DNA in food or vaccines is not going to change your genes

A poll revealed widespread fear of DNA in food and vaccines, leading to calls for mandatory labeling. This pervasive pseudoscience myth suggests that consuming or injecting DNA can alter human genetics. However, DNA from food and vaccines is broken down and does not integrate into human genes. Education on DNA biochemistry counters these fears, explaining that DNA and its four nucleobases (CGAT) are consistent across all life forms, simply coding for proteins. Massive studies on animals fed GMOs and vaccinated humans illustrate no adverse effects from DNA consumption or vaccine administration. Such concerns are scientifically unfounded; eating GMO foods or getting vaccines does not alter or harm one’s DNA.

Maternal COVID vaccinations are safe for newborns — new study

A large population-based study published in JAMA confirms the safety of maternal COVID-19 vaccinations, showing vaccinated mothers contribute to a lower incidence of adverse neonatal outcomes, such as lower mortality rates and reduced risks of conditions like intracranial hemorrhage and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. This further supports the benefits of vaccinating pregnant individuals with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

COVID-19 rsv flu

CDC reports low COVID, RSV, flu vaccination rates

During the 2023-24 winter, the U.S. is facing increased risks of COVID-19, RSV, and influenza due to low vaccination rates. The CDC reports that only 21.4% of adults over 18 and 41.5% of those over 65 received the COVID-19 vaccine. Flu vaccination rates are better at 46.8% for adults and 74.1% for seniors. However, only 20.1% of seniors are vaccinated against RSV. Children’s vaccination rates have yet to be revealed.

COVID vaccine diabetes

COVID vaccine reduces the risk of post-infection diabetes

Research indicates a potential link between COVID-19 infection and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, with the COVID-19 vaccine shown to reduce this risk. Studies suggest that vaccinated individuals have a significantly lower likelihood of developing diabetes after a COVID-19 infection compared to unvaccinated individuals. This underscores the importance of getting vaccinated to mitigate the risk of diabetes.

turbo cancer

COVID-19 vaccines do not cause turbo cancer

In the era of misinformation, the claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause “turbo cancer” is unsupported by scientific evidence and is likely a myth perpetuated by anti-vaccine proponents. COVID-19 vaccines are extensively tested, safe, and vital in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for at-risk individuals like those with cancer (Approx. 83 words).
