Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer for Americans. One in three deaths is caused by heart attack or stroke, amounting to about 800,000 fatalities each year. Even if one survives a heart attack or stroke, the condition often leads to disabilities and loads of expenses. “Fortunately, there are many simple steps we can take to prevent heart disease, such as eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and not smoking,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius in a statement today. The HHS department aims to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2016 in a program aptly named “Million Hearts,” which launched in September 2011. And just how will they pull this off? The program seeks to empower Americans to make healthy choices, by avoiding tobacco and reducing red meat and sodium intake, as well as improving care for people who already need treatment, by teaching them the ABCs. A: Aspirin for folks at risk; B: Blood Pressure Control; C: Cholesterol Control; and S: Smoking Cessation.
The American Heart Association, too, plays a big role in American Heart month. In fact, today is National Wear Red Day, to bring attention to cardiovascular disease and its threat to women.
