You’ve probably heard it before, but it’s worth repeating:
- Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women
- Diet and lifestyle choices can have a dramatic effect on the development of heart disease and other conditions affecting the cardiovascular system
It’s never too late to start taking measures to prevent the onset or progression of cardiovascular disease—the more changes you make now, the healthier you’ll be in years to come. In addition to getting regular physical activity and not smoking, what you eat makes a big difference.
