February is National Heart Month. There are about 2.6 million people in the UK living with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Every single one of us has a heart which means every one of us is at potential risk.
Understanding heart conditions isn’t an easy task – there are lots of different types and knowing how the heart works is more helpful when trying to learn about these conditions. But looking at the facts will benefit yourself and the people you love in the long run.
Managing your diet, keeping fit, and watching your blood pressure are just a few important factors. The British Heart Foundation’s webpage has information about heart diseases and how you can beat them. And, don’t forget to get your free fundraising kit!
