Date:12/17/2007

CHICAGO, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The holiday season is a great opportunity to relax, spend time with family, reflect on the past year, and focus on new goals for the next 12 months. These top resolutions, offered by the American Medical Association (AMA), arm people with the knowledge to become a healthy new you in 2008.

4. Keep heart healthy: Heart disease is the number one cause of death in this country. Having cholesterol levels and blood pressure checked regularly by a physician can reduce the chances of heart disease and stroke. People who have a higher risk of heart disease may benefit from taking low-dose aspirin; ask your doctor if this applies to you.
