Every 39 seconds, an adult dies from a heart attack, stroke, or related disease.

These conditions claim the lives of more than 800,000 adults each year and are largely preventable.

Here’s what you can do to reduce your risk:

  • Take your prescription medications to control blood pressure or cholesterol.
  • Eat a healthy diet that’s low in salt, fat, and cholesterol, and full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Take a brisk 10-minute walk, three times a day, five days a week.
  • Don’t smoke. If you do, quit now.  B96 Cares!
