Are Athletes Dying From Heart Issues at an Increased Rate in 2021?
Inflammation-causing injection meets long-standing occupational hazard
Many such stories in the news space. What is the cause?
On the one hand, particularly footballers collapsing from heart issues has been a thing for decades.
On the other, covid injections that have marked 2021 irrefutably cause heart inflammation. So much so that in some countries young men and teenagers are told to forsake taxing physical activity for days or weeks after getting the injection.
Possibility A: The frequency of athlete deaths due to heart complications is at the same level it has always been, it is merely that people are now much more sensitive to these deaths, and they get more attention.
Possibility B: The inflammation-causing mRNA has indeed heightened the frequency of cardiac deaths among those who tax their hearts the most as part of their occupation.
Which one is it?
It would be great (and invaluable to athletes) to have a survey that would look at this question systematically. So far we only have compilations of anecdotes.
