Covid vaccines are in full swing around the world as people receive their jab. Unofficially, reports of reactions to the vaccine are deep including death. However, long-term reactions are only just being discovered. If we go deeper into cross-reactions and a study conducted in January 2021, (1) we can find a risk for cancer longer down the road. But, based on this new study, how are Covid vaccines connected to cancer?
Why is this vaccine truly different?
In January of this year – while the vaccines rolled out – an unrelated research project was released from Sloan Kettering Institute that details the immune system. (1) The discovery, which we reported on previously, made a connection between certain types of cells in the immune system and cancer. T cells, which are often depleted in certain diseases, will ferment to use energy in the event of infection. The jab for Covid is the second ‘vaccine’ that also increases T cells, whereas most previous vaccines focused solely on B cells and antibodies. (2)
How Covid vaccines increase the cancer switch
If this is true, by connecting datasets, we find that individuals who have some type of infection, whether it be asymptomatic or otherwise, will react to the vaccine with a specific response. T cells will start to ferment. This can inadvertently increase cellular mutation if it is promoted without control and if those cells are deprived of oxygen. Interestingly, face masks cause a change in oxygen levels during exercise. (4) It is unknown if face masks and Covid vaccines combined can increase cellular mutation if any infection is ongoing, however, cannabis can at least reduce the growth of cancer in any case.
How cannabis regulates the cancer switch
T cells utilize the Warburg Effect during infection with the same mechanism as cancer (cellular mutation). But, this effect is driven by a messenger protein that cannabis can mediate. Our previous report details how cannabis and the endocannabinoid system (ECS) can specifically prevent cancer. Thankfully, this type of prevention (PIK3 regulation) will work without necessarily reducing the antibody response to the Covid vaccine. A T Cell boost can be used in certain therapies, but is that specific boost controlled enough to prevent rogue cell proliferation and metabolism?
The answer to that question will likely be further answered in the next five or so years upon the release of future cancer vaccines. (5)
