Vaccines and the U.S. Mystery of Acute Flaccid Myelitis
Since August 2, 2014 our Centers for Disease Control has received reports of 107 cases of ‘acute flaccid myelitis’ (AFM), a polio-like illness in children in 34 states. During the same interval there have been 1153 cases of respiratory illnesses associated with enterovirus D-68 (CIDRAP News 1/16/15. CDC update 1/15/15. Catherine Saint Louis, NY Times 1/13/15). AFM affects motor neurons in spinal cord gray matter, resulting in asymmetrical limb weakness; 34% of patients have cranial nerve motor dysfunction. Median age of patients is 7.6 years/range: 5 months-20 years (MMWR 63: 1243–January 9, 2015). So far only one child has fully recovered. EV-D68 is a suspected cause but, thus far, no viruses have been found in the spinal fluid of patients, and only a minority have had an antecedent illness associated with EV-D68. Case-control studies are planned to look for clues, but presently AFM is a mystery disease of unknown cause.
It is taboo to suggest a role for vaccines, but some old-timers remember “provocation poliomyelitis” or “provocation paralysis.” This is paralytic polio following intramuscular injections, typically with vaccines. PP was most convincingly documented by Austin Bradford Hill and J. Knowelden during the 1949 British polio epidemic when the risk of paralytic polio was increased 20-fold among children who had received the DPT injection (BMJ 2:1–July 1, 1950). Similar observations were made by Greenberg and colleagues in New York City; their literature review cited suspected cases as far back as 1921 (Am J Public Health 42:142–Feb.1952). I first became aware of PP 10 years ago while browsing through “Krugman’s Infectious Disease of Children” (page 128 of the 2004 edition).
AFM may result from a direct virus attack on the spinal cord, or by an immune attack triggered by a virus, or by something else. If a polio-like virus is circulating in the U.S., the possibility of its provocation by one or more vaccines has to be considered.

Smoke, Mirrors, and the “Disappearance” Of Polio
“The tendency of a mass vaccination program is to herd people. People are not cattle or sheep. They should not be herded. A mass vaccination program carries a built-in temptation to oversimplify the problem; to exaggerate the benefits; to minimize or completely ignore the hazards; to discourage or silence scholarly, thoughtful and cautious opposition; to create an urgency where none exists; to whip up an enthusiasm among citizens that can carry with it the seeds of impatience, if not intolerance; to extend the concept of the police power of the state in quarantine far beyond its proper limitation; to assume simplicity when there is actually great complexity; to continue to support a vaccine long after it has been discredited;… to ridicule honest and informed consent.[1]”
There is plenty of confusion on the topic of vaccination, especially amongst brainwashed doctors who trusted their medical schools.  Then the unsuspecting, trusting public trusts them…because the medical establishment must know best, right? And doctors are nice people, trying to do a good thing.  True.  I was once one of those brainwashed doctors who believed in the benevolence of the medical system and believed that all I learned was the best that modern times had to offer. It is blazingly clear to me now though, that much of what is taught in medical school is enormously limited. I now see that most doctors are little more than blind slave-technicians who follow the dogma they were taught and were rewarded for repeating, even as the truth unfolds in front of them dictating otherwise.
Unbeknownst to most doctors, the polio-vaccine history involves a massive public health service makeover during an era when a live, deadly strain of poliovirus infected the Salk polio vaccines, and paralyzed hundreds of children and their contacts.  These were the vaccines that were supposedly responsible for the decline in polio from 1955 to 1961! But there is a more sinister reason for the “decline” in polio during those years; in 1955, a very creative re-definition of poliovirus infections was invented, to “cover” the fact that many cases of ”polio” paralysis had no poliovirus in their systems at all. While this protected the reputation of the Salk vaccine, it muddied the waters of history in a big way.
Even during the peak epidemics, unifactorial poliovirus infection, resulting in long-term paralysis, was a low-incidence disease[2] that was falsely represented as a rampant and violent crippler by Basil O’Connor’s “March Of Dimes” advertising campaigns. At the same time as Basil O’Connor was pulling in 45 million dollars a year to fund the Salk vaccine development, scientists started to realize that other viruses like Coxsackie, echo and enteroviruses, could also cause polio.  They also discussed the fact that lead, arsenic, DDT, and other commonly-used neurotoxins, could identically mimic the lesions of polio. During the great epidemics in the United States, the pathology called polio was reversed by alternative medical doctors who attested to great success, using detoxification procedures available at the time – yet they were categorically ignored[3].
Now it is admitted in the medical literature that other viruses can cause polio, yet few people on the street have any idea.

Limited online access to 40 participants! We encourage users to gather in small groups and review the outline and links below prior to meeting so we can teach each other and discover ways to fix this very BROKEN law in a state that is forcing vaccines on our children in order to get childcare and an education!  We know adult mandates are coming.

Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality.

Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?

Vaccinations have been used as an essential toolin the fight against infectious diseases, and succeeded in improving public health.
However, adverse effects, including autoimmune conditions may occur following vaccinations (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced
by adjuvants–ASIA syndrome). It has been postulated that autoimmunity could be triggered or enhanced by the vaccine immunogen contents,
as well as by adjuvants, which are used to increase the immune reaction to the immunogen. Fortunately, vaccination-related ASIA is uncommon.
Yet, by defining individuals at risk we may further limit the number of individuals developing post-vaccination ASIA.
In this perspective we defined four groups of individuals who might be susceptible to develop vaccination-induced ASIA: patients with prior
post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena, patients with a medical history of autoimmunity, patients with a history of allergic reactions,
and individuals who are prone to develop autoimmunity (having a family history of autoimmune diseases; presence of autoantibodies; carrying
certain genetic profiles, etc.).© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Epidemiologic Tenets of Causality
Epidemiology is the study of the causes of disease. Continually advancing for hundreds of years, it is the scientific discipline which focuses on the identification of cause and effect. Traditionally, it has been associated with the identification of the cause of disease (e.g. the identification of polluted water sources as the cause of gastrointestinal illness in London).  It is also associated with the identification of an effective treatment for a disease (e.g. the role of citrus fruit ingestion in the prevention of scurvy).
Over the course of study, epidemiologists have postulated a series of tenets or conditions that must be in place in order for the causative relationship to be identified. These tenets are
Through the use of research timing and research directionality, scientists work to demonstrate these seven tenets, and thereby build a strong causative argument.
