The Claim

You can detox from the COVID-19 vaccination poisons using a prescribed detox recipe.

Emerging story

There have been a number of misleading claims about the vaccine's liability since the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine to combat the widespread pandemic, particularly among anti-vaccination advocates. Recently, social media users claimed that vaccines contain toxic ingredients that can damage human DNA. They claimed that if you are already vaccinated, you can detoxify your body using certain recipes (a detox bath, drinks, or diets).

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar’s investigation finds the circulating claim misleading. Medical experts assert that COVID-19 vaccines do not contain poisoning ingredients that can harm the body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) listed the components of the vaccines by Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson, which contained different types of fats and oils, acids and stabilizers, salts, and sugars. The CDC stated that all COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals or manufactured products. 

Dr. Paul Offit of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia explained that the mRNA vaccines do not contain traditional metal-based preservatives such as thimerosal. The University of Cincinnati Health also said that most of the non-active ingredients on the list are used to stabilize the COVID-19 vaccines. 

Experts deny that the COVID-19 vaccines can be detoxed.  "It's just not physically possible," said Angela Rasmussen, virologist and adjunct professor at the University of Saskatchewan. Rasmussen added that some detox methods are dangerous and would not remove the vaccine once administered.

Experts at the University of Western Australia concluded that vaccines could not harm DNA. They stated that the genetic code is made up of a different, but related molecule to the vaccine mRNA is known as DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, but mRNA cannot insert itself into a person's DNA. 

False claims that vaccines can damage DNA were made due to a lack of understanding of the differences between DNA and mRNA.

According to experts, Pfizer/COVID-19 BioNTech's vaccine works by inducing an immune response against COVID-19 by using a fragment of messenger RNA (mRNA). 

Scientists generally agree that vaccines are free of harmful or DNA-interfering substances that could harm the human body or immune system. As a result, they do not believe it is necessary to detox from vaccination. Even if he tried, he would have no effect because the vaccine is irreversibly activated once injected into the body. Therefore, Misbar considers the widely distributed claim to be false and misleading.
