When zealots and charlatans tell you that the science is vaccines are safe and effective, the example of polio vaccines show they do not know what they are talking about [or are lying to you?]. This CHS article is about: serious injury and death caused by the original and current polio vaccines; the lie that polio vaccines eradicated “polio”; how polio vaccines are causing cancer today.
What was called “polio” in the 1940s and 1950s is not what is called “polio” today. So one thread here is about eradicating a disease not with a vaccine but by calling it something else. The problem did not go away. An article in the British Medical Journal concluded “The only way to eradicate paralytic poliomyelitis is to stop vaccinating.“: Feature Polio. Polio eradication: a complex end game BMJ 2012; 344 doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmj.e2398 (Published 02 April 2012) Cite this as: BMJ 2012;344:e2398
Recent research indicates the vaccine was and is a big problem.
Polio vaccine causes non polio acute flaccid paralysis [or NPAFP] which is clinically identical to polio but twice as deadly – redefining a disease does not eradicate the problem – the problem remains but has a different name. In other words, research shows that children are getting paralysis and dying just by getting the polio vaccine – it is just not called polio [which is also one way of faking the effectiveness of a vaccine which causes temporary and longer term paralysis and death and so is not preventing it]:
One of the problems with “science” in biological sciences is that organisms are unbelievably complex. When “life” or biological “scientists” claim to “know“, 1) they don’t and 2) they can’t. Just because it is believed the “science” says that doing one thing can bring about one change, does not mean it is known what cascades of other harms caused by that change can be known. A single cell is complex beyond the full comprehension of even those who call themselves “scientists” who tinker with them. Even single cells are well beyond the capability of anyone to devise scientific theories to predict reliably what will happen when changes are made. Multiply that complexity for the trillions of cells and other complex structures within the human body and you start to get an idea.
It has been known for some long time now that the SV40 virus [polyomavirus simian virus 40 (SV40)] which was for a long time part of the polio vaccine continues to cause cancers and deaths today. This CHS article brings you details of a peer reviewed scientific paper which reviews the scientific evidence. The full extent of the death toll over many decades is not known. No one knows exactly how many people have been killed by cancers caused by the “life-saving” polio vaccine. It is without doubt very likely to be many hundreds or even thousands of times greater than the numbers of lives allegedly saved from the [redefined] “polio” by the polio vaccine.

Abstract: The polyomavirus simian virus 40 (SV40) is a known oncogenic DNA virus which induces primary brain and bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and lymphomas in laboratory animals. Persuasive evidence now indicates that SV40 is causing infections in humans today and represents an emerging pathogen. A meta-analysis of molecular, pathological, and clinical data from 1,793 cancer patients indicates that there is a significant excess risk of SV40 associated with human primary brain cancers, primary bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Experimental data strongly suggest that SV40 may be functionally important in the development of some of those human malignancies. Therefore, the major types of tumors induced by SV40 in laboratory animals are the same as those human malignancies found to contain SV40 markers. The Institute of Medicine recently concluded that “the biological evidence is of moderate strength that SV40 exposure could lead to cancer in humans under natural conditions.” This review analyzes the accumulating data that indicate that SV40 is a pathogen which has a possible etiologic role in human malignancies. Future research directions are considered.
