Junk Science? Number 131: Is this really the death knell for mRNA vaccines?

The American Heart Association caused uproar on November 6th for daring to publish (Circulation) a paper (1) from Dr. Steven Gundry, which said that “mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation” in the heart, which “may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”  

Anti-vaxers highlighted the most damaging claim that “Patients had a 1 in 4 risk for severe problems after the mRNA vaccines compared to 1 in 9 before”.

Immediately the Big Pharma PR machinery jumped to nip this negativity in the bud: ‘Multiple experts’ stated that this was not proper research, it lacked evidence, it was only an abstract, it was not peer reviewed and it was by just one writer.

The actual paper was entitled ‘Abstract 10712: Mrna Covid vaccines dramatically increase Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS risk as measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning’.

The author made it perfectly clear it was not a major review but an abstract, how he and others used the PULS system and how it was done. Needless to say, much of the criticism has been against his personal qualifications. And considerably more was for the lack of evidence presented but then the piece was less than 350 words long. 

It was a comment on what Gundry and others were observing – namely that mRNA vaccines were prompting increased inflammation. The American Heart Association has now published an ‘Expression of Concern’ in its November 24th journal, but this is a long way short of saying the inflammation findings are wrong. 

And these inflammation concerns are exactly what expert cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra is expressing in the UK. In a video Interview with GB News (2), Malhotra talks about he and others seeing increased cardiovascular inflammation after mRNA shots; he talks about considerable anecdotal evidence; about how a whistleblower from a group researching mRNA and cardiovascular issues has said they have found exactly these increased risks, but are too afraid to publish for fear of losing Big Pharma funding, and how urgent and detailed independent research was needed. 

Of course Pfizer, Moderna and the originators of mRNA vaccines at Fauci’s NHI don’t like the concerns. Shooting the messenger and rubbishing the research are standard practice. Twitter regulators even banned all mention of the Gundrey abstract by anyone they see as ‘anti-vaxers’, and even the abstract itself (3).

But this cannot alter the genuine concerns being raised, whether people already have cardiovascular issues or not.  Inflammation is now widely acknowledged as being the driver of cardiovascular risk, and many other illnesses too, from Dementia to cancer.

Significantly, the MHRA, the UK’s drug ‘watchdog’ actually updated its information on both mRNA vaccines (without making a formal announcement) a few months ago. mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna may cause heart damage through inflammation of the heart muscle. This follows cases of myocarditis and pericarditis in both the USA and Israel – rare, but still enough of a concern to prompt an official warning.

When Malhotra calls for genuine and independent research, that is exactly what is needed for these experimental vaccines. Contrary to popular belief, again led by misinformation from Big Pharma, these Pfizer and Moderna shots have not been approved for use by the FDA – they are still experimental. As such, they should be the subject of serious and continuous scientific research, even if that means their death knell and the need to find more effective vaccines with less side effects.
