Bill Gates Polio Eradication Plans – To Cause The Polio Equivalent of 235 Years of Cases Of A Twice As Deadly Disease

Bill Gates outlined his plans for polio eradication on the UK’s BBC television last night as the invited guest to deliver the annual Richard Dimbleby lecture.  Instead of feting Gates, the BBC’s journalists should have been spelling out what Bill Gates’s plans mean and the concern the aim of polio eradication is impossible in any event. 

In 2006 Science ran articles reporting how experts involved in attempted eradication had become highly skeptical about and doubted the ability ever to eradicate polio: Polio eradication: is it time to give up? Science May 12, 2006 Roberts, Leslie

But Gates ploughs on regardless whilst his plans will result in causing thousands of cases of a twice as deadly indistinguishable disease, called non polio accute flaccid paralysis [NPAFP].  This will be the result of the especially intensive vaccination campaigns which it seems will continue until not one case of polio is reported: New Paper – Polio Vaccine – Disease Caused by Vaccine Twice As Fatal – Polio Eradication Impossible

To get an idea of the figures take the 47,500 NPAFP cases just in India against the 205 cases total worldwide of polio.  Bill Gates wants to cause the current NPAFP equivalent of 235 years of polio cases but for a disease, NPAFP which is twice as fatal as polio.  Third world children and their families will pay the price with Bill tucked up comfortably in Seattle USA with his billions.

And last night the BBC were sucking up big-time to the world’s second richest man when what Gates’ plans mean and why he is really doing this deserves full investigation and reporting.  Clearly, the BBC’s independence and reputation for reliable reporting is no more and long gone.

W.H.O. AND OTHER EXPERTS BELIEVE POLIO ERADICATION IMPOSSIBLE

The polio vaccination campaign experts who believe eradication impossible include Isao Arita, a WHO expert from Japan, Donald A. Henderson, the director of the smallpox program, polio expert Konstantin Chumakov of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Vadim Agol of the Russian Academy of Medical Science’s Chumakov Institute for Poliomyelitis. Arita in 1990 started directing the polio eradication campaign in the Western Pacific in 1997 and who predicated his faith in medicine’s ability to triumph over viruses.

Dr Puliyel’s paper implies that polio eradication is impossible because an artificial virus from a lab could leak out and circulate: New Paper – Polio Vaccine – Disease Caused by Vaccine Twice As Fatal – Polio Eradication Impossible

Whilst such leaks are possible and have happened with other viruses, there are other issues about man-made polio viruses affecting the feasibility of eradication and the continued circulation of the polio virus. Leaks from a laboratory of an artificial virus are not the main or only issue affecting the feasibility of polio eradication.

Additionally, we do not know how much polio virus there is in silent circulation – with asymptomatic non clinical cases.

In other words, the virus may never be eliminated – we do not see the clinical cases. The only cases of polio which are reported are paralytic ones – the reporting system is for paralytic polio cases – cases where paralysis is clearly evident – and very short temporary paralysis cases where the individual rapidly recovers may never be noted as polio or reported.

…. the confirmation in 2000 that vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) can circulate and cause polio outbreaks, making the use of OPV after interruption of wild poliovirus transmission incompatible with a polio-free world. A comprehensive strategy has been developed to minimize the risks …. appropriate long-term biocontainment of poliovirus stocks (whether for vaccine production, diagnosis, or research), the controlled reintroduction of any live poliovirus vaccine (i.e., from an OPV stockpile), and appropriate use of the inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV). ….. there is wide agreement that no strategy would entirely eliminate the potential risks to a polio-free world.

Was Polio the Problem In the First Place

We cannot be sure now whether the paralysis cases of the 1940s and 1950s pandemics were caused by polio virus. In other words, is the elimination of a polio virus relevant to eliminating childhood paralysis cases at all? This is an issue which was being discussed in the 1950s and still appears to be a live issue: “The history of the etiology of poliomyelitis is a history of errors.” J.F. Eggers, Medicine, 1954:

If Not Poliovirus, Then What Is Causing Today’s Cases of Flaccid Paralysis?

Will The Poliovirus Eradication Program Rid the World of Childhood Paralysis? With So Little Poliovirus Detected Around the World, What Is Causing Today’s Outbreaks of Acute Flaccid Paralysis? By Neenyah Ostrom April 20, 2001

The “slow” explosive rise and peaks of the graphs of the supposed 1940s & 50s polio pandemics covering a 20 year period do not fit the known pattern of other infectious diseases – compare the graphs shown here: Vaccines Did Not Save Us – 2 Centuries of Official Statistics

… with this from the US CDC:

Additionally, a number of the first vaccination campaigns of the vaccine era are associated with increases in childhood paralysis including diphtheria and pertussis [whooping cough] campaigns; Pertussis Vaccination and Serious Central Nervous System Disorders: Early Case Series Evidence and Public Reaction

  2. Mr Gates gave not one word to Breast Feeding or clean water or sanitation in his lecture – surely these are the ‘miracles’ of life. UNICEF put Breast Feeding as the number one factor for reducing mortality of the under 5′s in the developing world, and the WHO put clean water and sanitation as number one overall for reducing mortality. Water Aid, the UK charity, estimates that clean water cuts 80% of GP visits in the developing world, and included it in last year’s Christmas campaign.

    Mr Gates promoted the rotavirus vaccine in his lecture but exclusive breastfeeding may work far better reducing cases by 90%

    How can someone involved in the business of making life better for children in the developing world, focus on vaccines, when other factors may be more effective, safer, and benefit the whole village?

  3. @Anna This was a talk about Polio. This particular talk may not have addressed issues of Breastfeeding, or Water Sanitation, but the Gates foundation can clearly be seen to be fully supportive of such things if you go look for it:

    Vaccinating is one part of the puzzle. All the other stuff you mention are other parts. All parts are vital, and none are as ignored as you can make them seem by making the assumption, or allowing it to be made, that the Gates foundation is a vaccine-only program. Take a little time to see what they do, and then re-appraise.

  4. @Anna I’m with you anna. And so are many highly informed, experienced in the field, others.

    If I had Gates’ money I’d be focusing primarily on water & sanitation, nutrition and building economies before anything else – especially given these figures :

    Number of global wild polio virus cases in 2012 : 222

    ( from : http://www.polioeradication.org/Dataandmonitoring/Poliothisweek.aspx )

    And, that according to this article ( ” World Water Day: Dirty water kills more people than violence, says UN” ), 2.2 million people die yearly from diarrhea / sanitation issues ( including 1 infant every 20 secs ).

    ( referenced from UNEP ( United Nations Environment Program ) in an article here : http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Africa/2010/0322/World-Water-Day-Dirty-water-kills-more-people-than-violence-says-UN

    It’s hard to know where his head’s at without talking with him personally. Amongst other things that I won’t go into here, his motivation might also come from having a simplistic, and typically mechanistic, view of life and how it works.

    Vax should be way down the list of priorities in my opinion ( if he has to have it )

  5. “We cannot be sure now whether the paralysis cases of the 1940s and 1950s pandemics were caused by polio virus.”

    Looking at the graph of reported polio rates from 1920 to present the REAL problem is how to explain the rise and fall of reported polio cases between 1940 and 1960. One need not be a polio expert to confidently state the cause was almost certainly ENVIRONMENTAL.

    A little sleuthing soon reveals the cause to be none other than the “Greatest medical advancement of the 20th century” “Vaccination”.
