    Let’s see how many CNN stars drop with a heart attack or are led off to mental health institutions in the next “3-5 years”. It’s not a CNN ‘prediction’ that President Donald Trump will have a heart attack in “3-5 years”, it’s their wicked, undying wish. It was predictable that CNN would rush to air their bitter disappointment when White House Dr. Danny Jackson gave the president a clean bill of health.

    Please lift my parents up in prayer for their healing; my dad had a dangerous duodenal ulcer bleed, which was fixed but also had a slight heart attack for which he underwent a heart catheterization yesterday. He also has terrible pain despite a cervical bone spur removal and fusion almost a year ago. My mother has damage from past multiple lung infections and has lost a tremendous amount of weight, recently from stress and long-term from insomnia. They are the most loving, meek and precious souls a child could have, and serve the Lord as mighty as Moses and true...

    The best medicine for a person who goes into sudden cardiac arrest is an electric shock. That jolt temporarily stops the heart, along with its rapid or erratic beat. When the heart starts itself up again, it can revert to its normal rhythm and resume pumping blood to the brain and the rest of the body. The sooner this happens, the better.

    Heart attack victims who are divorced are significantly more likely to suffer a second attack, a large study has found. Research on 30,000 men and women who had experienced a heart attack found that those who had been through a divorce were 14 percent more likely to suffer a second attack. Experts said it was not clear whether the heartache of a marital breakup had a direct effect, or whether divorces were less likely to look after their health without a partner looking out for them. The study by Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, examined a...
