The ‘Unknown’ About Polio Vaccine: SV40 and Cancer

After half a century, the 108th U.S. Congress House of Representatives Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness finally held a hearing September 10, 2003, on the simian virus (SV40) that was included in the original polio vaccine produced and administered to children in the 1950s and 1960s.

Candidly, the first page of the transcript for the hearing states:

There is no dispute that millions of Americans received polio vaccines that were contaminated with the virus called Simian Virus 40, or SV–40. There also is no dispute that SV–40 is capable of causing cancer, but there is a major dispute as to how many Americans may have received the contaminated vaccine, with estimates ranging from 4 million to 100 million people. There is also a major dispute as to when the polio vaccine supply got cleaned up. In addition, nobody knows how many people got sick or died because of the contaminated vaccines.

In his opening statement, Subcommittee Chairman Dan Burton reiterated:

But there is a major dispute as to how many Americans may have received the contaminated vaccine with estimates ranging from 4 million to 100 million. There is also a major dispute as to when the polio vaccine supply got cleaned-up. In addition, nobody knows how many people got sick or died because of the contaminated vaccines.

One of the experts who testified, James Goedert, MD, said:

The virus was discovered in 1960 in rhesus macaque monkey kidney cells that were used in the production of the original Salk and Sabin polio vaccines (1). Since the mass immunization program for polio began in 1955, before the discovery of the virus, contaminated vaccine lots were inadvertently used for the first few years of the program.

Dr. Goedert went on to say that, “…no SV40 has been found in U.S. polio vaccine lots tested after 1972.

He further added that “The Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences issued a report in October 2002 (50), which concluded that scientific ‘evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship between SV40-containing polio vaccines and cancer.’ (p.11, Executive Summary). The committee stated that the ‘biological evidence is of moderate strength that SV40 exposure could lead to cancer in humans under natural conditions’ and that ‘biological evidence is of moderate strength that SV40 exposure from the polio vaccine is related to SV40 infection in humans.’” (p. 11, Executive Summary)

Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center, testified at that hearing and here’s part of what she had to say:

The story you’re about to hear involves a pharmaceutical company which used monkeys to make polio vaccine, government health agencies responsible for making sure the vaccine was not contaminated with monkey viruses, and individuals who are now dying from cancerous tumors that contain a monkey virus which appears to have contaminated that polio vaccine. At the heart of this story is a violation of the public trust and the informed consent ethic.

Ms. Fisher’s last sentence still holds true today: At the heart of the vaccine/vaccination safety issue is “a violation of the public trust and informed consent ethic.” Informed consent is becoming more problematic—if not totally lacking—because dozens more vaccines are being mandated by health agencies and an irresponsibly administered U.S. CDC and FDA that parrot vaccine makers’ pseudo-science about neurotoxins and other poisons in vaccines. The SV40 issue should make everyone question IF vaccine makers really know what they are doing. And still, parents are mandated by state laws to have their children harmed and/or killed from unproven or even unknown ingredients—as SV40 proved—in vaccines.

Furthermore, Ms. Fisher pointed out that

There is frank admission that the limitations of technology and lack of scientific knowledge means there can be no guarantee that vaccines will not be contaminated with substances that could prove harmful to humans 1 day.

Nothing is more indicative of Ms. Fisher’s statement than all the foreign DNA that is used in the manufacture of vaccines now in the 21st century. According to CDC’s Adjuvant, Excipient, and Medium Summary, there is bovine and bovine calf, chick, human diploid tissue (aborted human fetuses), African green monkey, mouse brain, and Rhesus monkey just to mention a few. Just recently insects were added to the mix.

During testimony, Stanley P. Kops, Esquire, presented stunning charts of facts about SV40 and challenged the polio vaccine maker to dispute them with pharma’s corroborating facts or evidence. Kops’s presentation also noted that the vaccine maker did not follow the mandatory Code of Federal Regulations, plus he supplied language from a corporate interoffice memo stating that, that specific vaccine maker did not do the proper tests for extraneous agents or neurovirulence. Mr. Kops apparently acquired much of the facts/data during the discovery process in lawsuits where he represented damaged clients in court.

