  5. Gregory Thomas:

    I think the lesson learned is that humans are inherently at risk for heart disease whether they live in ancient Egypt or North or South America or Europe, i don't look at it as our fate is to die of heart disease, I look at this as a lesson that we humans have had this challenge from the beginning of time, but we can prevent or delay it. And we should use this as a reminder that we should do everything we currently know how to delay it: exercise, a lean diet, avoid smoking, taking medication that we need.
