The Lancet Neurology Commission report predicts a significant increase in strokes, projecting a 50% rise by 2050, which would bring the global total to 9.7 million deaths annually.
The primary driver of this surge is high blood pressure, while younger populations may see a rise due to increasing rates of diabetes and obesity. These factors are already known to be leading causes of stroke.
Despite the comprehensive Lancet report, there’s a notable absence of any mention linking mRNA vaccines to stroke. This is surprising given the widespread knowledge of this potential association. Dr. Angus Dalgleish has previously highlighted the risk of blood clot-related strokes from mRNA vaccines and suggested a ban on their use. However, the Lancet report doesn’t address this concern.
The omission of the potential connection between mRNA vaccines and stroke is a significant oversight in the Lancet report. Numerous sources, including in BMJ Case Reports, medRxiv, Stroke, Medical News Today, Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease and even in Lancet eClinical Medicine, have reported on this link.
As mRNA vaccines continue to be developed for various diseases, including flu, their usage might become even more prevalent. This raises questions about the potential risks associated with their widespread administration.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent global response have also played a role in the anticipated rise in strokes. Lockdown measures led to reduced physical activity, increased alcohol consumption, and elevated levels of obesity, all of which contribute to stroke risk.
While lockdowns may have eased in some places, the psychological impact persists, with many people still experiencing confinement-related depression. Additionally, the shift towards remote work, which shows no signs of slowing down, is known to be a contributing factor to obesity.
Another consequence of lockdowns was restricted access to healthcare, including life-saving drugs for cardiovascular diseases. Even Chris Whitty, a prominent advocate for lockdowns and COVID-19 vaccines, acknowledged in 2022 that there were adverse effects due to limited access to crucial medications.
This raises questions about why this potential consequence wasn’t addressed earlier, particularly in 2020 and 2021 when lockdown measures were at their height. Despite this, Whitty was knighted in 2022, which has raised eyebrows in some quarters.
