Bill Clinton's Health Scare

After feeling chest pains and mild discomfort for several days, Bill Clinton decided to check himself into a New York hospital on Wednesday. Back in 2004, Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery. According to this doctor, the discomfort Clinton recently experienced was due to clogged arteries ,and the situation was remedied by inserting two stents, which open the arteries to improve blood flow.

Clinton's health problems date back to a lifetime of junk food. In addition, Clinton's schedule has become increasingly hectic with the many humanitarian efforts he has taken on, including relief in Haiti.

Heart problems like Clinton's cann't be solved by a surgery or by stents. This will take a lifetime of maintenance and care.

But, Clinton should really focus on improving his diet. For instance, start incorporating margarine into the diet. Choose whole grains over white, processed items. Fill each plate with fruits and vegetables and use meat as a "meal addition."

Simple steps like these will help ensure Clinton is around to continue his heroic efforts to those in need. Oh, and taking a breather every once in a while probably wouldn't hurt him either!

TGIF people, TGIF!
