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.
The oral polio vaccine used in Nigeria and elsewhere contains a mild version of the live virus. Children who have been vaccinated pass the virus into the water supply through urine or feces. Other children who then play in or drink that water pick up the vaccine's virus, which gives them some protection against polio.

from all my research on the threat of vaccines i noticed that the only recent cases of polio have been caused by the vaccine.
unfortunate that so many children had to be negatively affected because people can't do a little research or use a little common sense.
but hey, thank god they didn't get polio from some random, unvaccinated stranger.
