"It's very important because you're able to look ahead at what your risk is for heart disease," Michos says. "A person's risk is much greater when a family member has had a heart attack early in life."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
