Why are these computer gamers dying so young?

Team Liquid confirmed last night that League of Legends head coach and former Overwatch coach Dennis “INTERNETHULK” Hawelka died yesterday, at age 30.

The family of Hawelka have not yet released details as per the cause or time of death.

Hawelka was a longtime veteran of the esports scene, competing in everything from StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft to League and Overwatch.
Story here. 

This is weird and not many people are talking about it.  For some unknown reason I'm seeing a bunch of computer gamers dying young.  I mean its a freaking mystery.

And its happening every couple of months that a high profile guy bites the dust.

Is it drug related?  I don't think so.  We would have heard that screamed to the rooftops I would think.  Energy drinks?  The same.

Lack of sleep isn't the issue least I don't think it is.  I had a BN commander that thought that it was fun to go all out on exercises with no sleep for anybody for 48 hours...just to see how we would do.  We did that probably once every 6 months too.  So sleep deprivation in the form of these 24 hour broadcasts showing these guys playing games isn't the reason either.

So what could it be?
