Military medical whistleblowers have come forward with a trove of data on vaccine safety that they claim is the most accurate available.
On Monday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) hosted "COVID-19: A Second Opinion," a livestreamed discussion panel featuring world-renowned doctors and medical experts who provided an alternative take on the public health response to COVID-19.
One of the panelists was Ohio attorney Thomas Renz, who is representing clients who have brought lawsuits against the COVID vaccine mandates, The Blaze reported.
Renz's whistleblower clients found information on common vaccine injuries in DOD medical billing data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED).
The DMED is the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch's (AFHSB) "web-based tool to remotely query de-identified active component personnel and medical event data contained within the Defense Medical Surveillance System (DMSS)."
The database contains every International Classification of Diseases (ICD) medical billing code for all medical diagnoses submitted by the military for medical insurance billing.
In sworn statements that Renz intends to submit in court, three military doctors — Samuel Sigoloff, Peter Chambers, and Theresa Long — detailed the information they found.
Renz said that according to the data the doctors found, there was a 300% increase in miscarriages in the military during the first 10 months of 2021 over the five-year average.
From 2016 through 2020, there were 1,499 codes for miscarriages each year, TheBlaze reported. From January through October 2021, there were 4,182.
The doctors analyzing the data queried the numbers for hundreds of codes throughout the five-year time period. The codes that were examined are generally for ailments that have been established as potential adverse effects of the vaccines in medical literature, according to the news outlet.
During 2020, the number of miscarriage codes dipped slightly below the five-year average at 1,477. But the billing codes were not sufficently below the average in any particular category to suggest that a 2020 decrease in doctor's visits during pandemic lockdowns accounted for the subsequent increase in 2021 diagnoses.
While the database includes ICD codes for both military hospital visits and ambulatory visits, the data Renz presented is from ambulatory diagnosis data.
Johnson mentioned during the panel that data on myocarditis cases appears to have been doctored, as the whistleblowers found that the number of codes for the diagnosis was about 28 times higher in August 2021 than when they checked again this month, where it was only two times higher.
"[T]here appears to be doctoring of the data," Johnson said. "Now, my staff has already sent — this morning, we sent a record preservation letter to the Department of Defense to try and protect this data."
According to the data found by the military doctors, there was also a nearly 300% increase in cancer diagnoses, from a 38,700-per-year average to 114,645 in 2021.
For neurological issues diagnosis codes, there was a more than 1,000% increase in 2021 over the five-year average, from 82,000 to 863,000. Renz noted during the panel that neurological issues "would affect our pilots."
"Our soldiers are being experimented on, injured, and sometimes, possibly, killed," he added.
Additional data The Blaze received from Renz showed: a 269% increase in myocardial infarction, 291% increase in Bell’s palsy, 156% increase in congenital malformations of military members' children, 471% increase in female infertility, and 467% increase in pulmonary embolisms.
The news outlet reported that one of the sworn declarations from one of the military doctors said, "It is my professional opinion that the major increases (sic) incidences of the above discussed instances of miscarriages, cancers, and disease were due to COVID-19 'vaccinations.'"
The codes for the diagnoses are not representative of the number of people who were diagnosed with these ailments, but simply the total number of diagnoses, as one person could have multiple ailments.
The Department of Defense had not responded to a request for comment as of this article's publication deadline.
