounding Gardasil, we anticipate the possibility of more victims of Gardasil coming forward in the coming months. It is the goal of the Sane Vax Hotline to offer those victims and their families support and provide them with helpful information. We currently have volunteers in fifteen states and hope to have at least one Hotline Volunteer in every state soon. Sane Vax also has Hotline Volunteers in thirteen countries around the world.

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Hotline Volunteer, please send an email to, and enter “VACCINE HOTLINE” in the email’s subject line. Please go to SANEVAX for more information on injuries resulting from Gardasil and how you can help.

Father of Injured Gardasil Girl Matches Caplan’s Bio-Unethical $10,000 Bet

By Leslie Carol Botha
September 20, 2011

In a striking move, Australian businessman and father of a Gardasil injured girl, Stephen Tunley matched University of Pennsylvania Bioethicist, Dr. Art Caplan’s $10,000 reward for ‘proof of Bachmann vaccine claims.’

Dr. Caplan made headline news after Presidential Candidate Michelle Bachmann, speaking as the mother of three daughters and the foster mother of 23 other adolescent girls publicly called “Gardasil – a potentially dangerous vaccine.’ Bachmann was approached by a mother of a Gardasil injured girl after the Thursday Republican Tea Party debate, and told her daughter was now ‘retarded’ (also known as brain damaged).

Caplan’s response was to place a wager on Bachmann’s ‘incredibly irresponsible falsehood.’

‘If she can produce a case in one week starting today verified by three medical experts that she and I pick of a woman who became ‘retarded’ (her words) due to HPV vaccine I will donate that to a charity of her choice.’ 1.

On Monday, September 19, 2011, SANE Vax Inc. issued a press release on what we feel is a blatant and unprecedented HIPPA violation by exposing a family of an injured child to media scrutiny. 2.

In addition, SAVE Vax Inc. emailed an Open Letter to Dr. Caplan, on September 18 stating our objections to his unethical bet.

‘On behalf of the parents of a group of neurologically injured teenage girls after HPV vaccination, we feel obligated to question your ‘bio’-ethics as you challenge Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann with a $10,000 bet to prove a claim that a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer caused mental retardation. We represent many parents of teenage girls who have suffered a variety of central nervous system (CNS) dysfunctions, including various degrees of mental ‘retardation’ (impairment) as a sequelae of Gardasil® vaccination injuries. It is hard to believe that as bioethicist you openly instigate violation of the HIPAA law.

‘Now, SANE Vax Inc. challenges you, Dr. Caplan. Prove the vaccine Gardasil® has prevented a single case of cervical cancer. We have not found such a case in the world literature, or in the published clinical trial materials. The endpoints used for evaluating the efficacy of Gardasil® were largely self-reversible precancerous changes, not true cancer as defined in any pathology textbooks.’3.

By Monday morning SANE Vax Inc. President, Norma Erickson received this response.

‘Find the case, present it to michelle bachmann, let the doctors we agree on confirm HPV vaccine as the cause and I pay. You have until thursday.’

Arthur Caplan
Emanuel & Robert Hart Director of
The Center for Bioethics and
Sidney D Caplan Professor of Medical Ethics
University of Pennsylvania
3401 Market St. Suite 320

Alerted to the emailed response, Stephen Tunley, researched funding sources for the University of Pennsylvania Bioethics Department and to no one’s surprise found that their primary funding source was none other than the National Institutes of Health.

Outraged, Tunley matched Caplan’s wager – and upped the ante by adding the issue of financial disclosure in the following challenge:

Dear Dr. Caplan

I would like to offer you $10,000 to you to prove that Gardasil did not and does not cause the issues discussed by Ms. Bachman and others. Of course when I win, you might care to donate the monies to SANE Vax. However and unlike your gutless prove it by Thursday deadline – I am happy to keep this offer open for a while.

On a personal note I find it revolting that a ‘bioethicist” would engage in such a bet. Surely your responsibilities are to investigate, consider and approach this with an open mind. But I guess you have long since not been a “real” bioethicist and now are really a ‘vaxapologist!’

One more question: will the $10,000 be sourced from your pockets or from the bioethics centre? As you know, but perhaps many others don’t know, funding for the center comes from a range of sources – including the NIH, which as we say down-under has ‘skin in the game” by being a co-patent holder for Gardasil and receives royalties from its sale.

A wee bit of conflict of interest and perhaps a challenge for you and your supposed ethics! Interesting that this was not disclosed by you!

So Dr Caplan ‘man up;’ disclose your conflicts and take up the challenge!

Stephen Tunley

Father of Chescia Tunley – yet another young woman damaged by Gardasil
The ball is in your court now, Dr. Caplan.

