A 7 month long study done in England shows that 1 out of 10 animals have an adverse reaction to vaccines.
There is ZERO scientific proof that yearly – or biannual vaccination in horses – is necessary or healthy. It drives me crazy that this practice is blindly followed without question!
Now that you know this, don’t you feel lied to? But guess who benefits from this and doesn’t care… Big Pharma!
Vaccines are a billion dollar industry! Sale of veterinary vaccines is expected to reach $20.60 BILLION by 2021. And that doesn’t include all the money made from the damage they are causing to our animal friends.
After equine spring or fall shots there is an increase of colic incidence. Chronic diseases such as laminitis, cancer, allergies, behavior problems, recurrent infections and autoimmune diseases (remember that vaccinated dogs attack their bodies) are all on the rise. And mostly you won’t be able to related back to vaccines your dog, cat or horse received because the changes are likely not immediate. Unless your veterinarian is aware of these resulting issues your animals will be vaccinated again and again and again.
Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to mount a response to a particular pathogen such as rabies for example. In order to create a strong enough reaction the producers add adjuvants that trigger an increased immune response. Unfortunately, these adjuvants are toxic to the body (aluminum, mercury, etc.).
Further more, pathogens used in the vaccine have to be grown on a medium. Commonly these are cell lines of animal origin. For example kidney cells of Rhesus monkeys, fetal cow serum, avian embryos and also from dogs, cats and hamsters.
Now imagine that left-over proteins of these cells end up in your horse’s muscle or your dog’s subcutaneous tissue, particles that don’t belong there. The immune system recognizes them and as it patrols the body, it suddenly comes across a very similar protein else where. And guess what it will do?
It will start attacking it, because that’s what it was trained to do via the vaccine.
The Purdue study found (in 1997 – that’s 20 years ago!) that vaccinated dogs were producing auto-antibodies to collagen (among many other proteins). Nearly 25% of the body’s protein is collagen. It is a major structural protein that gives strength to tendons, ligaments and also supports the skin and internal organs. Bones and teeth are made by adding mineral crystals to collagen.
One has to wonder why there are so many cruciate ligament tears in dogs or lameness issues in horses.
“Our ongoing studies of dogs shows that following routine vaccination, there is a significant rise in the level of antibodies dogs produce against their own tissues. Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA, etc.”
– Dr Glickman (he is a strong pro-vaccinator)
Laminin and fibronectin control cell growth and differentiation. If cells grow too much and in a poorly differentiated way, we call that cancer. When these two proteins are attacked by the immune system, they lose that very control.
Possibly most worrysome, the Purdue study also discovered that the vaccinated dogs were attacking their own DNA, which indicates that we are injecting inheritable damage into animals.
I see vaccine damaged animals every day. And it makes me sad and angry at the ignorance, lack of education and disclosure present in our society. I hate seeing your animals (and you) suffer!
The list of diseases and symptoms linked to vaccines is endless and is what I see on a daily basis.
First of all, please educate yourself. Don’t leave it up to your veterinarian, because most of them don’t have much knowledge when it comes to vaccines. They will even vaccinate your animal even though it’s sick – which is a big NO NO!
Second, true prevention of disease comes from creating a healthy body and immune system. Healthy animals don’t get sick and if they do, their body is able to kick it much faster and much more easily.
Third, make sure your animal really is in need for vaccine boosters. If their body has mounted a good response they don’t need another shot until the immune response has waned. Titer testing is a way to find out. Hemopet is one of the labs that will test titers for pets and horses. Let your veterinarian know.
And number four: limit the number of vaccines and only vaccinate for deadly diseases and with vaccines that have shown to actually protect the animal (not like lepto for example).
I tell my clients that it is up to them to decide what will help them sleep at night. But don’t let myths and false promises lull you into a land of unreal dreams. The awakening can be very rude. Educate yourself. You’re responsible for your animal’s well-being. Do what you know and feel is right for your friend.
To make it easier for you I’ve done a lot of research on this subject and have been able to collect ‘hidden’ information. Very soon this potentially life saving knowledge will become available to you in a condensed form. Stay tuned!
