In Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed Helen Lobato argues that we do not know whether HPV vaccines will decrease the incidence of cervical cancer. What is emerging, however, is evidence of their harmful effects. In 2006, the experimental HPV vaccination program began and there have been at least 315 associated deaths and more than 50,000 adverse events following HPV vaccination.
Gardasil was fast-tracked through the FDA, a process usually reserved for life threatening diseases to fill an unmet and urgent medical need. Improved living conditions had already reduced the incidence of cervical cancer significantly in Western countries. So why is the HPV vaccine so heavily promoted in Australia, a country with one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world?
Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed documents the early history of cervical cancer and tracks its progression from a disease of obscurity to one of mainstream prominence. It includes the stories of vaccinated girls and boys who remain ill after receiving a vaccine purported to prevent a disease they were most unlikely to get. It records the voices of dissenters and resisters who call for an inquiry into HPV vaccines approved for use after a relentless propaganda campaign promoting a vaccine against a virus that many had never heard of.
This in-depth investigation exposes cracks in the pharmaceutical industry and highlights the problems that arise when government regulators and corporate interests are prioritised ahead of patient safety, independent science and common sense.

...Attempts to raise public awareness have been stonewalled. It shouldn’t be a big surprise that the yapping jackals of big-pharma-controlled media are not much help here. Helen Lobato presents an alternative theory of what causes cervical cancer at the end of this book. It involves some long words but still makes more sense to me than the theory that we are all vaccine-deficient. My thumb is UP.Tim Boyd, Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts

This book is not a screed against vaccination. Instead Lobato provides an important case study in what Big Pharma has done to increase profits while putting others at risk. Her account is primarily about what happened in Australia. Because the problem is global, she includes data from many countries. Merck, on whom she focuses, is an American based company. I see no reason to doubt her account, but even if you disagree with her, you need to know and address her concerns about this drug and the way in which international power brokers threaten all of us.Marilyn Brady, Me, You, and Books
Lobato details the flawed science, egotism, Big Pharma profiteering, political manouvering and media failures behind this dangerous HPV vaccine that was never properly tested. She calls on concerned citizens to publicize the truth, and for moratoriums, independent inquiries and compensation to be put in place. A powerful rallying cry.Ruth Parnell, Nexus Magazine
