[2013 Jan] "Just two drops" takes two lives in Odisha, India.
The nationwide pulse polio programme on 20th January claimed two innocent lives in Balasore district of Odisha. Angry villagers have kept captive the doctors team who went to investigate. While one death has been ascribed to a "pre-existing condition", for the other no explanation was given. Unconfirmed sources have however conceded that the Oral Polio Vaccine is the culprit. One victim is a one year old child and the other one and a half month old. No compensation has been declared. The Postmortem reports are awaited.   Chatterjee, Jagannath

At the main hospital in Mbarara during that month of 1977 more than 600 children had died following polio vaccination. 600 children !  A Transcript of a talk given by Kihura Nkuba (Nov 2002)

No wonder Dr. Salk said on Oct. 11, 1 954—as reported from Pittsburgh by Saul Pett, Associated Press writer—"When you inoculate children with a polio vaccine you don’t sleep well for two or three weeks"

"Salk vaccine is hard to make and no batch can ever be proved safe before it is given to children." ---Dr. Scheele (Surgeon General) before Atlantic City Convention of the American Association 1955 -New York Times June 8, 1955

 Go to your medical library, and ask to see the United States Polio Surveillance Unit's bulletins, from 1955 to 1970.
    They will be listed as "missing".
    Every single medical library in USA, that someone checked out for me, and New Zealand (and possible other countries) has them listed as "missing".
    There is only one place you can see them, as far as I know, and that is in the AMA library, and they are listed as having top security clearance requirements to see, according to someone who tried to access them.
    Why might this be? When he was alive, Dr Ratner had copies of them at his home. He gave me many of the years' data I wanted. They clearly showed that from the inception of the SALK vaccine, to it's discontinuation, the vaccine had MINUS efficacy and was actually causing more polio in the vaccinated than in the unvaccinated.
    Any studious person looking at Government stats in retrospect, would be able to easily see that the polical and media canonization of SALK and his vaccine was a mirage of duplicity upon duplicity

 In 1954 Eddy was fifty-one years old. Born in a mining town in West Virginia, she got a Ph.D. in 1927 from the University of Cincinnati and came to Washington during the Great Depression to work at the Hygienic Laboratory, as she continued to call it. Her job from then until she retired in 1973 was the safety testing of vaccines.
In 1954 the rush was on. Her lab had gotten samples of the inactivated polio vaccine to certify on a "due-yesterday" basis. "This was a product that had never been made before and they were going to use it right away,” she recalled. She and her staff worked around the clock. "We had eighteen monkeys. We inoculated these eighteen monkeys with each vaccine that came in. And we started getting paralyzed monkeys." She reported to her superiors that the lots were Cutter's, and sent pictures of the paralyzed monkeys along as well. "They were going to be injecting this thing into children."
    William Sebrell, the director of the NIH, stopped by the animal house where they were working, not to thank her for blowing the whistle but to ask if she and her co-workers wanted their children immunized with the vaccine, as it was in short supply. "I thanked him but said that my children had escaped polio so far and that I preferred to wait until the testing program was over before having them immunized," said Eddy. "Everyone there turned down the offer."
    She heard nothing more about her report and never got the photographs back. "They went ahead and released the vaccine anyway, a lot of it. The monkeys they just disregarded." [Book extract. The Health Century] Dr. Bernice E. Eddy, whose lab tests found that the Cutter vaccine had been improperly inactivated.

