From Reddit:

"1) It's a non-peer-reviewed conference abstract.

2) It's a single author. That's weird, and rare, considering a single person certainly didn't do all the work this abstract describes themselves

3) The single author is Steven Gundry, a "functional" medicine quack renowned for promoting lectin-avoidance diets as cure-alls.

4) It's absolutely impossible to ascertain the methods here.

Because the abstract is terribly written, it's almost impossible to work out what they're actually trying to report

I'm not a cardiologist, but from what I can tell and my general impression the PULS test is not a validated biomarker. The website gives no publications. The papers referenced in the FAQ are small and terribly cited. The test is marketed by numerous natural health websites. "

From the abstract:

"We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."

I hope they get more data, having an increased risk for 2.5 months (the limit of what they tested) is very different than a few years or a lifetime.
