Perspective of the Increase of All-Cause Mortality and Sudden Adult Death Syndrome

by James Odell, OMD, ND, L.Ac.

"All-cause mortality"(ACM) is a term used by epidemiologists, or disease-tracking scientists, to refer to death from any cause. You usually hear it used in research articles, or when news organizations report on the latest study that promotes healthy lifestyle habits. We now hear ACM has exponentially increased over the last 2 years and escalated more since the Covid inoculation rollout in early 2021.

CDC Data - Total US Deaths (All-Cause Mortality):1

2013: 2,596,993

2014: 2,626,418

2015: 2,712,630

2016: 2,744,248

2017: 2,813,503

2018: 2,839,205

2019: 2,854,838

2020: 3,358,814

2021: 3,458,697

If we review the total deaths from the past 9 years, we can see that from 2020 to 2022 death rates increase significantly in the US. The death rate spike in 2020 – approximately 835 deaths per 100,000 people – was the sharpest increase in more than a century since the CDC began tracking the relevant data. Heart disease and cancer persisted as the leading causes of death in 2020. Nine out of the top ten leading causes of death in the US remained the same. Allegedly, Covid-19, or some virus (influenza), was also a part of the increase. Of course, many deaths due to accidents, cardiac arrest, and cancer were classified and recorded as Covid deaths in 2020. Yet what is concerning is the constant rise in deaths from non-covid causes. The impact that the “pandemic” has had on all aspects of individual health is noteworthy and deserves more attention.

2020 began with lockdowns in March resulting in mentally and physically harmful social isolation with crippling economic destruction. Mainstream media constantly propagated worldwide fear, with the death counter displayed on many news channels. Diminished access to medical care and medication, as well as mental health services, contributed to the rise in non-Covid deaths. Many necessary surgeries and medical screenings were postponed. Suicides skyrocketed. CDC preliminary data showed that drug overdose deaths topped 100,000 for the first time ever during the one-year period ending April 2021.

Moreover, many unnecessary hospitalizations ended with death from toxic therapies such as Remdesivir when most could have been prevented with early intervention of safer protocols. Deaths occurred in many patients who received Remdesivir (25%). The Remdesivir treatment was established in US hospitals under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci. It was after the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the use of Remdesivir on May 1, 2020, that America suffered the highest death rate from COVID-19 in the globe.2

Overall deaths in the US in 2020 were more than 85% higher than in places such as Germany, Israel, and Denmark after adjusting for population size. Deaths in the U.S. were 29% higher than even in Sweden, which ignored everything for so long. Sweden made a point of refusing to order strict social restrictions and never went into a full lockdown and didn’t use Remdesivir.

The coronavirus diagnosis was “verified” by PCR testing that now the CDC admits the original PCR tests could not detect the difference between coronavirus and influenza. Interestingly, 2020 and 2021 were years influenza was almost non-existent.

The CDC published an announcement on its website saying that the agency will no longer honor the emergency use authorization of the PCR test for COVID testing beginning January 1, 2022. They are now encouraging the use of another COVID test to replace the original. According to the CDC, it will withdraw its request to the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

They further wrote, "The CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses," in the new guidance. "Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season."3

Much about the “pandemic” and CDC-recommended treatments remains highly questionable. After the rollout of the mRNA Covid experimental inoculation in January 2021, ACM continued to increase but covid-related deaths dropped. Thus, deaths were recorded as non-covid related and most involved cardiovascular events - strokes, heart attacks, venous thrombosis, arrhythmias, and myocarditis. This increase in all-cause deaths coincides with European figures. Between April 2021 and April 2022, the EU recorded two waves of excess all-cause mortality, with the peaks respectively in April 2021 (20.9 %), and November 2021 (26.4 %).4

Against this backdrop, many citizens have expressed concerns about thousands of reported deaths associated with and/or caused by Covid inoculations. (See VAERS, EudraVigilance.) After all, these were new experimental technologies, especially for the mRNA delivery system that targeted the spike protein. The viral vector, single shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been “paused” early on. It was approved and then again “paused” for injection. News reports indicate Johnson & Johnson recently ceased production. Blood clots, myocarditis, pericarditis, and heart conditions began surfacing as more people were vaccinated. Stories of extremely healthy athletes collapsing or even dying appeared. Then there were thousands of stories of otherwise healthy citizens dying post-jab, most censored on social and mainstream media.

