    It just happens that a close relative of my Mom died as a direct result of being given Polio Vaccine. Again…. Vaccines never have, DO NOT and never will work.!!! Vaccine… built on a mountain of self serving lies.

    Anyone not familiar with this “brave, maverick doctor”, there is a good summary of her here:


  • snowballinhell

    Bwahahah. Is that the best you’ve got Argus? When you can’t attack the information you have to attack the source. Funny rational wiki. LOL.

  • Dr. TR

    Thank you so much for this insightful presentation.

  • Isn’t it ironic he doesn’t refute any information in the presentation and resorts to name calling … anonymously?

  • Silver

    When You Can’t Answer the Argument, Attack the Credentials of the Person Offering It.

  • Argus

    Ms. Humphries presents anecdotes and her interpretations of cherry-picked partial facts and expects to be believed. Setting aside the fact that anecdotes aren’t evidence, it’s helpful to know about the credibilty of the person making the statements.
    For me, it’s enough to know that she has embraced homeopathy.
    Jeffry, I will remember your comment next time you use the “who do you work for” misdirection to avoid having to answer with evidence to back up something you professed to be truth in one of your articles.

  • Peggy

    Being new to this forum, took the time to read all comments. Dismissing the information based upon ’embracing homeopathy’ seems odd to me. The use of ‘Ms’ rather than her title of doctor did not go without notice. Dr, Humphries is largely credible due to being a nephrologist. That field of practice is far more credible than many others because our kidneys and their function affect every single organ and hormone in our bodies. Having a background in biomedical research and immunology, I can attest to her statements regarding the sloppy science and flawed methodology regarding vaccine studies. Most all lay persons are not learned in how to read and interpret studies, instead relying on a reporters article citing conclusions. Unfortunately, many physicians do not have the time to read the entire study and many are not learned in how to read or interpret a study, again, relying on the conclusions; seldom reading the references. Unless you have access to the specific study to determine if the criteria required for validity, indeed exists, you can not know if the conclusions stated, are valid. Medicine is beginning to embrace homeopathy and CAM. Additionally, some insurance providers are covering CAM. Today, energy healing is being used by several reputable physicians, such as Dr. Oz in their practice of medicine. Since Argus did not specifically post the anecdotal info in his statement, I can’t address. However, will close by asking a question: If vaccines do not cause harm, why is there federal legislation to exempt drug companies from vaccine injury liability?

  • notsofree

    Oh yeah “rationalwiki” is such an unbiased authority. They should rename their site to “gradeschoolnamecallingwiki” You should definitely trust these “baboons”!!


  • Great! I look forward to the day you come out from under the bridge.

  • When the information can’t be refuted scientifically, the default protocol is name calling … that action, in itself, has a name: insecurity.

  • This video is enlightening, very well done

  • All that link is Argus, is deliberate slander, with no actual substance nor merit in any claims made, to back up that personal attack. This is chronically typical of the provaccine side that can’t hold up to the actual facts and in any honesty actually debate the subject matter and information. That’s actually pretty darn pathetic, don’t you think? All you ever do here Argus is maintain your perpetual status of being an in denial of any obvious facts, pain in the butt. Again, I will ask you, please list all of your conflicts of interest?

    While I am at it, here is some food for thought! This should keep you reading for at least 3 minutes, before you come back and spew some more denial of all.
    And one of them is your favorite site.

    The Engineering of ‘Pandemics’

    By A. True Ott, PhD, ND

    Excerpt: As a matter of fact, the American Public in general was so optimistic and HAPPY in 1921, that relatively few people were unhealthy as well. For the first time in decades, hospital beds were empty. The fledgling American Medical Association, formed by John D. Rockefeller just a few years earlier, was worried. Business was sagging.

    Profits from vaccines and drugs were spiraling. Something had to be done, and done immediately. False, faux epidemics of smallpox were created to solve the problem, and keep the Medical Mafia’s cash registers ringing.

  • Just finished watching the Video, blogged it here: http://jennyhatch.com/2013/02/18/polio-anatomy-of-a-hoax-part-1-suzanne-humphries-md/

    One of the BEST overviews I have ever seen. Are you available for interview Suzanne?

    Jenny Hatch

  • Paid Troll. GREAT Video Jeffrey, one of the best!

  • So Argus, you have no faith in homeopathy, which is something that saved far more people than allopathic medicine ever did or could, for example during the so called 1918 flu pandemic, and has been a proven healer in many types of conditions since then. Instead you put your faith in the massively failed halls of so called modern medicine, which in two well done studies is a top runner for the leading cause of death in America. Nice choice.

    Go start educating yourself to some actual reality!

  • Troll (Internet)
    In Internet slang, a troll (pron.: /ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3]

    I have looked into many key historical events; wiki ALWAYS gives the disinformation, read incorrect, version of history. I will not use wiki as a source and suggest you do so also.

    This is an absolutely great and needed video. I have looked long and hard at polio and can assure you it is indeed a deadly scam. Doctor Humphries provided me the KEY new information that Rockefeller Labs worked to produce the most virulent strain of polio in existence, BEFORE the “deadly” polio outbreak of course . Note at that time there were only THREE known strains of polio in existence. The new strain of polio the Rockefeller Labs produced resulted in paralytic polio in 25% of serious polio cases!

