Even though Valentine’s Day is in February, it’s not just the month for lovers. It is also American Heart Month which reminds us all to take care of our heart and consider our risk factors. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women each year, leading to the deaths of about 610,000 people each year in the United States. Believe it or not, heart disease can happen at any age. American Heart Month teaches us the ways we can help reduce our risks while eliminating those we have control over. Get involved in American Heart Month. Spread the word about strategies for preventing heart disease, living heart-healthy lives and don’t forget to use the hashtag #AmericanHeartMonth.
