February is American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month!  The fact is, Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.  That's approximately one woman every minute. 

A healthy lifestyle is yours to follow if you want it. Your diet, weight, physical activity and exposure to tobacco smoke all affect your cholesterol level and heart disease risk — and these factors may be controlled by:
•Eating a heart-healthy diet
•Enjoying at least 150 minutes a week moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, and more than two days a week muscle strengthening activities
•Avoiding tobacco smoke
