Heart:
  A "word to the wise": Several of our friends had been walking around with severe coronary blockage without symptoms. All were in the range of 50 years old. All were detected through a company offered periodic physical examination. All resulted in bypass surgery. It was a life saving situation for each of them. 

  Once more, we visit the intellihealth.com site. A click HERE will take you to their heart zone for comprehensive information on prevention, symptoms, and treatments.

  HEART ATTACK AND STROKE SYMPTOMS 
    
A click on the above title takes you directly to the American Heart Associations page of heart attack and stroke symptoms. Denial seems to be a big problem. This is one case where delay can kill you or permanently incapacitate you. Don't be afraid of looking foolish. Isn't it better to look foolish but be sure that you get a chance to see your grandkids! If you have symptoms, call 911.
     

 

 

Want to check for drug interactions? Here's a link to a website chaired by Dr. C. Everett Koop, the former U.S. Surgeon General. A click HERE will take you to the site's drug interactions checker. The site, drkoop.com, is another excellent resource for health information.
