Of course there's the usual stuff, like knowing your family history, watch your cholesterol, cut the fat and hit the gym. But, for the first time, the new guidelines say women should talk to their doctor about taking Aspirin to prevent stroke. That's always been a man thing.

Also new from the AHA, a decision, that although antioxidants can provide a powerful punch against some cancers, they do nothing in the prevention of heart disease.

The guidelines are published in the journal circulation.
