Cliff Notes Version of the Mercola article below:
1. "In September 2022, The Epoch Times asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release its Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) data mining results. PRR1 measures how common an adverse event is for a specific drug compared to all the other drugs in the database.
According to the standard operating procedures for the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is run jointly by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the CDC is required to perform these data mining analyses.
Not only did the CDC refuse to release the data, but it also provided FALSE INFORMATION — twice — in response to The Epoch Times' questions about the monitoring being performed."
"It's worth noting that the CDC didn't perform its first safety signal analysis until March 25, 2022
— 15 months after the shots were rolled out. Why the long wait — especially since the CDC had announced it would begin monitoring in early 2021? Just consider, for a moment, how many lives have been lost because the CDC failed to properly monitor safety, and still drags its feet when it comes to warning people about the risks involved."
2. CDC HAS IGNORED CLEAR 'DEATH' SIGNAL
"The CDC ignoring a clear signal for death is probably the most egregious example of its failures as a public health institution.
As early as July 2021, Matthew Crawford published a three-part series detailing how the CDC was hiding safety signals by using a flawed formula. In August that year, Steve Kirsch informed the agency of these problems, but was ignored.
Then, in an October 3, 2022, article,21 Kirsch went on to show how "death" should have triggered a signal even when using the CDC's flawed formula (which is described in its VAERS standard operating procedures manual."
The article goes on to demonstrate how the CDC deliberately used a math technique to "mask large numbers of safety signals" (pretty technical stuff unless you are really into math and statistics)
, and makes the following observation:
"Only someone who is incompetent or is deliberately trying to make the vaccines look safe would use the word 'and' in the definition of a safety signal.
Using 'and' means that if any one of the conditions isn't satisfied, no safety signal will be generated. As noted below, the PRR will rarely trigger which virtually guarantees that most events generated by an unsafe vaccine will never get flagged." He goes on to give a fictitious example of how this was done!
3. CALCULATING DEATH SIGNAL FOR THE COVID JAB
Next, Kirsch calculates the PRR for death for the COVID jab — using VAERS data and the CDC's definitions and formula. As of December 31, 2019, there were 6,157 deaths and 918,717 adverse events total for all vaccines other than the COVID shot. As of September 23, 2022, there were 31,214 deaths and 1.4 million adverse events total for the COVID jabs.
Here's the formula as explained by Kirsch: (Again, technical for most people, but here is his final observation on this matter)
"A safety signal should have been generated but wasn't. Why not?
… Hundreds of thousands of American lives have been lost due to the inability of the CDC to deploy their own flawed safety signal analysis … It's been known since at least 2004 that using reporting odds ratio (ROR) is a better estimate of relative risk than PRR. I don't know why the CDC doesn't use it."
The CDC is also hiding the severity of side effects in other ways. As explained by Fenton, the way side effects are categorized by the CDC help obfuscate the scale of certain problems. For example, "cardiac failure acute," "cardiac failure," "infarction," "myocardial strain" and "myocardial fibrosis" are listed as separate categories, even though in real life they're all potential effects of myocarditis.
By separating them, you end up with fewer frequency counts per category, thereby giving you an underpowered chi-square test so that a warning signal is not triggered. If related categories were merged, far stronger safety signals would likely emerge."
I would assume, at some point, there will be House hearings on the CDC's deliberate falsification of data on the "Safety Signals" and vaccine cover up issues. It will be interesting to see how this develops, and the response of the Biden Justice Department!https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2023/01/23/cdc-aware-hundreds-safety-signals-covid-jab.aspx?ui=bb187e67186e3cf3101d9bc1b0bb7998f4b4354bc7d2f6aa0b21b4f750852de1&sd=20210321&cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1ReadMore&cid=20230123&cid=DM1332603&bid=1702231533
