I just received a great question from Mario about heart function, potential symptoms and high altitudes. In his email, Mario asked me, “Hi Adam – I have a question about my heart. I just got back from Lake Tahoe, California. I was in the casino and noticed that I was getting short of breath. Is altitude something I should worry about? Does altitude impact heart valve function? Thanks! Mario”.

I don’t know about you… But, I can’t leave Costco without getting a hot rotisserie chicken. And, it’s not just Costco. I’m into all types of rotisserie chicken from different grocery stores and ethnic restaurants. I simply love the taste and different flavors.
