The most important step you can take to protect your heart is understanding your own individual risks for heart disease. These risks differ for all of us depending on our age, diet, physical conditioning, and smoking status, just to name a few.
American Heart Month is a reminder that we all must be vigilant in the fight against heart disease, the nation’s number 1 killer. Talk with your doctor about your risks for heart disease and to schedule blood pressure and cholesterol screenings to get an assessment of your current heart health.
After taking your risk assessment for heart disease, learn which fat you shouldn’t avoid; what you need to know about women and heart disease; ways you can burn calories without exercise; and more by visiting our Heart Month website.
