Myocarditis NOT caused by Covid. So what IS causing it?…

In this video, Dr. John Campbell does a great job of “staying inside the YouTube Thought Jail” while doing the “nudge nudge wink wink” pointing you at the real cause of the rising carditis problems.

Seems there’s been a study done in Israel with a huge number of folks in each group. One set who had Covid, the other who did not: and they all were not vaxxed. The rates of myocarditis and pericarditis were substantially the same. This was done using data from before vaccinations began.

So Covid-19 infection is NOT causing increased cases of myocarditis or pericarditis.

Which leaves hanging the question of just what has been causing it in the time period after vaccination began. Clearly there is an utter mystery about just what changed when vaccinations were started. Could be anything, anything at all… Diet changes. Lockdown consequences. Perpetual mask wearing. Lack of exercise. Watching TV. Skipping Dr. visits (other than the one to get The Jab, of course). The list of potential causes is long and varied…

Covid infection did not increase incidence of post-covid myocarditis or pericarditis.

The Incidence of Myocarditis and Pericarditis in Post COVID-19 Unvaccinated Patients-A Large Population-Based Study

Myocarditis and pericarditis, post-acute cardiac sequelae of COVID-19 infection, arising from adaptive immune responses.

March 2020 to January 2021

Inpatient myocarditis and pericarditis diagnoses, from day 10 after positive PCR

Israeli vaccination program initiated on 20 December 2020

Follow-up was censored on 28 February 2021

Control cohort, never infected

N = 590,976 adults,

with at least one negative PCR and no positive PCR

Median, 4.1 months

Covid cohort, 700,040 person-months

Non covid cohort, 2,100,077 person-months


Post COVID-19 infection was not associated with myocarditis (aHR 1.08)

Post COVID-19 infection was not associated with pericarditis (aHR 0.53)

We did not observe an increased incidence of neither pericarditis nor myocarditis in adult patients recovering from COVID-19 infection.

Our data suggest that there is no increase in the incidence of myocarditis and pericarditis in COVID-19 recovered patients, compared to uninfected matched controls.

  1. jim2 says:

    This is the kind of studies we need and is indeed bad for the vaccine. And this is good news. Thanks for the video.

  2. cdquarles says:

    Hmm, well, it is no surprise to me that the myocarditis and pericarditis rates are small and near baseline. Discount the statistics, though, given the small numbers of affected patients within the much larger groups, since they don’t seem to be in predictive form and the limitations of PCR methods were not addressed. I did not see any mention of positive or negative predictive values for the PCR tests (thus, over certain). Within its limits, this study is useful:

  3. The True Nolan says:

    Here is one possible reason for the very slight increase in pericarditis among non-covid people (and yes, it might just be random chance). People who caught covid and who already had pericarditis or a propensity to it, may have died at a slightly higher rate. Thus, the I-caught-covid group already had their pericarditis numbers whittled down.

  5. David A says:

    And, as several studies directly implicate the vaccines, this is indeed damning for the vaccines.

  6. David A says:

    RDS, thank you for the link.
    That is the best presentation of vaccine harm pathology I have read. In combination with the study of this post, ( It is likely that it is not Covid producing the elevated harms) and numerous studies showing the potential for vaccine induced harm in EVERY vaccinated person and elevated harms and mortality in increased all cause mortality from many heavily vaccinated nations, and those harms happen to correlate with those SAME harms from VAERS, the path to proving the vaccines culpable is, despite massive systemic government funded resistance, becoming rock solid along many lines.

    This quote from the link is likely a legal path for prosecution showing willful neglect.
    “In short, wherever the brown pigment is deposited, the original antigen—in this example, the spike protein—must have been present. Immunohistochemistry is widely used not only in clinical pathology but also in research; it could readily have been used to detect widespread expression of spike protein in animal trials during preclinical development. However, it appears that the FDA and other regulators never received or demanded such experimental data [6].”

  7. rhoda klapp says:

    Dr John’s latest innocent straight-faced tongue in cheek take on funding of regulatory bodies for medicine.

    They’ll come for him some day and his total absence of overt ‘misinformation’ won’t help.

