There’s no better time to learn more ways to love your heart.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. – it’s responsible for about one in four deaths. While there are some risk factors you cannot control, like family history and age, you can control about 80 percent of heart disease risk through healthy lifestyle choices. Start by eating a heart-healthy diet, getting at least 2 ½ hours of moderate-intensity activity each week and don’t smoke.
