The Polio Vaccine Myth: “The Vaccine Stopped Polio”

advertisement - learn more

Polio was a feared disease in the mid 1900’s. The disease touched many people around the world and created a great deal of fear when it was talked about. It is not surprising when you look at some of the effects polio placed on some patients. There eventually was a decline in polio cases and it created quite a debate about whether or not it was a natural decline or another vaccine success.

Whenever vaccine doubt begins to surface there is often a common response: “Look at the success of the Polio vaccine when there was Polio outbreaks in the late 40’s and early 50’s.” However, scientific data can quickly show a different story that we must take into consideration when carefully analyzing what actually stopped Polio.

The Pertussis Polio vaccine was implemented in the 1940’s and 50’s and many believed it to be the cause of the decrease in Polio cases, including the reason behind why we do not see Polio cases today. Is this the real reason why Polio has dissapeared?

First let’s understand a bit about Polio and how “dangerous” it really is. the following is stated in a paper written by Dr. Sheri Tenpenny, one of the leading researchers of vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Polioviruses are transient inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract. Up to 95% of all polio infections are completely asymptomatic. Approximately 5% of polio infections consist of a minor, nonspecific illness consisting of an upper respiratory tract infection (sore throat and fever) and gastrointestinal disturbances (nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea). This influenza-like illness, clinically indistinguishable from the myriad of other viral illnesses, is characterized by complete recovery in less than a week with resultant life time immunity. Less than 1% of all polio infections result in paralysis. Most importantly, the vast majority of individuals who contract paralytic poliomyelitis recover with complete—or near complete—return of muscle function. Any weakness that is still present 12 months after onset of paralysis is usually considered permanent.

Off the top it first appears as though we may have been misled about how dangerous Polio really is. When Polio outbreaks were happening in the late 50’s and early 60’s, many of the adverse effects were due to the lack of clean conditions. The truth is over 90% of the cases where people contracted Polio, the symptoms experienced were very minute. Most symptoms included a slight fever, headache, sore throat, and vomiting. The recovery time was 24 – 72 hrs. Once recovered, the person now has a life time immunity to Polio. 5% of people who contracted Polio had less symptoms and recovery time was much less. They would see some sore throat and possibly a fever. Rare cases saw diarrhea. Then we get to 3% of people who had a bit more extreme cases where they may have seen some limb weakness and partial paralysis that would be experienced for 2 – 10 days. This only happened when areas of the brain that controlled limbs were irritated by a form of viral meningitis. All cases saw a complete recovery and life long immunity. Now we get to the worst cases of them all. Less than 2% of cases saw some form of more serious paralysis. Of that 2% though 50% saw complete recovery over time from the paralysis.

As you really begin to look at the numbers, the amount of very serious cases is actually a very very small number. Yet when we hear the word Polio today, we tend to think of an extremely dangerous illness that causes certain paralysis. This is very much similar to AIDS in that fear drives us to act in and think in ways that is worse than the actuality of the disease itself. It also seems to be the case that the fear and emotion around the disease is so strong that we have a hard time truly looking at it logically.

Let’s move onto how Polio declined and how it relates to the vaccine. Why not start with a statement of fact that will set the tone for what will be looked at below.

In 1977, Dr Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, testified along with other scientists that mass inoculation against polio was the cause of most polio cases throughout the USA since 1961. (Science 4/4/77 “Abstracts” )

The above statement states the truth of the vaccine in a nutshell. The Polio vaccine only increased the amount of cases of Polio when it was introduced and it had no part in actually creating a decline in the disease. The decline was happening naturally and the vaccine was introduced on a down turn of Polio cases. While the introduction of the vaccine created a spike in cases, overall the disease continued to decline. Especially in countries that did not introduce the vaccine. This is strong evidence showing that the Polio vaccine is not responsible for the decline and should negate the belief and statement that the Polio vaccine demonstrates vaccine success. Below, see research that reflects what it stated above.

