The Science of Vaccine Damage

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted
several studies 1,2 to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the
immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening
immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research
because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood
Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in
the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the

The vaccinated, but not the non-vaccinated, dogs in the Purdue
studies developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals,
including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C,
cardiolipin and collagen.

This means that the vaccinated dogs —but not the non-vaccinated
dogs—were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in
tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation
between tissues and organs in a living organism. The vaccinated
Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is
involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion,
spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells.
Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural
intelligence of cells.

Autoantibodies to cardiolipin are frequently found in patients with
the serious disease systemic lupus erythematosus and also in
individuals with other autoimmune diseases. The presence of elevated
anti-cardiolipin antibodies is significantly associated with clots
within the heart or blood vessels, in poor blood clotting,
haemorrhage, bleeding into the skin, foetal loss and neurological
conditions. The Purdue studies also found that vaccinated dogs were
developing autoantibodies to their own collagen. About one quarter of
all the protein in the body is collagen. Collagen provides structure
to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and
connecting them with the skeleton. It is no wonder that Canine Health
Concern's 1997 study of 4,000 dogs showed a high number of dogs
developing mobility problems shortly after they were vaccinated (noted
in my 1997 book, What Vets Don't Tell You About Vaccines).

Perhaps most worryingly, the Purdue studies found that the vaccinated
dogs had developed autoantibodies to their own DNA. Did the alarm
bells sound? Did
the scientific community call a halt to the vaccination program? No.
Instead, they stuck their fingers in the air, saying more research is
needed to ascertain whether vaccines can cause genetic damage.
Meanwhile, the study dogs were found good homes, but no long-term
follow-up has been conducted. At around
the same time, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
Vaccine-Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force initiated several studies
to find out why
160,000 cats each year in the USA develop terminal cancer at their
vaccine injection sites.3 The fact that cats can get vaccine-induced
cancer has been acknowledged by veterinary bodies around the world,
and even the British Government acknowledged it through its Working
Group charged with the task of
looking into canine and feline vaccines4 following pressure from Canine
Health Concern. What do you imagine was the advice of the AVMA Task
Force, Veterinary bodies and governments? "Carry on vaccinating until
we find out why vaccines are killing cats, and which cats are most
likely to die."

In America, in an attempt to mitigate the problem, they're vaccinating
cats in the tail or leg so they can amputate when cancer appears.
Great advice if it's not your cat amongst the hundreds of thousands on
the "oops" list. But other species are okay—right? Wrong. In August
2003, the Journal of Veterinary Medicine carried an Italian study
which showed that dogs also develop vaccine-induced cancers at their
injection sites.5 We already know that vaccine-site cancer is a
possible sequel to human vaccines, too, since the Salk polio vaccine
was said to carry a monkey retrovirus (from cultivating the vaccine on
monkey organs) that produces inheritable cancer. The monkey retrovirus
SV40 keeps turning up in human cancer sites. It is also widely
acknowledged that vaccines can cause a fast-acting, usually fatal,
disease called autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AIHA). Without
treatment, and frequently with treatment, individuals can die in agony
within a matter of days. Merck, itself a multinational vaccine
manufacturer, states in The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy
that> autoimmune haemolytic anaemia may be caused by modified
live-virus vaccines, as do Tizard's Veterinary Immunology (4th
edition) and the Journal of> Veterinary Internal Medicine.6 The
British Government's Working Group, despite being staffed by
vaccine-industry consultants who say they are ndependent, also
acknowledged this fact. However, no one warns the pet owners before
their animals are subjected to an unnecessary booster, and very few
owners are told why after their pets die of AIHA.

A Wide Range of Vaccine-induced Diseases

We also found some worrying correlations between vaccine events and
the onset of arthritis in our 1997 survey. Our concerns were
compounded by research
in the human field. The New England Journal of Medicine, for example,
reported that it is possible to isolate the rubella virus from
affected joints in children vaccinated against rubella. It also told
of the isolation of viruses from the peripheral blood of women with
prolonged arthritis following vaccination.-7 Then, in 2000, CHC's
findings were confirmed by research which showed that polyarthritis
and other diseases like amyloidosis, which affects organs in dogs,
were linked to the combined vaccine given to dogs.8 There is a huge
body of research, despite the paucity of funding from the vaccine
industry, to confirm that vaccines can cause a wide range of brain and
central nervous system damage. Merck itself states in its Manual that
vaccines (i.e., its own products) can cause encephalitis: brain
inflammation/-damage. In some cases, encephalitis involves lesions in
the brain and throughout the central nervous system. Merck states that
"examples are the encephalitides following measles, chickenpox,
rubella, smallpox vaccination, vaccinia, and many other less well
defined viral infections".

