In brief: Live right
Maintain normal body weight.
Exercise daily. Don't smoke. If you do, stop. Eat a vegetarian diet. Get your cholesterol checked and treat it if it's too high. Get your blood pressure checked and control it if necessary. When you turn 50 (women: 65), take baby Aspirin daily. Most importantly, choose the right parents.
