COVID19 – the spike protein and blood clotting

3rd June 2021

When COVID19 came along I was in the midst of writing my latest book on heart disease. What causes it – and what does not.

One section I was working on covers the wide range of conditions known as the vasculitis(es). I could immediately see a whole series of connections between COVID19, spike proteins, the immune system and blood clots. Some of which are deeply concerning, for reasons that should become apparent.

Before getting started, you can see an immediate problem here is there does not seem to be a plural form of vasculitis. A bit like octopus. You can have one octopus, but what happens then… two octupuses… or is it two octopi? Wars have been fought over less.

Anyway, a vasculitis is a condition whereby a factor, of some sort, causes damage to the vascular system. The vascular system being, essentially, the blood vessels and the heart. The suffix itis simplymeans inflammation. As in appendicitis, or tonsillitis. Or, in this case vasculitis.

There are many different vasculitis(es) or vasculiti? They range from Kawasaki’s disease to antiphospholipid syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Sjogren’s disease and suchlike. They are many, and varied, and quite fascinating. At least they are, to me.

In all of them you have two things in common… that are most relevant to this discussion. First, with any form of vasculitis, the body decides to attack the lining of the blood vessels – causing inflammation and damage. Second, the rate of death from cardiovascular disease goes up dramatically. In some cases, a fifty-fold increase. This was seen in young women with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) with additional antiphospholipid syndrome1.

Why does the body decide to attack itself? This is a good question that I cannot really answer. If I could, I would be claiming my Nobel prize, right now. However, I can say that, for various reasons, the immune system makes the decision that it doesn’t like something about the lining of the blood vessels and believes it to have become ‘alien’ in some way. It then proceeds to attack. Which does not answer the question as to exactly why the attack happens? But it does tell you a bit about what happens.

Another major problem with vasculitis is that blood clots spring to life throughout the vascular system. This is because the blood is always ready to clot, at any time, and if you take away some of vital the anti-clotting mechanisms, the balance will be tilted firmly towards coagulation.

One of the most powerful anti-clotting mechanisms/systems is the protective layer that lines your entire vascular system, known as the glycocalyx. This is made up of glycoproteins (glucose and proteins stuck together). Under an electron microscope the glycocalyx looks like a tiny forest, or a badly mown lawn.

Many fish are covered with glycocalyx, which makes them very slippery, and difficult to get hold of. The glycocalyx also stops bacteria and viruses from gaining entry, in both fish and humans.

In your blood vessels, the glycocalyx protrudes out from endothelial cells, the cells that line all your blood vessels, and into the bloodstream. The layer of glycocalyx contains many, many, anticoagulant factors. Below is a short list of all the things the glycocalyx does:

The glycocalyx:

  • Forms the interface between the vessel wall and moving blood.
  • Acts as the exclusion zone between blood cells and the endothelium.
  • Acts as a barrier against leakage of fluid, proteins and lipids across the vascular wall.
  • Interacts dynamically with blood constituents.
  • Acts as the “molecular sieve” for plasma proteins.
  • Modulates adhesion of inflammatory cells and platelets to the endothelial surface.
  • Functions as a sensor and mechano-transducer of the fluid shear forces to which the endothelium is exposed; thus, the glycocalyx mediates shear-stress-dependent nitric oxide production.
  • Retains protective enzymes (e.g., superoxide dismutase).
  • Retains anticoagulation factors, e.g.: Tissue factor inhibitor, Protein C, Nitric Oxide (NO), Antithrombin.

Complicated stuff – that hardly anyone has ever heard of.

Anyway, if you damage the glycocalyx, or damage the underlying endothelial cells that synthesizes the glycocalyx layer, you will tip the balance very strongly towards the creation of blood clots. These can then then stick to the artery, or vein, wall. Sometimes they will fully block a blood vessel, leading to such things as a stroke or heart attack.

The interaction between vasculitis and thrombosis has been a relatively unexplored area of medicine. But it remains critically important in many diseases:

‘The relationship between inflammation and thrombosis is not a recent concept, but it has been largely investigated only in recent years. Nowadays inflammation-induced thrombosis is considered to be a feature of systemic autoimmune diseases such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), or Sjogren’s Syndrome (SS)2.

In super-short version. If you damage the lining of blood vessel walls, blood clots are far more likely to form. Very often, the damage is caused by the immune system going on the attack, damaging blood vessel walls, and removing several of the anti-clotting mechanisms.

Sepsis

Moving sideways for a moment. There are other things that can damage the blood vessel wall, leading to widespread blood clot formation. One of them is the condition known as sepsis. Which used to be called blood poisoning.

In sepsis, bacteria gain entry to the bloodstream through such things as a cut, an insect bite, a severe urine infection, and suchlike. When bacteria get into the blood, and start multiplying, they release exotoxins. Which are, effectively, the waste products of the bacteria.

These exotoxins then attack blood vessel walls, damaging the glycocalyx and endothelial cells. This drives the formation of blood clots throughout the body. The medical term for this is disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) = widespread blood clots in the vascular system.

The attacks not only cause clots, they can also cause the smaller blood vessels to weaken and burst. Which is why one sign of an infection with the meningococcal bacteria (the one that causes meningitis), is a rash. The rash is made up of dark, almost black, bruises. Once these start to appear, things are very bad. Potentially fatal, it means blood vessels are under severe attack and are breaking apart. Creating both bleeding and clots.

In truth, the ‘rash’ in meningitis is not really a rash at all. It is a sign of underlying, severe, vasculitis. The individual small bruises can also be called petechiae. Just to be scientific.

Another sign of widespread blood vessel damage, with the formation of multiple blood clots, is that the level of platelets in the bloodstream falls dramatically. For those who have never heard of such things, platelets are small cells that float about in the bloodstream. Their primary role is to co-ordinate the blood clotting system. If a red blood cell was the size of the Earth, a platelet would be about this size of the Moon.

If there is damage to blood vessels, platelets fling themselves at the area, and stick together to form a solid plug. They also release chemicals and enzymes that cause fibrin to be formed. Fibrin is the long sticky strand of protein that binds clots tightly together. Platelets also drag in red blood cells, and suchlike to make bigger and tougher clots. They have been called the conductors of the clotting orchestra.

In the process of doing all of these things, the number of platelets starts to fall. This is not surprising, as they are being used up to make blood clots/thrombi. Which means that one sign of widespread clot formation is a fall in the level of platelets (thrombocytopenia). This reliable sign of widespread coagulation, or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

Time for a quick re-cap.

What do we know?

What we now know, on the journey towards COVID19, are three important things.

  • If you damage the endothelial cells/glycocalyx, blood clots will form and stick to the side of blood vessels.
  • Damage is often caused by immune system attack.
  • Falling platelet levels are a sign of widespread blood clotting.

COVID19

What do we know about COVID19? First, it can only enter cells that have a receptor known as the angiotensin II receptor (ACE2 receptor). Cells with these receptors are mainly found in the lining of the lungs, and endothelial cells that line all blood vessels. Also, the epithelial /endothelial cells than line the intestines. If a cell does not have an ACE2 receptor, COVID19 simply cannot gain entry.

This was known years ago, when SARS-CoV was identified, the precursor of SARS-Cov2. Here from a paper in 2004:

‘The most remarkable finding was the surface expression of ACE2 protein on lung alveolar epithelial cells and enterocytes of the small intestine. Furthermore, ACE2 was present in arterial and venous endothelial cells and arterial smooth muscle cells in all organs studied. In conclusion, ACE2 is abundantly present in humans in the epithelia of the lung and small intestine, which might provide possible routes of entry for the SARS-CoV. This epithelial expression, together with the presence of ACE2 in vascular endothelium, also provides a first step in understanding the pathogenesis of the main SARS disease manifestations3.’

So, SARS-CoV gets into the body through the lungs and bowels. These are the places where the virus can gain access because it is where ACE2 receptors can mainly be found. Of course, SARS-Cov2 gets into the body in exactly the same way.

What happens once SARS-Cov2 gets into cells? Well, it does what all viruses do. It takes over various cellular mechanisms and forces the cell to produce more SARS-CoV2 viruses. This then kills, or severely damages those cells. This mainly occurs when ‘virions’ start to escape from within the cell. This damages the cell membrane, and in some cases can cause the cell to burst apart.

Essentially, SARS-Cov2 starts by damaging endothelial cells in the lungs, because it usually arrives here first. Fluid is released, and there is the breakdown of small blood vessels in the lungs, and the small airways. In this situation, the lungs begin to fail, and oxygen levels in the blood can fall dramatically.

Infection can also cause diarrhoea, as the epithelial cells in the intestines are damaged. To quote from ‘the COVID19 symptoms’ study:

‘We think COVID-19 causes diarrhoea because the virus can invade cells in the gut and disrupt its normal function 4.’

As far as I know, no-one has died of COVID19 diarrhoea. However, COVID19 can create such severe lung damage that people have died from respiratory failure or lung damage… call this form of disruption what you will. However, many/most people survive this phase.

It is what happens next that that kills the majority of people who become severely infected.

What happens next is that SARS-Cov2 gets into the bloodstream. It then invades endothelial cells, also pericytes and myocytes in the heart.  Both of which have a high level of ACE2 receptors. Both of which are kind of vital for heart function 5,6.

Then…

What we now have is a major widespread vasculitis on our hands, with severe endothelial cell damage and disruption and damage to the glycocalyx. Blood clots, blood clots, blood clots, everywhere.

‘Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) causes a spectrum of disease; some patients develop a severe proinflammatory state which can be associated with a unique coagulopathy and procoagulant endothelial phenotype. Initially, COVID-19 infection produces a prominent elevation of fibrinogen and D-dimer/fibrin(ogen) degradation products. This is associated with systemic hypercoagulability and frequent venous thromboembolic events. The degree of D-dimer elevation positively correlates with mortality in COVID-19 patients. COVID-19 also leads to arterial thrombotic events (including strokes and ischemic limbs) as well as microvascular thrombotic disorders (as frequently documented at autopsy in the pulmonary vascular beds). COVID-19 patients often have mild thrombocytopenia* and appear to have increased platelet consumption, together with a corresponding increase in platelet production.7

*a low level of platelets

The spike protein

Then, of course, we have the spike protein to consider. If this is the thing that the immune system recognises and attacks – which it almost certainly is – then cells which are growing SARS-Cov2 inside them, which then express the spike protein on their surface as the virions escape, will be identified as ‘the enemy’.

At which point, the immune system will start to attack the endothelium (and glycocalyx) in an attempt to wipe out the virus. This will tend to happen two or three weeks after the initial infection (sometimes sooner). This is after the immune system has had a real chance to identify the spike protein, then properly wind itself up to produce antibodies against it. This is the time of maximum attack on the endothelium.

This moment is often referred to as a cytokine storm. A point where every system in the immune system gets revved up and charges into action. At one point I wasn’t sure if I really believed in the cytokine storm. But I do now think it is a real thing. It is almost certainly why steroids (which very powerfully reduce the immune response) have been found to reduce mortality in severely ill patients.

All of which means it may well be the body’s own infectious disease defence system that creates much of the damage to the cardiovascular system. Not necessarily the virus itself.

Alternatively, it may be that the spike protein itself creates most of the blood clots. Here from the paper ‘SARS-CoV-2 spike S1 subunit induces hypercoagulability.’

‘When whole blood was exposed to spike protein even at low concentrations, the erythrocytes (red blood cells) showed agglutination, hyperactivated platelets were seen, with membrane spreading and the formation of platelet-derived microparticles8.’

Translation. Introduce SARS-CoV2 spike proteins into bloodstream, and it makes it clot – fast. Which is a worry.

Vaccines

It is a worry because the entire purpose of vaccination against SARS-Cov2 is to force cells to manufacture the spike protein(s) and then send them out into the bloodstream.

So, quick recap again, what do we know?

We know that a very high percentage of the people who die following a COVID19 infection, die as result of blood clots. We also know that they can also suffer severe myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), and suchlike.

We know that the spike protein can stimulate blood clots all by itself.

We know that the immune system attack on ‘alien’ proteins, such as the spike protein, can cause vasculitis.

We know that vaccines are designed to drive the rapid production of spike proteins that will enter the blood stream specifically to encounter immune cells, in order to create a powerful response that will lead to ‘immunity’ against future SARS-CoV2 infection.

We know that a number of people have died from blood clots following vaccination. To quote from the European Medicines Agency website report on the AZ COVID19 vaccine:

‘The PRAC (pharmacovigilance risk assessment committee) noted that the blood clots occurred in veins in the brain (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, CVST) and the abdomen (splanchnic vein thrombosis) and in arteries, together with low levels of blood platelets and sometimes bleeding 9.’

This was all pretty much predictable, if you understood what was going with SARS-CoV – nearly seventeen years ago.

My concern at this point is that, yes, we have identified very rare manifestations of blood clotting: cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and splanchnic (relating to the internal organs or viscera) vein thrombosis (SVT). These are so rare that it is unlikely that anything else – other than a novel vaccine – could have caused them. I have never seen a case and I had never even heard of them before COVID19 came along. And I have spent years studying the blood coagulation system, and vasculitis, and suchlike.

So, if someone is vaccinated, then has a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, or a splanchnic vein thrombosis, this is almost certainly going to be noted and recorded – and associated with the vaccination. Fine.

However, if there is an increase in vanishingly rare blood clots, could there also be an increase in other, far more common blood clots at the same time. If this was the case, then it would be far more difficult to spot this happening.

Millions and millions of people suffer strokes and heart attacks every year. Millions more suffer deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli. In fact, around the world, tens of millions die each and every year as a result of a blood clots forming somewhere in the body.

That is a hell of a lot of background blood clotting noise. Which means that it could be extremely difficult to disentangle cause and effect, especially if you are not looking. If an elderly person is vaccinated, then dies of a stroke a couple of weeks later. What caused the blood clot that led to the stroke? It is unlikely that any doctor would record this as a post-vaccine adverse event.

To give you one example of the difficulty of disentangling cause and effect, when you are looking at very common events, a few years ago Merck launched a drug called Vioxx (an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen, or naproxen but not exactly the same class of drug).  It didn’t go well. Here from the article ‘Merck Manipulated the Science about the Drug Vioxx.’

‘To increase the likelihood of FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval for its anti-inflammatory and arthritis drug Vioxx, the pharmaceutical giant Merck used flawed methodologies biased toward predetermined results to exaggerate the drug’s positive effects. Internal documents made public in litigation revealed that a Merck marketing team had developed a strategy called ADVANTAGE (Assessment of Differences between Vioxx And Naproxen To Ascertain Gastrointestinal tolerability and Effectiveness) to skew the results of clinical trials in the drug’s favor.

As part of the strategy, scientists manipulated the trial design by comparing the drug to naproxen, a pain reliever sold under brand names such as Aleve, rather than to a placebo.’

The scientists highlighted the results that naproxen decreased the risk of heart attack by 80 percent, and downplayed results showing that Vioxx increased the risk of heart attack by 400 percent. This misleading presentation of the evidence made it look like naproxen was protecting patients from heart attacks, and that Vioxx only looked risky by comparison. In fact, Vioxx has since been found to significantly increase cardiovascular risk, leading Merck to withdraw the product from the market in 2004.

Tragically, Merck’s manipulation of its data—and the FDA’s resulting approval of Vioxx in 1999—led to thousands of avoidable premature deaths and 100,000 heart attacks.’ https://www.ucsusa.org/resources/merck-manipulated-science-about-drug-vioxx

Yes, not exactly their finest hour. However, the point that I want to highlight from this sorry tale is that it is estimated that Vioxx caused 100,000 additional heart attacks, in the US alone, and nobody noticed. This figure was only worked out when researchers analysed the figures on increased risk, that had been seen in the clinical trials – at least the figures that were finally seen when Merck were forced to release the data.

You may think. How could one hundred thousand heart attacks simply be missed? Well, there are very nearly one million physicians in the US. If the heart attacks caused by Vioxx were evenly distributed, only one in five physicians would have seen anyone suffer because of taking Vioxx. In those physicians that did see one, or two, would they have made the connection? No, they would not. Not in a million years. There would not even be a record of any possible connection made.

Elderly person has a stroke, or heart attack. Elderly person took Vioxx. And…?

All of which means I am not gigantically concerned about CVST and SVT. Blood clots in these veins are rare, and remain rare, even after vaccination – and will never be missed, particularly when they happen in younger people. Because when younger people die, great efforts are made to establish the cause of death.

However, I can see no reason why these specific blood vessels would be targeted by blood clots. Perhaps there is some reason why clots only occur in the central venous sinus vein, or splanchnic vein following vaccination. If so, I have been unable to find out. I am more than willing to be educated on this.

Time to move on to the other worrying observation, that can be found within the report by the pharmacovigilance risk assessment committee (PRAC) – as mentioned above:

‘The PRAC noted that the blood clots occurred in veins in the brain (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, CVST) and the abdomen (splanchnic vein thrombosis) and in arteries, together with low levels of blood platelets and sometimes bleeding.

One blood clot, in one relatively small vein, is not going to cause a low platelet level. Nor will it cause bleeding – a sign of very low platelet levels. Which means that those unfortunate people who developed CVST and SVT almost certainly had widespread problems with other clots as well. Then, for reasons unknown, they triggered these forms of, vanishingly rare blood clot. The ones that killed them. The ones that were recognised – because they are so rare.

I shall finish here. You can join the dots yourself. Or not.

    1. B579

      Consider this. As you probably know, lupus features antibodies against RNA and DNA. It was also on early lists contraindicated for the jab, i.e. a major risk factor. Makes sense given lupus patients are already at risk for vascular damage.

      A 30 year old black American actress, Ashley Taylor Gerren, had lupus and passed in her sleep. Her friends on social media were upset saying they warned her about not getting the jab. There were no official reports confirming she had been vaccinated. Sad and frustrating there’s so little transparency.

      I would do some more detailed research and make an informed decision. For example also listen to the most recent videos by Prof Bhakdi on Bitchute and indeed someone has posted one of his videos in the comments below. He explains how the vaccines work and the risks in a way that is very easy to understand. Once you have done your research, if you have understood it correctly, then you won’t be going near any of these vaccines.

      Not one person with an autoimmune disorder should take this vaccine. Some scientists and doctors would argue that your existing autoimmune conditions are from your past vaccine schedule/history. Look up pathogenic priming and read for yourself. A good source on that is Dr James Lyons-Weiler. Find a doctor that will Rx Ivermectin for you when you are sure that your are infected with SARS COV2.

