A recent medical study indicated that people who have refused to get vaccinated for COVID-19 are more likely to to get into traffic accidents than their vaccinated counterparts.
The American Journal of Medicine published a Canadian study that found the unvaxxed were 72% more inclined to be involved in a serious fender bender that required those involved to receive emergency medical care.
More than 11 million people participated in the study, 84% who had been vaccinated, and 16% who had abstained from getting inoculated.
The group got into a total of 6682 traffic accidents in 2021, with 1682 or 25% of the crashes belonging to the unvaccinated participants.
Because the unvaccinated were only a small percentage of the study group, but were responsible for a quarter of all the serious accidents.
Scientists concluded that they were at a “72% increased relative risk” of smashing into another car.
They posited that the correlation exists because the unvaxxed have “a distrust of government or belief in freedom,” that resulted in hazardous behavior behind the wheel.
It was also hypothesized that potential causes of “vaccine hesitancy and risky driving” could be a result of “faith in natural protection, antipathy toward regulation,” and exposure to misinformation, amongst other personal beliefs.
The study’s author’s noted that the “subjective unknowns” require more research.
Though they indicated that politics could be to blame for vaccine hesitancy.
“Alternative factors could include political identity, negative past experiences, limited health literacy, or social networks that lead to misgivings around public health guidelines.”
Researchers inflamed the internet when the insinuated that the unvaccinated should have to pay higher car insurance premiums.
“The observed risks might also justify changes to driver insurance policies in the future,” the study read.
“Our theory is that adults who do not follow public recommendations may also not follow the rules of the road,” said Dr. Donald Redelmeier, the study’s lead researcher.
He remarked that the traffic risk correlated with vaccine hesitancy, was higher than the crash danger associated with young male drivers and people suffering from sleep apnea.
Redelmeier outraged the internet when he suggested that “it might be a wise maneuver if automobile insurance companies involved and they decide to give a 5% discount for individuals who’ve got proof of vaccination.”
“This was nothing more than to disparage people unvaccinated for Covid,” one person responded to Redelmeier’s remarks.
“He claims people who ignore public health recommendations also tend to ignore the rules of the road. Absolute insanity.”
“They’ll do anything to demonize the unvaccinated,” another tweeted.
“They can link car crashes to vax status… But are still baffled by the cause of increase of strokes, heart attacks, myocarditis since the 2021 rollout?” Someone added.
Canada was the center of another medical scandal recently, when their Veterans Affairs office offered to help one of their Paralympians commit state assisted suicide.
52-year-old veteran, Christine Gauthier, who competed as a heavyweight power lifter in the 2016 Paralympics at Rio De Janeiro, wanted the VA to provide her with a wheelchair lift in her home.
Instead the VA offered to provide her with a medically-assisted suicide kit, which the country approved in 2016, and recently expanded to include people who suffer from disabilities and extreme pain.
“I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying,” Gauthier told the House of Commons veterans affairs committee.
According to Fox News, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the government was investigating the incident.
“We are changing protocols to ensure what should seem obvious to all of us: that it is not the place of Veterans Affairs Canada, who are supposed to be there to support those people who stepped up to serve their country, to offer them medical assistance in dying,” he remarked.
