My husband has heart disease in his family. I will admit that he is the healthy one in our marriage. Because of his family history of heart disease, he watches what he eats, exercises, and eats steel cut oatmeal every morning. But did you know that more women die of heart disease than men? It is true. So eating a heart healthy diet and exercise is important for me in heart disease prevention as well.
