CDC Admits Polio Vaccine Tainted with Cancer Causing Virus

by Sarah VaccinationComments: 126

Polio vaccineThis is one of the most outrageous vaccination stories I’ve ever come across. The CDC posted on its own website (which was taken down shortly after this post went viral. Click here for an internet archived copy) that as many as 30 million Americans could be at risk for developing cancer due to polio vaccine tainted with Simian Virus 40 (SV40) found in some species of monkey.

This story is not new – many of of us who thoroughly researched the vaccination issue before choosing whether or not to immunize were already aware of this fact years ago.

I became aware of the tainted polio vaccines from 1955-1963 in the late 1990’s and it was one of the primary motivators for me to choose a “no shots, no way” approach for my children.

What is new is that the CDC is finally admitting it.

What took you so long CDC? Many of the folks vaccinated with the tainted polio stock are already dead from cancer with many more getting diagnosed each and every day!

Here’s the exact language from the CDC Fact Sheet.  I am reprinting it here in it’s entirety in case the CDC decides to take it down. UPDATE: The CDC did in fact take down the page on SV40 shortly after this post went viral, so the link now goes to an archived copy.

  • SV40 is a virus found in some species of monkey.
  • SV40 was discovered in 1960. Soon afterward, the virus was found in polio vaccine.
  • More than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine from 1955 to 1963 when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 10—30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of vaccine.
  • SV40 virus has been found in certain types of cancer in humans, but it has not been determined that SV40 causes these cancers.
  • The majority of scientific evidence suggests that SV40-contaminated vaccine did not cause cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.
  • In the 1950s, rhesus monkey kidney cells, which contain SV40 if the animal is infected, were used in preparing polio vaccines. Because SV40 was not discovered until 1960, no one was aware in the 1950s that polio vaccine could be contaminated.
  • Not all doses of IPV were contaminated. It has been estimated that 10—30 million people actually received a vaccine that contained SV40.
  • Some evidence suggests that receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine may increase risk of cancer. However, the majority of studies done in the U.S. and Europe which compare persons who received SV40-contaminated polio vaccine with those who did not have shown no causal relationship between receipt of SV40-contaminated polio vaccine and cancer. (Editor’s note: Oh really? SV40 has already been detected in some human tumors. That is far and beyond “some evidence”.)

polio vaccine Possibly more shocking than the fact that it took 50 years for the CDC to admit to this is that it took 3 years once SV40 was discovered in 1960 to finally recall the tainted stock and reformulate the vaccine. Over 100 million Americans were vaccinated with the contaminated polio vaccine before action was taken.

30 million seems like a very lowball number of the true extent of the problem!

With baby boomers suffering from cancer, by some estimates, at the mind boggling rate of 1 in every 3 individuals (up from 1 in 8,000 only a few decades prior and the highest rate of any age group), it would seem that something is terribly amiss, don’t you think?

The government has a penchant for doling out bad news a little at a time to minimize public outrage. Even if the CDC does finally admit that SV40 is a cause for this enormous explosion in cancer of boomers in their late 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, can these folks or their grieving families do anything about it?

Nope. Can’t sue anyone my friends. Big Pharma is immune from prosecution from any injuries or deaths caused by their mad scientist vaccination creations. This all thanks to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986.

One parting thought. The CDC insists that current polio vaccines no longer contain SV40. Should this give us some level of comfort?

Not for me it doesn’t! Just because SV40 is not in the polio vaccine stock today doesn’t mean that there aren’t other viruses lurking that science doesn’t even know about yet.  Remember that SV40 was in the polio vaccine for several years before it was even discovered!

Even if there were other viruses in the polio or any other vaccine, would the CDC admit it? Probably not – at least for 50 years or so after the affected population was already sick, incapacitated or dead.

I’ll take my chances with a strong immune system maintained with Traditional Diet and the fact that epidemics were already on their way out before vaccines were introduced anyway (see chart above – other communicable diseases follow the same graphical pattern regardless of whether there was a vaccine for them or not. Click here for more graphs to help you get your head out of the sand). Getting horses out of the streets, improved sanitation, clean running water in the home, availability of produce year round and other improvements of modern technology and food distribution provide more protection from widespread epidemics than tainted vaccines, thank you very much.

