10X Your Chance To Prevent Or Overcome Heart Disease

10X Your Chance To Prevent Or Overcome Heart Disease - Featured Image

Two large-scale clinical studies from Northwestern University School of Medicine actually confirmed that the most important facets of healthcare, such as the no. 1 killer cardiovascular disease, have far more to do with lifestyle than genetics.


The first study evaluated five lifestyle factors: smoking, weight, exercise, diet, and alcohol consumption. More than 2,000 people were recruited for this study. The results showed that healthy lifestyle choices such as not smoking, exercising regularly, and not consuming alcohol excessively dramatically lowered the risk of developing heart disease.


A really important aspect to understand was the more of these lifestyle essentials you addressed, the lower the chance of disease. The risk only decreased by 6 percent for participants who changed just one lifestyle factor such as nutrition, but it decreased by 60 percent (10 times more) for those who made changes to all five lifestyle factors!


“Health behaviors can trump a lot of your genetics,” said Donald Lloyd-Jones, M.D., chair and professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a staff cardiologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.“ This research shows people have control over their heart health. The earlier they start making healthy choices, the more likely they are to maintain a low-risk profile for heart disease.”
