I do not know if you are making fun of me or not. Yes, one line in the article, but we keep hearing about a polio outbreak in Minnesota among the Amish
. How many people will remember ONE LINE?
The point should be made that the last wild case of polio in the Western Hemisphere was in 1979! The Amish child DID NOT have polio. She was hospitalized for something else, and in the exploratory phase of her hospitalization, it was discovered that she had the polio virus in her gut after studying a stool sample.
All cases of polio in North America since have been associated with the OPV.
This was NOT AN OUTBREAK of polio of any kind. If doctors studied stool samples on every person who is hospitalized, more polio may be found. I assume since she was not vaxed, the sample was ordered, - just a guess.
Did you know that the FIL of Jenna Bush acquired polio from changing his son's diaper in the early 1970s? He has been in a wheelchair ever since.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_H._Hager
|This never made sense to me. Logically, the vaccinated kids would be the carriers.
You should know that the polio virus is mutating in Nigeria. The unvaxed are being blamed for that. That also makes no sense.
