CURSE OF HEART DISEASE IS FOUND IN MUMMIES

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

HA! IT'S ALL THEIR FAULT. IT IS HEREDITARY.
IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL TODAY THERE WAS AN ARTICLE ON RESEARCHERS USING CT SCANNERS EXAMINED 22 MUMMIES DATING AS FAR BACK AS 3,500 YEARS.CHALLENGING LONGSTANDING ASSUMPTIONS THAT CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IS MAINLY A MALADY OF MODERN SOCIETIES. THEY WERE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE HEARTS, ARTERIES OR BOTH OF 16, 9 OF WHICH HAD CALCIFICATION.
MEAT FROM CATTLE, DUCKS AND GEESE ETC. WHICH THEY HAD TO PRESERVE IN SALT TO SURVIVE. TOBACCO WAS NOT A FACTOR, THEY DIDN'T SMOKE.
THEY SAY THAT THE DISEASE IS AS OLD AS THE PYRAMIDS. AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE KNOW NOW DAYS AND IT IS STILL ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH.
I WILL SAVE THE ARTICLE IF THERE ARE ANY ???'S.
GUESS WE DIDN'T CHANGE TOO MUCH HUH? ONE GREAT REASON WE NEED SPARK!
