Data doesn't lie: mRNA-vaccines and correlation to all-cause mortality

marlies dekkers
During my recent travel to Holland, Marlies Dekkers of the De Nieuwe Wereld Podcast interviewed Dr. Theo Schetters and myself. That video, made for a Dutch audience, is currently up (for now) on youtube, but it unlikely to remain on that platform. Therefore, I have also downloaded and posted it here because I believe that the subject matter which Theo and I covered in this interview is important. The data and analysis which Theo discloses is quite likely to be disregarded by corporate media, and also likely to be censored by the big tech giants Meta/Facebook, Google/Alphabet, and Twitter. But that does not mean that it does not deserve to be disclosed and discussed. Theo is a very serious, well trained, responsible virologist, immunologist and vaccine expert. He highly respected in the Netherlands, and has had the courage required to seek AND report truth during these difficult times.

I have taken excepts from the podcast transcript (leaving comments intact) from the last portion of the interview below.

Background: Dr. Theo Schetters obtained a PhD in Medicine from Nijmegen University in the Netherlands, and received a visiting scientist award from the Royal Society (London) to work on malaria immunology at the National Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill, London (UK). From 1988 to 2014 he worked at Intervet International (Boxmeer, The Netherlands) where he developed a vaccine against coccidiosis in chickens (Nobilis® Cox ATM) and a vaccine against Babesia infections in dogs (Nobivac® Piro). He is inventor of an improved vaccine formulation against diseases associated with Rhipicephalus ticks. Presently, he is director of ProtActivity, a company that focuses on vaccine development against ticks and tick-borne protozoal infections. In 2004 he received the Medal of Honour of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Montpellier 1 in France and was bestowed Professeur Invité as recognition for his contribution to longstanding collaborative research with the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology of the University (head Prof. Andre Gorenflot). He is an editorial board member of "Veterinary Parasitology, Trials in Vaccinology" (Elseviers Science Publishers) and "Parasitology" (Cambridge University Press).

Dr. Schetters is an exceptional, gifted, and highly respected vaccinologist - let us hope his warnings will not be ignored by his government and world health leaders.

Polio detected in wastewater of New York City suburb, shares genetic links to virus in Israel and the UK

Health officials say the polio virus was present in a New York City suburb's wastewater a month before a case was detected in July,

The case - the first in the US since 2013 - was found in an unnamed patient in Rockland County.

Officials say no new cases have been identified, and it is not yet clear whether it is actively spreading.

Polio was largely eradicated from the US by a vaccination campaign that began in 1955.

According to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the presence of polio in the community's wastewater suggests there may be others who are shedding the virus in their stool.

Comment: It's notable that back in 2019 a new oral polio vaccine, backed by the Gates Foundation, was approved, despite bypassing key clinical trials, and this happened amidst reports that outbreaks caused by these 'vaccines' had overtaken wild polio outbreaks.

Planet saving fake-meat burger fails

So everyone "believes in climate change", but they apparently don't want to buy the fake-meat that is going to save us from storms, floods and droughts. It's another mystery of post-modern life that's solved by assuming that people say "Yes" to meaningless poll questions but "No thanks" to propaganda.

No one really believes their burger will stop cyclones in ninety years time.
McDonald's Ends Testing McPlant Burger, Adding Pressure on Beyond Meat Stock

By Naveen Athrappully, Epoch Times

McDonald's announced that it has concluded the U.S. trial of its McPlant burger, which is made with the plant-based protein manufactured by Beyond Meat (BYND).

In November 2021, McDonald's began testing the meat-free burger in eight restaurants across America. In February this year, the company introduced the McPlant burger at around 600 locations. According to third-party reports, the experiment ended as a failure. In a recent note, according to CNBC, JP Morgan analyst Ken Goldman cited employees from McDonald's revealing that the burger did not sell well enough.
This is a complicated way of saying "nobody wants to buy our product":
During the first-quarter earnings call in May, Beyond Meat founder and CEO Ethan Brown explained that the company is finding it difficult to pass on rising costs to customers. "You see all these new entrants coming in, and many of them are using price as a way to try to capture early market share," Brown said, according to the earnings call transcript published at The Motley Fool.

"And so while the animal protein industry has been able to substantially increase pricing to essentially offset significant reductions in volume, in our sector, we have not had the opportunity to do that."
Meat costs were rising too, but customers were willing to pay.

Objective:Health - In The News: Alzheimer's Research Faked, Dutch Farmers Protest Green Agenda, Your Pee is Pollution

O:H header
Welcome to another episode of In The News, where we look through the latest health headlines and bring you the O:H take.

On this episode we talk about a once considered groundbreaking Alzheimer's study that's been found to be fraudulent and has been misdirecting further research for the past 16 years.

We also talk about the Netherlands where farmers are protesting the government's ridiculous attempts to being in harmful Green-Agenda policies that will cost farmer's their livelihoods and threaten food security for the country and Europe.

We also look at more Green propaganda, as Scientific American tries to tell us that too much protein in the diet makes our urine a "problem pollutant." We take this as an opportunity to debunk the "too much protein" myth and show how this is yet another piece of propaganda trying to convince you to give up eating meat.

Join us for all of this and more on this episode of Objective:Health!