Gardasil Contamination: EMA Steps Up to the Plate, FDA drops the Ball

By Norma Erickson, President
16 September 2011, in response to an inquiry about SANE Vax’s recent discovery of genetically engineered HPV DNA in Gardasil™[i], the following announcement was broadcast on radio out of Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland:

“The IMB (Irish Medicines Board) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) are aware of the recent communication from Sane Vax and following on from this, the EMA requested the marketing authorisation holder conduct an immediate assessment of the risk of contamination.

The IMB, through its participation in EU Scientific Committees is contributing to the ongoing EU assessment of this issue and will continue to do so at further EU meetings scheduled over the coming week. Any updates on the outcome of these discussions and any recommendations will be highlighted, as appropriate. At present, the balance of risks and benefits for the vaccine remains positive.

The Gardasil vaccine has been licensed for use in the EU since 2006. The IMB together with the EMA continue to monitor the benefit-risk profile of Gardasil.”

This is particularly good news for medical consumers in the 27 countries belonging to the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom). An ‘immediate risk assessment’ should mean the marketing authorisation holder must now:

Determine the extent of the contamination
Determine any potential health risk that could result from HPV rDNA attached to aluminium adjuvant being injected into the human body
The critical issue here is not that the vaccine has residual DNA in it, but that the contaminating HPV DNA is genetically modified and firmly attached to the aluminium adjuvant – making it an unknown quantity as far as potential health risks.

Is recombinant (genetically engineered) HPV DNA, or adventitious DNA, capable of altering human DNA potentially initiating cancer, or a host of autoimmune disorders?

The manufacturer of Gardasil™, Merck, went to great lengths to assure government health authorities around the world there was no viral DNA in the vaccine.[ii] [iii] Merck repeatedly told health authorities that this vaccine only contained virus-like particles manufactured from the L1 protein – NO HPV DNA. Recognizing the potential health risks of residual DNA, government health officials relied on this assurance when they approved the vaccine for use in their countries.

The SANE Vax team believes the solution is simple. Gardasil™ does not meet the specifications the manufacturer put forth to gain approval for the use of their HPV vaccine. Therefore, Gardasil™ use should be discontinued until such time as the manufacturer can either remove all residual HPV DNA from the vaccine, or prove the residual HPV rDNA attached to the aluminium adjuvant poses no health risks when injected into the human body.

SANE Vax Inc would like to thank the EMA and IMB for ‘stepping up to the plate.’ We believe demanding an immediate risk assessment be performed by the authorisation holder is the only reasonable avenue available. Medical consumers around the globe will be watching and anxiously awaiting the outcome of your investigations into this matter.

SANE Vax Inc notified the FDA about the discovery of HPV rDNA contaminants in Gardasil™ before anyone else was informed.[iv] Why does this government agency remain strangely silent regarding the contamination of Gardasil™? Has the Food and Drug Administration in the United States ‘dropped the ball’?

Could it be that since the FDA failed to require the manufacturer to test for, evaluate and quantify the risks of residual recombinant HPV DNA in Gardasil™ before granting approval for marketing the vaccine, they just decided to take their toys and go home?

Medical consumers deserve better than that.

Bioethicists Not So Ethical When It Comes to Gardasil Injuries

September 19, 2011 By Leslie Carol Botha 1 Comment

Dr. Caplan et al., we are not willing to gamble with patient’s lives…..
However, you and some of your associates are apparently willing to do just that.

Time to get this story straight: – University of Pennsylvania bioethicist, Dr. Art Caplan1.recently committed what SANE Vax views as an unprecedented HIPAA violation by offering a $10,000 reward for ‘proof of Bachmann vaccine claims.’

Forcing a family to disclose their child’s health records publicly, in front of a maniacal witch burning media network out to get Presidential Candidate Michelle Bachmann, is unethical, immoral, unprofessional and unwarranted. Obviously the news of Gardasil contamination and Bachmann’s reference to the vaccine as potentially dangerous has dug a knife deep into the heart of the Pharma industrial beast.

Now, the beast thinks it can raise its ugly head publicly demanding this family sacrifice a child’s privacy to save Bachmann’s political face. Outrageous.

According to Forbes Magazine, ‘University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Art Caplan is so confident that Michele Bachmann’s claim that a young girl was made mentally retarded by injections of the Gardasil vaccine against human papilloma virus is false that he is offering to donate $10,000 to the charity of Bachmann’s choice if she can produce such a patient.

