Why are people dying of heart attack at a relatively young age in Cambodia?

I suspect the following maybe the reason:

"In the long term, meth use can cause irreversible harm: increased heart rate and blood pressure; damaged blood vessels in the brain that can cause strokes or an irregular heartbeat that can, in turn, cause cardiovascular collapse or death; and liver, kidney and lung damage."(drugfreeworld.org)

Cardiotoxicity associated with methamphetamine use and signs of cardiovascular pathology among methamphetamine users

Methamphetamine may, however, exacerbate pre-existing underlying cardiac pathology, such as coronary atherosclerosis or cardiomyopathy, thereby increasing the risk of an acute event such as myocardial infarction or even sudden cardiac death. Long-term methamphetamine users appear to be most at risk of cardiovascular damage, such as premature, accelerated coronary artery disease. As such, methamphetamine toxicity is more likely to have a fatal outcome with chronic use.

Serious question as I do not do drugs: is meth so widespread now, even among middle-class Westerners?

That was a pretty stupid comment.... I do realize that young people die of heart conditions, but proportionally the number seems very high here.

They could be dying from overdoses or anything really, it's just a catch-all phrase the authorities use because they don't actually know. You probably remember years back they used to blame mysterious deaths on "dizziness".

I think Walter White made meth fashionable.
