Did Kate Middleton announce cancer to normalise Turbo Cancer?!

Did Kate Middleton announce her cancer to normalise turbo cancer as part of a depopulation pay-op?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kate Middleton Announced Cancer To Normalise Turbo Cancer!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Pope Francis just declared that God hates antivaxxers!

Here is an excerpt of that long and (intentionally???) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Palace Insider: Kate Middleton’s Cancer Is Psy-Op To Normalize Turbo Cancer Depopulation Event

Recommended : Was Kate Middleton cancer reveal an AI Deepfake video?!

 

Truth : Kate Middleton Did Not Announce Cancer To Normalise Turbo Cancer!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

Let me start by pointing out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What Kate Middleton has described is similar to what many women have undergone. There is nothing to suggest that her cancer was caused by any COVID-19 vaccine, or went turbo because of it.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Fact #2 : Royal Family Didn’t Share Four Photos

The People’s Voice article claimed that the “Royals have now shared a total of four… faked photos“. That’s simply not true.

With the exception of the infamous Mother’s Day photo taken by Prince William, and purportedly edited by Princess Catherine, the Royal Family never posted or shared the other two photos.

They were all taken and posted by the media, and not shared by the House of Windsor, Buckingham Palace, or Kensington Palace.

There is no fourth photo, only a video which purportedly shows Prince William and Princess Catherine walking outside the Windsor Farm Shop. Even that was not released by the Royal Family, but surreptitiously shot by a stranger.

Fact #3 : BBC Studios Filmed Video, But Did Not Edit It

It was BBC Studios – the production arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that filmed the video. However, it did not make any edits to the video, and was not involved in its distribution.

BBC Studios recorded the video on Wednesday, March 20, and BBC News itself was only briefed by Kensington Palace, together with other media outlets on Friday, March 22. Later that evening, Kensington Palace released the video in which Princess Catherine revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer.

If this was really a deepfake video, BBC Studios would not need to physically film Kate Middleton that Wednesday afternoon. It could have simply used a stand-in model.

Fact #4 : Kate Middleton Wore A Different Top

While people are claiming or suggesting that the AI deepfake video used an old 2016 video where Kate Middleton wore the same shirt (jumper), that does not seem to be the case either.

Both shirts / jumpers may look similar, they aren’t the same. For one thing – the 2016 shirt has shorter sleeves, and lack cuffs. The 2024 shirt has longer sleeves and cuffs.

Just in case you are wondering that the longer sleeves and cuffs might be AI-generated too, that’s highly unlikely, as I was able to identify them as separate clothes from different brands.

The 2016 shirt was a J.Crew ‘Tippi’ Striped Sweater in ​Ivory/Navy, while the 2024 shirt is actually an Erdem striped Lotus sweater in black and white.

Fact #5 : Kate Middleton Often Wears Same Jumper!

These conspiracy theorists appear to believe that Kate Middleton will never wear another outfit twice. Well, if they bothered to investigate, they would have discovered that the Princess of Wales loves her Breton top, wearing it publicly on a number of occasions.

  • May 2021 – while visiting St. Andrews University in Scotland
  • April 2023 – for Prince Louis’ fifth birthday portraits
  • 1 November 2023 – while meeting the “Dadvengers” community support group

Were the Breton jumpers back then also AI deepfake generated? Obviously, not…

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Fact #3 : Analysis Shows Video Is Not Deepfake

According to a Deepware deepfake analysis, the video of Kate Middleton speaking about her cancer diagnosis and treatment is not a deepfake video.

Fact #4 : BBC Studios Filmed The Video

Finally, let me just point out that while the video was released by Kensington Palace on behalf of Prince William and Princess Catherine, it was filmed on Wednesday, 20 March 2024, by BBC Studios – the production arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

It was only on Friday, 22 March 2024, that BBC News itself was briefed by Kensington Palace, together with other media outlets. Later that evening, Kensington Palace released the video in which Princess Catherine revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer.

Along with other media, BBC News was briefed by Kensington Palace on the announcement this afternoon.

To be clear – this video was filmed by BBC Studios, and was not recorded by Kensington Palace staff, Kate Middleton, or Prince William.

If this was really a deepfake video, BBC Studios would not need to physically film Kate Middleton that Wednesday afternoon. It could have simply used a stand-in model.

BBC Studios also stated later that it did not make any edits to the video, and was also not involved in its distribution.

Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Kate Middleton get her cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kate Middleton Got Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

After Kate Middleton revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer, some people are claiming or suggesting that the Princess of Wales developed her cancer because of the COVID-19 vaccine!

William Makis MD : I’ve been very concerned about Kate Middleton being COVID-19 Vaccine Injured. I may have been correct.

If The Princess of Wales @KensingtonRoyal had COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines and then developed cancer, this could indeed be COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Induced Turbo Cancer.

Because Turbo Cancer is being covered up by the medical establishment and media, her doctors, good as they may be, will NOT provide her adequate or appropriate cancer treatment.

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

 

No Evidence Kate Middleton Got Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news about COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No One Knows What Cancer Kate Middleton Has

Let me start with a quick summary of Kate Middleton’s shocking revelation that she has cancer.

After months of speculation, Kensington Palace released a video on Friday, 22 March 2024, in which Princess Catherine revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer. She did not specify the type of cancer she had, only that it was diagnosed after her abdominal surgery, and she was now undergoing “preventative chemotherapy”.

In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London, and at the time it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present.

My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.

Kate Middleton never revealed what cancer she has. Does she have ovarian cancer? Colorectal cancer? Endometrial cancer? She never so much as hint at what it was.

So how on Earth can anyone determine what cancer she has, never mind prove that her cancer was caused by her COVID-19 vaccination??? Using a crystal ball???

Fact #2 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What Kate Middleton has described is similar to what many women have undergone. There is nothing to suggest that her cancer was caused by any COVID-19 vaccine, or went turbo because of it.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Recommended : Are COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Was Vaccinated Almost 3 Years Ago!

Kate Middleton, who was the Duchess of Cambridge then, received her first COVID-19 vaccination on Friday, 28 May 2021.

Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.

It is unknown what vaccine she received, but she would have been fully-vaccinated by April if she received the Pfizer vaccine, or May if she received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

In other words – Kate Middleton was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 almost 3 years ago! She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years later!

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact Check : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer?!

Did King Charles just die from cancer at the age of 75?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer!

Some people are claiming that King Charles III just died from cancer at the age of 75! Here are just some examples:

TRACKER DEEP : BREAKING: SOURCE REPORTS KING CHARLES HAS DIED AFTER SUCCUMBING TO PROSTRATE CANCER AT THE AGE OF 75

Recommended : Did British Royal Family Warn Of A Major Announcement Soon?!

 

No Evidence King Charles Died From Cancer!

This appears to be another example of fake news circulating on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : King Charles Did Not Die From Cancer!

Let me start by simply pointing out that King Charles did not die from cancer on 17 March 2024.

There was no announcement from official Buckingham Palace sources like its official website, or its official Instagram page, or its official X page.

If King Charles III actually died from any cause, it would have officially announced on the official website, and on the BBC. Yet, there has been no such announcement.

On the other hand, the UK Embassy in Ukraine officially announced that King Charles is not dead:

News about King Charles III death is fake

Fact #2 : King Charles III Death Announcement Is Fake

Other people are sharing what appears to be an official announcement by Buckingham Palace, which states simply:

THE FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE BY ROYAL COMMUNICATIONS

The King passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.

Monday, 18th March 2024

Even though this announcement was dated today – Monday, 18 March 2024, it was not posted by Buckingham Palace. We also know that it’s fake, because:

  • The announcement does not appear to be formatted properly as previous official statements.
  • Statements issued by Buckingham Palace would not be labelled as issued by Royal Communications.

Recommended : Did Palace Aide Admit Kate Middleton Was In Medical Coma?!

Fact #3 : King Charles III Does Not Have Prostate Cancer

Here’s another clue why this is a fake claim – King Charles does not have prostate cancer.

On 5 February 2024, Buckingham Palace issued a statement informing the public that when King Charles underwent a procedure for benign prostate enlargement, his doctors discovered an unspecified cancer.

During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer. 

Buckingham Palace declined to reveal what type of cancer King Charles was diagnosed with, and would only confirm that it was not prostate cancer.

No further details are being shared at this stage, except to confirm that His Majesty does not have prostate cancer.

Fact #4 : No One Offered Any Evidence

Quite a number of people are claiming that an unnamed “source” reported that King Charles died from prostate cancer. However, none of them actually offered any evidence such a source exists.

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

Fact #5 : Rumour First Appeared In Russian Media

Interestingly, this rumour appears to have first appeared in Russian media, instead of the notoriously inquisitive and free media in the United Kingdom!

Russia’s Gazeta, for example, reported on its Telegram channel that Russian media reported King Charles III died, only to later update it with an announcement that:

Buckingham Palace told TASS that Charles III is alive. He continues to perform work duties and engage in private affairs.

Fact #6 : Rumour Came Right After Major Announcement Fake News

Coincidentally (or perhaps not), this rumour came right after people falsely claimed that the British Royal Family told people to look out for an impending major announcement.

Fact #7 : This Is Just Royal Family Fake News!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news about the British Royal family, like these examples:

Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Did Olivia Munn get turbo breast cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Olivia Munn Got Turbo Breast Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Olivia Munn revealed that she underwent four surgeries including a double mastectomy, some people immediately claimed or suggested that she suffered turbo breast cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Erin Elizabeth Health Nut News : Celebrity and curvy bikini model, Olivia Munn , announced she had a double mastectomy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer just months ago after all of her Covid shots.

We see this so much and it’s so prevalent. #TurboCancer. You think Benadryl and Prozac are bad? Try the jabs

Recommended : Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

 

Truth : Olivia Munn Did Not Get Turbo Breast Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Olivia Munn Was Diagnosed With Luminal B Breast Cancer

Let me start by with a recap of what led to Olivia Munn being diagnosed with Luminal B breast cancer.

On 13 March 2024, Olivia Munn posted on Instagram that she was diagnosed with Luminal B breast cancer, and shared what happened. Here’s a quick summary:

  • In February 2023, she took a genetic test to check for 90 different cancer genes, including BRCA – the most well-known breast cancer gene. She tested negative, and so did her sister, Sara.
  • In the winter of 2023, she had a mammogram, which did not find anything.
  • Her OBGYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi decided to calculate her Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score, which turned out to be 37%.
  • She was sent to get an MRI, which led to an ultrasound, and then a biopsy.
  • The biopsy showed that she had Luminal B breast cancer in both breasts. This was 2 months after her mammogram came back normal.
  • 30 days after her biopsy, she had a double mastectomy.

For those who want to read her full statement, here it is:

In February of 2023, in an effort to be proactive about my health, I took a genetic test that checks you for 90 different cancer genes. I tested negative for all, including BRCA (the most well-known breast cancer gene). My sister Sara had just tested negative as well. We called each other and high-fived over the phone. That same winter I also had a normal mammogram.

That short gap of 2 months between her negative mammogram and her breast cancer diagnosis led to claims that it was turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccines. I will show you why that’s just not true.

Recommended : Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Fact #2 : Mammograms Screening Isn’t 100% Accurate

Just because Olivia Munn had a “normal” mammogram two months before her breast cancer diagnosis, it doesn’t mean she didn’t actually have breast cancer by then. Olivia Munn’s breast cancer was likely missed by her mammogram.

According to the US Cancer Institute, mammogram screening will miss about 20% of breast cancers that are present at the time of screening, but that can be as high as 30% (source). Such false-negative results are more common in younger women (like Olivia Munn) with denser breasts, or when the tumour is small.

That is likely why her doctor decided to assess her breast cancer risk, and send her for an MRI and then, an ultrasound. In fact, Olivia Munn shared her story so that women are aware of the need to conduct their own Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score. As her doctor advised, those whose scores exceed 20% will need “annual mammograms and breast MRIs starting at age 30“.

Fact #3 : Luminal B Breast Cancer Is More Aggressive

Luminal B breast cancer is estrogen receptor-positive, and HER2-negative. About 15%-20% of breast cancers are of the Luminal B type, and they tend to appear in younger women (like Olivia Munn).

As Olivia Munn shared, “Luminal B is an aggressive, fast moving cancer“. Since her Luminal B breast cancer was missed on mammogram, and it took an MRI and an ultrasound to detect it, it was likely in the early-stage.

Luminal B breast cancer can be treated with chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and if small enough, with a lumpectomy. However, Luminal B breast cancer has a high recurrence rate, so she likely underwent the double mastectomy to eliminate the risk of a future recurrence.

Recommended : Does FDA Document Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real?!

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What Olivia Munn described are normal characteristics of Luminal B breast cancer. There is nothing to suggest that her breast cancer went “turbo” after she received her COVID-19 vaccination sometime in 2021. There isn’t even a plausible correlation (never causation) between her breast cancer diagnosis in early 2024, to her COVID-19 vaccination some three years ago!

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Did WHO Warn Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years?!

Did the WHO just warn that everyone will have cancer within the next 20 years?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WHO Warns Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the WHO just warned that everyone will have cancer within the next 20 years!

WHO Warns Everybody Will Have Cancer Within Next 20 Years

Recommended : Does Red Cross Test COVID-Vaccinated Blood Donations?

 

Truth : WHO Did Not Warn Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WHO Did Not Warn Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years

Let me start by pointing out that the World Health Organization (WHO) did not warn that “nearly every human on Earth will be diagnosed with cancer” within the next 20 years.

If the WHO actually issued such a warning, it would have been mentioned in a report or press release, and reported worldwide by the mainstream media. Yet, there was no such WHO report or press release, and zero coverage in the press.

That’s because it never happened – the WHO never issued a warning that nearly everyone on Earth will get diagnosed with cancer within the next 20 years.

Fact #2 : 2022 To 2050 Is 28 Years 

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that WHO warned that “everybody will have cancer within next 20 years”, and quotes a new WHO report which talked about the projected difference in cancer cases in 2050 versus 2022.

