Yes, we are all at risk for cardiovascular disease, which is the #1 killer. You can improve your chances and decrease your risk by:
- eating a proper diet
- maintaining your ideal body weight and losing weight as necessary
- reducing your stress
- avoid toxins such as tobacco
- talking with your doctor about your individual risk factors
Note: Exercising and keeping a proper diet can reduce your mortality risk by almost one-third, and that is before you take the first medicine.
