of facts and craps, news and views

So did you know that last Thursday was the World Heart Day? I know this entry is 2 days late but I'd love to share the message here anyway because this topic is very close to my, yep, heart.

Referring to the World Heart Federation website, World Heart Day was created in the year 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world's leading cause of death, claiming 17.1 million lives each year.

Almost 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided if the main risk factors, tobacco, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, are controlled.

So ask yourself. Are you a smoker? Are you practicing a healthy diet? Have you been physically active?

It's time to do the right thing. I know I haven't been eating right. I haven't been exercising right. But at least I can say proudly that I'm not a smoker. And those who are close to me would know why.

Because my father passed away when I was 7 due to heart failure. And why? Because he was a heavy smoker.

So I'm not gonna risk my life, the people around me, and maybe my future generation. I'm going to love my heart and I recommend you guys to do the same. :) Love your 
