The year of collapsing athletes: 890 athletes collapse or die and counting…

There are people tracking all the reports of athletes suddenly collapsing and dying in their prime, or heartbreakingly, even in their teens. This isn’t a definitive study, but where are the answers and why don’t we know them? There are a hundred million reasons to supply data that shows vaccines are “safe and effective”. If our health really did matter, and the incidence of sudden deaths in athletes was the same as every other year, where are those studies? Why aren’t we discussing this on the news?

Some of the collapses and deaths listed here may have nothing to do with vaccines, the anonymous researchers admit and declare that. They want the full data, we all want the data. But it’s nowhere to be found.  The medico’s and football clubs, and the Department of Health have gone from bragging about getting their boosters on Twitter to saying nothing. They are not so keen anymore to report or declare vaccination status.

The rise in mid 2021 start at the same time a massive experimental medical program starts. It might be coincidence, but if it’s normal, they would be saying so, with open statistics and data, not shutting down the conversation, and sacking football managers.

890 Athlete Cardiac Arrests, Serious Issues, 579 Dead, After COVID Shot

The mainstream media still are not reporting most, but sports news cannot ignore the fact that soccer players and other stars collapse in the middle of a game due to a sudden cardiac arrest. Many of those die – more than 50%.

Athlete Collapses and Deaths 2021-22

There has been a rise in reports of athlete sudden collapses and deaths since July last year.  | Goodsciencing.com

What’s a normal year?

A  review of sudden cardiac deaths in sport found about 29 a year mentioned in medical literature.  A different study of the US found about 70 annual deaths across 38 different sports. There are more deaths listed in the peak months in that graph above than usually occurred in an entire year.

The International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, Switzerland, studied documents from international data banks from 1966 to 2004. Those documents indicate 1,101 sudden deaths in athletes under 35 years of age, an average of 29 athletes per year, the sports with the highest incidence being soccer and basketball. (NIH Document)

A study by Maron on sudden death in US athletes, from 1980 to 2006 in thirty-eight sports identified 1,866 deaths of athletes with cardiac disease, with a prevalence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

More people are writing to tell us that in many cases, we didn’t mention a person’s vaccination status. There is a good reason for that. None of the clubs want to reveal this information. None of their sponsors want to reveal it. The players have been told not to reveal it. Most of their relatives will not mention it. None of the media are asking this question. So what should we do? Stop this now? No, we will collect as much information as we can, while it is still available, because eventually, more information will come out, and we will be here to put it together. Will it mean anything? We don’t know. What we do know is that there is a concerted world-wide effort to make this information go away, so that fact alone tells us it must be collected, investigated and saved so other researchers can look at it to see if there are any useful patterns.

Clubs Hide Vaccination Information Now

Here is a demonstration of how sports clubs do not want the injuries of deaths of their players to be associated with the COVID vaccines. It tells the story of why they will not report which of their players has been vaccinated and when. Sunderland FC manager Lee Johnson suggested that the COVID vaccines may have caused the heart issues for his goalkeeper, Lee Burge. The club then sacked the manager.

There’s a German site with a similar list.

It’s the greatest dereliction of duty …

    We keep getting told “nothing to see here”, it’s all completely normal.

    When are people going to see the reality, or are most too dumbed-down for that?

    Medical doctors don’t dare speak out for fear of deregistration and other authorities fear being “cancelled”.

      What IMHO makes these much worse in terms of cover up, is the fact that many of these elite athletes are constantaly being monitored by medical staff of various specialities.
      Many athletes have medical “checks” as part of their training regime, cardio checks, lung function, oxygen saturations etc as team managers look for ways to squeeze one tiny bit more advantage out of the players, nothing untoward is detected and then , out of the blue, collapse. Absolutely “SOMETHING TO SEE HERE’

    And there needs to be a proper investigation of whether the vaccines are toxic to cardiac tissue. Dr John Campbell strongly advocates aspiration before injection to assure the vaccine goes into muscle tissue, not the blood circulation.