    I thought the Covid vaccine makers were promising that the vaccine and spike stayed in the muscle area of the injection site and given that we now seem to know that the spike plays a part in the virus mayhem, any travel into the blood stream would be a major concern. You seem to suggest that the production of the spike via the vaccine is intended to enter the blood stream, could you put me right on this… thanks

        There’s a lot about this going around at the moment on social media, mainly from a Canadian Professor of Viral Immunology called Byram Bridle. He cites new research from Japan obtained by a Freedom of Information Request regarding biodistribution studies which show that, unlike previously assumed, the “vaccine” ingredients don’t stay in the deltoid muscle and proteins have been found in divers places including breastmilk, the brain (in animals) and so on.

        However, someone has set up a new website using his name as the URL to try and discredit what he’s claiming – so beware, when you’re searching for him!

          A standard refrain used to downplay fears of blood clots caused by COVID vaccines is to state “the benefits outweigh the risks”.
          Benefits to who?
          Risks to who?

          In the field of Risk Management the risk of getting caught and sued for a known defective product is weighed against the cost of any settlements (in or out of Court) vs corporate earnings. Below a certain threshold, any risk (to corporate and shareholder earnings) is considered acceptable. Put another way, it is acceptable to maim and even kill people and if it doesn’t significantly impact earnings.
          Did anyone ask those who are put at risk if they are willing to be sacrificed in the name of corporate and shareholder earning? No. Because they (we) don’t matter.
          How about risks from side effects from medical treatments and pharmaceuticals? When a doctor says “the benefits outweigh the risks” does he or she have a signed declaration from all those who could be potentially affected that all risks have been fully and completely disclosed and that the patient understands and accepts the risks? If not, then where did the medical professional get the licence to weigh benefits vs risks on behalf of others? What happened to the Oath of Hippocrates to “First do no harm?” Has it become the Oath of Hipocrisy?

          Here is another strategy used to downplay risks and portray those such as Dr.Kendrick as a ‘conspiracy theorist.

          Eminence based medical professional: “We’ve come up with a medical procedure that has a 100% cure rate for headaches. The best part? There are zero side effects”,
          Me: “What is it?”
          Eminence based medical professional: “Decapitation!”
          Me: “But doesn’t that have side effects?”
          EBMP: “How dare you suggest that! Not one person who has had the procedure has ever complained. If there are no complaints, there are no side effects, period!”
          Me: “But what about death?”
          EBMP: “Death is a coincidence. You are a conspiracy theorist!”

          Let me ‘re-credit’ him:

          Profile

          Dr. Bridle is a viral immunologist who is passionate about improving life through two avenues of research. One arm of his research program is dedicated to designing and optimizing novel biotherapies for the treatment of cancers. The goal of his research team is to harness the natural power of a patient’s immune system to eliminate their own cancer cells. This represents the ultimate personalized therapy and holds the potential to treat cancers more effectively, safely, and at lower cost than current options. The second arm of his research program focuses on studying host responses to viruses and other inflammatory stimuli. This has implications for the treatment of infectious diseases and inflammation-mediated disorders. These two programs have been unified in a unique way. The Bridle lab is harnessing their expertise in making potent cancer vaccines and combining this with their interest in anti-viral immunity to develop vaccines to protect against infectious diseases such as those caused by highly pathogenic coronaviruses. Mentoring the next generation of Canadian scientists is a responsibility that Dr. Bridle takes very seriously. He also counts it a privilege to teach students in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, graduate and undergraduate programs at the University of Guelph.

          Research Interests

          The research program in the Bridle lab has two arms. One is to develop novel, highly targeted biotherapies for the treatment of cancers. In an effort to kill malignant cells with minimal bystander damage to normal tissues, two approaches are combined: (a) cancer immunotherapy that directs the power of a patient’s immune system against their own tumour(s) and, (b) oncolytic virotherapy, which utilizes viruses that replicate in and kill only cancerous cells. The exquisite specificity, systemic targeting capability and short treatment windows of these therapies hold promise that cancer patients might be effectively treated with reduced side-effects and at minimal cost. The goal is to translate the most promising iterations of these therapies into clinical trials in companion animals as a stepping stone towards testing in human patients. A second emphasis of the lab is the study of host responses to viruses. An area of focus is developing a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying virus-induced cytokine storms. Dr. Bridle’s research team has identified a critical role of signaling through the type I interferon receptor in the negative regulation of an extensive network of cytokines. Cytokine responses to viruses are often very different between females and males and the Bridle lab group is seeking to understand why. At the intersection of these two programs, is a research initiative aimed at modifying the research team’s optimized cancer vaccine platforms to target severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV)-2, which is the causative agent of the coronavirus disease identified at the end of 2019 (COVID-19). The long-term goal is to have a flexible technological platform to rapidly develop vaccines against highly pathogenic coronaviruses that may emerge in the future.

Thus, hopefully the Canadian Govt does not hijack all of his work like they did to her in America, and run him into prison and totally discredit the man. Dr Judy did all of this work you describe two decades ago, and Fauci stole it all and threw her under the bus.

          Thanks Jan, Dr Bakdi is always fascinating to listen to. After watching several of his interviews, I’ve noticed however that he often refers to God. He does this in the context of “we don’t need to do anything because God has designed the immune system to protect us”. This has the unfortunate effect of weakening his credibility. He obviously doesn’t believe this 100% because he’s been a hard-working medical professional for decades, but it gives off an impression.

          In this interview, Bhakti says that the COVID vaccines cannot work because they are designed to produce antibodies in the blood and COVID kills by attacking the lungs. My understanding is that influenza also attacks the lungs – yet we appear to have an effective vaccine against influenza (which works by producing antibodies in the blood). So I don’t follow his reasoning for that point.

      Organ distribution of spikes is heavily weighted on injection site, liver and spleen but it goes everywhere in small doses including the ovaries. Search twitter for ‘pfizer ovaries’ for visuals and links to Japanese lab animal studies.

      The situation as detailed by Dr Kendrick may indeed be worse than he indicates.

      “They made a mistake – they thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, only to discover it is a toxin, that can travel to many organs of the body, causing severe damage.”
      The spike proteins generated by both the mRNA vaccines don’t stay in the shoulder muscle, but spread to the brain, heart, ovaries, etc.

      They also know that the spike protein is what causes the damage with Covid—and now it is clear how it is causing so much damage in other parts of the bodies of the vaccinated.

      Dr. Byram Bridle, a Canadian vaccinologist is working with Japanese colleagues on the issue of the spikes NOT staying in the deltoid or in the nearby lymph nodes as we were told. No, they have been found bodywide, concentrating in certain organs like the spleen, adrenals, ovaries, etc. This is soon to be published. Meanwhile biodistribution studies from the vaccine makers themselves were recently leaked and show wide biodistribution of spike to be the case. In other words, they’ve lied to us… again!

          Actually, Montagnier says in the video on this page that he didn’t say everyone who is vaccinated will die within 2 years – see 1:19 into the video. However, he says that he expects many people to have side-effects that we don’t know about yet, including potential epigenetic effects passed down through the generations. He is extremely concerned about vaccinating children:

            Thank you for that clarification. I didn’t see the video but I when I saw a post claiming that a Nobel prize winner says that we are all gonna die within 2 years, I assumed it to be complete nonsense. The post, not the video…

          2. Eggs ‘n beer

            Dangerous assumption nowadays. As it turns out the post was wrong in that it had misquoted Montagnier. Unfortunately that doesn’t mean it’s complete nonsense. Neither Montagnier, or Sasha, or Eggs or anybody else knows enough about this thing to have any idea what is two years down the track. What piqued my attention about the results from the Japanese study of mRNA assimilation in rat organs was the exponential rise in the accumulation of lipids in the ovaries.

            https://www.docdroid.net/xq0Z8B0/pfizer-report-japanese-government-pdf#page=17

            (or page 7 of the tables at the bottom depending on how it opens for you).

            So I searched for how long spike proteins are manufactured for. Unfortunately I discovered today that

            “Smaller search engines such as DuckDuckGo that license results from Microsoft faced similar issues around “tank man” searches and said they expected a fix soon.“ swisscows it is then.

            https://swisscows.com/?culture=en&region=iv

            Anyway, the first article listed in my last DDG (or Microsoft) search said:

            “ That protein is unique to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but it’s harmless by itself. The body’s immune system recognizes the spike protein shouldn’t be there, so it produces the protection against it.”

            https://www.chop.edu/centers-programs/vaccine-education-center/video/what-stops-body-continuing-produce-covid-19-spike-protein-after-getting-mrna-vaccine

            Second in the list says:

            “The new study, however, is the first to directly show that the spike proteins themselves are able to cause harm, and also confirms that COVID-19 is primarily a vascular disease that damages blood vessel walls.”

            https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/spike-proteins-covid-19-and-vaccines/

            “The spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor on cells, downregulates their function, and causes damage to the endothelium cells that line lung tissue and blood vessels. The damage is apparently caused by effects on the mitochondria (energy producing organelles) in the cells – they change their shape and have reduced function. They then reproduced these effects in vitro using a culture of lung endothelial cells exposed to the spike protein.”

            So the two first articles from the search directly contradict each other. Will they kill everyone in two years? Improbable, I agree, but not absolute nonsense. Will they sterilise all women in two years? Well, who knows. The Japanese Pfizer study screams that we need to research this in fertile women before we can state an opinion. Which probably means we need a sample of dead, vaccinated fertile women. Not the sort of study that will attract many volunteers.

            Does this bring back into play the discussion on spike protein shedding? If they were harmless it wouldn’t matter if you picked up someone’s exhalations, or received blood from a vaccinee. As they’re not harmless, ??

            As I can replicate the “vaccines make you magnetic” video and I’m unvaccinated I’m leaving that one in the “absolute nonsense” basket though! (Just lick the magnet and it will stick, carefully wipe the saliva off on your arm as you remove it before trying to stick it on your other arm. Hang on! Can I use this as proof of vaccination?)

          3. anglosvizzera

            You clearly haven’t watched the recent videos from “Not on the Beeb” about the magnet phenomenon. Nobody licked magnets, magnets weren’t even necessary it turns out as various ferrous metallic objects also “stuck”. A UK NHS medical doctor “Dr T” went out and about in a London park to challenge random people. She surely wouldn’t be risking her reputation by resorting to subterfuge, would she?

          4. Sasha

            Showing an effect in vitro doesn’t necessarily translate into the same effect in vivo. The rat study should lead to further research, IMO, and you don’t need to kill vaccinated women of reproductive age to conduct it. You can probably do an observational study on vaccinated vs unvaccinated women of reproductive age and get data. But all of that is a far cry from saying that we all gonna be dead in two years.

      New studies are showing it travels. The ovaries and testes are full of spike proteins from the vaccinated. 😦 Research obtained by scientists shows COVID vaccine spike protein can travel from injection site + accumulate in organs + tissues including spleen, bone marrow, liver + “high concentrations” in ovaries.

      Reply
  4. Brad Voller

    Spike protein, on its own is the cause of the vascular, neurodegenerative, problems, not the virus.
    In the original theory it stay’s in deltoid, goes to local draining lymph node, activates immune system.
    But a new bio-distribution study from Japan tracked the vax and spike proteins.
    It gets into the blood within days of vax, accumulates in spleen, brain, bone marrow, liver, adrenal glands, with high concentrations in ovaries.
    Spike protein is a pathogenic toxin that causes damage if in circulation, binds to platelets, epithelial cells of blood vessels, clotting, bleeding, heart problems, brain blood clotting.

    Conclusion is “We made a big mistake, and didn’t realize it till now.” “We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen but never knew the spike protein itself was a pathogenic toxin protein.” “By vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin.” So now we can ask where is the science here we can trust? none of the covid-19 vaccines in use are actually “approved.” and we seem to be throwing caution to the wind as “at this time trial is unblinded, and the placebo group no longer exists”
    No new biodistribution studies for covid-19 vaccines
    Officials have consistently emphasised that despite shaving years off traditional timelines for producing vaccines, no compromises in the process were taken.20 However one type of study, tracking the distribution of a vaccine once injected in the body, was not conducted using any of the three vaccines currently authorised in the US.
    Pfizer and Moderna did not respond to The BMJ’s questions regarding why no biodistribution studies were conducted on their novel mRNA products, and none of the companies, nor the FDA, would say whether new biodistribution studies will be required prior to licensure.

      That was my first reaction on hearing how the mRNA chemical factory works. We know so little about how cells function that to use them in this way is dangerous. In particular our knowledge of mitochondrial chemistry is woefully small, considering how essential they are – as in, no functioning mitochondria, no you.

      So if spike proteins, as manufactured by the mRNA, damage mitochondria, I’m depressed, but not surprised.

Does it really come down to this?

      “They” are confident that the spike protein doesn’t travel — but the body surprises, doesn’t it? As far as I know, ANY cell can be instructed to make the protein, right? That might be the problem right there, if they can’t control which cell/where it’s made.

      There’s a great book called “Normal Accidents” by Charles Perrow which explains exactly how these sort of things happen, and are entirely predictable. Basically, humans think we know and can control all the things in the world, even the ones we don’t know about it, and the ones we don’t know we don’t know about it. We design overly complex systems that depend on linked systems of “non-failure” in order to work. And then they do eventually fail.

    I would like to share my experience in this matter. In December I had a severe UTI which took several weeks of antibotic to clear. I did experience some bleeding.. So far so good. In early Feb I had my first AZ jab. Five days later I experience severe bleeding in my urine for which lasted five days. This worryingly was accompanied by numerous blood clots looking like like liver. There was no pain and no infection detected. I had tests for prostate and bladder cancer all negative. After about a week the bleeding stopped on its own.and has not returned. No one seemed interested that the vaccine had something to do with this. I have refused a second jab although at some stage might risk a a different one. I am 73 suffered two MI’s three years ago and have four stents and am on the usual drugs.This has caused me great anguish especially worrying about cancer for weeks.I still cannot believe the AZ was not to blame.

The Yellow Card System for reporting adverse advents is not fit for purpose. Those adverse events that do get reported are only the tip of the iceberg.

The consultant said he was seeing a lot of this in women after vaccination. Is this another immune system response? And will these reactions make the Yellow Card scheme? Another friend has Bell’s palsy after his vaccine, after feeling very unwell for several days. In case he was having a stroke he phoned for an ambulance. One of the paramedics had had the same reaction after his vaccine. The hospital denied it could be vaccine related, so it wasn’t reported.

      My answer is that we just don’t know. There was inadequate research. It’s mostly been guesswork and supposition and instead of real science there has just been the opinions of scientists. There don’t seem to be any correctly constructed, post hoc, statistically robust, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. Well, I haven’t found any. We are marching along this road in our millions, eventually billions, with nothing more to guide us than blind trust in big pharma, politicians, and (excuse my bluntness) scum like Fauci and Ghebreyesus.
      And the thing that really, really makes me angry is that in most countries, certainly in the USA, it’s not allowed to use vaccines against a disease for which there are effective treatments, and the government was persuaded by big pharma to ban the candidate treatments (especially Ivermectin) to give their so-called vaccines a clear path.

      The standard response from many doctors is “the risk of death or long-term complications from covid is MUCH higher than the risk from the vaccine!” People on my local forum even say this is true for teenagers (to justify vaccinating 12-18 year olds) which is just mind-boggling to me.

    So, reading between the lines…..

    In near future we may very well see an ocean of all kinds of cloth related patients as also many will die in the coming !2 to 24 months of all kinds of reasons where most of the deceased never will get an autopsie. Big Pharma will continue to exclaim if the cause of death isn’t determined, don’t blame pharma. And even if one is able to proof it indeed was the vector syringe or mrna that did it, big pharma already have secured a non sue pact world wide.

    Because naming the genes therapies syringes vaccines, legally the liability is in the individual governments whom instantly will state, because of the health of the population we had to act on best effort bases. No one can sue ones own government and even if you can, there will be a ton of exits in favor of …. So, where half the worlds population has been LURED and MANIPULATED by specialists en scientists in manipulation of human behavior, read, like those ‘manipulating you people in buying stuff techniques’, many are panicking and freaking out exclaiming to need the jab.

    The thing is, they have been imprinted the idea that once you have the genes-syringe, one is ‘protected’ and those not taking the EXPERIMENTAL POTENTIAL LETHAL jab, are traitors, the enemy, the losers, the selfish only thinking of themselves, not the week or frail. Those hypnotized by FEAR as a deflector, terrified that without the jab, they run into the lethal risk of … not understanding that the jab is the lethal risk.

    An experimental matter that has never been tested on anyone with a real sarscov2 infestation. Even worse, all those with antibodies and those prior being infested, or still infested? They were left out of the equation, just as younger people under the age of 18. Recently Fauci exclaimed, as Bill Gates did, we will come to a moment that we will ‘vaccine’ children from six months up to two years.

    And no one ever knows what the consequences will be n terms of time. It takes ordinarily 6 – 10 years to create a vaccine and test it to as safe as possible. here above is why that is. By ignoring all the scientific ‘Golden Standards’, letting everyone to believe that the syringe will save your life, it will be a fact of time what the real impact of those jabs will be.

    I have heard words of military specialists that will go on a hunt if one of their loved ones dies of the genes therapies. As we speak, in Belgian a very experienced soldier is missing for weeks now, taking with him a heavy sharp shooters rifle, equipment, over thousand rounds of ammo and he has named those high on his list. One of them? The Belgian Fausti, whom is in safe house heavily guarded. The reason? Just before the outbreak that ‘honorable Belgian Fausti can be seen in a salesvideo on youtube called…

    “How to sell a pandemic…’

    You think he is the only one with a money scheme by creating panic and fear? In the first row there is a Dutch virologist called Ab Osterhaus, whom exactly used that technique in the Netherlands to …. receive mass requests for delivery of ‘vaccines’ to the Dutch government whom, consequently, demonized existing medicine as HCQ and Zinc and Ivermectine for over six months awaiting the first doses of ‘vaccines’, resulting in appr. 16.000 – 17.000 corona fatalities.

      Not to mention they added stroke to the Covid-19 symptoms list, so if they’ve ever had a positive PCR swab then it will never be recorded as a vax injury.

    I am afraid that, contrary to many people here, that article was too medical for me, so here are my tentative conclusions from just skimming it:

    1) The spike protein is toxic in itself and because it can invoke a deranged immune response.

    2) It is therefore extremely dangerous to persuade our own cells to produce this protein in a way that can’t be turned off.

    3) Clearly the ‘vaccines’ all aim to do exactly this – or is it true that the Sputnik vaccine is more conventional in its mode of operation?

    4) You mention that the spike protein is present in earlier versions of SARS-COV, but if it is not found in other pathogens, is it possible that it was deliberately inserted into one of these, since it is becoming increasingly obvious that gain of function research was going on in Wuhan, aided by US grant money:

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fauci-emails-backlash

    5) I am unclear as to whether cells that have been genetically manipulated will get killed off over time so that the danger from the vaccines will fade away with time.

