HIV From Oral Polio Vaccine?
Mar 28, 2006
I recently began reading a book called The River by Edward Hooper. In it, Mr. Hooper postulates that HIV was essentially created during experimentation related to an oral Polio vaccine in the 1950's. Thoughts?
Response from Dr. Frascino
I have not read Mr. Hooper's 1999 book, "The River," but from what I've heard, his "circumstantial evidence" supporting his claim that the Wistar polio vaccine caused the AIDS epidemic has been discredited on multiple scientific fronts.
