Heart Health Month Tip - Feb. 5
The American Heart Association is observing Heart Health Month throughout February to alert people that heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women, even though this disease is controllable and preventable.
Each day in February, the Courier will offer a tip to help readers avoid the risks of heart disease.
Today's tip: Stop smoking! This nasty habit is one of the top controllable risk factors for heart disease. The American Medical Association and the American Heart Association recommend stubbing out this addiction to make a huge difference in your overall health.
