Did inoculating millions of trusting schoolchildren with polio vaccines contaminated by monkey viruses trigger an epidemic of soft-tissue cancers? Was a desperate effort to develop an anti-cancer vaccine diverted secretly into biological weapons? Is there a link between these covert experiments and AIDS?

Thanks for the links
The vaccine's manufacturers had grown their polioviruses on the kidneys of monkeys. And when they removed the poliovirus from the monkey's kidneys. They also removed an unknown number of other monkey viruses. The more they looked, the more they found.
Hear the Chief of Vaccines explain how the massive cross-contamination of monkeys in Merck’s laboratories lead him to import African Green Monkeys loaded with SIV (ancestor virus to HIV/AIDS) into the U.S. for research in his vaccine laboratory. Then Hilleman details how he personally broke the news to the polio vaccine developer Albert Sabin in 1954 that he had found SV-40, a cancer causing virus in Sabin’s polio vaccine.
