Recent Kawasaki Disease-Like Inflammatory Condition in the News

You may have heard about the children recently who have been suffering from some sort of inflammatory issues, in which the condition has been compared to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome. The children have also suffered from multisystem organ failure. Well, it appears that some of the same suspects who have been exaggerating the seriousness of COVID-19 and participating in falsely inflating the COVID death numbers, and engaging in panic and fear-mongering, have been trying to tie those children’s inflammatory conditions to COVID-19.

There is a terrific article on the Children’s Health Defense website which goes into all the aspects of this so-far unexplained children’s inflammatory phenomenon. The article discusses Kawasaki disease and the possibility of vaccines being associated with that, and asks some important questions, including these that particularly interested me:

3. Did the children have any recent exposure to environmental toxins, including but not limited to mercury? A study of KD just published in northern Italy—the same highly air-polluted region heavily affected by COVID-19—reported a strong correlation between “the frequency of KD onsets and environmental factors,” including air pollutants; the study’s methodology did not permit the investigators to pinpoint which particulates might be responsible. U.S.-based studies have likewise linked KD to airborne environmental triggers. Could the same hold true for the “Kawasaki-like” illness being attributed to COVID-19?

4. What kinds of toxins might children be overexposed to while cooped up at home without “fresh air or sunlight”? Given that KD and toxic shock syndrome have both been linked to toxins, this is a question that warrants answers.

5. Is anyone assessing affected children’s recent vaccination history? As the large body of research linking KD and vaccines suggests, a child’s vaccination experiences—such as the timing of prior vaccination, the specific vaccines administered, whether the child received multiple vaccines all at once, and whether they received thimerosal-containing vaccines such as influenza vaccines—can provide important clues. Examining children’s prior (and possibly recent) influenza vaccine history is particularly pertinent because a 2018 CDC-supported study found an increased risk of acute respiratory illness (non-influenza) in influenza-vaccinated children compared to children who had not received a flu vaccine. In adults, a study published by the U.S. military in early 2020 also highlighted this issue, showing that soldiers who had received an influenza vaccine had a 36% increased risk of subsequent coronavirus infection. As studies are also proving that unvaccinated children are healthier, perhaps we should also be asking whether any KD or “PIMS” even occurs in unvaccinated children.

6. Could components of vaccines be functioning as superantigens, triggering “an unusual degree of immune activation”? Scientists who have studied the “distinctive immune system characteristics” of children with KD acknowledge that the “antigenic stimulation” set in motion by vaccines and other biologics has the capacity to create “immunologic interference.”