That’s not 20 years, or even 30 years. 2022 to 2050 is 28 years. If they cannot even get the math right – it’s just simple arithmetic, you have to wonder – what else they got wrong?

Recommended : Did McDonald’s Lose Toxic Meat Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver?!

Fact #3 : Only 8% Population Projected To Get Cancer

The WHO only issued a press release (PDF) stating that “over 35 million new cases are predicted in 2050”, which is a 77% increase from the estimated 20 million cases in 2022. In other words, there will be an estimated average of 770 million new cancer cases in the next 28 years.

There are over 8 billion people today, with 9.7 billion people projected in 2050. In short, even if those projections come true, less than 8% of the world population would have cancer by 2050.

That’s startling figure indeed, but in no way is that “nearly every human on Earth”, as The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested.

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital?!

Celine Dion just died suddenly in the hospital?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-02-24 : Added new updates, including updated MediaMass claim.
Updated @ 2023-08-31 : Added video, and updated with new examples, etc.
Originally posted @ 2023-04-17

 

Claim : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and TikTok videos claiming that Celine Dion just died in a hospital from Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), or after a tragic car / plane crash, with titles like :

30 minutes ago, R.I.P. Celine Dion (†55) Died on the way to the hospital, Farewell in tears

1 Hour Ago / R.I.P Celine Dion Died In France / Fans send their condolences to the singer

Recommended : Did Celine Dion Attend Son’s Wedding In Wheelchair?!

 

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Die Suddenly In Hospital!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported her death or car accident!

When Celine Dion announced that she was suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome, the media breathlessly reported it around the globe.

Celine Dion is not just a famous singer. She is a national treasure in Canada, and a music legend. If she fell and broke a nail, you can be sure that celebrity blogs would have excitedly reported it, if not the mainstream media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Celine Dion was involved in any car or plane crash, much less died in a hospital of a “dangerous, incurable disease”. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Celine Dion Is Still Alive!

The truth is – Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Saturday, 24 February 2024! Of course, you guys want “proof of life”, right?

Well, on Sunday night, 4 February 2024, Celine Dion appeared at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, to present the award for the Album of the Year to Taylor Swift. The 55 year-old singer walked out by herself to “The Power of Love”, which Taylor Swift sang along to with the crowd.

Thank you all. I love you right back. When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart.

Those who have been blessed enough to be here, the Grammy Awards, must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music bring to our lives and to people all around the world.

And now it gives me great joy to present a Grammy Award that two legends — Diana Ross and Sting — presented to me 27 years ago.

Wearing a pastel gown and brown coat, Celine Dion would later be photographed embracing Taylor Swift after the awards show. Needless to say – Celine Dion is very much still alive. She doesn’t even need to use a wheelchair, even though she is still suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome!

Fact #3 : Celine Dion Death Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This is a pretty good Photoshop effort, although you can see how Celine Dion’s dark brown hair suddenly became grey hair. And of course, you have to wonder why Celine Dion would still has her makeup on!

The truth is the fake news created edited the photo of Jan Key – a 65 year-old lady from Kalamazoo, Michigan, who was hit by a car on November 21, 2019.

The photo was taken by her daughter, Kitty Jenkins, on November 26, after Jan Key underwent a second surgery for her broken arm and collarbone. She underwent emergency surgery five days ago to treat her broken leg.

This photo, on the other hand, is a pretty bad Photoshop edit of a photo taken at the August 2018 funeral of Oliver Dragojević – a famous Croatian singer and composer.

To make it look like a Celine Dion funeral, the fake news creator added Lady Gaga appearing to cry, and unbelievably – René Angélil was edited in, with a portrait of Celine Dion magically floating in front of him.

For those who are not aware, René Angélil was Celine Dion’s manager who eventually married her on December 17, 1994. The only problem is – René Angélil died many years ago – on January 14, 2016 from throat cancer!

But I would like to give a special Bad Photoshop award to the fake news creator who came up with this gem.

Not only did he/she use the visage of a smiling Celine Dion, it was stitched on so badly, it’s really, REALLY funny!

Celine Dion, who was supposed to be dying in hospital from a terrible car accident, not only has both her eyes open and smiling, it looked the accident smashed her face sideways!

What a terrible, terrible Photoshop edit! If you are going to cheat people, at least put in some effort!

Fact #4 : Celine Dion Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Celine Dion death hoax is, sadly, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of singer Céline Dion’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the February 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like S’il suffisait d’aimer, My Heart Will Go On or Pour que tu m’aimes encore is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Celine Dion Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Celine Dion’s unnamed rep confirming that she is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Does Pfizer Plan To Make Trillions Off mRNA Turbo Cancer?!

Did an insider reveal that Pfizer plans to make trillions off turbo cancer caused by its mRNA vaccine for COVID-19?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pfizer Plans To Make Trillions Off mRNA Turbo Cancer!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims or suggests that an insider just revealed that Pfizer plans to make trillions off turbo cancer caused by its mRNA vaccine for COVID-19!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Pfizer To Rake In Trillions From Turbo Cancer Deaths, Insider Claims

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO found guilty of vaccine misinformation?!

 

Truth : Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Does Not Cause Turbo Cancer!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist!

Let me start by pointing out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Many cases of cancer go undetected until they become symptomatic. And sometimes, patients ignore those symptoms until they worsen.

Some cancers are also known “silent killers”, because they show no symptoms until they are already in an advanced stage, and have spread to other parts of the body. Such patients often die soon after diagnosis.

Hence, many people that were claimed to have died of turbo cancers were suffering from such “silent killer” cancers, or their cancers were actually diagnosed long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Fact #2 : Mike Yeadon Lost Pfizer Job In 2011

Anti-vaccine activists and articles often label Mike Yeadon (born Michael Yeadon) as a Pfizer insider, or Pfizer’s Vice President and chief scientist. That’s not really true.

For one thing – Mike Yeadon lost his job as a vice-president of Pfizer’s allergy and respiratory research unit in Kent when it was shut down in 2011. So Yeadon is hardly a Pfizer insider, having left the company more than 12 years ago!

On top of that, Mike Yeadon never worked on vaccines. His former Pfizer research unit only developed drugs for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If he had any insight into Pfizer’s “evil plans”, it would have been limited to its asthma and COPD drugs, not COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #3 : Truth Be Told Rally Was Held In January 2023

It is odd that The People’s Voice article should only quote what Mike Yeadon said at the Truth Be Told Rally in London, because that event occurred more than a year earlier – on 21 January 2023!

Why would anyone dig up an old claim to resurrect in February 2024? They must be running out of new material to scare people…

Needless to say – there is still no evidence to back up any of those old claims. Even after more than a year, where is the evidence?

Fact #4 : No Evidence COVID-19 Pandemic Was Planned

According to The People’s Voice article, Mike Yeadon claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned years ago. Neither The People’s Voice, nor Mike Yeadon, have ever provided any evidence to back up those claims.

If Mike Yeadon knew of such a plan as a former Pfizer Vice-President and chief scientist, why did he not reveal this before the COVID-19 pandemic? Why did he only mention this after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared?

He had a good 12 years to announce such a dastardly plan, from the time he lost his job at Pfizer, to the COVID-19 pandemic. If he exposed Pfizer before the COVID-19 pandemic, imagine how many lives he could have saved! So why did he not expose Pfizer earlier?

Fact #5 : Mike Yeadon Never Said Pfizer Plans To Make Trillions Off Turbo Cancer

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that Mike Yeadon was the insider who said that Pfizer plans to make trillions of dollars off turbo cancer caused by the mRNA vaccines.

Not only do mRNA vaccines not cause turbo cancer, it does not appear that Mike Yeadon ever made such claims at the Truth Be Told rally in London last year!

In fact, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that Mike Yeadon ever said anything about turbo cancer, or plans by Pfizer to make trillions of dollars from turbo cancer caused by mRNA vaccines.

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?

Fact #6 : Vaccines Saved Lives + Prevented Depopulation

According to The People’s Voice article, Mike Yeadon claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was a depopulation plot by the globalists. If that is the case, the COVID-19 vaccines have ruined that evil plot, because they have proven to be safe and effective at preventing hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

In fact, the world’s population has continued to increase throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, breaching the 8 billion point in November 2022. It is expected to exceed 8.1 billion people in July – a 0.91% increase from 2023.

In short – there is zero evidence of any depopulation efforts, with the world population increasing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the off-chance that you are worried that COVID-19 or the vaccines are causing a drop in population growth, that has been dropping since its peak in 1963.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Toby Keith Die Suddenly On The Way To Hospital?!

Did country music star Toby Keith just die suddenly on the way to a Los Angeles hospital, or in the hospital, from stomach cancer?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-02-06 : Added Toby Keith’s true death details.
Originally posted @ 2023-06-17

 

Claim : Toby Keith Died Suddenly On The Way To Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube videos claiming to prove that Toby Keith just died suddenly on the way to the hospital from stomach cancer, with titles like :

Heart stopped beating, country singer Toby Keith died of stomach cancer at Los Angeles hospital

5 minutes ago / R.I.P Singer Toby Keith Died on the way to the hospital / Goodbye Toby Keith.

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In A High Speed Car Crash?!

 

Truth : Toby Keith Died At Home After Fighting Cancer!

This is yet another example of fake news created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Toby Keith Died At Home

Toby Keith (born Toby Keith Covel on July 8, 1961) passed away at home on the night of 5 February 2024, surrounded by his family.

He did not die on the way to the hospital, or in a Los Angeles hospital. He died at home in Norman, Oklahoma, where he has a 10,000 square foot home in a sprawling estate.

Those claims were made by fake news creators on YouTube, TikTok, and social media platforms, months and years before he died.

Toby Keith’s death was announced on his official Instagram page, days after he posted a video speaking about how he did an undercover show at the Fillmore club in New York City, as the “Incognito Bandito” band. His publicist, Elaine Schock, also confirmed his death.

Toby Keith also appeared in public on the Bobby Bones Show in early January 2024, speaking about his stomach surgery, and working on his singing. At that time, Toby Keith said that his health was improving.

Toby Keith was 62 years old when he died. He leaves behind his wife, Tricia, and three children – Shelley, Krystal, and Stelen.

Fact #2 : Toby Keith Fought Stomach Cancer

Toby Keith announced in June 2022 that he had been diagnosed with stomach cancer at the end of 2021. He said that he underwent chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery in the past six months since that diagnosis.

Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I’ve spent the last six months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax.

In November 2022, Toby Keith told CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Cody Alan, that he was thinking about getting back to “fightin’ shape” as the cancer treatment was “pretty debilitating”. However, he suggested that everything was looking good.

I’m thinking about getting back to fightin’ shape. I need a little bit of time to just rest up and heal up. It’s pretty debilitating to have to go through all that, but as long as everything stays hunky-dory, then we’ll look at something good in the future.

On June 2, 2023, Toby Keith posted a rare photo of himself to raise awareness for the non-profit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. He looked noticeably thinner, but very much still alive.

Then on July 15, 2023, he posted a video singing at the back of his Uber ride, which had a karaoke machine! He looked much better in this video. By January 2024, he told Bobby Bones that he no longer had “any issues” with his health.

While his family did not announce his cause of death, in all likelihood, Toby Keith died from stomach cancer.

Fact #3 : Toby Keith Hospital Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these fake Toby Keith death videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This photo used to show Toby Keith unconscious and intubated in a hospital bed is actually a photo of Pittsburgh radio DJ, Sean McDowell, who retired from the WDVE station in May 2019.

In August 6, 2019, he posted these photos on Twitter, revealing that a year ago – on August 6, 2018, he had an operation to fix his heart’s mitral valve.

Exactly 1 year ago today, St. Clair Hospital, Dr. Scott Halbreiner sawed thru my sternum, opened my rib cage, fixed my heart (mitral valve) & then wired me shut! Biggest Thanks Ever to Dr. Halbreiner, Dr. Dave Burkey & the nurses in the CVSU! Because of you guys, I’m still here!

Recommended : The Sara Lee Car Accident / Death Video Scam!

This photo of an intubated man lying in a hospital bed is actually a stock photo with a photo ID of 1745351552 on Shutterstock. It was taken on May 20, 2020, with the following description.

DUQUE DE CAXIAS,(BRAZIL),MAY,20,2020: doctors take care of patients with covid-19 and an intensive care unit (ICU) at hospital são josé specialized in the treatment of covid-19

Fact #4 : Toby Keith Death Hoax Was Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Toby Keith death hoax, ironically, was also being driven by another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project.

News of singer Toby Keith’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the January 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like Red Solo Cup, I Love This Bar or Should’ve Been a Cowboy is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Toby Keith Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Toby Keith’s unnamed reps confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

Taylor Swift ‘Murdered a Fan’ In Satanic Blood Ritual To Join Illuminati, Insider Claims

Recommended : Was Brad Pitt Just Found Dead From Suicide?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Taylor Swift Did Not Murder Anyone

Let me start by simply pointing out that there is no evidence Taylor Swift murdered anyone, neither fan or enemy, in order to join the Illuminati.

If there was even a whiff of such a crime, it would have been covered breathlessly by the media all over the world, and the many celebrity blogs. Yet, no legitimate media outlet or celebrity blog mentioned this juicy story?

The People’s Voice certainly offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. Perhaps it will at least lodge a police report and give them the evidence? I won’t hold my breath for that…

Fact #2 : That Photo Was Taken In October 2015

The People’s Voice article and video used a pixelated photo of Taylor Swift with a fan. Was this supposed to be the fan she was alleged to have murdered?

But we know that it can’t possibly be the child Taylor Swift was accused of murdering in 2009, because the photo was taken in October 2015 – some 6 years later!

If that was not the child that Taylor Swift allegedly murdered, then why did they use that photo?

Fact #3 : That Was A Little Girl, Not A Boy

On top of that – that photo does not show Taylor Swift with a little boy. That child is actually a 6 year-old girl called Taylor Rayburn.

Taylor Swift’s mother, Andrea Swift, noticed Taylor Rayburn at Taylor Swift’s concert in Atlanta, Georgia, and invited her to sit together during the show.

