Polio defence plan back on track
Rumour-mongers bow to vaccination campaign.
18 May 2004 HELEN R. PILCHER Polio vaccination campaigns have had mixed success so far. The quest to rid the world of poliomyelitis is going ahead, after fears that anti-vaccine stories would scupper eradication plans have been laid to rest. Earlier this year, mass vaccination campaigns began in Nigeria, Niger, Afghanistan, India, Egypt and Pakistan, which are the six countries where polio is still endemic. The target was to free the world of polio by the end of 2004. But immunizations in the Nigerian state of Kano stopped after stories flared up suggesting that the vaccine causes HIV and triggers female infertility. Other areas of Nigeria soon halted their programmes too. Without vaccination, Nigeria's polio count has rocketed fivefold over the last year and the virus has spread into nearby countries such as Botswana. In response to the rumours, the Kano state governor sent an official delegation to Indonesia to visit the UNICEF-sanctioned vaccine production facility. The delegation collected samples of the vaccine and sent them to India to be tested for contaminants. Their results are now back, said Bruce Aylward, coordinator of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, at the World Health Assembly in Geneva, today. "They believe the vaccine to be safe," he said. Vaccinations will start in Kano in the next few weeks, say WHO officials, and later this year a mass immunization campaign will target the country as a whole. They believe that there is still time for Nigeria and the rest of the world to be polio-free by the end of year.

Polio made from scratch
First ever virus synthesized from chemicals alone.
12 July 2002 TOM CLARKE Chemicals and a computer: all you need to make a virus. Using genetic code as the recipe and carbon-containing chemicals as ingredients, researchers have made infective poliovirus entirely from scratch. This is the first time that a working biological entity has been made using chemistry alone. The team behind the achievement claim that it demonstrates the risk of further viruses being created from just their genetic code - by bioterrorists, for example. Other virologists are sceptical. Compared with living things such as bacteria, animals and plants, viruses are rudimentary - even their status as organisms is debated. Building complex life forms from scratch, at least using current technology, is still regarded as impossible. Eckard Wimmer of the State University of New York in Stony Brook and his colleagues assembled large chunks of the poliovirus genome by joining up the four chemical subunits of DNA in the correct sequence. They put this synthetic virus genome into "cell juice" - a mixture of protein-building molecules and catalysts - and watched the virus assemble itself The re-engineered virus infected mouse cells just as a normal poliovirus would and successfully replicated itself in them.

103. The Polio Vaccine And SV40
In 1996, we posted the interview with former polio vaccine researcher Ben Sweet who, in 1960, published the first scientific paper reporting
In 1996, we posted the interview with former polio vaccine researcher Ben Sweet who, in 1960, published the first scientific paper reporting that the polio vaccine used to inoculate millions of Americans was contaminated with the monkey cancer virus SV40. Publication of our interview with Dr. Sweet led to the NIH and FDA's very first joint conference examining a possible link between SV40 and human cancers. Several news sources have since followed up on our initial interview: " The Monkey Connection "
" New documents show the monkey virus is present in more recent polio vaccine "
" Rogue virus in the vaccine: Early polio vaccine harbored virus now feared to cause cancer in humans " The July 2001 San Francisco Chronicle stories raise the possibility that the monkey cancer virus SV40 may still be contaminating the polio vaccine lots today. While the FDA, NIH, and CDC continue to deny that there is any problem with the national vaccine program, we at have examined the history of the polio vaccine program and found certain problems to be endemic within it.
We have concluded that:
1) there may have never been a poliovirus epidemic in the first place

104. Polio Facts
Factsheet with caose, symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis, complications, treatment, and prevention.
  • The polio virus enters the body through the mouth, usually from hands contaminated with the stool of an infected person. Polio is preventable by immunization. Since polio immunization has become widespread in the United States, cases of polio are rare. However, polio remains a problem in many parts of the world.
What is polio? Polio, short for poliomyelitis, is a disease that can damage the nervous system and cause paralysis. Since polio immunization has become widespread in the United States, cases of polio are rare. However, polio remains a problem in many parts of the world. What is the infectious agent that causes polio? Polio is caused by any of three polio viruses. Where is polio found? Before the availability of polio immunization, polio was common worldwide. However, with strong immunization programs and efforts to rid the world of polio, circulation of polio viruses is limited to a decreasing number of countries. The greatest risk is now in the Indian subcontinent and, to a lesser extent, in West and Central Africa. How do people get polio?

