[Follow the money trail. Some of the most profitable companies in the world are pharmaceutical companies. There are reasons for that.]

"The modern healthcare system, like any powerful corporation, is designed to favor those who acquiesce with their rules and regulations; likewise to weed out and alienate those who do not fall into line with the rest of the “herd." The entire cesspool of Western Allopathic Medicine, fueled by a powerful medical mafia monopoly, dominates our lives through an endless barrage of mainstream media propaganda, a giant social engineering model, run by select committees of overpaid Technocratic Elites – void of any decent moral code of ethics, adherence to the Hippocratic oath or underlying sense of altruism toward humanity." Joel Lord, Vaccine Resistance Movement,

IPOL is the Tradename for the polio vaccine manufactured by Connaught Laboratories. The IPOL polio vaccine ingredients include, may not be a complete list), 3 types of polio viruses, neomycin, streptomycin, and polymyxin B, formaldehyde, and 2-phenoxyethanol, and a continuous line of monkey kidney cells. Many of the vaccine ingredients are toxic and potentially harmful. I know Polio is a horrible disease, but you may be interested in a few facts listed here.

Polio is a horrible and often crippling disease, but if you look at the history of Polio you may see something very interesting. Polio was rare until the advent and widespread use of vaccines. Like Autism, the incidence of Polio increased following the increase of vaccines.

Two things are quite possible here:

1. Polio used the injection of the vaccine to enter the body and do its dirty deeds

2. The other and most likely scenario is that the vaccines include ingredients that weaken the immune system leaving it susceptible to an illness that otherwise would not be able to successfully invade the body much like HIB.

[One theory suggests that Polio affects children more because of their undeveloped immune system and higher toxicity due to their small body mass. For example, for a single vaccine shot a child's body will have a higher ppm (parts per million) concentration of toxic ingredients in vaccine than an adult, since an adult has a higher body mass. This concentration theory has also been suggested for child Autism.]

"A single vaccine given to a six-pound newborn is the equivalent of giving a 180-pound adult 30 vaccinations on the same day." --Dr. Boyd Haley, Toxicologist, retired Professor of Chemistry, University of Kentucky

Either way the question remains, have we traded off diseases that were typically harmless except in a few cases, for diseases that are crippling for life? Many diseases like Measles, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Smallpox and many others were on the decline and nearly extinct in America thanks to improved sanitation and antibacterial supplies. You can read my article on the History of Polio and see the correlation of polio outbreaks with the advent of vaccine use complete with resources. Read it here.Viral Particles: Three types of polio viruses are the typical risk. Over the last 2-3 decades the ONLY cases of Polio have been vaccine induced. Therefore the risk is ever present, even though they make them safer does not give me a lot of comfort.

The Antibiotics Neomycin, Streptomycin, and Polymyxin B are powerful antibiotics and all fall under the potential of allergic reaction. All three of these have the potential of Ototoxicity and may cause hearing impairment and balance problems. In rare cases all 3 have the potential in rare cases of Nephrotoxicity and can cause kidney damage. Other side effects may include rash, hives, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, (swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue), decreased urination, dizziness, headache, hearing loss, hives, lightheadedness, loss of balance, muscle weakness, nausea, numbness or tingling, ringing or roaring in the ears, skin rash or itching, vaginal irritation or discharge, and vomiting

Chemicals as part of the IPOL Polio vaccine ingredients

The Chemical Formaldehyde is a highly toxic chemical. It is a Neurotoxin, suspected carcinogen and has been linked to Leukemia. Formaldehyde also weakens the immune system, causes neurological damage, genetic damage, metabolic acidosis, circulatory shock, respiratory insufficiency and acute renal failure, as well as being a sensitizer. Formaldehyde gas in concentrations as low as 1 part per million can be toxic and was the root of the issues with the FEMA trailers in New Orleans. You can reference my article on Formaldehyde here.

The chemical 2-phenoxyethanol is toxic and disables the bodies first line of defense. It has been used in some vaccines to replace Thimerasol. Side effects include shock, convulsions, kidney failure, cardiac failure and death. It can also cause Dermatitis and Eczema around the injection site. You can read my whole article on 2-phenoxyethanol here.

