Can The mRNA Vaccine Alter DNA?
And What About That Pesky Reverse Transcriptase Everyone Seems to Forget?
The probability has always been high.

Based on basic sciences, the probability seemed quite high to me. I wrote about it in Dec 2020 on a post on IG, which I later took down as colleagues were demanding my license be sanctioned for misinformation and all kinds of scientists were flustered that I would dare say such a thing.
When I was a first year undergrad in Bio 101 I learned about reverse transcriptase.
It's an enzyme that writes mRNA back into DNA.
We make this inside our bodies. Viruses make it also and that's how they incorporate themselves Into our DNA.
I knew this a LONG time ago.
Before the vaccines were released upon the world, when I first learned they were all MRNA based (yes, even the J & J, that's a whole other convo), I remembered how mRNA gets turned BACK into DNA. Reverse transcriptase.
Permanently altering the DNA.
I frantically asked all my smarty pants friends and colleagues, "this vaccine is mRNA, what about reverse transcriptase?!"
Most all of them were silent as crickets. Either they didn't remember about reverse transcriptase or they didn't want to talk about it.
Then a study came out May 2021 showing that the SARS COV2 VIRUS ITSELF can incorporate itself into our DNA. Ok, not super excited about a potential lab made bioweapon being incorporated into my DNA, but what can we do, right? We are ALL going to be exposed so it is what it is. Maybe it would make me a super hero like Spiderman!
So...I sent that study out to all my smarty pants friends/colleagues and said, "Hey! Look here! The virus is using reverse transcriptase to incorporate it's mRNA into OUR DNA. Wouldn't this have implications for the vaccine as well?"
