Prevent Heart Disease At Any Age

A recent study suggests that heart disease risk factors in young men have a powerful effect on long-term risk of death from heart disease. The study, which was published in the March 20, 2001 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine, followed nearly 20,000 men aged 18 to 59 over a 20-year period. They noted that the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease was directly linked to risk factors such as increased cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, and advanced age. So, even though heart disease is most common in middle age, it's not too early for you to reduce your risk of dying from heart disease by lowering your risk factors now!
