I already know what some of you are thinking. It was my first thought. The transplant patient's name is David Bennett, Sr.

Pig hearts have been transplanted successfully into baboons by Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin, a professor of surgery at University of Maryland School of Medicine . . .

Of course, that's just a name. Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin. And as far as I know, Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin hasn't received a heart or any other organ from a pig.

I got that from the New York Times article. Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin is named as one of the researchers who is developing this approach, known as cardiac xenotransplantation, but I see no indication that he was part of the team that did the transplant surgery.

Pig tissues are commonly used for humans with heart valves in need of repair. But an entire heart from a pig--this is groundbreaking.

There's a longer report, lurking behind a paywall, although you may be able to get it as a "freebie."

He shouldn't have taken those covid shots, then maybe his heart would've been ok.

I read the entire article three times to ensure I didn't miss any mention of COVID vaccination.
Nothing mentioned so, either you know something we don't, have another source or are making another unfounded statement. I have my doubts about the first two options.

Of course there's no basis in fact for his comment. He's so obsessed with the anti-vax mentality, that he can't help himself.
