Last year I read this article on Holidays and Heart Attacks.

According to those in the know, we have just started Heart Attack Season – when the number of heart attacks is on the rise.

Why? Could be many reasons
– stress
– too much drinking (alcohol)
– too much eating (cheese balls, rich meats, you name it!)

Also, add in the fact that folks think their pain is just indigestion, and local hospitals will see people wait before they call for help.

So this Holiday Season – Please, remember to take care of yourself, and your loved ones. Exercise, eat less, drink less, and if you do experience pain – seek treatment immediately.
