Simian 40 Virus (Monkey Virus) The scientific medical community must accept the fact that the Simian 40 Virus that was introduced through the Polio Vaccine back in the 50's, is, in deed the base cause of many of today's cancers and immune deficiency diseases. So that once this argument is accepted, positive research can be done in finding a way to kill this virus, kill the cancer it has caused, and rebuilds the immune system, thus finding the real cure for cancer. Between 1952 and 1955 many Researchers including Jonas Salk were frantically trying to perfect a vaccination to stop the horrible effects of the deadly Polio Virus that had swept the Nation as well as the world. The vaccine had to be developed in live tissue, more specifically, a fresh kidney that most closely resembled that of a human's kidney. As the Rhesus Monkey from India was already so abundantly used in laboratories, not much debate went into the choice of subject. Even though the monkey is dirty, temperamental, and it’s bite has already proven to be deadly, the rhesus monkey’s kidney was the tissue used to grow the Polio vaccine. The kidney was extracted from the monkey while still alive, then injected with the live Polio Virus where it was grown and tested. The monkey’s kidney was full of unknown viruses, while totally safe for monkeys, still harmful when injected into the human’s blood stream. The researchers, especially Jonas Salk, in his haste to perfect his vaccine and get it out into the market place for the public, chose to ignore this knowledge, or play it down as harmless. As a result, starting in 1955, millions of grade school age children were injected with Salk’s Polio Vaccine along with Simian 40 virus or as it was called in the first place; Monkey B virus (Klueger). The Simian 40 Virus was discovered first by Bernice Eddy PhD, of the National Institute of Health (NIH). She found it by studying the minced up kidney from the rhesus monkey. In her research, she saw that the cells would all die without any reason. So, in further research, she injected it into hamsters. Eventually every hamster injected developed cancer. Later, the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. proved and rediscovered the same virus. Doctors Benjamin Sweet and Maurice Hilleman, and the Merck scientists named the virus The Simian 40 Virus, SV40 for short. The Vacuolating Virus was another name for SV40. They acknowledged that this virus, among many was indeed found in the kidney of the rhesus monkey. Also, that the possibility of the virus being injected into millions of people along with the polio vaccinations was very real. Many studies in the early 60’s proved that SV40 caused brain cancers and other cancers in animals and suspected to cause cancer in human tissue as well (Michael E. Horwin). In 1960, Doctors Benjamin Sweet and Maurice Hilleman, the Merck scientists who named the virus SV40, published their findings raising the question of other simian viruses that could have gotten into the vaccine that has already been injected into millions of people. This article further states that in 1962, Dr. Bernice Eddy published her findings in the journal produced by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology that caused her to loose her place as researcher of the Simian 40 Virus. Further studies by other researchers proved in the future again, that the virus caused cancerous tumors in human tissue. He warns not to trust the NIC National Institute of Health. He could see that they did not want the public to know about this (Monteith). Because of the governments refusal to be honest with the public about SV40, many myths and half truths have been circulated through out the years by people who have experienced the effects of the virus, people who do not necessarily have any medical or scientific training, yet they know something is wrong and know that it has something to do with the Polio Vaccine. Some outlandish, some not so outlandish, such as the personal account given by Hanna Kroeger who became an herbologist and spiritual consultant, wrote in her journal her personnel account of the effects of the first polio vaccine that was administered back in the late 50’s. As she recalls through her experiences of a time when the epidemic of Polio caused the world to panic and how almost all social functions had ceased. She expounds on how the many ailments, strange sicknesses, and even mental illnesses, which were never previously heard of, kept showing up in the children after they received the polio vaccinations. Hanna tells the heart-wrenching story of how sick her very own little girl was after she was inoculated. The doctors couldn’t help her and even threatened to put her in an institution if Hanna brought her back again. It was heartbreaking to read how she finally lost her little girl. Hanna indicates that the descendants of the baby boomer generation of the 50’s and 60’s, better known as the pot-smoking hippies, is what had seemed to her, to help alleviate the torment of their excruciating pain. In all, Hanna explains how devastating the retrovirus introduced into the blood stream through the first Polio Vaccines has been through this generation (Lydecker 89). During the first 30 years government officials have insisted that there