Dr. Mike Yeadon is the former chief scientist and VP for respiratory research and development at a major drug company speaks his truth on the vaccine and vaccine passports. A must listen too!
“Why are you choosing to not receive a COVID-19 vaccine?” This is a common question genuinely being asked by friends, family, and our physicians these days who genuinely care about our physical well-being, and we sincerely appreciate that concern.
In a dramatic departure from medical ethics standards in place for decades, the CDC has been recommending that pregnant women get the new experimental COVID vaccines, even though pregnant women were excluded from all the clinical trials and we have no safety data for use in pregnancy. How does COVID affect pregnancy? Flu and whooping cough vaccines are used safely in pregnancy, but are there differences between the traditional vaccines and the experimental COVID vaccines? What are some of the risks for the mother and the baby with the COVID vaccines? Why is pregnancy a greater risk situation for the blood clotting risks with the COVID vaccines? What’s the difference between natural immunity from a COVID infection and the immunity after a COVID vaccine?
These questions and more are discussed with physician host, DrLee4America, and two highly specialist physician guests: Dr. Richard Blumrick and Dr. Raphael Stricker.
Dr. Richard Blumrick is a Duke fellowship-trained in Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist who did his fellowship research on the use of lipid coatings to increase transport across the placenta, and is Chairman of Obstetrics at a major hospital in a large southwestern city. Dr. Blumrick specializes in treating women who have medical conditions which then become pregnant, and effects on the baby that can arise from the medical diseases or the drugs used to treat them, as well as healthy women who develop medical complications while pregnant.
Dr. Raphael Stricker is a specialist in Internal Medicine trained at Columbia University in New York, with subspecialty training in hematology, oncology, immunology, and immunotherapy from California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. He is currently the Medical Director of the Alan E. Beer Medical Center for Reproductive Immunology in Los Gatos, CA. He is past President of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) and a board member of LymeDisease.org. He has testified at Lyme disease hearings before the California State Senate and the United States Congress. He has authored and published over 200 medical journal articles, abstracts and letters. His research interests include immunologically-triggered miscarriages, tickborne diseases, and COVID-19. He is the recipient of the AMA Award for Physician Excellence and an Outstanding Reviewer Award from the Annals of Internal Medicine.

It’s not uncommon to hear about major drug recalls due to concerns over contamination. Just three years ago we reported on a major recall by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over a high blood pressure medication found to be tainted with a cancer-causing chemical called NDEA.
In breaking news, drug contamination is the reason for a recent Japan recall of a batch of COVID shots, although regulators in the European Union (EU) are still allowing production to continue at the plant where these shots originated from.
COVID SHOT CONTAMINATION: Japanese officials halt 1.6 million doses of Moderna shots due to presence of metal in product
On August 26, Japanese officials halted the use of 1.63 million doses of the Moderna COVID shot that were sent to over 860 jab centers across the nation. This suspension occurred more than a week after the Japanese distributor Takeda Pharmaceutical found evidence of metal contaminants within many of the shot vials.
NHK, in a report published late on Thursday, cited health ministry sources as saying the contaminant was believed to be a particle that reacted to magnets and was therefore suspected to be a metal. Moderna has described it as “particulate matter” that did not pose a safety or efficacy issue.
A Japanese health ministry official said the composition of the contaminant has not been confirmed. In a statement, Takeda said it asked Moderna to investigate the issue and that it would work with the ministry to replace the affected supply
According to Japanese health ministry officials, the contaminant found within the botched shots was shown to react to magnets – a finding which certainly calls into question the media’s blanket dismissal of numerous accounts of people showing that their bodies were unusually magnetized following their COVID jab.
Moderna, meanwhile, insists these metal contaminants are “particulate matter” from manufacturing or production, and do not pose any safety or efficacy issue.
The contaminated shots distributed across Japan originally came from a plant in Spain run by pharmaceutical firm Rovi. Interestingly, drug regulators from the European Union are not going to require the plant to halt production at this time, despite the fact that the investigation over the contamination is still ongoing.
