Equine flu outbreak forces British racing shutdown, raises fears for famous Cheltenham Festival
Many diseases are caused because the body does not naturally produce enough of a certain chemical or protein. Such diseases can be controlled with drugs that contain the deficient protein. These drugs are synthetically produced by pharmaceutical companies and can be very expensive to manufacture.
Dr Herron and her colleagues managed to reduce the costs by inserting a human gene – which normally produces the protein in humans – into the part of the chickens’ DNA involved with producing the white in the chickens’ eggs. READ MORE…
Paraphrasing a Lewis Carroll poem —
Speak roughly to your little dog.
And beat him when he seizes.
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases.
Imepitoin, sold under the brand name Pexion from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. of St. Joseph, Missouri, is an anticonvulsant used in veterinary medicine to treat epilepsy in dogs. It was originally developed to treat epilepsy in humans, but clinical trials were terminated upon findings of unfavorable metabolic differences between smokers and non-smokers.
Anticonvulsants are also increasingly being used in the treatment of so-called bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, since many seem to act as mood stabilizers.
Pexion is similar to Valium and other benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety drugs or minor tranquilizers), acting as a low affinity partial agonist of the benzodiazepine receptor, which means that it acts in the brain similar to a benzodiazepine. It is very unusual for any dog with epilepsy to become completely seizure free even after they have begun taking this drug.
VLA Comment: As in humans who have the same liver enzyme system called “Superfamily of Cytochrome P 450 that detoxifies poisons, animals also have the same detox liver system. In humans the cyp 450 enzyme system is not mature until the age of 3 (some say age of 10)
In the above hotlink you will see the chart of ingredients in vaccines and the corresponding need to have a mature cyp450 system in order to metabolize it out of the body. Vaccines with these excipients given to infants and children under 3 are poison to these little immature bodies resulting in all sorts of disease, inflammation, allergies, eczema, autism, ADHD.
Dogs and cats are now receiving many vaccines – mandated. These vaccines have ingredients that are poisoning the animal and causing future illness undetected and apparently not tied to the vaccine….oh no, in couldn’t be the vaccine!!! But because they too have immature liver function, domestic animals are also being poisoned and we are paying through the nose to try to fix them whether it be arthritis, eczema, obesity, seizures, etc…just like humans.
The authors statistically analyzed insurance claims data between 2002 and 2007 for thousands of children ages 6 to 15 for any relationships between various vaccinations (influenza, tetanus & diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, meningitis, varicella) and various subsequent psychiatric diagnoses (obsessive-compulsive disorder, anorexia nervosa, tic disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder).
The overall conclusion of this analysis implies that the onset of some psychiatric disorders may be related to some children having recently received a vaccination.
The following data was taken from the IQVia Total Patient Tracker Database for Year 2017, extracted April 2018.

Jump to DOG-HUMAN CYP SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES – The cytochrome P450 (CYP) drug metabolizing enzymes are essential for the efficient elimination of many clinically used drugs. … Canine CYP1A2, which metabolizes phenacetin, caffeine, and theophylline, is the most widely studied polymorphic canine CYP.
On Wednesday, a federal judge knocked down Iowa’s notorious ag-gag law as unconstitutional, according to Courthouse News Service. The law, put in place in 2012 by the Iowa legislature with the support of the agriculture industry, prevents animal rights activists and undercover journalists from reporting on animal abuse at livestock farms. Finally, U.S. District Judge James Gritzner in Des Moinse has decided the law violates the First Amendment.
“The law has the effect of criminalizing undercover investigations of certain agricultural facilities,” Gritzner wrote in his decision.
Unsurprisingly, the investigations by activists and journalists covered by the law have exposed truly horrific treatment of animals by the industry.
“For example, in 2011, an undercover investigation at Iowa Select Farms produced reports of workers hurling small piglets onto a concrete floor,” Gritzner wrote in his decision. “Another investigation at Iowa’s Sparboe Farms, documented reported mistreatment of hens and chicks. And yet another, conducted by PETA, exposed workers at a Hormel Foods supplier in Iowa ‘beating pigs with metal rods,’ ‘sticking clothespins into pigs’ eyes and faces, and a supervisor kicking a young pig in the face, abdomen, and genitals to make her move while telling the investigator, ‘You gotta beat on the bitch. Make her cry.’” READ MORE>>
Not only have pigs been fed Ractopamine for years in the USA, which makes them leaner but may give humans a heart attack. What’s more the drug is banned in 160 countries including China. Since China took over Smithfield, the leader in USA hog production, one would only hope that they have eliminated the practice. However, here is something novel in the Food industry.
2 US companies have teamed up to jointly cooperate on a breeding plan to have male piglets born castrated. Read More…
VLA Comment: Most religious and metaphysical organizations and their practioners do not eat pork. Good thinking!
Could the ballooning rate of sick pets, and a burgeoning multi-billion dollar veterinary industry, relate to the immunocompromising role of feline retrovirus-contaminated vaccines given to millions of animals around the world?
A highly concerning study published in Biologicals entitled, “Endogenous retroviruses as potential hazards for vaccines,” revealed that manufacturing processes employed for animal vaccines have virtually no safeguards against contamination by surreptitious retroviruses which are present within the master seed stock of cells used to produce them. As stated in the study: Read more…
EXCERPT: Dr. Robb says that he has seen yearly rabies vaccines make pets vomit, become ill, develop immune disorders, cancers, and has even seen the shot kill the pets of unsuspecting owners. One of the largest problems with veterinary vaccines is that these inoculations are of the one-size-fits-all variety. A 5-pound Chihuahua will receive the same dose of vaccine as a 100-pound bulldog. Does that seem logical to you? read more…
But with Little Kitty becoming increasingly isolated, it was time to give it a try. She got a medical marijuana card and purchased two edible oils made for pets and derived from cannabis that she squirts into her pet’s mouth.
Little Kitty doesn’t hide anymore. In fact, she’s more like her old self: sunbathing on the living room carpet, playing with Ms. Mastramico’s other cat, Valentina. “When I’ve given it to her, she’s never acted high: falling face-first into her food bowl, chowing down,” Ms. Mastramico said. “She comes out and socializes, wants to be in your lap, wants to be petted. It’s a very noticeable difference.”
Other animal lovers who have turned to cannabis-based products to alleviate a host of pet maladies, including seizures, inflammation, anxiety and pain, are reporting similar results. Although they have not been approved by regulators, marijuana-based treatments are being used not only for cats and dogs, but for pigs, horses and domesticated wild animals.
The report is the most complete survey of land bird numbers to date and attempts to assess the health of populations on a continental basis. It concludes that, while there are still a lot of birds in the sky, there aren’t anywhere near as many as there used to be.
Evening grosbeaks are down 92 per cent since 1970. Snowy owls have lost 64 per cent of their numbers. The Canada warbler has lost 63 per cent of it population.
