Athletes should know how much protein they are taking in
By Andrew Coppolino
My heart goes out to the friends and family of Cambridge hockey player Ben Pearson.
The 20-year-old athlete died suddenly because of a rare and undiagnosed enzyme deficiency in his liver. It resulted in a build-up of ammonia in his liver that was responsible for his death in only a matter of days.
It’s sad to have lost Ben at such a young age as he pursued the game he loved. The tragedy of the situation is such that it leaves me wondering what could have been done to prevent his death. Unfortunately, there is little to be done.
So where does that leave us? Well, we can only try to learn from Ben’s passing. He was an athlete, and he worked hard at playing hockey. At a powerful 240 pounds (109 kilograms), the former Junior B defenceman was on a high-protein diet.
