The Worst Foods to Eat If Heart Disease Runs In Your Family

Summer is already in full swing, and with your social calendars expanding, your food and beverage choices will be as well. Who can resist a little BBQ action on a summer night?

Does binging just one more episode have an impact on your body? And if you choose to hold on to anger and resentment for a little while, you're totally justified, right? Well, maybe. But like a falling row of dominoes , even small decisions have a way of adding up and impacting our lives (and longevity) in meaningful ways.
