mRNA Vaccines Could Kill Covid Today, and Cancer Tomorrow 💉🧪🦠
The mRNA vaccines being developed to fight COVID-19 may be able to defeat cancer and other diseases. These vaccines instruct the body to make offending proteins, and in the case of COVID-19, ones that wrap around viral RNA of SARS-CoV-2. The immune system then homes in on these antigens, practicing for the day when the same proteins show up with the coronavirus attached. mRNA can tell our cells to make whatever protein we want, including the antigens of many other diseases besides COVID-19.
