Dust mite allergies are extremely common among dogs and cats (and humans), but because house dust mites are microscopic, many pet owners think they couldn’t possibly present much of a problem. Read more...
Which Vaccines Might Be Produced Using Aborted Fetal Cell Lines?
Chicken pox vaccine is not the only vaccine manufactured in this way. According to Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI), the following 24 vaccines are produced using cells from aborted fetuses and/or contain DNA, proteins, or related cellular debris from cell cultures derived from aborted human fetuses:
|Polio||PolioVax, Pentacel, DT Polio Absorbed, Quadracel (Sanofi)|
|Measles, Mumps, Rubella||MMR II, Meruvax II, MRVax, Biovax, ProQuad, MMR-V (Merck)
Priorix, Erolalix (GlaxoSmithKline)
|Varicella (Chickenpox and Shingles)||Varivax, ProQuad, MMR-V, Zostavax (Merck)
|Hepatitis A||Vaqta (Merck)
Havrix, Twinrix (GlaxoSmithKine)
Avaxim, Vivaxim (Sanofi)
Among the cell lines that have been used we find WI-38 derived from the lung tissue of a three-month-old girl fetus. Another cell line, MRC-5 derived from lung tissue of a 14 week old male fetus. These cell lines was derived in the 60′s and 70`s, but came into use in vaccines at a later date. The vaccines that have been cultivated on these lines is rubella (German measles), varicella (chickenpox), hepatitis A and rabies.
Virus strain used in MMR vaccine rubella-component are also taken from aborted fetal tissue. This strain is called RA 27/3 and was obtained from a fetus whose mother had rubella during pregnancy and performed an abortion because of risk of fetal damage. RA 27/3 is also grown in cell line WI-38. Read more...Cell lines and virus strains from aborted fetuses
All animals are biologically equipped to assimilate and digest foods they were designed to eat. For example, earthworms are naturally designed to process dirt. The entire GI tract of worms, from the mouth to the other end where waste is excreted, was designed for this purpose.
As reported in the February issue of the journal Diabetes1, researchers from the Center of Animal Biotechnology and Gene Therapy, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in Spain, used a single gene therapy session to treat dogs with type I diabetes. The dogs in the study regained their health and showed no further symptoms of disease. Some of the dogs were monitored for over four years with no recurrence of the condition. Read more…
Comment VLA editor: I hope we can consider this an animal study for humans with diabetes.
“Diabetes is associated with severe secondary complications, caused largely by poor glycemic control. Treatment with exogenous insulin fails to prevent these complications completely, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. We previously demonstrated that it is possible to generate a “glucose sensor” in skeletal muscle through co-expression of glucokinase (Gck) and insulin (Ins), increasing glucose uptake and correcting hyperglycemia in diabetic mice. Here, we demonstrate long-term efficacy of this approach in a large animal model of diabetes. A one-time intramuscular administration of adenoassociated viral vectors of serotype 1 (AAV1) encoding for Gck and Ins in diabetic dogs resulted in normalization of fasting glycemia, accelerated disposal of glucose after oral challenge, and no episodes of hypoglycemia during exercise for >4 years after gene transfer. This was associated with recovery of body weight, reduced glycosylated plasma proteins levels, and long-term survival without secondary complications. Conversely, exogenous insulin or gene transfer for Ins or Gck alone failed to achieve complete correction of diabetes, indicating that the synergistic action of Ins and Gck are needed for full therapeutic effect. This study provides the first proof-of-concept in a large animal model for a gene transfer approach to treat diabetes.”

A new paper eviewing data from 19 animal studies shows that consuming genetically modified (GM) corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys. See review by Mike Adams…
Study abstract (open access) We reviewed 19 studies of mammals fed with commercialized genetically modified soybean and maize which represent, per trait and plant, more than 80% of all environmental genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cultivated on a large scale, after they were modified to tolerate or produce a pesticide. We have also obtained the raw data of 90-day-long rat tests following court actions or official requests. The data obtained include biochemical blood and urine parameters of mammals eating GMOs with numerous organ weights and histopathology findings.

COMMENT BY VLA EDITOR: If the animals for human consumption are fed organ disruptive foods and you in turn eat organ disruptive foods or you in turn feed cloned Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) livestock ,GMO grains and pesticidedvegetables found all conventional pet food it is a no wonder those who do this may need not only human health insurance but Pet insurance to mitigate the cost of chronic illnesses. But health insurance to cover the financial cost does not mitigate the emotional pain of sick and dying loved ones. Care for yourself – eat organic foods and consider what you are feeding your little guys. See www.RawPrey.com for information on Organic Raw Food diets for pets.
Excerpt: I’ll never forget Scott explaining those options to me. One was to remove part of the thyroid. Another was to prescribe a drug that may have side effects. The third option was radioactive iodine treatment, which would involve leaving Baby Boy quarantined in a treatment room for a week to 10 days until he was no longer radioactive and could go home. To Scott, none of those solutions sounded very safe for his cat.
Dr. Becker “I explained to Scott that there was no reason not to try non-toxic options first, before jumping into more traditional (and scarier) treatments. He agreed, and we decided to try homeopathy to treat Baby Boy’s thyroid problem” Read more…
From Merck…Canine influenza (Dog Flu) is an important illness that poses an emerging threat to all dogs. Nobivac® Canine Flu H3N8 vaccine:
Contains gentamicin and amphotericin B as preservatives.
1) Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, used to treat many types of bacterial infections, particularly those caused by Gram-negative organisms. Gentamicin is also ototoxic and nephrotoxic, with this toxicity remaining a major problem in clinical use.
2) The Adjuvant used inH3N8 vaccine is Aluminum based.
Comment by VLA editor: Why doesn’t this canine flu shot have mercury like human flu shots? Are anti biotics and antifungals really preservatives? This strain is said to have been transferred from horses to dogs…wonder how that happened? I remember the strange deaths of a group of grey hounds. Sounded to me at the time..that they all must have been victims of some experiment. Will we ever find out?
And here is the spin from the CDC: How long has canine influenza been around?The H3N8 equine influenza virus has been known to exist in horses for more than 40 years. In 2004, however, cases of an unknown respiratory illness in dogs (initially greyhounds) were reported. An investigation showed that this respiratory illness was caused by the equine influenza A H3N8 virus. Scientists believe that this virus jumped species (from horses to dogs) (Comment: And how did that happen in the greyhound dog stable)and has now adapted to cause illness in dogs and spread efficiently among dogs. This is now considered a new dog-specific lineage of H3N8. In September of 2005, this virus was identified by experts as “a newly emerging pathogen in the dog population” in the United States.

VLA comment: You are warned…Animal Health is following the human health model BIG BUSINESS..Pet hospitals, pet insurance, increasing vaccine schedule, deadly commercial pet foods…chronically ill animals. Just imagine if states start mandating more vaccines for animals. What a business! How much do you love your little guys? Feed your companion animals a raw diet (organic). Watch Dr. Becker’s videos and the articles on the left hand column on our www.RawPrey.com website. For information only.
I was unaware of this breed. Their manes and tails are the longest that I have seen, and I noticed that when performing on grass, their hoofs do not kick up a divot (they land flat footed).
Beautiful creatures such as these are what makes this world so special. Another wonder to God’s creation! These horses are native to the Netherlands …. It should make your day..
