Everyone has heard that a healthy diet and lifestyle can significantly lower your risk for cardiovascular disease. But what does this actually mean? According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. Cigarette smoking accounts for more than 440,000 annual deaths. Exercising a few minutes every day can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. Small changes in your diet can add years to your life. Learn about these preventative measures and more from Dr. Denker.
