Polio surge in Nigeria after vaccine virus mutates


news.yahoo.com

LONDON – Polio, the dreaded paralyzing disease stamped out in the industrialized world, is spreading in Nigeria. And health officials say in some cases, it's caused by the vaccine used to fight it.

In July, the World Health Organization issued a warning that this vaccine-spread virus might extend beyond Africa. So far, 124 Nigerian children have been paralyzed this year — about twice those afflicted in 2008.

The polio problem is just the latest challenge to global health authorities trying to convince wary citizens that vaccines can save them from dreaded disease.

What could happen if the sine flu vaccine does the same. If I'm not mistaken, the swine flu vaccine is a live virus.

"This year, the number of polio cases caused by the vaccine has doubled: 124 children have so far been paralyzed, compared to 62 in 2008, out of about 42 million children vaccinated. For every case of paralysis, there are hundreds of other children who don't develop symptoms, but pass on the disease."

When viruses start, they start out slow. It's like doubling each time. 1x2=2x2=4x2=8x2=16 etc. it gets bigger and bigger.

Polios back, we all should be afraid.

The only disease eradicated worldwide is smallpox. Unfortunately the live virus is kept by certain countries. Since immunity to smallpox is no longer in force, if it was released back into the wild it would flare up again.

In certain countries, specific diseases were no longer thought to florish. In the US, TB and other diseases were thought to be well under control. In fact, it is the influx of foreigners that has caused the rise of many illnesses long thought to be tamed.

Any disease eradicated fron a country (Iraq) can always come back in. Smallpox was devistating worldwide so there was a worldwide war against it. Now that we have no immunity against it (vacines do not protect forever) it can be used against us. If combined with another virus (as swine flu has) then it can be disasterous.
It used to be that penicillin was the great destroyer but overused like all protection, the enemy has become immune to it. The more we fight diseases, the stronger they get.