      My GP was seeing alot of neurological issues post fizzer shot especially, lack of aspiration being his theory too – he had to argue with his own nurses to aspirate before giving the shots in his clinic. Their handbook says you dont need to do it apparently.

      I have heard a lot about that aspiration method. But is it actually impractical to aspire before the COVID shots? Their volume is incredibly low- about 0.3 mL,I thought?

    NZ’s Ministry of (un)Health reported the third death ‘likely caused by’ the BioNTech experimental jabberwocky: a teenager from myocarditis. The figure is more like three hundred.

    After two years I’m back in my old job, driver/tour guide, thanks to the ‘relaxing’ of certain ‘laws’. The business owner, and 3 of her drivers, were all double-shot and all ‘caught the bug’ – nothing major but none of them want shot #3 – while 2 of us are not and haven’t… funny how it rolls.

    Meanwhile the Red Princess, Jacinda, flies to the USA tomorrow and to points further unknown, while her govt bureaucracy crumbles in disarray due to its obese and self-serving gluttony… got to destroy sumpthink™ before you can rebuild it.

    Empirical data suggests these findings are correct.
    My sports medicine colleagues are reporting cases of myocarditis in young male athletes, and have never seen this before.
    It is almost impossible for professional team sports athletes to avoid being jabbed, as most teams mandate “vaccination”.
    Underlying and subclinical myocarditis or pericarditis are known causes of sudden cardiac death.

          Gee Aye. Not sure who you think you are STILL covering for, since the Commonwealth now accepts full-responsibility for all deaths, and other harm, caused by the gene-jabs.

          Seriously, with Oz govt departments now routinely announcing stuff like…..”In cases involving death you may be eligible for payment and support for funeral costs. We’ll make this payment to the deceased’s estate.Before you can claim, you need to get your doctor to complete a COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme medical report. You need this as proof when you submit the claim.”…..the jig is up.

        Vaccine mysteries need explaining

        Is anybody checking up on the reports about adverse effects to vaccination?

        Rebecca Weisser
        16 April 2022 9:00 AM

        It started with the ambulances. Queensland recorded its fourth-highest number of triple-0 calls for a single day last Monday with paramedics waiting up to three hours to offload patients and nine ambulances waiting outside a major hospital because there were no beds.

        Queensland Health Minister Yvette D’Ath was flummoxed. ‘I don’t think anyone can explain why we saw a 40 per cent increase in code ones,’ she told journalists. ‘We had a lot of heart attacks and chest pains and breathing/respiratory issues. Sometimes you can’t explain why those things happen.’

        [..]

        But what explains the increase in demand which has occurred in summer, not during the winter flu season? It’s not the pandemic. NSW, for example, has a combined private and government hospital capacity of 12,500 beds including 1,000 in intensive care units, but there are only 1,583 people admitted to hospitals ‘with’ Covid, and only 71 in intensive care. The chief executive of Ambulance Tasmania offered a clue saying that while a lot of the patients had respiratory complaints or chest pain in line with Covid, there was also an increase in mental health cases and in falls. What caused them?

        [..]

        Since the vaccines were rolled out in February last year, 19,926 people have reported adverse reactions and 815 people have died. More than two every day. Compare that to influenza vaccines – 21 deaths in 47 years, less than one death every two years. Are any of these tragedies caused by the Covid vaccine? Is anyone at the TGA trying to find out?

        [..]

    Thanks Jo.

    We do not have a medical problem here, we have a systemic society problem where certain medical issues have been ruled “off limits” and “dissent” is punished or pressure is applied so that data never sees the light of day, or research is not done.

    The lurch Left in Western society is totally to blame here as Leftists dictate what is politically correct and go after any who dare question otherwise. And so many useful idiots across our society in medical, political, education etc help enforce complete lies and the utter garbage that is so often the pet theories of leftists.

    Mass vaccination has entered the pantheon of Leftist ideology and must be rolled out regardless of the results.

