People like to shake their heads at the eccentricities of those of us who eschew vaccines for ourselves and our families, but a recent document that was published (then immediately removed from the website) by the CDC gives even more credibility to our claims of “You just don’t know what’s in that stuff.”
A polio vaccine injection that was given to people between 1955-1963 contained a live cancer virus. Here is a cached copy of the CDC document.
Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine Fact Sheet
- SV40 is a virus found in some species of monkey.
- SV40 was discovered in 1960. Soon afterward, the virus was found in polio vaccine.
- More than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine from 1955 to 1963 when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 10–30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of vaccine.
- SV40 virus has been found in certain types of cancer in humans, but it has not been determined that SV40 causes these cancers.
- The majority of scientific evidence suggests that SV40-contaminated vaccine did not cause cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.
- Polio vaccines being used today do not contain SV40. All of the current evidence indicates that polio vaccines have been free of SV40 since 1963.
- In the 1950s, rhesus monkey kidney cells, which contain SV40 if the animal is infected, were used in preparing polio vaccines. Because SV40 was not discovered until 1960, no one was aware in the 1950s that polio vaccine could be contaminated.
- SV40 was found in the injected form of the polio vaccine (IPV), not the kind given by mouth (OPV).
- Not all doses of IPV were contaminated. It has been estimated that 10–30 million people actually received a vaccine that contained SV40.
- Some evidence suggests that receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine may increase risk of cancer. However, the majority of studies done in the U.S. and Europe which compare persons who received SV40-contaminated polio vaccine with those who did not have shown no causal relationship between receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine and cancer.

So….more than 50 years after the fact, the CDC quietly admits that this vaccine could have kept folks from getting polio but may have given them cancer instead??????????????
A peer reviewed paper from the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center at Loyola University confirms this. According to the research, the procedure used to inactivate the virus was not effective.
We determined that the procedure used by this manufacturer to inactivate SV40 in oral poliovirus vaccine seed stocks based on heat inactivation in the presence of MgCl2 did not completely inactivate SV40. These SV40-contaminated vaccines were produced from early 1960s to about 1978 and were used throughout the world. Our findings underscore the potential risks of using primary monkey cells for preparing poliovirus vaccines, because of the possible contamination with SV40 or other monkey viruses, and emphasize the importance of using well-characterized cell substrates that are free from adventitious agents.
Sarah, the Healthy Home Economist, broke the story yesterday. She wrote:
This story is not new – many of of us who thoroughly researched the vaccination issue before choosing whether or not to immunize were already aware of this fact years ago.
I became aware of the tainted polio vaccines from 1955-1963 in the late 1990′s and it was one of the primary motivators for me to choose a “no shots, no way” approach for my children.
What is new is that the CDC is finally admitting it.
What took you so long CDC? Many of the folks vaccinated with the tainted polio stock are already dead from cancer with many more getting diagnosed each and every day! (source)
Much like today, parents then were terrified and guilted into providing their child with the polio vaccine. By doing so, they may have saved that child from polio but sentenced them to a different early death from cancer. Up to 30 million people may have been affected by this vaccine that was forced upon them by the government. And the thing is, no amount of parental research can protect a child from something like this – if a substance is injected into your child, you have to take it on faith as to the ingredients in that hypodermic needle. Do you really trust the government and Big Pharma with your child’s life?
The most frightening part of all is that in many parts of the world, this vaccine was mandatory. Much like the people forced to take a flu shot to retain their jobs, children forced to take a series of vaccinations to attend school, or a host of other “health benefits” being foisted upon us, a deadly virus was injected into millions of kids around the world, whether they wanted it or not. Let this be a lesson as you listen to the pediatrician tell you about the mandatory shots they want to give to your child – the HPV, the childhood immunization series, and the annual flu shot. Don’t forget those shots that are rushed to market in the face of some horrible epidemic. Anything could be in those little vials and 50 years down the road, your children might discover that they too were poisoned, whether through a tragic laboratory mistake, a deliberate depopulation maneuver, or even a twisted human experiment.
And who is being held accountable for this? Who is going to jail for committing murder on such a massive scale? Who is being charged with negligence for allowing this to happen? Who is being taken to task for making this toxic vaccine mandatory?
Oh…as usual….no one.
