COVID-19 mRNA vaccines silence

Breaking the Silence: Do mRNA Vaccine Harms Outweigh Benefits?

31 January 2023

4.5 MINS

As someone who has always questioned the safety and efficacy of the Covid ‘injectables’, I’ve thought long and hard about why more doctors haven’t voiced concerns, why so many seem unaware of the documented side effects, and why so few are sounding the alarm.

To help me answer this question, I spoke with renowned UK cardiologist and heart-health campaigner Dr Aseem Malhotra, who has been breaking the silence.

‘Double-jabbed’ Malhotra originally supported the program, until a series of events sent him digging into the evidence. What he discovered alarmed him and resulted in the publication of two evidence-based, peer-reviewed papers along with a call for the immediate suspension of the Covid mRNA roll-out. He tells his story:

‘Despite being one of pharma’s biggest critics, I could not have expected or conceived of the possibility that these vaccines, these new vaccines, could cause harm. So very early on I was one of the first to have two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, and I helped out at a vaccine centre in January 2021.

About a month later I had a conversation with a friend of mine, film director Gurinder Chadha (who was) vaccine hesitant. I said to her, “Listen, traditional vaccines are still one of the safest pharmacological interventions in the history of medicine. That doesn’t mean that all vaccines are completely safe. No drug is completely safe. But when you compare them to other pharmacological interventions I’ve talked about and campaigned on, for example diabetes drugs, blood pressure pills or statins, they are far, far safer.”’

Malhotra further explains his view during a Good Morning Britain interview.

‘I said, “There are rational concerns for vaccine hesitancy and irrational concerns. The rational concerns are when looking at what the pharmaceutical industry has done for years — they’ve been found guilty of fraud on many occasions — and prescribed medications are the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer.” So, I was being open, and I felt compassion for people who were vaccine-hesitant. And I said, “In my opinion, as it stands at the moment, traditional vaccines are the safest.”

‘Six months later my father suffered an unexplained… cardiac arrest. The post-mortem didn’t make sense, he was a very fit guy, yet he had very severe narrowings of two of his coronary arteries. I had known his cardiac history inside out, we had done imaging on him a few years earlier. I found myself thinking “hold on a minute, he’s got a rapid progression of coronary artery disease when he’s doing really well during lockdown, walking 10,000 steps a day and eating well. This doesn’t make sense.“ And I could only attribute it at the time to stress, I couldn’t think of any other reason.’

Over the following months, emerging data led Malhotra to question whether the vaccine was linked to his father’s death. The first was an abstract published in Circulation (November 8, 2021) by US cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Steven Gundry, who followed several hundred of his patients after the mRNA (Moderna/Pfizer) jabs. Gundry found that inflammatory markers correlated with heart disease risk went through the roof. On average, that change increased the risk of those people having a heart attack or stroke within the next five years, from 11 per cent up to 25 per cent. This increase in risk is massive.


The next event raised more alarm bells for Malhotra.

‘Within two weeks of that abstract, a whistle-blower contacted me from a prestigious institution in the country, and said that a group of researchers had accidentally found through imaging studies that mRNA vaccines were increasing heart attack risk through inflammation, but the lead researcher said they were not going to publish these findings because it may affect funding from pharma.

‘I then felt a duty and contacted GB News saying, “There is a Circulation abstract but also something else I’ve heard,” and I spoke about it on GB News. That interview went viral … with me raising questions and saying, “We need to investigate this.”’

The pushback was strong.

‘One very prestigious medical body that I am affiliated with received a number of anonymous complaints from doctors that I was bringing the medical profession into disrepute, and that as I was in an association with them, I was bringing them into disrepute. I was then asked to formally respond,’ he relates. Malhotra responded and let off with a warning.


This experience made him realise how difficult it would be to publicly expose things, so he decided to critically appraise the evidence himself.

‘When I broke the data down, it became very clear, the harms of the mRNA vaccine massively outweigh the benefits. It was not even close! And that’s based on the highest level of quality of data we will ever have.’

The evidence comes from the original double-blind, randomised control trials, that led to the approval of both Pfizer and Moderna by regulators worldwide. Malhotra explains,

‘In a reanalysis of the original trials with the Wuhan strain, eminent scientists essentially found you were more likely to suffer a serious adverse event — for example hospitalisation, disability, or a life-changing event – than you were to be hospitalised with Covid. That means, in essence, the mRNA vaccine should likely never, ever have been approved for anybody in the first place.’

