Doctors and scientists are monitoring the reactivation of the smallpox virus, called varicella-zoster virus (VZV), after injections of COVID-19.
The smallpox virus is one of eight herpes viruses that can infect humans. Once a person is cured of smallpox, the virus never leaves the body, but after a few years it falls asleep in the nervous system, where it reactivates into a tumor or herpes zoster (HZ).
Federal health officials say there is no link between COVID-19 injections and cancer, but studies show that people who have been vaccinated have a higher incidence of cancer.
Israel was one of the previous countries to publish a series of six women (out of 491 participants) with autoimmune disease who developed blackmail 3-14 days after receiving the first or second dose of Pfizer COVID-19. None of the 99 participants in the control group was diagnosed with cancer. The study was published in April 2021 in the journal Rheumatology.
“To our knowledge, there were no reports of varicella-like skin rash or HZ in clinical trials of mRNA-based vaccines COVID-19, and our series of events reported this observation for the first time in patients in a relatively young age range: 36–61, mean age 49 ± 11 years. The authors wrote.
They hoped that the publication of the series of events would “raise awareness of the potential causal link between COVID-19 vaccination as a trigger for HZ reactivation in relatively young patients with persistent AIIRD”. [autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases]. ”
In another study in Taiwan, the researchers reported that three healthy men, aged 71, 46 and 42, developed the tumor two to seven days after the first dose of Moderna or AstraZeneca COVID-19 injection.
“HZ often does not occur after administration of other types of vaccines,” the researchers wrote. “However, we believe there may be a link between the COVID-19 vaccine and the occurrence of HZ.”
“One of the reasons is that the onset of vaccination is short-lived. Another reason is that these three patients had weakened immune systems, ”they added.
Today’s largest study, based on real data (pdf) from more than two million patients, found that those who were vaccinated (those who received COVID-19 within 60 days) had more cancer than those who were not. A cohort diagnosed with cancer within 60 days of visiting the health office for other reasons.
According to the researchers, the risk of developing cancer was estimated to be 0.20 percent for the vaccinated group and 0.11 percent for the unvaccinated group, and “the difference was statistically significant.”
“Varicella-zoster virus reactivation appears to be a potential ADR [adverse drug reaction] “For COVID-19 vaccines, at least for mRNA LNP-based formulas,” the authors wrote, adding that “vaccination against COVID-19 appears to increase the risk of HZ boosting.” [herpes zoster]. ”
Dr. Richard Urso, an ophthalmologist and specialist in drug design and treatment, told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program in April 2022 that he had three to five patients with COVID-19 that lasted a week or had problems after a COVID-19 shot. “Most of them have re-activated Epstein-Barr, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, CMV.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it has found no safety signal between the two, despite an increase in cancer after the COVID-19 shootings.
“The FDA has not seen a safety signal for overcoat / herpes zoster after the introduction of approved or approved COVID-19 vaccines,” Abby Capobianco, an FDA spokeswoman, told The Epoch Times last month, adding that the agency would “work diligently”. Make sure these vaccines are safe. ”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also claims that there is “currently no link” between COVID-19 vaccines and smallpox reactivation.
CDC spokesman Scott Pauli said any adverse reactions that occurred after receiving the COVID-19 leak were temporary and a positive sign that the vaccine was working.
“Some people have side effects from the vaccine, which are normal signs that their bodies are building defenses,” Pauli wrote in an email to The Epoch Times. “These side effects can affect their ability to perform daily activities, but they should disappear after a few days. Some people have no side effects, and allergic reactions are rare. ”
Adverse events of particular interest
Shingles was listed as one of the 1,291 incidents of particular interest in the Pfizer safety document (pdf) released by the FDA in March 2022.
Of particular interest are the adverse effects of adverse events (AESI) – they can be severe or severe, but can lead to a serious medical condition – and medical practitioners should pay attention to post-vaccination. Jesse Santiano, ambulance doctor and intern.
“The medical conditions on the list do not mean that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will cause all of this,” Santiano said on May 11. “Because we don’t have enough information to draw such a conclusion, at least not yet.”
The list of medical conditions applies not only to Pfizer, but to all COVID-19 vaccines administered worldwide. Anyone who has been injected with COVID-19 should then report to the vaccine manufacturer or to the Vaccine Adverse Events Notification System (VAERS) who have been diagnosed with the disease (months or years after the leak).
