Florida doctor Dr. Joseph Ladapo, citing a study that identified a high concentration of DNA molecules in mRNA vaccines, claimed that the COVID vaccine causes cancer.
Citing worries about cancer, Florida’s Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, is cautioning against using the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccinations.
According to Dr. Ladapo, a Canadian study surpassed the limits established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by finding “billions to hundreds of billions” of DNA molecules per dose.
He expressed his concerns about the high concentration of DNA molecules in the mRNA vaccines, along with lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) used to deliver medication into human cells, in a letter dated December 6 to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Mandy Cohen, and FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf.
Dr. Ladapo expresses concern that if LNPs are as successful at delivering the vaccine’s medication to human cells, they may also transfer contaminating DNA molecules at the same time.

He refers to a 2007 FDA guidance report on the permissible limits for DNA in vaccines, which highlighted the possibility of influencing the human genes responsible for turning healthy cells into malignant ones.
The risk that this DNA integration in vaccinations poses for problems with the heart, brain, blood, kidney, liver, bone marrow, lung, ovaries, and testes, as well as the administration and injection site of the vaccine, is also covered in the report.
“DNA integration poses a unique and elevated risk to human health, and to the integrity of the human genome, including the risk that DNA integrated into sperm or egg, gametes could be passed onto offspring of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine recipients.
In a press statement, Dr. Ladapo stated, “These vaccines are not appropriate for use in human beings if the risks of DNA integration have not been assessed for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.”
Instead of advocating for a broad rejection of all vaccinations, he is urging medical professionals to give non-mRNA COVID-19 immunizations and therapy priority while weighing the available data on vaccine dangers overall.
In April 2023, Dr. Ladapo found himself in hot water after alterations to a state-commissioned survey on mRNA vaccinations were uncovered through a public records request. He was accused of “exaggerating” the data to support his stance against administering the COVID-19 vaccine to “healthy” adults and children of specific ages.
He explained the removal of a certain data analysis from the first survey and justified the action as a scientific “revision.”
However, other people have also voiced concerns about the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, such as Jacksonville, Florida internal care physician Dr. Eduardo Balbona.
Having worked as a physician for thirty years, Dr. Balbona promotes evidence-based medicine, which places a strong emphasis on health maintenance and disease prevention through “education and a deliberative proactive approach to lifelong care.”
Certain of his patients felt “ill immediately afterward” and experienced a wide range of symptoms following single or repeated doses of the mRNA vaccinations.
It takes a few weeks for some folks. Thus, there [are] various damage patterns. Additionally, I believe that it’s virtually an anaphylactic reaction for some people.
“They have the vaccine, and from that moment on, they’re just not well. Often … they lose their blood pressure, or they have crazy blood pressure. “It either drops to 70 or goes to 200,” Dr. Balbona explained.
The Cleveland Clinic describes posterior orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) as a disorder that “causes your heart to beat faster than normal when you transition from sitting or lying down to standing up,” and it occurred in a number of his patients.
Since many of the symptoms of post-stroke syndrome (POTS), such as headaches, palpitations, dizziness, fainting, and chest discomfort, can develop gradually despite having a common etiology, POTS is a difficult condition to identify.
While there is still no known cure for POTS, therapeutic options include physical activity, exercise, and cardiac rehabilitation.
According to the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Balbona also treated patients with elevated blood pressure and those who had hypercoagulable states, which are characterized by excessive blood coagulation in the absence of bleeding.
The proportion of males in their late teens, early 20s, and early 30s who experienced pulmonary embolisms but had no underlying medical conditions or genetic predispositions that might have led to them also worried him.
According to the Mayo Clinic, a pulmonary embolism happens when a fragment—likely a blood clot—gets lodged in a lung artery and stops the blood supply.
According to Dr. Balbona, some individuals experienced myocarditis and pericarditis as soon as they received the vaccination.
“Pericarditis is inflammation of the outer lining of the heart, and myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle,” according to the CDC.
Chest pain, dyspnea, and “feelings of having a fast beating, fluttering, or pounding heart” are manifestations of myocarditis and pericarditis.
The CDC acknowledges that while cases are “rare” and most recover on their own, some patients experienced severe side effects following mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations.
However, data collection may be challenging since some patients may not be aware that they have either myocarditis or pericarditis because the symptoms can mimic anxiety reactions.
When patients with similar symptoms visited hospitals, nurses and doctors turned them away, claiming the problems were psychological, presumably thinking the patients were nervous or suffering from severe panic attacks, according to Dr. Balbona.
Additionally, he thinks that some vaccine recipients were administered “blanks” rather than shots that included active medication. Following their vaccinations, Dr. Balbona tested several patients and found that they did not have COVID-19 antibodies in their blood, as is expected following vaccination.
According to a study published in PLOS One, researchers have found that the COVID-19 vaccine itself causes long-term COVID-19 syndrome.
Dr. Balbona thinks that because the vaccines themselves have to be handled and stored carefully to preserve the medication within, some patients may have received shots that contained only saline solution.
Patients frequently express concern to him about getting sick after receiving one or more COVID-19 vaccinations.
“So if you had the vaccine several years ago, and you feel fine, and you have no problems, you’re likely okay,” he added.
In the end, Dr. Balbona thinks, the study will catch up with what he and other medical professionals are witnessing in patient care.
“At some point—I think that point is long past due—these vaccines will be withdrawn from the market. They’re not safe. They’re harming people. They may be harming people in ways that are durable. The recent DNA contamination is very concerning for increasing risk of cancer,” he said.
He did, however, note that “the underlying technology is something that’s actually very remarkable” despite the purported cancer risks associated with the use of mRNA in COVID-19 vaccinations.
“mRNA technology was misused in the COVID pandemic,” he said. “It should not be given indiscriminately.
“It’s gene therapy; there’s no question of that. And it has the ability to do some remarkable things in terms of good in the right situation. If you can turn on and off a gene or a protein in a patient who has a very serious illness, that’s fine.
“That may be a fabulous tool in the future, but you have to disclose the risks and the benefits.”
