Ok, didn't know it did that. In the search box type in "simian", and the link will pop up. Research on the connection between the first IPV? (since the one they are talking about was pulled about 1950-60) and cancer.

ema-adama: Salk was not appreciated by his peers when he worked in Pittsburgh, PA. He was never nominated for a Nobel Prize and he left to live in N. California as soon as he could. None of his co-workers followed him. There was some disagreement there that was never disclosed.

For a great discussion on contamination of vaccines.

Yes, I reckon something happened that is not not being openly discussed. And it looks like it could have had something to do with his personality and also with his methedology of inactivating the polio virus with formalin. There was scientific debate over how to do it, and it looks like there is evidence that the methedology that Salk was using was not effective.

What I find strange is that people that do believe that the Salk vaccine did what it is claimed to have done, do not have the evidence that that vaccine did it.

I am dissapointed that the questioning of the Salk vaccine is considered irrelevant.

In a discussion where vaccines are being questioned, parents are asked to support their questions with evidence. It strikes me that the scientific community is not pressed to offer their evidence for such a an amazing claim.

No problem. I noticed that the FDA link on polio vaccine contamination is no longer active. I'll have to see if I saved the document itself.
