According to this report, This FDA approval is NOT BASED on SCIENCE but on a VOTING PROCEDURE by the FDA Advisory Committee, which in turn is based on a BELIEF and not on the gold standard of DOUBLE BLIND PLACEBO CONTROLLED TRIAL. I am flabbergasted. Honestly, does the FDA Advisory Committee know what it is doing? How long was the randomized trial conducted and were the numbers and duration of the trial robust enough to come to this conclusion? Was the randomized trial conducted by an independent research team or was it industry funded? I cannot accept it and I will not recommend it.

WASHINGTON -- The FDA has approved the human papillomavirus vaccine Gardasil for use in males and females ages 9 to 26 to prevent anal cancer.
The decision follows a recommendation from the FDA's advisory committee on vaccines, which voted last month that the vaccine -- already approved for preventing cervical and vaginal cancer in women and genital warts in both sexes -- is safe and effective for anal cancer prevention.
A randomized trial that included men who have sex with men, ages 16 to 26, was the main basis for the new approval. It found that Gardasil was 78% effective in preventing anal intraepithelial neoplasia related to the HPV-16 and HPV-18 viral serotypes.
Because the disease process of anal cancer is believed to be the same in females as in males, and because neoplasias usually develop during adulthood, the FDA did not require separate studies in females or in preteens.
The FDA emphasized that HPV vaccination would not prevent anal cancer in individuals already infected with the virus.
"Treatment for anal cancer is challenging; the use of Gardasil as a method of prevention is important as it may result in fewer diagnoses and the subsequent surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy that individuals need to endure," according to Karen Midthun, MD, director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, in a statement.
Although anal cancer is uncommon in the general population, the incidence is increasing, the agency indicated.
About 90% of anal cancers are believed to stem from HPV infection. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 5,300 people are diagnosed with anal cancer each year in the U.S., affecting more women than men.
1/5/10: Today another "flash" was published in MSM about the enhanced efforts to push Gardasil on adults, especially women 19-49. Don't you see this is more about drug sales and profits than health?
UPDATE: 1/4/10 If you have been following Gardasil vaccine issues on Natural Health News or in other places you know that this is a story we have been covering for about 5+ years.
Today HealthDay announced the new American Academy of Pediatrics 2010 vaccine guidelines; it includes Gardasil for boys and more swine flu shots.
At the same time this is announced, other medical news says that special diets for children with autism do not work. I think this is mis-information, because if they are working in spite of mainstream medicine ignorance, there must be something to them.
And of course with more vaccination we can only know that we will continue to see more vaccine damage.
We do not consider Gardasil to be proven or safe.

If you have been following the thread of Gardasil articles here over the past year you probably won't be amazed by this newly announced campaign to bring Gardasil to your little boys.
From what I gleaned on the report I heard this morning there won't be a new vaccine created. Little boys will be jabbed with the same toxic vaccine as is marketed to girls from age 9 to 26.
I did not glean from the report that there have been any longterm studies on Gardasil for boys. Maybe it is just lagging sales that is behind this, along with FDA's denial for using Gardasil in women 27 to 45.
One reader of this blog commented today on the number of thyroid problems appearing in a group of young girls in their community. Sounds like an adverse effect that needs reporting.

"Our society is littered with millions of children who were harmed in one way or another by vaccinations. Also, do not let us forget the millions of parents who had to watch helplessly as their children's lives were destroyed by devastating vaccination programmes."
