Wanted to pass along a word about aspirin. It arrived in an email this morning with the suggestion that if everyone passed it on to 10 people that one life could be saved. I found 10 people to send it to and thought I would post it here in the hopes that more lives than one could be saved with this simple suggestion.
Here's the email in full:
I feel officially geriatric to be sending this on but it sounds like good information.
Dr. Virend Somers, a cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is lead
author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the
American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 a.m. and
noon, Somers said. Having one during the night, when the heart should be
most at rest, means that something unusual happened, he said. Somers and his
colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
NOTE : There may be no pain in the chest during an heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had an heart attack during
their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake
you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, IMMEDIATELY DISSOLVE TWO ASPIRINS IN YOUR MOUTH and
swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards, phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close
by and state "HEART ATTACK!!!" and that you have taken 2 ASPIRINS
Take a seat on a chair or sofa and wait for their arrival and ....
