The journey toward heart disease
Breaking up your daily exercise into three 10-minute bursts can be as effective as 30 minutes of continuous activity.
Exercise and lifestyle changes can thwart heart failure down the road.
Symptoms of heart failure—fatigue, shortness of breath, and swelling in your legs and feet—may creep up slowly or appear dramatically. Years of toil against high blood pressure, plaque-clogged arteries, and excess body fat gradually erode your heart's capacity to move blood through the body effectively. The condition often germinates from the seeds of lifestyle choices planted much earlier in life.
