In 2020, the first year of the pandemic, deaths caused by circulatory diseases increased by about 15% in the 25-44 age group compared to the previous year, according to data from death certificates collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). ). .
In 2021, these deaths increased by more than 20% compared to 2019.
That means almost 6,500 more deaths.
It seems that the increase could have been caused by several factors.
COVID-19 sometimes causes complications in the circulatory system. It is likely that some deaths, especially early in the pandemic, were caused by COVID-19 but were misclassified on the death certificate.
Also, many people were likely diagnosed too late or not diagnosed at all because they were afraid to go to the doctor during the pandemic.
However, diseases of the circulatory system continued to claim lives in greater proportions in this age group even in 2022, when the pandemic receded. In the first half of the year, those deaths were still more than 13% above the death toll in the first half of 2019, according to preliminary data from the CDC.
In the 45-54 age group, these deaths increased in 2020–21 but appear to have since declined to pre-pandemic levels.
In the 15-24 age group, these deaths have barely changed over the last five years.
A growing number of experts and studies have linked COVID-19 vaccines to serious and even fatal conditions, including heart inflammation or myocarditis. They suggest that the spike protein produced by vaccination may cause blood clotting and inflammation.
“All cardiovascular conditions got worse because of the vaccine and anything and everything that could go wrong with the heart went wrong with the heart as a result of these mRNA vaccines. There is no doubt about it,” said Dr. Aseem Malhotra, a British cardiologist who has extensively researched the associations between COVID-19 vaccines and heart problems.
Malhotra argued that such issues should be presumed to be associated with vaccines until proven otherwise. He was initially supportive of vaccines, but changed his mind after his father’s cardiac arrest six months after his vaccinations.
The Doctor. Peter McCullough, a highly published American cardiologist, independently reached a similar conclusion.
“When people are in a study or in a post-marketing period of a new drug, when someone dies within a few days, or certainly within 30 days of any new drug or injection, it’s that drug until proven otherwise. ,” he told Epoch TV’s Jan Jekielek last month.
“If this were in a regulatory dossier, it could even be something seemingly disconnected. Believe it or not, in clinical trials, if someone is taking a drug and they have a car accident, it’s attributed to the drug, because the drug could have made them dizzy or foggy or whatever.
The rollout of vaccines also correlates with significant increases in other conditions, including eye problems, immune system problems and, in some data, cancer, according to Josh Stirling, an insurance research analyst.
Overall, vaccination correlates with increased mortality, according to Stirling.
“The more doses, on average, you have in a region within the United States, the greater the increase in mortality in that region in 2022 compared to 2021,” he recently told Jekielek in an interview with “American Thought Leaders.”
Stirling argued that if the vaccine’s adverse effects were properly identified, they could be mitigated.
“If we were just tracking these people, the vast majority of these health issues, before they become catastrophic, could be easily managed – not necessarily resolved, but certainly managed with incredible medical advances and simple things like blood thinners or lifestyle changes.” , he said.
Mortality in adults aged 18 to 64 increased substantially from 2020 onwards, even with deaths from COVID-19 excluded, according to a December 15, 2022 article that attempted to account for COVID-19 deaths misclassified on certificates. of death.
Leading causes of excess deaths included drug poisoning, circulatory disease, deaths from alcohol or alcohol-induced illness, and diseases related to diabetes and obesity.
Rather than vaccines, the paper blamed lockdown policies instituted to combat the pandemic for exacerbating existing public health problems.
“We knew we had a diabetes problem in the United States before the pandemic. We knew we had a drug problem. We knew we had an alcohol problem. We knew about all these problems. And then you’re doing these crazy things like closing schools,” Casey Mulligan, an economics professor at the University of Chicago and one of the paper’s authors, previously told The Epoch Times.
“It was a lot of negligence.”
