Marcos Breton’sSacramento Beearticle“For peace of mind, get a heart test”on Feb. 18, focuses on preventive care during American Heart Month. Mr. Breton writes about his own echocardiogram experience at Mercy General Hospital.
Preventive care is increasingly important with heart disease on the rise. He writes, “Heart disease is not just a fear for senior citizens. People at middle age or younger are increasingly vulnerable because risk factors such as Type 2 diabetes and obesity are more common among younger people. More U.S. women die from heart disease than from any other cause, including cancer.”
