After an inquest, a UK coroner has determined that political activist Peter Bradley died of natural causes that were brought about by epilepsy. The father of two, age 50, was found dead in his apartment on July 10, 2012, and an inquest was conducted to properly determine his cause of death.
The results of the inquest were published online in an update to the original story in newsandstar.co.uk on December 19, 2012. The original article stated that Bradley’s landlord found Bradley, who was a severe epileptic, on the floor of his apartment on Lazonby Road in Carlisle. According to his sister, Pamela Ann Key, Bradley suffered from a severe seizure in the street only months before he died. Coroner Dr. David Roberts stated that while his body was found on July 10, it is likely he died on July 5. Bradley was involved with Labor Politics for many years before his death. His coroner stated that he died from a “sudden unexpected death in epilepsy.”
Epilepsy is a common condition that is suffered by millions of people worldwide. Most people know little about the condition unless a family member suffers from it, but the condition is a very dangerous one. Epilepsy causes sufferers to experience seizures that can be deadly, as in Bradley’s case. The condition is often treated with prescription medications, which include anti-seizure drugs like Topamax, but Topamax has been linked to babies being born with birth defects (PPHN, oral clefts, spina bifida and neural tube defects) when the mothers take the pills while pregnant. Topamax use is often dangerous because doctors have to guess which dosage to use on patients in order to find the right one.
