The World Health Organization (WHO) is renowned for its ability to produce all types of information and reports regarding health. Some are reliable and some maybe are questionable, e.g., the swine flu pandemic of 2009 and the reclassification of the medical term “pandemic.” However, after some investigation into the H1N1 debacle that was demanded by European countries, the WHO received a ‘slap on the wrist’ for its rather cavalier ‘mistake’.
In doing research for my latest book, which I am working at trying to get finished soon, I came across some rather interesting information that I think both sides of the vaccine issue need to hear and investigate. It’s rather damning, I think, insofar as WHO research that applies in animal and veterinary medicine should be applicable to human health, after all some of us are ‘animals’, aren’t we? Let’s see what I’m talking about.
On page 305 of the report IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans: Volume 74, World Health Organization, International Agency for Research on Cancer, Feb. 23-Mar.2, 1999 http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol74/mono74.pdf
under Summary of Date Reported and Evaluation, Section 6, this appears:
6.3 Veterinary studies
Despite the large number and variety of both metallic and non-metallic internal fixation devices used in dogs in recent decades, only about 60 cases of sarcomas, primarily of bone, have been reported. In addition, four cases of sarcomas at the site of other foreign bodies have been reported in dogs. One case–control study found no association between metallic implants used to stabilize fractures in dogs and the development of bone or soft-tissue tumours. [sic]
In contrast, at least 563 cases of vaccine-associated sarcomas in cats have been reported in just six years, with an estimated annual incidence of 1–13 per 10 000 vaccinated cats. Vaccine-associated sarcomas have been mostly associated with administration of recently introduced feline vaccines containing adjuvant. Tumours [sic] that develop at vaccination sites are morphologically different from those that develop at non-vaccination sites. A cohort study found that cats developed sarcomas in a shorter time at sites used for vaccination than at non-vaccination sites and that there was an increased risk for sarcoma development with increased numbers of vaccines at a given site. [Emphasis added]
And on page 310, this:
There is limited evidence in cats for the carcinogenicity of certain feline vaccines containing adjuvants. [Emphasis added]
On page 24 under Evaluation, limited evidence is defined as:
Limited evidence of carcinogenicity: A positive association has been observed between exposure to the agent, mixture or exposure circumstance and cancer for which a causal interpretation is considered by the Working Group to be credible, but chance, bias or confounding could not be ruled out with reasonable confidence.
According to veterinarian Patricia Jordan, WHO named the veterinary vaccine adjuvant a grade 3 out of 4 carcinogen, with 4 being the most carcinogenic. The adjuvant identified is aluminum hydroxide, a component of most of the currently used veterinary vaccines. An adjuvant used also in human vaccines. [Emphasis added]
This is extremely important information since many vaccines for infant, toddlers and adult humans—not cats or dogs—also contain aluminum hydroxide, e.g., Anthrax [which as of October 2011, FDA wants to start to test on children to see how that vaccine works in kids], DTaP, DTaP-HepB-IPV, Td (Massachusetts), Hepatitis A, Hepatitis A-Hepatitis B, Hepatitis B, Tdap.
Regarding veterinary pharmaceuticals, Rabies, Leptospira, Lyme, are killed, adjuvanted vaccines. Adjuvants are vaccine components (such as aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate) used to enhance the immunological response.
So now that we know what the World Health Organization had to say about vaccine adjuvants causing cancer in our beloved pets, the sixty-four-thousand-dollar questions are:
- What are vaccines adjuvants doing to our infants who receive vaccinations at birth, at 2, 4, 6 months, and on ad infinitum, it seems?
- What are vaccine adjuvants doing to our pre-teens who are now getting the HPV vaccines?
- What are vaccine adjuvants doing to senior citizens who are encouraged to get yearly flu shots? Seems like Alzheimer’s and dementia are on the rise in that age group too.
Isn’t it about time that the U.S. Congress had the balls to demand what is going on in the name of pseudo science and vaccines that is damaging the health of the nation and raising healthcare costs exponentially? Or shouldn’t I ask that question?
