Experts are raising the alarm over the soaring number of deaths caused by heart attacks and strokes among young people.
Excess deaths have skyrocketed in the past two years but many fear the issue is being ignored, or even covered up, by governments, Big Tech, and the corporate media.
Early last year, a bombshell study compiled data from several life insurance companies.
The researchers determined that there was an overwhelming spike in the death of young people.
The data revealed an unexplained increase (40%) in “all-cause deaths” among 18 to 49-year-olds.
Three physician “whistle-blowers” have just released real data from the DoD, drawn from the clinical diagnosis codes.
The increases found are from 2021, compared to the five year average from 2016 to 2020.
- Myocardial infarction: 269% increase
- Miscarriages: 300% increase
- Bell’s palsy: 291% increase
- Congenital malformations: 156% increase
- Female infertility: 471% increase
- Pulmonary embolisms: 467% increase
- Neurologic abnormalities: 300% increase
- Cancers: 300% increase
As of now, the CDC has not explained this data.
One year later, United Press International (UPI) finally published a report noting that there is a large increase in heart attacks and strokes in young adults.
Stories like Conway’s are becoming more common, with studies showing heart attacks and stroke are on the rise among Americans younger than 40.
Certain healthy habits can help prevent heart problems — but getting younger adults to accept their risks remains an obstacle.
“It is alarming that younger people don’t feel that they’re at risk for heart disease, but it’s not surprising,” said Dr. Laxmi Mehta, director of preventative cardiology and women’s cardiovascular health at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
“Most young people think heart disease only happens in old people, but that’s not the case,” Mehta said in the release.
Explanations are being trial-ballooned by health agencies and the corporate media, however.
For example, American Heart Association blames the spike on poor mental health and depression:
Young adults with depression or overall poor mental health report more heart attacks, strokes and risk factors for cardiovascular disease than their peers without mental health issues, new research shows.
The findings, published recently in the Journal of the American Heart Association, add to a large body of evidence linking cardiovascular disease risk and death with depression, but leave unanswered questions about how one may lead to the other.
Meanwhile, media outlets claim that obesity and smoking are likely to blame for rising heart attack deaths:
Obesity is a major risk factor for heart disease, and it is becoming increasingly common among teens and young adults.
This is due in part to the rise in fast food and sugary drinks, as well as a lack of physical activity.
High blood pressure, another major risk factor for heart disease, is also on the rise among young people.
This can be caused by obesity, stress, and a diet high in salt.
Smoking is another major risk factor for heart attacks in teens and young adults.
Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes damage the heart and blood vessels, making it more likely that a person will have a heart attack.
Smoking can also lead to other health problems such as lung cancer and emphysema.
And while all of that may be true, it doesn’t explain the spike in deaths recorded over the past two years or so.
It leads to the question of whether Big Pharma is putting pressure on the media for exactly this type of coverage.
The recent revelations published in the Twitter Files demonstrate the enormous power of the pharmaceutical industry to silence data.
As Slay News has reported, Pfizer, in particular, has been exposed for pressuring Twitter to censor information that doesn’t fit the Covid vaccine narratives.
According to recently revealed internal emails, Twitter complied with lobbying efforts from Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb and censored posts that hurt the Big Pharma company’s profits.
Gottlieb pressured Twitter to censor posts on natural immunity and label such information as “misleading.”
While new Twitter boss Elon Musk has released the internal communications files in the name of transparency, Big Pharma’s influence on other Big Tech giants’ censorship practices remains hidden.
As a reminder of why many people remain skeptical of the “explanations” being promoted by Big Tech, the media, and health officials, several other Western countries have nixed the vaccine for children and teenagers.
Those nations assert that the risks of vaccination outweigh the risks of infection:
Australia’s former deputy chief medical officer said the country should reconsider its stance on giving the dose to children above the age of five.
The UK has stopped offering the vaccine to healthy children who turned five after August, while Sweden no longer recommends it to teenagers aged 12 to 17.
In Denmark, since July no one under the age of 18 can get vaccinated against Covid, with health officials saying very small numbers of children get severely ill from the disease, and therefore vaccination isn’t necessary.
Additionally, Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph A. Ladapo issued a warning to young men receiving covid vaccines.
As Slay News reported, Ladapo cited an analysis by the state’s health department that indicated the shots pose an “increased risk” of cardiac-related death.
“Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of,” Ladapo tweeted.
“This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39.
“FL will not be silent on the truth.”
Renowned American professor of medicine Jay Bhattacharya is now calling for health agencies to become detached from political agendas to ensure such issues are fully investigated in the interest of public health.
Bhattacharya was blocked by social media platforms for questioning the effectiveness of lockdowns and raising concerns about unleashing untested mRNA vaccines on the public.
“It’s time for a new generation of leadership in public health,” Bhattacharya tweeted.
“This time with a better appreciation of the scientific method and less prone to panic and authoritarian excess.
“This generation failed its key test and cannot be trusted with the public’s health.”
