1. Prove they really had polio. Do you know how polio was commonly diagnosed back then? I'll just say it was about as "un-scientific" as could be. The video explains this, with facts from that time period.
2. So, because polio declined during the time of the vaccine, are we to assume the vaccine is the cause? Were there any other environmental factors at that time? Yes, there were. If you want to know why polio declined, you must know everything that might have contributed to the decline. Again, see video for more facts.
Why not watch the video and debunk it for us? Show us how wrong we are! The video is full of facts, which we all can appreciate.
You see, vaccine advocates have the burden of proof. If I am expected to give my child a vaccine, it should be up to you (general pro-vax you) to prove to me why I should. It is not up to me to prove why I don't want this elective medical procedure.
So, why should I believe the polio vaccines had anything to do with the decline of polio? The facts do not support this claim.
