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.
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.

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.

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!
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!
This week's topics: Polio and the Dengue fever in Houston study
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.

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.
Vaccines are even more dangerous than we first thought. A 1992 study published in The American Journal of Epidemiology shows that children die at a rate 8 times greater than normal within three days after getting a DPT vaccination.
In the New England Journal of Medicine July 1994 issue a study found that over 80% of children, under 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.
In 1977 Dr Jonas Salk (inventor of the Salk polio vaccine) testified with other scientists that 87% of the polio cases which occurred in the US since 1970 were the by-product of the polio vaccine. The Sabin oral polio vaccine (OPV) is the only known cause of polio in the US today. Tune in for much more Wednesday at 7:PM EST
Joan Headley visits Dancing On Our Disabilities.
Joan comes to the table with a wealth of information that can answer many doubts and questions of polio survivors and their families. Post-Polio Health International's mission is to enhance the lives and independence of polio survivors and home ventilator users through education, advocacy, research and networking.
Join Vaccine Vaccine Rights attorney Alan Phillips (Dr. Mayer Eisenstein will be back next week!) as he discusses some current vaccine news articles available at the Pandemic Response Project's News Page (11 gallons of live polio virus leaked into city water, China's measles outbreaks with 99% vaccination rate, first volunteer received Ebola vaccine in safety trial, etc.); and, information about the CDC's and DHHS's plan to vaccinate all U.S. employees annually with the influenza vaccine--and how you can legally refuse influenza and other vaccines--when they are required at your place of employment--under state and federal laws.
