In a 70-year lifetime, the average human heart beats more than 2.5 billion times. It is an incredible organ; however, smoking, poor diet, and physical inactivity can cause serious damage. Simple steps like taking the stairs instead of the elevator can make a big difference over time. Choose low sodium foods and include plenty of fruits and vegetables to help prevent the conditions that can damage the heart such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
