February is National Heart Month: How to reduce your risk of heart disease

By EEW Magazine // Heart Health

Share Nationally, February is recognized as National Heart Month. How's your heart health?

A big part of knowing that answer is to have your blood pressure checked, because if it's too high, you're at greater risk for heart disease or stroke.

"High blood pressure is a silent killer," says Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Karen Murphy. That's why in her home state, she's urging everyone, especially women, to get their blood pressure checked.

"There are often no signs and symptoms of high blood pressure, but it is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. In fact, the American Heart Association says heart disease kills approximately one in three women in the U.S. each year – more than breast cancer," explains Secretary Murphy.

Nearly 90 percent of Americans have one or more risk factor for heart disease and far too many adults don't know whether or not their pressure is up.

"The good news is that we can prevent and control heart disease. Get your blood pressure checked regularly and visit your health care provider to talk about your heart health. Simple lifestyle changes may save your life," says Murphy.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease each year.

Know the key risk factors:

  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity and being overweight
  • Poor diet
  • Physical inactivity 
  • Excessive alcohol use

Friday, February 3rd as American Heart Association "Wear Red Day."

As part of Go Red Week and National Heart Month, the American Heart Association has put together a number of events to bring awareness to the fact that cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death among Americans, yet can be prevented with education, action and a healthy lifestyle.
