Episode Two: Monkey Business: Polio, Measles And How It All Began
How did it all begin? How could the scientific establishment have possibly gotten so big a story so wrong? Everyone knows the story of Polio…or do they? What from that story is actual history and what is medical marketing? How did a small branch of the scientific establishment come to convince the world polio was the result of a virus and not from environmental toxins? Learn what the actual experiments were upon which this theory was based – and how shockingly unconvincing they are. Discover too how the medical establishment's efforts to squeeze the symptoms of polio into a virus model formed the very foundation of modern virology, and how that commercially successful model has steered modern science ever since, evidence be damned.
