Dr. Sorof:
If you are a smoker and you quit smoking it takes about five years for your heart and lungs to get back into what a pre, a non-smoker is. If you are somebody who has high cholesterol and you change your diet and exercise and lose some weight, it can take only 90 days to change the cholesterol and how your body responds to treatments that you are receiving. You can become much heart healthy as well as vascular healthy in just three months with lifestyle changes.
