Summary

Because of advances in medicine and technology, people with heart disease are living longer, more productive lives than ever before. But preventing heart disease is still the best weapon in the fight against this condition. As with anything in life, there are no guarantees. You could do all the right things and still develop heart disease, because there are so many factors involved. But by living a healthier life, you could delay heart disease for years or minimize its damage. Whether you are already healthy, are at high risk for heart disease, or have survived a heart attack, the advice to protect your heart is the same.
