Heart Month
Dina's Weekly Feature


February is Heart Month. Nothing could be more appropriate as many people celebrate Valentine’s Day. While many chocolates and sweets will be consumed for the occasion, we should keep our heart health in mind.

Some ways to improve the health of our hearts include eating more fruits and vegetables as well as maintaining a healthy weight. Find out more about improving your heart health, cholesterol, and blood pressure from the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Remember, heart care is important, so be good to your heart! After all, the heart works tirelessly throughout a person’s lifetime. In an average lifetime, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times without taking a break. To learn more about this vital and fascinating organ, visit “The Heart: An Online Exploration