Setting aside what shouldn’t be in Moderna jab – here’s at least one ingredient that comes with possible health concerns
Unknowingly putting metals into the body can have a variety of harmful health effects. But it’s not just what shouldn’t be in these drugs that are concerning some.
For example, information from Moderna reveals that their C19 jab – which is now called Spikevax in the EU – contains an ingredient called polyethylene glycol/macrogol (PEG).
According to the PEG Safety Data Sheet, there is no information available on this chemical’s carcinogenic effects, mutagenic effects, endocrine-disrupting effects, teratogenicity effects, reproductive effects, OR developmental effects. In other words, there isn’t enough evidence to prove that this chemical is safe for human consumption – yet it’s found in common household items including cleaners, baby wipes, and cosmetics.
There is some evidence pointing to PEG’s potential health hazards, however. According to MadeSafe.org, PEG is often produced using another chemical called ethylene oxide, which causes cancer. For this reason, it’s possible that PEG can be unintentionally contaminated with ethylene oxide. (Chemicals made with ethylene oxide can also be contaminated with another carcinogen called 1,4-dioxane.)
As a “penetration enhancer,” PEG also makes it easier for other substances – both toxic and non-toxic to pass through the skin and enter the body.
It’s an eye-opening experience to look up the Safety Data Sheet information of each COVID shot ingredient. For example, another compound found in the Moderna shot called Sodium Acetate Trihydrate has known mutagenic effects in animals (meaning it has shown to be able to mutate DNA).
Consider researching these ingredients yourself as you make informed decisions about your health.

In September, Denmark made headlines for dropping all of its domestic pandemic restrictions, including the COVID shot digital passport, which is no longer required to enter nightclubs, restaurants, and other public spaces. According to NPR, the Danish government no longer considers COVID-19 “a socially critical disease.”
Officials credit the high vaccination rate in Denmark – where reportedly 80% of people older than 12 have received 2 doses of a Pfizer or Moderna shot – as the reason for this significant shift. But recently, Denmark and another country from Europe suddenly paused the rollout of one of these Big Pharma jabs to younger populations due to the damaging health effects observed.
BREAKING: Two additional European countries say NO to Moderna COVID shot for younger age groups because jab causing heart inflammation
On October 6, Reuters announced that regulators from both Denmark and Sweden have decided to stop giving the Moderna COVID shot to younger people due to the increased risk of heart inflammation post-jab among young recipients. On October 8, we learned that Finland also suspended the use of Moderna’s COVID-19 injection for young men and boys.
According to the National Institute of Health, heart inflammation, including myocarditis and pericarditis, can lead to many severe consequences, including heart failure, shock, stroke, and lung problems in severe or untreated cases, among other complications.
Swedish public health officials stated that they are pausing Moderna’s mRNA vaccine administration to anyone born in 1991 or later due to the increasingly observed link between the shot and heart inflammation in younger males.
The Swedish health agency stated that “the connection is especially clear regarding Moderna’s vaccine … especially after the second dose.”
Officials in Denmark echoed these statements when they said that in “preliminary data … there is a suspicion of an increased risk of heart inflammation when vaccinated with Moderna.”
Are these officials doing their due diligence – or is this some veiled attempt to position Pfizer as the jab leader?
When U.S. officials temporarily paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson jab to investigate the risk of dangerous blood clots following their COVID-19, mainstream media used it as an example to praise the government for their due diligence to protect the public.
But some skeptics had a different perspective: that Johnson & Johnson was being sacrificed in public discourse to paint the mRNA shots from Pfizer and Moderna in a better light, even though VAERS data and research studies – including a July 2021 study from Spain – have indicated an increased risk of blood clots following the mRNA shots, too.
