What do you know about Polio?

What do you know about Polio?

Santhy George.
I have put together a commentary on the history and the horrifying truth about the polio vaccine. It's long, and is mostly made up of quotes from credible sources. The caps (for emphasis) are mine.
"During the first half of the 1950s, Jonas Salk, MD developed the first injectable vaccine against polio containing inactivated, or “killed”, strains of the poliovirus.
As a dead, rather than live, virus vaccine, Dr. Salk’s IPV supposedly carried no risk of giving recipients “vaccine-associated polio paralysis.”
...
The poliovirus that Dr. Salk killed with formalin, or formaldehyde, were not always killed; they sometimes only APPEARED to be killed.
Live poliovirus, which was put in an injectable vaccine, would appear to be inactivated right after it was made, but sometimes it would ‘resurrect’ in the vial… In essence, the formaldehyde did not kill off all the polioviruses in these vaccines, which led to live polio viruses being injected. As a result, more people developed PARALYSIS FROM THE VACCINE in 1955 than would have developed it from a wild, normal natural poliovirus.
...
During mid-April of 1955, about 400,000 people—mostly schoolchildren—in the U.S. were vaccinated with the Salk vaccine manufactured by Cutter Laboratories. It turns out that more than 200,000 of these children, living in five western and midwestern states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada and New Mexico), were injected with vaccines “in which the process of inactivating the live virus proved to be defective.” The Cutter-produced VACCINES ENDED UP CAUSING 40,000 CASES OF POLIO. It severely paralyzed 200 children and killed 10.
...
In his book The Cutter Incident: How America’s First Polio Vaccine Led to the Growing Vaccine Crisis, Paul Offit, MD writes, “Seventy-five percent of Cutter’s victims were paralyzed for the rest of their lives.”
...
Children given Cutter’s vaccine were more likely to be paralyzed in their arms, more likely to suffer severe and permanent paralysis, more likely to require breathing assistance in iron lungs, and more likely to die than children naturally infected with polio.
The so-called “Cutter Incident” led to the recall of the Cutter vaccine and the eventual replacement of the Salk IPV with the attenuated (weakened) live oral polio vaccine (OPV) developed by Albert Sabin, MD and introduced in 1963."
All of this is well-documented history. The vaccine industry's favourite doctor, Paul Offit, has even written a book about it (quoted above). But he conveniently leaves out many of the facts. For one, this was not a tragedy that happened without warning. The health authorities knew about the potential lethality of this vaccine, yet they went ahead with it.
"Unfortunately, whenever scientists involved in the vaccine’s development raised concerns that poliovirus had not been fully killed, they were “rapidly subdued.”
As a result of IGNORING the warnings by highly qualified SCIENTISTS who repeatedly and publicly explained why and how the inactivation process was flawed from the beginning, the vaccine virus needlessly infected, paralyzed, and KILLED children and their household contacts."
As if that wasn't bad enough,
"... the fact that some improperly inactivated lots of the original polio vaccine paralyzed and killed American children was CONCEALED from the public for a long time.
In their book Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History, Suzanne Humphries, MD and Roman Bystrianyk write, “You may be wondering how this information was concealed from the public for nearly fifty years. Congressman Percy Priest ordered and chaired a full investigation of the vaccine controversy.” According to them, Congressman Priest, who represented the 6th District of Tennessee, admitted in 1956 that,
… in the previous year (1955) many responsible persons had felt that the public should be spared the ordeal of ‘knowledge about controversy.’ If word ever got out that the Public Health Service had actually done something damaging to the health of the American people, the CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE TERRIBLE… We felt that no lasting good could come to science or the public if the Public Health Services were discredited.”
So the reputation of the health services took priority over the health and lives of innocent children. As Dr Humphries says, so much for evidence-based medicine and scientific truth. But there's worse.
"Cutter Laboratories was not the only manufacturer of the the Salk IPV. Wyeth Laboratories also produced a defective Salk vaccine that caused paralysis. Other pharmaceutical companies are believed to have done so, as well. But only Cutter’s vaccine was recalled. This means that, potentially, tens of millions of doses of improperly inactivated “live” Salk vaccine were sold and injected into children in the U.S. and around the world until the “inactivated” Salk vaccine was replaced by the live oral Sabin vaccine in the early 1960s.
This may help explain, at least partially, why the cases of polio in the U.S. INCREASED by 50% from 1957 to 1958, and by 80% between 1958 and 1959."
That does not fit the popular narrative, does it? We are told of the glorious triumph of science over disease, and of how the polio vaccine drastically reduced polio rates, saving countless lives. How is that possible?
"... the reason the number of polio cases in the U.S. dropped so precipitously following the mass introduction of the Salk vaccine in 1955 was NOT MEDICAL, but rather administrative. Yes it’s true, in 1952 there were 52,879 reported cases of polio in the U.S. And yes, in 1955 the number went down to 28,985, and by 1959 it had dropped to 8,425. But first of all, it’s important to note that the numbers were already declining significantly prior to the initial use of the Salk vaccine. In 1953, there were 35,592 cases of polio in the U.S. So there were other things going on in the U.S. at the time totally unrelated to the Salk vaccine."
More importantly, though, in 1954 the U.S. government simply REDEFINED POLIO.
...
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.
...
Under the new definition of polio, thousands of cases which would have previously been counted as polio would no longer be counted as polio. The change in the definition laid the groundwork for creating the impression that the Salk vaccine was effective."
"In five New England states cases of polio roughly DOUBLED after polio vaccine was introduced. Nevertheless in the midst of the polio panic of the 1950s, with pressure to find a magic bullet, statistics were MANIPULATED by health authorities to give quite the opposite impression.
...
History is indeed a powerful thing. If you teach it wrong for more than half a century, it is hard to unteach, because a particular version of a story can become so ingrained in the public’s collective memory that few can accept that what we’ve come to believe to be an unquestioned scientific truth is, in fact, a MYTH.
And if that sacred cow is an illusion, then what else may we have gotten wrong along the way? Suddenly, mainstream vaccine science doesn’t feel so certain, so… scientific."
"When people ask me where all the children on iron lungs are, I would answer that they should ask Dr. Douglas Kerr from Johns Hopkins, who stated on pg. xv in the Forward to Donna Jackson Nakazawa’s book “The Autoimmune Epidemic”…
“Infants as young as five months old can get Transverse Myelitis, and some are left permanently paralyzed and dependent upon a ventilator to breathe… my colleagues at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and I hear about or treat hundreds of new cases every year.”
Does the public have any idea that there are hundreds of cases of something that would once have been called polio, and some of those children will be dependent on a modern version of the iron lung? No. Parents today think that the Salk vaccine eliminated any need for ventilators, because the pictures of all these children on iron lungs are no longer paraded in front of people in order to create fear. Besides which, today’s “iron lungs” don’t look like a prototype submarine. They are barely recognizable as today’s “ventilators.”" - Dr Suzanne Humphries
This is especially relevant to us here in India. I was shocked when I first realised that for all practical purposes, polio has not been eradicated in India, it is still very much prevalent (in disguise, and twice as deadly). It's the same old trick, it is now known by many other names, including Guillain Barré Syndrome (GBS) and Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP).
But before we get into that, this needs to be mentioned:
"A modified inactivated Salk vaccine was re-introduced in the 1990s after the only cases of polio occurring in the U.S. were vaccine strain polio cases because live OPV can CAUSE VACCINE STRAIN POLIO IN THE RECIPIENT or a close contact of a recently vaccinated person shedding live vaccine strain polio virus in body fluids."
Basically, the CDC had discovered that OPV was causing polio, so they dropped it from their vaccine schedule in the US. But it continues to be used in India to this day, and it spreads polio, and that is used as a reason for even more polio drives. How convenient for the vaccine industry. Remember the scare a couple of years ago about polio virus being discovered in Hyderabad? It was the vaccine strain of polio, but of course the implications of that detail never received any media attention.
"Oral polio vaccine (OPV) has failed to provide full protection to many children who have developed paralytic polio even after taking 10 or more doses of OPV. In some children, OPV has caused paralysis-vaccine associated paralytic polio (VAPP). Number of children DEVELOPING POLIO DUE TO VACCINE IS HIGH and on increase."

