Editor's Footnotes from a nutritional perspective:


Include natural vitamin A to protect the body's mucosa (natural vitamin A does not produce the toxicity that synthetic vitamin A does in large amounts).

Sunshine vitamin D (a hormone) is far more effective than vitamin D supplements because it goes through vital vitamin D pathways.


If the blood's viscosity is not normal, instead of taking aspirin, a safer, more natural approach would be to consume 1 TBSP of organic flax seed oil daily and avoid damaged oils and refined sugar.

Safety Reporting of

COVID-19 Vaccine Induced Myocarditis

Just Seeing the Tip of the Iceberg

Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH

In 2021 the US CDC and FDA warned America and the world that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines could result in heart inflammation or myocarditis.[i]   This is a medical problem that has occurred in the past not related to vaccines but at a low rate ~4 per million population per year as reported by Arola, et al, from Finland.  In general, ~90% of cases occur in men and ~10% in women.[ii] 

The principles of management include stopping all forms of exercise since that can be a driver of the development of heart failure and a trigger for sudden death.  In cases where there is a progression to heart failure, cardiac biopsy is commonly performed to establish or rule out a diagnosis of giant cell myocarditis which has a markedly worse prognosis than the other forms (parvovirus, etc).  COVID-19 vaccination has been thrust on the world with such vehemence that there has been a hesitancy among physicians and hospitals to spontaneously report cases to the regulatory agencies. 

The vast majority of physicians took COVID-19 vaccines themselves and may be having trouble coming to personal grips with the threat of heart damage and other risks of vaccination.  In 2021 as spontaneous reports came into agencies that predominately young men were developing myocarditis with COVID-19 vaccination, a pattern emerged:  1) highest risk group was males age 18-24 with a skewed distribution and a long tail that extended to mean in their seventies, 2) ~90% of required hospitalization, 3) risk was explosive after the second injection, 4) death directly due to myocarditis was confirmed by autopsy.   

In the biological licensing agreement letters to Pfizer and Moderna, the US FDA requested prospective cohort studies of myocarditis which call for measurement of blood tests, ECG, and cardiac imaging before injections and at timepoints afterwards to detect the real rate of heart damage and to ascertain how much of the problem could be asymptomatic and potentially present a future risk of sudden death in an unsuspecting patient. 

Both companies were not forthcoming, so the answer came from  Mansanguan et al, from the  Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand.[iii]  Adolescents age 13-18 were studied in a prospective cohort manner just after the second injection of the Pfizer vaccine and 7/301 (23,256/million) developed myocarditis using a clinical definition based on blood tests, ECG, and cardiac imaging.   

Data from multiple sources suggest the condition can be subclinical in about half, meaning neither the patient nor the parents bring it to clinical attention.  Patone et al have recently reported on 100 fatal cases of vaccine-induced myocarditis in the UK, and such papers are expected to continue with larger numbers as the medical community begins to fully recognize cause and effect.[iv]
