One day, at age 31, The Young Turks' Head of Business Development Praveen Singh unexpectedly passed out at work. After a trip to the emergency room and multiple subsequent tests, she was told her episode had been caused by an irregular heart beat associated with a condition called "ventricular tachycardia."

Watch the second video in this series where Cenk interviews the research team:
How Stem Cell Research Is Curing Congenital Heart Defects (Interview w/ Cenk Uygur) https://youtu.be/ilVjSnE5t44

In this interview with TYT host Cenk Uygur and TYT science correspondent Jayde Lovell, Singh talks about the international fact-finding journey she embarked on to learn more about her condition and the difficult decisions she's had to make about whether to follow medical advice and have a defibrillator implanted and to take medications for the rest of her life.

The three also discuss how and why stem cell research is a uniquely effective method for uncovering the root cause of ventricular tachycardia and critical to helping isolate and cure a range of cardiac conditions that lead to the premature deaths of thousands of Americans.
