Amish Community has low incidence of heart disease.
This is poignant for me today. A friend, only in his fifties, is having a quintuple bypass today. By the time you read this it will probably be done.
So I was thinking about heart disease.
My mother had high blood pressure and her father died of a heart attack. He was 79. They really are my only link to heart disease. My sister says we are anti-risk for heart disease. All my numbers come back great. My doctor loves to see my numbers.
Researchers believe that if they study this Amish community they will be able to figure out prevenative drugs.
What a neat idea. A community that spurns technology will be instrumental in creating new technology or at least drugs.
That's pretty ironic.
Even though I don't have heart disease and probably won't I still work out. It makes me feel good.
So what do you do for yourself?
