February is American Heart Month

The US Food and Drug Administration marked Valentine’s Day with an informative blog post about cardiovascular health:

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.  One in every three deaths in our country is from heart disease and stroke.  That’s equal to 2,200 deaths each day, every day, or more than 800,000 per year.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Million Hearts page explains how the federal government is working to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through efforts to improve treatment and prevention.
