February is National Heart Month!
For National Heart Month, we’ve gone red on our website!
Your heart is one of your most valuable organs. By pumping blood through the blood vessels that make up the circulatory system, it spreads oxygen and nutrients to all parts of your body and helps to remove waste that the body can’t use.
Over this month, we’ll be sharing facts and advice on heart health, what to do if you think you might be having a heart attack, how to keep your heart healthy and so on. Keep your eyes on our Facebook page because we’ll not only be writing here, but we’ll be posting there as well!
Note: The American Heart Association estimates that over 103 million Americans have high blood pressure. That’s over half the adults in the U.S.! Do you know why high blood pressure is unhealthy? In our next article, we’ll go over what high blood pressure is and why it’s such a problem.
