  • (1888PressRelease) July 21, 2009 - Insights is launching a new series on heart health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S. Keys to prevention include quitting smoking, lowering cholesterol, controlling high blood pressure, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising. Insights will be covering these stories and more.

    Heart health is an important aspect to the growing and aging population. People should be concerned about the healthiness of their heart. British Heart Foundation (BHF) Medical Director, Professor Peter Weissberg, said, “Rather than agonize over which assessment tool is best, we should be urging people to visit their GP and have a heart health check.”

    “These segments help the viewer teaching them about heart health, as well as solving some common problems and clearing up misconceptions,” said the Executive Producer.
