I think that they give Dr. Ornish only three minutes for his talks because he talks so fast.
Watch the map of year to year changes in obesity in the US. It is a great graphical demonstration of what is happening to our health.

This is a dizzying three minute video of a presentation that Dr. Dean Ornish gave at the TED conference in February 2008.
He talks about how changing diet and exercise habits and stress levels can reverse heart disease and help us live longer. Not just by reversing heart disease, which would do it, but by increasing the length of the telomeres at the end of our genes.
The telomeres are like the rope that measures the length of our lives.
If you sometimes feel dizzy or unbalanced there may be a multitude of reasons causing this. Sometimes it may be something as simple as getting a new pair of eyeglasses or motion sickness if you are on a boat. Other times it can be a little more complicated, such as a nerve problem, concussion or illness. I get a little dizzy when I haven’t eaten breakfast and it’s nearing lunch time.

Jim is a tile setter and Mark a bricklayer. If they are working together on a job, they have their special jobs to do. But if Mark has a lot to do, Jim can help him run a few courses of brick. If Jim is slammed, Mark can help set tile.
Our bodies are the same way.
For example, choline is needed to make acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter. The nerve impulse says contract the muscle, acetylcholine is released and attaches to a receptor on the muscle fiber, then the muscle contracts. This is one of its unique jobs, like Jim the tile setter.
Jim Fixx ran every day and was in great shape. He dropped dead of a heart attack at age 49.
How is that possible?
Well, Jim Fixx’s dad died of a heart attack at age 48. We all know that genetics plays a large role in health. Still, genes are not destiny. The more we understand about the way the body works, the better we will be able to nourish it.
But still the question nags us, could the running itself have contributed to his death?
My dad collapsed on the sidewalk in front of the Off Track Betting Parlor on 92nd Street and Broadway.
