    Proof heart disease is an ancient problem: Autopsy finds 3,500-year-old Egyptian princess had clogged arteries

    44 out of 52 mummies examined had clogged arteries

    An Egyptian princess who lived more than 3,500 years ago is the oldest known person to have had clogged arteries, dispelling the myth that heart disease is a product of modern society, a new study says.

    To determine how common heart disease was in ancient Egypt, scientists performed computer scans on 52 mummies in Cairo and the United States......Among those that still had heart tissue, 44 had chunks of calcium stuck to their arteries - indicating clogging.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    I forget who said it, but a great line nonetheless: "If your grandparents wouldn't recognize it as food it is most likely not good for you."
    WOOF!
