February 19,2015 Sarah Stapleton

We've been talking about hearts a lot on this blog lately (cardiac studiesblood donation, etc.) because here at Vince & Associates we think the heart is pretty important. After all, you’re not going to be doing much of anything with a bum heart. It’s kind of vital to, you know, your entire body

The CDC and Million Hearts®, a national effort in the US to prevent 1 million heart attacks over the next two years, are encouraging everyone to “make blood pressure control your goal.” Uncontrolled blood pressure is the #1 cause of heart disease and stroke and affects over 67 million Americans. If you or someone you know has uncontrolled blood pressure, then we encourage you to check out this link to the CDC website. They have put together several excellent resources to help you in your quest to “make control your goal” and start getting healthy for heart month. Additionally, theAmerican Heart Association® is doing a lot to promote awareness and heart health this February. Visit their website to find tons of useful information. They have information on the warning signs of heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrest and information on the risks for heart disease and stroke. There’s even an interactive library with animations explaining high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases. Heart disease can often be prevented by eating healthy foods and making some different life choices, but understanding the risk factors and being informed can help keep you fit and strong. Take a look at some of the resources in this blog and let’s get healthy for Heart Month! .
