Heart disease: Know the risks

 

Rebekah Grey, student intern | February 3, 2015

 

February is American Heart Month, a time to raise awareness about our nation's heart health. It's an appropriate month to keep this in mind, since we see hearts everywhere as an image of love. By watching out for signs of heart disease, you can show love to yourself and those around you.

 

Cardiovascular disease, or CVD, is responsible for one out of every three deaths, making it the number one killer in the U.S. In addition, it is a leading cause of disability, which can prevent people from working and enjoying time with loved ones. Because Americans aren't aware of the risk of CVD and fail to act before it's too late, more than $300 billion is depleted every year in health care services, medications and lost productivity.

 

Anyone can be impacted by heart disease. The Center for Disease Control notes that one's risk can be affected by factors such as gender, ethnicity, and having close relatives with CVD. For instance, men are twice as likely as women are to die from preventable heart disease, and about two in five African- American adults have high blood pressure. However, in spite of this, many of the factors that contribute to CVD can be controlled.

 

Nearly half of Americans have at least one major risk factor, though many don't know it. The most important thing to do is act. Even if it seems ridiculous to consider the possibility of having heart disease, it doesn't hurt to check; in fact, it could save your life.

 

Many heart-related deaths might have been prevented by a simple change of lifestyle. Healthier habits, better living spaces, and increased management of medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can have a huge influence on one's heart.

 

Practical things that can be kept in check are diet, physical activity, tobacco and alcohol use, obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes.

 

If you see warning signs relating to heart health, whether it's yours or someone else's, show love and act as quickly as possible. Spread awareness during American Heart Month and join in the fight to save lives.

 

For more information, visit www.cdc.gov or www.heart.org.

January: National Blood Donor Month

 

Rebekah Grey, student intern | January 5, 2015   

 

The holidays are a season of gifts and cheer and after all the festivities are over we stand before a new year and another chance to make choices that count. Why not give back this year by participating in National Blood Donor Month?

 

Since 1970, January has been the month when organizations such as the American Red Cross and Carter BloodCare recognize those who donate blood for people in need. It may seem like one person's gift won’t help much, but every ounce counts.

 

Approximately 44,000 pints of blood are needed daily for accident victims, cancer patients, surgical candidates, children with blood disorders and countless others. Additionally, many lifesaving medical procedures require blood transfusions to be successful.

 

Not only can your donation directly save lives, but organizations can also use it in research and testing to protect the blood supply and fight deadly viruses such as HIV, West Nile virus, hepatitis B and C and Chagas disease.

           

Blood is more important than many realize. Giving some of yours is one of the most effective ways to help the community. A single donation can save the lives of up to three people and a special reason to give is not needed. Donors are ordinary people who decide to do something extraordinary.

 

There are other ways to help as well. Donating centers are always in need of volunteers, and you can even host a blood drive through your church or other organization. Perhaps easiest of all is telling your friends about the critical need for blood.

 

Anyone who wants to lend a helping hand can head over to the Carter BloodCare Garland location at 6850 North Shiloh Road, Suite V. More blood drive locations and additional information is available at www.carterbloodcare.org or www.redcross.org.
