and some of the other drugs that are out there where they've found increased risks of heart attacks and strokes. Specifically, I'm thinking about the drugs that have to do with pain reduction. I was wondering if perhaps the reason for these increased deaths isn't due to the drugs per se but because the people have become signficantly more active and it's this increased physical activity that's causing these deaths. I haven't looked into this very closely and I'm wondering if this possibility has been studied? I'm figuring that if people have some sort of existing problem, then simply becoming more active can also result in deaths. I'm thinking along the lines of Jim Fixx or Pistol Pete who both died during physical activity and had (I think) pre-existing medical conditions. Does anyone know?
