This February the American Heart Association invites you to learn about the importance of heart health. Although more than 27 million Americans are diagnosed with heart disease-the leading cause of death in both men, and women–there are actions that you can take to prevent this common ailment:
- Watch your weight.
- Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
- Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
- If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
- Get active and eat healthy.
