Meeting those factors that promote good cardiovascular health can reduce death risk, according to a new study. Researchers from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta found that people who conformed to more than seven of the behaviours that lead to good heart health, such as not smoking, healthy diet and exercise, have a lower mortality risk. However, only a small percentage currently meet more than seven of the recommendations in the United States. Unfortunately, the same is most likely true for people in the UK, many of which do not have normal blood pressure, blood glucose, total cholesterol levels and weight. The findings were the result of an investigation that examined the trend of health specifications for heart wellbeing and their relationship to the causes of cardiovascular complications and mortality. Some 44,959 Americans were involved in the study, which used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys of 1988-1994, 1999-2004 and 2005-2012. Good cardiovascular health is essential to prevent against a range of conditions, such as stroke. Find the nearest Barchester care home.
