But What Caused the Arrhythmia, Congressman?
An Illinois family can't see the truth behind their daughter's death
Last week a friend I’ll call Sage called me in tears. Sage’s son’s best friend died suddenly and unexpectedly. Only 16 years old, L. was a healthy, active, and much-loved teen. She was also the only child of devoted parents. She died, purportedly, of a stroke.
Her parents have requested an autopsy.
Sage is an outspoken type, attuned to other people’s feelings but not afraid to speak her mind. Years ago she talked to L.’s parents about childhood vaccines. She shared information and resources. They agreed to disagree. L.’s parents told Sage that they trusted their doctor and felt that it was safer to vaccinate than to pick and choose or delay. Fair enough.
But when they told her they’d decided L. would get the COVID-19 vaccines as soon as they were approved, Sage felt her heart stop.
“The minute they said that, I saw the angel of death,” she whispered to me. “Now I know why.”
Just a few days after I talked to Sage, Illinois Representative Sean Casten’s family released a statement about their 17-year-old daughter’s sudden death.
Didn’t Wake Up
Their daughter, Gwen Casten, was found dead in her room this summer, on June 13, 2022.
The family believed she died in her sleep.
Now they know that the cause of her death was sudden cardiac arrhythmia. Here’s TeamCasten’s heartbreaking post on Instagram:
The family’s statement reads:
"Gwen was a healthy 2022 teenager. She ate well, exercised, got regular check-ups, didn't suffer from any behavioral health issues, and had close relationships with family and friends."
It also specifies that Gwen was fully vaccinated against COVID and had tested positive for an asymptomatic case during the omicron wave.
The night before she died, she had “just come home from an evening with friends, went to bed and didn't wake up,” according to the statement.
It continues: "We are heartbroken, but we are not unique. Sudden, unexplained heart-failure among young, healthy people is rare but real. We are left grasping at the wrong end of random chance."
The Wrong End of Random Chance?
Representative Sean Casten has a Master of Engineering Management and a Master of Science in Biochemical Engineering from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College. His on-line biography describes him as a scientist. Indeed, at Dartmouth Casten did detailed research in thermophilic fermentation technology and engineering analyses of integrated ethanol, heat, and power plants.
Unfortunately, even most scientists are unaware of the growing body of peer-reviewed science about COVID-19 vaccine adverse reactions.
If Casten were keeping up with the science, he would have read in the literature that COVID-19 vaccines can cause myocarditis, pericarditis, and arrhythmia.
He would also have read that the COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of cardiac arrest in young people by at least 25 percent, according to recent science.
And that antibody dependent enhancement is a big concern.
Gwen was fully vaccinated against COVID-19, just like L. Gwen had also tested positive for the virus.
Both of these deaths are unspeakably sad on so many levels.
But Gwen’s death was most likely not just due to “random chance.” Which means that Representative Sean Casten’s daughter’s death was also likely to have been entirely avoidable.

Florida Recommends Against mRNA Vaccines
Two days ago, on October 7, the Surgeon General of Florida issued a press release recommending against mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for males ages 18 to 39.
According to the release:
“There is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group. Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks.
“As such, the State Surgeon General recommends against males aged 18 to 39 from receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Those with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when making this decision.
“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health,” said Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. “Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed—these are important findings that should be communicated...”
RIP Gwen Casten.
RIP Tyler Edwards.
RIP Nick Nemeroff.
RIP Benjamin Goodwin.
RIP Rory Nairn.
RIP Monica Melkonian.
RIP Ernest Ramirez, Jr.
RIP Jack Last.
These deaths are devastating. I hope they will not be in vain.

1. Up until now, cardiac arrhythmia was always impossible to diagnose post-mortem. Cardiac arrhythmia is diagnosed via EKG, measuring the electrical impulses of the heart. Post-mortem there are, obviously, no electrical impulses available for evaluation.
The diagnosis is presumptive.
2. I now wonder how many of the previously truly rare “died suddenly” deaths amongst otherwise healthy teens and adults were actually vaccine-related? Just as routine childhood shots cause death in babies and kids, why couldn’t some of the routine shots (flu, HPV, meningococcal, HSV) cause sudden death in some recipients.
I’ve never before considered this, but I bet that it is a real possibility. 😓. I have a friend whose friends’ teenage daughter died suddenly a few years ago. Nothing found on autopsy. I wonder if she had been recently vaccinated???
"But What Caused the Arrhythmia, Congressman?"
An act of GOD (Government Organized Death).
