6 Ways to Protect Your Heart

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women. In fact, more women die each year from cardiovascular disease than from all forms of cancer combined! These are grim statistics, but there are things you can do to lower your chances of developing this deadly disease. Protect your heart with these steps:
  • Get your blood pressure tested regularly.
  • Eat more heart-healthy foods, including fish, poultry, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and cheese and skim or low-fat milk.
  • If you drink alcohol, limit your intake to no more than one drink a day.
  • If you smoke, it's high time to quit this deadly habit!
  • Get your cholesterol checked at regular intervals.
  • Start exercising on a regular basis — even 20 minutes will do the trick.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about your personal heart-health history and genetic risks. Do everything you can to prevent cardiovascular disease — and share this lifesaving advice with your friends, sisters, daughters, and the other women in your life. You'll be glad you did!
