Dallas McCarver, IFBB professional bodybuilder, died after an unwitnessed cardiac event contributed to by of combination of coronary atherosclerosis (a buildup of plaque in the arteries) and an enlarged left ventricle (a thickening of the heart muscle that causes it to work harder). McCarver had a family history of cardiovascular disease (genetic predisposition) including both hypertension and atherosclerosis.
Dallas was found on the floor in his living room with food scattered around his body shortly after midnight on August 22nd, 2017. Paramedics were called and he arrived at the hospital in full cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at 1:03 A.M. An autopsy was performed the following day.
Noted at the time of autopsy was an enlarged liver and kidneys, nephrosclerosis (a hardened liver), heavy lungs, and a papillary thyroid carcinoma. Prior medical history includes cholesterol issues (high LDL/ low HDL), elevated aminotransferase levels, a chronic cough and shortness of breath, and childhood asthma.
His testosterone levels were within normal range at the time of death, despite having an elevated epitestosterone level (indicating testosterone replacement, though not abuse per se). Trenbolone metabolites were also present. Screening for additional steroids was negative, although he tested positive for caffeine and marijuana metabolites (neither of which are mentioned as contributing factors in his death). No other recreational drugs or narcotics were present. (Did not use Narcs and Party Drugs) because remember he was prepping for a show and atleast Nubain Metabolites should have been detected
Also noted (but neither tested for, nor listed as a contributing factor in Dallas’ death) was a prior history of hGH and insulin use.

Hypertrophy of organs 3-4 times normal size-
1. HEART- 833gms
2. Lungs 617 and 620gms
3. Liver- 4600gms
4. Kidneys -456 and 503

First time in any Autopsy report they have mentioned that

CONTRIBUTING CONDITIONS: CHRONIC USE OF EXOGENOUS STEROID AND NON-STEROID HORMONES

833 gm heart? Jesus. Piana's was only 670, and 500+ is considered the danger zone.

It’s odd , a lot of what they said are also the markers they look for while diagnosing heart disease yet they didn’t specifically say it.  This guy was in need of a new heart.  Goes to show we need to take these genetic disorders mor serious.   Roll Eyes

With all these bodybuilders having heart issues, how can anyone even deny the link between heart issues and chronic use of illegal substances? Sure, genetics plays a role, but come on, the writing is on the wall. If Dallas never became a professional bodybuilder, there would obviously been a reduced chance of him dying of heart issues at such a young age. Heck, I know people who are 50+ who have similar conditions and with a healthy lifestyle and proper monitoring from a doctor, they are still plugging away. How can such an early death not be linked solely to steroids?  Huh Huh

It would be interesting to see the heart weights, etc..... of other steroid using athletes too. One would figure that a healthy proportion of them that share the same genetic factors, etc.... but wind up living perfectly long lives. It is probably more the quest for size that is doing it. Thinking about it in my head, most of the heart related deaths I recall of young steroid users were in the really huge guys #275 plus.

Professional bodybuilding promotes health, a healthy lifestyle and heart healthy eating and supplementation.

This should be a wake up call to various bodybuilders, to check their family history, take care of themselves, especially those who are try and push the envelope.

Thanks for the information.

I believe Dallas was like 330 pounds offseason.  Huh Huh

Damn, and I remember the early days of lifting when I wanted to be a professional bodybuilder.  Shocked Shocked

Shawn Ray (among many others, I'm sure) cautioned McCarver against getting too big, too fast--Dallas was approx. 330 lbs. at only 26 years of age.  And Shawn caught all kinds of shit for being a negative hater.

Did people overlook that he had thyroid cancer at the time of autopsy.

They also found "papillary thyroid carcinoma."

What stands out for me is that the tox screen flagged zero for PEDs apart from tren?  Huh  Nothing else?  And since when do they test for Boldenone in a human autopsy?  Did I miss a meeting or something?

Not really surprised at the organ growth, the kid was probably on GH his entire (brutally short) adult life...  Tongue

Shawn caught it because people don't like to hear the truth, they want live in a world where no one talks about the consequences for one's actions.

10lbs liver???
I know, that is crazy.

A human liver normally weighs 1.44–1.66 kg (3.2–3.7 lb), and has a width of about 15 cm.

So, dumb question from a non-doctor:  Can GH promote the growth of all kinds of cells?  Even mutated cancer cells?  Could GH speed up the development of cancer cells, or increase the likelihood of mutated cells multiplying?
