+ - 98 Million Americans Might Have Received Polio Vaccine Contaminated With Cancer ->

SmartAboutThings (1951032) writes "The Center for Disease Control and Prevention website curiously mothballed pages admitting that the polio vaccine administered from 1955 to 1963 to over 98 million Americans was contaminated with a primate form of cancer virus. cdclogoOther CDC web pages also referencing the link between the widely-distributed vaccine and cancer have similarly been discarded. The pages are still available through Google’s cache system and at the links below: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/updates/archive/polio_and_cancer_factsheet.htm http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/updates/archive/polio_and_cancer.htm"
