Hi Selmer, I am very much aware that 20 bpm and 50 bpm are different. My point was that bradycardia in whatever form or fashion it comes in is slow heart rate and is a actual diagnosis not something "almost meaningless".
I am not too sure what you consider regular old fashioned heart & cardiovascular disease connected by diet in part. I know your diet can help aid and maintaining heart health. I do know that genetics play a huge factor in heart disease. I am not so sure anyone has developed heart disease due to bad diet, I could be wrong here (IDK).
On the diet issue my cardiologist recommended to me what he thought was best, set me up with a dietician to consult on it. I have followed it ever since so I havent questioned it. Well, except for the snickers I get once in a while at work.
You are a huge help here Selmer and your knowledge is greatly appreciated, I just wanted you to know that I have appreciated all your help. Really if you want to put up a thread on better diet habits or good diet habits or whatever go ahead.
