CDC admits it gave over 98M Americans polio shots containing cancer-causing Simian virus

The CDC has admitted that between 1955-1963 over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of a polio shot which was contaminated with a cancer-causing virus called Simian vacuolating virus 40 (SV40). The CDC quickly took down the page, along with Google, but the site was luckily cached and saved to symbolize this grand admission.

Comment: The polio vaccine: A worthless and carcinogenic threat to humanity
One of the largest and most devious medical scandals in the history of American medicine also concerns the polio vaccine. In an excellent history about the polio vaccine, Neil Miller shares the story of Dr. Bernice Eddy, a scientist at the NIH who in 1959 "discovered that the polio vaccines being administered throughout the world contained an infectious agent capable of causing cancer." As the story is told, her attempts to warn federal officials resulted in the removal of her laboratory and being demoted at the agency.[5] It was only later that one of the nation's most famous vaccine developers, Maurice Hilleman at Merck identified the agent as a cancer causing monkey virus, SV40, common in almost all rhesus monkeys being used to culture the polio virus for the vaccine. This contaminant virus was found in all samples of the Sabin oral polio vaccine tested. The virus was also being found in Salk's killed polio injectable vaccine as well. No one knows for certain how many American's received SV40 contaminated vaccines, but some estimates put the figure as high as 100 million people. That was greater than half the US population in 1963 when the vaccine was removed from the market.

Many Americans today, and even more around the world, continue to be threatened and suffer from the legacy of this lethal vaccine. Among some of the more alarming discoveries since the discovery of the SV40 in Salk's and Sabin's vaccines and its carcinogenic footprint in millions of Americans today are:
  • Loyola University Medical Center identified SV40 in 38% of bone cancer cases [6]
  • 58% of mesothelioma cases, a life threatening lung cancer, had SV40 present
  • A later analysis of a large national cancer database found mesotheliomas were 178% higher among those who received the polio vaccines
  • A study published in Cancer Research found SV40 in 23 percent of blood samples taken and 45% of semen samples studied, thereby confirming that the monkey virus can be sexually transmitted.[7]
  • Osteosarcomas are 10 times higher in states where the polio vaccine contaminated with SV40 was most used, particularly throughout the Northeastern states [8]
  • Two 1988 studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine discovered that SV40 can be passed on to infants whose mother's received the SV40 tainted vaccines. Those children later had a 13 times greater rate of brain tumors compared to children whose mothers did not receive the polio vaccines. This would also explain why these childrens' tumors contained the SV40 virus present, even though the children themselves did not receive the vaccine. [9]

Gluten sensitivity was ridiculed until "Celiac Disease" - but "Microwave Sickness" or "ElectroSensitivity" was discovered in the 1950s - and is STILL Ridiculed

Everybody now seems to know someone who has "gluten sensitivity" or Celiac Disease. "Gluten-free" products are big business now. Most chain grocery stores have large sections devoted to them.

This was not the case 20+ years ago when I was much younger and my immune system was shot. I was fortunate to have good health insurance. I went to a couple of doctors and eventually I was referred to an allergist. He had me endure horrible skin prick tests which revealed only that I had a light allergy to mold. I knew that already.

He recommended an Ear-Nose-Throat doctor who put me on steroids. That didn't help at all. After pleading with the ENT, he ran a camera up my nose and down into my throat. Nothing looked unusual.

Naturally I was upset. The ENT was kind enough to tell me about another one of his former patients who he had not been able to help. She later called him and said that another doctor had run different tests on her and discovered she had high levels of mercury. The ENT didn't validate the test or the diagnosis. However, he offered me the name and phone number of that doctor as long as I understood that it was NOT a referral. I accepted it and thanked him.

Many insomniacs remain conscious during sleep, which makes them think they haven't slept a wink

© Beliefnet
According to the American Sleep Association,1 up to 70 million Americans have a sleep disorder, nearly 40 percent unintentionally fall asleep during the day at least once a month and nearly 5 percent have nodded off while driving at least once. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder, with 10 percent of American adults struggling with chronic insomnia and 30 percent reporting occasional or short-term insomnia.

Interestingly, insomniacs will often insist they've not slept a wink all night, even though they've actually been sleeping. Researchers have now discovered there's a reason for this discrepancy in experience, and it has to do with consciousness. In a nutshell, even though the brain is sleeping, insomniacs remain consciously aware, and therefore believe they've not slept at all.


Sore muscles? It's okay to exercise anyway

sore muscle
If you've been active at all - gardening, lifting weights or trying a new workout routine - you've very likely experienced some type of muscle soreness, whether acute or delayed onset. While it is common to experience post-exercise muscle soreness when you have just resumed activity after a period of inactivity, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) can occur even during periods of consistent exercise.

Understanding why your muscles are sore and how you can both minimize and accommodate sore muscles will help you deal with muscle discomfort, tenderness and stiffness. You might be surprised to learn that sore muscles are not always a reason to skip your workout.

