The link above has the most difficult topic I know of within it’s copy. The Lancet is a weekly, peer-reviewed general medical journal. It is among the world’s oldest, most prestigious and best known general medical journals.
So when they write and article about something, the rest of the world sits up and listens. I did and I am shocked. This article was written in July 2004. That’s a while back.
What does the article describe, in one sentence. In the 1950’s, when Jonas Salk, and later Albert Sabin, developed the polio vaccine, instead of using human tissues, as did the scientists who won a Nobel Prize for first growing poliovirus in tissue culture, he used minced-up rhesus macaque monkey kidneys, which were remarkably efficient poliovirus factories.
That’s basically all you need to know. You can click on the article, dated 2004 and read more about what happened. By 1960, scientists and vaccine manufacturers knew that monkey kidneys were full of simian (monkey) viruses.
