        it says in big bold letters:
        “after suffering a heart attack”
        If you want her to keep up this information without being censored you’re going to have to figure out the underlying cause yourself.

      There’s an awful lot of sudden heart attacks in previously healthy people. Look at your local paper’s death notices and see how many working age people are dying suddenly. I know what’s causing it, and so do thousands of others who have refused an experimental medical procedure that doesn’t work. Unless depopulation was the aim.
