Is Canada rolling out Social Credit System for Bank Accounts?!

Is Canada rolling out a social credit system that links bank accounts to obedience scores of its citizens?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Canada is rolling out Social Credit System for Bank Accounts!

People are sharing an article (archive) by Natural News, which claims that Canada is rolling out a social credit system that links bank accounts to obedience scores of its citizens!

Here is an excerpt of that very long and (intentionally???) confusing article:

Canada rolling out social credit system, citizens’ bank accounts linked to obedience scores

Our neighbors to the north are implementing a new system called “open banking” that will link citizen’s bank accounts to a new social credit scoring system.

Truth : Canada is not rolling out Social Credit System for Bank Accounts!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating online, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Canada Is Not Rolling Out Any Social Credit System!

Let me start by simply pointing out that Canada is not rolling out any social credit system!

In fact, the Department of Finance Canada labelled these allegations as “false”, and said that there are no plans to adopt such a system in a March 20, 2024 email (source).

Any allegation that the Government of Canada is trying to introduce social credit scores is categorically false.

Claims that Canada is rolling out a social credit system along the same lines as China’s social credit system isn’t new (example). It appears to have started in 2021, just before the Canadian federal election.

It was not true back in 2021, and it is not true either in 2024. But it goes to show how fake news can be recycled over time to generate controversy (and money???)

Fact #2 : Natural News Provided No Evidence

I should point out that the Natural News article provided no evidence that Canada is rolling out any social credit system, or that bank accounts will be linked to “obedience scores”.

It merely linked to a Slay News article (archive) which made similar claims, but also did not provide any evidence that Canada is rolling out a social credit system, or that bank accounts in Canada will be linked to a social credit score.

Fact #3 : Open Banking Is Not A Social Credit System

Instead of a social credit system, these articles appear to be pointing at open banking, which is completely different.

Also known as consumer-directed banking, or consumer-led banking, open banking requires banks to “open up” their hitherto private application programming interfaces (APIs) so that consumers can share their financial information securely with other banks or authorised organisations like fintech companies, and payment providers.

Open banking has nothing to do with social credit, and merely allows you – the consumer – to securely share your financial information with other banks, payment providers, and fintech companies that you approve.

Without open banking, you will need to share your financial information manually, and in very insecure ways that can be easily duplicated and shared outside of the approved institutions.

An estimated 9 million Canadians currently share their financial data by providing confidential banking credentials to service providers.

This process, known as screen-scraping, is unsecure and raises security, liability, and privacy risks to consumers and the financial system.

Fact #4 : Open Banking Has Not Even Been Approved In Canada!

Claims that Canada is already rolling out a social credit system through open banking are easily disproven. Not only is open banking not a social credit system, it hasn’t even been approved in Canada!

According to the Department of Finance Canada (archive), the federal government will submit the legislative framework for open banking that will be introduced in Budget 2024, which is slated for 16 April 2024. Even if it is approved, the Canadian government will only introduce open banking in 2025.

To be clear – open banking has not been approved in Canada. Even if it is approved, it won’t be available for use until 2025.

Fact #5 : Open Banking In Canada Will Be Opt-In

I should also point out that the proposed open banking system in Canada is meant to be opt-in, and users will have to consent to share their financial information with the service provider they approve.

In other words – no one can force you to use the open banking system to securely share your financial information.

If you choose to go “old school” and take screenshots that would reveal other private details, and can be freely shared outside of the approved service provider, you do you. Just don’t blame anyone for leaking your personal financial information when you are making it so easy to do that.

Does FDA Document Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real?!

Did an FDA document just prove that COVID-19 vaccine shedding is real?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Doc Proves COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real!

People are sharing articles (archive | archive) by Natural News and Infowars, which claimed or suggested that an FDA document just proved that COVID-19 vaccine shedding is real!

Here is an excerpt from those articles. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

PROOF: Documents from FDA, Pfizer show that COVID “vaccine” shedding is REAL

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

 

Truth : FDA Doc Does Not Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real!

This is yet another example of anti-vaccine fake news, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The FDA Document Is From 2015

Let me start by pointing out that the FDA document in question is almost 9 years old, being originally published in August 2015.

In other words –  it was published 4 years before the COVID-19 pandemic, and 5 years before the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved.

Fact #2 : FDA Document Does Not Apply To COVID-19 Vaccines!

