Vaccine Myth Exposed: Vaccines Did NOT Eradicate Polio!steemCreated with Sketch.

in health •  2 years ago 

One of the first things proponents of vaccination point to in support of vaccination is the eradication of polio. Even if they agree vaccines come at a risk, they believe the risk is well worth it because of the eradication of many infectious diseases, especially polio. But does the reward really outweigh the risks?

The only way the rewards for vaccinating could outweigh the risks is if there were actually rewards to begin with. But that doesn't seem to be the case with polio. Yes, almost everyone believes that vaccines eradicated polio. But that doesn't make it true. In fact, just about everyone that I've talked to didn't know much about polio before I told them what I'm about to tell you. The only things that most people know about polio is:

  • vaccines eradicated polio
  • polio causes paralysis
  • one of our presidents was paralyzed from polio
Why are people so limited in their understanding of polio, yet feel so strongly that vaccines are what eradicated polio?

A Few Important Things To Know About Polio

  • Polio thrives in fecal matter, which is how it's primarily transmitted
  • Polio often times isn't paralytic
  • Most cases of paralytic polio go away within a few days

What Really Eradicated Polio

  • Changes in the diagnostic methods
  • Improved sanitation
  • Discontinued use of toxins that damage the central nervous system (such as DDT)

The CDC Changed How Polio Was Diagnosed

By simply changing how polio was diagnosed, they changed the rate at which it was diagnosed. The CDC made 2 radical changes in the diagnostic parameters and to the labeling of the disease based on symptoms.

Pre-vaccine, you only had to have paralysis for one day in order to be diagnosed with polio. But they changed that diagnostic parameter to 2 months after the vaccine was introduced! That means that all of the non-paralytic cases of polio were instaneously reclassified as something else. And most paralytic cases of polio went away within a few days so those didn't count either. Those 2 categories of polio cases (non-paralytic & paralysis of short duration) amounted to about 85% of all polio cases. The CDC eliminating those categories of polio cases from the official numbers, and that's how polio was "eradicated," not by vaccines.

The CDC also made changes involving analysis of cerebrospinal fluid and stool and additional testing, which inevitably made it less likely that any cases of paralytic polio would be diagnosed.

Polio-like Symptoms Were Reclassified As Other Diseases

Since most cases of polio weren't being diagnosed as polio anymore, they had to start labeling those cases with other diseases. People with the same symptoms that would have gotten a diagnosis of polio before were now being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), viral or “aseptic” meningitis, acute flaccid paralysis, among other things.

One of the many great points I make in my post about flu shots is that even the CDC admits that the flu vaccine may cause GBS in some cases. Most people have no idea that people today still get symptoms that would have been diagnosed as polio during the days of the polio scare.

The Definition Of A Polio Epidemic Was Changed Too

Prior to the introduction of the Salk vaccine, 20 cases of polio reported per year per 100,000 population. After the Salk vaccine, it took 35 cases of polio per year per 100,000 population to be considered an epidemic. By changing the parameters for polio to be an epidemic, and changing the diagnostic parameters, they ensured there wouldn't be another epidemic. This set the stage for the vaccine to be touted as the cause for the eradication of polio.

Plumbing and Improved Sanitation Eradicated Polio

Since polio was primarily transmitted in fecal matter, by simply improving sanitation they reduced the occurrence of polio cases. This has nothing to do with vaccines. Up until the 1800s, bathing was considered to be a potential cause of illness. Many people didn't bathe often, and fecal matter was often discarded in any way that was convenient.

Toxins Produced Symptoms Identical To Polio

Environmental toxins such as DDT, BHC, pesticides, lead, and arsenic produced the same symtoms as the polio virus, including lesions. In the article linked to below and shown in the video above, it shows graphs with a high correlation between the use of these toxic substances and polio cases reported. This suggests that many cases of polio weren't actually caused by the polio virus. By simply removing these toxins from our environment, we greatly reduced the chances of someone having polio-like symptoms.

In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. Such statistics are never discussed when the success of a vaccine program is announced, yet it is a health outcome of the vaccine that should be taken into account

Dr. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine in 1955. He used dead polio viruses. In 1976, he testified before a congressional committee that the live-virus (oral) vaccine (for practical purposes, the only kind used in America since the early 1960s) was “the principal, if not the sole cause” of all reported polio cases since 1961.

The next year Dr. Salk made this statement in Science magazine:

“The live polio virus vaccine has been the predominant cause of domestically arising cases of paralytic poliomyelitis in the United States since 1972. To avoid the occurrence of such cases, it would be necessary to discontinue the routine use of live polio vaccine.”—Dr. Jonas Salk, Science, April 4, 1977.

