Polio: Expert Wants Parents Resisting Immunisation Jailed

 A child getting immunisation against polio
By Victor Ogunje in Ado Ekiti
An expert in Public Health, Dr. Joshua Ileke, has called on the National Assembly to make laws that will stipulate punitive measures against parents resisting immunisation for their children  in Nigeria.
Ileke, the Ekiti State Director, Primary Health Care Development Agency, commended the traditional rulers for joining the fray to tackle the menace by way of threatening  parents who indulged in the practice with outright ostracisation from the town.
Ileke said National Immunisation Plus Days (NIPDS) programme would hold between March 25 to 28, 2017 and would involve all the critical stakeholders, including traditional rulers and religious leaders across the 177 wards in the state.
Ileke, who spoke in Ado Ekiti, on Friday during a stakeholders’
meeting held in preparation for the programme, lamented that the
relisting of the country as a polio-infested nation by the World Health Orgnisation (WHO) is worrisome and intolerable.

    The brainwashing here is something to behold. The reason polio has fallen but paralysis has not is because the authorities simply refuse to diagnose polio anymore and differentially diagnose (ie rename) every single case. In 1996 according to the WHO there were 1005 recorded cases of flaccid paralysis and guess how many were deemed to be caused by polio? If you guessed 1005 you would be correct. Back then the WHO assumed all cases of AFP were polio (they certainly didn’t test every case for polio virus) and today it is the reverse – they simply assume that none of the cases are caused by polio and set the criteria for diagnosing it impossibly high. Anybody looking at what the WHO have done with polio figures in India should – if they have half a brain – automatically realise the colossal fraud of vaccinations. Not just the polio vaccine either but all if them. Every single person responsible should be in prison.

    In a 2012 article published in a medical ethics journal,4 the doctors stated, “Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received.” Because polio is among the more than 200 related viruses in the Picornaviridae family of enteroviruses, the doctors suggested that public health officials investigate “the influence of strain shifts of enteropathogens induced by the [polio] vaccine given practically every month.”

    Although not nearly as prevalent as in India, NPAFP cases are also occurring in the U.S. In early 2014, neurologists at Stanford and University of California reported five cases of sudden paralysis of one or more limbs in children ages two to 16—all fully vaccinated against polio—and the California Department of Health of Health began investigating 20 more similar cases. Two of the five children tested positive for enterovirus-68 (EV68).5

    During the summer of 2014, many more apparently healthy American children in several states, including Colorado, Missouri, Michigan and Massachusetts, were reported to be suddenly stricken with paralysis after developing cold and flu-like symptoms. Several died and, although some of the cases were associated with EV68, others were not.6

    “In 2010, the government reduced the number of pulse polio doses from 10 to 6. What we found was that between 2010-2013, the number of APF cases also came down. Our paper argues that other kinds of polio are being caused by the excessive administration of polio dosages,” Puliyel said. “Another proof is that states like Kerala and Goa, where dosages were less, AFP cases was also less. Majority of NPAFP cases are reported from Bihar and UP, where several Two doctors from Delhi’s St Stephens Hospital, Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliyel, who compiled data from the national polio surveillance project, found a link between the increase in dosage of polio vaccination and the increasing cases of NPAFP.

      we certainly know who should be in prison.

        “we certainly know who should be in prison.”
        We do … Mr Wakefield.

            And you have proof?

        • Brian

          Yup. Some are serving multiple life sentences for doing less than wakefraud.

    • algol2000

      Thank you. Swallowing virus to cure virus is false medicine. These people actually have a plan to destroy children and to ensure they cannot reproduce in future. This is their plan for mass vaccination.

      • TwinMamaManly

        Someone forgot to put on their tinfoil hat this morning!

      • poppy72

        And of course you have proof to back up your statement.

    • Mike Stevens

      Non-Polio paralysis cases are by definition due to viruses or other medical problems other than polio, but you knew that already, Judith.

      In India, it seems that the widespread surveillance exercise carried out when Polio was eradicated revealed cases that had some similarities to polio, but were caused by other viruses.

      That’s all. This is quite irrelevant to the eradication of polio, which is “this close” to being eradicated globally. The only reason it is hanging on in a few small geographical areas is because antivaccine agitators have been holding up the polio eradication programme. In Pakistan, health care workers have been shot for participating in vaccination campaigns.

