POLIO The polio death rate was decreasing on its own before the vaccine was introduced, and there is no credible scientific evidence that the vaccine caused polio to disappear. Cases of polio increased after mass inoculations.
The United States Centre for Disease Control (CDC) admitted that the vaccine has become the dominant cause of polio in the US today, with 87% of cases between 1973 and 1983 caused by the vaccine. More recently, 1980-1989, every case of polio in the US was caused by the vaccine. Doctors and scientists on the staff of the National Institute of Health during the 1950’s were well aware that the Salk vaccine was ineffective and deadly. Some frankly stated that it was “worthless as a preventative and dangerous to take”. The Salk “inactivated” or “killed-virus” was actually regulated to permit 5,000 live viruses per million doses.
A large vaccine trial in 1955 showed a total failure of the Salk vaccine to protect against poliomyelitis. During a 1959 epidemic in Massachusetts, 77.5% of the paralytic cases had received three or more doses of the inactivated vaccine.
In 1956 with the infamous Francis Field Trials they discovered large numbers of children contracted polio after receiving the vaccine. Instead of removing the vaccine from the market, they decided to exclude from the statistics all cases of polio that occurred within 30 days after vaccination on the pretext that such cases were “pre-existing”.
In 1958 mass vaccination triggered a disastrous increase in polio, the highest being 700% in Ottawa, Canada. The highest incidence in the USA occurred in those states which had been induced to adopt compulsory polio shots(1).
Four of the five Salk vaccine companies ceased producing this vaccine due to its failure, and because of the lawsuits against them. “Use of either Salk or Sabin vaccine will increase the possibility that your child will contact the disease. It appears that the most effective way to protect your child from polio is to make sure that he doesn’t get the vaccine “—Dr Mendelsohn M.D.(1984).
Where polio vaccination programs have been instituted worldwide, reported polio infections show a 700% increase as a result of compulsory vaccination.
POLIO DEFINITION FRAUD: Statistics on polio were manipulated. One such way was to redefine the disease, renaming it “viral or aseptic meningitis” or “cocksackie virus”. In one US county, for example, in July 1955 there were 273 cases of polio reported for 50 cases of asceptic meningitis, compared to 5 cases of polio in 1966 and 256 cases of aseptic meningitis. These new diagnostic guideline’s were issued by the CDC. If you object to polio vaccination, and you get polio—it is usually called “polio.” If you have been vaccinated and you get “polio”, it is called meningitis(2).
A former public health officer, Dr Ratner, reported that just before the introduction of the first polio vaccine the National Foundation For Infant Paralysis was paying physicians $25 for each reported diagnosis. “A patient would walk into a doctors office with a limp from an accident. He’d say he had a fever a few days ago…and guess what the diagnosis would be?” It was well known Paralytic polio cured itself 50% of the time within 60 days. After the Salk vaccine was introduced, the definition of polio was changed by the CDC. Now, in order to have paralytic polio, you had to have it longer than 60 days(16).
Because the Salk vaccine was promoted as being incapable of causing polio, cases that occurred following administration of the vaccine were denied, and excluded from the Vaccine injury table(4)
Many doctors refuse to report vaccine reaction, and I worked out that of over 200 families of vaccine damaged children contacting JABS, the support group, only about 3% had been reported damaged by their doctor. In the USA the FDA admits that 90% of vaccine damage cases go unreported(4).
Dr. Bernard Greenberg, a biostatistics expert, was chairman of the Committee on Evaluation and Standards of the American Public Health Association during the 1950s. He testified at a panel discussion that was used as evidence for the congressional hearings on polio vaccine in 1962. During these hearings he elaborated on the problems associated with polio statistics and disputed claims for the vaccine’s effectiveness. He attributed the dramatic decline in polio cases to a change in reporting practices by physicians. Less cases were identified as polio after the vaccination for very specific reasons. “Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidizing the cost of hospitalization and was being community-minded in reporting a communicable disease. The criterion of diagnosis at that time in most health departments followed the World Health Organization definition: “Spinal paralytic poliomyelitis: signs and symptoms of nonparalytic poliomyelitis with the addition of partial or complete paralysis of one or more muscle groups, detected on two examinations at least 24 hours apart.” Note that “two examinations at least 24 hours apart” was all that was required. Laboratory confirmation and presence of residual paralysis was not required. In 1955 the criteria were changed to conform more closely to the definition used in the 1954 field trials: residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days after onset of illness and again 50 to 70 days after onset…. This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer-lasting paralysis. Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined. Coxsackie virus infections and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from paralytic poliomyelitis. Prior to 1954 large numbers of these cases undoubtedly were mislabeled as paralytic poliomyelitis. Thus, simply by changes in diagnostic criteria, the number of paralytic cases was predetermined to decrease in 1955-1957, whether or not any vaccine was used.
“Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection”—Dr Sabin, developer of Polio vaccine.
Health officials convinced the Chinese to rename the bulk of their polio to Guillaine Barre Syndrome (GBS). A study found that the new disorder (Chinese Paralytic syndrome) and the GBS was really polio (41). After mass vaccination in 1971, reports of polio went down but GBS increased about 10 fold.
“In the WHO polio vaccine eradication in the Americas, there were 930 cases of paralytic disease—all called polio. Five years later, at the end of the campaign, roughly 2000 cases of paralytic disease occurred—but only 6 of them were called polio (41). The rate of paralytic disease doubled, but the disease definition changed so drastically that hardly any of it was called polio any more.”—Greg Beattie
“They started vaccinating in 1985 (in the Americas). Within 4 months they had 350 cases…They caused a substantial, huge outbreak of polio but they started ‘discarding’ most of the cases (put as flaccid paralysis).”—Viera Scheibner (42).
POLIO VACCINE CONTAMINATION: AIDS, CANCER, GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME & LEUKEMIA “All vaccination has the effect of directing the three values of the blood into or toward the zone characteristics of cancer and leukaemia…Vaccines do predispose to cancer and leukaemia.” Professor L. Vincent – founder of Bioelectronics
“Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country.” Dr F. Klenner, M.D.
During the 1950’s and 60’s millions of people were contaminated with a cancer-causing monkey viruses called SV1 to SV40 (simian virus) from the polio vaccines due to using kidneys from the Rhesus macaques monkey to make the vaccines. Of these SV40 (the 40th one found!) was the most researched. It is commonly used by scientists to induce genetic changes in other viruses. In animals it causes large numbers to develop sarcomas (cancer), and decreases protein production leading to muscle wasting—symtoms of AIDS. The administration of Salk vaccine, in New Zealand (1956-66), with SV40 was related to the appearance of SSPE, 100 times greater than expected(1).
A study of 58,000 women who had received the IPV (killed virus) during the time that SV40 contaminated the vaccine (1959-1965) showed a thirteenfold increased risk of brain tumours in their children.
Another virus from monkeys—respiratory syncytial (RS) was found in the polio vaccine in 1956, where a relationship was found to respiratory tract illness. That monkey viruses can be deadly was demonstrated when over 10 vaccine researchers died, after being bitten by monkeys, from monkey B virus—a herpes virus. One of these was a colleague of Sabin in 1932. In 1976 researchers at the US bureau of Biologics found that 3 samples of Lederle polio vaccine contained between 1,000 and 100,000 simian viruses per ml. of vaccine, a much higher concentration than later safety regulations allowed (Kyle, 1992). Not forgetting the slaughter of thousands of monkeys to make these vaccines.
