UI researcher still has lots to offer

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- One of the oldest heart disease researchers lives in Central Illinois.
URBANA -- One of the oldest heart disease researchers lives in Central Illinois. Fred Kummerow is 98-years old. He's a professor emeritus at UI.

Kummerow says he's learned a lot about healthy hearts during his past 60-years of work. He credits some of his own research for keeping him in the lab all this time.

His advice for people who want to live as long and healthily as possible, is to stay away from trans-fats and make sure to eat enough protein. Kummerow says he plans to keep doing research for as long as he can.