    Until doctors actually speak out on this issue instead of being useful idiots then we will get nowhere. They can point at other people but they are at the coalface and need to say “no more” to the politicians who are pushing these dangerous and worthless treatments. Its clear the vast majority do not care at all about their patients welfare and are too illiterate to bother to actually do their own research on these unproven treatments.

    Also until the Australian population start pushing back on the Leftist silencing and dangerous policies we will continue to have this happening. Hopefully at the polling booths in May we can send a message by voting for Freedom candidates rather than the WEF aligned Labour and Coalition parties.

    Heart disease risk soars after COVID, even with a mild case. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-022-00403-0
    Although vaccination can raise the risk of myocarditis, the vaccination risk is far lower than contracting the virus when unvaccinated.

      Heart disease risk soars after COVID VAXXINE..

      There, fixed your missed word.

      Its the spike protein, which the vaxxines makes the body create.

      So let’s do a quick review of the propaganda.

      Injections will stop you from contracting the disease, or

      Injections won’t stop you from contracting the disease but will stop you from getting sick or transmitting the disease, or

      Injections won’t stop you from contracting or transmitting the disease but will stop you from getting really sick, or

      Injections won’t stop you from contracting or transmitting the disease or stop you from suffering myocarditis or from having heart attacks or strokes or stop you from getting really sick in other ways.

      But everybody must have more and more injections, especially in Victoria where the uninjected are not permitted to play golf on a golf course or have their hair done in a salon.

      And if you do suffer from myocarditis or have a heart attack or a stroke shortly after the injection then it was because you previously had the disease and didn’t know it.

      Did I get that right Simon? Do you think this pig of a story will fly?

        Prof Norman Fenton has done an outstanding job on highlighting that the vaxxes do NOT reduce death rates, and that this is in fact driven from the fraudulent insertion of a 14 day (21 days here in AU…) waiting period before unvaxxed are jabbed, or double vaxxed are boosted. The reality is far different with the latest Canadian data showing the double vaxxed and boosted being several times more likely to die than unvaxxed from covid.

        https://rumble.com/vtxi1h-open-science-sessions-how-flawed-data-has-driven-the-narrative.html

        And we all know jabbing greatly increases the chance of infection – 6 times based on NZ data.

        In my own case, I was well aware that I had an inherited susceptibility to beriberi but had no reason to expect that condition to be triggered by the vaccine.

          we have data on the following for Athletes
          no vaccine and no covid, ie the baseline from previous studies before covid
          then
          vaccines (multiple types, so that needs to be addressed) and covid

          We have evidence that covid itself causes heart problems (addressed by Simon), significantly that would be all cases, not just athletes
          We have evidence that the vaccine could cause heart problems (as addressed in the post itself), again, that would be all cases, not just athletes.

          What we don’t have is the info for the athletes on which vaccine, and/or had they been infected with covid to measure against the baseline.

          I did think my initial comment encapsulated all that, but happy to explain it in more detail.

      the vaccination risk is far lower than contracting the virus when unvaccinated.

      I think that means you’re saying vaccination reduces the risk of heart complications from covid.

      If so, does that mean that anyone who is vaccinated and has heart problems then it’s more likely the vaccine than covid?

      I guess we’ll know the story when you get people’s covid status (pre and post vaccination) from the same groups who won’t release the vaccination status of the individuals who had complications.

      Western Australia might be a good data set to check. Low incidence of covid until March 2022 and high vaccination rate.

      Below is the link to the supplementary tables in that study – table 21-24 are very obscurely labelled – they are the relevant parts of the study to the question of whether people who have been vaccinated are more likely to get Myo- or Pericarditis after they’ve been vaccinated, if they catch Covid. If I read it correctly, people who’ve been vaccinated are 9 times more likely to have Myo or Pericarditis if they catch Covid, whereas unvaccinated people are 5 times more likely to have Myo or Pericarditis if they catch Covid. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong!

