AIDS
HIV and Polio Vaccine
      Independent laboratory tests have found no evidence to support the theory
     that an early version of the polio vaccine tested in the 1950s inadvertantly
     triggered the AIDs epidemic.
NO AIDS RISK FROM POLIO VACCINES

     Examines evidence refuting an AIDS/vaccine connection.

SV40 VIRUS
Oral Polio Vaccine Testing for SV40
    
Steps used to ensure no SV40 contamination occurs.

"STEALTH" VIRUS
CYTOMEGALOVIRUS (CMV): What is it?
     CMV is a very common type of herpes virus.  Over half
     of adults have it.  It is transmitted in saliva, blood,
     urine, semen.  Most people have it by age 3.  It causes
     infection in immuno-compromised individuals.

How vaccines are tested for "contamination."
     A review of the testing procedures and standards
     used to verify vaccine purity.

Cytomegaloviruses of animals and humans
     are not infectious across species.
