Eat Your Heart Out, America

Overeating is one of the worst forms of stress on your heart.  When you overeat, you tax every system of your body and increase the burden on your cardiovascular system.  But most important, when the stomach distends from excessive food volume it compresses the aorta and the arteries around the upper abdomen and pushes up against the diaphragm.  This restricts both lung and heart movement, potentially leading to serious heart disease.  Be good-hearted and eat moderately.  Take some breaths between bites.  Eat a little slower and enjoy the moment.
