HPV Vaccine Victim Sues Merck
Advertisements [?]
By Dr. Mercola

Naomi Snell, a 28-year-old woman in Melbourne, Australia, is leading a class-action civil lawsuit against drug maker Merck after suffering autoimmune and neurological complications following injections with the HPV vaccine, Gardasil.

After receiving the first of three doses of the vaccine, Naomi suffered convulsions, severe back and neck pain, and lost her ability to walk.

Doctors actually diagnosed her with multiple sclerosis, which was later retracted and labeled a neurological reaction to the vaccine.

Seven other women, who say they have suffered various physical problems, including anaphylaxis and miscarriage, after receiving Gardasil may also join the civil lawsuit, and this is likely only the beginning, as Gardasil is being implicated in a growing number of serious, permanent and sometimes deadly adverse reactions.

Serious Vaccine Reactions, Deaths, Often Labeled "Coincidence"

  - their individual health isn't as important as the herd... according to some.  KittyWampus   Dec-03-11 10:45 PM   #1 
  - Mercola is a not a reputable source. nt  LeftyMom   Dec-03-11 10:51 PM   #2 
  - LOL! Didn't read the article and note it's sources, did you?  KittyWampus   Dec-03-11 10:52 PM   #3 
  - Ma'am, you're welcome to read what one of the worst cranks on the internet has to say,  LeftyMom   Dec-03-11 10:57 PM   #4 
  - Good luck with the shed. A man with a famous garden around here painted his sheds/trim  KittyWampus   Dec-03-11 10:59 PM   #5 
  - Uh, Judicial Watch is a right wing propaganda organization.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 01:30 AM   #13 
  - Judicial Watch are even worse than Mercola  LeftishBrit   Dec-04-11 03:46 AM   #16 
  - Ah the old - I don't like the source even if they cite/link to studies, therefore it is not real  The Straight Story   Dec-03-11 11:23 PM   #6 
     - How many logical fallacies can you put in one short post?  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 01:31 AM   #14 
     - Not the point  LeftishBrit   Dec-04-11 09:36 AM   #21 
  - Unrec for Mercola.  Odin2005   Dec-03-11 11:26 PM   #7 
  - how about:  The Straight Story   Dec-03-11 11:32 PM   #8 
     - Post some relevant data from the study  inademv   Dec-04-11 12:19 AM   #9 
     - +1  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 12:37 AM   #10 
     - Well, the study isn't really the story here--the LAWSUIT is.  MADem   Dec-04-11 01:18 AM   #11 
        - Lawsuits are a dime a dozen, and they're very poor when it comes to understanding science.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 01:25 AM   #12 
           - Yes, that may be so--but the OP is about the lawsuit, and the lawsuit  MADem   Dec-04-11 01:33 AM   #15 
              - Except the actual science matters more than the court opinion  inademv   Dec-04-11 09:19 AM   #19 
              - Not always. Ask the courts of Saudi Arabia which counts more--  MADem   Dec-04-11 01:33 PM   #25

                       - I'm sure you want to believe that you're offering something of value.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 08:23 PM   #31 
                          - We will see what the court decides.  MADem   Dec-05-11 01:20 AM   #32 
              - The lawsuit is unlikely to affect distribution in any way.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 10:18 AM   #22 
                 - A lot of those links are to shyster lawyers. Like I said, I have not seen a CLASS ACTION to this  MADem   Dec-04-11 01:29 PM   #24 
                    - Nice dodge attempt.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 06:10 PM   #26 
                       - Look, there is a huge differencce between an individual lawsuit and a class action lawsuit.  MADem   Dec-04-11 07:53 PM   #29 
                          - Duh.  HuckleB   Dec-04-11 08:22 PM   #30 
                             - I'd say you need to tell that to yourself. I'm discussing the OP.  MADem   Dec-05-11 01:22 AM   #33
