The Vaccine Myth of “Polio-free” Status – Polio Vaccine Caused 53,000 Paralysis Victims in India Last Year

There is a dirty secret in the vaccine business that is very well documented: the live oral polio vaccine can actually spread polio and causes "non-polio acute flaccid paralysis." This is very well-known throughout the world, but in the pro-vaccine U.S. mainstream media, this information is seldom, if ever, published, so most Americans are still under the assumption that polio has been eradicated due to vaccines. Unfortunately, that is a false belief not supported by the facts. As usual, we need to look at reports outside the U.S. media to find out what is happening with vaccines around the world. This week, LiveMint in India reported on the polio-free myth in India, explaining how the live polio vaccine was responsible for increases in paralysis. LiveMint is the second largest business newspaper in India, and has an exclusive relationship with the Wall Street Journal. So this report was from "mainstream" media in India. What is clear from this report, and well documented in peer-reviewed literature, is that the term "polio-free status" is completely meaningless. The designation of a country as "polio-free" is simply a triumphant marketing cry by pharmaceutical interests to continue promoting their live polio vaccines, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that it does more harm than good.