A mass polio vaccination in Finland (1985) resulted in a higher incidence of Guillain-Barre (GBS) cases in the first two quarters (16 total) compared to a mean incidence of GBS in the population of 3 cases per quarter during a 6 year surveillance period, 1981-1986. Ten of these were diagnosed within 10 weeks after vaccination with OPV. The Vaccine Safety Committee has acknowledged that OPV causes both paralytic polio and Guillain-Barre syndrome. Louis Pascal has demonstrated that AIDS originated in the Belgian Congo as a direct result of mass oral polio vaccination which was contaminated with another monkey virus—the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and bovine retrovirus, again as a result of using African Green monkey and calves kidneys to make vaccines. If the green monkey had anything to do with AIDS it was through generously “donating” it’s kidneys(1). The AIDS virus is called Human T-Cell lymphoma/leukemia virus 3, or HTLV 3, since changed to HIV. Very similar to the monkey leukemia virus HTLV 4 (SIV), and almost identical to Visna sheep virus and Bovine Leukemia virus (BLV). Human Leukemia virus is HTLV 1, which looks like BLV and causes the same kind of disease in humans as it does in cattle, and is also virtually identical to STLV 1, another monkey virus(12). Myers et al (1992) asked whether HIV might simply be SIV adapting to a human host(1). It doesn’t take much to see how the polio vaccine can cause leukemia in children. “Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin vaccine, being made of monkey kidney tissue….has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukemia in this country”—Dr Klenner, M.D.(19) Leukemia also has a mercury component, also found in the DPT, Hib, & Hep B vaccines with the mercury solution Thimerosal. A dentist, Dr Pinto, cured a girl of Leukemia by removing her mercury amalgam fillings. To prove his point, to her sceptical doctor, he replaced the amalgam, and the leukemia came back. He removed them again and the Leukemia went away again(17) This mercury solution, Thimerosal, is used in some laboratories to induce auto-immune disease in rabbits(17). Formaldehyde, found in the polio, HepB, and DPT vaccines is a known carcinogen. The DTP also contains sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid and aluminium. The MMR contains neomycin, an antibiotic. The Hib also contains saccarides, sodium chloride & aluminium hydroxide. The Hep B also contains aluminium hydrochloride and sodium chloride(4). Three shots of these chemicals and metals plus bacteria and viruses: diptheria, pertussis, tetanus, influenza type b, (plus hepatitis B in America), & 3 types of polio with the DPT, Hib, and Polio vaccines into babies before 4 months of age! Then the MMR at 12-18 months. Then again at 4 years. Twenty one vaccine mixtures before 5 years.
“Even to this day, the government, the FDA is refusing to use the sophisticated biotechnology to evaluate the contaminants in the vaccines such as the polio vaccines that they are administering. I think (people) would be appalled that some of the vaccines that are being currently being used are still laced with viruses,”—Leonard Horowitz., D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.
POLIO VACCINE DAMAGE: In Polio Network News, 1992, it was reported that 4,236 petitions have been filed with the US Claims Court for injuries and deaths caused by polio vaccination(18). One woman in New Zealand in 1983 had both legs amputated after a “dirty” polio shot containing SV40 was administred. This was after 10 years of suffering(14). The FDA recently permitted the live polio vaccine to be released for use even though it did not meet existing safety standards. After losing a court case they rewrote their rules so these previously unacceptable safety measures would be allowable(4). To add insult to injury the UK government will take you through hell before they admit liability, and then offer derisory amounts, and then only if you are over 80% damaged! All the “expert witnesses” are members of the allopathic medical profession; as vaccination (and the companies who make the vaccines) is one of the pillars of allopathy they are not exactly impartial.
The Wellcome company recently gave up making vaccines as “there was too much litigation and too little profit”.
In the US from 1990-1993 (3yrs) the FDA counted 54,072 adverse reactions following vaccination. They admit only 10% are reported which puts the real figure at over 500,000. A comparative figure for the UK would be 45,000 per year, although we would be less as we have not mandated vaccines(4).
The Polio Connection of America & Polio vaccine victims: LINK
Considering deaths alone we now had an estimate of over 3000 individuals from 1961.
Our curiosity thus was aroused and the net result is that we began our own investigation. We commissioned an OPV Vaccine Report and started making all kinds of other inquires. The OPV Vaccine report that we received was a shocking report. It covered a recent period a little less than 5 years and the following is the summary for that period: The number of Vaccine Associated events that occurred: 13,641 The number of events requiring emergency room visits 6,364 The number of life threatening events 236 The number of events requiring hospitalization 1726 The number of events with unknown recovery status 1695 The number of events resulting in permanent disability 133 The number of events resulting in death 540
It now seems we have discovered a Second Polio Deception and it is not Splendid! It seems we have exposed this nonsense of 8-10 cases of vaccine associated Poliomyelitis (VAP) each year’ for what it is and as the saying goes we seem to have opened Pandora’s Box. We also wonder how a figure of 8-10 VAP per year can be arrived at when there are in a full 5 years over 1,695 events (330 events per year) with unknown recovery status. How can any figure be valid with so many unknowns?
CAUSE OF POLIO 1) Diet: Stephen Cooter found that the description of an acute polio virus infection is almost identical to vitamin B1 deficiency caused damage, Beri Beri. This is commonly caused by dextrose and alcohol as well as eating white rice.