After the show, Andrea Swift invited Taylor Rayburn, who was suffering from a rare form of kidney cancer, to meet her daughter for a hug and photo op. Taylor Rayburn’s mother would later post the photos above on Facebook, with the caption:

Thank you Mrs. Andrea and Taylor Swift for making my child’s year! She needed this!

Taylor and her entourage were the sweetest and most humble people. She is just like you see on tv…I think we were all star struck!:)

This is a night she will always remember!! She left saying, ‘I can’t tell if this is a dream or for real!’ So amazing!

Isn’t it disgusting that some people would stoop so low as to use this little girl’s photo to create fake news???

Did Brian Barczyk Die Suddenly From Turbo Cancer?!

Did reptile expert and YouTuber Brian Barczyk die suddenly from turbo cancer?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Brian Barczyk Died Suddenly From Turbo Cancer!

People are sharing a post on X (formerly Twitter), which claims or suggests that reptile expert and YouTuber Brian Barczyk died suddenly from turbo cancer!

Here is an excerpt from the long post, so feel free to skip right to the next section for the facts!

William Makis MD : mRNA injury stories – TikTok & Youtube Reptile Expert Brian Barczyk (age 54) died Jan.15, 2024 from Turbo Pancreatic Cancer – 16 more recent cases of a highly lethal COVID-19 Vaccine Induced Cancer

Recommended : Did Autopsies Show COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Deaths?!

 

Truth : Brian Barczyk Died From Pancreatic Cancer!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Brian Barczyk Died From Pancreatic Cancer!

Brian Barczyk (born Brian Henry Barczyk on 6 September 1969) was an American reptile expert, YouTuber, and founder of the Reptarium Reptile Zoo and LegaSea Aquarium.

He was diagnosed with inoperable Stage 2 pancreatic cancer on 27 February 2023, but it quickly became Stage 4 after chemotherapy failed to cure him.

When he first shared publicly about his pancreatic cancer on 5 March 2023, he pointed out that the survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only 10%. He documented his battle against pancreatic over the next 10 months, and on 5 January 2024, he posted a final, extremely emotional goodbye video.

Brian Barczyk died at his home on Monday, 15 January 2024, after battling pancreatic cancer for some 10 months. He was 54 years old.

Fact #2 : Pancreatic Cancer Is A Silent Killer

Anti-vaccine activists are pointing to the speed at which Brian Barczyk died after his cancer diagnosis, calling it evidence of “turbo cancer” caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

The truth is – pancreatic cancer is an insidious type of cancer that is rarely detected early when it is most curable. It is often called “the silent killer” because most patients do not experience any symptoms until the cancer is already in its advanced stage and has spread to other organs.

By the time people realise that they have pancreatic cancer, it is often too late to cure. That is why the 5-year survival rate is only 12.5%. But in some rare cases, when pancreatic cancer is detected early, patients can live for many years.

US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, for example, was diagnosed with early stage pancreatic cancer in 2009 – many years before COVID-19 vaccines were invented, and survived for more than a decade after undergoing surgery. However, Brian Barczyk was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer, which limited his options early on.

According to the American Society of Cancer, about 50,550 people die from pancreatic cancer every year in the United States. Even though pancreatic cancer only accounts for 3% of all cancers in the United States, it is responsible for 7% of all cancer deaths.

Just to be clear – there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines or any other vaccine can cause pancreatic cancer, or cause it to go “turbo”. Pancreatic cancer is often detected in its late stages, and many patients die soon after diagnosis.

Recommended : Did New Study Show Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Autism?!

Fact #3 : Brian Barczyk Was Fully-Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Brian Barczyk suffered from COVID-19 infections in the past, and was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, as he detailed in his 7 September 2021 video.

However, this does not meant that the COVID-19 vaccines caused his pancreatic cancer, or “turbocharged” it so he died quickly. There is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine causes pancreatic cancer, or causes any cancer to develop faster.

If COVID-19 vaccines cause pancreatic cancer, we would see a surge of pancreatic cancers globally. Yet, there is no evidence of any pancreatic cancer surge.

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

There is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Pancreatic cancer is often detected late, when it has already spread to other organs and is therefore, effectively incurable. Hence, the vast majority of pancreatic cancer patients die soon after their diagnosis.

In addition, Brian Barczyk was only diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in February 2023. There isn’t even a plausible correlation (never mind causation) between his COVID-19 vaccinations in 2021, and his cancer diagnosis almost 2 years later!

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Fact #5 : Brian Barczyk Did Not Age Rapidly From Vaccine

The claim that Brian Barczyk aged rapidly after getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is absolutely bonkers, and easily proven false. Fortunately, Brian was a prolific YouTuber, with thousands of videos.

Anyone who looks at Brian Barczyk’s YouTube channel can see that he did not “age rapidly” after getting vaccinated against COVID-19 in 2021. He only started appearing gaunt and aged after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis in February 2023.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccine Causes Turbo Skin Cancer – Melanoma?!

Fact #5 : Rapid Aging Is Not A Vaccine Side Effect

Aging rapidly is not a “side effect” of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Needless to say, people making such claims offer zero evidence to back up those claims.

Think about it for a second. If rapid aging is a “common side effect” of mRNA vaccines, then many vaccinated people would look like old people right now.

Look around you – do you see rapid aging amongst the vaccinated? No, that’s because it’s utter nonsense.

No Evidence DNA Fragments In mRNA Vaccines Cause Cancer!

Let’s take a closer look at these claims about DNA fragments in mRNA vaccines causing cancer, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Claims Were Made By Joseph Ladapo

First, I should point out that these videos and articles are based on a 3 January 2024 bulletin sent by the Florida Department of Health, in which its Surgeon General Joseph A. Ladapo called for a halt in the use of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines over concerns that they could cause cancer.

The Surgeon General outlined concerns regarding nucleic acid contaminants in the approved Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, particularly in the presence of lipid nanoparticle complexes, and Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoter/enhancer DNA. Lipid nanoparticles are an efficient vehicle for delivery of the mRNA in the COVID-19 vaccines into human cells and may therefore be an equally efficient vehicle for delivering contaminant DNA into human cells. The presence of SV40 promoter/enhancer DNA may also pose a unique and heightened risk of DNA integration into human cells.

Fact #2 : SV40 Promoter Does Not Cause Cancer

Many people are attempting to link the SV40 promoter to the Simian Virus 40, which was suspected to potentially cause cancer in humans after it was found to have contaminated some polio vaccines manufactured from 1955 to 1963.

Decades later, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

Even so, the SV40 promoter is just a DNA fragment from the SV40 virus, that is now used as a genetic tool. It is similar to how botulinum toxin is a treatment derived from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum. The SV40 promoter itself cannot cause cancer, because it does not include the SV40 virus portion that can potentially cause cancer – the T-antigen.

It’s just the volume knob that drives high level expression of anything put under its control, which in this case is just an antibiotic resistance marker.

The fear about the SV40 sequences is total nonsense. The vaccine is not going to cause cancer. There is no cancer causing gene in the vaccine.

– Phillip Buckhaults, director of the Cancer Genetics Lab at the University of South Carolina

Fact #3 : DNA Fragments Not Limited To mRNA Vaccines

So many articles have been written about the residual DNA fragments in mRNA vaccines that one may think that it’s exclusive to the mRNA vaccine technology. That’s not true.

Residual DNA fragments are found in all vaccines and biological products manufactured in any kind of biological cell. The risk of residual DNA has also been investigated for about 60 years now.

To be clear – residual DNA isn’t new or exclusive to mRNA vaccine technology. It is a byproduct of using biological cells to produce biological products.

Fact #4 : DNA Fragments Shown To Be Harmless

In the beginning, some studies raised potential safety issues with residual DNA. So, the FDA set an upper limit of just 10 picograms of residual DNA per medicinal dose in 1985.

In 1986, a WHO study group looked into new cell substrates that are being used to produce biological products, and concluded that the risk is negligible when the amount of residual DNA is 100 picograms per dose.

Then 10 years later – the WHO Expert Committee on Biological Standardization (ECBS) increased the limit to 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, albeit not for microbial, diploid, or primary cell cultures.

In 1997, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that further data of DNA from continuous mammalian cell lines showed that it poses even less risk than previously thought.

Currently, the WHO and US FDA guidelines recommend that residual DNA in vaccines and other biological products should not exceed 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, and the DNA fragments should be no greater than 200 bp in length.

Even that limit appears to be out of an abundance of caution, as studies have not shown any actual danger from residual DNA, as they are tiny fragments.

Fact #5 : DNA Fragments Can’t Integrate With Our Genome

The presence of residual DNA fragments does not mean that they will integrate into our genome. For one thing – these are DNA fragments that have been broken down by the DNase enzyme.

Think of them as parts of a factory which were used to build the mRNA vaccine, but dismantled once the vaccine has been manufactured. Sure, the disposal team may have left a couple of bolts and screws lying on the floor, but can they be used to recreate the factory? No.

In addition, these DNA fragments can only enter the cell nucleus if there is an enzyme called integrase, is not present in any COVID-19 vaccine. So they simply cannot enter the cell nucleus, never mind integrate with DNA.

On top of that, the mRNA vaccines are injected into the muscle, whose cells are “post-mitotic”, which means they are no longer able to change.

Did Daniela Costa Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS?!

Did Spanish actress Daniela Costa die suddenly from mRNA COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Daniela Costa Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Daniela Costa died, some people are claiming or suggesting that the 42 year-old Spanish actress died suddenly from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

William Makis MD : Spanish actress – 42 year old Daniela Costa died suddenly on Dec.14, 2023.

Cause of death not disclosed. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine sudden deaths are at an all time high

#DiedSuddenly #cdnpoli #ableg #Pfizer #Moderna

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Can Worsen Cancer?!

 

Truth : Daniela Costa Did Not Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Daniela Costa Died From Breast Cancer

First, let me just point out that Daniela Costa (born 1981 in Barcelona, Spain) died on 15 December 2023 from breast cancer. She did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine or mRNA vaccine side effect.

It is surprising to see people claiming that a cause of death was not provided. Her husband, Oskar Salcedo, who announced her death on Facebook, clearly stated that she died from breast cancer.

El Amor de mi Vida!!!
Mi querida compañera y madre de nuestro hijo Daniela Costa, nos dejo ayer en este plano físico, para unirse con Dios y el Universo, descansando en Paz!!!
La terrible enfermedad del Cancer de mama pudo con ella!!!

The Love of my Life!!!
My dear companion and mother of our son Daniela Costa, left us yesterday on this physical plane, to join God and the Universe, resting in Peace!!!
The terrible disease of breast cancer took her!!!

Recommended : Did Pamela Villanueva Collapse From Vaccine On Live TV?!

Fact #2 : Breast Cancer Is Deadliest Cancer In Women

According to the Spanish Network of Cancer Registries, breast cancer is the deadliest cancer in women for the year 2020 (PDF), accounting for 15.1% of all cancer deaths in women.

On top of that, Spain has been seeing a yearly increase of 0.9% in breast cancer cases every year, from 2002 to 2020. This yearly increase was seen years before COVID-19 vaccinations started in earnest.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Daniela Coasta Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Daniela Costa was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Spain. In fact, as of May 2023 (source), Spain only fully vaccinated 85.7% of its population, with a further 1.3% receiving only one dose. That means about 13% of Spaniards remain unvaccinated against COVID-19.

On top of that, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless Daniela (or her family) reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Daniela Costa was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Daniela Costa was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago!

She cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Can Worsen Cancer?!

Did a new study show that COVID-19 vaccines can worsen cancer?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccines Can Potentially Worse Cancer!

People are sharing an Epoch Times article which suggests that researchers found many factors linking COVID-19 vaccines to the worsening of cancer.

Here is an excerpt from the Epoch Times article which is long (archive). Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

COVID-19 Vaccines Can Potentially Worsen Cancer: Review

Researchers found many factors within COVID-19 vaccinations that predisposed cancer patients towards a worsening of their condition.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

 

No Evidence COVID-19 Vaccines Can Potentially Worse Cancer!

Let’s take a closer look at the various claims in the Epoch Times article, and the study it referred to, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : It Was A Literature Review

Let me start by pointing out that the study in question was a literature review by Raquel Valdez Angues, and Yolanda Perea Bustos, and can be read in full here (archive).

In other words – the article basically offers an overview of existing research, and therefore, its quality is highly dependent on the research papers it uses.

Fact #2 : Cureus Relies On Post-Publication Peer Review

Even though this paper was marked as “peer-reviewed”, it should be noted that Cureus uses a very fast peer-review process of just “a few days”, and relies heavily on “post-publication peer review”.

As its Editor in Chief John R. Adler explained to Retraction Watch in 2015:

Yes, Cureus has an unusually fast review process, which is an important part of the journal’s philosophy. We believe that post publication peer review, a focus of our journal through commenting and our unique SIQ process, is potentially a more powerful way to discern truth.

In other words – the pre-publication peer review appears to be superficial, and Cureus relies on the scientific community to peer-review the papers after publication.

Fact #3 : Article Did Not Prove Vaccine Link To Cancer

Regardless of whether it was adequately peer-reviewed or not, the Angues and Bustos article itself did not actually prove any link between COVID-19 vaccines and cancer.

The authors themselves referred to “the Multi-Hit Hypothesis“. In science, a hypothesis is not a conclusion, but a proposed explanation that has to be tested to determine if it can be replicated.

Even as a literature review, the paper does not provide any actual evidence that such a hypothesis has ever been replicated by any study. So claims that its authors “found many factors” in COVID-19 vaccines that “predisposed cancer patients towards a worsening of their condition” is misleading, if not outright false.

There is nothing in the article to show such a link. Perhaps that’s why no other researcher has cited this article as of this time.

Recommended : Do mRNA Vaccines Increase Risk Of Illnesses In Children?!

Fact #4 : All Coronaviruses Have Spike Proteins

The key argument that COVID-19 vaccines cause cancer appears to revolve around the idea that the spike protein they produce “have the potential” to create an environment “favorable to cancer progression and/or reactivation of DCCs (dormant cancer cells)”.

