Being Greek isn’t enough to prevent heart disease

You may have heard on the news or read an article about how people in Greece, especially on the islands, live to almost 100. This is attributed to good living. Plenty of fresh air, seafood, low stress and don’t forget about the wine. But most of us don’t live on a Greek island and that means we are at risk of heart disease.

Yanis Varoufakis to TPPI: Europe had better wise up

Well-known economist and now Syriza candidate Yanis Varoufakis argues the best way forward for Greece and the Eurozone is investment, not, as he put it, Ponzi austerity.
Syriza continues to lead the polls and many beginning to take a serious look at what the party’s plans are to deal with Greece’s vicious cycle of economic crisis.
