Seven heart-healthy behaviors can reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. In a prospective study, by Enrique Artero, PhD, of the University of South Carolina, and colleagues, published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, those who met 3-4 of the American Heart Association’s ‘Simple Seven’ heart-health criteria had a 55% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality than those who met no more than two of those practices over 11 years.

Four core behaviors

  1. No smoking
  2. Normal body mass index
  3. Engaging in physical activity
  4. Eating healthfully

Three parameters

  1. Cholesterol lower than 200 mg/dL
  2. Blood pressure lower than 120/80 mmHg
  3. Not having diabetes.
