Why is the number of myocarditis increasing in Europe?


This is part 3 in a series on unreported Covid truths. Read part 1 and Part 2.

As a truth-seeking journalist, I’ve covered unreported stories – whether it’s about increasing minority success, the deadly consequences of under-resource police departments, and revolutionary psychedelic therapies – since the beginning of my career in 2019.

Consciously or not, my mission has been to focus on injustices, authoritarian government control, societal neglect and institutional corruption where no one is looking.

Since the start of the pandemic, I have hardly been interested in journalistic interest in the endless waves, political changes, and government restrictions on Covid. Enough journalists on both sides seem to cover this issue.

But with regard to the specific issue of vaccine-induced myocarditis, I see nothing but misinformation in the media. As a young man of 20 years, this problem affects me personally, as the demographic that is overwhelmingly affected by adverse vaccine effects is young men under 25.

For all the basics about this vaccine side effect (frequency, severity, and biology), read my viral essay on “The Truth About Vaccine-Induced Myocarditis.”


I have been trying to find national rates of myocarditis in Canada or the US for several weeks but have not been able to find a reliable dataset. However, I came across two countries that seem to be following this issue closely: Germany and France.

The results are judgmental.

First take a look at Germany:

Since vaccines became widespread last year, the number of myocarditis has increased by more than 75 percent.

One could say, “Covid causes myocarditis. That’s what can explain the increase.”

Except, myocarditis cases dropped at the onset of the Covid pandemic (January 2020) and continued to decline for a few months thereafter (May-Sept. 2020).

What happened in the middle of last year that could have resulted in a large increase in myocarditis cases?

Perhaps the widespread administration of a medical intervention that causes a significant number of cases of myocarditis (in specific demographics)?

Maybe Germany is just an outlier and I’m pointless. Look at France:

In 2021, myocarditis cases increased by 31 percent – the highest in several years.

The orange and the red code are both for myocarditis (the red is for myocarditis cases that are unspecified).

Again, every time you pick up myocarditis from the vaccine, opponents reflexively counteract that Covid also causes myocarditis.

However, as this bar chart shows, myocarditis cases decreased in the first year of the pandemic.

They only increased in 2021, the year vaccines were rolled out to the public.

It is impossible to prove with 100 percent certainty, but these data strongly indicate that mass vaccination in these European nations has led to an increasing incidence of myocarditis (cases are almost certainly concentrated in young men under 40 years of age).

Just to be clear, this is not a case against vaccination. Vaccines continue to provide robust protection against serious illness and death. For those in their senior year and those who have underlying health conditions, vaccination is rightly recommended.

There’s some debate there.

But among young men, the vaccine-induced myocarditis signal is indisputable. And according to the best available evidence, it occurs with a HIGHER frequency than infection-induced myocarditis in that age / gender demographic.

As a robust analysis by Oxford researchers found last month, Pfizer doses 2 & 3 and Moderna doses 1 & 2 are associated with post-vaccine myocarditis rates exceeding the frequency of infection-induced myocarditis in men under 40.

As Dr. Vinay Prasad has stated that the risk of myocarditis can be reduced by offering only one vaccine dose to this demographic group and limiting the use of Moderna, as many countries have done. Some evidence also indicates that adequate spacing between two doses of vaccine may also reduce the risk of myocarditis.

Failure to take these measures and blindly promote universal vaccination will lead to many more healthy young men suffering from a heart disease that can be completely avoided.

Myocarditis is a non-serious, minor condition?

For critics who think myocarditis is not a big deal and most cases are “mild”, consider a TYPICAL case of myocarditis (whatever the cause):

1) 3-6 months of limited physical activity. No sports or athletic competition. Even carrying heavy textbooks and climbing stairs may be prohibited.

2) Being put on medications such as beta blockers or ACE inhibitors that may have negative side effects.

3) Scars in the heart region visible on an MRI scan.

4) Lifelong risk of heart complications.

So yes, most cases of myocarditis from the vaccine will be relatively “mild” compared to a “severe” case (heart failure or death) – just as chronic depression is relatively “mild” compared to schizophrenia.

This does not mean that the former is trivial or should be trivialized in the way that public health authorities and the entire mainstream media do (largely because Joe Rogan has sounded the alarm correctly).

More professional football players with heart disease

A deeply alarming trend in recent months is the increase in the number of professional European footballers being diagnosed with myocarditis and other heart diseases. Three recent examples from January ONLY:

1) The 21-year-old Canadian soccer star (playing in Germany) Alphonso Davies (funny fact: I went to school with his girlfriend Jordyn Huitema, also a professional soccer player playing in Paris).

Davies has been ruled out “for some time” by Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann after myocarditis was discovered in medical tests he underwent following his recent Covid infection.

2) Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Two weeks ago, Aubameyang was bizarrely diagnosed with “heart lesions” after recovering from Covid-19.

3) Sunderland goalkeeper Lee Burge

Burge is out of action for at least four to five weeks after being diagnosed with myocarditis following a Covid infection.

“It seems to happen a lot after these injections or potentially Covid, I’m not sure exactly what it is [that causes the condition]”Sunderland manager Lee Johnson told the BBC.

These players add to the list of elite, world-renowned footballers – Sergio Agüero (Barcelona), Victor Lindelöf, Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich) among others – who suffer from heart disease.

I spoke to a top cardiologist based in the Bay area (who would like to remain anonymous for the safety of his career) about these cases and he thinks they are probably caused by the vaccine given the clear signal in the data.

Yes, these cases were identified after Covid infections, but that does not mean that the infection caused it.

It is highly unlikely that Covid infection is the main cause because vaccination effectively slows down more severe Covid outcomes (such as myocarditis) and each of these players is vaccinated. Moreover, these are incredibly healthy and fit athletes at a young age, who are naturally well protected against severe Covid disease and its associated symptoms such as myocarditis.

Myocarditis from Covid is already rare – and extremely rare in young, healthy, double-vaccinated people. Not to mention in professional athletes whose diet, exercise and recovery are closely monitored.

As this cardiologist speculated, these athletes probably had some heart inflammation after vaccination, which was not detected because the symptoms were not prominent enough (these are all the mildest of the mildest cases). And when they got over Covid, they underwent a rigorous medical examination and myocarditis was identified.

Now, this is only a hypothesis, and there is no definitive evidence, but it is convincing, and I am inclined to agree with this expert cardiologist’s analysis.

Covid just does not cause heart inflammation in healthy young people (regardless of extreme cases where the young people have other serious comorbidities).

There has been no formal, peer-reviewed study of this new phenomenon, but I came across a compelling analysis of heart-related injuries shared by British commentator Maajid Nawaz. The results were overwhelming:

“In the other years beyond 2021, there were a total of 89,217 injuries, of which 100 were heart disease (0.11%). And in 2021, there were 19912 injuries with 44 heart disease (0.22%). This is an increase of 100 percent in the number of heart-related conditions. “

I will continue to monitor this ongoing trend in professional football (the most watched sport with high endurance), but the more I look, the more I will look away.

The media will continue to mislead, obscure and cover up the public health institute.

This platform will be one of many shrines where the truth will be fearlessly pursued and shared with you all.
