I read the article and found it interesting. I thought what he quoted for the cost of the CT scan was a little high, and I know my insurance has always covered it after I met my deductible. I get one every 6 months so I know about how they are. Probably who he went to - a high end doctor. But then my insurance covers preventive medicine. I guess I've been lucky, all the insurances that I've had has stressed preventive medicine.

Ya, I saw the article, but haven't read it yet...I did read however, that we're not built for endurance running, believe it or not...sprinting, yes, marathoning, nooooo...Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I did two things for you because I am *such* a nice guy.

I reduced it to a tiny-url. (tinyurl.com)

And I attached it to this comment.

tinyurl.com/BillWeirCatScan

And because this is such an important issue, especially for runners. Too many runners simply ignore going to the Cardiologists because "I'm a runner. I run everyday. I am a marathoner." Then they die at the finish line and everyone wonders why?

My doctor told me that almost all cardiac sudden deaths during endurance running can be avoided by early detection and treatment of things like what Bill Weir found.

Thank you Thank you Thank you for this very important video.

Good morning all: I went to Yahoo to get my emails and saw an article on Bill Weir getting a full body CT scan and they found something. This journalist works out hard at the gym every morning and they found out he is a heart attack waiting to happen. They said he probably wouldn't be alive in 5 years, he is 44.

I don't know how to do links and couldn't figure it out, but the aritcle is on Yahoo if anyone is interested. It is pretty interesting. Just thought I would pass it on. If anyone reads it and knows how to link, maybe you can do that for others.

Have a Happy Wednesday(hump day)

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.
