There are definitely risks with anything that is processed or mass produced, including vitamins, foods, and yes...pharmaceuticals including vaccinations.
….Protein folding is possible, but is usually caused by pre-existing conditions, hereditary many of the times. Pharmaceutical products such as medications and vaccinations are known to contribute to some degenerate diseases that promote protein folding.
A Role for Protein Misfolding in Immunogenicity of Biopharmaceuticals
…..misfolding of therapeutic proteins is an immunogenic signal and a risk factor for immunogenicity. ……Over the past decades, the use of therapeutic proteins has become common practice in medicine ……
Protein misfolding is an intrinsic and problematic property of proteins, which underlies a variety of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease. These diseases are characterized by the occurrence of fibrillar deposits, classically termed amyloid, containing aggregates of misfolded proteins.
……experiments pointed out that biopharmaceuticals, like any other protein, are amyloidogenic and that misfolding, detected by amyloid markers, takes place in several preparations. These markers, however, are not necessarily specific for fibrillar amyloid, but also for smaller misfolded protein species.
….. Various Biopharmaceuticals Display Amyloid-like Properties upon Exposure to Conditions of Stress, Indicating Protein Misfolding — During manufacturing and storage, biopharmaceuticals may also become exposed to various conditions of stress that can potentially underlie protein misfolding and the formation of amyloid-like properties.
…….Our results point to a common mechanism by which the immune system perceives misfolded proteins. We hypothesize that this lies in the changed conformation of the protein backbone itself. This implies that the innate immune system may be activated by recognition of the amyloid-like properties of misfolded protein. …
There is no proof that vitamins can cause protein folding. May I ask where you heard this from?
The overall risks of these vitamins are minimal compared to the benefits.
Some people literally urinate their money buy buying low quality vitamins and supplements but there are good ones available for not much more money.
