AN OVERVIEW ON THE POLIO VACCINE
AN OVERVIEW ON THE POLIO VACCINE

I get asked regularly about the polio epidemic in the 1900’s and those who ask me feel that the vaccine is responsible for saving thousands of lives. They also believe the vaccine eradicated polio. I share this with you to hopefully give those who grew up in the 1920’s to 1950’s a different point of view. Often, they recall someone who was struck with polio or other infectious illnesses that would leave them paralyzed or permanently ill. Yes, it is true that many were unfortunate and suffered with paralysis but we must not assume that because polio is no longer a threat in this country that the vaccine is the reason for this decline. Let me addresses this topic from a historical view.
First, looking back historically, these infectious illnesses referred to were very prevalent in the mid 1800’s to early 1900’s. Several studies have proven that these infectious diseases were almost completely gone before vaccines were introduced. The death rates were at all time lows through out United States, Great Brittan and countries without vaccines also had decreases. I believe that Americans have been sold a lie. The following quote is from a very reliable source and is one of many that document that death from infectious illnesses was at an all time low before vaccines were introduced.
“According to the World Health Statistics Annual of 1973-1976 said that there had been a steady decline in infectious diseases in most developing countries regardless of vaccines administered. They believe that the diseases disappeared as a result of improved sanitation, improved water supplies improved personal hygiene and better nutrition. In addition, diseases for which there were no vaccines also declined dramatically. From 1850 to 1940, diseases had declined by 90% and were at an all time low, just when vaccines were being introduced.”
Imagine living in the turn of the century where we lived with animals and their by- products, used their fur and feathers in our homes, no refrigeration, no running water, poor food storage infected with rodents and bugs, poor personal hygiene, shallow wells near out houses, ponds and rivers for washing our bodies shared by animals…. It was not a clean environment. As we began to improve all of these things including waste water treatment and sewer systems, better nutrition and clean drinking water, illnesses and death from infectious illness decreased dramatically. Another great study that comes up with the same conclusion, Medical Measures and the Decline of Mortality by , St. Martin’s Press, New York states “It is estimated that at most, 3.5% of the total decline in mortality since 1900 could be ascribed to medical measures introduced for the diseases considered.” Furthermore, medical measures were introduced several decades after marked decline had already set in and having no detectable influences in most instances.”
The American Medical Association and the Center for Disease Control have taken credit for eradicating diseases in the United States when in fact; they were on their way out because of previously stated reasons. Small pox is often referred to as the “great success story” and yet the vaccine had very little to do with eradication. Only 10% of the world’s population received the vaccine. In a June 19-20, 2002 meeting in Atlanta Georgia after 911 when the government was debating to bring back the small pox vaccine, the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practice said, “Small pox would have died out on its own due to improved sanitation, improved water supply and improved nutrition.”
I have been researching the “risks of vaccinations” for the last 27 years. What I have learned about the polio vaccines used in this country is not only shocking but will affect millions. Consider these facts:
It is known that the live polio vaccine contained SV40, a cancer-producing virus and for the first time a hearing was held in Washington on September 9, 2003 by the Subcommittee on Human Health and Wellness, U.S. Government Reform Committee Chaired by Congressman Burton (R-IN). SV40 is associated with brain, bone and lung tumors found in children and adults today from vaccinations. This vaccine was used until the late 90’s.
Previously in Washington on August 3, 1999 at a Polio Vaccine Hearing by the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight and House of Representatives, the following testimony was not reported in the evening news! I have met Dr. Howard Urnovitz on several occasions when he has presented the results of his research. He has dedicated his life to cancer research and vaccines. Here is a portion of his written testimony: “I am grateful to this committee for allowing me to address the issue of vaccine safety. I am Dr. Howard B. Urnovitz. In 1979, I received my doctorate degree in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Michigan, where I studied vaccines. I am testifying today as the Scientific Director of the Chronic Illness Research Foundation. For the record, I am also the chief science officer of a biotechnology corporation. On the issue of informed consent: Had my mother and father known that the polio virus vaccines of the 1950s were heavily contaminated with more than 26 monkey viruses, including the cancer virus SV40, I can say with certainty that they would not have allowed their children and themselves to take those vaccines. Both of my parents might not have developed cancers suspected of being vaccine-related, and might even be alive today. Government, industry, and medicine should embrace the ethical principle of informed consent about possible adverse reactions associated with vaccines.”
