In August 2022, provisional life expectancy estimates1,2 for 2021 were released, showing Americans had lost nearly three years of life expectancy during 2020 and 2021. In December 2022, the finalized mortality report3 confirmed these shocking data.

URGENT: 17 percent of teenagers had heart symptoms after their second Pfizer mRNA jab, a new peer-reviewed paper shows

mrna vaccines
1 percent had abnormal ECGs; 1 in 1000 had myocarditis or significant arrhythmias.

Researchers in Taiwan have added to the increasingly negative picture of the impact the mRNA Covid vaccines have on the hearts of young men.

The researchers conducted electrocardiograms (ECGs), which measure the heart rhythm, on 4,928 high schoolers in Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, before and after their second Pfizer shot. Over 90 percent of the students were male.

They found 51 students had significant changes in their ECGs after the second Pfizer jab. One of those was diagnosed with myocarditis, and four more had "significant" heart rhythm disturbances. Those included a student with premature ventricular contractions, which can raise the risk of sudden cardiac death.

Why obesity is more dangerous for men

A newly published study from York University sheds light on the biological underpinnings in sex differences in obesity-related disease, with researchers observing "striking" differences in the cells that build blood vessels in the fatty tissue of male versus female mice.

Men are more likely than women to develop conditions associated with obesity such as cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes, says York Professor Tara Haas with the Faculty of Health's School of Kinesiology and Health Science.

Surgery and drugs recommended for obese children by American Academy of Pediatrics

obese child
The American Academy of Pediatrics' new clinical guidelines for treating childhood obesity recommend weight-loss drugs and surgery, prompting some to ask why the academy is focused on profit-generating treatments rather than addressing the root causes.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on Monday issued new clinical guidelines for treating childhood obesity, recommending physicians offer weight-loss drugs and surgery to obese children.

The guidelines, amended for the first time in 15 years, highlight the "complex genetic, physiologic, socioeconomic, and environmental contributors" to obesity — but the recommendations focus on treatment rather than prevention and don't address potential adverse effects of medications and surgeries.

Excess mortality before and after vaccinating the elderly

On Friday, I posted charts showing that excess mortality is negatively related to elderly vaccination in both Europe and the U.S. In other words: European countries and U.S. states with higher elderly vaccination rates have seen less excess mortality since the pandemic began.

I argued, therefore, that focussed protection culminating in voluntary vaccination of high-risk groups was the right strategy all along - which is what the Great Barrington Declaration called for.

One objection to my aggregate-level analysis is that the relationships between excess mortality and elderly vaccination could be confounded by other variables. In fact, the relationship in the European sample was much weaker when controlling for healthcare spending - which is evidence of confounding.

On the other hand, with a sample size of only 30 countries, it is not always possible to disentangle the effects of correlated predictors. And in the larger American sample, the relationship remained strong when controlling for healthcare spending.

Dramatic figures link more Covid jabs with more illness

covid vaccine
A nurse friend who did not want to hear when I first questioned Covid jab safety two years ago is now furious about having been bludgeoned by the NHS into having three shots. She survived the first two but had massive bleeding after the third. Looking more deeply into the data, she found to her horror that the 'safe and effective' claim is completely unfounded.

I suspect there are hundreds of thousands of other healthcare workers feeling the same sense of betrayal, and that this is contributing in a major way to the current staffing crisis.

My friend's experience is exactly in line with new figures from Australia showing a dramatic dose-response relationship between the number of jabs and the risk of having to go into hospital with Covid or dying from it.

The New South Wales (NSW) data, for the two weeks ending December 31, are a rarity in that they include vaccination status.

How many lives did the Covid vaccines really save?

covid vaccine
Steve Kirsch asked the following question:
"Based on your analysis, what is the decrease in all-cause mortality from Covid specifically attributable to the vaccines? For an average society like America. So, will it save on average one life per 10,000? One life for 20,000? What would be your best guess? Or did you do absolutely nothing and not saved any lives at all?"
Before we answer we'd like to clarify some ambiguity in the question. All-cause mortality following a vaccine roll-out is the only rational way to assess the efficacy of the vaccine because it tells us whether the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks; if all-cause mortality rates are lower in the vaccinated then we can conclude that the vaccine must be saving more people from dying from the disease than it is killing from adverse reactions to it.

