Roman Zieliński seems to be intentionally misleading you by making an implausible circumstance that is technically possible sound like a likely outcome. This strategy is not unusual among people who argue against vaccination, because they have very little actual science to argue based on. The Central Dogma as stated by Crick says nothing about RNA vs DNA. It ...

I don't think there can be data on this, given how short the trials were. On the other hand, I don't think that scientists fear birth defects from COVID-19 vaccines (These vaccines' intended mechanism does not involve modifying your DNA, mind you) The only known mechanism I could find where a vaccine would cause birth defects was when the virus itself was ...

To supplement Bryan's answer (although I'm not going to say anything fundamentally different here), according to their proponents, mRNA vaccines are considered the safest genetic vaccines (in this integration regard) because mRNA transcription ("transfection") to proteins happens outside the nucleus. Quoting from a review mRNA vaccines do not ...

Dexamethasone and other steroids have well-documented psychological effects. There are so many citations available that it's not necessary to pick one in particular. The definition of "psychoactive" as used in medicine is "affecting the mind or behavior." Therefore, his usage was correct.

Consider this a very tentative answer, employing analogy rather than any hard data on the Pfizer vaccine. In general it can be fairly difficult to know exactly what component in a vaccine caused the allergic reaction. So, an option is indeed to test with the actual vaccine. An AAAAI Q&A on the matter points to this study that experimented with the ...

How long can it take to figure it out if a vaccine gives bad side effects? How about 20 years? Because deciding if the observed side effects are caused by a vaccine or not is not actually trivial: all three of Sabin’s OPV strains were approved for use in the US, and in 1961-62 they replaced IPV for routine immunization against poliomyelitis. As soon as OPV ...

Regarding calcium transport in the kidney: In contrast with the proximal tubule and the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle, the distal tubule reabsorbs calcium exclusively via the transcellular route. See also: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4491294/ Also, calcium availability in blood (and hence for filtration in the kidney) is ...

While visual changes from cataracts are probably more likely, it is possible that zoloft (generic name sertraline) could be causing your improved viion. It would be very unusual, as much more commonly it causes blurred vision rr double vision. Visual changes produced by serotonin reuptake inhibitors have become a subject of greater attention in the past few ...

By asking a few people I had access to and also searching in some of my reference books like Katzung, Martindale, and finally looking at Newborn Services Drug Protocol, I think I may have reached a conclusion. Respiratory depression is a possible side effect which could occur in neonates. The drug of choice is Naloxone, although it may not be used in the ...

Historically, vaccines eg 1955 polio vaccine had side effects due to manufacturing issues allowing live virus to appear in the vaccine in the Cutter company’s vaccine. In 1976, a swine flu vaccine was shown to have a risk of 1 in 100,000 of Guillaine-Barre Syndrome, a transient but serious neuromuscular syndrome. The 1998 rotavirus vaccine was shown to ...