Six New England states reported increases in polio one year after the Salk vaccine was introduced, ranging from more than doubling in Vermont to Massachusetts’ astounding increase of 642%; other states reported increases as well. The incidence in Wisconsin increased by a factor of five. Idaho and Utah actually halted vaccination due to the increased incidence and death rate. In 1959, 77.5% of Massachusetts’ paralytic cases had received 3 doses of IPV (injected polio vaccine). During 1962 U.S. Congressional hearings, Dr. Bernard Greenberg, head of the Dept. of Biostatistics for the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, testified that not only did the cases of polio increase substantially after mandatory vaccinations—a 50% increase from 1957 to 1958, and an 80% increase from 1958 to 1959—but that the statistics were deliberately manipulated by the Public Health Service to give the opposite impression.(52) It is important to understand that the polio vaccine was not universally accepted, at least initially. Despite this, polio declined both in European countries that refused mass vaccination as well as in those that employed it.

As the natural decrease in Polio cases began in the early 50’s, we can clearly see that in countries where the Polio vaccine was introduced cases actually increased. In areas where Polio was non existent, Polio began to show up when the vaccine was introduced to the area. In countries that did not implement the vaccine, Polio became non existent. Eventually the natural decline of Polio meant that even though we still use the vaccine, most vaccinated will not contract the virus because there is an immunity to it. It is important to note though that cases after 1961, as shown above, are due to the vaccine itself.

One final piece of information that is important to note is that the Polio vaccine used had traces of the SV 40 virus which is directly linked to the creation of cancer within the body. Speculatively, one of the main purposes behind vaccines is to inject the population with ‘codes’ that open the body up to the ability to contract diseases much more easily. The science behind vaccinations has long been proven to be completely ineffective and the continued use of vaccines only shows the real purpose behind them.

One step we can all take to not subject anyone to vaccines is by simply not getting them anymore and education others. For parents of newborn children, be sure to read the following article to find out how to legally get out of “mandatory” vaccinations. Not a single vaccine is necessary in any human body.

  1. very interesting stuff. For those of us that received several vaccinations when we were younger, is there a way to undo the effects of whatever codes one has already been injected with?

    • Go see a Naturopath, that’s what I did for my daughter

    • Wrapping your head in tinfoil will do it.

      • Terry

        You never become immune from Whooping cough! I have seen the evidence of this.

        I have a compromised immune system. I have been immunized. I was not old enough for the chicken pox vaccine and now live with debilitating symptoms akin to shingles. Nothing so far stops this condition and unless you have been there shut up.

        I have the flu vaccine every year and hope that others do the same because if they dont they can kill me!

        But then hey you dont care!

        • A person can lose their immunity to everything — that’s what happens with AIDS among other diseases. I knew a person who had chicken pox as a child, and then again in college due to a compromised immune condition.

          Vaccines help when there is a compromised immune system, but not as well as with healthy people.

        • Diana Adare

          I never had the vaccine Chicken Pox and none of my friends did either, too young. I also contracted chicken pox when I was around 5 or 6 and then soon after Shingles. Which is rare and I have a scar on my chest from it. I am fine now. I would have to say that as you are an adult I am sure your diet is related. Do you eat sugar, wheat flour, processed foods? These are the things that will compromise your immune system. Try eating vegetables and rice and see how much your immune system improves. All the best to you.

    • claire

      No. A vaccine isn’t any sort of “code” or something like that. And you wouldn’t want to undo them. All a vaccine does is promote your immune system being able to fight a particular disease off should you come in contact with it. Often, as in the salk vaccine, you are given a killed bacteria or virus. This let’s your body look at it and begin mounting a defense without being at risk of actually getting the disease. The reason polio cases increased from the salk vaccine was because, at the time, there were no real quality checks and the virus was not killed properly. This was not a fault of the vaccine. Vaccines are nothing more than training sessions for your body. Think of it as an immune system self defense class. I’m a biologist with a focus in this sort of thing, not some Joe Blow. Don’t let this kind of hype scare you.

      • Yeah, and you biologists and scientists brought us Thalidomide. Scientists are saying GMOs are safe, and chlorine and flouride in water is safe. Excuse me for not buying into your bullsh*t.
        Let scientists play with rockets, I’m letting nature, and only nature, into my body.

        • Sean Padden

          Every single ‘organic’ fruit or vegetable that you eat has been genetically modified by selective breeding for generations. There is nothing ‘organic’ about it. If you want true organic go out into the woods and find the natural counterparts of what you can buy in the grocery store. I will guarantee that you will find them hard to tolerate.

