You Shouldn't Trust The Panic On Polio
It boils down to a complex relationship involving Coca-Cola and the failures of immunisation
In 2020, Coca-Cola’s CEO, James Quincey, sat comfortably on Pfizer’s Board of Directors. Coca-Cola had spent a whopping $5,830,000 on lobbying the US government in 2020, using 24 dedicated lobbyists. They weren’t alone.
Pfizer spent $10,870,000, ranking as the 25th largest lobbyist out of 5,561 companies, and had also sent money both to Joe Biden $381,930 and Donald Trump ($119,768).
In contrast, both Pfizer and Coca-Cola’s spending had even dwarfed Johnson & Johnson, who had “only” spent $5,570,000 (ranking 73rd), sending Joe Biden $370,001 and Donald Trump $106,718. AstraZeneca had spent $3,470,000 (ranking 191), sending Joe Biden $102,374 and Donald Trump $39,257. Moderna lobbied a “mere” $280,000. Coca-Cola’s lobbying is larger than most pharmaceutical firms.
Coca-Cola is the same company that brings you unhealthy sugary drinks, causing obesity and diabetes. Insulin is one such tool used for symptom management of people with diabetes. In 2008 Pfizer spent $2.8 billion trying to develop ‘inhaled insulin’, then in 2011, formed a $200 million deal with an Insulin manufacturer in India, with the intention of re-selling the insulin under Pfizer’s own brand.
In April 2016, it was written in a Insulin patent profile sheet that the insulin patents were owned by Eli Lilly, Sanofi, Novo Nordisk, and Pfizer. The other overseas companies were Biocon, who had already been bought out by Pfizer, and seperately Wockhardt in India; Tonghua Dongbao and Zhuhai United Laboratories in China.
So it is pretty clear that Pfizer have strong skin in the Insulin production game. What better ally to have than one that helps produce diabetes in kids with sugary drinks? It’d be like if a Big Tobacco firm had partnered with a company that sells overpriced cancer drugs, disgusting in every sense of the word.
But Why Coca-Cola?
But, why am I talking about Coca-Cola’s inordinate spending, direct ties to Pfizer, and Pfizer’s cozy conflict-of-interest? Well, it turns out Coca-Cola made another “friendship”, with none other than…
Published by British peer-reviewed medical journal, the BMJ, in 2019, a study noted that the CDC had very cozy ties with Coca-Cola over, of all things, obesity.
The study highlighted an alarming media report by Milbank Quarterly, who had sent several FOIA requests to the CDC in 2016/2017. The FOIA’d emails that they had received, Milbank Quarterly had remarked, highlighted Coca-Cola were trying to:
[…] to gain and expand access, to lobby, and to shift attention and blame away from sugar-sweetened beverages.
This wasn’t some whimsical fear, either. Besides the $5,830,000 Coca-Cola spent lobbying US government (that means all portions, not just Congress), Cambridge University had reported on 5 FOIA requests by another organisation, U.S. Right to Know, a citizens transparency advocacy group, who had filed FOIAs over the International Life Sciences Institute involvement with the CDC.
Who are “International Life Sciences Institute” (ILSI)? As U.S. Right to Know highlights, they are a ‘sugar advocacy’ organisation started by Coca-Cola, founded in 1978 by the former senior vice president at Coca-Cola, Alex Malaspina, who worked for Coke from 1969-2001, meaning it spent at least 23 years under direct Coke control.
Another Coca-Cola stooge, Michael Ernest Knowles, Coca-Cola’s Vice President of global scientific and regulatory affairs from 2008-2013, became president of ILSI from 2009-2011. Retired Coca-Cola “chief health and science officer” Rhona Applebaum became the president of ILSI in 2015, who quit…
As The BMJ announced back in June 2019, to not much fanfare, in a study of thousands of documents, the ILSI were shown to clearly be a front for food and drink industry lobbyists, including Coca-Cola.
As the Cambridge article notes, however, they also actively interfered with CDC and WHO decision making, where Alex Malaspina, the former senior vice president at Coca-Cola, who founded ILSI, directly asked Dr Barbara Bowman, the then CDC’s Direct of the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, demanding ‘something must be done’:
Any ideas how we can have a conversation with WHO? Now, they do not want to work with industry. Who finds all the new drugs. Not WHO, but industry. She is influenced by the Chinese Govt and is against US. Something Must be done [SIC]
The association to this was so problematic for Coca-Cola that they reportedly left ILSI’s membership in 2021. This doesn’t mean Coca-Cola has lost sway, given they built the foundations, just that they’re trying to distance themselves from the obvious front company to make them seem more impartial.
