When it comes to the safety and efficacy of the so-called COVID-19 vaccinations the public has been thoroughly divided and conquered. On one side of the carefully crafted argument, governments can’t get enough shots in enough arms to ward off a “pandemic” of unvaccinated people. The other side has as many excuses for avoiding these injections as it has members. So when a controversial study comes along showing that these injections may contain a toxic substance called graphene oxide the allowed spectrum of debate is quickly alight and the bigger picture is missed by all but a few.
The story of vaccines containing graphene oxide broke in late June when Ricardo Delgado Martin, Founder and Director of Quinta Columna, which calls itself a “free thinking movement,” published the the results of an analysis conducted by a Spanish research team at the University of Almeria. The analysis claims to have discovered graphene oxide in a vial of a Pfizer vaccine via electron microscopy and spectroscopy. The analysis can be read in English here.
It took a few weeks for this story to find it’s way into the English speaking world it would seem. Once it did, the mainstream media’s fact checkers were all over this story. Reuters, Full Fact, and Forbes among other establishment outlets have tried to debunk the study by assuring their readers that only an anti-vax QAnon conspiracy theorist would believe such nonsense. On the other side of the aisle, the analysis has been uncritically circulated which only adds to the problem.
As usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. The analysis conducted by the team at the University of Almeria has it’s flaws but concerns over the presence of graphene oxide in the Pfizer vaccines, and elsewhere in our environment, should be given serious consideration.
But first, let’s address some of the issues with the analysis:
- The analysis is an interim report needing further study.
- The analysis was commissioned.
- The origin of Pfizer vial used in this analysis is unknown.
- Graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide are, at times, used interchangeably.
- Comparative images of graphene oxide are of different magnification levels.
For an in-depth look at these concerns and others that arise from this analysis we recommend watching world class researcher, Whitney Webb’s recent appearance over at The Last American Vagabond where they dive into this analysis.
