“Every moment of the day, your heart is pumping blood throughout your body. In silent moments, you can hear the thump-thump-thump of its demanding work. Do you take your heart for granted? Most of us will have heart trouble at some point in our lives. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and men in the United States. But you can take steps now to lower your risk.
“About 1 out of 3 people in America will die of heart disease,” says NIH heart disease expert Dr. David C. Goff, Jr. “And about 6 out of every 10 of us will have a major heart disease event before we die.”
Heart disease develops when the blood vessels supplying the heart become clogged with fatty deposits, or plaque. After the blood vessels narrow, blood flow to the heart is reduced. That means oxygen and nutrients can’t get to the heart as easily.” Information and picture shared from: https://newsinhealth.nih.gov/2017/11/healthy-body-happy-heart

“Americans will eat more than 46 million turkeys this Thanksgiving. Keep your family and friends safe with simple food safety tips from USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service:
Read labels carefully. Temperature labels show if the bird is fresh or frozen. If you plan to serve a fresh turkey, buy it no more than two days before Thanksgiving.
Do not wash the turkey. This spreads pathogens onto kitchen surfaces. The only way to kill bacteria that causes foodborne illness is to fully cook the turkey.
Refrigerate leftovers within two hours to prevent bacteria from growing on the food.”
Flu season is coming–that time of year when if you get sick, at best, you have aches, pains, and a few days of misery. At worst, the flu can lead to serious complications. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to friends and loved ones.
