Not sure how I did it, but  this post just disappeared.

So will write a new one this evening.  For now:  GARDASIL is being injected into little girls in BC public schools.  Merck wants to make it mandatory for all girls and boys, beginning at age nine.

Our government leaders have given an astonishing, lucrative deal, making little children guinea pigs to the gods of money and hedonism.

Gardasil MIGHT prevent ONE of some 27 possible sexually transmitted diseases.  Those little children are being injected with possibly toxic chemicals for a disease they MIGHT contact, IF they give in to societal messaging that self-control is Victorian.  Just engage in any risky sex and the Mercks of this world will protect you,……for a price.

The astronomical rise of multiple sclerosis has been possibly linked to pharmaceuticals.

So while I don’t know how my post vanished, here’s a start to the new one.  – Gerda


The mystery of MS and its prevalence in Canada

CBC News Posted: Sep 19, 2008 9:23 AM ET Last Updated: Apr 12, 2010 3:42 PM ET

Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, according to an international survey.

The 2008 Atlas of Multiple Sclerosis showed MS strikes 133 out of every 100,000 people in Canada, the fifth highest rate among countries surveyed between 2004 and 2005.

Prevalence was higher in the United States, Germany, Norway and Hungary, according to the World Health Organization and the Multiple Sclerosis International Foundation, which published the report.

The MS Society of Canada says the rate of MS in this country could be as high as 240 per 100,000 people.

Some people with MS experience little disability during their lifetime. But up to 60 per cent are no longer fully able to walk 20 years after onset, which has major implications for their quality of life and costs to society, the report said. Symptoms appear around 30 years of age on average.

“The Atlas of MS reveals how these implications impact women more than men, by at least two to one, at an age when they are starting a family and developing a career,” said Dr. Benedetto Saraceno, director of the WHO’s department of mental health and substance dependence.

Canada has been a leader in terms of diagnosing, treating and working to improve the quality of life of people with MS. But keeping people with MS employed remains a challenge, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada said.

Canadian women are more than twice as likely to get multiple sclerosis than men, according to a major study published in November 2006. Among those born in the 1930s, about two women contracted MS for every one man, at a ratio of 1.9 to 1. For those born in the 1980s, the incidence has grown to exceed 3.2 cases for every one case among men.


Why the sudden increase in the neurodegenerative disease, which attacks the brain and spinal cord, causing inflammation and damage that can lead to paralysis and sometimes blindness?

We don’t know. We don’t know what causes MS. We don’t know what cures MS. The whys and wherefores of this mysterious disease have bedevilled scientists, health-care workers and victims for nearly 200 years.

Recent speculation about the cause has ranged from genetics to environment to vitamin deficiencies to even the birth control pill.

An Italian vascular surgeon — Dr. Paolo Zamboni of the University of Ferrara — has been exploring the theory that MS is caused by blocked veins in the neck or chest, preventing blood from draining properly from the brain. He has developed a surgical technique to treat the problem.

A team at the University of Buffalo — led by Dr. Robert Zivadinov, who worked on an earlier study with Zamboni — has recruited hundreds of patients in Canada and the U.S. to explore the theory further. The patients will undergo specialized neck scans to look for narrowed veins.

MS rates higher in northern lattitudes

Health officials consider a country to have a “high” rate if they have more than 30 cases per 100,000.

The incidence among the provinces varies, from a high of 340 cases for every 100,000 people in the Prairies to a low of 180 cases per 100,000 in Quebec, according to a 2005 study by researchers at the University of Calgary.

Those aged 15 to 40 are most at risk. One out of every two Canadians know someone with MS.

People who live closest to the equator have the lowest incidence of MS.

However, that doesn’t explain why the disease is nearly absent among Canada’s Inuit in the High Arctic and among indigenous people in North America and Australia, or why it is rarely found in Japan.

Study suggests MS is environment-based, preventable

The study on the rising incidence of women with MS was done by a team of researchers led by George Ebers, a professor of neurology at the University of Oxford. It appears in the November 2006 issue of the journal Lancet Neurology.

The higher incidence of MS among women may not be bad news, according to the researchers — because it may help to shed light on what causes the disease.

“What is going on here is something presumably that is preventable,” said Ebers, who was the lead author of the study.

“We just need to find out what it is in the environment. Because it has to be in the environment: your genes don’t change over two generations, three generations.”

Higher estrogen levels, less sunlight blamed

There has also been speculation that because MS is generally more prevalent in colder climates far north of the equator and far south of the equator, it may be due to vitamin D deficiencies.

The body produces the vitamin in response to sunlight and so vitamin D levels fall off in colder countries and in winter because the sun’s rays aren’t intense enough.

Because of the rising incidence of MS among women and because it seems to have started in the 1960s, many others have speculated that the cause may be connected to higher levels of the hormone estrogen due to the introduction of the birth control pill.

But Ebers, who spent 22 years at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ont., before going to Oxford, rejects these factors as likely explanations.

