According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease and stroke are the leading cause of death among both men and women in the U.S. However, understanding your risks can help you tip the scales in your favor.
Certain risk factors cannot be changed. Men aged 45 or older and women 55 and over are at a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Having a family history of heart disease also increases your risk.
However, there are also a variety of lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of developing heart disease. And the sooner you embark on making those changes, the better. Fill out this form for a free heart sreening voucher.
