If you like heart problems, you'll love the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines

So says a report on almost 600 patients presented last week at the American Heart Association's annual conference

Bad news about the dangers that mRNA vaccines may pose to the heart and blood vessels keeps coming.

A new study of 566 patients who received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines shows that signs of cardiovascular damage soared following the shots. The risk of heart attacks or other severe coronary problems more than doubled months after the vaccines were administered, based on changes in markers of inflammation and other cell damage.

Patients had a 1 in 4 risk for severe problems after the vaccines, compared to 1 in 9 before.

Dr. Steven Gundry [EDIT, see note at bottom], a Nebraska physician and retired cardiac surgeon, presented the findings at the Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association’s annual conference in Boston last week. An abstract is available in Circulation, the AHA’s scientific journal.

Dr. Gundry regularly tests patients for early signs of heart problems, such as inflammation and cellular death. The patients are then given a score designed to predict their risk of developing an acute coronary syndrome in the next five years.

What’s an acute coronary syndrome? Glad you asked. Per the Mayo Clinic:

Acute coronary syndrome is a term used to describe a range of conditions associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart. One such condition is a heart attack (myocardial infarction) — when cell death results in damaged or destroyed heart tissue.

Gundry found that his patients saw an increase in risk from 11 percent to 25 percent, and the risks persisted for at least 2.5 months after the second dose. His takeaway:

“We conclude that the mRNA [vaccines] dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”

Which might explain why cardiologists around the world are seeing cases like this:

Just another post-vaccine case of myocarditis, this one requiring a 38-year-old woman to be put on a heart-lung bypass machine to save her her life.

Mild n’ rare, amirite, Dr. Walensky?

Oh well. Can’t make an omelette and all that.
