Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
That was the headline. For a few hours.
I sometimes like to watch the Dark Horse podcast with biologists Brett Weinstein and Heather Heying. In their latest post, Brett called attention to an article in the web version of The Atlantic. The title is “COVID Shots Are Still One Giant Experiment.”
Rather, that was the headline until it changed, quickly. Now it doesn’t mention the word “experiment.”
However, the article still includes this line at the beginning of the fourth paragraph:
At the same time, COVID vaccines are still in a sort of beta-testing stage.
To be accurate, The Atlantic contends that the element of experimentation pertains to the difficulty in targeting the correct strain of COVID, because it has mutated many times.
They do not express concern about safety and side effects of the vaccines which have not, as far as I know, been thoroughly tested. That is what I’m concerned about.
Brett pointed out in a previous podcast that conducting medical experiments on people without their informed consent is a violation of the Nuremberg code. Seven doctors were hung in 1947 for violating that standard. But today, few people are concerned. Having declined the vaccine, I’m sure I don’t have standing to bring legal action.Published in
