(NaturalNews) The medical establishment's love affair with vaccines has spawned some wacky approaches to health care in recent years, including the ongoing development of a vaccine that supposedly prevents heart disease. According to Canada.com, researchers at Lund University in Sweden are currently working on a vaccine they say will prevent heart attacks -- and this fantasy vaccine could come to market in as little as five years.
According to Professor Jan Nilsson and her colleagues, the vaccine will be available as both an injection and a nasal spray, and will allegedly stop fat from building up in the arteries. The way it will do this is by supposedly stimulating the body's immune system to produce antibodies that prevent arterial buildup from occurring, a process that Canada.com absurdly refers to as tackling the "underlying cause of heart disease."
Far from addressing the underlying causes of heart disease, though, this ridiculous vaccine approach will merely treat the symptoms of a much bigger problem, if it even ends up doing that much. According to Dr. Dwight Lundell, a veteran heart surgeon, and others, low-fat diets, processed foods, diet soft drinks, and other dietary and environmental factors produce chronic inflammation in the body, which causes plaque and cholesterol to build up in the circulatory system (http://www.naturalnews.com).
Rather than address any of this, the heart disease vaccine, if it even works, will simply target the fatty buildup rather than the underlying causes of this buildup. And like all other synthetic interventions, this vaccine approach will more than likely come with devastating and potentially permanent negative side effects, including neurological damage, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
Interestingly, the concept of developing a vaccination against heart disease completely defies the logic behind the entire vaccine theory in the first place. Vaccines are supposed to confer immunity against disease by injecting a small portion of that disease into the body, but the new heart disease vaccine will somehow target the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries by triggering the production of antibodies that "tackle this build-up," according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail.
The concept makes no sense, of course, but it is nevertheless being taken seriously by the medical community, which appears poised to embrace this blatant medical quackery with open arms once it gains approval and hits the market. And a heart disease vaccine is not the only such vaccine in the works, as a study published last year in the Journal of Internal Medicine reveals that Lund University scientists are also busy working on a vaccine for diabetes as well (http://www.lunduniversity.lu.se/o.o.i.s?id=12683&postid=1937293).
