The Science of Million Hearts™

Family gathered in a kitchen, near a counter top full of fresh vegetables.
In March, we celebrated National Nutrition Month, and this month, we celebrate World Health Day and National Minority Health Month—for all, it’s important to keep the ABCS in mind.
Healthy eating, including reducing sodium and avoiding trans fat, can make a big difference for B and C—blood pressure control and cholesterol management. Focusing attention on disparities in cardiovascular health across these two important risk factors is a major focus of Million Hearts™ in April.
We applaud the World Health Organization for making the theme for World Health Day 2013 "Preventing and Controlling High Blood Pressure." We know how important blood pressure control is to preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017!
