Could Cows Be the Vaccine Factories of the Future?

As research continues on an ever-elusive HIV vaccine, scientists report that they believe cows’ natural immunity to HIV may be the answer they need. According to Stat News, when cows are injected with HIV their immune systems automatically develop antibodies blocking the disease. Researchers hope that by studying how cows do this, they may eventually be able to either create an effective HIV vaccine for humans, or at least give the HIV cow antibodies directly to humans.

Vaccines are one of the most controversial medical therapies. And while this new research may excite anyone who believes we need an HIV vaccine, I urge you to remain cautious about supporting another vaccine that, if it becomes available, undoubtedly will be mandated for all children, as have the majority of other new vaccines created in the past 20 years.

One of the biggest lies of the conventional vaccine paradigm is that all vaccines are safe and effective, and can be given to virtually anybody regardless of how sick they are. The other prime argument for justifying today's aggressive vaccination program is the alleged success of the polio vaccine. But, the historical perspective fails to support this assertion, as history shows that polio was “eradicated” not by the vaccine, but by redefining polio.

The industry and pro-vaccine zealots will argue against this vehemently. But in fact, what industry is really worried about is having to be accountable for injuries their vaccines cause. In the U.S., there is a federally operated vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) that Congress created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. It’s distressing that few people realize the VICP exists — but even more distressing is that this act protects vaccine companies from any liability if you’re injured by a vaccine in the U.S.

However, a European court recently set a precedence by ruling that "serious, specific and consistent" circumstantial evidence may be considered in vaccine injury cases there, prompting a barrage of criticism from the industry, which asserts this will "open the floodgates" for vaccine injury lawsuits. And well it should. Vaccine injury is real, and it’s therefore crucially important to consider multiple sources of vaccine information and use reason, intuition and common sense when making an educated decision about vaccination — and to be able to hold makers liable, should you be injured by their product.
