The heart

Thank you for all the pages on health subjects, especially those concerning the heart. My father and older brother both died from heart attacks, so I am concerned about the subject. They were both       smokers.

The big ad by the Centre Pontiac Santé listing the causes of heart attacks should be everywhere; reminders to make people aware of what they are doing. I would also add poor mental attitudes, inactivity, not spending time with friends, and high stress or worries to the list of risk factors. Loneliness and inactivity are deadly for seniors. Watching television all day is    actually harmful; just sitting, not drinking enough water, and so on. You should print that list every edition!
