Is mass over-vaccination causing polio-like paralysis in children?

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) "The specific causes of this illness are still under investigation," says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the rise of a so-called "mystery" disease that currently available evidence suggests may be caused by vaccines.

The media is referring to it as polio-like paralysis, a condition marked by nearly all the same symptoms as actual polio. But nobody is willing to actually call it polio because, according to the official story, polio has already been eradicated by vaccines.

So what's causing polio-like paralysis? Nobody knows, apparently. But a growing number of children are developing it, much to the chagrin of health authorities who are struggling to come up with an explanation for why children who should have been protected by vaccines are unable to move their limbs or walk.

"Clinically, it is very, very similar to polio," admitted Keith Van Haren, a pediatric neurologist at Stanford's Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California, to National Geographic.

It typically emerges as a respiratory infection marked by cold symptoms. But polio-like paralysis can quickly impair muscle function and leave its victims unable to move their arms and legs. In worst-case scenarios, children end up wheelchair-bound much like polio victims from the not-too-distant past.

Polio vaccine causes polio-like illness that study confirms is "clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly"

Some media reports have surmised that polio-like paralysis is linked to the EV-D68 enterovirus that swept the nation last year, afflicting more than 1,100 people, mostly children, in 49 states and the District of Columbia. But since not every case of EV-D68 produced polio-like paralysis symptoms, it isn't very likely that the supposedly rare enterovirus is to blame.

Something perhaps more politically incorrect appears to be the cause: childhood vaccines. As you may recall, "polio-like paralysis" suddenly emerged in India after Bill Gates and his fellow vaccine sympathizers launched a polio vaccine campaign that left nearly 50,000 people afflicted with non-polio acute flaccid paralysis, or NPAFP.

A study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics in 2011 explains how this polio vaccine campaign, which was hailed as a success in "eradicating polio," actually spread NPAFP, which is "[c]linically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly," according to the study.

"[T]he incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received," reads the study, the full text of which is available here:

HPV, meningitis, flu vaccines and more all linked to polio-like paralysis

The tens of thousands of polio vaccine victims reported in India aren't an anomaly, as similar polio-like conditions have been observed following the administration of HPV vaccines, meningitis vaccines, flu vaccines and more right here in the U.S.

Multiple reports of young girls collapsing and becoming paralyzed after being injected with Merck's Gardasil vaccine, for instance, have been compiled by Judicial Watch from Food and Drug Administration adverse event reports. Reported symptoms include muscle weakness, inability to stand or walk, and loss of limb function.

Flu shots have also been implicated in causing polio-like paralysis, including in a young girl from Tampa, Florida, who reportedly suffered total incapacitation after being jabbed, the result of the vaccine triggering brain inflammation in the form of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or ADEM.

Remember the infamous "swine flu" vaccine for H1N1? A study published in the peer-reviewed journal The Lancet found that this particular vaccine can also trigger paralysis in the form of Guillain-Barre syndrome. And in Africa, a vaccine known as "MenAfriVac" was reported to have paralyzed at least 40 children in the small village of Gouro, in Chad.
