Heart-spotting Contest Entry

From fellow Vancouver Islander Tony B.:

Here is a shot of a very old heart on a large log at Stephenson Point in Nanaimo.

I, for one, wonder if AS + SF are still an item…

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Hearts and bikes…my two obsessions! Thanks to Ingrid L. for this one:

I came across this photo last week in a store and knew it needed to be hanging in my family room! It now is, and it makes me smile every time I walk past. The title is “Love Bike” and I love it! It would be perfect for you as well, Mr. Cyclist.

There’s a new heart-spotter on the scene! Chris F. sent me this graphic that linked to a recent article on Yahoo!

"Why Are Minorities at Greater Risk for Heart Disease?" – a heart-health article on Yahoo! Health

“Why Are Minorities at Greater Risk for Heart Disease?” – a heart-health article on Yahoo! Health (submitted by Chris F.)

From the article:

African-American men and women have double the rate of fatal heart disease of their white counterparts of the same age, according to an alarming new study published in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) this week. Even though deaths from heart attacks and heart disease have dropped since the 1970s, the decline has been steeper for whites than for blacks, “widening a longstanding disparity,” the researchers reported.

Another study in the same issue of JAMA reports that up to 80 percent of US Hispanic/Latino adults have one or more major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, the leading killer of Americans. As a result, “this relatively young ethnic group is at high risk for future CVD morbidity and mortality as it ages,” the researchers predict.
