On Facebook All Day? 6 Worst Habits For Your Heart!

I noticed an article today from Yahoo.com stating these bad habits that contribute to heart disease. I think it’s good to be reminded of the dangers we can avoid if we remember to think about it. So, Here ya go! Now let’s all try to do more healthy things for ourselves!

Being Glued to the Tube. According to a 2011 study published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, spending too much time in front of the TV can actually be fatal!

The researchers found that people who devoted four or more hours a day to screen based entertainment mainly watching the tube, had double the ridk of a major cardiac event resulting in hospitalization, dealth or both compared to those who spent less than two hours daily on these activities.

Having a negative attitude An optimistic outlook may cut heart disease and stroke danger by 50%-according to a new Harbard review of more than 200 studies published in psychological Bulletin.

Ignoring Snoring Frequent loud snoring can trumpet obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) a dangerous disorder that magnifies heart attack and stroke risk if untreated.

Forgoing Fiber A high fiber diet boosts your heart health and could add years to your life according to a recent study of nearly 400,000 people, conducted by the National Institutes of Health and American Assoc of Retired People.

Failing to Floss People with periodontal (gum) disease are nearly twice as likely to have heart disease as those with healthy gums. One theory is that the same bacteria that trigger gum disease may also spark inflammation inside the body damaging the arteries.