This is Coca-Cola’s advocacy group, International Life Sciences Institute, evidenced exerting direct influence over the CDC. The same Coca-Cola that is directly in-bed with vaccine manufacturer Pfizer.
Coca-Cola who, not only lobbied more money than most pharmaceutical comapnies, but are also in bed with the CDC who are screaming - not about active human cases - but about wastewater containing polio. Waste that is exposed, contaminated, from any number of sources - including animals. Wild rats aren’t immunised, you know.
Pfizer’s History Haunts
Pfizer has direct skin in this game. Back in the 1950s, they entered into a manufacturing agreement with Sabin to produce the polio vaccine. It was Sabin - and thus Pfizer’s - that grew to dominance, even prompting the WHO to boldly declare in 1994 that the polio had been eradicated in the ‘western hemisphere’ (emphasis added):
Sabin’s live-virus, oral polio vaccine (administered in drops or on a sugar cube) soon replaced Salk’s killed-virus, injectable vaccine in many parts of the world. In 1994 the WHO declared that naturally occurring poliovirus had been eradicated from the Western Hemisphere owing to repeated mass immunization campaigns with the Sabin vaccine in Central and South America.
Pfizer are still manufacturing a variant of the Sabin polio vaccine for other countries even to this day. They stand to financially profit if more vaccines are wanted in rich countries again. Smithsonian even oddly kept a Pfizer Sabin vial from 2007 as a historical item. The WHO also admitted in 2014 Pfizer were still manufacturing the vaccine (emphasis added):
Globally many manufacturers produce the trivalent OPV using Sabin vaccine seeds provided by the World Health Organization except for the Pfizer polio Sabin type 3.
Bear in mind this is an “OPV” (oral poliovirus vaccine) - an orally administered polio virus (oral meaning mouth). It isn’t injected. It will become very relevant later on.
The WHO would then go on to boldly declare - without proof - in 2019 that the type 3 Polio virus had been eradicated, whilst also mentioning they declared the type 2 strain had been “certified” as wiped out in 2015:
WPV3 is the second strain of the poliovirus to be wiped out, following the certification of the eradication of WPV2 in 2015.
I don’t know who you go to to get certified for complete disease eradication. Caretaker of Planet Earth? They don’t detail their process, what their evidence is or explain their reasoning, the WHO just insists you trust them on their word that they’ve been “certified” by someone with no details.
The WHO’s claims are even harder to believe when you realise - according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control - at least 70% of all polio (alt. poliomyelitis) are asymptomatic. That means without symptoms (a - Greek for the word ‘not’, so asymptomatic means ‘not symptomatic’). Even a 2009 study of Children in Northern India found they were largely asymptomatic with Polio.
So unless the WHO have tested everybody - which we know they haven’t - it is impossible to believe their claims as being true, as it means 70% of cases will go undetected, even by the carrier themselves.
So, why are the media and CDC suddenly screaming about polio cases in wastewater but not human cases? What is causing the outbreaks in New York if it has been supposedly eradicated?
The Polio Vaccines Themselves
This will run contrary to everything you have been taught by those propping up pharmaceutical companies, and has even been omitted by the media outlets reporting on it, but the CDC were forced to admit the polio virus in the wastewater was vaccine-derived (archived backup in-case they try to delete the evidence).
Now, you need to watch out for the cognitive dissonance, but they admit the wastewater polio is “vaccine-derived”, as in… the polio vaccines themselves are causing the outbreak.
Their flimsy attempts at justification with mind boggling levels of mental gymnastics are laughable. They call the person infected with the vaccine virus… unvaccinated (wouldn’t that mean everyone who received a virus from a vaccine are also ‘unvaccinated’? Asking for a friend with a vaccine passport):
[…] In July 2022, CDC was notified of a case of polio caused by vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (VDPV2) in an unvaccinated individual from Rockland County, New York […]
Notice the polio virus type in question is type 2, the same polio virus the WHO declared eradicated with the type 2 polio vaccine back in 2015. The one causing the outbreak here.
The CDC’s mental gymnastics aim for the spine-bending Nth space compression pretzel logic level by suggesting the way to stop a vaccine-caused outbreak of a virus is… more of the same vaccines… for “unvaccinated” people… who are carrying the vaccinated virus… stopping short of overtly stating that they themselves are generating the problem of which their own “solution” is causing:
Public health experts are working to understand how and where the individual was infected and provide protective measures, such as vaccination services to the community to prevent the spread of polio to under- and unvaccinated individuals.
