is it vaccines or is it covid causing athletes to collapse on the field?
a little crowd sourced homework project.
it has become manifestly clear that we’re seeing an extreme outcome in athletes and heart conditions. something is very much amiss.
there is quite a lot of evidence that this seems to be a vaccine effect. but, predictably, the chorus from team mask up, lock down, and vax, vax, vax, vax, vax is taking the other side of this argument and claiming it’s covid.
predictably, there is not a shred of supporting data, just supposition and appeals to ever more tatterdemalion authority.
there are a number of reasons that i find this argument uncompelling, but there is an aspect of it that i find quite revelatory as well:
they have stopped denying that it’s happening.
it has become sufficiently common and sufficiently obvious that they can no longer ignore it and must address it instead and offer up an explanation.
as i will lay out below, this poses a serious problem for them because now we have a testable hypothesis.
if we agree that athletes are, indeed having an extremely disproportionate number of heart issues of late, then the “why” can be assessed by timing.
if it’s covid causing this issue, it should have been present last year as well.
if it’s the vaccines, this issue should have emerged in 2021 but not in 2020.
we have a strong base prior for this effect from these vaccines. they have been shown to accumulate in heart tissue and to elicit a FAR stronger antibody response than just having had covid. this is due to the larger dose of S-1 protein. (it also appears to confer no clinical benefit whatsoever as natural recovery is far more potent and more sterilizing than vaxxed)
so, it’s quite reasonable to presume more heart risk. there has been almost none in the young from covid. 2020 a 2019. but look what happened in 2021 after vaccination. (SOURCE)
this is very much the opposite of what one would expect were this caused by covid but exactly what one would expect if it were caused by vaccine.
and a lot of people are starting to notice.
numerous EU countries have discontinued used of these mRNA vaccines in the young over adverse events risk (particularly heart risk) swamping benefit.
and the data on this keeps getting worse. (though any such reporting in the US is conspicuously absent)
unfortunately, a lot of people, especially in the US, are determined to suppress such findings. “hey, those vaccines we approved without sound trials, won’t give you the data on, mandated and hectored over, and pushed on your kids while absolving the pharma companies from any liability whatsoever, yeah, sorry, it was really unsafe.” is not a great look.
this sort of suppression is literally the opposite of public health. how can people make sound choices in the absence of sound data?
so here’s a little crowd sourced homework assignment:
i recall basically no athletes collapsing from heart issues in 2020. this looks to me to have started in the spring of 2021 when vaccinations ramped up.
but it’s possible i’m wrong or suffering from confirmation bias in perception. it looks like a validated rise, but perhaps it’s not.
so let’s validate or refute it. see what you can find. let’s compile something like a list, see how good a data set can be assembled, and see what the data looks like.
this is the sort of capability the modern info-sphere provides us with.
if “authorities” will not collect good data, then let’s collect our own.
