    Simian virus 40 (SV40) was first identified by Ben Sweet and Maurice Hilleman in 1960 when they found that between 10-30% of polio vaccines in the US were contaminated with SV40. In 1962, Bernice Eddy described the cancer-inducing function of SV40 in hamsters injected with monkeys cells infected with the virus in a peer-reviewed paper. She had been aware of the problem since 1954, when she tested the first polio vaccines from five different cmpanies while working at the National Insitutes of Health but her findings were ignored by then-NIH director William Sebrell.

    Many believe that part of the current cancer epidemic that we’re seeing today is a result of polio vaccines tainted with SV40 and administered to 98 million American children between 1955 and 1961. This is what doctors Fisher, Weber and Carbone at Chicago’s Loyola University determined to find out in 1999 and they published their findings in the peer-reviewed paper, “Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine.”

    The authors analyzed the incidence of brain tumors, bone tumors, and mesotheliomas from 1973-1993 and the possible relationship of these tumors with the administration of the SV40-contaminated vaccine. They found increased rates of intracranial cancers (37%), bone cancers (26%), other bone tumors (34%) and mesothelioma (90%) among those exposed as compared to the unexposed birth cohort.

    • I don’t know if they’re on to something or not. I had the polio vaccine shot back in elementary school in the 1950’s and I’ve had no cancer problems since. All my friends in the same age bracket have not contracted any type of cancer. We had all the vaccine shots back then with none of the problems associated with vaccines many kids have now. Of course, back then, the vaccines didn’t have all the additives that they put in modern vaccines and we didn’t have so many in so short a time period.

      All my research has shown that the cancer and heart problems epidemic in modern times is the result of all the toxins in so much of our food and in the air we breath and water we drink. Plus, unhealthy life styles of poor diet and lack of exercise.

      I hope everyone is watching the “Broken Brain” series hosted by Dr. Mark Hyman and signed up under Alexandra. They’re on episode 5 today. Lots of diet, supplement and life style tips for a top notch functioning brain coming up in the coming episodes.

    • Vaccination, as a propaganda Strategy, is used to Medicalize the population….To assert that good health is fundamentally a Medical matter??? It isn’t …Health and Life are not Medical Functions

    • Not just SV40 but any virus exposed to radiation may mutate into cancer. So why is radiation still the “standard of care” treatment when a virus is detected in cancer cells.

    • I received that polio vaccine as a child, and knew immediately there was something wrong, although of course, my teacher, school nurse, principal and parents ignored my complaints. It wasn’t until I was in my 40s and seeing a doctor of Integrated Medicine who did extensive blood testing to determine the cause of my fibromyalgia, and who knew about the SV40 that my suspicions were confirmed. Fortunately, I was already doing a lot of juicing, raw, organic and sprouted foods, supplements and most importantly, a daily smoothie containing a pound or more of fresh aloe vera gel. I’ll be 70 my next birthday, and still going strong. There were studies done at University of Texas on patients with severe cases of cancer and AIDS who were given fresh aloe vera gel daily. Many recovered. Of course, the pharmaceutical companies don’t want the public to know about that, so the results were not widely published, but you can read about it here:…ALOE_VERA…/ALOE-VERA-The-miracle-plant

    • We talked about this “discovery” in 1968, when I was a graduate student in the group in the U of Toronto, Anatomy Dept. where we conducted research in the “Friend Virus” (that was linked to the development of leukemia in our research mouse colony) and stem cells. The simian SV40 virus was not well known then and was by some considered to be a “helper virus” that could be involved in “zippering together” DNA that had been fragmented for the vaccine and otherwise considered safe as an antigen introduced by the vaccine to elicit an immune response with the intention to confer immunity against the polio virus.

      • Wow! Not so friendly then. I always wondered if Salk’s vaccine was so great, why we switched to Sabin’s oral vaccine.

    • This looks like an interesting article but I have a question. My grandmother passed in 1977 from breast cancer,,,,,,,born in 1905….my mother passed in 1978….breast cancer….born in 1925….I had breast cancer in 1989 and remember getting the shot in 1955,,,,I am a survivor of this disease. One of my daughters had the gene test and we have the gene….so where does that put us in this up coming report???

      • I would say the idea that genes condemn anyone to something like cancer..should be highly questioned. Much evidence now about what is called epigenetics..genes can change with our thoughts! And getting so-called prophylactic surgery such as mastectomy..bad idea, as cancer is systemic..needs addressing holistically. Cutting one part off won’t eliminate the toxicity that underlies will simply express elsewhere, as Angelina Jolie discovered. Learn about holistic approaches to detoxifying the body.

      • SV40 was found to be present in stocks of the injected form of the polio vaccine in use between 1955 and 1963, so It’s possible that you were exposed to the SV40 virus from your polio shot. I think I saw that up to 30% of the supplies were tainted with SV40. But if your breast cancer was in 1989 and you haven’t had a recurrence in all this time, it appears that you’re very resistant to cancer. As for the BRCA gene, I just saw an article about a study published in The Lancet, that the BRCA tests do NOT have the power to determine breast cancer survival outcomes:
