As you probably already know by now, there have been a series of massive cardiovascular events during the past two years. It’s been revealed that the main cause for this is the pandemic of covid 19 and also some of the covid vaccines, which trigger huge risks for heart disease, as we already reported. Check out more details about this below.
AstraZeneca covid vaccine in the news
The other day, we revealed that there is a new study that reportedly found a causal link between the viral vector vaccines by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson and the occurrence of blood disorders.
It seems that the controversy around the covid vaccine continues.
A recent study conducted by the British Medical Journal found that the risk of thrombosis -(this means blood clots that block blood vessels) after an AstraZeneca vaccine was higher than after a Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
“After a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, there is a 30% higher risk of thrombocytopenia compared to a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine,” the study noted. The very same notes also added that this risk is rare.
We suggest that you read more details about this in the previous article that we published the other day.

This study examines the impact of bariatric surgery on the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and a composite of cardiovascular outcomes in a large population cohort. The notes also reveal the following:
“Additionally, the impact of different bariatric surgery procedures on cardiovascular outcomes is assessed and compared.”
It’s important to note the fact that bariatric surgery has been shown to improve comorbid conditions that are associated with cardiovascular disease and death.
“Few large studies have examined the impact of bariatric surgery on cardiovascular outcomes and specifically compared the different bariatric procedures,” according to the same notes. Check out the original article for more details about the issue.
