day of heart disease —more than,
from all other causes of death!
“The cost in suffering to fami-|
lies and economic loss to the,
state is incalculable.

darker if these facts were not
counter-balanced by the progress

four who have suffered a heart
attack go back to work, and
many stroke patients can be
helped to return to near-normal!
