Blood clots, usually make the papers when a mostly healthy person falls over after prolonged sitting, like during an airplane flight, or sitting at work for long periods. Our previous vice-president Dick Cheney, suffered a blood clot after a trip last year. NBC reporter, David Bloom died of a blood clot in 2003 after spending days in a tank while covering the Iraq war. According to our past Surgeon General, there are almost 100,000 deaths connected to blood clots every year. Risks for blood clots include; increased age (over 65), recent surgery or fractures, auto accidents, falls, prolonged sitting, obesity, smoking, or hormone replacement therapy drugs.