According to figures collected by the American Institute for Economic Research, there was a very revealing interval from week 10 (March 7) 2021 to week 24 (June 13) 2021. Deaths in the 85+ age group are lower than average during this interval. Total deaths for weeks 10-24 averaged 248,536 during 2015-2019 but were 242,372 during 2021. However, for the 25-44 age group, total deaths for weeks 10-24 averaged 38,955 during 2015-2019 but were 54,789 (40.6 percent higher!) during 2021.5 Reported daily Covid deaths (7-day moving average) in the US were declining from 1,689 on March 7, 2021, to 387 on June 13, 2021.6

This time period was the decline phase of the winter outbreak that peaked around January 18, 2021, and reached a nadir around July 8, 2021, allegedly due to the “Delta surge”. One cannot plausibly attribute the above-average deaths for the 25-44 age group during this time period to Covid. So, what was responsible for these deaths? What was this younger age group exposed to to cause such an increase in deaths? The most realistic and obvious cause was (is) a mass inoculation program that involves an experimental, never before used mRNA genetic-biologic agent injected into millions of people, young and old.

Statistics show there is a very significant above-average number of deaths across the US that cannot be attributed to Covid. Deaths attributed to malignant neoplasms were average during the entire pandemic period. Although there was an increase in deaths from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in 2020 after the onset of the pandemic, this was less apparent in 2021. There was an increase in deaths attributed to other select causes (which include suicides and drug overdoses), but the magnitude was much smaller than what is seen in the circulatory diseases category. Deaths attributed to circulatory diseases include strokes, heart attacks, and heart failure (including myocarditis). The circulatory diseases category is the most important category for excess deaths during 2020 and 2021. Additionally, according to VAERS, most deaths post vaccine have occurred within a 72-hour window.7

Coronaviruses manifest as a respiratory disease that can lead to respiratory distress with hypoxemia (low blood oxygen) and respiratory failure in severe cases. During the period of interest between week 10 and week 24 of 2021, Covid related deaths were steadily declining, and deaths attributed to respiratory diseases were below average, but deaths due to circulatory diseases were significantly above average.

The Life Insurance Sector Reports a Recent Significant Increase in ACM

OneAmerica is a $100 billion insurance company that has had its headquarters in Indianapolis since 1877. The company has approximately 2,400 employees and sells life insurance, including group life insurance to employers in the state. Recently the CEO of the OneAmerica Insurance Company, Scott Davison, revealed that mortality in the 18-64 age group was 40 percent higher during the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2021 than during pre-pandemic levels. For reference, the CEO indicated that a 10 percent increase would have been a 1-in-200-year event. Furthermore, most of the deaths were not attributed to Covid.8

We’re seeing right now the highest death rates we’ve ever seen in the history of this business, and it’s not just at OneAmerica. The data is consistent across every player in the business,” said Mr. Davison. Most of the claims for deaths being filed are not classified as Covid-19 deaths, Davison said. "What the data is showing to us is that the deaths that are being reported as Covid deaths greatly understate the actual death losses among working-age people from the pandemic. It may not all be Covid on their death certificate, but deaths are up just huge, huge numbers.”

The OneAmerica insurance company serves a subset of the US population. Davison said, “Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a 1-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic levels, so, 40% is just unheard of.” The entire life insurance industry experienced the largest year-over-year increase in payouts since the 1918 influenza pandemic.

