In Japan, young women and
girls suffering from severe chronic generalized pain following
Merck's Gardasil® or GSK's Cervarix®, have
organized and are speaking out.
The issues are being debated at public hearings, at which scientific
presentations have been made by independent medical experts who
validated the women's suffering with documented evidence of the
severe nature of the pain related to the HPV vaccine.
The opposing view, presented by scientists aligned with the vaccine
establishment, disregarded the scientific plausibility of the
evidence and declared the pain was a "psychosomatic reaction."
Such public debates do not take place where vaccine stakeholders are
in full control of vaccine safety information. (Like in the U.S.,
Following a public hearing (February 2014), at which scientific
evidence was presented by independent scientists , the
Japanese government, not only rescinded its recommendation that
girls receive the HPV vaccine, but established guidelines and
special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the

The authors resort to the usual tactic of discrediting
vaccine-injured individuals; they dismissed the serious health

Internet rumors and "vaccine hesitators."

Collaborators in Action - Trash Honest Scientists to Suppress

government/academic and industry stakeholders suppresses information
about genuine scientific findings and, when needed, is engaged in
corrupt practices to thwart the airing of information about vaccine

pathologist Dr. Sin Hang Lee, MD, Director of Milford Medical
Laboratory, sent an
open letter of complaint to the Director-General of the World
Health Organization (WHO), Dr.
Margaret Chan, in which he
challenges the integrity of the GACVS
Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV Vaccination (issued
March 2014), and charges professional misconduct on the part of the

Dr. Lee challenged
the integrity of the GACVS Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV
Vaccination written by Dr. Pless, accusing him of deliberately
misrepresenting his scientific findings in order to mislead
non-scientific readers and those who set vaccination policies.
Dr. Pless is
accused of deliberately conflating two unrelated articles, dealing
with two different chemicals, written by different authors
"apparently to create a target to attack."
Lee notes that the GACVS Statement relied on an unpublished

his case report in the open access journal,

Shoenfeld identified a new syndrome ASIA (Autoimmune/Inflammatory
