Last month on the Argentinian TV program “Buenos Días América” (BDA), something remarkable happened, reports 9 For News. Presenter Antonio Laje was talking to nutritionist Teresa Cóccaro when she suddenly became unwell and passed out on live television.
People rushed to her aid as the broadcast had to be stopped. Cóccaro, who prides herself on her excellent health, was quickly taken to the hospital.
Cóccaro was a regular on BDA as she advised people on nutrition each morning. On October 25, she was talking about candy, sugar, and sweeteners. After saying nothing happens when a kid goes to a birthday party and eats something with sweeteners, Teresa lost consciousness before her head and torso sank down to the table.
Malena de Los Ríos, who was sitting next to Cóccaro, noticed that she was not well and asked for help.
Cóccaro has since recovered and reports she had a vasovagal syncope, the most common form of fainting. Vasovagal syncope is caused by a general widening of the blood vessels by stimulation of the cranial nerve, causing a sharp drop in blood pressure. A syncope has nothing to do with nutrition, Teresa said.
The Covid vaccine, among others, can provoke a vasovagal syncope. All package inserts (made available online by both the FDA and vaccine companies) contain a section on Postmarketing Experience (Section 6.2) that lists adverse events “spontaneously reported in the US and other countries” after the vaccine’s licensure. Vasovagal syncope is listed as a possible “adverse event” in the package inserts under the nervous system section.
A Pfizer data dump from July revealed a 72-year-old man developed vasovagal syncope after receiving the vaccine, was transferred to the intensive care unit, and then withdrawn from their study. He died three days after being withdrawn.
In Japan, the most common adverse event reported in a study among vaccine recipients at a mass vaccination center was vasovagal syncope/presyncope. The occurrence rate of vasovagal syncope/presyncope was highest in the young population aged 16–29, but such age dependency was not apparent in acute allergic reactions.