Klenner, Southern Medicine & Surgery, April, 1951 “… review[ing] the findings of McCormick in 50 confirmed cases of poliomyelitis in and around Toronto, Canada, during the epidemic of 1949… families eating brown bread who came down with poliomyelitis did not develop paralysis; whereas in those families eating white bread many of the children having poliomyelitis did develop paralysis. The point here is that brown bread has 28 times more vitamin B1 than does white bread. Obviously, then, the paralysis which complicates acute poliomyelitis appears to be due to a B1 avitaminosis.” LINK
Dr Sandler in 1949 warned the residents of North Carolina to decrease consumption of ice cream, soda pop, and artificially sweetened products in hot weather. The incidence of polio dropped by 90%(20). Dr McCormick pointed out that the first case of polio was reported in Vienna one year after roller-mill white flour was first sold there. He calls polio the form of beri-beri that follows the use of degerminated flour(2). Another factor is the protection provided by human milk. Vaccination could not be successfully admintered to breast fed babies. Dr George Starr claimed that “every case of infantile paralysis he had been able to check up on had been the victim of denatured (pasteurised) milk”, and his observation that, “a child has never been known to have infantile paralysis if the nursing mother took fruit juice in the place of milk and that, similarly, no child was ever known to have infantile paralysis if fed on fruit juice instead of milk”.
“The milling of wheat destroys 40% of the chromium, 86% of the cobalt, 68% of the copper, 78% of the zinc, and 48% of the molybdenum. By the time it is completely refined it has lost most of its phosphorus, iron and riboflavin, as well most fiber. Wheat flour has been plundered of most of its vitamin E, important oils and amino acids. White bread also turns to glucose as quick as white sugar (This is the staple diet of the majority). Enriched and vitamin fortified foods are an outlandish rip-off…after enrichment white flour has less than half the calcium, a third the phosphorous and potassium. In one experiment 2/3rds of the rats kept on a 90 day diet of enriched bread died before the experiment was finished!. The 8 vitamins sprayed on most “fortified” breakfast cereals represent only a small portion of the nutrients originally present—not to mention fibre which has been removed almost entirely”.—Paul Stitt (food scientist).
Dr Melvin Page D.D.S. found that when he was able to get patients to achieve a calcium level 2 1/2 times that of phosphorus, degenerative diseases disappeared. The prime agents to cause an imbalance in the phosphorus calcium ratio are animal products (meat has a 20-1 ratio) sugar and soft drinks. (The average yearly sugar intake is 110 lbs. Average soft drink intake in the USA is 1-2 cans. Soft drinks are highly acidic, about 2.5 pH. It would take 32 glasses of alkaline water of pH 10 to neutralise one glass of cola.) Dr Hal Higgins D.D.S states that pasteurised milk will rot your teeth at twice the rate of sugar. “Pasturised milk is dangerous and destructive. It causes disease. It has not one redeeming quality. All it does is mask spoiled milk so that big business can make big money”.—H. Diamond, nutritionist.
Dr Gordon Stewart, Prof of Epidemiology and Pathology, states that polio and other viruses can be carried for months, even years with no effect. According to Dr Dennis Geffen, of every 100 people who contract polio virus, 90% remain symptomless; 9% only develop slight signs of the illness such as a stiff neck or sore throat, whilst only 1% develop definite paralysis.
“Viruses and bacteria are not the sole cause of infectious disease, there is something else”.—Prof Rene Dubois.——Nutrition & toxemia.
2) Vaccinations (provocation polio): Not only did the polio vaccine have nothing to do with the decline of paralytic polio (or polio in general), evidence shows that vaccinations for this and other diseases, notably diptheria, triple antigen (diptheria, pertussis and tetanus) and smallpox – were responsible for its increase. The decline of cases not caused by vaccination began to disappear in the West with improvements in hygiene and sanitation and most of the decline occurred well before the widespread use of polio vaccination.
The following information by the National Anti-Vivisection Society (UK) gives some insight into the relationship between the diptheria and triple antigen vaccines and paralytic polio:
“The early triple vaccine against diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus had also been shown beyond doubt to cause paralytic polio in some children to whom it was administered. The incidence of polio in children recently vaccinated against diphtheria was statistically greater than in unvaccinated children, symptoms showing in the vaccinated limb with 28 days of the initial injection. This scandal broke in Britain during 1949, an epidemic year for polio, other reports soon following from Australia. Papers dealing with this topic are plentiful.
