Health Tip of the Day

Begin With Blueberries

Blueberries may help prevent heart disease because they're high in antioxidants. Start your mornings with this smoothie: For 30 to 45 seconds in a blender, mix together 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup orange juice, 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup low-fat milk.

A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
