1. A person could be a lazy "couch potato" and develop heart disease.
2. A person could be an athlete and develop an abnormal rhythmic heart.
What's the fine line between the two?
FYI, Gaines Adams is the second former Buc DE with an abnormal heart. Former DE Simeon Rice has an abnormal heart beat.
Ya, really makes you think. If a guy likes Gaines, who I assume was an athlete that knew his body and took great care of it (or maybe he didn't) can die suddenly it makes you wonder what can happen to normal people like us who may not take as good of care of ourselves.
Here one second, gone another. You never know.
it could be a steroid issue it makes muscles bigger and the heart is a muscle,not that i am accusing him, I am just sgtating a possibility
Performance enhancing drugs could be a cause. However, the 'roids didn't seem to help so much. Adams only had 13.5 career sacks.
My guess would be this was purely genetics. A recessive gene that became active in Gaines Adams.
