Do you ever wonder why China NEVER mass inoculated their people for polio AND never had a polio epidemic like WE had?


Even before coming face to face with the following HARD COLD statistics, I had a REAL hard time believing that injecting me and mine with bodily fluids from the livers of millions of dead monkeys is good for our health, much less prevents any disease, much less could ever PREVENT polio, much less could not possibly the THE reason that one out of 70 American boys are BORN with autism


For DECADES before the Salk "vaccine" came along, the polio rate in the US was LESS than 1 per 100,000 population. Thus to do a valid study of the efficacy of the vaccine, you MUST have a sample size of at least ONE MILLION, plus another one million for the control group, for a total of 2 MILLION CHILDREN. And even then, it would take AT LEAST ten years to compare the two groups, the one with the real vaccine, and the one with the placebo, to determine whether or not the vaccine actually REDUCED, rather than INCREASED, polio cases.

There's UTTERLY NOTHING you can learn or prove from a ONE YEAR "study", using a sample size of only 100,000 children, if LESS than ONE of them would be expected to contract polio in the entire year anyway.

"Nassau began inoculating 50,000 children. Half the children in each county received Salk vaccine. The other half got a harmless liquid, enabling medical researchers to gauge the vaccine's effectiveness."

"Throughout New York State, there were 1,910 polio cases and 187 deaths in 1950. In 1960, there were only 138 cases and 26 deaths statewide."


"The tabulation of the collected data indicated that the incidence rate of cases
in the treatment group was 28 per 100,000 versus 71 per 100,000 in the control
group. Statistical analysis of these rates showed that the Salk polio vaccine was
indeed effective and that the clinical trial (one of the largest ever) and its cost
($5 million) were justified."

What is the AVERAGE rate of polio around the world, particularly in countries like China, Equatorial Guinea, Iraq, Cameroon, Syria, and Cameroon, who never took the Salk vaccine? 


Dirt Poor Pakistanis, Islam PROHIBITS Vaccines, Have Polio Rate of 0.05 per 100,000

The country with the highest number of polio cases today is Pakistan, at only 93 cases.  With a population of 179 million, this is a polio rate of only 0.05 per 100,000 population, making OUR "control" group 540 TIMES more likely to get polio than dirt poor Pakistanis.


Is polio still a disease seen in the United States?

The last cases of naturally occurring paralytic polio in the United States were in 1979, when an outbreak occurred among the Amish in several Midwestern states. From 1980 through 1999, there were 162 confirmed cases of paralytic polio cases reported. Of the 162 cases, eight cases were acquired outside the United States and imported. The last imported case caused by wild poliovirus into the United States was reported in 1993. The remaining 154 cases were vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) caused by live oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV).

This is 8 cases per year, or a rate of 0.003 per 100,000, which makes our "control" group 9,275 TIMES more likely to "get" polio.

READ: it was the vaccine which CAUSED our polio "epidemic".

New York: 1 Polio Death Per 100,000 Population


The population of New York in 1950 was 15 million, so there were 13 polio cases and 1 polio death per 100,000 population, which is trivial compared to most other diseases which never received all the media coverage.  Attempting to resolve such a relatively trivial problem was certainly NOT worth the risk of spreading AIDS, cancer, and all kinds of other immunological diseases associated with the SV-40 virus that was in the monkey livers and is now in up to 98 million Americans.   Just in 1996, 276 times as many Americans died of heart disease, but we didn't see any media stories about this "epidemic", nor was there any federal effort to curb it.  Why not?  More children died of heart disease than polio in 1950, three times as many died of cancer, and ten times as many died in accidents, none of which was considered an "epidemic" then, nor is it considered an epidemic now, half a century after inoculating 98% of our children with this "vaccine".  Yet in 1996, 203 times as many people died of cancer, 60 times as many of cerebrovascular diseases, 40 times as many of pulmonary diseases, 36 times as many in accidents, 32 times as many of flu and pneumonia, 23 times as many of diabetes, 12 times as many of AIDS or committed suicide, 9 times as many died of cirrhosis, and all other causes [residual] took 160 times as many lives. 

What, exactly, did the polio vaccine do for society?

Polio 1.2

Sample Size: 100,000 or Only 25,000 Children

In spite of the overwhelming effort to inoculate the American public with a questionable and risky vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still can't even tell us how many people in the US actually contracted paralytic polio in 1950, even half a century later.  If it was important enough then to curb this "epidemic" with this expensive and risky mass inoculation of the American population, where is the evidence that it was a success?  All the CDC data tells us is that there were a TOTAL of 33,300 cases, a rate of 22 per 100,000 population, but they leave the space blank where the number of paralytic polio cases should have been, AND say nothing about polio deaths.  If this was such a dramatic epidemic, why the dead silence about its scope?  We know from other sources that only one out of a thousand cases of polio are paralytic polio, suggesting that the reason they left this space blank is that the "epidemic" was a total of only 33 cases in the entire country each year.  This sure doesn't engender confidence in the medical profession nor Jonas Salk nor the CDC, to say the least.