    6) I am also unclear as to how likely it is that the m-RNA in m-RNA vaccines will get converted to DNA by reverse transcriptase and potentially enter our genomes.

    Clearly, Malcom, when you ask us to join the dots, that is not an exercise for the reader, but a precaution that is needed to keep you ‘inoculating’ at least some people with the knowledge to refuse the vaccines come what may. I am really hoping that others here will.

        Some very recent research shows that polymerase theta can act in the same way as viral reverse transcriptase(!) as part of the Eukaryote cellular repair kit – which includes humans. So now it looks like we don’t even need viral input to get such a phenomenon (inclusion of mRNA into DNA), if human cells are capable of doing the same thing.

        Dr Kendrick said that Dr Kendrick has been vaccinated. In my NHS job, primarily dealing with elderly patients in care homes, I could not have continued working – and hopefully doing some good – without getting the vaccine. So, I weighed up the risk/benefit analysis for myself. I did not feel I was going to gain any protection as I had (almost certainly) been infected early last year – at a time before testing was available. I do not expect my actions to guide anybody else, and I never provide individual medial advice via my blog, or e-mails.

          Dr K – my daughter had Covid last year and did a few antibody tests as part of the national surveillance. As she’s only 28 she doesn’t want to risk any of these jabs, but wonders if there’s any way of “proving” her likely immunity so as to be able to travel freely (she’s a musician)? I feel that there should be the option of having the jab, LFT testing when required, or evidence of prior infection and that people who’ve had Covid shouldn’t be expected to have the jab. It seems that with SARS and MERS there is still robust immunity for people who were infected.

            It’s not possible to travel freely even if one has the jab… so perhaps wait until they fulfil that promise?

            Keep in mind one reason for covid is to justify reducing our oil burn — and travel uses around 8% of all oil … so dramatically reducing travel is an excellent way to achieve this goal.

            Notice how every time a bubble opens … very quickly it gets shut .. people get stranded…and the message is …. it is very risk to travel… so very few do. But they can still use the possibility of travel as a carrot to get people injected

          You may not be giving advice, but looking at the comments, many of your readers are alarmed and scared off the vaccine by your posts. Or, of course, only those who are already sceptical about the vaccine read them, or a bit of both. Im a retired GP with MS and like most of us are very keen on vaccination. Mine was fine with few side effects at all. I only know a few people who have had COVID19, one young man is suffering with shortness of breath 6 months later, another have a very nasty short illness, and another took 5 months to fully recover. The risks of infection are very real too.

            Well, lucky you. My mother had MS for 45 years, dying at 67. Whether she linked it to the vaccines that she received in her teens and early 20’s I know not but she didn’t vaccinate me, or my sister until she was 11 when she got the MMR mainly for rubella and has suffered from RA ever since, …. despite being a SRN, M & HV.

            My risk assessment is that it’s much better to get Covid for the benefits of immunity from 98% of the variants. Assuming I’m in the 19% who CAN get it, i.e. not in the 81% with T cell immunity.

          5. anglosvizzera

            In your case, the risk versus benefit from the vaccine is clearly a reason why people like yourself would be happy to accept it.

            However, for the younger generation, and children in particular, this cannot be assessed at present. From the long video discussion with Dr Robert Malone linked to elsewhere in the comments, here’s a short excerpt where they talk about the new information obtained from the Japanese drug regulator via FOI requests. I think that this information is vital for young people to know, or for parents whose children are being targeted next, particularly with regard to fertility and autoimmune disease. Informed consent is key, and so far people aren’t being given any information about the potential harms of mRNA vaccines:

          6. AhNotepad

            colinbannon, people can, if they wish, “believe” in vaccines. Looking at yellowcard.ukcolumn.org shows a screen with a big red button which brings up the MHRA Yellow Card data for interrogation. The MHRA have not investigated any of the reports and published their findings, why not? Some of the events are pretty serious, and the trials have another 18 months to go, so I expect there will be many more reports. I can do without any of those adverse effects, so it might be reasonable to wait until the data is available, and the conclusions published, then I can make an informed decision.

            I’m retired with comorbidities, had covid, then treated it with elderberry concentrate and zinc. Was supplementing with zinc and vitamin C & D before I got it. I was going out among people unmasked during the height of the epidemic.

            Oh, my experience? Covid was a mild, occasional cough and went away within 12 hours of treatment. My wife, who is a little older, had standard ILI symptoms, but those disappeared within 24 hours of treatment.

            My medic daughter, who likely infected the rest of us, had a loss of energy and she regained her energy within 12 hours of treatment.

            We experienced a second infection three weeks later and had an even quicker recovery.

            The baby never showed symptoms.

            No long term effects for any of us. Treatment will do that. Vaccines, not so much. (You can die from covid after getting vaccinated.)

    Dr Kendrick’s remarks about doctors not recognizing Vioxx-related heart attacks until statistical studies were performed are being repeated in respect of the mRNA vaccines, as he implies. Against my wishes, my 64 yo partner, no history of cardiovascular disease, suffered a crippling stroke 16 days after Moderna vax, followed by discovery of blood clots in leg. Hemorrhagic conversion, so blood thinners not possible. Paralyzed on left side, will probably never recover use of left arm, and uncertain for left leg. I insisted (hospital in SW Florida) that his stroke be reported in VAERS. However, the hospital internist thinks I am “obsessed” about the vax, and that this stroke is totally normal. He and the surgeon who performed the surgery stated that partner had underlying atherosclerosis, despite their having no baseline data to confirm this. Ignorant and arrogant, like so many doctors. By the way, spike shedding “is a thing”. Eight days after my partner’s vax, I developed unexplained bruises on my thighs. Still happening three weeks later.

        That’s what Lockdown was all about Sam – to limit people to their very small family groups and stop them going to Pub / Club / W.I. Meetings / Golf / Football / Cricket / other. Oh and work of course, by means of WFH and furlough.

        Keep them in small, close-knit groups where they are disinclined to discuss anything because they mostly all hold the same view anyway. Hormonal pubescent teenagers don’t even talk to their parents at the best ot times let alone discuss the importance of things like the gaping logic holes in this pLandemic. The Bar scene in the 2005 film “V for Vendetta” springs to mind.

        If you quietly limit discussion (rather than overtly censoring it) then those logic holes don’t become apparent…. until much later. The words of one ‘Josef Goebbels’ spring to mind:-

        “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State”.

    What is also concerning me is the fact (especially in Europe) as people are mixing and matching their second doses. Add into the mix the addition of up and coming booster jabs and everyone will be uncertain where to apportion the blame as to exactly what jab did the damage. This saga will go on for years.

      I think it highly probable that mixing vaccines and adding booster shots is part of a strategy to make it impossible to indentify what, if any jab, was responsible for a ‘side effect’.

      In the ’70s I was involved in an investigation into the use of DES (diethylstilbestrol) as a growth promotant in cattle. In Canada it was the only hormone approved for use as a growth promotant. A justifiable concern that was being pursued by a group of academics was that when DES was given to pregnant mothers to prevent stillbirths a significant number of offspring daughters developed a rare form of vaginal cancer at around 18 years of age that could not be labelled ‘a conincidence’. After the concerns were communicated to the federal government we were assured that DES would be thoroughly investigated, After a lengthy delay DES was banned with a lot of fan fare in the media. What I only discovered later was that six hormones were quietly approved at the same time the use of DES as a growth promotant was banned. Approving six hormones made it impossible to attribute any adverse events to a hormone. That was the intent.

    Some of the other side effects noted during the trials of the AstraZeneca vaccine and subsequently are also due to immune system response, Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), transverse myelitis and possibly myocarditis/endocarditis.
    GBS is known to be associated with gastroenteritis.
    I’ve also seen thrombocytopenia associated with gastroenteritis.
    In both cases these developed about 14 days post infection.
    Although systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) as an indicator for possible sepsis has been superceded by the sepsis stratification tools from the sepsis society, some of the symptoms of SIRS may be appropriate, for example elevated blood sugar levels, which could lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

    Thankyou Dr. Kendrick. This joins a few more of the dots together.

    Since the spike protein does so much damage, it does seem somewhat misguided to use mRNA to get our own cells to make it.

    I think the idea of injecting the vaccine into a muscle is that it’s immobilised there and doesn’t enter the blood – it appears that we really don’t want the vaccine going into the bloodstream. However, muscles do have a blood supply, and where I’ve seen video of people being injected the needle is just pushed in and the plunger pushed down – there’s no attempt to try sucking first to see if you’ve ended up in a blood vessel (you’d see the contents of the syringe go red). I’d thus suggest that for a proportion of people (I don’t know how many) they will have the vaccine injected into a small blood-vessel in the muscle, and these people would, I think, have a higher chance of blood-clots because of that. Seems to be somewhat of a lottery.

    When I first heard of the mRNA treatment, I thought it was a clever idea – just get the body to tag that spike protein as foreign and to be got rid of. At that time I didn’t know that the spike protein was also active in itself and not just the key the virus used to get into cells. I would however expect the vaccine manufacturers to have known that.

    With the results coming in from India now, it does seem that rejecting HCQ and IVM was misguided, too. Some of that was obvious earlier, when Switzerland banned HCQ for a few weeks and then allowed it again. Still, I suppose that if it was officially accepted that there was a medical treatment available, then the vaccines would not have had an emergency authorisation.

      “Since the spike protein does so much damage, it does seem somewhat misguided to use mRNA to get our own cells to make it”.

      Courtesy is a good thing, but you can have too much of a good thing. I would rephrase your statement:

      “Since the spike protein does so much damage, it does seem bloody stupid to use mRNA to get our own cells to make it”.

      Also, “When I first heard of the mRNA treatment, I thought it was a clever idea…”

      Clever ideas are a good thing… but to become science, they must be rigorously tested by people whose greatest desire is to prove them wrong. If they survive a few years of that, they might become science. The next step after that is to start a research program for applications – such as “vaccines”. That might take a further 10-12 years before it is reasonable to believe the treatment is mostly harmless.

      Politicians might almost be defined as persuasive people who often have clever ideas, but never stop to test them because they are afraid they will turn out to be wrong.

      Reply
      1. Simon Derricutt

        Prudence – I think it’s necessary to be courteous, maybe especially on Dr. Kendrick’s blog where he puts so much thought into the posts. Possibly it wasn’t understood early on that the spike protein was itself so dangerous. Now that is understood, though, it’s “bloody stupid” to continue to inject people with something that produces them. Though I think that the cells won’t continue to produce spike proteins when the mRNA is consumed, I’m not certain that is true, and I don’t know whether they will continue to produce them for the life of that cell. If so, that means that the immune system will be removing that spike protein from the blood and other cells for a very long time (maybe up to 10 years) and will thus be a bit compromised when it comes to fighting other infections.

        Of course, I don’t have the deep knowledge needed here to know all that’s happening when mRNA is added to the body. I suspect that the people who do have enough knowledge aren’t certain, and that the people who are certain are probably fooling themselves they know everything required.

        It’s known that because the virus is RNA-based, and not DNA-based, new variants will happen far more frequently and that variants that evade the vaccines will have an evolutionary advantage and will quickly become the dominant strains. Since the vaccines do not stop people being infected or infectious (though they do seem to reduce infectiousness somewhat), that effectively makes the vaccinated population into a gain-of-function laboratory. To me, that appears to be a bad strategy. Thus the “clever idea” of vaccinating everyone as fast as possible maybe isn’t so clever, and will likely lead to a more-deadly new wave of a variant that evades the vaccines. Possibly the politicians believe that vaccination is the only possible way out, since the medicines that impede virus replication have been systematically rubbished by influential people in the WHO and in the media. A doctor prescribing IVM or HCQ risks fines and losing their licence. I figure that people reading this blog will be aware of the data from Switzerland, Peru, India, etc. that show that such medication works better than vaccination, and it’s also logical that they will be effective against all variants. To me, it looks a far better strategy to use those medicines at first sign of symptoms, or even prophylactically, since they’re dirt cheap and very safe. The virus is stopped, and the people become immune to the variant they’ve had, and if they catch a different variant later then they can do the same again. Since there would be fewer replication events, there would also be fewer new variants produced, and the whole thing would become yesterday’s news.

        It seems to me that the politicians are more into avoiding being blamed for the problems rather than digging into the data and trying out concurrent fixes. Using IVM in one area could easily have been tried, and the cost would be low (costs more for the organisation than the medicine itself). You’ll have noticed there’s a group-think situation, and the tech giants are great at censoring discussion of alternative ideas. Questions about the origin of the virus (leak from a lab in Wuhan) were quashed until a week or so ago, but now suddenly this glaringly-obvious explanation can be talked about. Maybe we’ll see the same happen with IVM as a treatment. We can hope….

          As I said above, it’s damn obvious this is a bioweapon (that’s the raison d’etre of “gain of function” research), and thus it is clear that the ubiquitous “they” were well aware that the spike protein was the killer.

          Simon, here’s Christian Drosten on that for you (from https://www.republik.ch/2021/06/05/herr-drosten-woher-kam-dieses-virus ). He seems to think the virus is running out of tricks.

          The one potential hole I see is this. T-cells would get better training on a live virus than on manufactured spike proteins because they will also remember other parts of the virus’ surface. Yet previous infection with the wild type virus does not seem to protect from severe, even fatal cases for P1 Manaus. So why would a vaccine?

          We have talked a lot about global vaccine inequality in recent weeks. As long as billions of people have not been vaccinated, this virus can keep mutating. Or will it eventually run out of tricks?
          Presumably, the latter is the case.

          Why?
          To understand this, we need to talk about the immune system. There are different parts of the immune system that protect us from infection and from disease. Antibodies that protect us from infection wear off quickly and can only recognize the virus in a few places. So we can become infected again relatively soon, especially if the virus has mutated in those very places.

          But?
          But we only get sick slightly. The part of the immune system that protects us from disease is much more effective. Therefore, the vaccination probably actually protects us from getting seriously ill for several years. This is due to the so-called T-cells, which have been the subject of constant discussion for the past year: Unlike antibodies, they don’t really care if the virus mutates a little bit: T cells can recognize it on the basis of many different characteristics. So the virus can easily lose a few of its characteristics through mutations.

          So that means: the worries that the virus floating around will mutate and the current vaccinations will soon be worthless are not justified?
          What you can see: The difference between the virus variants that have appeared on different continents is not that big. From a virological point of view, there are good reasons to assume that Sars-2 does not have that much more in store than what it has been able to show us so far. Coronaviruses generally mutate more slowly and to a lesser extent than, for example, influenza viruses, which actually have a much greater pandemic potential. So a mutant that suddenly causes another severe illness in the majority of vaccinated people, I can’t imagine that.

      Hi, Simon,

      According to this reference, intra-muscular injection is preferred precisely because muscles are “highly vascularized”, and the substance injected more easily enters the general circulation.

      https://pmj.bmj.com/content/97/1148/400

      This sounds as though vaccine-makers don’t care if some of the “injectant” (the lipid nano-particle) migrates to other parts of the body. I’m confused as to whether they should care, because it implies a variety of cells could become spike-protein-makers and thus targets of an immune response. This includes the vascular endothelium.

      Also, the mRNA is supposed to trigger cells (which cells? any cells?) to make and move the spike protein to the cell membrane for “presentation” to the immune system. Was it intended that the protein enter the general circulation, or was there just no concern this could happen? How does it happen? Apparently it does happen. Does it accidentally break off? I’m very confused on this point, too.

      I really wish I could grill someone on these questions to get the whole picture. Kind of leads to an “if…then” scenario. “If you really did something this stupid, then you deserve to be….tarred and feathered.”

      See what I mean?

        Hi, Gary. In all honesty, I don’t blame Trump or Biden or most of the other politicians for any (potential) vaccine fiasco. The politicians are not medical people. They have to rely on presumably expert advice to guide their actions in the “pandemic”. Their goal is simply to ride out the crisis and try to stay in office. Hopefully not too many people die, because that bodes poorly for the politicians.

        The public health people are another matter. They mostly knew the state of the science (lockdowns don’t work, masks and social distancing are questionable, good treatments and vaccines take time to develop and test). Instead of standing firm on the science, they acquiesced to (or actively promoted) the measures the politicians wanted so it would look as though they were doing “something”.

        With the recent chatter about the Wuhan lab, there may be some deeper issues within public health at the national level (I’m looking at you, Dr Fauci).

        Assessing accountability and finding good solutions going forward is probably going to be impossible. The situation is almost hopelessly complicated, and too many people have big exposed butts to cover. And the news media is no help. Their business thrives on inciting panic and fingering villains. Keeps eyeballs glued to the “news” (and the commercials that follow).

        The clear, concise commentary from people like Dr Kendrick is the sort of thing we peasants need to keep our heads clear. Now we just have to do what we can to keep such folk from being “canceled”.

            I do. They have made this the biggest thing since the Cold War, WWII, whatever. It behoves them to at least learn as much about it as possible as many of us here and elsewhere have done, and take some responsibility instead of deferring to the self-proclaimed experts. Instead all they’ve done is throw borrowed money at the problem, increased the suicide, depression and poverty rates with lockdowns, masks, social distancing and pseudo health measures and raised most people’s fear levels to maximum.

      One the interesting comments on this video: “What of the possibility of thrombocytopaenia being caused by accidental intravenous vaccination? Altho the WHO recommendations for virtually all vaccines is that they should be given intra-muscularly, only Denmark is recommending aspiration. Therefore there has to be a small risk of accidental intravenous injection.”

    [Still thrashing about in quicksand. At least I am. At least I am certain about my uncertainties.]

    Looking at proposed SARS-COV-2 targets besides ACE2…

    Abstract:

    “A novel betacoronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which caused a large respiratory outbreak in Wuhan, China in December 2019, is currently spreading across many countries globally. Here, we show that a TMPRSS2-expressing VeroE6 cell line is highly susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection, making it useful for isolating and propagating SARS-CoV-2. Our results reveal that, in common with SARS- and Middle East respiratory syndrome-CoV, SARS-CoV-2 infection is enhanced by TMPRSS2.”

    https://www.pnas.org/content/117/13/7001?cct=2302

    TMPRSS-2 is expressed by epithelial cells, including the nasal epithelium and alveolar cells. Lots of targets and TMPRSS-2 is androgen-responsive, which might help explain the sex-based mortality difference of covid.

    I wonder if SARS-COV-2 doesn’t first infect the nose and from there proceed to the vascular system?

    Even though neuropilin-1 is a potential target of SARS-COV-2, I have read that pathology studies have shown no SARS-COV RNA in the brains of deceased covid patients.

    Protein CD-147 doesn’t look like a target of SARS-COV-2, based on a study.

