Many scientists and medical experts have warned that vaccinating
children against COVID-19 is both unnecessary and risky in the extreme. The
video above features comments by Peter Doshi, Ph.D., made during a June 10,
2021, public hearing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related
Biological Products Advisory Committee.
is an associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and
the senior editor of The BMJ. He has previously pointed out that while Pfizer
claims its vaccine is 95% effective, this is the relative risk reduction. The
absolute risk reduction — which is far more relevant for public health measures
— is actually less than 1%.1 As such, the
COVID-19 vaccine is of dubious benefit, to say the least.
If you choose to watch the video above I must warn you to stop after
Doshi finishes and not view the presentation by Dr. Jacqueline Miller. She’s a
paid shill pediatrician and the head of development for infectious diseases at
Moderna. The reason I advise this caution is because if you understand reality,
you will be shocked at how easily a physician can sell out and sacrifice even
her own children in the delusional belief that Moderna’s shot provides any
benefit to children.
Meanwhile, largely because of
irresponsible beliefs and comments like Miller’s, harms are rapidly mounting,
which skews the risk-benefit ratio even further. Considering the potential for
harm, children should not get the COVID-19 vaccine, Doshi says, citing trial
evidence from Pfizer — the very same evidence used to support its emergency use
authorization application for 12- to 15-year-olds. In this trial, harms clearly
outweighed the benefits.
While benefits were rare and
short-lived, side effects were common and long-term effects are completely
unknown. In the 12-to-15 age group, 75.5% experienced headache, along with a
long list of other transient side effects. However, more serious systemic
adverse events also occurred in 2.4% of the trial subjects receiving the actual
the fully vaccinated [children] avoided COVID; 98% of the vaccinated wouldn’t
have gotten COVID anyway … So, the benefit is small. ~ Peter Doshi, Ph.D.
Now, Pfizer boasted a 100%
efficacy rate in this age group. This, Doshi explains, was based on 16 cases
occurring in the placebo group, while no cases were recorded in the vaccine
group. However, since there were about 1,000 placebo recipients, fewer than 2%
of the placebo group actually tested positive for COVID-19.
another way, 2% of the fully vaccinated avoided COVID,” Doshi
says, adding “98% of the vaccinated wouldn’t have gotten COVID anyway …
So, the benefit is small.”
One of the reasons for why
children reap so little benefit from this jab is because a significant portion
of American children are already immune and aren’t at risk of infection to
begin with. Doshi cites Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data showing
an estimated 23% of children under the age of 4 and 42% of those age 5 through
17 have already had a SARS-CoV-2 infection and now have robust and long-lasting
most side effects in children have been short-lived, at least seven deaths
among 12- to 17-year-olds had been reported as of June 11, 2021, as well as 271
events rated “serious.”2 In the long term, there’s really
no telling what might happen, and that’s a really important point.
As noted by Doshi, during the
2009 swine flu pandemic, narcolepsy didn’t become apparent until nine months
after vaccination with the Pandemrix vaccine, and it wasn’t until four months
into Israel’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign that heart damage was recognized as
a side effect in young men and boys.
Does Not Work
goes on to explain why vaccinating children will not likely
benefit adults, as claimed. This practice, sometimes referred to as
“cocooning,” has never actually been proven. Doshi cites a 2021 BMJ editorial3 in which the authors stressed that vaccinating
children against COVID-19 is “hard to justify right now,” seeing how children
experience only mild disease and transmission by children is limited, while the
possibility of unintended consequences is high.
childhood infection (and re-exposures in adults) continue to be typically mild,
childhood vaccination will not be necessary to halt the pandemic,” the
marginal benefits should therefore be considered in the context of local
healthcare resources, equitable distribution of vaccines globally, and a more
nuanced understanding of the differences between vaccine and infection induced
most adults are vaccinated, circulation of SARS-CoV-2 may in fact be desirable,
as it is likely to lead to primary infection early in life when disease is
mild, followed by booster re-exposures throughout adulthood as transmission
blocking immunity wanes but disease blocking immunity remains high. This would
keep reinfections mild and immunity up to date.”
Doshi points out that even if
you believe that a small benefit is better than nothing, you must remember that
this is an unproven hypothetical benefit. We would need a proper randomized
controlled trial to ascertain whether vaccinating children might actually
benefit adults. “We need confirmatory evidence, not just assumptions,” Doshi
Children to Benefit Adults Is Unethical
However, even if vaccinating
children were found to reduce infection among adults, we may still not be able
to do so. Why? Because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration can only authorize
the use of a medical product in a given population if the benefit outweighs the
risk in that same population.