Well, if that’s true, then everyone who was ever infected with COVID-19 will risk developing cancer, because the SARS-CoV-2 is completely covered with spike proteins!

In fact, everyone who has ever been infected with any coronavirus, not just SARS-CoV-2, will risk developing cancer because … ALL coronaviruses have spike proteins!

The spike proteins are literally the defining feature of a coronavirus. In fact, the name “coronavirus” is derived from the Latin word, corona, which means “crown” or “wreath” – a reference to its “crown” of spike proteins.

If coronavirus spike proteins can truly cause cancer, we would have seen people developing cancer after a coronavirus infection since time immemorial. Not just during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Fact #5 : Viruses Multiply, Vaccines Won’t

I should also point out that if the spike protein is so dangerous, then it is even more important to get vaccinated against COVID-19. After all, viruses multiply, while the vaccines won’t!

Even if we simply look at the mRNA vaccines alone, they contain a limited number of mRNA instructions that encode for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The mRNA instructions enter a limited number of cells, which then produce and display those spike proteins on their surfaces, to trigger our immune system.

If you are infected by the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus though, it quickly hijacks your cells to produce millions of copies – each covered with spike proteins, which then infect even more cells, in an ever-expanding chain reaction.

Until your immune system learns to stop and defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will keep producing millions and millions of viruses that will circulate through your body, delivering those nasty spike proteins everywhere.

So if you are really worried about the spike protein, you should really get vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #6 : VAERS Reports Are Unverified

The article referred to the “growing evidence and safety reports filed to the Vaccine Adverse Effects Report System (VAERS) suggesting that some cancer patients experienced disease exacerbation or recurrence following COVID-19 vaccination“.

As I pointed out many times before, VAERS data is unverified, and notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. That’s because it’s an open system that anyone – not just doctors, can report anything they want.

In addition, the reports may be duplicated and have not been verified to be related to the vaccine or drug in question. That’s why VAERS specifically warns against using its reports to reach any conclusion about the risks or safety of vaccines / drugs in question.

But that is probably why anti-vaccination activists love using VAERS data – it’s unverified, and very susceptible to abuse and false reporting.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Lymphopenia Was Transient

The article also appears to make a big deal out of lymphopenia caused by COVID-19 vaccines. What it fails to mention is that the lymphopenia (drop in blood lymphocytes) was transient (temporary), and mainly seen with the first dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

By Day 6-8, the lymphocyte levels were back in normal range (source). The drop in lymphocytes was also much smaller with the second dose. None of those who experienced the transient lymphopenia in the Pfizer clinical study had any clinical findings.

What it also failed to mention is that the transient drops in lymphocyte count was expected, because RNA vaccines are known to induce Type I interferon, which is associated with the transient migration (not destruction) of lymphocytes into the tissues (source).

In short – there is zero evidence that a temporary drop in blood lymphocytes because they temporarily migrated into the tissues leads to cancer. In fact, it can be argued that with the risk is potentially lower with more lymphocytes in the tissues.

Fact #8 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Integrate Into Our DNA

The article laughably suggests that “parts of the SARS-CoV-2 genome” might miraculously “undergo reverse-transcription” and be genomically integrated into our cells.

For one thing – mRNA do not require reverse transcription, and are simply used by the ribosomes of our cells to produce proteins. mRNA also cannot enter the cell nucleus, so there is no danger of “genomic integration”. Only viruses like the SARS-CoV-2 virus can integrate their genome into our cell DNA.

Furthermore, normal human cells do not produce the LINE-1 reverse transcriptase enzyme, so it is simply not possible for the mRNA to undergo reverse transcription. Even if that somehow happens, the transcribed DNA cannot enter the cell nucleus without another enzyme called integrase, which is produced by viruses but not normal human cells.

Finally, mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines contain only mRNA instructions for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. Even if they somehow miraculously integrate into the cell DNA, they can at most only produce the spike protein, nothing more.

If you are truly worried about anything modifying your cell’s DNA, you should try to avoid viral infections like COVID-19.

Did Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell Die From Turbo Cancer?!

Did Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell – Honey Boo Boo’s sister – die suddenly from turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell Died From Turbo Cancer!

Right after news broke that Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell died at just 29 years old, anti-vaccine activists immediately claimed or suggested that the reality TV star, and sister of Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thomsondied from turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

All of them were unable to show up on set without being fully vaccinated and providing proof that they were. Get ready to see a lot more of this.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell Did Not Die From Turbo Cancer!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell Died From Adrenal Cancer

Anna Marie ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell (born Anna Marie Shannon on August 28, 1994) was the eldest of Mama June (June Edith Shannon), of the Shannon family fame.

In January 2023, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 adrenal carcinoma, after undergoing tests for her stomachaches. By the time it was discovered, the adrenal carcinoma had already spread (metastasised) to her liver, kidney, and lungs.

After her sister received the devastating diagnosis, Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson posted about how her famous family was really just like any other family suffering from cancer:

This is what I mean when I say you never truly know what somebody is going through at home. No matter how famous they are. Yes, I’m very famous, but normal shit happens to me and my family & y’all need to realize that ASAP

She quickly underwent chemotherapy in February, but it was much too late by then. Just past 11 PM on December 9, 2023, Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell died in her mother’s home. She was just 29 years old, and left behind two daughters – Kaitlyn Elizabeth, and Kylee Madison.

On 11 December 2023, her mother – Mama June – announced her death on Instagram:

With the breaking heart, we are announcing that @annamarie35 is no longer with us. She passed away in my home last night peacefully at 11:12 PM.

She gave one hell of a fight for 10 months she passed away with her family around her like she won’t and we will will be updating y’all with more information as we get it today.

We love y’all and continued prayers and thoughts for our family doing this difficult time #mamajune #prayers #cancersucks #family

Recommended : Did Bruce Willis Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #2 : There Is No Such Thing As Turbo Cancer

There is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Even if, hypothetically, Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell was vaccinated with a carcinogenic COVID-19 vaccine (which does not exist), it will take many months and years before she could conceivably develop cancer of any kind.

It is simply not possible for her to develop adrenal carcinoma right after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine has been found to cause cancer of any kind.

If COVID-19 vaccines cause “turbo” adrenal carcinoma, we would be seeing a surge of adrenal cancers globally. Yet, there has been no evidence of an adrenal carcinoma surge.

Fact #3 : Adrenal Carcinoma Spreads Quickly

Adrenal carcinoma (which is also known as adrenocortical carcinoma) is a relatively rare cancer, affecting about 200 people in the United States every year. It is simply happenstance that Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell is one of those died from adrenal carcinoma this year.

Adrenal carcinoma affects females more than males. But more importantly, it is a “silent killer” – patients do not experience symptoms, or vague symptoms like stomach or back pains.

As endocrinologist and associate professor Amir Hamrahian M.D. from Johns Hopkins Medicine explained, adrenal carcinoma is often diagnosed after presenting with vague symptoms:

Many people find out they have it after their doctor does an imaging test, such as a CT scan, or another reason.

In other patients, adrenal cancer makes abnormally high levels of hormones and causes symptoms such as weight gain or loss, muscle weakness, trouble sleeping or a deepening voice. Women may develop facial hair.

By the time adrenal carcinoma is diagnosed, it has likely already spread / metastasised to other organs in the body, making it much more difficult to treat. That’s probably why the 5-year survival rate is only 50% even in the United States.

The 5-year survival rate for patients who cannot undergo surgery to remove the carcinoma (like Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell) is even lower – just 35%. This isn’t “turbo cancer”. This is just the nature of adrenal carcinoma.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Anna Cardwell Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims / suggestions that Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell was vaccinated against COVID-19, there is no evidence she actually received the COVID-19 vaccine. For all we know – Anna Cardwell may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19!

After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. Many people who suffered sudden death or injuries were found to be unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell was fully-vaccinated is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, she would have received his doses more than two years ago!

She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months or years later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITTdevelop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Why Study Didn’t Prove Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer!

Did a new Belgian study just prove that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes turbo cancer?! Take a look at the claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Claim : New Study Proves Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer!

🚨TurboCancer: New Study proves Pfizer mRNA induced turbo cancer

In a new Belgian study by Sander Eens et al. they injected 14 mice with 2 Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Study Did Not Prove Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Frontiers Was Labelled As Predatory Publisher

First, I think it is important to note that Frontiers Media – the publisher of Frontiers in Oncology, was labelled by Predatory Reports as a predatory publisher in this damning report on March 2023.

This is important to know as predatory publishers are more interested in maximising profits over the quality of the papers they publish. Predatory publishers tend to minimise or eliminate reviews to publish a lot of articles, because they are paid for each article that is published.

Frontiers launched its first journal, Frontiers in Neuroscience, in 2008; since then, it has started more than 50 journals — together harboring more than 400 specialty sections — covering everything from physics and chemistry to computer science and social sciences.

In 2021, Frontiers published over 85,000 articles. An increase of 77% compared to 48,000 in 2020. To date, Frontiers has published more than 280,000 articles and author fees for most types of articles are $1900.

A 13-page manifesto published on 8 May by 31 Frontiers chief editors alleges that Frontiers not only allows authors to “pick their preferred associate editor“, Frontiers staff can even override editorial decisions!

Frontiers staff interfere with editorial decisions, for instance by moving manuscripts from one editor to another to accelerate review, inviting authors to write a commentary without the knowledge of editors, and sometimes “deliberately overriding” editorial decisions.

Recommended : Is Pfizer Vaccine Responsible For Leprosy Cases?!

Fact #2 : Norway Rates Frontiers As “Not Academic”

Since 2018, Frontiers Media has been rated as “level 0” in the Norwegian Scientific Index by the National Publication Committee of Norway, indicating that the publisher is “not academic“.

Fact #3 : It Was A Case Report, Not A Study

Now, the reputation of its publisher aside, let’s take a look at the actual Belgian study that people say proves that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes turbo cancer.

First, let’s start with the fact that it was NOT even a study. It was a “case report” published in Frontiers in Oncology on 1 May 2023.

This was even stated in its title, with my emphasis in bold : B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma following intravenous BNT162b2 mRNA booster in a BALB/c mouse: A case report.

Fact #4 : There Was No Booster Vaccination

The case study confusingly states that the mice were given “booster vaccination”, but from what I can tell – only two doses of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine were given – at 6 weeks and 8 weeks into the experiment.

The Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine is a two-dose mRNA vaccine, taken 21 days apart. The second dose is part of its primary vaccine dose, and is not a booster dose. Only the third and fourth doses are considered “booster vaccinations”.

Recommended : Did CDC Say COVID Vaccines Cause AIDS + Cancer?!

Fact #5 : They Injected Vaccine At Much Higher Doses

To conduct their experiments, the Belgians purchased 28 BALB/c mice, and began their experiment at 12 weeks old of age, which would roughly correspond to a human teenager – 17 years of age.

They split the groups into two – half (n=14) receiving the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, and half (n=14) given normal saline injections (control group). However, it does not appear that the mice were given the appropriate dosage of the Pfizer vaccine.

Human adults and teenagers will receive 30 μg of the Pfizer vaccine in each dose. Given that teenagers have an average weight of 65 kg and a BALB/c mouse weighs about 27 grams, each mice should have received only 0.0125 μg – 1/2400th of the human dose.

Instead, the mice were injected with 6 μg of the Pfizer vaccine – equivalent to 14,400 μg in human dosage, or 480 vaccine doses in one shot.

At the end of this experiment, the mice received 12 μg of the Pfizer vaccine – equivalent to 28,800 μg in human dosage, or 960 vaccine doses in two injections.

Fact #6 : They Injected Vaccine At Large Intervals

Instead of adjusting the vaccine interval to match mice age, they gave the second dose two weeks later – corresponding to about 5.5 human years.

In other words, the mice were given two extremely massive Pfizer vaccine doses at approximately 17 years of human-age, and 22.5 years of human-age.

While the large interval may not matter as much as the massive doses used, it would likely have skewed the experiment results somewhat in human equivalency.

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Fact #6 : They Injected Pfizer Vaccine Wrongly

The Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine is meant to be injected intramuscularly (IM – into the muscle) – commonly into the deltoid muscle of the upper arm. This site was chosen because muscle tissue have a ready pool of dendritic cells that can take up the antigens and spread them to the T and B cells in the lymph nodes.

However, in the Belgian experiment, the Pfizer vaccine was bizarrely injected intravenously (IV – into the vein) – into the tail vein of the mice. The authors admitted this as much in their discussion:

[T]he BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine was administered intravenously and not via the designed intramuscular route of delivery.

Their reasoning was that accidental intravenous injection have occurred, and the IM injection was said to “initiate an adaptive immune response in the lymph nodes”.

Accidents may well have occurred during human vaccinations, but their choice to inject the mice intravenously was no accident. It’s like crash testing a car with the test dummies not wearing a seatbelt because some drivers were reportedly not wearing them, and then saying – look at how terribly unsafe this car is!

And if they believe that the mRNA vaccine would end up in the blood via the lymph nodes even with IM injections, then why bother with the IV injection?

The Pfizer vaccine was never meant to be injected intravenously. Not only is it less effective (bypassing the lymph nodes), and more vulnerable to destruction and degradation, intravenous injection can cause more side effects including inflammation.

Recommended : Did FDA Admit Pfizer Vaccine Causes Blood Clots?!

Fact #7 : Lymphomas Occur Naturally In BALB/c Mice 

Finally, it is important to point out that BALB/c mice are popular in cancer research because they are more susceptible to carcinogenesis, and can spontaneously (naturally) develop lymphomas.

This study, for example, shows that most of the lymphomas that spontaneously developed in BALB/C mice are of the B-cell type – similar to what was seen in the Belgian experiment.

Considering that only one mice (out of 28) developed B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, that would fall within this “baseline” of spontaneously occurring B-cell lymphomas in BALB/c mice.

Hence, the case report does not prove, or even suggest, that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine causes or predisposes to B-cell lymphomas in mice, never mind humans.

Do UK Gov Data Show Cancer Deaths From Vaccine?!

Do UK government data show that young people are dying of turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine at “explosive” rates?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : UK Gov Data Show Explosive Hike In Cancer Deaths From Vaccine!

