A leading NHS cardiologist has changed his mind about the potential health risks of the Covid vaccine following the death of his father – and he is now calling for the mRNA jabs to be suspended. Dr Aseem Malhotra had previously appeared on TV’s Good Morning Britain to encourage vaccine uptake after praising vaccines as “one of medicine’s greatest achievements” in an article published in the Journal of Insulin Resistance.
He told The Telegraph that, at the time, he thought traditional vaccines were “the Holy Grail of medicine, and it was not even a possibility for me that they could do any harm”. But he has now changed his mind on the Covid jabs following the sudden death of his father.
He told The Telegraph he “cannot understand” how Dr Kailash Chand, a former deputy chair of the British Medical Association (BMA), could suffer a fatal cardiac arrest. Dr Malhotra said that his father, 73, was “one of the fittest guys I knew” who was still walking up mountains shortly before he died.
However, a post-mortem revealed severe blockages in two of three major arteries and his son believes the booster vaccine he’d had six months previously was a factor in his death.
“I knew my dad’s medical history inside out,” Dr Malhotra told The Telegraph. “We did some heart scans a few years earlier and all was clear, so when the post-mortem showed severe blockages I couldn’t understand it, even though it was my (area of) expertise. At the time people were trolling me, saying it was the vaccine, and I got really angry and blocked them, because that was not my mindset. But then I started to notice increased incidences in cardiac deaths and I started to wonder.”
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has reported around 30,000 more deaths than expected involving heart disease since the pandemic began. In some weeks last year, there were more than 1,000 excess deaths with cardiovascular disease mentioned on the death certificate.
While Dr Malhotra acknowledges other causes are a factor, he is convinced vaccines are playing a role and he cited Pfizer’s own trial data which showed there were four cardiac arrests in those who took the vaccine compared with just one in the placebo group, to support his theory. He also referred to a controversial study published in the journal Circulation by the US cardiologist Dr Stephen Gundry, who claimed inflammatory markers in his patients soared after they received vaccines – taking their five-year heart attack risk from 11 per cent to 25 percent….