The IPOL polio vaccine ingredients also include the animal by products, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells. During the early years of the polio vaccine, the head of research discovered a cancer causing monkey virus known as SV40. It was estimated that this virus may have been in as many as 98 million vaccinations that had been given to people thus potentially killing more people than Polio, but the cancer would follow years later. Once it was discovered, it was known that this virus was in vaccines that had not yet been distributed, but even with this knowledge before hand, there were no recalls on the vaccines. This is part of the politics of vaccines that really scares me is the fact that many times there have been dangerous lots or other known complications of a particular vaccine but the money invested in the vaccines appears to be more important and protected by our government than the lives of us and our children.

Side effects of the IPOL vaccine include: Crying, loss of appetite, drowsiness; fever, pain, redness, tenderness, or a raised area at the injection site, fussiness, spitting up feedings, tiredness, and vomiting, and possible serious allergic reactions including rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, and paralysis.

Polio vaccine causes Polio symptoms

Polio Vaccines Now The #1 Cause of Polio Paralysis

The Polio Global Eradication Initiative (PGEI), founded in 1988 by the World Health Organization, Rotary International, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, holds up India as a prime example of its success at eradicating polio, stating on its website (Jan. 11 2012) that "India has made unprecedented progress against polio in the last two years and on 13 January, 2012, India will reach a major milestone - a 12-month period without any case of polio being recorded."

This report, however, is highly misleading, as an estimated 100-180 Indian children are diagnosed with vaccine-associated polio paralysis (VAPP) each year. In fact, the clinical presentation of the disease, including paralysis, caused by VAPP is indistinguishable from that caused by wild polioviruses, making the PGEI's pronouncements all the more suspect.1

According to the Polio Global Eradication Initiative's own statistics2 there were 42 cases of wild-type polio (WPV) reported in India in 2010, indicating that vaccine-induced cases of polio paralysis (100-180 annually) outnumber wild-type cases by a factor of 3-4. Even if we put aside the important question of whether or not the PGEI is accurately differentiating between wild and vaccine-associated polio cases in their statistics, we still must ask ourselves: should not the real-world effects of immunization, both good and bad, be included in PGEI's measurement of success?

For the dozens of Indian children who develop vaccine-induced paralysis every year, the PGEI's recent declaration of India as nearing "polio free" status, is not only disingenuous, but could be considered an attempt to minimize their obvious liability in having transformed polio from a natural disease vector into a manmade (iatrogenic) one.

Polio vaccine contained cancer-causing virus

"The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has once again been caught removing pertinent but indicting information about vaccines from its website. This time it involves the infamous polio vaccine, up to 98 million doses of which have been exposed as containing a cancer-causing virus that is now believed to be responsible for causing millions of cancers in America, according to the CDC...The information was posted on an official CDC fact sheet entitled Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine, which has since been removed from the CDC's website. Fortunately, was able to archive the damning page before the CDC ultimately removed it, presumably because SV40 has been receiving considerable attention lately due to its connection to causing cancer." --Mike Adams,

Seasonal Flu

The seasonal flu is our body's natural way of adjusting to a change in temperature. Our body, especially our immune system, is preparing itself for this change by informing us through a series of flu symptoms. A flu vaccine suppresses these symptoms and natural process. A person with a strong immune system (built from nutrients from the foods we eat) is less susceptible to the flu. A person with a weak immune system is prone to catching the flu. The irony is that a flu vaccine further weakens the immune system, therefore worsening the flu.

"According to the CDC, the majority of flu vaccines contain thimerosal. Some flu vaccines contain as much as 25 mcg of mercury per dose. This means that it may contain more than 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit for mercury." --Dr. Joseph Mercola

Smallpox vaccination then and now

Original smallpox vaccine ingredient: cowpox pus
(Edward Jenner didn't patent it and gave it away)

Modern pharmaceutical industry smallpox vaccine ingredients: mercury, formaldehyde, beta-propioIactone, neomycin sulfat, polymyxin, potassium chloride, and other toxins.

Modern smallpox vaccine ingredients are known toxins in high concentration and are patentable.

Alternative look at Smallpox

Smallpox Vaccine: Origins of Vaccine Madness
Jennifer Craig, BSN, MA, Ph.D

Somewhere in medical education the idea that smallpox was eradicated by a vaccine took hold in students’ heads and has remained there ever since. Would that more accurate information endure with such persistence? Even physicians who have explored vaccination continue to believe that the injection of pus from a cowpox sore prevented smallpox. For example, Cave and Mitchell, in What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children’s Vaccinations, on page 10, say, ‘A more scientific approach was used in the late eighteenth century when Edward Jenner, who discovered that inoculating people with the animal disease cowpox made people immune to the deadly human disease smallpox. This was an interesting concept, and fortunately for Jenner it helped save lives …”1 Did they ever ask themselves how the inoculation of pus from a diseased animal could possibly prevent, rather than create, a disease in humans? This article explores the history of smallpox vaccination

and presents evidence that vaccinating people with cowpox pus did not prevent smallpox, did not save lives and did not eradicate smallpox. Instead it caused deaths and began a pernicious multi-billion dollar vaccine industry.