People are sharing a Children Health Defense article that appears to suggest that UK government data show that young people are dying of turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine at “explosive” rates!

Here is an excerpt from the very long article:

New Report: Young People Dying of Cancer at ‘Explosive’ Rates, UK Government Data Show

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccine Causes Turbo Skin Cancer – Melanoma?!

 

No Evidence UK Gov Data Show Explosive Hike In Cancer Deaths From Vaccine!

Let’s take a look at the claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : It Was Just Statistical Analysis

Firsts, I should just point out that the “study” was just a statistical analysis of data from the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). This is important to note because it does not actually show a correlation between the “excess deaths” caused by cancer, and mRNA vaccines.

Interestingly, the paper itself does not even mention the words “vaccine” or “mRNA” even once! So why would the Children Health Defense article suggest that the paper showed a link between those deaths and mRNA vaccines?

If there are actually increases in cancer deaths after the COVID-19 pandemic, could they not be caused by a lack of screening, laboratory investigations, or patients seeking diagnosis during the lockdowns?

The paper itself certainly offered no evidence linking any of the cancer deaths to the mRNA vaccines, or any COVID-19 vaccine for the matter.

Fact #2 : UK Data Showed No Increase In Cancer Deaths

On top of that, the UK excess mortality data (link) for the last 3 years (October 2020 to October 2023) showed no increase in deaths from all causes of cancer in the United Kingdom.

In fact, the data showed that weekly cancer deaths (dark grey bars) were generally LOWER than expected (dotted purple line). The light grey bars show cancer patients who died from other causes.

Does that mean that the COVID-19 vaccines were somehow protecting people in the UK from cancer deaths? Of course, not. So why should any excess death be attributed to the COVID-19 vaccines? Think about that.

Recommended : 1 In 4 Americans Know Someone Who Died From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Cannot Enter Cell Nucleus

There is zero evidence to back up the claims that mRNA vaccines, or even DNA fragments in those vaccines, can change our DNA.

Let me just point out that messenger RNA (mRNA) cannot enter the nucleus of our cells. Therefore, it cannot possibly change our cell DNA, or deactivate genes that suppress tumours – the basis for claims mRNA vaccines cause turbo cancers.

For that to happen, two things must occur – the mRNA must be “converted” into DNA by a reverse transcriptase enzyme, which does not exist in human cytoplasm (but exists in viruses). Even after that happens, the transcribed DNA cannot enter the cell nucleus without an integrase enzyme (that viruses produce).

Unlike mRNA vaccines, viruses not only insert their genome into our cell nucleus, they literally take over our cells to turn them into virus factories. So anyone who is worried about “alien” RNA / DNA entering our cell nucleus should worry about viruses, instead of mRNA vaccines!

Fact #4 : There Is No Such Thing As Turbo Cancer

There is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Many cases of cancer go undetected until they become symptomatic. And sometimes, patients ignore those symptoms until they worsen.

Some cancers are also known “silent killers”, because they show no symptoms until they are already in an advanced stage, and have spread to other parts of the body. Such patients often die soon after diagnosis.

Hence, many people that were claimed to have died of turbo cancers were suffering from such “silent killer” cancers, or their cancers were actually diagnosed long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Ironically, Kirstie Alley refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Yet, it did not stop people from claiming that she died from turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

COVID-19 Vaccine Causes Turbo Skin Cancer – Melanoma?!

Does the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine cause turbo skin cancer called melanoma?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccine Causes Turbo Skin Cancer – Melanoma!

Anti-vaccine activists are sharing and/or promoting an X (formerly Twitter) post, which claimed / suggested that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine causes turbo skin cancer called melanoma!

NEW ARTICLE: TURBO CANCER – MELANOMA – ages 22 to 35 – COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Turbo Cancer Melanomas are resistant to all new treatments – 20 shocking cases

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

No Evidence COVID-19 Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer / Melanoma

Let’s take a closer look at the claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Photos Were From Years Before COVID-19

First, I should point out that the three shocking photos used in the X post were taken years before the COVID-19 pandemic, and long before the mRNA vaccines were invented.

  • Left photo : Stock photo from 2011 (link)
  • Upper right photo : Malignant Melanoma chapter of the 2014 edition of Clinical Atlas of Skin Tumours (link)
  • Lower right photo : 2011 paper on malignant melanoma metastases (link)

Many thanks to Dr. Eric Burnett, MD and BrainbellJangler for quickly identifying the photos.

Fact #2 : Photos Unrelated To mRNA Vaccine

To be clear – none of the three photos shown show melanoma caused by any vaccine, including the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Left photo : Metastatic melanoma in a white male patient. The caption even states that the “main cause of melanoma is exposure to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.
  • Upper right photo : Cutaneous metastases of melanoma. The number of lesions here may be in the hundreds and some lesions may be grouped as seen here, and the surface of some lesions may be eroded or ulcerated. (link)
  • Lower right photo : Clinical features of local recurrences that are defined as the reappearance of
    melanoma in or contiguous with an excision scar or graft and bearing an in situ component.

Ultimately – those are old photos of metastatic secondaries from malignant melanoma that were not caused by any COVID-19 vaccine, whether using mRNA technology or otherwise.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Those People Were Vaccinated

There is no evidence that any of those people listed in the X post were vaccinated. The creator certainly offered no evidence to back up the claim / suggestion that those people received COVID-19 vaccines, never mind COVID-19 vaccines of the mRNA kind.

If the creator has no evidence that those people who developed melanoma even received an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine in the first place, how does he know that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine caused their melanoma?

Fact #4 : No Increase In Melanoma Deaths

Anyone who checks the CDC Wonder system will quickly discover that there is no increase in melanoma deaths for young people.

I ran the check myself for deaths caused by malignant melanoma, for people who were 20 to 34 years old, and here were the results:

Year Melanoma Deaths
(20-34 years old)
Crude Rate
Per 100K
2018 141 0.2
2019 138 0.2
2020 123 0.2
2021 112 0.2
2022 128 0.2

As you can see, about 130 young people between 20 and 34 years in age die every year in the United States from malignant melanoma. That’s a crude rate of 0.2 per 100,000 people.

The total number of young people dying from malignant melanoma actually DROPPED in 2021 and 2022 – after the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced. Does that mean that the COVID-19 vaccines actually protect against melanoma?

Of course, not! But the CDC Wonder statistics definitely show that there has been no increase in deaths from melanoma since the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced.

Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Are residual DNA impurities in mRNA vaccines dangerous, and can they integrate into our DNA?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Are Dangerous!

Anti-vaccine activists are sharing and/or promoting an article by The Epoch Times, which claimed / suggested that residual DNA in mRNA vaccines are dangerous, and can potentially integrate into our DNA! Here is an excerpt:

Billions of Copies of Residual DNA in a Single Dose of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine: Preprint

Recommended : Are mRNA Vaccines Contaminated With SV40 DNA?!

 

No Evidence Residual DNA In Vaccines Are Dangerous

Let’s take a closer look at these claims about Residual DNA in vaccines, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : mRNA Vaccines Were Proven Safe + Effective

First, I should point out that the mRNA vaccines underwent large clinical trials before they received their Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), and even after that, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

So health regulators and health authorities are well-aware of how safe and effective the mRNA vaccines are. That’s why new mRNA vaccines continue to be approved by health regulators around the world.

Fact #2 : Residual DNA Is Not New

These papers and articles may suggest that residual DNA is a new kind of contaminant, or one that is only found in mRNA vaccines. Neither are true.

Residual DNA is found in all vaccines and biological products manufactured in any kind of cell. The risk of residual DNA has also been investigated for about 60 years now.

To be clear – residual DNA isn’t new, and it is a byproduct of using cells to produce biologicals, and not part of mRNA vaccine technology.

Recommended : mRNA Vaccines Created Spike Protein In Human Heart?!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Residual DNA Is Dangerous

In the beginning, some studies raised potential safety issues with residual DNA. So, the FDA set an upper limit of just 10 picograms of residual DNA per medicinal dose in 1985.

In 1986, a WHO study group looked into new cell substrates that are being used to produce biological products, and concluded that the risk is negligible when the amount of residual DNA is 100 picograms per dose.

Then 10 years later – the WHO Expert Committee on Biological Standardization (ECBS) increased the limit to 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, albeit not for microbial, diploid, or primary cell cultures.

In 1997, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said that further data of DNA from continuous mammalian cell lines showed that it poses even less risk than previously thought.

Currently, the WHO and US FDA guidelines recommend that residual DNA in vaccines and other biological products should not exceed 10 nanograms (ng) per purified dose, and the DNA fragments should be no greater than 200 bp in length.

Even that limit appears to be out of an abundance of caution, as studies have not shown any actual danger from residual DNA, as they are tiny fragments.

Fact #4 : Residual DNA Is Fragmented Into Tiny Pieces

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

In other words – the DNA used to produce the mRNA vaccines are broken into tiny pieces, and most of it is filtered out. Think of the remnants as pieces of scrap metal left over from a dismantled chemical factory.

Sure, the workers left a ton of scrap metal pieces behind, but so what? The scrap metal may be an eyesore, but it’s not going to give you cancer, or turn you into Spiderman!

In short – there is no evidence that these tiny fragments of DNA will integrate into your genome, or cause your cells to become cancerous.

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The David J Speicher et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed) actually showed that the amount of residual DNA “contamination” was far below FDA regulatory limits.

As Professor David Gorski noted, the study authors found that the residual DNA in the mRNA vaccines was far below regulatory limits, and used a logarithmic scale to make them appear much closer to the limit than they really are:

Basically, by the authors’ own measurements, the amount of DNA/vial fell below the FDA guidance of 10 ng DNA/dose.

Did you also notice the little trick they did? They used a log scale to make the total DNA appear to be much closer to the FDA-recommended limit than it really is.

For instance, in all the Moderna vials, the amount of DNA isn’t half of the recommended limit, it’s less than one-tenth the recommended limit, and, in the case of the ori sequence, well under 1/100 of the limit.

The abstract itself even notes that the authors found DNA at “0.28 – 4.27 ng/dose and 0.22 – 2.43 ng/dose (Pfizer), and 0.01 -0.34 ng/dose and 0.25 – 0.78 ng/dose (Moderna), for ori and spike respectively measured by qPCR.”

So, from McKernan and Rose’s own data, the vial with the very highest concentration of DNA was one Pfizer vial that had less than one-half the maximum DNA amount recommended by the FDA, while the Moderna vial with the most plasmid DNA contamination had less than one-tenth the maximum recommended by the FDA.

In short – even the much touted Speicher preprint itself showed that the amount of residual DNA in mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far below regulatory limits.

The whole controversy is really much ado about nothing. What a bloody waste of time!

Perhaps that’s why they are repackaging the drama in terms of “billions of copies of residual DNA”, instead of just telling us about the actual quantity they found.

The truth is – there are billions of fragments because the DNA was chopped up pretty damn small to ensure that it would pose no threat. And because the fragments so small, it’s pretty impossible to filter them all out.

Recommended : Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

Fact #6 : VAERS Reports Are Unverified

Hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint suggested that mRNA vaccine vials with higher doses of residual DNA correlated with more adverse reactions, as reported in the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reports System (VAERS).

As I pointed out many times before, VAERS data is unverified, and notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. That’s because it’s an open system that anyone – not just doctors, can report anything they want.

In addition, the reports may be duplicated and have not been verified to be related to the vaccine or drug in question. Hence, VAERS specifically warns against using its reports to reach any conclusion about the risks or safety of vaccines / drugs in question.

But that is precisely why anti-vaccination activists love using VAERS data – it’s unverified, and very susceptible to abuse and false reporting.

Fact #7 : Study Showed Fewer Adverse Events With More DNA Fragments!

Even more hilariously, the Speicher et al. preprint actually showed that the detection of more DNA fragments (as determined by Qubit fluorometry) correlated with fewer serious adverse events (SAEs).

In other words – this study has inadvertently “proven” that getting mRNA vaccines with more residual DNA will result in fewer adverse effects!

I meant that only in jest, because the study simply does not prove any correlation. It’s just asinine to even attempt to correlate unverified VAERS reports with quantity of residual DNA fragments in any vaccine.

Chuck Callesto : BREAKING REPORT: Pfizer accused of NOT DISCLOSING the presence of the Simian Virus 40 [SV40] DNA sequence in its mRNA COV-D-19 vaccine.

The complete SV40 virus was ELIMINATED from Polio vaccines during the 1950s and 1960s because of concerns about its association with CANCER.

Recommended : Did Health Canada Confirm SV40 DNA In Pfizer Vaccine?!

 

Truth : mRNA Vaccines Are Not Contaminated With SV40 DNA!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / propagated by anti-vaccine proponents, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : SV40 Promoter Is Not SV40 Virus

First, I should point out that gene promoters are DNA sequences that stimulate gene expression, and have long been used in molecular biology.

The SV40 promoter is a DNA sequence that was derived from the SV40 (Simian Virus 40) virus, and is not the same thing as the SV40 virus DNA. Think of it as a genetic tool obtained from the SV40 virus, just like how botulinum toxin is a treatment derived from the bacteria, Clostridium botulinum.

Finding botulinum toxin in a vial of Botox does not mean there is bacteria in that vial. Similarly, finding the SV40 promoter in the Pfizer vaccine does not mean there is SV40 virus in the vaccine.

According to Professor David Gorski, a professor of surgery and oncology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, “the SV40 promoter-enhancer is often used in plasmids because it is a very strong promoter that can drive the production of lots of the desired mRNA encoded by the cDNA sequence attached to it.

Fact #2 : SV40 Promoter Is Not Dangerous

Michael Imperiale, a molecular biologist at the University of Michigan Medical School, explained that the SV40 promoter, on its own, can’t cause cancer. The part of SV40 that’s potentially cancer-causing, known as the T-antigen, isn’t present in the vaccine.

Even the scientist whose testimony to the South Carolina Senate has been used to drive this controversy, has come out to dismiss the concerns that the SV40 promoter is dangerous, or can cause cancer:

It’s just the volume knob that drives high level expression of anything put under its control, which in this case is just an antibiotic resistance marker.

