February is American Heart Month, a time for everyone to focus on their cardiovascular health.
Heart disease, a leading cause of death in the United States, creates an enormous burden for people, communities, and healthcare providers and systems. Consider the following heart disease facts provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- One person dies from cardiovascular disease every 34 seconds in the United States.
- Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing 382,820 people in 2020.
- Every year, about 805,000 people in the United States have a heart attack.
Fortunately, healthy habits like being physically active, getting proper nutrition, maintaining a healthy weight, and refraining from smoking can help strengthen your heart and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack.
