50 years later we're ingesting flouride, pesticides, preservatives, every chemical in the book at our own will. If something like this happened today it wouldn't even matter. Those of us who live past 40 in our day are bound to get cancer.
The CDC is only just 67 years old now (It was officially launched on 1 July 1946).
The Polio vaccine was first announced to the world on April 12, 1955 and was first licensed for use in humans in 1962.
The SV40 virus was only discovered in 1960. Vaccines given after 1963 did NOT contain the virus.
No oral vaccine ever contained SV40, it was only in the injected form.
Of 98 million doses, only 10-30 million had the SV40 virus, so the headline is just plain wrong.
SV40 virus has been detected in a number of cancer biopsies. This does not necessarily mean that it caused those cancers. 100% of those biopsies contained water but no-one is saying that water causes cancer.
Studies comparing the statistics of those potentially affected to those that are unaffected do not show any significant differences in cancer rates.
In short, the CDC has done a wonderful job of nearly eliminating Polio.
The linked article errs to the point of being totally false and overblown.

The article in your link references a cached CDC page but I could find it nowhere. Can you link it?
I'd like to see it from the horse's mouth.
Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine Fact Sheet
SV40 is a virus found in some species of monkey.
SV40 was discovered in 1960. Soon afterward, the virus was found in polio vaccine.
More than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine from 1955 to 1963
when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 10–30
million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of vaccine.
SV40 virus has been found in certain types of cancer in humans, but it has not been determined
that SV40 causes these cancers.
The majority of scientific evidence suggests that SV40-contaminated vaccine did not cause
cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.
Polio vaccines being used today do not contain SV40. All of the current evidence indicates that
polio vaccines have been free of SV40 since 1963.
In the 1950s, rhesus monkey kidney cells, which contain SV40 if the animal is infected, were used
in preparing polio vaccines. Because SV40 was not discovered until 1960, no one was aware in
the 1950s that polio vaccine could be contaminated.
SV40 was found in the injected form of the polio vaccine (IPV), not the kind given bymouth (OPV)
Not all doses of IPV were contaminated. It has been estimated that 10–30 million people actually
received a vaccine that contained SV40.
Some evidence suggests that receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine may increase risk of
cancer. However, the majority of studies done in the U.S. and Europe which compare persons who
received SV40-contaminated polio vaccine with those who did not have shown no causal
relationship between receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine and cancer.

Dr. Mary's Monkey How the Unsolved Murder of a Doctor, a Secret Laboratory in New Orleans and Cancer-Causing Monkey Viruses are Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and Emerging Global Epidemics By Edward T. Haslam Evidence of top-secret medical experiments and coverups of clinical blunders The 1964 murder of a nationally known cancer researcher sets the stage for this gripping exposé of medical professionals enmeshed in covert government operations over the course of three decades. Following a trail of police records, FBI files, cancer statistics, and medical journals, this revealing book presents evidence of a web of medical secret-keeping that began with the handling of evidence in the JFK assassination and continued apace, sweeping doctors into coverups of cancer outbreaks, contaminated polio vaccine, the arrival of the AIDS virus, and biological weapon research using infected monkeys.
This book actually outlines a conspiracy story about the polio virus , cancer and monkeys.
Worth a read for the aspiring L.H.Oswald conspiracist.
A lot of the vaccines, medicines and techniques used are akin to fixing a car by throwing random parts at the engine from 20 feet away in the dark. Sometimes something sticks and it's called a solution. The incidental results are often worse than the solution that was attained.
Secrets and lies make the world go round.
