In his book, Dr. Mary’s Monkey, author Edward Haslam documents connections between the vaccine and biological weapons industries. In 1955, Dr. Jonas Salk developed a polio vaccine, which at the time, was the most anticipated publicized event in the history of medicine. However, Dr. Bernice Eddy tested the vaccine on eighteen monkeys and they all became paralyzed. Eddy tried to warn everyone and stop distribution of the vaccines, but other prominent doctors like Dr. Alton Ochsner assured the public that the vaccine was safe. The vaccine was released to the public, and within days children were killed or crippled from polio in the vaccine. The public was outraged.
In 1960, Doctors Benjamin Sweet and Maurice Hilleman, the Merck scientists who named the virus SV40, published their findings:
Viruses are commonly carried by monkeys and may appear as contaminants in cell cultures of their tissues, especially the kidney . . . The discovery of this new virus, the vacuolating agent, represents the detection for the first time of a hitherto “non-detectable” simian virus of monkey renal cultures and raises the important question of the existence of other such viruses . . . . As shown in this report, all 3 types of Sabin’s live poliovirus vaccine, now fed to millions of persons of all ages, were contaminated with vacuolating virus.
