Foremost preventative cardiologist Dr Warrick Bishop joins Dave to discuss Heart Scans and why they are important.
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.
