The World Heart Foundation created World Heart Day, an international campaign to inform people about cardiovascular diseases – the biggest cause of death in the world – because every year, over 17 million people die from heart disease. Not only on this day, but every day, we should look into preventative measures to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Being overweight, smoking, having diabetes, and hypertension are not only risk factors for CVD, but also for severe forms of coronavirus for people with CVD. Nobody know the course the COVID-19 pandemic will take, but we do know that taking care of our heart right now is more important than ever.
BE PROACTIVE – Know your genetic predisposition to various types of cardiac conditions (heart diseases) and TAKE ACTION BASED ON YOUR RESULTS TODAY! Our Hereditary Risk Assessment will give you the advance knowledge of your risk of developing heart disease, which can help you make decisions that will limit this risk.
