Smoking and heart disease, Oct 05, 2011

"Most people associate cigarette smoking with breathing problems and lung cancer. But did you know that smoking is also a major cause of heart disease for men and women?

According to the American Heart Association, more than half of all smoking-related deaths are from cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack or stroke. And a person's risk of cardiovascular disease greatly increases with the number of cigarettes he or she smokes. Smokers continue to increase their risk of disease the longer they smoke. People who smoke a pack of cigarettes a day have more than twice the risk of heart attack than non-smokers. Women who smoke and also take birth control pills increase several times their risk of heart attack, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease."

"4 Lifestyle Changes to Reduce Heart Failure!": Heart Dis, Oct 05, 2011ease Community - Support Group

"Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
A new study shows people who followed these four healthy lifestyle habits reduced their risk of heart failure. 81% in women in 69% in men!

Here they are:

Don't smoke
Lose weight
Exercise regularly
Eat vegetables

I quit smoking at 30 after smoking off and on for 5 years. I'm horrified that I ever smoked...have not decided if I will admit it if my kids ever ask. I'm at a good weight and exercise at least 3x a week. My kids eat an amazing amount of veggies...I do not.

So more exercise and veggies for me! How are YOU doing with this list?
