  • She dealt with eating disorders for a very long time, which can put a huge strain on the heart. Even if she was 'recovering' now, the stresses of self starvation are life long.

  • That is so true Jenny-talia. Remember Karen Carpenter back in the 80's died from a heart attach due to the stress that her eating disorder put on her heart. Karen was in recovery at the time of her death. Not sure if that is the reason for Brittany's heart attack but yes eating disorders are deadly
