Steven Gundry MD, renowned cardiac surgeon, known more by the public for his dietary advice to avoid toxic lectins in foods and his book entitled THE PLANT PARADOX, has issued a precautionary red flag for Covid-19-vaccinated patients and those still considering vaccination, given that a sophisticated prognostic test used by his medical group indicates Covid-19 RNA vaccines increase the 5-year risk of the most feared type of acute heart attack from 11% to 25%!
Dr. Gundry reports his medical group has conducted the highly predictive PULS biomarker test on 566 patients. The PULS test generates a score predicting the 5-year risk (percentage of chance) of a new Acute Coronary Syndrome, defined as a range of conditions that are associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart most often caused by a plaque rupture or clot formation in the heart’s arteries.
The PULS cardiac test assesses parameters such as inflammation (interleukin-16 or IL-16), cell death (Fas cell apoptosis), HGF (Hepatocyte Growth Factor or HGF that gauges the movement of T-cells—a type of white blood cells generated by the thymus gland). This score is usually assessed every 3-6 months among at-risk patients. This data may explain the observed heart problems following Covid-19 vaccination.
PULS TEST: Increase in cardiac risks with RNA Covid—19 Vaccination
Inflammation (IL-16): rose from 35 to 82 Cell death (apoptosis Fas): rose from 22 to 46 HGF (T-cell movement): rose from 42 to 86
The overall PULS score rose from 11% five-year risk to 25% five-year risk!
Dr. Gundry indicates an ominous change in these PULS scores was first noted with the advent of RNA Covid-19 vaccines. These changes were seen in most vaccinated subjects, his report notes.
The PULS test actually measures nine different parameters, in particular the immune response which is activated in response to coronary artery injury.
Unstable cardiac lesions are reported to cause 75% of all heart attacks. A rupture is the most common cause of acute heart attacks. These unstable lesions in a coronary artery may also lead to heart failure and blood clotting (thrombosis) and may account for these very same problems noted among vaccinated individuals.
Denials by public health authorities
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) concedes inflammation (myocarditis) of the heart muscle and inflammation of the lining that surrounds the heart (pericarditis) occur after Covid-19 vaccination. According to the CDC these adverse events occur more often after the 2nd dose and within a week of vaccination. Chest pain, shortness of breath and feeling the heart is beating overly fast are symptoms. The CDC maintains the known risks of Covid-19 illness “far outweigh” the potential risk of having a “rare adverse reaction” like myocarditis/pericarditis.
According to a review of 2.5 million mRNA vaccinated subjects age 16 and older in Israel, 54 cases of myocarditis (2.13 cases per 100,000 vaccinated persons) were reported. Reviewers claim most cases of carditis are mild and rare, and “benefits of Covid-19 vaccine greatly outweigh the risks.” The Myocarditis Foundation also brushes off cases of myocarditis following vaccination, classifying them as “rare.”
These denials were issued prior to publication of Dr. Gundry’s report.
Contrary data; why vaccinate at all?
