Covid was formulated from snake venom, or some version of this theory. It all started with an interview Stew Peters had with chiropractic doctor, Bryan Ardis.
I like Dr. Ardis and he’s done a lot of good in exposing how dangerous Remdesivir and ventilators are to Covid patients, but I think he is out of his league, background-wise, when he starts theorizing about the similarities between anti-venoms and monoclonal anti-bodies. The highly respected Children’s Health Defense website agrees. Writing for them, Madhava Setty, M.D. says,
While it’s true there is some overlap between the effects of poisonous peptides present in some snake venom and those of SARS-COV2 spike protein, claiming COVID is ultimately derived from snake venom is a poorly substantiated hypothesis.
In an interview Monday with Stew Peters, Bryan Ardis, a doctor of chiropractic, attempted to connect SARS-CoV-2, the spike protein or simply the disease process itself known as COVID-19, to the deadly proteins in snake venom.
In the 30-minute, heavily produced conversation, Ardis did not explicitly state his opinion on whether COVID is caused by a virus or by widely dispersed toxins similar to the poisons in snake bites. Steve Kirsch, executive director of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, took issue with some of Ardis’ statements.
“We agree there is evidence that the virus is similar to snake venom,” Kirsch wrote on Substack. “But as for the other assertions (such as it’s a poison spread through the water), I’m not buying it.”
Dr. Meryl Nass, an internist and scientific advisor to CHD above, adds this caution, “‘Watch the Water’ with a Grain of Salt. Because snake venom is not the problem. Don’t let yourself get distracted.”
But the “Anti Covid pandemic” crowd is getting deeply distracted by these claims. Almost every email I received in the past two days was promoting the Peters-Ardis interview. Natural News bought into it. So did Infowars.com, and most other conspiracy commentators. Nass goes into a detailed but kindly rebuttal here:
Yes, we are being poisoned by a lab-made coronavirus and by vaccines designed to produce spike proteins which are well known to be highly toxic, in addition to stimulating a brief immune response against some SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses.
Many statements in the Bryan Ardis video are accurate, but some are definitely not. The conclusions are simply illogical. Bryan Ardis is a chiropractor. Because chiropractors may not prescribe medications, they have received no training in pharmacology (drugs and vaccines). Bryan has correctly warned us about safety issues with Remdesivir, after the drug reportedly killed his father-in-law, but his speculations about snake venom have no basis.
Snake venoms have multiple protein toxins that do lots of bad things to creatures the snakes want to eat. These include impairment of blood clotting, failure of neurotransmission to paralyze the prey, and even reduced heart and lung function via beta blocker activity.
Dr. Ardis mentions paralysis of the diaphragm. COVID doesn’t do this. Snake venom, when enough is injected, causes you to die a quick death. COVID doesn’t do that. In COVID, you die from the damage from spike to blood vessels, and by the excessive activation of the immune system in the wake of the viral infection. It usually takes 2 to 4 weeks to die from COVID. You can die quicker from COVID vaccines, or it can take longer, depending on the specific injury.
There are only so many ways to cause severe damage to people. It is not really a surprise that there is some overlap in activity of snake venoms with other activities that kill people, nor with human proteins.
Monoclonal antibodies: Dr. Ardis does not appear to understand that the term “monoclonal antibody” refers to a process by which antibody-producing cells are fused with other cells that can live forever. This produces a cellular factory for growing antibodies. You can make antibodies against almost anything, especially if you attach the right small molecule (a hapten) to what you want the antibody to bind to. Just because you can make monoclonal antibodies to snake venom and make monoclonal antibodies to COVID proteins (or almost anything else in the world) does not imply there is any similarity whatsoever between snake venom and COVID.
In his final statement, Dr. Nass is still supportive of Dr. Ardis and doesn’t want him totally disregarded. “Dr. Ardis has taught us a lot about Remdesivir. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater. But this snake venom stuff is hooey.” That is how I feel.