One, British, gives details of 17 cases of polio which followed 28 days or less after various injections. Another, Australian, gives details of 340 cases of polio, 211 of which had been previously vaccinated against whooping cough and/or diphtheria. Of these, 35 had been vaccinated within the preceding 3 months and a further 30 within the previous year. Dr Geffen reported similar findings from the London borough of St Pancras, where 30 children under the age of 5 developed polio within four weeks of being immunised against diphtheria or whooping cough or both, the paralysis affecting, in particular, the limb of injection. Two medical statisticians at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine examined these reports and concluded that:
“In the 1949 epidemic of poliomyelitis in this country cases of paralysis were occurring which were associated with innoculation procedures carried out within the month preceding the recorded date of onset of the illness.”
Dr Arthur Gale of the Ministry of Health reported 65 cases from the Midlands, where paralysis followed about two weeks after an injection: in 49 of these, paralysis occurred in the injected limb. Then it was reported that of 112 cases of paralysis admitted to the Park Hospital, London, during 1947-1949, 14 were paralysed in the limb which had received one or more of a course of immunising injections within the previous two months. In the majority of cases, the interval between the last injection and the onset of paralysis was between 9 and 14 days. Again, combined whooping cough, diphtheria and tetanus injections were involved.
This outbreak of polio followed an intensive immunisation campaign during that time, 1947-49. Following these findings, the Ministry of Health recommended that diphtheria and triple vaccines should not be used in areas where polio was naturally present. “From that time onwards, the incidence of paralytic polio decreased rapidly in Britain, even prior to the advent of Salk vaccination….”
“Provocation polio. That is the truth about those outbreaks of polio. And I offer a well considered personal opinion that polio is a man made disease.”—Viera Scheibner (42).
A recent Romanian study demonstrated that injections of antibiotics following polio vaccination could cause polio. The researchers suggested the rate of “vaccine-induced polio” in Romania could be reduced from 10.3 per year to 1.4 per year, if antibiotic injections were avoided for 30 days following polio vaccination (41).
A study in India suggested that ¾ of cases of paralytic polio in the past decade were caused or made more severe by unnecessary injections (41) (The Lancet vol 341)).
3) Tonsillectomy: Doctor’s are starting to think that the polio epidemics of the 1940’s and 1950’s may have been caused by the high number of tonsillectomies done in the 1920’, 30’s and 40’s. They have discovered that the only area of the body that can synthesize the antibody to poliomyelitis is the tonsils. If you don’t have tonsils you can’t fight off polio.
“During the polio epidemics it was found that people who had their tonsils removed were 3-5 times more likely to develop paralysis….There were many at that time that suggested that polio was an iatrogenic disease…..we caused thousands of cases of paralysis. We did not cause the polio , but we converted people who would have recovered from a vial illness into people with a paralytic illness.”—Dr mark Donohue (41)
The paralysis associated with tonsillectomy was a type called ‘bulbar’—the worst, involving the lungs (41). 4) Hygiene. In an outbreak in Taiwan of 1.031 cases in 1982 they found children were 5 times more likely to contract polio if they received non-municipal water rather than municipal water.
POLIO CURED: Within 2 years after the discovery of ascorbic acid, Jungeblut showed it would inactivate the virus of poliomyelitis. This was pre-Salk. In 1949 Dr Klenner described his successful treatment of polio using Vitamin C, with many dramatic case histories(5). 97-100% recovered under correct Hygienic treatment 91%-100% recovered under certain chiropractic care 72% recovered under Nurse Kenny treatment 35% recovered with no professional care 17% recovered under medical care(8)! (Except for Klenner, who is really Nutritional/Orthomolecular/Metabolic Medicine)
Vitamin C in Acute Poliomyelitis: Greer, Medical Times, November 1955 “Large doses of vitamin C have proven beneficial in the management of five serious cases of acute poliomyelitis.” The Treatment of Poliomyelitis and Other Virus Diseases with Vitamin C:
Klenner, Southern Medicine & Surgery, July, 1949 “The treatment employed [in the poliomyelitis epidemic in North Carolina in 1948, 60 cases] was vitamin C in massive doses… given like any other antibiotic every two to four hours. The initial dose was 1000 to 2000 mg., depending on age. Children up to four years received the injections intramuscularly … For patients treated in the home the dose schedule was 2000 mg. by needle every six hours, supplemented by 1000 to 2000 mg. every two hours by mouth … dissolved in fruit juice … All patients were clinically well after 72 hours. Where spinal taps were performed, it was the rule to find a reversion of the fluid to normal after the second day of treatment.
