You are at a higher risk for heart disease if you have unhealthy habits such as not getting the recommended amount of exercise and a poor diet. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, one person dies from cardiovascular disease approximately every 36 seconds.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among men and women especially those from racial and ethnic groups. Take care of your health by improving your lifestyle habits. Bad habits are choices that hurt your physical or mental health. Overeating, smoking, substance abuse can cause heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Having healthy habits can increase your lifespan, boost your energy, and improve your memory.
