Genealogy / Family History
One huge advantage of knowing about family history is that
sometimes it can help you to trace and pinpoint occurrences of
My father and two of my brothers had all died of heart attacks
at a fairly young age. My dad and my eldest brother were in their
forties, and my younger brother was just thirty two years
In tracing back my paternal side of the family, I discovered
that rarely did any of the males live beyond the age of forty
four, and many had died of heart disease before they reached the
ripe old age of forty. The females in the family line hardly ever
suffered with any heart trouble at all.
It occurred to me that the heart disease in the male line was
too frequent to be coincidental, especially as it all seemed to
be because of high cholesterol levels, leading to a fatal heart
Once I had concluded my investigation, I discussed this with a
heart disease specialist, and after examining all my paper work,
he called my nephews in for medical checks. In two of my three
nephews, he discovered that they had severe cholesterol levels
(above the 15 mark) and needed immediate medication.
The information was too late to save my dad and brothers, but
at least my nephews are okay.
A different branch of family history, but a useful one.
