Valentines Day - Heart Health !

Cardiovascular disease is a group of conditions that includes stroke and heart disease that kills one in three people in the UK. While some contributing factors can’t be altered, we can change our lifestyle.

Heart disease is a huge problem in the UK with millions of us at risk of developing it within the next 10 years. But the good news is that there’s a lot you can do to look after your heart.

There are lots of lifestyle factors that can increase the risk of heart disease:

Smoking causes around one in three heart attacks and can increase your risk of developing heart disease by up to 80%.

Diet - A diet high in fats and salt and low in fruit and vegetables increases the risk of heart disease.

Exercise - only one in three men and one in four women in the UK actually get the exercise they need every week.
Cholesterol - Two in three people in the UK have raised cholesterol levels which puts them at more risk of heart disease.