    Let us sum up the “Polio Vaccine” Disaster

    The “diphtheria and pertussis vaccines” were used to drive up the occurrences of polio by bring down the immune systems of those “vaccinated”.

    Rockefeller Labs developed a new super virulent (25% paralysis) strain of the polio virus

    “Vaccination” and antibiotics, then new medical modalities, promote polio

    Tonsillectomies. very big after the war, promote polio

    All this caused the incidence of serious paralytic polio to skyrocket

    This caused a demand to “do something” about polio

    Next a “polio vaccine” was made with monkey kidneys known by some people to contain the KNOWN cancer causing SV-40 virus

    Doctor Bernice Eddy of NIH warned that SV-40 caused cancer in primates. She lost her research lab and research position. Those in charge of NIH silenced Doctor Eddy. Why?

    The “cancer causing polio vaccine” was injected into hundreds of millions of poor trusting souls

    Fathers who were “vaccinated” passed the cancer causing SV-40 virus to their offspring

    These offspring passed the SV-40 to their offspring

    These offspring passed the SV-40 to their offspring

    At least 75 strains of the polio virus now exist compared to 3 pre “polio vaccine”

    These new strains of polio have resulted in MANY new diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    The third generation after receiving the “cancer causing polio vaccine” by their
    grandparents is VERY likely to pass the “cancer causing polio vaccine” to their
    offspring ad infinitum. WOW what a bio-weapon this “wonderful polio vaccine” turned out to be..

  • Jim Bob

    Anti-Vaxers should conitnue to consider themselves informed after watching this great YOUTUBE video. Meanwhile, the rest of us normal folk will continue to rely on doctors, scientists, medical journals and other advice given by those with actual medical and scientific expertise.

    I found another YOUTUBE video that some anti-vaxers might find useful:


  • I’ve seen many people use the CDC as a ‘weapon’ in their data but never as a tool:


    There is no doubt in my mind, or anyones for that matter, that polio was not on the decrease (and even if it were, it was not trending towards eradication).

    Pure, simple logic!

  • Vaccines have and DO work… But not in all cases… But well over 90%.

    I am sorry your mum had an adverse reaction and was one of a few who gave her life so we as a populous of Earth can enjoy a life without polio – god rest her soul.

    I am also risking my life with shingles – I had caught chickenpox when I was 13 years old. I missed out as a child. I was never vaccinated against chickenpox – this is a recent vaccination.

    Shingles is far deadlier than chickenpox – generally because of the age group that is concerned. While I’m not quite in the age group yet, my risk has significantly increased since the release of the vaccination for chickenpox.

    For you see, while I may have the natural immunity to chickenpox, the virus that causes shingles is identical. And one way to keep shingles at bay is to come into contact with chickenpox from time to time. So for example around children who catch chickenpox. You don’t have to do it often, but from time to time – and your body reacts when that horrible virus (herpes yuck) rears its ugly head! That means usually you won’t break out in shingles.

    But… This scenario is changing…. If children are vaccinated against chickenpox, and this vaccine is proven effective, then we as adults won’t come into contact with chickenpox and our trained immunity to shingles will become less effective. The risk now is you’ll actually break out in shingles – several times more likely than before the vaccine – this is a serious consequence that could last for as much as 50 years of vaccination.

    But, as I am proving the efficacy of vaccines, which ultimately my statement does, it also suggests I’m one of the willing people who is going to take one of the team and risk shingles in my older life so that the suffering that can occur in chickenpox is lessened by a vaccination that is super effective!

  • Is this the kind of ‘name calling’ and slander you warned me publicly for?

  • Just two weeks ago, in an agricultural weekly, was an article about how, in sheep, polio is a problem of late, due to drought and diminished nutritional quality of feedstocks. Apparently, polio, or a polio, in sheep can be caused by deficiency of thiamine, and/or mineral imbalances, in the diet of sheep. What do you want to be, that this is a cause, or perhaps the cause, of alot of polio in people, especially growing children. What do you want to bet that some new bleach for flour used in breadmaking, or something similar to this, or perhaps bad hybrids, were a cause of the U.S. polio epidemics? A bleach used in flour, banned in the late 50’s, caused nearsightedness in children. Probably something like this stimulated those epidemics. Selenium deficiency can cause cystic fibrosis in monkeys. It can also cause muscular dystrophy in children, and one can find websites in which it is claimed there were doctors curing MD nutritionally in 1953, one year before the MDA formed and has since sucked down the vast majority of charity funds for ‘finding a cure’, without finding a cure. Parents have also cured their own children’s MD, in recent times. Robert Cathcart, MD, cured polio with vitamin C theraphy. Man, there are going to be alot of doctors and pharmaceutical company execs in Hell someday.

  • black flag

    This is the world we live in ,they give people like Al Gore and Barak Insane Obama the Nobel Peace Prize??? One for spreading lies and fear and the other for what? Being the first black President and saying ‘YES WE CAN’, instead he’s turned out to be worse than GW ever was, spent more tax dollars than all of the US Presidents put together!!! And this is the first time I’m hearing about DR Suzanne Humphries ???!!! The Nobel committee must be smoking crack!
