EXCLUSIVE Ep 48: Examining New CDC Sudden Cardiac Death Paper And Pfizer Subclinical Myocarditis Study With Cardiologist Dr. Anish Koka

And a tragic update on a vaccine-injured Canadian law enforcement officer. With Illusion of Consensus resident cardiologist Dr. Anish Koka.

Hi everyone,

In this bonus, member-only podcast episode, I interview our resident cardiologist Dr. Anish Koka about two recent major studies on cardiac risks associated with the mRNAs: Pfizer’s long-awaited subclinical myocarditis analysis and the CDC’s sudden cardiac death study. We start the conversation with a heartbreaking update (yikes, that adjective had to come to my mind first) on the case of a 38-year-old law enforcement member who developed vaccine myocarditis over two years ago. I interviewed him in a Substack piece at the time and just checked back in. Bad news. So much for “mild” and “transient” myocarditis assured by CDC and FDA talking-heads.

As promised to our loyal paid members, you will have access to bonus conversations every month. This is one of them. There is a free preview accessible to everyone for the first 10 minutes.


  • Dr. Anish Koka has been vocal about the vaccine myocarditis issue and has provided critical analysis of the data throughout the pandemic.

  • The case of a 38-year-old law enforcement member who developed vaccine myocarditis highlights the ongoing symptoms and complications that can arise from this condition.

  • The subclinical myocarditis study by Pfizer and the CDC study on post-vaccine sudden cardiac death in adolescents are important in shaping the discourse around the risks and benefits of the COVID vaccine.

  • There is a need for comprehensive data on the rate of sudden cardiac deaths after vaccination, especially in different age groups and with long-term follow-up.

  • Alternative treatments, such as stem cell therapy, are being explored for vaccine injuries. Further investigation is needed to understand the potential harm caused by mRNA vaccines on the heart, particularly in young individuals.

Sound Bites:

  • "mRNA vaccines are harming the heart, that there's some kind of mechanism that we need to understand better and investigate better."

  • "I think we should hold everyone to the same level of rigor."

  • "Given the numbers we're talking about here, some people are gonna have actual, you know more significant stuff than than what you're seeing here."
