Excerpt- Is Someone Having A Heart Attack or Stroke?

By now, many people are aware that olive oil is very high in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). And those MUFA’s have been medically proven to reduce the risk of heart disease. However, nothing is 100% foolproof, and if someone you are with were having a heart attack or stroke, would you know what signs to look for?

Someone sent me an email the other day and mentioned how helpful a page in my cookbook was. It is only one page, but that page teaches you how to recognize the signs and symptoms associated with a heart attack or stroke in progress. Sometimes the person who is displaying these symptoms may not know what is happening to them.

Please read an excerpt from Olive Oil Desserts and learn the signs. Who knows… someday you may save a life with this simple information!

Heart Attack Warning Signs

• Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of the chest
that lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back.

• Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

• Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.

• Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

• Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of
the body.

Stroke Warning Signs

• Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.

 • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.

 • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.

 • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause.

Not all of these warning signs occur in every heart attack or stroke. If some
start to occur, get help immediately. Heart attack and stroke are medical
emergencies! Call 9-1-1
