Since the official eradication of Polio in India, there has been an enormous rise in “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received.” Even newer research attempted to gene sequence these NPEVs (Non-Polio Enteroviruses) and found Echoviruses, Coxsackie viruses, etc. We cannot vaccinate for any of these…yet, but even if we do, mother nature has an infinite supply of pathogenic microbes. Right now we know of at least 26 Coxsackie viruses and over 30 Echoviruses. There are also a number of newer enteroviruses that are coming in to fill in the blanks.
It is time we rethink our strategies of vaccination. If one considers the eradication of Polio to be an example of the success of a vaccine, we have a problem. We apparently got a few years reprieve only to be replaced by organisms that are twice as deadly and causing the same awful paralysis. If we read most of the vaccine literature, you see plenty of talk about how successful our vaccination program has been for polio, but no one talks about the fact that the definition of success is pretty weak. In reality, none of us care about any virus, be it Polio or the Hantavirus, what we care about is not getting paralyzed or hemorrhaging to death.
By the way, Chinese herbs have been found to inhibit many enteroviruses, including Coxsackie, Echovirus and Polio.
