Reader comment on item: A Conspiracy Theory Spreads Polio

Submitted by J Schamroth (Israel), May 24, 2005 at 15:32

I agree with your whole article, EXCEPT for the last sentence.

No, this polio epidemic does NOT damage everyone! Those communities who act responsibly and have themselves innoculated will not be affected by Polio. Those who wish to ignore medical advice by avoiding vaccination, by practicing unsafe sex, or by smoking etc., have only themselves to blame when they ultimately develop Polio, AIDS or lung cancer.
