Measure Up For Your Heart

Think twice before having that second helping of pie.  New research in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reveals that people that gained as little as 9 pounds in 2 months experienced a drop in blood vessel function, which is a precursor for heart disease.

If you notice your pants are feeling a little snug, take action.  The study’s authors found that once people shed the pounds they gained, their blood flow returned to normal. 
That’s news worth taking to heart.