    What big pharma and researchers do not tell us is that they INACTIVATE viruses as they find them.
    Why would anyone want an inactivated virus injected into their blood stream that has the potential to become ACTIVE?

    Dr Maurice Hileman says they inactivate them here at frame 5:30

    Another point is if we have positive Titers against a pathogen (which they claim proves immunity) only proves that we have been exposed and our immune system is still fighting the pathogen. If we have no titers, we either, A) have not been exposed or B) our immune system is so low that it cannot create antibodies against the pathogen.

    Here is some History on Polio virus research:
    1947 Salk is recruited by the University of Pittsburgh to develop a virus research program.
    1948-49 Scientists from four universities confirm there are only three strains of poliovirus. Weller and Robbins grow poliovirus in live cells–Nobel Prize

    1952 The worst recorded polio epidemic in United States history occurs, with 57,628 reported cases.
    1952-1954 Dr. Salk and associates develop a potentially safe injectable vaccine against polio, (IPV) given to nearly 15,000 Pittsburgh-area subjects (most were children) in pilot trials, 1952-1954.

    Outbreak sure looked planned.

    I was born in 1958. I remember getting vaccinated and eating those sugar cubes. I was diagnosed with Osteogenic sarcoma in 1971. Lost a leg to it. Mets to lung in 1974. Breast cancer in 1988. Now heart failure from radiation and chemo. Would be nice if I knew the truth. And as far as a law suit….I sure could use some cash to improve the quality of my life that add sucks right now !

    To add to this, the main target of these vaccines (POISONS) are the so called “African Americans” and “Hispanics”, who are really the children of Israel.

    The CDC is part of a conspiracy that is as old as Egypt itself, as old as the Roman Empire.

    Who brought diseases to the Native Americans? Who poisoned “Negroes” in the Tuskegee Experiment? Who promotes “abortion” and birth control?

    Simply put, CDC is the Center of Disease Creation.

    Yes I know ..but do you know these bastards are now injecting the polio virus into a cancer cells/tumor? The same shit who made the cancer cell/tumor in the beginning through the polio vaccine! This for sure is called chasing the tail of them self! Anyway.. they for sure have NEVER eradicated anything with a vaccine but actually kept alive.. If vaccines and drugs would cure us then these fellows would be out of business…. it is all about business and having steady customers…from the crib to the coffin… People say we are healthier.. wrong! .. How many would be able to raise their hand claim they are on no drugs or have never been… And people say we live longer..I say takes us just a longer time to take the last breath..we are actually half dead from the crib to the coffin… Then it is the question about adding a life into our years.. or is it adding years into our lifes? ..I want to have life in my years no matter how short the life is.. rather than have many years with no life…

    Not an easy decision? Read this article: written by a doctor:

    ‘Measles vs. MMR Vaccine: Risks and Benefits’

    “Measles (and other viral childhood diseases) stimulate both the Th1 and Th2 components. The MMR vaccine stimulates predominately the Th2 side. Overstimulation of this part of the adaptive immune system provokes allergies, asthma, and auto-immune diseases. Since the Th1 side thwarts cancer, if it does not get fully developed in childhood a person can wind up being more prone to cancer later in life. Women who had mumps during childhood, for example, have been found to be less likely to develop ovarian cancer compared with women who did not have mumps. (This study was published in the mainstream medical journal Cancer.)

    Could the fact that cancer has now become a leading cause of death in children be connected to vaccinations? Only a well-controlled, randomized, blinded, long-term scientific trial would be able to conclusively answer this question. But societal entities that could fund such a study, like the government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), drug companies that make the vaccine, or the CDC do not feel that it is necessary to conduct one.”

    If you actually read the page you linked to, you would see that (a) only 1/10 to 1/3 of the vaccines were tainted, (b) studies following the cohort that received it are showing no differences in cancer rates because there’s no evidence that the virus causes cancer anyway, and finally, (c) this virus has not been in any vaccine since 1963.

    This kind of data-distorting fear-mongering does no one any favors. Why don’t you report instead on the outbreaks of diseases that occur when people don’t vaccinate their children, and on the unnecessary deaths that result?

    Dear Sarah,

    Could you possibly provide a better explanation for the axis of your figure, decreasing percentage isn’t very clear. Also was this data extrapolated from the Alderson book or is it a direct reproduction of one of his figures?

