How can I protect my children from angina?

Even though angina often develops as people age, healthy habits formed when you are young can decrease the chances of angina when you get older. You can protect your children from angina later in life by teaching them how to make healthy lifestyle choices. This includes teaching them not to use tobacco products or other drugs, how to choose foods that are healthy, and how to deal with stress in a healthy and constructive way. In addition, establishing and modeling a regular exercise regimen will help them continue their healthy habits for a lifetime.
