Stay away from second-hand smoke at all times. Fact: There are about 7,300 lung cancer deaths yearly and 34,000 premature deaths due to heart disease caused by second-hand smoke.
Don’t sit down too long, ever. No matter how much exercise you do, sitting down too long is bad for your health. This is suggested by research done in recent years.
Don’t sit down too long, ever. Fact: Researchers found that when you sit down too long, there is a related 147% increase in cardiovascular events and a 90% increase in death caused by cardiovascular events.
Sleep right. Sleep is essential. Those who lack sleep get a higher cardiovascular disease risk regardless of health habits or age.
Sleep right. Fact: A study of more than three thousand adults ages forty-five or older found that people who slept less than six nightly hours were double as likely to have a heart attack as those that slept 6-8 hours each night.
Floss your teeth each day. One great indication of overall health is how healthy your teeth are. Those that have gum or periodontal disease have the same heart disease risk factors.
Don’t eat trans fat. ● Everyone needs fat in the diet including unsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated fats. Trans fat, however, is another story. ● Trans fat increases your risk of having a stroke or developing heart disease.
