By Jeffrey Sterling, MD May 22, 2019

Introduction

February is American Heart Month! Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Every year, one in four deaths is caused by heart disease. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Straight, No Chaser is proudly offering this guide to provide you with knowledge and empower you.

What You Can Do

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.

For more information, you can visit the American Heart Association. In the meantime, we offer you a series of our our blog posts to provide you a variety of information.

How can American Heart Month make a difference?

American Heart Month

Use this month to raise awareness about heart disease and how people can prevent it — both at home and in the community.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Encourage you friends and family to make small changes, like using spices to season their food instead of salt.
  • Motivate teachers and administrators to make physical activity a part of the school day. This can help students start good habits early.
  • Have your local organizations consider inviting doctors and nurses to speak about ways to prevent heart disease.
