A heart attack can be induced with the proper combination of drugs. I wonder if any of those same drugs are used for interrogation purposes?
Autopsy shows a hear attack, and a high cholesterol level... bam... instant cardiovascular disease.

You don't need drugs to cause heart failure, electric shocks can do it. Besides, at least three of the prisoners were over 54, any kind of severe stress (torture-related or otherwise) could have prompted a heart attack . . .

Medical Neep Warning:
A heart attack (myocardial infarction or MI) occurs when an area of heart muscle dies or is permanently damaged because of an inadequate supply of oxygen to that area.
Heart attacks are sometimes the first symptom of Coronary Artery Disease. (CAD) CAD is the narrowing of small blood vessels supplying blood and oxygen to the heart.
In heart failure (also called congestive heart failure, or CHF) the heart loses its ability to efficiently pump blood. A cardiac arrest may occur during CHF.
Arrhythmias are caused by a disruption of the normal electrical conduction system of the heart. Some arrhthmias are life-threatening. Arrhythmias can be caused by drugs, sodium imbalance dehydration, lightning strikes, MI, or lots of stuff.
Nearly half of all men (I think this is a statistic for Americans but I'd have to check and I don't have time now) suffer some form of CAD after the age of 40.
