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.

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.

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.

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.

March 8, 2014 Todays Topics Leishmaniasis, Polio-like paralysis
I feel compelled to share my visions regarding my preidcitions for 2014. I made a prediction video on http://youtube.com/mia0899cs and I am starting to see some of them already occur. One was a major virus which I said would occur around March. I saw gurneys with people in the hallways of the ER as the entire hospital team was running around to help these people. The triage nurses had to send patients to other hospitals as there was no more room. Then I recently heard on Friday that there has been deaths due to a Mystery Virus in CA which presents like polio. It's first symptoms are just respiratory and then there is weakness in the limbs.
I also checked the status of H1N1 in PA from the CDC and there has been many deaths linked to this virus. Many people feel they are immuned from it as H1N1 is included in the flu vaccine. I will tell you what is going on with that. Are you actually safer with the flu vaccine?
I talked about Fema Zone 3 and the 15,000 Russian troops deployed to this area. President Obama actually said that it was due to an impending natural disaster as well as former Homeland Department Director, Janet Napolitano.
How do you know there is going to be a natural disaster? I also will share what others shared with me in their comments. One girl felt there is going to be a Tsunami occurring in the Atlantic Ocean.
I will also answer a psychic question that you have.
If you would like to contact me for a reading, please go to Kasamba and type in psychic name Mia0899cs. I will give you a detailed reading for $20.00. I normally charge $30.00.
