They say to follow the science, so let’s do just that!
Is the spike protien harmful / toxic?
I read Dr. Bryam Bridle, an Associate Professor of Viral Imunology at the University of Guelf, as having stated;
“We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin. COVID spike protein gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulates in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in quite high concentrations in the ovaries.”WSAU News
“We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein, Bridle said. “It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation.” Article here.
Per lacking evidence in their investigation, Politifact declared this to be “False Information”. However, in another interview, Dr. Bridle continued:
“However, when studying the severe COVID-19, […] heart problems, lots of problems with the cardiovascular system, bleeding and clotting, are all associated with COVID-19,” he added. “In doing that research, what has been discovered by the scientific community, the spike protein on its own is almost entirely responsible for the damage to the cardiovascular system, if it gets into circulation.”omny.fm
“When the purified spike protein is injected into the blood of research animals, they experience damage to the cardiovascular system and the protein can cross the blood-brain barrier and cause damage to the brain, Bridle explained.”
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an attorney who founded and chairs Children’s Health Defense has been an advocate and crusader for years for those who have been injured or killed as a result of vaccines, twitted on this topic, providing a link to a post made by the Children’s Health Defense organization which seems to have been able to provide information supporting Dr. Bridle’s statement. I’ll break out the claims below.
I have listed some studies below that suggest that the spike protein produced in response to vaccination may bind and interact with various cells throughout the body, potentially resulting in damage to various tissues and organs. This risk, no matter how theoretical, should be investigated prior to the vaccination of children and adolescents.
- In a recent study it was found that spike proteins can damage the endothelial cells that make up the inner lining of blood vessels, including arteries, veins and capillaries. It was shown that the S protein alone can damage vascular endothelial cells (ECs) by downregulating ACE2 and consequently inhibiting mitochondrial function.
- SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein and Lung Vascular Cells – SARS-CoV-2 spike protein promotes cell growth signaling in human lung vascular cells, and patients who have died of COVID-19 have thickened pulmonary vascular walls, linking the spike protein to a fatal disease, pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
- Spike Protein Elicits Cell Signaling in Human Cells – proposed that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein (without the rest of the viral components) triggers cell signaling events that may promote pulmonary vascular remodeling and PAH as well as possibly other cardiovascular complications.
- Spike Protein can bypass the Blood-Brain Barrier – evidence provided suggests that the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins trigger a pro-inflammatory response on brain endothelial cells that may contribute to an altered state of BBB function. Another paper here. Another here. It is suspected that this is what is causing some of the longer-term neurological disorders (video here).
- Critically ill patients diagnosed with COVID-19 may develop a pro-thrombotic state that places them at a dramatically increased lethal risk. Although platelet activation is critical for thrombosis and is responsible for the thrombotic events and cardiovascular complications, the role of platelets in the pathogenesis of COVID-19 remains unclear. Article here.
A senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stephanie Seneff, stated it is now clear vaccine content is being delivered to the spleen, the glands (including the ovaries and the adrenal glands), and eventually reaches the bloodstream causing systemic damage. She states that the same receptors on the blood platelets are also common in the heart and the brain, leading to cardiovascular and cognitive problems.
Dr. Birdle has stated that the scientific community has discovered the spike protein, on its own, is almost entirely responsible for the damage to the cardiovascular system, if it gets into circulation. Once in the body’s circulation, the spike protein can attach to receptors that are on blood platelets and the cells that line blood vessels, and can do one of two things: cause the platelets to clump (clotting), or lead to bleeding.
He also stated this is why there have been reports of people having clotting disorders after being vaccinated, like the recently reported heart problems in vaccinated teens. Both clotting and bleeding are associated with vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT). As reported by Bloomberg, in a statement Pfizer said there is still no indication the cases are due to its vaccine. The drugmaker said that Myocarditis is often caused by viral infections, and COVID infections have been reported to cause the condition. BioNTech, Pfizer’s partner, said that more than 300 million doses of the COVID vaccine have been administered globally and the “benefit-risk profile” of the vaccine remains positive. The company also said “A careful assessment of the reports is ongoing and it has not been concluded. … Adverse events, including myocarditis and pericarditis, are being regularly and thoroughly reviewed by the companies as well as by regulatory authorities.”.
