Although, there are few risk factors you can’t change like family history, sex or age, you can prevent heart disease by taking some precautionary steps.And, by adopting a healthy lifestyle and taking a balanced-diet today, you can avoid getting heart disease in future. Here are five simple heart disease prevention tips for you to follow:Exercise regularly: Engage yourself in some type of physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day (five days per week or more). Daily exercise can also decrease stress, which is a risk factor for developing fatal heart disease. Regular exercise or physical activity also helps you maintain a healthy weight and reduce the chances of developing conditions that can lead to poor heart health such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Avoid all tobacco products: If you smoke, find a right method to quit smoking. If you do not smoke, then don’t get into it. Stay away from all forms of tobacco products including the smokeless tobacco. Chemicals in tobacco can damage your heart and blood vessels, leading to narrowing of the arteries.

Also carbon monoxide in cigarette replaces some of the oxygen in your blood when inhaled, which forces your heart to work harder to supply enough oxygen, elevating your risk of heart disease.
