LIVELINES: HEART HEALTH CALLS

The recent hospitalizations of President Bill Clinton and Vice President Dick Cheney.. have once again focused our attention on heart disease. As a matter of fact, The Institute of Medicine says Americans have forgotten how dangerous high blood pressure can be.

A new report says doctors should treat patients more aggressively.

Dr. Gregory Bruce from Memorial Hospital was our guest. He said he disagrees with the report, and feels diet and exercise are an important first step.

This isis such a serious problem, because it can lead to deadly outcomes, and the CDC spends 54 million dollars a year on heart disease.
