Gardasil Ingredient caused sterility in lab rats

An ingredient of the Gardasil HPV vaccination has known carcinogenic and sterility affects in lab rats

Know as Polysorbrate 80 or Tween 80 it is a food additive that enables solubility of flavoring oils with water and is used widely - however few know the effects of this chemical when injected directly into the body.

Polysorbate 80 injected into prepubescent rats caused a rapid growth of reproductive organs, but growth was abnormal and the rats were sterile, unable to have children. When used intravenously with vitamins it has been known to cause anaphylactic shock. According to the Polysorbate 80 MSDS, it may be a carcinogenic, (cause cancer), as well as a mutagenic, (birth defects).”

Merck must have known this - or should have known this but included it in its vaccination anyway.

Few Doctors understand the repercussions of this on their teenage patients and continue blindly to believe in the rightness of the vaccine

Given that the recent reactions to the melamine contaminated milk scandal which caused 4 infants to die and thousands more to be in severe pain with kidney stones – allowing a vaccination which has already killed 21 young women and seriously affected thousands more to remain on the market is shocking.

In other articles written by women concerned at what is happening to young girls and Merck’s dodgy science along with government and health authorities inaction it is revealed that Gardasil is anything but a safe vaccination for your self or your daughters

Merck's case studies for the HPV vaccine (paid for by Merck) included only 1200 test subjects under the age of 16, and the drug was only tested for an average of 18 months. This is not nearly enough time to test for the long-term side effects of a vaccine that will be used on young girls just entering adolescence.

The Gardasil vaccine contains Polysorbate 80 (also known as Tween 80), a known carcinogen. In addition, this ingredient has been shown to have estrogenic alterative effects and cause reproductive disturbances in rats:

Previous studies…have shown that Polysorbate 80 administered by intraperitoneal injection to neonatal female rats on days 4-7 after birth produced estrogenic effects including earlier vaginal opening, prolongation of the estrus cycle and persistent vaginal estrus. Some of these effects were evident many weeks after cessation of administration of Polysorbate 80 [Gajdova et al. Food Chem Toxicol 31(3):183-90 (1993)].

We don't know what those estrogenic effects would be on the developing bodies of pre-adolescent girls. The statistics being reported to the Vaccine Adverse Effect Response System (VAEECS) are already troubling:

"Because Merck only studied Gardasil in fewer than 1200 girls under age 16 in prelicensure trials, it is critical that doctors and parents be made aware of the nature of the initial adverse event reports coming into VAERS and that they report serious health problems after vaccination when they occur," said NVIC President Barbara Loe Fisher. "There are twice as many children collapsing after getting a Gardasil vaccination compared to those getting a Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis) vaccination. There have been reports of facial paralysis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. And doctors who give Gardasil in combination with other vaccines are basically conducting an experiment on their young patients because Merck has not published any safety data for simultaneous vaccination with any vaccine except hepatitis B vaccine"

and again ….

In the same section of toxicological information it states that it may cause reproductive effects, it may cause cancer, and may be a mutagenic, (change the genetics), in animals but this is followed up with the statement, no human data found. Well, unless they use people as lab rats, they won't find this data until it is used on humans to an extent to present this data.

According to PubMed.Gov a service of the U.S. Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health, a report shows that neonatal rats were injected with small doses of polysorbate 80 and the results were major effects on the reproductive organs of the rats, resulting in infertility. (see the PubMed link below). Considering this is a component of the Gardasil HPV vaccine, (not to mention other vaccines), and they are recommending this to girls at prepubescent ages, there should be some concern to any parent that this could possibly lead to infertility in your child.
As this vaccine has been made mandatory of on young girls in the US its interesting to note that early on in the piece politicians are address issues of liability

An early version of the Virginia house bill contained a clause addressing liability issues "if a female who is inoculated with the HPV vaccine becomes incapable of naturally conceiving a healthy child carried to live birth or experiences impaired fertility as a result of the HPV vaccine".

Read rest of article here

"Since June 2006, when the HPV vaccine Gardasil was approved by the Food and Drug Administration, there have been 28 reported cases in which pregnant women miscarried after receiving the vaccine".

There are NO long term studies done on the damage this vaccination could do to young women's reproductive health – none. This is alarming – our young women are in essence guinea pigs for this new vaccination

see the lab report here

see the Gardisal ingredient list (at bottom of document) here

Meanwhile in Australia side affects are appearing with Australian authorities and the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Authority) looking into whether there are links between Gardasil and the development of pancreatitis after several young women developed the disease after their Gardasil shots

In January 2008, Channel 7 analyzed TGA data from a FOI request which showed 681 adverse reactions with 162 girls and women not recovered. Girls between 14 and 17 had not recovered for an average of 165 days. On July 4, 2008, the TGA published new figures of just over 1,000 adverse reactions to-date that had been reported. But they did not release in depth details of what these reactions were and, importantly, whether or not the girls and women had recovered.”

 read the blog set up for Australian women to talk about their experience here

In a similar article

Dr Das and his colleagues said an extensive investigation could find no other cause for the pancreatitis and while a coincidental illness could not be ruled out, "neither can HPV vaccination be excluded as a potential cause".