The FDA document was an industry guidance paper (PDF) called Design and Analysis of Shedding Studies for Virus or Bacteria-based Gene Therapy and Oncolytic Products.

The title itself is clear – it only refers to “Virus or Bacteria-based Gene Therapy and Oncolytic Products“.

COVID-19 vaccines are not gene therapy (gene modification) products, and they are not oncolytic (cancer killing) products either. So the FDA document does not apply to them!

Fact #3 : Shedding Only Occurs With Live Attenuated Virus Vaccines

Vaccine shedding actually refers to viral shedding, which can only (potentially) occur with live attenuated virus vaccines. Such vaccines alters the virus to make it weakened or even harmless, but still “live”.

There are no COVID-19 vaccines that are based on the live attenuated SARS-CoV-2 virus. Therefore, vaccine shedding cannot possibly occur with any COVID-19 vaccine currently-approved by the WHO.

All currently-approved COVID-19 vaccines are based on other vaccine technologies like inactivated virus (killed virus), viral vector (using a different virus), mRNA (using mRNA instructions), or subunit vaccines (using isolated viral proteins).

To be clear – mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, highlighted in the Natural News and Infowars articles, do not cause vaccine shedding.

Fact #4 : 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 #5 : Natural News Is Known For Fake News

Natural News is a far-right, anti-vaccination conspiracy theory and fake news website that is known for publishing / promoting pseudoscience, disinformation, and far-right extremism.

Writing in the journal Vaccine, Anna Kata identified Natural News as one of numerous websites spreading “irresponsible health information”. According to John Banks, Natural News founder Mike Adams uses “pseudoscience to sell his lies” and is “seen as generally a quack and a shill by science bloggers.”

Dr. David Gorski called Natural News “one of the most wretched hives of scum and quackery on the Internet,” and the most “blatant purveyor of the worst kind of quackery and paranoid anti-physician and anti-medicine conspiracy theories anywhere on the Internet”.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from Natural News.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Pfizer Added Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids?!

Did Pfizer secretly add Tromethamine – a “heart attack drug” also known as Tris – to their COVID-19 vaccine for kids?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer Secretly Added Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

The Alex Jones Show, The Expose UK, Infowars, Natural News and other anti-vaccination websites have been pushing the claim that Pfizer secretly added Tromethamine to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for kids!

They claimed that Pfizer added Tromethamine to their COVID-19 vaccine for kids, to reduce the risk of children getting heart attacks as a side effect.

A newly released document shows that drug giant Pfizer added a secret heart attack drug to the children’s version of its Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Committee that voted 17-0 to approve the jabs for children as young as five was notified that the children’s formulation of the drug contains tromethamine (Tris), a chemical that reduces blood acidity and stabilizes people who have suffered a heart attack.

Here are known side effects: Respiratory depression – local irritation- tissue inflammation – injection site infection – febrile response – chemical phlebitis – venospasm (vein spasms) – hypervolemia – IV thrombosis – extravasation (with possible necrosis and sloughing of tissues) – transient decreases in blood glucose concentrations – hypoglycemia, and Hepatic Necrosis with infusion via low-lying umbilical venous catheters.

Truth : Pfizer Did NOT Secretly Add Tromethamine To COVID-19 Vaccine For Kids!

This is yet another example of vaccine FAKE NEWS being created and propagated by anti-vaxxers to discourage the vaccination of children.

Pfizer did NOT “secretly” add Tromethamine to their newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine for children to reduce or prevent the risk of heart attacks in children.

Everything posted by Alex Jones, Infowars, Natural News or The Expose UK, must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

For those who want more information on why this is false, here are the reasons…

Fact #1 : It Was Public Information

Anti-vaccination websites and supporters are FALSELY claiming that Pfizer SECRETLY added Tromethamine (Tris) to the new paediatric COVID-19 vaccine.

The truth is – that was PUBLICLY AVAILABLE information that Pfizer and US FDA released in page 12 of the VRBPAC briefing document on 22 October 2021!

Pfizer/BioNTech are requesting authorization of a modified formulation of BNT162b2 to accommodate the 10-µg dose.

This modified formulation allows for an improved stability profile and greater ease of use at administration sites. The modified formulation uses a Tris buffer instead of phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and excludes sodium chloride and potassium chloride.

Authorization and future licensure of the modified formulation is based on analytical comparability to the currently authorized PBS containing formulation in accordance with CBER guidance. The change in buffer is not considered clinically significant.

