Preventing a Myocardial Infarction

Preventing a Myocardial Infarction

There is an old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is definitely the case with heart disease and myocardial infarctions. As a largely preventable disease, a person can lower his or her chance of a myocardial infarction through knowledge and choices. Knowledge involves understanding myocardial infarctions, heart disease, and the associated risk factors; choices means making good decisions to control these risk factors.
 
Regardless of your age, background, or health status, you can lower your risk of having a myocardial infarction -- and it doesn't have to be complicated. Protecting your heart can be as simple as taking a brisk walk, whipping up a good vegetable soup, or getting the support you need to maintain a healthy weight.