In 2007 when Gardasil was first administerd to young girls in Australia ...

….”Sacred Heart Girls' College principal Christopher Dalton said today that 26 girls were taken to the school sick bay after injections"

There is no follow up on these girls to determine their current state of health given that thousands of girls in the US are still unwell with symptoms of fatigue, incredible headaches, paralysis, stinging eyes and consistent vomiting - most doctors and practise nurses continually refuse to see a link

In another alarming article – American writer Cynthia A. Janak concerned at the alarming numbers of healthy young girls dying and experiencing deliberating illness has uncovered some research that suggests to her  that given the ingredients within the Gardasil vaccination - that this vaccination NOT be given to any girl with a family history of allergies

She says

Do you know how it is when you have a gut feeling that just won't quit? It is like the itch you just cannot scratch that gets worse with time. It is very annoying. Well, I was finally able to scratch that itch and all my efforts have finally paid off…… I have been researching Polysorbate 80 for some time now because I had a gut feeling that there is something to this chemical. I have been doing the same for Histidine because Gardasil is the first vaccine that is using this chemical. I knew that the addition of Histidine had something to do with what we are seeing with Gardasil. Here are my findings.

I just received this letter and thought it applicable to share here - please note that there are 10 reported cases of adverse reaction to Gardasil in NZ - its starting - parents/mothers please do the research read the articles here you are playing Russian roulette with your daughters health

Thank you for your email of 29 September 2008 about monitoring of adverse events following vaccination with Gardasil.

The New Zealand Pharmacovigilance’s Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (CARM) is the agency that monitors adverse effects of vaccinations and medicines in New Zealand. The Immunisation Handbook 2006 requires vaccinators to report all clinically significant events following immunisation to CARM. Adverse events in New Zealand following the Gardasil immunisation are reported to CARM.

As at August 2008, CARM had received 10 minor reports of adverse reactions following the Gardasil vaccination. Most reports involved injection site pain while a small number of patients had reported general malaise with symptoms such as fatigue and nausea. These reports are then anonymised and sent to the World Health Organization’s International Monitoring Centre database, where they are collated with other reports from countries around the world. This information helps towards international monitoring of immunisations.
In the United States, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) manage the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) which monitors the safety of vaccines after they are licensed. VAERS receives reports of adverse events (possible side effects) that occur after people receive vaccines. These reports help the CDC and FDA make sure vaccines are safe, and that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.

Anyone can report a health problem in VAERS. Just because a health problem is reported to VAERS does not mean it was caused by a vaccine. Usually, only scientific research can determine if a vaccine really caused the health problem, or if it was just a coincidence.

Since the vaccine was licensed in America in June 2006, over 16 million doses have been distributed in America. At 30 June 2008, VAERS received 9,749 reports of adverse events after Gardasil vaccination. Only 6 percent of these reports were serious events, and included 21 reports of death following Gardasil vaccination. Twelve of these reports contained the level of information adequate for further analysis. After careful review of those reports, the CDC could not establish any causal relationship between vaccination and death. The CDC was unable to obtain any patient-identifying information relating to the remaining nine reports of death (of which four were from outside America), so it was unable to confirm any relationship between the vaccine and these deaths. You can view latest reports by the FDA online at (

I trust this information is useful.

Merck In its own words lays out Gardasil

Patient Information about
GARDASIL® (pronounced “gard-Ah-sill”)
Generic name: [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine,
Read this information with care before getting GARDASIL∗. You (the person getting GARDASIL) will
need 3 doses of the vaccine. It is important to read this leaflet when you get each dose. This leaflet does
not take the place of talking with your health care provider about GARDASIL.
GARDASIL is a vaccine (injection/shot) that is used for girls and women 9 through 26 years of age to help
protect against the following diseases caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV):
• Cervical cancer
• Vulvar and vaginal cancers
• Genital warts
• Abnormal and precancerous cervical, vaginal, and vulvar lesions
o The diseases listed above have many causes, and GARDASIL only protects against
diseases caused by certain kinds of HPV (called Type 6, Type 11, Type 16, and Type 18).
Most of the time, these 4 types of HPV are responsible for the diseases listed above.
o GARDASIL cannot protect you from a disease that is caused by other types of HPV, other
viruses, or bacteria.
o GARDASIL does not treat HPV infection.
o You cannot get HPV or any of the above diseases from GARDASIL.

What important information about GARDASIL should I know?
You should continue to get routine cervical cancer screening.
GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone who gets the vaccine.
GARDASIL will not protect against HPV types that you already have.
• You may still benefit from GARDASIL if you do not already have all four vaccine types of HPV.

