The time to think about your heart shouldn’t only be after a cardiovascular procedure; it could be right now. Being proactive about your heart health can mean eating the right foods, exercising regularly, and getting routine check-ups. It can also be more comprehensive, including testing your cholesterol levels and your blood pressure.
