Our short February is a month of many “National” awareness campaigns, such as National Black History Month.
Today’s blog focus, now that we got past Ground Hog’s Day, is for February as National Heart Health Month, or American Heart Month.
‘Tis truly amazing that this four-chambered muscular pump may do its magic several billion times in our lives.
What’s the Big Deal?
“Cardio” problems are the tragic, top Morbidity cause for Americans. This is true, even in our pandemic age of SARS viruses and co-morbidity…
Please note: “heart diseases are LARGELY preventable.”
Sadly, our American killing field of Heart Disease is unlevel. Two statistical  examples of canted cardio-deaths are:
- Males suffer more heart diseases than females.
- African Americans die from heart disease more frequently than Whites.
As your Koach, I try to set an example of healthy heart living, with NO Smoking, exercise, clean eating, and de-stressing as much as humanly possible whatever life throws me. Recall from KABOOMER that Diets are a leading cause of death in America, Double Oy.
Both my Mom had Dad had congestive heart failures which accelerated their funerals. It is very likely that you too know someone near and dear whose heart health was sub-par.
Simple to say, yet regrettably hard to change our inherited or ingrained ways. Yet, yes we can as this dual NIH graphic suggests!
Heart Health is critical to your KABOOMER physical Banking for increased stamina and “stayin’ alive.”
I’ll close with this:
Be well, stay safe, and honor your”Pump.”
