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.
anecdotal analyses have to do with ingredient listings ??
what is there is there ... no other analyzing necessary.
vaccine drawbacks may be preferrable to many, however, i am not one of them.
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
the complications, long-term treatment and disability from the PPS is more problematic and costly than the polio pandemic ever was.
it was more an answer driven by a profit-margin, not health care or prevention.
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.
has polio been eradicated by vaccine ?? no.
is polio still spread today via OPV vaccine shedding ?? yeppers.
(the link above mentions a Minnesota case believed to originate from a traveler abroad)
same link as above
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.
do try to keep in mind that while prior inflicted persons do require ongoing treatment (those who survived), so do those who develop PPS or any of the
other symptomatic conditions related to the infection/vaccine --> for which there is also, NO cure, just ongoing treatment or shall we just say ...
ETA -- you asked me to explain how healthcare costs would plummet ... what exactly did you ask me to "prove" ??
