Heart Health in Action

After explaining atherosclerosis, cardiovascular fitness, weight management and the importance of maintaining a diet low in cholesterol to my old country non-English speaking relatives, my sister and I scurried out of the door like rabid dogs as soon as we heard the siren song of the ice-cream truck and returned with ginourmous cones of ice-cream that probably had 2 days worth of calories. Our display of unrestrained gluttony was met with sharp disapproval as ice-cream melted onto the carpet. We’re soooo smooth.

Bet your old time relatives are healthy, though. There are worse things they don't eat.

We are all guilty. Do as I say, NOT as I do.

Typical ER stuff: "Boy that guy has a HUGE stroke. Somebody call Dr. Grumpy. I'm gonna go have a cigarette and grab a burger".

Ice cream is the exception!
