Fibrous clots found in corpses

Several embalmers across the country have been observing many large,
and sometimes very long, "fibrous" and rubbery clots inside the
corpses they treat, and are speaking out about their findings.
Numerous embalmers from different states confirmed to The Epoch
Times that they have been seeing these strange clots, starting from
either 2020 or 2021.
It's not yet known if the cause of the new clot phenomenon is
COVID-19, vaccines, both, or something different.
The Epoch Times received videos and photos of the anomalous
clots, but could not upload them due to the level of gore.

"We have tested one
of the clots from embalmer Richard Hirschman, via ICP-MS. Also
tested side by side, live human blood from an unvaccinated
person," Adams told The Epoch Times.
He found that the clots
are lacking key elements present in healthy human blood, such as
iron, potassium, and magnesium, suggesting that they are formed from
something other than blood.
Adams is joining analytic forces with more doctors and plan to
invest out of their own pocket in equipment in order to further
determine their composition and probable causation.
The string-like structures differ in size, but the longest can be as
long as a human leg and the thickest can be as thick as a pinky

Richard Hirschman, a licensed funeral director and embalmer
in Alabama, recalled that he has been in the trade since the
tragedy of 9/11.
"Prior to 2020, 2021,
we probably would see somewhere between 5 to 10 percent of the
bodies that we would embalm [having] blood clots," Hirschman
told The Epoch Times.
"We are familiar with what blood clots are, and we've had to
deal with them over time," he said.
He says that now, 50
percent to 70 percent of the bodies he sees have clots.
"For me to embalm a
body without any clots, kind of like how it was in the day,
prior to all of this stuff … It's rare," Hirschman said.
"The exception is to embalm a body without clots," he noted.
The chart below shows the differences between the blood of the
unvaccinated and the clot tested with ICP-MS, according to Adams's
the key elemental markers of human blood such as iron are
missing in the clot (which is just at 4.4 percent of blood).
Similar story with magnesium, potassium, and zinc. These are clear
markers for human blood. Live human blood will always have high
iron, or the person would be dead.

a cardiologist who is familiar with clots, told The Epoch Times:

that in fact there was no blood flow in these vessels.

to have to drain the blood via multiple points instead of a single
'Never Seen' Before
"In 20 years of
embalming, I had never seen these white fibrous structures in
the blood, nor have others in my field.
In the past
year, I have seen these strange clots in many different
individuals, and it doesn't seem to matter what they die of,
they often have similar substances in their blood.
This makes me
very concerned because if something is wrong in the blood, it
begs the question: is something causing people to die
prematurely?" Hirschman said.
"As the summer
[of 2021] went on, COVID deaths were on the decline, but these
clots were increasing in number.
My suspicion is
vaccine may be the cause of these strange clots. I
realize that I am not a doctor nor am I a scientist, but I do
know what blood looks like and I am very familiar with the
embalming process that I have been doing for two decades.
I do not know
100 percent what causes these clots, but I do know from my
experience and through speaking with
several other embalmers and funeral directors none of us had
seen this strange clotting before."
Hirschman sent the
clots to a few pathologists and claims that some of them have
"overlooked" them, probably due to fear of retaliation.
He has embalmed
thousands of bodies and is very familiar with blood, and he feels
that the blood of most of the bodies he has seen in the last two
years "has changed."

afraid to lose his job because he's a trade embalmer and not
employed by a funeral home, but is also cautious not to reveal where
exactly he works.

individuals I embalmed and saw these changes were over the age

their early fifties.

contribute to these diseases, it is unlikely and if so the

that of COVID-19 disease." Thorp said.