‘Caplan, who has made the offer via Twitter, to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, on the radio stations WTVN and WOR, also proposes that Bachmann should donate $10,000 to the charity of his choice if such a patient can be produced. He says her campaign hasn’t responded. He writes:

‘If she can produce a case in one week starting today verified by three medical experts that she and I pick of a woman who became ‘retarded’ (her words) due to HPV vaccine I will donate that to a charity of her choice.’ 2.

Charity of Bachmann’s choice? Dr. Caplan, you should be writing a check to the victim’s family to cover the medical costs incurred by the contaminated vaccine. In fact, the entire industry better get their checkbooks ready – because families are lining up ready to speak out and be counted.

In addition to Caplan, ‘another bioethicist, Steven Miles of the University of Minnesota, has offered $1,000 if a patient whose brain was damaged by an HPV vaccine can be produced. The bioethicists are making a pretty safe bet, because the odds of finding a reputable medical expert who will say a case of mental disability was caused by Gardasil is close to nil.’ 2.

Define ‘reputable’ – one who is paid to be beholden to Merck? Sirs, you are doing the 23,388 adversely injured adolescents and the 102 families whose daughters and sons have died HPV post-vaccination a disgraceful disservice with your pompous attitudes.

SANE Vax Inc. believes that Caplan and Miles are violating HIPAA’s (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Patient Privacy Act guaranteeing privacy rights under federal law by focusing the media’s biased pharmaceutical spotlight on innocent families forcing them into the media limelight to disclose their adolescent’s medical history to the public. 3.

All this mother in Florida did was take advantage of the opportunity to let Bachmann know there is a problem with Gardasil. Where is the crime in that? All Bachmann did was publicly report what the mother told her…why should she be raked over the coals…unless of course there is something to hide?

Why not focus on a girl whose mother has already spoken out on the issue to try and find the cause of her brain damage. That is what ‘mental retardation’ is isn’t it?

Hobart Indiana mother Amy Pingel has been very vocal in her efforts to get media attention to the fact that Gardasil can cause serious side effects, including seizures, neurological problems and even paralysis. She believes her daughter is proof.

Her daughter, Zeda was a normal, healthy 13-year-old who loved her family, her friends and her phone. She once was a popular cheerleader and A-B student, who texted and talked tirelessly. Now, she is silent. She is strapped to her wheelchair, her head leaning against a head rest, her eyes wandering, seemingly sightless. She can neither walk, eat, nor speak.4.

Research vs. Rebuttal

If indeed, these bioethicists were ethical, they would be doing the research instead of using their ‘authority’ to refute the claim.

Instead, SANE Vax Inc. has gathered research for them since their arrogance is standing in the way of bioethics.

According to VAERS – the following reports have been listed for HPV, HPV2 & HPV 4 and ‘mental disorders.’ This is an estimated 1 to 10% of the vaccine-injured population reporting.

Encephalitis is known to be an infection that involves inflammation of the brain that can cause mental retardation. 5.

According to Wikipedia – Encephalomyelitis is a general term for inflammation of the brain and spinal cord, describing a number of disorders including:

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis or postinfectious encephalomyelitis, a demyelinating disease of the brain and spinal cord, possibly triggered by vaccination or viral infection; Encephalomyelitis disseminata, a synonym for multiple sclerosis; and Myalgic encephalomyelitis, a syndrome involving inflammation of the central nervous system with symptoms of muscle pain and fatigue; the term has sometimes been used interchangeably with chronic fatigue syndrome 6.

The following peer-reviewed studies point out the links between Encephalitis and HPV Vaccines:

Demyelinating disease and polyvalent human papilloma virus vaccination
J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry doi:10.1136/jnnp.2010.214924

Since its inception, the polyvalent vaccine against the human papilloma virus (HPV), Gardasil, has generated some controversies as a temporal relationship between the administrations of the vaccine and the development of a few autoimmune diseases, such as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), multiple sclerosis (MS) and Guillain–Barre syndrome have been reported. We encountered two cases whose initial presentation of CNS demyelination followed in close time relationship the administration of Gardasil vaccine and we discuss their possible association.

Wildemann et al. present a case of aggressive acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) following immunization with the polyvalent human papillomaviruses (HPV) vaccine. The time between vaccine exposure and onset of illness provides evidence for a cause-effect relationship.

The author goes on to note “…it is important to monitor the occurrence of immune-mediated diseases that are occurring after vaccination with Gardasil®”

Gentlemen – it is high time you acknowledge there is a problem with the HPV vaccines. Medical consumers know it, and researchers and medical professionals are aware. Get your checks ready because we are coming to collect.

