World Heart Day

 

Today September 29 is World Heart Day, and today cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the world.

Cardiovascular diseases, which include heart and cerebrovascular diseases, are responsible for 17.5 million premature deaths. If we do not consider a change in our habits, these figures would increase, reaching 23 million deaths in 2030.

A healthy diet and the practice of regular physical activity are key to improving our cardiovascular health and enjoying a healthy heart.

What are the risk factors that can affect our cardiovascular health?

  • Eat and drink properly. A healthy and balanced diet provides our heart with the necessary fuel to enjoy a full life.
  • Attention with our blood glucose levels. If we suffer from diabetes that is not diagnosed and treated on time, we increase our chances of suffering from cardiovascular diseases.
  • Sport and physical activity will help us improve our physical and mental state, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Perform regular checks of your blood pressure. Excessively high blood pressure is a risk factor.
  • Control your cholesterol levels and BMI.
  • If you are a smoker, the time has come to quit. Your health and your finances will thank you.

From Neosalus we are committed to creating cardioprotected spaces and that cardiovascular emergencies are attended with the highest possible level of success.
