“What I found was a clear signal, that something in 2021 changed the health of service members. …..
After querying all pilots across the DOD, for all-cause morbidity and mortality, I found a stunning increase in the number of reportable events, spiking from an average of 226 reportable events a year (2016-2019) to 4,059 reports in 2022. …..
The point is there is a statistically significant increase in death, permanent harm, or severe temporary harm in young healthy fit pilots ….. in the “post-glitch” DMED, the number of reportable events across the DOD had gone from a four-year average (2016-2019) of 40,813 to 110,000 in 2020 to over 200,000 in 2022.”

My take on it
Pilots are just another demographic. We see the same effects.
We also see the same weird response by the relevant institution – protracted and dismissive as to the issue, and critical and punitive as to the messenger.