"In the Rimavex measles vaccine, we found various chicken viruses. In polio vaccine, we found acanthamoeba, which is a so-called "brain-eating" amoeba.  Simian cytomegalovirus in polio vaccine. Simian foamy virus in the rotavirus vaccine. Bird-cancer viruses in the MMR vaccine. Various micro-organisms in the anthrax vaccine. I've found potentially dangerous enzyme inhibitors in several vaccines. Duck, dog, and rabbit viruses in the rubella vaccine. Avian leucosis virus in the flu vaccine. Pestivirus in the MMR vaccine......And if you try to calculate what damage these contaminants can cause, well, we don't really know, because no testing has been done, or very little testing. It's a game of roulette. You take your chances........And I'm just mentioning some of the biological contaminants. Who knows how many others there are? Others we don't find because we don't think to look for them. If tissue from, say, a bird is used to make a vaccine, how many possible germs can be in that tissue? We have no idea.We have no idea what they might be, or what effects they could have on humans."----Jon Rappoport interview of ex vaccine researcher (2001)

"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.

"Then suddenly the deaths from Salk vaccine ceased to be reported. In a letter published in Defender Magazine, the writer stated: "I am informed by someone who works in a newspaper office that much of the bad news concerning the results of the Salk Program is being censored and deleted out of the news to keep people complacent and acquiescent.""--Eleanor McBean

"Today, polio has virtually been wiped out in the United States. But so has it from those European countries that voiced doubts about the vaccine in the 1950s and chose not to institute mandatory inoculations."    It's a shocking perspective, but as one goes down the list of other vaccines - diptheria, measles, mumps, rubella - every last one's history bears out the same disturbing correlations. Low rates of vaccine effectiveness. Suspicious upticks in disease incidence after the vaccines' introduction."---Martin Goldstein, D.V.M.

"Dr. Thomas Francis did not mention in his key evaluation of the 1954 Salk field trials that those who contracted polio after their first innoculation and before their second inoculation were placed in the "not-inoculated" list.' (Maurice B. Bayly, The Story Of The Salk Anti-poliomyelitis Vaccine, 1956).

"Dr. Eddy was aware that people were using monkey kidney cells to make polio vaccine. She had an interest in polio vaccine. She took extracts from monkey kidney cells that were being used for testing polio vaccines, injected the extracts into hamsters and observed that the hamsters developed cancers. She took that information to Dr. Smadel, her boss at the time, who totally dismissed it, saying that she was wrong, that they were lumps, not cancers.  Some months later, I think in 1960, out of frustration, while she was at a meeting on polyoma viruses in New York, she mentioned, by the way, that one could also get cancers using Rhesus monkey kidney cell extracts. She was severely chastised by her boss and others for daring to raise the possibility that there could be oncogenic activity in poliomyelitis. Dr. Sabin was upset by this. Everybody was upset."--Dr Martin MD

"The one virus which we were able to isolate and characterize is unmistakably African green monkey cytomegalovirus. I had notified centers for disease control by way of a manuscript and a request to transfer some of this information when I first had it, which was back in 1994, without any real success, but when the data was unequivocal, which was in 1995, we contacted the Bureau. At that stage, we were really just trying to get some reassurance that they no longer used monkey kidneys to make polio vaccines and were told that unfortunately they still did.....The issue of interest with HIV vaccines and so forth. .. it is known that African green monkeys have a retrovirus called simian immunodeficiency virus, SIV. There is a general relationship between SIV and HIV, though they’re not that closely related that, by normal kinetic mechanisms, one could see that they were both coming together. What is of interest is the fact that the African green monkeys brought out in the early part of the century to America were SIV negative...The question is as to whether or not SIV infections in the monkeys in Africa may have, in fact, been introduced in this century and were not an infection that predated hundreds of years but, rather, was introduced into the monkeys in some of the early experimentation done in vaccine development, and there’s a real interesting argument that, in fact, man may have infected African monkeys which then, in turn, processed the virus and returned it back to man in the form of HIV."--Dr Martin

"Live polio viral vaccines are still made in African green monkey kidney cells today, now. I will spend some time if you want me to go on to current efforts to redress this problem, but at the moment, live polio virus vaccines are still made in kidney cells of African green monkeys, and the monkeys used are sero positive. Besides the megalovirus, there’s no reason not to suspect that cytomegalovirus would not be present in these vaccines."--Dr Martin MD

