There really is no such thing as a safe vaccine. The movement "Green Our Vaccines" is a nice gesture but the chemicals/heavy metals in vaccines are only one of the issues regarding why they are SO bad for humans and for our animals.

There are also the antigens (or proteins) that the virus is grown on. Unlike bacteria, which are "alive", viruses are only dead particles they have no life of their own. They need a protein source to grow and "live" on. That protein source for canine vaccines - whatever it may be   is for the most part bovine serum/kidney cells. There is NO way to separate the DNA that the virus was grown on from the virus itself, so that DNA source from a different animal (along with whatever viruses that animal was carrying) is injected right into your dog's bloodstream. Now we all know what happens when the body detects a foreign DNA source -- the outcome is autoimmune diseases. This even stands true if the protein source used is from a canine tissue, because it is from a different dog. They have done this with feline kidney cells with disastrous results for cats. (Just like humans that have organ transplants they need to take anti-rejection meds for life because the new organ is a foreign DNA.)

A very good example of an autoimmune response is when a flea bites your dog.  The resulting itching is caused by the dog's immune system when it detects the flea's protein (antigen) through it's saliva. The dog is reacting to the foreign DNA of the flea's protein. You can only imagine the havoc that foreign DNA causes when it is injected right into your dog's body.

Then there is the whole issue of injecting a virus into the bloodstream. This is so against the way nature handles viruses. The respiratory tract of ALL mammals contain secretory IgA (an antibody which initiates the natural immune response) within the respiratory tract mucosa. Bypassing this mucosal aspect (mouth, nose and eyes) of the immune system by directly injecting organisms into the bloodstream leads to a corruption in the immune system. As a result, the pathogenic viruses or bacteria cannot be eliminated by the immune system and remain in the body where they will further grow and/or mutate as the individual is exposed to ever more antigens and toxins in the environment which continue to assault the immune system.

Very basic there are 2 parts to the immune system-- "B-cells" which create antibody and "T-cells" which paralyze and eliminate viruses and bacteria (and cancer cells) from the body after they have been coated with antibodies by the B-cells. Both arms of the immune system are needed!!

However, when a vaccine is given it stimulates B-cells only to produce antibodies to that particular virus or bacteria. These antibody coated cells then circulate through the bloodstream. Vaccinating does not activate the T-cells to clean these cells out as would happen when a virus is introduced the natural way. This is how the body is corrupted creating these antibodies with no T-cells to eliminate them. They are in constant circulation throughout the bloodstream and body and create chronic infections over time and cancers.
