Are there any risks to testing weekly?
Forgetting for a moment all the issues with the unreliability with the PCR tests, the PCR tests were not created to be tested on someone either weekly or biweekly. I suspect they are safe if used every so often–which was likely the original intention. But for those folks who now are required to test weekly, what is the risk? Are there known side effects or other nasty consequences? My other question is since these are not vaccines with all the liability protections, who is liable if there turns out to be nasty side effects? The company or school or once again are we out of luck?
The tests are not just a swab but have substances on them. They make my nose burn for a few seconds. Anyone know of any studies or information out there outside of the fringe that might have this information?
No good can come from taking the tests; they have toxic sterilizing substances on them ( they should just be plain sterile) They further are rubbed so deep in your nasal passages that they are effectively rubbed mm from your brain. ( these chemicals cause cancer ) rub a toxic cancer causing agent on a sensitive location enough and what do you think happens?
Id worry about anything more than 1 test every couple mos. it is not a solution to not vaxxing and vaxxing is not the solutions either. Since when do healthy people need diagnostic tests?
nordicjack makes some good points here. I didn’t know the swabs might have dangerous substances in them so I’ll have to research that.
I am highly skeptical of the swabs. This isn’t coming from a medical standpoint but simply based on what I’ve seen over the last two years. I think it’s logical that tests are the “plan B” for the unvaccinated.
I know I’m taking the more conspiratorial standpoint but it seems like common sense at this point. I’ve taken three of those tests without consideration and won’t be taking anymore. If I have to take one for work, my plan is to hopefully offer them one I’ve already done in the past.
I had a covid test recently. I did not have to swab “up close to the brain”. Just around my nasal area. Not unpleasant at all.
I personally wouldn’t worry about the swabbing having chemicals that would be harmful. Is all your food organic? Even organic food has chemicals that can come from rainfall or the air. We are in contact with a lot of nasty chemicals in our environment, unfortunately.
The tests I take are the same. They do not go that far back. I’ve started taking saline with me and I flush my nose and blow after it is over with the hope that that will help remove whatever they just put in there. lol
I’ve read some horror stories from ppl on facebook groups. Even the local (finnish) media reported of a case where the swab stick had broken and remained in the nostril for several days causing inflammation etc. Also, I have read of some anecdotes of partial face paralysis and eye-sight problems that have occurred. I would opt for the salt water saline test where you ‘gargle’ the solution and spit it out.
I’ve made it now almost 2 years healthy and without having to test myself, and after these nostril horror stories I’m gonna stay away from them indefinitely.
