Re: Hypertensive and atherosclerotic effects on blood vessels

I think that although we cannot stop aging or do anything about the genes we inherited, we can ensure that we eat a heart healthy diet, get plenty of exercise (well, as much as our bodies can handle), keep the cholesterol levels just right and not smoke or drink excessively. Surely, all of the above steps, if followed long term, should make a world of a difference to our overall health, including the cardiovascular system. It's never too late to start living a healthy lifestyle! There's always some room for an improvement.
