(I always wondered what caused my mum’s blue merle rough collie bitch to have a heart attack.
She didn’t have lots of salt, just enough, her cholesterol was never an issue, she didn’t eat any fruit but had veg, she lived much like all the other dogs in the pack and they didn’t have heart problems, she didn’t smoke and wasn’t a heavy drinker. All in all she led a blameless life as far as the medical profession’s advice goes.

Well done to Dr. Salim Yusuf for dispelling so much of the myths surrounding the causes of heart disease.) Cheers, Susan O’Neill
