THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

A cardiologist from Archbold spoke about heart disease, the risk factors, prevention and treatment at a Heart Talk event Tuesday.

"The three aspects I always tell patients is that they need to control their blood pressure, exposure to tobacco and to control weight loss," said Dr. Kash Choksi, MD, PhD.

"When I did research I did aging research, I found that in the middle age, ages 40 to 65 is when you really have to maintain your health to have a better older age." said Choksi.

Some tips for people to maintain good heart health is to eating healthy and exercising regularly.

Choksi says also make sure you are educated.