    Just trying to get a better understanding of the impact that the vaccine may or may not of had on the infection rate of Polio. Did the author present similar data over the same period originating from third world countries? If your assertion that better infrastructure and subsequently better public health resulted in a decreased rate of infection then surely the third world countries would not have seen such a large decrease, if that is indeed that your figure shows.

    Many thanks,

    I am as suspect of the intentions of vaccinations and the CDC as most anyone. And the information that was on the CDC site is definitely an eye-opener. But it is not being reported accurately.

    First of all it was last modified on Oct 22, 2007 – it is interesting that it took nearly 6 years for blogs to start mis-interpreting its contents for their own benefit.

    There are serious problems with the vaccination industry and the CDC and sharing facts is important but it also important to not spread embellished interpretations of such facts.

    Once I read something that made a lot of sense to me: “The best vaccine for every illness is a strong immune system” – And how we keep our immune system strong is by paying attention to all we eat.. all we do to ourselves, our bodies, minds and souls. How much we exercise, how much we love ourselves. Are we putting only loving things into our bodies, loving thoughts, loving food? Or are we putting suffering and pain in form of thoughts and food into ourselves? The more we become conscious of our actions and that everything is energy in different vibrations, the better our choices will be. As for my part, this has lead me to become a raw-vegan and to focus only on the positive things in my life. I haven’t fell sick since I started this change… which is over 3 years ago now. And I live in almost constant happiness and bliss!! We can all go there… it’s all in our own hands!!

    it is hard for me to understand those who are screaming at the non vax group. most of those who have chosen not to vax have indeed done their homework. this wasn’t an easy decision for most…it takes hard work to go thru pile after pile of articles and testimonies, etc. simply because they love their children. to scream at a parent who has looked at the research and come to their own informed conclusion is just incredibly cruel to me. shouldn’t you be glad that a parent is so involved in their child they have taken the time to care enough to research? not an easy thing to do as well as go against the flow.

    anyhoo, here’s a recent article I received re the problem w/the polio vax. the first url gives you a decent snippet from a book. i’m sure some won’t like that site…I only post it for the easy access snippet. one can go to the book’s site as well to see more articles from the author, Janine Roberts, at her site:

    Thanks for bringing attention to this matter and how public health authorities and agencies have failed in their duties to protect human health. Someone asked when did the CDC finally admit this? We know that knowledge of the SV-40 contamination problem has existed since the early days of polio vaccine. A pioneering female scientist, Bernice Eddy sounded the alarm decades ago. You can read all about it in a very well researched book called “The Virus and The Vaccine” – A true story about contamination of polio vaccines by SV-40 a known cancer causing virus.

    Instead of coming clean on this issue and finding ways to overcome and address viruses put in people’s bodies by routine vaccinations – which would be the right thing to do – industry and public health choose self-protectionism under the guise of what’s best for public health is to keep vaccination uptake levels strong. Let’s face it, the more people know about the dirty contaminated history of vaccines the less likely they are to use them for themselves or their families. That’s bad for business – so the truth gets suppressed. Thanks for shining a light on this dark and dirty chapter in American medical history books.

    In the article I read about the SV40 in the Ottawa Citizen( a saturday article, since I only ever read the newspaper at work) over a decade ago also said something about how the SV40 affected our natural immune system that protected us from cancer and that it was passed down to their children, not sure how true that is but it makes you think. How many people are getting cancer now who would not have if that vaccine had been tested better, I know polio was/is horrible but then again so is cancer and there are so many more types of cancer out there… too bad no one is going to actually be held accountable for this either… god rest my father and my uncle with the loss of their battle of cancer, both were super health nuts and had no issues until the cancer showed up and they both left us at too young an age my dad was only 53….and I still miss him

