When it comes to matters of the heart, there’s usually hope. Lifestyle changes can dramatically lower your risk for most kinds of heart disease, including the most common type, coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to a heart attack.
To help protect your heart:
- Eat foods that are high in fiber, and low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Stay active.
Avoid smoking and alcohol.
