'Unethical' and up to 98 times worse than the disease: Top scientists publish paradigm-shifting study about COVID-19 vaccines

A team of nine experts from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and other top universities has published paradigm-shifting research about the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccines and why mandating vaccines for college students is unethical.

This 50-page study, which was published on The Social Science Research Network at the end of August, analyzed CDC and industry-sponsored data on vaccine adverse events, and concluded that mandates for COVID-19 boosters for young people may cause 18 to 98 actual serious adverse events for each COVID-19 infection-related hospitalization theoretically prevented.

The paper is co-authored by Dr. Stefan Baral, an epidemiology professor at Johns Hopkins University; surgeon Martin Adel Makary, M.D., a professor at Johns Hopkins known for his books exposing medical malfeasance, including "Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Heath Care"; and Dr. Vinayak Prasad, a hematologist-oncologist, who is a professor in the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, as well as the author of over 350 academic and peer-reviewed articles.

CDC admits post-vaccine myocarditis concerns that were labeled Covid misinformation are legit

In context, the CDC's latest numbers about post-vax myocarditis represent a significant departure from last year's narrative pushed by health bureaucrats and the media.

When reports first surfaced in 2021 that some cases of myocarditis — the inflammation of the heart muscle, potentially leading to blood clots and heart attack or stroke — were potentially associated with the Covid-19 vaccine, the corporate media and its fact-checkers were quick to label them as misinformation, saying the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh its small risks.

A year later, though, the media can no longer deny that what they called misinformation actually has data to back it up. As Matt Shapiro detailed in his Substack post on the matter, "Last year's misinformation on vaccine-associated myocarditis in young men is this year's well-established fact."

According to Vaccine Safety Datalink surveillance data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted in 2022, within a week of receiving the "Dose 2 Primary Series" of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, there were 14 verified cases of myocarditis or pericarditis among the 102,091 males aged 16-17 who got the shot. Among the nearly 206,000 12-15-year-old males who received the same series, 31 cases were confirmed within a week.

'Hot lots' turned getting Covid vax into Russian roulette

People wait to be given a Covid-19 vaccine in Nice, France, April 29, 2021.
This post is short, but it took twenty+ hours to research and edit. The source videos and other references are at the end. As I slowly crawled through these ideas, I created an essay you can read in just a few minutes. If you listen to the audio, you need to also look at the charts. Your life depends on knowing about this.

Before you get into the depressing stuff, watch this. It's accurate, up-to-date, and laugh-out-loud funny:


To to test their poisons, Pfizer and the other Pharma companies killed us like lab rats. "Hot lot" is a phrase they would rather you never hear. It refers to a defective product. A commercial example is baby spinach recalled for salmonella contamination. Imagine if the company was testing different doses of salmonella to find out how much was needed to kill you or make you sick.

Eating behaviors of parents play a role in teens' emotional eating

Emotional eating, or eating as a coping mechanism for negative, positive, or stress-driven emotions, is associated with unhealthy dietary patterns and weight gain. A research article featured in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior discusses adolescent vulnerability to emotional eating and how various feeding practices used by parents, such as restriction, food as reward, and child involvement, influence eating behavior.

"Emotional eating was previously found to be more learned than inherited. This study examined not only the interaction between parents when feeding their children, but also what children learned from watching their parents eat," said lead author Joanna Klosowska, MSc, Department of Public Health and Primary Care, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.

The initial study was conducted in 2017 with 218 families. Additionally, longitudinal data collected in 2013 were also available. One parent from each family completed the Child Feeding Questionnaire, as well as the Child Feeding Practices Questionnaire, and both adolescent and parent completed the Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire. Emotion regulation was assessed with the Dutch version of the child-reported FEEL-KJ questionnaire. The adolescent's body weight and height were measured by researchers.

Ultraprocessed food — The worst choice for planet and health

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) and its allied Great Reset minions, a traditional whole food diet is not only "unsustainable" but "environmentally destructive."

