A History Lesson on Polio: Part IV (Where Are We Now?)

(Continued from: A History Lesson on Polio: Part III: Effectiveness & Diagnosis)

The following information was taken directly from the book: Vaccine Safety Manual. By: Neil Z. Miller, medical research journalist and Director of the Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute. The chapter on Polio comes referenced with 316 citations. 



According to the National Institutes of Health, between 1954 and 1963, up to 100 million Americans were inoculated with SV-40-contaminated polio vaccines (SV-40 is a monkey virus that infected nearly all rhesus monkeys, whose kidneys were used to produce polio vaccines). Studies  published in eminent journals throughout the world appear to confirm that SV-40 is a catalyst for many types of cancer. It has been found in brain tumors and leukemia. More recently, in 1996,  a molecular pathologist at Chicago’s Loyola University Medical Center, was able to detect SV-40 in 38 percent of patients with bone cancer and in 58 percent of those with mesothelioma, a deadly type of lung cancer.  The SV-40 virus can be passed from human to human and from mother to child in womb.

Mutated Polio Strains: Several years ago, the World Health Organization launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, with 2000 as its target date for eliminating the disease. However, by 2000 it became very clear that not only was polio still around, but new strains of the disease -derived from the vaccine itself- were emerging. Researchers first noticed something unusual in 1983. Outbreaks were being caused by vaccine-derived polio viruses. In 1993, it was discovered that strains of the polio virus had the ability to spontaneously recombine with themselves and create new strains. The researcher showed that if you vaccinate a child with polio strains 1, 2, and 3, you can produce a new strain, strain 4, out of the child’s stool.

The live virus OPV vaccine (although removed from U.S. vaccine schedule in 2000 and replaced with IPV) is still given to malnourished babies and children worldwide. 

In 2000, after further polio outbreaks, researches confirmed health authorities worst suspicions: the disease was caused by “an unusual viral derivative of the polio vaccine”. Health officials were concerned, “because a wild poliovirus had not circulated in the Western Hemisphere since 1991, and if the newly mutated polio vaccine spreads it could cause new epidemics of the disease.

People all over the world continue to be stricken with vaccine-derived polio viruses (VDPV’s)

Worldwide Polio Eradication: By 2007, worldwide polio eradication remained an elusive goal. Cases were recorded in at least 16 countries. It should also be noted that some children in foreign regions of the world are receiving “more than 12 doses of polio vaccine before their second birthday, yet they are still susceptible to the disease. Poor nutrition has been proposed as one of the possible reasons many children are not developing immunity after receiving multiple doses of the vaccine. At any rate, a precise timeline for polio eradication “remains unpredictable”.

How is Today’s Polio Vaccine Produced? Despite the polio vaccine’s long history of causing polio, and the manufacturer’s inability to protect the public from dangerous microorganisms that perpetually contaminate an ever expanding repertoire of “new and improved” products, the currently available inactivated, or “killed-virus” polio vaccine continues to be manufactured in much the same way as earlier versions. Animal matter and questionable drugs are still used. In the United States, today’s polio vaccine is a sterile suspension of three types of poliovirus. The viruses are grown in cultures of “a continuous line of money kidney cells…supplemented with newborn calf serum…” The vaccine also contains two antibiotics (neomycin and streptomycin) in addition to formaldehyde as a preservative.

 Are positive changes possible? Government officials worry that even debating the issue will frighten parents. Dr. Levine of the National Institute of Health says: “We do a grave disservice to the public if we were now to question the safety of the current polio vaccines”. We need to immediately determine the prevalence of stealth viruses of simian origin in United States and whether they may contributing factors to chronic immune system and brain disorders in children and adults.

In 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates called for the next 10 years to be the “decade of vaccines”.  The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has donated $ 10 billion dollars for a global vaccination campaign to eradicate polio. Since then, we have witnessed some pretty interesting results. Here is only one story.
INDIA: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation program in India was promoted as “The Last Mile: Eradicating polio in India” Since then, the wild polio virus has been traded for polio from vaccines and non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In India, over 47,000 cases of NPAFP were reported in 2011. The paralysis symptoms of NPAFP are practically the same as what’s attributed to “eradicated” wild virus polio. Apparently, vaccine polio viruses also cause polio paralysis. Read more (HERE)

We are in only the beginning stages of this multi-billion dollar campaign to “eradicate” polio worldwide.

Will polio ever be eradicated? Do you think the vaccine is the answer?

  1. Love this – Thanks so much for putting it all together so simply to review!! 🙂 PS…typo alert near the bottom….Read more. (you have “Red more” right now). One other completely unrelated point, because I do LOVE this series. If you are numbering Roman, i.e. I, II, III, etc. Four would be IV, not IIII. Just letting you know. My guess is you already know this, it was just a typo but wanted to mention it just in case. 🙂


      1. Right at the end of the India section. The last sentence of it. It says “Red more (Here)”. I’m guessing it is supposed to say “READ more (Here)”.


  2. Have you read about Bill Gates’s reported interest in eugenics? Not something anyone cares to hear who doesn’t already question vaccines. But I think it’s a real issue.


  3. It is so devastating to me that Americans want no part of the truth! I am so grateful that you are here sharing it! It breaks my heart every time I read this information on polio because my dad, whom I loved very much, suffered his whole life from paralytic polio contracted from that stupid round of vaccines in Idaho in the 50s. He got it from someone else who had gotten it from the vaccine. He knew the truth and taught me all about it, which I am so very grateful for, so that I wouldn’t make this mistake with my own children! They’ve renamed this awful disease so that they can keep passing the poison and the public will willingly accept it like a miracle cure.