      Strange study, full study here. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-022-01689-3
      To further examine the robustness of our approach, we developed and tested a pair of negative-exposure controls. We hypothesized that receipt of influenza vaccination in odd-numbered and even-numbered calendar days between 1 March 2020 and 15 January 2021 would be associated with similar risks of the pre-specified cardiovascular outcomes examined in this analysis. We, therefore, tested the associations between receipt of influenza vaccine in even-numbered (n = 571,291) versus odd-numbered (n = 605,453) calendar days and the pre-specified cardiovascular outcomes. We used the same data sources, cohort design, analytical approach (including covariate specification and weighting method) and outcomes. The results suggest that receipt of influenza vaccination in odd-numbered calendar days versus even-numbered calendar days was not significantly associated with any of the pre-specified cardiovascular outcomes (Supplementary Table 26).
      Why would you compare the flu vaccine to COVID cases, seems pointless?
      No vaccination status for Covid injection of persons.
      As the study was completed in Feb 22, influenza vaccine in odd-numbered or even-numbered calendar days between 1 March 2020 and 15 January 2021).
      No mention of date only a 12 month period. though it does state, 31 October 2021 was the end of follow-up. so around the time of the Vaxx roll out?
      Hard to make sense of that study and the few dates mentioned.

        They deal with the vaccination question in the following paragraph which refers to Supplementary Tables 21-24 (which I linked to)

        Risk of myocarditis and pericarditis without COVID-19 vaccination. Because some COVID-19 vaccines might be associated with a very rare risk of myocarditis or pericarditis, and to eliminate any putative contribution of potential vaccine exposure to the out- comes of myocarditis and pericarditis in this study, we conducted two analyses. First, we censored cohort participants at the time of receiving the first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine. Second, we adjusted for vaccination as a time-varying covariate. Both analyses were conducted versus both the contemporary and historical con- trol groups. The results suggested that COVID-19 was associated with increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis in both analyses (Supplementary Tables 21–24).

        Adjusting for vaccination as a time-varying covariant – not sure about this either – it seems to me that wouldn’t be necessary unless there’s a variable for myocarditis associated with vaccination that they have to filter out? I wish there was more about this in this study because I suspect that is the main question everbody wants to know about.

      According to the New Scientist vaccine is at least 2-fold more likely to produce myocarditis than the disease. And, this is just the risk for the basic 2-injection course as the booster also carries this risk. So at least 4-fold if you go for the booster.

    I’ve even had people at church, sincere Christians who are generally truthful and honest in most areas of their lives, who wouldn’t think about lying, tell me there are two sets of facts. “How do we choose between them?” they say, as if truth was an optional extra; they usually say this because they don’t want to talk about it.

    In Victoria: in 2020 there were 20368 confirmed cases and 820 official deaths (653 in Aged Care). No vaccines available.
    In 2021 there were 156166 confirmed cases and 705 official deaths. ‘Fully’ vaccinated = 92.4%
    In 2022 there have been 1,236,451 ‘cases’ and 1284 deaths (to the 13 April)

    In that nature study, Simon, it says “Our analyses censoring participants at time of vaccination and controlling for vaccination as a time-varying covariate show that the increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis reported in this study is significant in people who were not vaccinated and is evident regardless of vaccination status.”

    What does it mean that they “censored” participants at the time of vaccination? Someone needs to get hold of the raw data (apparently in the study it is available) and find out.

    If the proponents of these experimental substances are so confident of their safety and efficacy, why are they so terrified of scientific enquiry into them and publication of unadulterated injury and death information?

    Why do professionals risk losing their jobs for asking perfectly legitimate scientific and medical questions?

    This is not how science or medicine is meant to be done.

    Shingles also seems to be around in unusual numbers recently. Maybe it’s the demographic band I’m in (over 50s) but I have heard of numerous cases anecdotally lately, even via callers to ABC (I know, my bad) late night radio who report being laid up with shingles almost every other night. Vaxx is never mentioned, but shingles is on Pfizzer’s reported list of side-effects.