OneAmerica was not alone in these historic life insurance payouts. Lincoln National, America’s 5th largest Insurance Company paid out 163% more for working-aged people 18 to 64 in 2021. The company claims these are non-Covid or pandemic-related deaths, but deaths by other causes – cardiovascular disease primarily.9

Funeral Stocks are Increasing in Value

Funeral stocks have been stable over the last few decades and have not been considered to be significant “growth stocks” or given the green light by stock advisors as a “buy” until now. That stock scenario greatly changed in 2021. Since the beginning of November 2021, the industry’s consensus earnings estimate for 2022 has jumped 15.8%.

Let’s look at the financials of two of the larger funeral companies.

Service Corporation International (SCI) is a provider of deathcare products and services, with a network of funeral homes and cemeteries. Its funeral service and cemetery operations consist of funeral service locations, cemeteries, crematoria, and related businesses. Shares of SCI have gained 33.7% in the past year (see chart below). More recently SCI shares have increased 11.5% from April 2022 to June 2022 (three months) compared with the industry’s rise of 4.3%.

Price and Consensus: SCI

Carriage Services, Inc. (CSV) provides funeral and cemetery services, and merchandise in the United States. It operates through two segments, Funeral Home Operations, and Cemetery Operations. Shares of CVS have soared about 53% over the past year.

Price and Consensus: CSV

With death being inevitable and exponentially increasing, there is a dramatic increase in demand for funeral services. John O’Looney, director of Milton Keynes Family Funeral Services, has been very vocal about the nature of the dead arriving at his funeral homes.10

In the United Kingdom, Mr. O’Looney and his colleagues noticed that for the first year (2020), there were no surplus deaths at all and if anything, fewer deaths. Those who died allegedly from the coronavirus, O’Looney asserts, appear to have succumbed to a drug called Midazolam given to nursing home residents. The funeral home director is not alone in his suspicion.11

But after the vaccine was introduced to his area in January 2021, Mr. O’Looney said that the calls made to his funeral home soared, going up “300 percent”. “I’ve never seen a death rate like it in 15 years. Initially, the deaths were all exclusively cared homes,” Mr. O’Looney said. But after the rollout of the mRNA injection, the deaths were no longer exclusively from nursing homes, and the ages of the dead varied significantly.

In one podcast, as an example of the trend he sees from the Covid inoculation, Mr. O’Looney said, “I’ve got a 32-year-old, a 33-year-old, and a 28-year-old in my care at the moment. They’re all jab recipients and they all died unexpectedly and suddenly. The majority of deaths appear to be blood clots (heart attack and stroke) and organ failure”. O’Looney described one woman who passed away who was “in her fifties” without health issues, and “super fit” who “goes to the gym every day, runs six kilometers”. The funeral director said that the woman was given a booster and “died of liver failure the following week.”

Athletes Injured and Dying

Over the past year, there have been numerous stories of athletes suddenly collapsing on sports fields or during athletic competitions. This was particularly evident in sports that involve vigorous cardiovascular activity such as soccer, basketball, and tennis. While the majority appear to be male, it has happened to females as well. A new website has been documenting unexpected injuries or deaths, possibly linked to the Covid-19 inoculations. is presently showing 649 athlete cardiac arrests and 404 deaths following “vaccination”. The website describes Goodscience as:12

“We are a small team of investigators, news editors, journalists, and truth seekers, now backed up by others, who are discovering pieces of information that we can investigate. It doesn’t really matter who we are. What really matters is that we care, carrying on an investigation and we’re presenting the evidence we’ve found, almost all of it documented in mainstream media publications.

It is certainly not normal for so many predominately young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this has been happening in increasing numbers shortly after they got a Covid inoculation. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a Covid jab, the sheer numbers point to it as the only obvious cause.

