According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, February is National Heart Month. What is the reason for this? Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the Unites States. One in every three deaths is attributed to heart disease and stroke, which is equal to over 2,200 deaths every single day. Cardiovascular disease is also very expensive, with $444 billion in health care expenses and lost productivity reported in 2010. With that in mind, the CDC and other parts of the government have launched the Million Hearts campaign.
The Million Hearts campaign has been launched in 2011, with a goal of preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes in the United States over the next five years. The CDC hopes to empower Americans to make healthier choices and improve the care for people who are in need of treatment. So what can you do for this initiative and for heart month? Watch what you eat, get some exercise, and try or continue to take L-arginine Plus. These are all great methods to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and put you in the right track to better health.
