How old is YOUR heart?
Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death in the United States. According to the CDC, our hearts may be older than our chronological age. Why does it matter? Prevention.
By calculating the “age” of our hearts, we can take necessary steps to reduce our risk of heart attack and stroke. Half of American men and nearly half of American women have a heart age that is five years older than their chronological age.
Do you have any risk factors for heart attack such as high blood pressure, smoking or family history? Don’t wait – find out your heart’s age and make an effort to match it to your chronological one.
More than 3 in 4 heart attacks and strokes can be prevented or postponed by controlling cardiovascular risk factors. What are you doing to keep your heart healthy?
