Tips to ensuring a healthy heart The month of February is a month focused on hearts and we want to help you ensure that your heart is a healthy one. Now is the perfect time to turn your attention to keeping yourself and your family safe from heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans. Consider these facts from the American Heart Association: Heart disease kills more people than all forms of cancer combined. Heart attacks affect more people every year than the population of Dallas, Texas. 83% believe that heart attacks can be prevented but aren’t motivated to do anything. 72% of Americans don’t consider themselves at risk for heart disease. And 58% put no effort into improving their heart health The good news is that heart disease is preventable in most cases with healthy choices, which include not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, treating high blood pressure, getting at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a week and getting regular checkups. To learn more about specific heart health topics, visit here.
