      Extend this to 2105 and add Robots, GreyGoo, and a Meteor. Heart disease is to terrorism what a large asteroid is to heart disease.

      Also, saying "smoking related" is as useful as saying "cheese burger related" for heart disease.

      Love to extend the timeline... but I have no data. Add self-directed and performed medical surgery to that list too.

      You want separate smoking-related cancer + HD from other forms of C+HD. It's a powerful and more insightful story.

      HealthYes! does heart scans. They do all kinds of non-invasive tests at corporate wellness screenings. You can host one! They offer their services for a lot cheaper than a hospital. They're based out of Austin, but they also serve the Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas area. My father caught his heart disease through www.HealthYes.com and it saved his life.

      Shelly - that's very cool. No Boston-area HealthYes - bummer.
      Looking for something like it....

      But most of the issues above are based on our western diet and lifestyle. I'm making the slow switch to more leafy, green things and less meat and dairy.
