Life's Simple 7
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. The American Heart Association says taking the following steps toward improving your health can help prevent cardiovascular disease. They call the steps "Life's Simple 7." They are: get active, eat better, lose weight if you need to, stop smoking, control your cholesterol numbers, manage your blood pressure and reduce your blood sugar levels. These changes are inexpensive and are possible for everyone. Start with one or two steps at first, then work toward accomplishing the others.
