Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. The good news is that 80% of all cases are preventable with simple everyday habits you can easily change. The American Heart Association lists these 7 habits as the most important behaviors people can use to protect their cardiovascular health:
- Eat right
- Lower blood pressure
- Lower your cholesterol
- Know your blood sugar
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Don’t smoke
Dr. Donald Lloyd-Jones, a cardiologist at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and the chairman of the heart association committee, states: “What accrues to people who maintain that package of seven things at more optimal levels is really quite amazing – it’s sort of like the fountain of youth. They are much healthier and they have a substantially better quality of life.”
