February marks American Heart Month, the perfect time of year to commit to improving your overall health by focusing on lifestyle changes that will lead to a longer life.
In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for CAD through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medication.
As plaque builds up in the arteries of a person with heart disease, the inside of the arteries begins to narrow, which lessens or blocks the flow of blood. Heart disease is responsible for 1 in every 4 deaths in the US each year!
Small changes can make a big difference!
