Israel's Cancer Rate

 

bulletIsrael mass innoculated for polio, and now has a high cancer rate: 149 per 100,000 population.
bulletWith a population of 5.1 million, if Israel had a cancer mortality rate equivalent to Belize of 42.7, they would have 5,421 fewer cancer deaths per year.

Israel began vaccination against polio with inactivated
polio vaccine (IPV) in 1957. In the early 1960s, oral polio
vaccine (OPV) replaced IPV nationwide. The vaccine schedule
consisted of OPV given at 2, 4, 6, and 12-14 months of age.
Between 1971 and 1981, an average of 14 paralytic poliomyelitis
cases was reported annually in Israel. Hadera had reported
the highest incidence of paralytic polio before 1982. In
1982, the use of an enhanced potency IPV (eIPV) was instituted
in Hadera and one other of the 15 districts in Israel.
Between 1982 and 1987, fewer than two cases of paralytic
poliomyelitis were reported annually in Israel. None of
the cases in the current outbreak occurred in eIPV recipients.
