AIDS and Polio

AIDS and Polio

Since the start of the epidemic, around 78 million people have become infected with HIV and 39 million people have died of AIDS-related illnesses this dwarfs the number of polio cases.

Why are we comparing AIDS with Polio?  The reason we are comparing these diseases is because it looks like the AIDS epidemic started in Africa with a Polio vaccination campaign cultured in contaminated Chimpanzee tissue.   This may seem like an outrageous “conspiracy theory” but what about simian virus 40 (SV40)?  Some of the polio vaccine administered from 1955–1963 was contaminated with a virus, called simian virus 40 (SV40). The virus came from the monkey kidney cell cultures used to produce the vaccine. Most, but not all, of the contamination was in the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV).   It is thought that SV40 causes cancers.  Don’t believe me?   Do a Google search for scientific papers.   Some will argue that it is harmless (probably funded by pharma) but others find a link.   At the end of the day it should not be in there in the first place.

That reminds me of an old joke.  I have some good news and some bad news for you.  The good news is that you won’t get polio.  The bad news is that you will die from cancer.  The whole polio thing (which is up-held as a huge vaccine success story) just makes me feel queasy, especially as so many of the vaccineologists were Jewish eugenicists.   I think we need to visit the polio question again with a deep dive. Suffice to say that trusting a doctor with your life when he thinks you are a useless eater are one of things that make me go hmmm.

AIDS Timeline

There is a brilliant AIDS Timeline here and the movie which I have embedded below.

The use of primates in medical and scientific research brought about several historic changes in public health starting in the late 1950s. This timeline traces the path of primate-to-human pathogens. It examines the Special Virus Cancer Program which combined medical primatology and virology resulting in the global catastrophe of HIV/AIDS.
