Could Vaccines Be Involved in 'Provoking' AFM?
In 2015, Dr. Allan Cunningham, a retired pediatrician from New York, wrote an intriguing analysis to the BMJ, asking "Do we need a new approach to making vaccine recommendations?" He was specifically referring to the "U.S. mystery of acute flaccid myelitis," which at the time was just over 100 cases in 34 states, alongside a spate of more than 1,100 cases of EV D68, the latter of which did not seem to be the overriding cause.
He brings up an important phenomenon, however, known as provocation poliomyelitis, which describes the increased risk of neurological complications known to occur if a person with a polio virus infection receives an injury to a skeletal muscle, which could include an injection from a vaccine. As noted in the Journal of Virology:
"Skeletal muscle injury is known to predispose its sufferers to neurological complications of concurrent poliovirus infections. This phenomenon, labeled 'provocation poliomyelitis,' continues to cause numerous cases of childhood paralysis due to the administration of unnecessary injections to children in areas where poliovirus is endemic.
Recently, it has been reported that intramuscular injections may also increase the likelihood of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis in recipients of live attenuated poliovirus vaccines."
What's more, in most cases polio is a mild illness, causing sore throat, low-grade fever, fatigue, nausea and other flu-like symptoms that disappear in two to 10 days. Often, polio can occur and show no symptoms at all.
It's only in 1 to 2 percent of cases that polio virus invades the central nervous system, resulting in paralysis. This means some people receiving vaccinations could have an underlying polio infection and not even know it.
Risk of Paralytic Polio Increased Twentyfold Among Children Who Received DPT Vaccine
Of note, polio is only one type of enterovirus. There are more than 100 nonpolio enteroviruses, most of which are mild but some of which can infect the central nervous system and cause serious illness, including paralysis.
"Enteroviruses are the most prevalent viruses in the world," according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control,7 which means it's likely that some children receiving vaccinations are probably infected with an enterovirus at the time of the injection, perhaps displaying no symptoms or only mild fever or flu-like symptoms (and many physicians see no problem with vaccinating a child who is mildly ill).
Is it possible that provocation poliomyelitis could occur in children vaccinated while infected with a nonpolio enterovirus? It's a question that deserves a closer look. As Cunningham explained:
"It is taboo to suggest a role for vaccines, but some old-timers remember 'provocation poliomyelitis' or 'provocation paralysis.' This is paralytic polio following intramuscular injections, typically with vaccines.
PP was most convincingly documented by Austin Bradford Hill and J. Knowelden during the 1949 British polio epidemic when the risk of paralytic polio was increased twentyfold among children who had received the DPT injection … Similar observations were made by Greenberg and colleagues in New York City; their literature review cited suspected cases as far back as 1921."
As it stands, the CDC only states, "AFM or neurologic conditions like it have a variety of causes such as viruses, environmental toxins and genetic disorders." However, according to Cunningham, "AFM may result from a direct virus attack on the spinal cord, or by an immune attack triggered by a virus, or by something else. If a polio-like virus is circulating in the U.S., the possibility of its provocation by one or more vaccines has to be considered."

western medicine is death, beware
Parents of children who had a horrifying polio-like illness are accusing the Centers for Disease Control of hiding the deaths of two children who suffered from the condition.
The parents say by not publicly acknowledging the two deaths, the agency is intentionally downplaying the severity of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a disease that paralyzes healthy children in a matter of hours.
"I feel like they're just sugar-coating this," said Katie Bustamante, whose son Alex, age 6, died in May. "It eliminates my trust in the CDC."
Survivor of rare polio-like illness shares her story
Their accusations come amid a wave of criticism from parents of children with AFM and from some of the CDC's own medical advisers. In a recent on-camera interview with CNN, a group of parents gave the agency an "F" for its handling of the outbreak.
A CDC official said while she couldn't comment directly on the boys' cases, there may be a "lag" in AFM reporting from physicians to health departments to the CDC.
"I think we want to catch up with the backlog," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, a 30-year veteran of the CDC and a retired rear admiral in the US Public Health Service. "Even the past week we've expanded the number of disease detectives on the program."
On its AFM surveillance webpage, the CDC doesn't mention any deaths from AFM. At a press briefing last month, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, mentioned that the agency knew of one death in 2017, but did not mention any deaths this year, even when asked about it by a reporter.
Chris and Robin Roberts lost their 5-year old son, Carter, in September after a 2-year battle with AFM. CNN has seen portions of Carter's and Alex's medical records, which show their doctors had diagnosed them with AFM. In Carter's case, doctors at three medical centers -- Virginia Commonwealth University, Johns Hopkins and Boston Children's Hospital -- diagnosed him with the disease.
The CDC has set up a system where physicians report cases of AFM to their state health departments, which in turn report the cases to the CDC.
Two pediatric neurologists who serve as medical advisers to the CDC on AFM say they think the agency could be faster in reviewing and reporting cases and deaths.
"It shouldn't be taking this long to confirm these cases," said Dr. Keith Van Haren, assistant professor of neurology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and one of the CDC advisers. That kind of a turn around time for mortality reviews is a symptom of a disconnect at the CDC."
Carter's parents agree.
"They're doing a s*** job of measuring this, excuse my French," said his mother, Robin, a healthcare IT specialist.
Yeah traditional.medicine is much better, who wants want to live past 30 anyway? And why not just have 12 children and hope one or 2 survive to adulthood, easy.
The conspiracy theory that western medicine is death will solve the conspiracy theory of global warming by virtue of the conspiracy theory of evolution and survival of the fittest. Thus making the planet safe for Aliens...
tim, use your work bench to construct a clue, you bash alternative medicine for the problems of modern medicine, life expectancy and intelligence have both been dropping under the "modern" system, and you engloids seem to be winnng the race to the bottom
http://www.ghostshipmedia.com/2018/09/1 ... -epidemic/Much more is revealed in Siri’s shredding of the Great Dr. Plotkin. Many vaccines in current use in infants, he confirmed under oath, have only been monitored for side effects for a few days – certainly not long enough to register immunological problems, he conceded. Trial data from vaccine after vaccine deliberately obscures side effects and inflates benefits, he acknowledged. Vaccine’s effects are weak and may last only a few years. Adverse events from vaccines are grossly underreported – perhaps by as much as 100-fold. And so on, and so on.
