Did taking the Covid vaccine increase the risk of cancer? Increasingly, we are hearing about the effects of both Covid and its vaccine.

Stories of people who got long-term Covid, people who repeatedly get it and continue to suffer from its effects. Also, stories of an increased risk of cancer as a result of having taken the vaccine. 

So, what is the link between the Covid vaccine and cancer?

Both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines are mRNA vaccines. mRNA, or messenger RNA, carries the message from your cell to help your body make proteins. 

For the vaccine to be effective, a substance known as spike protein had to be created. Hence, mRNA was used to send a message to create the spike protein.

Substack, an online publication I frequently read, presented evidence about the connection between mRNA and cancer. 

Essentially, the report proposed that the mRNA was responsible for producing long-lasting spike proteins and suppressing various processes that could result in cancer.

Specifically, older people were getting pancreatic, prostate, and ovarian cancer. If you are at risk, is there anything you can do? 

Of course, the basics are to eat healthy food, sleep well, and reduce stress.

But autophagy is one interesting phenomenon that comes up repeatedly in connection with cancer. Autophagy is the process by which your body removes its dead, toxic cells. 

There are many ways to achieve autophagy. Fasting for more than fourteen hours is one example. In a perfect world, if fasting is your chosen route, then a long fast over seventy-two hours, preferably without water, is ideal.

Numerous studies have shown that exercise induces autophagy in the body. So another excellent way to induce autophagy is to go for a long walk. The longer, the better. 

Since we are talking about older people having the greatest risk, if you are not fit enough to do either, start slowly.

Start by fasting without water for four hours. Or walk for nine minutes. It does not matter where you start. All that matters is that you got to your goal at the end.