German Study of All-Cause Mortality and Covid “Vaccination” Rates

The same trend of an increase in ACM is occurring in Europe. A recent study of excess mortality causes came from Professor Dr. Rolf Steyer,13 a full Professor for Research Methodology, and Dr. Gregor Kappler,14 an independent consultant, data scientist, programmer, and researcher. They studied all the sixteen states of Germany and compared the average death rates from week 36 to week 40 from 2016 to 2020 to the same period in 2021.15, 16

Here is how they calculated the excess mortality.

  1. Step 1. They averaged the death rates in week 36 to week 40 for 2016 – 2020.

  2. Step 2. They compared the value of step 1 to the average death rate from week 36 to week 40 of 2021.

  3. Step 3. The value of 2021 is divided by the average of 2016-2020.

  4. Step 4. Multiply the result of step 3 by 100.

    • If the result of step 4 is 100, there are no excess deaths or under mortality.

    • If the result is more than 100, then there are excess deaths.

  5. Step 5. They calculated the correlation between “vaccination” rate and excess mortality.


The table below shows the mortality in 2021 relative to the average of 2016:2020 among 16 states in Germany. The size of the blue dots reflects the population size. The x-axis (horizontal) is the “vaccination” rate. HB is the most “vaccinated”, and SN is the least “vaccinated”.

Vaccination Rate

The y-axis is the death ratio between 2021 and the 2016-2020 average. All sixteen states showed a higher death rate for 2021 compared to the past five years. According to this figure, Saxony (SN) and Thuringia (TH) perform best in current excess mortality. They also have the lowest “vaccination” rates. If the inoculations are safe and effective, the numbers should be 100 or less.

Interpretation of the Result

The following is from the study. Emphasis added. The correlation is + 0.31, which is amazingly high and especially in an unexpected direction. It should be negative so that one could say: The higher the “vaccination” rate, the lower the excess mortality. However, the opposite is the case, and this urgently needs to be clarified. Excess mortality can be observed in all 16 states.

The number of Covid deaths reported by the RKI (Robert Koch Institute) in the period under consideration consistently represents only a relatively small part of mortality and, above all, cannot explain the critical facts: The higher the vaccination rate, the higher the excess mortality. The most direct explanation is that complete “vaccination” increases the likelihood of death.

FDA Report Finds All-Cause Mortality Higher among Vaccinated

According to a recently released FDA report, the clinical trials of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine found that the all-cause mortality rate of the vaccinated group was higher than that of the control group, months after the trials were launched.

According to the report, which was released by the FDA to provide background information on its August 2021 decision to grant full approval for the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine after offering limited emergency authorization of use last December, six months after the vaccine’s clinical trial began, the total number of deaths reported in the vaccinated group was nearly one-quarter higher than the number of deaths in the placebo group.17

While Pfizer in July released partial data on the outcomes from the six-month assessment ending March 13th, the new FDA report includes more comprehensive data and shows a significantly higher number of all-cause fatalities among the vaccinated cohort.

The Pfizer report in late July of this year showed effectively equal all-cause fatality rates between the vaccine and placebo cohorts six months after the tests were conducted, with 15 deaths among the nearly 22,000 vaccine recipients, versus 14 deaths among the nearly 22,000 placebo recipients. Most of the total 29 deaths in both groups were not related to the coronavirus; of the deaths in both groups, three fatalities were listed as being related to the virus; two in the placebo group and one in the vaccinated group.

The FDA report, however, revealed a larger number of deaths by all causes in both groups, with 17 deaths among the control group and 21 in the vaccinated cohort.

The relative difference in all-cause deaths between the two cohorts amounts to 23.5%, though the absolute number of deaths was small – 38 total for all participants in the trial.

The report went on to say that following the issuance of the emergency use authorization in December 2020, a number of cases of rare heart conditions, including myocarditis and pericarditis, were reported following vaccination, leading the FDA and CDC to identify "serious risks for myocarditis and pericarditis following administration of" the Pfizer vaccine. The risk factor appears to be higher in males under 40, the report added, with boys ages 12 to 17 being especially at risk.