    Here’s something to ponder: Maybe people who don’t vaccinate may very well turn out to be healthier as a population, but that’s only because you can no longer count those among them who have died off because they caught the disease they have not been immunized against. The ones who did not catch it just had the stronger immune system to begin with. Half the world’s population DID have natural immunity to the black plague, you know, and natural selection made for a stronger population after it was over. Should we just not immunize and thus allow for the weaker among us to die off? Do we all just hope that our child is the lucky one that won’t be the one to die of a disease outbreak? And the reason polio was so rampant in the 40s-50s was NOT because of filth….it was because of people suddenly getting obsessed with cleanliness! Children no longer had early exposure to dirt as infants so they couldn’t fight off the virus as toddlers, when it was too late. Something to think about today, where we are even more fearful of every germ, making sure we use anti-bacterial wipes on absolutely everything. Anyway, I hardly think you can pinpoint people’s cancer to this when there are so many other factors in cancer: women having fewer children and less breastfeeding: risk of cancer. Smoking, drinking: risk of cancer. Radiation: risk of cancer. Red meat: risk of cancer. And how about just plain living longer. No matter how young you can make yourself look, face it, we were not meant to live as long as people live today. Cells break down, they mutate…..naturally…when you have an old body!

    From a microbiological standpoint, how was this virus able to make the jump from being a monkey virus to human virus so quickly? This seems odd as a virus for a specific species is specific to that species DNA and cannot replicate itself without the specific cellular DNA needed. Seeing as that monkey DNA and human DNA are marginally, but still quite significantly, different, how would this virus have factored into people having cancer? A virus without a compatible host is useless. It is the most complex transformation possible for a virus to make a species to species compatibility jump. Is anyone an actual scientist here that can answer this question?

      Google Bernice Eddy and read “The Virus & The Vaccine.” Eddy discovered the SV-40 virus contaminants and tested it on hamsters. The hamsters grew cancerous tumors centered around SV-40. Cancer tumors in humans have been removed and SV-40 has been found. Apparently SV-40 is virulent enough to not concern itself with who or what species is the host.

        Hi Sarah, thank you so much for the link to the archive. Also do you have more information about the problems assoicated with modern vaccines? I have heard a lot about the dangers, and have stopped giving my younger son vaccines since he was 6 months old, and now he is about 20 months. Hubby is not happy about it, but haven’t spent time to do my research to know how to convince him.

        I did show my husband this article, and here is his response: “The question still remains would your rather certainly die of polio at 7-13 years of age or go through cancer treatment at 65-75. Not saying either option is good, but they have also corrected the problem.”
        “This is a problem no question, but it is ridiculous when we think of how many kids were dropping dead from polio before the vaccines. I am sure they did not want to go through cancer later in life, but at least they got a later. The fact is we only get a little time on this planet. given the choice I am sure most would take the vaccine.
        It is mute. they have already changed the vaccine and removed the problem.”

        Love to hear your input on this. Thanks again

          Show him the charts about how polio was already on its way out before the vaccines ever arrived. It’s very hard for most people to accept that the sacred cows that they’ve believed all their life are in fact false. Some people are just not able to make the mental leap and this is left for future generations to accomplish. The facts are there if he is willing to read and be open minded about it.

    The only people who have to concern themselves are those that got polio shots in the late fifties and early sixties. Most of us are in our mid fifties now. Our risk from cancer due to that alone.. .. is likely mind-bogglingly low, but many of us know people from spots where polio wasn’t eradicated – and they’re limping now.

    The disease was not under control before the vaccine was set out. It was a horrid nastie thing that killed and maimed.Sure it might have been nice if all the ramifications were well known before some of the risks were known,. but time travel doesn’t exist. Grow up.

    I have a question similar to Varis. I travel a lot and we’re just starting to do philanthropic work all over the globe, especially in underdeveloped countries and we want to take our children with us. If we travel to places where my children could contract viruses not now present in America, what would you recommend? I think it’s required to be vaccinated to visit certain countries. Would I be putting my non vaccinated children at considerable risk taking them to third world countries plagued with diseases? If I planned on staying put in America, I wouldn’t worry about it.

      Can you find a homeopath in your area? Many offer nosodes, which can help boost immunity against diseases much the way a vaccine is supposed to do, but they do it without all the horrible additives and are not injected into the bloodstream. I would seriously seek out this resource. Also, I would learn to use herbal tinctures. They are very powerful weapons against illness. I saw great results using them when I had shingles.

    Wonder if these brilliant researchers ever realized that once a virus gets out into the wider environment it can act in synergy with other organisms or mutate- leading to huge questions about this contaminated polio vaccine. Us “vaccine conspiracists” realize that theres far more that the medical establishment won’t tell you about vaccines or health in general.

