The acutes we are getting seem to be younger and younger lately. My last was in his early 50’s, with not a lot of risk factors, but a penchant for Nicorette gum. And for awhile there it seemed that we had a run on 40-somethings.
What is going on?? I think it must be all of the McDonald’s, Burger Kings, Wendy’s, KFC’s, the list goes on and on, catching up with us. Time will tell, I guess? It’s a little scary, though, especially when I see how much my own kids love their fast food. And don’t think I’m letting myself off the hook either. I love my french fries dipped in my vanilla shake. Ugh. Sign me up for a stress test…here comes that chest pain.
