Polio, more specifically poliomyelitis, is an infection caused by the poliovirus. This enterovirus is asymptomatic or causes minor cold like symptoms, in over 95% of those infected. Most people who get infected with poliovirus, about 72 out of 100, will not have any visible symptoms. About 1 out of 4 people with poliovirus infection will have mild symptoms that may include:
Of the Less Than 1% of Polio Infections In Which a Child Experiences Paralysis, Only 2-5% Are Fatal
The first polio vaccine, an Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV), was created by Jonas Salk in 1953, followed shortly after by the live attenuated polio vaccine (OPV) created by Albert Sabin in 1956. Salk’s IPV was grown on monkey kidney cells (Vero Cells) and inactivated with formalin.
After a failure to inactivate the vaccine virus at Cutter Laboratories in 1955, over 40,000 kids were infected with polio and hundreds experienced vaccine induced paralysis. As a result of this failure 10 children were killed. In addition to this occurence known as The Cutter Incident, the monkey kidney cells, or Vero cells, used to grow the IPV (and still in use today) have been shown to be contaminated with Simian Virus-40 (SV-40), a cancer causing virus only previously found in primates. Millions of American citizens have been injected with vaccines contaminated with this virus. CDC admits to its existence, but dismisses any link to oncogensis in humans, despite the scientific consensus:
- Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine
- Cell and molecular biology of simian virus 40: implications for human infections and disease
- SV40 and human tumours
- Evidence of an important role for SV40 in mesothelioma.
- Emergent human pathogen simian virus 40 and its role in cancer
- Research on SV 40 Exposure and the Development of Cancer
All Cases of Polio in the US Since 1979 Have Been Vaccine Strains

Polio Overdiagnosis Results in False Sense of Infection Decline as Better Diagnostic Criteria is Established
Today in the US we use only the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV), but the oral polio vaccine is still used in other countries. CDC recommends children get four doses of IPV at 2 and 4 months, between 6 and 18 months, and again between 4 and 6 years old. There are several combination vaccines on the market in the US that contain polio vaccine components, however for simplification purposes we will be looking at only the singular polio vaccine, IPOL.
IPOL, similar to Jonas Salk’s IPV, uses poliovirus grown in Vero Cells. In addition to the previously discussed issues with these cells, an FDA report prepared by Rebecca Sheets, PhD, states, “Vero cells are sensitive to infection with SV-40, SV-5, measles, arboviruses, reoviruses, rubella, simian adenoviruses, polioviruses, influenza viruses, parainfluenza viruses, respiratory syncytial viruses, vaccinia, and others.“.
Vaccines Not Studied For Long-term Carcinogenic Effects or Fertility Impairment
The history of the poliovirus is slightly more complicated than the vaccine industry’s narrative of eradication via vaccine, but an investigation into the facts reveals a much less terrifying situation than the industry would have us believe. Use your discernment and analyze the data yourself to make an informed decision.
