February is American Heart Month, and Valentine's Day is the perfect time to start taking steps to be heart-healthy. Exercise. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke. Limit alcohol use. Make healthy, low sodium food choices that include plenty of fruits and vegetables to help prevent the conditions that can damage your heart, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. And remember spread love, not germs. Wash hands often. Avoid close contact when you or someone you know is sick. Get a flu shot.
