What Is Polio?
Polio is a crippling and potentially deadly infectious disease caused by a virus that spreads from person to person invading the brain and spinal cord and causing paralysis. Because polio has no cure, vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and the only way to stop the disease from spreading. The spread of polio has never stopped in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. Poliovirus has been reintroduced and continues to spread in Chad and Democratic Republic of the Congo after the spread of the virus was previously stopped.
In the late 1940s to the early 1950s, in the United States alone, polio crippled around 35,000 people each year making it one of the most feared diseases of the twentieth century. By 1979 the country became polio free. For more about polio and how it was eradicated in the U.S., see A Polio-Free U.S. Thanks to Vaccine Efforts. The eradication of polio from the western hemisphere is among the most significant public health achievements of all time, but victory over polio cannot be claimed until the entire world is made safe from the disease, and that is the commitment the global public health community has made. Please email us if you want to be a guest on the program. We encourage expert associates to join the discussion. Please call with your questions, stories, and comments. Let us explore this very important topic together for the understanding and improvement of healthcare in our community and society.
There are two types of vaccine that protect against polio: inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) and oral polio vaccine (OPV). IPV, used in the United States since 2000, is given as an injection in the leg or arm, depending on patient's age. Polio vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines. Most people should get polio vaccine when they are children. Children get 4 doses of IPV, at these ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and booster dose at 4-6 years. OPV has not been used in the United States since 2000 but is still used in many parts of the world.
A person is considered to be fully immunized if he or she has received a primary series of at least three doses of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), live oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV), or four doses of any combination of IPV and OPV. Until recently, the benefits of OPV use (i.e. intestinal immunity, secondary spread) outweighed the risk for vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) which occurred in one child out of every 2.4 million OPV doses distributed. To eliminate the risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP), as of January 1, 2000, OPV was no longer recommended for routine immunization in the United States. However, OPV continues to be used in the countries where polio is endemic or the risk of importation and transmission is high. OPV is recommended for global polio eradication activities in polio-endemic countries due to its advantages over IPV in providing intestinal immunity and providing secondary spread of the vaccine to unprotected contacts.

Questions and Answers
The long term consequences for polio survivors of the epidemic of the late 1940"s and 50's, is now termed "post polio syndrome" and late effect symptoms" may include: weakness of the limbs, muscle fatigue or pain. Bulbar symptoms may include: new problems with breathing, swallowing or speech. Current evidence suggests that exercises are often beneficial provided that the exercise program is designed for the individual following a thorough assessment and is supervised initially by knowledgeable health professionals.
Joan Headley, executive director of Post-Polio Health International (PHI)., and editor: Ventilator-Assisted Living,
Dr Barbara Sonies, Board Certified Specialist Swallowing, and former Chief of Speech Language Pathology Section and Oral Motor Function Section, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at NIH, has conducted research and published on neurologic, neuromotor and systemic conditions that impact on swallowing function.

Tonight we will be talking about Post Polio Syndrome. As of 1995 there are an estimated million or more Post Polio survivors with post polio syndrome and how the virus that struck in the late 1940s and early 1950s and disabled close to 35,000 people and is still effecting the lives of survivors Today!!!
This is our 1st show. We want to share Ideas and information on eradicating this disabling and we will also tackle and take on other disability topics with each new show!
Tonight we are going to be talking about post polio syndrome and the fact that it has never been eradicated! So get informed as we prepare to take you on a journey you wont soon forget!
Tonight (7.21.2013) I covered more stories in the news:
Polio vaccine had SV40 virus which causes cancer. Salk and Sabin put the SV40 virus in their vaccines to murder millions to cut down the population.
Some police depts are using drones to catch speeders.
The NSA has collected over 20 trillion phone calls and emails since 2001.
Google plans to implant a chip in your brain. I explained the End Game of Big Brother to implant a chip in your body so he can transmit a radio signal to it and have relay that signal directly into your brain. A person will believe his thoughts are his own and not being beamed into his mind from BB. Once BB gets a chip in everyone's body he will be able to have total control over them.
Before then BB can send a transmission to a cellphone, iPad, laptop or desktop computer which could then transmit a radio signal directly into your brain. Cellphones, iPads, laptops and desktops do not have transmitters now, but they will in the future.

