Are You At Risk for Heart Disease?

A recent report found that eating poorly in your youth affects our heart health as we age. Researchers surveyed over 4,000 young people and found that 90 percent of the boys had “poor diets” and they were more likely to have higher blood sugar levels than girls. Among girls, 86 percent had poor diets and 14 percent had dietary habits considered intermediate, reported the Los Angeles Times.
