Prominent cardiologists tie alarming trend to COVID shots

A former NFL defensive tackle and a champion motorcycle racer are the latest examples of apparently healthy people dying suddenly amid evidence the COVID-19 mRNA shots are causing serious heart damage at a rate exponentially higher than for previous vaccines.

There was no report that 35-year-old Keith Farmer, a four-time British champion, and 45-year-old Adrian Dingle, who spent five seasons with the San Diego Chargers, took the COVID vaccine.

However, citing the available scientific evidence, prominent cardiologists – including Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Aseem Malhotra – believe the best explanation for the “sudden and unexpected” deaths and cardiac events in otherwise healthy people is the COVID-19 vaccines.

Dingle apparently showed no signs of ill health when he recently was with former Charger Marcellus Wiley, a former ESPN host.

“RIP to my teammate @AdrianDingle,” Wiley tweeted. “We were just hanging, laughing, swapping war stories, and talking family. Rest easy big dog!”

Mississippi State football player Sam Westmoreland recently was found dead just days before his 19th birthday. His cause of death was under investigation.

McCullough, in a video interview with WND in which he talked about the threat to his medical credentials for allegedly purveying “misinformation,” pointed out that in the past, long before the COVID vaccines, athletes who died sudden typically were diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an abnormal thickening of the heart, or premature heart blockage.

Now, athletes are thoroughly screened to rule out those conditions.

McCullough noted that peer-reviewed literature shows the vaccines cause myocarditis. He cited a U.K. study that found about 100 fatal cases of myocarditis linked to the vaccine. And he referenced a case report published in August in the journal Archives of Pathology that found a connection between a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and myocarditis in two adolescents. A case report by South Korean researchers presented the autopsy findings of a 22-year-old man who developed chest pain five days after the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and died seven hours later.

“When someone dies and the family doesn’t come out and say anything, or doctors don’t come out and say anything, it’s a reasonable assumption that it was the vaccine, until proven otherwise,” McCullough told WND.

He referenced the case of the 17-year-old daughter of Rep. Sean Casten, D-Ill., who died in her sleep in June. The congressman had indicated in a Twitter post before her death that she had been fully vaccinated. But the family said in a statement, “We don’t know what caused the arrhythmia, and likely never will.”

Dr. James Olsson, a Johns Hopkins-trained biomedical and cancer researcher, keeps track of the reported “died suddenly” incidents via Twitter. And there’s a “died suddenly” page on Facebook.

Malhotra, who was one of the first to take the COVID-19 vaccine and promote it on British television, has published a study tying “sudden deaths” to the COVID-19 vaccines. He said in a video posted on Twitter that the COVID mRNA vaccine likely is a “primary cause in all unexpected cardiac arrests, heart attacks, strokes, cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure since 2021, until proven otherwise.”

He called for a suspension of the shots, arguing the evidence the risk of harm is greater than any benefit.

McCullough’s remarks were part of an hourlong conversation with WND in which he also weighed in on:

  • The Atlantic article calling for pandemic “amnesty”;
  • What the latest studies find about the risk of myocarditis in young people from the vaccines;
  • The ineffectiveness of the new bivalent booster and the indication that it increases the risk of infection;
  • The CDC adding the COVID mRNA vaccine to the childhood vaccine schedule and how the move has put health freedom and the health of children on the ballot in the upcoming midterms;
  • What the new Congress might do to bring accountability and reform in the wake of the pandemic.

McCullough, along with Yale University Medical School emeritus professor Dr. Harvey Risch and others, recently launched The Wellness Company, a membership-based, holistic, prevention-oriented approach to health care through telemedicine and, eventually, through in-person consultation as well.

    Shame on you for publishing this bit of propaganda, especially since the subjects of the headline aren’t even alleged to have gotten the vaccine. I’m a new reader giving your site a try and am very disappointed.

    1. Fred S Karasek

      How does that sand taste? I’ll bet it goes really good with eggs.. See Margaret’s post with link below. Facts does not equal propaganda.

  2. Bill

    This is garbage reporting, the physicians referenced didn’t treat the two people. You’re just speculating and pretending it’s fact.

    I’m all for following the evidence in suspicious deaths, but it has to be clear and truthful… otherwise keep you mouth (fingers?) shut.

    The point of this article, as it is a follow up to a previous one, is this keeps happening over and over again. The ONLY common denominator is this vaccine. You can continue to deny it over and over again or you can consider it a possibility. It is not even a vaccine in the true sense. CCT has published a trove of articles about this from varying sources.

      Agree 100%. An open mind, critical thinking plus mutual respect will reduce the divisiveness.
      The article below is a huge U-turn after years of insisting that the gene jabs were safe and effective!

      “The decision comes after the release of multiple medical studies which show a correlation and causation between the vaccines and an exponential increase in heart problems, specifically among men 40 years old and younger. Only a year ago the link between COVID vaccinations and myocarditis was widely denied.
      Studies also show that myocarditis risk increases with the number of boosters a person has taken.”

      Better late than never. Sadly it will not undo the unspeakable damage that has been done.

    Thank you for taking the brave first step of trying to wake up the world with what’s going on with these jabs. Unfortunately those who are awake now are so because they’ve lost a family member or they themselves have been vaccine injured. I belong to several groups online where people in the thousands from all over the globe share their stories of sudden death and injury illness from the jabs and it’s absolutely heartbreaking. Once it’s inside of you, it’s a Trojan horse that cannot be removed. It trashes your immune system shutting off your body’s ability to heal itself and after that, it’s only a matter of time before you start to show evidence of harm. Several doctors I follow are guessing 5-10 years for some and for others it’s very immediate as we are now seeing. Praying for humanity.

      Agreed, tragic indeed. The Covid gene vaccines are designed force the human body to make artificial spike proteins. How many? How long does it stay in the body? What else do the spikes do? No verifiable data exists as yet.
      As you so aptly state, it is like a Trojan
      horse. Once jabbed – suffer the hidden and unknown consequences.
      The immune system is also severely impacted. Could this be the reason why a variety of diseases, which had been dormant for many years, have suddenly reappeared with a vengeance?

      Research data confirm that risks of myocarditis are not limited to young people. See the article below:

      All Age Groups at Higher Risk of Myocarditis Death After COVID Vaccines.“https://default.salsalabs.org/Tdadb377e-7bdf-45f4-96d7-1dd54d098335/1f3f68f1-1e32-4c05-aaa5-2940af3c4f91

      Thank you for your intelligent post, it is refreshing and so much appreciated.

    I challenge anyone who denies that these deaths are wide spread to actually go view the source material and the countless number of videos of people dropping dead. Especially young healthy people. This is real, unfortunately.

  6. Sylvia

    The article did not mention whether or not the two athletes had been injected with Covid gene vaccines. Clearly it is an unknown fact, and no assumption can be made one way or another.
    What is known from a multitude of data obtained through scientific research is that the gene vaccines carry risks of serious adverse events, either directly or indirectly. The evidence is there to see for those who are not blinded by bias or scientism.

    Where there is any doubt whatsoever, it is wise to err on the side of caution.
    Rushing heedlessly into the unknown is based on scientism, not science.

    Science is based on respectful dialogue, ethical scepticism, and research data that must be demonstrable as well as repeatable. Any data meeting these criteria will remains valid only until proven otherwise. There is no dogma in true science.

    Medical ethics must be restored in America.

    Greed, bias, and political affiliations are taboo in matters of health.
