I'll bet your first guess is right: they eliminate links in case they're spam.

I suspect it's because your email was at the top of the letter. Their rules state they will delete any attempts to provide personal information (addresses, emails etc). 

11-20-2012 04:09 AM
Taximom5 Maybe they have a policy against links?

Try again, this time with the body of the letter copied and pasted instead of linked. Let's see how they edit that...

Hi Turquesa - I've read Chapter 19...it's pretty shocking isn't it?  Shocking to discover how power and influence is being abused in our so-called 'liberal democracies'...  When are the people responsible for this exploitation going to be brought to account?  How can this happen when the foxes are in charge of the chicken coop?

 

Also, I tried to post the link to my letter plus comments on the UK's NHS HPV Vaccination webpage.  The NHS ironically describes itself as "NHS choices Your health, your choices".

 

My comments were published on the NHS's HPV Vaccination webpage - minus the link to my letter...  You can see how my comments were edited here: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/hpv-vaccination/pages/introduction.aspx?WT.mc_id=090805

 

So I was censored.  And this is happening in the UK... It is downright scary.

I keep meaning to get the book. Last year I went to a talk given by Louise Kuo Habakus and it was very good.

11-19-2012 08:13 AM
Turquesa Oh my goodness, ElizHart! I'm in the process of reading about exactly that! Get your hands on the book Vaccine Epidemic, ed. Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland. Chapter 19 gives a thorough and well-cited account of what went into the approval process. It may not answer all of your questions, but it's a good start.

Hi Turquesa and Taximom5 - thanks for your responses.  As Taximom5 suggested, I've initiated a thread titled "Is universal HPV vaccination necessary?" - although I can't find it now (?!)  Maybe it's being moderated?  (I didn't include the whole letter in the post as I had problems with formatting, but included the link to the letter of course.)

 

Turquesa, the letter hasn't been published, but I'm 'self-publishing' by circulating the letter myself.  I'm interested to look further into how the HPV vaccine was fast-tracked on to the vaccination schedule.

Oh sure. But I'm not worried about diseases enough to rush out and be fully vaccinated for every little thing. I'll take my chances with good lifestyle choices. So far I've been rewarded!

Brilliant letter!

 

May I suggest that you start a new thread "Is Universal HPV Vaccination Necessary," with a copy of the letter in its entirety as the first post?

She's had the chickenpox already, and  although uncomfortable nothing unusual or untoward happened (just like when I got it in the 70s). I credit her smooth recovery to rest, diet, and supplements.

 

I think good lifestyle choices stack the deck in your favour health wise - but they are not magic bullets or anything.

That has very little to do with human papilloma virus, which is transmitted through sexual contact.

Even assuming all that is unquestionably true, which I do not, 80% IS "the vast majority".

According to http://www.aarda.org/q_and_a.php, 20% of the population suffers from autoimmune disease. Some estimate that 75% of those are women.

So let's not try to pretend that "the vast majority of people have normal immune systems."

In the meantime, it's very illuminating to see which people defend absolutely every aspect of vaccines, to the point that they will omit much of the truth, and twist the rest. (Hello, Paul Offit! Profit much from vaccines?)

Parents with younger children are lucky that they will have more time to sort it out before deciding.

 

There, are, however a number of people on this thread who do have teenage girls….myself included.

 

Of course, even when it is not personal, we can still worry about a demographic.  I do worry about baby boys getting a hep b shot at birth, even though I have not had an infant boy in a long time.  I think everyone on this forum cares about the health of children, or they would not be here.  It is one thing we share in common.

Thanks for sticking with this point. Healthy eating and lifestyle is obviously a good thing to do to support the immune system - no-one will deny that. But its nit always going to be enough. Another good thing to do to help fight off infection with some diseases is to get vaccinated (for most people).

Studies do demonstrate the vaccine is effective in reducing the number of girls infected with HPV, so it will save a fraction of them from developing cervical cancer.

And why are we worrying about 4 year olds on this thread. Girls don't get offered this vaccine until they are much older, so for current 4 years olds there's almost 10 more years of safety and efficacy information on HPV before their parents need decide about this vaccine.

Two strains of HPV are responsible for 70% of cervical cancers (cite: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/HPV).  That may also be why many women with HPV do not develop cancer.

I agree. Just saying someone died of cervical cancer is not enough. You need to look at the whole picture/ lifestyle.

So the immune system doesn't work with genital contact? A healthy immune system is of no use then as it is not able to deal with this virus? How did we ever survive without the HPV vaccine?

Whole foods and vitamins are relevant from the cancer prevention standpoint. And cancer prevention is the marketed purpose of the vaccine.

Your quotes seem contradictory.

Not being spread, but a strong immune system could be enough for it not to turn into cancer, which is the marketed purpose of the vaccine.
