Polio Fears - Part 1
Another fear tactic arrives: polio.
On August 24, 2022, an article entitled, “New York counties gear up to fight a polio outbreak among the unvaccinated.” What did the article reveal?
The last time there was community transmission of polio in the U.S. was 1979. The Americas were declared polio free in 1994. Though it's just ONE CASE of paralysis at the moment, public health officials — both locally and nationally — are taking the news very seriously... "Even a single case of paralytic polio represents a public health emergency in the United States," the CDC declared in a recent report. (emphasis added)
THE REALITY OF ‘POLIO’
What are the first things that pop into your head when you hear the word POLIO?” I’ll bet that most of you thought of at least one of the following:
Kids with braces
Iron lung machines – (which by the way, were the precursor to today’s routine ventilators)
The March of Dimes campaign (if you’re a bit older!)
The word “polio” has led to multigenerational indoctrination – a horrible fear of PARALYSIS.
Think about it: polio was a national crisis in the 1950s. The polio vaccines were released in 1955. Most new parents today were born between 1980 and 2000. And yet, they are filled with the same fear at the word “polio” as parents were nearly 70 years ago.
To this very day, people THINK polio is a synonym for paralysis.
