In brief: Overall, yes
Not sure if you're concerned about a specific risk, but heart disease is consistently a leading killer throughout the west, and we know that reducing risks is important at all ages.
A primary care provider can help you to assess your specific risks, but most people will benefit from a diet low in animal fats, regular moderate exercise, and identification/control of specific risks, e.g. High bp.
