Zwölf Prozent höhere Sterbefallzahlen im Juli …

Im Juli 2022 sind in Deutschland nach einer Hochrechnung des Statistischen Bundesamtes (Destatis) 85 285 Menschen gestorben, heißt es in einer Pressemitteilung der Behörde. Diese Zahl liege 12 Prozent oder 9 130 Fälle über dem mittleren Wert (Median) der Jahre 2018 bis 2021 für diesen Monat. Wie bereits im Juni seien die Sterbefallzahlen dabei vor allem in Phasen sehr hoher Temperaturen erhöht gewesen, heißt es weiter.

Menstrual changes after Covid vaccines may be far more common than previously known

(July 15, 2022)

A study found that 42% of people with regular menstrual cycles said they bled more heavily than usual after their Covid vaccination.

(…)

The new survey started in April 2021, around the time people began to report unexpected bleeding and heavier flow post-vaccine. However, these anecdotes were at the time met with the rebuttal that there was no data linking menstrual changes to vaccination.

That was both true and indicative of a larger problem. Individuals who took part in Covid vaccine trials were not asked if they experienced menstrual changes.

COVID-19 vaccines linked to small increase in menstrual cycle length

(January 25, 2022)

The study was funded by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and Office of Research on Women’s Health. Results appeared in Obstetrics & Gynecology on January 5, 2022.

(…)

The team found that women who received a COVID-19 vaccine had an average increase in cycle length of nearly one day for each dose. Among women who received a two-dose vaccine, the first dose was associated with a 0.71-day increase in cycle length and the second dose with a 0.91-day increase. After adjustment for age, race and ethnicity, BMI, education, and other factors, the change in cycle length was still less than one day for each dose.

Receiving two vaccine doses within the same menstrual cycle increased the cycle length further—about two days on average. Women’s cycle lengths often fluctuate, and experts consider cycle variation of up to eight days to be normal. The longer menstrual cycles after vaccination decreased in subsequent cycles, suggesting they are likely temporary. The researchers did not find any effect of COVID-19 vaccination on the number of menstrual bleeding days.

Fertility rates down, death rates up as pandemic upends country’s demographics

The coronavirus pandemic has done a doozy on the country’s demographics, with fertility rates plummeting and death rates higher than expected for years to come, the Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.

Analysts are now figuring an additional 140,000 deaths per year, or about 4.5% extra, for the rest of this decade.

The fertility rate, meanwhile, has dropped to 1.6 births per woman. Even when it begins to rise again, it will plateau at 1.75 births — well below the 1.9 births CBO figured on before the pandemic, and far less than the 2.1-birth “replacement rate” needed to maintain the population.

Elon Musk has been talking about an ‘underpopulation crisis’ for years. So why did the U.S. birth rate rise 1% last year?

But a new report released Tuesday from the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that compiles health data and science, reveals that birth rates in the U.S. are not collapsing, and in fact rose 1% in 2021.

“The 1% increase in the number of births in 2021 was the first increase in births since 2014,” researchers for the National Vital Statistics System, the division within the NCHS that produces reports using birth data, wrote. The data, which is based on registered birth certificates, is provisional and could be subject to change.

Ist dies der Beginn der eigentlichen Katastrophe?

Nach vorläufigen Zahlen des Statistischen Bundesamtes (Destatis) kamen im ersten Quartal des Jahres in Deutschland 164.614 Kinder zur Welt. Im Vergleichszeitraum 2021 waren es 187.543 Lebendgeborene. Das entspricht einem Rückgang von über zwölf Prozent. Der April schaut auch nicht viel besser aus.

Ähnliche Entwicklungen werden aus der Schweiz, Schweden, Taiwan, dem UK, Slowenien und einzelnen US-Bundesstaaten gemeldet. Aber sind diese Daten verlässlich?

Die Lebendgeburtenrate ist eine der statistischen Größen, die in Industrieländern seit vielen Jahrzehnten – in Deutschland seit Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts – staatlich erhoben werden. Es handelt sich also um solide Informationen, die kaum als „fake news“ bezeichnet werden können.

Deutliche Zunahme der Sterblichkeitsrate in Österreich seit Impfbeginn

International sehen wir eine Zunahme der Sterblichkeitsraten in zeitlicher Nähe zu Impfkampagnen. Gleichzeitig gibt es eine Abnahme der Geburten, in einzelnen Ländern sogar um bis zu 27 Prozent. Sterblichkeit aus allen Gründen und Geburten sind die harte Währung der Demografie um die Wirksamkeit medizinischer Maßnahmen zu beurteilen. Und das Urteil fällt für die Corona Maßnahmen und die Impfkampagne katastrophal aus.

Women say they are having heavier and more painful PERIODS since getting their COVID-19 vaccines – as several claim it has also messed up their monthly cycle

(7 April 2021)

In February, officials looked at nearly 7,000 reactions reported to the agency’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

They found that nearly 80 percent of the reactions were reported by women, making them four times more likely to report a side effect than men.

This held true whether they were receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine or the Moderna vaccine, and is despite the fact that women are less likely to fall severely ill from COVID-19 than men are.

Women’s Periods May Be Late After Coronavirus Vaccination, Study Suggests

A study published on Thursday found that women’s menstrual cycles did indeed change following vaccination against the coronavirus. The authors reported that women who were inoculated had slightly longer menstrual cycles after receiving the vaccine than those who were not vaccinated.

Their periods themselves, which came almost a day later on average, were not prolonged, however, and the effect was transient, with cycle lengths bouncing back to normal within one or two months.

Of the 3,958 participants, 827 had what the study defines as a ‘completed pregnancy’.

The rest were either still pregnant or a follow-up had not yet been made by the time the preliminary analysis had been released.

Of the 827 women who had a completed pregnancy, 104 had a miscarriage.

The end of world population growth

02 August 2001

There has been enormous concern about the consequences of human population growth for the environment and for social and economic development. But this growth is likely to come to an end in the foreseeable future. Improving on earlier methods of probabilistic forecasting1, here we show that there is around an 85 per cent chance that the world’s population will stop growing before the end of the century. There is a 60 per cent probability that the world’s population will not exceed 10 billion people before 2100, and around a 15 per cent probability that the world’s population at the end of the century will be lower than it is today.

Neue Prognose: Weltbevölkerung schrumpft ab 2064

Während die Vereinten Nationen in ihren Prognosen über das Jahrhundert von einer Geburtenrate von 1,8 Kindern pro Frau ausgehen, wird sie laut den Analysen von Murray und seinen Kollegen auf unter 1,5 Kinder pro Frau fallen. Für eine stabile Bevölkerungszahl ist eine Geburtenrate von 2,1 Kindern pro Frau nötig.

Der Chefredakteur des Journals „The Lancet“, Richard Horton, erklärte, die Studie zeige eine radikale Verschiebung der geopolitischen Machtverhältnisse.

World population will start SHRINKING in 44 years: Major study claims humanity will peak at 9.7billion people in 2064 before dropping to 8.8bn by 2100 because of declining birth rates — and the UK will top out at 75million in 2063

This is projected to lead to a drop in the fertility rate of the world’s population, from an average of 2.37 children per woman — 237 children from every 100 women — to 1.66, or 166 children for every 100 women.

The fertility rate must be 2 for a population to remain stable and 2.1 for it to increase, the researchers said. To keep a community the same size a mother must, on average, not only replace herself but also the baby’s father.
