How’s your heart? What are you doing to make it healthier? A new Mayo Clinic survey shows a family history of heart disease is a big factor in how you answer those questions.
In the latest Mayo Clinic National Health Checkup, 67 percent of participants with a family history of heart disease listed dietary changes as the main way they are working to improve heart health, followed by monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol regularly (59 percent) and increasing exercise (51 percent).
In this Mayo Clinic Minute, cardiologist Dr. Rekha Mankad has ideas for dietary changes you can make today to boost your heart health. Jeff Olsen reports.
