    Hi folks,

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta will have an hour special "The Last Heart Attack" on CNN Sunday Aug 21 8PM Eastern Time. In my area, Salt Lake City, it will be on CNN 6-7PM and 9-10PM. Check you cable service provider for times.

    Here's a little clip about it

    I hope we are nearing a tipping point.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    Amazing! Even using Esselstyn's heart attack proof phrase. Thanks for the info.
    EngineerGuy replied to twinb63's response:
    Hi Joe,

    In my area (Salt Lake City, Mountain Time), it all got pre-empted by the Gadhafi crisis. Nothing got shown here, either at 6PM or 9PM (Mountain Time). I'll watch the listings to see if it's repeated.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    Hi Folks,

    Saturday Aug 26 at 8pm Eastern Time. I'm in Mountain Time, so that's 6pm and again at 9pm.

    Who knows if Gadhafi will preempt it again.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
    EngineerGuy responded:
    Hi folks,

    Gadhafi and now Irene. Both have pre-empted the CNN special. We don't know when it will be re-scheduled. (If the drug companies realize this shows people how to get off drugs, CNN will be under terrific pressure to never show the special !

    Anyway, here is a short blog from Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

    Also, the clips

    "Saying No to Heart Disease"
    "Myths and Truths about Heart Attacks"

    are very good.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
