How to Prevent Heart Disease at Any Age

Heart disease does not discriminate by age. As this video demonstrates, women of all ages can suffer from this life-threatening disease.

To lower the danger of heart disease, it’s important to monitor risk factors and engage in healthy lifestyle habits. Having your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels checked can alert your physician to early and controllable risk factors. Maintaining a healthy body mass index can also lower your chances of heart disease at a young age. For a healthy BMI, take the necessary steps to eat nutritious foods and engage in physical activity.
