Looky What I Found!

I recently came across this little gem as I was doing research for the article I mentioned in my previous blog. It's a radio interview of Dr. Davis debating with a "Neanderthal" Harvard School of Medicine professor about the value of heart scans. Davis pretty much chews up the poor, knuckle-dragging, old-school cardiologist. This is a "must hear" primer on how to approach heart disease. I'm going to suggest that Davis consider posting it in the open content area of the Track Your Plaque website.

CLICK HERE to listen (this is a .ram file so you will need the free RealPlayer to play). It's a twenty minute interview so, unless you download the file to your computer before playing, it takes a while to queue up - be patient.



So, Where Ya Been HeartHawk?

The answer? Finishing my latest expose' as a feature article for Track Your Plaque. You can find it by clicking this link The Bankrupting of American Healthcare: $20 Billion, Many Lives Lost Each Year. It's in the open content area so you don't have to be a member to read it.

WARNING: Being a numbers guy I went a little nuts but the functional cost calculator I put at the end of the article lets anyone change my assumptions and run their own "what if" scenarios. I can't wait for people to start throwing stones at my calculations. Fire away!

Still Kicking,
