PreventionCardiovascular diseases are one of the leading causes of death around the world. Consequently, it is important to understand how to prevent them.
Adopt healthy life habits is the best to prevent the appearance of cardiovascular diseases. Coronary disease evolves as long as the risk factors are present. These factors are called “coronary disease risk factors”. The larger the number of risk factors, the higher the risk of developing a disease. Therefore, it is important to control these risk factors to prevent progression of the disease, and even reduce it.
