The debate over just how safe our vaccines really are has taken center stage in recent months, much to the chagrin of the pharmaceutical industry and mainstream TV programs awash in advertising dollars from such companies.
While more and more research, and whistleblowers, have come out showing the potentially harmful effects of vaccine additives on people, the question of whether pets may also be harmed has mostly been ignored.
But forgotten research from the Purdue University of Veterinary Medicine sheds light on just how damaging certain vaccines may be to our pets after all.
Damage to Cells, Changes in the Immune System
A report from the website Dogs Naturally Magazine reintroduced studies from Purdue during which tests were conducted to find out if vaccines can cause immune system changes to dogs that could lead to “life-threatening immune-mediated diseases.”
The research was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which was looking for evidence as to whether the human immune system may also be compromised.
According to the Purdue researchers, the vaccinated dogs developed auto-antibodies to key biochemicals within their own bodies, which led their own immune system to attack their own healthy cells of various types.
Among them was fibronectin, a biochemical that helps to repair tissues and also helps cells to regrow and multiply. The vaccinated dogs also developed auto-antibodies to laminin, which helps cells to proliferation and move.
“Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells,” wrote author Catherine O’Driscoll in the article.
Auto-antibodies in the vaccinated dogs were also found to important natural body chemicals including albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin, and collagen.
In the case of cariolipin, antibodies to the biochemical are often found in human patients with serious autoimmune diseases such as lupus, and can lead to a host of harmful effects including blood clots in the heart or vessels, neurological problems, hemorrhaging and many more.
To make matters worse, the dogs even developed antibodies to their own DNA, which can cause a host of additional health problems. The result, as O’Driscoll noted, was not exactly what dog owners everywhere would have hoped: the scientific community simply issued a blanket statement that “more research is needed to ascertain whether vaccines (editor’s note: or perhaps what’s inside them) can cause genetic damage.”
No long-term follow-up has been conducted, O’Driscoll added.
But as she said in the article, there is further research available showing evidence of serious harm, including a 1997 study by Canine Health Concern showing that a high number of dogs developed mobility problems shortly after they were vaccinated (this was covered in her 1997 book ‘What Vets Don’t Tell You About Vaccines’).