This means that even if
adults were to benefit, if children don’t benefit from it themselves, then we
cannot authorize the vaccine for children. So, if children reap no benefit,
then whether or not vaccinating them might benefit adults is a moot argument.
You cannot authorize a drug for use in a population that reaps no benefit.
In conclusion, Doshi points
out that the FDA has no basis on which to grant COVID-19 vaccines emergency use
authorization for children in the first place, as COVID-19 is not an emergency
in children. The threat this infection poses to children is negligible and no
more serious than that of the common cold or flu.
Since demonstrated risks far
outweigh demonstrated benefits in children, the vaccines also fail to meet the
biologics license application required for ultimate market approval.
Already, healthy children
have died shortly after the jabs, dozens of cases of heart inflammation have
been reported, and Pfizer’s own biodistribution study raises serious questions
about the shot’s potential to cause infertility. Last but not least, since
there’s no “unmet need,” there’s also no need to rush to approve these injections
To be clear, the only way
they can even try to justify vaccinating children is by sacrificing them as
shields to protect the elderly, which is completely unethical. Children are not
harmed by COVID-19 itself, yet they keep using the slogan that “Nobody is safe
until everyone is vaccinated,” which simply isn’t true.
Consider the Many Risks
long-term effects are unknown, there’s reason to suspect they may be severe. A
Pfizer biodistribution study5,6 demonstrates
the synthetic mRNA does not stay near the injection site as initially assumed.
It is, in fact, widely disseminated in your body within hours of injection.
It enters your bloodstream
and accumulates in a variety of organs, primarily your spleen, bone marrow,
liver, adrenal glands and, in women, the ovaries. The spike protein — which we
now know is pathogenic and causes disease in and of itself — also travel to
your heart, brain and lungs. Once in your blood circulation, the spike protein
binds to platelet receptors and the cells that line your blood vessels. When
that happens, one of several things can occur:
can cause platelets to clump together — Platelets, aka thrombocytes, are
specialized cells in your blood that stop bleeding. When there’s blood vessel
damage, they clump together to form a blood clot. This is why we’ve been
seeing clotting disorders associated with both
COVID-19 and the vaccines
can cause abnormal bleeding
your heart, it can cause heart problems
your brain, it can cause neurological damage
your blood vessels, it can cause vasculitis, including Kawasaki disease,
antiphospholipid syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma and Sjogren’s
disease.7 These conditions significantly increase your risk of
death, in some cases raising mortality by 50 times compared to people who do
not have these conditions
Regardless of the tissue, the
spike protein can also impair your mitochondrial function, which is imperative
for good health, innate immunity and disease prevention of all kinds.
the spike protein interacts with the ACE2 receptor, it can disrupt
mitochondrial signaling, thereby inducing the production of reactive oxygen
species and oxidative stress. If the damage is serious enough, uncontrolled
cell death can occur, which in turn leaks mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) into your
from being detected in cases involving acute tissue injury, heart attack and
sepsis, freely circulating mtDNA has also been shown to contribute to a number
of chronic diseases, including systemic inflammatory response syndrome or SIRS,
heart disease, liver failure, HIV infection, rheumatoid arthritis and certain
spike protein is also expelled in breast milk, which could be lethal for
babies. You are not transferring antibodies. You are transferring the vaccine
itself, as well as the spike protein, which could result in bleeding and/or
blood clots in your child. All of this suggests that for individuals who are at
low risk for COVID-19, children and teens in particular, the risks of these
vaccines outweigh the benefits by a significant margin.
Spike Protein Harms Your Health
written several articles detailing the mechanisms by which the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein can decimate
your health. For a refresher, see my interview with Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D.,
and Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., featured in “The Many Ways in Which COVID Vaccines May Harm Your
recently came across yet another paper that describes a very important
mechanism that, to my knowledge, is not widely known, despite being published
in July 2020. The paper, “Genetic Polymorphisms Complicate COVID-19 Therapy:
Pivotal Role of HO-1 in Cytokine Storm,”10 explains that
the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein has a far higher affinity for porphyrin molecules
in the cell membrane than ACE-2.
are molecules with optical properties. Their ability to absorb light accounts
for many of the beneficial health effects of sunlight.11 Porphyrins are
also the building blocks of heme, the precursor to hemoglobin, which is
necessary to bind oxygen in your blood.
