My husband is currently taking a Nutrition class online and often shares some of what he learns with me. We recently watched a CNN report together that was a part of his class homework. The report was on heart attacks and heart disease, which is the number one killer of men and women in the United States.
Honestly, I have heard that statistic before, many times, and somehow it’s managed to roll off my back… but this 40 minute video really affected me. As someone who considers themselves a healthy eater and an overall healthy person, I was challenged to look at my own eating habits and see where I may be routinely eating my way towards a heart attack.
I know this may sound a little extreme, but since heart disease is literally the most likely thing that most of us will die from, it’s worth it to learn about it so we can make better lifestyle decisions to prevent it.
*Bonus: It’s not a slanted documentary with an agenda. It’s a straightforward CNN report that will benefit everyone who watches.
