Response to Ken Burch (Original post)

25. I had a cousin in good health die at 38, presumably from a heart attack...

they attributed it to an uncommon arrhythmia that screwed up the electrical functioning of the heart, one of the conditions that gives rise to 'sudden adult death syndrome'. The heart stops working but the muscle itself isn't damaged, so it can't be diagnosed definitively after death.

The arrhythmias can be detected in life if they know what they're looking for but 30-somethings w/o family histories of cardiac problems aren't usually given ekgs etc.
