Storyboard Text

  • Hi Grandpa!! How's everything going with your atherosclerosis? I heard Becky's mom had it. Something like 4.6 million people in the U.S. have it
  • *cough cough*
  • Yes hun, quite a few people get it. I guess I wasn't too lucky. I'm sorry that my bad decsions are now indirectly affecting you and your mother. I've left you with a great burden
  • It's not all your fault grandpa. You know 50% of older people get a form of this disease and our family DOES have a history of this and great-grandma's smoking habit probably didn't do you any good
  • Thanks hun but...I could've done more to keep myself healthy
  • When arteries deposit plaque and fatty material on their inner walls 15 thousand deaths a year If you're above 40 there's a 50% chance of developing it
  • Like what Grandpa?
  • Well I had a bit of a drinking problem before your mother was born, and after she was born I was working so hard and smoking about a pack a day
  • That's why I never want to see you do any thing like that! YOU WILL DIE! Stay healthy kid. Go for runs, don't smoke like I did. Treat your body well, kiddo.
  • A history of diabetes can also increase the risks
  • High blood pressure, obesity, poor diet and exercise are some other controllable risk factors