Who should not get GARDASIL?
You should not get GARDASIL if you have, or have had:
• an allergic reaction after getting a dose of GARDASIL.
a severe allergic reaction to yeast, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, polysorbate

Drug companies have done many dodgey illegal deals - our young women are to precious to us to un critically jepordise their health/lives with another dodgey vaccine - this time - one that could irrepairably damage her ability to have children in the future - the risk is simply to great to gamble -

given the scamble to 'protect' consumer safety re the milk scandal - I think we owe it to our young girls to be as equaly vigilant given that this vaccine has killed 21 and rising

watch this and see just how dodgey big pharma are

 The controversy surrounding this vaccination for young girls and young women is growing

Parents are confused as to what to do – the fear of cervical cancer is the motivator but one must be informed I have gathered all this information so that  you don't have to 

In June 2008 Judicial watch  detailed the approval process and side effects along with safety concerns and the marketing practices of what it is calling a large scale public health experiment

You can download the 25 page PDF report here

Executive Summary

“In May 2007, Judicial Watch submitted a request to the FDA under the Freedom
of Information Act for all records concerning Merck’s new anti-HPV vaccine, Gardasil.
After Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in October 2007 to compel record production, the
FDA finally released four sets of documents, the last in June 2008. These records detail
the development and expedited approval of Gardasil. The documents include patent and
licensing memoranda, test reports for the vaccine, and the final briefing document on
Gardasil submitted to the FDA in April 2006, one month before the vaccine was
approved. The FDA also produced 8,864 VAERS reports. Judicial Watch uncovered a
transcript of Merck’s May 18, 2006, meeting with the Vaccines and Related Biological
Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), at which the vaccine received a unanimous
vote of approval.

Here are some of the highlights of the report

At this time, it is unknown whether Gardasil may have long term effects on
fertility. Since the vaccine was only released in 2006, it could be years before anyone
knows its long term effects. Merck’s only fertility tests were conducted on rats…. the rats were monitored only through a single fertility cycle.

Merck acknowledged that, “ . . . it is not known whether Gardasil can
cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women or if it can affect reproductive

The vaccine is still in the testing stages (final report due September 30, 2009), but it is already being administered to thousands of young girls and women

Gardasil is a prophylactic, preventative vaccine and will not treat pre-existing
HPV infection. It is not a cancer vaccine or cure.

Gardasil is marketed as a vaccine that prevents cancer, but it “ . . . has not
been evaluated for the potential to cause carcinogenicity or genotoxicity

The vaccine is created from highly purified L1 proteins taken from actual HPV types. It is a
recombinant vaccine, which means that it is made from genetically engineered material
taken from HPV, but it does not contain the live virus.

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine found
that, “ . . . there was no clear evidence that vaccination altered the course of HPV-16 or
HPV-18 infection that was present before administration of the first dose.”

Women who already have the virus without knowing it could suffer massive
outbreaks of genital warts or abnormal precancerous lesions, both of which require
extensive treatment.

An additional testing report shows that Merck tested Gardasil against an
aluminum-containing placebo. While most placebos are saline based, the FDA allowed
Merck to use a placebo with an undisclosed amount of aluminum in it. Gardasil itself
contains 225 mcg of aluminum. Aluminum can cause many serious problems including
temporary and permanent nerve damage. Using a reactive aluminum-containing placebo
instead of a non-reactive saline base can make vaccines seem safer than they may
actually be.

Merck scientists not only did not bother to study cancer, they do not even know
whether their own vaccine is carcinogenic. In a report to the FDA on testing protocol,
Merck wrote that “Gardasil has not been evaluated for the potential to cause
carcinogenicity or genotoxicity.

in its briefing to the FDA Merck reported, “It is not known whether Gardasil can cause fetal
harm when administered to a pregnant woman.”28

They reported that 27% of pregnant women experienced adverse reactions, and the VAERS reports show 45 cases of miscarriages, or spontaneous abortions, often within weeks of receiving the Gardasil

Merck’s June 2006 briefing to the FDA says, “It is not known whether vaccine antigens or
antibodies induced by the vaccine are excreted in human milk,” and “A higher number of
breastfeeding infants (n=6) whose mothers received Gardasil had acute respiratory
illnesses within 30 days
.”31 This number is three times higher than that of the placebo

While young women occasionally get cervical cancer, it is far
more common in women in their late forties. The average age of a cervical cancer patient
is forty-eight years. Keeping this in mind, it could easily be decades before anyone truly
knows if the Gardasil vaccine prevents cervical cancer.

The VAERS reports document that there have been 38 reports of Guillain-Barre
Syndrome among girls who received the Gardasil vaccine. Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a
potentially devastating illness that attacks the nervous system and can result in paralysis.

HPV infection and cervical cancer should not be conflated: cervical cancer will
not develop in most women who are infected with even a high-risk strain of HPV.56
Based on marketing and lobbying campaigns, as well as the majority of “health news”
media reporting, it is unlikely that parents of pre-teens and young women are aware of
these important distinctions.

 Hi Jenese, thankyou for you investigative work on Gardasil.  I too have been discovering much about this vaccine.  I was so concerned I have set up a website for parents and girls to access credible information which our MOH is knowingly withholding.  I have one of your earlier articles "what TV One didn't tell you" on my site.  I have since been asked to write a piece for Uncensored Magazine of my journey of discovery with this "dirty" vaccine.  It is also on my site.  Could I ask that you spread the word about as the fall out will begin with these girls, particularly after the second jab.  Girls and young women who are maimed by Gardasil need to have a support network to enable them to not battle this on their own and I'm hoping my site could be used for this purpose also.
