    Polio Disease

    in Health

    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.

    Polio Vaccine

    in Radio

    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.

    NSA - Google chip in brain - drones - polio cancer

    in Politics

    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.

    Are AIDS, JFK, Jonestown, Polio Vaccines, and the Cancer Epidemic Connected?

    in Politics Progressive

    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!
