Posted on 02/24/2014 7:57:19 AM PST by BenLurkin
Dr. Keith Van Haren, a pediatric neurologist at Stanford Universitys Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital who has worked with Glasers team, will present the cases of five of the children at the American Academy of Neurologys upcoming annual meeting.
He said all five patients had paralysis in one or more arms or legs that reached its full severity within two days. None had recovered limb function after six months.
We know definitively that it isnt polio, Van Haren added, noting that all had been vaccinated against that disease.
Glaser wouldnt provide the number of illnesses. Van Haren said he was aware of around 20.

Why is that? Couldn’t be millions of unchecked illegal Mexicans coming from who knows where carrying what heretofore extinct diseases, could it?
No, they bring a richness of diversity, do the jobs Americans won’t do, and have a shared heritage with this country. That couldn’t include bringing diseases with them. /s
Illegal aliens bringing us pathogenic diversity.
Diseases we never had to be concerned with before.
Like nobody saw this coming.
Illegals leaving Arizona for sanctuary cities bring contagious diseases with them
Illegals Bringing Drug Resistant TB to US
They know it can’t be polio since the children were all vaccinated for it. What a stupid thing to say. It’s like doctors these days are selected from some religious background that forbids healthy scientific skepticism.
Its probably something found in a McDouble.
Well, as with any other virus, it has the ability to change, or mutate. As a school nurse, I’ve been reading about this for more than a decade now. This is not news.
This is horrible.
He didn't say that, exactly. He said they know the disease wasn't polio, AND the children were vaccinated. They might have learned the first fact by testing the children's blood for the pathogen that causes polio.
“One of our grandkids practically went into a come for a couple days after getting seven shots in one day.”
That you have lived long enough to have grand kids that have lived long enough to give you joy is in no small part due to those shots you criticize.
Another gift from the illegals. /s
I keep my kids up to date with their shots but lately, they have been having reactions to their shots. I’ve also been having bad reactions to the flu shots as well.
I don’t think I’m going to get them again. My arm swells up and and becomes to painful to sleep on or even touch.
I question the intelligence of a mother that schedules 7 shots in one day.
It’s not like Dr.s give those shots w/o consent of the parent. You can choose to make multiple appointments and do them two at a time several days or a week apart.
I refused the hepatitis series entirely for my infants, choosing to delay that series until they were pre-teens. Didn’t do the chicken pox until Jr. High.
I am a strong believer in vaccines, just not that you absolutely have to follow the recommended schedule, which is designed for urban and or turd world populations and not for rural, homeschooling families with many many fewer risk factors.
The chicken pox vaccine actually gave my daughter the chicken pox.
What an absolutely ignorant statement.
“Maybe it’s all the damn shots they give these kids. One of our grandkids practically went into a come for a couple days after getting seven shots in one day.”
First of all - doctors bully parents into giving kids multiple shots at once. Secondly - these shots are not what they were 30-40 years ago. They contain dead fetal cells, mercury, and who knows what else in them.
I have never had & never will get a flu shot. And no, I do not get the flu. I have friends who get the flu shot every year and still get the flu.
I hope your grandkids are ok.
