(NaturalNews) Recent studies demonstrating higher immunity and protection against asthma may threaten the lucrative vaccination duties of pediatrics and the vaccine production of Big Pharma.

Two studies concluded that infants in homes with furry dogs or cats had better protection from viral infections that normally lead to bronchial problems, including asthma, which has been increasing on the young over the past few decades of increased childhood vaccination schedules.

The studies concluded that non-vaccinated children's immune systems were stronger among those whose homes were occupied by at least one furry animal than those who were vaccinated in homes without animals.

These studies expand the notion that immunity is developed naturally by being exposed to some microbes in the environment rather than bypassing the immune system with toxic vaccinations that overburden the immune system.

This notion has already been demonstrated statistically with increased autoimmune diseases, infectious disease from the vaccinations themselves, and deaths since the dramatically increased vaccination schedule for young children. (

These recent studies may be kept from public awareness to give Big Pharma a chance to propagandize owning pets as unhealthy until children are fully grown.

The California study

Apparently, this study was funded in part to gather information for more vaccines. So adding more vaccinations and banning pets is not merely an expression of cynicism.

This study was conducted by a group of California biologists after they discovered the microbiome in homes with pets was different than the that of homes without pets. According to the National Library of Medicine, microbiomes are: "The full collection of microbes (bacteria, fungi, virus, etc.) that naturally exist within an organism as identified by their genomes..."

This definition includes probiotic gut bacteria, which accounts for well over half of our immune systems, 60 to 80 percent according to most expert estimates.

The California team used microbes and mice to get an idea of the dynamics involved. Three different groups of mice were used. One group of mice was exposed with dust from homes with pets then to the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) that is associated with increasing a risk of childhood asthma.

Another group of mice was exposed to only the RSV without dust from households with pets, and the third group was exposed to neither the dust nor RSV.

A research team member, Kei Fujimura, reported: "Mice fed dust did not exhibit symptoms associated with RSV-mediated infection, ...They also possessed a distinct gastrointestinal bacterial composition compared to animals not fed dust."

Hint - hint, maybe their intestinal flora was distinctively improved to enhance overall immunity? So if you're expecting a child, it would be wise to have a friendly pup around as part of the family and hold the vaccinations. At least before these guys get around to using this data to make yet another vaccine.

The Finnish epidemiological survey

A Finnish epidemiological survey supports the California research findings, which had not undergone peer review as of early July 2012. However, the Finnish study was reported in an 2012 Spring issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The study involved 397 children born in Finland from birth through one year of age between 2002 and 2005. Here's the verbatim conclusion of that study:

"These results suggest that dog contacts may have a protective effect on respiratory tract infections during the first year of life. Our findings support the theory that during the first year of life, animal contacts are important, possibly leading to better resistance to infectious respiratory illnesses during childhood."

Maybe child bearing families should take a hint and act on these findings while ignoring vaccination orders.
