Do vaccines cause cancer? Well Straight from the horses mouth, The CDC says it just may be so … but after 50 years they state more studies are needed (REALLY?).
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.
It is stated that after the discovery (in 1960), any newly manufactured Polio vaccine was free of this virus (it took 3 years). No information is available as to exactly how much of the vaccine was tainted at the time, nor is there any information as to the controls put in place to insure all the tainted vaccine was effectively recalled.
Why did it take three years after the discovery of the contamination to reformulate the vaccine? Could the manufacturer suffering a huge loss be a factor? Was the existing stock utilized after the discovery? Was the infected vaccine supply destroyed, or sold off by the manufacturer to avoid a huge loss (this has happened before)?
With almost 100 million Americans (most receiving several doses) affected (and many Russians), the stated (CDC) 30 million possible infections seems understated or arbitrary at best.
Now consider that today maturing baby boomers, who would have been at the optimum age to have received Polio vaccinations during this time period are experiencing the highest cancer rate of all age groups with some studies showing cancer rates as high as 1 in 3 individuals, up from an estimated 1 in over 8,000 in the early 1900′s.
Remember, regardless if the CDC states the vaccines as the culprit for a portion of the massive increase in baby boomer cancer … you cant sue Big Pharma because the government granted them immunity!
Please read (between the lines) the included ‘CDC Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine Fact Sheet’ but remember it is what is not said or provided that is most important …
Link to CDC fact sheet shown above: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/updates/archive/polio_and_cancer_factsheet.htm
When reading the CDC data sheet the first thing that should pop into you mind is ‘nothing said is definitive’:
Nothing in any of these statements lends confidence to an organization responsible for safeguarding the health and well-being of Americans, but it sure looks like they can tap-dance …
Yes thank you, I was being ironic....check out this article with a little more analysis.
Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine Fact Sheet

This is one of the most outrageous vaccination stories I’ve ever come across. The CDC posted on its own website (which was taken down shortly after this post went viral. Click here for an internet archived copy) that as many as 30 million Americans could be at risk for developing cancer due to polio vaccines tainted with Simian Virus 40 (SV40) found in some species of monkey.
This story is not new – many of of us who thoroughly researched the vaccination issue before choosing whether or not to immunize were already aware of this fact years ago.
I became aware of the tainted polio vaccines from 1955-1963 in the late 1990′s and it was one of the primary motivators for me to choose a “no shots, no way” approach for my children.
What is new is that the CDC is finally admitting it.
What took you so long CDC? Many of the folks vaccinated with the tainted polio stock are already dead from cancer with many more getting diagnosed each and every day!
Here’s the exact language from the CDC Fact Sheet. I am reprinting it here in it’s entirety in case the CDC decides to take it down. UPDATE: The CDC did in fact take down the page on SV40 shortly after this post went viral, so the link now goes to an archived copy.
Possibly more shocking than the fact that it took 50 years for the CDC to admit to this is that it took 3 years once SV40 was discovered in 1960 to finally recall the tainted stock and reformulate the vaccine. Over 100 million Americans were vaccinated with the contaminated polio vaccine before action was taken.
30 million seems like a very lowball number of the true extent of the problem!
With baby boomers suffering from cancer, by some estimates, at the mind boggling rate of 1 in every 3 individuals (up from 1 in 8,000 only a few decades prior and the highest rate of any age group), it would seem that something is terribly amiss, don’t you think?
The government has a penchant for doling out bad news a little at a time to minimize public outrage. Even if the CDC does finally admit that SV40 is a cause for this enormous explosion in cancer of boomers in their late 40′s, 50′s and 60′s, can these folks or their grieving families do anything about it?
Nope. Can’t sue anyone my friends. Big Pharma is immune from prosecution from any injuries or deaths caused by their mad scientist vaccination creations.
One parting thought. The CDC insists that current polio vaccines no longer contain SV40. Should this give us some level of comfort?
Not for me it doesn’t! Just because SV40 is not in the polio vaccine stock today doesn’t mean that there aren’t other viruses lurking that science doesn’t even know about yet. Remember that SV40 was in the polio vaccine for several years before it was even discovered!
Even if there were other viruses in the polio or any other vaccine, would the CDC admit it? Probably not – at least for 50 years or so after the affected population was already sick, incapacitated or dead.
I’ll take my chances with a strong immune system maintained with Traditional Diet and the fact that epidemics were already on their way out before vaccines were introduced anyway (see chart to the right – other communicable diseases follow the same graphical pattern regardless of whether there was a vaccine for them or not). Getting horses out of the streets, improved sanitation, clean running water in the home, availability of produce year round and other improvements of modern technology and food distribution provide more protection from widespread epidemics than tainted vaccines, thank you very much.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The CDC took down its page on SV40 late this afternoon shortly after this post went viral. Fortunately, an internet archive site has the information for you to see in full. Click here for the archived copy.