The REAL tragedy of this event is that the decision was based on inoculating only 25,000 children with the vaccine.  Even if we accept New York's figure for total polio cases, they could have expected there to be only 3 children out of 25,000 with polio, and we still don't even have the slightest idea how many of these cases would have been paralytic polio.  If paralytic polio really is only 1 case out of a thousand, and if the CDC figure is more accurate than the New York figure, then there would have been only one case of paralytic polio out of 4,636,364 people, making a sample size of 25,000 less than worthless.  What could possibly be learned from 25,000 children if NONE of them would have gotten polio without the vaccine anyway?  Even a sample size 185 times larger would have contained only one case of paralytic polio, which still isn't a large enough sample size to justify such a massive government expenditure.

The concept was ludicrous on its face.  Even if we made the most ridiculous assumption that nobody knew really how many cases of paralytic polio there were, and that all of the cases in New York were paralytic polio and not the strain of polio that 99.9% of polio victims got and fully recovered from, a sample size of only 25,000 children is still worthless.  Add to that a control sample of only 25,000 children who didn't receive the actual vaccine, and instead were injected with a "harmless liquid", and Salk becomes the most successful mass murderer in American history.

If none of the 25,000 children who received the vaccine contracted polio, the control group is so small that it's also possible that none of them contracted polio either.   Even if Salk had run this study on twenty different sets of 25,000 children (which he didn't), the probability is just too high that one set would have completely missed any children with polio anyway.  So if none of the children who were given the polio vaccine contracted polio, you know nothing about the vaccine because it's also entirely possible that there would have been no polio cases amongst 25,000 children who never took the vaccine.  This of course still ignores the fact that only one case out of a thousand is paralytic polio.

The most likely incidence of polio amongst 20 groups of 25,000 children who had never been given the vaccine is that 2 groups would have included only 1 polio case, that 8 would have included 2 cases, that 4 would have included 3 cases, that 4 would have included 4 cases, and that one group could have included as many as 7 cases.  Since the control group was only ONE group of 25,000 children, how could Salk have known which group it was?

The answer is:  he didn't.  If just ONE person who got the vaccine also contracted polio, then the control sample would have been completely invalidated, because the vaccinated group would have been completely within the statistical subset of the non-vaccinated group.  In other words, if the control group which received the "harmless liquid" had 3 cases of polio, and the sample group which was given the vaccine had one case of polio, there could be no evidence that the vaccine was a success because both groups fell within the expected range.  If 3 who took the vaccine got polio, and 7 who didn't also got polio, we still don't have statistical evidence that the vaccine was effective.  The following statement suggests something far more sinister--that it may have been the other way around (i.e., more people who who were inoculated contracted polio than those who weren't):

"In August, 1959, a Sayville mother became the first person on Long Island to die of polio after taking three shots of Salk vaccine. Mary Fleming, 38, died in Southside Hospital in Bay Shore two days after coming down with bulbar polio -- the most serious form of the disease. She, her husband and their five children had all taken the vaccine. That same week, Nassau Health Commissioner Earle Brown disclosed that eight children in his county who had taken Salk shots had contracted polio during that year. 'No vaccine is 100 percent perfect,'' Brown said. 'But this vaccine, I have faith in it.'''

Really?  What could possibly have engendered such "faith" in a vaccine like this when there were more people getting polio from it than from the "epidemic"?  Dollars?  Is this where his "faith" came from?   It certainly couldn't have come from science.  Even with the most liberal assumptions above, it would appear that people were getting the deadly strain of polio from the vaccine at a much higher rate than even the state of New York estimated got it from the putative "epidemic".  If paralytic polio was only one case out of every 1,000 polio cases--we have positive proof of a criminal conspiracy on our hands.   It's hard to imagine that so many American politicians never realized the extent of the fraud.  Add to that the fact that they never even investigated the adverse long term effects of injecting 98% of the American population (less the 1.5% of Salk's fellow jews who didn't take it for "religious reasons"), and we have proof that our own government is controlled by an enemy foreign power.

LI's Vaccine Volunteers
In '54, thousands line up to fight polio -- taking the shots felt around the world

By Michael Dorman
More than 4,000 monkeys a month were flown during the mid-1950s from India and the Philippines to a desolate laboratory along the bank of a small river near Bluffton, S.C. Those monkeys would play pivotal roles in helping provide the vaccine used in the largest polio-vaccination test program in the United States -- conducted on Long Island in 1954.

