Proper diet and exercise can help reduce your risk for developing Coronary Artery Disease. Dr. James O'Keefe, Preventive Cardiologist for Cardiovascular Consultants of the St. Luke's Mid America Heart Institute, describes the proper diet for a healthy heart.

It is important that everyone takes a vital role in his or her own health. The most important thing you can do to keep you and your heart healthy is exercise everyday. It doesn't have to be strenuous exercise; it can be moderate, like going for a walk. Secondly, don't smoke, it's an incredibly addictive habit, but your life depends upon it: you can't smoke if you want to stay healthy from a heart's standpoint. Thirdly, you have to eat right. You can't stay healthy without having the fruits and vegetables, lean protein, tea and water in your diet. These three important things compile James O'Keefe, MD's "short list" of things you have to do every day. Additionally, one alcoholic drink a day can help reduce risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular abnormalities.
