Example Of Bad Judgement - Poem by Spock the Vegan
Jim Fixx, running guru, and author of several running
books, died of a heart attack at age 52 while running
or shortly after. He was found dead by a passing
motorcyclist beside a road in northern Vermont.
Fixx started running at age 35. He weighed 240 pounds
(110 kg) and smoked two packs of cigarettes per day.
Ten years later he was 60 pounds (27 kg) lighter
and smoke-free. Those are good achievements, but Fixx
had a serious cholesterol-related illness: atherosclerosis.
When he died, one coronary artery was blocked 95%,
a second 85%, and a third 70%. The autopsy showed
that he had had at least three heart attacks weeks before
the one that killed him.
Fixx did not have a regular physician and had not gone
for a routine checkup as his sister had urged him to do.
Fixx did not have a good diet. Dr. Gabe Mirkin, MD said,
'I had dinner with Jim Fixx several times when we spoke
at running clinics together. He always ordered steak.'
