“I ended up as a cardiologist by chance." As a young fellow at high school, I was good at mathematics and technical drawing together with physics and chemistry and thought my career would be in engineering. As fate would have it, I had the opportunity to do work experience in a local civil engineering company at that time. Not understanding what civil engineering was, over two weeks I observed mainly office based work focusing on retaining walls and draining systems. Unfortunately, I don’t think that is was a fair representation of the breadth and interest that engineering could offer, but I didn’t know that and I was no longer enthusiastic about engineering from the experience.

You are over 50 and want to look after your health as you age. Or you have read the statistics such as one Australian dies every 28 minutes from heart disease, and you want to do everything you can to reduce your risk.
My name is Sue and I have followed you since the start. Most of this time I have been living in Kota Kinabalu in Borneo, Malaysia but recently returned to Australia permanently due to my Husband having some health issues and we now living in Brisbane. Which brings me to you! My Father died several years ago of heart disease. He was a heavy smoker, lack of exercise and although at the time his diet was probably considered to be healthy whereas today it wouldn’t cut it (in my eyes anyway). He had 2 brothers who consequently died of heart disease also. All three of them were in their early 60’s.
