Description - The Polio Paradox by Richard L. Bruno
The leading expert in Post-Polio Syndrome exposes the link between the polio disease that was 'cured' 50 years ago and the debilitating health problems 80 percent of the polio survivors are experiencing today. Polio is a disease of paradoxes, the major one being that although the threat of the 'dreaded disease' ended with the Salk vaccine in 1954, many polio survivors are now experiencing the onset of Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS), new, but related symptoms which may include chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, intolerance to cold, joint pain and more. In his ground breaking book, Dr Bruno has sounded an alarming wake-up call for both doctors and PPS sufferers, including a large number who were originally misdiagnosed with something other than polio and can now pursue the medical help they need.
