On September 10, 2003, about two weeks after my 49th birthday I suffered a myocardial infarction in my left anterior descending artery. My left ventricle ejection fraction from my most recent test is about 41%. Normal is 55% – 75%. If you don’t know what “ejection fraction” is, here is a definition.
Since my heart attack, I’ve been very interested in recovering and preserving my health as much as I can. I have become very interested in antioxidants in particular. The purpose of this blog is to present articles and links to research in antioxidants, heart disease and general health. I will also interject my ongoing experiences as one who has suffered a heart attack.