      You are a rare reader who spotted several sloppy (and frankly irresponsible) statements by Kendrick in this article.
      Indeed, SARS-CoV-2 in most of the cases, first infects epithelial cells of nasopharynx, upper respiratory ways. And for a minority of the infected, it does not spread into lungs. That is why anosmia, or loss of smell, is a common symptom COVID-19.
      TMPRSS2 is not “besides ACE2”. If a cell expresses both ACE2 and TMPRSS2, the infectiousness of SARS-CoV-2 is enhanced. But other receptors for SARS-CoV-2, including CD147, may exist and play a role in tissues that don’t express ACE2.
      This article is full of errors. It also shows that Kendrick does not know how immune system works. Malcolm Kendrick is a thinker but he has lost a lot of credibility by publishing this article. It has been 1.5 years into the epidemic, but Kendrick did not bother to do some basic reading. Strange.
      Kendrick, and many of his elderly patients, probably also get a flu vaccine every year. The current flu vaccines are a fraud, because the majority of people above 50 years of age do not even seroconvert and any protection against infection is unlikely.
      Flu vaccine, as many other vaccines, causes platelet activation, that is, the same or similar phenomenon that Kendrick describes here. Yearly flu vaccination is useless and is as dangerous to Kendrick’s elderly patients as COVID-19 vaccines are. It does not look like Kendrick is aware of this.
      Strange. Disappointing.

    Issues with clotting and platelets has already been identified in the recently authorised Janssen vaccine:

    “Thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome
    A combination of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia, in some cases accompanied by bleeding, has been observed very rarely following vaccination with COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen. This includes severe cases of venous thrombosis at unusual sites such as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), splanchnic vein thrombosis as well as arterial thrombosis concomitant with thrombocytopenia. Fatal outcome has been reported. These cases occurred within the first three weeks following vaccination, and mostly in women under 60 years of age.”

    First – the plural of vasculitis is vasculitides (Greek)!
    Vasculitis has been described many times as following a viral infection; I am not certain, but I think that I and my colleague Richard Salisbury were among the first (Bamji and Salisbury, Cytomegalovirus and Vasculitis, BMJ 1978, i, 623-4) – over 40 years ago. Nothing new here then. The mechanism for post-vaccination blood clotting is likely to be due to a reaction either to the spike protein or the carrier adenovirus. However – I wrote to the Britsh Medical Journal on 10th April this year as follows:

    “The pattern of blood clotting with a low platelet count seen after administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine appears identical to the phenomenon of immune thrombocytopenia that was described last year in patients with Covid-19, occurring in over 50% of severe cases in some studies (1). A case report in the BMJ described the clinical management of one such patient (2).
    The Oxford University website says, “The Oxford vaccine contains the genetic sequence of this surface spike protein. When the vaccine enters cells inside the body, it uses this genetic code to produce the surface spike protein of the coronavirus. This induces an immune response, priming the immune system to attack the coronavirus if it later infects the body.” (3) Other vaccines do not use this mechanism. Thus it is likely that the vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia is a cross-reaction from the antibodies induced by the spike protein. Other infections are known to trigger the phenomenon (4).
    Immune thrombocytopenia of any cause is commoner in women, so that predisposition alone may account for the female predominance in the vaccine-induced subset.
    Treatment in the form of steroids and intravenous immunoglobulin exists. All that matters therefore is a rapid diagnosis of the problem. A 1 in 100,000 risk of the complication from vaccination is far outweighed by the acquisition of severe Covid-19, in which the same thing is likely to occur anyway, but with other life-threatening consequences on top.

    That’s all rather scientific, but the alarming thing about it is that this phenomenon occurs in up to 50% of patients with severe Covid-19. To me that suggests that it’s something in the spike protein that triggers it. So if the risk of it occurring after vaccination is about 1 in 100,000, but the risk after getting Covid-19 may be as high as 50%, then I know which I prefer. Vaccination may not appeal, but it may be the least bad option, not least as all the other horrid bits of Covid-19 don’t seem to occur.

    Immune thrombocytopenia of this pattern has been described after a number of viral infections, and indeed what we called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura when I was a student (idiopathic means we don’t know what causes it) may well be a viral reaction in many cases. In any case as long as you recognise it early it’s treatable.

      abamji: Thank you very much for this explanation. The glaring flaw, though, in your comparison of covid risk with vaccine risk is this: What percentage of the population became seriously ill with the infection? Certainly it must be less than 1%. The rest have essentially no risk, and those who were infected and recovered likely have lifetime immunity. Yet the vaccines are being forced upon the entire world’s population. So the vaccine-risk calculation is too low by at least two orders of magnitude. And why would anyone be willing to take a medical intervention with no clinical trials even close to completion? And no product liability for manufacturers or governments? And worrisome reports of vaccine injury to the young and healthy? This is madness.

      1. abamji

        All medical interventions have potential side-effects; the trick is to decide whether the benefit outweighs the risk. You are quite right that the overall risk of developing Covid-19 is low; however, the risk of developing it from contact with a low-risk (eg low age patient) if you are high-risk (eg over 70, with a concomitant risk factor such as obesity or diabetes) is very high. In the developing world close contact in overcrowded accommodation is likely to be a very important factor. It may at least in part explain why in the UK Asian groups have been disproportionately affected). So while you may not be at much risk as a younger person you may still be a potential risk, should you acquire the virus, to an older one. It is likely that some of the spread in care homes was from infected staff. I accept the trials so far have all been short-term, but if vaccination breaks the link between acquisition and developing severe illness (as it seems to do from the evidence so far) then there is a population benefit which can’t be ignored.

          I have no confidence in the vaccine trials. They all look very dodgy. We have no idea of the current false negative rate in the field for covid PCR tests, which likely has changed since the various studies that were done early which the Hopkins studies relied on. We no longer have much time between sample collection and lab testing, so the false negative rate should decline.

          PCR tests show exposure and nothing more. They say nothing about any current ILI. And PCR tests likely undercount exposure.

          With this being the case, there is simply no excuse for not making viral culturing part of the vaccine study design.

            Now that the vaccine trials are unblinded and the control groups have been injected, how will anyone be able to know about any longer-term adverse effects? Apart from taking care of my immune system to lower my risk of Covid and therefore hopefully avoiding the need for any “vaccine”, I will be refusing the jab (as are many people I know), in order to be part of a “Public Control Group”. However the cynic in me is wondering whether the pressure on practically all age groups now to get jabbed is to try and hide any future adverse events?

      You contradict yourself, it seems. In the first sentence you say that immune thrombocytopenia “occurs in up to 50% of patients with severe Covid-19”. In the very next sentence you say “the risk (of immune thrombocytopenia) after getting Covid-19 may be as high as 50%”.

      So which one is it? Up to 50% of patients with severe Covid-19 or up to 50% of patients with Covid-19?

      Reply
      1. abamji

        I quote from the first reference in my BMJ piece:

        “The incidence of thrombocytopenia in patients with COVID-19 has been variable across studies. Mild thrombocytopenia has been observed in up to one-third of these patients, with even higher rate in patients with severe disease (57.7%) compared with nonsevere disease (31.6%). A late-onset mild thrombocytopenia (mean time for nadir count from illness onset 28.3 days) for short duration (mean 4.3 days) has also been reported. However, majority did not have any severe degree of thrombocytopenia ( 50% over 24–48 h) as can be seen in patients with immune thrombocytopenia irrespective of inciting event.”

        The article begins “Immune thrombocytopenia, often known as immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), has emerged as an important complication of COVID-19.”

        There is thus a range. Hope this helps.

      Congratulations on your grasp of greek. Perhaps your mathematics needs brushing up on? You say that “this phenomenon occurs in up to 50% of patients with severe Covid-19.” Leaving aside that “up to 50%” isn’t a number that you can base any decision on (is it 1%? 0.007%?38%?) you then state that “but the risk after getting Covid-19 may be as high as 50%,” which doesn’t correlate with your previous statement about the risk applying to patients with severe Covid.

      I think that before you talk about risk you need state some definitions. What severe Covid is, for example. Let’s start with the 50% figure per your ref. 1. Looking at B&B’s paper, they state that mild thrombocytopenia has been observed in up to 57.7% of severe cases. Following through to their reference no.2, we see from table 2 that 90 patients were observed with mild thrombocytopenia out of a total of 1099 patients who were hospitalised. Of those, 173 were regarded as severe cases, but no definition of disease severity is given. Note though that only 67 patients were sufficiently sick to be admitted to ICU, require ventilation or died. Curiously the denominator for the 57.7% calculation is 156, not 173 – I can’t see any explanation for this.

      So, out of 7,736 patients who were hospitalised in China by 29th January 2020, they selected 1099 patients (no criteria given) of whom 90 suffered mild thrombocytopenia. There is really nothing you can take away from this data set. You don’t know how many people in total were sick. I guess what you can surmise is that if you vaccinated 1.4bn Chinese and if 1/100,000 get thrombocytopenia that would be 14,000 cases.

      Case closed.

      Supplementary question: is the risk of 1 in 100,000 the risk per vaccination, or the risk per victim? Because if it is the latter, with two jabs per person the risk could be as high as 1 in 50,000 people.

        Severe Covid, to me, is the development of signs of a cytokine storm. Both vasculitis and platelet consumption are features of this whether it is caused by SARS-CoV-2 or another trigger (I have seen this and it is not good). The chemistry of severe Covid is a clear indicator that platelet function is seriously altered; this is a phenomenon we used to call disseminated intravascular coagulation, and is a common feature of sepsis. Your point about a range of risk is taken not least because the risk of developing Covid-19 is so much higher in older age groups. The risk of thrombosis from a second vaccination seems (so far) to be very small but you are correct that, given the small numbers, the exact figures may change. But bottom line – the overall risk of a significant vaccine complication is still in my view the safer option than hoping (a) you won’t get infected and (b) if you do, you won’t develop Covid-19

          abamji: While we do have data concerning covid morbidity and mortality on a population level, though this is certainly unreliable (due to the use of PCR to define a case and a redefinition of cause of death on death certificates [at least in the U.S.] ), we simply cannot know the risk from the vaccines. In the U.S., VAERS picks up <1% of vaccine injuries, and with the climate of fear doctors are now working under, how many will be reporting them? Yet, in five months they have received more than 5,000 reports of death after the covid vaccines, more than the total of all other vaccines over the past fifteen years. It appears that post-marketing surveillance in the UK is no better. We have no long term safety data at all, and no trial data, since none of them are even close to completion. These are truly experimental treatments. They must be questioned.

          About 40% of the population has immunity to covid, so it makes no sense for them to get vaccinated for covid.

          We have several effective antiviral treatments for mild covid (maybe a cocktail, optimally), so vaccination is unnecessary for strong protection from covid.

          Covid vaccinations do not prevent infection by SARS-COV-2 nor deaths from covid. Hence, you may just be adding risk with little benefit. Here again, antiviral treatment may be necessary.

          SARS-COV-2 mutates and there are variants that bypass some of the current vaccines, so antiviral treatments and new vaccines will be needed indefinitely.

          T-cell immunity to covid is far superior to the vaccines for protection because it activates before the dangerous antibody response to the spike proteins and it also is a more diverse and robust response than the response produced by the vaccines that rely only on immunity to the spike protein. So, a plan that relies on natural immunity from infection and treatment with antivirals is far better medically than vaccination, in my not-medically-trained-but-self-taught opinion. It also seems that there may be a cross-reaction from T-cell immunity to other coronaviruses, so infection by them may serve to provide T-cell immunity to covid.

          We have good reason to disbelieve the efficacy numbers from vaxx trials because of their flawed design because they used PCR without doing viral culturing when studying viral transmission, so this adds to the uncertainty in the risk/benefit ratio of the vaccines.

          We also have no idea about the long term risk from ADE which may be produced by vaccines, although we have good reason to suspect that ADE may be a problem 2-3 years from now.

          Comparing uncertain vaccine risk to covid risk when the vaccine efficacy number is dodgy is simply silly.

            theasdgamer: According to Dr.Robert Malone, there has so far been no ADE signal with any of the vaccines. He said that ADE is specific to the Dengue fever vaccine. What is worrisome to me is the high level of LNP detected in ovaries. He says this may have epigenetic effects (as DES did for the daughters). Crashing fertility may be what we reap from this.

    The COVID cytokine storm.
    Why does it occur?
    Look upstream. The COVID virus attacks endothelia of the lungs, causing a rush of platelets. The result of platelet activity is a rush of serotonin. Excess serotonin is taken up mainly by the lungs. But the vasculature of the lungs is damaged, effectively shutting down alveoli and opening up bypass shunts. There is now no stopping the surge of systemic serotonin.
    So what?
    Well, serotonin is a precursor of any number oh powerful cytokines.
    Now you’ve got rampant inflammation. It’s what happens. Look up “serotonin syndrome” as related to platelets. Look up cyproheptadine.

    Look up Farid Jalali. Read anything he’s written or videoed in the last year. This is a fellow much like a junior Dr. Kendrick. A person who thinks. A person who cares. . . . A person who is shunned by the Controllers.

          Um, I said nothing about Jalali not mentioning serotonin. I said that Jalali didn’t mention cytokine storm.

    Dr Kendrick, Do you have an assessment of the outlook for those who are now “fully vaccinated” Do you foresee mass deaths over the next few years that will go on the books as “acceptable risks” ? As a 74 year old parent / grandparent, I don’t see that there is any reason for looking forward.

    I don’t understand this part, if someone can explain it. I thought vaccines were made of dead or inert pieces of DNA, and thus work because the immune system learns to recognize/fight the virus? In this case, the immune system recognizes the spike protein. How does the vaccine drive the production of spike proteins?

    We know that vaccines are designed to drive the rapid production of spike proteins that will enter the blood stream specifically to encounter immune cells, in order to create a powerful response that will lead to ‘immunity’ against future SARS-CoV2 infection.

      Lynn: I understand it this way: Both the Pfizer and Moderna use lipid-coated nano-particles of messenger RNA (mRNA). Billions of them with each jab. The intention is that the mRNA enters the cells and induces the DNA in the nucleus to produce the spike protein forever more, till death do they part, which is expressed on the cell surface for the immune cells lurking in the vicinity to recognize and attack. I know it sounds like science fiction. Science it certainly is not. It is an hypothesis certain researchers have been salivating over for more than a decade. It has made nine new billionaires in the U.S., and caused uncounted and uncountable suffering in those of its victims. The AZ and J&J use an adenovirus vector with the intent to cause the same thing.

        Hi Gary,

        Can you confirm the (till death do they part) part?

        My understanding is that the lipid contains both the genetic instructions for the spike and the instructions for the cell to manufacture one spike after which the foreign material is ejected from the cell. It would take a reverse transcription of the RNA to incorporate the spike instructions into the DNA and this has yet to be shown as happening here to the best of my knowledge.

          Doug from Canada: I don’t really know how any of this works, so disregard my comment. In the Dark Horse podcast Richard posted, Dr. Robert Malone talks about this, but I’m a visual learner, so I’m real fuzzy about what happens when the lipid nanoparticle reaches the cell. He does say the spike protein is expressed on the surface of the cell, but how it gets there I’m uncertain of. I highly recommend watching the podcast. It’s long-3+ hours-but riveting.

      Lynn, vaccines in the past are as you correctly described, dead or inert pieces of DNA, viral or bacterial, and these yielded immunity. Comparing that prior technology to the technology in the modified RNA (hence the company name ModeRNA, which by the way never made a vax in its history) would be a big mistake. We should all see a red flag when the WHO changes the definition of Vaccine prior to the roll out of this pseudo-vaccine (to fit the agenda), so that a vax NOW no longer has to provide immunization, it just has to render an antibody response, and no longer has to use all or part of the viral pathogen. This is called moving the goal-posts.
      The recipient of the Modern RNA style vax has cells that now have coding for the output of the enemy Spike protein. What cells? Well, not just the myocytes of the deltoid, I’m afraid. How ’bout endothelial cells or greater alveolar cells? Not good. And lastly, antibody production is not the be all end all of immunity; it’s a mere narrow portion of B cell immunity, and when created from a jab to the deltoid vs. natural entry into the nasopharyngeal tract, it lacks cross-over immunity from cell mediated T cell response which includes dendritic cells, MALT, NK cells, cytotoxic cells, T Helper cells, Interferon, etc etc. That’s how you “create a powerful response that will lead to immunity’, not from a jab.

        New discovery shows human cells can write RNA sequences into DNA
        And, in a newsletter that arrived this morning, Prion was mentioned :-

        “This is what Stephanie Seneff, professor of immunology at MIT, the largest scientific university in the world, points out . According to a recently published article, the side effects of the vaccination are likely to be far more serious than the pandemic itself. With “on the menu”, serious or long-term pathologies such as circulatory problems, degenerative and autoimmune diseases [3] . Not to mention that the virus’s “spike” protein, injected with the vaccine, turns out to be a Prion, the same species of molecule that turns the brain into a sponge in mad cow disease.”
        ————————————— ##
        I don’t know IF the Prion aspect has been verified – IF it has, then…holy-moly. Look to the blood banks. In France, Brits may not be blood donors due to the mad cows’ disease of yesteryear : all Brits are considered as possible carriers of the disease. OK. So, what the hell are they playing at with this mRNA that is known to play havoc with the body, appalling side effects that are being totally down-played ! It aint a vaccine, it is an experimental toxic chemical.

    Love reading your blog and ALL the comments.
    As someone with super high platelets (ET) this is really interesting.
    I have avoided the jab so far. Interestingly, on a patient forum of like patients, a number of them have had the jab quickly followed by significantly lower platelets in subsequent blood tests. Now I am not so sure that is a good thing 😦
    I don’t think our hematologists have a clue either. I asked my MPN expert which one she would recommend for someone at risk of both clots and/or hemorrhaging, and she just said take whatever your given, they’re all fine. Think I’ll wait for the results of the phase III trials to be completed.

    Thank you for keeping us informed.

      Debra, I am also in the same boat as you. V recently diagnosed ET Jak2 +ve, platelets only 520ish and currently only taking aspirin but Haematologist had proposed hydroxycarbamide. I’m v reluctant to start taking the latter given that it will compromise my immune system and I don’t feel that is a good idea at the moment. I had avoided the ‘vaccine’ given all I’d read about the spike protein and the more I read the more reluctant I become. However I now find myself classed as having an ‘underlying health condition’ and hence more vulnerable should I have the misfortune to get COVID. It’s not a position I like being in, but like yourself, I’d rather wait.

