Investigators in Sweden used Huh7 liver cells to see if mRNA from Pfizer's vaccine can be reverse-transcribed into DNA, as prior research shows the natural course of infection can cause DNA copies of SARS-CoV-2 sequences to be integrated into the genome of infected human cells. We discuss this further and expose the clear media bias and focus on why vaccinated shouldn't actually worry about the “what-ifs” and potential unknowns; as excessive worry can be harmful to your health and mindset.
