Video outlines untold dangers of Gardasil vaccine
A video produced by Jenny Thompson, director of The Health Sciences Institute, outlines the myths and untold dangers surrounding the vaccine Gardasil. Gardasil, manufactured by Merck & Co., is marketed as a preventive treatment for girls beginning at age 9 to protect them from cervical cancer. The drug actually targets the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease that can cause genital warts and precancerous lesions on the cervix. However, Thompson says, the drugmaker is pushing to make the drug mandatory for school-age girls, and minimizes the dangerous side effects experienced by many girls after receiving the vaccine.

Thompson has served as Director of the HSI for 11 years, after a brief career in the health care industry. In that job, she says, she realized that hospitals worked to turnover patients as quickly as possible, “without killing them.” She says she saw that the health care industry all too often cares more for its bottom line than for health. The HSI is a membership-based organization that provides information about alternative medicines, and works to provide warnings about dangerous drugs and medical practices to its members.
