This September-Afib Awareness Month-Huerta and her cardiology team at the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai urge people to learn more about AFib, the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to stroke and heart failure.

Former smokers who stick to a healthy lifestyle have a lower risk of dying from all causes than those who don’t engage in healthy habits, according to a new study by researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health. The reduced risk of dying was observed for specific causes, including cancer and heart and lung diseases. Lifestyle interventions have not been robustly studied in former smokers, and these new findings could have important implications for the 52 million former smokers in the United States.
