Love Your Heart This Valentine's Day Hearts are synonymous with Valentine's Day, and February is the perfect time to love your heart for Ameri- can Heart Month. Heart disease is the lead- ing cause of death in the United States, affecting one in four people every year. For women, that number is one in three. Mississippi ranks first in the nation for car- diovascular disease related deaths, with a rate of 250 deaths per 1,000 population annually. It's an epidemic that has affected hundreds of thou- sands of people, regardless of age, sex or race. It's not just a man's disease anymore. The Southeast - especial- ly Mississippi and its neigh- boring states - lead the na- tion in heart disease deaths, with rates nearly half as high as the national average. Mississippi, named Amer- ica's unhealthiest state in 2014 by America's Health Rankings for the third year in a row, ranks poorly in obe- sity (No. 49), physical activ- ity (No. 50) and smoking (No. 47). All of these factors play a major role in heart disease, which despite being down 38 percent across the nation since 1990, is Still respon- sible for the death of 25 per- cent of Mississippians each year according to the Mis- sissippi State Department of Health's Vital Statistics Bureau. For the last decade, the American Heart Associa- tion's "Go Rod" campaign has helped raise awareness of the No.1 killer of women: heart disease, which is dead- lier than all forms of cancer combined. The majority of deaths due to heart disease can be prevented, but de- spite progress in awareness and prevention, the financial Valmli.e's is Saturday...

The students were di- vided into teams and visited eight sta- tions to complete activities. Students did 100 seconds of exercises, made 100 link paper chains, made towers using 100 red cups and 100 toothpicks and mini marshmallows, made 100 fruit loop necklaces, and much morel It was a great way to culminate the first 100 days of school! Shown dur- ing the fun day, from left to right, are Madison Elam, Isabella Ramos, Jack Orgeron, Jacob Sessions, RJ Fish- er, Nicholas Darbonne, and Bryson McKlemurry who made the number 100 with toothpicks and mini marsh- mallows. -- WCCA Photo burden of heart disease and stroke is about $300 billion a year. It's time we start look- ing at a cheaper way to live longer. Eating the right foods is a good start. The Mediter- ranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish, has been shown to help reduce the risk of heart dis- ease and cancer. The DASH diet, developed by the Na- tional Institutes of Health, is a simple eating plan that can lower your blood pressure and help you lose weight and stay healthy for a lifetime. Along with the right diet, maintaining an exercise regimen has been shown to decrease the risk of heart- related diseases. The rec- ommended 30 - 60 minutes at least three times a week can help keep your weight under control and reduce the chances of devel6.'mg life-threatening issues uch as high blood pressure and diabetes. If you are a smoker, kick- ing the habit is not easy, but it could save your life. The chemicals found in tobacco are not only addictive, but le- thal: about one in five deaths can be attributed to smok- ing. There is good news - af- ter one year of not smoking, your risk for a heart attack falls dramatically, and after 10 years the risk of devel- oping lung cancer drops by hal. Before taking steps to improve your heart and your health, talk to your family doctor.
