The idea that there are web videos purporting to show that magnets, metal spoons, and even cell phones are capable of sticking to the upper arm where an individual received a Covid-19 injection sounds totally illogical. After all, you would think that the force of gravity would cause these objects to fall to the ground. With an open mind, take a look at this 2-minute video of a Mexican TV program where this phenomenon was observed.
What Could Account for This Bodily Reaction?
Let’s start by considering basic biology: Our blood contains iron. As explained on University of California San Francisco’s web page entitled, “Hemoglobin and Functions of Iron:”
About 70 percent of your body’s iron is found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin and in muscle cells called myoglobin. Hemoglobin is essential for transferring oxygen in your blood from the lungs to the tissues. Myoglobin, in muscle cells, accepts, stores, transports and releases oxygen. Iron also is needed for proper immune function. About 25 percent of the iron in the body is stored as ferritin, found in cells and circulates in the blood.https://www.ucsfhealth.org/education/hemoglobin-and-functions-of-iron
However, the blood form of iron is not identical to the base metal that sticks to magnets. As stated on a website called Little Science Questions:
The difference between blood iron and metal iron is how they are arranged. Metal iron forms a crystal box structure. The iron in your body is contained in two proteins called hemoglobin and myoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in your blood that carries oxygen and carbon dioxide. It is made of four protein molecules, each of which have a compound called heme. The heme compound is the part that contains an ion of iron. It is this iron that is responsible for the red color of your blood.ARE IRON THE METAL AND THE IRON IN YOUR BLOOD THE SAME THING?, little science questions
Now let’s dig deeper into the question by considering the findings of a 2014 study published by Methods in Molecular Biology that was entitled “Superparamagnetic nanoparticle delivery of DNA vaccine.”
The efficiency of delivery of DNA vaccines is often relatively low compared to protein vaccines. The use of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) to deliver genes via magnetofection shows promise in improving the efficiency of gene delivery both in vitro and in vivo. In particular, the duration for gene transfection especially for in vitro application can be significantly reduced by magnetofection compared to the time required to achieve high gene transfection with standard protocols. SPIONs that have been rendered stable in physiological conditions can be used as both therapeutic and diagnostic agents due to their unique magnetic characteristics.Fatin Nawwab Al-Deen et al, PMID: 24715289 DOI: 10.1007/978-1-4939-0410-5_12
The argument against the idea presented in the 2014 study is that what is being administered are messenger RNA vaccines, not DNA injections.
