A researcher has claimed that anti-vaxx “conspiracy theories,” “fear-mongering” and “scare tactics” are causing otherwise healthy people to suffer unexpected heart attacks and blood clots after being vaccinated for Covid.
And in case you’re wondering, no, this isn’t satire.
Raymond D. Palmer, a self-identified mRNA alchemist from Western Australia, warns that there are serious risks associated with COVID-19 vaccines.
However, Palmer claims that adverse side effects are caused by anti-vaxxers rather than the shots themselves.
According to Palmer’s research, the adverse reactions to the vaccine are the result of stress brought on by receiving the vaccine.
“Much of this anti-vaccination sentiment could be attributed to the alleged side effects that are perpetuated across social media from anti-vaccination groups,” Palmer stated in his abstract.
“Fear-mongering and misinformation being peddled by people with no scientific training to terrorize people into staying unvaccinated is not just causing people to remain susceptible to viral outbreaks, but could also be causing more side effects seen in the vaccination process,” he continued.
Palmer added that “vasoconstriction and arterial constriction” are both apparent results of the “mental stress” caused by the “fear-mongering” and “disinformation” being pushed by anti-vaxxers.
Vasoconstriction and arterial constriction are what healthcare providers call when the muscles around your blood vessels tighten to make the space inside smaller.
“A mini-review of published literature has been conducted and found that mental stress clearly causes vasoconstriction and arterial constriction of the blood vessels,” he said.
“Therefore, if subjects are panicked, concerned, stressed or scared of the vaccination, their arteries will constrict and become smaller in and around the time of receiving the vaccine.
“This biological mechanism (the constriction of veins, arteries and vessels under mental stress) is the most likely cause for where there has been blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, dizziness, fainting, blurred vision, loss of smell and taste that may have been experienced shortly after vaccine administration,” he added.
“The extreme mental stress of the patient could most likely be attributed to the fear-mongering and scare tactics used by various anti-vaccination groups.
“This paper does not aim to rule in or out every side effect seen, but it is highly likely that many apparent side effects seen shortly after a subject has received a vaccine could be the result of restricted or congested blood flow from blood vessel or arterial constriction caused by emotional distress or placebo based on fear around vaccines,” Palmer said.
I've seen some absolute crap touted in the last 3 years but this one takes the biscuit.
"Strokes from the vaccine are caused by the stress of having the vaccine"
