Heart Health dos and don'ts: Diet, exercise, and other choices

Started Aug. 10, 2023

Abstract or project description

My research paper will focus on heart disease, which can be influenced by several factors such as diet, exercise, disease, stress, alcohol intake, smoking habits, and drugs. I have included all the necessary information one might find useful when looking for strategies to stay healthy, by taking a scientific approach and describing in detail the negative consequences that certain activities can have on one of the most vital organs in the body. I provided information on heart-healthy and unhealthy foods, as well as recommended exercises to improve heart health. This paper aims to explore these factors in more detail to gain a better understanding of the causes of heart problems and how to prevent them.
