hoaxThe April Newsletter which was recently published on this site contained an article entitled ‘How to Survive a Heart Attack When Alone’, which had been forwarded to the Editor in good faith by Jim Lockhart, after receiving it from what he considers to be a ‘reliable source’. Thanks to an alert reader, we have learned that this is, in fact, a scam which has been circulating on the internet for some years now. You can read about it on http://www.hoax-slayer.com/survive-heart-attack.html

In future, any medical advice received from a non-medical source for inclusion in the Newsletter will be checked for accuracy before being published.
