Recently one of my favorite bloggers, Ferrett Steinmetz, had some chest pain, and as a precautionary measure went to the ER to get checked out. His initial tests came back normal, but the chest pain continued, and his blood work showed abnormal results. Ferrett had experienced a heart attack, and was immediately scheduled for surgery.
It got me thinking about heart disease.
Heart disease is incredibly common. It’s the leading cause of death in the United States.
So what can we do to prevent it?
