what does anecdotal analyses have to do with ingredient listings ??

Anecdotal analyses do not prove anything. Vaccines and their drawbacks are preferable to pandemics. Note that polio victims of the late 40s still require medical treatment while those who had the vaccine and remained polio free do not require treatment related to polio.
wrong again ... if the polio vaccine is sooooo effective, why are we having an explosion of post-polio syndrome and other complications which are directly related to the vaccine ??

Most people vaccinated against polio have no adverse reactions. But the oral vaccine containing live viruses that are weakened can cause vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) in a very small percentage of those immunized or their close contacts since vaccinated persons can spread the vaccine virus to others. Immunocompromised people can shed vaccine virus in their feces for many years, with the virus becoming neurovirulent (capable of causing paralysis). Oral vaccine polioviruses can also spread from person to person in communities with low immunization levels. People who have had VAPP, whether related to vaccine virus or not, can also develop PPS.

The virus isolates have been determined to have been derived from an OPV strain, probably acquired from a traveler to a region where the OPV is still being used in an effort to eliminate poliomyelitis worldwide.
