    No. That was an idea by some amateur with no understanding of virology or vaccines. Also archived samples of that polio vaccine were tested and did not contain SIV.

    Also the polio vaccine was grown on a cell culture derived from monkey kidney cells and HIV was a zoonotic transfer from a chimpanzee (SIVcpz). Also the polio vaccine was developed in the 1950s, HIV was already well established in Africa at that time, the original zoonotic transfer that led to HIV-1 group M happened about 1920 plus or minus ten years.

    *sigh* That doesn't make any logical sense. They are completely different diseases. Use your brain. The polio vaccine has DEAD POLIO virus in it so your body builds an immunity to POLIO.
