Top 5 At 7:45 – Ways To Protect Your Heart


We protect our selves against many different things in our life. But what about our heart?

I was recently reading a piece in Men’s Magazine on line, and it talked about our heart and how we can protect it. Today on the Top 5 at 7:45, we’ll talk about how to protect that precious blood pump to maybe help us stay alive long enough to either see the Chicago Cubs win a World Series or to see the U.S. pay off her national debt.

The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays on KGAB Mornings with me, Gary Freeman and sponsored by First Eduction Federal Credit Union.

  3. Run In Doors When It’s Hazy Out: When it’s hot and hazy outside, and you’re running, researchers have found that this can cut the supply of oxygen in the blood and make it more likely to clot.
  4. Rid Yourself Of Second Hand Smoke: It’s been said that people exposed to cigarette smoke for 30 minutes – three times per week could have about a 26 percent chance of being at a greater risk of heart disease.
