Healthy-heart tips for a better life
Beat No. 1 killer facing St. Charles Parish
And make no mistake, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in Louisiana and the United States.
The illness is terrifying - and without treatment, can kill you in an instant, sometimes without any warning or previous symptoms.
In this report we’ll tell you how to prevent heart disease or, in cases where family history and genetics come into play, how to slow its progression and live a longer, happier, healthier life.
Paying attention to your health is more important than ever on the heels of the national United Health Foundation’s report naming Louisiana the “least healthy” state in the nation for 2006.
The picture painted by the respected research group isn’t pretty.
“Louisiana is 50th this year, a position it has held for 14 of the 15 editions of this report,” the foundation said in its grim analysis.
In our exclusive 10-part series, the Herald-Guide will take a closer look at the major health problems facing Louisiana and St. Charles Parish. As identifed by the state, the big issues are obesity, asthma, diabetes, mental health, premature death, smoking, children in poverty, the uninsured, flu and the heart disease we are addressing in this report. We will explore ways to preserve your health, and the health of your loved ones, through all available resources. We’ll provide you with wellness options. Don’t miss a single installment - your health is important.