Our government is trying to hide behind “junk science” riddled with conflict of interest. Our Institute of Medicine, Federal Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control all refuse to acknowledge the injuries caused by vaccination. The time is coming when they will not be able to deny their responsibility in the catastrophic rise in illness due to toxic vaccines. Thank God, we stopped using the live polio virus vaccine in the late 1990’s because it was the cause of almost all of the polio in this country since the 1980’s when they began to track it.
How did we get so programmed? Could it be that a whole generation of Americans has been told a big lie? The reality is that we are the victims of very carefully planned out conditioning that has been going on for many years. According to Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, renowned pediatrician for 30 years and author of several books such as, “The Medical Heretic” and “How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, he writes the following; “The pediatrician serves as the recruiter for the medical profession. He indoctrinates your child from birth into a lifelong dependency on medical intervention. The best way to raise a healthy child is to keep him/her away from the doctors except emergency care. Most doctors ignore the fact that the human body is a wondrous machine with the astonishing capacity to repair itself.” Dr. Mendelsohn goes on to say, “The first stage of the indoctrination is the well baby visit- a cherished ritual of the pediatrician that enhances their income but does nothing constructive for your child. Well baby visits are worthless…” page 24-24. “The purpose of the pediatrician is to vaccinate your child.” In chapter 19 he states, “The greatest threat of childhood disease lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them-mass immunizations.” He goes on to call vaccines the “sacred cow” of modern medicine.
Most parents do not know what they are consenting to, just as I believe most doctors who promote vaccines do not know what they were injecting when they vaccinate. After attending my vaccine presentations, most parents will think hard and long before giving any vaccines and most importantly, will make a fully informed decision, understanding all the risks.
I believe in Freedom and Liberty. As a parent, an American and an adult, I do not want my government telling me what I must put into my body or my children’s bodies. I no longer trust those who hold powerful positions in our government because I believe their motive is no longer the well being of the citizens of this country. Vaccines, at this time, are the only mandated drugs and therefore, should be proven safe and effective. There are no long term safety studies and the studies the drug manufactures present are flawed and bias. The Institute of Medicine gets a percent of every vaccine given in this country. There should be no financial ties allowed.
I love this quote!
“When we give the power to government to make medical decisions for us, in essence, the state owns our bodies.”
Dr. Ron Paul M.D. U.S. Representative, 2008 Republican nominee for president.
Parents, it is up to you to make this very important decision. Take the time necessary to investigate all the childhood recommended vaccines before you sign a consent form. We do not live with the same threat of illness as the generations before us did. We have many options other than vaccination that do not carry the level of risk. Because of vaccines, we now have a whole generation of children who suffer with chronic, life long health issues. I believe there is a happy balance where we are active in promoting health. My opinion is that when a healthy child gets normal childhood illnesses, it will help that child develop a strong immune system. Nothing in the body gets strengthened by avoidance, only by over coming challenges.
I have spent thousands of hours investigating the facts and now you can benefit from my 27 years of work. My three hour fully documented DVD; “Are Vaccines Safe?” is now available.
I appreciate your emails and your opinions are welcome.

I have been working in the chiropractic field since April of 1981. I have organized workshops outside the office on health topics and have been public speaking on health issues for the last thirteen years. I attend yearly vaccine conferences sponsored by the state of Michigan as well as other conferences on issues pertaining to vaccines.
Mary’s studies have included natural cooking, natural birthing, home births, breast-feeding. I have had four home births and have successfully raised our five children outside the medical model utilizing a vitalistic healthcare approach (no drugs or surgeries). I have researched vaccines/immunizations for the last twenty-seven years and in August of 2006; I released my DVD called, “Are Vaccines Safe?”
