With heart disease being the leading cause of death in the United States, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) celebrates American Heart Month to encourage heart healthy habits. Events like National Wear Red Day (February 2nd) bring attention to the need for heart disease awareness and prevention. Most people don’t realize that simple actions like getting your blood pressure and cholesterol checked regularly can help detect and prevent serious health problems.