is no evidence that the simian virus is harmful to humans at all. However, starting in the 80’s, more and more medical researchers, through scientific studies have been finding the virus in rare brain, bone, and lung related cancerous diseases. Yet, The American Cancer Institution, as well as the other Government Agencies refuse to admit that the SV40 is harmful to humans. They continue to play it down. Michele Carbone of Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood Ill, believes that SV40 is indeed causing these cancers in people and wants to look at ways to eliminate the cause. Many more established medical researchers are starting to speak out on the outrageous spread of disease proved over, and over to be caused by SV40. By 1963 it was believed that all traces of SV40 was taken out of new vaccines. But, research in the 70’s and 80’s proved to show traces of the SV40 in the tumors found in children to young to have been contaminated. There were experiments conducted in the 60’s at a hospital in Cleveland where infants of mostly lower income, African American families were inoculated with vaccine containing 100 times the normal potency. Later the vaccine was found to contain SV40 traces. In a study, a feeble attempt to find these children later while they were in their late teens, resulted with the assumption that there was no affect. Newer research is showing that SV40 can hide and lie dormant for years. People are developing cancers after the age of 40 (Carlson). In1988 Dr. Michele Carbon discovered a fatal cancer called Mesothelioma developed in hamsters after being injected with SV40. Since this was a rare cancer, mostly unheard of before the 50’s, they linked it to asbestos exposure. However, 20 percent of victims had no asbestos exposure. Dr Carbon discovered that a larger percent of them did have SV40. From 1996 up to the present time SV40 has been discovered in Bone Cancer, Lung Cancer, Kidney Disease, Brain Cancers, even AID’s patients, and the list goes on (Carlsen). There were 3 types of Polio vaccine developed by isolating the poliovirus and inactivating it with formaldehyde. The process of each type was developed through monkeys. Since Monkeys carry simian viruses, the viruses became part of the final Polio vaccine. It was 1960 and the vaccine had been given to about 10,000 Americans plus millions in the USSR. The SV40 had been discovered to be in up to 30% of those vaccines. A regulation for production was amended, however, there is no way to retract what had been done, and no way to separate the SV40 from the vaccine even though many studies and tests were conducted. However, because of insufficient time, the government concluded that SV40 was not harmful to humans. Despite the government’s conclusions, in the last years, scientists from around the world have found SV40 antibodies in a large amount of people who were too young to receive the SV40 contaminated Polio vaccines. To add to these new and alarming discoveries, they have found that cancers with SV40 are less likely to respond to chemotherapy and radiation. This is because SV40 interferes and destroys genes that make it possible for cancer cells to die when they are exposed to chemo or radiation therapy. According to the Institute of Medicine Report in July of 2002, it is concluded by the National Institute of Science that the biological evidence is strong that SV40 is a cancer causing virus and that it could cause cancer in humans under normal conditions, and that it could be related to the Polio vaccine given back in the 60’s (Horwin).
Even though this seems like progress on the governments part, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be enough for the National Institute of Health to sanction the research for ways to stop the virus in relation to cancer.
In 1989 a young researcher named Daniel J.Bergsagel at the Cancer Institute in Boston, made the first major breakthrough in finding SV40 in human brain tumor tissue, using a brand new form of research technology called polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, a technology that can detect the presence of even the tiniest amounts of viral DNA in a tissue or other specimen. PCR has become a valuable tool in the research of viruses in tissues. Bergsagel originally was set to research the viruses JC and BK, which are normally found in human tissue that has been known to be present in cancers in experimental animals. This discovery was the first hard evidence that SV40 could in deed be found as a contributor to human cancers. Even though Bargsagel's discovery would eventually land him and Garcia, the PhD that he was working under, in the New England Journal of Medicine, which is a high honor, it didn't stop the accusations from coming in. From the minute the article was made public, Bargsagel was accused of letting his samples get contaminated with SV40 from somewhere else. He defended himself by letting them know that he had even destroyed one PCR machine because he used so much bleach to sterilize it. He was very careful. Bargsagel was still very interested in further research on SV40, but for fear of continually having to fight the accusations, he left science and became a regular doctor specializing in Pediatrics (Bookchin and Schumacher 158-154).
