Headline and introductory remarks republished from Child Health Safety with permission
Here is a report from New Scientist and please note 68 is the entire number of cases worldwide:
This year there have already been 68 cases, meaning numbers could now rise much higher. Nine of those were in five countries which had no known cases last year.
Just a short question for you to consider. Autism is an international emergency outstripping all other health issues for children put together and that is literally mathematically. It is affecting around 1 in 25 families in the US, UK and other parts of the world.
Polio cases are in the region of a few hundred in the entire world and billions are being spent allegedly eradicating polio. So if you have an answer post a comment. It might be "because Bill Gates doesn't care about autistic kids, but only with claiming the credit for eliminating polio."
Why Is Polio With 68 Cases Worldwide This Year A "Global Emergency" But Autism Not With 1 in 25 Families Affected?
This provocative question and brief discussion was posted on the Child Health Safety website today, which they graciously gave us permission to republish. What a breath of fresh air, considering lapdog headlines published in the mostly synthetic news outlets, such as this New York Times piece:
These headlines follow from the WHO's May 5th statement that the recent international spread of wild poliovirus is a "public health emergency of international concern." The statement declared, "Pakistan, Cameroon, and the Syrian Arab Republic pose the greatest risk of further wild poliovirus exportations in 2014," and that these States should, "officially declare, if not already done, at the level of head of state or government, that the interruption of poliovirus transmission is a national public health emergency."
Is it not fascinating to observe the WHO, who has no enforcement authority, insert itself directly into the affairs -- "at the level of head of state or government" -- of other governments, both to declare a national health emergency and compel compulsory medical interventions that could affect every citizen of, and visitor to, their countries.
Four additional 'directives' were included:
- ensure that all residents and long-term visitors (i.e. > 4 weeks) receive a dose of OPV or inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV) between 4 weeks and 12 months prior to international travel;
- ensure that those undertaking urgent travel (i.e. within 4 weeks), who have not received a dose of OPV or IPV in the previous 4 weeks to 12 months, receive a dose of polio vaccine at least by the time of departure as this will still provide benefit, particularly for frequent travellers;
- ensure that such travellers are provided with an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis in the form specified in Annex 6 of the International Health Regulations (2005) to record their polio vaccination and serve as proof of vaccination;
- maintain these measures until the following criteria have been met: (i) at least 6 months have passed without new exportations and (ii) there is documentation of full application of high quality eradication activities in all infected and high risk areas; in the absence of such documentation these measures should be maintained until at least 12 months have passed without new exportations.
The Child Health Safety headline is a poignant question that lays bare the inherently oxymoronic nature of an organization calling itself The World Health Organization, which does not seem to have the wherewithal to apply grammar school level math to ascertain the relative global importance of the health threat it has declared a global emergency over, and is now coercing entire nations to comply with the implementation of mandatory polio campaigns, or face travel restrictions, and possibly harsher punitive measures.
The WHO's official position statement on the relationship between vaccines and autism will help to explain their conspicuous disinterest in declaring a global health emergency on the truly alarming explosion of autism diagnoses worldwide, which has expanding in proportion to global uptake of an increasing number of vaccines over the past few decades:
Q: Are childhood vaccines responsible for autism?
A: Available epidemiological data show that there is no evidence of a link between measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism spectrum disorders. Previous studies suggesting a causal link were found to be seriously flawed. There is also no evidence to suggest that any other childhood vaccine may increase the risk of autism spectrum disorders. In addition, evidence reviews commissioned by WHO concluded that there was no association between the use of preservatives such as thiomersal that contains ethyl mercury in vaccines and autism spectrum disorders.
Clearly, the conventional medical establishment pushes the meme that vaccines are not a contributing factor in autism because by their definition autism is a disease that we are supposed to believe has no known cause. In other words, you are made to believe autism's causes are unknowable, and yet you are supposed to believe that one particular intervention -- vaccination -- is absolutely not the cause. Its is a bulletproof case of cognitively dissonant non-sense, so no reasonable argument will penetrate it.
Oral Polio Vaccines: They Don't Work As Advertised, Can Cause Polio Paralysis, And Will Never Result In Global Eradication
The real tragedy is that the global polio eradication effort's solution to putting the disease to an end is to distribute and administer billions of doses of an oral, live polio vaccines containing live, replication-competent polio to the world's childhood population - the very population that is experiencing this seemingly inexplicable epidemic (only a coincidence, of course). If you get in the way of the agenda you could be labeled a 'child killer' by self-appointed global health experts like Bill Gates.
For the discerning reader -- one capable of understanding that critical inquiry on the topic requires suspending assumptions based largely on the unscientific proclamations of would-be health authorities -- a review of the following facts should bring the absurdity of the WHO's claims to light:
- Polio Vaccines Are the #1 Cause of Polio Paralysis
- Biotechnology Itself Has Made Global Polio Eradication Impossible
- Polio Vaccines Did Not Cause The Disappearance of Polio
- Polio Vaccines Have Been Linked to Ten's of Thousands of Cases of Polio Paralysis In India Alone
The truth is stranger than fiction, and if it doesn't make you a little angry, you probably haven't touched upon it. The engrained, entrenched and thoroughly faith-based nature of our confidence in the safety and effectiveness of vaccination against polio is so thorough that even the Dalai Lama has been involved in promoting and even administering oral polio vaccines in India
Presumably, this monolithic abstraction -- Science with a capital 'S' -- has become something of a global religion that devours all others, imposing itself as an overriding authority, despite the fact that the certainty in the pro-vaccine agenda, for instance, comes entirely from ironclad vaccine policy decisions and not the primary vaccine and immunology literature itself.
Who can we trust? There is one inviolable certitude here: it is a parent's right to decide whether their child should be vaccinated and demand informed consent. This is an impossible right to implement if they are mandated and the information concerning their unintended adverse effects, and at best questionable effectiveness, remain hidden.
We can only hope that any health organization that claims to act in the best interest of children recognizes that failing to do so will render them susceptible to deep criticism and eventually -- if we demand it -- reform. Our children can't do this for themselves. We must take this responsibility very seriously.