By lying that it was a secret, they are trying to fool you into thinking that Pfizer was trying to slip tromethamine into the paediatric vaccine without the US FDA or the public knowing about it.

That’s not only easily proven false, it is intentionally deceitful.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Call For Withdrawal Of COVID-19 Vaccines?

Fact #2 : Tromethamine Used To Stabilise Paediatric Pfizer Vaccine

By replacing the original phosphate-buffered saline in the new paediatric COVID-19 vaccine, it can now be stored in a normal refrigerator at 2-8°C for up to 10 weeks.

That is a HUGE 2.5X improvement over the current storage limit of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine :

  • originally, the vaccine could only be stored between 2-8°C for up to 5 days.
  • after further stability tests, the US FDA determined on 19 May 2021 that it can be stored between 2-8°C for up to 31 days.

There are no other changes to the vaccine, so only the change in the buffer could have accounted for the big jump in vaccine stability and longer storage time.

Fact #3 : Tromethamine Is NOT A Heart Attack Drug

Tris, which is short for tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane or tromethamine / trometamol / THAM in medical use, is an organic compound with MANY uses.

In biochemistry and molecular biology, it is used in buffer solutions (to maintain pH level) especially when there is a need to stabilise nucleic acids.

In medical use, Tris is used to treat metabolic acidosis, as an alternative to sodium bicarbonate. That’s its purpose in cardiac bypass surgery – to correct metabolic acidosis that may occur during or immediately after surgery.

Tromethamine is NOT a drug that treats heart attack. Neither is it capable of preventing heart attacks. So the claim is completely false and nonsensical.

If Tromethamine can actually prevent myocarditis / pericarditis, it would have been added to the Pfizer vaccine for adults and adolescents long ago.

Fact #4 : Tromethamine Is Used In The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has been using Tris or tromethamine as a buffer from the very beginning, to maintain its pH level and stabilise the nucleic acid macromolecules.

If Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine is truly being added to prevent heart problems as a side effect, then the Moderna vaccine would not have the same problem with myocarditis or pericarditis.

Yet, the Moderna vaccine can similarly cause myocarditis / pericarditis in young males, just like the Pfizer vaccine.

This shows that Tris / Trometamol / Tromethamine has ZERO effect on heart problems.

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

Fact #5 : Only 0.15 mg Of Tromethamine In Each Dose

Each dose of the Pfizer paediatric COVID-19 vaccine contains 0.02 mg tromethamine and 0.13 mg of tromethamine hydrochloride.

For simplicity’s sake – that’s a total of 0.15 mg of Tromethamine in a single shot. There is 6X more sodium chloride (0.9 mg) than Tromethamine in that shot.

The maximum dose for tromethamine is 500 mg/kg when taken within an hour. A typical 5 year-old child weighs about 18 kg, so we should not exceed 9,000 mg or 9 grams.

In other words – the 0.15 mg of tromethamine in that Pfizer vaccine dose is just 0.00167% of the maximum dose a 5 year-old child can receive.

Fact #6 : Tromethamine Can Be Injected Intramuscularly

Many Google doctors who looked up tromethamine in the use of metabolic acidosis will see that it is usually administered intravenously, and immediately insist that it can only be administered intravenously.

That’s not true. For example, ketorolac tromethamine can either be injected intravenously or intramuscularly. Heck, it even comes in the form of eye drops and oral tablets!

It all depends on what it’s used for, and its formulation.

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

Fact #7 : Myocarditis / Pericarditis Is NOT Heart Attack

Antivaxxers are trying to conflate the existing myocarditis / pericarditis adverse effect, with a myocardial infarction (heart attack). They are completely different.

Myocarditis / pericarditis is the INFLAMMATION of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or outer lining of the heart (pericarditis), causing chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of a pounding or fast-beating heart.

It is generally mild, and most will respond well to medicine and rest, and recover completely. They can usually return to normal daily activities once their symptoms improve / resolve.

Myocardial infarction is the IRREVERSIBLE DEATH of the heart muscle due to a PROLONGED LACK of oxygen supply. This is a medical emergency which will result in death if not treated quickly.

Individuals who survive a myocardial infarction will not recover completely, because you cannot restore the dead heart muscle.

Recommended : Do mRNA Vaccines Increase Risk Of Death + Injuries?!

