Avoid a sedentary lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight

The practice of moderate-intensity physical exercise is essential to prevent overweight, obesity, abdominal obesity, and cardiovascular risk factors. Abdominal obesity is considered the most dangerous, since excess fat accumulates voluntarily in different organs, such as the body.

The key to avoiding obesity is to have a balanced diet that includes fresh foods, vegetables, fruits, cereals and fish. But it is also important to reduce the consumption of salt, saturated fats and sucres.

A balanced diet will also help control cholesterol levels and maintain recommended limits of less than 200 mg/dl for LDL cholesterol. This will help us avoid the formation of plaques in the walls of arteries and reduce the risk of infarction.

Control glucose level and blood pressure

Diabetes and hypertension also pose a cardiovascular risk, so it is important to control blood sugar levels and blood pressure.

Early detection and good treatment and control of all of these pathologies will help reduce the risk of cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases.

Stop smoking and environmental pollution
