GARDISIL® Vaccine May be Linked to 3 Deaths from ALS (Amytropic Lateral Sclerosis): More Public Health Data Needed on Gardisil®'s Potential toTrigger ALS
by HELEN BOREL,RN,PhD
THIS IS A MEDICAL ALERT: Some of the over 7 million Girls injected with GARDISIL® (Human Papillomvirus vaccine)(HPV), a Merck biological, may have in common with a famous Baseball Player,Lou Gehrig, the tragic, neuro-wasting disease, Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
ALS ultimately suffocates the mentally alert patient. Also known as "Lou Gehrig’s Disease" after it killed his athletic agility; ALS first attacks the arms & legs. Soon speech & breathing are compromised. Then Dysphagia (trouble swallowing) sets in, making normal food and liquid intake impossible. Which leads to more neuropathic wasting and death, a death by choking...why many such patients wish to choose a more merciful manner of death.
Ominously, there have been 3 reported deaths of young girls who contracted ALS within a very near-time frame of receiving the so-called cervical-cancer-vaccine-prophylaxis. But so far, Merck’s spokes-scientists deny a connection.
DESPITE THE POSSIBLE ALS-CONNECTION, GlaxoSmithKline just got FDA Approval to sell its Cervarix® for HPV-Prevention in Girls; while Merck is FDA-approved to Expand its Gardisil® Market to Include Young Men and Boys with Genital Warts Hazardously, in this pharmaceutical world of unknowns, now GlaxoSmithKline just received FDA approval to market Cervarix for the same anti-cervical-cancer purpose. And the FDA has approved the marketing to physicians of Gardisil® for the indication of genital warts in young men and boys.
A Moratorium on HPV and Genital Warts vaccine prophylaxis is Warranted until scientists are convinced by further laboratory and/or clinical trials that it doesn't incite the killer Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis Before we start forcing these questionable vaccines on pubescent females and males, we need to do further clinical tests to rule out any connection between the delivery of Gardisil® to these youngsters and the emergence of Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis. Making this concern public and announcing the three deaths that occurred due to ALS, a mortality-dealing neurologic condition possibly triggered by Gardisil® vaccination, could encourage other cases in affected families to be brought to the attention of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
They would then alert physicians to ALS as a possible hazard, to provide informed consent with this added new knowledge about this dire risk and to weigh the risk of cervical cancer (a treatable condition) against the breath-robbing neurologic downhill course of ALS, about which doctors can do nothing.
I welcome readers comments and any specific information you may have that may add more light to this subject. I often note that many Rx products are brought to market prematurely (in Beta form, if you will), before all the kinks have been worked out in research and development, in animal studies, and in clinical trials...unfortunately, leaving the sick general public to suffer untoward consequences, some peramanent disabilities and pain, some mamings, some deaths.
In the rush to market, especially Rx products that are not urgent, open invitations to expensive personal injury and medical negligence lawsuits are implied.
The above is a serious subject because it reports on neurologic trauma and death with a truly suffering and frightening last breath.
However, I love to write on a wide range of topics, often unrelated to each other, some highly informative, some fictional/satirical. So, I invite you to visit my other hubpages such as BOREL SATIRE: FREUD (<--google this), http://hubpages.com/hub/PSYCH-NEW-YORK, and my series BOREL OPINION COLUMN. Your comments are always welcome.
