RTB presents a reprint of Janine Robert’s ground-breaking presentation of the story and data of the first great success of the modern pharmaceutical era: The Polio Vaccine. What is revealed beneath the gloss of press releases and public hagiography is story that leaves you wondering if anything the public health authorities tell us is actually, factually true – or if it is all in service of a kind of modern church of scientism.
You can read Janine Robert’s work at Fear of the Invisible.com and the Polio Myth. In her work, Roberts followed the trail blazed by researcher Jim West, who is a pioneer in detailing the hidden history of the US polio era and medical-scientific response. His website is Here.

There is a rarely mentioned epidemic raging in the world today, one that is crippling children in more than 100 countries.