      • Doctorate in IMMUNOLOGY, not HEALTH

        Right on Claire. Exactly right. Shame that no one here seems to understand basic immunology but I have run into that quite a bit recently. Oh well. I guess that’s where education is headed…

      • Actually, Claire, your training in biology comes from a mix of true, honest information, and bought-and-paid-for hampered or fixed results. Vaccines are helpful ONLY for those who are born with a weak immune system…but even then not totally necessary because there are ALWAYS natural remedies, natural immune-system boosters, that do not involve inflicting physical pain on a newborn or child and injecting them with harsh chemicals and poisons (along with bacteria/virus that might not be completely dead).

        Naturally, our immune system is designed to do what you claim the vaccines help with on it’s own. The more it does this, the stronger and more efficient it gets. The problem with doing it manually (relying on vaccines to do the job) is the immune system then sits back and says “oh cool I have help” and loses its efficiency and strength. The body then becomes reliant on the manual fix to do the work, rather than knowing how to do it on its own. Think of it like a child making a mess: if you clean up the mess for the child all the time, the child will not learn how to clean up after itself. If you teach the child to clean up its own mess before doing anything else, the child will from then on know how to clean up after itself.

        • Sean Padden

          I guess those 40% to 60% death rates in the 1700 and 1800’s from respiratory and gastrointestinal illness were just to cull the weak gene pool then. The immune system is not a muscle, it is a chemical / biochemical response. It never gets ‘stronger’ it gets ‘better trained’.

        • Nice answer :) I’m a Holistic Therapist, self taught Nutritionist, & Poison control for my Family & anyone who wants to read what I’ve read. I appreciate this article & the comments as my 3rd Granddaughter is growing right now, will be here before Christmas, & I am scared of what they are putting into everything now, Claire with her “the virus was not killed properly” the little accidents that are irreversible, it feels like she is completely detached from Peoples suffering. But you don’t think they are accidents once you’ve read everything properly, you tend to believe most Conspiracy Theories, I don’t want it to happen to my Babies Baby, JACQUE FRESCO is our only hope, we have to change everything & it can be done with his Psychology Designs & technology..

      • Wake Up

        Misinformed response. Vaccines are not training sessions for your body, they contain other things that are harmful. Do a little more research. And yes, there are ways of counteracting the negative effects of vaccines like:


        Biochemist over here. 100% agree with Clair. Well said

        • Doctorate in HEALTH, not pseudoscience

          You really don’t understand immunity then. The way these vaccines even INVOKE an immune response in our bodies is due to all the toxins they dump into them. Otherwise, if it was just the bacterium or virus, the body would have next to 0 immune response towards it. Plus, you need to research the physiology behind immunity. There are different ways we become immune to these diseases (launching different, specific cellular responses) we vaccinate for, and almost all of them are only recognized by the body when they enter our airways and come in contact with our mucous membranes (it’s how the body detects it and launches its attack), not direct contact with our blood.

          Seeing as you think being a biochemist gives you credibility, I have my doctorate in the health field and must say you don’t know what you are talking about and have been fed incorrect information without research and only regurgitating now.

          And since someone mentioned “why do you hide your identity” (because I’m going to do the same), I like to keep my privacy as I’m sure you do. I don’t use my real name on almost anything on the internet aside for my business.

          • Sean Padden

            Yes, there are agents in the vaccine used to stimulate the immunological response. This is only logical in order to maximize the effectiveness of the vaccine. Some vaccines are delivered with a shot, others are delivered via mist or orally. The body’s immune system can respond in all manners. Just think of having an infected cut. That leads directly to your circulatory system. Nose, that is blood infused mucous membranes. Your stomach is constantly bombarded with immunological stimulating events. We’re experts at eating fungi, molds, bacteria, virus that are in us, on us, and all around us all of the time. So our immune systems has response in all the different circumstances. And yes I am using my real name, for my information is real and correct.

          • Steven

            “…and almost all of them are only recognized by the body when they enter our airways and come in contact with our mucous membranes (it’s how the body detects it and launches its attack), not direct contact with our blood.”

