NfA't reporter, Wod» Janet, consulted tome of America's most diiiitiguhhed hsart special/sis to ditpell some of that unwarranted tear. This It the first of h'u two authoritative articles on the heart and current health research. By WADE JONES NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK—Worried about that heart pain? R«lax. Chances are it's not your heart at all, or anything else very serious. Afraid all those strenuous games you once played left you with an "athletic heart?" There's no such thing, Beared that coffee, cigarets or whiskey will be the death of you yet? They won't even hurt a normal heart. These are not the haphazard judgments of a publicity-conscious quack. They are the considered opinions of one of New York's leading heart specialists, who is so publicity-shy he won't even allow his name to be used. La Vale Resident Gets Promotion It can be said, though, that he Is a member of the hoard of directors of the American Heart Association. And during World War II he treated some of our top military brass. In his reassuring statements, he Is not trying to minimize the seriousness of this country's greatest killer— the diseases of the heart and blood vessels. take more than Each year they 745.000 lives— cancer kills approximately 209,000; accidents, 88,000; pneumonia, 47,000; tuberculosis, 34,000. The doctor is trying to ease the fears of impressionable people who become frightened and run to heart specialist*, with the result that the specialists' time is taken from important work. "Let a. certain national magazine carry *. 'heart' article, and 50 per cent of my patients are ringing; me on" the phone the next morning," he say*. ^GOODWILL !• OFFER! The doctor is completely serlou: when he talks about these medica! millstones — people with imaginary ills. He is equally .serious when he tells you about the other kind — people who have every reason to be suffering from heart disease but won't do anything about it until it strikes them down. "The other day I was called in to treat a 200-pound woman who had suffered a heart attack. Although she was 50 pounds overweight, she had never had her heart examined to see if It was being harmed by all that excess baggage she was carrying around." The often reason suffer why from fat people so heart disease is almost as simple as that—excess baggage. "It's just as if a 150- pound person went out and bought a 50-pound bag of flour and carried it every place he went," the doctor says. "Such a constant strain on the heart can often be damaging." * * * The Talue of periodic heart examinations—about once a year is ample—for everyone i* illustrated by the case of an eight-year-old girl here who will "be operated on for a heart ailment next Summer, when school is out. , Her case was brought to the attention of a heart specialist by her g£^>- •fi **"*** «« Silver iiHtStl • Big 450 *q. in.

Here, reporter Wade Jones is tested by the electrocardiograph machine, which amplifies the electrical currents produced by the heart muscle. This tells the specialist If the muscle Is functioninj properly. family physician, who in the course of a routine examination detected a heart murmur. The murmur was not serious, but, in the course of his examination, the specialist discovered another murmur, barely audible. Undetected, it would in time have meant a serious heart ailment. As it is, the operation next Summer will take care, of the matter. It is almost certain that the girl will be perfectly-all right. Most heart pains are not caused by heart disease. Some are, of course, but most are not. They niay be caused by pleurisy, an inflammation of the lung lining; or by sore muscles and nerves of the rib cage; or general tension and an over-active imagination regarding heart disease. In the latter connection, com- plaints of heart disease seem most common among city people, probably because they read and hear more about the subject than do rural folks. There's no proof, however, that the stepped-up pace of city life, .despite its tensions, is in itself conducive' to heart trouble. But, as one doctor pointed out, "city life won't help any if the disease is already there." If you do have heart disease, very few things, aside from specialized treatment, are actually going to help you.and quite a few things can hurt you. If you think you have heart trouble and a specialist confirms it, follow his directions. But if you have a normal, healthy heart it can take a lot of heavy duty and there is not much that will hurt it except disease.