  8. The True Nolan says:

    @RDS and David A: Yes, EXCELLENT link to a good summary. That last quote “However, it appears that the FDA and other regulators never received or demanded such experimental data [6].” is important. Those of us who attempt to think rationally and logically tend to say, “as long as there has not been a study, we cannot have an opinion on what the study would conclude”. This is not quite correct. The fact that such studies have NOT been done, is of itself a kind of data, or metadata, if you wish. When the institutions who have the assets and data to perform a very reasonable, relatively simple, and logically necessary study, one which could potentially either support their position or indict their actions, BUT ACTIVELY WORK TO PREVENT SUCH STUDIES, then any reasonable observer would conclude that the studies are likely to be damning. Also, it is likely that the people involved KNOW it would be damning.

    Judicial Watch Sues for Records on COVID Vaccine Safety Studies

    Why is the Biden administration hiding information about the safety of the vaccine it is so aggressively pushing on everyone?

    We filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for records on COVID-19 vaccine safety studies (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:22-cv-03153)).

    We sued in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (a component of HHS) inadequately responded to a June 1, 2022, FOIA request for:

  10. David A says:

    @ TTN… Re… “BUT ACTIVELY WORK TO PREVENT SUCH STUDIES, then any reasonable observer would conclude that the studies are likely to be damning. Also, it is likely that the people involved KNOW it would be damning.”

    Précisément. And the list of such negative indications is so very very long.
    Why was natural immunity NEVER considered. (Especially as a KNOWN primary concern of vaccination is OAS.)
    Why were very effective prophylactic treatment ignored, suppressed, systemically ridiculed, and in cases made illegal.
    Why was the Covid PCR test run at such extreme cycles?
    Why were the positive results at high cycles not retested?
    Why were people NOT informed of what cycle they tested positive at?
    Why were hospitals so quick to go to ventilators, with dismal results?
    Why was the very successful treatment of the elderly in a nursing home ignored? (Despite a formal paper being published on those results?
    Why were people with positive tests AND symptoms, sent home with ZERO treatments, and told to come back when their breathing became very labored?
    Why were other harmful ineffective treatments sanctioned, demanded, and performed by the hospitals?
    Why were hospitals financially rewarded for failure?
    Why is the VAERS ignored?
    Why are autopsies suppressed?
    Why was the control group from the pharmaceutical vaccine studies removed, and existing control cohorts are not compared to the vaccinated for abnormal increases in morbidity and mortality?
    Why were masks, known to be very ineffective, and known to be harmful as used, demanded?
    Many more ?s actually, but the evening is growing late.

    Most every action taken was fatal or harmful to health, harmful to the economy, extremely financially beneficial for many insiders, and likely to put tremendous stress on nations and potentiate wars.

  11. The True Nolan says:

    @David A: “Most every action taken was fatal or harmful to health, harmful to the economy, extremely financially beneficial for many insiders, and likely to put tremendous stress on nations and potentiate wars.”

    Yes, exactly, that is a pretty good list. Remember also that this is not the first time humans have ever gotten sick. Illness and medical care both have a long history, a history which was seemingly ignored. Numerous perfectly good, well known, time tested, treatments for respiratory problems and viral illnesses were ignored or even forbidden. How many patients early in their infection were told by doctors, “there is nothing we can do for you. We don’t have any treatment for this. Go home, just wait it out and if you get so bad you can’t breath, then come back.” Patients were actively denied treatment, and when they finally got critical, they were given drugs (Remdesivir) KNOWN to be dangerous and even deadly.

    This is not ignorance, this is not mere misfeasance, this is not even malfeasance. This is murder. More accurately, this is genocide.

    (Side note. I will be out of town and have minimal internet access for the next week or so. Pardon any prolonged absence or delayed replies.)

Younger (than me) and fitter (they run a winery with vines so outdoor a lot) and was told that despite Covid “vaccines” they both had had 2 bouts of Covid. They were astounded when I told them I had not had any shots nor any trace of Covid.

    another ian,

    That’s a dog. (never trust a cat for health care advice … but you can sometimes depend on your dog)

  16. jim2 says:

    Here is a rebuttal to the Israeli COVID study.

  17. The True Nolan says:

    I just had an odd thought, and maybe it is so very obvious that I am the last person here to think of it…

    We all know that many of the major search engines tailor search results to match previous searches and responses. If you are a person who often clicks on links about dogs, or frogs, or logs, then you will get a larger than average number of search responses that link to articles about dogs and frogs and logs. That fact is old news, and one of the reasons why our society is so very polarized these days, since it reinforces any preexisting biases. We all know that such algorithms are in common use, and (hopefully!) take steps to resist them.

