Check out some ways to prevent heart diseases

Heart disease is a leading cause of death, but it’s not inevitable. While you can’t change some risk factors such as family history, sex or age.there are plenty of ways you can reduce your risk of heart disease.

Below are some ways which you can prevent heart diseases.

1.Don’t smoke or use tobacco

One of the best things you can do for your heart is to stop smoking or using smokeless tobacco. Even if you’re not a smoker, be sure to avoid secondhand smoke.

Chemicals in tobacco can damage the heart and blood vessels. Cigarette smoke reduces the oxygen in the blood, which increases blood pressure and heart rate because the heart has to work harder to supply enough oxygen to the body and brain.

There’s good news though. The risk of heart disease starts to drop in as little as a day after quitting. After a year without cigarettes, the risk of heart disease drops to about half that of a smoker. No matter how long or how much you smoked, you’ll start reaping rewards as soon as you quit.
