LET’S FACT-CHECK REUTERS: THEY SAY DNA VACCINES DON’T CHANGE YOUR GENETIC MAKEUP—TRUE OR FALSE?

SOURCE: JON RAPPOPORT
As my readers know, I’ve been reporting on new types of technology that could be used in a coming COVID-19 vaccine—and warning about the consequences.

One such technology is: DNA vaccines. They would alter recipients’ genetic makeup permanently.

But Reuters has seen fit to claim: “A future COVID-19 [DNA] vaccine will not genetically modify humans.” This comes from their “fact-check team” — May 18, 2020: “False claim: A COVID-19 vaccine will genetically modify humans.”

To reach this conclusion, Reuters cites two people: “Mark Lynas, a visiting fellow at Cornell University’s Alliance for Science group”, and “Dr. Paul McCray, Professor of Pediatrics, Microbiology, and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa.”

I have cited the New York Times, March 10, 2015, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” Here are quotes from the Times article:

“By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the animals to resist disease.”

“’The sky’s the limit,’ said Michael Farzan, an immunologist at Scripps and lead author of the new study.”

“The first human trial based on this strategy — called immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer, or I.G.T. — is underway, and several new ones are planned.” [That was five years ago.]

“I.G.T. is altogether different from traditional vaccination. It is instead a form of gene therapy. Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.”

[Here is the punch line] “The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.”

The Times article taps Dr. David Baltimore for an opinion:

“Still, Dr. Baltimore says that he envisions that some people might be leery of a vaccination strategy that means altering their own DNA, even if it prevents a potentially fatal disease.”

So it’s a battle of the experts. The two men Reuters cited, versus the Times’ David Baltimore.

I don’t hold up the scientific work of any of these men for great acclaim. I’m only interested in which man knows whether a DNA vaccine would permanently alter the genetic makeup of every recipient’s DNA.

David Baltimore is a Nobel Laureate (1975, in Physiology/Medicine), and the past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1997-2006). He’s one of the most famous scientists in the world.

I’m betting Reuters would happily trade their unknown experts for Baltimore, if he would side with their claim. Perhaps they’ll now approach him, and perhaps he’ll change his mind. But the NY Times has him on the record, in 2015, admitting that DNA vaccines do alter genetic makeup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no anti-vaxxer.

When Mike came down with mycoplasma pneumonia a number of years ago, and I asked my sister-in-law, a nurse/practitioner, what I could do to make sure he stayed healthy once he got home, she suggested that I get a pneumovax vaccination, which I did immediately.

But any vaccination which could alter my DNA?!? Forgive me, but I am going to want to see how that plays out over time, before I make the decision to get one of those.

And here is a strong caution regarding vaccines that "big pharma" have assured us are "safe"; UK GOVERNMENT TO COMPENSATE BRAIN-DAMAGED VICTIMS OF SWINE FLU VACCINE

The article goes on to state: "The British Government will shell out big money to patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking the swine flu vaccine.

The government is expected to pay about $100 million dollars to 60 victims with each of them receiving about $1.7 million each. The settlement is over the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Nearly 60 million people received the vaccine following the 2009 swine flu outbreak, most of them children. It was later discovered that the vaccine can cause narcolepsy and cataplexy, and some 800 children across Europe are so far known to have gotten ill from the vaccine."

And please do remember the following: No Pharma Liability? No Vaccine Mandates.

This article goes on to state: "On February 22, 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court shielded drug companies from all liability for harm caused by vaccines mandated by government when companies could have made a safer vaccine. 1

From now on, drug companies selling vaccines in America will not be held accountable by a jury of our peers in a court of law if those vaccines brain damage us but could have been made less toxic.

If you get paralyzed by a flu shot or your child has a serious reaction to a vaccine required for school and becomes learning disabled, epileptic, autistic, asthmatic, diabetic or mentally retarded, you are on your own."
