Fact Check: Gene Therapy? Or not Gene Therapy?

Have you noticed the increasing disconnect between what the mainstream media reports and what is being said in press conferences and Big Pharma meetings, documents & conferences, largely away from public scrutiny?


Here's an example - plenty of articles to be found "debunking" the idea that mRNA vaccines as gene therapy.

"Fact Check-mRNA vaccines are distinct from gene therapy, which alters recipient’s genes"

The latest antivax false claim: mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 are not vaccines but “medical devices” or “gene therapy”

Joe Rogan falsely says mRNA vaccines are ‘gene therapy’

Yet here we have Stefan Oelrich, who has been a member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and head of the Pharmaceuticals Division, headquartered in Berlin, Germany, since November 1, 2018, proudly claiming how mRNA vaccines are making gene/cell therapy acceptable to the public.


"For us therefore, we're really taking that leap, err, us as a company, Bayer, in selling gene therapy which to me is one of these examples where really we're going to make a difference, hopefully, moving forward.


There's some err, ultimately the mRNA vaccines are an example for selling gene therapy. I always like to say if we had surveyed 2 years ago in the public, would you be willing to take gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body we would have probably had a 95% refusal rate.


I think this pandemic has also opened up that opportunity"



And then there's this:

Consider it fact checked - but not by a Bill Gates affiliated organisation.

mRNA 'vaccines' most definitely are gene therapy.
