    The CDC webset “Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine” states: “COVID-19 mRNA vaccines give instructions for our cells to make a HARMLESS piece of what is called the “spike protein.” The spike protein is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.”

    The study cited in this discussion says,

    “SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) infection relies on the binding of S protein (Spike glycoprotein) to ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) 2 in the host cells. Vascular endothelium can be infected by SARS-CoV-2,<sup>1</sup> which triggers mitochondrial reactive oxygen species production and glycolytic shift.<sup>2</sup> Paradoxically, ACE2 is protective in the cardiovascular system, and SARS-CoV-1 S protein promotes lung injury by decreasing the level of ACE2 in the infected lungs.<sup>3</sup> In the current study, we show that S protein alone can damage vascular endothelial cells (ECs) by downregulating ACE2 and consequently inhibiting mitochondrial function.

    We administered a pseudovirus expressing S protein (Pseu-Spike) to Syrian hamsters intratracheally. Lung damage was apparent in animals receiving Pseu-Spike, revealed by thickening of the alveolar septa and increased infiltration of mononuclear cells…”
