A study of 566 patients published Nov. 8 by the American Heart Association concludes the Moderna and Pfizer MRNA Covid-19 vaccines increase the likelihood of Acute Coronary Syndrome from 11% to 25% over five years.
The abstract of the study by Dr. Steven Gundry is posted on Circulation, an American Heart Association medical journal. The study provoked quick pushback. Circulation last week posted an ‘expression of concern’ that the study lacked sufficient data and statistical analysis. A Reuters fact-checking article also criticized the study for lacking peer review.
Gundry is a former cardiothoracic surgeon and dietary expert who operates his own clinic. He said patients’ PULS scores – a measurement of heart disease, the higher the number the worse the heart’s condition – went up dramatically after vaccination.
“The score has been measured every 3-6 months in our patient population for 8 years,” Gundry writes. “Recently, with the advent of the mRNA COVID 19 vaccines (vac) by Moderna and Pfizer, dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients.”
In particular, “the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”
These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, the changes had persisted for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vaccination.
