“You’ve got that loving feeling” The month of February recognizes heart health and heart disease. The heart is one of the most important functions and organs in your body. It functions as a power supply to pump blood throughout your circulatory system and provides oxygen rich nutrients for metabolic waste. The heart pumps an average of 2.5 billion beats in a lifetime. When the heart stops, so does the body. If heart disease runs in your family, or genetic, cardiovascular disease is often prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices.
