Man has heart attack... at the Heart Attack Grill

Quote:
After a Diner suffered a heart attack in the Heart Attack Grill this week an anti-meat advocacy group is asking the owner to shut down according to the USA Today. I’ve added my previous full story below in case you missed what the fuss is all about.

Officials for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine said Thursday they sent a letter to Heart Attack Grill owner Jon Basso, asking him to “declare moral bankruptcy” and close the restaurant.

Susan Levin, the group’s director of nutrition education, says the incident should be a wake-up call that bypass operations aren’t funny. I couldnt agree more. Th e restaurant owner says he hasn’t received the letter. He previously expressed sorrow for the victim, an unidentified man in his 40s. Grill owner John Basso says it wasn’t a stunt, and he felt bad that tourists in the restaurant at the time thought it was a joke.

So earlier a customer eating in the restaurant this week was stricken with a heart attack, according to CBS News. The customer was eating a “Triple Bypass Burger” a 6,000 calorie monster. As he chowed down he went into cardiac arrest. Of course it was all caught on a video that went viral.

I just don’t understand why people would eat this kind of food. Maybe it’s just the atmosphere of the place. Waitresses dress as nurses, and diners dress in hospital gowns. So this guy was all dressed and ready to go to the hospital when he had his heart jammer.

Jon Basso, owner of the Heart Attack Grill, told CBS News, “We throw slogans at you like, ‘Taste worth dying for.’”

“Who doesn’t want to risk a little danger every once in a while? If I can put danger back into hamburgers, all the better.” If you weigh over 350 lbs you can eat for free.

I’ve posted a few articles lately about lifestyle and cancer diagnosis. One important fact was that 50 per cent of the cancer could be prevented through a healthier lifestyle.

The example above is why it seems we still have a long way to go in lifestyle changes.The guy in the video below is Blair River , he died last year, he was 575 lbs and 29.

So the people taking video thought it was a publicity stunt and were apparently having fun with the guy before they realized it was an actual heart attack... lol

Almost all fries use lard or tallow (beef). It's only the stupid places that don't. McDonalds tried it for a while because they were under pressure to get rid of saturated fat. So they replaced it with greasy slimy vegetable oil filled with trans fats. People stopped buying their fries so they switched back, and now we know that it is stupid to replace good fat (saturated) with bad (trans fat). Well most people should know this, but some refuse it because they are dumb.

McDonalds uses canola oil, they never switched back.

Anytime I order something that is fried, I ask the server what type of oil is used (vegetarian and peanut allergy), and have very rarely heard any response other than vegetable at any restaurant.

Edit, I see they didn't switch back to good oil, but use this instead

canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]

YUMMY!

OK then all these restaurants have switched since I last cared about it (early 2000's)

Good thing it's working, heart disease and diabetes rates have gone way down since then, right?

I'm not knowledgeable on heart disease and diabetes rates, but according to the H&S foundation there has been a significant decline in heart disease rates, thankfully.

I'm sure the decrease in smoking rates is a significant factor in that decline.

Decline of cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular diseases are defined as diseases and injuries of the cardiovascular system: the heart, the blood vessels of the heart and the system of blood vessels (veins and arteries) throughout the body and within the brain. Stroke is the result of a blood flow problem in the brain. It is considered a form of cardiovascular disease.

Over the past 40 years the rates of heart disease and stroke have steadily declined. The rate has declined:

25% over the past 10 years
50% over the past 20 years
70% between 1956 and 2002
