Reduce your risk of a heart attack
The AHA encourages people to “set goals to reduce your risk” – even if you’ve already got heart disease.
Heart disease is the biggest leading cause of a heart attack, but steps you take today could minimise the risk of having one.
One of the best things you can do for your health is to not smoke, and to avoid “second-hand smoke”.
The AHA advises people to “treat high blood pressure, if you have it”, which means taking any prescribed medication.
