A new study on the mRNA vaccine has just been published and it’s another conspiracy theory that has seemingly come true.
Remember when people were worried that the vaccine may mess with your cells and some said that the proteins could become more toxic than normal.
Well, the study found an unexpected molecular process that takes place inside human cells after vaccination.
It mainly focused on translation errors (leaky scanning) which would cause an incorrect immune response.
The study looked into “vitro-transcribed (IVT) mRNAs,” which are used in medicine to treat diseases, like the vaccines developed for COVID-19. These IVT mRNAs are introduced into specific cells, where they are turned into proteins that can have a therapeutic effect.
Scientists often make modifications to these IVT mRNAs to make them work better and cause fewer side effects. One common modification is adding something called “N1-methylpseudouridine.” However, the study found that this modification can sometimes cause a small mistake in the way the mRNA is read by cells, resulting in a shift in the reading frame.
Think of the reading frame like a sentence where words are made up of three letters. If you start reading from the wrong point, you’ll get a jumbled sentence. In this case, the modified mRNA can sometimes cause the cell’s machinery to start reading from the wrong point, creating a different protein.
This study showed that when this shift occurs, the immune system in mice and humans responds to the incorrectly produced protein, which is clearly a problem.
Now, is the infamous “toxicity” issue?
That is not clear, but the study does show that the mRNA vaccine in some caused the cells in the human body to scramble a bit.
The report also stated that “there are no adverse outcomes reported from mistranslation of mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccines in humans.”