Dr. J. Patrick Whelan, a pediatric rheumatologist, concerned the mRNA vaccine technology utilized by Pfizer and Moderna had “the potential to cause microvascular injury (inflammation and small blood clots called microthrombi) to the brain, heart, liver and kidneys in ways that were not assessed in the safety trials.”, warned the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Article here.
Does the mRNA vaccine just stay in the shoulder muscle?
Dr. Bryam Bridle, an Associate Professor of Viral Imunology at the University of Guelf, was awarded a $230,000 grant by the Canadian government in 2020 for COVID vaccine development research. He and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to Pfizer’s biodistribution study (the study shows where an injected compound travels throughout the body and which tissues or organs it accumulates in). Dr. Birdle stated in an interview that this was the first time scientists have been able to see where these mRNA vaccines go. The study shows that the spike protein gets into the blood and circulates for several days, accumulating in organs and tissues including the spleen, liver, adrenal glands, bone marrow, and in “quite high concentrations” in the ovaries.
In the study Clinical and Infectious Diseases, led by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard Medical School, they measured longitudinal plasma samples collected from thirteen recipients of the Moderna vaccine, 1 and 29 days after the first dose, and 1 through 28 days after the second dose. Out of these individuals, 11 had detectable levels of SARS-CoV-2 protein in blood plasma as early as one day after the first vaccine dose, including three who had detectable levels of the spike protein. Spike proteins were detected an average of 15 days after the first injection. This means that the spike protien lasts longer than two days in the body.
In a study published in Nature Neuroscience, lab animals injected with purified spike protein into their bloodstream developed cardiovascular problems, with the spike protein having crossed the blood-brain barrier and causing brain damage.
Ogata et al., 2021 also reported the detection of spike protein in the plasma of 3 of 13 young healthcare workers following vaccination with Moderna’s mRNA-1273 vaccine. It was found that the spike protein circulated for 29 days in one employee.
A “subunit” protein (part of the spike protein) called S1 was also detected. The results showed that, after the initial injection, S1 antigen production could be detected by the first day and was present beyond the injection site and the associated regional lymph nodes. Assuming an average adult blood volume of approximately 5 liters, this means approximately 0.3 micrograms of free antigen in circulation – from a vaccine designed only to express membrane-anchored antigen.
Question: Wouldn’t you agree that this warrants further investigation for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines?
Did Health Canada authorize the COVID-19 vaccines without biodistribution and
pharmacokinetic studies on the virus spike protein?
Given the above concerns about the spike protein and the S1 subunit, it is important that we fully understand:
- which cells are actually involved in the production of the spike protein, seeing that Pfizer’s own study submitted to the Japanese authorities shows the deposition of vaccine nanoparticles in various tissues and organs
- whether the spike protein is gaining access to the circulatory system and, if so, for how long
- whether the spike protein crosses the blood-brain barrier
- whether the spike protein interferes with semen production or ovulation
- whether the spike protein crosses the placenta and impacts a developing baby
- whether the spike protein is excreted in the milk of lactating mothers
I read that the toxicity studies conducted with the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine do not allow for a safety assessment of the spike protein. And although Pfizer BioNTech conducted toxicity studies, including a reproductive toxicity study, they used rats as their animal model. The problem with this is that while rats have ACE2 receptors, their receptors have a very low binding affinity for the spike protein. In fact, of the 14 mammalian species evalulated, ACE2 receptors of rats and mice had the lowest spike protein binding affinities, while ACE2 receptors in humans and rhesus monkeys had the highest. As I understand it, this means that while the current toxicity studies have provided useful information on the vaccine components, they provide little value in understanding the safety of the spike protein they code for.
Shelter in Place – Lockdowns
Do Lockdowns and shelter-in-place work? Is there a bigger picture that is not being realized / recognized through those concepts? For instance, how does the human immune system work when you remove yourself from society – and use harsh cleaners in your home? As the US CDC and governments pushed their solution forward, I feel no need to review it – we were all subject to various lockdowns and know the ramifications of them well. But here are two doctors that use basic knowledge of the human body and logic to question the decisions behind lockdowns.
I also make reference to a video presentation made by former Pfizer Vice President Dr Mike Yeadon, where he discusses his thoughts as to why the lockdown was a mistake, and why the government strategies to manage the pandemic are only making things worse.
Further, a tweet by Roman Barber, asking Ontario, Canada’s Primier Doug Ford to stop the lockdown as he suggests that the pandemic has created a mental health pandemic. Here is a supporting news article. I heard conflicting arguements regarding the suicide rate increasing during the pandemic, and found it difficult to secure real numbers – some said that the suicide rate actually reduced because there was so much advertising for the mental health line.