      Shingles. Get the shingles vaccination.
      A few % of shingles victims get severe, long lasting nerve pain, particularly the trigeminal nerve in the left side of the face. My wife has had 9 years of unending, severe pain now. No remedies work.
      These days, anyone can get a jab to lower the chances of getting shingles.
      Thoroughly recommended that all people do that.

        Geoff: Gabapentin is often prescribed for shingles/post herpetic neuralgia. It blocks the nerve pain and lessens symptoms. Something to ask an attending physician. Might help. It helps me to manage sciatica, very well.

          Gabapentin was prescribed for my dad’s phantom limb and stump pain. All it did was sedate him. He was helped by fentanyl patches, and the sedation from them wore off in a couple of weeks. Pain control was good until he died 3 years later.
          The fashion for gabapentin is based on the idea that opioids are BAD.

            Gabapentin works for most people, not all. It depends on the person. Works well to block my sciatic nerve pain, better than the epidural steroid spinal injections. Opiods aren’t “bad”, but can be problematic due to side effects. Gab is simply an alternative and its applicability depends on the situation and person’s response to it.

            In any case, something to discuss with your physician if possibly useful to a given situation.

    It’s interesting how the Left advocate compulsory vaccination in this case. Looking back 40 years and the spread of HIV among a certain group, imagine the outrage from the Left if conservative thinkers advocated compulsory vaccination for the susceptible group, should a vaccine have been available. We would have been told, “their body, their choice”. In fact, a vaccine is probably not possible for HIV for the same reason it’s probably not possible for COVID, the high mutation rate.

      Much of the intolerant tolerance derives from Herbert Marcuse and his concepts on Repressive Tolerance.

      https://www.nationalreview.com/2015/06/herbert-marcuse-and-new-intolerance/

      “Marcuse was frank about what this intolerance would mean: ‘Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left.’ ”

      “…..the new intolerance exacts a tremendous personal price from dissenters. It is not enough to argue with ideas: Those who espouse heretical ideas must be destroyed; they must lose their jobs, their reputations, and their places in the public square. The notion of “shaming” to the point of personal destruction seems a principal modus operandi of PC politics.”

        A nine year old girl died / reported on the 25th March as dying after one medicine and your answer is 11 (people died after vaccination to stop them dying).
        The TGA states nobody under 34 died in that reporting week.
        I do not know what kind of illness allows someone to deny a report that seven people who were perfectly healthy died of cardiac arrest after being administered one medicine.

      Excellent! Ivermectin doesn’t work!

      So, let’s “unban” it for those that like taking placebos. [Totally safe but (allegedly) ineffective]

      Similarly, the pro-clot-shotters can pursue that approach. [(allegedly) safe and totally ineffective]

      Now, just need to bring in a +% tax surcharge for the pro-clot-shotters to repay the massive debt incurred by government (on their behalf) to acquire all of those “free” shots and boosters. Any surplus can be directed towards compensation to the vaxx-free that have been mistreated so badly throughout the plandemic.

      On the upside, it’s unlikely the “booster-boosters” will have to pay the surcharge for very long, unless death taxes are still a policy-thing amongst the rabid Left. Oh, wait…

    The issue of detoxing your body from vaccines is now becoming quite a subject. Basically, how to remove the spike proteins that are floating around your body from the vaccines. I was surprised, but it make sense, but one method is to simply take the early anti virals. You know, the ones we cant talk about. So , on the list is HCQ, IVM and Quercetin, IVM being one of the most favoured because of its multi site activity , particularly the furin cleavage function. There’s also a list of “natural” detox products. Plus, some others recommending saunas and hot baths etc. Methinks a lot of the top level athletes will be going down this route.

      Lots of rabbit holes to go down and find yourself very busy while your life drains away.

