Episode Description for Human Heart, Cosmic Heart

Heart disease needs no introduction.  We know that we need to exercise and eat well to avoid a risk of heart attack.  But what if we don’t understand everything the way we thought we did?  Dr. Thomas Cowan discusses is book “Human Heart, Cosmic Heart” in this interview.

 Dr. Risk’s Thoughts

None of us are strangers to heart disease.  I love that Dr. Cowan is challenging our views on the heart, and that it’s not a pump.  After reading his book and interviewing him, it only made sense.  I feel we often get stuck in old ideas as a society and refuse to look at things differently.
