A French peer-reviewed study concluded that for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, the risk of myocarditis skyrockets one week after vaccination.
The risk of myocarditis after mRNA vaccination was 8-fold and 30-fold higher than in unvaccinated control groups for BNT162b2 (Pfizer-BioNTech) and mRNA-1273 (Moderna), respectively.
The greatest association of myocarditis after the Moderna vaccine was a 44 times higher risk for people aged 18 to 24.
As for the Pfizer vaccine, compared to the same age group, the risk was 13 times higher.
Infection with the Chinese Communist Party virus resulted, in comparison, in a 9 times higher risk of the same disease.
Myocarditis refers to inflammation of the heart muscle, a life-threatening condition. There are many established causes for this heart condition. The main cause, according to the most recent discoveries of modern science, is viruses; but during the pandemic, COVID mRNA vaccines have earned a place among prime suspects for myocarditis.
The aim of the new study was to provide an assessment of the association with vaccines by gender and age groups.
“Both SARS-CoV2 infection and COVID mRNA vaccines have been associated with myocarditis. Know the affinity of spike protein for ACE2 receptors in heart and spike protein cardiomyocyte injury (cells of the heart), the association of myocarditis with the SARS-CoV2 virus or spike protein mRNA vaccination was not entirely unexpected,” cardiologist Dr. Sanjay Verma told The Epoch. times by e-mail.
Verma also thinks that The CDC analysis “incorrectly suggests” that the risk of myocarditis after SARS-CoV2 infection is higher than after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination.
“For myocarditis cases after SARS-CoV2, the CDC uses officially confirmed PCR+ “cases”, even if their own seroprevalence data demonstrates that many more people have been infected than officially compliant PCR+ “cases”. For example, seroprevalence data as of February 21, 2022 reveals that 75% (approximately 54 million) of all children have been infected, compared to 12 million officially confirmed PCR+ “cases” (i.e. the actual number of infected children is 4.5 times higher than PCR+ ‘case’). Therefore, when calculating the risk of myocarditis after SARS-CoV2 infection, the rate noted by the CDC should therefore be reduced by 4.5 times. So far, the CDC has not adjusted its COVID-19 morbidity and mortality data accordingly,” said the cardiologist, who practices in Coachella Valley, Calif.
The study analyzed 1,612 cases of myocarditis and 1,613 cases of pericarditis in France from May 12, 2021 to October 31, 2021, involving 32 million people aged 12 to 50 who received 46 million doses of mRNA vaccines.
It is limited by the exclusive use of hospital discharge diagnoses. Therefore, it does not include those who may have died before being hospitalized or those whose symptoms were not severe enough to require hospitalization.
“There have been reports (pdf) post-vaccination autopsy-confirmed myocarditis and anecdotal evidence from patients discharged from the ER and never admitted to hospital. Adjusting for these excluded subsets may result in an even higher risk than reported in this study. Follow-up of patients in this study was limited to one month after discharge. However, a precedent cardiac MRI study found that approximately 75% of patients with vaccine-associated myocarditis may have persistent MRI abnormalities 3-8 months after initial diagnosis,” Verma said.
The authors of the study did not analyze the effect of the booster because it is not yet recommended for young adults in France.
In the United States, however, booster shots are mandated by colleges and universities, employers, and even some state public health departments, regardless of age or prior infection.
“In a pre-publication follow-up their peer-reviewed study on post-vaccination myocarditis, the analysis revealed a continued additional risk of myocarditis after the booster vaccination. In fact, while many countries have refrained from recommending COVID vaccination in very young children because the risks do not justify the benefits, the United States is alone in recommending it in younger children,” said Verma said.
A research paper published on May 18 studied the pandemic control measures – which included vaccine and mask mandates, as well as isolation and contact tracing – of Cornell University, which was almost fully vaccinated, and found that these policies were “not compatible” with the Omicron variant and its rapid spread.
Sudden adult death syndrome
Recently, a new term has been thrown around in the media: “sudden adult death syndrome”, or SADS.
Underlying factors for SADS include undiagnosed myocarditis, inflammatory conditions, and other conditions that cause irregularities in the electrical system of the heart, thus triggering cardiac arrest.
Data compiled by the International Olympic Committee shows 1,101 sudden deaths among athletes under the age of 35 between 1966 and 2004, an average annual rate of 29 across all sports. Meanwhile, between March 2021 and March 2022 alone – a single year – at least 769 athletes suffered cardiac arrest, collapsed or died on the pitch, worldwide.
Among FIFA EU athletes (soccer/soccer), sudden death has increased by 420% in 2021. Historically, approximately five football players have died playing the game each year. Between January and mid-November 2021, 21 FIFA players died suddenly.
