Yes, I am aware.

And I also have heard that the "jazzing" of the immune system might also kick it into overdrive and cause autoimmune disorders where the immune system attacks the host.

Of course, one would expect new diagnoses for cancer to be declining substantially over time as we have vaccinated more and more and more.

Is there any evidence for that?
