USA Today

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men (and women) in the USA, so it’s no wonder that cardiologist Gordon Tomaselli dispenses direct, no-nonsense advice: “Get up and move more, don’t smoke, make sure you control your blood pressure and cholesterol, and don’t ignore symptoms of heart disease, particularly if you have a family history.” It may sound difficult, but the results could be lifesaving, says Tomaselli, president of the American Heart Association (AHA) and director of the division of cardiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore.
