In a Lancet article coauthored with researchers from Imperial College London, the Department of Health and others, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has admitted that Britain is experiencing an ongoing excess deaths crisis
The article lacks a comphrehensive examination of the factors contributing to the fatalities, offering instead a brief commentary that merely skims the surface of the statistics and possible explanations.
According to The Daily Sceptic, the writers of the report are advocating for "well-timed and detailed assessments" to "illuminate patterns and thereby inform prevention and disease management initiatives." This is ironic, as we have been requesting the same information from them for over two years, given their organizations possess the necessary data and resources. The report also highlights the alarming number of excess deaths among young and middle-aged individuals every month in 2023, with the NHS being blamed for the majoroty of these fatalities. Additional experts interviewed by the Mail attribute the cause to lifestyle factors, including obesity and excessive alcohol consumption.
The factors attributed to the current situation include an aging population, the pandemic's lingering effects, disputed decline in statin prescriptions, increased healthcare waiting times, and personal choices regarding diet and drink. However, the rushed, experimental genetic vaccines, taken by many, are not considered a possible cause, despite clinical trials and studies linking them to an increased risk of serious adverse effects.
There has been an alarming increase in the number of unexpected deaths among middle-aged individuals in the UK, with experts attributing the rise to a combination of unhealthy lifestyle choices and the ongoing crisis in the National Health Service (NHS).
An extra 28,000 deaths, or more than 1,000 a week, were logged across the U.K. in the first six months of the year, according to fresh analysis of official figures.
The spike in mortality is especially stark among people aged 50 to 64, with 15% more dying than usual.
The majority of these fatalities were brought on by medical conditions that could have been avoided, such as heart disease, liver damage, and diabetes.
Experts pointed to Britain's ever-expanding waistline and alchol intake, as well as the beleaguered health service for failing to treat patients fast enough.
From January to June of this year, a total of 353,047 deaths were reported, according to information released by the Office for National Statistics.
The actual number exceeds expectations by 8.6%, amounting to 28,024 more than the projected 325,023 over the same period.
Excess deaths, sometimes known as extra deaths, are the number of deaths that are above the average for the same period in previous years.
According to distinct data from the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), their has been a 15% increase in the number of deaths among individuals aged 50-64 years old during the 12-month period ending in June, compared to the expected mortality rate for this age group.
There were 64,268 deaths among the group, compared to the 55,861 expected-- meaning there were an extra 8,407 fatalities in a year, or around 700 per month.
An analysis of the data, published in the Lancet, also noted that more people are dying at homes rather than hospitals.
During the pandemic, excess deaths were focused among older adults.
The authors noted a consistent trend of elevated mortality rates, particularly among adults in middle age and younger, which persists beyond the expected fluctuations in mortality.
"To effectively prevent and manage diseases, it's crucial to have a detailed and timely understanding of emerging trends. This requires granular and timely analyses to provide valuable insights for healthcare professionals and policymakers."
The report noted that cardiovascular disease was one of the leading causes of excess deaths, while liver disease, acute respiratory infections and diabetes were also fuelling the trend.
The claim that Covid vaccines are responsible for an increase in deaths has been circulating among anti-vaccination groups, but scientific evidence refutes this assertion. Experts maintain that the vaccines, which have saved countless lives worldwide, are not the cause of excess mortality.
Writing in the Times, Professor Yvonne Doyle, former Medical Director of the now-defunct Public Health England (PHE), blamed "an underlying pandemic of ill health".
She said the spike was driven by heart disease, diabetes and cirrhosis-- all of which are highly preventable and driven by lifestyle choices, such as an unhealthy diet and drinking too much alcohol.
"Unless access to preventive and early treatment improves, these causes of death will continue, and be joined by cancer," Professor Doyle warned.
She noted that the U.K. is faring worse that many other wealthy countries in the fight against poor health and criticised the Covid inquiry for focusing "solely on tactical decision-making by political leaders".