The Five Things You REALLY Need to Know about HPV Vaccines

By Tony Isaacs, Contributing Author
After the political tempest about Gardasil and mandatory HPV vaccinations which began at the GOP Tea Party debate, CNN posted an article on September 14th titled “The five things you need to know about the HPV debate”. The article could scarcely have been more pro-HPV vaccination than if Gardasil manufacturer Merck had ghost written it (a practice Merck is known for).

The article contended that the HPV vaccine controversy was mostly political and that HPV vaccines were safe. It also noted that we have been vaccinating children for many years. Besides missing the obvious difference between vaccinating against diseases spread by social contact in schools versus sexual contact in later years, the article’s contention that HPV vaccines are safe is a complete whitewash of the truth.

For those who prefer the truth over mainstream propaganda, here are five things you really need to know about HPV vaccines:

1. Merck needed a new cash cow to replace the billions in profits lost due to its evil drug Vioxx finally being pulled from the market after it caused upwards of 50,000 deaths. Gardasil became the new cash cow heir apparent. Contrary to mainstream misinformation, Gardasil has not been proven to be safe in either the short or the long term. Instead, Merck has once again used deception to portray it as safe and ignored evidence of harm, the same as they did with Vioxx when they hid evidence of harm, rigged studies, and paid scientists and doctors to put their name on articles and papers supporting Vioxx..

In the initial safety tests where Gardasil was compared against a placebo, instead of using a truly benign placebo such as saline solution Merck used a placebo which was identical to the Gardasil vaccine minus only the HPV virus components.
In addition to sodium chloride and water, the placebo also contained aluminum, polysorbate 80 and sodium borate.

Aluminum is a dangerous toxic metal. Even small amounts are deposited in the brain and it has been linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease as well as memory loss and speech problems which mimic those diseases. It has also been linked to a wide variety of other health problems.
Side effects and severe allergic reactions listed for aluminum include rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, loss of appetite, muscle weakness, nausea, slow reflexes, and vomiting.

According to the Polysorbate 80 Material Safety Data Sheet, it may be carcinogenic as well as mutagenic. When injected into prepubescent rats, polysorbate 80 caused abnormal growth of reproductive organs and made the rats sterile. When used intravenously with vitamins it has been known to cause anaphylactic shock.

Sodium borate is widely known for its use as a roach pesticide. The U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health have declared sodium borate to be a dangerous poison. Listed side effects include: vomiting, collapse, coma, convulsions, low blood pressure and twitching of facial muscles, arms, hands, legs, and feet.

Many of the side effects for aluminum, polysorbate 80 and sodium borate coincide with those of the Gardasil victims who have been injured and killed by the vaccine. Thus it comes as no surprise that the side effects for the Gardasil vaccine in Merck’s trials were no greater than those of the toxic placebo they selected.

An analysis of the actual trial data for Gardasil reveals that a shocking 73.3 percent of the participants who received Gardasil acquired a new medical condition ranging from flu-like symptoms to paralysis. Almost 60% had systemic reactions. Though the “placebo” recipients had similar results, obviously no mere saline solution would have produced even a fraction of such reactions. The results would likely have been even higher if the study had lasted longer than 15 days.

2. Studies have actually shown that Gardasil and its sister vaccine Cervarix (from GlaxoSmithKline) provide no protection for women already exposed to the HPV virus and in fact present highly elevated risks for already exposed women as well as for expectant mothers.
The more sexually active a woman is, the greater the chances she will become exposed to HPV viruses. Likewise, the older a woman is the more sexual encounters she will likely have had and thus the greater the risk of HPV exposure. Information provided for the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) in May 2006 revealed that when the vaccine is administered to a woman with a dormant or harmless form of HPV, the virus can become activated, increasing the likelihood of precancerous lesions developing by a staggering 44.6 percent.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has reported 45 cases of spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage, following vaccination with Gardasil. At the time the vaccine was approved, five babies had been born with congenital birth defects after their mothers had been immunized with Gardasil, as opposed to a placebo group that had zero. Later reports put the number of birth defects in the vaccinated group closer to 40.

3. Just this month it was announced that Gardasil has been discovered to be contaminated with a substance many government health and safety agencies classify as a bio-hazard. After months of research, SANE Vax Inc. has discovered a substance many government health and safety agencies classify as a bio-hazard. SANE Vax Inc. contracted with an independent lab to test for contamination and found HPV recombinant DNA (rDNA) in 100% of the samples tested. The 13 Gardasil vials, with different lot numbers were from New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Poland, France, and three states in the U.S. All contaminating recombinant HPV DNA was firmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant in the vaccine.

