Thank you for this analysis - the most thorough and balanced review I've seen!

Have you analyzed the serious and adverse reactions between the placebo and vaccinated groups? I'd be curious to know if the results were statistically significant.

Taking my time going through these well researched and presented data Chris. Thank you! I will share the link to your substack. I had the J&J back in April of 2021. Thought it was the lesser of the 3 evils. No issues afterwards and am trying to avoid a booster to go to Italy this summer. I'm 54 fit, metabolically heathly and topped off on my supplements. No Covid infection that I know of and I work in the hospital (pathology)

I looked at this a little bit differently.

"Using this calculator, the difference in mortality rates is P=0.41 and is not statistically significant:"

Doesn't P=0.41 mean the odds that the null hypothesis is correct? In other words, the hypothesis that vaccines cause higher rates of all-cause mortality is to be slightly preferred?

If the p-value were 0.05, that would be the odds that the null hypothesis is correct--5%.

If anything, the p-value suggests that the study was underpowered to consider all-cause mortality. As pharma employs statisticians and is not new to the vaccine rodeo, pharma must have known what numbers of participants were needed to power the study sufficiently for all-cause mortality statistics to show a clear signal for either the null hypothesis or for the vaccine increases mortality hypothesis. And the FDA wasn't interested in pursuing this question, which ought to be concerning for everybody.

The phrase, "is not statistically significant," should be banned since it is misleading.
