Wear red day-raising awareness for heart disease
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute established this campaign to help bring awareness to the fact that 610,000 people die every year from heart disease, making it the most lethal disease in the United States, and around the world. Heart disease can be caused by many things including: poor diet, lack of exercise, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and alcohol consumption. All of these can be preventable. Age is a huge factor in susceptibility to heart disease, our susceptibility triples with every new decade. It’s never too early to start being aware of this life-destroying disease. Take control and make an appointment with your doctor to have a check-up on your heart to see how healthy you are.
There are so many ways to keep your heart healthy. If you have the potential to get heart disease, start by making small changes in your diet and start exercising for thirty minutes everyday.
Having quality health care is very useful for keeping your health in order. Celebrate today by wearing red to raise awareness for heart disease.
