Scientific Evidence of Vaccine Damage in Dogs

Although many parents witness their children’s health deteriorate rapidly after vaccination, we are repeatedly told that there is no evidence that vaccines cause damage. The main reason this claim can be made is that there has never been a study done on humans that compared the vaccinated to the unvaccinated. The control group either receives a different experimental vaccine or regular ‘baby shots’. The closest we can get to seeing the true extent of the damage that vaccines do is through animal studies. While it is hard to find raw data from animal studies that are done for the purpose of testing a vaccine ultimately to be marketed to humans, some studies done on the effects of vaccines on dogs and monkeys are avaiable to us, and the results don’t look good.

The following link will take you to a summary of the evidence of vaccine damage on dogs. Aside from the fact that you can extrapolate the results to mean that vaccines likely cause such damage in humans as well, isn’t this enough to make you re-think vaccinating your pet?

Here is an excerpt from the report:

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.

Dogs and cats, like our children, are more and more often falling victim to auto-immune diseases and cancer. In recent years, reports of ‘autistic’ dogs have even surfaced. Whether you have a pet or a child, you owe it to them to make an informed decision when it comes to vaccinating them. And likely, if you are truly informed, you will find that you cannot possibly submit them to this kind of assault.

Food Dyes, Cancer, Hyperactivity and Parenting

It is now coming to light that many food dyes are known or suspected to be carcinogenic. I find it interesting that the Reagan administration specifically prevented the banning of Red 3, even thought the FDA already recognized it as a carinogen.

In addition to their carcinogenicity, this article refers to dyes causing hyperactivity in children. I have personally suspected dyes to be implicated in causing bad behaviour in my own son, but this is of course not something I can prove, and especially given the fact that they are usually present in candy in conjunction with large amounts of sugar, which, as I mentioned in a previous post, has been shown to cause increased ‘inappropriate behaviour’. Nonetheless, I am suspicious of dyes and avoid giving them to my child.

Since I was on the subject of dyes, I thought I would look into whether there has been any clear link shown between them and hyperaactivity. Most mainstream articles will refer to ‘anecdotal evidence’ or a ‘belief that dyes are related to hyperactivity’, but no more than that.

The following study did show that when children with ADD were given a large dose of food dyes, as a challenge after eating dye-free foods for several days, they showed impaired performance on tests, although non-ADD children were not affected in this way.

Whether they cause hyperactivity or not, the fact that they cause cancer is enough to get them on my no-no list when it comes to feeding my son. I find it interesting that when we go out, people frequently offer him candy, sometimes to please him when he is upset, but sometimes just as a reward for being his cute self. Lately, when these grinning would-be tooth fairies approach brandishing some brightly colored ball of corn syrup and Red 3 on a stick, I throw myself between my son and the offending offering and with round eyes, say in a hushed voice ‘Thank you but, no, he is allergic!”.
I know they mean well, but I also know that if he eats that thing, there will be Hell for me to pay later on.

My son has been a really good sport about this. When we go into a grocery store, he points to the candy, gum, potato chips, etc and declares “That’s junk, it will make you fat!”
I don’t know where he got the part about it making you fat. I only said it would make you sick.
Unfortunately, three-year-olds are known to be uncommonly candid and lately he has taken to commenting about other people at the store and what’s in their grocery carts. As we pass an overweight man with a cartfull of Fritos and Coke, my son explains in a loud voice, “That man’s really fat cause he eats a lot of junk!”.
I feel obligated to show some kind of displeasure even though I know that the best strategy to squelch a behaviour is to ignore it completely, so I say something like “It’s not nice to comment about how other people look. It hurts their feelings”. But then I have to admit to him, when we’re out of earshot, that he’s probably right about the cause of that man’s weight problem, although that’s not a reason to be rude about it.
We pass a package of freezer pops and my son says “Mommy! I want that!”. I ask him why he wants it. Is it because it has pictures on the outside that make it look like there is something fun inside? He says it is. So I explain to him that the people who make that product put those pictures on there on purpose to make little kids want to buy it, but that just because it has nice pictures on the outside doesn’t mean it has something good on the inside and that as a matter of fact, there is only junk on the inside.
He looks at mean and said ‘Yeeeaaaaah?’ in amazement, but he no longer wants the freezer pops.

Sugar Does Make Kids Go Nuts

Although most parents will tell you little Johnny goes bananas after Sweet-Tarts, very little research has been done on whether and how eating sugar affects children’s behaviour. I have personally seen my 3-year-old son go from acting like a nice, co-operative kid to crawling around on all fours in the store after having a coconut water drink with sugar in it, earning me those dreaded looks of scorn and unsolicited parenting advice. And by the wat, i can’t help noticing that it is always the childless who are the most liberal with the latter and seem to have it all figured out based on something they read or watched on the Life channel.

The following study looked at the effect sugar had on children, and concluded that consuming sugar was followed by more displays of ‘inappropriate’ behaviour 45-60 minutes later.
Inappropriate? Like crawling around in the grocery store? That kind of inappropriate? From my own anectodal evidence, I would have to agree with their findings.
