  • To me, the most extraordinary example of poor preparedness took place in the last week of September 2005. The South had just begun the long recovery from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and was bracing for the anticipated onslaught of Hurricane Rita. After Katrina, local, state, and federal governments had been widely criticized regarding their disaster management and were fearful of more missteps.

While certain risk factors cannot be changed, it is important to realize that you do have control over many others. Regardless of your age, background, or health status, you can lower your risk of heart disease—and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
