A restaurant has been in the news lately. It is called the "Heart Attack Grill" located in Las Vegas, Nevada. They are famous for cooking burgers which are LOADED with fat and cholesterol. The burgers have names like "Triple Bypass" and "Flatline". The personnel are dressed as pretend doctors and nurses. Of course, it is all for fun. But there are several signs throughout the store warning about the health risks of consuming their product. The reason it is in the news is that recently a customer actually had a heart attack while eating one of their burgers. Some people are demanding that the store close down. But the owner insists that everyone has a right to make a choice about what to eat, as long as they are informed of the risks. You can't tell people how to live. God has been trying since time began and it doesn't work. Would you eat at that restaurant? I would like to try it. But, to go there frequently is clearly an act of self destruction. As for the man who got sick, a heart attack does not happen suddenly. It is built up over time. Maybe this burger brought him to the breaking point.

I heard about this in the news too and i think I would like to eat there at least once since it sounds very tasty even though it is not healthy for you at all. As for the person who got a heart attack while eating there, you are right that these sort of things build up over time and he must have been eating unhealthy food or had other health problems too for him to have a heart attack. I am trying to eat healthy food on a daily basis but once in a while I lie to indulge in tasty food which is not very healthy for you so I think eating there once would be fine...

I been reading upon this in the news lately too. The burger the guy was eating was called heart attack burger so the news said. But like you said heart attacks just don't happen when starting to eat a burger, but just eating that one burger brought it on worse. I wouldn't go to that store because i have health conditions so I know my risk plus with it being on the news so much makes me second guess about gong there even if I didn't have health issues.

Wow! that is cool! I am sure many fatties will love to frequent this burger joint no matter it is named "Heart Attack Grill" or " Hell Gateway", so long as the restaurant serve tripe cheese burger and plenty of fatty french fries, they will come in drove before dawn and eat to their heart contend.

Really good idea to make such restaurant. They name it according what it can couse when you will be eating their meal offen. I doubt about that just one of their burgers can you couse a heart attack. I agree with a statement that everyone has a right to choose what to eat. There is enough information about how dangerous for human healt are burgers and fast food. But anyway, I am eating it just some times, maybe once per 2 months so I am not scared of heart attack of it. :-)

I would like to visit that restaurant. I defineately wouldn't have dinner there every day, but I think that it could be interesting to visit it once or twice. I would like to see the place and eat some of their unhealthy food I am usually trying to eat healthy food and I also want to lose some weight, so doesn't sound like a place where I would become a regular customer , but I would like to visit the restaurant once or twice.

I have to admit, although bad for you, it sure does sound delicious! I don't normally eat food like this, but, like they say, in moderation is ok. You had one sentence that caught my eye "But, to go there frequently is clearly an act of self destruction." This is what I agree with completely. People tend to overeat and eat fast foods constantly, and it's so easy to do. If you can have self control, and do this only once in a while, it wouldn't bother me at all. Yes, I would eat here and I'm sure I'd enjoy myself. Then I would come back two months later. In between, I'd be eating normally and watching cholesterol and fatty items. Mmmmmmm, sure does sound good right now. I'm due for a good yummy meal, lol!!!
