At present, one's cluincc of preventing It is to follow certain measures which the researchers agree have defensive value. Dental Cire Advised "Have children's teeth filled when cavities are present'. Why? Because the iwlio organism is a nerve loving virus. It chooses to travel over nerve pathways. Dental pulp is richly supplied with nerves. :\(fording easy routes to the brain and spinal cord. Dental cavities call expose Ihc dental pulp and leave a route for tlie polio virus. "Six cases of infantile paralysis ; studied developed polio within ten days aflcr a tooth extraction. Therefore, it is likely that exposure of raw nerve areas offers an inviting ficlrt to the virus, just as a tonsil removed leaves a similar raw area in the throal. For this reason, doctors generally advise against a tonsillectomy during a time of epidemic polio. "What is the connection between summer or hot ueather and the hundreds of eases oj polio during these summer months? A possible factor may be insects which arc more prevalent in hot 'weather. It has been proved that the polio virus is found in human excreta and sewage. H. is eliminated from tiie alimentary tract through which it may also enter—the month and throat as well as the intestines belonging to this tract. This suggests the possibility that the virus may be acquired from contaminated food, and the house-flies, ah OF AM, SPRING AND SUMMER tionaf Foundation for Infantile Paralysis as follows: "Call tlie doctor if there nre such symptoms as heaache. nausea, a cold, upset stomach, muscle soreness or stiffness, or unexplained lever.

Flies Miiy Be Carriers "Lii 1044 and 1948, the North Carolina epidemic offered a chance to test this theory. The epidemic occurred in a rural region where outdoor toilets were general and at a lime of year, June, when the weather was hot and (lies abundant. Doctors wciiL into tlie area They bought bananas [rom (he local stores. They sliced \\\R fruit into dishes and plated Uu'm in the kitchens and back port-lies of the homos of the polio victims. v 'P!ic.s swarmed upon the dishes of sliced bananas. They were tare- fully protected from other sources of contamination and then fed to . two chimpanzees, the species closest I to man in polio susceptibility. The lumps diet not become paralysed, he virus, however, was abundant | ti their excreta. Although not developing polio immediately after Mting the fly-speaked bananas, hey \\eie quite capable of spread- ng the virus. This state continued for more than a month. Moreover, t h e virus recovered from the chimps 1 intestinal wastes pir,.., _ cha racleristic polio when cd into monkeys. •'A logical conclusion from these 5cimlific tests is that at times of polio epidemic, [he virus is present Ui seawaye and human wastes, that Hies can spread the virsis to food.
