How well do you know affairs of the heart? Take this true-or-false quiz to find out:

Taking blood pressure in both arms may reveal a higher heart attack risk.

TRUE: You should measure blood pressure in both arms. A difference of 10 points or more means a 38 percent greater chance of having a heart attack — something you should talk to your doctor about.

Coated aspirin is better if you are taking it daily for your heart.

FALSE: If you’re taking daily aspirin for your heart, don’t use coated aspirin. It won’t protect your stomach and not all the aspirin will get into your blood stream. You’re better off with chewable “baby aspirin.”

Dietary fat wreaks havoc on your heart and your memory.

FALSE: Not all dietary fat wreaks havoc on your heart and memory. Saturated fat (in butter and red meat) can harm both memory and artery health while monosaturated fats (in olive oil and fish) actually improve both memory and heart health.
