University of South Carolina Professor Dr. Phillip Buckhaults testifies before South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Ad-Hoc Committee on DHEC.
Please have a listen. Although I do not not necessarily agree that these shots saved anyone from hospitalization or death, we are not only allowed to disagree, but it makes up a better thinking group. Phillip makes excellent points having sequenced some of the COVID-19 modified mRNA vials and he describes how the DNA contamination could integrate into the genome to mess up other genes, induce cancers and last a long time.
He mentions these problems in the context of the Pfizer products primarily, but these problems are not limited to Pfizer. He mentions Moderna at the end when Rep. Adam Morgan poses a question about how many people got injected with potentially contaminated COVID-19 products.
Phillip compares all of these little pieces of DNA increase the likelihood of integration based on the sheer number of these little DNAs, irrespective of the size (length) of the DNAs. I actually had thought that size was a factor but he says here that it is not. He makes the analogy to buckshot.
Phillip recommends the collection of stem cells from a variety of people who’ve been injected with the modified mRNA products, and for multiple lab to sequence the DNA of these stem cells to determine the theoretical risk that integration is occurring.
He also goes over the reason this DNA got left behind from the in vitro transcription process to contaminate the commercial products. He also discusses the bait and switch from Process 1 (clinical - trials) to Process 2 (commercial - people) modified mRNA production. For Process 1, they made the modified mRNA using PCR. For Process 2 required for up-scaling the product, they made the modified mRNA using the plasmid/E. coli system. The latter introduce/welcome the problems of DNA and LPS contamination. Josh Guetzkow will be discussing this in detail on Dr. Drew soon.
Phillip is a self-proclaimed fan of the modified-mRNA-LNP platform and talks about using it to ameliorate (cure) cancer in the future, but not before the manufacturers resolve the issue of DNA contamination.
I do not agree. But again, this is still allowed. I believe that this platform is dangerous for reasons that supersede DNA contamination. I also don’t buy that they didn’t know about potential problems associated with left-over contaminant DNA. There are standard assays and protocols for check for purity of product at the end of the modified mRNA manufacturing process.
I also have brand new questions about the DNA vaccines which, as of today, I am looking into. Everyone should read this paper:
KURTH, R. (1995). Risk Potential of the Chromosomal Insertion of Foreign DNA. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 772(1 DNA Vaccines), 140–151. doi:10.1111/j.1749-6632.1995.tb44739.x
I think it’s going to be very interesting to see if his recommendations are followed - if people’s stem cells are checked - or if as he says, they sweep it under the rug. Having said that, it is also possible that the findings will not be in the favor of the program and that these will be hidden, much like the Pfizer clinical trial data was attempted to be hidden for our lifetimes.
Either way, I think it is very important to watch this story closely. I am going to continue my investigations into the potential problems associated with the DNA vaccines as well. As is pointed out in the paper above:
In summary, the worrisome aspects of foreign DNA integrating into cellular DNA are those concerning the potential risk of tumor induction.1
Yes indeed. And even though these DNA vaccines technically do not carry the coding material necessary for integration to occur (ie: viral integrase proteins)2 3 , I still think we need to check people’s stem cells as suggested by Phillip for recipients of the modified mRNA products (Pfizer and Moderna), and the DNA vaccines as well (Janssen and Astrazeneca).
Listen all the way to the end: the questions posed by the hearing participants are very good.
