The truth never sleeps.

That’s why it’s 5 a.m. here at TSM headquarters and we’re still up researching something that we were originally only going to mention in passing.
The Organic Prepper.com‘s Daisy Luther wrote an article about how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly admitted that SV40 — a simian virus — had tainted polio vaccines which the CDC estimates were administered to between 10 to 30 million Americans between 1955 to 1963. Luther reported about how this was done in an informational fact sheet published online with otherwise little fanfare.
All told, over 98 million Americans received at least one (or more) doses of polio vaccine during that time.
In her article, Luther offers a cached link to the CDC’s SV40 and polio vaccine information sheet; however, when you attempt to find a current link, the info sheet has now been scrubbed — it no longer currently exists on the CDC’s website.
We at Truthstream Media were curious about this, so we decided to investigate further. Using the magical technology of Internet archiving, we were able to find that not only did the CDC have an info sheet on SV40 and polio vaccines once upon a time, but it also had a whole FAQ on the issue as well.
These pages were only recently taken down this summer, perhaps even because the subject garnered media coverage from alternative journalists like Daisy Luther over at The Organic Prepper.
A screen capture of the CDC’s information sheet shown above claims “The majority of scientific evidence suggests that SV40-contaminated vaccine did not cause cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.”
So only some research results? Interesting statement considering that back in 2002, a whopping 61 reports from 49 different laboratories from all over the world were detecting SV40 monkey virus strains in many different types of human cancers including mesothelioma, lymphoma, brain and bone tumors.
In fact, only three studies failed to produce similar results then. Two of these were reportedly compromised by two of the main researchers involved: Dr. Howard Strickler and Dr. Keerti Shah.
Shah was under contract by Dr. Strickler to perform SV40 studies, and it was revealed later in a deposition that Strickler gave Shah the positive controls and allowed him to adjust his methods for SV40 detection after the study had begun, thus according to Shah’s testimony, Strickler comprised what should have been a blind study.
An excerpt from the book The Virus and the Vaccine: The True Story of a Cancer-Causing Monkey Virus, Contaminated Polio Vaccine, and the Millions of Americans Exposed by Debbie Bookchin and Jim Schumacher.
Dr. Shah had also apparently completed consulting work for pharmaceutical giants Merck (a company behind some of the polio vaccines which were tainted with SV40 back in the 1950s) and Pfizer as well, as noted in the book excerpt above.
In addition, a 2003 House of Representatives Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness hearing on “The SV40 Virus: Has Tainted Polio Vaccine Caused an Increase in Cancer” raised some serious questions about Dr. Strickler’s findings which only claimed less than one percent of cancer cases studied had SV40 present — a claim that stood out against a backdrop of researchers from all over the world confirming SV40 in cancer tumors again and again and ultimately finding that SV40 did, in fact, cause cancer.
During the hearing, Burton asked:
Well, Dr. Strickler evidently has done some research on this, and he showed that in 1996 there was no evidence that the SV-40 was in any tumors and was the cause of these cancers. And in 2001 he said the same thing. Now, how do you account for the fact that your scientist, he was working for you I think at the time, couldn’t find any trace of SV-40 tumors when eminent scientists that I just mentioned to you and many others from 60 different laboratories around the world found many cases of its existence? Why is there that inconsistency?
Burton also mentioned that Dr. Strickler had obvious Big Pharma ties, including to Merck and Wyeth which both developed polio vaccines used during the 1960s.
You know, this Dr. Strickler, he — one of the favored labs that he uses for the tests that he does is funded in large part and does a lot of work with Merck, Pfizer, and Wyeth, and while that doesn’t apparently look like a conflict of interest, it certainly does raise some questions.
Indeed. Under “disclosure of potential conflicts of interest” on studies done in subsequent years on human papillomavirus (HPV) for example, Dr. Strickler has listed himself as “consultant/advisory board, Merck and GSK”. (Side note: Gardasil and Cervarix, the two HPV vaccines currently approved for sale on the market, are manufactured by Merck and GlaxoSmithKline respectively.)
Interestingly, during the hearing, Burton also asked about Strickler’s position as a consultant with the FDA. Notably, the FDA was listed on the now-defunct CDC information page as “the federal government lead agency in answering questions relating to SV40 in polio vaccine.” Representatives from neither the CDC nor the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) attended the Congressional hearing on this matter.
Obviously, looking into this document brings up many more questions than answers, and more research needs to be done to connect the myriad dots here.
Even more alarming, a 2001 San Fransisco Chronicle article discusses the fact that a second, slower-growing SV40 virus was found in 1955 polio vaccines recovered from a retired public health official and tested in 1999 — a different strain that would not have been picked up by the tests used to find SV40 in the tainted vaccines back in the 1960s. This shocking discovery led the researcher who found it to warn:
It was possible…that this second strain of SV40 had been evading manufacturers’ screening procedures for years — and infecting vaccine recipients after 1962.
The CDC information sheet even brought up linkages to studies of SV40 potentially being passed from mother to infant during pregnancy, but in the end the organization’s position seemed to remain that ‘further research is needed’ in this area. Of course, that was back when the CDC had those pages up, and they are no longer live.
Regardless, nothing has been done to hold any of the pharmaceutical giants responsible for this monstrosity liable for their actions, and the companies continue to produce vaccines administered to Americans every single day.
Whatever master agenda could be at work here, it is amazing that the American and global public continue to trust their bodies to the same science that ‘accidentally’ contaminated tens of millions of people vaccinated for polio with a monkey virus found time and again in cancerous tumors. The presence of SV40 – which Merck vaccine scientist Maurice Hilleman joked in the video below caused tumors – has not officially been recognized by the government as having caused all these cancers (again, the CDC has continued to affirm ‘further research is needed’).
As this strain of monkey virus has consistently been found present in many types of cancerous cells in people all over the world at this point, the significance of such a correlation cannot be denied.
Why are the same industry and government players allowed to continue to play both God and doctor on your children? On your family, neighbors and fellow human beings? Why has no one been held accountable for these crimes of negligence, or worse?
