A recent study by cardiologist Steven R. Gundry, MD is creating concern around mRNA vaccines. Recently he presented his findings to the American Heart Association (AHA) in November 2021.
According to Dr. Gundry, the risk of developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) significantly increased in patients after receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
The study included 566 men and women between the ages of 28-97 who were patients in a preventive cardiology practice. All patients received a new PULS Cardiac Test 2-10 weeks after their second COVID-19 vaccine. The PULS (Protein Unstable Lesion Signature) cardiac test is a simple blood test that detects the leading causes of heart attacks, Unstable Cardiac Lesion Rupture. It creates a score measuring the 5-year risk of developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
The results were compared with a PULS score from 3-5 months before any patient had received a vaccination. The PULS score increases with above-normal elevation. All participants who were in this study had been taking this test every 3-6 months for 8 years.
Here’s the abstract of that paper, titled “Mrna COVID Vaccines Dramatically Increase Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS Risk as Measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning“
Steven R Gundry
Our group has been using the PLUS Cardiac Test (GD Biosciences, Inc, Irvine, CA) a clinically validated measurement of multiple protein biomarkers which generates a score predicting the 5 yr risk (percentage chance) of a new Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). The score is based on changes from the norm of multiple protein biomarkers including IL-16, a proinflammatory cytokine, soluble Fas, an inducer of apoptosis, and Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF)which serves as a marker for chemotaxis of T-cells into epithelium and cardiac tissue, among other markers. Elevation above the norm increases the PULS score, while decreases below the norm lowers the PULS score.The score has been measured every 3-6 months in our patient population for 8 years. Recently, with the advent of the mRNA COVID 19 vaccines (vac) by Moderna and Pfizer, dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients.This report summarizes those results. A total of 566 pts, aged 28 to 97, M:F ratio 1:1 seen in a preventive cardiology practice had a new PULS test drawn from 2 to 10 weeks following the 2nd COVID shot and was compared to the previous PULS score drawn 3 to 5 months previously pre- shot. Baseline IL-16 increased from 35=/-20 above the norm to 82 =/- 75 above the norm post-vac; sFas increased from 22+/- 15 above the norm to 46=/-24 above the norm post-vac; HGF increased from 42+/-12 above the norm to 86+/-31 above the norm post-vac. These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac.We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.

According to the study findings, the risk of ACS more than doubled in patients, from 11% to 25%. That’s a significant increase and one that should be cause for concern.
Aside from concerns from this study, there are many other causes for concern when it comes to vaccines. According to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) data, there have over 15,000 cases of myocarditis and nearly 10,000 heart attacks as of November 26th, 2021. Those that are aware of statistics like these are wondering if taking the vaccines is worth the risk for a virus that has an incredibly low mortality rate, especially among younger and healthy individuals.
Of course, Dr. Gundry is not the only physician who has voiced concerns over how the mRNA vaccines impact heart health. Dr. Aseem Malhotra, consultant cardiologist from the U.K. was recently interviewed and had this to say:
“I’ve seen this abstract publication circulation. I was concerned about it for a number of reasons. First and foremost, we have to understand that there’s been a shift in understanding of heart disease over the years that we know now it’s a chronic inflammatory condition that is exacerbated by something called and resistance, which talked about in the show before, which is related to poor lifestyle. What this research has shown is that markers associated with increasing the risk of heart attack and probably even progression of underlying heart disease and people have already got some heart disease has been significantly increased risk from 11% of five years risk of heart attack to 25%. Now, that’s a huge increase. If this is true, then it’s very concerning indeed. But in medicine, in good science, we never rely on one study. We need to replicate these findings. However, what I will share with you today on GB News is a few days ago, after this was published, somebody from a very prestigious British institution, Cardiology Department researcher, a whistleblower, if you like, contacted me to say that the researchers in this Department had found something similar within the coronary arteries linked to the vaccine inflammation from imaging studies around the core arteries. And they had a meeting and these researchers at the moment have decided they’re not going to publish their findings because they are concerned about losing research money from the drug industry. Now, this person was very upset about it and I wanted to obviously share this on GB news today. What I would say is that we then knowing this information, which is very concerning Steven Gundy’s paper in circulation and also anecdotal evidence. I mean, I have a lot of interaction with the Cardiology community across the UK and anecdotally I’ve been getting told by colleagues that they are seeing younger and younger people coming in with heart attacks. Now, what does this mean in terms of the data, we have to put the jigsaw for the pieces together. We know since July there’s been almost 10,000 excess non COVID deaths and most of those, a significant proportion of those are being driven by circulatory disease. In other words, heart attack and stroke. There’s been a 30% increase in people having dying at home, and often these are because of cardiac arrest. Of course, this is also something close to my heart because my own father is one of those statistics. He had a cardiac arrest at home July the 26th. So when this data since this data has been collected, so where do we go from here? I think the signal is quite strong. I personally think that this needs investigating. So I think the Joint Committee of Vaccines and Immunization should absolutely investigate this. I think that the researchers, I really hope that they take a look in the mirror and realize the ones from where this whistleblows come from. They realize that they should publish this stuff because their duty primarily is to patients, not the interests of the drug industry. And I think the third thing and this has been a discussion that’s been ongoing. I think now it’s high time that policymakers around the world put an end to the mandates because I think if this signal is strong and if it’s correct, then history will not be on their side and the public will not forgive them for it. Alex So this is very concerning. It needs investigating, and hopefully it can be resolved very soon. I think the other thing to mention as well, we shouldn’t ignore the other possibilities of why there’s been an increase in heart attacks. So part of the stuff I’ve done in my research and analysis over the years is looking at the lifestyle factors that drive heart disease and heart attacks and the other things that we know have also happened, which also, I’m sure a contributing factor is people’s diets got worse in general, over lockdown and there was pandemic stress. Chronic psychological stress is a significant risk factor. So if it wasn’t for this data that’s come out recently, I would have attributed most of these excess deaths from heart disease to those lifestyle factors. Now the vaccine has been thrown in to the equation. We can’t ignore it.“
