In a November 12, 2021, weblog submit,1 Maryanne Demasi, Ph.D., critiques how the advantages of the COVID-19 pictures have been exaggerated by the drug corporations and misrepresented to the general public by an uncritical media. She has beforehand given many lectures on how the drug corporations conflated absolute and relative dangers for statin medicine.2

Demasi was a revered Australian science presenter at ABC tv till she produced a Catalyst report on the risks of Wi-Fi and cellphones. Within the wake of the controversy it raised, she and 11 of her workers members had been axed and the episode retracted.3 That was 2016. At the moment, Demasi is likely one of the few skilled journalists in search of and publishing the reality about COVID-19.

Absolute Versus Relative Danger Discount

In her submit, Demasi highlights one of the generally used tips within the e-book — conflating absolute and relative danger discount. As famous by Demasi, AstraZeneca and Australia’s well being minister, Greg Hunt, claimed the AstraZeneca injection supplied “100% safety” towards COVID-19 demise. How did they get this quantity? Demasi explains:4

“Within the trial5 of 23,848 topics … there was one demise within the placebo group and no deaths within the vaccinated group. One much less demise out of a complete of 1, certainly was a relative discount of 100%, however the absolute discount was 0.01%.”

Equally, Pfizer’s COVID shot was mentioned to be 95% efficient towards the an infection, however this too is the relative danger discount, not absolutely the discount. Absolutely the danger discount for Pfizer’s shot was a meager 0.84%.

It’s price noting that an extremely low variety of folks had been contaminated within the first place. Solely 8 out of 18,198 vaccine recipients developed COVID signs (0.04%), and 162 of the 18,325 within the placebo group (0.88%).

Since your danger of COVID was minuscule to start with, even when the shot was in a position to cut back your absolute danger by 100%, it might nonetheless be trivial in real-world phrases.

In line with Gerd Gigerenzer, director of the Harding Centre for Danger Literacy on the Max Planck Institute, solely quoting the relative danger discount is a “sin” towards clear communication, as it may be used as a “deliberate tactic to control or persuade folks.” Demasi additionally quotes John Ioannidis, professor at Stanford College, who informed her:6

“This isn’t occurring only for vaccines. Over many many years, RRR [relative risk reduction] has been the dominant approach of speaking outcomes of scientific trials. Virtually at all times, RRR appears to be like nicer than absolute danger reductions.”

Demasi continues:7

“When requested if there was any justification for deceptive the general public in regards to the vaccine’s advantages to encourage uptake, Prof Ioannidis rejected the notion.

‘I do not see how one can enhance uptake through the use of deceptive info. I’m all in favor of accelerating uptake, however this wants to make use of full info, in any other case eventually incomplete info will result in misunderstandings and can backfire,’ says Ioannidis.

The best way authorities have communicated danger to the general public, is more likely to have misled and distorted the general public’s notion of the vaccine’s profit and underplayed the harms. This, in essence, is a violation of the moral and authorized obligations of knowledgeable consent.”

US Well being Authorities Have Misrepresented the Knowledge

U.S. well being authorities, like Australia’s, are responsible of misrepresenting the information to the general public. In February 2021, Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention director Rochelle Walensky co-wrote a JAMA paper8 which said that “Medical trials have proven that the vaccines licensed to be used within the U.S. are extremely efficient towards COVID-19 an infection, extreme sickness and demise.”

Alas, “there have been too few deaths recorded within the managed trials on the time to reach at such a conclusion,” Demasi writes.9 This statement was made by professor Peter Doshi, affiliate editor of The BMJ, throughout Sen. Ron Johnson’s Knowledgeable Panel on Federal Vaccine Mandates, November 1, 2021.10 Throughout that roundtable dialogue, Doshi said that:

“The trials didn’t present a discount in deaths, even for COVID deaths … Those that claimed the trials confirmed that the vaccines had been extremely efficient in saving lives had been mistaken. The trials didn’t reveal this.”

Certainly, the six-month follow-up of Pfizer’s trial confirmed 15 deaths within the vaccine group and 14 deaths within the placebo group. Then, through the open label part, after Pfizer determined to get rid of the placebo group by providing the precise shot to everybody who wished it, one other 5 deaths occurred within the vaccine group.

Two of these 5 had initially been within the placebo group, and had taken the shot within the open label part. So, in the long run, what now we have are 20 deaths within the vaccine group, in comparison with 14 within the placebo group. We even have the suspicious proven fact that two of the placebo individuals out of the blue died after getting the true deal.

How You Specific Impact Measurement Issues

As famous in a July 2021 Lancet paper,11 “absolutely understanding the efficacy and effectiveness of vaccines is much less simple than it may appear. Relying on how the impact measurement is expressed, a fairly completely different image would possibly emerge.”

