Cancer, Aids, and Vaccinations

Is there a link between cancer and the polio vaccine? There is a good chance that there is, according to a Baylor University study released on February 18, 1999 and published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. At the time, the announcement sent shockwaves throughout the medical establishment and caused a great deal of public alarm. After all, who hasn’t had at least one polio shot?
But this wasn’t new knowledge. In 1987, a San Antonio physician, Dr. Eva Snead (1942-2008), stumbled across information linking vaccines to a host of diseases from AIDS and leukemia to other forms of cancer while doing research for a book on AIDS. For her efforts in trying to warn the public, she was vilified by her medical peers, ridiculed by government officials, and ignored by the major media. Even a popular radio talk host, a personal friend, was reluctant to put her on the air until the Baylor story broke.
It was while doing the initial research for her book at the University of Texas Health Science Center library in 1987 that Dr. Snead discovered how the viruses associated with these dreaded diseases are spread. The same evidence convinced her that there was an active cover-up within the federal government and the medical/scientific communities. In 1992, she published her findings in a hefty two volume work titled Some Call it AIDS, I Call It Murder.
The foremost virologists studying AIDS, Drs. Robert Gallo and Luke Montaignard, agree that it is a virus from the African green monkey that causes AIDS. They have designated this virus HIV for human immunodeficiency virus. Another virus carried by the African green monkey is SV-40, or simian virus 40. Its clinical manifestations in laboratory animals are identical to those produced by HIV. In other words, SV-40 causes symptoms similar to AIDS. It is also linked to tumor growth and birth defects. Dr. Janet Butel of the Baylor College of Medicine, the lead author of the Baylor study, stated, “I feel strongly that research is warranted to determine how common human infections by SV40 may be, and what factors might predispose individuals to SV40-related tumors.”