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Causes More Myocarditis / Pericarditis Than Vaccines

The adult dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has a rare risk of causing myocarditis or pericarditis in adolescents and young males., but the paediatric Pfizer vaccine has SO FAR not caused any case of myocarditis or pericarditis.

However, what antivaxxers won’t tell you is that COVID-19 itself causes way more cases of myocarditis or pericarditis than the Pfizer vaccine!

For a better perspective of the risk of developing myocarditis, I created this comparison table for you :

Myocarditis Risk Per Million People Difference
COVID-19 Patient 450 +2208%
Pfizer Vaccine
(Adult Dose)
20 +2.6%
Normal Population 19.5 Baseline

As you can see, the risk of developing myocarditis is MUCH higher if your child gets infected with COVID-19, compared with getting a full dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

I have no idea if the myocarditis risk is truly lower with the paediatric dose, but it surely cannot be more than the full dose that is currently being administered to adolescents.

Do We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated?

Do we need FIVE vaccine doses to qualify as fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

Find out what’s the new viral claim, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Do We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated?

Alternative health and alternative news websites like Natural News have been pushing a new claim recently.

According to these websites, a Swedish professor, Matti Sällberg, claimed that we “will need FIVE vaccine doses for immunity” and if we “don’t submit“, we “no longer qualify as fully vaccinated“.

The underlying suggestion is that COVID-19 vaccines do not offer immunity or are useless against COVID-19, and are merely a money making scam by Big Pharma.

Natural News pointed out that in Israel, 85% to 90% of hospitalised patients were vaccinated.

Natural News also claimed that the Swedish professor has an ulterior motive – Sällberg is the founder of vaccine manufacturer Svenska Vaccin Fabriken (SVF).

Shocking? Let me show you what the FACTS really are…

 

Truth : We Do NOT Need FIVE Vaccine Doses To Be Fully Vaccinated

Naturally, Natural News is peddling fake news as usual, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Professor Sällberg Did Not Say We Need FIVE Vaccine Doses

Professor Sällberg did NOT say that we “require FIVE vaccine doses”, as alleged by Natural News and other websites peddling “alternative health” and “alternative facts”.

Here is a summary of what he actually said in his interview with Aftonbladet :

  • Planning for a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is extremely reasonable, as the immune response slowly subsides [over time].
  • We do not know yet if people may have lost their protection within the year, but if you get a third dose, [the protection] will be activated again.
  • There is no indication that protection has begun to fail, [but] it is not at all unlikely that … you have to give recurring doses.
  • Biology says that a fading immune response is not unlikely. If so, it may be a third, fourth, maybe fifth dose.

As you can see, he never once said that we will require five vaccine doses.

Where did those websites get the idea that we are required to have five vaccine doses? Did they make up the story? Think about that.

Fact #2 : We Don’t Need Five Doses To Qualify As Fully-Vaccinated

There is no requirement to receive five vaccine doses to qualify as being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19.

In fact, you cannot even get a third booster dose for COVID-19 in most countries, because that has not even been approved!

Professor Sällberg also pointed out in his Aftonbladet interview that :

Anyone who has received two doses is considered fully vaccinated according to the first vaccination schedule, and there is no indication that protection has begun to fail.

The fully-vaccinated status also depends on the vaccine. Some vaccines – like the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine – only requires a single dose to be considered fully-vaccinated.

Fact #3 : Booster Doses Are Like Refresher Classes

COVID-19 vaccines are nothing more than self-defence classes for our immune system, teaching it how to identify and produce antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

After you are fully vaccinated, you will have high levels of protective antibodies. But these will slowly decrease over time, unless your body is actively defending itself against COVID-19.

Even so, the immune system will still remember how to identify and create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It just needs more time to ramp up its defences.

That’s where a booster dose comes in. It reminds your immune system that COVID-19 is still around, and triggers production of fresh antibodies.

It literally works like a refresher course of a COVID-19 self-defence class for your immune system.

Fact #4 : Israel Has Herd Immunity From Vaccines

Natural News insinuates that vaccination cannot prevent COVID-19 in Israel, stating that 85% to 90% of hospitalised cases were vaccinated.

That’s actually not true, because it involves cherry picking data to convey a false narrative.

85% of Israeli adults are vaccinated, so they have already achieved herd immunity. That’s why there are very few COVID-19 cases in Israel.

Not only are the vaccines protecting the vaccinated, they are also protecting the unvaccinated.

