• In 2011, in children 15 years-old or less, there were 47,500 cases of AFP occurring primarily in the "over-vaccinated" states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, where children have been administered a increasing number of OPV doses, from "approximately" 4 per year in 1999 to as many as 10 doses per year in 2010.
• In 2012, there were 61,000 AFP cases, with 59% of cases occurring in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. ( http://www.npspindia.org/bulletin.pdf ) Tested stool samples found OPV poliovirus in 2,635 cases(4%) and non-polio enteroviruses (Coxsackie, echoviruses) in 12,152 (20%). The remaining 44,547 (75%) were listed as "non-typed."
However, a more technically sophisticated study of 47,000 North India AFP cases from 2004-2007 found that of "non-typed" viruses in AFP cases, 67% were non-polio enteroviruses. The remaining 33% remained non-typed, but EV-86 and HEV-97 were identified. ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19712176 )
The data suggests two significant problems with the polio "eradication" program in India:
1) OPV-induced antibodies in the gut are making room for the growth of non-polio enteroviruses that not only are know to cause paralysis but also can cause four times the number of deaths as do the wild polioviruses;
2) OPV is mutating and causing 2,300 cases of polio per year. How can India be proclaimed "polio-free" when the vaccine itself is causing polio?
Bill Gates and the WHO are eliminating wild poliovirus infections overseas, which is exactly the CDC's plan to protect the US ("Fight polio there so we don't have to fight it here"). But, in doing so, they are condemning India and subtropical countries with poor sanitation to epidemics of AFP caused 1) by mutated oral polio vaccine strains and 2) by dozens of enteroviruses (for which there are no vaccines) that cause the same brain and spinal cord damage as the polioviruses but are more deadly. India's polio cases are being replaced by increasing numbers of cases of AFP and vaccine-induced polio.
for the relationship between non-polio enteroviruses and CFS.
Hope you're well!

"Everyone seeks to be happy. But when we physically feel lousy, our external sources for happiness are not so easily accessible. Sometimes the suffering of illness lies not so much in its accompanying physical sensations, but in the personal sense of diminishment and the social isolation and separation it brings."
