INFOGRAPHIC: Eat Your Heart Out to Lower Your Heart Disease Risk

admin - February 13, 2013

Almost half of all Americans  (49%) have at least one of the three major risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high LDL (bad) cholesterol and smoking. Two of these risk factors can be controlled through diet and exercise. Not to mention, many of the people who have these risk factors don’t even realize they have them.

February is American Heart Month and is observed to spread awareness for heart disease and lower the number of people affected by this deadly health condition. One way to spread awareness is to alert people to the heart disease risk factors to look for and ways to lower them.

Life Line Screening has put together a fun, shareable infographic with a contest that offers some great ideas for foods that offer heart-strengthening nutrients you may not be aware of. For instance, did you know you can eat pizza that’s heart healthy? This is just one of many tasty foods you can munch on while lowering dangerous heart disease risk factors like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Here is what you can do:

  • Check out the infographic below for more scrumptious heart-healthy foods, and feel free to share with your friends.
  • Submit your own heart healthy recipe by commenting on this post and qualify to win a
    free health screening and a subscription to Eating Well magazine.
  • The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 1
  • The winner will be selected on Friday, March 15

Good luck!
