What you eat and what you dont eat-in large part determines whether you develop heart disease. Here are a few tips to help you keep the number one killer at bay.

CUT THE FAT:

That means a total cholesterol intake of less that 300 milligrams a day and a totla intake of less than 30 per cent of total calories a day.

EAT YOUR FRUIT AND VEGGIES:

A dutch study of more than 800 men between the ages of 65 and 84 found that the more bioflavonoids these men consumed (they got them from tea, onions and apples), the less likely they were to die from heart disease.

DON'T FORGET THE GARLIC:                    

Several studies indicate that one-half to one clove of garlic, eaten daily, can significantly lower total cholesterol. High cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease.

Of course, if you suspect you have a heart problem you should see your Doctor right away.
