Save Scouting


this by eating fewer canned soups and pro- cessed foods like hot dogs and lunchmeat, bacon, potato chips, and frozen dinners. Rinse canned beans and tuna to remove much of their sodium. Put the saltshaker away. Eat potassium-rich foods such as bananas, oranges, potatoes, and spinach, all of which help reduce blood pressure. 7WALK THIS WAY. Exercise controls your weight, which reduces the strain on your heart and lowers your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. It makes your arteries more flexible. And it is a stress release. The government recom- mends getting 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise most days of the week. But that doesn’t mean you have to join


a gym. Even walking, which is free and can be done anywhere, is all you need. But you must do it briskly to raise your heart rate (and huff and puff a little) to get the ben- efits. Even three 10-minute walks a day is a good start for heart health.


8ACE A TEST. To forecast heart problems, see your doctor for an annual checkup. At the minimum, your checkup should include a review of your family health history and a standard lipid profile, mea- suring total cholesterol, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, HDH (“good”) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Also ask your doctor about a baseline electrocardiogram or the more advanced blood tests: Lipoprotein-a, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and homocysteine, which look for markers of heart disease. Many deaths can be prevented if people


made healthy lifestyle changes and more doctors practiced aggressive prevention, says cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., author of The South Beach Heart Program. ¿
