The World Council for Health on Oct. 9 will host an urgent meeting to address reports of DNA in mRNA vaccines, claims foreign DNA could instruct the human body to produce mRNA and foreign proteins, and the SV40 cancer-promoting genetic sequence found in COVID-19 vaccines.
“It has been alleged that these discoveries have been confirmed in a dozen laboratories worldwide,” the website states. “We will examine the scientific evidence supporting these claims and discuss the actions taken by medical regulators in response.”
The hearing, moderated by Dr. Mark Trozzi and Dr. Christof Plothe, will be held virtually at 6 PM UTC. Participating experts include Kevin McKernan, Dr. Janci Lindsay, Professor Sucharit Bhakdi, Associate Professor Byram Bridle, cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, Professor Brigitte König, and Dr. Jessica Rose.
DNA Contamination of mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines
University of South Carolina Professor Dr. Phillip Buckhaults, a cancer genomics expert with a doctoral degree in molecular biology and biochemistry, on Sept. 13 testified before the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Ad-Hoc Committee that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are contaminated with billions of tiny DNA fragments.
“There is a very real hazard” that these fragments of foreign DNA can insert themselves into a person’s own genome and become a “permanent fixture of the cell,” Buckhaults stated.
Buckhaults and his team are experts at detecting foreign pieces of DNA, even if they’re at very low levels. For example, they developed the COVID-19 “spit test” to determine if an individual has COVID-19.
Buckhaults has received three doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine and recommended it to family and friends, yet he has been reluctant to go public with his findings.
Lab Finds Potentially Dangerous DNA Fragments in COVID-19 Vaccines
Buckhaults and his team made the following findings after analyzing vials of Pfizer’s vaccine in their lab:
- Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine is contaminated with the plasmid DNA vector used as the template for the in vitro transcription reaction. It does not just contain mRNA, as we are told.
- DNA contamination could explain the cause of some of the rare but serious side effects, such as death from cardiac arrest.
- The DNA can and likely will integrate into the genomic DNA of transfected cells.
- Genome modification of long-lived transfected somatic cells (like stem cells) could cause a sustained autoimmune attack toward that tissue.
- There is a theoretical risk of cancer depending on the piece of DNA and where it integrates. It can interrupt a tumor suppressor or activate an oncogene.
“I sequenced all the DNA that was in the vaccine, and I can see what’s in there, and it’s surprising that there’s any DNA in there, and you can kind of work out what it is and how it got there, and I’m kind of alarmed about the possible consequences of this both in terms of human health and biology—but you should be alarmed by the regulatory process that allowed it to get there,” Buckhaults said.
Buckhaults further explained how DNA gets transcribed into RNA, and RNA gets translated into protein. “This is how life runs,” he said.
DNA is a long-lived information storage device. What you’re born with, you’re going to die with and will pass on to your kids, so alterations to DNA stick around, whereas RNA, by its nature, is temporary. It doesn’t last, and that feature of RNA was part of the sales pitch for the COVID-19 vaccines. Once proteins are made, they also don’t last forever, but things that make their way into DNA last for a very long time, potentially a lifetime, Buckhaults explained.
He added that because there are so many smaller DNA fragments in the COVID-19 vaccines, there are many opportunities to modify the cells of a vaccinated person.
Buckhaults and his team took the pieces of DNA and put them together to figure out what the source DNA was. In one sequence his team ran, there were more than 100,000 fragments of DNA. They discovered the plasmid used in Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to produce mRNA the company used to clone the spike protein into.
“The DNA in the vaccine is a contaminate leftover from the process used in large-scale production. This DNA was not present in the materials used in the trials because the process of making the stuff was different (it did not use this plasmid DNA).
Pfizer Used Two Different Manufacturing Processes
Buckhaults explained how two different manufacturing processes were used to make Pfizer’s vaccine—the one in their clinical trial and the current process used in mass production.
The initial production of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine used a method called Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to amplify the DNA template used for the production of the mRNA and to make a highly pure mRNA product. But to “upscale the process” for mass distribution to obtain Emergency Use Authorization, Pfizer switched to a different process to amplify the mRNA.
The second process used bacteria to make large quantities of “DNA plasmid”—circular DNA instructions—then used to make the mRNA. However, the final product contained both plasmid DNA and mRNA, resulting in vaccine contamination.
Buckhaults estimates there are about two billion copies of just one piece of the DNA fragment containing the origin of replication in each vaccine dose, which means there are about 200 billion pieces of the plasmid DNA in each vaccine dose. It’s encapsulated in the lipid nanoparticle, ready to be delivered inside the cell.
Buckhaults said vaccinated people need to be tested—both harmed people and regular unharmed people to see if the DNA is being integrated into cells because it leaves a fingerprint behind. He called on elected officials to tell the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to demand Pfizer get this plasmid DNA out of its COVID-19 vaccines.
Buckhaults is a “real fan of this platform” but says the financial incentives are too great, and regulatory agencies need to get Pfizer to remove this DNA. Buckhaults confirmed that Pfizer has to have known it had plasmid DNA in its vaccine because it took efforts to “chop it up” into fragments—they just didn’t get it all out.
Genomics expert Kevin McKernan also found plasmid DNA contamination in both Pfizer and Moderna’s bivalent COVID-19 vaccines in amounts that far exceeded the safety limit set by the FDA.
