Our family, along with many others, went to the local high school on 3 consecutive Sundays after church. Nurses had trays of sugar cubes, each with a drop of serum. None of us in our family got any of those cancers thankfully.
Did the British government buy their vaccines from the same suppliers? Is this one of the reasons that cancers are so prevalent now? Of course we have free health care but even so, it is not free to the government. They still have to pay big pharma.
Here's a CDC page on history and how they addressed this problem. There was no causation found between cancer and SV40 virus. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/concerns-history.html
Scroll down and click on the subsection "Simian Virus 40 (SV40) - 1955-1963". There are a couple PDFs about the issue and some links to studies on the NIH site.
This quoted statement from the CDC page does not mean SV40 causes cancer. It means more research is needed, which is exactly what they say. It's a good idea not to conflate "X causes cancer" with "X might cause cancer" and "X correlates with cancer". None of those are equivalent.
That's not to say we should ignore these issues or think the issue is really resolved.
Brilliant work Therium. Thank you. There is a woman scientist whose name I cannot recall who has written about retro viruses in vaccines and lost her job for it. (Going through brain fog at the moment)
But this is interesting from Professor Joe Cummings (2010)
Lessons from SV40 contaminated vaccines
Simian virus 40 (SV40) is a monkey virus inadvertently administered to human populations in contaminated vaccines produced in SV40-infected monkey cells. Molecular biology and epidemiological studies suggest that SV40 may be contagiously transmitted in humans by horizontal infection, independently of the earlier administration of SV40-contaminated vaccines. In humans, SV40 has been found associated at high prevalence with specific tumour types such as brain and bone tumours, mesotheliomas and lymphomas and with kidney diseases . SV40 was discovered as a contaminant of poliovirus vaccine lots distributed to millions of individuals in the United States between 1955 and 1963; and contaminated vaccine batches were later circulated worldwide. After SV40 was observed to cause animal and human cell transformations in culture, and tumour formations in animals, researchers began to search for SV40 in human cancers . For example, a 2005 study undertaken in Costa-Rica showed that SV40 is significantly associated with cancers of the immune system . US FDA acknowledges that the SV 40 virus (simian virus 40 from monkey kidney cells) was in the early polio vaccines and its risks : “The experience in the early 1960s with SV40 contamination of poliovirus and adenovirus vaccines and the continuing questions regarding whether SV40 could be responsible for some human neoplasms [cancers] underscores the importance of keeping viral vaccines free of adventitious agents. “ (See also Flu Vaccines and the Risk of Cancer, SiS 44 ). SV40 contamination of polio vaccines is an old lesson that seems to have been ignored in the current rush to profit from manufacturing vaccines.
