Lets examine what is in Gardasil.

Table 1: Contents of Each 0.5mL Dose of Gardasil
Material * Amount
HPV Type 6 L1 protein 20 ug
HPV Type 11 L1 protein 40 ug
HPV Type 16 L1 protein 40 ug
HPV Type 18 L1 protein 20 ug
Aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate adjuvant 225 ug
Sodium chloride 9.56 mg
Sodium borate 35 ug
L-histidine 0.78 mg
Polysorbate 80 50 ug
Yeast protein <7 ug

I've previously encountered Polysorbate 80.

To confirm Polysorbate 80 is Tween 80: journals.iucr.org/j/issues/2009/04/00/aj5125/aj5125.pdf

From the study 'Delayed effects of neonatal exposure to Tween 80 on female reproductive organs in rats':

'Neonatal female rats were injected ip (0.1 ml/rat) with Tween 80 in 1, 5 or 10% aqueous solution on days 4-7 after birth. Treatment with Tween 80 accelerated maturation, prolonged the oestrus cycle, and induced persistent vaginal oestrus. The relative weight of the uterus and ovaries was decreased relative to the untreated controls. Squamous cell metaplasia of the epithelial lining of the uterus and cytological changes in the uterus were indicative of chronic oestrogenic stimulation. Ovaries were without corpora lutea, and had degenerative follicles.'

That the rats were given more, though the 1% aqueous solution presumably takes us to 100 000th of a gram.

we have to be grateful that you are not preaching the dangers of sodium yet, I guess. Care to tell us how much sodium borate is in a single vial of Gardasil? Could it actually be less than polysorbate 80? About the amount equivalent to a 142000th of a teaspoon full (yes, I have done the maths)?

oh, and Orphadeus - Gardasil is not injected "directly into the blood" and the amounts that are injected i.m. are NOT damaging to fertility. Why do you keep claiming things that are demonstrably wrong?

According to Catherina:

'From your link. IV multivits come as 10ml (=10gr) vials containing 1.6% (160mg) of polysorbate 80.'

Can anyone else find that?

Although it is not in the link I gave, some IV multivits come as 10 ml vials containing 1.6% polysorbate 80 in the lower vial: www.rxlist.com/multi-vitamin-concentrate-drug.htm

You need to pay attention to *. The lower vial is 5 ml.

Another contains 1.4% of one of the 5 ml vials: www.rxlist.com/infuvite-adult-pharmacy-bulk-package-drug.htm

Basically each shot contains about 50 times more polysorbate 80 than the combined 3 doses of Gardasil.

What they did in the study www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1081120610610241 appears to have been pin pricks with small amounts by which they deduced it was the polysorbate 80 that had nearly caused death in the patient who had injected multivitamins. As far as I am aware, they did not guaranteed that smaller doses are safe.

Was it Gary Glitter's idea to have L-histidine in Gardasil?

160 mg = 160000 µg = 3200x the amount in one Gardasil shot.