Simian virus (SV40) was found to cause of Mesotheliomas, Osteosarcomas, Ependymomas, Choroid Plexus tumors, and Lymphomas in hamsters. In humans, SV40 has been detected in tumors from Mesotheliomas, Osteosarcomas, Ependmomas, and Choroid Plexus as well. They tested 29 non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, 25 postransplant lymph proliferative disorders, and 5 AIDS lymphomas for SV40 DNA with the PCR technology. The analysis revealed that 3 of 29 lymphomas, 6 of 25 post transplant lymph proliferative disorders, and 2 of 5 AIDS lymphomas contained SV40 (Rizzo).
In London England channel 4 Television showed a Dispatches investigation documentary in 1997 on Contaminated polio vaccines, and exposing how the Simian 40 Virus was introduced into the population through the Polio Vaccine back in the 50s. The documentary touched on how the polio vaccine came to contain monkey viruses such as SV40. Scientists were interviewed and they told how in 1960 Salks Polio Vaccine was given to millions, and how in 1961 Dr Eddy discovered the SV40. They showed various answers to questions given by different historians and scientists on how US researchers discovered SV40 in 1961. In the UK, the Minister for Health confirmed in Parliament that British polio vaccine was contaminated with SV40, American companies Parke Davis, and Pitman-Moore and Connaught Laboratory is who supplied the vaccine to the UK. The documentary confirmed to the best of anyone’s knowledge that the polio vaccine manufactured after 1963 is free of SV40, however, since 1963 several other Simian viruses have been detected, but little research has been done on them. Finally, the main subject addressed was what SV40 does to humans. Scientists say that it changes the chromosomes in the body and causes it to loose the cells that fight against cancer. It is concluded that we are not safe from the effects of SV40 because it is being transferred from human to human. More evidence is showing that disease and cancer is rising in the population. Research in finding ways to reverse the damage is giving some hope, however, research is in its early stages (Roberts). In respect to the Medical Community, the government relies on a program that has been in place since 1973 called SEER, the principal source of cancer statistics for the nation. They claim that studies examined all available information on cancer rates in the United States throughout the time spans before, during, and after the inoculations of SV40 contaminated Polio vaccines to infants and children in the 50's and 60's. The infants who were injected with contaminated vaccine were not put under surveillance until they were at least 10 years of age. They studied mortality statistics as well as incidence data. From those statistics it was verified that SV40 did contaminate the vaccine, however all statistics could not conclusively verify that SV40 proved any harm to humans. They admit that the findings to date are worth note, however, further studies and surveillance is needed to clarify the risks and affects of the SV40 contaminated polio vaccine (American Medical Association) The details are that the experiments spanned three years, involving 1,073 infants. Most were given Sabin oral, which later was shown to contain SV40. A report in 1982 in the New England Journal of Medicine understated that most of the kids had not responded. They did not take into consideration that SV40-realated cancers could take longer than 17 to 19 years to appear, or that SV40 appeared less likely to infect humans through the oral vaccine. Nevertheless, these findings helped reassure the government

that SV40 is not a carcinogenic in human beings. So, the studies halted with the notion that it took too much time and was too costly to trace this particular group. It was even left with a bad taste of racism, which was the position of the government at that time (Mazza). Since the NIH and the ACI has refused to look at the SV40 as a cause of the cancerous diseases, many people have sought out alternate treatments. One such person is a woman named Beatrice Lydecker; Beatrice who is a survivor of Cancer and has treated herself with her knowledge of natural herbs, chemistry, and the human anatomy. Based on stated research, Beatrice theorizes, that because it is a retrovirus it infiltrates and eventually kills the cells that protect the body from cancerous growth, which weakens the immune system. Thus SV40 becomes the cause of most immune deficiency diseases, such as, Hepatitis C, HIV, Ebstein Bar/Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue, Lymphoma, and the list goes on. She also believes that researchers will never find a cure for it because it keeps replicating to fast to keep up with. She feels that it is very contagious, being transferred not only through blood, but also through bodily fluids which is why people are turning up with it that are too young to have been inoculated with the polio vaccine that was contaminated with SV40 (Lydecker). There are many others who claim that they have a