The Dangers of Gardasil: The Damage is Done

I am just amazed at how heartless people can be-Namely the CDC and FDA when it comes to drugs, doctors and western medicine in today's society. Before I got sick about 5 1/2 years ago, I had NO IDEA at what was going on like many people who don't have to deal with this kind of stuff on a daily basis-Now that I know, I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or if I would be happier staying in the dark.

As many know, Gardasil is a vaccine for girls that helps prevent cervical cancer. What many may not know is that along with preventing cancer, Gardasil has many adverse reactions and more and more people with the shot have been seeing those reactions.

Here are some stats on the Gardasil vaccine:

  • Over 7 million people have already received the Gardasil vaccine already
  • More then 12,000 people have reported minor medical problems such as dizziness, headaches, fainting, etc.
  • There are over 800 reports of serious side effects such as blood clots, autoimmune disorders, and even death
  • A reported 32 woman have died from the vaccine
Of course 12,000 to 800 might not seem like a lot to some people, but that number is growing and personally, I don't see the risk being 'worth while.'

Thank GOD my primary wouldn't give me this vaccination. Even though I probably wouldn't have gotten it anyway because of my medical history and current medical status, I'm glad that he was educated enough to say he refused to give that vaccine to me.

I wish I could just run up to people getting the shot and say, "NO. STOP. DON'T," but unfortunately, it's not my decision to make-I just HATE to see people suffering after they realized what happened...

Please get educated before even thinking about getting any vaccination! Do research, get family and friend's opinions, and most of all, listen to your gut. That's the biggest advocate of all when it comes to your own body.

Love and Energies.

P.s. Fun Fact: Did you know they are now going to give Gardasil, a WOMAN'S vaccination, to men now?

Yup. It's true.

That video just broke my heart and confirmed my own thoughts about Guardisil. At one point I contemplated having the vaccine myself but worried about it being such a new drug. I certainly won't let me girls have benefit or risk outweighs death.