To get their alleged vaccine breakthrough rate of 85% to 90%, they have to look at very specific dates like 13 and 14 July 2021.

Fact #5 : SVK Does Not Currently Make COVID-19 Vaccines

Natural News falsely claimed that Professor Matti Sällberg has an ulterior motive to call for COVID-19 booster doses – he’s the founder of a vaccine company called Svenska Vaccin Fabriken (SVK).

The truth is SVK does not currently make COVID-19 vaccines, so is not able to financially benefit from any booster dose programme.

SVK is developing a COVID-19 vaccine – the SVF-002, but it is still in preclinical development, and has not even undergone a Phase 1 trial.

The SVF-002 vaccine candidate, even if it works, is unlikely to be approved until the middle or end of 2022.

With this fact check, I hope you can see how just dangerous websites that peddle alternative health and alternative facts really are.

They intentionally twist facts to convey a false narrative, to scare people into not protecting themselves with COVID-19 vaccines.

Why? Is it to sell the supplements and fake cures that they are always promoting? That is certainly an ulterior motive you have to think about.

Please think on that, and SHARE this fact check with your family and friends, so they won’t be fooled by such lies and misinformation!

Did Salk Institute Prove Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots?

Did researchers from the Salk Institute just prove that COVID-19 vaccines are designed to cause deadly blood clots?

Find out what new lies Mike Adams from Natural News just posted, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Did Salk Institute Prove Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots?

Mike Adams from NaturalNews is at it again, crafting new lies using the same scientific studies that he abhors so much. Hypocrisy much?

Here is a new piece of fake news trash that Mike just put up on Natural News, and people are sharing on social media as if it’s true.

BOMBSHELL Salk Institute science paper reveals the covid spike protein is what’s causing deadly blood clots… and it’s in all the covid vaccines (by design)…

Well-documented article reveals the shocking truth that covid vaccines are DESIGNED to cause widespread injury and death!

The prestigious Salk Institute, founded by vaccine pioneer Jonas Salk, has authored and published a bombshell scientific article revealing that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what’s actually causing vascular damage in covid patients and covid vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans (source: VAERS.hhs.gov).

Critically, all four covid vaccine brands currently in widespread use either inject patients with the spike protein or, via mRNA technology, instruct the patient’s own body to manufacture spike proteins and release them into their own blood. This floods the patient’s body with the very spike protein that the Salk Institute has now identified as the smoking gun cause of vascular damage and related events (such as blood clots, which are killing many people who take the vaccines).

Put simply, it means the vaccines were designed to contain the very element that’s killing people.

 

NO. Salk Institute Did NOT Even Say Covid-19 Vaccines Cause Blood Clots!

Mike Adams and Natural News are infamous for writing fake stories, designed to scare people.

Why? So you will share his posts and he makes money from advertisements and selling you fake cures.

This is yet another FAKE STORY written by Mike to scare you, and here are the FACTS!

Fact #1 : SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein Is A Defining Feature

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to specifically target the spike protein (S protein) because :

  • it is the defining feature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus
  • antibodies targeting it will block the virus from binding with our cells

The spike protein is both the “uniform” and the “weapon” of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Think of it as the German spiked helmet of World War I – the Pickelhaube. It is distinctive, and the spike can even be used as a weapon!

After your immune system is trained by the vaccines, it can immediately identify the real SARS-CoV-2 virus by its spike protein.

This allows it to quickly produce antibodies that bind with the spike protein, and blocking the real virus from attacking your cells!

Fact #2 : mRNA Vaccines Do Not Release Spike Proteins Into Blood

This is an outright lie by Mike Adams, and he knows it. Anyone who read the news (never mind press releases!) on mRNA vaccines from Pfizer or Moderna know that :

  • they teach our cells to create the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins.
  • these spike proteins are then expressed (presented) on the surface of those cells

These spike proteins are NOT released in our blood, as Mike falsely claimed.

Fact #3 : Salk Institute Did Not Even Look At COVID-19 Vaccines!

The Salk Institute press release, which you can read in its entirety here, did not even mention COVID-19 vaccines, much less looked at whether they cause blood clots.

So how did COVID-19 vaccines get mentioned? Mike Adams added that in himself.

Fact #4 : Study Proved That COVID-19 Is A Vascular Disease

The study, which was published in Circulation Research on 30 April 2021, showed that “COVID-19 is a vascular disease“.

