No. 19 Global eradication of poliomyelitis by the year 2000. The Challenge The original hope was to eradicate polio by the year 2000.
End-decade Databases Indicators Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) Home ... Search No. 19: Global eradication of poliomyelitis by the year 2000 The Challenge: The original hope was to eradicate polio by the year 2000. While that goal has not been met, it is still possible that every remaining chain of polio transmission can be broken in 2002, and the world formally certified polio-free in 2005 after three years without any polio cases. Like smallpox, the first disease to be brought to an end, polio is eradicable because poliovirus infects only humans, with no animal reservoir. The virus cannot survive long in the environment without a host, and effective vaccines are available to deprive the virus of its host. 'Silent' transmission
The vast majority of those infected by polio - at least nine out of ten - experience no symptoms at all, and the remainder experience mild symptoms resembling flu. But one in 200 will suffer irreversible paralysis, usually of the legs. Between 5% and 10% of the paralysed will die from paralysis of their breathing muscles. Though polio can strike at any age, more than half the victims are under three. Poliovirus enters through the mouth, multiplies in the intestine and is shed in the faeces for several weeks after infection. It spreads rapidly by unsafe water and hand-to-mouth contact, especially in overcrowded conditions where sanitation is poor and faecal contamination prevalent. Houseflies also contribute, by transferring virus from faeces to food. Toddlers not yet toilet-trained transmit polio readily even in hygienic environments

    by Viera Scheibner Ph.D. This book (published 1993) is a concise summary of the results of orthodox medical research into vaccines and their effects. It aims to inform medical professionals, parents and the general public about short and longterm dangerous side-effects, including brain damage and death, of vaccines; of the ineffectiveness of vaccines in preventing infectious diseases, as shown by epidemics in fully vaccinated populations; and the causal link between DPT and polio vaccines and cot death.

    The Controlled Clinical Trial: An Analysis
    by Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D. In THE CONTROLLED CLINICAL TRIAL: AN ANALYSIS, Harris Coulter, author of DIVIDED LEGACY: A HISTORY OF THE SCHISM IN MEDICAL THOUGHT and DPT: A SHOT IN THE DARK, critically examines the usefulness of randomised clinical trials. His thorough research, based almost exclusively on medical literature, reveals why the "controlled clinical trial" (CCT) cannot guarantee drug safety and efficacy. Coulter argues that while allopaths talk pompously about this so-called "gold standard" of medicine, no controlled clinical trial matching the textbook definition has ever been performed. "Because the theoretical requirements are unrealistic and unscientific. How can you test a drug on 12 or 100 or 1,000 identical or 'homogenous' people all with the same thing wrong with them? Allopaths can't even find five homogenous patients. You'll always find things that are different between people, because we are all chemically, physically, structurally, and emotionally unique. The CCT can never tell a doctor how a given patient will react to a given drug at any given time. The findings from the so-called controlled clinical trial are useless in one-on-one doctor patient interactions." THE CONTROLLED CLINICAL TRIAL not only investigates the science behind the CCT, but also delves into its history and politics. According to Coulter, the CCT has become popular primarily for political reasons. "It's used as a stick to beat alternative medicine with for failing to perform these trials. Since these trials are very expensive it costs about $200 million today to get a new drug on the market the controlled clinical trial is really an instrument for limiting competition in medicine, and for raising the costs of medicines to the public."
