No, it isn't.
During the 1916 epidemic, 9,000 cases occurred in New York City, which called for quarantines.
So your 100% sure he had polio?It is thought that FDR's severe paralysis was in part due to the strenuous exercise he did the day before the onset of symptoms "...the onset of disease following a day of strenuous exercise and the eventual asymmetric paralysis of Roosevelt's legs and arms is consistent with a study showing that motor neurons innervating muscles vigorously at the start of polio are those most likely to become paralyzed." I think I read that he had been playing tennis and rowing a boat for several hours the day before. Waiting to resume vaccination until after a polio outbreak seems like a reasonable compromise at the time. Glad we don't have to worry about that anymore.
There is an interesting background to the 1916 outbreak. However, those of us who are interested in reality have already seen the story...Yes, sorry. 9,000 cases of Polio in NYC with nearly 2,500 deaths. 27,000 cases and 6,000 deaths in the entire US.
The peak was 1952 when the US had 58,000 cases and 3,145 deaths.
Again, the 1916 polio outbreak preceded DDT by decades and also preceded the vaccines discussed in the article in the OP.
Dan Olmstead has been writing on the 1916 polio outbreak. It's quite fascinating as he is including newspaper clippings and maps etc from that time. He also includes comments from someone with an advanced degree in environmental toxicology who is answering his questions. He isn't done, it is a work in progress as he researches more.There is an interesting background to the 1916 outbreak.

Anyway, the outbreak is tightly connected to a shipment of sugar from Hawaii which was horrendously contaminated with arsenic based insecticides. Many of the cases were actually linked in clusters to locations like ice-cream parlors and bakeries.
This is one of the reasons that the vaccine enthusiasts have been so successful in hiding the real facts around polio and risk factors.
It isn't just one sort of insecticide or toxin--anything that damages the digestive system--including arsenic--can allow polio into the nervous system.
It isn't just one sort of provocation like injections--it is a variety of activities or exposures that up the risk. A very complex picture and one that is easily obscured.

There is a lot more there if anyone is interested.Never mind that lead and arsenic poisoning don’t produce a syndrome like polio. Never mind that polio has probably been known for hundreds of years, possibly as far back as ancient Egypt. At the very least, polio was known back in the 18th century.
In fact, some of the worst epidemics of polio occurred in the 1940s and 1950s, when lead arsenate pesticide use was on the wane. So how do B&O explain that inconvenient observation? Easy. they pivot and switch to a different pesticide. Yes, we’re talking DDT, baby! DDT was introduced in the late 1940s and soon supplanted lead arsenate-containing pesticides. Now (they) pivot seamlessly to DDT, amazing the world at how two such different chemicals can somehow interact with the polio virus in the same way in order to produce paralysis. It’s magic. Amazing how two different chemicals with entirely different mechanisms of action apparently cause the same thing.
I think Teacozy must have me blocked, since I've gone over this material multiple times.Dr. Gorski responded to the arsenic nonsense a long time ago:

The mental gymnastics that many of those in the non/anti vaccine community use to try and minimize the awfulness of polio and the amazing success of the polio vaccine really is....interesting.
https://vaccinesbytheoutliers.wordp...er-and-popper-really-discover-the-poliovirus/In 1908 two scientists working in Austria, Karl Landsteiner and Erwin Popper, reported that they might have found an ‘invisible virus’ that had caused these epidemics [of infantile paralysis]. They had made their discovery, they claimed, after making a suspension in water of minced diseased spinal cord from a nine-year-old victim of infantile paralysis. They had tested this noxious suspension by injecting one or two cups of it directly into the brains of two monkeys. The monkeys fell severely ill (as might have been predicted). One died and the other had its legs paralysed. The scientists then dissected the monkeys and found damage in their central nervous tissues similar to that found in human cases of infantile paralysis.
Today the World Health Organisation (WHO) still credits Landsteiner and Popper as having found the poliovirus with this experiment. Why it does so is inexplicable. The fluid they injected must have contained much human cellular debris, any toxins involved in the child’s illness, and probably several kinds of viruses. So, it was no wonder the monkeys fell so desperately ill. Such a soup could in no way be considered an ‘isolate’ of the tiny organism we now call a virus. It was also strangely non-infectious for a so-called virus, for the monkeys were not paralysed when made to drink it or when one of their limbs was injected with it, nor did they pass it on to other monkeys. The experiment, in fact, shed no light on what had paralysed the monkeys, and for that matter, the children.
I'm sure Dan Olmsted would love to be enlightened since not even he is suggesting the virus doesn't exist.
