Aislyn Putnam, a Jesuit High School freshman, gets connected for an EKG by technician Sherri Medina as part of the Play Smart program. About 12,000 teens have received free heart screenings. Many young people can have heart trouble without symptoms.

Ask former Central Catholic High School football star Hayward Demison. After rushing for a Ram touchdown in 2010, Demison collapsed to the turf. His heart stopped for two minutes until he was revived with CPR. Tests showed that Demison’s coronary artery wasn’t supplying his heart with enough blood during those big runs.

Ah, chicken nuggets, cheeseburgers and pizza, foods at the pinnacle of hundreds of years (or at least 50) of the evolution of American cuisine.

Not to mention the apex of salt, trans-fats and refined carbohydrates, alluring ingredients that make for fast-food yumminess.
