Live Longer, Live Healthier
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. More than 800,000 people in the U.S. die from cardiovascular disease each year—that’s 1 in every 3 deaths. In addition, heart disease can cause many other conditions, including strokes, shortness of breath, water retention and painful swelling, nausea and indigestion, and even erectile dysfunction.
Heart disease is largely preventable. In the early 20th century, it was uncommon, but today – due to poor diet and sedentary lifestyles – it’s a virtual epidemic.
It usually takes years to damage the heart and the cardiovascular system, but once the damage is done, it may be impossible to completely repair. That’s why it’s important to start early on changes that will give you a long and healthy life.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to live a heart-healthy life, especially when it comes to food choices.
The goal of this site is to provide the information and resources you need to make smart choices, leading to a longer, healthier life!
