Quotations

Johannesburg is a city of gold in which dwell men of iron, but the men of iron are as fragile as clay.

(Harry Seftel, Prof. of Medicine at University of Witwatersrand, referring to the very fragile coronary arteries of the male, white titans of industry of the Johannesburg of the 1970s.)

Notes

  1. There is plenty of evidence to suggest stress is bad for your heart and even evidence suggesting that laughter is good for it. http://umm.edu/news-and-events/news-releases/2009/laughter-is-the-best-medicine-for-your-heart
  2. Eg: Heart attack, stroke or angina. You may also at least consider adopting healthier habits after abnormal test results eg. ECG, cardiac stress test, coronary artery CT scan, a dangerously high cholesterol level and persistently high blood pressure.