      Against this background, it is understandable to see why some people who come directly from communities affected by polio (as is the person in this article) would be wanting stricter sanctions against vaccine -refusers, since they endanger not only those communities, but the rest of the world.

      Once polio is eradicated, then no-one ever need have polio vaccines ever again.
      That is a worthy goal, and one that those who are antagonistic to vaccination, like you Judith, should be supporting.

    All had fever and respiratory illness about two weeks before developing varying degrees of limb weakness. None seems to have a weak immune system or other conditions that might predispose them to severe illness, but the cases are still being investigated, Seward said. Investigators don’t think it’s polio – eight of the nine children are up to date on polio vaccinations.

    On “CBS This Morning,” medical contributor Dr. David Agus said there’s reason to believe there may be a connection. “Polio is an enterovirus so we know enteroviruses can affect neurological symptoms. In fact there was an outbreak earlier this year in the state of California where several kids got paralysis and they also had this particular virus.”

    • FallsAngel

      That does not imply a connection with polio.

  • algol2000

    So, we should swallow every prescribed medicine even poison because you say it is good, carry on CIA agent!

    • TwinMamaManly

      I bet if your child came down with polio or measles or mumps and they were gravely ill, you’d be demanding the best medical treatment conventional medicine has to offer.

      • algol2000

        Yes the best medical treatment WHEN that happens, not before. Why should you seek to prevent something that may never happen? Perhaps you may consider that it is unwise to start to take vaccines for all the thousands of possible diseases in africa, including malaria.

        • TwinMamaManly

          How about just not risking the need for intensive medical treatment in the first place?

          • algol2000

            By taking vaccines you are risking the same things you are running from. Are you in the know of the content of said vaccines? Do you know that they often contain mercury and fetuses of aborted children?

            Studies have shown that vaccines cause autism, neurological impairment, infertility and a lot of other problems in children. Why destroy a child’s natural response to diseases with vaccines?

          • TwinMamaManly

            Everything you just said is total rubbish. Do your research.

          • algol2000

            It is actually you who has not said anything. What I said here is a product of research. Stop rubbishing another man’s submissions, put yours forward!

          • TwinMamaManly

            What studies? References please. I need to know which ridiculous conspiracy theory or discredited, irreplicable “theory” to refute.

            Yes I understand the content of vaccines. Where are you getting your information? Websites of vaccine-refusers and FB, or actual peer-reviewed scientific research papers and medical professionals? I suppose you still believe in Wakefield’s thoroughly discredited “research”? If you do, it’s almost not worth the effort to debate with someone so firmly entrenched in ideology they can’t see the utterly obvious scientific evidence in front of them.

            Vaccines DO NOT contain mercury – thimomersal was removed as a stabilising agent in the 90s due to community fears. Foetuses of aborted children? Those cell lines were obtained over 50 years ago from terminations that were not for the purpose of vaccine creation – your position one of simplistic and misunderstood fear-mongering.

            What studies? Wakefield? Didn’t your lot actually commission a study to prove a link with autism and it failed to do so? Rather proved the opposite? Infertility? If you are referring to the HPV vaccine – that has practically eradicated HPV in young men and women and cervical cancer in young women – preventing infertility not causing it.

            It is extremely unfortunate that vaccine-refusers such as yourself continue to peddle this misinformation and cling onto wholly discredited “research” and conspiracy theories, as you are the cause of the resurgence of and failure to eradicate these wholly preventable diseases. Congratulations. Your team wins the dunce cap.

          • algol2000

            We know your kind of science. Please tell me also that Mosanto is a saint, and that GMO’s are safe to eat. Money corrupts, and absolutely too.

          • TwinMamaManly

            This straw man argument is a poor effort at rebuttal. You are conflating issues and introducing topics completely separate to the vaccination argument. My kind of science? What? The real one, in the real world, that is peer reviewed and able to be replicated? Not conspiracy theories, anecdotes and discredited “research”. And you’ve also made a gross erroneous assumption that because I am not a vaccination-refuser I would support Monsanto and GMOs.

          • algol2000

            There are many readers. Let them decide now. As for me, I am ending this discussion. Goodbye.

      • algol2000

        Case in point, I vaccinated my eldest child, but the younger is rarely sick. Why not allow nature to do its work?

        • TwinMamaManly

          I wouldn’t risk death, disability, cognitive impairment, disfigurement, infertility etc….allowing a child to become disabled or die by “letting nature do its work” sounds like neglectful parenting to me.

  • Too far for my liking.
