'In a superior example of the circular “logic” of mainstream medicine, Rotary International has announced that a recent polio outbreak in Syria, caused by the polio vaccine itself, could have been averted if more kids had been vaccinated. That’s right: The polio vaccine is giving kids polio, so we should be sure to vaccinate more kids as quickly as possible. Wait, what?
There are two types of polioviruses: Vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) and wild polioviruses (WPVs). While WPVs have been all but eradicated worldwide, VDPVs keep popping up all over the place.
Caused by the weakened form of the live poliovirus contained in the polio vaccine, VDPVs develop after the vaccine is ingested, replicates in the vaccinated child’s gut, and is then excreted. In poor areas like Syria, where war has resulted in compromised sanitation measures, the virus can then spread to other vulnerable children. As it circulates, the virus begins to mutate, and can eventually develop into a strain strong enough to cause paralysis.
Rotary insists that if more children are vaccinated, then when the vaccine is excreted and starts spreading, it won’t be able to infect other children. While this appears logical on the surface, surely the more intelligent solution is to just not vaccinate any kids at all? Since two of the three known strains of WPVs have already been exterminated, and naturally occurring cases of WPV are few and far between, it seems illogical to insist on vaccinating hundreds of thousands of children – 355,000 little kids in Syria alone – in an attempt to prevent a disease that is now primarily only caused by the vaccine itself!
