Lakewood, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2015 -- February is American Heart Month. The American Heart Association sponsors a variety of activities throughout February in an effort to bring about cardiovascular disease awareness which is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States and includes heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
A spokesperson for MyIdentityDoctor.com, a company that specializes in medical alert jewelry for men and other medical bracelet for adults and children stated, "At MyIdentityDoctor.com we know how important awareness is to someone with a health issue. We not only encourage the American public to take part in the Heart Healthy activities and awareness programs the American Heart Association has planned for the month of February, we also proudly offer medical ID bracelet such as arrhythmia bracelets, heart patient bracelet, hypertension bracelet and many others to help those suffering from this number one killer to gain a little peace of mind in case of an emergency."
Heart Healthy Activities
People are encouraged to Wear Red on February 6th to increase awareness of cardiovascular disease. It's easy to participate; all that's required is to wear red on that day. For activities that involve a little bit more time and effort, look for community heart healthy walks. These walks are perfect opportunities to gain knowledge on heart health, as well as to decrease heart disease risks through the physical activity. Also, by wearing a hypertension bracelet or heart patient bracelet, the individual is taking an active part in increasing their own chances of survival if an emergency should take place, and they are unable to voice their condition to emergency personnel.

Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include:
- Having a close relative who suffers/suffered from heart disease
- Two out of every five African Americans suffer from hypertension
- Sedentary lifestyle – Get up and Move to keep off weight and reduce stress
- Smoking increases the risk of cardiovascular disease so quit this February!