The same skepticism is arising now in Europe. After Denmark and Sweden said they are pausing Moderna shots for young people, they are instead recommending the Comirnaty® injection from Pfizer/BioNTech. Officials in Norway have also advised men under 30 to get Comirnaty® instead of other COVID shot options.
What do you think: Is there enough data to suggest the Pfizer shot is the “safest” option of the available COVID shots, especially for younger people? For young, healthy people who are unlikely to get seriously ill from COVID-19, do the potential “benefits” of getting a COVID shot really outweigh the potential risks?
And, finally, don’t you think it’s odd that the one drug that continues to come out ahead – in the media – is produced by the company that paid the highest criminal fine in U.S. history for healthcare fraud? Bottom line: whatever you decide, just make sure it’s an informed choice.

Alexander, PhD Health Research Methodologist Evidence-Based Medicine, Clinical epidemiologist, Former WHO-PAHO and US Health and Human Services (HHS), consultant/senior COVID Pandemic advisor, Former McMaster A ProfessorEvidence-Based Medicine.

“Children do not readily acquire SARS-CoV-2 (very low risk), spread it to other children or teachers, or endanger parents or others at home. This is the settled science. In the rare cases where a child contracts Covid virus it is very unusual for the child to get severely ill or die. Masking can do positive harm to children – as it can to some adults. But the cost benefit analysis is entirely different for adults and children – particularly younger children. Whatever arguments there may be for consenting adults – children should not be required to wear masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Of course, zero risk is not attainable – with or without masks, vaccines, therapeutics, distancing or anything else medicine may develop or government agencies may impose. In this regard, given the near zero risk to children, and given the emerging risks of the vaccine, then why would parents consider vaccinating their children with these untested vaccines that could set their children up to a lifetime of disability or death. These COVID vaccines are contra-indicated for children and provide no benefit, just opportunity for harm. No parent should allow their child to be vaccinated with these vaccines especially given they do not need them, and we have no ‘excluded harms’ by the sub-optimal research that was conducted”.
- The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person, which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.
The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
- The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
- The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study, that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
- The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
- No experiment should be conducted, where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the
experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
- The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
- Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.
- The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
- During the course of the experiment, the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end, if he has reached the physical or mental state, where continuation of the experiment seemed to him to be impossible.
- During the course of the experiment, the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgement required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.

Functional neurological disorders (FND) were found to be associated with COVID-19 vaccines, according to recent case reports.
Two cases of young women manifesting FND after COVID-19 vaccination were reported by Alfonso Fasano, MD, PhD, of the University of Toronto, and Antonio Daniele, MD, PhD, of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome, in a letter to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry.
Two other published reports showed probable FND precipitated by COVID-19 vaccine administration, highlighting that FND should be considered when assessing post-vaccine neurologic symptoms, wrote Matthew Butler, MD, of Kings College London in England, and co-authors in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience.
FND involves a disruption in normal brain mechanisms for controlling the body. It can be triggered by physical or emotional events including head injury, medical or surgical procedures, or vaccinations. People with FND may present with a range of neurological symptoms such as seizures, sensory abnormalities, gait or balance disturbance, or weakness. FND is distinct from feigning because patients perceive their symptoms as involuntary.
“We strongly encourage clinicians to be aware of the possibility for FND in response to SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations,” Butler told MedPage Today. “FND can be a serious and debilitating condition; however, it does not implicate any vaccine constituents and should not hamper ongoing vaccination efforts.”
“Making clinicians aware of this can benefit people with FND reactions to vaccines, as well as maintaining public confidence in the vaccine,” Butler added. “Rigorous causality assessments should occur when FND reactions are suspected.”
“Among the various adverse events which might be observed after COVID-19 vaccination, the occurrence of functional — once called psychogenic — neurological disorders might be a challenging issue for healthcare providers, media, and public opinion with a negative impact on vaccination campaigns,” noted Fasano and Daniele.
“In our view, FND following COVID-19 vaccination will not be a rare phenomenon and will be widely covered by the media, being interpreted as a direct consequence of the vaccine, as already seen in the past,” they wrote.