“I think one of the things one thinks of here is either that it’s going to be something in the environment or it is going to be an environmental interaction with genes.”

Good Afternoon Gerda Peachey,


Apologies for the delayed response. IAO has been doing some preliminary research to figure out how best to address your questions below. 


You mention an agreement with Merck. I believe this is in relation to Gardasil, as discussed in the body of your email. This contract with Merck would be held by Health Canada, which is a federal body that is separate from the provincial Ministry of Health. They would also be the most appropriate body to answer questions about the contract, length of the agreement, money paid to Merck for the contract, etc. Their contact information is as follows:

Health CanadaOffice of the Access to Information and Privacy Coordinator


Phone: 1-613-954-9165

Coordinator: Cynthia Richardson
 You also asked questions about the number of injections to date, adverse reactions, warnings, and risk information. These questions would be best directed to the Provincial Health Services Authorities (PHSA), which is also separate from the provincial Ministry of Health. Their website explains that the PHSA is responsible for, “Coordinating and setting standards for selected province wide specialized services.” The BC Centre for Disease Control (BC CDC) also falls under the PHSA, and they are responsible for, “provincial and national leadership in disease surveillance, detection, treatment, prevention and consultation.” They can be reach at:

An FOI request has not been opened with our office at this time. We trust that these additional FOI offices will be able to assist you in your search for records.

 Using tax-dollars to inject Gardasil into little children under the guise of saving them from future sexual HPV disease.


To Health Minister Terry Lake, and Finance Minister Mike de Jong, Premier Christy clark, and MP Ed Fast:


Under Freedom of Information would you provide me with the amount of money we have paid, to date, to Merck, the pharmaceutical company that makes Gardasil?


Please provide a copy of your agreement with Merck. 


Have you committed BC tax-payers to a long-term agreement? 


Have you agree to persuade more children to accept this shot for Merck?


Are you aiming to fulfill the Merck goal of making these injections MANDATORY FOR ALL LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM?


Please provide the number of children in public schools who have been given this injection to date.


Please provide the number of children you expect to persuade in the future, via their guardians, to get this injection.


Please provide the number of children who’ve had adverse reactions to the Gardasil shot. (The only information I was able to get from you, the government to date, was woefully inadequate, citing a nonchalant and dismissive comment under ‘What are the risks and side effects?’…answer…...’Possible side effects include a low fever and soreness where the shot was given.’ )


That does not mesh with the thousands of voices raised in warning against this invasive medicine for an illness that does not exist, and need never exist in the future of that child. Please view some of those protesting this enormously lucrative deal for Merck, and highly suspect benefit for children.


I know you can buy experts to authenticate any desired outcome, but surely injecting the chemicals in Gardasil into little children for sexual activity that we should encourage them to keep for a life-long partner, is nowhere near the category of giving shots for mumps, measles and chicken-pox , those things they can catch just by being in the same room as other children!


Please provide what data children and their guardians receive in advance, in order that they may be well-informed as to the risks, as well as the purported benefits.


How much do you anticipate this program will cost on an annual basis?


Do you have any idea what these chemicals will do in these young bodies later on? Will girls have more miscarriages? Can these chemical cocktails lead to depression, or to ALS or Multiple Sclerosis. MANY voices from within the medical community are warning us about giving Gardasil to little children. Please listen to them. 


Below is a list of autoimmune diseases. Many people believe these are on the increase due to the unknown and extremely complex inter-reactions within our bodies when we inject or ingest chemicals. 


Have you in the BC Government taken the warnings into account before you urged that little children should have THREE shots of Gardasil, to possibly prevent a sexually-aquired disease, long before we want our little children to be giving their bodies to satisfy the lusts of others?


Why would you not make every effort to instill within these little children a longing for the high and noble and lofty things they can achieve in life, rather than encouraging them to think they must give in to the lower and base temptations?


Children who are given wholesome goals and who learn self-discipline are far more likely to grow up happy and healthy in body and mind. Help them attain the genuinely good things of life, like a good marriage, values that centre around family, caring about others, instead of using them for self-gratification. 


Your government, as well as our Federal government, seems to be promoting immorality in our young. The horrific message is abandon all moral restraints, abort any babies that begin life in the womb, blow your brains on drugs, and the government will provide you with all the paraphernalia necessary to keep you enslaved in addictions. Inject government promoted, and paid for, Gardasil shots to possibly prevent one of the many sexually-transmitted diseases, …….THAT CAN BE AVOIDED by higher moral lifestyle decisions.


Oh, and if all that degradation of letting people use your body to satisfy their lusts, using drugs to dull your confused and aching heart, failing to achieve those dreams you once had because sex and drugs have made you ill, body and soul, – well don’t worry, – your benevolent government aims to make it legal and easy for you to exit life.


Dear government leaders, please take the high road yourselves. Give the province, and our nation back the moral compass that was once, more or less the norm.


Please reply to my FOI request. 


Thank you,


Gerda Peachey, Abbotsford, BC