4. The lack of dangers in the prescribing information furnished to doctors by Merck and the VAERS requirement that only serious and life-threatening events be reported both likely play big roles in the under-reporting of Gardasil reactions. Doctors are reluctant to report deaths and injuries from anything they administered or performed in the first place, and the lack of information and guidelines have insured that they are far less likely to report anywhere near all the adverse reactions from Gardasil.

Other factors which help skew the picture of Gardasil dangers include:

*The rate of deaths and adverse reactions are reported as a percentage of doses distributed, not doses actually administered.
*Gardasil is given in a series of three injections. Thus the number of adverse reactions per number of patients is triple the adverse events per injection.
Even with under-reporting, Gardasil causes 400% more deaths than other common vaccines. The true magnitude of Gardasil’s harm and dangers could be horrendous. Reports for other vaccine deaths and adverse reactions are estimated to represent no more than 10% of the actual totals. With Gardasil, estimates range as low as only 1%.
If 10% are reporting, there could be as many as 690 deaths and over 190,000 adverse events from HPV vaccines in theU.S.and its territories alone. If only 1% of deaths and adverse events have been reported, the numbers could be 6, 900 deaths and over 1,900,000 adverse events.
5. Behind Gardasil’s huge trail of deception is a very large and mostly hidden trail of tears. If anyone doubts that Gardasil is causing deaths, permanent injuries and devastation of mothers, fathers and other family members they should check out the SANEVAX vaccine safety site created by mothers of daughters killed and injured by HPV vaccines ( There, they will find story after story illustrating the harm HPV vaccines can cause.

Here are just two examples:
“What is Wrong with the Gardasil Girls? Amy’s Story”
“The journey of a Gardasil victim’s mother from trusting vaccines to vaccine activist”
Parents and the general public richly deserve to be told the full truth to keep that trail from leading to an ever larger ocean of suffering.

SANE Vax Inc: Vaccine Safety and Efficacy Advocates Respond to AAP

Open Letter to Dr. O. Marion Burton, president, American Academy of Pediatrics

Re: Heart-broken moms offended by statements of AAP on Gardasil®

September 16, 2011

Dear Dr. Burton:

On behalf of the thousands of parents who have either lost their perfectly healthy teenage daughters, or been left to endure the physical/mental/emotional and financial hardship of being forced to deal with the permanent disabling effects of Gardasil® vaccination, SANE Vax Inc. is offended by the thoughtless, ignorant and offensive press release issued from the office of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on September 13, 2011.

The press release criticizes the comment made by Republican presidential candidate, Michele Bachmann regarding Gardasil® side effects as ‘false statements’; and instead stated authoritatively ‘…it (Gardasil®) has an excellent safety record.’

Are you still practicing pediatrics? Physicians in the U.S. look to the AAP for guidelines yet the AAP seems to be oblivious to the latest Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. VAERS statistics clearly show that HPV Vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, have been associated with 22, 619 adverse reactions; 8,926 of those reports requiring emergency hospitalization; and 4,616 cases where the victim did not recover. Death reports stand at 102.

According to the National Vaccine Information Center, these figures reflect 1 to 10% of the vaccine injured population reporting.

The rate of anaphylaxis in young women post HPV vaccination has been found to be significantly higher by approximately – 5 to 20 fold – than those identified in comparable school-based vaccination programs. In fact, out of the 76 vaccines approved by the FDA the HPV vaccines make up 24% of the adverse injuries being reported.

The AAP is responsible for the health and welfare of our children. The Academy’s ignorance of vaccine injuries is deplorable and unacceptable.

Instead of showing compassion to victims and their families and making attempts to clarify or further investigate the possible causes for all these unexplained side effects, you simply dismissed them all by stating: ‘There is absolutely no scientific validity to this statement.’

This letter is to inform you that SANE Vax, Inc. has recently informed the FDA that the Gardasil® vaccine currently on the market has been found to be contaminated with residual recombinant HPV DNA. This hitherto unknown contaminant may have provided a scientific basis for Gardasil-induced autoimmune-based inflammatory diseases in various tissues, including inflammation in the joints and central nervous system. If the AAP is interested in this subject, perhaps using it as part of the AAP’s continuous medical education (CME) materials in place of those distributed by Merck, please read the hyperlinked documents below.

SANE Vax Inc. is wondering if Merck’s advertisements for Gardasil® in the AAP journals and cash contributions to sponsor various AAP CME programs that promote Gardasil® influenced the decision to issue the September 13 press release. In addition, is it possible that the $433,000 contribution made by Merck to the AAP might have influenced your position? Interesting to note: this was the same year the academy endorsed Merck’s HPV vaccine.

Perhaps the AAP should consult with Governor Rick Perry about disclosure.

Written by the SANE Vax Team on behalf of Gardasil® victims around the world,
Norma Erickson, President