Zimbabwe Stories
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2002 - Jeffrey Fenwick has had to leave Zimbabwe and his friends there as the political situation has become too unsafe for him and his family. He would like to thank everyone who has supported him in his efforts to bring aid to the sufferers of polio in his adopted country and looks forward to the day when he can return and continue his work. Please note changes on our How to Help page. When I was little, my best friend was my much older sister who had polio. She taught me to read, to think, and how to tell stories. So I owe her a lot. When June and I went to Zimbabwe to see my old friend Jeffery Fenwick I found that he was involved in helping disabled people, mostly polio victims. They are so courageous. For that reason, and for my sister’s sake I was glad to give him a hand. After all, Jeffery used to be my assistant priest so I was quite used to doing what he told me. Those people fight hard to have a decent life in spite of their disadvantages. They have so much guts and are so cheerful. It made me think what a soft life I have had by comparison. In Zimbabwe, disabled people are supposed to be supported out of taxes. But there never seems to be any money when it is needed. The taxes are there all right but the money seems to have evaporated before it reaches the needy. They have a real job to get enough to live. The Government and their many relations seem to be quite well fed though.

113. Siptah's Revenge! 1/20
My name is Siptah. I was born in Egypt and my mother was Queen Twosre, widow of Amenmesse. My life was short and not happy. My father
My name is Siptah.
I was born in Egypt and my mother was Queen Twosre, widow of Amenmesse. My life was short and not happy. My father, Amenmesse, seized the throne of Egypt from the previous Pharaoh, Seti II. But he ruled for only three years. When he died in 1200 BC I became Pharaoh. But the Gods had already punished me for my father's sins. When I was a boy, I was struck with a terrible disease. For some time it looked as if I would die. When I recovered, my left leg was withered and my foot was rigidly extended like a horse's hoof . I died in 1193 BC six years after becoming Pharaoh and my mother became Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt. I died suddenly and my tomb was not ready, so I could not be buried immediately. Eventually I took my rightful place in the Valley of the Kings. My body was undisturbed until 1905 when the tomb was excavated. The priests had worked their magic and by my journey to the afterlife I am immortal.
For three millennia I have waited.
Now I will have my revenge on the terrible disease which ruined my life

Q: Five years ago my left polio leg started getting weaker, so I decided to build up my good right leg. I went to the gym and used weight machines six days a week for a year to strengthen my quadriceps and hamstrings. I could lift 60 pounds! Last month my leg just stopped working. I couldn't move it at all. After a week my muscles began to work enough so that I can now just hobble on a walker. Have I killed off the nerves that run my leg muscles? Will my leg ever recover? Unfortunately, you're not the only polio survivor who has beat up his neurons to the point where they stop working. A recent Post-Polio Institute patient also overexercised her "good" leg until she couldn't move it at all for about a month. It has taken 10 weeks, but now she can lift her leg against gravity to about 45 degrees.

Polio and the era of fear
M illions of Americans had taken the Salk and Sabin anti-polio vaccines by 1962, and an era of fear ended. "Seeing polio go away was like witnessing a major miracle," said Malcolm C. Lancaster, MD, clinical professor of family practice Highly contagious, the poliovirus spread by contact with contaminated feces or oral secretions. Children were most vulnerable. The virus inflamed nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis of the muscles in the chest, leg or arms in severe cases. In 1950, 33,300 people were stricken. Lacking a vaccine, the nation tried to halt the spread of polio by closing public pools and parks. Parents ordered their children not to drink from public water fountains. Schools canceled graduations as a precaution. The March of Dimes raised money for a cure. Few people who saw them can forget the organization's poster children adorable tots with braces and crutches who posed in fund-raising pictures. For all its pain and grief, polio's era of fear provided knowledge that is useful today and would have been invaluable back in the '50s. For example:

120. Paralytic Polio Linked To Vaccinations
Paralytic polio Linked To Vaccinations. This scandal broke in Britain during 1949, an epidemic year for polio, other reports soon following from Australia.
Return to Index
Paralytic Polio Linked To Vaccinations
"'In the 1949 epidemic of poliomyelitis in this country cases of paralysis were occuring which were associated with inoculation procedures carried out within the month preceding the recorded date of onset of the illness'. (132) (Bill Bingham, Diphtheria - Part Two, The Campaigners' Handbook: The Infectious Diseases series, National Anti-Vivisection Society, 261 Goldhawk Rd, London W12 9PE, England, May 1988.)
"The medical profession has been aware of the damaging effects of vaccines on the immune system since their introduction. For example, the ability of pertussis and DTP vaccines to stimulate the onset of paralytic polio was first noted in 1909. In every polio epidemic since then DTP injections have caused the onset of polio disease. "In 1950, two careful studies were conducted in the state of New York to evaluate the reports of an association between the onset of paralytic polio and recent injections. Investigators contacted the families of all children who contracted polio during that year, a total of 1,300 cases in New York City and 2,137 cases in the remainder of New York State. A history of vaccinations received in the previous two months was obtained on each child and from a group of matched controls in the same population. Those studies discovered that children with polio were twice as likely to have received a DTP vaccination in the two months preceding the onset of polio than were the control children (Korns et al., 1952; Greenberg et al., 1952).