The first case from Fasano and Daniele involved a woman who presented with a short episode of generalized psychogenic non-epileptic seizures 20 minutes after receiving her second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The event was followed by different episodes that included an inability to move her whole body. No post-ictal period followed these episodes, some of which were captured by video-electroencephalography and did not show any epileptic activity.
The second patient had persistent dizziness and reported loss of tactile sensitivity in her right arm and leg about 2 weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine. Her brain CT scan was unremarkable, and neurological examination did not show objective loss of tactile or pain sensitivity.
“In both patients, neurological symptoms were characterized by a sudden onset and overt inconsistency, as typically observed in patients with FND,” Fasano and Daniele wrote.
The cases reported by Butler and colleagues also involved previously healthy women, both in their 30s. One had probable FND after her first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine; the other, after her first Moderna shot.
“The close development of functional motor symptoms after the vaccine does not implicate the vaccine as the cause of those symptoms,” observed Alberto Espay, MD, MSc, of the University of Cincinnati, who was not involved with the case reports.
“Correlation does not imply causation,” Espay told MedPage Today. “If neurological symptoms following vaccination are determined to be functional during a neurological exam, then the vaccination can only be considered a stressor or precipitant, much like any other stressor might, such as a motor vehicle accident or sleep deprivation.”
Earlier this year, a group led by David Perez, MD, MMSc, of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, published a paper in JAMA Neurology that discussed videos that had emerged on Facebook, YouTube, and other channels showing people with severe neurological symptoms, such as convulsions and difficulty walking, after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
“The spread of these videos could fuel vaccine hesitancy by giving an overly simplistic impression of potential links between the vaccine and major neurological symptoms,” Perez told MedPage Today. “Instead, these are symptoms of a real, brain-based disorder that sits at the intersection of neurology and psychiatry.”
“It is recognized that physical events such as head injury, surgeries, or vaccinations in some individuals can precipitate the development of FND,” Perez continued. “In such instances, one of the important mechanisms is the attention drawn to the body.”
Neurologists and other healthcare professionals have an obligation to explain FND to the public, he added.
While health experts have tried to stress that in most cases, there is no direct link between COVID-19 vaccines and various media-covered adverse events, more needs to be done, Fasano and Daniele noted.
This is especially true in light of misinformation and conspiracy beliefs about the COVID-19 pandemic, which are “now enriched by the theories of anti-vaccine movements,” they wrote. “We suggest that the medical community should be more vocal in informing the media and public opinion about FND, thus making a further step towards the establishment of ‘eHealth literacy.’” Last Updated August 20, 2021

What exactly is this “mystery” ingredient in Pfizer’s “secret sauce”?
This is important to know, since this is a component of the lipid nanoparticles in every Pfizer/BioNTech shot.
“How about doing a story about my uncle who was in fine shape until he got vaccinated. Or my boss’s uncle who was healthy and in his 50s, then died suddenly a week after getting vaccinated.”
The risk of serious COVID-19 is so low in children, adolescents, and young adults of child-bearing age that the standards for safety must be set much higher for them.
Australian doctor for over 30 years, I suddenly finds himself completely isolated from people he knew, and from humanity. In this situation, there seems to be no way to help with healing or caring or treating, because he has been expelled like a priest excommunicated from the church.He has been cancelled. Little wonder why doctors follow the narrative.
Over 30 world-class experts break the silence and reveal the truth about COVID, the safe, effective and censored protocols, and the deadly dangers of the vaccine. Plus the shocking scientific evidence to support their claims.
The inventor of the mRNA technology, Dr. Robert Malone, spoke out and warned the world about the COVID injections and has been erased from the history books.
In an interview with The Defender, Marie Follmer said no one warned her that her 19-year-old son — a healthy, elite athlete who had recovered from COVID — shouldn’t get the Pfizer vaccine because it would put him at greater risk of developing myocarditis.
