Here is an excerpt of the press release:<br><br>
WASHINGTON, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/<br><br>
-- A congressional hearing on polio vaccine contamination that is associated<br>
with cancer will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2003, by the<br>
Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness, U.S. Government Reform Committee<br>
in Room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building at 2:00 p.m. The<br>
Committee, chaired by Congressman Dan Burton (R-IN), is investigating the<br>
contamination of inactivated and live oral polio vaccines with SV40, a<br>
monkey virus which has been associated with brain, bone and lung tumors<br>
found in children and adults today.<br><br>
New information will be released during testimony that suggests live oral<br>
polio vaccine used through the 1990's may have been contaminated with SV40.<br>
Industry and federal health officials have maintained that oral polio<br>
vaccine stocks were SV40-free after 1963. The US used oral polio vaccine<br>
for almost all American infants until 2000.<br><br>
Witnesses include Adi Gazdar, Ph.D., University of Texas Southwestern<br>
Oncology; James J. Goedert, M.D., chief, Viral Epidemiology Branch and<br>
Senior Investigator, National Cancer Institute and Capt. U.S. Public Health<br>
Service; Stanley Kops, Esq.; Eileen Grebinski, mother of a son with SV40<br>
associated cancer; and Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president,<br>
National Vaccine Information Center.<br><br>
The hearing will be webcast on <a href="http://www.house.gov/reform" target="_blank">http://www.house.gov/reform</a>

in a side discussion, I know two men who were born around 1961, there is some connection between moms who got the polio vax in the early 60s and brain cancer in their children....<br><br>
i can't site it exactly right now.... but anyway, no shock here on this subject...<br>
but glad to see it is being brought out more and more...althought, I wish nothing sad on any child...

....looking for information and found nothing. The Human Rights and Wellness page was completely blank for scheduled events. I called their office at<br><br>
(202) 225-6427, got a recording and left a message asking why the website has no information on it.<br><br>
I have wanted to call Rep. Dan Burtons (Indiana) office for a long time just to thank them for the work they are doing so I did<br><br>
(317) 848-0201<br><br>
and spoke to a very nice person there. I asked why there was no info on the website, thanked her (probably too extensively) for their work, and she said she'd check and get back to me.<br><br>
She did, saying that no one has "approved" an update of the site since mid July.<br><br>
I'm not suprised since this is a gov/reform website.<br><br><br>
I'll be calling them for updates<br><br>
they might move a little faster if<br><br>
others call also (but then again...)<br><br><br>

And what if the virus is indeed being transmitted person to person now as has been suggested? Then it wouldn't necessarily matter if a young child received the vax, they still might be infected via people who did. And how are "they" so sure there aren't other nasties in the newer "cleaner" vaxes that they just don't know about yet?<br><br>
Does make me wonder though about dh's uncles. They were a set of twins-- one died of leukemia & several years later the other died of lymphoma. All of their siblings are cancer free.<br><br>
Some of the reports in the media last year:<br><a href="http://www.intelihealth.com/IH/ihtIH/WSIHW000/8124/21291/347025.html" target="_blank">http://www.intelihealth.com/IH/ihtIH...91/347025.html</a><br><a href="http://www.wfaa.com/healthscience/stories/031102dnlivlymphoma.7f3e0.html" target="_blank">http://www.wfaa.com/healthscience/st...oma.7f3e0.html</a><br><a href="http://www.vaccinationnews.com/DailyNews/April2002/SV40PolioVax&CancerBeyondCoincidence.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vaccinationnews.com/Daily...oincidence.htm</a>

My hubby had an *odd* brain tumor.... sure it coulda come from lots of different factors, but the one thing that stands out is the possibility/probability of SV-40 in his polio vax. We'll never (unfortunately) know EXACTLY, but it scared the you-know-what out of me when Mayo said they'd never seen a 30-year-old with this kind of cancer! Then to find the cover-up ... just what are they covering up now??? I'm so glad my doubt of government induced medicine began long before Mitch's dx!! An "oops sorry" from the powers-that-be will not return my husband to me!<br><br>
Again, Hilary, thank you so much for the work you do every day! You're an inspiration, thanks for the education!<br><br>

This is anecdotal at best, but I have at least six friend s who died of inoperable brain tumors in their early twenties or late teens.

Fabulous! I agree, the pioneers and brave souls that try to bring these travesties to light need to be thanked and recognized. I plan to write a letter or call as well, Thanks for the inspiration.<br><br>
So sad to hear everyones info and loose associations with possibilites...<br><br>
Also, the NVIC site will have updates on the congressional hearing...<br><br><a href="http://www.nvic.org" target="_blank">www.nvic.org</a> I believe

For those of you who might be interested, I wrote a column on this awhile back (but not with the more recent information), which was also later published as a letter in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients (<a href="http://www.townsendletter.com/April_2003/April2003.htm" target="_blank">http://www.townsendletter.com/April_2003/April2003.htm</a>).<br><br>
Here's the link to the column on my website: <a href="http://www.vaccinationnews.com/Scandals/Oct_25_02/Scandal39.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vaccinationnews.com/Scand.../Scandal39.htm</a><br><br>
All the best,<br>

...Sandy.<br><br>
I had it in my favorite places but I guess I had never taken a close enough look.<br><br><br>
What an AMAZING list of congressional hearings.<br>
WOW!<br><br>
I'll be printing every one of them.<br><br>
For any DWs out there that are trying to convince their DHs I would think that a congressional hearing would be good evidence for thinking at least twice about vaccination.<br><br><br>
Don't just Procreate, Disseminate!<br><br><br>
Ray<br><br>
P.S. Thank you as well for the correct source of the "Eternal vigilance quote, I had been attributing it to Ben Franklin.

Yes, thank you Ray, for letting me know how you feel about my website. I'm always thrilled when people realize what an incredible resource it is, for all of us, myself included!<br><br>
And you're welcome about the quote.<br><br>
Now, I feel like an idiot, but could someone please tell me how I can put one of those icons in the body of the email? They keep showing up at the end. Thanks so much!<br><br>
All the best,<br>
Sandy<br><br>

....good ole' Jamie Murphy was on this one 10 years ago.<br><br>
As part of the Vaccination and Animal Experimentation" chapter we have "Problems with vaccines using Animal cells"<br><br>
"Undoubtedly, the most serious untoward effect of vaccine production is the contamination of virus originating from the material the virus is grown in: animal cells, animal serum, and human serum. During the 1950s, tens of millions of doses of polio vaccine were produced from virus grown in infected monkey kidney cells. Since the late 1950s, many of these "simian viruses" had been isolated by scientists and were discovered to be contaminated polio vaccines. One such simian virus, named SV40, found in both Salk and Sabin polio virus, is resistant to the neutralizing effects of formalin, yet nevertheless was passed on to unsuspecting millions of people who received the polio vaccine in the 1950s and early 1960s."<br><br>
Looks like it's taken us until 2003 to think that maybe the contamination was more extensive:<br><br><br><a href="http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=20030909-045736-9932r" target="_blank">http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=...9-045736-9932r</a><br><br>
and perhaps went all the way to 2000.<br><br><br>
I'm more enamored with this book each day!<br><br><br>
