Hereditary heart disease

If this runs in your family and you have not had your heart checked with the appropriate tests by a Cardiovascular Dr, do yourself a favor and do so now. I don't care how good you feel and age doesn't matter, trust me.... Just passing this along for any other heard heads out there such as myself :beer

    and keep yourselves in decent shape.

    Some form of cardio daily is just about necessary these days with all the junk we take in.

    Lots of fruits and vegetables...cut way back on meat and dairy.
    Several "superfoods" out there that have the potential to reverse the disease. Do your own research.

    The biggest things are regular Dr's visits and No smoking. Smoking will kill you fast with a family history of heart disease.

    I had a heart attack last yr. I told my cardiologist Dr my cholesterol has always been good from 125-133. He told me they don't go by that anymore. Remember last year (or the yr before 2015-16) they were saying bad teeth might have something to do with it? He even checked my teeth.
