Anti-vaccine activists are using faulty data to claim cardiac arrests are increasing in athletes. They’re not.

The genes are not "rewired" but have different phenotypic expression. It's an attention getting statement on his part, but a pretty common thing. The interesting part is the increase in pro-clotting factor which is what folks have been saying recently: there may be some micro-clotting going on.

Comment from Walgreens earnings call today:

A the study from the Commonwealth Fund showing that total industry efforts have prevented 18.5 million hospitalizations, saved 3.2 million patient lives, and prevented 120 million COVID infections. This adds up to an estimated over $1 trillion in medical cost savings through the U.S. vaccination program.

Yes, the "letters to the editor" wasn't literally everything that anyone wanted to post. Having an editor is a good thing, although those not chosen might claim bias/politics/racism/etc. And not always incorrectly.
And, there's no money in critical thinking (generally). Attention getting -> clicks -> advertiser dollars -> profit!
Nowhere in there was a mention of quality.

It has become infinitely easier to find “support” for one’s preexisting belief.

Instead of culling facts/evidence and reaching a conclusion based on those facts/evidence, more and more people seemingly go out searching for anything they believe supports the conclusion they already have reached. Then they demand that those who disagree with that conclusion prove it is not “possible,” thereby switching the burden of proof in a manner that often is tantamount to demanding that those who disagree  prove a negative. Couple all that with the allegations of a large and sinister conspiracy and we  indeed have arrived at the crux of the problem.