The monkeys' kidneys were removed and the organs' cells were injected with polio virus. The cells then multiplied, and the virus was scientifically treated so that it would not transmit the disease. The process produced a vaccine that, when injected into humans, would develop antibodies designed to fight polio and its crippling effects.

On April 27, 1954, about 15,000 Suffolk children began rolling up their sleeves for the first of three shots in a nationwide test of the polio vaccine, developed by Dr. Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. Six days later, Nassau began inoculating 50,000 children. Half the children in each county received Salk vaccine. The other half got a harmless liquid, enabling medical researchers to gauge the vaccine's effectiveness.

It is almost impossible to exaggerate the terror posed by polio at the time. Parents lived in constant dread that their children would be stricken -- perhaps killed, perhaps condemned by paralysis to pass their days in iron-lung machines. Many had grown up with constant reminders of polio's ravages in the person of the nation's most celebrated victim of the disease, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Some parents who could afford it took their children to summer resorts each year to remove them from crowded urban and suburban neighborhoods reputed to provide breeding grounds for polio.

Although there was concern among parents about the safety of the injections, more than 90 percent of the eligible children turned out to receive their shots on Long Island. Initially, the injections were given to children in the first, second and third grades but eventually were provided to older children and adults. Some children involved in the initial tests smiled self-consciously as the needles slid into their arms. Others cried. Many held their arms afterward. All received lollipops as rewards for their fortitude.

Physicians and nurses from throughout both counties volunteered their services in visiting schools to administer the shots. At the Meadowlawn School in East Meadow, school nurse Ruth Foote supervised the vaccination of 540 children. As one small boy emerged from a booth after receiving his shot, he told a friend: ``You know, that doctor was telling me jokes -- trying to take my mind off the needle.''

Another student, 9-year-old Danny Billings, wore an unworried expression -- even a trace of a smile -- as he received his shot at the Meadowlawn School. But Ellen Engel, 7, yowled as she received hers at Central School in Long Beach. Robert Lange, 7, his broken right arm in a cast, gamely offered his left so Dr. Michael Lorenzo could inject him with vaccine at the North Side School in East Williston.

Nassau and Suffolk medical officials said they were confident the vaccine was safe. The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, sponsoring the tests, pointed out that Jonas Salk's own children had taken the vaccine along with 8,000 Pittsburgh children and there had been no ill effects.

A second shot would be injected a week after the first and a third shot four weeks later. Before being used, each batch of vaccine was tested in three independent laboratories to ensure that it could not transmit the disease. It was also tested to be sure it contained no live virus causing any other disease.

As had been predicted, the injection program occasionally ran into problems. There were, for example, periodic shortages of vaccine. Nassau officials at one point proposed stretching the supply by giving only one injection to each child -- using the rest to spread the coverage to additional children. But the plan was reversed when a national committee of 33 polio experts expressed unanimous disapproval.

Even when shots were taken, some recipients still contracted polio and small numbers even died. In 1955, a Bethpage child, Donita Lent, became the first in the state to contract polio after receiving one shot of vaccine. Bruce Spiegel, an 8-year-old second-grader at Oceanside Central School, came down with a mild case of polio a short time later. Bruce had received two injections. He initially ran a high fever, then complained that his left arm felt ``awfully heavy.'' He was taken to a doctor, who immediately hospitalized him. Relatives said they were sure he would have suffered a more severe case of polio if he had not taken the two shots.

In August, 1959, a Sayville mother became the first person on Long Island to die of polio after taking three shots of Salk vaccine. Mary Fleming, 38, died in Southside Hospital in Bay Shore two days after coming down with bulbar polio -- the most serious form of the disease. She, her husband and their five children had all taken the vaccine. That same week, Nassau Health Commissioner Earle Brown disclosed that eight children in his county who had taken Salk shots had contracted polio during that year. ``No vaccine is 100 percent perfect,'' Brown said. ``But this vaccine, I have faith in it.''

There seemed good reason for such faith. The vaccine clearly worked.

During a typical pre-Salk year, 1950, there were 309 reported polio cases and 19 deaths in Nassau. By the time of Mary Fleming's death eight months into 1959, there were only 10 cases and no additional deaths on all of Long Island. Throughout New York State, there were 1,910 polio cases and 187 deaths in 1950. In 1960, there were only 138 cases and 26 deaths statewide.

Eventually, polio would be all but eradicated in the United States. Long Island health officials said recently that no polio cases have been reported to them in at least three years. Jonas Salk, who died of a heart ailment in 1995 at the age of 80, surely deserves most of the credit. But some say a word of gratitude is due those thousands of monkeys that helped bring Salk's vaccine to the world.
