DID YOU KNOW?
Cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, costs the United States $312.6 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications and lost productivity.

The leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, heart
disease, is the culprit behind 600,000 deaths a year. Certain conditions and lifestyle
factors may put people at higher risk for developing heart disease.
Help prevent heart disease by making healthy choices and better managing
medical conditions.

Eat Healthy - Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables to at least 5
servings a day.

Exercise Regularly - Regular physical activity leads to a healthy heart.
Schedule your workout on your calendar and treat them like an important
appointment you can’t miss.

Monitor Blood Pressure - As the single most significant factor for heart
disease, it is important to continually monitor your blood pressure.

Don’t Smoke - Smokers are two to three times more likely to die from
coronary heart disease than nonsmokers. Make a change, alter your routine
and go to places where smoking isn’t allowed .Don’t let past failed attempts
sabotage you now.

Limit Alcohol Use - In addition to raising blood pressure, too much alcohol
can add unneeded calories to your diet. If you drink alcoholic beverages,
have only a moderate amount - one drink a day for women, two drinks a day
for men.

Small changes lead to big rewards, get heart healthy today!
