2017 Spring News Letter

High blood cholesterol is often the culprit we blame when it comes to our heart attack risk. Yet there’s another key
player that has little to do with what we do or don’t eat – stress. The release of adrenaline increases heart rate, blood
pressure and respiration rate, all of which put arteries at greater risk. People under stress tend to drink more alcohol,
smoke, exercise less or not at all, eat compulsively and in turn gain weight – all of which are risk factors for heart
disease.Spring quarterly newsletter 2017
