|Someone mentioned here that the polio vaccine has infected more people then cured, could I have some numbers because I have heard different
I think you were referring to my reply, but what you typed above is not what I said. I said that I think when it's all said and done, vaccination campaigns will have caused more deaths than saved lives - and yes, I was referring to all those that will die from AIDS. I don't know, nor does anyone, how many people the polio vaccine has saved from polio. But, seeing as Africa didn't even have polio when Kaprowski & co. negligently used Africans as human guinea pigs, I don't see where there was a need for them to be "saved".
|vaccines are really the only thing we can do before a disease would wipe out an entire country. Look at South Africa and AIDS as an example.
To infer that all of Africa would be wiped out unless we either vaccinate them or "fix" them is really underestimating Mother Nature, imo. I'm not sure what example Africa and AIDS provides. Do you mean to say that unless we find a vaccine for HIV that entire countries will be wiped out? That may be true of this disease, but man put this disease in man, I believe. I also believe that if the African governments will be realistic about this disease and quit pretending it doesn't exist among their people, great strides can be made and many lives can be saved. Unfortunately, Western scientists are putting more energy into finding a vaccine than they are educating African governments.
Scientists agree that HIV came directly from SIV, which chimpanzees carry. Africans have been around chimps for thousands of years. You'd think that if a bite from a chimp could cause humans to get and spread HIV so quickly, then Africa would've been barren of humans thousands of years ago. Dr. Kaprowski went to the Belgian Congo, made polio vaccine from chimpanzees (according to the workers at the chimp camp and the lab), didn't test it for safety, and poured it into the mouths of over 1 million Africans. HIV showed up there a few years following (no one realized this until the 1980's), coincidentally, with the first cases concentrated in the areas where the vaccine was given. We'll never have the peace of getting a definitive answer because the scientists involved are dead or still lying, but, so far, no scientist has come up with any better explanation.
Maybe, if we would've left them alone in the first place, they wouldn't have a need for our wonderful vaccinations. I don't doubt the horrible things that you have seen. I can't even imagine. They truly must haunt you. But, again, "we" (Europeans and Americans) have certainly had a hand in causing the tragedy, whether it be AIDS or diseases we brought with us during colonization, etc. If we are going to do any "fixing", then I think we should fix it the right way.
