    well who would have thought that a 29 year old former wrestler that weighed 575 lbs would die from
    eating burgers  from the "Heart-attack Grill"?roll

    PHOENIX — A 575-pound man who gained a measure of fame as spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill — a Phoenix-area restaurant that unabashedly touts its unhealthy, high-calorie menu — has died.

    Friends of 29-year-old Blair River say he died Tuesday, possibly from contracting pneumonia after a bout with the flu.

    I'm sorry he thought this was not a problem and defied any logic,eating and promoting this unhealthy lifestyle.

    I'm pretty sure you can't get the flu or pneumonia from eating a hamburger.

    A poor diet can lead to many physical problems which in turn can cause a person to catch colds, flu, pnemonia and bronchitis much easier than someone that follows a healthier diet.  It is a shame that there are sooooo many individuals that are obese because of eating the wrong foods. 
    It is a sad thing to see anyone die at any age, but much more heartbreaking when it's someone so young who might have had a lot to offer in society. 
    Condolences to all of those who loved him.

    Meh it was his choice to eat like that. I have heard a lot of people saying that the Heart Attack Grill should be shut down, but isn't America about the freedom of choice?

    I say let the people decide, most of the people who go there probably don't have it as part of their dietary staple, I know I like a fat filled cheese burger now and then. 

    If enough people decide that they dont want to eat there then it will go out of business.
