A recent study found that kids (ages 9-12) often had a very high rise in troponin following an intervention that is *claimed* to be healthy.

The dotted line shows the threshold of troponin that diagnoses a heart attack!
The intervention?
It was soccer.
The same effect can be seen in e.g. competitive swimming! (doi.org/10.3390/ijerph…)

So... should we have kids stop swimming or kicking balls around?

Or maybe should we just be a little more careful when using troponin as an outcome?
