On Friday, October 7, 2022, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo released a study on the dangers of the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines and recommended that adult men under 40 stay away from the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
"The Florida Department of Health (Department) conducted an analysis through a self-controlled case series, which is a technique originally developed to evaluate vaccine safety,” a news release from the Florida Department of Health states. “This analysis found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group.”
Newsweek reported the analysis clarified that COVID-19 vaccination was associated with a "modestly increased risk for cardiac-related mortality" 28 days after receiving the vaccine.
The primary analysis was conducted on Floridians who were 18 years and older "who died within 25-weeks of COVID-19 vaccination" since the vaccines were first rolled out in December 2020.
However, noted Newsweek staff writer Fatma Khaled, the analysis excluded individuals who had a confirmed COVID-19 infection, received a booster or received their last COVID-19 vaccination after December 8, 2021. The study concluded on June 1.
"Individuals with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when considering vaccination and discuss with their health care provider," the state's health department said in the statement.
"Based on currently available data, patients should be informed of the possible cardiac complications that can arise after receiving a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac related death among men in this age group," it added as new guidelines.
The analysis said that men over 60 years old had a 10 percent increased risk of cardiac-related death within 28 days of receiving vaccines that contain mRNA. It also said that vaccines without mRNA didn't have these increased risks among any population.
No sooner had Dr. Ladapo released the study, than the tweet announcing the release of the study was taken down by Twitter for "disinformation." Twitter restored the post on Sunday morning after a firestorm of criticism.
Ladapo is an outspoken skeptic of COVID-19 vaccines who has questioned both the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine. Ladapo's concerns are shared by many who point out that, while the vaccines were originally sold as a traditional preventative vaccine, now the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine narrative has shifted to claim the vaccine may prevent the disease and may lessen its symptoms.
POLITICO reported that Dr. Ladapo has previously recommended that young children should not receive the Covid-19 vaccine. The Florida Department of Health over the summer did not pre-order vaccines for children aged 5 and under even though 49 other states did in the lead-up to the Food and Drug Administration issuing emergency authorization for young kids to receive the Pfizer and Moderna shots.
Bryan Griffin, press secretary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, called Twitter’s actions “an unacceptable and Orwellian move for narrative over fact.”
Critics of the study and Dr. Ladapo’s conclusions from it have objected that it has yet to be peer reviewed and have questioned its methodology.
However, those same critics were nowhere to be found when flawed, and even fraudulent, studies and projections of COVID mortality were released at the beginning of the pandemic (or as we prefer to call it, the Chinese Communist biological weapons attack).
On Monday, Ladapo created a new thread on Twitter discussing the study’s results and process, saying he loved the “discussion that we’ve stimulated” and praising discussing science “transparently instead of trying to cancel one another.” In the thread, Ladapo responds to three critiques of the study.
The critiques, and responses:
The coordination between Big Government, Big Tech and Big Pharma to suppress any scientific inquiry into the origin of the COVID virus, how it spread from Communist China to the rest of the world and the side effects and efficacy of the mRNA vaccines appears to us to be a conspiracy to enforce a political narrative, rather than what a democratically elected government should do – which is foster open and transparent scientific inquiry conducted in the public interest.
Our view is that studying the COVID virus and vaccines should proceed along the same scientific method path of inquiry that scientists and physicians have used since the Italian physicist Galileo Galilee began the modern age of scientific inquiry over 400-years ago. If the monumental work of Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein can be continually tested, questioned, and refined, surely the pronouncements of a second-rate bureaucrat like Anthony Fauci and the profit-driven results of companies like Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna can and should be subjected to continued scientific inquiry.
