(SNews) – One of the world’s leading heart doctors has spoken out to raise the alarm about the soaring numbers of sudden deaths among young, healthy athletes.
Dr. Peter McCullough of The Wellness Company, a world-renowned heart doctor and epidemiologist, is warning that his research directly conflicts with the government’s narrative that Covid shots are “safe and effective.”
McCullough argues that the shots and “boosters” are responsible for the “explosion” in sudden deaths of young people.
The cardiologist, who previously served as the vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and a professor at Texas A&M University, cited data that shows a tenfold increase in such tragedies since the mRNA jabs were launched in 2020.
In recent interviews, McCullough has called on governments to halt the vaccinations and investigate their links to strokes, cardiac arrests, and sudden deaths in young people.
During an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on January 12, McCullough responded to several recent cases of young athletes dying unexpectedly.
Citing the cases of Jordan Tyler Brister, Hunter Brown, and Blaze Jacobs, Ingraham asked McCullough: “Why does it appear like an inordinate number of young, healthy Americans are dropping dead?”
McCullough responded citing the analyses of cardiac arrest incidents among players in European pro and semi-pro soccer leagues.
He said that before the vaccine rollout, an average of 29 active players died from cardiac arrests per year.
However, “since the vaccines have been released, that number, now annualized from a universe of publicly reported deaths we reviewed, is now 283, nearly a tenfold increase,” he said.
“And we’ve also demonstrated a rising mortality in those under age 15.”
He said there is a “straight line” correlation between the shots and the “explosion of death of young people.”
On January 15, during an interview with Zeee Media, McCullough spoke about athletes in the U.S. who had been forced to receive the mandated jabs.
“The straight line is this: the [NFL] teams mandated the vaccine,” he explained.
“The FDA [U.S. Food & Drug Administration] says the vaccines cause myocarditis (heart damage) and blood clots.
“The autopsy studies that are done, when they identify people dying after [taking] the vaccine, show myocarditis and blood clots as the cause of death.
“And now we have this rash of sudden deaths.”