"Polio has not been eradicated by vaccination, it is lurking behind a redefinition and new diagnostic names like viral or aseptic meningitis. When the first, injectible polio vaccine was tested on some 1.8 million children in the United States in 1954, within 9 days there was huge epidemic of paralytic polio in the vaccinated and some of their parents and other contacts. The US Surgeon General discontinued the trial for 2 weeks." Doctor Viera Scheibner PhD

how many examples we need? I didn't even mention SV40

Great comment! I think I'll make a more comprehensive post on polio. The Salk vaccine was a disaster! It's beyond me how people still don't know this, yet feel so strongly about vaccines eradicating polio!


I can't stand what the CDC has been doin to people over the year. My dad had polio as a kid and the result was a deformed let that didn't allow him to participate in sports which he loved soo much. But that hasn't stopped him. Even at the age of 67 he still does a ton of hiking and many other outdoor activities.
The blatant lies and constrewed numbers produced by many government agencies, fool the average sheep. With so many people having their eyes opened to this sort of evil, it can't hide forever. Darkness can't hide in the light.
Great informative write up!!

Thanks. And I agree: it's only a matter of time til we hit the tipping point and what's in the dark will come to light. I'm trying my best to be a catalyst to make the world a better place.

Great and educational read! I also notice how people use polio as their example to why they believe in vaccines and/or how vaccines have changed the world. When I ask them what they know about polio or the vaccination, they have little to no knowledge. You posed a great question, "Why are people so limited in their understanding of polio, yet feel so strongly that vaccines are what eradicated polio? " as well as a great explanation. Thanks for sharing and spreading awareness! Great post


Thank you.

A wonderful post. @arevolution followedd

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.
Correlations with the injections of antibiotics were found: a single injection within one month of vaccination raised the risk of polio 8 times, 2 to 9 injections raised the risk 27-fold, and 10 injections or more raised the risk 182 times (Washington Post, Feb 22, 1995).


Neomycin, streptomycin, and polymyxin B

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

You can control Polio to a certain amount if you increase sanitation.
But dou you really think that India is now Polio free because they have so high hygienic standards?

India polio free? Haven't you head about the thousands of people who were paralyzed by the polio vaccine there? Look it up. They probably changed the diagnostic parameters there too, in order to "eradicate" polio.

now they just call it GBS

polio harmful for every human.

if 1 child is left un immunized, we are all at risk

That is ridiculous! We aren't 100% immunized for anything, so that means we are all at risk for everything? Besides, no vaccine is ever claimed to be 100% effective. So that means we're all at risk? Did you even read my post?

People seem to "think" health comes from laboratories and not food LOL ;)

i think you should recheck your facts on polio, vaccination works but if 1 child is not immunized, we are all at risk of polio, i live in a nation still having polio so i know.

Did you read my post? Why don't you check my facts and dispute them? You can't just say you live in a nation with polio and by that debunk my post lol We still have polio-like symptoms, but it's just not called polio anymore. Do you not have polio vaccines where you're from?

many illness share same symptoms, for you to be diagnosed with a particular illness, you must have showed signs of at least two or 3 symptoms associated with that particular illness. example: Breathing difficulty is exhibited by Amyloidosis, Anaphylaxis, Angioedema, Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Food Allergy, Histoplasmosis, Hypothermia, Myeloproliferative
Disorders, Peritonitis. do you now classify any difficulty in breathing as just a food poisoning case?

yes same symptoms !! ever hear of Mycoplasma?
ALL vaccines are contaminated! with what? who knows they don't check!

"The key word here is "detectable". You can only find what you have a test to identify. Fetal bovine serum, even batches previously passed by the FDA and WHO, has been repeatedly documented to be contaminated with several different viruses. And every year, new viruses come to the surface, and new tests have to be devised to test for them. The point is that there is absolutely no guarantee that these vaccines do not contain something that is unable to be detected at this time, but which more advanced testing might show up in the future. This is why the manufacturers cover themselves with the word ‘detectable’ – because they can only be held liable at any future date for those things which were able to be identified at the date of manufacture."--Hilary Butler

So the question is what's in your vaccine?
Bird viruses
Chicken viruses
Bacillus cereus
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) DNA
Simian cytomegalovirus
Pig viruses
Porcine circovirus DNA
SV40 Cancer
Etc etc

Ever hear of trade secrets? (peanut oil).
what about Glyphosate? (soy peptone broth). GMO
Someone needs to research just a little.
