February isn’t just the month of romance, it is also the American Heart Month! Each February health care professional band together to bring awareness to heart disease as well as teach health-related habits to avoid it. Heart disease is a condition in which blood vessels to the heart are narrowed or blocked. Over 17,000,000 people in the U.S. have coronary heart disease and over 200,000 in people in Arkansas.
As we mentioned before, there are ways to prevent heart disease by making healthier life choices. You can begin making choices to prevent heart disease at any age! One of the first ways you can begin is by choosing a healthier diet. Stay clear of fatty and high sodium foods. Next, you can implement physical exercise into your daily routine.
