Bret Weinstein on Biological Weapons

  • by

In a recent segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Tucker Carlson and evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein engaged in a gripping discussion. Their exchange covered a range of issues, including free speech, ideological polarization, and even the potential dangers of biological weapons.

The vaccines that people got, you may remember, I think we talked about it the last time I was here. People who get more than three of these shots have an interesting effect that none of us saw coming, which is the triggering of something called IgG-4. Ig means immunoglobulin so synonym for antibody. IgG is a class of immunoglobulin, and IgG-4 is a very interesting subclass. IgG-4’s purpose, its biological purpose, is to turn down an immune response. So if your body is reacting to something it shouldn’t react to, the nature has granted us a mechanism for turning down that reaction so that you don’t die from an allergy. Effectively, this is what allergens do, is they try to trigger that attenuation signal in order to get the body to stop reacting to something that it shouldn’t be reacting to. The fact that these shots seem to trigger the production of IgG-4 is fascinating. It could just be an unexpected consequence that nobody saw coming…

Dr. Weinstein earned a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Michigan, where he was given the Don Tinkle Award for distinguished work in Evolutionary Ecology, and he earned a BA in Biology from UCSC.
