Despite how far we’ve come, heart disease is still the top cause of deaths in the US. According to statistics presented by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), it’s estimated that 785,000 Americans had coronary events in 2010, and 470,000 of them had a recurrent attack. In fact, just about every 25 seconds one person has a cardiac event.
One of the biggest problems when it comes to heart health is that many myths still abound. Doctors are still missing critical symptoms, are doing the wrong diagnostic testing, and prescribing drugs where natural remedies could help.
Since February is American Heart Month, I want to enlist your help in debunking the myths and communicating critical information that can help save lives.
Throughout the month of February, I’ll be posting the most dangerous heart health myths on my Facebook page...
- If you haven't "liked" my Facebook page yet, I urge you to do that now so you don’t miss a single one of these important heart tips.
- Plus, each time you see a tip I encourage you to share it on your Facebook page to help spread the truth heart disease.
- If at least 1,000 people share just one of the tips by the end of the month, there will be a special gift for each of you.
But special gift aside, the real reason that I’m urging you to share these heart health tips is that together we can help save lives!
