WHOA: Prof. Finds Nanoparticles and Ethylene Oxide on COVID Test Swabs

In the News

There have been so many questions surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines, but there has also been some speculation over the swabs.

I have often wondered why they are swabbing so often with people?

Is there any potential harm that could from that?

Why would you swab for something that you are not displaying any symptoms for?

Every day children and adults are swabbed before they can attend classes or work, and that cannot be good for anyone.

That is why this commentary is so fascinating and actually does lend credence to my gut reaction feeling that something is wrong.

I ask you to please share this information with any parents you know to ensure children aren’t subjected to these dangerous, invasive nasal swabs any longer.

Prof. Werner Bergholz has researched the test sticks utilized for COVID testing on the global population.

Bergholz is a former professor of electrical engineering with a focus on quality and risk management at the Jakobs University in Bremen. He previously worked for 17 years in chip production management at Siemens.


In the video below, Prof. Bergholz discusses the examination of the swabs that showed evidence of ethylene oxide (EO).



In case YouTube deletes the video, here’s a backup on Odysee.



What are the potential dangers of ethylene oxide?

The CDC explains:

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends that ethylene oxide be regarded in the workplace as a potential occupational carcinogen, and that appropriate controls be used to reduce worker exposure. These recommendations are based primarily on an industry-sponsored study demonstrating that ethylene oxide is carcinogenic in experimental animals. In this study, ethylene oxide was associated with increases in leukemia in female rats and peritoneal mesotheliomas (malignant tumors) in male rats. There has been widespread recognition of the mutagenic potential of ethylene oxide, and recent evidence demonstrates adverse reproductive effects in mammals, which also are of public health concern. In addition, limited epidemiologic investigations at two worksites provide evidence that excess risk of cancer mortality may exist for the ethylene oxide workers studied. Some workers are on occasion exposed to relatively high concentrations of ethylene oxide, particularly where it is used for fumigation and sterilization. On the basis of this information, NIOSH requests that producers, distributors, and users of ethylene oxide, and of substances and materials containing ethylene oxide, give this information to their workers and customers, and that professional and trade associations and unions inform their members.

The Expose added:

“By accident I stumbled on these [swab] sticks that says EO on them.  I looked into this and I found ethylene oxide which is anything else but a harmless gas,” Prof. Bergholz said, “if they are gassed, then it is sure that residues of ethylene oxide are on the test sample sticks and the swabs.”

Prof. Bergholz documented his research: ‘Risk analysis Implementation of rapid Covid-19 tests and through PCR tests’.  The document is in German but we have translated it, using Google translate, and attached a copy of the English translation below.

His document begins: “The rapid antigen tests contain gold nanoparticles and in at least one case a chemical that has not been approved in Europe and has now received an exemption. All of these substances are harmful to health and the environment. All package inserts for rapid tests that have been examined to date contain chemicals that are hazardous to health. A spit test is based on carbon nanotubes, also a nanomaterial that is fundamentally subject to the European REACH chemicals regulation.”

All swabs that Prof. Bergholz analysed contained the carcinogenic and mutagenic substance EO, 50 times the amount of EO than is permitted.


In addition to chemicals found on the swabs, pieces of the swabs break off. “They clearly leave parts in the body that is unacceptable,” Prof. Bergholz said, “and this again is hard to understand that the authorities ‘push the rod along’, really, and don’t do anything.”

Prof. Bergholz has been pointing out for about six months that there is a health risk to using these tests but no action has been taken.  The only response so far has been to mark test swabs as sterilised by radiation, “R”. The swabs that are marked as sterilised by radiation does not seem a credible claim, said Prof. Bergholz.


Sterilising medical devices with radiation, cobolt-60, is laborious, time consuming, requires certain dosages and facilities that can perform the procedure.  This is why he feels the “R” claim is unlikely to be true and they are, in reality, using another sterilisation method, EO, for test swabs even when it is labelled “R”.

Ethylene oxide is highly toxic – it causes cancer, it damages DNA – and it is found on the Covid test swabs.
