Ayup. It;s definitely the vaccines.

What a stupidly provocative article. Yes, the source is unknown, but they're fairly sure it's a prion disease, similar to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Of known prion disease, and they have not yet ruled it out.

Here's a more detailed article that is less ridiculous.

Look at a map of New Brunswick. Chart between Moncton and...let's say Bathurst. That's the Acadian Peninsula, and the range in which these have been occurring.

My mom's family is from Richibucto. Right smack in the middle of that range.

I dont think its the vaccine. But as someone who has seen mysterious and serious health changes just after having suffered from covid Id lean the direction of the virus itself.

I went in for a full medical checkup just a week before catching it. In fact I think at my doctor is likely where I caught it.

Within 2 weeks of "getting over" covid I was still having trouble breathing. Which even now is still an on and off issue. Ever since then also my iron has skyrocketed to levels so high I have to go in every few weeks and let them take blood because nothing else is working to lower said iron. Even taking as much as they can its still much higher than normal. Ive done all I can to eliminate ingesting foods etc that would increase it.  My white blood cells are insanely low. All liver functions seem normal. Size etc. No fat. But my billirubin is so high my piss looks like coffee. No hepatitis. No other jaundice like symptoms. Also I have always been able to sleep well. Now even with the strongest meds they dare give me I am lucky to get 4 hrs solid sleep at a time. I am now beginning to have episodes of memory and confusion problems. I went to walk outside to my shop. Stopped halfway and stood there for like 3 mins according to my security camera. But I dont recall anything but a fleeting second of "ok why am i headed to the shop? OH YES I need a screwdriver" and to me it was as fast as you read it. Not nearly 3 mins of standing in one spot. I got into my truck last week to go check my mail. Its a quarter mile down my driveway to my box. I made it to the school I work at 17 miles away before I realized that 1...I was supposed to be checking the mail not going to work and 2...school isnt open on Saturday anyway.

I have 3 co workers who have retired this last year because they or their spouse have had similar issues. All under 60yrs old. All with no prior history of issues like these. I am not going to lie and say Im no scared. But have come to the face the realization I will likely be worm dirt much sooner than I ever expected to. I always figured id make it at least to my 70s. My large family has a strong history of adults living past 80 even 90. Both my grandparents on both sides lived to near 100. And here I sit thinking I wont make 54

That's really not in the spirit of a contagion, though, is it?

Ingestion implies poisoning, really.

They didn't show CJD, but it could theoretically be one never seen before due to mutation.

They started documenting cases in 2015.

It's not even remotely Covid related in any way or possible regard.

Whaddu expect from a wholesale article from the New York Times, repackaged as Yahoo News?

But aside from the tabloid claims, there could be a concern that FDA approval for prior drugs may need a redo after the COVID experience.

After all, COVID was invented by the alcoholic beverage industry to turn alcohol into a hallucinogen and thus compete with marijuana.  Like they wouldn't.

I hope your family isn't touched by whatever this is.

The clustering of weird health issues has been key in finding some messed up stuff over the years (Love Canal comes to mind as the most horrifying example).

My dad was having worsening memory problems, turned out to be caused (at least partially anyway) from a chronic subdural hematoma (slow-growing blood clot in his head resulting from a fall). People with this generally don't remember falling.

it was only discovered after he was hospitalized after falling on his head 3 weeks ago (he's expected to recover) - its quite possible that the chronic hematoma contributed to his accident.
