"Simple 7" Heart Goals Tied to Longer Life
Fri, 05-03-2013 - 10:53am

Here’s good news from the American Heart Association (AHA): People who strive to meet seven heart-wise goals from the AHA just might help extend their lives.

In a study of more than 7,600 U.S. adults reported in Circulation (Volume 125, page 987), researchers found that people who met at least five AHA goals were much less likely to die of cardiovascular causes over six years than were those who met none of the goals.

How many of these goals are you meeting? Are there others that you are willing to work on?
