Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in Mississippi. You can prevent heart disease and stroke by simply getting active, eating smart, and getting regular checkups.
Mississippi is one of the top states in the nation for heart attack and stroke deaths. Obesity, smoking, diet and inactivity bring heart disease to Mississippians early in life, and cuts their lives short. Almost 8,000 Mississippians a year die from heart disease.
Whether you're young or old, taking simple steps now can lower your risk of heart disease — and they're the same steps that reduce your risk of cancer and diabetes as well.
