On June 29, 2006, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended the drug for young girls from ages 11-12 with a doctor’s discretion for those within 10- 9.
In an article on the efficacy and safety of Gardasil, the CDC underlined that “there were some cases of fainting (even epilepsy) after vaccination” Rather than judge its efficacy by itself and what it does on cancer, they compared its efficacy with placebo. The CDC again reiterated below their article that since the vaccine was licensed, there have been 13 reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) amongst its takers. That would have rung the alarm bells already if people were vigilant.
On December 3, 2007 News.com in its Australian online version revealed that the Australian Department of Health and Ageing has confirmed the cautionary statement of the CDC by stating: “MORE than 17 girls a week have been experiencing adverse reactions such as seizures and numbness after taking cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil since it became widely distributed in April”. While they know this because they keep records, Third world countries will be nescient since they don’t keep those records.
For the young girls who have not yet taken that vaccine and for Africans who always serve as the dumping ground for at risk drugs, I want you to be careful. Our African parents seldom had cancer. Some have argued that because of the absence of monitors or equipments it was perhaps coined with another disease or witchcraft (as with most unknown diseases). Yet there is a weakness in that theory because at least one would have still seen those same symptoms today. More so, the rate of cancer in the West is far above what we have in Africa.
In 2007, New York had the highest rate of Cancer patients in the US according to American Cancer Society figures. The question that arises is can cancer be prevented. Just like with any man-made cause, any cancer that is caused by man-made factors could be prevented completely. For example; those patients who are casualties of smoking, drunkenness, drug addition, obesity, lack of exercise and poor nutritive habits could have saved their lives if they took control of their lives earlier on.
I once read that cancer is caused by excess sun rays. So what is this tanning thing that women sit and let their skin get darker under the sun? Most women miss this proverb: “every young frog is a beauty queen to the mother”. That is because beauty is relative. If a man wants you to change your body type and structure first before he falls in love with you or marry you then he is not good enough for you; and vice versa. If you are single, just make yourself available and you will have enough pretenders to mingle with you. Stop giving yourself diseases just for a moment of happiness.
Just like with many diseases, if you avoid acting like a human chimney, getting high, drinking like a bee, if you apply the Australian food pyramid, exercising properly and do not live a synthetic lifestyle you will naturally live longer without pain.
Third World countries have to be forewarned to desist from eating the cancerous chicken and pig feet sold to them from Europe. Look at the pigmies of Mouloundu who live more (not only) on vegetation than meat they live longer and healthier. Compare those of New York where oxygen is being sapped away from them and Carbon dioxide emitted to them, live at risk of cancer.
Above all, we must pray regularly to God who gives good health. If you do all what you suppose to do to be healthy, God will do his part. Though one cannot stay without getting sick forever because of the sinful nature that itself attracts diseases, yet we can control and limit its occurrences. I wish you all good health and long life.
Until then, Beware of Gardasil!
