Your heart is important. Yet, many people don’t pay enough attention to their heart health. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 3 billion times -- pumping an amount of blood that equals about 1 million barrels. Even when a person is at rest, the heart is continuously hard at work. So if we know that our hearts are important we should begin taking strides to take care of our heart health. To stay healthy, your heart along with diet and exercise must complement each other.
This is why SIRC has compiled articles on why you should care about your
heart health, eating tips, recommendations for physical activity and
information on how stress affects your heart.