The fear about the SV40 sequences is total nonsense. The vaccine is not going to cause cancer. There is no cancer causing gene in the vaccine.

– Phillip Buckhaults, director of the Cancer Genetics Lab at the University of South Carolina

Fact #3 : mRNA Vaccines Are Not Contaminated With SV40 Virus

To be clear – mRNA vaccines do not contain the SV40 virus, because they were manufactured using in vitro transcription (IVT) technology.

The presence of the SV40 virus in some of the polio vaccine manufactured from 1955-1963 occurred because that vaccine was manufactured in monkey kidney cell cultures that were contaminated with the SV40 virus.

Even then, decades later, there is still no conclusive evidence that the SV40 virus can cause cancers in humans. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SV40 virus is considered to potentially cause cancer in humans.

There is no evidence to indicate the presence of SV40, a virus found in monkey kidneys that can potentially cause cancer in humans, in the formulation of COVID-19 vaccines.

– Alessandro Faia, spokesperson for the European Medicines Agency (EMA)

Recommended : Is FDA Refusing To Release Vaccine Myocarditis Results?!

Fact #4 : Health Canada + EMA Confirm Residual DNA Meet Regulations

Health Canada actually wrote a detailed explanation (archive) of why DNA fragments are expected in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, and why the quantity in the vaccines is not a concern.

Plasmids are an essential starting material for the production of mRNA vaccines. During the downstream process in mRNA vaccine manufacturing, the plasmid DNA is digested with enzymes to small fragments, and further removed to a level of not more than 10 ng/human dose, which is in line with the World Health Organization’s recommendation concerning residual DNA in biological drugs. The DNA is digested with enzymes post-transcription.

Health Canada was aware of the presence of residual plasmid DNA as a process-related impurity during review and prior to the authorization of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, the release testing data for every COVID-19 vaccine lot released into the Canadian market were reviewed and deemed to meet the requirements approved by Health Canada. Furthermore, different assays assessing the same vaccine property, or even the same assay being performed in different laboratories, may generate different results.

It is important to assess the results using the authorized validated assays performed by the vaccine manufacturers to ensure that the quality of commercial vaccine lots are comparable to lots shown to be safe and efficacious in clinical studies.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also concurred, stating that the SV40 sequence is considered “a non-functional part” of the DNA plasmid that was used to manufacture the mRNA vaccines:

We can confirm that an SV40 sequence is present in the DNA plasmid. The sequence is not directly relevant for plasmid production in E. coli or for the mRNA production process so it is considered to be a non-functional part of the structure of the source plasmid.

Specific sequences for the non-infectious parts of SV40 are commonly present in plasmids used for manufacturing of biological active substances. The sequence for non-infectious parts of SV40 is only a small fraction of the entire SV40 sequence.

While the full DNA sequence of the plasmid starting material was provided in the initial marketing authorisation application for Comirnaty, the applicant did not specifically highlight the SV40 sequence, as it was considered to be a non-functional part of the plasmid. They have since clarified this information in response to questions raised by EMA.

We would also like to point out that during the manufacturing process, this sequence and other plasmid DNA sequences are broken down and removed. Fragments of the SV40 sequence may only be present as residual impurities at very low levels that are routinely controlled.

In short – the mRNA vaccines meet regulatory limits for residual DNA. This isn’t new or shocking to Health Canada, or the EMA, or other regulatory agencies.

Fact #5 : mRNA Vaccines Meet Residual DNA Limits

The production of mRNA vaccines at scale do not use any animal cells, but is done through in vitro transcription (IVT). The enzyme DNase is then used to destroy the DNA template and polymerase used in the reaction, and further filtration can be performed to reduce the amount of DNA fragments.

In Canada, the limit was set at 10 ng of DNA per dose, which is in line with WHO recommendations. According to Health Canada, the mRNA vaccines all comply with this requirement.

The David J Speicher et al. preprint (which has not yet peer-reviewed) actually showed that the amount of residual DNA “contamination” was far below FDA regulatory limits.

As Professor David Gorski noted, the study authors found that the residual DNA in the mRNA vaccines was far below regulatory limits, and used a logarithmic scale to make them appear much closer to the limit than they really are:

Basically, by the authors’ own measurements, the amount of DNA/vial fell below the FDA guidance of 10 ng DNA/dose.

So, from McKernan and Rose’s own data, the vial with the very highest concentration of DNA was one Pfizer vial that had less than one-half the maximum DNA amount recommended by the FDA, while the Moderna vial with the most plasmid DNA contamination had less than one-tenth the maximum recommended by the FDA.

The whole controversy is really much ado about nothing. What a bloody waste of time!

Fact #6 : Residual DNA Won’t Integrate Into Our Genome

The presence of residual DNA itself does not mean that they will integrate into our genome. For one thing – these are DNA fragments that have been broken down by the DNase enzyme.

Think of them as parts of a factory which were used to build the mRNA vaccine, but dismantled once the vaccine has been manufactured. Sure, the disposal team may have left a couple of bolts and screws lying on the floor, but can they be used to recreate the factory? No.

To be clear – neither the COVID-19 vaccines, not any residual DNA they may contain, can change our genome. On top of that, the vaccines are injected into the muscle, whose cells are “post-mitotic”, which means they are no longer able to change.

Truth : Morgan Freeman Did NOT Die Suddenly From Cancer!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death

These YouTube and Facebook videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported Morgan Freeman’s death.

Morgan Freeman is such a Hollywood legend, his death would have been covered globally by the media and celebrity blogs.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, nor celebrity blog, has reported that Morgan Freeman died recently from any cause. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / Facebook videos?

Fact #2 : Morgan Freeman Is Still Alive + Well!

Morgan Freeman (born June 1, 1937) is still very much alive and well, as of September 29, 2023, when he last posted on Instagram and Twitter about the documentary Life on Our Planet which he narrated!

On 2 August 2023, he even visited the Pentagon, to talk with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin, on his upcoming documentary about an all-Black tank unit that fought in Europe during World War II – the 761st Tank Battalion.

All those posts came many days to weeks after those YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that he died suddenly from cancer, or some other cause of death.

Fact #3 : The Videos Provided No Evidence For His Death

To generate ad money, the videos must engage you long enough, so they come up with some story that Morgan Freeman was suffering from a “dangerous disease” or a “stroke” or “cancer”, and they drag out the video with details about Morgan Freeman’s life.

In any case, after watching the videos, you will realise that none of them offered any evidence that Morgan Freeman died from cancer or any disease.

That may anger you, but it doesn’t matter. They got you to watch the video, and generate income for them. And they know that most people will not realise that, and forward the fake news to their family and friends!

Fact #4 : They Edited Real Photos

To make their videos more convincing, these fake video creators add faces of celebrities like Chris Tucker and Will Smith to the fake Morgan Freeman funeral photos.

Take for example, this photo of Chris Tucker and Will Smith apparently carrying Morgan Freeman’s coffin. Not only do their heads look ridiculously large, their faces look much sharper and are more vibrant in colour than the rest of the photo.

That’s because the fake news creator use the funeral photo of Fairgrounds Holdings CEO Michael Montshiwa, who was murdered in Botswana in 2016. The fake news creator had to make the heads of Chris Tucker and Will Smith larger to cover up the faces of the real men in the real photo.

The fake news creator also added a framed photo of Morgan Freeman. In the real photo, you can see that the coffin does not have a framed photo hanging from the front.

I should give special mention to this “terrifically photoshopped” photo, which shows Morgan Freeman smiling in his casket!

The fake news creator overlaid a photo of Morgan Freeman’s over the photo of the high chief of Ngardmau Palau, Beouch Sakaziro. The photo was taken by his children, and posted on Facebook and Wikipedia in 2011.

Fact #5 : Morgan Freeman Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Morgan Freeman death hoax, ironically, is also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of actor Morgan Freeman’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the October 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in Invictus, Bruce Almighty or Driving Miss Daisy is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Morgan Freeman Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Morgan Freeman’s unnamed reps confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #6 : This Is Just Fake Celebrity News

This is yet another example of fake celebrity news created to generate page views and money through advertising, just like these examples:

Yasuhiro Sonoda Died After Drinking Fukushima Water?!

Did former Japanese MP Yasuhiro Sonoda die from cancer, after drinking treated radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power station?!

Claim : Yasuhiro Sonoda Died After Drinking Fukushima Water!

People are sharing videos and photos of Yasuhiro Sonoda drinking ALPS-filtered water from the Fukushima nuclear power station in WhatsApp groups and social media, claiming that the former Japanese MP eventually died from cancer!

How is Yasuhiro Sonoda, a Japanese official who drank nuclear-contaminated water 12 years ago, now? Why did he disappear?

At the end of October 2011, Yasuhiro Sonoda, the then Japanese cabinet minister, poured half a glass of water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in front of media reporters in order to prove that the treated Fukushima nuclear-contaminated water was “drinkable and no problem”. The treated nuclear-contaminated water of Units 5 and 6 was “drinked twice.”

In December 2014, Yasuhiro Sonoda’s social platform stopped updating; in June 2015 , Sonoda Yasuhiro announced his retirement; at the beginning of 2018, Japanese media said that Sonoda Yasuhiro had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma; in August 2020, Sonoda Yasuhiro died of illness in Melekeok, the capital of Palau.

Truth : Yasuhiro Sonoda Did Not Die After Drinking Fukushima Water!

This appears to be another example of FAKE NEWS created and/or shared by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens, to scare people into boycotting Japan and Japanese food, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Yasuhiro Sonoda Drank Fukushima Water In 2011

First, let me just give you a quick overview of Yasuhiro Sonoda and why he became viral in 2023.

Born on June 9, 1967, Yasuhiro Sonoda (園田 康博 / そのだ やすひろ) was elected to the House of Representatives in the Diet (Japanese Parliament) in 2003, as a member of the Democratic Party of Japan.

After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the 44 year-old MP sought to ease concerns over the safety of the treated water. In response to a challenge by freelance journalist Yu Terasawa, he promised to drink the treated waste water.

I don’t want it to be seen as some kind of performance, but if that’s the best way to prove that the water is safe then I would gladly drink it right here, in front of you, any time.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) prepared a bottle of water from Fukushima Daiichi reactors no. 5 and no. 6, which was filtered and treated using its Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS) to remove 62 radionuclides from the contaminated water.

Then, at an October 31, 2011 press conference, Yasuhiro Sonoda filled a glass with the ALPS-treated water before polishing it off in two gulps. Even so, he pointed out that the data was more important than the demonstration:

I am aware that just drinking [the treated water] doesn’t in itself mean that safety has been confirmed. The best way to do that is to present data to the public.

Recommended : Fukushima Radioactive Water : What Makes It Different?

Fact #2 : Yasuhiro Sonoda Retired From Politics

The viral messages suggested something nefarious after Yasuhiro Sonoda stopped posting on his Twitter account in 2014. The truth is – he stopped tweeting after he lost elections for the second time.

After that infamous demonstration, Yasuhiro Sonoda lost his seat during the 46th House of Representatives election on December 16, 2012. He subsequently lost again in the 47th House of Representatives election on December 14, 2014.

His last Twitter post was on the night before he lost his election, showing a video of his last campaign speech on December 13.

The Mainichi Shimbun newspaper would later publish a news article (no longer available online) on June 14, 2015, stating that Yasuhiru Sonoda announced his withdrawal from politics.

Fact #3 : Yasuhiro Sonoda Is Still Alive!

After leaving politics in June 2015, Yasuhiro Sonoda receded from the limelight. However, there is no evidence he is dead.

As a former Member of Parliament, his death would have been announced by the Japanese media. Yet, there is no mention of his passing. The viral messages certainly offered no evidence to back up their claims.

But more importantly, Kyodo News reached out to Yasuhiro Sonoda himself via telephone on 2 September 2023, and confirmed that he is still alive! Mr. Sonoda denied that he died from cancer.

Sonoda said, “I would like to once again apologize to those who experienced the earthquake and the people of Fukushima Prefecture,” regarding the spread of false rumors caused by his actions at the time.

園田氏は当時の自身の行動がきっかけでデマが広がったことについて「震災を経験された人や福島県の人にあらためておわびしたい」と語った。

Fact #4 : No Evidence Yasuhiro Sonoda Has Multiple Myeloma

There is also no evidence that Yasuhiro Sonoda was diagnosed with multiple myeloma – a type of white blood cell cancer.

There has been no media report of such a diagnosis. Neither did Yasuhiro Sonoda mention it publicly. In fact, the viral messages also offered no evidence to back up this claim.

Unless Yasuhiro Sonoda or his family publicly reveals that he is suffering from multiple myeloma, or any kind of cancer for the matter, anyone who says that is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Yasuhiro Sonoda Was ACD CEO

Yasuhiro Sonoda kept a low profile after leaving politics. However, Taiwanese fact checking website, MyGoPen, discovered that Yasuhiro Sonoda became CEO and the company’s first Representative Director of ACD. Co. Ltd. in March 2018.

ACD Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of the Japanese airlines, ANA (All Nippon Airways), which focuses on the cross-border e-commerce platform called ANA Overseas Shopping. This was confirmed by a June 17, 2019 CoinON interview with Sonoda as ACD CEO.

It is unlikely for him to be appointed both CEO and the first Representative Director of ACD if he was already dying from multiple myeloma in 2018.

Fact #6 : Yasuhiro Sonoda Retired From ACD In 2020

It appears that the claim that Yasuhiro Sonoda went to Palau at the end of 2019 for palliative care is false. He was still CEO of ACD Co., Ltd until his retirement on 14 March 2020.

On 1 November 2020, ACD Co., Ltd. issued a press release announcing that Yasuhiro Sonoda retired as Representative Director and President on 14 March 2020, and was replaced by Hiromichi Furui.

The fact that ACD announced his retirement in November 2020 also suggests that Yasuhiro Sonoda was still alive at that time. The viral message claimed that he died in August 2020.

