If you are concerned about your heart you have to get a coronary calcium scan. It is a cheap and low radiation CT scan of your heart that will tell you how much actual blockages you have. I had one at 50 and after a lifetime of high cholesterol the score was zero. There is a movie free on you tube called "the widowmaker" Gillian Anderson is the narrator.

Doctors and nurses share the things patients should never do


Interesting article. I think I knew all of these, though. What I don't understand is why being late is a terrible issue. I think most docs give people fifteen minutes. I can see why it might be a problem if the patient comes a lot later, though.

It's interesting, when I moved to my farm 17 years ago I had problems figuring out what word I needed to use in a sentence. Got rid of the stress I had when I moved (still stress just not 24/7). Farm has lots of heavy work naturally, & settling into a whole new place & meeting new people, having quiet time to read & study. I often think how much easier getting my degree would have been if I had been in the mental state I am in now vs then. I remember when my mom used to say "when you get older you quit learning". So glad she was wrong like usual cause my mind learns much easier now than when I was younger

The Truth About Walking Workouts: 9 Myths and Facts


Glad to see some of these dealt with. My brother-in-law thought he had to walk 10, 000 steps a day, to the point where he was obsessive.

The myth of 10K steps originated in Japan many decades ago, I was told at a longevity seminar. I think the words 10 thousand steps in Japanese rhymed with the name of the pedometer manufacturer that promoted this notion. No facts behind it.

At the longevity seminar (conducted by PhD scientists), were told that 5500 steps would be enough to reap longevity benefits. So, a figure that is a little different than what is mentioned in this article.
