I was shocked to learn that Tim Russert (58) died of heart attack on Fri. I used to watch his program when I was in the US and enjoyed his interviews. May his soul rest in peace. I didn’t know that he had coronary heart disease.
Heart disease is the #1 killer in the US — 850 people every day. Imagine the progress that could have been made if a fraction of the cost of ‘war-on-terror’ was spent on research in preventing and treating heart disease.