Any claims about the vaccine reducing the number of covid deaths are therefore irrelevant in assessing efficacy without considering the overall impact on all-cause mortality. Even if the vaccines really did save 20 million from covid deaths then it would not be effective if it led to more than 20 million deaths from adverse events.

The forgotten side of medicine: What can we learn from 'cause unknown?'

news stories
© Unknown
One of my relatives (who is unaware of this blog) excitedly gave me a book yesterday that she told me I had to read.

After I read it, I realized it had a few things going for it which necessitated discussing it with an audience that is already well versed in this subject.

First and foremost, the format in which the book (at least the paper version) is presented makes it an excellent gift (I wish I had realized this sooner than Christmas eve). Since the topic of vaccination is quite complicated and requires dispelling many flawed narratives, there's no way to get around that problem without a lot of densely packed text — I've written over 400,000 words here and I still have only scratched the surface of what I feel needs to be discussed on the vaccine topic.....

Cause Unknown solves this problem by being tightly packed with provocative color images that tell the same story again and again and again — a lot of people started to die suddenly or became disabled in a completely unexpected way immediately after the COVID vaccines entered the market. This is an excellent approach because it's simple enough for people to process without getting overwhelmed by the complexity, and it repeatedly provides the human face to these tragedies so people can relate to them rather than disassociating into its overwhelming details and technicalities.

Comment: Interesting read pointing out the dysfunctional and lazy approach to healthcare via medical herd mentality and the vectors that influence care choices.

Dr Kerryn Phelps reveals 'devastating' Covid vaccine injury, says doctors have been 'censored'

Kerryn Phelps and Jackie Stricker-Phelps.
Dr Kerryn Phelps has broken her silence about a "devastating" Covid vaccine injury, slamming regulators for "censoring" public discussion with "threats" to doctors.

Former federal MP Dr Kerryn Phelps has revealed she and her wife both suffered serious and ongoing injures from Covid vaccines, while suggesting the true rate of adverse events is far higher than acknowledged due to underreporting and "threats" from medical regulators.

In an explosive submission to Parliament's Long Covid inquiry, the former Australian Medical Association (AMA) president has broken her silence about the "devastating" experience — emerging as the most prominent public health figure in the country to speak up about the taboo subject.

"This is an issue that I have witnessed first-hand with my wife who suffered a severe neurological reaction to her first Pfizer vaccine within minutes, including burning face and gums, paraesethesiae, and numb hands and feet, while under observation by myself, another doctor and a registered nurse at the time of immunisation," the 65-year-old said.

Why is the 'vaccine' killing our young men and women?

Author's Note: A detailed compilation of the epidemic of sudden deaths in our healthiest members of society can be found within Cause Unknown. Damar Hamlin was extremely fortunate to collapse where he did and medical care was immediately available, in almost any other setting as many of the examples within Cause Unknown show, he likely would have died (this has also been demonstrated for SIDS following vaccination).
I have long been interested in studying how pharmaceutical drugs injure people. Before COVID-19, while quite common, this issue was relatively unknown, because the media — which receives significant sponsorship from the pharmaceutical industry — was rarely willing to cover this subject. Because of my interest, I've focused on trying to understand how the COVID-19 vaccines injure people, such as causing sudden adult death syndrome.

Presently, I believe the most probable culprit for the vaccine injuries is the spike proteins they produce. Almost all of the vaccine side effects I've observed have a mechanism that can be linked to a consequence of the spike protein, and the spike protein is the only common factor present in the following (all of which have overlapping symptoms):
  • Severe COVID-19
  • (Actual) Long-haul COVID-19
  • mRNA spike protein vaccine injuries.
  • Adenovirus spike protein vaccines (J&J and AstraZeneca).
