to Benefitspro, around 75% of the population has a “heart age” that’s greater
than their chronological age. Just in case you don’t know what a person’s “heart
age” is, the CDC defines it as “the calculated age of a person’s cardiovascular
system based on his or her risk factor profile. The risks include high blood
pressure, cigarette smoking, diabetes status, and body mass index as an
indicator of obesity”.
