The Ultimate Example of Preventative Medicine

Hey guys,

This is not my typical blog post, but I just watched this great news clip and wanted to share it with you. It’s just a short video of Bill Weir from Nightline, talking about a routine interview that became a very personal experience. He went to interview Dr. David Agus (physician to the late Steve Jobs, Lance Armstrong, and others), and during the interview process was subjected to a number of tests just to be able to talk about cutting edge medical technology. During the testing, Weir, who is outwardly the very vision of health and vitality, found out that he had a potentially serious issue he had known nothing about. I loved this little video, both because of its relaxed tone and very important message, and wanted you to see it if you hadn’t yet.

Click here to watch the video. Who knows, it might save your life.
XO,

      I agree wholeheartedly, and believe that we spend way too much time diagnosing, and not enough time preventing from the get-go. However, as you know, I didn’t post this as a promotion of technology, but rather as a reminder that we are not invincible. I know far too many people who wait years between doctor’s visits, live off of frozen pizzas, and just because they can run a few miles and have nice skin, they’re perfectly healthy as far as they’re concerned. It’s a good thing to be mindful of mortality, I think.
