Why, do you have figures for how much it would cost to dispose and what the fine imposed would be? Expand my imagination with facts, not baseless conjecture.
it's like they're immune to the poison they've saturated the world with.
i find it strange that the mass media over here is not picking this up, usually they are pretty fast on publishing such things here

Well at least you can look on the bright side, at least polio is not transmittable to other animals besides humans, because then dumping it into a river is a pretty good way transmitting it from host to host and into a larger populations. It would be the equivalent of dumping it in the water treatment plants which eventually ends up as tap water, only with a less likely chance that all the other chemicals in that goes in tap water would not kill it off, if you were looking to spread a virus or some such it would be a more effective way to spread it by dumping into a river, then in the water chain supply of cities, especially if it can hop back and forth from animal to humans. Anyways vaccines only work on one strand of the virus, so who knows maybe with so much of it being dumped into the river it may transmutation into the wildlife population, and eventually at some time in the future transmutation back into the human population making there vaccines effectively useless.
Most likely though somebody got paid so they can dump that stuff, in fact dumping waste in other countries is pretty big business, lots of people got very rich from dumping waste and garbage from say countries like the US in other countries, say all the waste that would get fined or would cost to much and nobody wants to talk about even regular garbage. Its actually much more cheaper to get rid of some stuff by shipping it over seas and paying a politician to invent a story or buying off official leader to look the other way, then it would be to dump it in the usual places.
Were outsourcing our garbage as well to poorer countries because its cheaper.
live polio virus represents a risk to public health if susceptible populations, such as areas with low polio vaccine coverage, are exposed to contaminated waters or mud.
Wouldn't it be more effective to create a nonpassive birth control and then release it in the world's water supply? That would solve the problem without killing a single person
Polio is a crippling disease that takes decades to kill. Again not very effective to reduce populations.
