February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, each year 715,000 Americans suffer from a heart attack and 600,000 die of heart disease.
The good news is heart disease can often be prevented by making healthy choices and managing health conditions. Heart Month is designed to spread awareness about heart disease and encourage people to live heart healthy lives.
