Neville Hodgkinson, the former medical and science correspondent of several national newspapers, including the Sunday Times, Sunday Express and Daily Mail, has been researching and preparing a ‘round-up’ for TCW detailing the scores of indications of harm from the Covid mRNA jabs, from myocarditis, menstrual irregularities and infertility to teen and under-30s deaths and increased rates of cancer. In a series of articles for TCW, he has been focusing on each of these adverse effects and more. You can read his introduction here, his article on heart damage here, his article on fertility issues here and yesterday’s article on Covid infectiousness here. Today, in the concluding article, he focuses on the overwhelming evidence that the Covid jab has become a major health risk.
FROM the start of the Covid pandemic, TCW Defending Freedom repeatedly challenged official responses to the outbreak, arguing that the fearmongering, in particular, was creating rather than resolving the crisis. In so many ways, those challenges are now understood to have been correct. The lockdowns were an enormously costly mistake.
One area where TCW consistently sought to increase concern was the mass rollout of an experimental vaccine. In this series of articles, I have been looking back at warnings of the dangers, and seeing how in most ways those too have turned out to be right.
The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has so far received reports that 2,330 people, including 15 children, have died in the wake of the jab. That may be the tip of an iceberg. The mechanisms behind many of the adverse effects are only gradually being recognised; and it is agonising for doctors to admit they might have caused harm.
More than one and a half million adverse reactions have been reported. The regulators maintain most are mild and short-term, and probably reflect an expected immune response to the jabs. They still say vaccination is the single and most effective way to reduce deaths and severe illness from Covid.
The biggest side-effect category by far, totalling nearly 300,000 reports, is ‘nervous system disorders’, followed by more than 140,000 reports of headaches and migraines. As US critical care physician Dr Paul Marik explains, these neurological events are often far from mild and transitory. They are caused by the spike protein, which he describes as ‘probably one of the most toxic proteins the human body has ever seen’.
This is the now-infamous and complex substance through which a genetically engineered bat virus was turned into the Covid virus, SARS-CoV-2. The jab was designed to make our body cells produce the spike in the hope of enabling the immune system to reduce the impact of the virus when we become infected.
But as spelled out in the first article in this series, the protein is itself a toxin, and capable of amplifying the risk of harm, especially to blood vessels and the nervous system.
‘There have been two independent surveys looking at the vaccine-injured, both in the US and Germany, and over 80 per cent of the adverse events are neurological – which is what makes this such a devastating disease,’ Marik, a former professor of medicine, said in an interview with the US-based Epoch Times.
‘These people are neurologically impaired. The commonest is overwhelming, severe fatigue and tiredness, then brain fog. So it interferes with the ability to think clearly, to do cognitive tasks, to function normally as a human being.
‘Then they get what’s called a peripheral neuropathy, in which they develop antibodies against the nerve fibres. So they get terrible shooting pains, paresthesias (crawling sensation in the skin), numbness in their legs, and terrible burning pains, which can be enormously disabling.
‘We have the myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) – they can’t hide that – particularly affecting young men. And then there are a whole host of other diseases.
‘Patients get severe ringing in the ears, called tinnitus. They get visual problems. They get problems with walking. So it’s a spectrum. There are in fact over 2,000 published, peer-reviewed papers describing different medical conditions associated with the vaccine. But unfortunately the most serious are the neurological, which interfere with people’s ability to work and function normally.’
The risk of illness relates to the amount of spike protein to which the body is exposed. ‘The more spike protein you have, the greater your risk of complications, organ failure, and death,’ Marik said. ‘So, how do you get more spike? The more you’re vaccinated, the more spike. But obviously, if you get Covid and you’re already vaccinated, you get spike some more. So the bottom line is, don’t get vaccinated, avoid getting Covid if you are vaccinated, and if you do get Covid, be treated early, because that limits the load of spike protein.’
The spike protein does a number of ‘horrendous’ things. It is taken up by cells throughout the body, including the brain, heart, and blood vessels, and causes inflammation.