    I will never forget the morning of May 27, 1956 when my sister, Judy, woke up with a head ache. It was a Sunday morning. She was too sick to go to church. By 8:00 that night, after our doctor made a house visit, she was taken to the hospital. Paralysis had already begun.

    She was put into an iron lung quarantine, where she remained for 3 months. There were 3 other children in our family. We were quarantined for 2 weeks. No one else in our family or our neighborhood got polio. My sister had babysat for the neighbors the night before, drank out of their water glass, etc. No one else got sick.

    We were lucky. Some families had multiple members get sick.

    My sister did not come home for 2 years. She went to a rehab hospital, just for polio victims, where they did some surgeries and stablized her breathing. She had both spinal and lung polio leaving her paralyized and in a wheel chair for the rest of her life. We were told she would die, but my sister was a remarkable woman and lived to be 65 years old. She finished college and worked until she died.

    The effects that polio had on our family is hard to explain unless you have gone through a similar event. I cannot imagine what my parents went through seeing a perfectly healthy child become totally dependent on others for care for 50 years.

    Were I having children today, I am not sure that I would vaccinate for everything that is offered today. I do think the basics, like my children received in the 60’s and 70’s, might be a good thing. We feel safe today because most people have not been exposed to the diseases that now are rare or gone. This is a hard call. But I know this. Seeing a child devastated by a horrible disease is heartbreaking. Life has risks. We cannot keep ourselves or our children from all harm. Their is no magic bullet. We can only make informed choices and go from there. Not all will follow the same path.

        I used the links and went to the CDC’s FAQs. They indicate SV40 has been found in tumors associated with mesothelioma (rare form of lung cancer, also linked to asbestos exposure) and in brain and bone tumors. It has also been associated with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

      There have been a very small handful of cases, one in particular a boy named Alexander who the parents sued becuase her son after the polio vaccine got a brain tumor. when the tumor was tested it was proven to have SV40. of course the parents lost the lawsuit becuase they couldn’t “prove” it was the vaccine, but when they tested the parents they did not have SV40 in their bodies. so where did it come from? makes you wonder. also makes you wonder why children age 6 months to 2 years are getting brain tumors. my guess is the vaccines are causing this in otherwise normal, healthy infants.

    Thanks to folks who DON’T vaccinate, pertussis and TB are on the rise. Perhaps Polio incidences were declining as people didn’t go outdoors, enter water or socialize, because they lived in terror of this highly communicable, deadly, debilitating disease.
    Please homeschool, stay away from playgrounds, and avoid all contact with other children if this is your choice. I don’t want your measles-riddled kid in the same school as mine.

I see it everyday and then for 29 years, I went to work in a hospital and saw lots of confirmation of what I was beginning to understand. God bless those who want to know the TRUTH.

      Take a look at the rates of children that do get measles, perussis, TB and anything else. If you will notice about 80% of these children are FULLY VACCINATED against these diseases.
      In addition, if your children are vaccinated, then according to the “vaccination theory”, you have nothing to worry about, since your children “can’t” get sick from my children who are not vaccinated against it.
      There is also a huge amount of evidence that proves getting some of these childhood diseases actually end up protecting them from other viruses in the future, such as measles protecting against HPV.
      Also, in populations that don’t vaccinate, there are no instances of Autism either.
      BTW, autism can be cured.

        If Autism can be cured please tell me how it can be cured. I have a son with very mild autism but it wasn’t caused by vaccines. He wasn’t vaccinated before the autism was diagnosed. He was vaccinated after. I was never vaccinated and his father was never vaccinated either. It just so happened that Autism runs in my husbands family from generations and generations in the past. The first Autistic person in his family was somewhat diagnosed in 1902 when they didn’t have a true diagnosis for it. There were journals of this member of the family describing his daily life and pictures of him in drawing form with great detail as well. So if Autism has a cure then why don’t you share that information.

          I might suggest reading Gut and Psychology Syndrome, by neurologist and neurosurgeon Natasha Campbell-McBride, for an excellent explanation of how impaired gut function and depressed immunity can be handed down from generation to generation. Indeed, it can be transferred from parent to child and exacerbated in the next generation due to multiple factors (only one of which can be a vaccine, but many other factors come into play as well). This MD developed this protocol to heal her own child of Autism, which she did successfully, because her own field of neuroscience did not have sufficient solutions.

