    It is known fact that polio would have been eradicated long time back if the present live polio virus drops aren't administered to kids every year. The adeno virus based drops are banned in all countries except 2 countries & Bill Gates is the primary beneficiary & imposer of them. Another thing ignored by vaccinators is that those kids who are malnourished will get polio & it is estimated every year in India around 25 to 50 thousand kids get it, but a new name like Acute non Polio Paralytic stroke or syndrome so that we still can claim we have eradicated polio through aggressive vaccinations certified by WHO which is puppet of Gates.