The mental gymnastics are utterly laughable and embarassing, written as if by a vaccine PR-salesman desperately trying to justify why his product failed. We can demonstrate even further the vaccines are near practically the sole cause of polio in modern day countries by understanding how polio is spread.
You need to understand how polio is actually transmitted, and why the polio vaccines do not deserve the credit they claim. It will blow your mind because you’ve likely been taught your entire life that vaccines deserve sole credit, with zero attention paid to any other methodology, and this is what we’d call brainwashing: A lie repeated so often it becomes the truth.
As the WHO themselves admit, polio is transmitted via the faecal-oral route, and also sometimes contaminated food and water, but the food and water is typically contaminated with polio-carrying faecal matter.
In less jargon terms, that means poop-to-mouth. More simplistically, a lack of appropriate hand washing and sanitisation practices, such as washing hands after going toilet, and drinking sanitised water.
In order to get wild polio, you have to effectively touch poop of a contaminated person, never wash your hands, never wash or cook your food, drink contaminated water that has been exposed to feces (poop) or raw sewage, and basically ensure it reaches your mouth.
Essentially, polio has been largely eradicated due to modern day amenities such as clean treated drinking water, soap and water sinks in bathrooms, cooking practices, not vaccines. You won’t hear about these achievements however, because there isn’t a “Big Soap” or “Big Water” trying to conspire to convince you to get more of their product.
They don’t have to. You likely already use their products en-mass. Their success is the fact every household has at least two sinks - one always located in the bathroom. Handwashing to stop disease spread is a given. It’s odd the Smithsonian Institute doesn’t have a liquid soap dispenser from 2007 for all their achievements.
Which is why richer countries are practically free of polio, but poorer countries - with access to the same vaccines we do - aren’t. Rich countries have sanitisation, poor countries don’t (example: India has a raw sewage problem). The vaccine effectively reintroduces it to sanitisation using areas.
It Gets Worse
Returning back to the earlier quoted 2014 WHO article on polio vaccination, the article is more specifically about the adverse harms of the polio vaccine:
One listed is “Vaccine-associated paralytic polio”, of which a part says:
Sabin strains can replicate in the gut of vaccine recipients and poliovirus maybe excreted for 4 to 6 weeks. During this time, the few attenuating mutations present in the vaccine strains revert rapidly and the virus changes via several mechanisms
Don’t worry if you didn’t understand that. So ‘replicate’ here means to ‘produce more of’, essentially the virus is growing. ‘Excreted’ means the polio virus is being pooped out - note what was said earlier on how the virus spreads.
‘Sabin strains’ means strains (variants, versions of the virus) of the Sabin vaccine, so literally these are vaccine-derived strains.
‘Attenuating’ is supposed to mean ‘weakened’, but in this case the quote admits that ‘attenuating mutations’ occur, supposedly (they haven’t provided any proof of the claim), the mutations in the virus disables the attenuation, turning it back to normal.
The WHO insert is quite laughable, rife with contradictions over the adverse harms for oral poliovirus vaccine. One section declares that:
[…] There are case reports of transverse myelitis reported after OPV […]
But then tries to insinuate it must have been caused by the multiple vaccines the person had received. Notice they don’t have any evidence for this claim, so they don’t overtly state it, just insinuate the connection by sly wording (emphasis added):
There are case reports of transverse myelitis reported after OPV, but occurred following the administration of multiple vaccines
And yet, immediately in the next section, they flipflop and declare actually OPV is ‘safe’ with multiple vaccines:
OPV can be administered with other vaccines, with no evidence of increased rates of adverse events nor reduced immunogenicity.
And yet, they’re forced to admit, in the very same paragraph, it does indeed lead to an adverse outcome - ‘reduced immunogenicity’ (immune response) in rotavirus vaccines:
However in general, the immune responses (i.e., antibody levels) to rotavirus vaccination were lower when rotavirus vaccines were co-administered with OPV. This is particularly greater after the first dose of OPV (M.Patel et al. 2012).
This counts as an “adverse event” because it negatively impacts rotavirus vaccination.
Watch the WHO flipflop like a fish on land. Flip - multiple vaccines insinuated to cause transverse myelitis [inflamed spinal column]; Flop - actually it ‘safe’ with other vaccines; Flip - actually it adversely impacts rotavirus vaccines.
