The risk of cardiovascular disease will continue to haunt anyone, no matter any healthy as you. And a way to reduce this risk is very diverse and the average easy to do. One is the familiar walk for 10 minutes every day.
Even the method is claimed to reduce the risk of heart attack by 50 percent.
"When I say nearly 80 percent of heart disease can be prevented, many are surprised to hear that. Though there are many things we can do every day that seem trivial but it can give a real difference in order to keep our heart healthy," said Dr.. Martha Grogan from the Mayo Clinic.
Grogan also stressed that inactive lifestyle or sedenter may increase the risk of heart attack as much as smoking. But this risk can be reduced only by the simple act of choosing to come to the table to discuss the work of co-workers directly rather than just sending an email.
"Moving, even just 10 minutes a day, for someone who had been living sedenter can reduce the risk of heart attack by 50 percent," he concluded, as quoted by the Daily Mail, Tuesday (02/05/2013).
Agree with Grogan, other heart experts, Virend Somers also revealed that in addition sufficient hours of sleep is also vital for heart health.
"Sleep is a necessity, as well as food and water. Was not a luxury in itself," he said.
To emphasize the importance of lifestyle changes, other experts from the Mayo Clinic, Dr.. Randal Thomas explains, "High blood pressure is dangerous, that's why the 53-year-old male smokers higher chance of heart attack by as much as 20 percent in the past 10 years."
"But you are still given a second chance by switching to a healthy lifestyle because it will reduce the risk of heart attack significantly," he concluded.
