It's Not Fat - It's The Cure For Heart Disease!

Ok, my Labor Day weekend running plan failed. I ran on Saturday and thought I would run on Monday, but then due the my poor nutrition (and drinking) on Saturday and Sunday, combined with a busy schedule, I couldnt get the run in on Monday. But it is ok! I have just learned that human fat yields multipurpose stem cells. Why run? If I sit on my butt and eat cookies and ice cream (like I did this past weekend) I am actually creating and storing fat cells ... and that is good! Why? Because new (and very early) research suggests that fat cells might be able to be "coached" into becoming any type of tissue or cell in the body. My plan is to be as lazy and eat as much as I can, and then try to get some free liposuction (by offering to donate my valuable fat cells in exchange for the procedure). Problem solved! Boy, that takes a load off my back.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the nation's single leading cause of death for both men and women. At least 58.8 million people in this country suffer from some form of heart disease.
And on the whole, cardiovascular diseases (the combination of heart disease and stroke) kill some 950,000 Americans every year.
Still, there are many misconceptions about heart disease: "The biggest misconception is that heart disease only happens to the elderly," said Elizabeth Schilling, CRNP with the Center for Preventive Cardiology Program at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
In fact, according to the American Heart Association, almost 150,00 Americans killed by cardiovascular disease each year are under the age of 65. And one out of every 20 people below the age of 40 has heart disease.
So, it is now a wise decision to keep a constant monitoring of your health. Why to take a chance if we have the option. I was in the similar misconception that heart disease are far away waiting for me to get aged. But to my surprise, I was found to be having a calcium deposit in my coronary arteries. I need to have my advance diagnostic scans due reassure whether something really deadly is waiting for me. Though it was some dreadful going on in my life, but I never felt any kind of discomfort in advanced diagnostic facility. They were having some of the latest diagnostic equipments and non invasive techniques which made me feel safe.
