Heart disease is Australia’s leading single cause of death, with 18,590 deaths attributed to heart disease in Australia in 2017. Heart disease kills one Australian every 28 minutes.
February is #REDFEB, a time to celebrate love. It’s also a month-long initiative by Heart Research Australia to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke, how we can help ourselves take care of our hearts, and spread the word about the importance of recognising warning signs of these diseases to reduce their impact on our families, friends, and communities.
We encourage you to LOVE YOUR HEART by giving up those not-so-healthy food addictions and swapping them with something more playful and productive.
