RealAge counterpunches with convenient online heart checkup

SAN DIEGO, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- It's true: According to the International Journal of Men's Health, men are sluggish at reporting health problems and seeking medical advice. To counterpunch this tendency and celebrate National Men's Health Month, RealAge.com, the leading healthy-lifestyle Web site, is offering a heart-health checkup that's literally at men's fingertips.

With a few strokes of a keyboard, men can gauge their cholesterol and heart attack risk at http://www.realage.com/health_guides/cholesterol/introduction.asp. After all, heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, and nearly half the men who have a heart attack by age 65 die within 8 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD, are the experts behind the site and the authors of several best-sellers, including, YOU: The Owner's Manual. RealAge.com offers members online health evaluations and makes personalized recommendations for eluding disease and other aging factors.

RealAge.com also suggests these heart-health tips:

-- Pair O.J. with a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, a proven dynamic duo for stabilizing low-density lipoproteins (LDL) in the blood.

-- Avoid soda, which is associated with other eating habits that pack on pounds and undermine heart health.

-- Bulk up with four servings of whole grains each day; it can help reduce hypertension.
