February is National Heart Disease Awareness Month

December 3, 2019

– [Narrator] It’s time for a
change of heart this February. In honor of American Heart Month, show your loved ones how much you care. By giving them tips on heart health, you might just save a life. Heart disease is the
leading cause of death for both men and women,
but it doesn’t have to be. You can control and prevent heart disease by making a few healthy
changes to your lifestyle. Get a checkup. At least once a year, get
checked for conditions that put you at risk for
cardiovascular disease, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Exercise regularly. Getting as little as 30 minutes
of physical activity a day can reduce your risk of
cardiovascular disease. Eat a healthy diet. Choosing healthful meal and
snack options can help you avoid cardiovascular disease
and its complications. Stop smoking. Cigarette smokers are two
to four times more likely to develop coronary heart
disease than non-smokers. Empower yourself and visit
