The article reports a study by Quanhe Yang and colleagues which found that people who met more of seven recommended cardiovascular health factors were less likely to die of all causes, particularly of heart disease. The seven factors include not smoking, being physical active, and having normal blood pressure and blood glucose. The researchers concluded that meeting a higher number of cardiovascular health metrics was also linked with lower risk for mortality from all cancers.
