Doctors Trying to Determine Why Young People Suddenly Dying
By Roman Balmakov
As COVID-19 progressed and vaccines became available, reports of professional soccer players collapsing on the field became more prevalent.
To better understand this phenomenon, I sat down with Dr. Michael Ackerman, a Mayo Clinic genetic cardiologist and the president of the Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) Foundation, to get his expert opinion on how COVID and the vaccine affect heart conditions in people under 35.
Dr. Ackerman also explains what SADS is, how it diagnosed, and what can be done to mitigate the chances of becoming one of the 5,000 to 10,000 Americans that die from SADS every year.
