A new “unknown” and “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness named Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) has been paralyzing young children across the US and Canada since 2014. According to the US CDC, there have been 368 registered cases of AFM since 2014; 149 cases were registered in 2016 alone (the highest number of cases in any single year) and 68 cases have been reported so far in 2018.
“AFM is a rare, but serious condition that affects the nervous system. It specifically affects the area of spinal cord called gray matter and causes muscles and reflexes to become weak. In most cases, the patient’s arms or legs become weak, similar to the results of infection with polio. In some cases, patients recover quickly. In other cases, patients remain paralyzed. There is a lot we don’t know about AFM, and I am frustrated that despite all of our efforts, we haven’t been able to identify the cause of this mystery illness," said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, there were fewer than five cases reported in Canada between January and August 2018. However, over the last few weeks, more than 20 additional cases were alarmingly reported in Canada including 6 in Montréal, Québec.
In Septembre 2018, a four-year old Canadian girl from Québec (Geneviève Blais, pictured above) was diagnosed with AFM in Québec. Her treating physician Dr. Christos Karatzios, a Pediatric Infectious Diseases Specialist at Montréal Children's Hospital briefly explained the "mysterious" illness of his patient in the following television interviews:

In response to a question on his FB page about this “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness, Dr. Karatzios wrote:
" We are actually uncertain what exactly is causing it, but we suspect it to be an enterovirus - similar to polio virus (that is also an enterovirus but has been pretty much eradicated because of vaccination) We suspect enterovirus D68 or 71. We have not been able to easily isolate it from the spinal fluid and so we can only make an association when we isolate it in saliva or stool. Very similar clinical symptoms to polio but can be caught like a cold."
In other words, there is no conclusive scientific evidence to confirm a causal relationship between the “suspected” enterovirus D68 or 71 and the “mysterious” crippling neurological illness (AFM) that is causing myelitis paralysis in young children.
Enteroviruses or Neurotoxic Vaccines Causing Myelitis Paralysis ?
I, in turn, asked Dr. Christos Karatzios whether this new “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness could be caused by a long list of mandatory or recommended vaccines administered to newborns, infants and children that contain neurotoxic mercury (thimerosal) and/or aluminium which are extremely neurotoxic for the central nervous system and the developing brain of newborns, infants and children ?
In fact, several published scientific studies have found a causal relationship between vaccines that contain mercury and/or aluminium and neurological disorders in children and more specifically between vaccines and transverse myelitis. Moreover, the vaccines inserts CLEARLY list transverse myelitis as an adverse “side effect” of vaccines, as the following insightful paper and articles reveal:

Polio Vaccines and Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM)
Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) is also an adverse "side effect" of the polio vaccine. In fact, over 47,500 children in India were paralyzed after being injected with the polio vaccine a few years ago. AFM, also known as Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) or non-polio AFP (NPAFP), has been reported since 2014 as a “mysterious polio-like illness”.
In a paper published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics in 2012, Neetu Vashisht, MD and Jacob Puliya, MD wrote: “Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio vaccine received.”
Moreover, In 1992 the CDC publicly admitted that every case of poliomyelitis paralysis in the US since the early 1960’s was CAUSED by the oral polio vaccine (OPV) used in the US from the early 1960’s to 2000! And as far back as 1976, Dr Salk publicly admitted under testimony that the OPV used in the US from the early 1960’s to 2000 was “the principal if not the sole cause” of all poliomyelitis paralysis cases in the US since 1961.
Dr Karatzios, however, categorically denies that vaccines could be causing transverse myelitis in children by arguing that patients that he diagnosed with AFM had not been vaccinated 2 months prior to contracting the "mysterious" paralyzing illness.
In response, I argued that most neurological vaccine injuries often manifest several months or years after the administration of the vaccine; moreover, several published studies cited in the linked articles above have found a causal link between vaccine and transverse myelitis, including AFM. And last but not least, the vaccines inserts CLEARLY list transverse myelitis as an adverse “side effect” of several vaccines administered to children and adults alike.
Note: Dr. Karatzios has deleted both his FB post and our correspondence exchanged on his FB page.