The authors level out that the relative danger discount actually must “be seen towards the background danger of being contaminated and changing into in poor health with COVID-19, which varies between populations and over time.” That is why absolutely the danger discount determine is so vital:12

“Though the RRR considers solely individuals who may benefit from the vaccine, absolutely the danger discount (ARR), which is the distinction between assault charges with and with out a vaccine, considers the entire inhabitants …

ARR can be used to derive an estimate of vaccine effectiveness, which is the quantity wanted to vaccinate (NNV) to forestall yet one more case of COVID-19 as 1/ARR. NNVs convey a distinct perspective: 81 for the Moderna–NIH, 78 for the AstraZeneca–Oxford … 84 for the J&J, and 119 for the Pfizer–BioNTech vaccines.

The reason lies within the mixture of vaccine efficacy and completely different background dangers of COVID-19 throughout research: 0.9% for the Pfizer–BioNTech … 1.4% for the Moderna–NIH, 1.8% for the J&J, and 1.9% for the AstraZeneca–Oxford vaccines.

ARR (and NNV) are delicate to background danger — the upper the danger, the upper the effectiveness — as exemplified by the analyses of the J&J’s vaccine on centrally confirmed circumstances in contrast with all circumstances: each the numerator and denominator change, RRR doesn’t change (66–67%), however the one-third enhance in assault charges within the unvaccinated group (from 1.8% to 2.4%) interprets in a one-fourth lower in NNV (from 84 to 64) …

With the usage of solely RRRs, and omitting ARRs, reporting bias is launched, which impacts the interpretation of vaccine efficacy.

When speaking about vaccine efficacy, particularly for public well being selections corresponding to selecting the kind of vaccines to buy and deploy, having a full image of what the information really present is vital, and making certain comparisons are primarily based on the mixed proof that places vaccine trial ends in context and never simply taking a look at one abstract measure, can be vital.”

The authors go on to emphasize that evaluating the effectiveness of the COVID pictures is additional hampered by the truth that they use quite a lot of completely different research protocols, together with completely different placebos. They even differ of their major endpoint, i.e., what they contemplate a COVID case, and the way and when analysis is made, and extra.

“We’re left with the unanswered query as as to whether a vaccine with a given efficacy within the research inhabitants could have the identical efficacy in one other inhabitants with completely different ranges of background danger of COVID-19,” the authors notice.

Top-of-the-line real-world examples of that is Israel, the place the relative danger discount was 94% on the outset and an absolute danger discount of 0.46%, which interprets into an NNV of 217. Within the Part 3 Pfizer trial, absolutely the danger discount was 0.84% and the NNV 119.13 As famous by the authors:14

“This implies in a real-life setting, 1.8 instances extra topics would possibly have to be vaccinated to forestall yet one more case of COVID-19 than predicted within the corresponding scientific trial.”

SARS-CoV-2 Particular Antibodies Pose Hazard for the Overweight

In associated information, a current research15 printed within the Worldwide Journal of Weight problems warns that “nearly all of SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies in COVID-19 sufferers with weight problems are autoimmune and never neutralizing.”

In plain English, when you’re overweight, you’re prone to growing autoimmune issues when you get the pure an infection. You’re additionally at larger danger of a critical an infection, because the antibodies your physique produces should not the neutralizing type that kill the virus. As defined by the authors:16

“SARS-CoV-2 an infection induces neutralizing antibodies in all lean however solely in few overweight COVID-19 sufferers. SARS-CoV-2 an infection additionally induces anti-MDA [malondialdehyde, a marker of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation] and anti-AD [adipocyte-derived protein antigens] autoimmune antibodies extra in lean than in overweight sufferers as in comparison with uninfected controls.

Serum ranges of those autoimmune antibodies, nonetheless, are at all times larger in overweight versus lean COVID-19 sufferers. Furthermore … we additionally evaluated the affiliation of anti-MDA and anti-AD antibodies with serum CRP and located a optimistic affiliation between CRP and autoimmune antibodies.

Our outcomes spotlight the significance of evaluating the standard of the antibody response in COVID-19 sufferers with weight problems, significantly the presence of autoimmune antibodies, and determine biomarkers of self-tolerance breakdown. That is essential to guard this weak inhabitants at larger danger of responding poorly to an infection with SARS-CoV-2 than lean controls.”

Now, these findings apply to overweight individuals who develop the pure an infection, however it makes one ponder whether the identical holds true for the COVID jab. If the antibodies produced in response to the precise virus are primarily autoantibodies, will overweight folks develop autoantibodies as an alternative of neutralizing antibodies in response to the COVID shot as properly?

For readability, an autoantibody is an antibody that’s directed towards a number of of your individual physique’s proteins. Many autoimmune illnesses are brought on by autoantibodies that focus on and assault your individual tissues or organs.

