Health Tip of the Day

Diet and Exercise Still Critical

If you're at risk for a heart attack, you should do more than take cholesterol-lowering medication. Researchers at the University of Texas studied 400 people with heart disease and found that those who took only medication had a 30 percent risk for a heart attack or open-heart surgery. But those who took medication, ate a low-fat diet and exercised had a 5 percent risk.

There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
