Researchers are raising the alarm after a bombshell new study revealed that American teens and young children are dying at the highest levels seen in decades.
The study’s findings were published this week in the world-renowned Journal of the American Medical Association.
The researchers found that the mortality rate for minors aged 1 through 19 soared by almost 20% between 2020 and 2022.
As the study notes, this alarming spike cannot be ascribed to the COVID-19 virus.
As Slay News has been reporting, America and other nations around the world have seen sudden death rates skyrocket for all ages over the last couple of years.
Lawmakers in Japan have just revealed that the country is now suffering the highest number of excess deaths since World War 2.
Last summer, a data study found that the average life expectancy in America had dropped significantly for the second year in a row.
According to data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics, the average American was expected at birth to live to 78 years and 10 months in 2019.
That figure dropped to 77 years in 2020.
In 2022, the life expectancy for the U.S. population stood at 76 years and one month.
The life expectancy for Americans is now at the lowest age since 1996.
Not only are American geriatrics dying younger on average, but the nation’s youth are dying with greater frequency.
Prior to 2020, the trend saw life expectancy lengthen every year over the course of the 20th century.
Between 2019 and the end of 2021, the mortality rate for youths aged 1 through 19 increased by 19%.
Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and the University of Washington’s department of epidemiology noted that while persons ages 10-19 were driving the spike in the pediatric mortality rate, all-cause mortality also jumped by 8.4% in children ages 1-9 in 2021.
Babies under one-year-old were standouts, however, having not suffered an increase in mortality.
Some may argue that the spike is due to children dying from Covid due to the timeline.
However, the researchers noted that “this reversal in the pediatric mortality trajectory was caused not by COVID-19, but by injuries.”
Injuries are defined in the paper as “all external causes of morbidity and mortality.”
They further define “external causes” as those which “involve multiple mechanisms including transportation, firearms, and poisoning.”
The study explains that the number of “injury deaths” far outways the Covid mortality rate.
“In 2020, the COVID-19 mortality rate at ages 1 to 19 years was 0.24 deaths per 100 000, but the absolute increase in injury deaths alone was nearly 12 times higher (2.80 deaths per 100 000),” wrote the researchers.
“COVID-19 mortality rates at ages 1 to 19 years nearly doubled in 2021 but explained only 20.5% of that year’s increase in all-cause mortality.”
Elizabeth Wolf, the study paper’s co-author and an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the VCU School of Medicine, said, “We’ve now reached a tipping point where the number of injury-related deaths is so high that it is offsetting many of the gains we’ve made in treating other diseases.”
In Japan, officials believe the soaring excess deaths are caused by vaccines and argue the risks associated with mRNA shots are being covered up.
Japanese politicians are demanding that the government comes clean after the nation has just recorded a staggering 210,000 excess deaths – the highest number since World War II.
The Japanese government is coming under mounting pressure to tell the truth about the number of vaccine injuries and related deaths.
A growing number of experts believe the country’s vaccine mandates and the rollout of mRNA Covid shots are directly linked to the soaring excess deaths.
Japanese lawmaker Mr. Yanagase Hirofumi accused his government of covering up COVID-19 mRNA vaccine injuries and deaths.
Hirofumi is a high-profile Japanese politician who serves as a member of the House of Councillors of Japan.
During an explosive speech before Japan’s parliament, the National Diet, Hirofumi revealed the shocking number of excess deaths the country has recorded.
After revealing the bombshell numbers, Hirofumi asserted that “Covid didn’t cause so many more deaths.”
He then continued to explain that investigations have determined that the excess deaths are “suspected to be caused by adverse reactions to the Covid vaccine.”
According to Fukushima, the extensiveness of adverse health outcomes caused by the mRNA injections ultimately put billions of innocent people around the world in harm’s way.
