How to Prevent Heart Attacks

Heart Attack Grill

Two views of why heart disease prevention does not work well: one, personal responsibility is not given the attention it deserves.

And two, physicians are not trained or incentivized to advise patients to stop smoking, improve their diet and become fit…maybe because people don’t think they can make a real difference in their own health. Which is wrong: it is *never* too late to start.

Both of these commentaries are tragic.

People need skills they don’t have, and don’t have easy access to: preparing, choosing and shopping for food well, improving mindset, productivity and sleep, and optimizing the home, work and mobile environments for the best lifestyle choices.

Health care begins at home…not in the doctor’s office. Too often, it ends in the hospital, where we manage disease intensively. At which hospitals excel.

What I want to do professionally over the next 5 years is help people like those in these videos—people at risk for or with chronic disease (heart, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, many cancers)–avoid the hospital. And avoid the Heart Attack Grill.

The key is to make caring for yourself–and lifestyle–as fun as a vacation. My first step: helping men, and the women who love them Refuel.