"Furthermore, while India has been polio-free for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO DOSES OF ORAL POLIO received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was NOT INVESTIGATED."

I have personal experience with this. A few years ago, following a bout of cold/fever, my fully vaccinated 3 yr old nephew suddenly became paralysed from the waist down and lost the ability to walk. Doctors couldn't figure out the reason. Desperate for answers, I posted in my vaccine awareness groups. When I said we live in India, someone immediately said it must be polio. What?! I thought polio was eradicated? Imagine our shock when shortly after that he was diagnosed with polio. The doctor later changed the diagnosis to Acute Flaccid Paralysis, but that's just another term for polio. By God's grace, after a few nerve-racking days my nephew started walking again and it was acclaimed as a 'spontaneous recovery'. I was determined to learn more, and learn I definitely did.
By the way, did you know that you could have polio and not even know it? It's one of the many, many, little details I learned.
"95% of all individuals infected with polio have no apparent symptoms. Another 4%–8% of infected individuals have symptoms of a minor, non-specific nature, such as sore throat and fever, nausea, vomiting, and other common symptoms of any viral illness. About 1%–2% of infected individuals develop non-paralytic aseptic (viral) meningitis, with temporary stiffness of the neck, back, and/or legs. Less than 1% of all polio infections result in the classic “flaccid paralysis,” where the patient is left with permanent weakness or paralysis of legs, arms, or both."

Most of the above quotes are from this article (unless mentioned otherwise), and references can be found towards the end: https://idsent.wordpress.com/…/the-salk-polio-vaccine-trag…/
But the best resource on this topic is the book 'Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History' by Dr Suzanne Humphries and Roman Bystrianyk. According to Jeffrey Dach MD, "Dr Suzanne Humphries makes a compelling argument that infectious disease was conquered by improved sanitation and nutrition, and not by vaccination programs which were either ineffective, or actually increased the mortality." The book is brilliantly researched and extremely well referenced. One cannot ask for better evidence than what the authors have provided, the book has over 800 solid references.
Dr Humphries has made the chapter on polio available for free, that one chapter alone has 143 references, and it documents many more shocking details than the concise article quoted above covers, including the well documented link between DDT and polio, and the contamination of the polio vaccine with the potentially cancer causing SV40 monkey virus (from the monkey kidneys used in vaccine manufacturing).
