Did you know…Cardiovascular diseases are the NUMBER ONE killer in the United States. Someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined!
Take a look at this map! Do you think lifestyle has something to do with it?
Do you know someone at risk? Do you have heart disease in your family? Are you doing everything you can to help prevent this disease from impacting your family?
It is so important to get this information out there. I really believe that Americans DO NOT KNOW what to do to get and stay healthy. And that they do not have the proper FEAR of what their bad habits will do to them and their families.
Our culture is set up to eat badly. Our restaurant choices are killing us! The majority of the food in our grocery stores is killing us! The areas in red on the map above have the least healthy choices available. We are set up to overbook our lives and not make time for exercise. Somewhere between 20-30% of Americans workout every day….wow!
My mother’s brother (my uncle) died a year ago at the young age of 56!! Read her bio here!
A great deal of my family members are already showing signs of heart disease. FIThubby’s family is the same way. His grandfather was in his 50s when he died of heart disease. We are aware we will be passing along these genes to our children and that makes it even more important to teach our children how to take care of their bodies with exercise and proper nutrition!
