The Unknown December 24, 2010

Filed under: Vaccination — Lauren @ 8:04 pm

There are realities that exist that have not been PROVEN by a study. Period. Specifically there are aspects of medical interventions (i.e. c-sections, medications, vaccines…) that are virtually unknown due to the constraints, limits and politics of research.


In addition to this truth, there are MANY disease processes and conditions that exist that have no known cause. Despite the enormous advances of science…countless numbers of health problems causes/triggers have not yet been discovered.



This brings me to the thought that maybe…just maybe there are complications and long-term side effects of the practice of vaccination that are still UNKNOWN.



I just came across a tragic news story about a girl Sabrina Parker who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) at age 16, diagnosed at age 15. Lou Gehrig’s  “is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord… The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to (their) death.” (SOURCE) She was a healthy young teenager, full of life, who died with her committed boyfriend by her side.


When I read stories like this of strange diseases occurring in demographics they don’t typically occur in, my mind goes here.  My mind starts to ask questions…such as…when did this disease begin? Did this person receive any new medications/vaccines in the recent past? Were they a healthy individual? Is this a commonly occurring condition in this age group? Then I start to look.


In Sabrina Parker’s case I thought specifically, “…are there any vaccines that she should have gotten at this age?”  “Any proposed connections between the vaccine and this awful disease she was struck with?”





Gardasil (HPV vaccine given to young girls) and cases of Lou Gehrig’s (ALS) soon after


There is another girl named Jenny, a 15-year-old girl who lost her battle to a rapidly degenerative neurological disease on March 15, 2009. (SOURCE) This young girl received the Gardasil vaccine just weeks before her neurological deterioration began. Her parents, along with world-class immunologist “suspect that Jenny had a potentially treatable autoimmune disorder mimicking ALS, possibly triggered by the Gardasil vaccination”. (SOURCE)


There are actually a growing number of cases being reported that claim a perfectly healthy young girl received the Gardasil vaccine, and soon after started to develop severe neurological break down, eventually diagnosed as a type of Lou Gehrig’s (ALS). These cases have gotten the attention of the regulatory agencies and specifically in Jenny’s case, “scientists from the Food and Drug Administration met recently with Jenny’s neurologists at UCSF to discuss whether it’s scientifically plausible for a vaccine to trigger ALS.” (SOURCE)


In two cases, including Jenny, “Both the timing of the symptoms and autopsy results “suggest a link between” the Gardasil vaccine and the fatal cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, says Catherine Lomen-Hoerth, MD, director of the ALS Center at University of California San Francisco Medical Center.” (SOURCE)


Back to the Sabrina Parker.  Did she get the Gardasil vaccine? With this connection just being “plausible”, did her doctors/coroner even look to this possibility? Is her family even aware that other young girls her age had the same medical decline as her soon after the Gardasil vaccine?


With this specific proposed connection between Gardasil and Lou Gehrig’s disease relatively UNKNOWN to the average medical doctor, and virtually UNKNOWN to the average vaccine consumer…


I am brought back to my initial thought that maybe…just maybe there are complications and long-term side effects of the practice of vaccination that are still UNKNOWN.
