What Illness is Paralyzing Kids Around the Country?

A mystery illness has caused paralysis in 75 children across 25 states. There may be a connection to the enterovirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but they aren't sure just yet. CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Seema Yasmin says, "At this point it could be anything."

What should parents be looking for? Sudden weakness, arms or legs not working normally, and drooping facial muscles are all signs that children should be taken to the doctor immediately.

    If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, swims like a duck – it's polio. Vaccines are not working. The medical industry does not have the courage to say that vaccines have failed us, created immune system problems and viruses are mutating and coming back with a vengenance. We have to get back to the basics and make sure that children develop healthy immune systems with good food – not GMO's, fresh air, exercise and less stress. The children today are assaulted by unhealthy lifestyles on all levels, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. If fear for the children today that if we adults do not start to stand up and stand in truth and integrity we are going to continue to raise sick children that have no idea what it takes to life life and thrive. We are creating a death culture making money from making people sick by all the chemicals, GMO's drugs and then giving them the same drugs to keep them barely alive but on billion dollar drugs, surgeries, pills. We have created a sick society and hopefully we will have the courage to say we are on the wrong road and get back to taking care of our planet rather than pursuing money at all costs.
