of strokes can be prevented by having a healthy lifestyle.

In the last century, the leading causes of death have shifted from infectious diseases, such as flu and pneumonia, to long-term chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, more than 1.2 million Americans die of these two diseases each year. Paradoxically, these chronic diseases are a consequence of living longer than ever — but even if we’re living longer, are we living better?

After surviving two bouts of cancer, Mayo Clinic cardiologist Stephen Kopecky, M.D., set out to discover behaviors people can adopt to live longer lives free from chronic illness and disease. He discovered that the answer to preserving health and improving quality of life lies in just six habits that require small changes to your daily life. The secret, however, lies not just in the steps themselves but in how you accomplish them.

After 30 years of research in the field of cardiovascular disease prevention, Dr. Kopecky is sharing what he’s learned. Live Younger Longer highlights six manageable steps anyone can embrace to live a longer, healthier life.