The word ‘pox’ is the plural form of ‘pocke’ (pocke meaning sac). Smallpox leaves small indentations, pocks, all over the body but particularly over the face. The name ‘smallpox”, which first occurs in Holinshead’s Chronicles from 1571, was given to this disease to distinguish it from syphilis, the ‘great pox’.

Michael Nightingale, a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, writes: “It is a matter of pure speculation as to when the condition first appeared, but it is unlikely to have done so prior to man’s establishment of large townships coupled with poor nutrition, overcrowding, lack of sanitation and inadequate hygiene. Keeping people, such as slaves and prisoners, in disgusting and sub-human conditions may have been the necessary ingredient for the establishment of the virus but there is virtually no doubt that the aforementioned adverse conditions were responsible for the epidemics of smallpox as well as for its endemic nature in certain areas until its recent demise. It was recorded in Chinese history and was certainly prevalent in the west by the sixteenth century.”2

Smallpox was a deadly disease though not quite as deadly as one medical historian, Haggard, suggests.3 He writes, “Queen Mary II of England died of smallpox in 1694. In the century following her death 60 million persons in Europe died of smallpox.” The population of Europe was 130 million in 1762 and 175 million in 1800. The death rate from smallpox in that period was 18.5%. If 60 million deaths occurred with an 18.5% death rate then it would require 319,148,936 cases of smallpox in Europe and that would be 144,148,936 more cases of smallpox than there were people living in Europe at the close of the 18th century.4


The idea of putting pus into a cut was first introduced to the West by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (1689 “” 1762), daughter of the Marquess of Dorchester, a leading Whig politician, and wife of the British envoy to Turkey. She and her husband spent some time there and on her return in 1718 she was agog with excitement that she could introduce to England a cure for smallpox, a disease she had suffered from when she was nineteen. She writes, “People send to one another to know if any of their family has a mind to have the smallpox; they make parties for this purpose. When they are met, an old woman comes with a nutshell of the matter of the best sort of smallpox and asks what veins you please to have opened. (Matter means discharge or pus.)

“The old woman rips open the vein that you offer her with a large needle and puts into the vein as much venom as can lie upon the head of her needle and after binds up the little wound with a hollow bit of shell. In this manner she opens four or five veins.
“They are well for eight days. Then the fever seizes them and they keep their beds two days “” seldom three. They have rarely more than twenty or thirty pustules on their face, which leave no mark, and then they are as well as before their inoculation.”5

Barry, Iris. Portrait of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Ernest Menn Ltd. 1928
At the time, Lady Mary’s news of the technique of putting pus into a wound, a technique known as inoculation, caused less comment than the fact that she had brought home a mummy, or that she had dined with the Sultana and been bored or had visited the beautiful Fatima, wife of the powerful Deputy to the Vizier.

Princess Caroline, daughter-in-law of George I and later queen of England, was impressed by Lady Mary’s assertions, and was determined to test inoculation. In the summer of 1721 six condemned prisoners in Newgate were allowed to volunteer for the operation, with freedom as their reward. Five of the six developed a mild attack of smallpox and the sixth, who had previously had smallpox, showed no change. Encouraged, the Princess had a group of orphans inoculated. While the criminals were pardoned as a reward for their participation, the orphans received the satisfaction of making a contribution to science and were rewarded, in some instances, with blindness, lameness and death.6

After grave consideration and more than a few protestations of horror, the Royal children and Lady Mary’s daughter were inoculated. Just as royalty and the famous set the fashion today so they did in the 1700s and the idea of inoculation spread among the upper classes. Then two people died: a young servant in a Lord’s household and the small son of the Earl of Sutherland.7 The church deplored the intervention in God’s will, physicians deplored the influence of “ignorant women” and the public deplored the spread of the disease.

