Some truths about Polio

January 18, 2019


Whenever I engage in discussions against vaccines one of the first things I usually hear is, "What about Polio, though?" People genuinely believe everything the media has fed to them regarding the outbreaks, eradication, and even the fear mongering numbers put forth by the entity responsible for these mass injections. Well here are a few things you should know about polio.

When figuring out how a disease can be eradicated shouldn’t we learn how it is spread? Due to the fact that polio spreads through the fecal-oral route (meaning the virus is transferred from the stool of an infected person to the mouth of another person through a contaminated object, i.e. utensil, hand) focusing on hygiene, sanitation and proper nutrition (to support humans innate immunity) is a logical way to prevent transmission in the first place. So why aren’t cleaner sanitation practices over the years given credit for the so-called eradication of disease?  In this case, “eradication” of the disease probably has a different meaning than you think, but more on that in a moment.

In most people with a healthy immune system, a poliovirus infection does not even generate symptoms. In fact, 95% of people who have the virus will never have even a single symptom. Only rarely does the infection produce minor symptoms, e.g. a sore throat, fever, gastrointestinal disturbances, and influenza-like illness. In only 3% of infections does the virus gain entry to the central nervous system, and less than 1% of people who get the polio virus will end up in a paralytic state most of them returning to normal within 3 years but 5% of that 1% will die.

Vaccines literally CAUSED polio outbreaks

The Cutter incident was one of the worst pharmaceutical disasters in U.S. history, and exposed several thousand children to live polio virus on vaccination. The NIH Laboratory of Biologics Control, which had certified the Cutter polio vaccine, had received advance warnings of problems: in 1954, staff member Dr. Bernice Eddy had reported to her superiors that some inoculated monkeys had become paralyzed.

"In what became known as the Cutter incident, some lots of the Cutter vaccine—despite passing required safety tests—contained live polio virus in what was supposed to be an inactivated-virus vaccine. Cutter withdrew its vaccine from the market on April 27 after vaccine-associated cases were reported.
The mistake produced 220,000 doses of polio vaccine that contained live polio virus (including 100 000 contacts of immunized children). Of children who received the vaccine, 70,000 developed abortive poliomyelitis and muscle weakness, 164 developed paralytic poliomyelitis—and of these, five children died from polio. The exposures led to an epidemic of polio in the families and communities of the affected children, resulting in a further 113 people paralyzed and 5 more deaths."


The director of the microbiology institute lost his job, as did the equivalent of the assistant secretary for health. Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare Oveta Culp Hobby stepped down. Dr. Sebrell, the director of the NIH, resigned. 


By 1978 Cutter was sold to Bayer.

The Polio Global Eradication Initiative (PGEI), founded in 1988 by the World Health Organization (WHO), Rotary International, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), holds up India as a prime example of its success at eradicating polio, stating on its website (Jan. 11 2012) that: 


India has made unprecedented progress against polio in the last two years and on 13 January 2012, India will reach a major milestone — a 12-month period without any case of polio being recorded.


This report, however, is highly misleading, as an estimated 100-180 Indian children are diagnosed with vaccine-associated polio paralysis (VAPP) each year.


 In fact, the clinical presentation of the disease, including paralysis, caused by VAPP is indistinguishable from that caused by wild polioviruses but twice as deadly, making the PGEI’s pronouncements all the more questionable.


There were 47,500 cases of non-polio paralysis reported in 2011, the same year India was declared "polio-free," according to [Dr. Neetu Vashisht and Dr. Jacob Puliyel of the Department of Paediatrics at St Stephens Hospital in Delhi]. "The available data shows that the incidents tracked back to areas were doses of the polio vaccine were frequently administered." VAPP unironically is the predominant form of the disease in even developed countries like the US since 1973 and has emerged as the predominant form of the disease in the United States since at least 1980.


Mutated Vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV) 
The live, weakened vaccine-virus can - over time and prolonged replication - genetically change. A vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV) is a live, weakened strain of the virus contained in OPV (oral polio vaccine), which has changed and reverted to a form that may be able to cause paralysis in humans and develop the capacity for sustained circulation according to the WHO (World Health Organization).

...the live vaccine has re-evolved the ability to infect unvaccinated people and, in communities where vaccination is still inconsistent or incomplete, it can circulate widely, allowing the virus to fully readapt to human hosts and leading to hundreds of cases of childhood paralysis.


An unnamed British man received the mandatory full course of oral vaccinations of the weakened poliovirus in the form of a sugar cube at five, seven, and 12 months, followed by a booster at seven. However, according to The Guardian, a non-related health condition suppressed his immune system and prevented his body from destroying the virus. As a result, the polio virus was able to live inside of his gut for his entire life and was present in a large quantity in his stool.  


What this means is that this man has been shedding a mutated form of the polio virus he received from the vaccine and that if it weren't for cleaner sanitation practices many people would have gotten this strain no one in the world is vaccinated against.


