Unhealthy Behaviors Could Slow Progress in Reducing Heart Disease and Stroke

by Grace H. on Thursday, December 13, 2012

The American Heart Association recently released an update on rates of heart disease and stroke. Read the article here.

While much progress had been made in the last decade to reduce these rates, continued unhealthy behaviors are putting this progress at risk. Poor eating and exercise habits may be to blame.

High blood pressure and cholesterol medications may only reduce the nation’s risk of heart disease so much. The rest must be managed with healthy behaviors. What will you do to improve your health and reduce your risk?