‘If you look at the endothelial cells – the cells lining the blood vessels – they’re absolutely packed with spike protein. So this idea that the spike stays in the arm [the injection site] is false. It causes blood vessels to constrict, and it causes clotting. So it interferes with blood flow, and you have what’s called infarction – it kills the tissue which the blood vessels supply. We know [from brain scans] that people who have been exposed to spike protein have micro-infarcts in their brain.’
The problems do not stop there. Another mechanism of harm outlined by Marik arises from instructions built into the vaccine for the manufacture of two additional foreign proteins, called amyloid and prion. The aim seems to have been to improve the take-up of the jab contents, but both of these proteins carry risks in themselves.
‘People who get the vaccine are at much higher risk of getting prion disease – which is mad cow disease,’ he said. ‘And indeed, there have been many cases of mad cow disease being described.’
Amyloid is an abnormal protein known to cause organ and tissue damage when it builds up in the body. Marik and his co-workers believe it may lie behind the formation of mysterious, long, fibrinous clots found in the bodies of some vaccine victims. ‘What we know about these clots is that they are very resistant to breakdown, and they have amyloid. And this is likely from the amyloid within the spike protein.’
A third mechanism of harm, ‘very common in the vaccine-injured’, is an autoimmune reaction. This arises when at the same time as mounting an immune response against the spike, the body produces antibodies against its own tissues. ‘The host is attacking itself,’ Marik said. ‘You have the spike causing inflammation, the spike causing clotting, the spike causing amyloid and prion disease. And you have the spike causing all of this autoimmune disease. So it’s a total onslaught, from every angle. And that’s just the beginning of what spike does. It seems the more spike you have, the more inflammation you have.’
Even 18 months after either long-lasting Covid, or vaccination, researchers have found that circulating white blood cells still have spike protein within them.
Marik was a founder of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, created by renowned physicians and scholars to help prevent and treat Covid. Its protocols are used by healthcare providers around the world and have helped thousands of people. A post-vaccine treatment protocol can be seen here.
The UK Medical Freedom Alliance (UKMFA), a team of medical professionals, academics, scientists and lawyers with similar concerns, wrote as far back as November 2020 to the then Health Secretary Matt Hancock, along with the MHRA and other government advisers, detailing serious safety and ethical concerns about a rushed rollout of the jabs.
The 14-page, fully referenced letter was ‘a desperate (and failed) attempt to stop them going ahead with the authorisation’, Dr Elizabeth Evans, the group’s director, recalled last month in the Daily Sceptic.
‘Tragically, the vast majority of the medical profession and wider public were deceived by the powerful and incessant Government and media messaging that the vaccines would be our “only way out” and that we should “trust the science”,’ she wrote.
‘It is now clear that most people, including doctors, did no independent research beyond listening to the Government press conferences, the pronouncements of health officials, the Today programme and reading the Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Mail and so on.
‘This failure of due diligence has come at a huge price – to doctors and nurses as individuals and clinicians, to the medical profession as a body, and to the public as a whole. Trust in the medical profession and health bodies has been seriously damaged, as evidence of unprecedented levels of vaccine injury mount and the extravagant claims of 95 per cent or even 100 per cent effectiveness have not been borne out in the real world.
‘Indeed, real world data is repeatedly showing negative effectiveness of the Covid jabs in a matter of weeks – meaning that you are more likely to catch Covid if you are vaccinated than unvaccinated.
‘The UKMFA is calling now for the medical profession, politicians and decision-makers to actively engage with the huge amount of published science and real-world data, and to listen to the multitude of eminent scientists, doctors and independent journalists laying the facts out for easy independent research and understanding.’
A good place to start, Evans said, would be cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra’s two-part paper, Curing the pandemic of misinformation on Covid-19 mRNA vaccines through real evidence-based medicine (reported here and here by TCW), and his call for an immediate and complete suspension of mRNA jabs pending a full investigation into their safety.
She concluded: ‘As a society, we now have an opportunity and responsibility to change course, to start to put things right and to hold accountable those people who failed in their duties and responsibilities to protect the public, so that this can never happen again.’