Inoculation was not, of course, a cure or preventative for smallpox as it usually induced an active case of the disease. Unfortunately, there are no records of how many people were inoculated, how many developed smallpox as a result, or how many did not. The trouble was that inoculated people were fully contagious during their brief illness so that they could, and did, start epidemics. Dr. Lettsom, writing in 1806, tells us that whereas smallpox deaths for 42 years before inoculation were 72 per thousand, there were 89 per thousand in the 42 years after its introduction.8 Furthermore, conscientious physicians could see the connection between inoculation and the increased incidence of worse diseases than smallpox, such as syphilis, tuberculosis and erysipelas.

Councillor Asbury, Chairman of Sheffield’s Health Committee, wrote in 1927, “It has been calculated that from 1721 to 1758 smallpox inoculation was responsible for the deaths of no less than 22,700 persons from smallpox in London alone. It is not therefore surprising that when Jenner proposed that smallpox inoculation should be given up and cowpox inoculation substituted for it “” thus covering the retreat of the (medical) profession from an untenable position, his ideas were accepted by all whose interests were not conspicuously bound up with the older form of treatment.” 9

Eventually an Act of Parliament was passed in 1840 forbidding the practice of inoculation, largely because, as Asbury mentions, Edward Jenner offered an alternative.

Edward Jenner

Edward Jenner was born in 1749 and died in 1823.10 The son of a prosperous family in the Church who owned a small, landed estate, Jenner grew up in the Gloucestershire countryside where he enjoyed the study of natural history. In 1788 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society, not because of his experiments with cowpox, as some writers would have us believe, but because of a paper he wrote, “The Natural History of the Cuckoo.”

At 14 years old he was apprenticed to an apothecary and surgeon. Precursors of today’s pharmacists were apothecaries, who themselves started as wholesale merchants and spice importers. In Jenner’s time surgeons were nothing like modern surgeons. The United Company of Barber-Surgeons had been formed in 1540 and its members were legally restricted to setting bones, healing outward wounds with topical preparations, carrying out bleeding and undertaking the limited operations in this pre-anaesthetic era, such as amputations and removal of bladder stones.11 It is in recognition of the past association with barbers that British Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons relinquish the title of ‘Doctor’ for that of ‘Mister’.

Jenner set up practice as a surgeon in Berkeley but despite descriptions of him as a country physician he did not earn the title of “doctor”. Walter Hadwen, JP, MD, LRCP, MRCS, LSA., said during an address in 1896, of which a verbatim report exists, “Now this man Jenner had never passed a medical examination in his life. He belonged to the good old times when George III was King, when medical examinations were not compulsory. Jenner looked upon the whole thing as a superfluity ” It was not until twenty years after he was in practice that he thought it advisable to get a few letters after his name. Consequently he communicated with a Scotch university and obtained the degree of Doctor of Medicine for the sum of ?15 and nothing more.”12

Living in rural Gloucestershire, Jenner heard about the local superstition that those who contracted cowpox did not get smallpox. How the superstition arose is dealt with at length by Dr. Charles Creighton in Jenner and Vaccination: a Strange Chapter of Medical History, published in 1889 and recently republished.13 In this book Creighton says, “The single bond connecting cowpox with smallpox was the occurrence of the word “pox” in each name; it was a case of the river in Macedon and the river in Monmouth. The jingle of the names had the effect that it often has upon credulous people, whose acquaintance with any matter is more verbal than real.” Creighton also goes on to observe: “To a pathologist or epidemiologist, it is as truly nonsense to speak of cowpox becoming smallpox as it is legitimate nonsense to prove that a horse-chest¬nut is a chestnut horse. It was reserved for Edward Jenner to take up that surprising legend, and make it scientifically passable, despite the impatience and ridicule which his prosaic medical neighbours in the cowpox districts had met it with.”

Cowpox is a disease that occurs on the teats of cows only when they are in milk. The causative virus is said to be orthopox vaccinia; it results in an ugly chancre; it is not infectious; it is, of course, found only in female animals. People who milked infected animals developed pustules on their hands, which in turn, led to swollen glands and general malaise.

Smallpox, on the other hand, is not limited to the female sex nor to one portion of the body. The causative virus is said to be orthopox variola; it is found only in humans; it is highly infectious.14

There is no correspondence between cowpox and smallpox as legitimate scientists of Jenner’s day were well aware. Nevertheless, based on the superstition of dairymaids, on May 14, 1796, Jenner conducted the famous experiment that is the foundation of the practice of vaccination. If a rational person wanted to test the theory that a previous dose of cowpox prevented smallpox, he would surely have conducted a survey. But Jenner proceeded to experiment on an eight-year old boy, James Phipps by inserting cowpox pus from a dairymaid, Sarah Nelmes, into incisions in his arm.