            Mike Coker: It is not a “satanic cult” promoting mass vaccination, but a very sophisticated marketing operation by a powerful industry and enabled by governments using funds from their treasuries and nearly all the media. If you research the history of the vaccine-producing companies, with the exception of Moderna, which has never before produced or marketed a product, all of them have routinely been convicted of fraud, bribery, and deceptive marketing, and have paid billions in fines. So, while not “satanic,” it cannot be argued that the executives of these firms have a moral compass. The money they’ve made from these vaccines is absolutely eye-watering. And none of them have any liability exposure. It’s all gravy.

Also BioNTech is similar to Moderna in that they have never made a vaccine or actually any kind of blockbuster drug before. They just teamed up with Pfizer because they needed a partner with experience in the trials and mass production.

    The winning formula has not changed – check out Fauci, HIV, AIDS and AZT. The cure kills its victims with identical pathologies to the disease. The virus was only connected to the disease by association but promoted as evidence by Pharma. It was this process that alerted Kary Mullis to the scam who then called out Fauci as a fraud for the next decade, mostly due to his abuse of the PCR technology to find an AIDS epidemic where none existed.

    My friends’ parents were both hospitalised in Glasgow the day after receiving the vaccine. Her dad developed blood clots on his lungs and what they said was a ruptured ulcer … ie quite severe bleeding in his gut. Your article explains exactly why he had these symptoms and they eventually killed him but not within the usual 28 days post vaccine which would be recorded.

    I think it’s so interesting that the government brought in legislation protecting drug companies from deaths and injuries to patients only last summer. It seems there have been thousands of deaths from the vaccine, and we have no idea what the long term effects will be.

      Aren’t there precedents for such obviously unjust laws being struck down – or at least overriden – in court?

      If a government forces someone to have the “vaccine”, and it kills them. Someone, it seems to me, is most definitely culpable and ought to be punished. Either the manufacturer who sold a dangerous product, or the government that encouraged the sale (and made laws to give the manufacturer impunity). Probably both.

      Surely there will be a court case where a jury, or enlightened judges, find against the wrongdoers regardless of what laws (themselves criminal) are on the statute book?

    Tank you Dr Kendrick for a clear and informative article.

    I’m trying to visualise what happens at the site of the vaccine injection.

    E.g.the Pfizer vaccine comes as a vial of frozen lipid nanoparticles that look like powder. To prepare the injection, they gently agitate the vial, add 1.8 mL of 0.9% saline solution, and gently agitate again, ending with a cloudy emulsion of lipid nanoparticles in a saline carrier solution.

    For each jab they withdraw 0.3 mL of the emulsion and inject it into a muscle. A sphere 8.3 mm in diameter has a volume of 0.3 mL. So within the muscle you end up with a little ball of saline solution 8.7 mm across, under a fair amount of pressure. That ball has to diffuse to… where?

    As the saline ball diffuses it brings the lipid nanoparticles closer to the muscle cells. The nanoparticles pick up bits of protein etc floating around in the intracellular fluid. These proteins surround it like a halo. From the cell’s point of view, it sees a fuzzy ball of protein etc approaching.

    These nanoparticles are really very small, typically less than 100 nm in diameter. A biggish cell like a muscle cell would typically have a diameter of 100 µm, i.e. about 1,000 times bigger than a nanoparticle. Even a small cell like a red blood cell at 7 µm is 70 times bigger than a nanoparticle.

    So the muscle cell has no problem engulfing and swallowing the lipid nanoparticle by a process called endocytosis. The lipid breaks down and releases the mRNA it was carrying, and the mRNA starts doing its [life-saving/dastardly] work.

    But back to the ball of saline slowly diffusing in the muscle… Surely a percentage of the lipid nanoparticles go with the saline and must escape the confines of the muscle and wander about, to be engulfed by cells at random spots around the body, which in turn start manufacturing and spreading spike proteins?

    A hypothesis that is a humongous stretch……So I have past history studying and using anabolic steroids. In doing so, I’ve learned how the body can sense levels of testosterone being too high, and shut off the signal from the brain to the testes to make any more. Also, the brain can be tricked into sending a signal to the testes to produce testosterone by taking a chemical that mimics estrogen but that doesn’t produce all of the estrogenic effects. My point: This cannot be the only feedback system in our body to maintain homeostasis/balance of a given hormone or chemical or for that matter any other kind of function that needs regulating within a certain tolerance the body inherently knows is where it will stay alive being in.

    So, my theory is that these spike proteins break down the blood vessel walls, causing bleeding, which then platelets come in large numbers to try and fix, but then the platelets somehow get confused by our immune system as being the spike protein / intruder, so then the immune system begins to kill off the platelets, and death sometimes results before the platelet level is zero, just low. I did read multiple reports (I think at least 10 before I stopped reading), of people of all ages who died shortly (within 3 weeks) of being Covid 19 vaccinated, who were found to have either EXTREMELY low platelet counts or counts of literally zero when they died. Some of these people were found to have very low platelets about a week before they died, and even when given transfusions, it hardly made any dent at all in their platelet count.

    Either the spike protein itself has some kind of molecular similarity to platelets OR the platelets are extremely susceptible to spike attaching via ACE2 (I don’t know if platelets even have ACE2 receptors or not). But I think it is one scenario or the other. You have two systems working against eachother in their own respective feed back loops. One system somehow senses the breaking down of the blood vessel walls, and sends in large amounts of platelets, then the other system, our immune system, is trying to find out what is making the damage happen and gets the mugshot wrong and decides the platelets are working in cahoots with the spike proteins. The two systems don’t have a very good means of figuring out the mess together, so it ends up bad.

    Kind of off topic a little but…
    My Dad was hospitalized about 10 days after his second Pfizer dose, with “gas in the liver”, which the doctors kept him for two days and his symptoms of severe stomach pain, weakness, nausea, bloating, throwing up and diarrhea eventually cleared up. Doctors had zero idea what caused it. I had never even heard of gas in the liver, then I read about it and one of the two major classes of causes, has a 70%+ mortality rate. I’m glad he is alive, but wonder did somehow the spike proteins end up being made in his liver, where there was some kind of bad immune response?

      See if this helps you. The part of the negative feedback loop you might miss is the the shut off mechanism for the clotting, that is also under attack. So, without anti-thrombin and its vital pathway working in ones favor, you can’t stop or reverse the clot process. And it relates to cytokines elevating during the entire inflammatory process, cytokine storm, yielding more platelets, more clots…that’s the fat kid on the see-saw. The gas in the liver is from propylene Glycol, ingredient the shot, and Yes his hepatocytes and endothelial cells in the liver can be producing spike proteins. Best regards.

    It’s a real dilemma for people with existing heart disease. They tell you that you are at particular risk of death if you get covid. Yet one suspects that it’s… not good… to have vaccine-generated clots if your vascular system is already damaged. Moreover, if you are a heart patient and you die after having the vaccine, the authorities will certainly say “oh well, it was the pre-existing heart disease that did it, not the jab.” Has there been any analysis of people with CVD who got the vaccination?

    Another thing I’ve been thinking about – ordinarily, the safety trial would have to observe the vaccine recipients and the placebo group for two years. But now the EUA exists, I suspect the drug companies will say, “no need to keep doing the trial” and pull the plug. They may even have the temerity to insist that the placebo group deserves vaccination “on ethical grounds” thus polluting the study results.

It was AZ that used the ACWY vaccine as the control, except for the SA trial involving only 2,070 participants of whom, as you say, the trial was “inconclusive”, vaxxspeak for as many in the vaccine group got Covid as the saline group. Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials both used saline. There is an AZ trial underway in the US (who seem to insist on saline, maybe that’s why it’s not approved even for emergency use there yet).

    I noticed in Australia that 210 people have died after the jab (not saying it was that that killed them) compared with 1 person from Wuhan virus in the same period?

    I also noticed that 109 of those people died from Pfizer even though Astra Zeneca was the bulk of the jabs given?

    Calculator from Oxford Univ to estimate the risk of death from COVID, although not for clinical or commercial use of course … https://www.qcovid.org. For a healthy 35 y old male, e.g. my nephew, the estimated mortality risk seems to be <1:110,000. Presumably even lower for a healthy 35-40 y old female? This is miniscule.

    It is surely stark staring mad for a person to take any vaccine if the risk of death from vaccine is higher than the above risk of death from COVID? Coronavirus vaccines also seem to offer more long-term unknowns than the unknowns from COVID. I'll pass for now, thanks.

    Also, if we wanted a 'safe' vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, wouldn't we consider developing a shot of a standard common cold coronavirus, or a blend of them? These viruses are surely related to COVID-19 roughly as cow pox was to smallpox?

Though it will be ‘heavy’ going, I’m pleased to say some are developing enough nonce to know that it is not conveying ‘good news’.

    [My Dad (in his 80’s) gets a bit of jip from his 3 golfing mates about not having had the jab {aside – one of them developed bad rashes on his legs which he denied could have possibly been connected to the jab}. My Dad brought up the subject of blood clots this week and said that they all went silent to his questions – I have no doubt that this latest blog will add to Dad’s ammunition even if he doesn’t get much of the terminology.]

    I’ve been researching the spike protein issue & shedding, including watching & listening to various videos / interviews involving some of speakers mentioned in the comments above (& in the previous blog entry), and typing up notes. I try to avoid getting stuck in an echo chamber by seeking opposite opinions and, as one e.g., I keep up with a ‘blue tick’ Yank Professor who describes himself as ‘viruses, viruses, viruses and vaccines’.

    I remain firmly in the camp (which has been unwavering since I first looked at & studied the Diamond Princess) that Covid-19 is nothing much to be concerned about for anyone who is not old &/or has comorbidities in the same way that nobody was particularly worried if anyone soldiered on coughing and spluttering in the office (aside – pre-Covid a colleague was coughing her guts away in the office and someone piped up ‘hurry up and die’ – I don’t think anyone would dare to cough now).

        I’ve now become a conspiracy theorist and believe this is a Plan-demic. Fuellmich says a whistle-blower told him that COVID-19 was planned, starting in August 2019, because Europe is nearly broke due to its bloated pensions. (Bill Gates held his infamous Event 201 in October 2019, which said the next pandemic would be a coronavirus and lockdowns/social distancing, etc. would be necessary.) Below is a chilling quote from a commenter on Mercola.com that provides another motive for the Great Reset:

        “The following statements, which were made in 1981 by powerful international banker and unapologetic eugenicist, Jacques Attali, are taken from Interviews with Michel Salomon – The Faces of the Future, Seghers edition, which was published in France by Emi Lit when Attali was a senior adviser to French President, Francoise Mitterand:

        “In the future it will be a question of finding a way to reduce the population. We will start with the old, because as soon as it exceeds 60-65 years man lives longer than he produces and costs society dearly, then the weak and then the useless who do nothing for society because there will be more and more of them, and especially the stupid ones. Euthanasia targeting these groups; euthanasia will have to be an essential instrument of our future societies, in all cases. We cannot of course execute people or set up camps. We will get rid of them by making them believe it is for their own good. Too large a population, and for the most part unnecessary, is something economically too expensive. Socially, it is also much better for the human machine to come to an abrupt halt rather than gradually deteriorating. We won’t be able to run intelligence tests on millions and millions of people, you can imagine! We will find something or cause it, a pandemic that targets certain people, a real economic crisis or not, a virus that will affect the old or the fat, it doesn’t matter, the weak will succumb to it, the fearful and the stupid will believe it and ask to be treated. We will have taken care to have planned the treatment, a treatment that will be the solution. The selection of idiots will thus be done on its own: they will go to the slaughterhouse on their own.”

    The common cold is a virally related syndrome and has been associated with over 100 different viruses, including Human Coronavirus and Rhinovirus. Common symptoms include throat discomfort , followed by sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, coughing and decreased energy level. Fever is uncommon with colds, except in young children.

    FINALLY – we will now have a vaccine for the common cold … because we now know how to vaccinate against the coronavirus.

    This has been a long time coming.

      Very amusing, Eddy! (Just in case anyone takes your comment seriously).

      I am reminded of the old story about German school teacher who was known for his sarcasm. There was a boy in his class who was usually far behind in comprehension, and felt humiliated by never knowing the answers to questions the teacher asked. Sometimes, when he saw a lot of hands go up, he too would put up his hand to make it appear that he was in the know. If called upon, as a last resort he would say that he had known the answer, but had forgotten it.

      One day, the teacher asked, “My children, who can tell me the fundamental nature of electricity?” Thinking that sounded pretty straightforward, little Hans’s hand shot up – before he noticed that he was completely alone.

      Turning to Hans, the teacher asked kindly, “Well Hans, please explain to us the fundamental nature of electricity”.

      Hans, following his usual escape route, replied “I am very sorry, mein Herr; I did know the answer – but I have forgotten”.

      Turning dramatically to the class, the teacher said, “Lament, my children, weep and tear your garments! Only two people have ever known the fundamental nature of electricity: the Herr Gott and this child – and he has forgotten!”

    Reply
      1. AhNotepad

        If the vitamin C is running out particularly after vaccination, that indicates something in the “vaccine” has to be neutralised. Vitamin C is used to get rid of any toxin, and the reserves must be kept up to deal with them. This means supplements will be needed as food alone will not give enough. Read “Curing the Incurable” by Tom Levy.

        I am not a doctor and I have no medical or scientific qualification. But this is what I have learned by reading; your mileage may vary.

        According to Linus Pauling, there is no danger in any dose of Vitamin C – no matter how big. There are practical difficulties, the most obvious and unpleasant of which is loose bowels. (And they can be REALLY loose, as in “never leave your house”).

        With most healthy people, Pauling’s recommended daily dose of 6 grams or so will not cause loose bowels. (It is better to take it in two or more doses – e.g. morning and evening – with food). He calculated 6 grams by finding out how much Vitamin C other animals (which can still make it for themselves) synthesize, and adjusting for weight.

        As the dose is increased to 10 or 20 grams, many healthy people will start to feel the consequences and will back off sharpish.

        When a person is extremely ill, however, vast doses of as much as 100 gram/day have been tolerated without causing loose bowels or other side effects. It seems that sickness or other stress rapidly depletes Vitamin C, so the body will absorb all you can give it.

        Above 10-20 grams/day, however, it can’t be adequately absorbed by mouth, so it’s better for a doctor to inject it or administer it by drip if the patient is hospitalised.

        Reply
        1. Tarl

          One often sees “expert” guidance to the effect that after taking more than one gram of vitamin C per day, absorption falls off and the unabsorbed excess is excreted in the urine. Does the Pauling protocol take into account that not all of the 5g you take after the first gram will be absorbed?

          Reply
          1. Prudence Kitten

            Very sorry not to have replied sooner, Tarl. The “expert” guidance to which you refer looks like standard operating procedure used to fend off anything new or different – or, especially, unprofitable.

            As they say, “absence of evidence is not evidence of absence”. It seems to be quite true that excess Vitamin C is excreted in the urine. But that raises the question of what is “excess”. The establishment assumes, in the case of unprofitable or free remedies, that there is no benefit unless it has been formally demonstrated and written up in peer-reviewed papers.

            But the advocates of 6g daily doses suggest that the RDA (about 60 mg) is actually just the amount necessary to stave off unmistakeable signs of scurvy! As scurvy is the final stage of decay before death, it seems possible that larger amounts might be a good precaution. Just look at all the roles that Vitamin C plays: a precursor of collagen – the most abundant protein in the body, making up about one third of the total – an important antioxidant, and an indispensable resource for the immune system.

            And there is Pauling’s argument: that almost all other animals make their own Vitamin C, at the rate of about 6g/day for a typical adult human. He even asked around zoos, and found that they gave their apes far more Vitamin C than the RDA!

            Pauling might have been wrong, but I am inclined to give a double Nobel Prize winner the benefit of the doubt.

            Oh – as for the “expensive urine”, I get ascorbic acid for about £17/kg, which lasts me about 100 days. A cost of about 17p/day. What’s more, there is some evidence that as the Vitamin C goes through your urinary tract, it does a useful service by killing bacteria and other nasties that may be lurking there.

            Where else would you get such a great deal? 😎

    I grew up with vasculitides. I’m sure I have never actually uttered the word in my life.
    Great post, and writings generally. Thanks Malcolm.

    For 40 years I have been injecting people in muscles with antibiotics, opiates and anti-inflammatories, antipsychotics and sedatives, B12, vitamin K, hormones, steroids, ketamine, adrenaline – and yes, vaccines – precisely because we know the injection goes everywhere the blood goes, and often quickly. How stupid do they think we are, to suppose the co-vaxes would confine themselves to shoulder base? About as stupid as believing the mRNA will never end up in the DNA? Anyone for integrase, reverse transcriptase, transfection, aeons of viral insertions?

    The vioxx “debacle” was laughable because a quick look at essential fat pathways and you see that if you block COX2 you will make more aggressive leucotrienes, especially B4, which inflames arteries. Undergrad stuff, and the Merck chemists would have known. I’m still surprised that celebrex si still around; maybe an undergrad can tell me why…

    Similarly I once went to a lavish Glaxo-sponsored dinner for rosaglitazone, where the turncoat GP-turned-“medical director” in my little country mentioned the side effect of weight gain, from a drug s’posed to increase insulin sensitivity. I challenged him, in front of his bad-tempered handlers and numerous other GPs just wanting to get to desert, and goaded him to produce a slide that was supposed to blind us with pathway science, but which told me if you inhibit PPARs you can expect trouble. Sure enough, after a few years GSK settled for around 1300 suits following heart attacks, some fatal.

    Many thanks for this post.

    I’m struggling with it a little and have a few questions: –

    1) How does the body remove an mRNA vaccine as it wouldn’t be there naturally?
    2) Do the vaccines cause all cells to produce the spike protein?
    3) How can the vaccine not enter the bloodstream?
    4) Do the cells producing the spike protein get damaged during the process?
    5) Is the functioning of cells producing the spike protein affected in any other way?
    6) What stops the process of spike protein formation?

    If the immune system does create additonal clotting after vaccination would we start to see a rise in deaths from cardiovascular disease or strokes and would these deaths be recorded as COVID if the person tested positive prior to death?

    Reply
    1. Chad

      1. Your body naturally produces mRNA for creating proteins. So, the mRNA from the vaccine gets processed by cells to produce the spike protein.
      2. Only the cells that have taken in the mRNA.
      3. It possibly could.
      4. They are ultimately destroyed by the immune system as they appear to be infected.
      5. Technically no, but they will by destroyed.
      6. When the cells are done processing the mRNA from the vaccine.

      Unless one believes that the vaccines are designed for something other than dealing with sars/covid, a person may react to the vaccine in a similar fashion to how they would have reacted to the actual virus, other than the vaccine gets processed and ends whereas the virus will replicate for much longer.

      If you believe the virus is not a threat, then the vaccine should be less so, since the vaccine is a subset of the virus.

