What really causes heart disease

My mother died of heart disease... and HER mother died of heart disease.

A family member shared this recent article from a heart surgeon about what really causes heart disease... and what is amazing is this information is ALSO in Dr. Anderson's Habits of Health - which is the foundation of the program Take Shape For Life.  He is also a surgeon who has been speaking out on THESE SAMES THINGS!

This is what I want to BREAK THE TREND in my family and stop heart disease from taking us way too soon.  My mom was only 56 and that is TOO YOUNG!

Just wanted to share that article - it's not too long and well worth reading.  :)

Hey! I have finally caught up to your current post! :)

My grandma died of heart disease/diabetes. My dad has had bipass surgery and has thyroid issues, among other things. I am working on breaking the trend, too!

Thank you for commenting on my blog. It's a nice surprise to see a comment! :)
