The Healthy Living Newsletter brings you information to optimize your health, lifestyle, and workstyle.
I recently appeared on a PBS show called “Heart Disease: The Silent Killer”, which included four prominent cardiologists. Heart disease is a silent killer because you can go along for many years thinking that you are just fine, and then boom, it is too late. According to recent statistics from the American Heart Association, over 7 million Americans will have a heart attack this year. That is a startling statistic.
Men typically experience significant symptoms when having a heart attack, including the proverbial "elephant on the chest" and profuse sweating, but women often have such subtle symptoms that they may not even recognize them. Because they are so subtle, women frequently do not get to the hospital in time, and as a result, for many women, the first symptom may be a heart attack or death.
February is Heart Month, so it is a good time to examine your health. Take Care of Your Heart is an article addressing how to find out if you are at risk and if your symptoms relate to your heart.
Please make a note to watch “Heart Disease: The Silent Killer”. It will air on PBS in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area on February 8, 2004 at noon (McCuistion Program). I will let you know when it will be broadcast nationally on PBS as soon as I know.
Thanks for reading this. Until next time, wishing you much health and happiness.