In 2000 Attorney Kops’s article, “Oral Polio Vaccine and Human Cancer: A Reassessment of SV40 as a Contaminant Based upon Legal Documents” was published in Anticancer Research, pages 4745-49.

Also testifying, Adi F. Gazdar, MD, said “…more than 60 laboratories world wide have documented the presence of SV40 in human tumors…” “The biological evidence is strong that SV40 is a cancer causing virus.

The committee, after hearing testimony, recommended that the appropriate federal agencies develop a Vaccine Contamination Prevention and Response Plan.

The revelation that SV40—a cancer-causing virus—was in polio vaccines for numerous years without apparent detection or concern by the vaccine maker, leads one to believe that vaccine manufacturing may be nothing short of a crapshoot. Throw it together and get it out in the marketplace as soon as possible along with media spin touting that it will prevent a disease.

Sadly, the polio vaccine is not the only vaccine with problems. Just about every vaccine on the market today is problematic insofar as it contains neurotoxins and other poisons further compounded by foreign DNA that is syringed into an infant, toddler, teenager, adult, and senior citizen without much regard for adverse reactions. Too many vaccines in the past have ruined many lives with Guillain Barré Syndrome, a paralyzing adverse reaction to vaccines. Currently there is scientific talk about DNA from aborted fetuses being implicated in infant adverse reactions.

The CDC’s VAERS reports document thousands of serious adverse reactions to vaccines, and no one seems to be connecting the dots on these ticking time bombs. Do we have to wait another fifty years to hear the facts? That leads one to think it must be deliberate because they really can’t be that damn dumb.

  • Thank you for this important story! It shows in my opinion three things:

    1.There is no accountability whatsoever when things go wrong with vaccination
    2. The majority of people are brainwashed morons devoid of a fully functoning brain and a
    working memory
    3. Vaccination is an organised criminal enterprise

    Over 50 years ago, the New Zealand so-called health authorities bought a lot of polio vaccines from Canada they knew was cheap because it was so badly contaminated with SV 40 monkey virus that it had been banned from use in America. The health authorities then told parents on the consent forms that the vaccine was “well tested and harmless”! Hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders were contaminated with this carcinogenic virus, and now we have a cancer epidemic. Coincidence?

    It is similarly unlikely that anyone will be held accountable if years from now, girls who were given the Gardasil shots were to be found sterile and suffering from all manner of cancers, due to having been injected with this disgusting genetically engineered vaccine.

    History shows that those who don’t learn from history are bound to repeat it. Unfortunately, history also shows that people don’t learn anything from history. Hence, the insanity continues…

  • Very interesting story. Very insightful. Just goes to show what people are getting injected into their bodys.

  • Sandy L

    An interesting and most relevant article.

    It is highly likely that vaccines have contributed towards the explosion in cancer cases since the 1950’s.

    Vaccine promoters do not know what vaccines contain. In fact, nobody does, not even experts. With time, more accurate analytical and expensive methods are developed which result in new and unexpected findings regarding the presence of substances in vaccines.

    The Simian SV40 cancer causing virus from monkeys, which was discovered in the polio vaccine and which may be the cause of millions of cancer cases, was apparently an unexpected discovery.

    Recently, pig DNA was found in the rotavirus vaccine:
    “European Medicines Agency Confirms That Presence Of Unexpected Viral DNA In Live Attenuated Vaccines Does Not Raise Public Health Concerns”.

    Note the word “unexpected”. The statement that this “does not raise public health concerns” may well be disputed because many thousands of people all over the world are extremely concerned regarding this issue.

    It is normal to see in package inserts that a vaccine has not been tested for cancer causing properties. It is shocking that this is not a strict requirement specified by authorities.

    Vaccine manufacturers are naturally not actively interested in testing and possibly discovering unpleasant facts about their products. The attitude appears to be that if a problem is not apparent, then it does not exist.

    This reminds about the man who went fishing. He tried a couple of times, but no luck. So he wrote an official report which stated: “In this water there are no fish”!

    Great eye opener. Thank you, Catherine. I’ll be posting this later at the revealing article at CBS.

