WSJ goes out on a limb.
One remarkable aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been how often unpopular scientific ideas, from the lab-leak theory to the efficacy of masks, were initially dismissed, even ridiculed, only to resurface later in mainstream thinking. Differences of opinion have sometimes been rooted in disagreement over the underlying science. But the more common motivation has been political.
Another reversal in thinking may be imminent. Some scientists have raised concerns that the safety risks of Covid-19 vaccines have been underestimated. But the politics of vaccination has relegated their concerns to the outskirts of scientific thinking—for now.
The “outskirts” of scientific thinking here refers to two recent discoveries. The first is that Covid-19’s spike protein is a toxin in its own right. (This is important because the mRNA Covid vaccines cause the human body to produce spike protein). The second is that the Covid mRNA vaccine travels throughout the human body, noticeably concentrating in ovaries and bone marrow (this was unexpected when the EUA for the vaccines was given).
There is, at present, no telling what these two observations might mean for public health policy.
My view: Much that we know about Covid-19 and Covid vaccines has been a hoax.
