Do Covid Vaccines Cause Miscarriages? No They Don’t! Fact-checking Three Rumors of the Week
Do Covid-19 vaccines cause miscarriages? Has Walmart teamed up with Litecoin? Is Insta blocking my posts? Read on to get the final word on our three rumors of the week.
Do Covid-19 vaccines cause miscarriages in pregnant women?
This classic rumor has been around ever since vaccines started coming out. Recently, it’s been rearing its head. . . not unlike a screaming baby.
It’s probably up there with the most pernicious and damaging Covid-19 rumors, particularly because it’s so understandable that expectant mothers and fathers will fall for it out of fear — which makes those who write and spread this sort of thing all the more awful!
Our verdict for ‘covid-19 vaccines cause miscarriages’ is unequivocally FALSE. A verdict shared by all reputable science bodies around the world.

Has Walmart Teamed up with Litecoin to Accept the Cryptocurrency in Its Stores?
Why on earth would the huge corporation, Walmart, team up with the little-known cryptocurrency, Litecoin? It’s a very good question, but one that went comically unasked as the rumor sped halfway round the world and back.
In hindsight, it appears that economic machinations were behind the rumor — the price of Litecoin shot up from £125 to £170 per token due to the global press coverage.
Eventually, both parties caught up to the rumor and explicitly closed it down. Verdict: FALSE.
Is Instagram Hiding My Posts from My Followers?
Ah, the age-old paranoia of those seeking recognition. . . Not getting enough attention? It must surely be a conspiracy against you, my friend.
We reported on similar social media angst back in June, that time with regards to Facebook.
Poor old Instagram has had a rough time with this persistent nonsense, having to address and deny it way back in January 2019. Rest assured reader, when you come across such social media ‘secrets’, it’s normally as FALSE as this one.
We hope you’ve had as good a time as we have with these rumors. Do share the truth with your friends and family!
