CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta doesn't want his life to end with a heart attack, and doesn't want yours to end that way, either.
That's the thinking behind "The Last Heart Attack," his special Saturday at 8 p.m., which looks into the latest research. It suggests that with lifestyle changes, folks can stave off the dreaded, potentially fatal, pain in the chest.
"I don't want to be felled by a heart attack," says Gupta, CNN's medical correspondent. "I could could get hit by a double-decker bus tomorrow. That I can't control. This [health] I can control."
The program was a year in the making and looks into a variety of diet and health changes that can help prevent heart attacks.
