Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. This is an especially sobering statistic when you consider that many of the risk factors for heart disease involve lifestyle choices. Physical exercise is one of the keys to keeping your heart healthy, and a lack of exercise can have scary results: about 250,000 deaths occur each year as a result of inactivity. Check out this infographic from a San Jose heart hospital to see the link between exercise and heart health. You’ll also find easy tips for incorporating more activity into your life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator and riding your bicycle to work in beautiful San Jose. Please share with your friends and family, and take care of each other’s hearts by being active together!
