February is Heart Month

While we usually associate hearts in February to Valentine’s Day, did you know it’s also Heart Month?
According to 2017-2018 data from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System, heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Canada, second only to cancer. Approximately 2.6 million Canadian adults aged 20 and older live with ischemic heart disease, the most common type of heart disease.

This month-long awareness campaign provides us with an opportunity to focus on the efforts we can make to improve our heart health. Making healthy changes in your daily routine can decrease your risk of heart disease and the Golden Circle offers many ways to help you help your heart!
