Animal Viruses in Humans and Vaccines

by Catherine J. Frompovich

One of the more scientifically-researched health information sites on the Internet is one this researcher/writer subscribes to, produced by Dr. Michael Greger, MD. Their focus is on plant-based diets and the role such diets play in relieving and/or treating disease, including disease prevention.

In January 2014, Dr. Greger produced a video, which is the site’s trademark presentation format, titled “Animal Proteins and Viruses Triggering Disease.”

The remarkable part about the information presented is this: contact with various food source animals such as slaughter houses, butchering, poultry workers, etc. and even eating animal meat as food, confirms the ability of transferring animal viruses to humans.

Dr. Greger discusses various peer-reviewed papers, plus the proclivity for contracting animal-borne viruses and diseases. Furthermore, he supports a vegan diet so as not to contract animal viruses or diseases from eating meat and animal products. That, alone, ought to be reason for not eating rare-cooked meats and/or raw meat dishes such as steak tartare. Moreover, raw fish, as in sushi and sashimi, could be sources for fish-borne parasites.

Personally, I cannot thank Dr. Greger enough for his exceptional blog, “Animal Proteins and Viruses Triggering Disease.” Why? Well, numerous animal tissues are used to grow vaccines; they are called growth media. Technically, the term is “Vaccine Production Media.” And, they should not be injected into humans!

According to the 2011 CDC’s PinkBook, here’s a listing of some vaccine production media:

  • Bovine protein
  • Calf skin
  • Chick embryo 
  • Chicken embryo (fertilized egg)
  • Fenton media containing bovine casein
  • Human diploid tissue culture, MRC-5 [aborted human fetal cell line]
  • Human diploid tissue culture, WI-38 [aborted human fetal cell line]
  • Lathan medium derived from bovine casein
  • Linggoud-Fenton medium containing bovine extract
  • Monkey kidney tissue culture, Vero (Vervet or African green monkeys)
  • Mouse brain culture
  • Rhesus fetal lung tissue culture

However, there are other media cultures, which I discuss in my October 2013 book, Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines, available on Amazon.

The remarkable part about Dr. Greger’s piece, I believe, is that it confirms animal viruses can trigger disease in humans as being more than coincidence; it’s a fact. Let’s take that a step further then. Pharmacology and medicine need to connect the dots when using foreign animal proteins, blood products, and DNA, etc. to make vaccines, which are injected into infants as young as one day old {Hepatitis B vaccine], then at 2, 4, and 6 months, and thereafter, according to the CDC and FDA’s Vaccination Schedules for Children and Adults.

In Vaccination Voodoo I discuss some of the viruses that were found in vaccines that were given to vaccinees. The measles vaccine Attenuvax®, for instance, was contaminated with the avian leucosis (myeloid leucosis cancer virus) and the avian endogenous retrovirus. Other vaccines contained equally ominous animal viral contaminants. Even veterinary vaccines were contaminated with the torque teno virus (TTV), which has a strong link with the porcine circovirus (PCV) pig virus, which contaminated the rotavirus vaccine [5] given to infants.

Pharmacology thinks that formaldehyde/Formalin [toxin inactivator per the CDC/FDA Pinkbook] will kill off viruses, so that’s probably why it’s used in just about every vaccine. However, a congressional investigation in 2003 confirmed that formaldehyde apparently did not kill the SV40 virus in the polio vaccine given to millions of children in the 1950s, ‘60s, and maybe into the early 1970s. Estimates are between 4 and 100 million people received that polio vaccine with SV40 in it. The SV40 virus can cause cancerous tumors. According to Dr. James Goedert, MD, who testified before Congress, “…no SV40 has been found in U.S. polio vaccine lots tested after 1972.” Interesting?

Besides neurotoxins, toxic chemicals, and heavy metals in vaccines, we now have undeniable proof that animal tissues can transfer viruses and trigger diseases in humans. So, why in the name of science are medicine, vaccinology, and pharmacology pumping into infants, toddlers, teens, adults, and senior citizens animal tissue that can cause cancer and/or contribute to autoimmune or inflammatory diseases, including dementia?

Dr. Greger posted the write up about the animal virus article on the web at Care2. After reading it, readers may understand the valid concerns about the many serious issues regarding vaccines and mandatory vaccinations, e.g., their animal growth media and toxic ingredients.

Vaccines are dangerous [neurotoxins, e.g., ethylmercury (Thimerosal) and aluminum]; not safe [not tested for carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, or ability to interfere with fertility; see vaccine package inserts for that information]; nor effective—especially the flu and pertussis vaccines [90% of those contracting pertussis recently have been fully vaccinated!]; and can cause other diseases such as Guillain-Barre syndrome [1] and ASIA (Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants). Adjuvants [2] are special vaccine ingredients added to produce an antigenic response, which is not natural immunity; it’s an adaptive immune response produced in response to the antigen, which usually is a form of aluminum. [3]

According to the CDC,

Vaccine antigens may also be produced by genetic engi­neering technology. These products are sometimes referred to as recombinant vaccines. Four genetically engineered vaccines are currently available in the United States. Hepatitis B [given to one day old babies] and human papillomavirus (HPV) [which causes serious adverse reactions in girls] [6] vaccines are produced by insertion of a segment of the respective viral gene into the gene of a yeast cell or virus. The modified yeast cell produces pure hepatitis B surface antigen or HPV capsid protein when it grows. Live typhoid vaccine (Ty21a) is Salmonella Typhi bacteria that have been genetically modified to not cause illness. Live attenuated influenza vaccine has been engineered to replicate effectively in the mucosa of the nasopharynx but not in the lungs. [4]

Hopefully, family physicians and Big Pharma will take Dr. Greger’s report, “Animal Proteins and Viruses Triggering Disease,” seriously.