So, that is no small concern, seeing how the mRNA within the COVID pictures (and subsequent SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is what your physique produces antibodies towards) will get distributed all through your physique and accumulates in varied organs.17,18

Vermont’s COVID Circumstances Regardless of Highest Vaccination Fee

At this level, there’s an awesome quantity of proof displaying the COVID pictures should not working. What little safety you do get clearly wanes inside a handful of months, and should go away you worse off than you had been earlier than. We’re seeing information to this impact from numerous completely different locations.

Within the U.S., we are able to now have a look at Vermont.19 At almost 72% vaccinated, it has the best price of “absolutely vaccinated” residents within the nation, based on ABC Information,20 but COVID circumstances at the moment are out of the blue surging to new heights.

U.S. Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention information present Vermont had the twelfth highest COVID case price within the nation as of November 9, 2021. Over the earlier seven days, circumstances had elevated by 42%. It couldn’t have been attributable to a surge in testing, although, because the weekly common of exams administered had solely elevated by 9% in that point.

What’s extra, throughout that first week of November, the hospital admission price for sufferers who had been absolutely vaccinated elevated by 8%, whereas the admission price for individuals who weren’t absolutely vaccinated really decreased by 15%.

Needless to say you’re not thought-about “absolutely vaccinated” till two weeks after your second injection. For those who obtained your second dose per week in the past and find yourself within the hospital with COVID signs, you’re counted as unvaccinated. This gross manipulation of actuality makes it very tough to interpret the information, however even with this manipulation it’s past apparent that the vaccines are failing.

Total, the case price in Vermont is FAR larger now than it as within the fall of 2020, when nobody had gotten the “vaccine.” In line with Vermont well being commissioner Dr. Mark Levine, the surge is going on primarily amongst unvaccinated folks of their 20s and youngsters aged 5 by way of 11 — a curious coincidence, seeing how the pictures are simply now being rolled out for 5- to 11-year-olds.

Levine blames the surge on the extremely infectious delta variant, however delta has been round for months already. The primary case of delta in Vermont was recognized in mid-Might 2021.21 Absolutely, it wouldn’t have taken six months for this most-infectious of variants to make the rounds and trigger an unprecedented spike?

Two clues are given by Levine, nonetheless, when he admits {that a}) Vermont has one of many lowest charges of pure immunity within the U.S. and b) safety is waning amongst those that obtained the COVID shot early to mid-year. Breakthrough circumstances among the many absolutely vaccinated shot up 31% through the first week of November.22

Totally Vaxxed Are 9 Occasions Extra Probably To Be Hospitalized

Coincidentally, information from doctor assistant Deborah Conrad, introduced by legal professional Aaron Siri23 October 17, 2021, reveals vaccinated individuals are 9 instances extra more likely to be hospitalized than the unvaccinated.

The important thing, nonetheless, was in what they counted as vaccinated. Reasonably than solely together with those that had gotten the shot two weeks or extra earlier than being hospitalized, they merely counted those that had a number of pictures, no matter when, as vaccinated. This provides us an trustworthy accounting, lastly! As defined by Siri:24

“A involved Doctor Assistant, Deborah Conrad, satisfied her hospital to rigorously monitor the COVID-19 vaccination standing of each affected person admitted to her hospital. The result’s stunning.

As Ms. Conrad has detailed, her hospital serves a group wherein lower than 50% of the people had been vaccinated for COVID-19 however but, throughout the identical time interval, roughly 90% of the people admitted to her hospital had been documented to have obtained this vaccine.

These sufferers had been admitted for quite a lot of causes, together with however not restricted to COVID-19 infections. Much more troubling is that there have been many people who had been younger, many who introduced with uncommon or surprising well being occasions, and plenty of who had been admitted months after vaccination.”

Regardless of these troubling findings, well being authorities ignored Conrad when she reached out. In mid-July 2021, Siri’s legislation agency additionally despatched formal letters to the CDC, the Well being and Human Providers Division and the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration on Conrad’s behalf,25 and people had been ignored as properly.

“This once more highlights the significance of by no means allowing authorities coercion and mandates in relation to medical procedures,” Siri writes.26

Now, one of the stunning particulars gleaned from Conrad’s information assortment, which Siri didn’t clarify however Steve Kirsch highlights in a current substack submit is that:27

“The one approach you may get these numbers is that if vaccinated individuals are 9 instances extra more likely to be hospitalized than unvaccinated. It’s mathematically unattainable to get to these numbers another approach. Interval. Full cease. This is called an ‘inconvenient reality.’”

Certainly, the extra information we achieve entry to, the more severe it appears to be like for these COVID pictures. Sadly, those that push them appear hell-bent on ignoring any and all information that don’t assist their stance.

Worse, it appears information and statistics are being deliberately manipulated by our well being authorities to current a false image of security and effectiveness. All such techniques are indefensible at this level, and individuals who imagine the official narrative with out doing their very own analysis achieve this at their very own danger.
