Below are edited replays with written summaries of individual speaker segments from Session I of our fifth Symposium, In the Midst of Darkness Light Prevails, held on December 10th, 2022 in conjunction with UK Column and Children’s Health Defense.
Welcome and Introduction
Journalist Taylor Hudak MA opened the symposium by noting that as we approach the end of 2022, “it is clear that we are at a critical point in our fight for freedom, bodily autonomy and human rights.”
Doctors for Covid Ethics’ documentation of evidence that mRNA vaccines are causing vascular and organ damage has gone viral, she said, “which demonstrates the manifest shift in the public discourse” underway. It is a shift that inspired the motto for this our fifth symposium: In the Midst of Darkness Light Prevails.
Sucharit Bhakdi: Why All mRNA Vaccines Will Cause Harm
20 minutes 30s
Prof Sucharit Bhakdi MD began with a call for physicians and medical scientists around the world to “go back to your textbooks and recall what we all should know.”
He provided an overview of “textbook immunology” on respiratory viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, which teaches that:
- From birth the immune system is equipped to recognise virtually all “non-self” proteins and destroy the the cells that produce them, including viruses and their many variants, on entry via the respiratory and oral tracts. Vaccines against respiratory viruses are, therefore, unnecessary.
- Intramuscular injections such as the COVID vaccines are, moreover, “doomed to fail”, as they induce blood-borne antibodies which do not act meaningfully in the respiratory mucous membranes. Dr Bhakdi reminded viewers that D4CE has been stressing this reality since early 2021.
- The key downfall of all gene-based mRNA injections is that they are bound to inflict damage by instructing cells, particularly in the body’s lymph nodes and blood vessels, to produce “non-self” proteins, whether the spike protein or any other protein, inviting the immune system to attack those cells.
- Such attack includes destruction by an immune effector system called ‘complement’ which induces a “violent” cell death. The mRNA-induced destruction of lymph (immune) cells in this way can promote impaired immunity and vulnerability to cancer. Destruction of cells on blood vessel walls (endothelial cells) can cause blood clots and vessel leakage, including leakage of vaccine into surrounding organs such as the liver, lung, brain and heart, with potentially irreversible and fatal consequences.
Dr Bhakdi concluded by urging doctors and scientists to “open your textbooks and go back and see whether what we have been saying has not been before your eyes for decades.”
Michael Palmer: Autoimmune-like Diseases Due to mRNA Vaccination – Accumulating Evidence
12 minutes 45s
Dr Michael Palmer MD followed Sucharit Bhakdi’s presentation by summarising the body of evidence from autopsies and biodstribution studies, which supports the mechanisms described by Dr Bhakdi.
The studies summarised by Michael Palmer have shown that:
- The COVID mRNA vaccine appears in the bloodstream shortly after intramuscular injection in animals, and accumulates in organs including the liver, spleen and ovaries.
- The injected synthetic mRNA and spike protein persist in human blood plasma and organs long after injection, remaining detectable in human tissue samples for up to nine months or more, and appearing in the breast milk of 5 out of 11 breastfeeding mothers.
- Dr Palmer described these findings as “ominous” in terms of vaccine injury.
- The injectable mRNA has also been found to be reversely transcribed, or “copied backwards” into DNA, conferring long-term cancer risks and the possibility of “indefinite persistence.”
- Histopathological studies following death post-vaccination reveal blood clotting and blood vessel destruction, spike protein accumulation in the spleen (denoting self-destruction of the immune system), brain and other organs, autoimmune-like hepatitis, lung inflammation and fibrosis, encephalitis and myocarditis.
In short, the evidence that the injected mRNA product inflicts grave damage all around the body, over extended periods of time, is manifest. Dr Palmer stressed that such vaccine damage is not rare.
Brian Hooker: Health Outcomes of COVID-19 Vaccinated Versus Unvaccinated
Dr. Brian Hooker, PhD, PE presented data on the incidence of various disorders associated with COVID vaccines. He placed those data in the context of “the grand experiment” that is global mRNA vaccination, noting that official clinical trials are still ongoing, some until 2026.
The data reveal that COVID vaccination increases the risk of shingles approximately five-fold, myocarditis 10 to 18-fold after the second shot in adults and 29-fold in adolescents, hypertensive crises 12-fold, Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) eight-fold, thrombocytopenia four-fold and cerebral venous thrombosis 12-fold. Compared to traditional flu vaccines COVID shots have been found to confer a staggering 42-fold elevated risk of death, and 56-fold elevated risk of life threatening reactions, per dose of vaccine.
Brian Hooker noted that if the CDC had warned the US population of the “blatant” myocarditis safety signal that emerged in the VAERS database as early as February 2021, when only 8.3% of the US population had been vaccinated, the “cataclysmic” increase in cardiac issues we have witnessed since that time could have been avoided. “The population should have been warned much much earlier,” he stressed.
16 minutes 45s
Dr Meryl Nass, MD, ABIM led a panel discussion with all speakers from Session I, during which she pointed out that regulatory agencies have admitted to approximately 50 percent of the RNA in COVID injections being unidentified. This means, she said, that neither the regulators nor the public know what the mRNA vaccines contain. Approximately 50 percent of the mRNA, moreover, is degraded, creating genetic debris that makes it impossible to scientifically determine the genetic composition of the shots, even if regulators inspected the vaccine contents, which they do not.
Prof Sucharit Bhakdi MD underlined the extent of regulatory negligence in Europe by tracing the European authorisation for 5 billion doses of mRNA vaccines to a single and profoundly misleading submission by the firm BioNTech, in May 2020.
BioNTech claimed that preclinical (safety) trials had been completed for its COVID products, but later confirmed in writing to Australian authorities that, “no safety pharmacology studies were conducted.”
Dr Bhakdi added that independently published research has demonstrated the vaccine nanoparticles’ lipid component alone to be highly inflammatory, and lethal in animal models, constituting “poison”, which belatedly “provides the safety pharmacological studies that BioNTech did not supply.”
Sucharit Bhakdi concluded with the “ray of hope” that the companies responsible for the fraud perpetrated on populations and taxpayers have provided documentary evidence of their own fraudulent conduct, paving the way for legal action.
Session I concluded with the song Hands off our Children by Joydah Mae.