Amongst the other listed adverse harms (all pre-faced with the unevidenced lie they’re ‘rare’ or ‘not attributed’ despite being forced to include it in a warning sheet) include:
Vaccine-derived poliovirus (causing a polio outbreak)
Aseptic meningitis/encephalitis (causing dangerous inflammation/swelling of the brain)
Guillain–Barré syndrome (causing a life-crippling neurological disorder)
Transverse myelitis (causing spinal inflammation)
Provocation poliomyelitis (fancy wording to obscure the fact the injection will paralyse the limb it is injected into)
Watch the media reporting on the subject, and you’ll find a great many of them who report on the polio outbreak won’t tell you of the downsides of the vaccines (which is bias reporting, by the way) or the causes of the outbreak, usually trying to scapegoat “unvaccinated” people without proof.
CDC Twists The Truth
The CDC’s claim is that the vaccine-derived virus ‘reverts’, as if it somehow remembers a previous state, but nearly all virologists will tell you viruses are not really living creatures - they don’t really have a working memory to ‘revert to’.
[…] the weakened virus can revert to a form that causes illness and paralysis.
In personal opinion, this smells like bulls**t to cover up the fact they’re intentionally giving a defective product so they can sell more of said defective product. It is doubtful the virus ‘reverts’, and more likely it is behaving exactly as it was delivered.
We can see this in the endless worldwide reports. “Vaccine-derived polio spreads in Africa after defeat of wild virus” - the Guardian, “UN says new polio outbreak in Sudan caused by oral vaccine” - AP news, or this hilarious piece of insanity from NPR: “Vaccine-derived polio is on the rise. A new vaccine aims to stop the spread”.
A vaccine caused the problem and you want to use even more vaccines to “solve” the problem they caused? Infinite profit for vaccine industry! Create the problem they will help you “solve”. Vaccine cultism is at a new low.
CDC Tries To Skirt Liability
By claiming it “reverts, the CDC is also trying to maliciously give, both themselves and profiteering pharmaceutical companies (the likes of which are in bed with Coca-Cola - really looking out for your health on that one) a “get out of jail free” card, by trying to explicitly suggest the polio vaccines don’t cause paralysis, some magical event in the gut does, as if your gut has been conspiring to cause you paralysis this entire time.
Except the polio vaccines do, and not just to the vaccine-taker, either, as one $22.3 million payout case demonstrated. The mother, Elizabeth, had gotten her daughter, Diana, a polio vaccine. Whilst changing her daughter’s diaper (remember, polio spreads via poop), she contracted vaccine-derived polio from her daughter. Her husband, Dominick, then caught the polio from her, and became paralysed as a result.
The case started in 1981, and took until 2009 to complete, taking nearly 30 years. This is how hard pharmaceutical companies will fight you if you become critically injured and opt to directly sue.
It took so long even the pediatrician who had administered the vaccine and was named in the lawsuit - Leroy Schwartz - had died. And this wasn’t even Pfizer, this was a lesser known, less financially rich company called “Lederle Laboratories”.
The CDC wants you to forget this, and wants you to believe the vaccine-sourced virus magically just spontaneously changes into a harmful, paralysis-and-spread causing virus inside the gut, “reverting” as if it was a back button on a browser. ‘We’re innocent guv’nor’ they plead.
But these problems were known even as far back as 1997.
Stanford Weighs In
In 1997, Stanford published a study that the CDC - if they weren’t busy maliciously conspiring with Coca-Cola and pharmaceutical companies - would be aware of. The study is not vague and goes straight for the jugular (emphasis added):
The administration of this live, attenuated vaccine given to infants at 2,4, and 16-18 months of age is associated with 5-10 cases per year of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP). Paralytic poliomyelitis still exists in the US, but it is solely the result of the administration of OPV (31).
Read that? Paralysis by polio in the US is caused solely by the administration of the Oral Poliovirus Vaccine, the OPV. In the words of cartoon character, industry-unsafe Willy Wonka:
Plain as day, black and white, you lose, good day sir!
So, as the title of the article suggests, you shouldn’t trust the panic on polio. Indeed, getting the vaccine may be the very thing that leads to the circular self-referential outbreaks. Just wash your hands, avoid poop-to-mouth (faecal-to-oral) transmission, and don’t drink contaminated water or eat contaminated food, and whatever you do, don’t trust the CDC.
