It’s American Heart Month: Discover Your Risk of Having a Heart Attack

Since 1963, every U.S. president has proclaimed February as American Heart Month in order to raise public awareness of heart disease and help people prevent having a heart attack.

And while we’ve made some gains, in this country heart disease is still the leading killer of both men and women. Well over one million Americans go through the horrific experience of having a heart attack every year.

And sadly, nearly half of those who die from having a heart attack each year never show prior symptoms of heart disease. That means millions of Americans suffer from heart disease right now and don’t even know it.
Risk of Having a Heart Attack? Take the Simple Heart Test Now!
That’s why renowned heart disease expert Dr. Chauncey Crandall developed a quick and free online Simple Heart Test to help people discover their risk of having a heart attack — before it’s too late to intervene and repair the damage.

Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at the world-renowned Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Florida, practices on the cutting edge of heart medicine.

“Most adults, especially those in middle age, are basically sitting ducks when it comes to having a heart attack,” Dr. Crandall warns. “That’s unfortunate, because heart disease is totally unnecessary. With the proper knowledge, and a few simple steps, heart disease can be prevented, reversed, or even cured. You really can prevent a heart attack.”

In this free online Simple Heart Test, people can discover if they are personally at risk of having a heart attack. Not only that, but they will find out if they are getting enough exercise to strengthen the heart, and learn about special heart-protective foods.

“The information gained in this two-minute Simple Heart Test could significantly reduce your risk of having a heart attack, and maybe even save your life,” said Dr. Crandall. “That’s vital, because knowing your risk for heart disease gives you a good starting point to prevent a heart attack or even reverse this deadly disease.”
