Most of the deaths I encounter in the emergency room are due to heart disease. In one moment, a man my age is routinely taking out the garbage at home and in the next all there is for the family to see is the stub of an intubation tube in the mouth of a lifeless body. If there is one thing I could say to folks, is to please do not wait until someone like me leads your grieving wife and family into a treatment room. It's really hard and really really sad. I promise. So please make yourself a promise -- to eat better food, and to start to make exercise a regular part of your life
