Retired Heart Surgeon Dr. Dwight Lundell Celebrates 65th Birthday by Placing First in Arizona Ironman Competition

How does a 65 year old retired heart surgeon place first in an Ironman Competition? Dr. Dwight Lundell practices what he preaches. And he did it in less than 13 hours which qualified him for the Kona, Hawaii Ironman.

Scottsdale, AZ PRWEB (Vocus) December 11, 2008 -- Retired heart surgeon Dwight Lundell gave himself the perfect 65th birthday gift. He placed first in his class at the Arizona Ironman competition ( held in Tempe, Arizona.

His first place finish also qualifies him for the Kona, Hawaii Ironman competition. As an added bonus Dr. Lundell completed the course in less than thirteen hours with a time of 12 hours and 57 minutes.

Dr. Lundell gained notoriety lately with his new book "The Cure for Heart Disease." ( In it he sites the latest medical research to argue against the conventional wisdom as to the cause and appropriate treatment of heart disease. It seems to be causing some controversy among the medical and drug company establishment, who may be out to discredit Dr. Lundell.

Dr. Lundell stated, "As I operated on hundreds of patients there was something nagging at me. They did not exhibit any of the established risk factors for heart disease. As I conducted more research into this anomaly, it became clear that the cause of heart disease is chronic low-grade inflammation and the cure is simple and inexpensive. My conclusions are highly disruptive to a multi-billion dollar industry but I don't particularly care, the research is valid and more of it is coming out every day."

Dr. Lundell preformed over 5,000 heart surgeries before retiring. He stays active with his training, writing and speaking engagements. He continues to fight against heart disease today as the founder of The Healthy Humans Foundation, ( a non-profit focused on open communication and education of health and wellness research and advocacy.