            But, your mucous membranes are in direct contact with your blood. Now please stop lying about being a doctor.

        • if you are true about what are you saying . .why did you hide your identity . . .Biochemist ?? Please Enlighten us . . . .

          • Geez, the biochemist not only didn’t hide his identity, he gave his email address as his identity. What more do you want Dindo?

  2. Very interesting article, well written. What were the sources for this. It is as I said a great way to increase the odds of a pandemic occurring. Reducing the trust of the public’s trust in medicine is a step the Globalists have used successfully around the world in less educated nations. There are very powerful people at work out there devising way’s of eroding public trust. There are many governmental forces involved in these conspiracies, and are willing to use Americans as guinea pigs. Our government’s had involvement in reducing global populations, using infiltration in citizen networks, disinformation, and fear of anything that is believed to be safe. I am a doubter in this theory involving vaccinations for the reasons mentioned. I never trust one source.

  3. Anton Markov

    Interesting points you make Alex, are you referring to Club of Rome type groups by chance? One thing I will say is that this article does not talk about the post polio syndrome. The writer Robert Anton Wilson recovered from Polio when he was young via a method designed by a Australian Nurse, can’t remember her name. Anyway the treatment was apparently very effective for those who were suffering from the paralysis. However these same people could also develop post polio in their later years as Wilson did, which was very debilitating.

  4. Anton Markov

    Another issue I find lately, and I have family members who are on this anti-Vaxer band wagon, is that because big pharma interests cut corners, or use dangerous preservatives (theoretically), that means vaccines are bad. Or there has been natural decline in outbreaks, so we didn’t’ need the vaccines. All those reasons do not amount to lets not have vaccines, because then it’s a game of Russian roulette with who gets it and lives and who does not. Some people are still going to get the infections and die, and apparently that is acceptable to the ant-vaxer movement, or they have not thought that far ahead to their arguments logical conclusion. I also agree this anti-science anti-vaccine movement is bundled into corporate greed and malfeasance, when they are all really separate but somewhat connected issues, it doesn’t always make sense to always lump them together.

    • Reese

      The anti-vax movement is not anti-science. Well, maybe some. But most parents I come across who don’t vaccinate are very well researched. The problem is that while some biased studies an anecdotal evidence shows that most kids do not have an immediate bad reaction to vaccines, as a whole, there is no gold standard of science that shows vaccines are safe. Most studies that show the apparent safety of vaccines are either funded by a biased party or are not designed very well. For example, in many studies, the control group to see whether or not a new vaccine is safe is just a group that is using the already approved version of a vaccine… Not much comparison. Additionally, there are many studies that just don’t exist at all. The lack of a study doesn’t mean there “is no proof” it just means that it hasn’t been studied yet and the answer is unknown.

      Anti-vaxers know that there is an apparent correlation between vaccinating and many types of problems including SIDS and other auto-immune disorders. Pro-vaxers know that there is an apparent correlation between the decline of certain diseases and the introduction of the vaccine. However, correlation, in either case, doesn’t prove causation.

      Pro-vaccine people have a point, when they want kids to be protected from deadly diseases (although, not every disease we vaccinate for is deadly, and more people should really look that up). But what the anti-vax people are asking is if we are getting protection from some diseases an unknowingly causing epidemics of new debilitating health problems, SIDS, and autoimmune disorders by messing with millions of years of evolution. What if for every one kid we save from polio, 20 die of SIDS because science simply hasn’t made the effort to understand if there is a relationship? What if for every kid one child that is saved from whooping cough, 10 more died from vaccine induced cancer? Would we still find vaccination worth it? Anti-vaxers want to see the science that vaccines are safe because the correlation of disease increases and death related to the vaccine schedule is very real, just as the correlation between the decline in the main diseases and vaccination is very real.

      • Sean Padden

        And you know why a good controlled study can’t be done? Simple – you would have to give some the kids the vaccination and the disease, and then your control group would be kids without the vaccination and the disease. So you really want to infect children with a potentially deadly disease to prove a vaccine is safe and effective? How large of a study would you need to be convinced? Until one of the non-vaccinated children died? Until 5% of the control developed paralysis?

