Polio was not caused by a Virus, nor cured by a Vaccine
Polio was caused by Lead, Arsenic, and DDT, and the government knew it
This is a summary of literature on the truth of Polio. This summary has a lot of “cut and paste” of original sources. It’s my belief that you should read the original sources to learn the truth. A quick summary:
The polio virus never caused the symptoms associated with "polio." In the early 20th century "polio" was caused by lead and arsenic spraying of fruit trees. Doctors as early as 1907 and throughout the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s noted that poliomyelitis was caused by spraying of fruit trees.
In the 1940s, DDT was added to the mix of toxic elements causing neurological damage. Dr. Morton Biskund published his research in 1949 that DDT also caused the symptoms associated with polio, but he was restricted to reporting that "Disease X" was not cause by a "hypothetical Virus X." Later in 1951 he testified in front of Congress. He was ignored and censored like doctors today are on Ivermectin. I found one old grainy photo of this brilliant and brave man.
DDT also caused "Polio," or neurological damage. DDT was marketed to the public as a preventative measure for Polio. Sound familiar? The public believed they should kill mosquitos that carried the "virus" which did not cause Polio.
After Jonas Salk made a vaccine in 1955, the AMA required doctors to no longer use the term Polio in 1956 to make it appear as if the "virus" had disappeared. In reality, the vaccines were also causing the same paralysis. The “virus” never spread at all and everyone knew it. It was one big lie.
Sounds like conspiracy theory doesn't it? Well in a way I suppose it is. It's also called very-well referenced history and truth. For details on the family of actual viruses falsely associated with Polio, I recommend reading "Polio" and poliovirus in Pesticides and Polio: A Critique of Scientific Literature.
Timeline Begins Below
1890s. Lead arsenate (PbHAsO 4) was first used in apple orchards in the 1890s to combat the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), a destructive insect pest. This pesticide was very popular among farmers because of its effectiveness, low cost, ease of use, and persistence. The History of Lead Arsenate Use in Apple Production: Comparison of its Impact in Virginia with Other State
1907. In 1907, Dr. H. C. Emerson54, Massachusetts State Inspector of Health, District 14, investigating an epidemic of poliomyelitis in that state, made a careful inquiry regarding the diet. No infant who was fed exclusively on the breast developed poliomyelitis. He found in six cases that fruit and berries had been a large item of the diet. In the cases of two infants, bananas and berries had been given in the diet in addition to breast milk. In three cases of poliomyelitis, the illness was attributed to the eating of large amounts of blackberries and blueberries. In one case the illness was credited to eating heartily of English mulberries. In 39 instances it was stated that food supplied were bought from fruit and vegetable peddlers in their localities. Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1921. Rosenau102 (1921) stated: "Monkeys have so far never been known to contract the disease "spontaneously" even though they are kept in intimate association with infected monkeys." Twenty years later (1941), Dr. John A. Toomey103, a poliomyelitis authority, stated: "No animal gets the disease from another no matter how intimately exposed." Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1920s. Lead Artesenate Spraying of Apple Trees in Virginia
1925. Lead Artesenate Spraying of Apple Trees in Washington
1929. In the year 1929, almost 30 million pounds of lead arsenate and calcium arsenate were spread across this country's fields and orchards. A is for Arsenic (pesticides, if you please)
1930. In the spring of 1930, there occurred in Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi and other states an epidemic of paralysis.16,17 The patients gave a history of drinking commercial extract of ginger. Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1932-1933. Toomey and August59 (1932) pointed out that some authors thought that poliomyelitis is a disease of gastrointestinal origin which might follow the ingestion of foodstuffs. In 193360, they noted that the epidemic peak of poliomyelitis corresponds with the harvest peak of perishable fruits and vegetables. They called attention to the fact that the disease occurs only in those countries which raise the same type of agricultural products. Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1935. "in 1935, on a weekly radio program sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the host suggested that the old-time school rhyme "A is for Apple" be changed as follows: A is for Arsenate/Lead if you please/Protector of Apples/Against Archenemies." A is for Arsenic (pesticides, if you please)
1939. Barber64 (1939) reported four cases of poliomyelitis that developed simultaneously on the same day from the eating of strawberries in a single house of a boarding school. Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1941. Chenault65 (1941) noted that the history of poliomyelitis points to a "suggested parallelism between a number of epidemics and the appearance of fresh fruits and vegetables." Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1945 - 1953. This is a graph of rates of polio and DDT compiled by Jim West in Pesticides and Polio: A Critique of Scientific Literature
1945. DDT spraying to control mosquitoes at Jones Beach State Park on Long Island in 1945. You and Me and DDT.
1946. Gebhardt and McKay68 (1946) found during an epidemic of poliomyelitis in Utah that of a total of 206 persons surveyed, 192 persons, or 93.2 per cent, had one to two weeks prior to the onset of the disease eaten fresh fruits. The authors found in Utah, New York and California, during 1943, that the cases of poliomyelitis paralleled the harvest peaks Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
“Simultaneously with the occurrence of this disorder [X-disease], a number of related changes occurred in the incidence of known diseases. The most striking of these is poliomyelitis. In the United States the incidence of polio had been increasing prior to 1945 at a fairly constant rate, but its epidemiologic characteristics remained unchanged. Beginning in 1946, the rate of increase more than doubled. Since then remarkable changes in the character of the disease have been noted. Contrary to all past experience, the disease has remained epidemic year after year.”
