my primary outward symptom is Hidradenitis Suppurativa. I don't have episodes as bad as others, but it has been going on for about 17 years now. I am told it should subside in the next 7 or 8 years.
A real life biblical plague.

Do you think this related to this as well as we are constantly being bombarded by how successful the polio vaccine is ,but this seems to show the opposite.
Yet, it's from Natural News. So you have to assume that it's either been written from a standpoint of total ignorance, or it's being written to be misleading.
This article's no exception. I especially like the part where the author says "Some have argued that NPAFB and other polio-like conditions are actually just different kinds of polio which were given separate classifications to enable authorities to claim victory over polio". Who is "some"? Ah, yes, the other guys around the water cooler at Natural News. No doubt they do. When you see the author of a magazine or news article use an unattributed "some say" or "it has been said" it means "this is my opinion and I'm weasel wording it in"
But if you dive into the source articles and keep going, what you'll find is that there are over 60 enteroviruses. Among them, poliovirus. Poliovirus is known for causing flaccid paralysis. But the other enteroviruses can do this as well. They're not polio, and they don't often do this. But your kid gets hand, foot and mouth disease, otherwise known as Coxsackie, and they probably had it if you've got kids, that's an enterovirus. Coxsackie generally causes your kids to be miserable and have a nasty rash. But like other enteroviruses, it can cause paralysis. Polio vaccine won't work against coxsackie, because they're a different virus. It's not "another polio virus", it's something in the same family but it's not polio.
In the case of the cluster of paralyzed kids in California, they were known to have had an enterovirus before the paralysis. So what you likely had was a mutated non-polio enterovirus like Coxsackie that got a few kids in a small locale and then died out.
But it sounds more EEEEVVVILLLL if you ignore the fact-y bits and make it all sinister, so that's what Natural News went with. NN is about as believable as Sorcha Faal, IMHO.
Doctors don't change the name, the scientist do...
All above are same things... mutated. But you may call them Swinflu, Birdflu, Icecream Flu w/e.
They get named just like Mother name's not the same as daughter's name.
Article shows very little polio in recent times in India yet 44000 adverse reactions from polio.Is this justified and humane?
