In February 2000, the Atlantic Magazine online featured,”The Virus and the Vaccine” by Debbie Bookchin and Jim Schumacher (a Vermonter). Introduction: “According to A simian virus known as SV40 has been associated with a number of rare human cancers. This same virus contaminated the polio vaccine administered to 98 million Americans from 1955 to 1963. Federal health officials see little reason for concern. A growing cadre of medical researchers disagree.”

Does it concern you that CDC is deleting website pages?
Who – specifically – authorized the recent removal of the page on SV40 virus from the CDC website?
This page existed just this morning – we used it for a post we wrote, (7/16/2013, “Once upon a time, our government employees took responsibility for their mistakes.”)
As Catherine J. Frompovich writes:
After half a century, the 108th U.S. Congress House of Representatives Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness finally held a hearing September 10, 2003, on the simian virus (SV40) that was included in the original polio vaccine produced and administered to children in the 1950s and 1960s.
Candidly, the first page of the transcript for the hearing states:
There is no dispute that millions of Americans received polio vaccines that were contaminated with the virus called Simian Virus 40, or SV–40. There also is no dispute that SV–40 is capable of causing cancer, but there is a major dispute as to how many Americans may have received the contaminated vaccine, with estimates ranging from 4 million to 100 million people. There is also a major dispute as to when the polio vaccine supply got cleaned up. In addition, nobody knows how many people got sick or died because of the contaminated vaccines.
As Eileen Danneman writes,
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posts on its own website the concern that as many as 30 million Americans could be at risk for cancer after receiving a Polio vaccination during the 1955 – 1963 time frame. This possibility exists because the vaccine in question was found to be contaminated with the SV40 virus. Most Americans received multiple doses of this vaccine that was administered to almost 100 million people.”
And as Sarah writes, “It Only Took 50 Years: CDC Admits Polio Vaccine Tainted with Cancer Causing Virus.”
I guess that CDC is unprepared to tell the truth after all. No surprise here, but we still want to know who is responsible for this unprecedented censorship of information.