He continues:

‘The randomised control trial data showed a risk of serious adverse events of at least 1 in 800 within two months. It’s probably much higher than that as you go forward because one of the mechanisms is accelerated heart disease. My dad died six months after the second dose of the vaccine; many people are going to be dropping dead and having heart attacks months after having the vaccine because it accelerates coronary artery disease.

But other vaccines have been pulled for far less: the swine flu vaccine was withdrawn in 1976 following episodes of Guillain Barre syndrome at a rate of 1/100,000; rotavirus vaccine was withdrawn in 1999 for causing a form of bowel obstruction (intussusception) in 1/10,000; this is 1/800 at least. So, it’s a no-brainer. The question is: why have they not pulled it? Some say, “It was an emergency use authorisation.” Well, it’s no longer an emergency.’

This begs the question: if the evidence is now so clear, why does the silence continue? Well, I’m glad you asked. In a follow-up article, I will explore the factors contributing to the great silence — hint, it’s not just AHPRA — and how we can move from here.

Encouragingly, if recent events are anything to go by, the silence is (slowly) breaking. The past few weeks have seen appearances by doctors on mainstream media voicing jab safety concerns, including Australia’s Dr Kerryn Phelps, and Malhotra’s recent truth bomb drop on a live BBC broadcast receiving millions of views on Twitter. Thanks Elon.

They are joined by other eminent professors and clinicians sounding the alarm and calling for governments to ‘Stop the Shots’.

    Dr Julie, thank you so much for this meticulous breakdown of the story. I am so glad you finished up with Australia’s Dr Kerryn Phelps.
    But, still, our governments’ are not blowing the ‘time out’ whistle and saying, so sorry, Australia, we were misled, we will not do this again, and lets set up a mechanism to properly investigate and compensate injectable injuries and deaths.

    A very good report of the evidence DrJulie, and I like Dr Jim’s idea of establishing an investigation.
    I believe we need to keep informing the Christian leadership of the truth of this because the church has been silent to date, and ultimately this is a spiritual battle against principalities and powers in high places but the church has been given responsibility and authority to pull down these powers in Jesus Christ.
    I would also refer to 2 Chronicles 7:14, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land..
    Let us as the believers of the word of God , listen and obey

      A loud amen! from me. Yes this is a spiritual battle even though it seems to be played out at a purely ‘objective, intellectual battle of ideas’. I can certainly relate to this having all the hallmarks of ‘spiritual warfare’.

      Thankyou for speaking of the elephant in many rooms. So much harm.

    Your analysis and stats prove daily that the diabolical harm this stuff has wrought across the world cannot go unpunished.
    God bless you Julie ❤️

      yes, I agree with you,, serious stuff. Lot of my friends are refusing the vaccines because they share the same Holy spirit warning against these ‘ vaccines’

    I’m still waiting for a public apology from certain Christian churches/ denominations who were encouraging people to have these experimental substances injected into them and discriminating against those who chose not to. It was a foolish and very unChristian way to behave. There didn’t seem to be much pushback or care or concern from the Christian church for the unjabbed losing their jobs and livelihoods either. So disappointing and damaging to the unity of the Christian family .

      Your voice is loud clear and honest Emmy. Your voice is sound and true. May God continue to bless you.

      I agree with your sentiments Emmy. So many suffering, hurt, loneliness, blindness & indifference. God knows and cares.

    Thank you Julie for standing up and stating the obvious. I look forward to your next article.

    Great article! So thankful that this subject is being addressed at Canberra Declaration…true shepherds of the sheep! I heard the QLD CMO call for people to get their 5th jab the other day. We need to continue to speak up!

    Your research and commentary on COVID-19 has been invaluable Julie, keep it up!

    Thanks Julie we have found as church ministers some of the national and state church leaders of denominations went further with mandates than was intended bybtye governments in some cases, causing much division and harm to those they were saying they wanted to protect ..we await their repentance and some apologies and even restitution …i believe the government was embolden to go ahead with the program due to the support of some of the overall church leadership
