Yesterday while attending my local Chamber of Commerce meeting, we heard about a business owner in town who has a grown child (although still relatively young compared to me & most of the others at the meeting) who recently suffered a heart attack. Of course our collective thoughts and prayers go out to him for a speedy recovery.
A lady sitting near me said “Oh my God, that’s too young!”. I agreed that it was. She then went on to ask me “Is there anything that us 40 & 50 yr olds at the meeting could be doing to decrease our chance of a HEART ATTACK?” My
reply was a resounding “Absolutely!”
This lady who I like to kid around with because she knows very, very little about health looked at me like I was nuts. I guess she expected me to say that we were all doomed to suffer such a fate.
I went on to explain that just 30 minutes prior to the meeting I had taken all of my AM nutritional supplements, about 14 of them in all. Once again, I got the ‘you must be off your rocker’ glance from her. I told her that by taking 4 of these supplements, I had just decreased my chance of DYING of a HEART ATTACK by a whopping 81% as compared to her. In fact, she takes NO nutritional supplements, and her idea of a balanced breakfast is ‘Fruit Loops’ cereal because she saw a commercial once that stated it was healthy cereal due to being fortified with 17 vitamins & minerals.
I mentioned that diet also had a lot to do with it. If all you eat is stuff out of bags, boxes and cans, survey says – that’s not a very healthy diet.
If you’d like to know about the 4 supplements I’m referring to, all of which we keep in stock at http://www.AFCvirden.com , please respond to this blog post, and I’ll be happy to explain further.
In the meantime …. in the video below, I go into some detail about 3 of the supplements and why cholesterol-lowering statin drugs are a total racket:
Yours in health,