When the dog owners who took part in the CHC survey reported that
their dogs developed short attention spans, 73.1% of the dogs did so
within three months of a vaccine event. The same percentage of dogs
was diagnosed with epilepsy within three months of a shot (but usually
within days). We also found that 72.5% of dogs that were considered by
their owners to be nervous and of a worrying disposition, first
exhibited these traits within the three-month post-vaccination period.

I would like to add for the sake of Oliver, my friend who suffered
from paralysed rear legs and death shortly after a vaccine shot, that
"paresis" is listed in Merck's Manual as a symptom of encephalitis.
This is defined as muscular weakness of a neural (brain) origin which
involves partial or incomplete paralysis, resulting from lesions at
any level of the descending pathway from the brain. Hind limb
paralysis is one of the potential consequences. Encephalitis,
incidentally, is a disease that can manifest across the scale from
mild to severe and can also cause sudden death.

Organ failure must also be suspected when it occurs shortly after a
vaccine event. Dr Larry Glickman, who spearheaded the Purdue research
into post-vaccination biochemical changes in dogs, wrote in a letter
to Cavalier Spaniel breeder Bet Hargreaves: "Our ongoing studies of
dogs show 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. I do believe that the heart
conditions in Cavalier King
Charles Spaniels could be the end result of repeated immunisations by
vaccines containing tissue culture contaminants that cause a
progressive immune response directed at connective tissue in the heart
valves. The clinical manifestations would be more pronounced in dogs
that have a genetic predisposition [although] the findings should be
generally applicable to all dogs regardless of their breed."

I must mention here that Dr Glickman believes that vaccines are a
necessary evil, but that safer vaccines need to be developed.

Vaccines Stimulate an Inflammatory Response

The word "allergy" is synonymous with "sensitivity" and
"inflammation"-. It should, by rights, also be synonymous with the
word "vaccination"-. This is what vaccines do: they sensitise (render
allergic) an individual in the process of forcing them to develop
antibodies to fight a disease threat. In other words, as is
acknowledged and accepted, as part of the vaccine process the body
will respond with inflammation. This may be apparently temporary or it
may be longstanding.

Holistic doctors and veterinarians have known this for at least 100
years. They talk about a wide range of inflammatory or "-itis"
diseases which arise shortly after a vaccine event. Vaccines, in fact,
plunge many individuals into an allergic state. Again, this is a
disorder that ranges from mild all the way through to the suddenly
fatal. Anaphylactic shock is the culmination: it's where an individual
has a massive allergic reaction to a vaccine and will die within
minutes if adrenaline or its equivalent is not administered. There are
some individuals who are genetically not well placed to withstand the
vaccine challenge. These are the people (and animals are "people",
too) who have inherited faulty B and T cell function. B and T cells
are components within the immune system which identify foreign
invaders and destroy them, and hold the invader in memory so that they
cannot cause future harm. However, where inflammatory responses are
concerned, the immune system overreacts and causes unwanted effects
such as allergies and other inflammatory conditions. Merck warns in
its Manual that patients with, or from families with, B and/or T cell
immunodeficiencies should not receive live-virus vaccines due to the
risk of severe or fatal infection. Elsewhere, it lists features of B
and T cell immunodeficiencies as food allergies, inhalant allergies,
eczema, dermatitis, neurological deterioration and heart disease. To
translate, people with these conditions can die if they receive
live-virus vaccines. Their immune systems are simply not competent
enough to guarantee a healthy reaction to the viral assault from
modified live-virus vaccines.

Modified live-virus (MLV) vaccines replicate in the patient until an
immune response is provoked. If a defence isn't stimulated, then the
vaccine continues to replicate until it gives the patient the very
disease it was intending to prevent. Alternatively, a deranged immune
response will lead to inflammatory conditions such as arthritis,
pancreatitis, colitis, encephalitis and any number of autoimmune
diseases such as cancer and leukaemia, where the body attacks its own

A new theory, stumbled upon by Open University student Gary Smith,
explains what holistic practitioners have been saying for a very long
time. Here is
what a few of the holistic vets have said in relation to their patients:
Dr Jean Dodds: "Many veterinarians trace the present problems with
allergic and immunologic diseases to the introduction of MLV

Christina Chambreau, DVM: "Routine vaccinations are probably the worst
thing that we do for our animals. They cause all types of illnesses,
but not directly to where we would relate them definitely to be caused
by the vaccine."10

Martin Goldstein, DVM: "I think that vaccines...are leading killers of
dogs and cats in America today."" Dr Charles E. Loops, DVM:
"Homoeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have
maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they
provide benefits."12

Mike Kohn, DVM: "In response to this [vaccine] violation, there have
been increased autoimmune diseases (allergies being one component),
epilepsy, neoplasia [tumours], as well as behavioural problems in
small animals."13
