Study Links COVID-19 Vaccine with Surging Cancer Rates

A preprint study has linked COVID-19 vaccines with rising cancer rates and called for further research on the matter.

The study investigated death rates from neoplasms, or an abnormal growth of tissue that is a characteristic of cancer.

The authors explained that neoplasm deaths had a consistent trend prior to 2020, although there was a “rise in excess mortality from neoplasms reported as the underlying cause of death” beginning in 2021 and continued increasing through 2022.

2020 saw an increased mortality of 3.4%, 2021 with 9.2%, and 2022 with 16.4%.

Describing the surge in mortality, the authors wrote, “This indicates a break from the existing trend in which people with cancer were increasingly dying of another condition or reason.”

While deaths in 2020 could be attributed to the negative health effects of widespread lockdown, the deaths in 2021 and 2022 “could be adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccines, which were rolled out from 2021 and prioritized for vulnerable groups such as those with cancer,” according to the study.

“Additionally, one cannot disregard the possibility of continuous COVID-19 infections or Long COVID being contributors towards increased incidence or severity of cancers,” the researchers noted.

For those aged 15 and older, excess underlying cause death rates “rose substantially” in 2022. “Individuals aged 5-14 also experienced excess death rates from neoplasms, but only in 2022 andwith low signal strength due to the small sample size,” the authors added.

Those older than 75 also saw a dramatic surge in neoplasm death rates, although those between the ages of 55-64 had a negative death rate, which was described as an “exception from the overall pattern of increasing excess deaths from cancers.”

In September 2023, Professor Dr. Phillip Buckhaults, an expert in cancer genomics and a professor at the University of South Carolina, expressed alarm about the presence of plasmid DNA in the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The Pfizer vaccine is contaminated with plasmid DNA, it’s not just mRNA,” Dr. Buckhaults stated during his testimony before the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Ad-Hoc Committee.

He emphasized the difference between RNA and DNA, explaining, “It’s different from RNA because it can be permanent.” Dr. Buckhaults added that the “DNA can and likely will integrate into the genomic DNA of cells that got transfected with the vaccine mix.”

He also shed light on the long-term implications, stating, “It’s also a very real theoretical risk of future cancer in some people.”
