Washington: According to a study, four out of five adults are at risk of early death due to preventable heart disease.
“Heart disease is a largely self-inflicted disease,” Fox News quoted the statement of Sheila Caldwell, a heart attack survivor. “Hopefully, knowing the ‘heart age’ is a wake-up call and, for some of our participants, it has been.”
Experts found that most people thought they were in ideal health, and the reality is that most people are no. 99 percent of the U.S. adult population has at least one of the seven cardiovascular health risks.
Those risks are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood glucose, unhealthy weight, tobacco use, physical inactivity, and poor diet.
According to experts, the easiest thing for people to manage is improving diet, reducing weight, and improving exercise because those things, generally, we can all do it.
