Think heart-healthy during the month of February
February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans, but we can reduce the rate of heart disease through a healthy diet and lifestyle.
For the first time, the American Heart Association has defined what it means to have ideal cardiovascular health, identifying seven health and behavior factors that impact health and quality of life. We know that even simple, small changes can make a big difference in living a better life. Known as “Life’s Simple 7,” these steps can help add years to your life (see sidebar).
The American Heart Association has a new national goal:
By 2020, to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent.
