Cardiovascular Disease Prevention
Heart disease and stroke are currently two of the three leading causes of death in Canada. Cardiovascular disease prevention comes in many forms as there are several different risk factors. There are those that you cannot control, such as age or family history, and those that can be controlled through a healthy lifestyle. In terms of controllable risk factors, physical activity is one of the most important due to its link to many of the other risk factors such as obesity, and diabetes. People who are physically inactive are at twice the risk for cardiovascular disease. Physical activity can be incorporated into any life through regularly scheduled exercise sessions, or by altering your lifestyle by taking the stairs or walking to work. For those looking to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease, Allied Health Services is undergoing the development of an exercise program for cardiovascular disease prevention.