A recent "food analysis" in The Guardian1 took aim specifically at organic pasture-fed beef and lamb, lambasting such farming practices for their extravagant land use while underperforming in terms of yield:
"Arable crops, some of which are fed to farm animals, occupy 12% of the planet's land surface. But far more land (about 26%) is used for grazing: in other words, for pasture-fed meat and milk. Yet across this vast area, farm animals that are entirely pasture-fed produce just 1% of the world's protein."
Animal foods in general, and organically produced ones in particular, The Great Resetters claim, must be replaced with produce genetically engineered for high yield and pest resistance, and protein alternatives made from insects, plants and synthetic biology. Overall, life on earth cannot be sustained, they say, unless we transition to what amounts to an ultraprocessed and highly unnatural diet.

The statistical illusion of better pregnancy outcomes for vaccinated women

How can a lower still birth rate in 'vaccinated' pregnant women mean that they are at higher risk of a still birth? It is all about what stage of their pregnancy they get vaccinated - there is 'survivor bias' in those vaccinated late in pregnancy.

The following analogy is based on one used by colleague Prof Retsef Levi. Suppose we want to find out whether runners in a 40 km (that's 26-mile) marathon are more likely to finish the race if they are given a special vitamin drink during the race. To do this we set up a drinking station at 20 km where runners can pick up the drink if they wish. Suppose 200 runners start the race and we observe the following:

The first row represents the runners who do not take the drink and the second row represents the runners who do. So, there are 100 in each group; but, whereas 70 of those who take the drink complete the race (70%), only 48 of those who do not take the drink complete it (48%).

It seems clear that taking the drink increases the chances of completing the race. But this may not be the case.

Vitamin D levels affect overall survival for melanoma (skin cancer) patients, a new study presented at the 31st European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress has shown.

Dermatology researchers discovered that those who were deficient in vitamin D (lower than 10ng/mL) following their melanoma diagnosis were twice as likely (hazard ratio 2.3) to have lower overall survival than those with vitamin D levels equal/greater than 10ng/mL.

The retrospective study analyzed a cohort of 264 patients with invasive melanoma from the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, to investigate whether vitamin D plays a protective role in melanoma survival.

Pfizer to Make Record $54 Billion From COVID Shots and Treatment

Pfizer
Pfizer predicted $32 billion in profits from its COVID-19 shots and another $22 billion from Paxlovid — a pill used to treat COVID-19 but can cause the virus to rebound — for a total of $54 billion.

While the world was plunged into a time of economic instability and panic during the COVID-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer made out like bandits and continue to reap the astonishing profits of their ineffective COVID-19 treatments.

Ironically, part of what makes the treatments so profitable is the fact that they don't do what they're supposed to, which is to prevent and effectively treat COVID-19.

Comment: The data which continues to be released on the lack of efficacy of these vaccines, along with the significant side-effect profile and fatality rate, begins to paint very disturbing picture:

Landmark first peer-reviewed study on Pfizer and Moderna covid vaccines confirms 'excess risk' of adverse side effects

moderna pfizer vaccines
A landmark peer-reviewed study appears to be the first of its kind to provide hard data on the "excess risk" of adverse side effects of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines in an independent "randomized clinical trial."

The results of the accepted scientific study confirm that the concerns that many patients had about the mRNA vaccines were well-founded.

"In the Moderna trial, the excess risk of serious AESIs (15.1 per 10,000 participants) was higher than the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group (6.4 per 10,000 participants)," the study found.

Does the virus exist? A critical need for resolution

Does the virus exist

The airwaves of alt media are once again bristling with strings of activity over whether or not COVID-19 is a manipulated hoax that doesn't even involve an infectious microbial agent in the form of SARS-CoV-2.

This one's not going away either - at least until there's some reconciliation - such is the passion each side has for its arguments. What makes this latest polarisation unique is that it is the first that could do real harm to the truth and health freedom movement. A movement that's so far been more or less united in calling out manipulated science and defects in global policy on COVID-19, whether that's unjustified lockdowns or masks, misleading PCR or mortality data, or creeping totalitarianism.
