MIT researcher warns of long-term consequences of mRNA vaccines

A senior research scientist at MIT warned about the potential relationship between the spike protein produced in mRNA vaccines and a wide range of both acute and long-term diseases, such as blood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and autoimmune diseases.

“I have done a lot of research and am beginning to understand how the process takes place. It is very disturbing,” Dr. Stephanie Seneff said January 13th on Laura Ingraham’s program. “I think it is outrageous to be giving vaccines to young people because they have a very low risk of dying from Covid.”

For young people, the benefits derived from the vaccines do not outweigh the risks, according to Dr. Seneff. “When you look at the potential harm from these vaccines it doesn’t make any sense. When you look at repeated boosters, it is going to be devastating in the long term.”

“Parents should do everything they can to avoid giving this to their children.”

Dr. Seneff, along with Greg Nigh, published their research paper, “Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19” in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research last year.

“The science is never easy, but it is quite fascinating what happens,” she told Ingraham. “When the vaccine gets injected into the arm, the muscle cells get very upset.” Immune cells arrive at the injection site and take up the vaccine themselves, receiving the nanoparticles.

The immune cells begin making spike protein. “The particles basically get your cells to produce lots of spike protein in a hurry. Spike is the most toxic part of the virus,” Dr. Seneff explained.

“These immune cells then rush into the lymph system. Many of them end up in the spleen, which is where you want them to be to produce the antibodies.”

The vaccine is designed to end up in the spleen, making a large amount of spike protein, invoking an immune response that produces antibodies, according to Dr. Seneff.

“The problem is that those germinal centers in the spleen are really the center place where Parkinson’s Disease develops and probably many other neuro degenerative diseases,” Dr. Seneff said.

“For Parkinson’s it’s been very well laid out that you get prion-like proteins, even from infections in the gut. Immune cells take them to the spleen to those germinal centers and then they start spewing out exosomes. These are little lipid particles that are released by the cell, unloading that toxic protein and shipping it along the vagus nerve to the brain. This is well-known with respect to Parkinson’s Disease and that’s the model I’m using. It feels to me like this is a perfect set-up for it.”

Dr. Seneff is worried about the way Operation Warp Speed rushed the vaccines into broad use before long term studies were completed. “The exceptionally rapid movement of these vaccines through controlled trials and into mass deployment raises multiple safety concerns,” she noted in her paper.

“These concerns are potentially serious and might not be evident for years or even trans-generationally.”

The technology employed by Pfizer and Moderna in their vaccines is extraordinary, but unsettling to Dr. Seneff. “The vision is grandiose, and the theoretical potential applications are vast. The technology is impressive, but manipulation of the code of life could lead to completely unanticipated negative effects, potentially long term or even permanent.”

Dr. Seneff is particularly worried about neurodegenerative diseases as a long-term consequence. “Prion diseases are a collection of neurodegenerative diseases that are induced through the misfolding of important bodily proteins, which form toxic oligomers that eventually precipitate out as fibrils causing widespread damage to neurons,” she noted in her research paper.

“Stanley Prusiner first coined the name `prion’ to describe these misfolded proteins (Prusiner, 1982). The best-known prion disease is MADCOW disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy), which became an epidemic in European cattle beginning in the 1980s.

“It is now believed that many neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) may be prion diseases, and researchers have identified specific proteinaceous infectious particles linked to these diseases (Weickenmeier et al., 2019).”

The mRNA vaccines are designed with an altered sequence that replaces two adjacent amino acids. “This is done intentionally in order to force the protein to remain in its open state and make it harder for it to fuse with the membrane. This seems to us like a dangerous step towards misfolding, potentially leading to prion disease.”

Dr. Seneff points to a paper published by J. Bart Classen (2021), which proposed “that the spike protein in the mRNA vaccines could cause prion-like diseases, in part through its ability to bind to many known proteins and induce their misfolding into potential prions.”

Moreover, Idrees and Kumar (2021) proposed that the spike protein’s component is prone to act as a functional amyloid and form toxic aggregates. These authors described the ability “to form amyloid and toxic aggregates that can act as seeds to aggregate many of the misfolded brain proteins and can ultimately lead to neurodegeneration.”

Dr. Seneff also points to this troubling linkage. “It is clear that the vagus nerve is critical for transmission of misfolded proteins to the brain, because severance of the vagus nerve protects from Parkinson’s…Another pathway is through the olfactory nerve, and a loss of a sense of smell is an early sign of Parkinson’s disease. Ominously, diminution or loss of the sense of smell is also a common symptom of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

“There are many parallels between α-synuclein (the main protein found in Lewy body deposits in the brain of Parkinson’s patients) and the spike protein, suggesting the possibility of prion-like disease following vaccination. We have already shown that the mRNA in the vaccine ends up in high concentrations in the liver and spleen, two organs that are well connected to the vagus nerve.

“This means that mRNA vaccines induce an ideal situation for prion formation from the spike protein, and its transport via exosomes along the vagus nerve to the brain.”

Dr. Seneff sees a possibly dangerous situation that may arise in the future where a woman receives an mRNA vaccine for Covid and then conceives a child shortly thereafter. “The sperm would be free to take up RNA-embedded liposomes from the vaccine and convert them to DNA using LINE-1. They would then produce plasmids containing the code for the spike protein which would be taken up by the fertilized egg.”

“The infant that is born is then potentially unable to mount antibodies to the spike protein because their immune system considers it to be `self.’ Should that infant get infected with SARS-CoV-2 at any time in its lifespan, its immune system would not mount a defense against the virus, and the virus would presumably be free to multiply in the infant’s body without restraint.”

Drs. Seneff and Nigh conclude their paper with a stark warning: “Experimental mRNA vaccines have been heralded as having the potential for great benefits, but they also harbor the possibility of potentially tragic and even catastrophic unforeseen consequences.”