      Reply
      1. Eggs ‘n beer

        No. Totally wrong. The vaccine is a greater threat than the virus, because your innate immune system is bypassed by the vaccination process. A healthy immune system is providing a response as soon as the virus touches your skin or mucous membranes through the Langerhans cells. Long before the virus enters the bloodstream. Injecting the vaccine directly into the muscle, and hence directly into the bloodstream (unless there are any muscles totally devoid of a blood supply, lol), defies logic.

        Reply
      2. AhNotepad

        The virus goes in through the airways in general, and meets several immune system gatekeepers. The inoculation bypasses some of the gatekeepers, so you cannot say the innoculation is less of a risk than the virus.

    Thank you for another informative article. Can I ask a question of you or anyone that might have an insight about one part I don’t understand- it seems to suggest the spike protein is designed to enter the bloodstream rather than stay adhered to the surface of the cell.

    ‘We know that vaccines are designed to drive the rapid production of spike proteins that will enter the blood stream specifically to encounter immune cells, in order to create a powerful response that will lead to ‘immunity’ against future SARS-CoV2 infection’.

            No, the moon landings and peak oil are not relevant to covid.

            If you want to persuade people that covid is not harmful enough to justify all the measures taken against it (masks, lockdowns, etc.) and you want to persuade people that covid vaccines are dangerous and unnecessary, then talking about peak oil and the moon landing hoax is NOT the way to do it. Firstly, it is not necessary. The discussion of the cost / benefit of fighting covid nd of the vaccines stand on their own. There is no need to link them to what are widely regarded as whackjob conspiracy theories. If you attempt to make people swallow two other questionable theories in order to accept the third, then people are going to dismiss everything you say.

            Maybe you don’t care about persuading people. Not sure if Dr Kendrick does.

          4. Fast Eddy

            If one can expose the fake moon landings then a CovIDIOT might think hmmmm…. if ‘they’ lied about that … maybe they are lying about covid and the vaccines… maybe I should reconsider that appointment to have my children vaccinated… uh… injected… it’s too late for me though…

            As for peak oil… that is important because if one acknowledges that as fact (which it is)… then one gets to die knowing covid and the injections were foisted on us for a good reason… not everyone wants to leave this world in a state of ignorance. If I have epiphanized (is that a word?) a few people by explaining the Covid Big Picture …. then I feel that I have made a worthy contribution to mankind.

            Let’s face it – at the end of the day this is all summed up in my various emails to the PR Team at Medsafe NZ with the subject line ‘I know what you are doing’….

            Feel free to keep up the futile banter urging people to wake up .. to not take the injection … and all that jazz…. while you are at it why don’t you go down to the seaside and scream at the ocean to stop making waves.

            Fast Eddy, I think the only person being fooled is you. The evidence for a hoax is so slender, I doubt one person in a hundred seriously believes in it. Some of it is laughable. Someone posted a photo here of the Eagle moon lander with a circle drawn on it and said, see, no rocket exhaust crater in the circle. The circle was drawn in the WRONG PLACE. The great exposer of hoaxes didn’t even understand perspective.

            How do you explain how the Soviets, the USA’s great rivals who had beaten them in landing the first rover on the moon and returning the first lunar samples to Earth, and certainly had the technology to detect if the moon landings were faked, didn’t expose the fake? It would have been a great propaganda victory for them.

            How to explain that astronomers all over the world were bouncing lasers off the reflector that Armstrong left on the moon, if he didn’t actually go there? Not to mention, how do you explain the silence and complicity of the three astronauts and literally hundreds of others who had to be in on the hoax?

            Your claims are effectively an insult to the integrity of many fine, brave, hard-working and accomplished people.

            Anyway, I echo others here and ask that you stick to medical matters on this website. With your moon landing theories you are preaching to the uninterested.

      There is an ingrained mentality in many that any side effects will manifest before the vaccine syringe has been fully injected. This in spite of the delay of drugs like thalidomide and DES which earned the label time bombs. It is probable that any significant side effects from COVID vaccines will not manifest for months or even years, When they finally do manifest they will be labelled as ‘unrelated’. Vaccine makers aren’t stupid. They are cunning and deceitful as is the CDC which is in reality the Center for Deception and Coverups.

        That graph can be extended outside London because similar patterns have been witnessed elsewhere and ONS statistics for the UK show this comparison between the time we were told there was a pandemic March-May 2020 and the initial vaccine rollout as it has been called:

        COVID-19 deaths 2 June 2021

        March 20 – May 20 38,216
        Dec 20 – Feb 21 63,655

        Strangely we hear nothing anymore about Covid-19 deaths on MSM.

        What some of us think is that now it has been established (at least to the vaccine manufacturers that their products can be used to reduce population) attenuated batches or placebos are now being administered to get the populace “vaccine-happy”. Then they can give people the real shot just when they want. And to whom they want. This experiment is sinister.

      ‘ there would be an obvious spike in the national death rate from vaccinating 75% of the population. That hasn’t happened. ”

      Has 75% of the population been vaccinated with both doses – that would be near 50 million?

      EUROMOMO is making comparisons, not reporting actual overall mortality numbers. People haven’t stopped dying of other things. There is always a decline in all-cause mortality after the Winter ‘flu season, if you look at other years you will see this. A lot of elderly people who ‘should’ be dying now, died last March/April and during the Winter CoVid season.

      However mortality in the age groups who have been vaccinated should be checked, and mortality from diseases which might be associated with vaccination compared with other periods. All-cause mortality gives no indication as to what people died from. In fact if you look at all cause mortality, age and population adjusted, you would not be able to pick out CoVid.

      Dear Dr JG,

      First I am not a doctor. Second I realise this question was not addressed to me. But I think it’s a good question.

      My understanding is that a D-dimer test could be sampled before and 7 days after vaccination to determine whether D-dimer levels increase post-vaccination. Sucharit Bhakdi is pushing for GPs who are concerned about patients being vaccinated to perform these tests. Apparently patients have been exhibiting high levels of D-dimer post-vaccination. He, and other specialists, consider that the tests would provide evidence whether the vaccines are safe or not, or indeed whether they are responsible for the increase in Covid-19 cases found in the early months of the vaccination programme.

      It is known that raised levels of D-dImer are present in Covid-19 patients.

      “Conclusions

      D-dimer is commonly elevated in patients with COVID-19. D-dimer levels correlate with disease severity and are a reliable prognostic marker for in-hospital mortality in patients admitted for COVID-19.”

    Well they jolly well should automatically record it as a POSSIBLE event at least!

    As I have previously said, my 97 year old mother had a stroke 2 days after her second AstraZeneca and died 2 weeks later from the stroke. Yes, she would have had the heart and blood vessels of a 97 year old woman but she’d never had a stroke before. So rather suspicious timing for it. Well her resulting death was not such a disaster because she’d had such a ghastly Covid year in her care home. No visitors, all carers in masks and quite inaudible to someone with the severe hearing and eyesight problems my mother had. She even had a bout of depression which she’d never ever had before. She loved company and had been used to it.

    My accusation is of abuse, negligence and possible manslaughter. Hopefully not murder but with all the lies we are being told I can’t even completely rule that out. And I consider myself rational!

    Dr John Campbell thinks these happen because some injections go into the blood vessels rather than the deltoid muscles. This could be prevented if the vaccinators aspirated before injecting like they do in Denmark? BTW I’m looking forward to your new book

      I think this is largely a myth. Skeletal muscles have a good blood supply as they need plenty of oxygen to do the work they do, in the case of the deltoid, moving the upper arm upwards and outwards at the shoulder. Aspirating the syringe, may warn the person injecting that the needle is in too large a vessel and therefore the substance given will enter the circulation too quickly. But the contents of the syringe will still enter the circulation in a matter of minutes instead of seconds. Possibly, there may be undissolved particles present which are too large to pass through the walls of the small blood vessels in the muscle, or there is a drug or toxin present which reduces the blood supply to the muscle by contracting the arteriole walls to reduce their radius, and so reduces the blood flow back into the general circulation.

    I have Protein C deficiency. I take Warfarin, long term, as an anti-coagulant. My left lung and right leg are damaged by clots. I have had DVT’s and bleeds at various times since I was 18. I am now 43. I have many concerns of being forced into taking a vaccine and it being one of the last things I do. When the time comes for me to take a vaccine, is there anything I should look for or ask my GP? I doubt I will be able to ‘blindly’ resist indefinitely and am confident that this clotting aspect is my way out of a vaccine as it will not be argued against by most people I meet. I am looking for a concrete argument to use in my defence against vaccination – is there any further information, widely shared or otherwise, that I may be able to access regarding the clotting aspect of the vaccines? Thanks. And, Dr Kendrick, thanks to you for many enlightening, humorous and easy to read articles. Cheers

    ‘What do we know about COVID19? First, it can only enter cells that have a receptor known as the angiotensin II receptor (ACE2 receptor).’

    Sorensen, Dalgleish and Susrud, write that at least three different receptors for SARS-CoV2 exist: ACE2, DPP4, APN and a fourth, as yet uncharacterised mechanism.

    I’m not reviewing either their paper or your article here, just highlighting that there seems to be ongoing discussion in this arena.

      Thanks for this explanation, which does help clarify the position.

      I do have one query. You write:

      “Since the introduction of these vaccines there have been many instances of clotting – manifest as thrombosis, stroke or heart-attack – as well as of death and other severe illnesses.”

      But is there any unequivocal statistical evidence that these conditions have actually been increasing? Could one draw a graph which would show a correlation between Covid vaccine coverage and these diseases?

    Another great article helping us to construct a coherent view out of masses of complicated details flying around. Very educational.

        Following Mike Yeadon, those passing on the infection will need sufficient viral load, and thus are likely to show symptoms. If that’s the case, avoid those people. If the jabbed are likely to be dead within thee next couple of years, then the infection risk will decrease.

          “With the hottest strains, every unvaccinated bird dies within 10 days. There is no human virus that is that hot. Ebola, for example, doesn’t kill everything in 10 days.”

          In fact, rather than stop fowl from spreading the virus, the vaccine allows the disease to spread faster and longer than it normally would, a new study finds. The scientists now believe that this vaccine has helped this chicken virus become uniquely virulent. (Note: it only harms fowl). The study was published on Monday in the journal PLOS Biology.

    So, some thoughts for you to consider…ACE2 is not the only receptor the virus attaches to, the receptor cd147 in the epithelial lining is where the vascular damage is occuring. Poor redox on a cellular level is the root problem. Increasing intake of the molecules melatonin and ascorbic acid improves redox. The question that never seems to be asked is why is this devastating virus happening right now? Its possible thst changes in our environment, with the tremendous increase in the use of electronic devices, has caused a depletion of ascorbic acid and melatonin leading to cellular dysfunction. If this intrigues you at all I suggest you follow Doris Loh. I think you would find her to be fascinating. She is a medical researcher. All of her papers are based on peer reviewed research. I admit I am biased towards Doris…both my wife and I had significant bouts with covid, when the medical community failed us miserably with the lack of any coherent therapeutics, she literally saved our lives.

    What happened in between?

    The horse has bolted from the stables
    Lunatics have taken over the farm
    Caretakers have taken over the main house

    I know this isn’t relevant to Dr K’s original post, but it’s something that’s still unexplained. I’ve been following “Not on the Beeb” where Mark Playne has been investigating the magnetic injection sites that many people seem to have following one of the mRNA injections. Initially I was very sceptical of it all, but having seen his own “experiments” on a friend’s mother, and also Del Bigtree’s video where they went around a beach in the US to see who’s injection site was “magnetic”, I can’t help but think that there’s something odd going on. It appears that there’s a positive magnetic polarity at the site as the magnet tries to flip over if the wrong polarity is presented to the skin.

    Bigtree’s video – https://thehighwire.com/videos/the-covid-vaccine-magnet-challenge/

    Here’s a new compilation from Mark Playne’s YouTube channel. The very first example is quite compelling as the magnet is clearly being pulled towards the skin at a certain point. But the magnetism is also clearly under the skin as people are able to attach keys, cutlery – even mobile phones. What is going on?

    Compilation – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrntl7VZZ2g

    There are several recent videos on the “Not on the Beeb” YouTube channel here – I’m just about to watch them, but it’s seriously weird:

          Oh my, where to start? As Martin pointed out, those videos are easy to fake. There have been generations of illusionists, spoon benders, dowsers, you name it.

          Secondly, the link provided by Dr. John is about a proposed novel delivery technique for DNA (not RNA or mRNA) vaccines. Those ferromagnetic particles are not on the list of ingredients of any of the current vaccines. Also, there are no ferromagnetic particles that would form a suspension that would appear clear, certainly not in the concentration needed to attract a magnet.

          If you still aren’t conviced, buy a strong neodym magnet and ask your doctor or nurse if you may hold it to a vial (which contains 5 to 10 shots, depending on the vaccine). If it is not attracted by the vial, how can a fraction of that dose dispersed in a muscle attract a magnet later?

          I can’t believe any of you believe this story. It really takes the cake!

            Thank you, Malcolm 🙂

            I just noticed I was not entirely clear about the liquid being clear. So just to be clear(er): any known ferromagnetic particles suspended in a water based liquid at concentrations that are more than homeopathic will result in the liquid being muddy, gray to black, maybe with a brown or blue tinge, so anything but colorles and translucid.

          2. Martin Back

            Exactly. The vaccine in the vial is still at full strength instead of being dispersed in the muscle. The magnetic effect should be even stronger. Not that I expect any magnetic effect to be detected by a properly-controlled experiment.

            I too was completely of the opinion that the “magnet” phenomenon was a hoax, yet the people who’ve gone around trying on random people in public (such as the HighWire one and Dr T – who is a real medical NHS doctor) are hardly likely to be trying to fake anything. So now I do believe that some people have somehow developed a slight positive magnetic “pole” usually around the injection site – but have no idea how on earth it can have happened. My son-in-law who had the Pfizer vaccine appears not to have any signs of any “magnetic attraction” (although clearly my daughter found that he did, lol!)

            I know there are some “fake” videos out there, but Mark Playne and Del Bigtree wouldn’t risk losing their reputations by trickery.

            Blood contains “iron” – might that be part of the explanation? Some reaction with the ingredients injected?

          14. Eric

            @ anglosvizzera: The whole body contains about 3 g of iron, more than half of which is stored in the bones and other places. Roundabout 1 – 1.2 g circulate in red blood cells. Oxygenated haemoglobin is diamagnetic, i.e. will not be attracted by a magnet. I don’t think you could afford to attract a lot of blood cells to the injection site and reduce (de-oxydize) them without noticing other side effects.

            Del Bigtree of CO2 below mask fame? Does he still have a reputation to lose?

            @ Fast Eddy:

            You prove my point. The comment section has been largely taken over by true believers who do not like to be challenged in their views and can be outright hostile.

          15. Eric

            There was another of my comments that I was referring to but apparently it got eaten. So I’ll try to repost as best I can.

            @ Martin: Apparently lightweight refrigerator magnets will stick to hairless skin. Tried that but either ours are too heavy or I should be using lotion 🙂

            @ Mike: I don’t think Malcolm has been posting conspiracy theories, ever. Hypotheses outside of the mainstream with sound reasoning, yes. This is what I appreciate about this blog. I had found out that the cholesterol heart hypothesis was mumbo jumbo on my own long before the internet was a fount of knowlegde or Malcolm had started posting, but I have been on this blog for a long timeand have had a few other of my previous beliefs shattered here. When I see a concept that challenges what I thought I knew and the argument makes sense, I try to follow up with a few searches and maybe adopt the idea as sustainable or maybe even accept it as truth. That UV-B is not what we should be avoiding was one thing I picked up here.

            The comment section is another story. Malcolm has always been very liberal in what he allows. Comments running into the 100s and being hard to keep track of were not unusual, but with the exception of the odd argument about (non-Covid) vaccinations or grounding, it didn’t use to be overrun by conspiracy theorists. That only came with Covid. Strangely, many of the new and some of the old members will cling to their beliefs and be outright hostile to anyone who challenges them. These days, I will read Malcolms blog articles but mostly not wade into the comment section as it is too time consuming but in this case I did and I thought as a physicist, I knew a thing or two about magnetism.

            @ Malcolm: When Trump was pushing the lab leak theory, he actually harmed it. Nicolas Wade is an accomplished (bio-)science journalist. He’s been at the center of some controversies, but I think he adheres to the great British tradition that you can debate almost anything when you argue well. Sometimes I think he does it for the intellectual excercise 🙂

            Anyway, this article
            https://nicholaswade.medium.com/origin-of-covid-following-the-clues-6f03564c038
            is extremely well laid out. I know too little about genetic manipulation of viruses to vouch for his argument there.

            What gives me pause is that Drosten, who “discovered” the SARS1 virus and came up with the first test for SARS2, and who I think is a very humble and honest man, is still on board with the fur farm theory. His argument is something that Wade does not mention at all. If you want to manipulate an RNA virus, you first need to build a DNA model of it which takes more than a year. A DNA model for SARS1 exists, so for gain of function experiments, one would have used that model instead of starting from scratch with the 2012 Yunnan cave virus. I think that if there were other ways of achieving this, Drosten would know about it.

            Anyway, here’s a recent interview to a Swiss online magazine. Since Deepl or google translate work quite well these days, I won’t translate:

            I too found the Nicholas Wade article plausible and convincing. THe problem with it is that the Chinese are understandably very touchy about anything looking like foreign interference or criticism of their methods. So we shall probably never know.
            As for your remarks about comments during the Covid crisis, we have seen a whole gang of new commenters, probably driven here by restrictions elsewhere. Malcolm is very liberal in his moderation, and protective about free speech, but wading through and eliminating the crap is very very time consuming. One poster seems to account for 50% of the comments.

          17. Eric

            @ Mike: Has anybody praised Hitler or posted other really vile stuff? Even if the approval guidelines are liberal, I don’t think that would have slipped past. The worst I have seen is praise of Trump (which is pretty vile in my book).

            @ Fast Eddy: I stopped at the first paragraph of your link. I know it has become kind of a meme among conspiracy theorists to rail at the sociopaths in power, but I think they don’t even understand the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath. A sociopath craves connection to other people and has some empathy but cannot control his impulses so he will never be a functioning member of society let alone get elected into office (well, maybe in America…). A psychopath lacks empathy but understands the rules, is cunning and can deceive people. Getting elected into office takes extraordinary dedication, a desire for reconition or some psychopathic traits.

            @ anglosvizzera: I watched the video you linked above where they try sticking magnets to people’s arms. First of all, who is DrT? Is she verifiably a physician with the NHS?

