Conservative leadership candidate Leslyn Lewis said governments need to look into Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
“We were quickly told this wasn’t vaccine-related,” said Lewis in a Wednesday email.
“But that is not good enough.”
Lewis pointed out SADS manifests in healthy young adults who suddenly drop dead. She said SADS might be the reason the leading cause of death in Alberta is because of unknown reasons.
Alberta reported an unprecedented increase in ill-defined and unknown causes of death in 2021.
Unknown causes is leading the way over dementia, which had been in the top spot since 2016, and COVID-19 which began adding to the death tally in Alberta in 2020.
