The WHO's Global Polio "Emergency"

Did you hear? The World Health Organization declared that the spread of polio is an international health emergency.Megan Heimer, NHE, JD, ND--Activist Post

You can’t possibly have missed this. I don’t have a t.v. and somehow I found out about this crisis. Polio is all over the news which I find completely ironic considering it was mumps last week, measles the week before, chicken pox, and whooping cough before that. There’s a theme here…clearly. Next week it will be Hep B, tetanus, or maybe anthrax? I’ve read the articles and I’ve seen the pictures…like this one from the BBC’s website (which may have led to a silent scream inside my head).


Here’s a statement taken from the BBC about the current “outbreak:”
The WHO recorded 417 cases of polio worldwide for the whole of 2013. For 2014, it had already recorded 68 cases by 30 April – up from 24 in the same period last year. [...] The virus is transmitted through contaminated food and water, and multiplies in the intestine.”