    But consider this: What if the various Representatives, Parliament Members, Senators, Governors, etc., really, really, believe all the various BLM, COVID, trans-agenda stuff, because they SPECIFICALLY (and their staff) have been targeted. Imagine some Three Letter Agency that wants to control your local Congressional Representative. The TLA checks to see who in your area shows any signs of running for office, and especially any with signs of potentially being elected. The TLA, via whatever control of search engines they may have, or even through direct hacking of office computers, puts only the information THEY WISH before political office holders. Of course the politician’s staff get the same treatment. Any subject which comes up, whether illegal immigration, trans-what-ever, Black crime rates, police unjustified shootings, Ukraine, whatever — ALL online content the politician will hear is filtered through the TLA. Heck, spend a few extra dollars (they are free, after all) and have a dedicated half dozen or so workers for each politician — filtering information, creating web entries from whole cloth, assiduously stopping any links which might contradict the TLA designs. As for the workers (the politicians too!), they can be anywhere. USA, Israel, Russia, China, Mexico — big deal, it doesn’t matter.

    Yes, corrupt politicians exist. Yes, blackmail really happens. Yes, psychopaths get elected. But what if they are the minority? What if your average politician really, really believes all the manure he or she spouts? What if he sincerely legislates because he is NOT a free agent, but is a mind controlled puppet, a victim of his own limited information? What if he is a puppet who doesn’t even know he is a puppet?

  18. YMMV says:

    jim2: “Here is a rebuttal to the Israeli COVID study”

    I started to watch that video, but I gave up quickly. So much hand waving!
    (people do like to wave their hands while they talk; she takes it to the limit).
    (she even comments on that, see 20:18 in her video)

    It looks more like a debunker video (“Back to the Science”), so tell me if I gave up to early. Her title is “Dr John Campbell resurrects old Israeli myocarditis study to misinform”.
    Misinform, that’s a hot button right there.
    “old Israeli myocarditis study”. published 2022 Apr 15 in J Clin Med. That’s old?

    She does not link to Dr. Campbell’s video; that’s a scientific failure.

    Any study has its faults, so she attacks Dr. Campbell? I don’t trust her.

  19. YMMV says:

    I should have looked at this before. “Back to the Science” is an anti-Dr.Campbell YouTube channel. Definitely a debunker.

  20. jim2 says:

    I expected some blow-back. But posted it to see what you guys thought. It does seem odd that “viral myocarditis” wouldn’t be included. Also, I didn’t read the study that closely. So, just throwing it out there.

  21. Power Grab says:

    @ YMMV re:
    “I started to watch that video, but I gave up quickly. So much hand waving!
    (people do like to wave their hands while they talk; she takes it to the limit).
    (she even comments on that, see 20:18 in her video)”

    I agree. Her hand waving was definitely a distraction. I believe it was done as an annoyance deliberately because it would lead to more comments from viewers, even though they might be negative. She even mentioned that.

    The thing I found most valuable in her video was the screen where she listed the various kinds of myocarditis and pericarditis.

    I also believe she was wearing a black wig. And her smile was overdone.

    I found no value in her judgmental comments about the good doctor.

  22. The True Nolan says:

    Excellent interview with funeral director John O’Looney and two other morticians, all of whom are reporting the post-mortem white fibrous clots among vaxxed deceased. Warning! Some video sequences not for the queasy.

  23. The True Nolan says:

    I try to read articles on multiple sides of any issue, including the pro-mRNA-vaxx vs the anti-mRNA-vaxx. The following linked short article is just over a year old, but even then the facts were relatively obvious. It is so full of logical errors, factual errors, strawman arguments, false dichotomies, and begging the question that I am stunned. Let us not forget that THIS is how those of us simply seeking the truth were portrayed in major publications only a year ago. This piece of propaganda may qualify for some sort of award:

    Wow! Talk about near-instant karma. The guy who wrote the article linked above died of cancer yesterday.

    I usually get a flu shot in October. I waited until last week. In the meantime, the feminine unit went to a crafts show a few days ago and came down ill. Today, it hit me. We went to a doc-in-the-box and have it. It’s no fun.

    They gave both of us Tamiflu, so here’s hoping to better daze soon.

