The CDC says people should keep taking this vaccine. It’s actually killed quite a few and made many, many ill, but please, continue to allow yourself to be injected with their crap. The CDC is the same group that applied major governmental mathematics to take 21 illnesses from raw milk and turn it into 20,000 illnesses. More on that later…Here’s an article regarding the recall. Please note they are admitting to it having glass particles in the vaccine, amongst the other goodies.

Merck issues voluntary recall of 743,360 vials of Gardasil HPV vaccine

Merck is issuing a voluntary recall of one lot of Gardasil vaccines due to the risk that some vials of the vaccine may contain glass particles, according to a statement released today by the pharmaceutical company.

The company estimates that only 10 of the 743,360 vials in the lot may have been affected by the incident, which was the result of a breakdown in production.  A medical assessment conducted by Merck concluded that if a patient were to receive one of the contaminated vaccines, they had a “remote risk” of experiencing a reaction at the injection site.

This lot of vaccines was distributed between August 20, 2013 and October 9, 2013. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that it purchased 350,000 doses of Gardasil from this lot for their own vaccination programs.

“Vaccines from the affected lot were distributed between August 20, 2013, and October 9, 2013. No other lots are affected,” the agency said in a statement released Friday. “People who have recently received an HPV vaccine or their parents do not need to take any action as a result of this recall.  If a vaccine containing glass particles (tiny enough to get through a needle) is given to a patient, mild reactions routinely seen after vaccination may occur (for instance, redness or swelling at the injection site).”

So far, no injuries have been reported related to the contaminated vaccines, according to the CDC. People who received a vaccine from the contaminated lot do not need to be revaccinated, and the sterility of the vaccine was not affected, according to Merck.

Merck said it is in the process of contacting customers who purchased vaccines from this lot, # J007354, which was distributed in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Gardasil protects against certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer in women. The CDC added that it continues to recommend that all preteen girls and boys receive three doses of the vaccine at age 11 or 12 years old.

EPA Official Says Ethanol RFN Has Reached the Wall

A top Environmental Protection Agency official admitted in front of Congress that the federal ethanol blending mandate has put undue requirements on oil companies.

“We’re recognizing that the blend wall has been reached,” Christopher Grundler, head of the EPA’s transportation and air office, told senators in a hearing on the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

“Reaching the blend wall clearly presents constraints to using higher ethanol quantities because of the infrastructure and other market limitations,” Grundler said.

The RFS requires that refiners blend 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels into the fuel supply by 2022. The main ethanol used to meet that demand comes from corn, which has driven up food and fuel prices as more of the country’s corn crop is diverted to ethanol production.

Furthermore, refiners have reached what is known as the “blend wall” — the limits of what can be safely blended into the fuel supply before damaging vehicle engines. This has driven up the cost of renewable fuel credits and caused refiners to ship fuel overseas where the RFS does not apply.

The economic and environmental damage has inspired a wide-ranging coalition of refiners, environmentalists, motorist groups and other to pressure Congress to reform the RFS.

“It is harming as many farmers as it helps, is becoming obsolete as an energy independence resource and increasing greenhouse gas emissions,” Scott Faber, president of the Environmental Working Group told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“If you look at the landscape of what we thought we had in 2007 as an energy picture, it’s radically different today,” Charles Drevna, president of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, told TheDCNF. Drevna favors full repeal of the RFS.

“The blend wall is indeed here and will present problems if not addressed,” Drevna added.

The EPA proposed scaling back the RFS in November, easing the pressure on refiners. Many saw it as an implicit admission to the dangers of the “blend wall.”

The best avenue is repeal and start over,” Drevna said. “You have to look at the reality in 2013, not what they thought the reality would be looking forward from 2007.”

A major worry is that failure to repeal or reform the RFS would mean that more potentially damaging fuel with higher ethanol levels will be sold. Many car companies have said that they will not honor the warranty of any cars that are damaged using E15 gasoline — gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol. Such gasoline has been found to damage car engines as well as the engines for outdoor equipment and recreational vehicles, like motorcycles and motorboats.

There seems to be a bipartisan consensus in favor of reforming the RFS, but there is little political will to do away with it entirely.

“Frankly, there’s not much of a political marketplace for repeal,” Faber said.