A basketball player for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater passed away this week after suffering a "cardiac event" while at a summer basketball practice.

"Warhawk Nation mourns the loss of Derek Gray, a student-athlete on the Warhawk men's basketball team, who passed away unexpectedly on July 24th, 2022, playing the game he loved," the school's athletic department said in a statement.

"It was a cardiac event," UW-Whitewater Men's Basketball Coach Pat Miller told local media. "He had a blockage."

Comment: Another young athlete sadly passes away. What was once an extremely rare occurrence now seems to be happening all the more frequently. See also:

The Netherlands: Higher vaccine uptake, higher mortality

vaccine uptake mortality
During the past few months, indications of a positive correlation between all-cause mortality and Covid vaccines has been growing. To demonstrate the existence of this correlation it is however crucial to be able to compare the rate of mortality and the vaccine uptake within a relatively homogenic population.

This is what Dutch researcher André Redetti has now done. He compares mortality rate and vaccine uptake between municipalities in the Netherlands and finds no mortality-reducing effect from vaccination.

Instead he finds a statistically significant positive correlation between vaccine uptake and mortality.

The period in question is week 35-52, 2021. As the graph shows there is a strong correlation, i.e., a higher vaccine uptake in a municipality is correlated with a higher death rate. The full analysis is not yet peer reviewed, but it is available on Researchgate.

Medical journal finds unvaccinated COVID patients are contagious for LESS time than those vaxed or boosted

girl sneeze
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that people vaccinated against COVID-19 remained contagious with the virus for a longer period of time than their unvaccinated counterparts.

The disparity in contagiousness was particularly pronounced between the unvaccinated and individuals who did not receive a booster shot.

The findings were published in a letter to the editor signed by dozens of doctors from a variety of hospitals in Boston, Massachusetts in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine in June. From July 2021 through January 2022, researchers studied 66 participants who contracted COVID-19, including 32 people with the Delta variant and 34 with the Omicron variant.

Comment: Natural immunity vindicated yet again.

Covid vaccines give zero protection against death, ONS data suggest

covid-19 vaccine
The latest ONS data on deaths by vaccination status show that of the 5,678 Covid deaths in April and May, 93% or 5,276 were of vaccinated people. Given that the Government's Coronavirus Dashboard reports that 93% of the over-12 population had a first dose of the vaccine, 87% had a second dose and 70% had a third dose, these real-world data suggest that the vaccinated did no better than the unvaccinated in being protected against death.

Breaking this down by age does not improve the outlook. In the 50-59 age cohort, in April 86% and in May 87% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 87% of the cohort vaccinated with at least one dose. In the 60-69 cohort, in April 88% and in May 91% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 91% of the cohort. In the 70-79 cohort, in April 94% and in May 90% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 92% of the cohort. In the 80-plus cohort, in April and May 94% of the deaths were of vaccinated people, compared to 94% of the cohort. Note that ONS's definition of a Covid death includes deaths where Covid is mentioned anywhere on the death certificate, not necessarily as the underlying cause.

Many readers will be familiar with the ongoing debate about vaccination statistics and the size of the unvaccinated population. We know how many people have been vaccinated with the first, second, third and fourth doses of vaccine but we don't know what the population of the U.K. is so we can't know exactly what percentage of the population the vaccinated represent. However, we can have a pretty good guess. Figure 1 is taken from the Covid dashboard and shows that just over 90% of the population had a first dose, just under 90% had a second dose and just under 70% had a third dose.

A health worker administers a dose of a Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during a vaccination clinic in Norristown, Pa. on Dec. 7, 2021.
More than two years after Operation Warp Speed began, Children's Health Defense (CHD) commissioned John Zogby Strategies to conduct two surveys (see here and here) about attitudes and the overall health of American adults.

Key highlights from the survey of 1,038 adults

The survey found that 67% of respondents received one or more COVID-19 vaccines, while 33% are unvaccinated. Furthermore, among those vaccinated, 6% received one dose, 28% received two doses, 21% received three doses, and 12% took four or more.

Of those receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, 15% say they've been diagnosed by a medical practitioner with a new condition within a matter of weeks to several months after taking the vaccine.

The Monkeypox Puzzle

Monkey Pox Puzzle
It was inevitable that the World Health Organisation (WHO) would up the pandemic ante regarding monkeypox. All the signs were there such as the possibility of more dangerous variants, airborne spread and asymptomatic spread; mandatory isolation for cases, and those old chestnuts: test and trace and mass vaccination. It is reported that any reluctance on behalf of the WHO members to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern over monkeypox was overruled by Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

So, what are the facts to date regarding monkeypox? The latest estimate from the WHO is that there are now around 15,000 cases of monkeypox across the globe, a mere 0.0001% of the world population (one in a million) and a grand total of five deaths. If these deaths were evenly spread across the globe, then the case fatality rate would be 0.03% (three in 10,000). Since these are estimates and with such a disparity between cases and deaths this is also a reasonable estimate of the infection fatality rate which is the risk an individual infected person has of dying of the infection. To reiterate, the present figures indicate that you have a one in a million chance of being infected with monkeypox and if you are infected you have a three in 10,000 chance of dying.
