Cervical cancer vaccine victims urge permanent halt to vaccination

TOKYO, August 24, 2013. KYODO.

Eight teenage sufferers of severe side effects of cervical cancer vaccines and their parents called on Health Minister Norihisa Tamura on Friday, to permanently end the Government’s subsidy program for the vaccines.

The schoolgirls aged between 14 and 18, including four in wheelchairs, and their parents, are members of the Nationwide Liaison Association of Cervical Cancer Vaccine Victims and Parents. They made the request in a meeting with the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare, at the Ministry Building, Association Chief Mika Matsufuji told a news conference.

Sotaro Sato, a medical doctor who has examined many cervical vaccine victims, told the news conference that the convulsions, inability to walk, and involuntary movements of the hands and toes were caused by encephalomyelitis, or inflammation of the brain and spinal cord.

“Cervical cancer vaccines, which are chemically bound to special types of adjuvants, often trigger encephalomyelitis,” he said.

“since the vaccine caused autoantibodies against the brain’s neuronal fibers to be produced in many cases, they have triggered demyelinating disorders,” he said, adding, “They have also induced many cases of cerebral vascultitis”.

In a cerebral Vasculitis, the body’s immune system attacks blood vessels in the brain, often leading to brain hemorrhage”, said Sato, who runs a hospital in Osaki, Miyagi Prefecture.***

I wonder if The New Zealand Coroner, Judge Ian Smith, will be told the findings of a Japanese doctor given at a news conference a few days ago? After all, many of the Japanese victims had exactly the same symptoms as Jasmine, and other New Zealand girls whose parents have ALL had the doors slammed on their backsides, as they walked out of the doctor’s surgery.

What is the difference between New Zealand and Japan?

First up, Japan seems to be one of the few countries where parents are still listened to by doctors, and scientists don’t appear to have been bought out by Merck. Parents in Japan have not had quite the same problems as New Zealand parents have when they girls have reacted to Gardasil. As a society, Japan is very different. While the Japanese are generally compliant, honesty and integrity are held in much higher regard than in New Zealand, and parents are not “flicked off” by doctors, there, to the same extent as they are in New Zealand.

The Japanese medical profession doesn’t treat childhood vaccines like a compulsory religion, so there is not the intense pressure to vaccinate like there is in New Zealand. Japanese parents are taken seriously, and have contacted each other, organised themselves and they are determined to get something done to have the Government halt all HPV vaccinations.  Both Gardasil and Cervarix have caused reactions in Japan.  Remember too, that Japan also banned MMR I, and MMR II, because in their populations, both resulted in unacceptable reactions.  That fact alone will result in some people saying something like, "That must mean there is something about Japanese genes that means they are "susceptible".....".  Except for one thing.  There is nothing different to what is happening in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand, than there is happening in Japan in terms of reactions.  What is different, is the attitude of the medical profession.

In New Zealand, when a child has a reaction to a vaccine, children and parents are rarely listened to. Excuses abound, and it requires monumental determination to get anywhere. What’s worse, is that we KNOW there are children in New Zealand who have had serious reactions to Gardasil, who are now on the streets.  More on that later....

On 7th August, 2012, Rhonda Renata went for a haircut  to look respectable for the Coroner’s hearing on 8 – 9th August 2012. She was sitting in the chair talking to the hairdresser about who was going to be giving evidence, and the testing results etc. Leaning on the reception desk listening was a young girl looking very upset. She spoke to Rhonda and told her that she was very scared, because she had had two Gardasil vaccines, and while she hadn’t had warts after them, everything else Rhonda described as symptoms that her daughter Jasmine had, was what was happening to her. She also said that her mother wouldn’t listen to her, and she didn’t know what to do. Rhonda was so beside herself, she rang me up in tears…. What happened to the girl? She couldn’t find out.

Over the next week, as Rhonda spoke to more people, yet more  cases of problems after Gardasil, came out of the woodwork. Girls in the Wellington region “suddenly” developing seizures. And their parents being told that of course, they aren’t related to Gardasil. Girls whose periods just… stopped. Girls complaining of headaches… inability to sleep, nausea, extra heart beats... incredible arm and leg pain... the list just gets longer all the time.

And then, there are all the girls complaining of massive “pain” throughout their bodies. “Hypochondriacs” one and all, appears to be the view of most New Zealand doctors.

I caught up with the family of one of the girls who first complained of intense whole body pain amongst a constellation of symptoms, only to find that she was now a street kid, in a drug and alcohol induced stupor.She hated her family and the doctor because they couldn't help her.  Only street drugs bury the pain, but they also bury her brain.Yet, when her parents went to CYPS for help, they were told that they were bad parents –  of a model kid who before Gardasil, had no previous social, behavioural or academic issues.

Parents of a vaccine injured girl in the heart of the North Island told me of their adolescents' friends who were now having horrendous issues post Gardasil, which are, just the “usual teenagers going off the rails” issues – according to their family doctors. A few of those children were now with gangs and on the streets. Never anything to do with vaccines, least of all Gardasil! .... Yet guess what? The kids who hadn’t had Gardasil, weren’t having the same sorts of issues. Yes, they were having the usual stupid brainless NZ adolescent peer rubbish relating to alcohol etc, but none of the pain, the headaches, chest pains, heart issues, brain-fog and gut aches.

While the Renata family waits an eternity for a coroner’s decision on the case of Jasmine Renata, it’s just as well for New Zealand girls that there is such a low Gardasil vaccine uptake in this country.

Not that that helps the girls who have already received the vaccine. Particularly those girls who have not been helped by the medical profession. Their parents are distraught and broken people - their hopes for their children dashed. 

One of the big problems in New Zealand – which Japan does NOT appear to suffer from, is that the medical profession here has preconceived ideas of what are “normal” issues when it comes to adolescents, and utter disregard for parents who say, "But this is NOT my child!"... Japanese doctors don't do that.

Nine years ago, I took an adolescent who was living with us, to a doctor because she had health issues, but didn’t know where to go with them. I could plainly see it wasn’t an adolescent issue. I’d sat back and watched, and this was different. A local doctor, supposedly very good with the elderly, listened to her with a pan face, and then told her to “pull your thumb out, your socks up, and get on with life.” The girl and I were shocked.

The appointment was immediately transferred through to my (non-NZ) doctor.  We sat down with him, detailing the story again, and he took the girl seriously. Blood tests then revealed that the young girl had hemochromatosis, so the whole family had to be tested and counselled.

What is it like today in 2013? The telephones tell me the same thing as in 1987. Mention the phrase, “it started after the vaccine” and the eyes glaze over, and the trite words run off the tongue like froth off a sheep dog's tongue while rounding up stubborn renegade sheep.

At least the Japanese doctors have listened and are attempting to investigate AND find out why. Which is more than you can say for the New Zealand sheep dogs.
