ER Editor: Predictably, there seems to be some attempt to discredit this in the online MSM with lame rebuttals like “it hasn’t been published in a peer review journal”. One Maltese physician has responded positively while stating the obvious need to do further testing:
Professor Charles Savona-Ventura from the University of Malta, believes that the new treatment for the extremely common and homogenous virus, is a very positive step towards medicating against the HPV infection and also towards treating cervical cancer, which can be the result of HPV.
‘Further studies will be needed to truly prove its efficacy and practical usability.’ Professor Savona –Ventura told Newsbook.com.mt.
Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of death among Mexican women.

As a non-invasive procedure, it is said to be an effective method to prevent malignant neoplasm, which is the second leading cause of death among Mexican women.
Dr. Gallegos also explained that:
besides eradicating HPV, the main cause behind cervical cancer, photodynamic therapy is also used to eliminate premalignant lesions of cervical cancer in its first stages.
The results of her work show that she was able to eradicate HPV in 100% of the patients who had the virus but had no premalignant lesions, 64.3% in women with HPV and lesions, and 57.2% in women who had lesions but don’t have HPV. (Source)
Good News for HPV Sufferers – Bad News for Merck and the Gardasil Vaccine
While this is good news for those suffering from HPV, the chances that this therapy will become available in the U.S. are slim to none. More than likely, this will become another therapy that is effective in treatment but banned by the FDA.
The FDA, funded in great part by licensing fees from pharmaceutical companies, does not have a good track record in allowing any kind of natural cures that threaten pharmaceutical products, particularly natural cancer cures.
If anything, this discovery may increase the amount of “medical tourism” to Mexico, where many people flock to receive non-FDA approved treatments every year, especially for cancer.
Dr. Gallegos and her photodynamic therapy to eradicate HPV will, of course, become a huge financial threat to Merck, the pharmaceutical giant that manufactures the Gardasil vaccine, the world’s #1 HPV vaccine.
Merck is expanding the sale of Gardasil into China (see Gardasil HPV Vaccine Acceptance into China Creates Instant Billionaires), and recently received FDA approval to expand the coverage of Gardasil to adults (see FDA Approves Dangerous Gardasil Vaccine for Adults in the U.S.)
Their future financial growth depends on more sales of the Gardasil HPV vaccine, not less. A cure for HPV is an obvious threat to its business forecast.
If word gets out that there is a more natural, non-invasive method to cure HPV, they stand to lose billions of dollars in revenue from their blockbuster Gardasil vaccine.
