Doctors Raise Alarm over Soaring Young Heart Attack Deaths

Several doctors have spoken out to raise the alarm over the growing numbers of young patients they are seeing dying suddenly from unexpected heart attacks.

Doctors say that up to a staggering 20 percent of all heart attack deaths are among people under the age of 40.

A heart attack is caused by a sudden loss of blood flow to part of the heart, usually due to a coronary artery becoming blocked.

“Between 10 to 20 percent of my heart attack patients are now under the age of 40,” says Dr. Martin Lowe, a consultant cardiologist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and The Portland Hospital, both in London.

“In the US, data shows around one in five heart attack patients is under 40 and we’re catching up in the UK.

“When I was a junior doctor it was extremely rare to see young people — most patients were smokers in their 50s and 60s.”

Dr. Joe Mills, a consultant cardiologist at England’s Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, adds:

“We have really noticed the trend for younger people from mid-20s upwards having heart attacks in the past five years in particular.

“Now as a cardiologist, you wouldn’t even raise your eyebrows when seeing someone in their late 30s — it’s becoming fairly typical, which is frightening.”

So what’s causing the rise in heart attacks in younger people?

A number of factors are to blame, including poor diet and obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, an increase in the number of young people developing type 2 diabetes (which is associated with thicker and stickier blood which raises the risk of blood clots and, in turn, heart attacks), smoking and alcohol, says Dr. Lowe.

However, the spike in heart attacks started in 2021 after the Covid mRNA vaccines were rolled out to the public.

The injections have been repeatedly linked to heart failure by multiple studies and leading experts.

Experts report a worrying rise in the number of under-40s suffering heart attacks in the US and the UK.

Before 2021, obesity and stress were the leading causes of heart attacks.

Obesity often leads to high blood pressure, which can put extra strain on the arteries and heart, and sleep apnoea (disordered patterns of breathing at night that cause you to temporarily stop breathing).

It can also lead to blood clots forming.

Another main cause is stress, as Dr. Lowe explains:

“Generally, we all live with stress, but it can trigger a heart attack or change in heart rhythm in some people and not others.

“I’ve seen a huge increase in heart rhythm problems due to stress.”

Professor Thomas Lüscher, a consultant cardiologist at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals in London, says stress activates the sympathetic nervous system, associated with “fight or flight” responses, and this increases our heart rate and can cause the major coronary arteries to contract.

This, in turn, can cause plaque (a substance made of fat and cholesterol that builds up inside the arteries) to rupture, triggering clots to form inside the artery.

As the clot grows, it can block blood flow and lead to a heart attack.

Young people who have heart attacks often have worse outcomes, says Dr. Lowe — this is simply because they do not consider they could be having a heart attack and so don’t get the treatment — such as a stent placed in the blocked artery to open it up — quickly enough to minimize long-term heart damage.

A delay in diagnosis raises the risk of a future, bigger, and fatal heart attack (subsequent heart attacks are usually more severe while one in three heart attacks is fatal), or heart failure (when the heart cannot pump blood around the body properly), adds Dr. Mills.

“If you’re 35 and living with heart failure, it’s devastating and your life expectancy is dramatically reduced, so it’s a pretty disastrous outcome at that sort of age.”

But it’s not just the general public that needs to be aware of the risk of a heart attack in younger people, many health professionals also don’t recognize the signs, adds Dr. Mills.

This leads to people with chest pain being sent home from A&E, only for them to have a major heart attack within a day or two, he adds.

“A lot of effort has previously been put into making sure healthcare professionals don’t dismiss women with suspected heart attacks because traditionally heart attacks were thought to affect men — but now we’re getting to the same stage with not dismissing the under-40s.”

However, while obesity and stress have long been associated with heart attacks in those over 40, they don’t explain the soaring numbers of deaths in younger people since 2021.

Meanwhile, several leading experts are linking the phenomenon to Covid vaccines.

As Slay News reported, a recent study found that Covid “booster” shots are behind increased numbers of heart failure patients.

The peer-reviewed study, published in the world-renowned European Heart Journal on February 15, found that a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna injections is directly linked to the “increased incidence rate of myocarditis.”

Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle (myocardium), according to the Mayo Clinic.

The inflammation can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood, leading to blood clots, strokes, cardiac arrest, and potentially death.

Myocarditis is a known side effect of the Covid mRNA vaccines but most people are unaware that they have it, making it a potential ticking timebomb for sufferers.

The vaccine-induced heart injury is believed to be the leading cause of the recent spike in sudden and unexpected deaths.

The researchers said the spikes in myocarditis are more apparent in young adults and adolescents, particularly males.

As Slay News has reported, cases of myocarditis have been skyrocketing around the world since the public rollout of the Covid shots in early 2021.

According to the new study, using data from several Nordic nations, researchers evaluated the risk of myocarditis among 12- to 39-year-olds after receiving COVID-19 mRNA booster vaccination.

The study analyzed data from 8.9 million young adults from four nations: Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.

In total, 1,533 cases of myocarditis were identified, which the researchers noted were all caused by the mRNA boosters.

The study concluded that the “booster dose is associated with increased myocarditis risk in adolescents and young adults.”

According to a separate study published in late January, cases of myocarditis among vaccinated individuals in the United States spiked within the first year of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

The U.S. study looked at data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

“We found the number of myocarditis reports in VAERS after COVID-19 vaccination in 2021 was 223 times higher than the average of all vaccines combined for the past 30 years,” the U.S. study said.

“This represented a [2,500 percent] increase in the absolute number of reports in the first year of the campaign when comparing historical values prior to 2021.”

Roughly 50 percent of myocarditis cases occurred among youths and 69 percent of affected individuals were males.

Among those raising the alarm about Covid shots is world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough.

In a post on his website, he responded to claims that the COVID-19 virus is responsible for the spike.

McCullough described this argument as “a twisted rationale for giving out COVID-19 vaccines, and in a perverted manner, creating more myocarditis in the population.

“If SARS-CoV-2 infection caused myocarditis or inflammation of heart muscle tissue, then it would be seen on autopsy in fatal cases of COVID-19.”

Dr. McCullough cited an October 2022 study involving an autopsy of the hearts of COVID-19-infected individuals.

The analysis “concluded the virus does not infect the heart,” he said.

The cardiologist called claims of the COVID-19 virus infecting the heart and causing myocarditis “false claims made from automated hospital data and not adjudicated, autopsy-proven cases.”

“The COVID-19 vaccines install mRNA in the heart and the Spike protein directly damages and incites inflammation into the heart muscle causing the pathophysiology we see every day in cardiology practice,” he wrote.

Researchers from a Jan. 24 U.S. study who looked into the initial phase 3 trials of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines found that their estimated harms “greatly outweigh the rewards.”

After determining that the injections do more harm than good, they called on world governments to impose a “global” ban on the COVID-19 vaccines “given the well-documented [serious adverse events] and unacceptable harm-to-reward ratio.”

The authors also recommended an “immediate removal” of COVID-19 vaccines from the childhood immunization schedule.

They pointed out that children are at very low risk of infection.
