Science is always evolving. So are CDC’s facts.
The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention have scrubbed an important mRNA “fact” from their website. Namely, that “mRNA and spike protein do not last long in the body”.
It used to be a fact. Now it’s not a fact.
But don’t call it “flip-flopping”; it’s the “evolution of science”.
Science is always evolving, that’s why they did it. They’ve done the same with their new, “streamlined” COVID guidelines. It’s a good thing.
And now, by removing this mRNA information from their website, the CDC is basically telling us that the mRNA and spike protein do, in fact, last long in the body.
Science has yet to determine how long, but it’s certainly longer than the CDC told us initially.
And it’s definitely not a myth like the media says:
A common myth of vaccines that has appeared in recent months is the accusation they remain active in the body for extended periods of time – a claim which has increased vaccine hesitancy in some people.
However, vaccines are cleared from your body in mere days or weeks. It’s the immune response against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that appears to last for a long time.
Fact check: false (based on science).
So if we visit the “Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines” page from the CDC website, we’ll see that there are now only 2 facts instead of 3.
The first one is true:
mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cannot give someone COVID-19 or other illnesses.
mRNA vaccines do not use any live virus.
mRNA vaccines cannot cause infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 or other viruses.
The second one is not even a fact because it’s highly contentious:
They do not affect or interact with our DNA.
mRNA from these vaccines do not enter the nucleus of the cell where our DNA (genetic material) is located, so it cannot change or influence our genes.
Based on what I’ve seen, there’s a good chance that this will also be proven wrong, once the science “evolves” again that is.
The third one is the one that has been scrubbed:
The mRNA and the spike protein don’t last long in the body. Our cells break down mRNA and get rid of it within a few days after vaccination. Scientists estimate that the spike protein, like other proteins our bodies create, may stay in the body up to a few weeks.
So we’re left with only one real fact.
But don’t call it flip-flopping; it’s the evolution of science.
