Healthy Heart Month

Join the FDHA in wearing RED to raise awareness about Heart Health Month! In the U.S., heart disease remains the number 1 cause of death for men and women. According to the American Heart Association (AMA), an American will have a heart attack about every 40 seconds. Also, an American will have a stroke almost every 40 seconds. Preventtion includes: stop smoking tobacco and avoiding second hand smoke; engage in physical activity for at least 2.5 hours a week; eat fruits and vegetables, while avoiding food / drinks high in sugar and salts; and maintaining a healthy body weight. Knowing your numbers for blood sugar (glucose), blood pressure and cholesterol are just as important.