1947. Advertisement in Time Magazine.
1948. Abbott71 (1948), of Auckland, New Zealand, stated: "The public has always been fully convinced that they caught poliomyelitis from one another by direct infection. The 'germ' idea is indeed deeply ingrained in both the profession and the public. It will be many years before our prolific writers of medical textbooks attain the degree of sophistication that would enable them to understand how and why poliomyelitis would be more likely to be contacted from the flour-bag, or some homely article of food, rather than from their neighbors." Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
Barondes72 (1949) points out that a study of the epidemiology of poliomyelitis shows a definite correlation with the harvesting of fruit and vegetable crops and to changes in climate, weather and humidity. The harvesting of such fruits as cherries, grapes, berries, apricots, etc. and the edible vegetables, as lettuce, radish, cucumbers, etc. usually from June to September, corresponds with the period of poliomyelitis epidemics, Barondes points out.Toomey et al74 (1949) made some important experimental observations that appear to show a correlation of the poison and virus theories of poliomyelitis. They considered it possible that a food (fruit) which enters the gastrointestinal tract could in some way act as a precursor of catalytic enzyme on a normal constituent of the tract and accelerate the production of poliomyelitis. Various materials, together with fruit extracts, were tested. Ralph Scobey testimony to Congress (1953)
1949. Dr. Morton Biskund and Irving Beiber publish their researh that "X disease" that had been attributed to a "hypothetical virus X" was actually caused by DDT.
1950. A common scene. Notice any masks?
1951. Rodney Dodson writes "In 1951, American researcher Albert Sabin noticed that the US Military in the Philippines had an astonishingly high rate of Polio. Approximately 1 in 79 recruits. The native Philippine people considered Polio the white man's disease, as it didn’t seem to affect anyone else. Sabin also noticed similar coincidences in China and Japan. Every US Military recruits had to undergo a delousing with DDT. This required complete body fumigation. Villagers near the military bases however were not fumigated, nor were they affected by Polio. Although they were often intermixing with the soldiers, they never contracted the “killer virus.”
April 1952. Testimony of Ralph Scobey to Congress. "Paralysis, resulting from poisoning, has probably been known since the time of Hippocrates (460-437 B.C.), Boerhaave,3 Germany, (1765) stated: "We frequently find persons rendered paralytic by exposing themselves imprudently to quicksilver, dispersed into vapors by the fire, as gilders, chemists, miners, etc., and perhaps there are other poisons, which may produce the same disease, even externally applied." In 1824, Cooke,4 England, stated: "Among the exciting causes of the partial palsies we may reckon the poison of certain mineral substances, particularly of quick silver, arsenic, and lead. The fumes of these metals or the receptance of them in solution into the stomach, have often causes paralysis."
1953. In 1953, when Biskind’s writings were published, the United States had just endured its greatest polio epidemic. The entire public was steeped in dramatic images–a predatory poliovirus, nearly a million dead and paralyzed children, iron lungs, struggling doctors and dedicated nurses. The late president Franklin D. Roosevelt had been memorialized as a polio victim who was infected with the deadly poliovirus near the beautiful and remote island of Campobello. The media was saturated with positive images of scientific progress and the marvels of DDT to kill disease-carrying mosquitos. Jonas Salk was in the wings, preparing to be moved center stage. Pesticides and Polio: A Critique of Scientific Literature
April 12, 1955. An announcement is made that Jonas Salk's polio vaccine is safe and effective.
1956. In 1956 the AMA (The American Medical Association) instructed each licensed medical doctor that they could no longer classify polio as polio, or their license to practice would be terminated. Any paralysis was now to be diagnosed as AFP (acute flaccid paralysis) MS, MD, Bell’s Palsy, cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Guillian-Barre (GBS), meningitis, provocation poliomyelitis, transverse myelitis, viral or “aseptic” meningitis, Chinese Paralytic syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, etc Included under the umbrella term “Acute Flaccid Paralysis” are Poliomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, GBS, enteroviral encephalopathy, traumatic neuritis and Reye’s syndrome. http://bit.ly/1Ml3rpX This was orchestrated purposely to make the public believe polio was eradicated by the polio vaccine campaign but because the polio vaccine contained toxic ingredients directly linked to paralysis, polio cases (not identified as polio) were skyrocketing…but only in vaccinated areas. http://bit.ly/1WEHYzR Today most vaccine inserts declare paralysis as a potential side effect but “reframe it” as Guillian Barre or simply “paralysis”. This is purposely designed to obfuscate the public’s understanding of what causes paralysis, which is heavy metal poisoning plus vaccine induced autoimmunity……that ends with the body attacking and destroying its’ own nervous system pathways, in an rabid attempt to clean itself of the injected toxins. Guillian Barre and paralysis, as listed vaccine side effects, are also a way to get the public running east looking for a sunset, keeping them as far away as possible from connecting the dots around this medical polio obfuscation. Aluminum and mercury are ingredients in most (if not all) vaccines today and both are proven to cause paralysis and motor neuron destruction………..known as many different names, depending on just how much the science/medical authority figure in the room wants to lead you astray that day.
