Vaccines Produce Cancer in Animals, But Not In Humans?

Over the years I have seen animals with cancers that have occurred at vaccination sites. Vets know that certain vaccines are more likely to produce a cancer, and in which animals.

Medical doctors rarely admit that any health problem can be caused by a vaccine. Maurice Hilleman was more honest than most, in the end. He created more vaccines than any other doctor – and he labelled vaccination as “the bargain basement technology of the century.”

Vets Will Tell You…

The Pet MD site tells us that injectable vaccines are rarely associated with sarcoma development in pets, but dogs and cats have been noticed to develop these cancerous masses that grow in bone, cartilage, fat or muscle after rabies shots. Cats are noticed to develop sarcomas after rabies or FeLV shots. 

These tumors are characterized as highly invasive, rapidly growing, and malignant. Metastatic (spreading) rates are reported to be 22.5 to 24 percent. Often, the cancer spreads to the lungs, but it may spread to the regional lymph nodes and to the skin as well.

The More Shots, the More Risk

In one study, cats given two vaccinations at the same site were 127 percent more likely to develop tumors than those not receiving vaccinations. Those who had three or four vaccines at the same site were more than one and a half more likely (175 percent higher) to develop cancer. 


About Animal Vaccination

Forty years ago, vets believed that vaccines could be given over and over without harm to the animal. Since then we have learned that vaccines last a lot longer, and most likely for the life of the animal. More recently, the dangers of vaccination have been brought to light. Some vets are paying attention while others prefer to protect their income by giving annual shots. 

In 2005, the global vaccine market was $6 billion. In 2012, it is $34 billion. 60% of vets are vaccinating three times more often than the veterinary colleges recommend … and countless others are vaccinating more often than recommended.

Ingredients Most Likely to Cause Harm


is the most common adjuvant in veterinary vaccines. Aluminum is known to cause degeneration of the brain and nervous system and neurological dysfunction such as seizures. In the mature, and especially the aging brain, these mechanisms can lead to progressive neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer’s disease and ALS.

Alzheimers disease is caused by plaque formation in the brain and chemical analysis shows an aluminum core at the root of each plaque. Research at UC Davis in California suggests as many as 39% of aging dogs have at least one sign of dementia. The affected dogs were found to have the same plaques seen in Alzheimer’s patients. 


is a mercury based vaccine additive used as a preservative – and its extreme neurotoxicity has been known for decades.

Thimerosal would be completely unnecessary if vaccines were manufactured in single dose vials. Manufacturers are willing to trade safety for more money

In 1935, Eli Lilly (the creator of Thimerosal) declared it to be completely safe. The veterinary vaccine manufacturer Pittman-Moore stated that they found marked bad reaction in 50% of dogs, and that is was unsatisfactory as a preservative for serum intended for use on dogs.

Since then, studies have been repeated to show the dangers of Thimerosal.

  • In 1967, a study in Applied Microbiology found Thimerosal killed mice when added to vaccines.
  • In 1972, Eli Lilly found Thimerosal to be “toxic to tissue cells” in concentrations as low as 1 ppm. Vaccines typically contain 100 times this amount.
  • In 1977, ten babies at a Toronto hospital died when an antiseptic preserved with Thimerosal was dabbed on their umbilical cords.
  • In 1982, the FDA proposed a ban on over-the-counter products containing Thimerosal.
  • In 1991 the FDA considered banning Thimerosal from animal vaccines. 
  • In 2006, researchers at UC Davis found that in addition to being a direct neurotoxicant, Thimerosal may also be an immunotoxicant, leaving the immune system vulnerable to microbes and other external influences.


All vaccines contain unknown contaminants and retroviruses because of the way that they are created. Only a few checks are done, missing a vast host of unknown, unstudied, small particles and chemicals. It’s simply impossible to remove contaminants from vaccines.

Animal Protein

When a vaccine is manufactured, it is impossible to divide the wanted virus from the unwanted animal tissue, so it all gets ground up together and injected into your dog’s body. The foreign protein matter circulates throughout the body and gets absorbed into body cells. T-Cells, sensing they are there, but unable to reach them directly, attack the body cells that harbor them. This can lead to autoimmune disorders including cancer, allergies, arthritis and more.

“Our ongoing studies of dogs show that following routine vaccination, there is a significant level of antibodies dogs produce against their own tissues…Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, the connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA etc.” Larry Glickman DVM, referring to the results of the Purdue Vaccine Studies.
