What do these three things have to do with each other?

Here are some interesting facts to ponder on what collagen, joint disease and vaccines have to do with each other:

Collagen, as you may know is the elastic protein that holds skin together. As we and our pets age, the amount and quality of collagen in our bodies starts to diminish.

Collagen is found in abundance in the joints and connective tissue of the body. In fact, collagen makes up 70 to 90% of our muscles, tendons, ligaments and other joint supporting tissues and approximately 30% of the protein in the body. As happens in the skin, when collagen breaks down in the body, the joints become less stable, the muscles and connective tissue loosen and become more brittle, and disorders such as arthritis, degenerative disc disease, tendonitis and overuse injuries begin to occur. Failure of collagen to form properly can have catastrophic results, including skeletal abnormalities, polycystic organ syndromes (e.g. liver, kidneys), and severe vascular syndromes.
