Forget the symmetrical hearts (filled with chocolates), those are SO last week.

But February IS American Heart Month, a time for all of us to focus on what our real (as opposed to our metaphorical ones) need.

Dr. Brian Morrison of Southern Oregon Cardiology watched as advances in science greatly boosted the chances of people surviving episodes like heart attacks.

But he points out that there's really nothing terribly modern about the keys to good heart health: eat well, exercise, and don't smoke.

Listen to the interview for more heart insights.
