Exercise: Aerobic exercise where your body is in motion such as treadmill, cycling, swimming and dancing for a minimum of three hours a week is recommended. In addition not smoking or being overweight are very important. Have your blood pressure and cholesterol and blood sugar levels checked periodically.