"The Salk vaccine failed completely (we'll issue a special report on that at a later date). And the Sabin vaccine was a disaster. It caused many cases of polio and showed no relationship to the disease except for an increase in polio during the early '60s, caused by the vaccine itself. And now we have the sensational findings from the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, which strongly indicate that polio did not go away at all, but now manifests itself as chronic fatigue syndrome."--William Douglas MD

"That the polio virus is the sole cause of polio is accepted by most people as gospel, and that the Salk and Sabin vaccines eradicated polio in the western world is etched into our collective consciousness as the major medical miracle of our time. But the history of polio and its vaccines is shrouded in a murky mist of politico/scientific manipulation, altered statistics, redefinition and reclassification of the disease, increased cases of vaccine induced paralytic polio, and monkey viruses transmitted by contaminated vaccines to millions of people worldwide."---Edda West

"Polio vaccine, not only did not wipe out polio, as the proponents had claimed, but it actually increased it over 300% in some of the states which had compulsory polio vaccination, and the polio was in the vaccinated."--E McBean (p23 Vaccination Condemned)

    "The serious problem of HeLa cell contamination in cancer and vaccine research is revealed in Michael Gold's  A  Conspiracy of Cells: One Woman's Immortal Legacy and the Medical Scandal It Caused.  Even Jonas Salk, who developed the legendary  Salk polio vaccine, was fooled when HeLa cells  contaminated his animal cell lines. He admitted this years later in 1978 before a stunned audience of cell biologists and vaccine makers. In experiments performed in the late 1950s  on dying cancer patients,  Salk tried injecting them with a cell line of monkey heart tissue - the same cell line he used to harvest polio virus for his famous vaccine. He hoped the monkey cell injections would stimulate the immune system to fight cancer. However, when abcesses developed at the site of injections Salk began to suspect that he might be injecting HeLa cells rather than monkey cells,  and he stopped the experiment.
    Mark Nelson-Rees, a HeLa cell expert and one of the 1978 conference attendees,  offered to test Salk's line if it was still available. Salk graciously agreed and the monkey cells indeed proved to be HeLa cells which had invaded and taken over the monkey cell line. According to author Gold, Salk thought there were adequate ways to separate viruses from the tissue cell lines  they were harvested in, so that it really didn't matter what kind of cells were used. Even  if vaccines weren't filtered, and even if whole cancer cells were injected directly into a human,  Salk believed they would be rejected by the body and cause no harm. In those days doctors didn't much believe in cancer-causing viruses. Nowadays, no researcher would dare try  injecting cancer cells into a human being. But in the 1950s Salk had done it accidently. He had injected HeLa cells into a few dozen patients and it hadn't bothered him a bit."--Alan Cantwell MD

"Within a few years of the polio vaccine we started seeing some strange phenomena like the year before the first 300,000 doses were given in the United States childhood leukaemia had never struck in children under the age of two. One year after the first onslaught they had the first cases of children under the age of two that died of leukaemia........ Dr Herbert Radnor observed that in a small area of this little town, in an area where no cases of leukaemia had been expected or at the most one in 4 years according to previous statistics, they suddenly had a rash like an epidemic within a few blocks"---Dr Snead

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.

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.

"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 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?   Also, the report covering somewhat less than 5 years and since the Sabin Vaccine has been utilized starting in 1961 a period of almost 35 years has passed. Therefore, one can now multiply each of the above noted figures by about 7 to find out what the Sabin ‘live’ vaccine has cost us. We are now talking about a considerable amount of individuals who have had problems. Real people! We wonder why none of this was not presented at the workshop?  Finally it should be noted, that in the introduction of the OPV Vaccine report, a reference is made to a review of a different vaccine report covering the period July 1990 to October 1993. That report was included to bring to our attention that “the majority of doctors did not want to report the event” and therefore that there is a problem of underreporting of vaccine reactions. This implies a similar situation for our report. "--The Polio Connection of America
