Be Aware!

High blood pressure and high cholesterol usually have no warning signs and can lead to heart disease. Lack of brain-stimulating activities invites Alzheimer's.

Target numbers are:
  • Blood Pressure: no more than 120/80
  • Total Cholesterol: 200 or less
  • Low Density Lipids (LDL): 130 or less
  • High Density Lipids (HDL): 40 greater

Actions to improve your numbers:

  • Stop smoking
  • Increase your physical activity – Ballroom Dance, walk, swim, or ride a bicycle at least 20 minutes a day, three days a week.
  • Avoid fats that are solid at room temperature. For example: animal fats, cream, butter, fat in dairy products and hydrogenated fats.
  • Lower your stress level
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Eat a balanced diet including five servings of fruit and vegetables daily
