For every 1,000 people born in the same year, cardiovascular disease would claim 427 lives while all other causes combined would equal 573. It’s time for consumers to learn how they can lower their risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes through managing their lifestyle. Registered Dietitian, Barbara Day, M.S., R.D., C.N., has developed a 4-week Heart Smart for Your Heart: Lifestyle Strategies for the Health of Your Heart and Body, Too!
