(NaturalNews) Several doctors and women’s groups in India are lambasting advertisements puts out by drug giants GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Merck for their human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine. Objecting to the claims being made that the vaccine protects against cervical cancer, The Sama Resource Centre for Women and Health, Saheli Women’s Resource Centre, and a group of doctors are sounding the alarm that the ads are misleading and inaccurate.
Marketed in the United States as Gardasil, the HPV vaccine is being touted by its manufacturers as the greatest thing since sliced bread as far as preventing cervical cancer. Even in India, the marketing campaign for the vaccine has been so successful that pediatricians all over the country are urging parents to have their adolescent daughters vaccinated.
Budev Chandra Das, a professor of biomedical research at Delhi University, and Dr. Sidharth Sahni, a surgical oncology consultant at Artemis Health Institute, have both been questioning the legitimacy of the vaccine, noting that there are many different types of HPV that the vaccine does not prevent and that there are other conditions that cause cervical cancer besides HPV.
