Heart Attack Stat Hits Close to Home

heartTuesday morning, my 50-something year-old uncle suffered a massive heart attack. He was blessed to have been at school when it happened where CPR was administered and a defibrillator was used. He is still in critical condition and, even if he pulls through, there will be a long road to recovery.

Unfortunately, his heart attack could have been prevented. He is one of nearly 36% of American adults who are overweight, and is now one of the 935,000 Americans who will suffer from a heart attack this year.

I recently posted this wonderful article about eating- eating for nutrition not just to “be thin or skinny”. Whole foods are a wonderful source of nutrition that God created and designed for our bodies to use. If we educate ourselves and those around us, we will be able to reverse these horrific trends in disease within this country.
