Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States for both men and women. Your lifestyle, diet and genetics all play a part in your heart health risks and benefits. It is never too early to start taking steps to protect your heart. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends that heart attack prevention should begin at age 20. So where do you start?
The first step is to assess your risk for cardiovascular disease. While some risk factors are hereditary and determined by your family history, some risk factors you have the power to change and positively impact your heart health. Remember, you are your first line of defense against heart disease.
