As usual this is several years out from application in humans. It is encouraging news nonetheless. I think my time will end before human trials even begin, but I hope it eventually pans out for others.

Obviously great, but I can't think that loads of people will use it as an excuse to carry on eating the sort of diet that gives you a heart attack in the first place. I know I would.

well, it's not like I was living according to a particularly wholesome style, I love fatty food and sweet drinks.

Oh, and when I come up with the desire to do physical exercise, I lie down until it stops.

We want this not only for people who have heart attacks at a young age because of a genetic disorder, but for garden variety heart attacks as well.

My solution for avoiding heart attacks: Stop gardening.