        SIDS and auto-immune disorders stem from far more sources than vaccines, assuming vaccines can cause SIDS and other problems. While vaccines are specific for the disease they prevent. Thus your correlation vs causation argument is pointless. We can conclude vaccines prevent disease by watching increasing vaccinations leading to a specific decrease in a single disease. Meanwhile babies die of SIDS whether unvaccinated or not; and neurological problems can stem from genetics and not become apparent until the more formative years of language and upper level cognitive thought.

        Finally, is a life where you get to live a full life for 60, 70, 80 years worth the risk of vaccination, even if it is going to give you cancer in your 7th decade? Risk assess that against being sickly, paralyzed, blind for those 60, 70, 80 years and still likely to receive a cancer diagnosis from other ‘toxins’ present in the world. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take the former.

  5. Mick


    The reasons us “anti-vaxers” have for not vaccinating is because of the risk associted with getting the vaccines vs if they are effective. My daughter was injured by a vaccine and it is becoming more common place. The question is…is getting the vaccine worth the risk of injury and probably also contributing to future illnesses like autoimmune diseases as well?

  6. Very interesting, but I must comment on the high number of spelling and grammar mistakes in the text. Not to be a grammar nazi but it does take away some of the seriousness of the article. Sorry.

  7. Keda

    Not vaccinating is the hardest decision ever in a world where everyone thinks you need lynching for NOT doing it. But we didn’t. And thus far (4 years), we have not had any problems. Our daughter is healthy, she has never had any form of injection and we really do believe that this has been the best choice for us. There are still days that I wonder if we made the right decision, but then something like this comes up and I’m like: Oh yeah, this is why. There are other things as well. I am immune to Rubella, and so my daughter had that immunity immediately. Why would I vaccinate against something that I know she is immune against? All things considered though, I made my decision based on the facts I gathered. Other people follow their parents and the old ways. I choose to make choices based on current information and I want to know as much as possible before I make a choice, BUT I leave others to make their own. It is not my responsibility to choose for others. It is also not really worth the battle when I tell them that we didn’t vaccinate.

    • sara

      There may not be any ill effects of your daughter now; but she is unprotected. Articles like the one above, don’t provide references and are NOT peer reviewed. Vaccines come with a risk, yes. But the risk outweighs the other possible outcome. It’s the lesser of two evils. If you educated yourself(And by educate I mean go get a bachelors degree in science) you’d know the risk you’re posing for your child. That being said, it’s your decision and it would be wrong of me to put you down for it. I really hope that your daughter doesn’t come in to contact with any of these virus’.

      • Beth

        I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Science and we talked VERY little about vaccines! Only that they were necessary. I really became educated when I started doing my own research. I do NOT vaccinate my child.

      • Speaker of Truth

        Here’s your proof. No degree needed

  8. JB

    Seeing the effects of polio directly i must say that the ciphers presented are nonsense. Do you really understand that 2% of 500 billion people is 10,000,000,000 people? That for people suffering it and their families this article in itself is a slap on the face? That this is mostly like denying the holocaust? That merely 6,000,000 jewishs were killed in the holocaust, that beein something like only 0.0001% ?

    Simply adding a low number does not mean anything wihtout the propert context.. 2% seems nothing compared to 100% but 2% seems huge compared to 0.0001% and yet we all cry in disgust for holocaust-deniers & people saying this was of no importance right?

    Well, think twice before saying that 2% is not worth the effort made at the time for if your children happened to be one of the kids with polio or one of the 0.0001% population killed by the holocaust you’d be !#$% on this kind of articles.

    I dont contest the numbers or results about the vaccine (this one or any others) but ending this article saying that all vacines are merely there to intentionally “open your code” to other diseases is wrong and plainly “conspiracy theory”. Why not support your aguments-beliefs with facts? Where’s your link to the article that proofs that “The science behind vaccinations has long been proven to be completely ineffective and the continued use of vaccines only shows the real purpose behind them?” Did you study biology? did you even went to college? do you know the basic works of our immune system?

    “Not a single vaccine is necessary in any human body” … wonder what you’ll tell your husband or wife when your kid gets meningitis and dies (really hope this never happens).

