A study unrecognized by the medical community claims myocarditis, a disease that killed a large number of patients in the last two years, is tied to anti-COVID-19 vaccination.

Medicine, a weapon at the hands of Western globalists

NEWS: “Medical doctors Peter McCullough, Roger Hodkinson, Aseem Malhotra and William Makis have co-authored a study titled “Autopsy Proven Fatal COVID-19 Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis” jointly with Nicolas Hulscher of University of Michigan.

“We now have undeniable evidence, proven by autopsies: in 100% of the cases, the myocarditis induced by vaccination was the cause of death”, Dr. McCullough said. Their research confirmed that, in 100% of the cases the autopsies revealed that vaccine-induced myocarditis was a possible cause of death.

The aforementioned authors conducted a comprehensive review of every autopsy report published prior to July 3, 2023, detailing cases of myocarditis possibly linked to anti-COVID-19 vaccination. Three of the experts specializing in cardiac pathology assessed the causality of each case”.

NARRATIVE: Anti-COVID-19 vaccines cause myocarditis, which leads to the death of people who take the jab.

BACKGROUND: Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of false narratives flooded the Romanian public sphere, regarding the nature and origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the measures taken by the authorities to combat the spread of the virus or the effectiveness and effects of vaccination. The advocates of these false narratives included supporters of conspiracy theories, radical Orthodox Christians, sovereigntists, Eurosceptics and anti-Westerners. The false narratives regarding the pandemic and vaccination have a number of sources. One of them is Russia, which seeks to destabilize Western societies. Another source is China, whose main goal is to draw attention away from its original response to the pandemic and the fact that the SARS-CoV-2 virus first surfaced on its territory. At the same time, however, Western publications and “influencers”, usually associated with the far right or conspiracy theorists, are equal sources of disinformation. These themes are picked up and disseminated by other “influencers”, publications across the world or social networks. There are several categories of people who are susceptible to this category of narratives and disinformation: coronasceptics, anti-vaxxers, people who distrust the authorities, etc. A number of countries saw the rise of genuine anti-vaxx movements, strongly influenced by a part of these narratives, which they take over, internalize and amplify.

In Romania, the spearhead of the anti-vaxx movement was the website activenews.ro, which over the years sought to validate anti-vaccination theories by quoting pseudo-experts, anonymous websites or falsely citing a variety of studies. Veridica has already debunked several fake news and disinformation narratives regarding the anti-COVID-19 vaccine, which allegedly induces sterility across three generations, is ineffective and has adverse effects or causes testicular cancer.

Peter A. McCullough, the coordinator of the aforementioned study, is an American cardiologist, famous for advocating several fake news and disinformation narratives linked to the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2021, McCullough was deposed by the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee, defending against allegations of spreading false information. Additionally, the American Board of Internal Medicine stripped McCullough of his certification for reasons pertaining to professional misconduct. Over the years, McCullough claimed the pandemic was pre-designed, that the spike protein in mRNA vaccines kills cells in the human body. In April 2021, namely two years prior to the publication of the study in question, McCullough said in an interview that anti-COVID-19 vaccines are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths.

PURPOSE: To promote anti-vaxx culture, validate conspiracy theories and erode public confidence in the authorities.

A conclusion drawn ahead of the study proper does not count as science.

WHY THE NARRATIVE IS FALSE: Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle known as myocardium, which affects the functioning of the heart, reducing its capacity to pump blood and causing arrhythmia. Some cases are severe enough to cause death. Myocarditis can be a major cause of sudden cardiac death in infants, adolescents and young adults. In fact, myocarditis is particularly reported in young, healthy and athletic people with no history of medical disease.

More often than not, myocarditis is caused by a viral infection. However, it may also occur as a result of an adverse reaction to a drug. Most patients do not display any symptoms. In addition, myocarditis is hard to diagnose since it isn’t associated with any specific symptoms, and treatment more often than not is cause-related. Sometimes, bedrest during the acute and symptomatic periods will suffice to treat the illness. Most of the times, patients recover fully. In 5% of the cases, however, myocarditis can lead to complications with serious consequences. The incidence of this illness is unknown, since a large part of the cases are asymptomatic, on the one hand, while on the other hand doctors cannot rely on universally valid diagnosis testing.

The study mentioned in the article is not peer-reviewed, meaning it has not been verified and validated by medical sources other than the research team. Besides, it’s important to note that two of the five healthcare professionals who co-author the review are employed by The Wellness Company, a corporation known for trading supplements it claims protect the human body against “vaccine-induced lesions”.

The first issue of the “study” is the selection of medical articles selected for review. The authors have ruled out most of the studies identified in their research, 473 out of 487, without clearly stating the reasons behind their decision, considering that the inclusion or exclusion of such a large number of studies could greatly influence the end results, and therefore should be avoided without a scientific justification. According to the Methods section, the authors selected “all autopsy studies that include COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis as a possible cause of death”. This definition, along with a vague exclusion criterion, raise the question whether one or several of the criteria used for selecting the studies are biased. For instance, it is unclear whether the authors excluded certain otherwise viable studies simply because selecting them would have given rise to results that are incompatible with their opinions regarding the safety of anti-COVID-19 vaccines. The fact that three of the authors are Roger Hodkinson, William Makis and Peter McCullough, well-known for spreading disinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines in the past, challenges the unbiased nature of their analysis.

The fact that a person dies after taking the anti-COVID-19 jab is not strong enough evidence to draw conclusions regarding the safety of vaccination. The explanation is that, whilst a temporal association between vaccination and death is needed to prove a connection, it is not sufficient in itself. Any significant conclusion should at least compare the autopsy reports performed on vaccinated people to a control group comprising people who didn’t take the anti-COVID shot, something which the study fails to do. Instead, its conclusions focus on the allegedly negative effects of the spike protein induced by vaccination.

To support their conclusions, the authors cite and refer to studies that were rejected by the scientific community, such as the one published by Spiro Pantazatos and Herve Seligmann.

Unlike what the research suggests, reports of post-vaccination deaths are very rare, according to the website of the World Health Organization. Moreover, the claim that anti-COVID-19 jabs cause death or increase the risk of death is at odds with the results of hundreds of studies certified by scientific bodies all over the world, which show that people who take the anti-COVID vaccine die to a significantly lesser extent compared to people who don’t take the vaccine. On the contrary, vaccines reduce death risk by shielding people against severe forms of the disease. Even when vaccines are associated with serious side effects, their incidence is very low and doesn’t outweigh the benefits of vaccination.
