The co-inventor of the technology enabling the HPV vaccines, Ian Frazer, states:
“Through sexual activity, most of us will get infected with the genital papillomaviruses that can cause cancer. Fortunately, most of us get rid of them between 12 months to five years later without even knowing we’ve had the infection. Even if the infection persists, only a few individuals accumulate enough genetic mistakes in the virus-infected cell for these to acquire the properties of cancer cells”. (1)
So Ian Frazer has acknowledged that the risk of cancer is very low… I find it astonishing that the HPV vaccine is being pushed upon adolescents around the world. I wonder how many of these young people and their parents are being properly informed of Ian Frazer’s statement above?
For information, here’s a link to a letter I’ve forwarded to Chris Mitchell, Editor-in-Chief of The Australian newspaper, on this topic: “Is universal HPV vaccination necessary?”: http://users.on.net/~peter.hart/Is_universal_HPV_vaccination_necessary.pdf
As I note in my letter, I am unconvinced of the need for universal HPV vaccination and suspicious of the motives for its promotion.
We need the quality media to step up to the plate and investigate this matter.