Fact #7 : Palau Never Announced Yasuhiro Sonoda’s Death

There is no evidence that the Bureau of Health for the Republic of Palau ever announced the 2020 death of Yasuhiro Sonoda from multiple myeloma.

A quick check of the Palau National Government website showed no such announcement about the death of Yasuhiro Sonoda.

The websites promoting this claim did not provide a link to the announcement. Suspicious, isn’t it?

Fact #8 : Ngerulmud Is The Capital Of Palau

I should point out that Melekeok is a state, and not the capital of Palau. The capital of Palau is Ngerulmud. Before 2006, the capital of Palau was Koror City.

Fact #9 : MIT Does Not Have A Hospital / Medical School

MIT – the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is one of the top private universities in the United States, with five schools in Science, Engineering, Architecture and Planning, Management, and Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.

MIT, however, does not have any schools of law or medicine. It also does not run any hospitals. Therefore, it is impossible for Yasuhiro Sonoda to seek medical treatment at the MIT Medical School, or the MIT Hospital as claimed.

Fact #10 : This Is Just Fake News About Fukushima

There is no doubt that Japan is facing a LOT of criticism over its release of the Fukushima waste water, even though IAEA and many experts have endorsed the plan.

Japan MP Sonoda Still Alive After Drinking Fukushima Water!

Former Japanese MP Yasuhiro Sonoda did not die from cancer, and is still alive, after drinking ALPS-filtered water from the Fukushima nuclear power station!

 

Claim : Japan MP Sonoda Died After Drinking Fukushima Water!

People are sharing videos and photos of Yasuhiro Sonoda drinking the treated Fukushima waste water in WhatsApp groups and social media, claiming that the former Japanese MP eventually died from cancer!

How is Yasuhiro Sonoda, a Japanese official who drank nuclear-contaminated water 12 years ago, now? Why did he disappear?

At the end of October 2011, Yasuhiro Sonoda, the then Japanese cabinet minister, poured half a glass of water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in front of media reporters in order to prove that the treated Fukushima nuclear-contaminated water was “drinkable and no problem”.

JERRY GOODE : 🚨☢️ 🇯🇵: Japan MP Yasuhiro Sonoda’s hands shook as he downed a glass of Fukushima Nuclear Contaminated Water in front of reporters and cameras.  NOW HE IS MISSING!  What happened to him?💀

Finally solved the case, Yasuhiro Sonoda is dead, died of multiple myeloma in 2020.

In June 2015, Yasuhiro Sonoda announced his retirement.
Early 2018. Due to physical discomfort, got checked up in Japan, and diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
At the end of 2018, he received treatment at MIT Medical School in the United States, but failed.
At the end of 2019, he went to Palau to recuperate (waiting to die).
In August 2020, he died in Melekeok, the capital of Palau, due to multiple myeloma and his whole body decomposed.

[/su_expand]

INF.News : …many years later, the Health Bureau of the Republic of Palau announced a regrettable news: Yasuhiro Sonoda passed away in Palau in 2020 due to his body gradually decomposing due to multiple myeloma.

Why did the Republic of Palau choose to announce such news at such a critical time when Japan discharged nuclear wastewater into the sea? The answer is actually quite simple: Protest.

The Republic of Palau chose to announce the death of Yasuhiro Sonoda at this critical moment, not only to express their dissatisfaction with the Japanese government, but also to alert the global community to the risks associated with nuclear energy.

Does Your Car Have Cancer-Causing Benzene?!

Do you have to drive with the windows down, because your car is full of cancer-causing benzene?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Your Car Is Killing You With Cancer-Causing Benzene!

This message keep going viral on WhatsApp, and social media platforms, claiming that our cars are full of cancer-causing benzene! It’s really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

😳🔴C A U T I O N🔴😳

🚙 🚘 🚗 🚖 🚕
🔈 This msg from Dr Syed Badar Husain, renowned neurologist in Atlanta:

Plz circulate🔜

Recommended : Why You Should NEVER Wear Gloves At Gas / Petrol Station!

 

Truth : Your Car Is Not Killing You With Benzene!

This appears to be yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : This Is Very Old Fake News

First, I should point out that this isn’t a new viral message. This message first appeared in chain letters sent by email sometime in 2009. It then migrated to social media platforms and instant messengers over time.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Dr. Badar Wrote It

There appears to be a neurologist called Dr. Badar Husain Syed, but he is based in Snellville, Georgia, not Atlanta; and he specialises in Sleep Medicine. There is no evidence Dr. Syed ever wrote that viral message.

Fact #3 : Benzene Has Been Linked With Cancer

Benzene is a colourless, volatile chemical with a sweet odour, that is commonly used in many industries. It is found in everything from plastics to lubricants, rubbers, cigarettes, detergents, drugs, pesticides, and even petrol / gasoline.

Studies have shown that exposure to high levels of benzene is associated with increased risk of developing leukaemia. However, it does not appear to be associated with other types of cancer.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies benzene as “carcinogenic to humans”. The US EPA also classifies benzene as “a known human carcinogen”.

Recommended : Did BMW MINI Give Ice-Cream Only To Foreigners In China?!

Fact #4 : American Cancer Society Called It Fake

In 2011, the American Cancer Society (ACS) addressed the viral message, and called it fake news.

We found no published studies that confirm the claims of this e-mail. Benzene levels that exceed recommendations for chronic workplace exposure have been observed in some moving cars, but these levels seem unlikely in properly maintained cars.

Fact #5 : 2007 German Study Disproved Claim

In 2007, the American Chemical Society published a German study called “Toxicity of Parked Motor Vehicle Indoor Air“, which looked at “the health effects of emissions from vehicles exposed to “parked in sunshine” conditions“.

The researchers exposed a new car, as well as a 3 year-old car with identical interior to 14,000 watts of light, and then analysed their indoor air. They found that both cars produced different kinds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs):

Vehicle Age Major VOCs
New Car o,m,p-xylenes, C3 and C4-alkylbenzenes,
dodecane, tridecane, methylpyrrolidinone
3 yo Car acetone, methylpyrrolidinone,
methylcyclohexane, acetaldehyde,
o,m,p-xylenes, ethylhexanol, toluene

Interestingly, the study did not find any significant amount of benzene inside both cars, despite subjecting them to intense levels of light and heat.

The study also found that the indoor air of both cars do not pose apparent health hazards. The amounts of VOCs present in the indoor air collected also did not appear to pose any carcinogenic risk.

No toxicity was observed in any cell line with or without metabolic activation. Neither did we find an effect on type IV sensitization or an irritative potential.

A slight but statistically significant aggravating effect on IgE-mediated immune response of only the new vehicle indoor air was determined (p < 0.05). The IgE-response modulating effect of indoor air might be relevant for atopic individuals.

Else no direct toxicity, no toxicity after metabolic activation by cytochrome P450, and no irritative or type IV sensitizing potential of motor vehicle indoor air were found, neither from the new nor used vehicle. Our investigations indicated no apparent health hazard of parked motor vehicle indoor air.

Fact #6 : Biggest Benzene Risk Are From Other Causes

Benzene is so commonly used in many products that it is simply impossible to avoid exposure completely. But your car’s indoor air is really the least of your worries, if at all.

Workplace exposure to benzene is a major risk, which is why benzene exposure is heavily regulated at the workplace. Even so, workers in the rubber industry, oil-related industries (including refineries and petrol stations), chemical plants, shoe manufacturers, steel workers, lab technicians and firefighters have increased exposure to benzene.

Outside of the workplace, people are most exposed to benzene from vehicle exhaust fumes, fumes and wastewater from nearby factories, petrol stations, etc. Many people are also exposed to benzene from smoking cigarettes, or second-hand smoke.

To limit your exposure to benzene, American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends doing the following:

Stay away from cigarette smoke. If you are person who smokes, try to quit. It’s also important to avoid secondhand smoke. Cigarette smoke is a major source of benzene exposure.

Pump gas carefully and use gas stations with vapor recovery systems that capture the fumes. Avoid skin contact with gasoline.

When possible, limit the time you spend near idling car engines. This can help lower your exposure to exhaust fumes, which contain benzene (as well as other potentially harmful chemicals).

Use common sense around any chemicals that might contain benzene. Limit or avoid exposure to fumes from solvents, paints, and art supplies, especially in unventilated spaces.

If you are exposed to benzene at your workplace, talk to your employer about limiting your exposure through process changes (such as replacing the benzene with another solvent or enclosing the benzene source) or by using personal protective equipment. If needed, you can also contact the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), which can provide more information or assistance.

Notice how the ACS did not mention driving with your car windows down? Or “flushing” the air inside your car before driving? That’s because there is simply no evidence that there is significant amounts of benzene inside your car.

This is very serious considering 4 pilots passed away and they looked young and healthy. Chances are that they vaccineted at almost the same time.
This is very serious without the slightest doubt. Considering the spike in overall death in Singapore in the month of May 2023!
Ong Ye Kung and Iswaran care to shed some light???
The public want to know the reasons…. 4th jab at the same time as demanded by SIA?
Don’t just be obvious. Period…

No Evidence SIA Pilots Died From Vaccine In May!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all sudden deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Their Cause Of Death Are Unknown

First, let me just confirm that there are indeed at least four SIA pilots who died in the month of May 2023, based on their obituaries:

However, none of their obituaries mentioned their individual cause of death. They also do not appear to have any social media accounts, or families posting about their deaths on social media.

Random netizens are claiming that Captains Wee Leong and Colin Tan died suddenly from cardiac arrest, while Captains Fernando Cid and Sebastian Tan died from cancer. It is unknown if any of those causes of death are accurate.

Until and unless Singapore Airlines, or the families of the four pilots, publicly announce their individual cause of death, anyone who tells you that the four SIA pilots died of this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : No Evidence SIA Requires 4th COVID-19 Vaccine Dose

In January 2021, Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that it hopes to become the world’s first airline to vaccinated all of its crew members against COVID-19.

SIA set a deadline of September 1, and managed to vaccinate 99% of its active pilots, cabin crew and frontline ground crew by 19 August 2021.

However, there is no evidence that Singapore Airlines recently demanded that its pilots and cabin crew get the fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose, which would be their second booster dose.

As of 31 May 2023,  the Singapore Ministry of Health only recommends that senior citizens and medically vulnerable people receive the fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose. Even then, it is a “recommendation”, not a requirement.

It is unlikely for Singapore Airlines to mandate a fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose, when the Singapore Ministry of Health does not recommend it for healthy young or middle-aged adults.

Until and unless Singapore Airlines, or the families of the four pilots, confirm it, anyone who tells you that the four SIA pilots received the fourth COVID-19 vaccine dose is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : SIA Had Approximately 3,000 Pilots In 2022

In May 2022 (last year), SIA Chief Executive Goh Choon Phong announced that Singapore Airlines was looking to recruit 2,000 cabin crew as air travel was picking up.

While he declined to say how many pilots SIA employed in 2022, he said that the number of pilots at SIA Group is still similar to pre-COVID-19 numbers, with just “a very small number” who have left. Pre-pandemic, Singapore Airlines had about 3,200 pilots.

While it may shocking to hear that four SIA pilots died in the same month, it is not really shocking when you factor in the death rate in Singapore, which is 5.8 per 1,000 (2021).

Assuming Singapore Airlines only has 3,000 pilots, it should expect 17 of its pilots to die on a given year, or about 1.5 pilots a month. In addition to these four pilots, a fifth pilot died in December. So five SIA pilots dying in 2023 is exceptionally low.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Cancer

There is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cause, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Even if, hypothetically, COVID-19 vaccines are carcinogenic (which is not the case), it will take many years before vaccinated people can conceivably develop cancer of any kind.

It is simply not possible for anyone to develop cancer right after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine has been found to cause cancer of any kind.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Cardiac Arrest

As of March 2023, over 13 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally, and their safety and efficacy have been closely monitored in the last 2.5 years. While mRNA vaccines have been shown to cause myocarditis in some children and young adults, none of the vaccines have been shown to cause cardiac arrest.

The truth is – sudden cardiac arrest is relatively common in young healthy adults, even athletes. The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time. The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest also increases during stressful or strenuous activities, which is why many countries mandate the provision of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) devices in public facilities like malls, sporting centres, gyms, schools, parks, etc.

Singapore has installed AEDs in public places for many years now, because people have been suffering sudden cardiac arrests long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented. This was what the Minister for Home Affairs K. Shanmugan wrote in July 2019:

Many buildings in Singapore are already equipped with AEDs such as schools, community centres, sports stadiums, bus interchanges, MRT stations, Singapore Armed Forces camps and Home Team facilities. Several commercial and office buildings have also installed AEDs.

Under the Save-A-Life (“SAL”) initiative, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) has installed AEDs at the lift lobbies of HDB blocks in all 89 constituencies, with one AED for every two HDB blocks. SCDF is looking to expand its SAL initiative beyond HDB estates to condominiums.

The SCDF is also working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Singapore Heart Foundation (“SHF”) to encourage more public and private establishments to install AEDs and register their publicly-accessible AEDs with the SHF, in order to build a national registry of publicly-accessible AEDs.

In short, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim. But COVID-19 vaccines also cannot prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Did 2 University Students Get Cancer From This Plant?!

Did two university students get cancer, specifically leukaemia, from this plant?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Two University Students Got Cancer From This Plant!

This photo and warning keeps going viral on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook:

My daughters Sis- in- law age 31 died yesterday cos of leukemia.
She got leukemia while doing master in botanical at USM.
Research on the plant above.
Her friend doing the same research also got CA and died last year.
USM and Health Ministery proved that these two uni students got leukemia due to the plants above.
Action (perhatian)
If u have these plants, destroy it by burning it before it flowers.
Pass the info to the group to remind the danger of this plant. Don’t know how true but better be safe than sorry. 🙏🏻

Recommended : Can Flower of the Holy Spirit Transform To Dove?!

 

Truth : No University Students Got Cancer From This Plant!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Has Been Circulating Since 2015

First, let me just point out that this viral warning and photo have been circulating for many years now, at least since December 2015.

Like many of such viral fake news, it keeps reappearing and going viral every year or so.

