If you received a polio vaccine — and who didn’t? — you may have been exposed to a virus that turns normal cells into cancerous ones.
Even worse, the infection may mysteriously be passed on to your children and grandchildren.
Mass vaccination campaigns of the 1950s and 1960s are now suspected in thousands of deaths per year via a cancer-causing virus contained in the early polio vaccines. But this doesn’t mean you’ll get cancer for sure. Keep reading and I’ll explain.
Researchers discovered this deadly vaccine tragedy in 1994 — when Dr. Michele Carbone found the SV40 virus in 60 percent of lung cancers (mesotheliomas) studied, 33 percent of osteosarcoma bone cancers and 40 percent of other bone cancers.
Virus From Monkeys
Known as SV40, this virus came from dead monkeys whose kidney cells were used to culture polio vaccines. More than 98 million people in the U.S., plus more in other countries, were exposed to the contaminated vaccine.
And it appears there’s a link to you, even if you were not vaccinated. Because the famous polio vaccine turned out to be a medical marvel with a deadly glitch.
The polio virus has been around forever. Yet the virus didn’t cause paralysis until sometime in the late 1800s. In fact, 95 percent of polio cases occur without symptoms. Most victims just get a mild fever. But in a tiny fraction of 1 percent of victims, the virus penetrates the blood-brain barrier to cause paralysis or death. People became terrified of the disease.
