Find out why young athletes are at high risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest, and why it really has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines!
Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!
While student athletes appears to be the epitome of healthy young people, many are at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
In fact, studies show that sudden cardiac arrest is the leading medical cause of death in young athletes.
On average, about 2,000 young people in the United States (less than 24 years old) die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and many do not have previously-known heart disease.
That does not mean that they do not have a heart disease. It simply means most of them were not screened, and were not aware of any heart disease they might have.
16 year-old Haley Meche, for example, only survived sudden cardiac arrest on the football field because she was earlier diagnosed with a heart condition, and had a defibrillator implanted.
Another student athlete, Josh Tetteh, was also fortunate enough to detect his heart condition through preventive screening, even though he did not have any symptoms. If untreated, it could have led to sudden cardiac arrest.
My whole life was perfect. We had this screening, they found something within my heart that is one of the reasons why athletes die.
According to Dr. Jonathan Drezner – head of the UW Medical Center for Sports Cardiology, “1 in 300 young persons has a condition at risk for sudden cardiac arrest.”
On top of that, Dr. Drezner said that the risk is nearly four times higher in student athletes, and this is a risk that most athletes don’t even know about.
Research shows that up to 80% of kids who suffer sudden cardiac arrest have no symptoms prior.
A majority of high schools in the United States now require student athletes to take a questionnaire and undergo a physical examination, with additional testing and ECG for those at higher risk.
Even so, Dr. Drezner believes that the current selective ECG screening model is not enough, and still leaves “the majority of kids at risk undetected“.
In addition to student athletes, adults are also at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest while undertaking strenuous sporting activities. Approximately 356,000 adults suffer from sudden cardiac arrest every year in the United States, 90% of which are fatal.
That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.
Why Sudden Cardiac Arrest In Athletes Are Not Caused By Vaccines
In most of the world though, ECG screening for student athletes and adults is virtually non-existent, which has led to many cases of sudden deaths on the field.
These sudden deaths have been weaponised in the past 2+ years by anti-vaccination activists as “evidence” of vaccine injury, which is utter nonsense.
For one thing – sudden cardiac arrest isn’t caused by COVID-19 vaccines. SCA is a medical emergency that has been documented for as long as medical records exist.
And SCA is actually pretty common. The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.
The incidence of SCA also did not increase after the vaccines were introduced, which squashes the claim that vaccines is causing a spike in sudden cardiac arrest deaths.
As this Peterson-KFF chart shows, the incidence of heart disease as well as other causes of death in the United States remained relatively stable during the pandemic. Only deaths from COVID-19 varied significantly during that time.
It is also important to note that many SCA cases have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest during strenuous activities.
That’s why many of these cases occur more frequently in athletes during sporting activities, even though they are by most accounts healthier than the general population.
In fact, the rate at which athletes are experiencing sudden death has progressively increased over the years. This chart from the Maron study showed how the number of athletes suffering from sudden death increased at a rate of about 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.
Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.
Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.
Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.
Several deaths have been confirmed this way by health authorities. So if anyone tells you that an athlete died from the COVID-19 vaccine, ask for the evidence.
