Adults have sharply higher risks of being diagnosed with heart, skin and psychiatric conditions for at least 90 days after they receive Covid jabs, a peer-reviewed study of almost 300,000 people in California, published in the leading journal Nature, has shown. Alex Berenson has the details.
The researchers examined new diagnoses given to the same people before and after they were vaccinated to see whether the shots changed the risk of new health problems.
They found that people were about 21% more likely to receive a new diagnosis in the three months after a shot, compared to the three months before. With almost 240 million American adults jabbed, the rise translates into millions of extra new medical problems found in the months after vaccination, and tens of millions worldwide.
Serious conditions such as hypertension were about 25% more likely to be diagnosed in the three months following a shot than the three months before, the researchers found.
Depression, eczema, diabetes, and cellulitis were 10-20% more likely.
Myocarditis diagnoses had the highest additional risk. They were about 2.6 times as likely overall, with an even higher risk in men. Myocarditis is a known side effect of the mRNAs, so the fact it had a particularly high rate of extra diagnoses provides strong evidence that the signal the researchers found was real.
Overall, the researchers reported that the 284,000 Covid-vaccinated adults they examined received almost 6,000 additional diagnoses of health conditions in the 90 days after being jabbed compared to the 90 days before.
With about 237 million American adults vaccinated, that estimate would translate into about five million extra diagnoses for problems like diabetes in the three months following the shots. Worldwide, the number could be up to 25 million.
