Celebrating Your Heart and Heart-Health Awareness & American Heart Month.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American women and men, responsible for one in four deaths in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, someone in the U.S. has a heart attack every 40 seconds, and every year 790,000 Americans have a heart attack. For 210,000 people this is their second heart attack. Unfortunately, once you have had a heart attack, your chance of having another one increases. The good news is that there are actions you can take to protect your heart.
