Deadly vaccines and the teenage girl

The Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) has urged the Health Ministry to scrap the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme for 13-year-old girls, saying the funds would be better used for cervical cancer screening.

The ministry’s RM150 million programme, which targets 300,000 schoolgirls, uses the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines. Gardasil protects against four HPV types and Cervarix against two.

“The vaccines do not protect against 36 other cancer-related HPV types,” said Idris. He added that the side effects of HPV vaccinations were serious and could be fatal.

Cholesterol and Greed

Unfortunately for many, money makes the world go around. Truth, safety and efficacy  certainly take second fiddle to the almighty dollar.

The Estrogen Cow

Understanding the essence of the medical-pharmaceutical establishment, I was taken by

surprise at how swiftly and how easily the establishment turned on one of its own sacred

cows — estrogen.

You know the story of estrogen: for years it was touted as a protector of women against

cancer, against aging, against cardiovascular disease, and against osteoporosis.

The drug companies have been fighting tooth and nail for decades to refute and suppress

all the research that proves that estrogen actually causes the very conditions it is supposed

to prevent.

Now, so very suddenly, the establishment freely admits the harmful effects of estrogen.

Just last July, no less than the Journal of the American Association announced the

discontinuation of a long term research study on estrogen when it became undeniable that

the women in this study developed an increased risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer.

It’s not surprising that they discontinued the study when the results were opposite the

researcher’s intended findings, but what is noteworthy is that instead of hushing it up,

they actually published it for all the world to see.

Now, as an extension of that admission of estrogen danger, the Food and Drug

Administration is actually requiring labels on all hormone replacement therapy products

warning of the risk for heart disease, stroke and cancer.

What is going on here?

I had always assumed that the pharmaceutical industry would fight to the death to protect

its estrogen-related profits.

What I think is happening is that the drug companies have decided to burn this candle

from both ends.

The estrogen bandwagon has so much momentum, (with so many doctors conditioned to

prescribe estrogen to every woman who experiences her first hot flash or who has any

concerns about osteoporosis) that nothing will push this gravy train off course for years

and years to come.

Another good example to illustrate how people fall for propaganda, and how drug

companies change their tune for profit, is the cholesterol farce.

The increasing cost of healthcare

One woman shared her story to The Star newspaper on how her family had to pay almost RM60,000 in medical expenses for their 87-year-old mother who was hospitalised in a private hospital for 35 days. Their mother was in the Critical Care Unit for a week, was moved to a single-bed room and did not have any surgery, yet the bill was crazily high and the details on the bill were vague. The worse was when she was told they were charged RM85 for any doctor who came to visit their mother even when it was supposed to be a routine check-up. This also included a nutritionist which the woman found unnecessary as her mother didn’t really need one. Even a nurse’s visit would be charged, especially if their mother rang the nurse’s bell after 9.30pm.
