Risk of heart inflammation several times higher in Covid mRNA vaccinated than unvaccinated people -study

The risk of heart inflammation requiring hospital treatment is significantly higher in vaccinated people than in unvaccinated people, according to a major new scientific study from Scandinavia.

Covid mRNA, Risk of heart inflammation several times higher in Covid mRNA vaccinated than unvaccinated people -study

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Data from the national health authorities of Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway were used. The scientific study examined 23.1 million people over 12 years of age. The study period began on Dec. 27, 2020, and ended on Oct. 5, 2021.

According to the analyses, rates of myocarditis and pericarditis in people vaccinated against covid with an mRNA vaccine exceeded those in unvaccinated people by several times.

According to the study, boys or men between 16 and 24 years after the second dose of vaccine are particularly at risk. Dr. Rickard Ljung, a professor and physician at the Swedish Medicines Agency, is one of the study’s authors and explained to The Epoch Times:

“These additional cases in men aged 16 to 24 years correspond to a 5-fold increased risk after Comirnaty and a 15-fold increased risk after Spikevax compared with unvaccinated.”

However, myocarditis and pericarditis rates were elevated in all vaccinees in every age group in the first 28 days after the shot – even after the first dose of an mRNA vaccine.

The study summarizes:

“This cohort study of 23.1 million residents in 4 Nordic countries showed higher rates of myocarditis and pericarditis within 28 days of vaccination with SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines than unvaccinated. Risks for myocarditis and pericarditis were highest within the first seven days after vaccination was, increased with all combinations of mRNA vaccines, and were more pronounced after the second dose. A second dose of mRNA-1273 had the highest risk of myocarditis and pericarditis, with young men aged 16 to 24 years.”

Nevertheless, in a press release on the study, the researchers stated that heart inflammation was “very rare” and that “the benefits of these vaccines in reducing the risk of severe COVID-19 progression and death outweigh the risks of adverse events.”

However, quite a few experts see it differently – one of them being Dr. Peter McCullough, senior medical advisor to the Truth for Health Foundation and a renowned cardiologist who has treated countless patients with heart inflammation after vaccination.

“In cardiology, we spend our entire professional lives trying to save every part of the heart muscle. We put in stents; we do cardiac catheterizations, stress tests, and CT angiograms. The whole game of cardiology is to preserve the heart muscle,” McCullough explained to the newspaper.