According to this paper,
porphyrins not only facilitate SARS-CoV-2 invasion into the cell, but they also
allow the virus to bind functional hemoprotein within the cell, thereby
increasing oxidative stress.
When the spike protein bind
to porphyrins, it upregulates free heme and iron, which causes oxidation and
fuels inflammation. It also increases reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation,
while decreasing levels of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) enzymes. HO enzymes degrade
heme into free iron, bilirubin (which has antioxidant effects) and carbon
monoxide (which is antiapoptotic). As such, the HO system plays a crucial role
in cellular defense.
spike protein essentially overwhelms the anti-inflammatory cytoprotection
normally offered by HO-1. As dysfunctional porphyrin are no longer capable of
making heme, more hemoprotein becomes available for SARS-CoV-2 to bind to,
which results in the release of more free iron. As the cycle continues,
inflammation builds. Iron released by dying cells also has toxic effects. All
of this has devastating consequences for your mitochondria, and, as noted in
insufficient mitochondria in cells are evident, such as in white adipose cells,
these cells are unable to accommodate the severe ROS formed leading to
overwhelming inflammation. Brown adipose cells are better at handling ROS due
to higher concentrations of mitochondria.”
This explains why obese
individuals are at much higher risk. Because their fat cells have fewer
mitochondria, they’re less able to counteract the ROS and therefore end up with
higher levels of inflammation. The unprecedented outpouring of toxic iron into
the body may also help explain why some end up with “long-hauler syndrome”
after recovering from COVID-19.
Worst of all, since all of
this is related to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, the COVID shots may also end
up promoting cancer, as excess iron is tightly associated with tumorigenesis in
multiple human cancer types through a variety of mechanisms, including
catalyzing the formation of mutagenic hydroxyl radicals, regulating DNA
replication, repair and cell cycle progression, affecting signal transduction
in cancer cells, and acting as an essential nutrient for proliferating tumor
You Have Vaccine Regret?
If you’ve already had one or
two COVID shots and are now having second thoughts, first, be sure to never
have another vaccination again, with any vaccine of any kind. Even if you’re
not having discernible symptoms as of yet, you’d be wise to start building your
innate immune system. To do that, you need to become metabolically flexible and
optimize your diet.
I interviewed Dr. Vladimir
Zelenko June 23, 2021, and that interview should go live July 4, 2021. We
discussed what Dr. Mike Yeadon — a former chief scientist at Pfizer, which is
one of the primary manufacturers of COVID shots — believes, which is that those
who are vaccinated are already condemned to certain and agonizing deaths.
He believes those who have
received the injection will die prematurely and three years is a generous
estimate for how long they can expect to remain alive.
If Yeadon’s projections are
true, it changes EVERYTHING. There is no way to know if it is accurate or not,
but Yeadon is someone who has serious insights as Pfizer’s former chief
scientist. I was a Boy Scout and their motto is to “Be prepared.” Clearly, this
is one contingency that needs to be planned for. Zelenko happens to share this
belief. We discuss in great detail the strategies that can be used to lower the
risk of Yeadon’s predictions coming true.
time-restricted eating and eat all your meals for the day within a six- to
eight-hour window. Avoid all vegetable oils and processed foods. Focus on
certified-organic foods to minimize your glyphosate exposure, and include plenty of
sulfur-rich foods to keep your mitochondria and lysosomes healthy. Both are
important for the clearing of cellular debris, including these spike proteins.
You can also boost your sulfate by taking Epsom salt baths.
You’ll also want to make sure
your vitamin D level is optimized to between 60 ng/mL and 80 ng/mL (100 nmol/L
to 150 nmol/L), ideally through sensible sun exposure. Sunlight also has other
benefits besides making vitamin D.
combat the toxicity of the spike protein, you’ll want to optimize autophagy, which may help digest and remove the
spike proteins. Time-restricted eating will upregulate autophagy, while sauna therapy, which upregulates heat shock
proteins, will help refold misfolded proteins and also tag damaged proteins and
target them for removal. It is important that your sauna is hot enough (around
170 degrees Fahrenheit) and does not have high magnetic or electric fields.