    I do agree that vaccines for “normal” diseases like flu, chicckenpox, measels, mumps etc.. are questionable, but not for real diseases like meningitis, polio, diphteria, hep b, whooping cough, moreover when they’re children.

    Please people, porvide facts before encouraging others not to do (or do) something!

    • my father born 1936 . .i ask him if he has vaccinated during his childhood . . .he said no . .i ask him again if he knows somebody within his time who has polio . . .he said none . . .he said polio begun after they invented vaccine . . . hmm m mm . . .i wonder if my father tell the truth . . .

      • Dindo Seno wrote, “i ask him again if he knows somebody within his time who has polio . . .he said none . . .”

        So, he never heard of President Franklin D. Roosevelt?


      • i remember when i was a child i got vaccinated . . .(at that time many nurses came . .door to door in every house in our town to vaccine all children) i ask my father if they explained to him what is that vaccine ? he said NO . . .my father said its the government official tell them that its necessary . . .(hmmm . .but without the knowledge of the people what is that vaccine ?? )

    • Whooping cough was on the decline before the vaccine was ever introduced to the public, same can be said for polio as well. Enjoy injecting mercury and aluminum (and God knows what else) into your body.

    • - Collective Evolution

      To put things into perspective even more, based on estimates only, it was believed that polio affected about 250,000 people per year during some rough years of polio. Actual recorded cases were only about 40,000 however. Why such a big difference in numbers? Great question, but I certainly wouldn’t give much credit to their estimates of 250,000. So let’s just say for a moment that Polio affected around 2 million people. 2% may have had more serious cases, so thats 40,000 people. 50% of them fully recovered with no issues. So 20,000 still have some form of damage from Polio today. While it would be great to have 0 people having been affected by it, 20,000 out of 2.3 billion? Even if it was 1 million of 2.3 billion, that still isn’t half as serious as most health problems of today which are all diet related!

    • - Collective Evolution

      I’m not sure I see the purpose of using a number like 500 billion. We currently have around 7 billion and at the time of polio it was around 2.3 billion. Of those 2 billion, it was a very small number that even contracted Polio considering it didn’t happen all over the world, that is until the vaccine was invented and put Polio in places where it never existed. Vaccine science is considered to be one of the most fraudulent pieces of medical science in existence given the fact that theres till exist no factual pieces of information that suggest vaccines are in fact effective and actually work. One cannot decipher the difference between an immune system avoid the disease vs the vaccine being the cause. This is a medical fact that is often not realized due to the fact that most claims made by CDC, WHO and other organizations are theoretical and opinionated claims that are given weight due the the authority figure it is coming from. It is more likely that profit is the motive behind vaccines than helping others. It has been proven that most vaccines contain a lot of DNA codes of diseases that would never happen or blow up if it wasn’t for vaccines themselves.

      As for debunking vaccines myths, those are all coming from the same source, the CDC! Try looking at evidence from un bias doctors who have nothing to gain from their research other than finding truth. They will tell you that vaccines are something else.

      I always encourage others to do their own research when reading anything. That of course is a given. But where they do their research and who they choose to give credit to is up to them. I wouldn’t want anyone taking my word as truth anymore than they would trust the CDC or WHO.. we have to think for ourselves.

    have any of you actually SEEN the results of polio? and what it can do? in PERSON? i have. as i watch this vibrant woman’s twisted leg make her constantly stumble, where she has to a toilet chair in her living room, where she hurts so bad, you can see tears running down her cheeks as she smiles as hard as she can.
    where her some of her family died from the diease.. horrific deaths, she said. NO ONE should ever have to go through what my family did.
    There are some vaccines that are far more worth the risk to get than others.. Polio being one of them, small pox, but this crap they keep shoving in your face to get, flu vaccines.. hello people the flu mutates so fast that no one can keep up with it. they would have to a new vaccine out every month. unless you have a very weak immune system, dont get the flu vaccine. I still dont believe in giving children chicken pox vaccines.
    but i do agree to some.
    and i still believe some of these vaccines do cause autism.
    so be choosey, but be wise.

