WARNING SIGNS: Dr. Alexander Borovsky, M.D., Author & Commentator
Excerpt from "COVIDsteria: An Oral History of America's Great Reset" - see https://covidsteria.substack.com/p/covidsteria-table-of-contents
As with many so-called conservative pundits and anti-swabbing activists who had survived the Great Die-Off, most of the few experts who questioned the vaccine got hunted down during the purges. But unlike their conservative pundit peers, these experts have thrived since COVID Spring and the Great Reset of the new Administration. They have positioned themselves as the only scientific and medical experts Americans now trust.
Dr. Alexander Borovsky, M.D. is one such expert. He took time off from his busy schedule of testifying as an expert witness in the many ongoing court cases against surviving big pharma companies or medical device manufacturers to explain to me what his concerns had been with the vaccine...
I am not an anti-vaxxer, and I do not hold any personal grudges against big pharma companies or medical device manufacturers. But I have always had serious concerns about how vaccines, drugs, and medical devices were made, used, misused, or misrepresented by big pharma companies, regulators, and the entire medical community. And I have always looked at the science and any data backing it up before making any conclusions.
Before the COVIDsteria pandemic, when you were still allowed to write articles or be on TV questioning the motives of big pharma, I was often invited onto TV to air my doubts or concerns about something they were pushing onto the public. I had written extensively about such matters, and I had even given repeated testimony before Congress as well as in class action medical lawsuits.
What were your concerns about the risks associated with developing vaccines for COVIDsteria?
Vaccines made the traditional way from active and inactivated pathogens are generally safe for humans and animals alike as they all work along the same lines or principles. The pathogens are either modified to not replicate well in humans or animals or killed outright. Once vaccinated, the immune system will believe it is under attack by the original pathogen and mounts an immune response. The outcome would be the same if you were infected naturally, as the antibodies will look identical. The worst-case scenario is usually the recipient suffering from a mild form of the disease or a rare allergic reaction to something in the vaccine.
These traditional vaccines are also safe in terms of not directly causing mutations that all viruses undergo naturally. A person vaccinated will have what we call "sterilizing immunity." 1 They cannot become part of a chain of replication for a mutated strain that is more dangerous because they are incapable of transmitting the virus to someone else.
However, we have never had an effective vaccine for a respiratory virus – including the flu. Those annual flu shots the elderly are always encouraged to get are moderately effective at preventing infection from the particular strains circulating during any given year or flu season.
It also needs to be said that viruses such as Coronavirus and HIV generally cannot be effectively vaccinated against in the previously mentioned fashion for various reasons that vary depending on what virus family. Without getting too deep into the scientific or medical weeds, the reasons center on specific characteristics of each virus, their mutation patterns, and how B cells respond.
With Coronavirus-type viruses, there have long been two major problems associated with creating safe and effective vaccines. The first problem is that Coronaviruses can return to a virulent form in the body if they are not completely killed off when making the vaccine.
The second problem was that attempts to vaccinate animals against Coronaviruses had repeatedly led to dangerous antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) cases. 2 3 Instead of protecting the animal, the vaccine caused ADE making future Coronavirus infections much worse – to the point of killing the infected animal. The presence of existing antibodies from the vaccine caused an explosive increase in either the virus or the inflammatory response.