  29. The True Nolan says:

    @jim2 Get well quickly, jim2! There was some flu bug going around here recently and it was a nasty one. First time in several years I have been sick and probably the worst I have had since 2009. Nyquil is your friend!

  30. beththeserf says:

    @ jim 2, speedy recovery.

  31. jim2 says:

    Thanks, all.

  32. cdquarles says:

    Flu hit us hard early this year, as well (following the early freeze?). I do not generally get flu shots each year. I wait to see which strain(s) will be dominant locally and get one if the shot covers those. It tends to be several years between them for me. With them pushing multiples this year, that is, flu plus covid; I’m avoiding them, too.

  33. jim2 says:

    I had the high dose quadravalent flu shot a 4 or 5 days before I got the flu. It didn’t have covid vaccine and didn’t have time to train my immune system. I haven’t had the flu in years and always get a flu shot.

    My wife had gotten symptoms a few days before me. When I developed pronounced symptoms, we both went to a doc-in-the-box. She tested positive for flu, I didn’t but they surmised from my symptoms I had it. They gave us both Tamiflu.

    So I started on it the first day I got pronounced symptoms, which was Saturday. I had a bad couple of days, but now, three days after starting Tamiflu, I am feeling much better. My wife is also feeling much better.

    Tamiflu works by hobbling one of the flu virus’ enzymes needed for replication. I don’t need a 3 year clinical trial to tell you it works.

    So, IMO, this is one higher-tech drug that works safely.

  34. cdquarles says:

    Tamiflu has been known for, what, 20 or so years now. It was spotted by observation, if I am not mistaken. The drug was being used for other purposes and folks noticed that people who were taking it didn’t get flu as much as others. *Then* they tested it on influenza. Imagine that. Just what they *didn’t* want to hear about ivermectin nor hydroxychloroquine back when that may have made a difference early on.

  35. cdquarles says:

    Oh, lest I forget. 45 years ago, we didn’t have *any* known anti-virals if I am not mistaken. It was HIV/AIDS that pushed work on that. For viruses, it was traditional vaccines or treating symptoms hoping you got over them without getting secondary bacterial infections that overwhelmed you (the fringe that had immune systems that were too defective generally didn’t live past infancy).

  36. David A says:

    CDquarles, I am curious of your thoughts about how this study, that indicates about 16 times the incidence or risk of myocarditis among those with Covid, versus those without, compares with the Israeli study referenced in this post. They appear highly contradictory? Your consideration appreciated.

  37. YMMV says:

    @David A, the paper you cite says this: “To minimize potential bias from vaccine-associated myocarditis, 277,892 patients with a COVID-19 vaccination record in PHD-SR during December 2020–February 2021 were excluded.”

    Minimizing the potential bias is a good thing. Covid can cause heart problems. The vaccine can cause heart problems. No surprise there, because they both have the spike protein, the suspected villain. To the same extent? I don’t know. What about Covid/Vaccine team effort? Both worse than either one? Worth checking?

    “Among patients with myocarditis, 2,116 (41.7%) had a history of COVID-19”

    That sounds impressive, but take any other disease, what would that number be?
    ~Among patients with sore feet, XX% had a history of Covid-19~

    Now that Covid is endemic, what does that mean?

    Highly contradictory? not necessarily.

    What I would have liked to have seen in this paper is an effort to deal with the different strengths of Covid. Wuhan was a whopper compared to Omicron. Does Omicron have the same myocarditis issues? It seems to be milder in everything else.

    The present study supports this recommendation by providing evidence of an elevated risk for myocarditis among persons of all ages with diagnosed COVID-19

    Since the study did not deal with jab induced myocarditis, and did not evaluate risk of myocarditis from the current Covid virus, I doubt that conclusion is justified.
    In my opinion …

  38. AC Osborn says:

    David A says: 29 November 2022 at 5:30 am
    If you open the pdf document, note the Autors and there reference numbers you will that the majority are the same as this guy “Tegan K. Boehmer, PhD1”.
    Scroll to the bottom to see that the 1 being the CDC COVID-19 Response Team.
    Also note that the Acknowledgements are also mostly to the same “CDC COVID-19 Response Team”.

    Why would we believe anything at all that comes out of the CDC who are busily trying to hide both Heart and Cancer issues with the Vaccines?