The co-senior author of the paper, Assistant Research Professor Uri Manor said, “A lot of people think of it as a respiratory disease, but it’s really a vascular disease. That could explain why some people have strokes, and why some people have issues in other parts of the body. The commonality between them is that they all have vascular underpinnings.

In other words, COVID-19 is more than just a “cold” or even a respiratory illness. It is also a vascular disease that can cause strokes and other problems.

Fact #5 : Study Showed That SARS-CoV-2 Spike Proteins Can Damage Cells

While scientists are not surprised the COVID-19 is a vascular disease, they did not know how the SARS-CoV-2 affects the vascular system.

So these researchers created a pseudovirus that is surrounded by the SARS-CoV-2 classic crown of spike proteins and tested it on an animal model, and in the lab.

They discovered that the spike proteins ALONE are sufficient to damage the cells when they bind to their ACE2 receptors.

This is where Mike jumps in and claims that the spike proteins in COVID-19 vaccines can therefore cause the same damage. We will show you why that is simply FALSE.

Fact #6 : Binding Of Spike Protein With ACE2 Receptors Causes Damage

This is the important part – the study showed that it is the act of the spike proteins binding to the ACE2 receptors that damages the cells!

This binding disrupted ACE2’s molecular signaling to mitochondria (organelles that generate energy for cells), causing the mitochondria to become damaged and fragmented.

That means the spike proteins by themselves do not damage the cells. They must bind with the cells’ ACE2 receptors – as a real SARS-CoV-2 virus would – to damage them.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Spike Proteins Do NOT Bind With ACE2 Receptors

The mere presence of spike proteins in COVID-19 vaccines alone cannot trigger cellular damage, because the binding must be activated by cellular proteases such as TMPRSS2 and Furin.

Think of TMPRSS2 and Furin as the hands that turn the key (spike protein) once it goes into the lock (ACE2 receptor). Without them, the key cannot unlock the door!

TMPRSS2 is primarily expressed by endothelial cells in our respiratory and digestive tracts. Furin is more common, but they are both not present in the cells of the skeletal muscle that the vaccines are injected into.

Even more importantly, skeletal muscle cells do not have the ACE2 receptor, which is abundant in :

  • lung alveolar epithelial cells
  • enterocytes of the small intestine
  • arterial and venous endothelial cells
  • arterial smooth muscle cells

That is why SARS-CoV-2 attacks our respiratory and vascular systems, not our muscles.

That is also why the protein spikes produced by COVID-19 vaccines will not damage our cells, or cause blood clots.

Fact #8 : Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots Are Rare

Mike falsely claimed that COVID-19 vaccines cause “strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that have already killed thousands of Americans”.

He claimed the US VAERS system as a source. That is the American version of the UK Yellow Card system – an open system in which anyone from anywhere can make any claim they want, without verification.

As we demonstrated with the Yellow Card system, you can pretty much post any story you want into these systems.

The truth is vaccine-induced blood clots are very, very rare. In fact, it has been established that only COVID-19 vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson can potentially cause VITT – Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.

Even then, VITT is extremely rare, so rare that you are 219X more likely to die from a COVID-19 infection than get VITT from an AstraZeneca vaccine!

Recommended : AstraZeneca Vaccine Blood Clot Risk : How Dangerous Is It?

severe COVID-19 cases
Up to 95% 45,238X
Thrombocytopenia

Thrombosis from OCP
(Adolescents)
Up to 0.01% 4.8X
Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia
(AstraZeneca Vaccine)
0.0021% Baseline

Fact #9 : VITT Is Not Caused By Spike Protein

As I noted in my earlier article on VITT, a pre-print study concluded that the antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 spike protein do NOT cross-react with platelet factor 4.

Therefore, it seems likely that the adenovirus vectors used in both AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines could be the trigger for this reaction.

After all, other vaccines that target the same SARS-CoV-2 spike protein – like the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines – do not have this risk.

Fact #10 : Vaccines Are Designed To Save Lives

This is the most egregious lie by Mike Adams and Natural News.

Vaccines are not, and have never been, “designed to cause widespread injury and death”, as he claims.

Vaccines have been proven time and time again that they save lives, period. No ifs, no buts, no maybes.

We even have the evidence for the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines in saving lives. Look at how drastically Israel cut down on COVID-19 cases by using vaccinations and lockdowns.

If COVID-19 vaccines kill or injure people, do you really think Israel would have continued vaccinating their people?