      For whatever reason most ‘vaccinated people’ I know appear to be functioning as normal in what is the ‘New Normal’. Why? I do not know. Bhakdi & Wodarg warned us I am seeing plenty of others with cardiac problems and witnessed the death of an elderly person close to me directly after her booster (healthy that day and yet not a vaccine death according to her Doctor).

      My advice to those around me is to avoid being sucked into taking expensive ‘Natural’ chemicals from China to protect you against an expensive approved chemicals from China.

      Eat, drink, be merry and find a community group that is doing something useful for those around them. Team sports, service clubs, go to Anzac Day and remember the sacrifice made for the Freedoms that still remain. A life well lived may be a better choice than dying in isolation surrounded by bottles of potions.

      Detox, reply to Ross

      My assumptions, for comment, are-
      this approach would apply to any vaccine using the ‘spike protein’, not just the mRNA. So detox could be applicable on AstraZenca and Novamax.

      However, the mRNA vaccines get the body to produce the spike protein so it would be necessary to continue the detox for as long as the vaccine is ‘working’ or until the production rate is low enough for the immune system to deal with it.

      For the others, one detox should be sufficient.

      20

      • #
        Ross

        Yes, true. For IVM, detox doses were either weekly or monthly at 0.4 mg /kg body weight. Would apply to all types of vaccines. They are all spike protein based technology.

      I look at this data and observe it is predominantly occurring in countries that had high covid case numbers and deaths.

      Long-Covid has been known about for 2 years now.

      Something I did not now until I looked was that Shane Warne was on a ventilator with Covid.

      An unnamed Port Adelaide player tested positive for Covid – no idea if it was Ollie Wines.

      The data would need to be carefully analysed to isolate the impact of Covid and Covid vaccination.

        Shane Warne said (I’m paraphrasing) he was not hospitalised and that the ventilator he was given was for trialing for the purpose of seeing if it avoids long covid. He also said his symptoms were only a few days and weren’t severe.

        I don’t know if there is a ventilator for home use, but I think he said something like it was a “special ventilator”. Given he is an asthmatic and was not hospitalised, I would speculate maybe he was given a nebuliser type machine and not a full-on hospital type ventilator.

        That’s the gist of what he said.

          Found the Warne quotes about his covid experience and use of a ventilator.

          “It wasn’t because I could not breathe, or anything like that, it was basically a special ventilator that I was trialling to make sure there were no longer-lasting effects that Covid would have on me,” Warne had told the Herald Sun. “I have been fine, I have been able to run, I have been able to do everything. I have been absolutely fine,” he said.

          “It was a bit like a hangover, I had a pounding headache. The first couple of days, when I tested positive, I just had a thumping headache and I had one day where I had the shivers, but (was) sweating, like when you have the flu.”

          “I lost a bit of sense of taste for a few days, but after three or four days I was fine. I have apparently got the holy grail. I have been double vaccinated and I have had Covid, so I am meant to be absolutely fine now.”

    I think any major sporting team will be now amending their “health and safety protocols”. That is, demanding athletes report any abnormal heart issues, even if they are only minor.

    The provisional mortality statistics report Jan 2020-Oct 2021 from the Australian Bureau of Statistics that was released just before Christmas on Wednesday 22-12-2021 provide some interesting information and a useful link to important information. There does not appear to be an ischemic heart disease or a cerebrovascular signal in this data.

    Extracts below are from : Provisional Mortality Statistics, Jan 2020 – Oct 2021 | Australian Bureau of Statistics (abs.gov.au) Released 22/12/2021

    The age-standardised death rate (SDR)for January to October 2021 was 357.8 per 100,000 people and is
    below the average rate for 2015-2019 which recorded an SDR of 386.5 and it is comparable to 2020, where an SDR of 355.3 per 100,000 people was recorded for the same period.

