February is

American Heart Month
Chances are, we all know someone affected by heart disease and stroke, because about 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of 1 death every 38 seconds. But together we can change that! The biggest part of living healthy comes down to simply making healthy choices. While you can’t change things like age and family history, the good news is that even modest changes to your diet and lifestyle can improve your heart health and lower your risk by as much as 80 percent. http://newsroom.heart.org/events/february-is-american-heart-month-6669831

Low Vision Awareness Month
Low vision is a visual impairment that cannot be corrected by standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery.  Having low vision can make activities like reading, shopping, cooking, writing and watching TV hard to do. Raise awareness about vision rehabilitation by downloading and sharing the informative booklet about living with low vision at https://nei.nih.gov/nehep/lvam

Did you Know: Cholesterol-free can be bad for your cholesterol

Food labels may say that it is cholesterol-free, however, that does not mean that the food is good for your cholesterol levels. Trans fats, which are cholesterol-raising, naturally have no cholesterol but can be detrimental to your cholesterol levels. Trans fats can be found in many fried foods and baked goods. Trans fat, such as partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and saturated fats are not good for your cholesterol levels and should be avoided as much as possible