Fact #2 : USM Refuted The Claims As Fake News

When the photo and story first went viral in December 2015, University Sains Malaysia (USM) was inundated with queries about it. In response, the USM Media and Public Relations Centre director Mohamad Abdullah publicly refuted the claims, and said that it was “false news”.

We have been bombarded with many queries on this. We would like to urge those posting this up to prove their claims so we can conduct an official investigation.

USM would like to plead to all to stop spreading the false news on the matter immediately.

Needless to say, no one ever stepped forward to share with USM which 31 year-old university student of theirs died from cancer, after doing research on the plant.

Fact #3 : Plant In Photo Is Likely Zanzibar Gem

The viral message never identified the plant, but after a close examination and reverse image searches, the plant appears to be the Zanzibar Gem (Zamioculcas zamiifolia).

While some fact checkers have claimed that this is the money plant (Epipremnum aureum), that’s incorrect. The leaves of money plant have light and dark green patterns, while the Zanzibar Gem (also known as ZZ) has even green leaves.

Fact #4 : Neither Plants Cause Cancer

Both the money plant and Zanzibar Gem are considered poisonous houseplants, and toxic to humans and pets. However, neither the money plant or Zanzibar Gem cause cancer.

The money plant is known to be toxic to cats and dogs due to insoluble raphides. It is also mildly toxic to humans if consumed, due to its calcium oxalate content. However, it does not cause cancer.

The Zanzibar Gem is also toxic to humans and pets, because it contains calcium oxalate. However, it also does not cause cancer.

Incidentally, both plants are toxic to consume and irritating to touch at all times, not just when they are flowering as the viral message claims.

Did Samantha Weinstein die from vaccine turbo cancer?!

Did Canadian actress Samantha Weinstein just die suddenly from turbo cancer caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Samantha Weinstein Died From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

Right after news broke that Samantha Weinstein died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Canadian actress died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects!

So many young people are dying! Not #DiedSuddenly right now, since no one is taking the vaccine anymore, but as a result of what we were told that it will accelerate cancers, auto immune viruses, etc.

La célèbre actrice Samantha Weinstein est décédée d’un cancer à 28ans. Malheureusement, elle était complètement vaccinée. 😭 imaginez si je fais des reportages sur des milliers de célébrités, tous morts qui sont vaccinés, combien il y en a qui ne sont pas célèbres.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Truth : Samantha Weinstein Did Not Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Samantha Weinstein Died From Ovarian Cancer

Samantha Weinstein (born Samantha Gail Weinstein on 20 March 1995) died from ovarian cancer at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, Canada, at 11:25 AM on 14 May 2023.

The nature and cause of Samantha Weinstein’s death was confirmed by her family, who posted this announcement on her official Instagram account.

Sam died on May 14th at 11:25am surrounded by her loved ones at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.

After two and a half years of cancer treatment, and a lifetime of jet setting around the world, voicing a plethora of cartoon animals, making music, and knowing more about life than most people ever will, she is off on her next adventure.

Samantha Weinstein is best known for playing the high school student Heather in the 2013 movie, Carrie. She died weeks after getting married to Michael Knutson. Her last Instagram post was on May 1, showing her enjoying her honeymoon with her new husband in Tokyo.

Fact #2 : Samantha Weinstein Had Cancer Before Vaccines Were Approved

Her family stated that Samantha underwent 2.5 years of treatment, which would mean that Samantha Weinstein was likely diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and started receiving treatment around November 2020 – BEFORE the first COVID-19 vaccine was approved in December 2020.

Unless the COVID-19 vaccine has a built-in time machine, there is simply no way for it to go back in time to cause her ovarian cancer!

Recommended : Did Dolly Parton Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Samantha Weinstein Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

While people are claiming that Samantha Weinstein was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she has never publicly revealed her vaccination status.

Therefore, it is currently unknown if Samantha Weinstein was vaccinated against COVID-19. Her family has also not mentioned her vaccination status.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Canada, and other countries worldwide. In addition, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Samantha Weinstein died from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : There Is No Such Thing As Turbo Cancer

There is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Even if, hypothetically, Samantha Weinstein was vaccinated with a carcinogenic COVID-19 vaccine (which does not exist), it will take many months and years before she could conceivably develop cancer of any kind.

It is simply not possible for her to develop ovarian cancer right after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine has been found to cause cancer of any kind.

It is unknown what kind of ovarian cancer Samantha Weinstein was diagnosed with, but the most common type – epithelial carcinoma, can spread to other parts of the body within weeks or months. That’s fast, but the speed of progression has nothing to do with vaccines. That is simply the nature of malignant epithelial carcinoma.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Tina Turner Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Tina Turner Died After A Long Illness

According to her representative, Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939) died peacefully after a long illness at her home in Küsnacht, Switzerland on 24 May 2023.

She did not “die suddenly”, as many are claiming on social media.

Fact #2 : Tina Turner Has Been In Poor Health For Many Years

Tina Turner’s official cause of death is currently unknown. However, she has been in poor health for many years.

In 2013, she suffered a stroke three weeks after her wedding to Erwin Bach, and had to learn to walk again. In 2016, she was diagnosed with intestinal cancer, which she battled for the rest of her life.

Tina Turner also suffered from high blood pressure, but opted to use homeopathic remedies. Eventually, her kidneys were damaged by hypertension, ending in kidney failure. She considered assisted suicide, but her husband donated his kidney to her. She underwent kidney transplant on April 7, 2017.

Until and unless her representative or family publicly reveal her cause of death, anyone who tells you that Tina Turner died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Dolly Parton Just Die Suddenly In Hospital?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Tina Turner Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

While people are claiming that Tina Turner was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, and some even claiming that she received four shots, she has never publicly revealed her vaccination status.

Therefore, it is currently unknown if Tina Turner was vaccinated against COVID-19. Her family has also not mentioned his vaccination status.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated against COVID-19! After all, she chose to go with alternative medicine to treat her hypertension.

In addition, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Switzerland, and other countries worldwide. Many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Tina Turner died from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tina Turner was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she died from the COVID-19 vaccine, as she would have received her doses many months ago!

She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Can Vitamin C + Prawns Poison Us With Arsenic?!

Will eating vitamin C and prawns on the same day create toxic arsenic which has already killed one woman?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Eating Vitamin C + Prawns Will Poison Us With Arsenic!

People are sharing this message on WhatsApp and social media platforms, claiming that eating vitamin C and prawns on the same day can create toxic arsenic which has already killed one woman!

This is a long message, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Very Educative:

A woman suddenly died unexpectedly with signs of bleeding from her ears, nose, mouth & eyes. After a preliminary autopsy it was diagnosed that death was due to arsenic poisoning. Where did the arsenic come from?

The police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to come to solve the case. The professor carefully looked at the contents. In less than half an hour, the mystery was solved.

Here is an older version that has been going around since 2014:

This is a story that happened to the relative of a friend of mine. If you love your family and your friends, just tell them about this story.

Recommended : Can Bak Kut Teh Herbal Soup Cause Liver Damage?!

 

Truth : Eating Vitamin C + Prawns Will Not Poison Us With Arsenic!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : This Is An Old Hoax

The claim that eating prawns together with vitamin C can poison you with arsenic isn’t new. It’s been circulating on email since at least 2001, before being shared on WhatsApp and social media in more recent years.

Fact #2 : Hoax Is Based On Actual Research

While many fact checkers immediately dismissed this as fake news, I need to point out that this hoax is based on actual research by the University of Illinois.

In 1985, three researchers in the University of Illinois’ animal sciences department reported that they unexpectedly found that vitamin C and cysteine can convert harmless arsenic pentoxide into strongly poisonous arsenic trioxide.

The unexpected finding by Gail Czarnecki, David Baker and John Garst concerns the way molecules of arsenic compounds are constructed. If atoms within the compounds share five electrons with neighboring atoms, they are said to be ”pentavalent” and are fairly harmless.

Several foods, especially shrimp and prawns, may contain high concentrations of such arsenic compounds. What the Illinois researchers found is that high doses of vitamin C convert the pentavalent compounds into trivalent arsenic, a highly toxic poison.

Cysteine, a chemical sometimes given as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning, also converts arsenic to the trivalent, highly toxic form.

That said, I have to point out that this research does not appear to have been published. None of the three scientists listed any paper on vitamin C’s effect on arsenic compounds:

While that does not mean that they were wrong about their findings, I should also point out that this finding does not appear to have been confirmed or even reviewed by other scientists / researchers.

Recommended : Lead + Cadmium High In Many Dark Chocolate!

Fact #3 : Risk Is Not Limited To Prawns / Shrimps

The researchers did not say that eating prawns / shrimps while consuming vitamin C can kill you through arsenic poisoning. They merely pointed out that shellfish, particularly prawns and shrimps, “may” contain high levels of normally harmless arsenic pentoxide.

In other words – any food that contains high levels of arsenic pentoxide can present with these risks. Not just prawns or shrimps. Common foods that contain higher amounts of arsenic include rice, Brussel sprouts, chicken, mushrooms, beer and wine.

Fact #4 : Risk Involves High Doses Of Vitamin C

The researchers also pointed out that the risk of harmless arsenic in food being converted to poisonous arsenic trioxide involves high doses of vitamin C – megadosing with vitamin C, as they called it.

Normal consumption of vitamin C would not convert sufficient amounts of arsenic to make a difference.

Fact #5 : Danger Was Long-Term Cancer Risk

Finally, the researchers never said that eating prawns / shrimps while taking megadoses of vitamin C can kill you with arsenic poisoning. They were worried about “chronic exposure” to arsenic which is carcinogenic, and can cause cancer if exposed for a long time.

Chronic exposure to arsenic is known to cause cancer in humans. We now must wonder whether megadosing with vitamin C increases the risk of cancer by changing the form of arsenic in food.

Recommended : Does Steaming Food Cause Cancer From Chlorine?!

Fact #6 : Acute Arsenic Poisoning Does Not Present That Way

You can die if you consume too much arsenic, but you won’t die bleeding from your ears, nose, mouth and ears.

Acute arsenic poisoning presents with diarrhoea and stomach pain, cramps and vomiting (with or without blood), blood in the urine, and convulsions.

I should point out that there is no known case of anyone dying from arsenic poisoning after consuming both vitamin C and prawns / shrimps.

Read more : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : CDC Did Not Say COVID-19 Vaccines Increase AIDS + Cancer

This is just another example of FAKE NEWS from the notorious fake news website, The Expose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Expose Is A Notorious Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

Anti-vaccination activists and websites often mention “adverse events” instead of “side effects”, and that’s intentional.

Adverse events are simply “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination, even if they are unrelated to the vaccine itself. Adverse events can include vaccine-related events like an anaphylactic reaction, or something completely unrelated like getting into a car accident right after vaccination.

Just because they were reported to monitoring systems like VAERS in the US, or Yellow Card in the UK, it does not mean that they are vaccine side effects. Reported adverse events have to be investigated to find out if they are related (anaphylactic reaction) or not (getting into a car accident) to the vaccine or drug that was taken.

Even if an adverse event was “possibly caused” by the vaccine, it must still be confirmed that the vaccine directly caused it, because an anaphylactic reaction (for example) can also occur from a bee sting, or an existing peanut allergy.

Only once an adverse event is confirmed to be caused by the vaccine, is it then a vaccine side effect. Otherwise, it is merely an adverse event, not a side effect.

That is why it is not only wrong, but grossly irresponsible, to use adverse events to scare people into thinking that they are vaccine side effects.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #3 : Adverse Event Monitoring Systems Are Open To Abuse

Adverse event monitoring systems like VAERS and Yellow Card were intentionally designed to be open to anyone to report anything. This lets scientists catch as many adverse events as possible, to hopefully pick out very rare side effects that even large trials may not catch.

Unfortunately, this open design also makes them notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. Not just doctors and their patients, but literally any Tom, Dick, or Harry with nothing better to do, can create and file nonsensical adverse event reports.

This is why VAERS, for example, is a favourite tool for anti-vaccination activists. Not only can they create fake reports to inflate the numbers of adverse events, and/or to generate fake news, they often use its unverified adverse events statistics to drive the perception that COVID-19 vaccines cause a lot of death and injuries.

The CDC is well-aware of this problem, which is why they explicitly pointed out to everyone that :

  • Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
  • The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.

For certain, CDC did not say that the VAERS reports show that COVID-19 vaccines increased AIDS and cancer by 338X in 2021!

So next time you see any report that mentions VAERS, take it with a big pinch of salt. Better still, ignore it completely.

Fact #4 : AIDS Is Caused By HIV Infection

The Expose / Daily Expose falsely claims that AIDS have multiple causes, including “drugs or medications”. That’s nonsense. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is only caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

HIV infections go through different stages – from an acute infection, to clinical latency, before it progresses to the AIDS stage, which is defined as a HIV infection with either :

  • a CD4+ T cell count below 200 cells per µL, or
  • the occurrence of specific diseases associated with HIV infection

The Expose / Daily Expose (intentionally?) confused AIDS with Secondary Immunodeficiency Disorders (SID).

Since AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection, the entire premise of its article falls into pieces. It’s complete and utter nonsense – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause AIDS!

Fact #5 : HIV Is Different From SARS-CoV-2

Just to be clear, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2 – the COVID-19 virus.

HIV viruses are single-stranded retroviruses from the Lentivirus genus, and are transmitted through sexual contact, or transfer of blood and bodily fluids.

SARS-CoV-2 is a single-stranded coronavirus from the Betacoronavirus genus, and is airborne, mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets and aerosols.

There is no conceivable way for COVID-19 vaccines, or even COVID-19 infections, to cause AIDS…. or to “create a new form of AIDS”. That’s nonsense.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Damage Immune System

COVID-19 vaccines do not damage your immune system, because they are really just training camps for your immune system.

All they do is teach your immune system how to identify the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Your own immune system will then develop its own antibodies to protect against the real coronavirus when you get infected.

Like special forces training for soldiers in an army, vaccines boost your immune system’s ability to fight back against a new enemy.

COVID-19 vaccines certainly cannot cause AIDS by damaging your immune system Again, AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection!
