Risk & prevention

Prevention is key

Prevention starts with knowing your risk. Nine in ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Almost 80% of premature  heart disease and stroke can be  prevented through healthy behaviors. That means that habits like eating healthy, being active and living smoke free, have a big impact on your health.
