According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and is affecting both men and women at a younger age. Now more than ever, it’s important to know your personal risk factors for heart disease, what a heart healthy lifestyle looks like for you, and the warning signs that could identify the onset of a heart attack.James Parker
