Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, an American will have a coronary event about every 25 seconds. The common risk factors include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and tobacco use, or second-hand smoke.
How do you try and protect your heart and keep it healthy? Have you tried adopting a healthy lifestyle, for example, lowering fat intake (avoiding red meat) and adding more activity to your day can help lower cholesterol? Cardiovascular exercise is recommended, but I know it can be difficult for us with mobility issues. I try to get moving in the pool or do some modified squats on my bed. Even if your workout is broken into shorter sessions throughout the day, it can still reduce your risk of developing heart disease.