            Well, here’s DrE’s experiment. Today, after a hot and rainy night and on what is now a hot and humid day and about four hours after taking a shower and in my still somewhat cool kitchen, I tried various magnets from the frigde, some with Nd magnets and some with the traditional dark gray ferrite kind. None of them would stick, but then I haven’t been vaccinated. I then noticed that they were a little dusty and picked a rather thin one with a large diameter because it had the lightest weight per area. It had a ferrite magnet, while the other side was only thin chrome plated sheet of metal like a button to pin to your lapel. After washing and drying it with a towel, I also wiped across my arm to make sure there wasn’t any dust clinging there. The button stuck in all kinds of positions, even vertically. The small sheen of moisture even after drying with a towel must have been enough. When I repeated the test half an hour later, it wouldn’t stick. I am pretty sure if I were to take a brief walk outside, it would.

            Back to the video, that was taken on a sunny and probably humid day. Many people would have used sunscreen, and those who didn’t might still have been covered by a sheen of perspiration. Notice also that the mostly applied the magnet to the very top of the arm which seems awfully high for an injection point but is the position where the surface of the arm is not fully vertical even if the arm is. Notice also they never showed the same test on the other arm.

            The thing about the bolt is curious. For it to stick magnetically, it would have to be magnetized by whatever is in the arm, so you would need to get enough reduced haemoglobin in one place and you would also need to make sure all these mini magnets are aligned in the same direction which requires a magnet that isn’t there in that kind of setup. It is much easier to assume the bolt was sticking due to moisture, too.

            Last not least, if there was magnetic mateiral in the arm, it should deform the surface of the skin when a strong magnet comes close, long before it touches the skin. It should be easy to capture that on video if the effect existed at all and was so strong as they said even with a small and weak magnet.

          26. anglosvizzera

            From some notes I took from another video, Dr T’s credentials were described by herself: she went to medical school in the “very, very early ’90s’, did various hospital jobs including A&E and ENT, did an “extra” in Anatomy and taught anatomy to medical students as that was her special interest, then she became a GP for many years, then taught medical students more generally for about 10 years.

            As for the magnet “sticking” due to sunscreen etc, presumably it would stick everywhere rather than just on the injection site. On some videos I’ve seen they did try both arms and they did try to get the arm as vertical as possible before the weight of the magnet made it fall off. Not all people had their injections as high up as others, so they were more vertical to start off with. Not all videos are of people who are in a hot, outdoor environment either.

            The other thing was that on one of Mark Playne’s earlier videos, and in others I’ve seen, the magnets would only “stick” one way round and “flipped” over as they were passed over the area if they were the wrong way up. He checked the polarity of the magnets and they only stuck if the one side was against the skin, but not the other – and it was always the same side. That would imply that there is an opposing force coming from that part of the arm and therefore that explains why an unmagnetised piece of ferrous metal would also stick.

            Finally, of course the magnetic pull is fairly weak and therfore unlikely to be to do with haemoglobin. But many (not all) people say they can feel a kind of “pull” inside their arm when the magnet is nearing the area in question.

            I’ve watched many of these videos, not just random ones shared by any Tom, Dick or Harry, but by people actually trying to get to the bottom of the phenomenon.

            Hello AngloS
            My wife had second AZ yesterday.
            Just tried a lightweight Magnet
            It fell to the ground.
            Is it a matter of faith?
            Not too worried tho since we will both be keeling over soon

          28. anglosvizzera

            Two observations. Apparently you have to use a neodymium magnet and secondly the phenomenon doesn’t affect everyone. In Del Bigtree’s random public “trial”, I think it was about a third of the people they tested that were “magnetic”!

          29. anglosvizzera

            Gary, the “phenomenon” only appears to work with the mRNA vaccines, so the AstraZeneca one won’t have the same effect, if it were going to.

          30. Gary Ogden

            anglosvizzera: In any case, this is nothing more than a distraction which sheds no light on anything.

          31. anglosvizzera

            (apologies if this appears twice, it didn’t seem to post the first time.)

            Re the magnetic phenomenon: According to Dr Jane Ruby (“international health economist with over 20 years pharmaceutical research experience and medical expert”) – the mRNA vaccines use a process called “magnetofection” using chemicals to produce magnetic fields to force the mRNA more efficiently into cells. She also talks about SPIONS (Supra Magnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles) in the mRNA vaccines (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24715289/):

            Video interview here – https://www.bitchute.com/video/OmpL3GdVFyNY/

            Is this true?

          32. anglosvizzera

            I appreciate your view and, as I have stated previously, I thought it was a crazy hoax. But there do seem to be some people who are affected. I don’t suppose you have time to watch the videos I’ve shared, but there are some instances where there does seem to be something inexplicable going on in videos that I consider to be made by reputable people.

            Whatever, I suppose we will get an explanation in time, if the phenomenon turns out to be more than just an illusion.

            Ingredients of BioNTech / Pfizer vaccine – nothing magnetic or supermagnetic at all:

            https://www.fda.gov/media/144414/download#:~:text=The%20Pfizer%2DBioNTech%20COVID%2D19%20Vaccine%20includes%20the%20following%20ingredients,)%2C%20potassium%20chloride%2C%20monobasic%20potassium

            WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE?
            The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine includes the following ingredients: mRNA,
            lipids ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 2
            [(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-
            phosphocholine, and cholesterol), potassium chloride, monobasic potassium
            phosphate, sodium chloride, dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and sucrose.

            As I said, on my own unvaccinated and unlotioned / unsunscreened arms not magnet would stick until I had washed and towelled off one area after which a button type magnet would stick in that area with ease. I suggest you try this yourself.

          34. anglosvizzera

            Clearly if there were ingredients to create “magnetofection”, as stated in the video interview with Dr Jane Ruby that I shared earlier, they are undisclosed, which is surely something unlawful in itself?

            And it seems you personally found that the magnet DID stick to your injection site but not elsewhere? In which case what on earth is going on?

            Here’s an article in Nature about magnetofection in the context of delivering “gene therapy” which, we are told, these mRNA vaccines are:

            https://www.nature.com/articles/3301624

          35. anglosvizzera

            CORRECTION – Eric, I see you are unvaccinated – in which case the magnet would stick to any part of your body after washing and drying, yes? So how do you explain how these nyodimium magnets only stick to the vaccine site and also only the right way up?

          36. Martin Back

            My fridge magnet stuck to my arm if I licked the magnet first.

            @ anglosvizzera:

            Yes, I am unvaccinated and I could get a lightweight ferrite magnet to stick anywhere if a sheen of moisture was involved.

            Thank you for providing the link to the nature paper. I can assure you that the presence of undeclared iron oxide particles, even if unlawful, would be very hard to hide and easy to prove (does not form a clear solution, would be magnetic, …). Also, to achieve the gene manipulation according to the paper, you would need to apply a strong magnetic field – something that is not part of the vaccination protocol.

            Suppose they had really achieved to traffic those nanoparticles into an approxmately strawberry sized lump inside someones arm and somehow activated the gene transfer by holding a strong magnet to this person’s arm, why would these stay aligned for days?

            Remember science kits for children? You can magnetize a piece of mild steel with an external magnet so as long as the magnet is attached to one end, it will attract paper clips on its other end. As soon as the magnet is removed, the steel rod loses most or all of its magnetization. This is because the individual magnets inside the steel vibrate with Brownian motion and will lose alignment once the external field is removed. They start to point in all directions, cancelling each other’s fields. Only when you use special ferrites instead of steel and press a high concentration of them into a magnet will they keep each other in line after the aligning field is removed. Nanoparticles dispersed in tissue are week magnets in a low concentration. They will hold on to a magnetization even less than a mild steel rod.

            Now let’s take a step back. Malcolm, Martin and I have pointed out that the whole premise is unscientific and highly unlikely, yet you cling to what those videos try to make you believe.

            I can assure you that once I have my BioNTech shot, I will repeat the experiment and report to you truthfully — if the vaccine will allow me to remember that is 🙂

            There are some ferromagnetic organic compounds that have been developed that are only stable at low temperatures. And, coincidentally, the vaxxes have to be stored at very low temps.

            I didn’t make that connection until just now. I don’t know about the colors of those ferromagnetic organic compounds, tho.

            Looks like ferromagnetic organic compounds which are stable at room temp have been produced.

            @ theasdgamer

            The low temperature storage was purportedly because of the instability of the lipid shells, and the requirement has been somewhat relaxed as more field experience was gained.

            I think we can agree that your ferromagnetic organic compounds are not on the list of ingredients and would be easily detected – if not by color then by magnetism or if all else fails, XRF or mass spectrography.

            And even if they had managed to smuggle them into the vials and nobody’s been curious enough to run a vial through a scanner (coming to think of it, I may need to talk to our on site physician), we are still lacking the strong localized magnetic field after application.

            I suggest we let this red herring dive back into the ocean…

    Christophe Rocancourt, the international con artist who plied his trade in Whistler in 2001, stated in a Vancouver Sun interview that he wouldn’t be able to lie to people if they weren’t willing to believe his lies implying that those who choose to believe his lies are THE problem. He is merely the lier. I concur.

    It’s the willingness of the masses to believe almost anything without question if it serves to entertain them (which Rocancourt excelled at) that is THE problem. What is portrayed as the news today is in reality a scripted sales pitch with actors posing as news reporters. Thus Global News is owned by Corus Entertainment.

    In what amounts to a relentless campaign of propaganda the same 15 minute news segment plays over and over again through a 2 or 3 hour newscast in what amounts to sell, sell, sell and sell some more. The script uses words to imprint the desired message on the subconscious of the intended target; fear, death, kill, save, only chance, only hope for survival, care ad nauseam. The reason it works is that the news is scripted to come across as all about issues that affect YOU, the viewer. The subliminal message is “We really care about YOU. We want to protect YOU. The whole world is working hard to make YOUR life better.

    Towards this end, we have Justin Trudeau wringing his hands while he recounts how he is pleading with the makers of vaccines to deliver the promised 500 million doses that he needs to protect Canadians. The fact that the population of Canada is less that 50 million doesn’t register with most viewers because they are being entertained and entertainment mesmerizes.

    For years I have witnessed the morphing of the news into entertainment scripted to sell. Now the book, Manufacturing Consent, confirms and expands on what I am seeing. We can choose to read Manufacturing Consent, and be jolted back to consciousness and face reality. Or we can choose to be entertained and confirm what Rocancourt alluded to; WE are THE problem.

    So after connecting dots, what is one to do, what are we to do as society?
    What I see here in the comment section is a stampede of told you so, happy go lucky and stay away fromt the stuff.

    The virus has been remarkably well-adapted and hence efficient and vicioius from the get go. I tend to say Nicolas Wade might have a point in that it may very well have resulted from gain of function experiments exactly because it has some genetic features that are unlike to have resulted from mutation or random gene swapping and because it didn’t leave a trail of trial-and-error and rapid evolution at the beginning like SARS and MERS did. It started evolving seriously only after it was faced with developing natural herd immunity and when prolonged lingering of medically treated victims as well as countries allowing rapant infection rates gave it vessels to evolve.

    My conclusion is that we cannot take a wait and see approach. Even those that have been infected are not safe from newer variants like P1 Manaus. And while things are looking brighter again with summer approaching, the next winter will come. Neither has low carb eating or megadoses of Vit. D been the panacea we had hoped for.

    Either we have to keep distancing until there is a better vaccine or if we want to open up, we need to use what vaccines are there, maybe with added precautions such as:
    – using the Danish injection techique of pulling back the plunger to make sure no vein has been pierced
    – doing vaccination drives exactly when rates are low, i.e. in summer (apparently, at least the Pfizer vaccine leads to a drop in immune response in the first few days after the first shot,
    http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/2021/05/feeling-experimental.html)
    – will using lower doses or maybe doing four low dose instead of two full dose shots do the trick?

    From everything I have seen, the risk of clotting complications or myocardia after vaccination is always at least an order of magnitude lower than of getting the same complications from a real Covid infection.

    In the long run, what other options are there? Can a vaccine be devoloped that uses a different target? What about traditional inerted virus vaccines?

      Really? Not killing at a rate much different from a flu virus, and even that is neglecting the manipulation of the numbers by ascribing covid19 to almost anything. Would you care to share the figures that say otherwise? In the meantime have a look at http://www.yellowcard.ukcolum.org for a few of the adverse effects.

        The flu virus had centuries to adapt to humans, as did humans to deal with it. Every now and then, it learns a new trick, resulting in a bad or devastating pandemic.

        A close relative of this virus in 2012 infected six miners clearing out bat shit out of the Mojiang mine near Yunnan, 1500 km from Wuhan. They got sick, three died, but notbody else got infected though we can be sure they were not treated like walking biohazards. Then we hear nothing and 7 years later, Covid 19 emerges which is essentially the same genome with a few rather surgical changes and it is highly contagious and fairly deadly. How did it get to Wuhan? Where is the trail it left on its way? SARS1 left a trail, and it was mutating heavily in the beginning, trying to adapt to humans, and if failed rather quickly. SARS2 war there, bam, ready to infect and spread as it was. If an elephant appeared in a shopping mall, would you assume it beamed there from its jungle or escaped from a zoo?

      Just another thought: in addition to getting the vaccine when infection rates are low, preferably in summer, making sure it does not get injected into a vein and staying clear of opportunities to get infected, what else can one do? Does strict intermittend fasting / low carb for the next fortnight sould like a plan to fend off potential endothelial inflammation?

      As far as I can see, Eric, the answer to your question is that Covid-19 is a disease that does not require a vaccine of any kind.

      The only people to whom the disease is dangerous are so frail and sick that the vaccine is at least as harmful to them as the virus.

        Yes, I do. One with unwanted side effects, as vaccines go, but it does the job it was designed to do. I think that being fit and healthy was enough for most to survive the first wave but with the mutations out there, I am very concerned about the next winter.

          At present cases are increasing slightly in the UK, allegedly because of the ‘Indian variant’. Meanwhile, in India, cases have been plummeting ever since India approved the use of ivermectin.

          The UKs increasing vaccine coverage is proving useless, while India’s massive coverage of ivermectin is proving extremely successful. The UK should learn from this.

            For now, my interpretation is that all waves have a habit of petering out because you get a background immunity in the population from passing infections that stayed below the radar – until the next variation comes along.

          This sounds like a fantastic idea!!!!

          Of course when CovIDIOTS take these Injections… and something goes badly wrong (5000 dead 25000 maimed in the US alone)… they have no legal recourse.

          So yes this is a fantastic idea!!! I knew I should have bought into the Big FARMa ETF earlier.

          A senior Chinese health official has called on the World Health Organization to scrap late-stage human trials as a criterion for its coronavirus vaccine emergency use listing.

          After all…. they are already volunteering for the Covid Experiment even though there are epic numbers of deaths and maimings… and best of all – they are doing this for free! How community-minded of them.

            For what it is worth, on the continent, the manufacturers were not let off the hook and the reviews and approvals were not preliminary but full. This was one of the reasons why Europe is behind on vaccinations, the other being that we export 50% of our production, unlike the US and UK.

            I admit having legal recourse will be of little consolation if things go really pear shaped, but from what has surfaced so far, this is not happening, fortunately.

            There may be some sort of explanation buried in there somewhere but we can’t argue with the fact that long term studies are not complete neither now nor at the time of rollout. Spade a spade etc.

      Masking is not a good solution for various reasons–mostly, it is bad for you to wear a mask. Period. If humidity is high, you will risk a bacterial infection. If humidity is low, you will risk inhaling 30% of the viruses from your previous exhalations. If you go unmasked, your larger droplets won’t be aerosolized because they will drop to the floor.

      Supplement with vitamins C, D, zinc and get vitamin-D-producing sun exposure when you can. That’s been generally effective for respiratory viruses. And have some elderberry concentrate on hand in the winter in case you get the sniffles.

      No reason to panic or fear covid.

    I was looking at the Senate Hearing on COVID-19 Outpatient Treatment dated November 19, 2020, particularly Dr Peter McCullough’s testimony, and I noticed some interesting differences between the transcript and what was actually said.
    https://www.c-span.org/video/?478159-1/senate-hearing-covid-19-outpatient-treatment#

    Now the transcript is obviously done by speech-to-text software, and therefore imperfect. So when “hydroxychloroquine” is transcribed as “hydroxy clerk” one can blame the software, but when it is replaced by the word “it” one must suspect intentional human involvement, since no software would do that. It does make the transcript hard to search. And when chunks of text are missing, which can change the meaning slightly or eliminate searchable proper names, one has to wonder why. (Note that the transcript does not appear to be time-stamped, so it’s hard to match the video with the transcript.)

    Very clear article. I am researching (as a layman) what makes the difference between someone who barely notices the mRNA injection, and somebody who suffers badly, unto and including severe clotting problems.
    Three things interest me – if the injection is intramuscular, presumably the intent is for the immune response to be localized, even if the T-cells, etc are eventually widely dispersed. Therefore, what happens if a vein or capillary gets a significant amount of the vaccine? Where might the spike proteins be expressed, and what harm could be caused?
    Your explanation for the method by which the Covid-19 virus can damage lungs and blood vessels is very good – I’ll chase down those other articles about the effects of the spike protein alone.
    If the mRNA vaccine is short-lived, how long would the spike proteins circulate? Are they mostly neutralized but the immune response, OR do they accumulate where harm can be done?

      You might expect that that mechanism should apply to all intramuscular injections – so there should be some research about the frequency with which it happens.

      Also, is this more likely to happen if a hastily trained person gives the injection?

      There is some bonus on not knowing the things.
      A small volume of anything put with the most fine needle in a muscle disrupts its structure like a small bomb. Myocites (muscle cells) and tiny blood vessels (arterioles, capillaries, veins) are destroyed.
      Besides, for the sake of not cause pain, the needle is “harpooned” quickly and the product is inject in seconds.
      The substance injected can access the circulation immediately. Not all of it, but most part.
      The intramuscular route is second in efficacy and speed of action compared to the intravenous one.
      Have a nice “jab”.

    Just read this fantastic quote from Malcolm’s book “Doctoring Data” written long before Covid:

    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

    Then they came for the socialists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    Here’s a thought… what if the majority of all doctors and nurses in the UK walked off the job protesting against the Covid response – and refused to Inject anyone?

    Now that might have some effect….

    We’ll grow palm trees in Resolute Bay before that happens though.

    It’s funny how people — no matter how pissed they are — do not take the obvious actions … I observed in Hong Kong millions taking to the streets to oppose the Junta… they were beaten and tear gassed and jailed…

    All they had to do is enmasse refuse to report to work for a week… if that didn’t work make it a month… but nope… and look at the end result.

      After 15 Months of the lies and insanity the medical profession has had sufficient time to speak out. They haven’t. Therefore we can safely assume they won’t.

        “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, … The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply.” Nathan Rothschild

        “Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws. … Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.” — Mackenzie King, Canadian Prime Minister 1935-1948.

