COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA — Testifying before the South Carolina Senate’s Medical Affairs Committee on September 14, cancer genomics expert Dr. Phillip Buckhaults expressed deep concerns about the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
Buckhaults, a biochemist and molecular biologist, is a professor at the University of South Carolina and was originally positive to the mRNA vaccine rollout. But analyzing empty vaccine vials given to him by a friend who used to lead the state’s vaccine program, Buckhaults says he made a shocking discovery: DNA plasmids in the residue.
“I'm kind of alarmed about this DNA being in the vaccine,” Buckhaults said. “DNA is a long-lived information storage device. It’s what you were born with, you're going to die with and pass on to your kids. So, alterations to the DNA…well, they stick around.”
In the hearing, Buckhaults stated that some of the side effects that have been reported from the vaccine may be caused by this DNA contamination.
He said that DNA is different from RNA because it can lead to permanent changes in the body.
“It could cause theoretically... a sustained autoimmune attack towards that tissue. It's also a very real theoretical risk of future cancer in some people. There's probably about 200 billion pieces of this plasmid DNA in each dose of the vaccine,” the genomics expert said.
Buckhaults wants vaccinated people to be tested to see if any of the foreign DNA has integrated into the genome of their stem cells.
“This is not terribly expensive to do these kinds of tests,” he added, “But there has to be a system where professors are not going to be penalized for producing results that are counter to what the party line is supposed to be,” he added.
Another expert in genetics, Dr. Kevin McKernan, has pointed out similar findings after studying the mRNA vaccine.
