Keeping my heart healthy and heart disease at bay has always been a concern of mine. My grandfather on my dad's side died when I was less than a year old from a heart attack. Though I met him, I really have no memories of him. And growing up, I watched my father make strides to stay healthy and active. Having had both of his parents die before the age of 50, he was determined to not give his genetics any additional help. Staying active and eating healthy, leading a healthier lifestyle, and keeping the "bad stuff" in moderation was something I learned to do in my life early on.
