Vegan author Rynn Berry died after suffering a heart attack while jogging in Prospect Park on New Year's Eve—and now his half-brother has also suffered a fatal heart attack while jogging. Peter Berry, 60, died while jogging through Central Park on January 19th—just 10 days after his half-brother died. "It’s been a shock for the family," Charles Berry, the last surviving brother, told the News. "It's been terrible. It's still hard to believe."

Was his half brother vegan too?

Sounds like a genetic predisposition to heart attacks in the family.

Whatever you do, DON'T GO JOGGING.

I doubt the veganism helped at all. Starving his body of protein, while subjecting it to the high demands of jogging, probably left his heart rather weak.

Men of that family, get your heart checked and whatever you do, stay out of that park! Reality doesn’t have to be fair or logical.

It is the telomeres!

I am saving myself for the nursing home experience. Feeding tubes, bedsores, twice daily diaper changes and bed rest!

I just fear Obamacare will take this option from me. And I have worked hard all my life!

Jim Fixx, author of The Complete Book of Running died at 52. His father, Calvin Fixx, was struck down with a heart attack at 35. Perhaps Jim's lifestyle -- he quit smoking and began running at 35 -- gave him an extra 17 years.

I once shared a cardiac ICU with a life long Triathlete. The man had spent his life eating right, exercising, competing in triathlons. No family history of heart trouble. One day he experienced chest pains. Had his wife drive him to the hospital. Went into full cardiac arrest upon arrival in the parking lot. Spent his time in the ICU glaring at me, a desk jockey with an inordinate fondness for whiskey, and lifelong dietary habit of black coffee and a hamburger for lunch, followed by a good smoke. Boy was he pissed.

Ah, yes, the joggers, health food nuts and those that look like skeletons as a result of both and other ‘healthy’ attitudes do accomplish one thing.(MAYBE)

They die healthier than the rest of us???

MY KIND OF DOCTOR

Man goes to doctor and says Doc, you will be happy to know I gave up drinking, smoking, fatty foods, steaks, became a vegetarian etc.
DR: “That is commendable. WHY?”
“I hope to live to be 85”
DR: “I say again. WHY?”

LOL. I turned off my auto-correct for that reason. I want the misspellings to be mine alone!
