Study finds 13,000% increase in myocarditis risk in children after mRNA COVID jab
(NaturalHealth365) Dr. Fauci has virtually disappeared from the headlines, but other stories about COVID-19 and the mRNA jabs continue to make their way into the news.
A recent study, for instance, affiliated with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), raises even more concern over the causal link between COVID shots and a heart inflammation condition called myocarditis among children, especially boys.
Journal of the American Medical Association: Over 13,000% increased risk of heart inflammation in boys aged 12 to 15 years old after COVID shot
The study, called “Myocarditis Cases Reported After mRNA-Based COVID-19 Vaccination in the US From December 2020 to August 2021,” was published in January of this year in the prestigious journal JAMA. The authors used passive surveillance data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to answer the following question: “What is the risk of myocarditis after mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccination in the US?”
Pulling from over 1,600 reported cases of myocarditis following COVID jabs and comparing the rates of these myocarditis cases to baseline rates, the researchers determined the following:
- Among boys aged 16 to 17 who received Pfizer mRNA COVID injections, the risk of myocarditis post-jab increased by at least 7,800%
- That figure rose to more than 13,000% for boys aged 12 to 15
- Even young men between the ages of 18 and 24 had a 2,800% increased risk of myocarditis after receiving the Pfizer jab
The risk of myocarditis in children increased significantly following Moderna mRNA shots, too.
While discussing the limitations of their study, the authors note that “VAERS data are subject to reporting biases in that both underreporting and overreporting are possible.” However, the authors note that given “the high verification rate of reports of myocarditis to VAERS after mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccination, underreporting is more likely. Therefore, “the actual rates of myocarditis per million doses of vaccine are likely higher than estimated” (emphasis ours).
“Based on passive surveillance reporting in the US,” the authors conclude, “the risk of myocarditis after receiving mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines was increased across multiple age and sex strata and was highest after the second vaccination dose in adolescent males and young men. This risk should be considered in the context of the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.”
As for people who seem so willing to brush off myocarditis as “mild” issues in children, it should be noted that the FDA and CDC acknowledge that “long-term outcome data are not yet available for COVID-19 vaccine–associated myocarditis cases.”
In other recent COVID news: Big Pharma executive admits mRNA jab is “gene therapy,” boasts that most people would have refused it for this exact reason prior to the pandemic
A video originally posted to YouTube in October of last year is currently trending on social media – although it’s not clear if and when YouTube will censor the clip for spreading “misinformation.”
The video features a speech from the 2021 World Health Summit opening ceremony made by Stefan Oelrich, a member of Bayer’s Board of Management and head of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division. During the speech, Oelrich celebrates Bayer’s role in biotechnological innovation and points to the mRNA vaccine from Pfizer and Moderna as “an example for that cell and gene therapy” that his own company is trying to emulate.
Oelrich also has an unusual take on the so-called “acceptance” of gene therapy today because of the widespread use of COVID shots in the fight against the pandemic virus. “I always like to say,” he brags, “if we had surveyed two years ago in the public – ‘would you be willing to take gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?’ – we probably would have had a 95 percent refusal rate.”
It is not the intent of this article to claim that gene therapy could never and will never have any positive effects on human health. Perhaps benefits will come out of this ongoing medical innovation (benefits, of course, that must be carefully weighed against the risks). What readers are encouraged to consider, however, is whether children (or anyone, for that matter) should be forced to partake in gene therapy simply to go to school, travel, or go out in public with their family and friends.
Even setting aside the alarming issue of jab-related myocarditis for a moment, we must take a step back and ask ourselves as a society: is it ethically correct to mandate medical treatment, especially when the treatment lacks any long-term safety data, has inconclusive short-term data, and is intended for a disease that has an overwhelmingly high survival rate?
