Heart Disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women and responsible for approximately 25% of all deaths in the US. The main risk factors for cardiovascular disease includes: high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and lack of physical activity.
Prevention plays a big role in controlling heart disease’s incidence rate. Aerobic exercise activities combined with strength training has proven beneficial in preventing cardiovascular disease. And a heart-healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is the key to a happy and healthy heart.
Due to continuous public awareness and prevention campaigns, highlighting the importance of a exercise and healthy diets, heart disease incidence rate has significantly decreased in 40 of California’s 58 counties. “Still, many go undiagnosed and therefore it is imperative to talk to your healthcare provider in order to take all necessary precautions, including: checking cholesterol and triglycerides, limiting alcohol, lowering stress level, and making healthier food choices.”