Why Exercise?

If you are still wondering why exercise is important, I'd like to remind you of a few of the reasons why your body needs physical activity on a regular basis. Because most of these benefits are temporary, not permanent, you will benefit most by getting active and staying active. In terms of benefits, exercise:

You don't need to be hacked - The human body is too complex for easy fixes

In 2016, I became the lucky parent of a newborn who slept horribly. Of course, this meant that my wife and I slept horribly, too. We rested in small snatches and were constantly irritable. We were a mess.

As a result, I became consumed with the idea of minimizing my need for sleep as much as possible. I had always required less sleep than my wife, but I thought that if I could just find some clever solution, some trick or tool, I might be cured of this time suck forever. I wanted to hack my need for sleep.

Eventually, I researched polyphasic sleep, a trend among the kind of people who quantify every aspect of their nutrient intake. Taken to its extreme, the practice promised the magic I was looking for: Simply sleep for 20 minutes or so every few hours, and eventually you'll only need two or three hours of sleep a day. Sleep would be conquered! In its place, productive bliss.


The brain suffers most from a poor diet

By now, the majority of us realize that having a poor diet and lifestyle is directly related to our overall health. In many ways, healthy eating has become somewhat trendy as people are starting to understand that they do indeed have control over their own health and are ready to take responsibility for their lives.

Unfortunately, there are still a large number of people who generally 'feel fine,' and thus don't realize the damage they actually may be causing to their bodies. Luckily, the human body is an amazing organism that, if given the right environment is perfectly capable of healing itself.

The Health & Wellness Show: Broccoli for Brains: Do you have to be mental to be a vegan?

Veganism, the strict practice of abstaining from the consumption and use of animal products, is on the rise. Reportedly, there are about 1.6 million vegans in the United States. The trendiness of being vegan dwarfs their actual representation in the population and a closer look at vegans tends to reveal something not quite right. Occasionally, a news story pops up where a vegan does something that most folks would find utterly bonkers such as wanting to feed dogs vegan diets, harassing meat-eating restaurant patrons, sitting idly by while a vegan baby dies of malnutrition, and most recently, shooting up people at a YouTube office.

We don't mean to cast aspersions, but are vegans nuts? Join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we explore this question and the very real underlying dietary reasons for why this may be so.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, where she speaks about the inappropriateness of vegetarian diets for pets.

Viral rescue: The germs' eye view of infection

She was only 22 years old, but her attending doctor in Texas was running out of options. The sticky substance coating the patient's lungs was par for the course with cystic fibrosis (CF); mucus is a signature of this heritable, progressive and incurable disease. So, too, is infection. But this time, a particularly nasty and stubborn bug had taken hold. The persistent presence of bacteria was putting an additional burden on the young woman's already overtaxed respiratory system, and chronic infection degrades lung function. The best antibiotics Western medicine had to offer had failed.

The Scottish physician Alexander Fleming discovered the first modern antibiotic, penicillin, in 1928. In 1945, Fleming issued a warning: should we misuse or overuse antibiotics, bacteria can and will resist. Today, resistance has become a scourge of modern medicine. Not only did we deploy antibiotics to save lives, but for commercial gain - pumping them into industrial farm animals, from cows and pigs to chicken and fish. Under pressure from this assault, bacterial populations did what they'd done for aeons: evolve or die. Those strains that could survive antibiotics are now winning the evolutionary race, and we are progressively running out of cures.


Getting only 6 hours of sleep is linked to mental health issues

It’s not worth skimping on sleep.
You might think you can get by on 5 or 6 hours' sleep a night, but people who get less than 7 hours are more likely to have mood or mental health problems.

A severe lack of sleep has been linked to mood disorders, depression, anxiety and Alzheimer's disease. But much less is known about the effects of skimping on a little sleep each night, missing the recommended amount by an hour or so.

According to the US National Sleep Foundation, most adults should get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night, while 6 hours may be okay for some people. Anything under 5 hours is deemed insufficient.

Vaccine fear mongering: WHO warns Miami at risk of yellow fever outbreak

yellow fever hazard
Miami is at risk of a deadly yellow fever outbreak because the disease could thrive there but the city has no checks on travelers arriving from endemic zones, a study to be published by the World Health Organization showed.

Yellow fever is spread by the same mosquito that causes Zika virus, which spread through the Americas after being detected in Brazil in 2015 and has been reported in southern Florida and southern Texas.

The U.S. Centres for Disease Control advises that yellow fever is found in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America, and is a very rare cause of illness in U.S. travelers.

But the study, "International travel and the urban spread of yellow fever", showed that almost 2.8 million people flew to the United States from endemic yellow fever areas in 2016.

Unlike some countries, the United States does not require travelers from such places to show proof of yellow fever vaccination.
