Dude played the game and is now paying. And my comment isn't meant to suggest I don't give a crap. From what I know, Mike's a decent fella (never met him). But when you push everything SO far, eventually Mother Nature comes-a-collecting.

Cruddy heart genetics + mountains of red meat/no veggies and fruit + horrific abuse of anabolic drugs and hormones/etc. = BIG trouble

Regardless, my best wishes to Matarazzo. I certainly don't wish death upon the guy.

Sad to read. God bless him.

Thanks for posting this. It is sad that he continues to struggle with a serious heart condition, but not surprising since once a heart is damaged to a certain degree, it is hard to come back from this. Hope he recovers as he's done previously.

Dude said he used to eat a few pounds of meat a day or some crazy shit like that.

Johnny Falcon was right. The heme-iron got to him.

If he had controlled his blood lipids with statins, he may have been able to forestall his problems.

If he has genuine remorse then he has a chance.

A chance to accept Jesus Christ as his saviour?

Hope he recovers, but he was fully aware of his choices.

Yes. Statins aren't the perfect answer though. Like with most medications, there are side effects.

Mike knows that he ruined himself.... he admits it. Hopefully a miracle can happen, and he can can have his health restored.

Sadly it's not looking good. Total heart failure and presently in the ICU.

If you lived a safe life then you have not lived at all that is another name for a coward, men who take risks and go to the extreme to achieve their goals  are the real men of this world.
 Mike should not be remorseful now he should be smiling because he did what he had to do to achieve his goals.


Mike admitted that his bodybuilding life was merely vanity.

Sounds like both him and ifbb pro are having a tough time health wise with heart issues. That's the price though for pushing to the limits.

Stuff like this is always sad to read, a lot of times we don't think of the long haul. I wish him and his family the best. Youve got to stay on top of your blood work and monitor your health if this is the lifestyle you choose.

Sad news, shame the sports isn't in some way regulated so guys don't have to abuse drugs to the levels that they need to, to be competitive.

People make choices and this includes the women. Diets, drugs, supplements, etc., are all a choice.

Anyone who would consume pounds of meat a day and avoid carbs and sugars doesn't know much about nutrition.

In the old days we were all afraid that steroids could shorten our lives. We have seen some top guys go before reaching 50.

The steroids are probably not that dangerous but stacking heaps of compounds and using rec drugs can't be good for longevity.

I know I am repeating myself.  Allow doctors to supervise cycles and write prescriptions for pharmaceutical grade.

Very sad news. He looked like a stand up guy. He abused things like anyone else and paid a high price for it.
Regret really rules his life now, hope his message reach the young bodybuilders hearts.
I seriously hope he walks this earth for several more years.

In every sport true champions take it to the limit and get hurt or even die. Whether it's surfing mountain climbing boxing motor racing rugby etc. Do you guys have any idea how many severely injured gymnasts there are?

This is the mark of a champions. They push to the limit.

The activities that you mentioned are sports.


Bodybuilding with drugs is a mental illness; which eventually turns into a physical illness.
