You seriously can't make this stuff up.
I think it's important for you all to read this paper and pass it on.
I watched a video lately about this graphene oxide hypothesis that provided a link to recently published paper entitled: “A Novel Graphene Quantum Dot-Based mRNA Delivery Platform” published in July 2021 in the journal ChemistryOpen. I will leave it up to you to confirm what page it begins on.1 (I simply can’t believe this is our reality.)
Just to be clear, I have no opinions formed on this subject yet. I rarely, if ever, jump to conclusions prematurely (as par for my own course), but when I see evidence that is irrefutably odd - be it in-and-of-itself or timing - I can’t look away. These non-look-away moments help me to form my conclusions. And I am very suspicious now that there might be more than meets the eye to this subject.
Here is what they say in the Abstract:
During the last decades, there has been growing interest in using therapeutic messager RNA (mRNA) together with drug delivery systems. Naked, unformulated mRNA is, however, unable to cross the cell membrane and is susceptible to degradation. Here we use graphene quantum dots (GQDs) functionalized with polyethyleneimine (PEI) as a novel mRNA delivery system. Our results show that these modified GQDs can be used to deliver intact and functional mRNA to Huh-7 hepatocarcinoma cells at low doses and, that the GQDs are not toxic, although cellular toxicity is a problem for these first generation modified particles. Functionalized GQDs represent a potentially interesting delivery system that is easy to manufacture, stable and effective.
Did you see it? They claim - in the abstract! - that the GQDs are not toxic but that they are also toxic to cells (Reactive Oxygen Species generation and lysosome damage to name a couple of ways). Psst, guys, if it’s toxic to cells, it’s toxic. Like cationic lipids. You can read more about cellular toxicity2 associated with this type of technology here.
The video is here if you want to watch it.