Meanwhile in the United Kingdom

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognized national statistical institute of the UK. It is responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population, and society at national, regional, and local levels. The ONS dataset on deaths in England by vaccination status contains a large amount of data on age-standardized mortality rates for deaths by vaccination status between 1 January 2021 and 31 January 2022.18

In viewing their tables, what immediately catches the eye when looking at this data is the mortality rate per 100,00 person-years among 18-39-year-olds in the month of January 2021. The figures show the death rate among the unvaccinated this month was 67.7 deaths per 100,000 person-years. Whilst the death rate among the partly vaccinated (at least 21 days ago) was 119.9 deaths per 100,000 years. This shows that vaccinated 18-39-year-olds were more likely to die in January 2021, suggesting the Covid-19 injections increased the risk of death or played a part in causing death.

This shows that vaccinated 18-39-year-olds were more likely to die in January 2021, suggesting the Covid-19 injections increased the risk of death or played a part in causing death.


We have also been living through the most massive, globally coordinated propaganda and censorship campaign in the history of humanity. All major mass media and social media technology companies have coordinated to stifle and suppress any discussion of the risks of the genetic “vaccines” and or alternative early treatments. The U.S. media has been just as eerily silent about the upward 30,000 deaths and well over 1.5 million reported adverse events (VAERS), from the covid vaccine, more than all reported deaths and adverse events for all vaccines in recorded history.

There is a very significant above-average number of deaths occurring across the US that cannot solely be attributed to the coronavirus. There was an increase in deaths attributed to select causes (which include suicides and drug overdoses, medical mismanagement), but the magnitude was much smaller than what is now reported in the circulatory diseases category. Deaths attributed to circulatory diseases include strokes, heart attacks, and heart failure (including myocarditis). The circulatory diseases category is clearly the most important category for excess deaths during 2020, 2021, and up to the present. There was no natural calamity, mass terrorist attack, or kinetic war within the US in 2021 that killed millions. There was only one new thing -the Covid-19 experimental gene therapy.

If this increasing trend of ACM among the Covid jabbed continues to escalate, then we must assume these experimental genetic products so aggressively promoted have not only failed but are contributing to a massive loss of life. Furthermore, this implies that the federal workplace “vaccine” mandates have driven what appears to be a true crime against humanity. Federal workers, doctors, nurses, and soldiers have been forced to accept a toxic inoculation that may catastrophically reduce the population of our first-line care providers.

The mRNA inoculations led to the production of spike protein by host cells and beginning week 10- 2021 to the present have seen the mass introduction of mRNA injections to the US public. The appropriate method to assess new biological drugs, such as vaccine efficacy and safety is ACM. Deaths from all causes are compared between the vaccine group and a control unvaccinated group. This method has not been used. Rather, the CDC and FDA determine on a case-by-case basis whether reported adverse events can be attributed to the vaccine.

When the Covid “vaccines” were tested in randomized clinical trials, those trials were not designed to see the effect on overall mortality. Knowing the effects of the new vaccines on all-cause mortality is of utmost public health importance, especially when there is a plan to give the jabs repeatedly. The government tracking systems have been inefficient at best, as many reactions are underreported. When the entire US population has a significant number of events compared to a historic basis, one must look for the common denominators in the people with the events.

A Side Note:

The author Dr. Vernon Coleman, MB, ChB, DSc. has completed a short list of all the known possible explanations for Sudden Adult Death Syndrome:19

  1. Eating too many marmalade sandwiches.

  2. Stepping on cracks between paving slabs.

  3. Not stepping on cracks between paving slabs.

  4. Putting too much tomato sauce/ketchup on meals.

  5. Not saying your prayers.

  6. Allowing yourself to be injected with an experimental, inadequately tested, pseudo-vaccine known to cause myocarditis, encephalitis, convulsions, strokes, Guillain-Barre syndrome, meningitis, pericarditis, bleeding, clots, joint pain, and many other disorders.