    Ischaemic heart disease 11,636 deaths occurred from ischaemic heart disease between January and October 2021. This is 1,163 deaths, (9.1%) below the 2015-19 average

    Cerebrovascular Diseases refer to a number of conditions such as stroke, cerebral aneurysms and stenosis that affect blood flow and circulation to the brain. 7,615 deaths from cerebrovascular diseases (including strokes) occurred between January and October 2021. This is 636 deaths (7.7%) below the 2015-19 average, comparable to the 7,623 deaths at the same point in 2020

    We are informed in this report that “Most of the 1671” people who died from COVID-19 in the reference period Jan 2020-Oct 2021 “had acute respiratory symptoms such as viral pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome listed as a consequence of the virus.”. Given this it is difficult to understand why the ABS would decide to NOT include the deaths due to COVID-19 in the overall deaths from “Respiratory diseases” category in the first report.

    These figures, and the more recent figures from a less informative update from the ABS released on 15/02/2022 https://www.abs.gov.au/articles/covid-19-mortality-australia make it absolutely clear that the public health vaccination focus should be for people with comorbidities, the elderly and the disadvantaged.

    Given the reduced efficacy and the probably short lived and possibly even disadvantageous effect of vaccination with the current vaccines against the omicron variant of the virus currently in circulation, why does the “health advice” continue to recommend vaccinating young children, and mandate the vaccination of adolescents and adults under 60 who have no comorbidities?

    See Link for complete details.

    Unfortunately, this study is pretty flawed. You can’t really compare current death rates to those from 30 years ago. There has been a huge increase in the number of atheles

    Firstly,there has been huge social economic changes in developing countries. This has allow more people to stay in school longer, and participate in more extracurricular sporting activities. In the past many would have quit at a primary school level to a work on the family farm.

    Social economic changes and technological improvements have allowed for more broadcasting of sporting events to more people. This will lead to more sponsorship deals, resulting in more professional athletes.

    Another problem with looking at sporting incidents from the pre-internet days means a health incident or death from a student, local sport group would at most only appear in the local paper. Hence studies of sporting death would have not found these incidents that was not widely reported.

    So for this study to be valid they need to compare sporting incidents to more recent years.

    On a tangent the athletes are told to take a 2 week break after getting a shot. I wonder how many ordinary folks was also given that important advice.

    Inheritanely, there is nothing wrong with limitations of a product, some antibiotics need to taken with food to reduce their side effects.

    However, don’t keep people in the dark about the side-effects, nor should you force people to take them.

    The Democrats party officials have lost their collective minds. The RNA vaccine dangers and Pfizer/Democratic government’s efforts to hide those dangers is becoming a major political issue in the US. Hurting and lying to people is not good politics. The US population is going to turn against the fake media and the fake US Democratic party of America.

    The dangers of the RNA vaccines is going to be used in political commercials and in get out the vote, audience presentations. This type of issue makes people jump up and down angry. This is better than the southern border crisis because there are no political sides.

    This is an effective professional presentation, to a large US audience, that explains how and why the RNA vaccines are damaging organs. The Pfizer released RNA data included infertility issues. Pfizer knew their vaccine produced spikes that collected in woman’s ovaries and caused infertility. It appears it is likely the RNA vaccines will cause a surge in cancers in every country.

    “Watch professional sports in one year – most of the athletes who took the Covid-19 injection will have left the game – because they are no longer competitive. Professional athletes are highly-tuned humans, operating at the peak of fitness – they are the ‘canaries in the coal mine” and the vascular clogging caused by the injections will cause them sufficient harm to make them uncompetitive.

    This will allow “herd immunity” to develop much sooner and older people will thus be more protected AND THE ECONOMY WON’T CRASH.”

    I’ve had some success apparently “reversing” Covid-19 “vaccine” injuries with Ivermectin and etc. Small sample, one physician and one registered nurse, both with fatigue and bleeding, both now say the bleeding has stopped and the fatigue is gone – after 5-10 days of Ivermectin.

    Ivermectin IS a quick cure for Covid-19 – as little as 12mg/day (for an adult) for five days and people are 95% better – losing the fatigue sometimes takes time, or more Ivermectin.
