TWO EUROPEAN GIRLS DIE FOLLOWING GARDASIL SHOTS

PinkTwo young girls in the Europe have died following the administration of the Gardasil vaccine for the sexually transmitted disease known as "HPV" that is associated with cervical cancer.

Following the vaccine's debut and immediate crush of marketing to encourage children as young as 11 to get the shot, the lead researcher, Dr. Diane Harper, issued a statement strongly recommending against vaccinating young girls.

LEBANON, N.H. — A lead researcher who spent 20 years developing the vaccine for humanpapilloma virus says the HPV vaccine is not for younger girls, and that it is "silly" for states to be mandating it for them.

Not only that, she says it's not been tested for effectiveness in younger girls, and administering the vaccine to girls as young as 9 may not even protect them at all. And, in the worst-case scenario, instead of serving to reduce the numbers of cervical cancers within 25 years, such a vaccination crusade actually could cause the numbers to go up.

"Giving it to 11-year-olds is a great big public health experiment," said Diane M. Harper, who is a scientist, physician, professor and the director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire.

"It is silly to mandate vaccination of 11- to 12-year-old girls There also is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue."

Internationally recognized as a pioneer in the field, Harper has been studying HPV and a possible vaccine for several of the more than 100 strains of HPV for 20 years - most of her adult life.

All of her trials have been with subjects ages 15 to 25. In her own practice, Harper believes the ideal way of administering the new vaccine is to offer it to women ages 18 and up. At the time of their first inoculation, they should be tested for the presence of HPV in their system.

The FDA in America approved the vaccine for girls as young as nine. The European Medicine Agency reports, "No causal relationship has been established...." And so the vaccine will continue to be available.

God save the princesses. Our condolences to the families.
