The materials also discuss heart disease, lifestyle risk factors for heart disease, diet and exercise routines to adopt in order to improve health, the long-term impact of heart disease, the basics of cholesterol, a review of body mass index, a closer look at the role of excess salt in the development of heart disease, an exploration of the importance of fruits and vegetables to good health, and much more.
