Heart diseases remain to be the leading cause of death in the Philippines.
The good news, however, is that these are preventable by making daily right choices—by getting regular exercise and eating a balanced diet.
With unhealthy food as one of the main drivers of cardiovascular disease, eating habits play an important role in avoiding these conditions.