While I agree with the concepts as presented by these individuals, I leave it to you to derive your own conclusion.
Do masks work? Good question! Sure masks work – nobody would wear them if they didn’t! But are they effective? And how effective are they? And will they block the COVID-19 virus from going through? Better questions.
In basic, think of it as that a mask blocks “stuff” on both sides of it. Masks are filters – which are made of materials that are essentially full of holes – the smaller the hole, the smaller the particle has to be to pass through it. So, if you are wearing a mask to block a virus from going through, then you’ll need to wear a mask that has small enough holes to block it. And no, wearing multiple masks does not reduce the size of the holes – small particles will still go through multiple layers. You must also consder that when wearing a mask (or masks) the smaller the holes, the harder it is to push and pull air through them.
How small are viruses? WAY WAY WAY smaller than most people realize. Here is a video, where they try to show you visually how small they are. But usually viruses do not travel alone! They like to travel with other materials, like water droplets, etc..
Most people believe that “Surgical Masks” set a standard – but I would disagree. In my research, I’ve learned that surgical masks were not designed to stop all of the viruses and particles moved during breathing – contrary to what you’d think. Decades ago, in testing and establishing standards, surgeons tested body suits having forced air during operations, but these failed testing due to restricted mobility and visibility. Forced air face masks were tested, which also failed per the same – however mobility did increase. They then tested thicker masks having the ability to stop a large number of particulates, but had to stop using them as surgeons could not use them for extended periods of time as they could not draw enough air and were becoming fatigued too quickly – however mobility was maximized. So they tested various materials and lightened the masks to the point that while still acting like a decent barrier, the surgeon could wear the mask for lenghty operations. So to help offset masks not working 100%, other methods were improved: sanitize the room, equipment, and clothing; wash themselves extremely well prior; never operate having any symptoms or being ill; and have special air systems and filters in the operating room to help block and sterilize the air. Of course while this is the standard we enjoy today in hospital operating rooms you’ll notice that we do not live in that type of environment – thus the sugical mask ‘standard’ does not apply.
When people talk about masks, the general thought seems to be that if the holes in the mask are small enough to capture the water droplets, that the water droplet will evaporate in/on the mask, and the virus will stop travelling through the air. But this would require that the masks are perfectly fit, are perfect in manufacture (the holes are perfectly sized and material consistiency is perfect), that the air movement is at the rate and pressure that the mask was designed to handle (or less), and that with each breath the water will totally evaporate. Obviously therefore, masks must offer only a limited amount of protection.
Here are some additional problems to consider:
- If the holes in the mask only need to be small enough to capture the size of the objects that these viruses travel on then what happens if the particles are so small they can be suspended in the air without a water droplet….the holes in the mask would need to be so small that air itself would not be able to pass through.
- And if upon breathing in, contact with the mask material causes the water droplet to be partially or fully absorbed – would this not potentially expose the virus – meaning it could be inhaled at that time?
- Further, masks are usually electrostatically charged, meaning that they attract the materials that the viruses travel on – so what happens when you wear a mask that you wash – would it retain the appropriate charge?? Fabric softener would completely ruin this mask attribute.
- And while it has been recommended for individuals to stay 6 ft apart from one another we must note that this is not at all a precise protective distance – it is subject to change per the humidity, wind direction (air flow), size and shape of room, and etc..
Therefore, some masks will offer some protection and other’s won’t offer any – nothing is perfect. I’ll humbly suggest if you need to wear a mask then use a N95 or KN95 masks as in my research they seem to offer good protection. It is my understanding that the KN masks are the same as the N masks, but lack the requirements for use in hospitals – thus they are cheaper and good for public use – and I recall hearing that when hospitals were running out of KN masks, they allowed KN masks in their place. I wouldn’t recommend using a cloth mask, as that material has holes that are far too large, and the material would have lost its electrostatic charge during washing. Of course, larger holes means easier breathing…perhaps why they were the choice for some.
In conclusion, will masks protect us? The short answer is that it is a gamble. I think masks were pushed because we had no way of knowing if someone was infected or was a carrier, and the thought was it was better than nothing. Did Fauci flip-flop on the protection offered by masks? Yes. Did it look good? No. Did I wear one? Yes, when I had to, and only for a limited time as I also understand they can cause respiratory issues when worn for extended periods.
