Do we all have the opportunity to make healthy heart choices? Are we sometimes forced to make hard choices because we lack the knowledge, do not have a safe place to walk, are forced to eat unhealthy meals because that is the only available or affordable one? Our environment definitely has a huge impact on our ability to make heart-healthy choices.
If you, in your relatively privileged position still face challenges that prevent you from making heart-healthy choices then you can appreciate the enormity of the task ahead. Fortunately for us when we all come together even the small changes we make may have a dramatic effect.
A cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease such as heart disease and stroke is the world’s number one killer. This killer appears to be on the path to rid the world of humans and we certainly seem to be creating the right environment to enhance its mission.
