New Vaccine Protects Against This Unpleasant Aroma…

Pharma has a new vaccine to make pork "smell better" when cooked.

Oink! Oink! Oink!  No, I’ve not lost my marbles but, perhaps, some veterinary medicine folks may have.  Pigs now are in line for a new veterinary vaccine with two applications.  The first dose is the primer; the second stimulates the response.  The vaccine is Improvest® developed by Pfizer Animal Health.  I guess since vaccines are so profitable in humans, why not go after the money pot hiding within veterinary medicine.

It seems some market-dressed pig meat, a.k.a. pork, gives off an unpleasant aroma, boar taint, which farmers and U.S. veterinarians want to control.  Question: Aren’t pigs supposed to be pigs and smell?

According to Pfizer’s website [1], Improvest® is a “gonadotropin releasing factor analog—diphtheria toxoid conjugate.”  An analog is a switching-like mechanism that, in this case, apparently is directed to the pigs’ gonads thereby interrupting hormone production.  Mirriam Webster Medical Dictionary defines conjugate as a chemical compound formed by the union of two compounds or united with another compound.

Whatever formula they came up with in the new pig vaccine, it is supposed to—you ready for this?—“protect against unpleasant aromas that can occur when cooking pork from some male pigs.”

The vaccine, which is given in two applications, is intended to act like a non-surgical castration to reduce boar taint.  Back up!  Did you catch the diphtheria toxoid conjugate?  So, it seems that the diphtheria toxin is used to induce the switching mechanism, if I interpret what little science is said about this new vaccine.  After all, it’s a patented trade secret.

How do they (Pfizer and FDA) really know if those vaccinated piggies won’t contract, spread, or possibly host a morphing of a diphtheria organism?  Where are the studies, please, that address those issues?  As if humans don’t have enough problems with organisms morphing from excessive antibiotic use!  Plus more chemical medication in animals used as food.

I wonder if Joel Salatin—at sustainable agriculture Polyface Farm in rural Virginia—will vaccinate his pigs?  I don’t think so!  I spent a wonderful September Saturday there once and his pigs are something to behold, especially the piglets.  And no pig smell!  No animal odor anywhere on Joel’s exquisite farm, plus no manure pits that I could see or smell.

It seems that farmed pigs may be going the same route as cows that are injected near their tails with genetically modified bst (bovine somatotropin) to produce more milk that also induces mastitis in cow udders requiring more antibiotics be given to dairy cows, not to mention the pus in their milk which consumers drink because of pasteurization, and that’s okay to drink—apparently.

If one reads the public relations material at Pfizer’s website [1], it seems that this new pig vaccine is going to save the world from greenhouse emissions and carbon foot printing.  Pfizer also provides an Improvest Consumer Resource Center website [2], which I encourage you to study.  It reassures consumers about the safety of pork vaccinated with its newly-FDA-approved-vaccine.

I remember while studying nutrition the health problem with pork primarily was trichinosis.  We don’t hear much about that anymore; now it apparently is the cooking odor on consumers’ outdoor or kitchen grilles that has to be modified by farmers using a vaccine made from diphtheria toxins.  What’s next?

  •  This just confirms that they are stark raving mad, yet I guess there is method (read profits) in it.

    While I appreciate the effort, they haven’t gone nearly far enough. How ’bout a vaccine to eliminate that horrible snorting pigs do?; and one to give them a social security number, a college education and a respectable job, like a bank teller, or a cab driver? I mean, if you’re gonna clean ’em up, clean ’em up.

    Or maybe a Senator – who else would be better suited to introduce pork barrel legislation?

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Shawn,
    Love your sense of intellectual humor.  Thanks!

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Erwin,
    How about reading in between the lines of this story.  Are they genetically reprogramming pigs in ways that can effectuate other species?  Guess which species?
    Is this vaccine a ‘trial balloon’?

  • Irma

    I stopped eating pork twenty years ago.I will have to change to a vegan lifestyle with organic and non-GMO foods to protect myself from all this craziness.