  13. Natascha

    I’m finding the dilemma of whether or not to vaccinate my future children so difficult. My husband and I discuss it and we are still not sure. My parents were really anti-vaccinations when my sister and me were babies and we weren’t vaccinated, we both contracted bad cases of whooping cough and my mother felt so guilty. My brother who was born 10 years after me was then given all the vaccines and he’s fine. So I’m finding it hard to know what the right thing is. All my friends have had their babies vaccinated and I don’t know of anyone who has had any bad effects… It’s really difficult, I hate the idea of injecting unknown substances into my children and being aware of possible negative motivations behind these vaccines but it’s so difficult to find unbiased information. It seems that everyone on either side has an agenda and there is so much evidence supporting both arguments!

    • Veronika

      Breastfeed. By breastfeeding you will pass your immunity to whooping cough to your children. And also any immunity to all other deceases you have contracted in the past. Do not be scared. Vaccines are poison. They destroy the child’s immune system and make it more vulnerable in the best scenario. In the worst-they can leave your child with severe health problems or even worse…

      • James

        Veronika does not understand how the immune system works. Vaccines absolutely induce a potent immune response. She is correct that breastfeeding will provide antibodies directed against the toxin produced by the bacteria that causes whooping cough, but it will last only for a short time (as little as 3 months up to four years at the most), at which point the protection is lost. Vaccines can provide that protection for far longer (decades depending on the vaccine). Additionally, you will not transfer antibodies against other diseases you never had (measles for instance) because you never made those antibodies and therefore have no antibodies to pass on.

    • So, you had whooping cough but you still lived, right?? and now you are immune to it.

      • Exactly! When your immune system is strong you get sick less and when you do get sick you build true immunity. And how can you say you would have not gotten whooping cough had you gotten the shots!?? You absolutely can NOT. I challenge you to find even ONE ingredient in the shots that’s good for you:

        My youngest son who was NOT vaccinated has the following compared to his older brother at the same age who had a “minimal amount” of vaccinations:

        – Faster Learning (conversing at 2 in 2 languages)
        – Better Behavior With Less Tantrums
        – Gets sick less severely and less often
        – No fever induced seizures

        Sadly I have friends who have a vaccinated autistic child which was which is NOT in their family line. And pretty much EVERYONE at least knows someone like this. But somehow it just appeared on it’s own right? I don’t think so!

        Protect your children! Say NO to vaccinations, YES to healthy diet and lifestyle, and YES to signing the waiver or moving if you have to! There’s no undo command when it comes to the health of our children.


    Increased hygiene and similar approaches were definitely part of the overall vaccination programme in India, but even with those measures already in place, the introduction of bivalent oral polio vaccine in 2010 saw cases drop from 741 in 2009, to 43 in 2010, to ONE in 2011, and no new cases since. That kind of decrease is not “natural” and it’s definitely not the increase that was said at the beginning of the article to be CAUSED by vaccinations.

    • Steve Michaels

      According to the public figures in India, in 2000 there were around 3,000 cases of paralytic polio which decreased without vaccination to under 1,000. After the vaccination program was instituted, they now have over 45,000 cases of paralysed children, only in the vaccinated and all called “non polio acute flaccid paralysis”. This disease is clinically indistinguishable from paralytic polio and has a 100% higher mortality rate than polio. Well done!! Back claps all around, eh?

  15. Steve Michaels

    Joe, there is another reason why polio rates decline after the roll out of the vaccine when you look at the public statistics. The very definition of paralytic polio was changed making the full diagnosis of paralytic polio a much higher bar to get over. Most paralytic polio cases were reclassified under the new definition at aseptic meningitis. If you follow the numbers, the reduction in paralytic polio virtually mirrors the increase in aseptic meningitis diagnoses.

  16. Jason

    This “article” on Polio is a joke. It alleges there was a natural decline in polio cases but NEVER provides any evidence of this claim. It merely states it as if it were fact without supporting evidence of this claim.

