A severe polio-like illness has afflicted up to 25 children in California, and doctors say that the outlook for these children looks grim. It has all the earmarks of polio: an enterovirus infection with a rapid onset and sudden paralysis of one or more limbs.

A leading California neurologist, Dr. Keith VanHaren said: "Although poliovirus has been eradicated from most of the globe, other viruses can also injure the spine, leading to a polio-like syndrome.”

Dr. VanHaren has been studying 5 of the afflicted children, all of whom were vaccinated against polio. In fact, these children were all “fully vaccinated” meaning that they had received all of the recommended childhood vaccines.

A cynic might say this is polio but they are not calling it polio because that would call into question the effectiveness of the polio vaccine.

But, I am going to try very hard not to be cynical. So instead I’ll say this:

Even if it is a different virus, what is the point of getting vaccinated if this kind of vulnerability remains after vaccination? If this kind of vulnerability and this magnitude of disaster can follow a course of childhood vaccinations, then something is wrong, and I mean terribly wrong.  

I wonder if those doctors realize that it’s no consolation to be told:

“Don’t worry; it wasn’t the polio virus that struck you. You were vaccinated against that. This was another virus. So yes, it is a catastrophe, and we’re very sorry for it. But, the important thing is not to question the theory of vaccination or its safety and effectiveness."

One thing I think you can count on: If most or even some of those children had not been vaccinated, the mainstream media would be screaming it to the high heavens. The fact that they haven’t tells you that these kids got stricken despite having been “protected”.

I don’t claim to know what exactly is going on here, but I have to wonder if vaccines are at least partly responsible for the mysterious outbreak.  And, it is reasonable to ask considering that the children were all vaccinated.  And it wouldn’t be the first time. There was a well known, widely recognized immunization catastrophe in 1955 in which a bad batch of polio vaccine was said to have caused 200 cases of polio. That's the official number, but the actual number of cases among vaccinated children was 1359. My source for that is Dr. Herbert Ratner, Child and Family vol 19 “Story of the Salk Vaccine.”  

I had only one child, a boy, and my wife and I did not vaccinate him- at all. And fortunately, it wasn’t terribly difficult for us to avoid it. I believe it is much harder today, or so I am told. The medical establishment, the schools, and the government are adamant about it. And of course, the number of vaccinations has grown immensely.

I received vaccines as a child, but it was the 1950s, and at least there were fewer. And I have had no vaccines since becoming health-conscious att the age of 19.

If I had a child today, I would not vaccinate him or her, and I would leave the country, if necessary, in order to avoid it. I hope that makes my position about this clear.I do not believe in vaccinations.
