PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — They’ll be pedaling for a good cause Sunday at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

It’s a Spin-In to raise money for the cardiac center.

Ted Durkin is managing director of UBS Pennsylvania, a key sponsor of the event. He says teams pedaling stationary bicycles hope to raise more than $350,000 for a good cause.

“Research and also to purchase equipment. The equipment is incredibly expensive, because you’re dealing a lot of time, from a cardiac standpoint, with issues in utero and research based, equipment based, and then funding overall in the allocation of CHOP,” said Durkin.

There are two spinning sessions: 8 a.m. to noon, and 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.

    Most heart disease is caused by multiple nutritional deficiencies and – like all other nutritional deficiency diseases – it can be reversed by supplying the missing nutrient(s). Dr. Thomas E. Levy has been a cardiologist for over 30 years. In his book, Stop America’s #1 Killer, he lists 33 nutrients “…for optimizing the ability of the artery to regenerate itself and reverse any existing atherosclerosis…the typical diet does not even come close to supplying enough of these essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients.” As someone with a family history of heart disease, I have been taking this list of nutrients since 2000. I am now 63 years old and recently had an MRI. The doctor declared, “Ray, your arteries are clean as a whistle!” Needless to say, I am a big fan of Dr. Levy and am dedicated to disseminating this important information; so, I email this list – along with the proper dosages – to anyone who requests it.