RIGHT THERE, is your first and ONLY indication that you should need to know to NOT ask this person for anything because she is trying to further her personal agenda rather than doing what is best for everyone through research and testing. the CDC document itself said SV40 doesnt cause cancer. other sites are available showing the research has been done on this and anyone with a shred of common sense should know a mistake in the 60’s in medicine in one type by one manufacturer does not mean all vaccinations are bad or tainted. it only means that more viiglant testing needs to be done before introducing anything for human consupmtion

    This would also appear to cover a good size part of Generation X…not just the boomers…but their kids as well in some cases. And that is when the real malnutrition starts, I believe…when mass produced foods induced moms to go to work. Hence our flagging health and mental status in a nation where this issue didn’t exist. The US used to be the tops in everything…now we are mediocre in most. Maybe crime and mental issues….like autism and pervasive chronic abuse.
    It is well to have a good immune system. EVEN if you took the vax……the effective rate is at 50% or less….not good odds.

    Hi Sarah,

    All the evidence refuting the CDC’s propaganda has been outlined in the excellent book Dr. Mary’ Monkey by Edward T. Haslam. ( Similarly, Oliver Stone’ movie J.F.K. alludes to the story behind the story- many of the same characters in the movie are in the book.

    This quote from the CDC is also blatantly untrue. “Because SV40 was not discovered until 1960, no one was aware in the 1950s that polio vaccine could be contaminated.” Really? Doctor Mary Sherman knew there had been widespread contamination. But she was found murdered in the early 1950’s. Her job had been to irradiate the virus in her laboratory.

    Also involved in this work was a brilliant young researcher named Judith Vary Baker. Judith was hired directly out of her high school (at age 17!) because she knew how to grow cancer in the laboratory. She was given a phony position at a coffee company, but her real job was culturing more cancer strains to be used by Dr. Mary Sherman.

    Who was hired to watch out for her? To “babysit” this young lady in New Orleans? Lee Harvey Oswald.

      Some older people who had polio are have recurrences. Polio rates were already declining quite a bit before the vaccine was even developed. It increased again after the vaccine, which was then linked to the live virus. Faulk (I think that’s his name that developed the vaccine) regretted even making it.

      Have any of you who are pro-vaccine ever read the ingredients of what you’re injecting your children with? I bet you don’t feed them fish because of the mercury, yet vaccines are loaded with mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc. which is directly injected into the body without going through the bodies own defenses.

    Have you ever known someone with polio? You anti vax conspiracists are the worst sort – happy to live off heard immunity until you scare the shit out of enough people and then all sorts of kids start dying due to failure to vaccinate. I an assure you that most with polio would have happily risked cancer later in life instead of living with the ravages of the disease (the ones who survived of course).
    All of your “traditional recipes” come from times in which people certainly had better knowledge of food and its preparation but many children didn’t make it to childhood and life spans were considerably shorter. Read a book (one other than the ONE you’ve read by Weston Price). Or, do you not believe in any science at all (vaccination is out, and judging by the comments on your page, things like global warming and evolution are suspect too). Only in America.

      Shelly, I used to think that was absolutely the only truth… Polio is a real disease, but the very real reactions a person’s body can have to being exposed to certain chemicals is also very real. Please don’t entirely discount what you read here. Add some salt and refuse to let anyone make you throw the baby out with the bath water. If you are willing to watch “The Greater Good” a vaccine documentary that gives a very honest approach to what can happen to those exposed to chemicals that their body reacts poorly too. If you add salt and hate most of it, it can still be eye opening in a really good way.

Good for you, Colette and everyone else who doesn’t vaccinate. My cousin vaccinated her 2 children and her son became autistic. No vaccine is safe; they all cause brain inflammation, contain toxins, and are actually ineffective. Having a strong immune system is the best defense. Check into the anti-vaccine websites; some of them tell about your rights and how to get a child into public school who hasn’t been vaccinated. There are more people becoming educated about this. There are even many natural veterinarians who say NO animal vaccines either. My family quit doing those, too. Got to watch out for the stupid government agencies but it can be done.
