Independence, OH (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Life Line Screening, the leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings in the United States, is taking action during American Heart Month to help raise awareness for heart disease.
Heart disease remains the number one killer of Americans, and almost half of all people in the U.S. have at least one of the top three risk factors for the disease: high blood pressure, high LDL (bad) cholesterol or smoking. Life Line Screening has always been an advocate of healthy lifestyles that can lower risk factors like these, and this month is no different.
With the combination of National Wear Red Day on February 1 and the entire month being designated as American Heart Month, heart disease and cardiovascular conditions have been at the forefront of the efforts of Life Line Screening. The preventive screening company is proud to have participated in Wear Red Day, a kick-off to American Heart Month when numerous employees sported their red clothing and accessories as a visual reminder of heart disease awareness.
The leader in preventive health screenings also released a new screening promotion aimed to raise awareness for heart disease risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high glucose. Individuals interested in cardiovascular screenings can purchase a screening package valued at $139 or more and receive a free heart risk assessment with their package. Interested individuals should call 877-754-9631 to access the free heart risk assessment.
Aligning with the most prevalent heart disease risk factors, Life Line Screening is constantly urging individuals to become proactive in lowering their risk for certain diseases, especially heart disease. Foods that are loaded with omega-3’s and vitamins are great for keeping blood pressure and cholesterol at healthy levels, and with the release of Life Line Screening’s new heart health infographic, individuals interested in improving their heart health can learn about delicious, enjoyable foods that also promote a strong heart.