  • Suzysunshine

     Two things come to mind.  If they are going to castrate male pigs with this vaccine, they won’t be able to reproduce.  So the farmers who use it are going to deadend their pork production????  Secondly, this could be a setup for a new vaccine for people, to protect against “swine diphtheria” which will certainly be on the horizon!  Way to go, Pfizer!

  • Lorric

    These
    people are completely insane monsters. Are they claiming this vaccine
    is safe because they already put it in the TDAP? Is that why I have
    never heard a bass voice in any male under age 50 in the US??????????
    Ask yourself – when was the last time you heard a normal bass voice?
    (that was not in some old guy)

    A very good point. My husband, now 82, used to sing in Exeter Cathedral. He certainly looked up when I read your letter out to him….. it seems that it’s much the same on this side of The Pond. Young men are becoming more and more effeminate. And as for girls, when did you last see a decent hour-glass figure???

  • Pork

    maybe they should just make all pork smell like bacon

  • Marilyn

     I agree. This is just a way to kill off another food supply source. This will eventually make the pork either inedible or it will give us another disease Big Pharma can invent a new “cure” for and charge us mountains of money for the drug.

  • Highnz

     Here
    we go! Unnecessary vaccines, who knows what the long term side effects
    are and if it will harm humans or not? My bet is its going to be used to
    manipulate proteins in the meat. Probably going to use malnutrition before releasing deadly viruses in the air. . Just sayin. Might of already began. http://www.kmtr.com/news/local/story/Bubonic-plague-case-confirmed-in-Prineville/Co9wqODGC0q1acmBQl1CuQ.cspx

  • Actually, you guys better read about binary weapons.  This sounds too much like them.  

  • I am definately sure that the “cooking odour” is just a fake cause for having another vaccine for pigs…maybe it’s really meant for us! I’m glad I don’t eat meat anymore so Pfizer you have to come up with some other crazy idea for vegans…by the way:although I eat no meat I eat eggs and fish and I think eggs have an unpleasant odour and so do fish…do they want to modify everything? Come on – this is REALLY ridiculous! Reading this after hearing what the Chinese are doing with cows so that they can provide HUMAN BREAST MILK /yes you read it right/ I have to ask: what will come next??? 

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Gina,
    Got a link for any information about binary weapons?  Then please post it so VacTruth readers can know what you talk about.  Thanks!

  • Meryl Dorey

    If this vaccine is supposed to disrupt the male hormone production in pigs – what will it do to the men who eat the meat and to babies in the womb of mothers who eat pork? We are already having an epidemic of infertility, will this just make the situation worse? If people don’t wake up soon to what is being done to our foods through things like vaccination, antibiotic abuse and hormones, it will soon be too late for us as a community. 

  • petwizard

    This is a case of Eugenics at its finest. Decrease population through food, water (flouride) vaccines and chemtrails. The global elites who are trying to run this planet intend to kill us. 

  • manikchia

    Sweet Jesus. I can’t even begin to list the exhaustive benefits to my family for not eating meat! As frightening as the agriculture trade is on its own, how many more, concentrated doses of toxins and drugs are people ingesting by eating the meat that feeds on the GM plants PLUS being injected with all this sort of garbage?! It makes my stomach roll.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Petwizard,
    It seems more and more people are beginning to think like what you say in your comment.  I wonder why.

  • 441019

    This is scary. There is no way of knowing what adverse effects there might be down the road, either to pigs or humans or both. My mother used to say, “Don’t fool with Mother Nature!”

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Novembersong,
    Um, pardon me, but I have one.  I’m a size 8-10 with a real hourglass figure.  Does that count?

  • petwizard

     Because it is in their own papers. Do a search for eugenics, or better yet listen to prisonplanet.com.  The population reduction agenda is no secret.

    Another reason to become vegetarian! OMG! Sickening! So glad I went veggie. And these poor animals. Are they not poked and abused enough? The whole thing is sick.

