We're surrounded by hearts in February. Along with the paper and chocolate versions, there are the human ones: the beating hearts of more than 300 million Americans.
Unfortunately, we're also surrounded by heart disease. In the U.S., it's the leading cause of death for both men and women. “Heart disease can be prevented and controlled,” says Harvey Hahn, MD, a Kettering Physician Network cardiologist. “February is Heart Month, and it serves as a reminder that we need to give our hearts some TLC.”
Even in a short month's time, you can do a lot to take better care of your heart.
