Tim Russert's Legacy on Heart Disease
Tim Russert's untimely death from heart disease has appeared to have many focus on decreasing their risks by quitting smoking, exercise, decreasing blood pressure and taking cholesterol lowering medications. Kudos to being unbiased in reporting that many of the fancy hi-tech scanners don't help determine whether a future heart attack is imminent. As the reporter correctly pointed out, no test is perfect.
The report also clarifies that Mr. Russert had everything humanly possible to decrease his risk from America's number one killer.