The first reports of people developing rabies after injecting COVID-19 into VAERS were in December 2020. As of June 10, 2022, the total COVID-19 reports in the database were 1.301 million, according to the latest VAERS data. 13,887 of his cases were of cancer.
For comparison, in the last three decades, a total of 1.12 cases of herpes zoster and vaccines or the flu vaccine7 have been reported, and more than 18,000 cases in more than 15 years.
The CDC says VAERS reports do not mean the vaccine has been adversely affected.
The Epoch Times contacted Pfizer for comment.
Shingles is usually characterized by pain on one side of the body or face, linear rashes or small blisters.
Many people with cancer experience one or more of the following symptoms: burning and shooting pain; fluid-filled blisters; if the skin is itchy, itchy, or numb; and fever, chills, headache, or stomach ache.
The disease usually resolves within two to four weeks after the onset of blisters, but some people may experience complications such as post-herpetic neuralgia, a persistent nerve disorder known as vision or hearing loss, and Ramsey Hunt syndrome, which causes facial paralysis.
When the kidneys are in the cystic stage, people with the tumor can spread the virus to those who have not been vaccinated against smallpox or smallpox.
According to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, about 1 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year, and “half of the population under the age of 85 is diagnosed with cancer for life.”
It is not clear what caused the smallpox virus to reactivate, but the most serious risk factor for inflammation is a weakened or damaged immune system. If your immune system does not work properly, the smallpox virus can reactivate.
Excessive stress, aging, taking immunosuppressants, or certain diseases and vaccines are factors that increase the risk of blackmail.
Although there is an increased risk of cancer in people over the age of 50, studies have shown that cancer can occur in young, healthy people after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. According to Keith Berkowitz, an internologist, cancer is often a secondary disease.
“Normally, a tumor is never a primary process, it’s usually a secondary process,” Berkowitz told The Epoch Times. “It’s something that leads to a breakdown in the immune system, which leads to their tumor formation.”
Treatment for mice should begin as soon as the rash appears and consists of one of three FDA-approved antivirals and painkillers to “reduce the duration and severity of the disease,” the CDC said. Cold, moist compresses, baths made of calamine lotion and colloidal oatmeal relieve itching.
According to Berkowitz, tumors can be treated with supplements such as lysine, quercetin, and vitamin D (taken early).
According to him, the ratio of lysine and arginine in the human body is especially important when it comes to cancer.
“The spread of shingles requires the proliferation of the virus and the amino acid arginine, which helps the herpes virus to multiply. Lysine prevents arginine and helps prevent the spread of herpes, ”said Berkowitz.
Lysine and arginine are essential amino acids needed to help the body build proteins. Unlike arginine, the body cannot produce lysine on its own, and it can only be obtained from certain foods or supplements. During the onset of spinach disease, it is recommended to avoid arginine-rich nuts and seeds, tofu and chocolate, and other foods.
Quercetin is a natural pigment (flavonoid) found in many vegetables, fruits and grains that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, “helping to reduce swelling, kill cancer cells, control blood sugar and prevent heart disease,” says webmd. .with the. According to Berkowitz, quercetin “suppresses viral replication” in tumors.
As for vitamin D, Berkowitz explains: it “acts as an effect modifier for the entire spectrum of herpes zoster in relation to disease susceptibility, appearance, pharmacological administration, and complications during treatment.”
Studies show that in addition to bone health, vitamin D plays an important role in immune function and inflammation.
In addition to lysine, quercetin, and vitamin D, Berkowitz recommends taking probiotics such as lactobacilli to help boost your immune system.
“Probiotics like lactobacilli can help treat herpes by boosting your body’s immune system,” Berkowitz said. “Specific peptides are found in lactobacillus and are essential for stimulating a rapid immune response in the body. Once activated, the immune system can perform the function of protecting your body.”
People with symptoms should consult their doctor and find out what treatment they need. People with facial tumors should seek medical attention immediately.
To prevent the disease, the CDC recommends a blackmail vaccine for the elderly aged 50 and older and for people 19 and older whose immune systems are “weakened by disease or therapy.”
