NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiovascular disease accounts for 40 percent of all deaths in the United States, more than all forms of cancer combined.

Take control of your health to help sustain a healthy heart now and for years to come.

a family history of the disease, you do have control over your weight

and dietary salt intake, two other major risk factors.

two to three times higher risk of heart failure. Decrease your risk by
