According to Judicial Watch, the popular HPV vaccine the federal government has recommended for girls and boys as young as 11 has caused thousands of adverse reactions, including seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss, Guillain-Barré syndrome and even death. This has prompted them to file a Freedom of Information lawsuit demanding it release records related to the vaccine for the sexually transmitted disease human papillomavirus, or HPV.

“From the very beginning the federal government has attempted to shield the public from the truth about Gardasil,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Despite safety concerns, the vaccine continues to be pushed for both girls and boys. For the supposed most transparent administration in history to stonewall on an urgent matter of public health is particularly galling.”

Dr. Joseph Mercola has noted that the pharmaceutical companies making billions from the vaccines have spent a substantial portion of those revenues on promoting the drugs to doctors, universities, health journals, the Food and Drug Administration and CDC.