        “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence

        “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ― Woodrow Wilson

        “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays – Propaganda

          In 1815, Rothschild made his famous statement: “I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls the British money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”[1]

          It came with a reference (without page number) apparently citing Volume 2 of Niall Ferguson’s “The House of Rothschild”, but since that volume deals with the years 1849-1999, it seemed to me at the very least rather doubtful considering Nathan died in 1836.

        Steve: I suspect the primary reason for this is fear. A powerful tool of control. The purpose of this plandemic is twofold: 1. To control the population, which requires monitoring; thus vaccination cards and passports (China has gone much farther than this). 2. To transfer vast amounts of wealth from the population to the very wealthy via untested, dangerous, and unnecessary gene therapies masquerading as vaccines and forced into the arms of the credulous and those who know better but have no choice.

    Now that the UK Government has approved the destruction of the UK gene stock we can congratulate the Tories for the destruction of the UK economy, the NHS and the future of the youth of our country. Aren’t they doing well ?
    Hyperbole ? Maybe, the scary thing is no-one actually knows the impact and dangers of giving an experimental vaccine to children – children who are literally not at any risk from Covid themselves.

    Last week, Britain’s regulators approved the Pfizer jab for 12-15-year-olds, concluding it is ‘safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits of this vaccine outweigh any risk’. Several high-profile experts have questioned the ethics of the decision, which came even as 93 doctors in Israel – a testing ground for the same vaccine – wrote to their government begging them not to use it on children.

    Dr Bridle, an associate professor of viral immunology at the University of Guelph, Ontario is a member of the Canadian Covid Care Alliance. This group has produced a guide as to ‘why parents, teens and children should question the Covid-19 vaccine’:

    Do you think this is a massive over-reaction? Do I really believe that we are heading for some form of totalitarian state, where dissent against the medical ‘experts’ will be punishable by imprisonment? Well, yes, I do. We are already in a situation where doctors who fail to follow the dreaded ‘guidelines’ can be sued, or dragged in front of the General Medical Council, and struck off. Thus losing their job, and income.”

    Yes, Malcolm Kendrick could see it all coming and wrote that accompanying last paragraph in 2014. A very wise man who has followed bogus research for years. Ridiculed by the censors of course but not by people with true knowledge and integrity.

    It may already be too late but everyone needs to wake up. Our freedom is going and our lives are certainly threatened, but not directly by any virus. We need to end all the lies and censorship and the branding of anyone with a different point of view a conspiracy theorist.

    Does anyone know anything about CATIONIC LIPIDS, an ingredient of lipid nanoparticles(LPN’s) used to encapsulate the mRNA in vaccines?

    Reference- Hearing #37 of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee with Dr. Vanessa Schmidt Kreuger in Jan 2021-
    English translation at
    http://enformtk.u-aizu.ac.jp/howard/gcep_dr_vanessa_schmidt_krueger/

    Something alarming comes up about the lipid nanoparticles and specifically CATIONIC LIPIDS.

    Dr SK states the ingredients of the LPN’s lipid envelope include cholesterol, PEG component and CATIONIC LIPID – the latter she describes as “very very toxic” and “we have known this for over 20 years”. (PEG has a separate problem.)

    In discussing the BioNTech vaccine :”the LPN’s consist of up to 50% of these CATIONIC LIPIDS, 50% is very high, they are toxic because they have this positive charge…..it(they) create maximum oxidative stress in the cells leading to such damage that the cell cannot repair itself fast enough, and that is why it dies.”

    The CATIONIC LIPIDS are so toxic that in animal studies rats sustained massive liver damage. The liver showed “vacuolising” – attempting to sequester away the cationic lipid in vacuoles within it.

    Dr SK continues -“BioNTech admits that themselves, it is in the report, it is the cationic lipids. The liver tries to eliminate these cationic lipids, to metabolize them, but does not manage because there are too many of them”

    So in the case of both cationic lipids and PEGylated lipids, the body excretes these toxins into the public water supply? So many questions –

    How long do these toxins persist? How can they be removed or neutralized? Can unruptured nanoparticles be excreted? Could ionizing water neutralize the toxicity of cationic lipids?

    With mass vaccination roll-outs what quantities of this stuff could we be talking about?

    What happens if a PEG sensitized person drinks PEGylated lipid laced water?

    What happens if we drink cationic lipid laced water?

    Interview answer -” they haven’t considered this at all because they haven’t done any analysis on the environmental impact of all of this…”

    I have tried to search PubMed for articles on waste water treatment of cationic lipid but lack the science background to understand the studies I found.

    So please comment any scientists/ science researchers or civil engineers familiar with waste water treatments out there, (and of course Dr Kendrick if you are able to).

      I’m a civil engineer and I read that article and I am unconcerned. The amounts of lipids and PEG involved are so small that by the time they get into the drinking water you are talking infinitesimal amounts measured in parts per billion, not to mention most of them will have passed through humans, animals, insects, bacteria and algae and been deactivated along the way.

      I can’t comment on what happens inside you when you get the jab, though.

        I’m a chemical engineer who’s spent six years working in a large water/waste water utility. The emphasis on treating waste water is the removal of solids, nitrates and phosphates, with possible additional treatment by u.v. (to minimise bacteria and viruses) if the final effluent is discharged to a river. We know that many chemicals like oestrogen are not removed and are implicated in fish fertility and sexuality despite infinitesimal concentrations (<5ppb).

        https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/03/160304092230.htm

        Water treatment plants are only concerned with removing particles and sanitising against bacteria/viruses. I doubt that the flocculent (aluminium sulphate) will remove lipids.

        If lipids are making it through our internal processes, including the trillions of bacteria in our guts, into our waste streams intact then I don’t see why they should be “deactivated”, whatever that means, by other organisms even if such organisms ingest them before they’re extracted for human use.

          I’m not going to argue with you, but to motivate my unconcern, I note the word “cationic” which implies something highly reactive with an electrical charge and assumed it would quickly react with [whatever] and thereafter no longer be highly reactive.

          I note also that many lipids are food and assumed that something would eat and digest them in their journey to our drinking water, plus they are dissolved by detergents of which there are massive quantities in our waste water. Fat is a problem in our pipes (“fatbergs”) but I’m not aware that it’s a problem after wastewater treatment.

          Cationic lipids would likely bind with a chloride ion and produce a solid. But chloride ions are so rare! (for non-chemists, chloride ions are everywhere and this was a joke)

          Chloride ions are likely to produce water-insoluble solids like calcium chloride. The ionic bonds of chloride have a substantial covalent character when bonded to large cations, iirc from my very rusty chemistry. We used test tubes made from sabertooth cat fangs back then.

    Dr Kendrick,
    Another wonderful article. It felt like a mini medical lesson, and I felt I learned a lot. Thank you for all you are doing and the way you explain the issues. I have some other questions I would love to know more about.

    I imagine there is a process by which medical professionals report malpractice/negligence, and I assume you have reported the UK’s medical decisions regarding COVID. It would be fascinating if you could write an article on your and your colleages’ comminications with the authorities and the responses received.

    Is there any process by which regular citizens can report the malpractice/negligence that we are aware of?

    Has anyone organised a survey of all relevant medical professionals (e.g. epidemiologists etc.) in the UK to gauge overall feelings as to whether they agree with the UK’s health reponse? If not, what organisation normally would perform this task?

    Regarding the COVID PCR test, I predicted many months ago that as the vaccines were rolled out the they would reduce the cycle threshold value needed to flag a positive test (to give the impression the vaccines are working better than they are). Are you aware of any data that indicates this is occurring in the UK? In which datasets would we find this data? I believe there was a WHO article recently that said after vaccination the cycle threshold should be set to 25.

    Are you in a positon to submit to a medical journal a research paper that refutes any of the current incorrect UK COVID policies?

    Is it just me… or does anyone else find it very odd that they’d skip these key tests … then want to Inject this into children … who are at no risk from Covid?

    Recently, there has been speculation regarding potential safety signals associated with COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Many different unusual, prolonged, or delayed reactions have been reported, and often these are more pronounced after the second shot. Women have reported changes in menstruation after taking mRNA vaccines. Problems with blood clotting (coagulation) – which are also common during COVID-19 disease – are also reported.

    Among the most critical tests, which must be performed prior to testing any drug or vaccines in a human being, is whether it can cause mutations in the DNA (genotoxicity), or whether it could cause problems with cells or tissues of the reproductive tract – including ovaries (reproductive toxicity). In the case of the Pfizer COVID mRNA vaccine, these newly revealed documents raise additional questions about both the genotoxicity and reproductive toxicity risks of this product. Standard studies designed to assess these risks were not performed in compliance with accepted empirical research standards. Furthermore, in key studies designed to test whether the vaccine remains near the injection site or travels throughout the body, Pfizer did not even use the commercial vaccine (BNT162b2) but instead relied on a “surrogate” mRNA producing the luciferase protein.

    These new disclosures seem to indicate that the U.S. and other governments are conducting a massive vaccination program with an incompletely characterized experimental vaccine. It is certainly understandable why the vaccine was rushed into use as an experimental product under emergency use authority, but these new findings suggest that routine quality testing issues were overlooked in the rush to authorize use. People are now receiving injections with an mRNA gene therapy-based vaccine, which produces the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in their cells, and the vaccine may be also delivering the mRNA and producing spike protein in unintended organs and tissues (which may include ovaries). Unfortunately, there is no way to know if this is related to vaccine safety signals or reports of menstrual irregularities; the required studies were either not done or not done properly.

    If there is a conspiracy to reduce the world’s population via a pandemic (which I don’t believe), this isn’t it. This is a trial run to develop and test the best rapid-response anti-pandemic technology on billions of people to make sure it is perfectly safe. That’s why they are giving the various vaccines away for free.

    Recall that when you use a “free” service like Facebook, you are actually giving away your data in exchange. Similarly you are now being a guinea pig for various vaccine experiments, plus they are testing the population’s reaction to government anti-pandemic measures.

    So when the Big One hits (and it might be totally unplanned like Ebola, or it might be manufactured in a research laboratory), they can rapidly rush out a very safe and effective vaccine. But it won’t be given away for free. Oh no. This one you will have to pay for, and pay quite a bit. So the elites with money or connections are guaranteed to survive. For the unwashed masses, however, there are government policies like mask mandates, lockdowns, social distancing, etc. We know from experience these actions are completely useless, but lots of people believe they are effective. That’s the point. People will shelter in place and die, believing a sympathetic government is doing everything it can within its limited financial means to save them, so they will die quietly and without a fuss.

    The poor but young and healthy will probably survive, with reduced reproductive capacity. That’s good. There’s will always be a need for an underclass to do the dirty work in the glorious unpolluted future the elite are (maybe) planning.

      Not sure that works when we do not pay for our vaccines at time of supply but through general taxation.

    If Big Pharma wanted more money — they could have just had a word with finance ministers and said ‘you give us some cash or we unleash covid and make the cash by selling vaccines….’

    Surely if they would have been handed a trillion dollars … that’s a win win for everyone.

    The Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath has pushed the global debt higher by $32 trillion in 2020 to $290.6 trillion led by government and non-financial corporate debt, and will continue to rise in 2021, said a latest release by Moody’s Investor Service (Moody’s).”

    Enough is Enough! How dare these Big Pharma’s think they are financial institutions!

    “The United Nations said Monday that the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on the world of work was four times worse than the 2008 economic crisis. The UN’s International Labour Organization said the pandemic had had a “devastating” and even “cataclysmic” effect, as it sought to tackle an uneven recovery from the coronavirus crisis.”

    NHS GP resigns and speaks out on COVID-19 lies … https://tapnewswire.com/2021/06/doctors-resigns-and-breaks-truth-of-vaccine-dangers/

    I doubt that he’s the only doctor at the end of his tether. I don’t see an easy way in which the monolithic NHS can be reformed in the direction he favours, i.e. the one advocated by Malcolm Kendrick, David Grimes, David Unwin and others.

    If I was slightly more confident, I’d de-register totally from a GP even at my age (67).

    It may have made some sense in the past in terms of efficiency and lower costs but having a monolithic and state-owned NHS seems to have made some unwelcome policies easier to implement in the past 15 months. ‘Whitehall’ can interfere in a centralised system to its heart’s content, including telling medics. exactly what to do and say and now stealing, sorry ‘transferring’ English GP records to the DHSC where they can be sold to the highest bidder. (Opt out within a fortnight if you object.)

      Hi, Eric,

      Read the article (and many of the comments). I’m a little puzzled. I thought the “original” SARS-CoV-2 undermined the interferon response. Does Alpha simply do it better?

      It’s hard for me to imagine how anyone anywhere has survived this “resourceful” virus. People with no antibodies and compromised interferon and nary a symptom of COVID-19. Must be much more to human immunity than interferon and antibodies. Just gotta be. I hope someone, somewhere is trying to figure out why.

      The vaccines seem one-dimensional by comparison.

      There’s also the question of “viral interference”. Catch a rhinovirus about the same time as SARS-CoV-2, and the rhinovirus triggers the interferon activity. Poor SARS-CoV-2 doesn’t get off the starting blocks.

      https://academic.oup.com/jid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/infdis/jiab147/6179975

      Seems to me this sort of thing implies a great deal of randomness in the COVID epidemiological data. Yet we argue endlessly over whose mitigation efforts work better.

        Good point, Maybe we should be helicopters to spray rhinovirus in the next wave 🙂

        Seriously, there was some noise about flu, pertussis or varicella vaccine beeing somewhat protective against Covid a year ago. Could be exactly the mechanism you propose, i.e. these vaccines ramp up the immune system which then accidentially makes short work of Covid.

    It seems that the university in Barcelona who came up with the ‘story’ about there being traces of the virus in sewage in March 2019 are sticking by their research.
    This is interesting because the earliest date on the Covid timeline in September 12th 2019 when the various bat virus databases started to disappear from WIV servers.
    However, Barcelona always gets/got an influx of Chinese tourists around Chinese New Year which fell on February 5th in 2019.
    Knowing how many survive Covid when infected and considering how non-serious infection can be in young people, how likely is it that the virus ‘leaked’ far earlier than when the databases became inaccessible, and was carried to Barcelona in February 2019 where any symptomatic infections would have been identified as ‘influenza’ most likely as an unspecified ILI.

      Now bat virus databases disappearing on Sept 12 2019 is a new angle I hadn’t heard of before. Do you have more info?

        Hi Eric, sorry I thought it was fairly common knowledge but maybe I just read sites that note it. I will go back through my recent browsing history to dig out the article that discusses the timeline and post a link. Access was initially restricted then databases taken offline as I recall, Pinning down the origins is slightly academic but must be between the release of papers that revealed to ability to make chimeras from bat viruses and the attempts – removing access to genome dbs – to cover the tracks.

    Lab Made

    Medical doctor Steven Quay and Emeritus Professor Richard Muller have written an article in the Wall Street Journal in which they set out what they believe to be “the most compelling reason to favour the lab leak hypothesis”. It is the fact that SARS-CoV-2 has a genetic feature that has never been observed in natural SARS-like coronaviruses, but which is the preferred feature for scientists when engineering viruses in the lab. It’s preferred because it is simpler and more familiar for lab workers, and also because it can then be used as a tell-tale marker of the engineered virus when tracking it in the lab.

    The genome of SARS-CoV-2 includes as part of its genetic coding of the spike protein a sequence known as “double CGG” (CGG-CGG) that codes for two “arginine” amino acids in a row. Quay and Muller explain that there are 35 other possibilities that could occur in this location, known as the “furin cleavage site”, which would not disadvantage the virus in any way so are equally likely to be selected for by natural fitness. Furthermore, viruses often evolve by picking up genetic code from other viruses (known as recombination), but since double CGG doesn’t exist in nature for SARS-like viruses (or didn’t before SARS-CoV-2) this common route of picking it up is not available, making its appearance in a new coronavirus even less likely.

    On the other hand, double CGG is the most commonly used sequence for lab workers when engineering the furin cleavage site in gain-of-function research, because it is readily available and familiar and can then be used to track the engineered virus.

    There is also evidence the Wuhan scientists tried to conceal this genetic smoking gun. When the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s “bat woman” Dr Shi Zhengli and colleagues published a paper in February 2020 with the virus’s partial genome, the double-CGG furin cleavage site section was in the part of the genome omitted (though could be seen in the accompanying data).

    The double-CGG furin cleavage site is often used in gain-of-function engineering to make a virus more infectious or virulent. “Humanised” mice are typically then repeatedly exposed to the engineered virus in order to accelerate the process of adaptation to humans. If the virus did originate through this kind of research it would therefore explain why there is no evidence of this adaptation occurring in nature for SARS-CoV-2, unlike with SARS-1.

    A further point of interest is that the U.S. National Security Council, after reading an April 2020 paper in which Chinese military researchers studied SARS-CoV-2 using humanised mice, deduced that the mice involved must have been engineered some time during summer 2019, prior to the pandemic, raising questions about the reasons they had been engineered and what they were being used for at the time SARS-CoV-2 emerged in the autumn of 2019.

    The evidence for a lab leak origin during gain-of-function research is looking more compelling by the day.

      Eddy,
      I know that the earlier SARS-COV viruses also featured the spike protein. Do you know if this protein is present more generally in nature – i.e. is it possible that the gene for this protein was designed some time back, and they have been working since then on trying to produce a virus that could effectively spread it?

      Need to assess the source of these stories, as China itself remarks this is a similar agenda to the Iraq WMD stories disseminated by the same people and organisations – primarily the US and UK war criminals.
      Note:
      “Medical doctor Steven Quay and Emeritus Professor Richard Muller have written an article in the Wall Street Journal”. Doh ! maybe they couldn’t get their ‘stories’ printed in a medical journal ?
      “the U.S. National Security Council, after reading an April 2020 paper,.. deduced that the mice involved must have been engineered some time during summer 2019,” Spooks speak !
      The evidence, if it exists, is very shaky, and blaming China is very convenient politically.
      I know Dr K is apparently of the opinion that China is possibly to blame, but all I would say is that you can guarantee that firm evidence will NEVER be produced by those spreading this narrative and those spreading these stories very obviously have other agendas to promote.
      Other obvious parallels exist in the Skripal and Salisbury stories.
      Won’t be fooled again ?

        Dr. Bertok Gabor, Hungarian virologist explains why the virus could not hav mutated naturally to its present form.

        Apparently the bats were thousands of kms away from wuhan for a start.
        Narrower time frame here.

        WMD was promoted by the Republicans primarily to justify rushing in to iraq (where contracts found their way to Rumsfeld & Chaney interests )
        Difficult to see a rush in to china and trump appears to have less of s war mongering instinct than previous administrations.