natural treatment that they, either cured themselves with or, that they helped many others with. All acknowledge research results that show SV40 to be the cause of many cancers. Yet, the medical doctors cannot legally sanction the idea of natural treatment or that the Simian 40 Virus has any play in it. There is no test for SV40 and many medical doctors don't really know what it is. People with cancer are forced to choose between scientific medication or natural treatments, one or the other, but seldom both. And of course insurance will not pay for natural medication. Because of finances, many people have no choice. Unfortunately, severe damage to world health has continued by the unsavory practice of growing vaccination products in animals. At the Eighth Annual Houston Conference on AIDS, Dr. Urnovitz presented evidence that human immune deficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is a monkey hybrid virus which was produced when 320,000 Africans were injected with polio virus contaminated with live simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in the late 1950's. Evidently, viral fragments combine easily with other viruses to produce these hybrids called chimeras. Before this revelation, health officials were blaming AIDS on the habit of certain Africans to eating monkey flesh along with Africans having sexual relations with monkeys. Recently another vaccine has been found to be contaminated with a virus from an animal. The Rotarix rotavirus vaccine, one of two vaccines licensed in the United States has been found to be contaminated with material from a pig virus, and was taken off the market in March of 2010. However, the Food and Drug Administration says that there is no evidence at this time that this material poses a safety risk, and at a conference call, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg told reporters in a conference call that Rotarix, made by GlaxoSmithKline, was approved by the FDA in 2008, and that the contaminant material is DNA from porcine circovirus 1, a virus from pigs that is not known to cause disease in humans or animals. Sounds like history is repeating itself. About 1 million children in the United States and about 30 million worldwide have gotten Rotarix vaccine. Rotavirus disease kills more than 500,000 infants around the world each year, primarily in low- and middle-income countries (Fuentes).

The "Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation" proves that two- thirds of adolescents in the U.S. are obese, not including the adolescents that are border line too chunky. (Frank 1-17). In 2005, obesity had the highest death rate. Obesity increases your risks of getting multiple diseases. Diseases include: type two diabetes, gall bladder diseases, chronic illnesses, sleeping disorders, strokes, arthritis and heart failure. Doctors are now describing the planet as a globesity. Globesity is describing the globe as being obese because obesity is increasing tremendously. (Kelly, Evelyn B. (pg.441)). Obesity has even raised more deaths than smoking cigarettes. Determining if you’re obese is very simple. Calculating your BMI (body mass index) helps you to determine if you’re overweight, obese, or morbidly obese. You calculate your weight into pounds and the multiply by 703, then put your height in inches and multiply that number times itself. Then last of all, you divide your total weight in pounds by your total height in inches. When getting the final results anything between 25 kg/m^2 to 30......

Hemorrhagic Stroke

...Case Study James Morasco College of Southern Nevada – Nursing 211 Clinical Professor Judith Alewel, MSN, RN October 15, 2012 Introduction AV is a 57 year old male whom presented to the Emergency Department of Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, NV on September 7, 2012 with the classic signs and symptoms of a left-sided middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarct and was admitted to the medical intensive care unit (MICU). These signs included left sided facial drooping, non-reactive left pupil, right sided weakness in the upper and lower extremities, and the inability to speak. Along with the signs and symptoms of the stroke, a 12-lead EKG revealed that he also has atrial fibrillation. The initial computerized tomography (CT) scan of his brain revealed nothing, but a subsequent MRA (magnetic resonance angiogram) concluded that he did, in fact, have an occluded branch of the left MCA that eventually converted to become hemorrhagic and he was admitted to the MICU. The MRA also found a persistent left trigeminal artery, which is insignificant to his presenting disease process. Along with all of this, a two dimensional echocardiogram revealed some significant hearts problems that will be discussed later. I cared for this patient during the clinical shift on September 18, 2012. History and Physical The only history and physical that was available in this patient’s chart was some narrative comments from his daughter notated by the physician, and this is most likely due......