    As we can see they have know this for a very long time but that didn’t stop the greed & ignorance that’s harming & killing mankind.

    I’m posting this at Sharyl Attkisson’s article from CBS along with a few other eye openers to go with the mountain of fact & evidence placed there, already. All the proof there can be copied, saved & utilized to fight deception to stop the cover up in it’s tracks.

    This great exposure this news reporter opened up is the first time I’ve seen our side kick butt to the point of no return without censorship from media & closing the comments once we start making too much sense.

    Major breakthrough here for truth>


    Add what you have to bring to our table. When enough of us speak out & become activists, the sooner we bring the children in from harm.

  • Erwin,

    As you so adroitly mentioned, the *science* of vaccinology is merely a semantics game. For example, a scientist or doctor tells a parent the virus of a *lifesaving* vaccine has been *purified* and the contents therefore are *safe and effective* … and the *benefits outweigh the risks*.

    How many parents in their right mind would knowingly give their child a vaccine contaminated with cancer made from blended monkey testicles and kidneys?!?

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Thank you to all for your insightful comments relative to my article. I enjoy having people think for themselves. I’d just like to share with my readers that my next article to post on VacTruth should be equally revealing. I believe in “The truth shall set you free.” Again, thanks for your comments.

    Not only Americans, but Russians (who never had a polio outbreak), and Africans who did not suffer from paralysis at all.

  • Suzanne, that is a great point! Many millions of Russians received the Oral Polio Vaccine, and that specific vaccine causes paralysis as well…

  • Désirée Röver, the Netherlands

    Are we all dense, or what?
    How can you ever filter out a contaminating virus (or bacteriophage) from a concoction in which you want to keep the virus intended for the vaccine? These microbes are all more or less the same size…

    Vaccination has been a lie since the day that Edward Jenner (NOT a physician) poisoned the human genome with animal DNA and RNA by way of his horsegrease/cowpox brew to ‘protect’ against smallpox — which, by the way, are two complete different entities!

    Also, polio more often is being caused by a combination of pesticides and radiation — no virus whatsoever!
    So now that Fukushima has started — and continually is — poisoning the globe, expect polio to rear its ugly head again.
    Read how Frederic Klenner completely healed patients with polio paralysis (some already on life support) with megadoses of intravenous vitamin C (sodium ascorbate). http://www.orthomed.com/polio.htm

    You might want to listen to my radio show with dr. Thomas Levy, author of the book ‘Curing the Uncurable, Vitamin C, Infecious Diseases and Toxins’: http://www.argusoogradio.org/nl/2011/01/gezond-en-wel-–-23-januari-2011/

    After 25 years of research it is my conclusion that nothing in Western medicine is what they say it is. Everyday is opposite day, as Patrick Jordan says, the author of ‘ICD-999, the Chronic Serum Sickness Postulate’, the best explanation af what vaccines really do to us. http://www.cafepress.com/icd999

  • Drrevlynn

    I have had cancer 8 times because of a tainted polio vaccine which contained the SV40 virus. I have danced with cancer now 35 years because of teh govenments failed vaccine policies. I should sue the pants off them…

  • Drrevlynn

    Unfortunately I already knew this and sat in those hearings with Congressman Dan Burton. I testified as the US Autism Ambassador… sad really that people just don’t get it. The government is not trying to stop anything with vaccines. They are lining you with diseases and viruses and can trigger them when ever they want and they do. I did not walk 8 dances with cancer because any cell was in my body before they vaccinated me with it and that is a fact. Doctors don’t even try to lie to me anymore. To late for that. I got to wise over the years. I know what cancer is, who creates it, how much they make off of it, and their whole dirty secert. I am now telling my story it is time the whole truth comes out. If they want to lie then I will tell the truth. I have 35 years experience dealing with cancer. [email protected]

    Catherine – great article! One question though – at the end, you say that the government were going to establish a “Vaccine Contamination Prevention and Response Plan”. Was this ever done and what was the result? I certainly don’t see any less contamination in vaccines. In fact, as we see with the HPV vaccine, known contamination is ignored or downplayed by the same government agencies we’ve charged with keeping us safe!
