    Actually, the Interheart study is pretty big news. Thanks for posting it!

    INTERHEART is a tremendously important study for a variety of reasons. Much of our previous information about risk factors was derived from developed countries. This study, in contrast, was performed in 52 countries representing every inhabited continent. In addition, unlike many previous studies, it had an adequate sample of women, and the researchers assessed several different psychosocial risks using a series of questions selected from previous predictive studies of cardiovascular events.

    It just confirms what most people in this forum already know.

    No, it confirms an opinion that most of us have. It's always nice to find out that your hunches might have some validity.

    So y'all are telling me I need to get my arse off the new LaZboy sofa, turn off the TV and drive somewhere and get some exercise?

    Too bad they didn't monitor internet usage

    BTW doctor busted me, now I am walking 2 miles a day, and riding MORE on weekends.

    Of course. As we add more labor-saving devices, a species that has spent the previous 500,000 years constantly moving about has suddenly decided to sit still.

    Could that ever work?

    I read a science fiction short story years ago that covered that. Don't recall where or the author. It was probably in Analog. But the gist of the story was that the human race had evolved to the point where everyone lived in these little cocoons. Only at great expense and personal hazard would someone request a face to face meeting.

    What about a study relating the number of heart attacks with the amount of internet use?

    What about a study of the stress induced by taking studies seriously.

    This is science fiction? The regular suburban experience of car commuting and a large house surrounded by a moat of grass.... cocoon?

    No, I have read that one too...this was a short story. I have been reading Analog Magazine for over 30 years and have read quite a few back issues when I found them in libraries along the way.

    The concept of cocooning isn't all that unusual, except perhaps for me...I cannot stand to be cooped up indoors for any long period of time, even less so when deprived of windows allowing daylight in. I am not claustrophobic, just don't like being indoors much.

    Watching TV while driving a car will cause a heart attack.

    Me too, I can't stand being cooped up. I have never gotten a gym membership for that reason, preferring to exercise outdoors, even during our Canadian winters.

    I suppose on this forum, many of us feel this way....

    Yes, me three. The only time I ever spent an entire day indoors was when I was sick.

    What about people who work 8 hours a day at a desk, watch tv while eating potato chips, sleep 8, then discover their driveway is completely blocked with snow, they have a meeting at 9:00 and the snow blower won't start?
