February is American Heart Month. Are you at Risk?

February is American Heart Month. Are you at Risk?

Did you know that cardiovascular disease (CVD) – including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure – is the #1 killer of women AND men in the United States. It is the leading case of disability, and costs the US over $300 billion annually.1

Many risk factors are involved with CVD, some are controllable while others are not. Because of genetics and family history, even race and ethnicity, we are not affected by CVD the same. Geography plays a part in the healthy or risky lifestyles that are encouraged or accepted in our surroundings. That said, controlling the risk factors we can, makes a huge difference and positive impact on our lives.

A few pointers on getting yourself on track with your health and keeping yourself on the right path.
