Heart Health Tip
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 of February, the Courier will offer a tip to help readers avoid the risks of heart disease.
Today's tip: According to the Healthline website, keeping your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides in check are important for good heart health. Learn the optimal levels, and don't skip your regular physical exams.