A large portion of the world’s vaccines is given to the Third World as “charity,” when the underlying conditions of economic impoverishment, inadequate nutrition, chemical exposures, and socio-political unrest are never addressed. You simply can’t vaccinate people out of these conditions, and as these cases demonstrate, the “cure” may be far worse than the disease itself.


Renamed not eradicated
Vaccines didn't eradicate polio; that may be the biggest lie and attempted data manipulation in pharmaceutical history. According to Dr. Suzanne Humphries, shortly after 1955, a cover-up was created to hide the fact that the polio vaccine was even spreading polio. Dr. Humphries went on to explain how a deadly live polio virus strain had infected the Salk vaccines and created an epidemic of polio-type diseases labeled aseptic meningitis or Acute Flacid Paralyis (AFP). The term AFP includes Guillain-Barre’ syndrome, aka “French Polio”, traumatic neuritis, Reye’s syndrome, enteroviral encephalopathy, transverse myelitis, and poliomyelitis. Dr. Humphries displayed this graph in her article showing how reports of polio leveled out while AFP cases continually soared since the mid-1990s, demonstrating that polio has not disappeared.


In 1954 the U.S. government simply redefined polio. When it comes to government and public policy, the truth is rarely undeniable. That seems to be the nature of the beast. According to Dr. Bernard Greenberg, head of the Department of Biostatistics of the University of North Carolina School of Public Health:


In order to qualify for classification as paralytic poliomyelitis, the patient had to exhibit paralytic symptoms for at least 60 days after the onset of the disease. Prior to 1954, the patient had to exhibit paralytic symptoms for only 24 hours. Laboratory confirmation and the presence of residual paralysis were not required. After 1954, residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days and again 50 to 70 days after the onset of the disease. This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer lasting paralysis.


Remember the iron lungs, those huge devices resembling miniature decompression chambers in which polio victims were placed in to help them breathe. They have all but disappeared leading people to believe the problem of polio is over. But the iron lung has merely been replaced with another, much smaller, portable, medical device known as the ventilator. Ventilators are used these days to help those stricken with any form of breathing restrictions, whether from completely congested lungs, polio or another paralysis that makes it impossible to breathe normally. The iron lung as scary as it looked (and is often a visual effect of the “dangers” of poliovirus) was actually just the first ventilator system of its time.

Cancer-causing polio vaccines
Simian Virus 40 (SV40):

A Cancer-Causing Monkey Virus from FDA-Approved Vaccines

Perhaps the worst thing about polio vaccines is their continued contamination by monkey viruses of which SV40 is the best-researched one.



According to ample medical research evidence, polio vaccines of any kind cause VAPP. However, there are other major problems with the polio vaccine that justify doubt about its benefits, one of which is the well‐documented and continuous contamination  by monkey viruses  SV1‐SV40. Soon after the poliovirus mass vaccination programmes started in the US, a  number of monkey viruses and amoebas were found in the vaccine seed brews.  Hull, Milner et al. (56) and Hull, Johnston et al. (1955) encountered numerous filterable,  transferable cytopathogenic agents other than poliovirus in “normal”  monkey renal cell cultures. Even though these agents completely destroyed culture tissues,  and even caused serious diarrhea in laboratory animals, all of which died, their possible pathogenesis in humans was ignored or glossed over.


In 2002, the IOM's (Institute of Medicine) Immunization Safety Review Committee considered that the available data were inadequate to conclude whether or not the contaminated polio vaccine may have caused cancer. Stating that "Because there is biological evidence supporting the theory that SV40-contamination of polio vaccines could contribute to human cancers, the committee recommended continued public health attention in the form of policy analysis, communication, and targeted biological research."


Polio contains the simian virus contaminate that shows links to numerous cancers.

"For four decades, government officials have insisted that there is no evidence the simian virus called SV40 is harmful to humans. But in recent years, dozens of scientific studies have found the virus in a steadily increasing number of rare brain, bone and lung-related tumors - the same malignant cancer SV40 causes in lab animals. Even more troubling, the virus has been detected in tumors removed from people never inoculated with the contaminated vaccine, leading some to worry that those infected by the vaccine might be spreading SV40."

-Dr. Michele Carbone of Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill


I’m afraid this is just the beginning of the damage potentially being done by SV-40. It has been linked to mesothelioma and other rare cancers showing that not all health hazards introduced in the tip of the vaccine needle are immediate. Some pop up 20 to 30 years later.


This is a very extensive article written by Michael E. Horwin, M.A., J.D. 

It was originally published in the Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology, Volume 13, Number 3, 2003. This article goes into detail about the creation and production of the Polio Vaccines to the discovery of the Simian Virus, the attempted cover-up, and the most recent discoveries.


Hopefully this article has at least added another perspective on everything you thought you knew about Polio.
