MALMÖ, Sweden (ChurchMilitant.com) - The mRNA from Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine converts into DNA within six hours of entering the body's liver cells according to a groundbreaking study by Swedish researchers at Lund University.
The explosive peer-reviewed research demolishes countless assertions by the "fact-checkers" and global health organizations.
UNICEF, for example, asserted that "mRNA vaccines are not live viral vaccines and do not interfere with human DNA."
The Bill Gates–funded Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations similarly claimed that "mRNA isn't the same as DNA, and it can't combine with our DNA to change our genetic code," further stating that "there is no reason to think that they [COVID vaccines] will have a lasting effect on our biology."
"The genetic material delivered by mRNA vaccines never enters the nucleus of your cells — which is where your DNA is kept," the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention categorically states on its webpage titled "Myths and Facts About COVID-19 Vaccines."
UNICEF fact-checkers also quoted Prof. Jeffrey Almond of Oxford University, who said, "Injecting RNA into someone does nothing to human-cell DNA."
However, the new study, published Friday in the journal Current Issues in Molecular Biology, shows that the Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine "is able to enter the human liver cell line Huh7" and that "mRNA is reverse-transcribed intracellularly into DNA in as fast as six hours."
The process of converting RNA to DNA is called "reverse transcription," since it overturns the previous dogma of molecular biology — which held that such conversion was a one-way process (DNA into either DNA or RNA).
"If there is viral genomic integration from these vaccines, there is the potential risk of subsequent autoimmune disease and cancer," scientist Dr. Alan Moy, founder of the John Paul II Medical Research Institute, told Church Militant.
"The implication of this data would suggest that the assertion that mRNA vaccines do not cause viral nucleic-acid integration is incorrect," Moy emphasized, adding, "Did Pfizer and Moderna perform preclinical studies to evaluate this possibility? Did the FDA require these studies from Pfizer and Moderna in the first place?"
"This information is relevant from the recent revelation that the FDA and Pfizer have tried to delay the research findings to the public over 75 years," Dr. Moy said, after consulting with peers on the paper titled "Intracellular Reverse Transcription of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 In Vitro in Human Liver Cell Line."
Dr. Peter McCullough, the world's leading expert on COVID-19, said that the discovery has "enormous implications of permanent chromosomal change and long-term constitutive spike synthesis driving the pathogenesis of a whole new genre of chronic disease."
In February, McCullough, a widely published internist, cardiologist and epidemiologist, warned the Vatican to end its vaccine advocacy and mandates and "immediately apologize" for the "grievous error" of "violating a critical code of bioethics," Church Militant reported.
Reminding Pope Francis that life is a gift, McCullough accused the pontiff of "giving a gift of the loss of life" and speculated that the Vatican "will have to account for potentially hundreds of thousands of lives lost due to the vaccine."
The new study vindicates Church Militant's publication of two academic articles by Dr. Massimo Citro Della Riva (with an introduction by Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò). The articles responded to the polemic against Viganò published in Corrispondenza Romana by pediatrician Gwyneth A. Spaeder.
Basic biology teaches us that messenger RNA (or mRNA) is a molecule that tells the body how to make proteins. Once the protein has been produced, the mRNA is broken down and exits the body with other waste products. This process occurs only in one direction.
There is never a possibility of modification of the vaccine recipient's genome, since the process that involves transcription and translation, by which proteins are produced, proceeds forward from DNA to RNA to protein. It can't work the other way around.
Citing peer-reviewed research from 2020, Dr. Citro noted that "the reverse transcription of viral RNA [into DNA] is also possible (as occurs with other RNA viruses), which is then capable of triggering long-term chronic diseases."
"The reverse transcription of the vaccine mRNA is, for now, only hypothetical — just as it is for the DNA of the adenovirus vector. It is, however, plausible due to the presence of retrotransposons," Riva noted, adding "I would not be so sure that vaccine mRNA cannot reverse transcribe itself into our DNA."
Riva's hypothesis has now been confirmed by researchers — who have shown in vitro or inside a petri dish how the Pfizer mRNA vaccine is converted (on a liver cell line) into human DNA.
Over the last year, fact-checkers and health regulators quoted pro-vaccination scientists to attack the claim of reverse transcription as a "conspiracy theory." However, earlier studies did preempt the possibility of the risk of the Pfizer vaccine's mRNA hacking into our DNA.
"A 2021 study by the Whitehead Institute, the National Cancer Center and MIT reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal that the RNA from the COVID virus resulted in genetic integration in cultured human cells and in patients who were infected with COVID," Dr. Moy told Church Militant.
"This background information led to the impetus for the more recent report to test whether the mRNA vaccine from Pfizer could similarly result in integration of the mRNA gene therapy into the human genome," Moy explained.
