Even though I know the foregoing is tongue-in-cheek, I think it's

fair to relate my own experience with saturated fat and cholesterol,

so all might learn from my mistake. My education began when I woke up

one morning with a cardiologist I hadn't met before asking me if I

knew where I was. A no-brainer, since nothing else looks like an ICU.

Seems a couple of blocked arteries in my heart led to a loss of

suction followed by collapse as I was getting off a bus. Very much

like Dr Zhivago except neither so dramatic nor so permanent. Right

after telling me how lucky I'd been (about 20:1 odds against

survival) Dr Homans gave me the first of several come-to-Jesus

lectures telling me to lose weight, start getting some serious

exercise and change the way I'd been eating for 20 years. It was all

quite simple--I'd know if I was doing it right every morning that I

didn't wake up dead. I lost the weight, dropped my blood pressure and

cholesterol and started some serious exercise and it worked. I'm in

better shape than I've been in 25 years. It was a very close-run

thing and could just as easily have gone the other way, if the

Hopkins cops hadn't been totally on the ball. Of course if you think

your widow might enjoy a singles cruise every year or so, keep

popping those cheeseburgers.

Read and heed.