  • It makes about as much sense as this information. The next thing you know, they will be vaccinating, trees, plants, and garden vegetables?

    Boar meat has the odor and are sold for nearly nothing on the market. Few pigs are allowed to grow up as boars. 

  • OUTRAGES!!!

  •  Binary weapons are two part weapons where the recipient is infected with a strain of something that can later be “triggered” to cause death, cancer or other effects.  The Sunshine project used to investigate this stuff and they lost their funding.

    These are some stories about the vaccine-related stuff.

    This is about Dr. Sue Arrigo  who tried to report a number of irregularities and had her house blown up.

    Read the smokershistory site.  Look for the “special cancer project”

    I will give you a few hints about BINARIES.  They found out decades ago that LEUKEMIA was related to the dog corona virus.  The corona virus is related to what was in SARS.  Look for a wave of leukemia and blood problems in China to begin appearing in the news in the next 2 years.   

    How do I know this?  I am a very inspired investigative reporter who sees connections that many people don’t because of my background.  My dad was a doctor, my mom was a nurse.  I got really high scores in TWO areas on my SATs and GREs: verbal and science.  It’s weird, but that’s how my brain is wired.  Also, there are more stories on this topic, but they are almost all scrubbed from the web by the diligent if misguided people who imagine that being good order takers will give them a seat on the ships, in the DUMBs or wherever the “elite” go to hide when everything gets really bad.

    Hello all,
    Just thought that I would shed some light on this topic. 
    1.  Most male pigs raised for pork are castrated in the US.  This has been happening since the 1950’s when artificial insemination allowed farmers to not need so many intact boars around.   This product has been used in 100 countries, and was started in Austrailia in the 1990’s Up until this product, the only way to castrate was with a scalpel (ie cutting the testes off).  This injection is supposed to be a way to avoid doing that procedure.

    2. Why are the male pigs castrated, you ask?
    Boar taint.  It is an odor that some intact male pigs give off.  People do not like the taste of this meat, as it has a urine-like taste. 

    3. This is a vaccine, not an antibiotic.

    4.  Pigs are vaccinated with other vaccines to keep them healthy and safe from disease; this vaccine will just keep the boys…boys.  They will not exhibit boar like behavior (aggression, mounting etc…), and they can play with the girls with no trouble.  Remember, that these are not the breeding animals, but the offspring that end up on our dinnerplates.

    Hope this helps!

    It is in the interest of the industry to stress on the boar taint without explaining how it could be modified . Some try to produce and sell boar that have not been castrated ( in Spain , traditionnally, this is more developped) . Breeding methods as well as nutrition have an impact on boar taint …that is not expressed by every boar …and that is not felt as disgusting by all consumers .

    This so called “vaccine” has benefited from the – justified –  emotion raised in the public opinion by the common practice of castration without any anaesthesia ( several european countries have introduced some regulation  in this field ) !!!! [ organic farming is not better than conventionnal farming concerning castration ]

    New techniques are developped to trace the meat that expresses the “boar taint” cf http://www.icomst2009.dk/fileadmin/documents/ICOMST_Haugen_PlenaryG_19082009.pdf

  • miko

    Is the vaccine for the pig or is it altering the pig meat somehow and people will suffer the sideeffects on purpose.

  • Nellie Wilbers

    I think the goal of this vaccine it to remove the need for painful castration procedures. Castration is done on piglets with no anesthesia or analgesia. They literally hold them down and rip their testicles off. The procedure is not only painful but incredibly stressful to be handled (predators pick them up before killing them). Coming from a veterinary background this is probably an attempt to improve welfare and also satisfy consumer preference for eat that doesn’t have boar taint. But from what I’ve learned from my animal welfare class and personal experience there is no way to improve welfare in industrial agriculture. All systems have good and bad. What vets and consumers don’t realize is that we need to throw out the whole model and move towards sustainable farms like Polyface.