  39. cdquarles says:

    One issue is what diagnostic tests (and their positive predictive values) were used to determine actual cases. Did they culture all of those patients? No? What fraction were cultured? PCR tests are not diagnostic tests. They are screening tests, so if PCR tests were used, what were the false negative and false positive rates (confirmed by culturing) and what cycle counts were used as thresholds.

    I would say that the conclusions were not logically justified. Recall, though, that this paper dealt with folks seen early on and mostly before the transposon injections were widely available. Those they excluded naturally were folks seen later in the period studied than those seen early. There is a bias right there, that to me, puts the conclusion on shaky ground. Heh, their own stated study limitations do that, too. They did ICD9/10 chart reviews, basically.

  40. David A says:

    CDquarles says, “They did ICD9/10 chart reviews, basically.” Not certain what that means. I am going to do a deeper dive, look into this versus the main study of this post, and compare it to the study that found some evidence of heart damage in almost all vaccinated.

    In the mean time some updates on the home front. I wont share our hospital, but it is a major one, and a good one. So far my wife’s heart looks good, a lot more testing to come. We went in when she woke up deaf in one ear. They are doing a lot, one of three surgeries, plus immediate strong medications. Everybody’s kind thoughts and prayers appreciated.

    I tested positive the day after Thanksgiving. Mainly sore painful sinus for two days, arm numbness (when active) and general weakness for two days, and mild sinus reaction continuing and some chest congestion, I cough, clear music, and feel like I have complet lung capacity, repeat about five times a day. It is all starting to clear and I am starting to get energy back. At night I feel a peculiar gentle buzz in my body, chest, arms, a weird sensation, like an awareness of something in my system that is being fought. It is weird and novel to me, like nothing I have experienced before.

    Now the interesting non personal part. The latest Omnicrom is VERY VERY contagious, and they are NOT testing. Almost Nobody apparently, vaccinated or previously infected, is showing immunity. Yet they are not testing! They apparently do NOT want to know how many vaccinated are infected. I cannot think of any other reason. They did not question her about covid, or test her in the hospital. A doctor privately told her that it is hitting big time. Another doctor said we are basically not talking about Covid, and told her “privately” this (the sudden hearing loss) is very likely Covid related. However on hospital paperwork it is NOT being assigned to Covid. They never asked her if she was vaccinated. Their outside testing area is closed. AFAICT, they are burying the trail of the many many Covid side effects from Covid, which in effect is burying the vaccine failure.

  41. The True Nolan says:

    @David A: “The latest Omnicrom is VERY VERY contagious, and they are NOT testing.”

    First of all, best wishes and prayers to yourself and your wife. May you both be restored to complete good health quickly.

    Not sure if it is a COVID variant or some other flu, but my wife and I both caught the crud about a month ago. I think it was just flu, but it was as bad an infectious illness as I have had since flu in 2009. Very uncomfortable but resolved in a week or so. However, there have been a LOT of people in my area (Ozarks) fighting it recently. Most of my neighbors (and we are all in the 60 years and plus range) and a large number of younger people such as school kids and middle aged. Whatever it is, it is very widespread and hitting a range of ages. In related news, one of my neighbors died yesterday, after being hospitalized a few days after his “flu shot”. He was an older man in his 80s, but was active and I saw him walking around downtown perhaps three weeks ago. Was it a Covid booster or a regular flu shot? Initial reports were that it was a booster, but now there is some uncertainty. He became paralyzed except for fingers and toes, was put on a ventilator, and subsequently passed away. Very bright guy, and a good man. He was a major community supporter. He will be missed.

  42. beththeserf says:

    Best wishes to you both for a quick recovery, David A.

  43. David A says:

    Thank you for the well wishes. Just an FYI, the antigen tests are free to have on hand if you want. (Free, up to 8 a month, if you are on medicare and have your card handy) I do not know how long one will test positive for. This latest Covid iteration they say tends to last about 10 days or so. I will test today at some point. I am anxious to get back to pickleball! Pickleball is an incredibly fun sport with much in the way of health benefits to offer, so highly recommended if your health allows. I play three to four times a week. My resting heart rate had dropped about 10 beats a minute, and many common aches and pains had vanished.

  44. cdquarles says:

    Medical billing is done by using diagnostic codes for diseases. ICD9 is the 9th edition and ICD10 is the 10th edition. They reviewed charts based on those codes. I did not see where they did any in depth follow up based on the codes they looked at in the paper.

Anything to say?