    Furthermore, the article never mentions ANY numerical figures, only percentages (a convenient way of masking much lower numbers as if they are much larger sample sizes). Such citations include nice round percentages like 77.5%, 80%, and 50% to quote the article. These numerically could be represented as 31 out of 40 people, 4 out of 5 people, and 1 out of 2 people respectively just as accurately as they could be 31,000 out of 40,000 people, 40,000 out of 50,000 people, and 10,000, out of 20,000 people. The absence of ANY hard numbers makes me question their significance since if there really was an epidimic of harm being caused by polio vaccines, saying several dozen thousand people were harmed sure would be less subject to criticism than saying 50% WITHOUT numerical context. So when they say there was a 50% increase in polio cases, it could just as accurately be an increase from one case to two cases the following year as it could be an increase to 20,000 cases from 10,000 the previous year.

    Finally, the ONLY non rounded off percentage, 642%, alleges that this increase was a direct result of the vaccination without proof. There is no evidence discussing the extent of vaccination in these regions, the levels of polio before vaccination (in numerical figures) or the actual rates of contraction of polio in the populations who ACTUALLY received the vaccine.

    Oh, and lets not forget that the only graph STOPS in 1955…the introduction of the Salk Vaccine wildly hailed as the cause of the end of the epidemic…One would naturally it to cover the period during which the Salk Vaccine, the one credited for the decline, was available.

    • Jason, you tried. I commend you.

      micky’s response is “can u find me a scientific study that has shown vaccines to actually work?” You can show him thousands of such studies (or the links to them). He will then respond “I don’t believe any of them” as though disbelief is some sort of logical, valid response. He will not cite any scientifically valid data contravening your studies. He doesn’t have to because he does not believe that which you present. A very rational and succinct method of debate … not.

      Then, micky recalled his second major debate tool … insult the other side. Boy, that works every time and demonstrates the moral, scientific, and intellectual superiority of his position. You can’t go against such an killer retort as that, can you?


    • micky

      jason….you ask for proof, facts, etc, I’ll ask you something…can u find me a scientific study that has shown vaccines to actually work? that is all from me!
      see thru the illusion! Wake up to the NWO!

    • micky

      you sound like every other sheepy does… see thru the illusion buddy…

  17. There always seems to be some troll who is either really really foolish or paid by big pharma to make those who have done their research and concluded that vaccines are poison are fools and the modern medicine people are really so brilliant. Read the labels and understand the effects of each on the body! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out it’s poison!

    • “done their research”? Oh, you mean look for anything that matches what you want to believe and base your life on what you wanted to do anyway. Yeah, “research” … not.

      We will soon be able to collect data on those who did their own “research” versus those you foolishly accepted the accumulated and changing body knowledge of humankind. Seeing who lives longer and in a better state will be interesting.

      “done their research”? You mean you are using the advanced technology of computers and the Internet operating off an integrated power grid along with an interwoven fiber optic communication system … and then reject medical knowledge created, in some cases, and presented through the same overall system?


  18. Thank you Joe for this article :) Jesus Loves You :)

  19. Ross

    Polio stopped in India by a vacination program. This is India where sanatation remains a mess.

  20. Vaccines are evil … just eat your fruits and vegetables and you won’t die … like those 2,600,000 did in 1980.

    “Measles is one of the most highly transmissible contagious human diseases. … In 1980, before the use of measles vaccine was widespread, an estimated 2.6 million deaths due to measles occurred worldwide.”

  21. MRS

    This article is a very funny joke. It’s better not to even comment on that. It would suffice to say that go do your research people and not on datas and calculators and maths or charts. Do your research on a topic called Immunology. Aside being informative it’s really interesting. Learn what a vaccine is. what types of vaccines are out there . What is a virus a bacteria and an Ab. maybe then you get that a vaccine isn’t a code but it is an attenuated virus or a killed virus which in Polios case it comes in both forms . The amount of ignorance is just unbelievable!!!

    another thing if you want yourself or your child to be one in 100 person who becomes paralytic for your whole life , that’s your choice.

  22. The author claims that the “lack of clean conditions” (the author does not clarify what he meant there) was the cause of polio’s adverse effects. However, better sanitation in the US started long before the reduction in polio cases occurred. Thus, his premise here is neutered.

How I Healed My Failing Liver Naturally

This past February, I was thrown off of my health high-horse. What first started as a headache, fever, and body aches, quickly escalated into an excruciating migraine, debilitating muscle stiffness, and an overwhelming sense of nausea. I was hit with what I thought was…