This week's topics: Polio and the Dengue fever in Houston study
The connections are shocking to say the least. As implausable and it may seem there is considerable evidence that these seemingly unrelated issues are connected. The JFK assassination is the Rosetta Stone and the portal through which all forms of hidden tyranny can be seen. But only if you have the courage to enter into the American Heart of Darkness: http://www.amazon.com/American-Heart-Darkness-Transformation-Pathocracy/dp/1479793213/ref=sr_1_1_title_1_pap?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1404781283&sr=1-1&keywords=kirkconnell
Today we will explore these issues where many fear to tread. The next hour and a half could change the way you look at the United States of America. Are we really free or is it an illusion, or maybe a delusion? Let's take a look!
Vaccines are a touchy subject these days, the antivaxx crowd is vocal, they know how to use social media like a boss and SEO their sites into the top search results.
Are they right?
Two points of view on this subject, for and against.
Lets talk Vaccines and maybe find some common ground.
We are joined by @brazenqueer ..... we also invited Mrs Whalburg but she did not respond.

(2-4pm Mountain; 3-5pm Central, 4-6pm Eastern)
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy takes on a topic that has received more than its fair share of attention in recent months: vaccinations.
Dr. Hildy’s guests will be Attorney Keith Landrum, MD, whose main practice is representing Children who have been vaccination-injured, and returning guest Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
The concept of innoculation, or the administration of antigenic material (a vaccine) to stimulate an individual's immune system to develop adaptive immunity to a pathogen, has been part of medical care for hundreds of years. In 16th century India or China, a vaccine created to fight smallpox was born. As medical understanding and technology grew, so did the ability to fight certain diseases, and smallpox has been eradicated from the Earth since 1977.

Carnell Murrell on Centertainment Radio via Niacom Tonight @ 7pm CST!
Carnell Murrell first hit the faith-based music scene in Dallas, Texas, as a writer in 1991. Not long after, his group, The Carnell Murrell Singers, performed in Steve Martin’s Leap of Faith. As one third of the Texas triumvirate of great gospel music writers, Murrell, with Kirk Franklin and V. Michael McKay, exploded onto the gospel music scene. Together, they changed the sound of gospel music forever. Murrell was rewarded with nominations for both the Stellar and Soul Train Music Awards. Murrell’s inspired musical style has evoked change in the hearts of his audience and is the cornerstone of his unique prophetic ministry.
Though his story began like a tragic tale : being plagued with polio as a child, gang-banging as a teen, enduring his parent’s tragic divorce, struggling with a drug addiction, living with empty relationships, and all of the other ingredients needed for a great drama, Murrell understands that God has a purpose in every ounce of his past struggles. His hardships equipped him with the strength and vitality to move from a life full of despair into the open doors of God. Through a revival at Pastor Edward Calloway’s Lighthouse Church of God in Christ in Dallas, Texas, Murrell began on his destined path with Christ and gospel music.
Carnell steps onto our platform to share his tremendous testimony, ministry and new music, "My Testimony", "Separate Me" and "Is There Anything." You don't want to miss this broadcast!

Charlie Smith and Lora Duguay, openly and honestly share their stories of survival and living with post-polio syndrome.Two totally inspiring tails told with open hearts.Psychotherapist and LCSW , Ann McNeil, comments on their success.
In the news, the consequence of not getting children vaccinated against measles virus is headline. Do parents have the right to choose whether their children receive available childhood diseases vaccines? The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting 28 doses of 10 vaccines for kids aged newborn to six years old. All 50 states require vaccinations for children entering public schools but all issue medical exemptions, 48 states, excluding Mississippi and West Virginia, permit religious exemptions, and 19 states allow an exemption for philosophical reasons.
.Proponents say that vaccination is safe and one of the greatest health developments of the 20th century. They point out that illnesses, including rubella, diphtheria, smallpox, polio, and whooping cough, are now prevented by vaccination and millions of children’s lives are saved. Opponents say that children’s immune systems can deal with most infections naturally, and that injecting questionable vaccine ingredients into a child may cause side effects, including seizures, paralysis, and death. They contend that numerous studies prove that vaccines may trigger problems like autism, ADHD, and diabetes
From 1989 to July 1, 2014, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) made 3,645 compensation payments of over $2.7 billion in awards and $113.2 million to cover legal costs. About 30,000 cases of adverse reactions to vaccines have been reported annually to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since 1990Thimerosal, formaldehyde, and aluminum, are added to vaccines to improve stability. After public outcry, thimerosal was reduced to trace amounts in vaccines for children under 6 years old.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 732,000 American children were saved from death and 322 million cases of childhood illnesses were prevented between 1994 and 2014 due to vaccination.
