I've discussed post polio syndrome (PPS) in several past newsletters  Today a reader from Australia posted this on my yahoo message board.  I took the polio vaccine on sugar cubes at my school around 1960.  I don't know if this had anything to do with my developing CFS in 1987 - Dominie

The Return of Polio?

Vaccine programs introduced over 50 years ago caused many of us to incubate mutant

viruses—including a form of polio for which there is no known cure!

Contrary to what you've been told, our war with this powerful virus is far from over.

The polio vaccine may have "conquered" polio strains 1 – 3…but we've since identified 69 more strains

of polio. Some cripple…some kill…some merely cause flu-like symptoms and then remain in the body

for years…to re-emerge 20 or 30 years later in the form of a mysterious Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

And the polio vaccine itself will help these 69 strains spread even faster!

A biological nightmare

In fact, thanks to the live polio vaccine, we're about to face an onslaught of bizarre and threatening

diseases. One frightening example is the "mysterious" disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrom (GBS).

After the introduction of the oral polio vaccine (OPV) in China in 1971, the incidence of polio

fell…to be replaced right away by a sharp rise in the cases of GBS.

Researchers from the Second Hospital of Hebel Medical College in China reported that "the widespread

use of the OPV may have led to…a change in the main epidemic of the polio virus," and that

"the polio virus is an agent in cases diagnosed as Guillain-Barre Syndrome."1

In other words, instead of wiping out polio…the polio vaccine simply suppressed it in favor of one

of its cousins…another paralyzing virus for which there is no known cure!

And this is just the beginning. Countless more mutations have yet to be discovered.

Is it just chronic fatigue…or Post-Polio Syndrome?

You…or your children…may have been infected with polio, without knowing it.

Only 10% of all children infected with polio actually contract the virus. The other 90% experience

nothing more than a headache…a fever… mild aches and pains.

But the virus never "goes away." It simply sits in the body, travels through the bloodstream…and,

according to some scientists, resurfaces 20 – 30 years later in the form of Post-Polio Syndrome…otherwise

known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

The first international scientific conference on the Post-Polio Syndrome, recorded in the Annals of

the New York Academy of Science, documents the research of 118 specialists, including 6 who have shown that the virus that

causes CFS is genetically related to the virus that causes polio.

In other words, CFS and polio stem from the same family tree of viruses!

Over half a million Americans suffer from CFS, with symptoms that include weakness, pain down

the spine, and other vague, recurring illnesses such as fatigue, allergies and weight loss.

Experts predict Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will be the neurological disease of this century.
